Of the many companies that make electric razors, Panasonic has stood out over the years for the combination of low price, excellent features, durable design, and adapting to new trends. For the past few decades, Panasonic has managed to maintain their status as being one of the companies that provides new features to meet new trends.
It was not all that long ago when men would only shave their face and trim their beards, sideburns, and mustaches. The times have certainly changed with more men looking for electric razors that are adaptable to shave different parts of their bodies. The Panasonic ER-GB80-S Body and Beard Trimmer represents another step forward in meeting the demands of men when it comes to providing an all-around electric shaver.
However, does this new body and beard trimmer by Panasonic live up to the standards of previous models, or is it just a flash in the pan?
There are several features that the ER-GB-80-S offers for men that are looking to trim beards, sideburns, mustaches, and unwanted body hair. For many men, the features alone are a good selling point and provide some good reasons to purchase this model even if they already have a traditional electric razor.

The features start with the angled stainless steel blades that are designed to be super-sharp, long-lasting, and hypoallergenic for sensitive skin.

The trimmer dial uses the three comb attachments so that you can set the precise length of facial hair that you want remaining.

Add to this a design that allows you to shave either with or without a cord. The substantial battery power lasts for 50 minutes of operation before it needs recharging.

It should be noted that the Panasonic ER-GB80-S Body and Beard Trimmer is an award-winning design, but that is not the only advantage it brings to men looking for a better hair trimmer and shaver.
Excellent Trimming: Because the blades are extra-sharp and angled at 45-degrees, the result is precision trimming that is quick, effective, and on target. The angle of the blades allows for quick cutting that is close to the skin even through the toughest of beards. Plus, the acute angle lets you sculpt your beard, mustache, or sideburns precisely so that you get the look you want.
Different Settings: There are three trimmer heads that attach quickly so you can trim your beard, mustache, or sideburns with the precision you want quickly and easily. The A comb allows for very close trimming when you want that hint of a beard. The B comb provides for a fuller appearance while the 1.5MM attachment is designed for body hair on sensitive areas so that you get the look you want without irritating the skin.
Ergonomic Design: One of the issues with many body and beard trimmers is that they are not well designed to reach difficult areas such as under the chin, along the jawline, or other places on the body without being difficult or tiring to use. This version offers an excellent, ergonomic design that include solid grips along the handle of the device so that you can shave and trim with confidence.
Travel: The trimmer includes a universal voltage package as part of its recharging system, so you can travel to different countries and use this device. For those who travel a lot, this is a great body and beard trimmer to take with you as it fits easily into a travel kit.
Sensitive Skin: One of the more understated advantages that this razor offers is how it protects sensitive skin while trimming. Because the blades are stainless steel and hypoallergenic, it creates a condition that protects the skin so that there is little to no reaction even on sensitive skin. This includes body hair in sensitive areas as well, making it a trimmer that can be used by most men.
However, despite all the advantages, there are a few issues that this Panasonic trimmer has which needs to be considered before deciding whether to purchase.
From customers who have not been all that pleased with the unit, the main complaint is that it does not provide enough power. There are a few reports that the trimmer is somewhat slow and will tug the hair instead of cutting. However, it should be noted that such observations are few and far between and it is possible that the complaints are based on defective units or those with lower than normal battery power.
Overall, the Panasonic ER-GB80-S Body and Beard Trimmer is a remarkable electric shaver that is well designed for men who want to trim more than just their facial hair. The ergonomic design, sharp blades, and substantial power provide the right type of trimming needs to sculpt facial hair and shave unwanted body hair all in the same unit.
In addition, the different attachments make this one of the best beard trimmers on the market today. Combine this with the noted advantages that Panasonic electric razors offer in their durable build and you have a body and beard trimmer that is simply one of the best.
