[Amazon.ca] Amazon.ca Philips Beard Trimmers Limited Time Deal 24.99/44.99 (32%&46% off)

Amazon.ca limited time offer on two Philips beard trimmer models.

7000 model for 24.99 (46% discount):
https://www.amazon.ca/Philips-Vacuum-Tr ... 163&sr=1-1

5000 model for 44.99 (32% discount):
https://www.amazon.ca/Philips-Lithium-s ... 163&sr=1-4

I've tried quite a few beard trimmers and I like the 7000 model. This is the cheapest I have ever seen it. It works well for keeping stubble or a beard and the vacuum feature keeps things a little tidier.

I have the candian 5000 model, and its been great. I was right about the pull the trigger on the 7000 but its not waterproof, so no dice for me. Will have to look for an alternative option, as I exclusively shave in the shower.

The battery life on Phillips trimmers is horrible. After about 1.5 years, they can barely hold a charge.

Great find!
I also have the 7000 and like it. It’s a bit finicky to reseat the plastic guard back on after cleaning but otherwise it’s a solid trimmer.

A lot of complaints about the vacuum not working well and the removable blade breaking in the 7000 so decided to go with the 5000

I much prefer the multigroom 7000. It’s like a Swiss knife, plus 6 hours of use per charge and 5 years warranty. IIRC, it was available at Costco for $46.99

I had the 7000 since February 2017 and the head's plastic part broke a few days ago. Holds charge pretty well though

One of the two plastic tabs of the head that go into the unit right?

Give them a call, they replaced it under warranty for me last week. Shipping was extremely quick from America - about 2 days FedEx for such a baby small part. Also, they've modified the head now (I guess after a billion complaints) - there's like a lever now between the tab, so that it doesn't bend and snap.

I have this vacuum beard trimmer since November 2017. The vacuum was weak and hair clippings still fall into the sink, however for an older person like my father, it's great as he does not have to worry about making a huge mess. Battery I agree with you greatly. I single charge holds up about a 4ish weeks worth of shaving (brothers and father using it too).

Love the adjustable comb option for smooth and even shaving. Really helps for head hair when the barber's cut needs a correction or you have one side with a bit too much hair and need to cut the height accurately

Wait, is the 5000 series supposed to be better than 7000?

That hasn't been my experience at all! After more than a year it seems to still hold its charge as it did new.

Probably left it on the charge 24/7 until the battery was ruined

I would personally avoid anything with a vacuum. They just seem to get in the way making it more difficult when doing clean lines. They also seem to break/become weak very quickly.

Perhaps it was just the old model I had but the benefit is not great enough. The multigroom line is better.

I keep short stubble and the multigroom line only goes down to 1mm. I like the .5mm that the beard trimmers do.

^^Thisi^^

I wish that they were corded trimmers. Or at least had a battery that could be easily changed.

This shouldn't happen with a properly designed charging system. Leaving it plugged in shouldn't bugger the battery.
It's not like this cutting edge, proprietary technology.
