The 3 Best Stubble Trimmers for the Most Even Stubble [Jun. 2017]

The 3 best stubble trimmers (review)If you’re not inclined to grow a full beard or don’t like the way you look in one, then consider stubble. After all, stubble is hot. Studies have proven it: women love stubble, and according to one study, the 10-day heavy stubble was most attractive to the ladies – even surpassing the clean-shaven and full-bearded look.

The Stath knows the deal.

That said, women aren’t going to just fall at your feet if you don’t keep your stubble looking its best. Like everything else when it comes to men’s grooming, you need the right tools. Specifically, you need a stubble trimmer.

We make it easy for you here by helping you find the best stubble trimmer available. Here’s a look at our three best trimmers for 2017 – led by the Conair Men’s Super I-Stubble Trimmer – and what makes them worthy of such high rating.

We’ll also take a brief look at what makes stubble trimmers different from other kinds of trimmers (and shavers and clippers). Let’s start by providing you with information that can help you make an intelligence decision when it comes to choosing a stubble trimmer.

Making Sure You Get The Best Stubble Trimmer

There are a few things to keep in mind before you shop for a quality stubble trimmer:

  • First, and foremost, choose a trimmer that’s designed for stubble.
  • It must have a low shortest setting – something below 1 mm for the 5 o’clock shadow and for fading.
  • It’s a real plus if it comes with a contour comb.
  • Cord or cordless? Cordless gives you the convenience of using it anywhere – like for doing a quick touch-up at the office before you leave for a date – but battery-operated units usually don’t have the power of a trimmer plugged into the wall. But, we repeat, there’s nothing wrong with portability.
  • Speaking of power, another thing to check when choosing a stubble trimmer is its battery runtime. Also be aware of how long it takes to charge the trimmer, and whether it has a quick-charge feature when you’re in a rush.

The 3 Best Stubble Trimmers of 2017 Review

Like we said earlier, stubble all of a sudden represented a ‘wow’ moment for women and men. For men, growing stubble can turn your social life into something a whole lot more fun. Actors and other celebrities are riding the stubble wave, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t, as well. Here are some tools to help you get that neat, yet-irresistible, stubble look. The 3 best stubble trimmers of 2017:

So, without further ado, the 3 best stubble trimmers of 2017:

1. Conair Men’s Super I-Stubble Trimmer

super i stubbleGetting your stubble to look its best takes more than just an ordinary trimmer and blade, and the Conair Men’s Super I-Stubble Trimmer is hardly ordinary. It has everything you need for a precision trim, not the least of which is its advanced technology electro-chemically formed blades that are extremely sharp and made to last.

While the blades are among the best in the business, there’s a lot else to like about the Super I-Stubble Trimmer. It has a wide range of lengths – from 0.4 mm to 5.0 mm  – with ultra-precise motorized adjustments for the ultimate in length control. There’s also a “length memory” feature that remembers the length setting you last used.

It also comes with an “ultra-flex” contouring shaving head that comfortably tracks the curves and crannies of your face while providing the clean shave that you should expect from a quality trimmer. Moreover, it’s versatile, as you can use it to trim around your mustache, sideburns, and neck.

The Conair Super-I Trimmer features a protective comb guide that provides a consistent trim, and that’s removable for easy cleaning. Because the trimmer is 100% waterproof, you can clean it by simply rinsing it under the tap (and you can use it in the shower if you prefer a wet trim). You can even use shaving gels, creams, soaps or foams to reduce irritation while providing you with the closest of shaves.

Long-lasting performance and power is aided by the Super I-Trimmer’s lithium ion battery that delivers reliable cordless use, even when the charge is running low. The battery provides 70 minutes of use, fully charged, or five minutes of use for a single stubble shave. You’ll be back to full battery capacity after 80 minutes of charging; a LED light on the trimmer’s body lets you know how much charge you have remaining.

The Super I-Trimmer is ergonomically-designed for comfortable use and comes in a long, sleek back body that’s easy to grip and maneuver. And here’s another plus: it comes with adjustable speed levels, which is unusual for trimmers in this price range.

Pros

  • Advanced blade technology
  • Ergonomic design
  • Protective comb delivers length consistency
  • Lithium-ion power

Cons

  • Some reviewers mention that battery life declines after several months

2. Conair For Men I-Stubble Trimmer

regular i stubbleAs the name suggests, the I-Stubble Trimmer comes from the same family tree as the Super I-Stubble trimmer. As it also suggests, Conair clearly knows what it’s doing when it comes to stubble trimmers.

There really aren’t a lot of differences between the two Conair trimmers, and you really can’t go wrong with either one. They share the same electro-chemically formed blades that are accurate, sharp, and durable, they both have a unique floating head for precise contouring, they both have an ergonomic design that feels good in your hand and is easy to maneuver. However, the I-Stubble is not waterproof, and thus, cannot be rinsed under the faucet.

The differences? Let’s take a quick look:

  • The I-Stubble has 15 settings instead of 24
  • The I-Stubble is both cord and cordless
  • The I-Stubble’s run time is 45 minutes instead of the 70 minutes you get with the Super I-Stubble. It also needs a four-hour charge to bring it back to full power; the Super-I Stubble needs an 80-minute charge.
  • The I-Stubble is not waterproof

Other than that, these trimmers are very much alike and very effective. One has a few more bells and whistles, but we think you’ll be well-served by both of them. Here’s another look at the I-Stubble trimmer:

Pros

  • Blades cut fast and clean
  • Very affordable
  • Easy-to-set adjustable lengths

Cons

  • Shorter battery life
  • Not waterproof

3. Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer Series 3500

philips beard and stubble trimmer 3500If you’re looking for a quality stubble trimmer that won’t break your budget, then you’ll want to take a serious look at the Philips Norelco 3500. Priced at around $35, the Norelco 3500 gets the job done on both beard and stubble and comes with a long-lasting lithium-ion battery that will give you more than enough run time.

While you get a relatively simple design for the price, don’t let the simplicity fool you when it comes to the Norelco 3500. It comes with self-sharpening titanium blades that are rounded to prevent scraping and tugging that can ruin a perfectly good trim. The blades will stay sharp without oil. It also comes with a comfortable grip that allows for easy maneuverability.

Another reason to like this trimmer is that it comes with 20 built-in length settings (in 0.5 mm increments) and a unique locking feature. What’s great is that you can get a fully customizable trimming experience without a bunch of separate attachments, while the locking system ensures that you get an even trim every time.

Its lithium-ion battery is another feature worth mentioning as it delivers up to 120 minutes of continuous run time after only an hour charge. Similar models require up to 10 hours of charging for an hour’s worth of use.

Note: While you can rinse the shaving head under the sink to get it clean, the unit itself is not waterproof. Take care if you’re planning on a wet cleaning. Check out this video about the Philips Norelco 3500:

Pros

  • Long-lasting battery power
  • Plenty of great features for the price
  • Compact size and easy to maneuver around the face
  • 20 length settings in 0.5 mm increments

Cons

  • It’s not as versatile as other trimmers

What is a Stubble Trimmer exactly?

Or, perhaps the real question is what’s different about a stubble trimmer compared to a beard trimmer, electric shaver, and hair clippers? Let us count the ways:

  • First, a stubble trimmer works best at lengths between 0.5 and 5 mm. It usually has a ‘stubble’ setting or has the word stubble in its name. A beard trimmer, meanwhile, works best at 5 – 15 mm while shavers are for the super-close (0 mm) shave. And clippers are, well, clippers. They’re not meant to do the close detail work that trimmers can handle.
  • The real difference is in how you want to look in public. A full beard looks great on many men but perhaps isn’t suited for others. If the stubble look suits you, then you need a trimmer that leaves just the right amount of hair when used correctly. Stubble trimmers are designed to do just that while a beard trimmer, as mentioned, works best at longer lengths.

How We Chose The Best Stubble Trimmers

Our method for choosing the best stubble trimmers is based on personal experience, trimmers that have the most positive reviews, and research, research, and more research. We don’t have the resources or massive amount of time it would take to review every stubble trimmer on the market. But we have put in the time and scrutiny to give you a list of trimmers we strongly believe you’ll love.


And there you have it. What are your experiences with stubble trimmers? We’d love to hear from you.
