Panasonic will get its hands on anything electronic – even beard trimmers. Certainly, the company has its own history in manufacturing quality electronic hair clippers. The same quality standard has carried over into the Panasonic ER224S.
The Panasonic ER224S definitely has all the essentials of a beard trimmer, and even more. It’s portable, it trims without nicking the skin, and it is wireless. Yes, Folks, It’s Wireless.
The Panasonic ER224S is becoming immensely popular due to its portability and design. It doesn’t just function well, but also looks outstanding. Its sleek design, together with its black-on-silver body, makes it an ornament and not an eyesore in your bathroom. The Panasonic ER224S is a great asset to a bearded guy’s bathroom. It’s water-resistant, and it will work for you as long as you don’t plan on trimming your beard underwater. It can resist a decent amount of moisture, and that comes in handy since most guys realize the need to trim during or after a bath.
The Panasonic ER224S is also simple to use. With a turn of the dial, you can select from 14 different lengths to cut your beard. That means that you don’t need 20 different attachments that you can lose any time. As an added safety feature, the dial locks in place once you have switched the trimmer on, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally shortening your beard by pressing the trimmer too hard on your chin. The blades on the ER224S are expertly made with stainless steel and are built to last a long time. The blades are sharp and rarely need to be replaced. The spring-loaded razor mechanism is quiet and it doesn’t vibrate much when in use.
Also, the Panasonic ER224S has outstanding battery life. You have up to ten trims in one single charge. It comes with a dock that lets the trimmer stand upright while charging.
In a Nutshell, What Makes the ER224S Great Is:
- Wireless operation
- Water-resistant design
- Built-in length selector
- Durable construction
- Reasonable price
While the ER224S might sound like the perfect beard trimmer, there are a couple of things that would have made it a little better.
- Difficult access to fine trimmer
- Specific angles of trimming
- Takes eight hours to charge
- Non – replaceable guide
It would have been really great if the length guide were easy to remove. To remove the length guide, you would have to move the trimmer to its longest length, and then pop the guide off. Removing the guide doesn’t feel safe at all. You may get the feeling that you may break the guide, and that’s a real downside since there are no current replacement parts for the guide as of this writing.
Also, the ER224S only works at specific angles. When the trimmer is at an angle where the dials face upwards and the top slope is in contact with the surface, you have to shave downwards or do it the other way around. It’s the only way the trimmer would work. It’s confusing, as this is not indicated in the ER224S’ user guide. It may have been added as a safety feature, but it would have really helped if it was shown somewhere about using the trimmer in the right angles.
Overall, the Panasonic ER224S is a solid piece of hair-cutting equipment. It trims nicely, it’s portable, and it’s water-resistant. There may be a learning curve at first, but once you get the hang of it, it would definitely be worth the price you pay for it.
