This beard trimmer with vacuum is known for its longevity and effectiveness. It stands out among other Remington hair trimmers and testimonies abound about it. It comes in two varieties- with cord and the cordless type.
It comes in a bag containing 18 kits (different length combs, a brush for cleaning the combs, a blade guard, oil for clipper etc.) to improve your shaving experience.
Its vacuum action is fantastic as well as its mode of operation. The vacuum bag or pouch is bigger than what you’ll see on other vacuum trimmers. This reduces the number of time you’ll emptying the chamber. Actually, this pouch is large enough and can collect a lot of hair if not all of the hair during a trimming session.
Talking about its MO, it is effective. It has precision-ground blades which work through hair fast and a high-speed fan that blows cut hair into its pouch. This way cleaning up is easier for you. It also possesses precision ground blades that cut through your hair cleanly, swiftly and closely. Everybody seems to agree that the Remington 2000A gets the job done 100%.
About the batteries, they’re durable and strong. They’re actually made to last for about 7 to 10 years. And you don’t have to always be shackled with the cord. The cordless version takes care of that, and you can use it and be charging it at the same time. When fully charged, it will work for roughly an hour.
Because of its fantastic bag of accessories,
Remington HKVAC2000A Vacuum Haircut Kit can also be used to trim the beard, although it’s not 100% effective. Can’t blame Remington for that though, the trimmer wasn’t primarily designed to shave beards.
The Remington 2000A doesn’t make loud noises when in use. Its entire operation is really quiet. You’ll only hear a soft whir when it turns on and a soft faint clicking sound as it cuts the hair.
People have used this shaver for more than 5 years before needing to change it. You can consider buying it a long term hair investment.

Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 7300 comes with a detachable cord and a rechargeable battery. There’s also a LED interface that displays the battery’s status, so you’ll know when it’s due for charging. The battery itself is strong and durable. It will last for an hour of shaving after it has been charged up to 100%. This means you can use it for four different shaves before needing to charge it.
One standout feature of this baby is that it works well on both dry and wet hair, even with gel. This means you can use it in the shower. It is also good for sideburn or beard trimming and comes with an anti-friction action which reduces the chances of it bruising your skin. That is probably why it works so well on sensitive skins.
It comes with a cleaning station/ charging dock. So it is easy to clean but people complained that it loses its efficiency too soon. It’s vacuuming action is alright but could be better.

Remington VPG6530 Lithium Power Series 4 In 1 Vacuum Trimmer is a very versatile beard trimmer with vacuum with a strong motor and plenty of attachments. It won the Red Dot Product Design competition in 2014.
The first noticeable thing is its cord, which is really long, so you can use it conveniently while it is still plugged in.
If you need to use it farther away from the socket, you can disconnect the cord and use it that way. It comes with a rechargeable battery that will work for a full hour on a full charge. When you’re charging it, the LED indicator shows if it’s charging or not.
The kit looks good. It comes with 9 adjustable and 4 fixed length combs so you can easily trim your beard or stubble easily. There’s also a storage pouch that you can easily use to store the trimmer and attachments whenever you go out or when you travel.
About its vacuum system, it’s not bad. About 95 % of hair is sucked into the vacuum trimmer, leaving some on the floor. This means you’ll have to do a little clean up after shaving. Furthermore, the hair collecting chamber isn’t that big and you might have to empty it on numerous occasions, especially when you’re cutting fully grown beards or hairs on the head.
One good thing it though, is that the hair chamber can be detached easily to empty hair that has been cut. It can also be easily rinsed under a faucet.
It’s also a little bit big and handling it can be clumsy. You can’t use the straight edge to trim a straight line on your mustache or a neckline; a smaller trimmer is needed for that.
Cutting length: 0.5mm-10mm(Total 20 settings)
Washable: Washable attachments
Usage/Charging Time: 80min
What we like:Really strong battery,Washable accessories
What we don’t like: It is a bit expensive

The vacuum works great. It captures about 90% of hair that has been cut but it isn’t 100% effective. Some hair will fall out while cutting so you’ll need to wash up a little bit afterward.
This trimmer has a really flexible cutting length.

It is known to give a good, close cut. This is probably because of its lift and trimming technology, which effectively lifts and guides hairs for a more efficient cut.
The battery on this device is the strongest of the four. When fully charged, it lasts for 80 minutes (1 hour 20 minutes). What’s more? You only need to plug it in for 60 minutes for the battery to be fully charged. There’s also an indicator which shows the battery’s charge levels.
Everybody needs to shave or trim their hair from time to time. The beard trimmer with vacuum you settle on will determine how comfortable or painful your shaving experience will be.
