The Philips Norelco T980 is a vacuum trimmer designed to not only make your beard look great, but to also vacuum your trimmed beard hairs as the trimming occurs. Philips paid special attention to the contour following comb when building this trimmer. Built with “SteelWave” self-sharpening blades, this trimmer not only provides a great trim, but also takes away the hassle of continually having to replace and clean your blades.

Our Philips Norelco T980 review also needs to mention that this quick charging vacuum trimmer has a run time of 50 minutes if using the cordless setting. It’s blades do not need to be oiled (making it a more user-friendly trimmer), and it comes with a travel pouch as well as a cleaning brush to take on the road.
