Since I’m a proud member of the #beardgang, I completely understand why men with full manes would want to find the best beard trimmer for long beards.
Most men wear some level of facial hair nowadays, and as a result the overall number of beard trimmers on the market has exploded in recent years.
Unfortunately, most trimmers are designed with stubble or short beards in mind.
If you’ve got a full beard, you’ve probably noticed that it’s relatively easy to find a great stubble trimmer, but a lot harder to find a good cordless trimmer that can handle the intricacies of taming, trimming and shaping longer beards.
And that’s where this post comes in.
To help your beard look its best, in this post I’ve rounded up more than a dozen of the best beard trimmers for long beards.
Because if there’s one thing I love doing, it’s having my bearded brothers’ backs.
(And if there are two things I love doing, they’re having my bearded brothers’ backs, and awkwardly over-using alliteration… 😏 )

As part of the Philips Norelco multigroom series, the QT4018/49 can technically be used to trim all manner of body hair.
But like the Panasonic model above, it’s a particularly great beard trimmer thanks to the built-in settings and adjustable zoom wheel that make it easy to shave to multiple beard lengths.
Plus, in addition to a lithium battery that can last for up to 120 minutes, it’s easy to maintain:
The self-sharpening blades don’t require any blade oil. Just give it a quick pass with the included cleaning brush, and you’re good to go.
Best beard trimmer I’ve ever owned. I noticed a huge difference with this trimmer. Lighter weight, MUCH quieter and smaller making it is much easier to maneuver and use.
I have a full beard well down onto my neck, and I couldn’t believe how much faster my trim was. I really love this thing.

One of the best electric beard trimmers for any length of facial hair, this Wahl beard trimmer is smaller than the Philips and Panasonic models listed above, but packs more than enough power.
As its name suggests, the rechargeable battery uses lithium ion technology and can last for up to six hours on a single charge.
It comes with 12 comb attachments that are easy to affix to the main precision blades and offer plenty of variance for beards of any length.
As an added bonus, it’s also comes with a detachable nose hair trimmer and a separate detail trimmer, meaning this one tool can handle pretty much all of your at-home grooming needs.
This device is simply beautiful in every way.
It feels great in the hand (form/weight/comfort/vibration), the blades are sharp, the accessories are easy to attach and detach.

With sharp titanium blades and a sturdy polycarbonate housing, Remington bills the MB4850 as “virtually indestructible.”
So it’s probably the best option for anyone who’s had to replace their beard trimming device in the past after one too many drops.
(Guilty as charged…)
In addition to being sturdy, the MB4850 also has a strong motor that can mow through coarse, thick hair and a zoom wheel that lets you easily switch between different length settings.
Cuts through my tough beard like butter… very good razor…
Best i’ve had in an electric beard trimmer.

It’s no surprise to see multiple entries from the Philips series popping on a list of the best beard trimmer:
Philips Norelco tends to dominate the world of high quality trimmers.
The 7750 is smaller than the series 3500 model listed above, and occupies a lower price range.
Instead of a zoom wheel with built-in settings, it comes with multiple guards that give you various different options for lengths, along with multiple detailing blades and a foil shaver to use on your neck and other areas that require a close shave.
To say my mind is blown would be an understatement! This is the best shaver/trimmer I’ve ever had. It does everything you could ever need/want.
I was a little intimidated at first cuz there’s so many pieces, you would think this is specifically meant for experts and barbers.
Once you devote a few minutes to testing it all out you get the hang of it real quick and are in heaven! Lol.

Braun’s BT7240 model is a high quality beard trimmer that offers a precise cut for both long hair and shorter beards.
Smaller and more efficient than other Braun trimmers, this one sports an ergonomic design that makes it easy to maneuver for precision trimming, a whopping 39 different length settings, and a nose trimmer to boot.
As an added bonus, it also comes with a Gillette ProGlide Razor, which those with sensitive skin might prefer when it comes time to trim your neck.
(Personally I’ve never had a problem using an electric razors, but some readers tell me they prefer to use a manual razor and a good shaving cream to avoid skin irritation.)
I’m an aging professional and have never had a beard….but grew a big unibomber beard during the Covid lockdown.
This trimmer is great. Has a dial that adjusts the guard in 1/2 MM increments (0-39) so you can find the perfect length for you. The massive amount of adjustments makes it easy to blend and taper/etc.

The good news about this set from Limural is that it’s actually a 2-for-1 combo:
It includes not one but two new trimmers – a larger unit that can tackle as much hair as you can throw at it, and a smaller electric razor that can handle the finer details.
Both units sport sharp blades and the set comes with nine interchangeable guards that can be used on either device.
As advertised. Long lasting battery and sharp clippers.
It is very convenient to have the second smaller pair.

This is another set that offers two clippers for the price of one.
This pair from Novah includes a larger electric trimmer that can handle hair and longer beards, and a good beard trimmer that’s smaller and better suited for edging and other details.
Both models are built with ease of use in mind and feature a unique cross etch handle that’s easy to grip and a display window that conveys speed and power settings.
I have been using the Novah hair and beard trimmer for a month, and have been very happy with the results… The length of battery life is also impressive.
Most importantly, the clippers provide a smooth and easy trim, and I like the width of the cutting blades.

Bevel’s tool-free beard trimmer foregoes attachments entirely, instead using a simple dial to adjust the length of the trimmer blades.
Designed for easy cleaning, it can simply be wiped with a damp cloth, or cleaned out using a small trimmer brush.
Yoooo this trimmers are 🔥🔥🔥🔥 my beard looks like I went to a barber. They like up sooooo nice and it’s black owned so it’s definitely a big yes for me.
They look so sleek. You can raise the blade up without taking out any screws. My beard and lining stay fresh now and I’m happy.

xtava’s Pro hair and beard trimmer features an adjustable switch that makes it easy to change between the four built-in settings, and two attachment combs can provide additional length options.
The quick charge battery can last up to 4.5 hours and the LED display lets you know exactly how much juice you have left.
Until I got this, I was paying a barber to trim my beard. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive at first. But after using it with the short guide, it was so easy…
It won’t take but a few trims and it will pay for itself. If you are looking for a tool to trim your beard, this is the one. You can’t beat the price.

Hatteker’s all-in-one beard trimmer has received rave reviews on Amazon, and it’s not hard to see why.
A built-in dial allows you to easily adjust the length of the titanium blades on the device itself, and it comes with eight guards that let you shave to damn near any length.
Plus, one of those eight has its own adjustable dial, letting you easily switch between lengths without needing to shuffle between guard combs.
Hands down, the best hair and beard trimmer I’ve ever used– you won’t find a better value.
The Hatteker is the perfect all in one tool for beard and hair… The 3-8 millimeter dial is perfect for growing out a beard, keeping it neat and even, and even goes to half mm settings.

Eradream’s beard trimmer comes with four detachable blades and seven varieties of comb and stubble guard, so it’s the perfect beard trimmer for guys who want one tool that can do it all.
The only catch with this one is that the battery isn’t quite as impressive as some of the others:
It comes with a removeable USB power cord to charge its 1500 mAh lithium battery, which gets up to 180 minutes of run time after two hours charging.
Still, 180 minutes is nothing to sneeze at, and the wide variety of combs and blades make this a good, versatile option.
This is a very nice buzzer – the design of the body is sleek, sturdy and comfortable to hold, and it comes with a number of different heads, from very wide to very thin.
I very much like the LED display too which shows the amount of battery left and the current RPM setting (you can change the speed that the blades move).

Brightup’s beard trimmer is an affordable option for those who don’t want to shell out big bucks for something a little more powerful.
It’s got three detachable trimmer blades and five guards, along with a nose and ear trimmer, a foil attachment and an adjustable comb that can be used to trim body hair.
My husband prefers the ‘viking’ look, and this trimmer has done it all – shaving smooth on the sides, combing/straightening the cut of his beard, trimming the excess growth before shaving smooth.
We’ve used it several times and have yet to have to charge it. It gives you the battery life, has two different speeds, and the parts are relatively easy to switch out.

DSP’s beard and hair trimmer is probably slightly better suited for men with shorter beards, but it’s got enough versatility to get the job done on full, longer beards as well.
It comes with four different guards that let you trim to various lengths, along with all the usual attachments for detailing and finer points.
Plus, it comes with a handy little storage box that keeps all the attachments neat and tidy, so you don’t have to go hunting through your cupboard to find the right guard length.
My husband has been using this for months and this has really stood the test of time! Its extremely well made and long lasting.
I love the tray it comes with to keep all the attachments organized in one place vs thrown about in the drawer. Very sleek and modern look.

Surker’s beard trimming set is pretty comparable to DSP’s in terms of what’s included.
(Which is to say, it’s a little more suited to short beards and stubble.)
But it’s one of the most affordable beard trimmers on the market, and has more than 2,200 five-star reviews on Amazon, which easily earns it a spot on this list.
I used this trimmer for the first time, and I am quite impressed by its performance. It trims the beard very well. It has got a great charging speed.
It is very handy and light weight unlike my previous trimmer.

The final Philips model to make the cut, the Series 5000 doesn’t have quite as many features as some of its cousins—and for some guys, that’s a plus.
With three guards of varying lengths and a sleek, no-nonsense design, the Series 5000 is the right beard trimmer for those who value straightforward simplicity.
Plus, the brand name is an important factor here. Philips Norelco is one of the most trusted names in the industry, so even though this one doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, you can expect it to give you a good shave for a damn long time.
I started my first beard this Spring, like lots of guys. I decided I liked it, but it needed some serious work after 6 months.
The three guards are just what I need… Nothing finicky, easy to get a nice shaped beard without much work. I trim maybe once every two weeks and that’s good enough.

Braun’s MGK3220 model falls somewhere in between the more robust and feature-rich trimmers, like our top pick and the others near the top of this list, and the simplicity of the Philips Series 5000 mentioned above.
It comes with four guards that provide various shave lengths, along with a nose and ear trimmer to keep your appendages neat and tidy.
But the best thing about it is probably the price tag:
This is one of the most affordable trimmers on this list, and comes from a respected brand.
So if you treat it right and maintain it well, there’s good reason to believe it will hold up pretty decently over the long run.
Great little clippers. Nice and easy!! Love the beard setting, easy to pick a nice length.
Was easy to use on my boyfriends thick beard.
