It doesn’t take a genius to understand why a lot of guys want to find the very best trimmer for balls:
Ladies like ’em trimmed.
As journalist Alissa Scully wrote for YourTango a few years back:
“If your balls look like a Pomeranian, we’re going to… be grossed out by licking [them].”
And Alissa’s not alone.
In a Quora thread that posed the question to women, the majority of female users agreed that the closeness of shave matters:
They prefer a man whose pubes are trimmed, rather than au naturel, or shaved as bare as a baby’s bottom.
But while trimming your balls may be socially advantageous, it’s also a little dangerous.
The skin in your nether regions isn’t exactly the smoothest, and the hair down there tends to be curly and coarse, all of which makes your balls trickier (and potentially more perilous) to shave.
And that’s where ball trimmers come in.
As an electric trimmer purpose-built for your pubic area, a good ball trimmer provides a smooth shave that keeps your sack looking and feeling fresh, while reducing the risk of nicks, cuts and unwanted skin irritation.
To help your guys look well groomed, in this post I’ve rounded up some of the best trimmers for mens balls.

The (Absolute) Best Trimmers for Your Balls
Overall Best Trimmer for Balls ↓
The Meridian Trimmer
- 5 Stars
- 158 Reviews
- Ergonomic design
- Comes with two interchangeable guards
Meridian isn’t nearly as well known as some of the other popular ball trimmer brands on this list, but they’re owned by popular men’s skincare company Lumin.
And as someone who appreciates the quality and effectiveness of Lumin’s skincare products, I was not at all surprised to find that they also make the best ball trimmer.
Custom-made for trimming your pubic hair, it’s packed full of features that make it safe and effective enough for trimming your most sensitive areas:
It’s ergonomically designed, allowing you to be as precise as possible, and completely waterproof, so you can use it in the shower, when your hair is softest and easiest to trim.
In addition, it uses ceramic blades to reduce instances of tugging and scratching, comes with two interchangeable guards that allow you to control the closeness of the shave, and uses a low vibration mode to help ensure safety and comfort.
And the best part is that it won’t break the bank: in addition to being the single best trimmer for balls, it’s also one of the most affordable on this list.
“I’ve been shaving my pubes for over 15 years. This is the first trimmer that didn’t cause any nicks or cuts on my nuts. I highly recommend Meridian clippers for any guy who likes a clean workspace.”
– Jerry A.

Best Full Body Hair Trimmer ↓
Philips Norelco BG7030
- 4.6 Stars on Amazon
- 12,438 Ratings
- Dual sided handle
- Waterproof trimmer
The first model from the Philips Norelco bodygroom series has a unique design that basically makes it two trimmers in one:
One end sports a 4-directional pivoting head that provides a close shave on sensitive areas.
But when you flip it over, the other end has an adjustable trimmer with self-sharpening stainless steel blades, which comes with a guard that offers five different lengths.
In addition to the double feature, the BG7030/49 is both waterproof and powerful:
The lithium-ion battery only takes one hour to reach a full charge, and lasts for up to 80 minutes of use.
(And if it takes you more than 80 minutes to shave your balls, you’re definitely doing something wrong…)
If you guys want a personal body trimmer this is the best! Worth the cost – trims body hair and personal groin area.
You have NO cuts or burns using this trimmer. I highly recommend and keep you body hair under control and neat!”
– James W.
The Balls.co Trimmer
- 5 Stars
- 938 Ratings
- “Sacksafe” adjustable guards
- Ceramic blades
- Built-in light
The UK’s answer to brands like Meridian and Manscaped, Balls.co is another brand founded entirely on providing your most sensitive areas with a smooth shave.
To that end, its flagship trimmer comes with an adjustable guard that’s custom designed to help protect against painful nicks and cuts, and uses ceramic blades in lieu of (potentially perilous) stainless steel.
It’s also got a built-in flashlight, which comes in particularly handy in poorly lit bathrooms, where it can be tough to see what you’re doing down there.

I’d been wanting to buy a razor for down there for a while and saw the TikToks and thought **** it why not, and honestly it has given me one of, if not the best shave I’ve ever had.
It was quick and smooth and my favorite part is how quiet the machine actually is. 10/10 good job boys.
– Kendall S.
The Manscaped Lawnmower
- 4.4 Stars on Amazon
- 1,212 Ratings
- LED Spotlight
A close runner up for the title of “Overall Best Trimmer for Balls,” the famous Manscaped Lawn Mower is one of the best pubic hair trimmers on the market.
(And it might just be the overall best body groomer.)
Billed as “the ‘crown jewel’ to take care of your family jewels,” the Manscaped brand became kind of a big deal after its founders appeared on Shark Tank.
And their latest flagship trimmer, the Lawn Mower 4.0, includes a host of features that make it easier to use:
Wireless charging, waterproofing, an LED spotlight that illuminates the area and a travel lock so it won’t accidentally turn on – and freak out TSA – in your luggage.
Awesome packaging and top notch machine. Worked amazingly on the goods and has incredible battery life.
Blows my old Phillips out of the water and is much more gentle. Very glad I went this route and look forward to many more SAFE trims.

All Purpose Gillette Styler
- 4.6 Stars on Amazon
- 17,569 Ratings
- Interchangeable blades
- 3 comb/guard attachments
Though it’s best known as a beard trimmer, Gillette’s All Purpose model can be used on any body parts, and actually makes a lot of sense as a ball trimmer.
It’s smaller than a lot of the other models on this list, allowing you to get into those hard to reach areas, and comes with two different attachments for the head:
The first is a Gillette Fusion ProGlide blade that serves as a precision trimmer and will give you a super soft shave.
And the second is a more traditional electric clipper with three guards that will help you avoid painful pulling when trimming down long hair.
Unfortunately I can’t post a picture of my squeaky clean balls on Amazon. Don’t be afraid, quality and affordable price makes this a no-doubt choice.
Philips Norelco Bodygroomer BG2040
- 4.2 Stars on Amazon
- 5,824 Ratings
- Dual sided handle
- 3D pivoting head
Another entry in Philips’ Bodygroom series, the BG2040 is like a suped up version of the BG7030 listed above.
It has all the same features, plus a few extra perks, like a 3D pivoting head and skin-protecting shaver made from hypo-allergenic materials.
(Both of which make this a better option for guys with sensitive skin.)
But the important thing to note about the BG2040 is that it’s more expensive than most of my other top picks.
It might actually be the single best shaver on the market, but the price point is probably higher than a lot of guys are willing to pay for a good trimmer.
(Although my personal preference is to skimp on other grooming products, and splurge on the one that I intend to spend a long time rubbing against my most private area …)
Your genitals will thank you. I discovered this beauty of a device in my last year of college and I haven’t looked back over the past 6 years.
Are you looking for the final solution to all you pubic hair manscaping needs? Look no further.
– DJ Ileum
Cleancut ES412 Personal Shaver
- 4 Stars on Amazon
- 2,062 Ratings
- Foil head
- Stainless steel blades
The ES412 bills itself as one of the first personal/pubic shavers on the market.
As a slotted foil shaver, it’s designed to provide a comfortable dry shave that keeps the number of nicks and cuts on your private parts to a (terrible pun alert) bare minimum (you were warned).
In addition to trimming back longer hairs, the foil shaver has sharp blades that can also help you avoid getting an ingrown hair.
This one isn’t waterproof, so it’s not the best choice for those who prefer wet shaving in the shower.
But the good news is that you can still get a really clean shave with dry use.
I’ve spent 5x / 10x as much money for much nicer / high quality shavers that just don’t do the job that this little guy does on my pubic region.
This thing just works tremendously well… I only ever use it on my pubic region- it’s the only thing that’s ever fully worked down there tho. highly recommended!
Philips Norelco OneBlade
- 4.6 Stars on Amazon
- 46,686 Ratings
- Dual protection system for efficiency and comfort
One of the most popular and best-reviewed models on Amazon, the Oneblade is arguably the best balls trimmer that can also be used on the entire body.
It comes with two blades, one for the face and one for the rest of your body, can be used either dry or wet, with shaving cream or without.
Plus, it offers a generous amount of battery life with 60 minutes of continuous run time.
I’ve got a cabinet full of these things. Previous to getting the OneBlade my fav was the Trym2.
This works better for me. F.Y. I. – I made a few passes over the boys harm free. Now it looks like Bruce Willis and Andre Agassi hanging upside down.
Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor
- 4.5 Stars on Amazon
- 11,900 Ratings
- Five 30° Nanotech blades
The Arc5 is a foil shaver that uses five thin arc foil blades designed to follow the contours of your face while trimming facial hair.
And anything that can closely follow the contours of your face can easily maneuver around the contours of your package.
In addition to smooth maneuverability, the Arc5 has a powerful motor that provides 14,000 cuts per minute and can be used for both wet and dry shaving.
This razor alleviated the razor burn on my neck, but that isn’t the reason for most people to buy it.
The reason to buy it is because it’s the best electric razor that money can buy.
Philips Norelco Multigroom 5100 Grooming Kit
- 4.4 Stars on Amazon
- 3,502 Ratings
- Comes with four interchangeable heads and three combs/guards
As its name implies, the Multigroom 1500 is an all-purpose body trimmer that can be used on the entire body.
It comes with four different heads that each provide a different shaving experience, and three variations of a plastic guard (also called a trimming comb) that let you specify the exact trim length.
If you only want to own one trimmer and don’t have any qualms about using the same unit for your face and chest hair as you do for your… well, unit, then this might be the best electric shaver for you.
I have SCOURED the internet looking for a trimmer like this, but nothing has matched the versatility this offers.
Best Wahl Ball Clippers ↓
Wahl Stainless Steel Lithium Ion 2.0+
- 4.4 Stars on Amazon
- 2,686 Ratings
- Comes with four heads and 12 guards
Wahl’s lithium ion trimmer is designed for beards, but works equally well for balls.
(I mentioned that it’s an excellent choice for beard trimming in my post about how to look more handsome. But since that post was focused more on the face than the phallus, I left out the part about the ball trimming…)
It comes with four interchangeable heads and a whopping 12 guards, allowing you to choose a wide variety of different hair lengths.
Plus, it has an almost insanely long battery life: one charge will last for six hours, even if you go months without plugging it in.
The build quality is very solid. This has a great weight to it and you can just feel that it is well made…
The motor in this thing is strong and I have not experienced any nips. The precision blades work excellent for when you need to edge up or trim down hair.
– Matt K.
Philips Norelco OneBlade QP6520
- 4.7 Stars on Amazon
- 342 Ratings
- Comes with multiple guards and 14-setting dial
The OneBlade QP6520 is pricier than the standard OneBlade, but you get quite a bit of extra bang for those extra bucks.
It’s also known as the Pro Kit, because it takes what’s great about the OneBlade model listed above and adds on a number of extra features.
Chief among them is an adjustable guard with a dial that allows you to select from 14 different length settings (ranging from 0.4 to 10mm), and an LED display that tells you exactly how much juice is left in the battery.
Closest electric shave ever, smooth, great shave. Not as close as 5 blade razor (which I can’t use) BUT as good as a 2 or 3 blade razor and way better for your skin, so quick, so easy with or without shaving cream.
Battery last for 20 shaves, great handle and shaves both directions. I love it so far.
Remington PG525 Head to Toe Body Groomer
- 4.3 Stars on Walmart
- 90 Ratings
- Comes with nine different attachments and accessories
Remington’s PG525 can do everything from a professional haircut to a quick trim for your boys.
It has eight length settings and comes with a wide array of blades and guards that make it one of the more versatile trimmers on this list, though not ball-specific like some of the others.
For neat freaks who like to keep things organized (guilty), the charging stand doubles as a tray that can keep all of the attachments and accessories in one place.
Hubby tried this groomer and really liked it. The groomer is very versatile in the many things it can do.
Lightweight and easy to use with the various attachments. Does a great job of body grooming and the charge lasts for up 60 minutes.
INVJOY Electric Groin & Body Hair Shaver
- 4.5 Stars
- 493 Ratings
- Ceramic blades
INVJOY’s pubic hair trimmer uses ceramic blades that provide a close cut, so this might be the right tool for anyone who’s (understandably) nervous about taking stainless steel blades to their boys.
It’s also got a rechargeable battery that provides up to 60 minutes of trimming time, and it’s waterproof, so you can use it in the shower.
Purchased this for my husband and he loved it. The trimmer literally glids across his skin without any cuts and that’s the magic of this incredible trimmer.
This works better then any other trimmer my husband has used expensive and non expensive.
Kibiy Electric Groin Hair Trimmer
- 4.1 Stars
- 61 Ratings
- Built-in LED light
- Removable blade head
Kibiy’s pubic hair and body trimmer doesn’t have quite as many reviews as some of the other products on this list, but somes with a lot of features worth considering.
In addition to ceramic blades and a battery that lasts for 90 minutes, it comes with a built-in LED light that allows you to see the area you’re trimming, which is especially beneficial when you’re focusing on the areas where the sun don’t shine.
Great trimmer for the entire body. It comes in a very nice box and with the needed accessories, including the lubricating oil.
I like the light, it is very useful for trimming and for seeing the trimmed area.
MANGROOMER Lithium Max Plus
- 4.1 Stars
- 3,300 Ratings
- Stainless steel blades
Mangroomer’s ball and body groomer basically provides you with two different trimming devices in one:
One end has a foil trimmer that you can use on your balls to get a closer shave, while the other side has a set of clippers with eight different trim lengths, which you can use to trim body hair that doesn’t need to be completely removed.
In addition, it’s got a lithium battery that lasts up to five times longer than standard batteries, and can be used either wet or dry, including in the shower.
I purchased this mainly for trimming up my stuff down below and it does an amazing job at that and more.
I use one hand to make the skin kind of tight, then let the shaver do its work and shave away. pro tip is go slow and take your time, plus maybe do it when your boys are cold so they are easy to shave. 😉
OLOV Electric Groin* Hair Trimmer
This means it’s an electric trimmer for groin hair, not a trimmer for electric groins. (At least, I think…)
- 4.7 Stars
- 3,204 Ratings
- Skin-safe ceramic blades
- 2 adjustable trimming guards for different lengths
This groin hair trimmer from OLOV is designed for both men and women, so it sometimes gets overlooked by guys looking for a ball-specific shaver.
But that’s a shame, since this little bad boy has just about everything you need to get the job done safely, including ceramic blades, waterproof functionality and two different guards you can use to adjust the length.
One of the best men’s trimmers out there. Much more affordable than some out there but gets the job done.
FADEUM Ball Trimmer
- 4.9 Stars
- 88 Ratings
- Combo pack includes electric trimmer and safety razors
Fadeum offers two separate tools, each designed to tackle a different task.
You can use the electric trimmer to mow through thick, coarse pubes, bringing them down to a shorter, more manageable length.
But for those who prefer to go totally bare, Fadeum also includes a safety razor that will leave your balls completely smoothe.
What I love about this Fadeum bundle set it truly comes with everything!
The trimmer itself is perfectly designed to shave large areas like your chest, but also small enough to maneuver around the groin region.
MANSPOT Groin Hair Trimmer
- 4.4 Stars
- 2,495 Ratings
- 4 Adjustable guide combs
This unit from Manspot comes with a 6000 RPM razor that’s powerful enough to mow through coarse, thick pubic hair, but has ceramic blades that help reduce the chances of nicks and cuts.
In addition, it comes with four guide combs that range in length from 1.5 to 12 mm, so you can use it for manscaping other parts of your body as well.
This is a great product, soft on skin with extraordinary battery life. I lost my charger and requested a new one. They sent me a new unit with charger. Thank you!
The Ballber Groin Trimmer
- 4.3 Stars
- 2,297 Ratings groo
- Double-sided blade
- Pivoting head
This unit from Happy Nuts – an entire brand built around grooming your groin – has a dual-sided blade and 30-degree pivoting head, which helps you trim even the hardest-to-reach areas.
Its lithium ion battery lasts for up to 150 minutes on a full charge, and at 7000 RPM it offers a pretty powerful shave.
It is a technological marvel, and a joyous day for my private area. I haven’t felt myself so smooth down there since forever.
It does not tug on your skin, even in the most wrinkly places (men, you know).
Gillette Heated Razor for Men
- 4.6 Stars
- 3,225 Ratings
- Heats up in less than a second
- Provides six shaves on a single charge
This heated unit from Gillette is designed to shave your face, but can also provide a silky smoothe shave for your balls.
Heating the skin helps loosen hair follicles, making them easier to remove without nicks and cuts, which is why barbers have been offering a hot shave for decades.
But since you’re not likely to find a barber whose willing to shave your nuts (and should be extremely wary of any who offer), this is the next best thing.
Really nice product. The heat dissipated feels very nice on your face. It actually works pretty well.
Because of the heat it gives out you get really nice close and comfortable shave without any nicks.
