It is a vacuum trimmer and can still get pretty short for a stubble look with the length attachment removed. But main thing is much smaller clean up thanks to the vacuum. - BJDonnellan
I use this one too. I hate shaving but really can’t grow a full coverage beard. I bought this more to shave than trim as I tend to get ingrown hairs with razor shaving which suck. If I have an important function or meeting, I will go the razor route, but for monthly “shaving” I use this without any of the guards. The door catch on mine hasn’t busted and the vacuum does a good job unless I let it fill up. - FusilliJerry
Very close behind was the less expensive Philips Norelco Multigroom Beard Trimmer, which is actually discounted at the time of this writing.

- Lithium-Ion Battery
- Works on battery or plugged in

If you’d prefer the power of a wired model, the Wahl Peanut took third place.
Came here to post this, just want to add that the power of this little thing is unbelievable. I’ve gone through a number of beard trimmers in the past five years and usually my experience involves running the trimmer over my face numerous times only to be dissatisfied to find a number of long hairs still remaining. With the Peanut I’ve always gotten a great trim on the first pass. The downside is that all that power comes from the fact that the Peanut isn’t battery powered, but has to be plugged in. This hasn’t been a big deal for me, but your mileage may vary. Also, while it’s got a decent selection of comb guards it doesn’t have near the level of customizability of a lot of other beard trimmers out there. - VorpalMonkey
