Panasonic ER GB80 S Trimmer Review.
The one thing that plays a decisive role between an average trim and a perfect trim is the tool used. With the Panasonic ER GB80 S, there is little room for doubt about the quality of experience. Crafted with excellent ergonomics and precision blades, this is the reason why this beard trimmer is one of the most sought after by buyers for both self-use and professional use in salons. With the precision technology that is employed in the Panasonic, you can ensure you are well groomed, no matter how your past appearance was.
State of the art ergonomics.
A trimmer can only be as good as it can be handled, and when it comes to the ergonomics of the Panasonic ER GB80 S, there is very little left for questioning. With a smooth design and user-friendly interfaces for charge indication and trimming length setting, the trimmer comes fully equipped for all kinds of uses and applications from beard grooming to body hair trimming. The trimmer has a masculine design and a rubberized grip. So you don’t have to fret about your trimmer slipping and falling out of hand, even in wet conditions.
39 sets of trimming length.
One of the biggest plus points of the Panasonic ER GB80 S is the fact that the trimming length is highly flexible. The trimmer features adjustable settings up to 39 variations starting from 1mm to 20mm in variations of 0.5mm. The control spinner is located right in the middle of the trimmer body to enable easy access and setting, making the experience a smooth and pleasant one.
The trimmer also comes with a three comb set to ensure that body hair trimming is effortless.
- The type A comb is a 1mm to 10mm comb which can be used for grooming mustaches and beards with a sharp and closer, cleaner look.
- The type B comb which is a 10mm to 20mm comb can be used to groom longer beards and body hair.
- The 1.5mm attachment is designed for grooming body hair in tricky places like the underarms and even the chest and gives a smooth experience.
45° specially crafted anti-allergen blades.
The Panasonic ER GB80 S is equipped with specialized anti- allergen stainless steel blades that make the trimmer ideal for people with sensitive skin. While the trimmer houses anti-allergen blades in its base comb and also in the attachments, the blades themselves have been designed at 45° angles to ensure that the trimming experience is smooth. The slanted blades give an added advantage to the chin and other places like the underarms while trimming because of this design.
Another major plus point of the Panasonic ER GB80 S is the fact that the model is highly portable. It consists of an inbuilt Ni-MH battery that can give the trimmer a good run for around 50 minutes. A major feature is the fact that the battery gets fully charged within an hour, and this makes the trimmer a fitting companion while traveling. Besides this, the trimmer also works with AC power and can be used when it is connected to the plug socket as well. This makes the trimmer an adaptive tool that can work with and without a source of power.
The trimmer leaves you with nothing to guess about the condition of the battery. The design houses a 3 set LED indicator that indicates the progress of charging when plugged into a socket. It also shows the residual battery level when being used. You can constantly check this battery level indicator to see of the trimmer will last your planned grooming session, especially during travels.
Slide-up trimmer accessory.
The trimmer is designed for maximum functionality, and the one tool that proves this beyond doubt is the slide up trimmer. All you need to do is hook up this slide-up trimmer accessory with your trimmer to detail your sideburns and mustache, where there is a need for accuracy. Just slide up the trimmer with your fingers to adjust the length of cutting to get the groomed look you desire.
Washable and easy to maintain.
Another major feature of the trimmer is that fact that the tool is washable under running water, which makes it quite easy to clean and to reuse. All you need to do is hold the trimmer under the tap and cleanse it with the brush available with the package to remove any residues on the trimming tool. The brush has been crafted to clean deep with the brush to ensure that it stays clean.
The trimmer also comes with a blade oil that needs to be applied once every six months. All you need to do is use a drop of oil on the blades and spread it evenly using the brush. This ensures that the trimmer will last you long and give you some gratifying grooming sessions.

My conclusion on the Panasonic ER GB80 S Trimmer
The Panasonic ER GB80 S is certainly a beard/hair trimmer worth the price. With an arsenal of features lined up to fire for maximum convenience, there is no room for any inconvenience that can come out of using this trimmer. Having anti-allergen blades are a big plus point as this makes the trimmer ideal for users with sensitive skin issues. The 45°slanted blades is a good design input that lets the tool do justice even in tricky portions.
The fact that the trimmer can be adjusted in 39 steps on 0.5mm measures is yet another welcome plus point and the three combs available for specialized purposes makes the device pretty handy in almost all needs and purposes. The battery is pretty decent with close to 50 minutes of continuous running, but the capacity could have been increased to suit for longer travel needs. However the fact that the battery gets charged within an hour is good enough to ensure these minor setback foes do not affect the overall experience. Being washable under a running faucet ensures the trimmer can easily be cleaned in a matter of seconds, and the fact that it is easy to maintain makes the user independent and proud.
