What customers say about "Key Specs"
Remington PG525 Head to Toe Lithium Powered Body Groomer Kit
  • Motor speed stays consistent regardless of how much "charge" is left.
  • Very sharp blades and they are self sharpening!
  • The blades are easy to clean and lubricate. The main trimmer also gets very close without nicking the skin, which is an improvement over the older version—guys will definitely appreciate it.
  • The blades are made of stamped metal which means they are thin and of lower quality so they will not last as long as superior blades.
  • Not really wide enough for use anywhere other than the face.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100 (BG2034) Shave and trim with back attachment
  • This single item has replaced a razor, foil shaver, and clippers for my trimming needs. The clipper sides of the shaving head do a great job at cutting longer hair and the foil center shaves gently and smoothly.
  • The height guards are great and the small size of the head allow it to be maneuvered easily. I love that I can do everything with one tool instead of the 2-3 I had to use before.
  • The back attachment has 7- different locked positions, allowing multiple angles to get those hard to reach spots. It comes with 3-combs for different lengths[1/8"(3 mm.),3/16"(5 mm.),and 9/32"(7mm.)
  • It comes with 3 comb attachments that are much like the kind that comes with a hair clipper. So, for getting very close you’d use no comb, and/or you could choose comb if you want to just trim the length of the hair.
  • requires replacement of the foil every six months or so or it will begin to eat your skin!

Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100 (BG2034) Shave and trim with back attachment
  • I was a bit intimidated by the size of the razor and that it was for men, until I felt it against my skin. It was very smooth and effortlessly removed the hair
  • Battery lasts a longtime, convenient to use in shower, light weight and comfortable to hold.
  • Very light weight and pleasing design. Had issues with pulling hair instead of cutting it.
  • This is a much better trimmer than the one I owned before, it's light weight, safer and comes with more features.
  • The weight is balanced and so it feels nice in your hand.

What customers say about "Features"
Remington PG525 Head to Toe Lithium Powered Body Groomer Kit
  • It is small, has many attachments that work well, and the blade itself has fine teeth that cut hair well.
  • Attachments have a more secure than the Norelco. A few times my Norelco attachment has popped off which can be dangerous.
  • The guards are a nice feature and it comes with a nose hair trimmer as well as a foil trimmer for a close shave. Overall a good product.
  • Its best feature is the blade which cuts close but doesn't ever nick the skin. The blade doesn't cut as close as a shaver, but that is perfectly acceptable.
  • It is not waterproof and cannot be used in the shower.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100 (BG2034) Shave and trim with back attachment
  • I only used it for armpit and bikini area hair removal, but i'm sure it would do a great job on legs or any other below the neck area of the body, as it warns to only use below the neck.
  • The unit was easy to take apart to clean and it snaps back into place easily. I used it without a guard, but it has 3 guard combs for longer hair, a cleaning brush, a charger and an extended handle for use on your back.
  • The clippers on each side of the shaver will shorten the hair then the shaver in the middle shortens them some more.
  • Special design prevents nicks and cuts. It does take a little time to know your own body, like the direction of the hair. to get that real good cut you are looking for.
  • I really like that is water proof, can use wet or dry. Good for any area BELOW the Neck, back and shoulders, under arms, groin, and even legs for that real; smooth feel and look.

What customers say about "Power"
Remington PG525 Head to Toe Lithium Powered Body Groomer Kit
  • The quick charge of this model is extremely handy for when time is of the essence.
  • The rechargeable battery is a great feature.
  • My favorite feature is that its rechargeable.
  • The battery failed after two uses, and it's all in recycling now.
  • This shaver is a decent product. After using it for a few months it does have power issues making it less effective.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100 (BG2034) Shave and trim with back attachment
  • Clean up is easy and the charge lasts a long time!
  • It charges in its base over-night and it says it can be used for 50 minutes without a recharge. I did not time it, but I know I used it for very close to an hour without charging without any trouble.
  • I really like the battery indicator LED, as well as the sleek charging stand that it comes with.
  • Battery life is seriously impressive and lasted through an entire top to bottom trim.
  • however after about 1.5 years of use the battery gave out. and morelos does not sell replacement rechargeable batteries for this product.
