Philips Norelco Bodygroom 3100 Features

Self-sharpening blades

I think I can speak for everyone when I say the Philips Bodygroom 3100's most exciting feature is its self-sharpening blades. This is a feature almost unheard of in other trimmers or razors on the market and is a huge plus. Not only will this save you time in the future, but it will also keep your shaves consistent, reduce the occurrence of razor burn or nicks and cuts (something dull blades are infamous for) and increase the overall life expectancy of your new razor.

Long back attachment

Another great feature is its long back attachment. Without getting into too much detail, this makes shaving your back a genuine possibility and a minor inconvenience. Even for those of us with the flexibility required to shave our back with a standard razor, the result tends to be somewhat inconsistent, and the actual process of doing so tends to be rather inefficient. This will save you time while giving you results you can be satisfied with.

Reduces the chance of cuts and razor burn

Also, it's razors, and the head is both made in a way that reduces the occurrence of cuts and razor burn. Both of these issues are something we've all had to experience at some point or another. This makes it a more convenient self-care product by producing a better result every time.

Extended Battery Life With High Backup

Apart from the handle, this unit is similar to the BG2038 in battery life in addition to performance and works extremely well. The Philips Norelco Body Groomer BG2034 comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The battery gives the groomer enough power; it will provide you with 50 minutes of cordless working time.

The groomer has an LED display on the front of the body. The LED display will indicate if the battery is full/low/empty.

Battery full = LED light green.
Low battery charge, LED light turns orange.
When the battery goes low, it will give you an alarm.

Waterproof

It is fully waterproofs and can be used in the shower. This Philips Bodygroom is simple to clean as well as can be used with water/foam.

Captures both long and short hair

Lastly, the head is made in a way that efficiently captures both long and short hair. If you're the waiting a while between shaves, you've no doubt run into situations where you're either going through several heads for one shave or picking hairs out of your razor with an old toothbrush. If the above sounds a lot like you, you can rest easy knowing the Philips Bodygroom bg2034 won't give you this problem, no matter how long you wait in between shaves.

Performance

The Philips Bodygroom bg2034 doesn't only perform well; it acts in a very convenient manner. Its self-sharpening blades, its ability to trap hairs of all length, and its extra-long back attachment ensure you'll be able to get the job done quickly, easily, and efficiently. If you're looking for something that can tackle a significant role on short notice, while still getting you out the door in time, look no further than the Philips Norelco Bodygroom series 3100. Purely from a performance perspective, it's one of the best razors on the market and possibly the best razor in its price range. It'll get the job done every time and leave you with results you can be happy about.

Durability

Once again, the bodygroom fails to disappoint. Its self-sharpening blades mean you'll very rarely have to switch heads, instantly increasing its durability factor. Couple that with its ability to trap long hairs (long hairs quite possibly being the number one reason for disposed of heads), and you'll find every head lasting for quite some time.

Of course, heads aren't the only thing that matters when it comes to a product's overall durability. Its mechanical properties seemingly never run into issues, and, as is the case with any well-trusted brand, when they do, Phillips has no problem going out of their way to resolve the issue. In terms of durability alone, the Philips Bodygroomer holds up just fine.

Price

I'm not going to say that the Philips Norelco Bodygroom bg2034, series 3100 is cheap. However, you can't call it expensive. The most crucial factor when looking at any product's price, however, is what you're getting for your money, and, in this case, you're getting a whole lot.

If you have up to few bucks to spend on a razor, you'll undoubtedly feel happy with the value you're getting in the Philips Bodygroomer 3100. It is, without a doubt, one of the very best self-care products in its price range. Couple that with the fact that it can replace several self-care tools, and you'll quite possibly even save money in the long run by purchasing it.

What we liked

  • Additional long handle makes it extremely convenient to shave your back.
  • It reduces the occurrence of cuts and razor burn.
  • Self-sharpening blades make maintenance easy or non-existent.
  • Three combs incorporated for dissimilar body hair lengths.
  • Battery light indicates the battery status
  • 50 minutes cordless use
  • Nearly 100% waterproof

What didn't like

  • Using it wet creates too much resistance with the skin.
  • Takes about 8 hours to charge fully
  • A bit noisy

The Verdict

The Philips Norelco Bodygroom 3100 has nearly every feature you could hope for in a body shaver and then some. One might expect to pay almost double its cost for a razor of similar quality with the same features (not an exaggeration). Couple that with its great durability, and you'll likely find it will pay for itself after some time.

It can tackle any job you could throw at it. It can replace several different tools of the same variety, and the amount of time you'll spend maintaining it is minuscule when compared to other products of its type. What else could you ask for in a body shaving product? If you're in the market to purchase body razors for a reasonable price, this should be at the top of your list.
