Year in and year out, Panasonic comes up with high-quality products that always leave us in awe. This time, it has tried its hand at beard trimmers and has once again done wonders. The powerful and versatile Milano All-in-One Trimmer ER-GB40-S is everything it was advertised to be. Its impressive features have made it a commercial hit, and here we will be looking why.

Firstly, we will be looking at the beard trimmer’s performance. Panasonic’s ER-GB40-S houses stainless steel blades that have been inclined at an angle of 45 degrees. This inclination makes it very easy for the user to sculpt, style, trim, cut, and detail his facial hair. If you’re a personal grooming enthusiast who loves to try out new facial hair designs, this is the beard trimmer for you.

Even though it takes the Panasonic trimmer quite long for its first charge, it delivers a long runtime once charged. If you don’t have enough time on your hands to wait for your trimmer to finish charging completely, then you’ll be pleased to know that Panasonic has added a corded operation feature. This means that you can use your trimmer even while it’s being charged.

All in all, the ER-GB40-S is a perfect little beard trimmer that was made keeping the needs of the people in mind. It offers great value for money which is why we recommend all grooming enthusiasts to try it at least once.
