The comb of the Philips Qc5380 is designed to be contour following for a close and accurate trim. It follows the contours of your head, face or body comfortably and does not cause irritation. It has 12 length settings from 0.5mm to 21mm and also a comb designed particularly for that 1mm crew cut look.
The Li-Ion battery on this trimmer is good and will last for 75 minutes of cordless trimming without needing to be recharged. When you do charge the trimmer you will need to leave it for an hour for another 75 minutes. There is also a display which shows will warn you when the battery is running low. It is a constant red light and when there is around ten minutes left it will start to flash orange, so you should not end up caught out with half a haircut.
