MicroTouch Switchblade Review #HolidayGiftGuide
I love reviewing new and innovative products. Especially when they were designed to make my life easier and more organized. The MicroTouch Switchblade is a 2-in-1 trimmer that lets you consolidate your grooming needs into 1 device. For me, that is ideal because I really do hate having multiple trimmers, and such cluttering up my vanity.
The MicroTouch Switchblade has a mini trimmer located on one end, and a full size trimmer located at the other end. To switch between the trimmers, you just slide the red portion of the handle to either side of the trimmer. This makes switching between the mini and full size trimmers quick and simple. I like not having to pop in separate trimmer heads like other universal trimmers I’ve used in the past.
The MicroTouch Switchblade can be used for numerous grooming chores, like lining up your beard, mustache, or side burns. You can also keep your hair line looking clean, and sharp with the full size trimmer head. In addition, both the mini and full size trimmer heads come with snap on guides to control how short you trim your hair.
The MicroTouch Switchblade is lightweight, small, and portable, so you can take it with you traveling really easily. Just make sure you bring extra batteries, or make sure the ones that are installed aren’t on their last leg. The MicroTouch Switchblade takes 2 AA’s, which is convenient. Although I prefer built-in rechargeable batteries in my portable trimmers, removable conventional batteries have their advantages. Keep in mind, you can always use rechargeable AA batteries. Plus, you don’t need to worry about battery life declining over time.
The MicroTouch Switchblade does give a comfortable trim. I didn’t experience any of my hairs being caught in the trimmer (OUCH!), and it had enough power to cut through course beard hair.
Overall, this is a pretty nice trimmer. It saves space in your bathroom cabinet, and tackles most of your “in-between-haircut” trimming needs. It’s probably not going to last you too many years, but it’s innovative and works! Plus, at a price point of $19.99, it’s totally worth the small investment.
