The blades are able to handle more hair and any shaving task with no issue.
The great feature is the battery life.
The battery is pretty impressive; the lithium-ion rechargeable battery of Braun bt3020 will deliver 60 minutes of running time per 8 hours of charge.
The Braun BT 3040 is engineered for cordless and corded use but the Braun BT 3020 is only for cordless use.
You will get more accessories with the Braun BT 3040 than the Braun BT 3020.
There are 2 adjustable combs and a Gillette Fusion pro-glide razor is included with the Braun BT 3040.
