0.5mm increments from o.5 to 20.0mm give you the trimming length of your beard and hair as you wish, and it will be smooth, perfect for trimming, cutting, clipping, and detailing.

Slide-up Trimmer:

There is a built-in precision slide-up trimmer in the Panasonic ER-GB80 trimmer.

The trimmer is handy for detailing and edging.

Since the trimmer head is wider, it’s pretty uncomfortable to make precision trimming with the main trimmer blade.

That is why the precision trimmer is important for final touches.

3 Comb Attachments:

The Panasonic ER-GB80 all-in-one trimmer comes with 3 comb attachments for your hair, beard, and body hair which offer you desired trimming lengths.

One of the combs (1 to 10mm) is for closer, cleaner mustache and beard trimming Another one is (11 to 20 mm) for longer hair.

The 1.5 mm attachment is for the legs, chest, shoulders, underarms, and other areas.

Cordless/ Corded Trimming Machine:

It’s a versatile trimmer that allows you to trim while charging or cordless.

That means you never need to worry about the battery charge while you are on the go since you can use it corded.

But you have to take some extra caution while using corded.

  • Never use corded while the device is wet.
  • Do not use the trimmer with a wet hand while charging.
  • Make sure your beard is fully dry while using corded.
  • Never use a wet attachment while charging if the attachment is not fully dry.

Rechargeable Battery:

The battery of the Panasonic ER-GB80 is rechargeable, and the charging time is 1 hour.

With 1 hour full charge, the trimmer provides 50 minutes of continuous cordless performance.

There is an LED indicator on the body of the trimmer.

This indicator shows how much the charging level remains and when you need to recharge the device.

100% Waterproof Trimmer:

The Panasonic ER-GB80 is 100% waterproof that ensures risk-free rinse.

Not only the trimmer but all the trimmer’s attachments are washable.

Therefore, the cleaning process becomes easier and safer.

However, I didn’t have to always clean the trimmer with water because the trimmer comes with a cleaning brush that is useful for doing fast cleaning.

Built Quality

Panasonic ER-GB80-S beard and body trimmer

The Panasonic ER-GB80-S beard and body trimmer look very ergonomic.

Each side has a rubberized grip, making it comfortable to hold in hand and preventing the trimmer from dropping in the sink or shower.

There is an on/off in the front side of this trimmer on the lower 2/3rds.

There are also 3 button lights. When you plug this trimmer, these 3 buttons light up red, and these lights will tell you the dead charging.

This trimmer takes 1 hour to charge, and you can use it for about 50 minutes. There is also a pop-up trimmer.

It is very sturdy, and you feel good in the hand. This is plastic, but it does not feel like it may be.

It is plastic, but it feels sturdy got a rubberized grip. So this will not slip out of your hand, and you feel good for its lightweight.

The comb attachment heads are very adjustable.  The good clicking does not feel cheap.

Who Should Buy Panasonic ER-GB80-S???

This device is for those men who want a premium trimming experience and alternate with an older device.

This is especially for stylizing beards in different measurements and clean bodies and also sheer up mustaches and sideburns.

But this will not provide a 100% close shave off your beard.

If you want a device for a close shave only, you should try dedicated electric shavers.

Use of Comb Attachments

The 3 combs provide a large number of hair clipping styles, about 39 chaises which is enough to make anyone pleased.

Anyone can easily understand with com for shorter beard or hairstyle.

You have to use the shortest tripped comb while you would like long hair or a beard, you have to use tripped hair comb.

You will get three different heads for long medium and mustache and shorter trimming.

I also like that this shaver has a water drain and the slide-up precision trimmer, so you can get your mustache that way.

You will get 3 comb attachments A, B, and another one is black in color.

One of these is shorter. You can feel it is very sturdy, and it does not feel like cheap plastic. Sometimes these things feel not very durable.

This one’s got a thick head, good plastic stuff, and it is cheap on this one.

Another one is for longer hair.

This one’s going to be for longer beard, hair, and body hair as well as this trimmer is designed not just for your beard but you can use it for other parts of your body.

The 3rd comb is like the razor-cut comb. It is for closer trim, like 1.5mm.

Beard Comb(1-10mm)

Hair Comb (11-20mm)

Body Comb(1.5mm)

Usage of other Items Included with the Package

Trimming Oil

Panasonic recommends after each use, you have to use the trimming oil.

It is essential for the trimmer because it keeps it workable and long-lasting.

The Travel Bag

The trimmer comes with a nice zipper bag, not the highest quality, but it looks like it would do the trick, you go it in your man’s bag, and it would work.

Cleaning Brush

You will see many reviews online saying that the hair pulls if you boil this, probably, the hair does not pull now.

There’s also another feature that can lift this up and open it, and you can take the little brush.

This brush is specifically made for this device, and it looks very small.

The AC Adapter

Panasonic provides an AC adapter with the trimmer in the box to recharge the trimmer, which is auto-adjustable with any voltage.

For being auto adjustable, you can use it anywhere in the world with any power voltage.

It is very useful while you are in traveling to different countries.

The Panasonic ER-GB80-S beard and body trimmer is a modern male grooming standard.

I personally recommend this one for men who tend to stylize their beard and hair and remove body hair with a quality product.

This is not recommended for those guys who intend to have close and smooth shaves.

As everyone knows, trimmers do not provide closer shaves like electric shavers.

But trimmer is special for stylizing the beard, hair, mustache, and sideburns.

This device is great for trimming operations and would be best for men looking for a trimmer to shape their beards and hair.

Is there any quick charging facility?


Can you shave closely with the trimmer?

No, it’s only for trimming hairs from stubble to 20mm long.

What is the supported volt?

Universal volt (100v – 240v).

Do the blades need oiling?

Yes. But not all the time. Oiling the blades keeps them blade sharper and irritation free.


  1. What is the longterm reliability of this product?
    What about product quality?
    Are the blades replaceable when they need replacement?
    I have seen many negative reviews on amazon for this product.
    Please advise.
