This battery will provide the machine 60 minutes of running juice per 8 hours of charge.
The charging time is really so long!
And it may be a big issue for you while comparing with the Philips Norelco Multigroom 7000‘s battery life.
But the price range of Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 makes us surrendered.
There is also a quick charge option.
After 5 minutes of charge, the battery will provide enough juice of 1 trim.
There is no battery indicator that will show you the battery percentage or empty battery status.
Since, there is no LED battery indicator, that I had to set alarm during charge. But I think it is not a big deal.

I have to say that the Multigroom 3000 is a quality trimmer and at a price point, it is well worth.
That said, there are a few notable drawbacks to keep in mind.
As mentioned earlier, the lack of the foil, the shaver attachments will limit your ability to have a smooth shave, but this should be made up for the savings in your pocket.
If you are happy with the stubble finish, you are good to go.
And they both use a beard attachment comb that can be adjusted on the device multigroom 3000.
There are not many length options, as far as switching in and out of the guards, there is no issue.
Here as the snap and click attachments made it quick and easy to move one to the next.
I would have preferred to have more grooming lengths similar to other Multi-groom devices the sizes available were close enough.
Where I saw the Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000’s advantage on the precision trimmer, this is the smallest profile I have come across the quarter inch frame fit into tight spaces with ease.
Overall, I am impressed with the result of this trimmer.
It is affordable, its quality made and it gets the job done.
