  • Before using your trimmer for the first time, charge it for 24 hours. Note during this charge ignore the electronic indicators as they are in “start-up cycle”.
  • Plug the adaptor into your trimmer and then plug the charging adaptor unit into a 100-240 volt domestic power outlet. Check to ensure that the trimmer On/Off switch is OFF. The Charging Indicator Light will glow to indicate that it is charging. The light will turn off after charging is complete.
  • The batteries cannot be overcharged, but it is recommended that charging be discontinued and the trimmer stored away if it will not be used for an extended period of time (2-3 months).
  • The trimmer will be fully charged in 2 hours.
  • To preserve the life of the batteries, discharge them by running the trimmer until the blades move slowly. Switch off and recharge for 24 hours. Do this every 6 months.
  • Use the trimmer only with the charging adaptor supplied.

NOTE: This product is for cordless use only, it cannot be used while it is connected to the mains power outlet or while it is charging.



Your trimmer is supplied with the main blade already fitted. It is easier to remove and refit the main blade with the vacuum chamber removed.

  • Switch your trimmer off.
  • Hold the trimmer in one hand.
  • Push the top of the blade away from the trimmer body using your thumb. (Fig A)
  • Use enough force to free the blade from the trimmer body. Once free, lift it off.
  • Fit the desired blade by engaging the tab on the back of the blade into the rear of your trimmer. Press the front of the blade down until it clicks.
  • Replace the vacuum chamber.


  • Switch your trimmer off.
  • Depress the comb lock button then slide the adjustable comb into the guides on the rear of your trimmer. Slide the comb all the way down then release the button.
  • To adjust the length of the beard comb, depress the comb lock button then slide the comb to the desired length.
  • The Adjustable Beard Comb attachment has 8 Length settings: 2-16mm (in increments of 2mm). Begin with a higher numbered setting. Adjust cutting length as desired once you are familiar with using the trimmer, it is better to select a longer hair length setting in order not to trim too much hair.


  • Beard, moustache and sideburn hairs should be dry.
  • Avoid using lotions before using your trimmer.
  • Remove the Adjustable Beard Comb attachment if you are: defining hairline edges such as sideburns, trimming the nape of your neck, trimming your beard line on front of neck.
  • Before trimming beards, comb your hair in the direction that it grows so that the hairs are at their maximum height and facing in the same direction.
  • Since all hairs do not grow in the same direction, you may want to try different trimming methods (i.e. upwards, downwards or across). Practice is best for optimum results.

NOTE: Use slow light pressure. Too much pressure may trim off more hair than desired.


Your beard trimmer is fitted with high quality blades. To ensure long lasting performance, clean the blades and trimmer regularly.


  • Ensure your trimmer is switched off and disconnected from the charger before cleaning.
  • Remove the blade. Brush the accumulated hair from the blade.
  • Wipe your trimmer body with a damp cloth and dry immediately. Do not submerge your trimmer in water.
  • Refit the blade.
  • Press the two vacuum chamber release buttons and remove the vacuum chamber (Fig B).
  • Empty the vacuum chamber (Fig C) and rinse it under a running tap. The chamber must be completely dry before returning it to the trimmer.


  • The trimming heads are washable for ease of cleaning. Always remove the trimming head from your trimmer before washing.
  • Rinse the trimming heads under a running tap to remove any hair clippings (Fig D).
  • Once dry, refit the trimming head.

NOTE: If you rinse these attachments with cool or warm water (never use hot water) then they will need to be lubricated with light-grade oil or sewing machine oil (1-2 drops over the cutters).
NEVER run the entire Vic Groom unit under the tap.
