Hair Length Settings and Combs

It comes with two combs, one for trimming the beard and one for detailing.
This dual-sided trimmer has a wider end for perfectly straight lines on your neck as well as sideburns and a narrow end to style hard-to-reach areas around the nose and mouth.
The Norelco trimmer 9100 has a pop-up laser guide that projects a line directly on your face so you can properly align the trimmer before it touches any hair. This helps you create perfectly straight and symmetrical lines every time. And because the laser is Class 1, the light it emits is completely safe for the eyes.
Blade Cleaning and Maintenance
The 9100 uses Chromium steel blades. These blades are self sharpening so you don’t have to spend your time oiling the blades.
The blades´ rounded tips and combs will help to prevent any skin irritation and will glide smoothly on the face.
Norelco has made it easy for you to clean the device by simply rinsing the head (minus the comb) under running water.

This device comes with a Lithium Ion battery and can be used with or without the cord.
Its rechargeable battery provides up to one hour of cordless use after one hour of charging.
The 9100 is not water proof and it comes with a digital display so that you know what trimming length the trimmer is set to. It also comes with a storage pouch to keep the device and the combs in.
