In this article we do a Titanium Max review. I will be talking about MicroTouch Titanium Max Lighted Personal Trimmer. This trimmer is considered to be affordable while delivering top performance for men. Obviously, I will be talking about the pros and cons of this device and see if it is worth the money.
One of the reasons why I want to review this product is that lately, there has been a surge in the popularity of grooming tools. So there are many new products on the market, and some of them are just unique. Therefore, I am interested to see if MicroTouch Titanium Max Lighted Personal Trimmer will impress me or not and if it can compare with other products.
What is MicroTouch Titanium Max Lighted Personal Trimmer?
MicroTouch Titanium Max is a multi-purpose grooming tool that is marketed as affordable. It uses a single AA battery to run and is lightweight. The trimming blade is special on this as it has micro-teeth that trim hair. The micro-teeth blade is much smaller compared to older versions of trimmers. So the blade can reach places that larger trimmers cannot.
Where can you use MicroTouch?
The manufacturer claims that you can use this product to clean up sideburns, eyebrows, necklines, and ear and nose hairs. Basically, you can use it on many areas of your face.
What do you get with your purchase?
Here are the things you get with your purchase:
- One piece of AA battery
- An instruction booklet
- One blade guard
- MicroTouch Titanium Max Lighted Personal Trimmer
- Two guide combs
- And one cleaning brush
The trimmer measures 5 7/8″ inches long with a blade length of 11/16″ inches. You can use the AA battery included with your purchase to power it. Turn it on by pressing the power button located on the back.
Is it worth getting?
This is an important part of the MicroTouch Titanium Max review. I can confidently say that this trimmer works as intended. It can easily trim hairs without much trouble. However, I want to say that there is nothing special about this trimmer. It is generic in quality, and nothing that the trimmer has can impress me. Both feel and performance are just mediocre, but you get what you pay for. It performs as you would expect with the money that you spent. So don’t expect anything extraordinary.
MicroTouch is great for edging on your beard and face. You can use it on some areas like around the mouth, under the nose, and the eyebrows. Unfortunately, the guide combs don’t work well at all. The trimmer works best with them, but this is just my personal opinion.
When I used MicroTouch with the guide combs attached to trim my arm hair, the result was not satisfying. The guide combs would routinely miss longer hair that I want to trim. So I decided to just use MicroTouch normally as it is the easiest way to do it.
One more thing I want to say is that despite the device working well for certain hairs like facial hair and eyebrows, I don’t see myself using it for longer than a year. But then again, MicroTouch is affordable, so I don’t lose much.
What tool do I recommend over MicroTouch?
One better option for people who are looking for a great trimmer is the Philips Norelco OneBlade Trimmer. This trimmer is amazing as it works well for just about anywhere on the body. Not to mention that it is a powerful trimmer that can handle any hair.
Pros and cons
- Comes with one AA battery
- No discomfort after using it
- The LED light is useful
- A nice, rubberized texture on the handle
- Great placement for the power button
- Comes with a blade guard
- The size fits nicely in my hand
- Motor sounds cheap
- Doesn’t have a quality build that can compete with other trimmers
- Micro blades are weak and prone to damage
- Cheap plastic outer casing
- Can’t handle fall damage
- Won’t last long
- The guide combs don’t work well and don’t lock into place
- Not waterproof
- Blades are not replaceable
Tips on using MicroTouch
Okay, this Titanium Max review would not be complete without tips. So it’s clear that MicroTouch isn’t really a reliable trimmer, so there are certain ways to use it properly. First, when using the guide, combs try to use various angles to make it work. Sometimes going with the direction of flow of the hair is the best method. Second, clean the micro-teeth regularly as gunk and hair can easily clog them. Do not clean the blade with water, or it could get damaged.
Titanium Max Review Conclusion
MicroTouch Titanium Max Lighted Personal Trimmer has its own pros and cons. However, considering how cheap the trimmer is, I can say that you can purchase it if you are looking for an affordable trimmer. Don’t expect miracles, however, as the trimmer is as mediocre as it gets.
