How do I charge my Philips Groomer?

Published on 20 July 2022
Follow our instructions below on how to charge your Philips Groomers, Beard Trimmers and Hair Clippers.

Charging instructions for Philips Groomers

You should charge your Philips Male Grooming devices when the charging indicator on the body of your groomer signals low battery. If your device does not have a battery indicator on it, then charge it whenever the groomer is working slower than usual.
  • Insert the charging plug into your grooming device's charging socket. Make sure the plug's shape matches the socket and is completely inserted. Do not force it in.
  • The charging indicator on your device will start flashing to indicate that the groomer is charging. Once the groomer is fully charged, the charging indicator lights up continuously for approximately 30 minutes and then automatically turns off to save energy.
  • After charging, unplug the charger from the power socket and the groomer. Your groomer is now ready to use.
For most groomers, normal charging time is between 1 and 8 hours. If you are charging your device for the first time, we recommend letting it charge for at least 3 hours. Check your user manual for specific charging instructions for your model.

Charging your Philips Groomer with a charging stand

If your Philips Groomer comes with a charging station, follow the instructions below on how to charge it. 
  • Connect the charging station to a working power socket.
  • Place your groomer in the charging stand. You may see a light on your groomer or charging stand to indicate that the charging process has begun.
  • Once the groomer is fully charged, unplug the charging stand and continue using your groomer.

Battery-operated devices

Some Philips grooming devices run on disposable AA batteries. To charge these devices, you need to ensure that the disposable batteries have not run out. If your trimmer does not switch on or runs slower than before, it is time to replace the batteries.
Only use the disposable batteries as specified in your user manual. Do not mix different types of batteries or new and used batteries. When putting in new batteries, make sure the + and - poles of the battery point in the right direction.
