EGO Cordless Nose Hair Trimmer Preview
This week a well-known manufacturer of outdoor power tools has ventured into new territory. The rechargeable EGO Cordless Nose Hair Trimmer promises to be a game-changer in the personal grooming category. This tool is loosely based on the EGO 56V cordless blower. However, instead of using an impeller to drive air, the 5.6V nose trimmer features interleaved quad cutters to neatly and efficiently trim excess nose hair.
NOTE: This was an April Fool’s post from 2018
When you’re done cutting, the tool features an “evacuation” feature to pull the loose hair out and into the sink basin through the integrated micro-blower.
“We designed the rechargeable 5.6V EGO Nose Hair Trimmer to provide over 30-days of operating time before needing a recharge. It’s our most sophisticated product and features over 200 moving parts in a tool that’s just 4-inches long.”
– Steve Glassman, marketing manager

On top of that, the new EGO nose hair trimmer is compatible with all EGO cordless batteries and chargers. Simply slide the included USB adapter cable onto the charger and the EGO nose hair trimmer recharges to 80% in less than 5 minutes. The included USB cable and charger can also plug into any 120V outlet and recharge the trimmer in under 30 minutes.

We’ve tested this new nose hair trimmer ourselves and found it to provide great ergonomics and plenty of cutting power. The new tool features a comfort tip with a pliable rubber overmold that conforms to any shape nose. It fits perfectly into the nostril and cuts all nose hair simultaneously. Plus, the evacuation feature is simply the easiest way to clean a personal grooming product we’ve yet seen.
We think this is just the beginning. Now that EGO has entered the personal grooming category, a shaver seems likely later this year. Perhaps they’ll base it on their 56V self-propelled lawnmower?
