Did Manscaped succeed?

Okay. In the Meridian and Manscaped 3.0 battle, the Meridian trimmer was the winner due to its higher safety margin, more convenience, and its better battery life.

So, did Manscaped 4.0 solve these issues? And what more did the Lawn Mower 4.0 offer?

Performance & Safety

Blades, motors, and batteries are the major attributes of performance and safety. The Lawn Mower 4.0 didn’t change any of these 3 components. It comes with the same blades, motor, and batteries that the Lawn Mower 3.0 has.

So, the Meridian trimmer still has relatively safer results compared to the Manscaped 4.0.

Winner: the Meridian trimmer.

Battery life and charging system

Many customers complained about the battery decay of the Manscaped 3.0. The Manscaped 4.0 comes with a whole new charging system to hopefully handle this problem.

The Lawn Mower 4.0 comes with a wireless dock and Type-C USB. So, you can wirelessly charge your trimmer. Yet, this comes at the expense of the charging time, which surged to 5 hours with the same battery runtime (90 minutes). 

On the other hand, the Meridian trimmer only needs one hour to be fully charged to give you 90 minutes of runtime.

For the battery discharge problem, the Manscaped 4.0 groin trimmer features an overcharging and over-discharging protection circuit to handle this issue. 

Yet, many customers report that the battery problem still exists. It seems that the battery needs to be completely replaced in the next version, not only the charging system.

So, the Meridian Grooming trimmer still has better battery life.

Winner: the Meridian trimmer

Convenience

Attachments: Unlike the Lawn Mower 3.0, the Lawn Mower 4.0 has 2 guards (3-6 mm, 10-13 mm).  The Meridian trimmer also comes with 2 combs (3-6 mm, 9-12 mm). So, you can both pubic trimmer to get any manscaping style.

Colors: The Manscaped 4.0 trimmer comes in one color (mix of glossy and matte black) while the Meridian trimmer comes in 2 colors (onyx, sage).

Power indicator: Both trimmers feature a power indicator that lets you check the remaining battery capacity to avoid unexpected, awkward moments when the battery dies during shaving.

LED Spotlight: The Lawn Mower 4.0 boasts a LED spotlight that you can turn on/off for better lighting and more precision, a feature that the Meridian Grooming trimmer doesn’t possess.

Travel lock: The Manscaped 4.0 has a travel lock while the Meridian doesn’t. So, the Manscaped Lawn Mower 4.0 is a better option for heavy travelers.
