Rechargeable Men's Electric Shavers

Rechargeable Men's Electric Shavers: Convenient at Home or on Holiday

Electric shavers make grooming at home or on holiday easy and even fun. You can attend to yourself as needed so that you always look professional and presentable. Electric shaving kits fit snugly in bags for easy carrying during long holidays or brief weekend excursions.

Do you need a special cleaning kit with these shavers?

It depends on the shaver. Some come with kits, whereas others can be cleaned in a variety of ways. Many electric shavers have detachable heads that you can wipe clean, sanitise or run under hot water. Each shaver comes with its own set of manufacturer's instructions for best cleaning and care techniques. Instructions are also quite often available online.

Are there electric shavers for both dry and wet shaving?

Yes, there are. Each shaver's product info specifies its ability to work dry or wet. Dry and wet shaving are not the same as waterproof. A dry/wet shaver is an electric shaver that works efficiently on dry or wet skin, such as skin lathered with shave soap or shave cream. A waterproof electric shaver contains hermetically sealed inner components that make the shaver safe to use in the shower.

What is a pivoting head versus a beard trimmer?

An electric shaver with a pivoting head adjusts its neck's angle automatically to shave you closely without cutting or nicking your skin. At the same time, the rotating shaving heads flex in all directions, conforming gently to the landscape of your face. By contrast, a beard trimmer is a tiny attachment or a built-in edge that lets you etch precise lines along your facial contours, your profile and sideburns. Refurbished and opened-never used men's electric shavers with beard trimmers are rather common and widely available these days. Some examples of brands and products of this type include:

  • Wahl Professional 5-Star Finale
  • Philips Norelco OneBlade
  • Braun Series
  • Remington Power Series
Which men's electric shavers work abroad?

Most of the major brands produce men's electric shavers that are dual-voltage. This means they can accommodate an input voltage of 100 to 240. This information typically appears in a given product's title, description or specs, so be sure to check for this info if you're seeking an electric shaver for travel. Whether you shave at home or abroad, the average rechargeable shaver has a shave time of 45 to 90 minutes on a full battery. The following are some brands that manufacture dual-voltage electric shavers:

  • Panasonic
