Philips Norelco 7100 Body Groom – Best Grooming Trimmer

Philips Norelco 7100

The Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 is an electric, rechargeable razor that is specifically designed for shaving and trimming body hair.

As opposed to facial hair. In other words, it is for cutting body hair from the neck, all the way down to the toes, manly bits included.

It is widely considered “the electric razor that every hairy man should own.”  It is also known for being very well-built, of high quality.

And totally worth its price, which is usually in the $80 range. It is waterproof and touted as being particularly effective when used in the shower.

This razor and trimmer are unique for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is that it has been designed specifically with men’s, uhm, intimate shaving needs in mind.

And it has been reported to be particularly useful in that arena.  

Another feature that sets the Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 apart from other comparable electric razors is its design.

On one end, there is a traditional razor shaving head; on the other end, there is a special trimmer head, with a fixed and adjustable comb attachment, allowing the user to tailor the Norelco Body Groom 7100 to his specific grooming needs, quickly and efficiently.

Finally, another unique factor about this shaver is that it is fully waterproof, and performs particularly well in the shower.

The heat and steam from the water soften body hairs, and the Norelco Body Groom does the rest.

Virtually no mess is left behind when this razor is used in the shower. Plus, once you’re finished shaving and trimming, you can just rinise the shaver with cool water, and clean-up is finished. Voila.

Philips Norelco 7100 Body Groom Specs

Advantage

On the trimmer head side, the Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 has an adjustable, built-in trimming comb with five length settings.

They range from ⅛” to 11/25”.  From there, you select your preferred length and easily lock it in, then trim away.

Secure rubberized grip, particularly important for preventing dropping accidents during in-shower usage.

No attachments needed, due to the built-in adjustable length settings. Built-in comb also sturdier than typical trimmer comb attachments, making breakage unlikely and loss of guiding comb virtually impossible.

Waterproof and ideal for in-shower use. Blades are self-sharpening, meaning you’ll never experience pinching or nicking in sensitive areas due to needing to press too hard with a dull-bladed shaver.

The blades are also self-lubricating, adding to the constant comfort of the Norelco Body Groom 7100 electric and rechargeable wet/dry dual shaver and trimmer.

Foils are guaranteed hypoallergenic and extremely unlikely to cause irritation. Rounded tips are extra gentle on sensitive areas. Charging stand is sleek, foldable, and does not take up much space.

5 settings for different body hair lengths. Takes only one hour to charge fully. A full charge provides fifty minutes of continuous or accumulated cordless shaving time. 

Also can be used to shave completely dry. 45-day Norelco Money Back Guarantee. Also backed by a full 2-year manufacturer warranty.

Disadvantage

Philips Norelco 7100The Norelco Body Groom 3500, which was the model directly before this Body Groom 7100 model,  boasted an extension arm to accommodate the shaving of the back.

However, the Norelco 7100 does not come with such an extension, which many users find disappointing.

There have been numerous complaints that the blades on the Norelco 7100 are simply too sharp for the more challenging and delicate areas of a man’s bits, particularly when the shaver unit is used with its dry-shave function.

Many of these users admonished future customers to never use the Norelco Body Groom 7100 in dry mode when grooming said delicate bits.

Quite a few users of the Norelco 7100 have reported battery issues. It uses a relatively rare, specialty and difficult to replace battery unit.

And a number of users have reported the Norelco 7100 battery to fail totally after only a month or two of proper usage.

Because servicing it requires tasks like cutting, soldering and more, servicing a failed battery yourself is not recommended or even remotely practical.

Other users have reported that, despite claims to the contrary by Philips Norelco, the blades dull quickly and easily, making trimming and shaving painful, uncomfortable, and ineffective.

Issue

Philips Norelco 7100

The heads themselves have been said to wear out quickly, and need frequent replacement,

(However, it is worth noting that some of these issues could be chalked up to defective units. All products will have a certain number of defective products, regardless of how carefully and skillfully the manufacturing process).

The on/off switch on the trimmer unit is positioned awkwardly, which caused the unit to be accidentally shut off frequently when the user is only trying to reposition their hand or get a better grip on the trimmer.

No quick charge function. It will take the full hour to charge, no matter what. The foils and cutters are difficult to remove for cleaning.

It requires a lot of force, and many users have worried about damaging or deforming the blades while attempting to carry out the cleaning process.

Unlike many other trimmers, you cannot simply plug the charging cord into the unit, when traveling for example. You must use the station to charge the trimmer/ shaver.

In one or two cases, users have reported extremely delicate foils, from which frequent pieces broke off and exposed the user to nicking, and even potentially dangerous, deep cuts.

 This is not a common report among users of the Norelco Body Groom 7100.

Specifications and Features

Price and Value for Money 

The Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 is an innovative, versatile and extremely useful tool. E

veryone from men who have a lot of body hair to manage, to a fella who just wants to keep his fun-time bits in sleek and smooth order, as well as everyone in between.

Its dual-headed function as both classical clean-shaver and self-adjustable trimmer vaults it high above other competitors with products in a similar price range.

 It even looks handsome and unique, with the shaver head similar to a traditional multi-bladed men’s razor, and the trimmer head at the opposite end looking like a small, sleek hair trimming clipper head. It looks good. It looks expensive. Hell, it is expensive.

But this extremely versatile and high-functioning item is, arguably, worth the money you will spend to buy one of your own.

Function 

The Norelco Body Groom 7100 electric rechargeable dual-head wet/dry trimmer and shaver thinks of just about everything, as it carries on with its numerous functions.

It adjusts to the users’ unique facial curves and planes, proving a close and customized shave that will not add pressure or irritate your face, as well as Dual Precision heads that can shave hairs of all lengths, including everything from stubble to hairs of any length.  

The Philips Norelco 7100 features a head with a pivoting function, which allows it to closely and smoothly follow the contours of your body. It can be used dry, wet and even with shaving cream, gels and lotions.

It boasts a completely cordless function. The charging station is solid and feels high quality, with little rubber feet to prevent it from slipping around, and is spring loaded to ensure a solid charging connection.

All said, it represents a major improvement over Norelco’s last effort at a wet/dry cordless electric shaver. It even looks handsome.

Philips Norelco 7100 Ergonomics 

The Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 has a nice solid feel to it, with just the right amount of weightiness to denote quality, but it is not so heavy as to hamper easy operation.

 It has a curved design, somewhat similar to a receiver from one of the lightweight and ergonomic home telephones manufactured in the mid to late 1990s.

In other words, it fits the human hand perfectly. It looks striking, with silver, metal-look plastic and rubberized, non-slip rubber grips on the sides.

These features combine to give it an astoundingly natural feel in the hand; it is extremely easy to hold onto and to maneuver, even in a steamy and slippery shower.

Among grooming shaver/trimmers of this ilk, this has got to be one of the most ergonomically pleasing designs I have ever experienced.

Accessories 

Truthfully, the Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 does not need accessories. The length comb is both built-in and adjustable.

The heads are dual, but both are permanently attached and equally functional. However, it does have two included accessories.

  • Storage and Charging Stand
  • Cleaning Brush

Battery life (when fully charged): 50 minutes

Blade type: Dual-sided Shaver & Trimmer,With fixed Trimming Comb

Wet/dry use: Yes

Charge time: 1 hour

Cleaning Unit: no

Ergonomics: Very Good

Accessories: Storage and Charge Stand (foldable),

Cleaning brush

Conclusion

Philips Norelco 7100 The Philips Norelco Body Groom 7100 Electric Rechargeable Wet/Dry Cordless Trimmer Shaver is ready and waiting for any body hair removal task you may throw at it.

It has to be one of the most versatile, convenient and useful shave/trim devices on the market today.  And safe; the rounded, self-sharpening cutters make those little accidents and typical nicking pretty unlikely.

And that oh-so-pleasant pinching (which, as we all know, is a little taste of hell on earth)? Safely left in the dust behind us.

However, there is one feature which, I believe, the Norelco 7100 could do without, and that is the pivoting head.  

I understand that it is supposed to lovingly caress the planes and curves of your body, and that is all well and good.

Do you know how the functional head of a traditional vacuum cleaner pivots and moves, according to how you move it?

Well, it has the strong resistance of the carpet beneath it to keep it from wobbling willy-nilly, all to and fro in every direction.

The tough resistance of the carpet or rug beneath keeps that pivoting function in check.

Now, imagine that same principle, only the pivoting head of the vacuum is the pivoting head of the Norelco Body Groom 7100, and the surface beneath it, the one that is supposed to keep it on task and on track.

And from wobbling and flying off in any old direction it pleases, is nothing but soft, slick, wet, and possibly soap/gel/cream/lotion lubricated human skin. I will leave the rest to your imagination.

Norelco 5700 Shaver Review – Best Rated Norelco Shaver


Electric razors are a modern technology that can deliver a truly exceptional shave.  

With their rotating blades, rotary razors specifically will eliminate a great deal of the effort otherwise involved with shaving.

 All that they require is a light and steady hand, and a keen eye; the blades will do the rest. The Norelco Shaver 5700 is one of the best in its class.  


Advantage Of Norelco Shaver 5700

Aesthetics 
The Norelco Shaver 5700 has a sleek, high-tech appearance.  It contains three cutting elements.

Each is comprised of an outer plastic ring with grooves, an inner metal ring with grooves, and an inner metal disc.  

The top ring serves to lift the hair from the surface of the skin. The hair then passes through holes in the inner metal ring, where it is sliced by the blades.

 Electric razors basically do the work for you. Just move your Norelco Shaver 5700 along the contours of your face, using pressure sparingly.

Affordability
The Norelco Shaver 5700 is both high end, and affordable.  It comes with some highly sought-after features, including a trimmer, a cleaning dock, a removable head, etc.  It is one of the best electric razors in its price range.

A Travel Case
For convenience and hygiene, the Norelco Shaver 5700 comes with a travel case.  A razor this nice should be kept in good condition. Pro tip: charge your razor prior to leaving on a trip, so it is ready to use once you arrive.  

A Trimmer
All good electric razors should come with a trimmer.  The Norelco Shaver 5700 is no exception. It comes with a precision trimmer, which can be attached to the razor once the head is removed.

Trimmers can be used to get at nooks and crannies that an electric razor cannot reach itself, like the nose and ears. It is very handy, and after all, it is the little details that make everything; including the perfect shave.

A Cleaning Dock
Cleaning docks are a new and fancy feature of electric razors.  They require care to be kept in good condition, but as they do help in cleaning your razor, it is a fair enough trade.

The instruction manual is simple and informative.  Have you ever opened an instruction manual and ended more confused than you were to begin with?  This is not an issue with the Norelco Shaver 5700. Its instruction manual contains succinct text and clear, easy to follow steps.  

This way if you run into any issues or have any questions, you are the saved the trouble of having to look it up online. Luckily, if you care for your razor properly, it will not have any such problems anyway.  The model is as sturdy and long-lived as it is easy on the eyes.

Norelco Shaver 5700 A Removable Head
This allows for ease of cleaning, and, as aforementioned, makes room for the trimmer attachment.  It is a feature to keep an eye out for on the hunt for a great electric razor.

Simple Cleaning
It is important to clean your razor often in order to keep it running smoothly.  With the Norelco Shaver 5700, you can remove the head, which is safe to run under water.

This makes washing hairs and clumps away a breeze. All that is required is a little while under the faucet and some careful, well placed tapping on the top and sides to help hairs that are especially stuck.

This is more common when you have not cleaned your razor in a while.  A small paintbrush can also help in these case. Generally, though, the water alone should do the trick.

Just be consistent in cleaning your razor. Ideally, you should wash it out after each use, but waiting until after a couple of uses is fine. For best results, keep your razor squeaky clean and ready to go.

Shower Safe
Conveniently, this razor is waterproof, so it is not only safe to clean in the sink, it is also shower safe.  This can be a nice way to get an effective wet shave during your morning routine.

The steam and extra moisture will soften your hair, which is said to be one of the ways to make it easier to shave.  Finish up with a nice moisturizing after-shave and you are good to go.

Travel Lock Mode
A travel lock is a thoughtful addition to this versatile electric razor.  No one wants to fully charge their razor, leave on a trip, and get it out at the hotel only to find it has been on and lost all of its charge.  The travel lock mode will prevent this inconvenience.

Turbo Mode
For particularly thick hair, or for a quicker shave, the Norelco Shaver 5700 has a turbo mode.  Many suggest to use this mode no matter your hair type or time frame, as it is always the most effective.

 Fortunately the razor has a powerful charge, making it possible to use this mode constantly. Just be sure not to press too hard on your skin.  This is always important with electric razors. Use a little care and let the razor do its job the way it is made to.

Norelco Shaver 5700An LED Display
The Norelco Shaver 5700 boasts a state of the art LED display, which will indicate five things: battery level, cleaning, battery low, replace head, and travel lock.  

This allows you to easily monitor your electric razor, even in a dimly lit room or the dark.

Usefully, it will remind you when you have put your razor on travel lock, so, for example, you are not confused as to why it will not start.

 You will know when to charge your razor, when to clean it, and even when to replace the razor head. You will not miss a beat with the help of the LED display.

A Rubber Grip
Comfort is important in most aspects of life, including shaving.  You shave should be a pleasant experience.
The rubber grip of the Norelco Shaver 5700 is soft, sturdy and molded for fingers to fit snuggly.
It is resistant to water, ensuring that, even when your razor is wet, your hand will not slip.

A Pivoting Head
This is one of the nicest features of the Norelco Shaver 5700. A pivoting head allows the razor the flexibility to accommodate the curve of the jaw, the hollows of the neck, under the nose, etc.

 If you use your dominant hand to shave, and your other hand to pull the skin taut, you can make hard to reach hairs stand up. The pivoting razor can then turn this way and that, to slice the hairs away.  

A Long Battery Life 
The Norelco Shaver 5700 has a Lithium ion rechargeable battery. This takes 60 minutes to charge.  The razor will then last roughly 45 minutes in use.

If your shaves are only a few minutes each, the charge can potentially last you a good while.  If your razor is running poorly, check the charge on the LED interface; it may be a quick fix.

Disadvantage Of Norelco Shaver 5700

Norelco Shaver 5700

A slow shave
One of the most common complaints about the Norelco Shaver 5700 is that it can be slow to shave.  The turbo mode will likely need to be on during the entirety of each use in order for it to work most effectively, and even then.

it will be going at more of an average speed than a “turbo” one.  With this razor, you can realistically expect an average to average-long length shave.

Skin Irritation is a Risk 
All electric razors can risk skin irritation.  The Norelco Shaver 5700 is particularly risky this way, as it is said to sometimes require a few extra passes over an area in order to smooth it completely.

 To counteract this somewhat, don’t go over a spot too much at once. Keep the razor moving across your face and give parts of your skin a break in turns. At the end you can address any leftover stubble, and other details.

Ineffective On Particularly Thick Hair 
Those with thick hair have said that the Norelco Shaver 5700 doesn’t quite do the trick.  It tends to leave stubble behind, even after a few go-overs.

Those with fine to medium hair have had the best results with this razor, saying their skin is left nice and smooth.  Every razor has its particularities.

This is all the more reason to find the one best suited to your needs. It is possible that more luck may be had with a wet or a drive shave with the Norelco Shaver 5700, and that it depends on the individual.

 So if you have thick hair, this razor may not be off the table completely. Do some research and try it for yourself, then decide what you think, and maybe leave a review.

The Trimmer is Detached
A built-in trimmer is simply more convenient.  Razors with a built-in trimmer can easily utilize one and then the other in quick succession.  This trimmer requires the head to be removed, and is then attached in its place. It is a little bit of a hassle.

Conclusion

So, if you are looking for a high end beautiful, comfortable, waterproof razor at an affordable price, and if have fine to medium hair and a bit of time on your hands, the Norelco Shaver 5700 may be the right fit for you.  This razor is a popular choice, and well worth a try.

Top 10 Best Hair Trimmers – Nose & Body Trimmers Reviewed

The 10 Best Hair TrimmersMy wife told me not long after we first met that she liked my hair longer. Up to that point of my life, I’d been getting a haircut approximately every four weeks.

So the sudden request from my someday wife to let it grow longer was a liberating feeling—and to this day it has made life a little less expensive as I’ve saved money on hair cutting costs.

Buyers Guide – Important Factors To Consider In Your Hair Trimmer

Pivot Motor

These trimmers have a low blade speed but a high cutting speed with the blades moving in both directions for double the blade strokes when compared to other kinds of clippers.
If your hair is thick, this kind of trimmer will work well for you.

Magnetic Motor

This type of motor is how most hair trimmers are powered, and this type of clipper is a good choice.

The cut is silky smooth on hair that is finely textured but not as great on thicker hair. A magnetic-powered trimmer may also run hot because of the fast-moving blades, but very little maintenance is needed.

Rotary Motor 

Though hair trimmers that run on rotary power are not as economical, they are used by the pros because they work on all hair types, don’t overheat, and are durable, powerful, and quiet.

Plus, unlike the aforementioned motors, rotary-powered clippers can run at different speeds.

Other things to consider when buying a hair trimmer include whether you want a cordless or corded kind, what kind of blade material they offer, the length adjustability of the trimmer, and what kind of storage the clippers come with.

Also, remember the number your barber uses on you with a hair trimmer to make sure you buy a clipper that can accommodate that cutting range.

Pricier hair trimmers will run in the $70 to $150 range; the mid-range ones will be $30 to $60; and you can find cheaper clippers—some that actually aren’t too bad—in the $10 to $30 range.

Conclusion

Philips Norelco 7100In conclusion, you’ll find that when you find the best hair (and possibly nose) trimmer to suit your grooming needs, you’ll not only save money on haircutting fees but begin to care about your appearance for a more professional look.

If you’ve got the three main tools—an adjustable blade clipper, a detachable blade, and a professional trimmer—you’ll be well on your way.

No matter what kind of trimmer you’re looking for, remember to consider factors such as ergonomics, durability, preciseness, power, and overall ratings by other shavers. Do the research and find the right hair trimmer for you. Good luck!   

Philips Norelco 4100 AquaTec – Ultimate Shaver Review

Philips Norelco 4100 AquaTecThe Philips Norelco Wet and Dry 4100 Cordless Shaver with AquaTec is an electric, rechargeable razor. It is  part of Philips Norelco “PowerTouch” line of budget shavers.

This shaver is known for performing better than any other shavers in its price category.  This shaver also competes well with shavers that are much more expensive.

The best thing  about the 4100, even among this “PowerTouch” line, is that it is fully waterproof. Being Waterproof helps with making it safe for use in the shower and at the sink, as well as with the use of gels, creams and lotions.

Even more impressively, the price increase for adding these features is marginal the Norelco 4100 with AquaTec hovers right around the $60 price range. This price makes it more affordable than most other shavers. 

Additional Benefits of Norelco 4100

The Norelco 4100 provides a close and comfortable shave, with little chance of irritation or razor burn.

It will work particularly well with men who like to keep clean shaven as a general rule, although with daily use, the shave it provides may not be as close as some individuals would desire.

It does not always do well with very short stubble, probably due to the Super Lift and Cut Technology; hairs must be at least long enough to lift where this technology is concerned.

The Norelco 4100 is also notably good for men who keep a clean-shaven head, because the DualPrecision shaving head glides easily over those unique shapes and planes.

Helping to maintain a smooth and clean shaven scalp for those folks who prefer that look.

Specification  Norelco 4100

In other words, despite boasting a “Super Lift & Cut Action’ Technology, it is less effective at cutting longer hairs.

Though it does have a noticeably improved capability to do so when compared with earlier, similar Norelco models that use the same technology.  

Although the Norelco “PowerTouch” line of shavers is their budget line, and thus widely considered inferior to most newer cordless and rechargeable shaver options.

  Technology: AquaTec technology makes the 4100 . fully waterproof, safe for shower, gels/creams/etc

Battery life (when fully charged): 50 minutes . (one shave for QuickCharge option)

Blade type: triple rotary blade head
Wet/dry use: yes
Charge time: 1 hour (3 minute QuickCharge option)
Cleaning Unit: Shave head pops open,  you rinse it & use included brush to clean
Ergonomics: lightweight, feels natural to hold, secure rubberized grip.
Accessories: protective cap, cleaning. brush, charging cord
 

Norelco’s PowerTouch

The Norelco 4100 with AquaTec really stepped up game considerably.

As I already mentioned, it is fully waterproof and has superior charging capabilities, but it’s even aesthetically superior:

more attractive and sleek than earlier models, it features a black, silver and cerulean-blue color scheme on the front of the unit, and a solid matte black reverse side, where the pop-up trimmer lives.

It is also known for being very lightweight and easy to handle and maneuver, while still feeling as if it is made with a reasonably high quality set of materials and design.

The front of the shaver also features the LED display and ON/OFF switch, which is covered by that black rubberized material.

Which does doubly duty by providing that no-slip grip, and protecting the LED display switch from water damage when used wet, with shaving products or inside the shower.

It also eliminates another pesky problem common among shavers, budget and luxury-priced alike: accidentally switching the unit off while trying to reposition your hand during active shaving operation. That is actually a pretty huge deal!

Pros
  • Amazing value for the price.
  • Lightweight unit is easily maneuvered while shaving, and the shape of the unit provides a natural-feeling and comfortable fit.
  • Has PopUp Precision trimmer at the back of the unit.
  • Waterproof and great for in-shower use.
  • Can also use with shaving gels, creams and lotions.
  • LED display and on/off switch are both protected by a rubber overlay.
  • 3 Shaving Heads are low-friction and rounded, which reduces irritation, and they flex easily to follow the unique contours of your face, providing better surface contact and a cleaner shave on tough areas like the jawline and neck (and head, for some).
  • Features “Super Lift & Cut Technology”, which purports to lend comfort to your close shave.
  • One hour of charging produces 50 minutes of cordless use.
  • Small, light, and very portable. No charging dock makes it ideal for traveling.
  • 3 Minute QuickCharge option provides enough power for one full shave.
  • Comes with a protective cap to keep shaver unit safe from damage.
  • Cleaning brush included.
  • Easy, pop-open cleaning access.
  • Very quiet operation.
  • 45-day Norelco Money Back Guarantee.
  • Also backed by a full 2-year manufacturer warranty.
  • Replacement heads for the Norelco 4100 only cost about $20-$25, and they do not need to be replaced very often.
Cons
  • The Norelco 4100 with AquaTec sometimes does not trim every hair the first time. Some users have reported frequently needing to make an extra pass or two in order to obtain the complete, close shave they desire.
  • The motor is not as powerful as other shavers’ motors. This can sometimes cause issues surrounding the 4100’s lower efficiency and rate of speed. However, most consumers seem satisfied with these aspects of the Norelco 4100.
  • Cannot be used while plugged into charging cable. However, this is a standard safety feature for shavers that can be used in the shower.
  • No travel case or pouch included.

Price and Value for Money

Philips Norelco 4100 AquaTec
The Philips Norelco 4100 is a rechargeable Wet and Dry Electric Shaver that is priced, very reasonably, in the $60 range.
The shaver heads, which seldom need replaced, will only set you back about $25 y  you do need to purchase them.

This shaver is a triumph of Norelco’s budget “PowerTouch” line, as it is the first of its kind that is actually fully waterproof.

And even solves that pesky problem (common even with the high-end cordless electric shavers) of an awkwardly placed ON/OFF switch that is far too easy to accidentally switch off while in the middle of shaving.

The craftsmanship and design of the actual, physical product is basic but attractive, lightweight and appealing to the eye.

Its functionalityis dependable, versatile, and completely, totally, absolutely one hundred percent worth its modest $60 price tag.

This is the newest shaver in the innovative PowerTouch budget line of shavers produced by Philips Norelco.

This manufactured and designed by a company already well-known for producing dependable, quality, reasonably-priced electric rechargeable cordless Wet and Dry shavers and trimmers.

As far as I am concerned, the Norelco 4100 Electric Shaver with AquaTec is the deepest notch on their budget belt to date.

The fact that one hour of charging produces fifty minutes of continuous shaver use, which is nearly identical to the charge stats of electric cordless shavers costing twice as much as the Norelco 4100, is another fact worth mentioning.

So is the 3 Minute Quick charge option, because I can think of at least two of those pricey, high-end shavers that need an additional, extra two minutes to complete an identical quick charge process.

Ergonomics

The Philips Norelco 4100 is lightweight and comfortable to hold and to navigate, with rubberized grips to reduce the chance of dropping while using wet, with gels, creams and lotions, or in the shower.

That same rubberized material conveniently covers the ON/OFF button, eliminating the common problem of it being inadvertently tripped on a frequent basis (i.e. while in the middle of a shave).

Accessories

Truthfully, the Philips Norelco 4100 does not really include many accessories, which is not a huge deal-breaker, or anything.

However, a travel case or pouch would have been nice, but I am sure these decisions are all essential to keeping the Norelco 4100 so reasonably priced.

  • Protective cap
  • Charging cord
  • Cleaning brush

Conclusion

The Philips Norelco 4100 AquaTech Wet/Dry Electric Cordless Waterproof Rechargeable Shaver is an effective, worthy shaving tool for the face and head.

It represents a terrific value for acomparably low price, and has elevated Norelco’s PowerTouch line of budget shavers to an exalted level, and it deserves such status.

With its waterproof, in-shower capabilities, the fact that it can be used with shave gels, creams and lotions, and its simple, utilitarian design and moes of operation.

it would certainly make a great gift for shaving beginners, or even just those who are new to the world of wet/dry electric cordless rechargeable razors.

 

How to Clean an Electric Razor – Comprehensive Guide

Overview

How Clean an Electric Razor

Electric razors are the shaving tools of the future. Compared to their non-electric counterparts, electric razors allow you to shave faster, save money, reduce skin irritation, razor burn.

Ingrown hairs and the like, and avoid cuts and nicks entirely.  The only thing non-electrics have on electrics is that they do require a battery, which can die.  

The batteries are rechargeable, however, and rarely take over five minutes, roughly, to charge. Have your electric razor charged up and ready prior to use and this will not be a worry anyway.

Some would say that electric razors are the true way to the closest shave.  You can’t really argue with results, if you are using your electric razor properly.

How to do it

First, pick up a nice pre-shave face wash.  Things to look for: an alcohol base, an exfoliant, and vitamin E.  

How Clean an Electric RazorThe alcohol base will ensure that your face dries quickly and completely.  This is especially handy if you are opting for a dry shave.

If your skin is sensitive, it is possible the alcohol will be a bit harsh.  There are also alcohol-free powder options.

When in doubt, give both a try, and see what works. Exfoliant scrubs away dead skin, leaving a clean canvas for shaving.  

This allows the blades to get even closer to the hairs and thus achieve a closer shave.

It will also keep the dead skin from clogging your pores and contributing to ingrown hairs, as it would otherwise do.  

The vitamin E will help protect your freshly washed skin from irritation while you are shaving.

A rotary electric razor, as its name implies, involves multiple oscillating blades.  A foil electric razor is comprised of one of two narrow blades beneath a screen.

Rotary razors can move in all directions, and foil are limited to left, right, up, down.

If you are looking to buy a new electric razor, these kinds are important to know, as they can help you make your choice.  

Rules And Procedure

How Clean an Electric RazorAs a general rule, foil razors are best for finer hair, and those looking for a truly bald shave. That’s not to say a foil razor can’t offer a variety of different shaves, these are just what it is known for.

Rotary razors, on the other hand, are especially good at handling thicker hair, and leave a very fine stubble.

Both types of razors are capable of an incredibly close shave, so aside from their specialties, it is, in the end, another matter of preference.

Whatever electric razor you utilize, do not use excess pressure.  This can cause skin irritation or razor burns, as electric razors are meant to do most of the work.  

Take extra care around sensitive areas, like the neck. To make the entire shaving process easier, use your dominant hand to hold the electric razor, and the other to pull your skin taught.

 This will cause the hairs to stand up, making your shave more effective. It also allows for precision, as you will be able to feel whether there are any remaining hairs.

Shave against the grain, and at right angles, for the closest shave.  It is up to you, and the capabilities of your razor, whether to do a wet shave or a dry shave.

 Some say a dry shave is best, as it keeps the hairs stiff and brittle, and others claim that wet hair, since it is softened, can be removed more easily.

 A dry shave means that no product or water is used during the actual shave. A wet shave usually involves both water and shaving cream.

Razors with a wet shave capability are great for use at the sink, or even the shower, if it has cord-less capabilities.

It Starts with Cleanliness

An electric razor with wet and dry capabilities, and cord-less capabilities is the ultimate in flexibility. With one of these, you can shave how you like, where you like.

Experiment with both types of shaves to find your preference. Take your time shaving with an electric razor.  If it can be helped, do not skip the face wash, and do not move too quickly.

 Be mindful of each step of preparation, and each swipe of the razor, to achieve the perfect shave.

That being said, do keep an eye on the temperature of your electric razor.  They can heat up, and while this will not be a problem for most of your face, more sensitive areas require a cooler touch.

To solve this, give those areas the first shave, and move on from there. Some particularly heat sensitive spots are the neck and under the nose.

 Get these out of the way at the beginning and you will not have to worry.

Once you have been using your electric razor for a couple of weeks, you will need to lubricate the blades.

 There are special lubricants you can buy for this purpose. This will help prevent the blades from acquiring nicks or dulling too swiftly.

Steps To Follow

How Clean an Electric Razor

Before you can do anything with your electric razor, including lubricating it, you must make certain that the razor is clean.  Lubricant can’t effectively make an electric razor run smoothly if it is left dirty. Luckily, cleaning your electric razor should be quite simple.   

1. Read the manual.  This will tell you what to do with your exact type of razor.  That being said, these general instructions are sure to be of additional help.

2. Turn off the main switch and then unplug the electric razor.  This will make it safe to hold your razor over the sink, which you will definitely want to do to avoid any sort of a mess.  

Water can rinse the fine hair and dead skin down the drain easily. Avoid getting the razor itself wet unless you know it is safe specifically.  Some razors are not meant to get wet inside or outside, so do your  research.

3. At this point, remove the electric razor top.  This should be pretty straightforward (loosen/detach and lift), but if is more complex, refer to the manual once more.  Clean the top and set it aside.

4. Tap the hair clear of your electric razor.  Do not knock your razor against a hard surface, like the countertop or porcelain sink.

 This can cause damage. Use your hand instead, patting the top, back and sides of the razor thoroughly but carefully.  

Some hair is sure to remain, and for this you will need a brush. Some electric razors come with these, but if yours does not, a small paintbrush will work the same way.  

5. Gently use it to swipe at loose hairs stuck in nooks and crannies and even to deftly remove little clumps. Be gentler around the the blades and other finer parts, as they could be accidentally scratched or scuffed otherwise.  

A microbrush would be especially useful for the more delicate work, so if you should come by one either at the store or online, the purchase may be worth your while.

6. There are electric razors touted as self-cleaning.  While these razors are mostly effective at this, they still require a manual cleaning once in a while.

Really, any razor is going to require some care. A little effort here and there can save you hassle, and money, in the future.  No one wants to deal with clogs, dulling blades, or other unnecessary issues.

7. Manually clean your razor like this once a week, roughly.  If you do not, you risk clogs, which will be much harder to remove ultimately.  

Be sure to tap hair from the outside of the razor after your daily shave, too. If you neglect this is will only make the weekly deep-cleaning more trouble.  It is easy enough anyway, and will take but a few seconds.

8. If you care for it properly, the blades in your razor should stay sufficiently sharp for 12-14 months.  They will require replacement around this time.

You will want to act swiftly on this in order to avoid the skin irritation and razor burn that can otherwise come from dulling blades.

Conclusion

How Clean an Electric Razor

All of this being said, the best care in the world won’t change a cheap electric razor into a quality one.  

While cheap razors may save money initially, they will not function as well, are harsher on the skin (more risk for skin irritation or razor burn), and will require replacement more quickly compared to their more reasonably priced counterparts.  

Invest in a better electric razor now and spare yourself some later difficulty. Choose between a rotary or foil electric razor, and consider some accessories like a built-in trimmer or travel case.

If you are feeling fancy, you can go for an electric razor with self-cleaning capabilities, or even one with an LED interface.

With a quality, squeaky clean electric razor, you can try out all kinds of shaves.  Some popular options are the classic moustache, or a goatee.

You can go for a completely clean-cut look and shave it all, and an electric razor will ensure that your entire face is as smooth as can be.

Most people wіll understand аn еlесtrіс shaver іѕ not juѕt аbоut the shaving experience. Surе, thіѕ mіght bе thе most іmроrtаnt раrt, and ѕоmеthіng реорlе wіll look аt first, but іt is thе combination оf features that hаvе tо come together and рrоvіdе rеѕultѕ.

Thеrеfоrе, it is іmроrtаnt tо consider thе bаttеrу lіfе оf thе рrоduсt іn this Brаun Sеrіеѕ 7 790сс Rеvіеw. Does thе battery lіfе рrоvіdе vаluе оr does it fаll flаt оn its face? The battery lіfе is impressive as it lаѕtѕ fоr аn hоur and wіll сhаrgе in minutes.

Thеу hаvе еnѕurеd the AC аdарtеr іѕ nоt gоіng tо ѕlоw dоwn оnе’ѕ рrоgrеѕѕ. Aѕ a cordless solution, thіѕ іѕ impressive, аnd the bаttеrу lіfе саn hоld іtѕ оwn at аll tіmеѕ. Those whо tаkе thеіr tіmе shaving аnd gеttіng as сlоѕе аѕ роѕѕіblе wіll аррrесіаtе hаvіng a shaver that wоn’t dіе out on thеm.

Exсеllеnt Shаvіng Exреrіеnсе

Let’s mоvе оntо the ѕhаvіng еxреrіеnсе аѕ this is what matters mоѕt. Thе OptiFoil іѕ a rеаl winner hеrе.

It bеgіnѕ tо flourish аlоng wіth the ActiveLift tесhnоlоgу іnсludеd in thе ѕhаvеr.

The соmbіnаtіоn оf these two fеаturеѕ ensures thе hаіr іѕ easily lifted (whеn сlоѕе tо thе ѕkіn) and ѕhаvеd down to thе lаѕt mіllіmеtеr.

This closeness mаttеrѕ tо men who are looking fоr thе perfect shave.

Whіlе ѕhаvіng, its реrfоrmаnсе remains соnѕіѕtеnt, and thіѕ іѕ сrіtісаl fоr thоѕе who are going to bе using іt rеgulаrlу. There are mаnу ѕhаvеrѕ whеrе іt іѕ fine іn the bеgіnnіng, but the performance tapers оff as time gоеѕ оn.

The Brаun Sеrіеѕ 790сс dоеѕ nоt dо this at all. It continues tо сhug аlоng wіthоut trouble as lоng аѕ it is charged.

Thе ѕhаvіng еxреrіеnсе іѕ оnе оf thе reasons this is a wеll-tаlkеd about shaver, аnd іt bеgіnѕ tо ѕhоw. The hаіr mіght be rоugh and all оvеr thе рlасе, but thіѕ ѕhаvеr rеfuѕеѕ tо tug аnd cause irritation. It glіdеѕ асrоѕѕ thе ѕurfасе аnd реrfоrmѕ аѕ dеѕіrеd.

Clеаnіng аnd mаіntеnаnсе

Onе оf thе thіngѕ уоu саn do to еnѕurе a quality ѕhаvе and tо mаіntаіn your rаzоr іn tор ѕhаре іѕ to рrореrlу clean іt аftеr every uѕе.

You саn either mаnuаllу сlеаn it оr uѕе thе аutоmаtіс cleaning station.

Mаnuаl сlеаnіng

Wіth thе ѕhаvеr switched оn, thе ѕhаvіng hеаd саn bе rіnѕеd dіrесtlу under runnіng tар water. For a more еffесtіvе сlеаnіng, іt іѕ recommended tо uѕе ѕоmе lіԛuіd ѕоар.

Anоthеr орtіоn іѕ tо use thе іnсludеd bruѕh tо сlеаn thе іnnеr аrеа of thе head. In order tо dо thаt, уоu must remove the fоіl аnd сuttеrѕ аѕѕеmblу. Yоu ѕhоuld not uѕе the bruѕh for cleaning thе foil аnd cutters as they саn easily be dаmаgеd.

Hоwеvеr, Brаun ѕhаvеrѕ аrе nоtоrіоuѕlу mоrе dіffісult tо сlаn mаnuаllу duе tо thе dеѕіgn of thе ѕhаvіng head, called a cassette.

Thе саѕѕеttе integrates thе blаdеѕ and thе fоіlѕ іntо a ѕіnglе ріесе аnd thеу cannot bе ѕераrаtеd. Aѕ a rеѕult, getting аll thе dirt and hair сlірріngѕ out іѕ fіddlу аnd tаkеѕ more tіmе.

Luckily, thе 790cc соmеѕ with аn аutоmаtіс cleaning аnd сhаrgіng ѕtаtіоn.

Thе drying рhаѕе is completely silent as the ѕtаtіоn uѕеѕ іnduсtіоn hеаt to drу thе ѕhаvіng head. With thе Sеrіеѕ 9 for еxаmрlе, Brаun decided tо use a fаn (whісh takes lоngеr аnd аlѕо mаkеѕ ѕоmе noise).

Thеrе is аlѕо thе FаѕtClеаn fеаturе (25 seconds) thаt оnlу cleans thе rаzоr without drуіng іt.

Top 3 Best Electric Shavers for Men – Detailed Review For Each

Best Electric Shavers for MenHow often do you trim your beard? Do you find it exhausting?
If so, then perhaps you are using the wrong shaver.

The shaver you use to trim your beard every morning determines not only the experience but also appearance.

A good shaver should be easy and even enjoyable to use and should leave a clean and smooth cut. Here is a guide with the best mens electric shavers that fit this profile.

Our Top Selection: Braun Series 7 Electric Shaver

The Braun Series 7 comes in first thanks to its exceptional power and speed as well as advanced shaving technology. Some of its most notable features include:

Precision Head

The shaving head on the Braun Series 7 utilizes several technologies to ensure a clean and smooth shave.

For starters, it can shift to 8 angles and directions to conform to your face’s contour thus allowing you to reach every inch.

Secondly it has an active-lift technology that helps you reach and trim flat-lying hairs for a close shave.

4 Shaving Elements

The Braun Series 7 has 3 sets of cutting elements to ensure a close and smooth shave.
The fourth element is the skin guard which prevents scratching on the skin for a comfortable shaving experience.

Autosense and Intelligent Sonic Technology

The Braun Series 7 generates up to 10,000 micro-vibrations when shaving to ensure a clean and smooth cut – this is done by helping loosen entangled and flat hairs.

It also has built-in sensors that monitor a beard’s density and automatically adjust power and shaving speeds for an even shave.

5-Turbo Shaving Mode

The Braun Series 7 allows you to set five personalized shaving modes with varying power and speed, among other features.

You can toggle among the different shaving modes with the push of a button for a personalized shaving experience.

Battery Life

It takes just 1 hour to charge the Braun Series 7 to full capacity. The shaver is capable of delivering up to 50 minutes of cordless shaving.

Accessories

  • Charging Cord
  • Charging stand
  • Premium charging display
  • Cleaning station
  • Lubricant and cleaning tools
Pros
  • It is waterproof and can be cleaned using running water.
  • It comes with an automatic charging and cleaning station that utilizes alcoholic detergents for optimal hygiene.
  • This shaver is gentle on the skin and yet ensures a closer and smoother shave than most other shavers.
  • It is quick to charge and easily portable.
Cons
  •  The only noteworthy shortcoming of the Braun Series 7 is that it does not store power for as long as expected considering all its powerful features.

Our Verdict

The Braun Series 7 sells for $239.99 on Amazon. The price tag is bigger than most but it is justified by its numerous advanced shaving features.

To this end, it is safe to say that it is worth the cost. To this end, the Braun Series 7 has a ranking of 5 out of 5 considering everything that it brings to the tabled as compared to other shavers on the list.

Alternative Models

The Braun Series 7 is guaranteed to meet all your shaving needs, but should you need an alternative then you should consider the Braun Series 9.

It is the best shaver in the series and features greater shaving power and up to 10,000 times faster shaving speeds. It also comes with an advanced cleaning and drying system.

Our Second Selection: Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor

The Panasonic Arc5 electric razor is designed with convenience and comfort in mind. Its most notable features include:

Hyper-Performance Linear Motor: The Panasonic Arc5 is fitted with Panasonic’s fastest linear motor capable of delivering up to 14,000 cuts per minute.

This means that you can shave faster and more efficiently.

Built-In Sensors: This shaver also comes with built-in sensors that measure your beard’s density.

The sensors detect changes in your beard’s density while you shave and adjust shaving speed and power for an even cut and smooth shaving experience.

Multi-Flex Pivoting: In addition to sensors, the Panasonic Arc5 also utilizes multi-flex pivoting technology in the shaver head. The head assumes different position as you shave to adjust to the contours around your chin, neck, and cheeks for an even cut.

The shaving foil is also flexible enough to conform to sharp contours for an even closer shave.

Wet and Dry Shaving: The Panasonic Arc5 electric shaver allows you to shave dry at your sink or wet in the shower without any hitch.

You can also shave without cream or foam when using its waterproof electric razor. Combined, and taking into consideration its long battery life, both features make this electric shaver ideal for travelling.

Batter Life: The Panasonic Arc5 comes equipped with a lithium-ion battery capable of storing power for up to 45 minutes – this is enough to shave for two weeks without recharging.

It takes 1 hour to fully charge the battery on a 100v or 240v AC power source.

Accessories

The Panasonic Arc5 comes with the following accessories:

  • Charging cord
  • Charging stand
  • Cleaning tools
  • Lubricant
  • Pop-up trimmer
  • 10-stage LCD monitor

The Panasonic Arc5 is also compatible with accessories from other Panasonic models including the WES9032P, WES9173P, WES9170P models.

Pros
  • Faster shaving speeds.
  • Smooth and close cuts thanks to sensors and multi-flex pivoting technology.
  • Wet and dry shaving capabilities.
  • Long battery life.
Cons
  • It takes long to fully charge the battery.
  • The beard and moustache trimmers are not effective as they are blocked by the shaving head.

Verdict

The Panasonic Arc5 shaver sells for $99.99 on Amazon. Considering that it offers the best technology that Panasonic has to offer, and going by the prices of competing models,

it is safe to say that this shaver is worth every penny. It rates 4 out of 5 when compared to other shavers in its category.

Alternative Models

The ideal alternative to the Panasonic Arc5 is the Panasonic Arc4 models. They spot all the features of the Arc5 model except for the in-built shaving sensors. They are also cheaper.

Our Third Selection: Philips Norelco Shaver 4500

The Philips Norelco 4500 comes in a close third. It is fast, powerful and versatile. Some of its most notable features are:

Dual-Precision Shaving System: The Philips Norelco 4500 employs a dual-precision shaving system to ensure an even and super-clean cut.

Using this system, the shaver cuts short stubbles of hair after flattening long hairs. The clean shavers are soft and smooth to prevent scratches and other injuries.

Patented Super-Lift and Cut: The Philips Norelco 4500 goes beyond dual-precision shaving to ensure a clean cut.

It uses a patented super-lift and cut technology that lifts hair while shaving to cut under the skin for an overall smooth shave.

Dry and Wet Shaving: You can shave either dry at the sink or wet in the bath or shower using the Philips Norelco 4500 thanks to its Aqua Tec Seal.

You can even shave without cream or gel without having to worry about rashes and itching thanks to its gentle shaving foil.

Multi-Flex Pivoting: The multi-flex pivoting technology utilized in the Philips Norelco 4500 is designed to work in coordination with the dual-precision shaving system to ensure a clean, smooth, and even cut.

This technology makes the head flexible enough to shift positions and adjust to the contours in your face while shaving. This ensures that the blades get to every hair on your chin and face.

Pop-Up Trimmer: Finally, the Philips Norelco 4500 also features a pop-up trimmer that enables you to reach the moustache and sideburns for an overall clean and smooth shave.

Battery Life : The Philips Norelco 4500’s battery is capable of storing charge for up to 50 minutes but takes 8 hours for a full charge.

You can also get enough power for a single cordless shave with a 3-minutes charge.

Accessories

  • Charging stand
  • Charging cord
  • Cleaners
  • LED charge monitor
  • Pop-up trimmer
Pros
  • It ensures a smooth and close shave.
  • Quick, short charging times.
  • It comes with an LCD monitor that shows power levels.
  • It is easy to clean and maintain.
Cons
  • The only shortcoming of the Philips Norelco 4500 is that it takes too long to charge to full capacity – 8 hours is a long time compared to most other shavers.

Verdict

The Philips Norelco 4500 sells for $59.99 on Amazon. This is a fair price considering all the features it has to offer – it can even be argued that it is cheap.

It gets a weak rating of 4 out of 5 considering the features offered and price tag.

Alternatives

The ideal alternative to the Philips Norelco 4500 is its upgraded version, the Philips Norelco 5500. This model offers more shaving speed and power for quicker and cleaner shaves.

It also stores charges for longer compared to the 4500 model.

Complete Review of Norelco 4100 – Features & Alternatives

Norelco 4100 ReviewThe Norelco 4100 shaver is not the Cadillac of shavers but it is the one of the best in its class.

It is an awesome value for the price.The Norelco 4100 has great features and great performance.

The performance of the Norelco 4100 does not disappoint when trying to get a close shave for those men that shave every day or every other day.

The Norelco 4100 did have some performance issues when trying to shave thick beards.

Features of Norelco 4100

Dynamic contour response: The dynamic contour response allows the shaving heads to follow the natural curves of your face which results into a better shave than other shavers that lacked the dynamic contour response.

This contour response feature makes for an easier shave across the neck and jaw line areas; these areas can sometimes be problem areas to shave with other shavers and razors that lack this feature.

Super lift and cut: This feature actually uses two blades. The first blade lifts the facial hair while the second blade flows behind it and cuts the facial hair right at skin level

Dual precision heads: The dual precision head was designed to cut long and short hair. You don’t have to trim your beard with scissors before a shave.  

The dual precision heads will do it all for you which results in a close smooth shave. The slots in the shaving head allows you to cut the long beard hairs while the smaller holes in the shaver head allows for the shorter hair to be cut.

Pop up trimmer: The pop up trimmer is a great feature to trim your moustache or side burns. This eliminates the need for a smaller separate trimmer for this task.

Wet and dry shaving: This is a fantastic feature for men as myself that really enjoy a wet shave. In a pinch a quick dry shave will do the trick.

However, for those men than like a nice wet shave the Norelco 4100 delivers a great, smooth and close wet shave. The great thing is you can wet shave in the shower since the Norelco 4100 is waterproof.

Build quality and ergonomics: The Norelco 4100 is built with rubber and plastic materials. It is easy to grip and the light weight makes it a nice shaver to use. 

The Norelco 4100 was manufactured to last at least three years. However it is recommended to replace the shaving heads once a year.

Norelco 4100 Review

Battery life and charging:
The Norelco 4100 is equipped with a lithium-ion battery. With this type of battery if you forgot to unplug it after it was fully charged you will not damage the battery.

You also don’t have to fully discharge the battery before recharging it. The battery in the Norelco 4100 is fully charged after 60 minutes of charging.

A fully charged battery will give you 50 minutes of shaving time. That can equal out to about 17 days before you need to recharge your shaver.

There is an LED on the shaver which will indicate whether your shaver is fully charged or has a low charge. 

If you accidentally forgot to recharge your Norelco 4100 and need to shave; the quick charge feature is available.

Set the shaver to quick charge and in 3 minutes you will be able to unplug the shaver and give yourself a quick shave.

Since the Norelco 4100 is a dry and wet shaver it stands to reason that you cannot use the shaver while it is plugged in.

 This is a safety feature designed into the Norelco 4100 where you must unplug it before use.

Cleaning and maintenance: The Norelco 4100 is water proof so just open the shaving head and hold it under smooth running water to rinse the heads clean.

If you don’t want to rinse the heads just use the brush that came with the Norelco and brush the shavings out of the shaving head.

Norelco 4100Shaving performance: I enjoy a close shave and the Norelco 4100 delivered just that without any disappointment. This shaver does not give a razor burn when dry shaving with it. 

When wet shaving, (shaving with a gel) the Norelco 4100 delivered the same close shave as it does when dry shaving.

This shaver is also safe to wet shave in the shower.  The quietness of this shaver is amazing. You don’t have the loud buzzing of an electric shaver in your ear like you do with other shavers.

Included accessories The accessories included in the box with the Norelco 4100 are the standard accessories you receive with any electric shaver.  Since it is not middle class or high-end shave you do not get a travel pouch to put your shaver in or a charging dock station.

You can however find a suitable travel pouch and purchase it separately for your shaver. The following accessories are included with the purchase of the Norelco 4100

  • Norelco 4100 shaver
  • Charging cord
  • Protective cap
  • Cleaning brush

Replacement parts availability: It is recommended to replace the shaving head once a year. The part number for the shaving head is HQ8. They can be found on Amazon for about $29.

Wrap-up—who should buy it: Those men that shave regularly and do not want to spend the money on a high end shaver the Norelco 4100 may be right for you. This shaver performs exceptionally well whether you are dry or wet shaving

If you travel regularly the Norelco 4100 Shaver may be the perfect shaver for you. The quick charge feature will come in handy, especially when you do not have the available charging time during your travels.

If you do not have a thick or wiry beard this shaver might be the perfect shaver for you at a budget price. Men with thick beards may want to consider an alternate shaver such as the Braun Series 3 Shaver.

Advantages: This shaver is light weight which makes it easier to handle than other heavier shavers. Runs very quiet and it is easy to clean.

Disadvantages: Does not perform well with thick hair.

Alternative shavers 

Alternative Shaver # 1 : Panasonic ES8103S

Another alternate shaver in the same price range as the Norelco 4100 is the Panasonic ES8103S. The Panasonic ES8103S is also a foil head shaver.

It has some of the same features as the Norelco 4100. These same features include dry and wet shave, follows your facial contours, pop-up trimmer to trim beards and side burns, it is waterproof, cordless and also has a quick charge option.

The battery charging time for the Panasonic ES8103S is 45 minutes which is very comparable to the 50 minutes of charging time on the Norelco 4100.

The cleaning of the heads of the Panasonic ES8103S shaver is the same way the Braun Series 3 and the Norelco 4100, place the saver head under running water.

The performance of the Panasonic ES8103Sis also very comparable to the Norelco 4100 as it will deliver a comfortable close shave.

However you may have some issues with shaving the neck and jaw line as the Panasonic ES8103S lacks the contour features that the Norelco 4100 and the Braun Series 3 possess.

The accessories that accompany the Panasonic ES8103S are the shaver, charging cord, cap, and a pouch instead of a cleaning brush.

This alternate shaver maybe a good choice for someone wanting a travel pouch and not too worried about a small bit of trouble when trying to get a close shave on the neck or jawline.

Alternative Shaver # 2 : Norelco 4100

The ergonomics of this shaver is very similar to the Norelco 4100. The Braun Series 3 is also made of rubber, is lightweight and can be used in the shower as well.  

The Braun Series 3 also has a quick charge feature for those men that forget to recharge their shaver.

You can clean the heads on the Braun Series 3 shaver by opening the head and running water over the heads in the same way you would clean the Norelco 4100 shaver.

A positive thing in the performance of the Braun series 3 is it cut thru thick beards easier than the Norelco 4100 shaver. The Braun Series 3 shaver is also quiet and comparable in price when compared to the Norelco 4100 shaver.

A fully charge battery in the Braun Series 3 shaver will give you  45 minutes of shave time which is very comparable to the 50 minutes of shave time on the Norelco 4100 shaver.

Take the Panasonic ES LA93 K 4-Blade Wet/Dry cordless rechargeable electric shaver, featuring the patented Vortex Cleaning System.

It has definitely been a staple in the world of highly efficient, tremendously effective electric shavers for quite awhile now.

Whether he sports a meticulously trimmed beard, wears a carefully trimmed goatee, or shaves clean each and every morning, it equals out to about 1,092 hours, or 65,520 minutes of a man’s lifetime.

Most men  spends  that  much time in front of his bathroom mirror perfecting his own unique facial hair style.

For damn good reasons, too; it is awesomely loaded with innovative and pioneering features, all of which promise to deliver one of the closest shaves available outside the realm of twirling barber poles, hot towels and old-school straight razors.

Reviewing ES LA93 K : Advanced Technology

In fact, via advanced technology,  it promises to deliver the kind of close and comfortable shave most often associated with the common razor-and-shave gel/cream routine, all in less than half the time, a fraction of the effort and virtually zero of the mess involved in shaving the traditional way.

The combination of all these factors suggests a shaving experience that will be head and shoulders above the results you can expect from other, comparable electric razors in the same class as the Panasonic ES LA93 K.

Let us face the facts: it used to be really expensive. But the retail price of the Panasonic ES LA93 K electric razor has dropped dramatically in recent years, making it one of the most affordable cordless and rechargeable electric shavers of its kind.

ES-LA93-K Electric Cordless Shaver Advantage

This razor features the Multi-Flex Pivoting Head, which can pivot in four directions: left to right, and back and forth.

This technology improves the razor heads ability to closely follow the contours of your face, particularly in areas like the chin, the shelf of the jaw and other areas that can be problematic when shaving.

On the other hand, there is a switch on the back of the shaving head that locks it in place when it is precision that you are looking for.

The arched, 4 blade shaving system is crafted from hypoallergenic stainless steel, which makes experiencing the annoying symptoms of irritation much less likely. This 4 blade system is comprised of two main outer foils, in addition to one thin finishing foil and one slit foil, designed for cutting longer hairs. All four of these blades are actually able to move independently of one another.

Very close (but also comfortable) shaves.

Superior at cutting coarse hair and providing incredibly fast shave times. This is because the Panasonic ES-LA93-K just happens to boast a 14,000 CPM motor, which is one of the most powerful motors you can find on any cordless electric shaver.  

Quick shaving times Specifically reduces the amount of pressure needed to apply while shaving, as well as the likelihood of razor burn and other skin irritations. This is due to the second, vibrating motor inside the shaving head, which lifts stubborn hairs away from the skin before cutting them, thus saving your skin from the usual contact pressure involved in shaving.

The Vortex Cleaning System. This is crazy innovative, and even more convenient. It is an all-in-one cleaning and charging station dock, which uses Panasonic shaver cleaning solution, a water-based, alcohol-free cleanser that is the standard for all Panasonic shaver devices.

Powerful motor and Other great features include wet or dry shaving capabilities, a fully washable unit, a quick charge option (for when you forgot to dock your shaver like the responsible adult you’re supposed to be), a lock button to prevent accidental switch-ons, a 10 stage battery indicator on the LCD display and a pop-up trimmer.

Ergonomic, comfortable, and natural grip feel, with a weight that suggests quality craftsmanship without being too heavy.

Foil, blades and cleaning cartridges do not need frequent replacements.

Attractive glossy-black finish meshes well with the blue-light LCD display, creating a handsome and classic look.

  • Inexpensive cleaning cartridges.
  • Quiet operation.

Disadvantage Of Panasonic ES LA93 K

The four-bladed shaving head is not ideal for sensitive skin. It can be slightly overzealous in its performance, and many individuals with sensitive skin have been unable to use this razor.

The unit cannot be used while it is charging. In other words, no cord can be plugged into the shaver, allowing for use if (or when) you have forgotten to replace the shaver onto the cleaning base/station/dock to charge. However, this is a common safety precaution for wet/dry electric razors.

The four-bladed shaving head is especially large and a bit bulky.Panasonic ES LA93 K 4-Blade

You will probably need to adjust to using it.

The station/dock is pretty large, and takes up quite a bit of space.

Some users have reported that the station can leak cleaning fluid.

Using the Cleaning Station can be time-consuming.

The Cleaning Station is rather noisy.

Can cause flare-ups in individuals who are prone to ingrown hairs or razor bumps.

The blue lights on the display blink, which some may consider annoying or downright intolerable.

Charge Time and Battery Life

Charging the Panasonic ES LA93 K fully takes about sixty minutes. A full charge should provide about forty-five total minutes of use.  

The LED display has a blue-light, ten stage battery indicator, which will also tell you things like when it is time to clean the unit, how long your most recent shaving session took, and the total charging status of the unit.

You can leave the unit in the charging station even after it is fully charged, because it boasts an Li-Ion battery, which cannot be overcharged.

However, if you do so, a blue light will blink constantly from then until the unit is used again, or removed from the charging station.

Some users have reporting this rapid blinking to be distracting, annoying or even unbearable, particularly in a dark room.

 

The unit comes with a charging cable that can be plugged directly into the shaver and then into the wall, eliminating the need to bring the large and bulky charging and cleaning station with you when traveling.

However, once more, the unit will not operate when plugged directly into the wall. This is an important safety feature of wet/dry electric shavers. Never trust one that bypasses this important safety feature.

The Panasonic ES LA93 K features an Automatic Voltage Converter. This means that you can charge the shaver, no matter what, wherever you go in the world (with the exception of camping deep in the wilds of virgin forests, where there are a woeful lack of electrical outlets).

Cleaning and Maintenance

Method 1: Manual Cleaning

This shaver is fully washable, so you can wash it under running water. It is advised that you use liquid hand soap and water on the outer foil.

Then you activate the Panasonic ES LA93 K’s ‘Sonic Vibrating Cleaning Mode’ by holding the on/off button for two seconds, whereupon you will see an indication of engagement in the display window.

You will probably also notice that the motor has started to run at a higher pitch. It will finish in about twenty seconds. At that time, the outer foil is removed and rinsed under a running faucet. Then you engage turbo mode again.  

When finished, shake off the excess water as much as possible, and let the unit air dry completely.  

The manual cleaning method is quick, simple and easy, and is a perfectly acceptable method for cleaning your Panasonic ES LA93 K electric cordless shaver unit.

Method 2: The Automatic Vortex Cleaning System

AKA: The Better Way To Do It

It seriously does not get any easier than this method. You fill up the water container. You make sure that a cleaning cartridge is in place inside the station. You make sure that the shaver unit is in place, on the station.

 You select ‘clean’ (unless you are wanting to dry it; then you select ‘dry’). Then you simply wait. The shaver unit automatically charges during either one of these processes. Wham, bam, thank you, Panasonic!

The station is unbelievably effective, and unbelievably quick. The entire cleaning process takes about ten minutes.  Additionally, the cleaning solution has the added benefit of also lubricating the shaver head blades, so there is never any need to do that if you use this method to clean your Panasonic ES LA93 K electric shaver.

On the other hand, when the station is engaged in drying mode, it can take up to three hours to finish the cycle, and the inside fans used to accomplish this feat can seem pretty noisy.

Conclusion

The Panasonic ES LA93 K electric cordless shaver is a very high quality, efficient, and convenient electric shaver option, at a very reasonable price.

It is worth noting that you can go big and fully automated, by choosing to utilize the included cleaning/charging station for both of its intended purposes, or you can simplify things by using the manual cleaning option.

Plugging the charging cable directly into the unit when it is in need of a charge. Or, you can use a combination of both these approaches, making this rechargeable electric cordless shaver one of the most versatile options currently on the market.

Best Beard Trimmers – Top 5 Trimmers For Mens 2018

Men these days are versatile in the way they present their faces. It’s no longer considered “scruffy” to maintain an unshaven look—as long as it’s not too scruffy looking. And beards are definitely in nowadays.

That’s where a solid beard trimmer comes in. You want one that doesn’t require a lot of work, and one that chops the scruff on just a few passes. A good beard trimmer is versatile, simple to use, and precise.
Of course, men have lots of different types of beards, and luckily, there are numerous beard trimmers on the market to accommodate. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing a beard trimmer:

  • Is it corded or cordless?
  • What kind of attachments does it have?
  • Is it waterproof?
  • How versatile is the beard trimmer?
  • Is it nicely priced or too expensive?

Five Top-Rated Beard Trimmers

Wahl Lithium Ion Plus

Best Features: Comes with precise attachments for trimming beards and nose hair and ear hair. Has an assortment of 12 combs for varied hair length and styles.

If you like attachments and a versatile beard trimmer, the Wahl Lithium Ion Plus is for you. Along with being very reliable, this precise beard trimmer, which is used by professionals, has 12 combs for varied hair styles and lengths. It’s cordless, portable, and has a travel plug that prevents the device from powering on if the button is accidentally pushed in.

If you’re a neat freak, this might not be your beard trimmer. Cleaning it takes a bit of time, and you’ll need to use the brush that’s included. Plus all the attachments it comes with may seem overwhelming. Also, watch how much water this shaver is exposed to, as it can rust over time.

Techies will appreciate the high-tech lithium-ion design of this beard trimmer, which offers a hefty four hours of run time. Plus, the shaver’s patented blade design offers unmatched preciseness after a few passes. The dual-voltage beard trimmer has self-sharpening blades for beards, mustaches, cuts to the hair, touchups on the body and can handle nose and ear areas.

Philips Norelco OneBlade Face & Body Hybrid

Norelco’s OneBlade Face & Body shaver has an assortment of customizable attachments designed for different areas of the body, including beards. Its two blades are specially designed for both the face and body, and they can be used wet or dry.

It has a body comb, four stubble combs, and a skin guard for those sensitive areas. A cordless trimmer, the OneBlade will last an hour on a single lithium-ion charge and has replaceable blades that can be replaced on a quarterly basis. This razor is made for all types of faces, with a dual-sided blade that follows all contours and shouldn’t cause razor burns or cuts.

There’s a comfort factor to the OneBlade as it doesn’t cut hair in an overly close way. Its included skin guard offers extra protection for areas that might be sensitive.

It doesn’t have lots of attachments but does include a guard, a cleaning brush, and four combs.

Despite its lack of attachments, this is a professional-grade, precise-cutting beard trimmer for those seeking as much. Don’t be fooled by its small size, as the Wahl Peanut packs the same power as a full-size razor, giving it highly ranked marks by reviewers.

Pros
Portable

lightweight

Nonbulky

Economical

Philips Norelco 7200

Mentioning a built-in vacuum on a razor may sound like a futuristic dream, but that’s a top function of the Philips Norelco 7200 beard trimmer. What does it do? Well, thanks to a high-velocity motor and fan within it.

The Norelco 7200 sucks up the majority of hair that it clips—apparently 90 percent of it—to make the clean-up process much easier. No one likes running wet toilet paper over the sink to collect all those annoying clippings.

Beyond its vacuum, the wireless Norelco 7200 has two detail comb attachments and a beard comb. Combing lengths can be adjusted in 0.5 increments for ultra-precise trimming. The cutting-edge (no pun intended) beard trimmer has self-sharpening steel blades that cut precisely but won’t irritate skin.

After one hour of charging, this razor will last up to 80 minutes, and it can be used while charging. Its lift-and-cut technology means fewer strokes are needed on the face, and the trimmer provides a precise and comfortable shave, as well as an overall even trim on beards.

That’s thanks to the 13 pieces it comes with that covers all grooming needs. You’ve got items for stubble and beard maintenance, an outstanding trimmer that places lines on the face exactly as shavers want them, and parts that will handle hair in the nose and ears.

Secondly, for all that the Norelco Multi Groomer does, how can you argue with the price? This multitasking trimmer has sharp steel blades that stay sharp on their own without rusting, and this razor has DualCut technology for clean shaves all around. No oil is needed to maintain the blades, and the lithium-ion battery will stay charged for one hour.

Parts/accessories include: three hair-trimming guards, three beard-trimming guards, a cleaning brush, and an accessory storage bag.

Built to last with parts that can be rinsed

Comes with numerous accessories for all shaving needs

Extremely economical

Best Beard Trimmers Beyond the Top Five

Remington PG6170 – The Crafter Beard Boss Style and Detail Kit with Titanium-coated Blades

This beautifully made razor features titanium-coated blades that will last and last. The premium copper finish on the razor itself lends a super-classy touch, and the 180-minute run time on lithium-ion power is also impressive. Also, if you’re in a hurry to shave but the battery is powering out, don’t worry—a 5-minute charging time will get you back on schedule. Afterward, the PG6170 cleans up in a jiffy and won’t leave a mess.

It’s a totally waterproof trimmer, so take it with you in the shower if needed. The shaver’s “turbo mode” cuts through thick hair with ease, and the wide range of accessories in the detail kit allow for styling goatees, trimming mustaches, and downsizing beards. With a clip-on adjustable comb included, you have the option of nine trim lengths for lots of versatility. Definitely a great razor for men who care about their appearance.

Braun BT3020 Beard Trimmer

The Braun brand is widely respected, and the company’s BT3020 Beard Trimmer is a fine example as to why that is. This device will make quick work of the thickest of beards and won’t tug or pull. It’s ready to go straight out of the box and easy to wash under running faucet water.

Additionally, its combs are simple to attach and remove, and the trimmer’s height adjuster has 20 length-setting options, allowing for the most precise of cuts—users will tell you that even 0.5 millimeters makes a difference when shaving.

Lightweight, quiet, and easy to handle, the BT3020 expertly manages short and medium beards as well as stubble like a pro thanks to durable stainless steel blades. With a 40-minute running time it’s not the longest-running cordless shaver on the market by any stretch, but that’s not a huge deal in the grand scheme. This is still a topnotch razor.

Panasonic Precision + Power Beard Trimmer with Linear Motor Technology

You might remember Panasonic as being associated with making cool radios back in the day, but now the company is creating razors, too, and it’s doing a great job. This particular trimmer even won a GQ Grooming Award, so it’s worth checking out.

What’s noticeable right away about the blades on this device is that they’re wider and rounded, specifically for chopping through thick, crazy-looking hair. That being said, with 19 shave settings to choose from, this is an ideal trimmer for simply cutting off the stubble or refining it.

Shavers will love the ergonomic grip of the handle, which has rubber on it for easy maneuverability. This also allows for shaving that is comfortable and consistent the whole way through.

The coolest news about this trimmer has been saved for last. This razor boasts Panasonic’s fastest-trimming motor, so from super-quick trim-ups to deeper shaves in which you’re lingering in front of the mirror, the Panasonic Precision + Power device will always deliver smooth, even, and consistent results.

BeardScape Beard and Hair Trimmer by Brio

Known as one of the quietest beard trimmers on the market, the BeardScape Beard and Hair Trimmer from the lesser-known brand Brio is one cool shaving option. It doesn’t necessarily specialize in handling any sort of beard, so whether it’s minor stubble in the morning or an unruly beard that was grown on a bad bet, this trimmer will keep you satisfied.

This compact shaver has five speed settings and length guards of 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 millimeters. You can charge it on the included base for an extremely long running time—four hours, to be exact—or plug it in and shave away. What we find coolest about this Brio beast is its super-quiet sound and low-friction ceramic blade. This blade, mind you, is four times sturdier than stainless steel. That’s pretty darn durable.

Braun BT304 Beard Trimmer

The weight of a beard trimmer can sometimes be a factor that’s not talked about enough. This one, for instance, is very lightweight, which lots of guys will appreciate. Because of its feathery touch, the modern-looking BT304 is very versatile and easy to shave with. The dial in front allows for the super-simple setting of close to 40 beard-trimming lengths.

This might not be the razor a professional actor would use, but for those who want to yank it out from time to time to keep the stubble, goatee, or beard in control, this is a solid option. It’s great how you can run the whole device under water to clean it right up, and the blades on this baby are surprisingly sharp and accurate.

A few other great features include the included two combs and a Flexball Razor made by Gillette. Runs for one hour on an 8-hour charge.

Remington HC5855 Virtually Indestructible Haircut & Beard Trimmer

Virtually indestructible? That’s what Remington claims this yellow-bellied, beefy-looking razor is. Actually, don’t let the tough talk fool you. The HC5855 has a rubber grip and is easy to hold and maneuver in your hand. It handles the off angles of your face with a precise touch, and the ergonomic design makes it a swifter razor than what its image conveys.

At just over $20, this razor is a great bargain. It comes with a 15-piece kit with pieces that cut, style, and protect. The durable trimmer has a few different types of combs and a handy storage bag for convenience and protection.

Here are more great features: a power-cut blade system that won’t snag or pull hair and skin; a super magnet torque motor offers twice the cutting speed; expertly grounded blades handle any type of hair; an industrial-length 8-foot cord for giving haircuts; and polycarbonate casing for protecting the powerful interior—that’s where the “virtually indestructible” aspect of the razor comes in.

Conair Beard & Mustache Electric Trimmer

Guess what? Great beard trimmers don’t have to cost $100 or more. This one is under $20, and some say it’s the best one they’ve every owned—even better than more expensive brands. It’s corded, quick, and cleans easily. This basic trimmer is red and has a stylish look. Its two jawline combs are great for detailing, and the 5-position adjustable comb offers a little versatility. The stainless steel blade is removable and won’t cut, nick, or pull. A great option if you’re looking to save some dough.

Remington PG6171 – The Crafter

A closely aligned brother to Remington’s above-mentioned PG6170, the PG 6171, known as The Crafter, has its own great qualities. Namely, it’s quiet, it cuts well, and has numerous attachments for the choosiest of shavers. Many like how this razor is able to get into those hard-to-access areas of the face we all have. In addition, and speaking of those hard-to-reach areas, the PG6172 comes with an ear/nose attachment that works splendidly.

 

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor 3-in-1 Body Groomer and Beard Trimmer

If life finds you on the road constantly for work, this fusion-model razor kit might be a good option. That’s because it contains both a razor and a trimmer/groomer, which means you won’t forget one or the other during the packing process. The trimmer doesn’t charge but does operate on a battery, so again, road-savvy travelers won’t have to worry about remembering to pack the charger. The kit comes with three combs, advanced blades, a battery, and a handy-dandy organizer. At a mere $25 or so, this 3-in-1 option is a steal.

Panasonic ER-GB80-S Body Hair and Beard Trimmer

Shavers will notice right away on Panasonic’s trimmer the adjustable dial in front that allows for an astounding 39 cut lengths. This makes adjusting settings from one area of the face or body to another extremely easy, and, best of all, users won’t need to change out the attachments and guards while messing with the trim length. It can run on electricity or as a cordless for added portability. Its detailed settings and slide-up, 45-degree trimmer will finely formulate beards, sideburns, and hairlines if needed. A great choice for those who truly care about their appearance.

Suprent EF-375 Beard Trimmer Kit

Thanks to specialized 420-grade stainless steel blades that both move and don’t move, the Suprent EF-375 Beard Trimmer leaves hair soft and whiskers neat. It has a mustache and nose-hair trimmer, alternative heads, a charging dock, and durable guards. At 1.38 pounds, the Suprent is lightweight and swift. Its power peters out at around 20 percent, so be sure to keep it properly charged.

Wahl 9818 Stainless Steel Beard Trimmer

Sure, it’s on the pricey side, but this beard trimmer, made by a company that many consider the best in the business when it comes to shavers, is worth it. This nice-looking trimmer has tons of add-ons and four heads that can interchange for outstanding versatility. Little maintenance is necessary with the self-sharpening blades except for a little oil from time to time. The 9818 offers a precise shave, charges fast, and has a long-lasting battery.

 

Sminiker Professional Waterproof Beard Trimmer Set

It may not be a household name, but Stinker makes good trimmers, and this one is a prime example. This heavy-duty razor handles large, fluffy beards with ease thanks to its powerful motor. It has a whole bunch of attachments and add-ons for supreme versatility, and that includes a nose and ear trimmer. The price point isn’t bad at all for such a topnotch razor, though be warned that the battery life on this razor is poor. The included dock is highly functional and has everything you need, and to top it off, this waterproof set comes with a two-year warranty.

 

Be Good to Your Beard With Right Trimmer

In conclusion, though there are many, many beard trimmers on the market, shopping for the right one that works for your face is actually kind of fun. Know that all the available choices will give you numerous shaving options, and it’s easy to do online research on any beard trimmer that catches your eye. Before making a purchase, think of past razors you’ve used and how they’ve made you feel. Do you like a weighted, hefty razor or one you can lightly glide across your face? Is battery power important to you or are you fine with plugging the device in? Also think about price, the clean-up process when shaving, and long-term durability. With all the beard-trimming razors on today’s market, you are bound to find the perfect one for your grooming needs. Good luck!
