Philips Norelco Star Wars Special Edition Shaver SW6700 Features 

The Special edition Star Wars Poe Norelco SW6700/91 and SW6700/14 models are a bit Superior to the regular Norelco shaver 6700. The Special edition shavers feature a V-track PRO shaving system, while the regular version uses a Gyroflex 2D system.

Although the DualPrecision heads on the regular S6700 model still achieve a smooth shave, the 72 self-sharpening blades on the Special edition models offer unmatched closeness. Comparatively, the Philips Norelco Star Wars Special edition SW6700 shavers have a lot more to offer, including: 

8-Direction ContourDetect Heads

As opposed to the GyroFlex 2D system used in the regular Norelco shaver 6700 model, the Star Wars Special Edition SW6700 models use ContourDetect heads. Each of the heads in the ContourDetect shaving unit flexes independently in 8 different directions. 

As such, they are known to follow facial contours as close as possible, even in the hard-to-reach parts of the face. Again, this technology allows the shaver to catch about 20% more hair than the regular S6700 shaver would in a single pass. 

V-track Precision PRO System 

Despite being more affordable, the SW6700/91 model uses the V-track Precision PRO shaving system found in the high-end Philips Norelco shaver models. As compared to the DualPrecision blades used on the regular Norelco shaver 6700, the V-track Precision PRO system is more efficient. 

The V-track Precision PRO system features 72 rotating blades that will capture and cut hairs from all angles. Delivering 151,000 cuts per minute, the system cuts facial hair about 30% closer to the skin and is more efficient in shaving dense beards. 

With such a system, you will achieve exceptional closeness in just a few strokes. Again, the blades are self-sharpening to offer you a thorough shaving experience every time you use the shaver. 

Turbo+ Mode

Philips Norelco Star Wars Special Edition 6700 series shavers are equipped with a Turbo+ button. Activating this mode will offer you a 20% power boost for a swift, yet close and comfortable shave—even on dense beards. This mode will come in handy whenever you are in a hurry. 

Aquatec Wet/Dry Shave 

Choose how you would like to shave with the Philips Norelco SW6700/91. It features the Aquatec Wet and Dry seal which makes it usable under the shower. Additionally, this technology implies that the shaver may be used for dry as well as Wet shaves with foam or gel. 

With such a shaver, you will find dry shaves to be comfortable and the wet shaves to be a lot more refreshing. In either case, you will achieve an exceptional level of closeness. 


Battery Performance 

Both the SW6700/91 and the SW6700/14 shaver models come with a reliable Lithium-Ion battery. In both cases, the rechargeable battery requires an hour to charge to capacity. Once fully charged, the battery will offer you about 60-minutes worth of cordless shaving. 

This is equivalent to about 20 shaves before the battery is depleted. The unit also has a quick-charge functionality; when the battery is depleted, you can charge it for just five minutes. This offers enough charge for a single 5-minute shave. 

Thereafter, you should charge the battery to capacity in order to maintain its efficiency. Again, you should never use the shaver with the charging cord connected; it is exclusively designed for cordless use. 

Click-on Trimmer 

Just like some of the best Philips Norelco Shavers, the Star Wars Special Edition 6700/14 model comes with a Click-on trimmer as an accessory. You can use this trimmer to maintain your mustache and trim the sideburns to your preferred style. 

Display

Replacement Reminder 

For maximum shaving performance, you need to replace the shaving heads every year. The shaver is equipped with a replacement reminder which reminds you to replace the shaving heads. The replacement reminder lights up and the arrows flash to indicate that you need to replace the shaving heads. 

Cleaning Reminder 

 Just as is the case with other Philips Norelco Shavers, you need to clean your Star Wars Special Edition Shaver SW6700/91 shaver after every use.

If not cleaned, the cleaning reminder will light up on the display. This indicator will flash after the shaver has been switched off to remind you to clean the shaver.

Once locked, it will be impossible for the device to be powered on until the lock is removed. Once locked, the travel lock symbol will light up on the display whenever you try to operate the shaver. 

Blocked Shaving Head Indicator 

If the shaving heads are blocked, the notification symbol will flash, accompanied by a beep. If this happens, you need to clean the shaver thoroughly before trying to use it again.

If the notification symbol still flashed and the herbs go on after you have cleaned the unit, you should replace the shaving head unit. 

Overheating Indicator 

The Philips Norelco Shavers, the Star Wars Special Edition 6700/14 has an overheating indicator on its display as well. If the device happens to overheat during operation, this indicator will light up and the shaver will switch off automatically.

Personal Comfort Settings 

The shaver allows you to customize the shaving experience you get while using this shaver. It features three main speed settings, including Comfort, Dynamic and Efficiency modes. Choose the model that is best suited for your shaving needs, hair type, and skin sensitivity. 

To shift between the different comfort settings, follow the instructions illustrated on the Philips Star Wars Special Edition Shaver SW6700 manual. 

Washable 

Both the Norelco SW6700/14 and SW6700/91 models are washable under the tap, making them comparatively easy to clean. To clean the shaver, open the shaver head and rinse it thoroughly under running tap water. 

Final Verdict 

As compared to the regular Philips Norelco S6700, the Special edition models have more to offer. In addition to the visual appeal of the Star War theme shavers, the units are fitted with 8-direction Contour detect heads. 

These, coupled to the revolutionary V-track Precision PRO blade system allows for a closer shave—even in the hard-to-reach areas. Not only do the models have a convenient Turbo+ boost functionality, but they also feature three personal comfort settings.
