Product Description

With Arc 3 three-blade shaving technology, a flexible pivoting head, smart foils, and a fast motor, the Panasonic ES-LT71-S delivers a high-performance, comfortable shave – whenever, wherever.

High-Tech Coverage

The Arc 3 shaving system features three blades for maximum coverage and closeness, even on the most difficult parts of your beard. Its nano-polished, stainless-steel hypoallergenic blades are tuned to a 30-degree angle to cut hair at its base for ultimate precision.

Flexible for Maximum Comfort

The flexible pivoting head allows the shaver to float effortlessly along the contours of your face for a fast shave, especially around your sideburns and the area under your chin. The fast, linear motor eliminates the tugging and pulling that can occur with slower shavers.

Automatic Clean

When the ES-LT71-S needs recharging, simply insert the shaver into the automatic cleaning and charging system for a clean, renewed shave.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between wet and dry shaving?

Wet shaving involves the use of your choice of shaving lather, whereas a dry shave is done without lather for a quick clean-up anywhere. For a wet shave at home or a quick, dry shave on-the-go, the ES-LT71-S will provide you with the same smooth, clean, yet gentle shave that you need.

Is the ES-LT71-S waterproof?

Yes, the ES-LT71-S is watertight and can be immersed in water without damage. It is safe to use in the shower and is cleaned by rinsing the shaver under running water.

I'm new to electric shavers. Is skin irritation after use common?

Your Panasonic wet/dry shaver requires a little time to get used to because your skin and beard need about a month to adjust to any new shaving method. Treat yourself to wet lather shaves for at least three weeks and notice the difference.

The product itself is of pretty high quality, the cleaning system works great (though the included cleaning product smells exactly like Gak, seriously), I love the travel lock mode, and shaving when I've shaved within the past day or two works just great.

The problem I have is that I don't shave every day, and if I go 3 or 4 days between shaves the razor REALLY has issues and pulls on hairs a lot when shaving. With my previous electric razors I would simply use the built-in trimmer first to shorten the hairs and then switch to the main shaving mode to finish the job, which worked fine for me.

The trimmer on this razor is so poor that it really isn't an option. If your facial hair has grown to more than a couple of millimeters then the trimmer pulls your hair at the edges. Even with that, the trimmer is very ineffective at trimming any hairs, including sideburns. Also, the width of the trimmer is only about maybe 1 inch so it takes much longer to do standard trimming.

I've tried skipping the trimmer altogether, but the main shaving mode just pulls too much hair and causes too many annoying little pains.

Again, if you never go more than a day or two without shaving, or your facial hair grows slower, this is a great razor. It's just not great for me and my shaving habits.

After the battery of my Brown 8595 started to fail after 10 years I was in the market for a new electric shaver. I wanted a washable razor, which now almost all seem to be. I tried the Philips Norelco 1150x/40 SensoTouch 2d Electric Shaver, Metallic Blue, the Panasonic ES-LA63-S Men's 4-Blade (Arc 4) Multi-Flex Dual-Motor Wet/Dry Rechargeable Electric Shaver with Nanotech Blades, Silver, the Panasonic ES-LT71-S Men's 3-Blade(Arc 3) Wet/Dry Nanotech Rechargeable Electric Shaver with Vortex Cleaning System, Silver and the Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System, Silver.
The Norelco had by far the roughest and least close shave for me. Maybe it works well for some beards and longer hair, but it didn't for me.
I really wanted to like the new Braun shaver. I had been very happy with my old Braun, the only downside for me being its tedious cleaning: one couldn't use water, had to use a brush or the Braun cleaning system, but their alcohol based solution evaporates rather quickly. I only used it about once every 2 weeks and closed the container again, it then would last 6 months. The new Braun can be washed with water and soap like all the other new shavers. I was disappointed though that the Braun 790 didn't seem to shave quite as close as my old Braun.

Since there are so many reviews, I will focus on what I have not seen in other reviews and what I believe is the biggest design flaw in this product. The shaver is fine, and I have no problems with it. But if you're buying this unit, it's probably because you want the cleaning system, too, so be aware...

This purchase replaced an older Panasonic model where the razor was held in place by snapping into a piece that came over the top of the razor and cleaner. I never had any problems with this setup, but Panasonic decided to make it simpler, by having a system where you just drop the razor in the cleaner, the razor leans *slightly* back, and cleaning starts at the press the button. The problem with this is that without something holding the razor in place, it easily slips.

As the razor cleans itself, the cleaner activates the razors blades to shake off debris. Unfortunately, while doing this, the razor very subtly moves itself out of place from the 3 metal contacts that it uses to charge and connect to the cleaner. As it cleans, it goes through cycles of turning the blades on and off as it pumps water through, but since it loses contact, it will stop vibrating before it is supposed to and the razor doesn't get fully cleaned -- or charged!

I've "fixed" this by putting small items under the front of the cleaning system to make the razor lean back far enough so it can't shake itself out of place, but this is a ridiculous fix. I've used it for six months and there is no "breaking in" period after which this works better.

Works Great, Never had any problems. My skin is sensitive and I never had one break out . The best way to use it is in the shower with gel if you want the closest shave. It's as close to using a straight razor you can get. I love mine and I'm pretty sure you will too. The cleaning system is great, i don't always use the cleaning cycle but i do always use the dry cycle to get the water off the blades after every use. If you do that it will also help the life of your blades. I would run your cleaning cycle once a week. Hope it helps Good Luck
