The R9170 is the world's first shaver with Titanium coated cutters that stay sharper longer, for maximum closeness and comfort, shave after shave! The 9170 is rechargeable and cord/cordless, with titanium-coated inner cutters, ni-cd batteries with 40 minutes of run time, and rinses clean under running water. The shaver has ultra-flexing heads, an Easy-View pop-up trimmer, worldwide voltage, and charging and low-charge indicators.
Remington produced the worlds first electric shaver in 1937, and continues to be a leader in shaving technology. Titanium is the companys latest break-through. When coated with titanium, blades stay sharper longer than stainless steel for an extra close, comfortable shave. Ergonomically designed with no-slip insets, this model features three ultra-flexing round heads that float independently to hug face and neck contours. Moreover, the heads are ultra-thin, which allows the blades to get as close to the skin as possible. A nifty one-inch trimmer pops up to define sideburns, mustaches, and necklines. An added benefit of this razor is that it can be used either with the 5-foot stretch cord or without, and features quick charge. A one-hour quick charge provides 40 minutes of shaving time, while a five-minute charge is enough for one shave. This model features a green light that indicates the shaver is either charging or charged. A red low-battery light indicates approximately five minutes of shaving time remains. Cleaning this razor is a breeze--squeeze the release buttons to flip up the head attachment, then blow, brush, or rinse out any stubble. A cleaning brush is included, along with a zippered, padded carry pouch and protective head guard. The shaver automatically converts to other voltages worldwide, making it great for travel. Remington covers the shaver with a 30-day money-back guarantee, and a two-year warranty against defects.--Ann Bieri
