Great shave, pitty about the power supply!,
This review is from: Philips Norelco BG2022 Bodygroom, Limited Edition (Health and Beauty)
We'll I will say that I'm very happy with the shaver, it pretty much does what it says on the box.
As always if your going to shave down south your better dry off shaving and using plenty of baby powder to help the shaver head glide... The alternative is hacking away at your bits and tugging out chunks of fluff OUCH!
I give the shaver 9/10
(Soft as a babys'bum shave without too much hastle or chunks removed)
NOW.... The power supply!!!
Now if you buy a travel shaver and never intend to travel outside the US it's great...
HOWEVER!!! if you intend to go to anywhere that uses anything other then 120v @ 60htz then be prepared to buy a replacement charger!
I travel between Europe and Asia (mostly 240v) and fried my charger in about 10 minutes (Ahhh.. the smell of burning plastic).
Come on Philips!!!
To provide a voltage switchable charger as an alternative would cost no more then cents. Besides All of the competition in this market provide switchable chargers as standard (IT'S A TRAVEL SHAVER RIGHT).
Needles to say... I'm not impressed!!!
The charger gets a 1/10 and thats only becase it was in working condition when it arrived.
Great product, crap charger!
