4.0 out of 5 stars Great Shave, Battery Life, August 6, 2009
This review is from: Philips Norelco 7810XL Men's Cutting System (Electronics)
What impresses me most about this shaver, as opposed to the Philips/Norelco shavers I've had before, is the battery life. The others were good, but I've gotten over 24 shaves from one charge (Caveat: I have what most people would call a "very light" beard- I need to shave or I look like a dork). I appreciate that it's quieter and lighter than past models, although admittedly at first it felt "cheaper." I can hear when the blades are cutting, indicating I need to keep at that spot, and when they're not, indicating that I can move on. I disagree with reviewers who miss the docking station- it's an unnecessary piece of clutter and landfill waste. As with other Norelco shavers I've found that they work best with a clean, dry, cool face. First thing when I get out of bed is usually fine, but sometimes a quick wash with cool water and then a few moments to dry completely is helpful, like if I'm in a hot climate. I think the charger could be more travel-friendly, that is, compact, but with this long battery life you'd need to be on the road for a long time to bother bringing it. I agree with other reviewers who wish a travel case had been included; I'll use my old one, but it should still come with one. And as for the cleaning brush, well, you should never need it. You should just dump the scraps in the trash and then give it a quick rinse, shake out the excess water and put it back in "its spot." It takes seconds and means it will always be clean the next time you use it. The only other thing to comment upon is that it would be better to have a meter indicating remaining battery life instead of just stopping.
