Summary: Re: Panasonic ES518N Ultra Thin Dry Men's Travel Shaver, Gold This product is a must if you shave. I keep my Panasonic shave in the car to touch up my 5'O Clock shadow growth or quick shave anywhere, anytime. A price value product with a name worthy of his reputation.
Summary: Positive: - VERY elegant design! (personally, I would have preferred a "silver" case, instead of gold) - low battery consumption Negative: - no trimmer - small shaving area, with that slow shave (a large part of the foil area does not even have holes) - tendency to catch a single hair, and then not cut it "fast enough". Result, as you "move on" the shaver pulls those hairs. That hurts. - unexpectedly heavy - NOT water resistant (no "wet/ dry" shaves).
Summary: I got this for vacation traveling. It packs very small, runs on AAA batteries and just works like a champ. I am very happy with the purchase as it does everything that I want. It shaves close and does it fast.
Summary: It is good for travelingh. I ordered it as a replacement for my full size Norelco, which I lost half-way during my deployment in Afghanistan. The vendor does not ship to APO address. I had it shipped home, then to me via USPS. Therefore, it took longer to get here. It is still working well after a couple of months. Although I noticed it nicked the skin more when you push it down to get a closer shave.
Summary: This is the third Ultra Thin Travel Shaver I have purchased...I keep one in my travel bag and at home and vacation place. I use only for tough hairs on my upper lip and wet shave the rest of my face. Not sure how this would work on the whole face but might be good for late afternoon touch-ups. Works great as it is thin, easy to maneuver and takes regular AAA batteries so chargers not needed. I have never replaced one so they seem to last a long time. Highly recommended.
Summary: This is exactly what I was looking for--something really small and light and which actually works, to take on short trips or remove the 5 o'clock shadow. I'm sick of hauling a heavy can of shaving soap, or finding it empty. Not a bad price either.
Summary: I've used travel shavers for the last fifteen years. This one is the best. It delivers a shave. It is compact. The batteries last a long time. It feels solid. This is a great value for the money!
