Excerpt: At first I was quite impressed that it could be charged directly rather than relying on disposable batteries, but I quickly discovered that it takes a LONG time to replenish its full power, something like sixteen hours in fact! It does plug into a standard shaver socket, so you may also need to buy an adaptor if you don’t have one of those. Even with these small problems, though, I think it would make a good backup or travel razor.
Summary: I purchased this razor as a defuzzer for my legs, especially needed for the summer. I am partially sighted and razor blades are a bit dangerous and I landed up cutting myself. Also I have rather prominent shin bones and again razor blades a bit dodgy. I Have had problems in the past with razors with foil heads as the size of the foil is not very safe for people with "sticky out bones" I found this razor superb, cuts nice and close, easy to use being so small, does not...
Summary: My first impression was that this little shaver was the doggies, being light, compact and giving a reasonable shave. However when it came to recharging battery I just couldn't get the cable back in to charge it. So basically a waste of money. Shame because until that point I would have given it 5 stars.
Summary: Good, compact design. Ensured that instructions followed in respect of the initial charging, since which time the power retention period has been very good. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Defective (twice) product but excellent Amazon policy
23 September 2013
Summary: Purchased and used the shaver for 2 months. It's really good for the price. Then, the on/off stopped working properly. Sometimes it didn't start, sometimes it didn't stop (can you imagine not being able to turn it off? :) ). That's why I rated it 4 stars so the company improves its QC process. Amazon was great(as always) and quickly offered me a free replacement. EDIT: I've got two items defective. They just stop working after a month of use.
Summary: At best I only get 3 shaves fully charged each one lasting 2 minuits. Not a bad shave however but dissapointing operational time. Perhaps it is faulty I want to return this recent purchase under guarantee.How!
