Best Electric Shaver 2016
In best electronic shavers 2016 we have reviewed some of the best new shavers in different price categories. The idea is to find you a good shaver that you can afford.
What you should look for in a electric shaver:
- Durability: The better shavers will give you years of use without any problems.
- A smooth shave: Not all electric shavers can deliver on their promises, but the ones reviewed here do.
- Clever battery use: The charging setup needs to be well thought through to make things easier for you. It's no good if you run out of power in the middle of a shave.
The Braun Series 7 – 790cc Pulsonic Shaver
This is our number one pick. If you have the money, this shaver is by far the best shaver of 2016.
Its efficient, fast and self cleaning. This Pulsonic shaver from Braun ripples the skin as it runs, so that more hair is removed at a stroke. It’s a gentle shaver that moves easily all over your face, without creating a noticeable vibration. I know that a vibrating electric shaver seems a little gimmicky. Based on user feedback from a few sources it does seem that it makes for a smoother shave and a better over all experience.
Hair is never pulled or tugged- that means a more comfortable shave.
The sensitive flexing head helps you reach difficult areas. It reaches hair growing in different directions at the same time. This gives you a closer shave (without stubbles) that lasts through the day. No more irritation after a shave.
Unlike other shavers this one isn't prone to heating up after a few minutes of use. The grip is soft and comfortable.
The biggest advantage to this state of the art shaver is that it lifts and removes problem hair in a single stroke. I found it helpful in removing those flat lying hairs on my cheek.
The shaver cleans and lubricates itself at the touch of a button (in 25 seconds flat). Alternatively you can clean it under running water.
Panasonic ES8109S Vortex Wet/Dry Shaver
The HydraClean system in the new Panasonic ES8109S Vortex Wet/Dry Shaver delivers a comfortable shaving experience to the user. It comes with a triple blade design that cleans even thick beards. What’s more, it has a pivoting head that follows the face contours. This helps you get a closer shave.
The Vortex works in the wet or dry. You can shave in the shower or use shaving cream, like you do with a normal razor.
The blades on this little powerhouse are polished using Nano technology. This gives you a better performance. You can clean it under running water or use the inbuilt cleaning mode. The HydraClean system on this shaver uses a combination of water and detergent to keep the blades sparkling clean. The heating system ensures that the shaver is dry at all times.
It comes with a convenient battery charging system that tells you when the battery needs charging. The battery lasts for at least 9 shaves- so you don’t have to worry about frequent recharging. It’s lighter and reasonably priced, compared to other brands that deliver the same functionality.
Philips Norelco 7810 Men's Cutting System
The more traditional and dependable rotary shavers do the job for less than the premium swivel head shavers we reviewed above.
Looking for a close shave, a more comfortable grip and the shortest possible stubble? Go for this slim featured beauty. It provides a uniform shaving experience with the super lift and cut mechanism.
It has 3 floating heads that move over the contours of the face smoothly to provide a close shave that lasts through the day.
It comes with a spring release trimmer that makes it easy to trim the moustache and sideburns. The cover head comes in different patterns. It has tiny holes that remove even the shortest of stubbles.
The main drawback of this shaver is that it doesn't come with a travel case.
Backed by a superior battery that provides up to 24 shaves at a time, the performance is smooth and remarkably noiseless. The cutting heads provide a higher speed that decreases the chance of a razor burn.
Philips Norelco 7310 Men's Shaving System
In our opinion the Norelco is the best budget electric shaver of 2016. I wouldn't go any cheaper than this as the cheaper products don't tend to last for very long.
This shaver also has pop up trimmers that help you manage your sideburns and mustache easily.
The Norelco has convenient LED charge and power indicators. Combined with a head cap for the razor and a power cord.This setup is convenient when you are out traveling.
The Norelco comes with a 2 year warranty and a 60 day money back guarantee. Which is impressive in this price range.
