An outstanding buy
Traveling around to various places does present a few problems now and then. One of them is getting a decent shave and not having to carry a bunch of stuff to do that with.
I wear a partial beard, but still have to keep the old skin smooth on the rest of my face and neck. At home I have a Braun, which (to be quite honest) is rubbish - the holes on the foil are too small and it has no real power. So during the process of kitting myself out, I decided to see what Panasonic have to offer.
No matter what the shaver, it had to be lightweight, battery powered and not take up very much room in my backpack. I bought the little wet-dry Panny and stuck 2 batteries in and tried it out. I had a better shave in a third the time of the Braun - off of batteries yet.
I used the shaver on both journeys to Spain and Portugal, plus a few around the UK, where I live. Also I've begun using it at home as well and still it does a fantastic job. The battery management on the Panasonic is great. I have no idea just how long these batteries are going to last. I do remove them after each shave, that helps.
Do I recommend it? Definitely. The thing is very easy to clean and I reckon that it's probably one of the best buys I've made.
PS: Had fun doing the first image. Pulled an old advertising trick out of the hat - been years.
