Electric shavers are analogous to manual razors, but they work in automatic mode. Often their use is more convenient: for example, in those cases when there is not much time to shave, but it is necessary to put yourself in order.
The reaction of the magazine decided to answer numerous questions from readers and compiled a list of the 9 best manufacturers of electric shavers. The selection of companies in the rating was carried out taking into account user reviews, as well as a detailed study of the range of companies by staff experts.
Rating of the best manufacturers of electric shavers
|Rating of the best manufacturers of electric shavers||1||Philips||5.0|
Philips is one of the largest manufacturers of household appliances in the world, and this does not in the least prevent it from occupying a leading position in the manufacture and sale of rotary shavers. In fact, only the Remington brand could impose a serious struggle in this segment, if the brand owners used all the available chances and opportunities. Philips also competes with Braun and Panasonic in absentia, and this struggle is getting more intense from year to year.
The main component of the success of the Dutch company's razors is the combination of 3 factors: appearance, abundance of choice and reliability of the shaving system. Even the factor of low cost is not among the key advantages, although for domestic consumers this is in the order of things. Let's talk about the representatives. Philips AT756 AquaTouch wet and dry shave has been a # 1 selling product for several years in a row. The model has a built-in trimmer function and provides up to 40 minutes of battery life. If we talk about production models, we cannot ignore the Philips S5110 Series 5000 – a powerful electric shaver with 3 floating blades on an independent block
The German company Braun was founded in 1921 (3 years later than Panasonic) and since then has adhered to a clear framework of customer loyalty. For 20 years it has been actively developing the production of electric shavers and is an indispensable leader in this segment.
In response to the latest trends in gentle body care, Braun has taken on the challenge of creating razors for people with sensitive skin. And not to the detriment of the main function: all models on the market have positive reviews for the quality of shaving. It should also highlight the focus on recognizable design features and the low cost bar that the company manages to maintain. Of the outstanding representatives, we single out the current model of past seasons 3020s Series 3 ProSkin, which has 3 shaving heads, a battery with a charge for 45 minutes of battery life and a case of increased ergonomics with a rubberized handle. Also, do not forget about new items: for example, about the premium 7893s Series 7 model with 50 minutes of independent work, an even more comfortable body and an improved shaving system.
Panasonic is one of the three established leaders in the segment, with a reputation for over 30 years. Its main feature: the development of electric razors of an original appearance. The products of this company are always easy to distinguish from competitors.
In contrast to Braun, the Japanese manufacturer relies heavily on the production of expensive models, and for more than 7 years this rate has been playing great: according to the company's reports, it is expensive electric shavers that sell best and make the bulk of the revenue. However, Panasonic also has budget shavers in its assortment, so we will suggest considering both options.
Panasonic ES-LV6Q model is the property of premium electric shavers of the Japanese company. It has 5 flexible shaving heads for the closest shave. It works autonomously for 45 minutes and has a waterproof housing. From the budget models, we highlight the ES-RT77, which can withstand up to 54 minutes without recharging and also has a waterproof case.
An interesting manufacturer of electric shavers, which only slightly falls short of the top companies, but has some success in the world market. It develops and manufactures both types of razors: mesh and rotary, which sometimes shoot out in sales and overtake recognized leaders such as Braun, Panasonic and Philips.
As an example, consider an interesting rotary model of the Remington PR1350 electric shaver. It has 3 movable shaving heads, which are waterproof and fixed on the movable block. The time of independent work of the model is 40 minutes, which is a good indicator for such functionality.
The second option, the Remington PF7500, is practical and reliable. The battery life of the device is 50 minutes, and this is in the presence of 3 floating shaving heads on the movable unit. True, she only supports dry shaving, but high-quality and comfortable.
The Remington company has been on the verge of entering the category of leaders for 2 years, but for some reason it cannot or does not try to budge. It is a pity, because it only lacks a sensible advertising campaign.
American manufacturer of classic electric shavers with a grid shaving system, which is represented on the market by a small number of products. Some of the models belong to the budget segment, while others are premium devices with a high level of reliability.
The cheapest representative of the brand is Wahl 3615-0471 – a pocket electric shaver with 1 shaving head. It is compact, has a lid and is intended for dry shaving only. It works autonomously for up to 45 minutes, but requires some getting used to constant use.
The premium shaver is the Wahl 8164-116, which can last a whopping 80 minutes on a single charge. Due to its compactness, it is easy to take with you on business trips and travels where there is no access to the power supply network. It is designed for dry shaving and has 2 floating heads, easy to clean of hairs. Great for sensitive skin and copes well with thick stubble.
Over the past few years, VITEK has developed into a manufacturer of high-quality electric shavers in the mid-price segment, although a few years ago it won competition only from the Japanese-Chinese Supra. Now the mesh and rotary razors of the domestic brand can be compared with the Remington company, however, with a reservation regarding the range of models. Their main advantage is expressed in a good level of productivity, efficiency, as well as an attractive price for consumers.
An example of VITEK products is the VT-8264 electric mesh shaver. It has a rigidly mounted unit with 2 shaving heads and a body without moisture protection, which is why it only supports dry shaving. Its battery life is 40 minutes.
From rotary electric shavers it is worth paying attention to VT-8266. It consists of 3 floating blades, also supports only dry shaving, but for 45 minutes. Perfectly shaves hairs in hard-to-reach areas and does not irritate the skin.
Domestic razors of the Berdsk trademark are the property of users who are not accustomed to overpaying for a comfortable and high-quality shave. Their peculiarity lies in the focus on functionality and reliability at the expense of generally accepted standards of beauty and convenience. A striking example of this is 'Berdsk 9' – a rotary electric shaver with 3 fixed heads, similar to everything that was produced in the days of the Soviet Union. Now the popularity of this model has slightly decreased, but a year and a half ago it was among the leaders in sales in Russia.
An attempt to create something interesting was made by manufacturers with the 3381A foil shaver. It didn't work out very well, but 30 minutes of battery life and reliability of the level 'won't break in 10 years' did their job: those who do not pursue the company and pseudo-status are trying to get themselves this two-blade model. Of the latter, we note the 'Berdsk 3341' – a rotary electric shaver in a convenient and attractive case with a rubberized power button.
AVEC specializes in the creation of mid-range electric shavers and competes with the prominent representatives of this market group: Remington and Atlanta. With them, she is related not only to belonging to the middle peasants, but also by a certain elitism: these razors are widely known only in small user circles.
From the technical point of view, AVEC shavers are only slightly inferior to the market leaders in the person of Braun, Panasonic and Philips: some of their characteristics are deliberately understated in order to keep the price bar within the required limits.
As an example, we will take the KS9200 rotary shaver with 3 floating heads. It is distinguished by a convenient housing design, high-quality design of moving elements and the ability to work up to 40 minutes without recharging. On the other hand, the KS313 foil shaver stands out, which works autonomously for up to 45 minutes. It features 2 mesh-type shaving heads with a floating base, so you can easily bypass difficult contours and ensure a close shave. In appearance, the model looks rather modest, but in terms of reliability and performance, it does not hold.
A Chinese-Japanese manufacturing company known to the consumer for electrical equipment for a car (radio, speakers, subwoofers) and household items (kettles, mixers, blenders, etc.). Supra not long ago made mediocre electric shaver kits, but low demand and consumer feedback forced them to improve product quality and lower base cost.
The new generation of electric shavers is the Supra RS-216 mesh model, which has 2 shaving heads and can work up to 45 minutes without recharging. Users noted a slightly outdated design, but they liked the quality of the shave. An example of a Supra rotary shaver is the RS-213 with similar battery life (45 minutes), but equipped with today's standard 3 floating heads. Due to its high mobility, it provides a perfectly even shave in the neck area and does not irritate the skin.
