You have two choices when it comes to Electric Razors

1. Rotary Electric Razors

Rotary electric razors have two, three, or four separate rotating heads each protected by a thin grid as they glide across your face. Many rotary razors have heads that can pivot to follow the contours of your face ensuring a faster shave than those without pivoting heads.


2. Foil Electric Razors

Foil electric razors have a thin screen that protects the oscillating heads as the razor moves across your skin. They are generally quieter than rotary razors and can be easier to clean. In many tests, these razors are said to provide a closer shave.
Features of Mens Electric Razors
There are many different features available on the various models available, and these can have an impact on the price you can expect to pay.

Rechargeable Electric Razors: Not all electric razors are rechargeable. For some, especially in the lower price range, the razor will need to be plugged in while in use. This has obvious implications for where you can use the razor.


Quick Charge Facility: Most rechargeable razors have a quick charge facility when you need a shave in a hurry. While a full charge can usually take up to 60 minutes a shaver with this facility can get enough of a charge for a shave in a few minutes.

Long Hair Trimmer: Most rotary razors come with a long hair trimmer for side burns and moustaches.


Wet and Dry Shaving: An electric razor with this feature can be used in the shower.
Easy Cleaning Features: One of the most frustrating aspects of an electric razor is the need to clean it. This can often involve dismantling the razor and cleaning individual parts separately. An electric razor with easy clean facilities will be easier to look after and therefore last longer.
