Though there has been a recent trend of long beard, still the vast majority of men shave their facial hair. They like to go with a clean and sharp look. For that category – gift to others, or self-gift – we have compiled a list of best electric shavers in the market. But before we talk about electric shavers let’s have a quick look at how electric shavers differ from razors.
Razors Power – Manually powered – you hand powers the movement and force for the blade to move along face to cut the hair. Blades – option of traditional single blade razor, or multi-stacked blades for even closer shave. Prep work – you must use shaving cream, and in some cases even pre-shave oil to soften up skin and hair. Re-usability – you can buy disposable razors, or razor handle with disposable blades part.
Electric Shavers Power – electric-powered (battery / AC) – your hand provides the direction, electric power provides force for blade(s) movement to cut the hair. Blades – there are two main types of electric shavers – foil and rotary. Foil Shaver has oscillating (back and forth) blades under a “foil”, and the blades cut the hair touching the blades through foil mesh. Rotary Razor, on the other hand, has three spinning heads that capture the hair to cut them. Prep work – Electric Shavers come in dry (only) or wet-and-dry models. But you don’t need shaving cream or pre-shave oil for using Electric Shavers. Though you could use cream with some Wet models. Re-usability – Reusable with rechargeable batteries – they last a long time, with a need to replace blades-head (they typically last several months).
