  1. Hi Mark. One of the hidden benefits of these electric shavers is that they are cheap to run over time. This one especially is a very good quality one and forces you into proper maintenance because of the self-cleaning feature. No more adding oil either. I just have to open it up and do a bit of deep cleaning once a year.

    My model number is slightly different, but I think it’s because I bought it in another country rather than an older model.

    By the way, I have had this electric shaver for over 5 years and only had to change the razor 3 months ago, and I have thick hair.

    So, I highly recommend it if you want to save money in the long run on razor blades. Think of it as an upfront payment. How much money do you spend on razer blades per year?

    1. Hi Zaid, I’m really not sure how much we spend on razor blades since my hubby doesn’t use manual shavers very often since they don’t get along with his face too well. In fact, he has tried several different electric shavers and this particular shaver is one of his favorites.
