Question about Computers & Internet
My Panasonic shaver quit after several months due to a dirty switch. You can see the batteries in this video. Look at this video on how to clean the switch and look at the batteries... mine would not charge or run until I cleaned the on-off switch.
You probably could replace the batteries with standard Sanyo eneloop NiMH but I have not tried ... they looked to be about the same size as those in the Panasonic and cost about $10 but I am not for sure if a standard size battery will fit. Take a look at the video that I put on YouTube.

Love my ES8003 but the batteries last maybe 1 charge.
I called Panasonic after a fruitless search on the web for batteries and they had none.
They did refer me to Turnpike Appliances which has changed its name or been swallowed up by
If you go to the smallappliances.com site you can search Panasonic men's shavers and find parts for the ES8003. Unfortunately, batteries aren't listed. You need to CALL (1-800-628-3911) smallappliances.com in order for them to special order (meaning you can't return them) the batteries.
Cost of the batteries with shipping is about $42(USD) to my location in California.
To access the batteries, look at the bottom of the razor, there are two very small phillips head screws that attach the base piece of the razor to the body case/internals. The base piece can only attach one way so look at it carefully before unscrewing to make sure you know which way to reattach it. A set of jeweler's screwdrivers is what you need. I actually had better luck removing the phillips head screws with a flat head screw driver...
After removing the screws the base piece should fall away. Lift the razor internals out by grabbing the body case with one hand and, with the other hand holding the foil, lift straight up and out removing the internals from the body case. Note which way the internals came out of the body case so you can put them back in correctly. Gently set the internals down flat on a towel, etc. There are some delicate electrical connections at the bottom you don't want to break. Notice that the two batteries have polarity poles of different lengths. Make sure you note which end is longer, which end is shorter and replace the batteries the same way.
After installing the new batteries, put the razor back together the opposite way you took it apart making sure the rubber seal/plastic trim piece that keeps water out (just below the foil) are seated correctly.
Charge batteries and shave away!
