R-9190 Electric Shaver: The razor is used 20 seconds a day and used to go ...

The razor is used 20 seconds a day and used to go months between chargings and would eventually slow down indicating a charge would soon be needed. Now 4 years later it will not last 7 days (2 minutes useage) and will abruptly go from perfect performance to not starting at all - just overnight. is it the battery? I assume they can be changed. Or do we have something else going on? Plugging it in or recharging it seems to solve the problem of it not even attempting to start so I suspect it is not a switch problem.

How Long Should My Shaver Battery Last?

It depends on the razor. If you have a non-rotary razor, go in diagonals, against the grain and in small circles. If you have a rotary, like a Norelco, larger circles and straight up/down. I find it hard to get all the hairs so, I also use a regular razor blade in the shower and just do my neck.

Turn the electric razor on and begin shaving against the direction of hair growth, moving the shaving head linearly and in circles. Circular motion Stretch the skin with your other hand to make the hair stand up straighter so the razor blades shave closer.<br /> <br /> After shaving, turn it off and rinse the cutting heads under warm water. You can also use jet clean system once a week to clean your shaver. Make sure that you charge it for the time specified in user manual. Overcharging may cause damage to the battery.

How do I get the razor to charge. It doesn't last more than 10 seconds. I've only had the razor for about 2 months

If the chafing light acts normal, and you still can't use it for a short time after charging, You should go back to the store. A battery should last at least one year. But if the razor was in the store for one or more years, without any charge, the battery can be bad already.
Please try charging a few times, but is the battery keeps running low in a few seconds or minutes, go back to the store with it.

What is an electric shaver?

Not like shaving razors, electric shavers work by shearing the whiskers, the hair enters the perforated metal heads of the shaver and is cut by the moving blade inside.

Shaver won't hold a charge, can battery be replaced?

Yes, you can replace the rechargeable batteries in your shaver with a few basic skills. If you can disasseble the shell case and have access to a soldering iron, you can remove the old faulty batteries and reinstall the replacement ones. Not only will you save a ton of money, but you'll have your trusty shaver running like new quickly!

Here's a link to Electric Shaver Service's battery page that has your battery listed (R-9000 series) for around $15.00 plus S&H.

I've done this on my own razor twice in the past 10-15 years and it's still less expensive than buying a new razor, since I really like the shave I get with mine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
