Question about Norelco 3601 X Electric Shaver

1 Answer

More a Question Than a Problem

I plan to take this shaver abroad from the US to Ireland and England. May I use a plug adapter, or do I need a voltage converter?

    This is an older model cordless shaver, so I'm concerned that it may not take the higher UK voltage.

    Well, sending me to an ad for an overpriced (as usual) plug adapter at Radio Shack wasn't it.  
    What I wanted to know was if a distorted 220V sinusoidal waveform, which is what you usually get on a solid-state voltage converter, would damage my shaver.  In the event, I wound up taking an even older Norelco that had a 110/220 switch.  I also found that in Britain and Ireland many bathrooms have dual 110/220 plugs that say "Shavers Only."

Hi will the 790cc shaver work in Australia purchased from americabraun

The 790cc shaver has a dual voltage charger and will work with any country's voltage. However, it will almost certainly have a North American plug if purchased in the US. Therefore, you will need a simple plug adapter. You can see one at at the link below

I am in Europe and need to recharge my Norelco shaver 5861. Will it damage the batteries if I use an adaptor and plug the shaver into a 220v outlet?

Model 5861 has worldwide voltage capability and can be charged from 100-240V without requiring a voltage converter. If your shaver cord has an American plug, you will need a simple adapter to fit European wall outlets. You will find this item at See link below
