The Remington ES-1000 was probably the best slot-head shaver ever made by Remington. I cannot believe that the market demand was so low as to prompt a cancellation of production. I believe that the production run was limited to about 4 years or so. I have 8 of these shavers and keep a couple old Remington slot heads around as well. The ES-1000 was not perfect. The batteries were way too small and stressed so battery life was poor.You could not buy individual blades as you could with past Remington slot-head units.Also, the edge of the head was too exposed and sharp and when used for body shaving would tend to cut the skin.Slot-head shavers are superior for body shaving and for skin that is suseptible to shaving bumps.They are also great for young men that are prone to ingrown hairs.My guess is that the Norelco 3 head has taken it's place. Those shavers actually use 3 small slot heads. Rumor has it that shavers.com is trying to have a new slot head manufactured in Asia.

This shaver was pretty clearly not designed for battery replacement. To open, first remove the screen and blades, and unhook the metal collar from the tab on the back of the case. Then carefully pry off the black inset on the front of the shaver. Underneath it, near the bottom are two screws. Remove these. The case is now only held together by several plastic latches, which can be carefully pried apart with a small screwdriver. The two 2/3A size batteries are soldered to the printed circuit board, which can be pulled out (don't break the wires to the motor) by a little wiggling. The original batteries in mine are 1100mAh, and I have just ordered 1600mAh replacements. The new ones don't have tabs - so soldering them in place is probably going to be a challenge.

In the PDF instructions it describes how to remove the batteries. The instructions fail to mention that there is a spit of yellow glue that is holding one of the batteries to the curcuit board with a death grip. Undoubtedly, you will have to use a knife, not in the glue, but on the skin of the battery. Pull on the teather wire, and slice the battery skin around the glue.
If after removing the batteries, and you are not thouroughly discusted with the manufacturer, then purchase a couple of AA Ni-cad batteries solder the positive of one battery to the negative of the other. then solder the free positive end to the red wire, and then the blue wire to the free negative end. Then try to remember how to reverse the process and put it back together, without leaving any parts out. ;-)
There is a risk of injury by overheating the battery when soldering. That should be avoidable if you remember how to drop solder. Just like its name, it involves having the wire securely held in place. Then hold solder iron over the wire/battery end. Then take some rosin-core solder and apply the solder to the hot tip. Then make sure the newly melted solder lands on the contact. Keep in place until it cools and holds the wire to the battery.
If you think this is better than writing to Remington complaining that they did not make it easier and use contacts, instead of solder, so we can simply pop in a new set of batteries. Or maybe look at other manufacturers, and see if they are any better.
