Question about Shavers

1 Answer

Mains shaver , speed of a battery one which is running down and no power!

My husband has used philips shavers since his youth in the 60`s, and has had no trouble with his Philishave super 90 special, or his Philishave deluxe HP15(or6)02 both mains powered and sound like little ferraris, compared to this new high faluting washable mains one , in fact I can use a wet razor and shave my legs faster than this thing shaves my husband`s face, and Im 60.! Should they sound so weak when you use them? I`m beginning to think he should have stuck with his old ones and got new blades.

Solved the problem with the shaver, PhilipsHQ7300, "mains washable" took it back and went back to old ones, which when you use them seem to have the power to shave you and not sound like they are running on low battery, which as they are mains I cant understand alright they are reduced to 24 volts(for safety purposes if you wash them plugged in) but a cordless 18 volt drill sounds more powerful than the shaver I know they are 2 different things but surely a shaver should shave smooth and quick, I know things are progressing fast and the great selling point is for products "look how much time you save" but this shaver is not up to par with the older models and it certainly does not save time, so as we no longer have this item we have solved the problem thankyou

What is the best beard trimmer for styling and sensitive skin?


Yes, you are right! Now a days most of the people are using electric shaver because of its advantages like:
  1. It gives a fast shave.
  2. It is cheaper than manual shaving kits
  3. It gives a smooth shave and also there is no chance to get cut or skin irritation
If you are looking for beard trimmer than i will let know that trimmers are used to cleaning up the edges. I would recommend you to use clippers rather than using trimmers because clippers are used for doing the bulk of a haircut.

Philips only makes one model that runs exclusively from the cord. It is the 'low end' model. It can be found at shaveroutlet.com at the link below

Philips also makes several models that will run from rechargeable batteries OR directly from the cord. These are the middle of the road models. A quality model in this area can be found at the link below

Battery needs replacement


Replacing the batteries is not an easy job. You need to have a special Torx screwdriver to undo the screws.

The batteries are soldered onto the Control Board (it's unfortunately not just a case of cracking open the case and putting in batteries in an instant)

It may be worth speaking to your local Philips Service Center (refer to www.philips.com)

Your shaver should also be a Mains shaver - if you plug it in and it works full power immediately you've got a workaround. I usually recommend if you're replacing a shaver to spend a little more $$'s to get one that is mains and rechargeable so that when the batteries die, the shaver is still useable.

Norelco 8894XL will not take a charge


Sounds like you're getting to the end of your natural battery life. As for replacing the batteries, it's not an easy job. You need to have a special Torx screwdriver to undo the screws.

The batteries are soldered onto the Control Board (it's unfortunately not just a case of cracking open the case and putting in batteries in an instant)

It may be worth speaking to your local Philips Service Center (refer to www.philips.com)

Not being at work, I can't check whether your shaver is a mains/rechargeable, but if you plug it in and it works full power immediately you've got a workaround. I usually recommend if you're replacing a shaver to spend a little more $$'s to get one that is mains and rechargeable so that when the batteries die, the shaver is still useable.
