After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best dry electric shavers for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Remington XR1400 Verso Wet & Dry Men’s Shaver
The quick charging ability and enhanced battery you get in the Remington XR1400 Wet/Dry electric shaver made it a close race for the No. 1 spot. You will need only 4 hours to reach the maximum charge to run cordless for 45 minutes. This model includes a 5-minute quick charge so you can still get in a quick shave on the days you had forgotten to charge your razor. It is not as impressive a feature as being able to run your razor corded or cordless, but a five-minute wait is better than no shave at all for those important meetings or event.
As seen in the comparative research report,… this Remington electric razor performs just as well, with many of the same positive features, though it offers fewer attachments. In online retailer comparisons, it scored well but under the XR1410, receiving positive ratings at a rate of 10 every 2 days verse the XR1410 at 10 per day. Still great consumer sentiment overall.
The XR1400 comes in at a lower price point, about 30% cheaper than our best pick, making it a more affordable option. You will get included the charcoal-infused scrubbing brush head and an adjustable trimmer with 10 length options. For men prone to razor burn, skin irritations and bumps, XR1400’s included deep cleaning brush head may not be a bonus attachment depending on your sensitive skin issues.
Philips Norelco Oneblade QP6520/70 Pro
Get a supersmooth shave with this Philips Norelco OneBlade Pro razor. The shaver is water-resistant, so you can shave dry or wet with foam in the shower. The durable blades on this Philips Norelco OneBlade Pro razor last up to 4 months, and they’re dual-sided for shaving in either direction. Traditional electric shavers for men are awkward and bulky and many men are running away from them.
Philips Norelco designed a unit that… features a classic design while offering high quality smooth shaves to meet the needs of all shavers. The Philips Norelco Oneblade QP6520/70 is a special beard trimmer with a unique design, not like any other trimmer from Philips. The appearance of the unit is also different and not reminiscent of other Philips shavers. It has a narrow black body with gray edges.
Its head features a single blade as its name suggests. The blade is offered with tiny cutters that look much like the foil style of electric shavers. Each piece is easy to use with a single circular button centrally located on the shaver. This article is an assessment of the OneBlade Pro. It is a single tool that can do all you need in a shaving tool.
Braun Electric Shaver, Series 3 ProSkin 3040s
The ProSkin 3040s is part of the wet & dry razors from the Series 3 and sits somewhere in the middle of the pack considering its price and features. The shaver comes with the usual three blade setup, with two outer foils for cutting hairs close to the skin and one middle trimmer that deals with longer stubble.
Around this trimmer there is a… microcomb that should feed hairs more effectively to the cutters. The three cutting elements can move independently and are integrated into a single cassette, so they can’t be bought and replaced separately.
The materials used are black plastic with both matte and glossy treatments; the razor feels very solid and durable and in my subjective opinion it looks even better than its predecessor. The power button is rubberized and it takes quite a lot of force to press. Since the 3040s doesn’t feature a travel lock, I guess this is a good thing as there is no way you could turn it on by mistake.
Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor, Men’s 5-Blade Cordless
If you don’t want to buy a shaver with a cleaning station during the Cyber Monday deals, the Panasonic Arc 5 LV65-S only includes the shaver. There’s no point in going to the expense of buying kit with cleaning station if you don’t want one. This shaver has five blades in its foil-style shaving head, and has a nice sleek appearance.
The front of the shaver has a detailed LED… readout panel to tell you battery time, low battery, and time for maintenance. This shaver also has the fast 14,000 cuts per minute linear motor to provide fast and efficient shaving. This shaver can also discern hair length, so it will automatically speed up or slow down based on length and thickness so you don’t have to keep on pressing the power button up or down.
The blades within the shaver have been precision-honed at a 30 degree angle. The head of this shaver also has Multi-Flex and pivoting ability. It’s cordless, with wet and dry usage. It’s designed with a sleek dark grey look. There is a large circular on/off switch right on the middle that is easy to find. There is also a large LCD panel on the bottom front.
Philips Norelco Shaver 4500 (Model AT830/46)
Philips is a brand that has been known to produce amazing shavers. The Norelco brand is among the most popular electric shavers of today. We will be reviewing the Norelco 4500 (Model AT830/46) model. This model is a cordless and rechargeable shaver that can be used in both wet and dry conditions. It also includes the DualPrecision shaving head.
This DualPrecision shaving head… can trim long hair and even short stubbles easily. Another unique element of this shaver is that it has a rotary style head and not a foil one. The heads have slots as well as holes to snip off hair quickly whether long or short. The design of this shaver is grey and black matte finish with a plastic casing.
The Norelco Shaver is built with a flex, pivot and flute system. This design allows for proper shaving on all the contours of your face. The head of the shaver has the ability to maintain close contact with the skin on your face all the while remaining gentle. This system grabs more hair in just one sweep so you don’t need to worry about going back and forth numerous times over your face and neck.
Braun Series 9290CC Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
The Braun Series 9290CC is perfect to buy on a Black Friday shaver sale, as it’s a premium cordless shaver that includes a clean and charge station. This foil-style shaver has a shiny and sleek look to it. It has a blue LED readout panel that tells you just how much charge is left. It’s cordless, rechargeable, and works wet or dry.
This shaver works with the Braun patented… SyncroSonic technology to make your shave much closer, smoother, and more comfortable than other shavers on the market today. The foil of this shaver has five different cutting elements that work together to remove more hair in one pass, and with minimal irritation. The clean and charge station is a black colour and works with a 5-action process. It speeds up the cleaning and maintenance of your shaver.
Part of this new generation, the Braun Series 9 9290cc comes in a new silver color treatment and includes an automatic Clean & Charge station. Moreover, this particular model is shaping up to be one of the best selling Series 9 shavers due to its lower price compared to other similar Series 9 variations.
Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 3100, S3310/81
The Philips Norelco Shaver 3100 (S3310/81) represents a newer iteration of another popular shaver from the same Series 3000 line, the PT724/46. The Norelco 3100 brings along redesigned shaving heads and a new black color scheme.
Unlike other shavers… where you must slide the switch to gradually lift the trimmer, here you have to slide it downward and the trimmer, being spring loaded, snaps into position perpendicular to the shaver’s body. If I were to nitpick, I would say that the way you hold the razor during use, with your thumb resting over the power button, makes it susceptible to be accidentally pressed. However, this will happen only if you hold it excessively tight.
Upon plugging the shaver in, the battery notification LED blinks intermittently, alternating between green and orange. This signals the fact that the battery is fully drained. After a few minutes the LED will only blink green and continue so until the battery will be completely charged.
Braun Electric Razor for Men/Electric Shaver, Series 3 310s
Male grooming trends come and go, but the need for a fast, close shave holds steady. And the Braun series 3 310s electric razor is an ideal entry level shaver, great for a fast close shave and travel.
After some minor initial discomfort,… you’ll be able to comfortably achieve a smooth shave in just a few passes. Braun series 3 electric shavers use SensoFoil, which reduces the friction between the blade and your skin – maximizing cutting efficiency while minimizing discomfort.
The deliberate irregular pattern on the foil delivers super cutting efficiency in every stroke. This, combined with super sharp, yet easily retractable blades, provides a close shave, without causing nasty cuts.
