Key features

  • Shaving Sensor Technology - Ultimate Shaving Sensor Technology recognises differences in the density of your beard as you shave (220 times per second*). This technology adjusts the power of the motor, boosting power where your beard growth is heavy, and reducing power where it is thin, helping to minimise skin irritation. *Panasonic Laboratory Stroboscope Testing, Japan.
  • Ultra-Fast Linear Motor - 14,000cpm Linear Motor, Panasonic's ES-LV97 delivers up to 70,000 cross-cutting actions per minute, ensuring you an exceptionally powerful and smooth shave.
  • No beard can slow this ultra-fast Linear Motor down, regardless of how thick it is. With a steady cutting speed right until the battery runs out, you can be confident of getting a powerful, smooth shave every time.
  • Auto Cleaning & Charging System - When you finish shaving, put the shaver in its stand and it automatically cleans and charges itself.
  • The shaver is thoroughly cleaned of beard clippings and sebum, helping to keep the blades sharp for longer.
  • 5 Arched Blades for Efficient Cutting - 5 outer blades are designed differently to capture and cut all kinds of hairs.
  • Quick Slit Blade with Comb: provides improved pre-cutting of long hairs.
  • Quick Lift Foil: lifts up flat-lying hairs efficiently, especially on the neck & chin.
  • Finishing Foil: with this extremely thin foil, longer hairs get a second, closer cut*. *Compared to Panasonic 3-Blade Shaver, Panasonic Laboratory Testing.
  • Multi-Flex 16 Directions Head - The shaver moves in 16 directions independently* and follows the contours of the face and neck easily to reduce the number of strokes required to shave even flat-lying hair. *Panasonic Laboratory Report, Japan.

Troublesome accessories

I bought one of these Panasonic shavers two or three years ago. I've used it every day with excellent results. Fortunately, I have a fairly light beard. A couple of weeks ago the converter built into the power cable packed up. I found a replacement on Amazon and that works fine. Why not supply the same Shavers? Anyway, when I tried to open the cleaning/charging unit two days ago to replace the cleaning fluid, it wouldn't open. Well, the release worked on one side of the unit but not on the other. I may find a way to clear the problem but try as I have done at odd times over the past two days I've not found a way. I could have bought a replacement cleaning unit from Shavers but the price difference between the cost of a replacement unit and a new shaver including a cleaning unit led me to buy a new Panasonic shaver. The old shaver should be good as a standby for a few more years.

The best shaver I've owned in 55 years

Panasonic ES-LV97 September 2021 This shaver shaves me (a crusty old git with tough facial hair) better than any electric shaver I've ever owned. If I use shaving gel as well, I can't tell the difference from a wet shave; except for the vastly reduced shaving time. The head gets at awkward places under my nose very easily and does not burn with repeated passes or heavier pressure. It is extremely impressive at shaving my ears too! All in all it is way better than my Philips rotary shaver which cost twice the price. The cleaning station works very well too and dries the head completely. This, again, is a real treat after the Philips which left the head cold and wet. I have dopped 10% off the rating due to the high cost of cleaning fluid and replacement cutters/foils.
