Have tried over the years many brands this shaver has topped the lot first class product. And a first class service from shavers will definatley use you again.
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.
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.
