I read the other review and I agree, this product is a disgrace, I give a 3 just to put a number, but really deserves a big 0, I was thinking about send mine back, but instead just dumped in the garbage.
Thanks for nothing
The instruction booklet states that a charge will last for 42 mins. In fact it lasts only half this time. When the LCD panel shows 60% the shaver cuts out and indicates 0%.
I have had 3 shavers so far and the 3rd is on its way back to be exchanged. I phoned Panasonic each time only to be told it is nothing to do with us, get in touch with the seller!
I agree with George S about the closeness of the shave. It *can* give you a close shave but only after many passes over the same patch.
I also agree about the elaborate cleaning dock. Mine went straight into a cupboard and hasn't been out since. Brush and tap seem to work perfectly well.
It is a disadvantage that you can't use the shaver while it is plugged in: you have to remember to recharge in good time.
On the plus side, I like the charge guide that always tells you how full the battery is, and I like its quiet buzz. My previous shaver sounded like a lorry going uphill.
