Just about every man these days has an electric shaver they count on to keep their face, clean and smooth. Electrics deliver in a number of ways manual varieties simply can’t. However, not all electrics are made the same. Many are actually both far more expensive than manual versions and not remotely worth it. For the most part, it comes down to the brand behind the model. In this regard, Panasonic is considered king of the hill.
The company itself actually has a heritage that’s almost 100 years old. However, a lot has obviously changed since then. Panasonic makes a number of personal and healthcare products that include hair dryers, nose hair trimmers, electric toothbrushes and even massage chairs. The quality of these items has helped Panasonic become a household name in this industry. Of course, their electric razors are considered an industry standard across price ranges.
Two of the best versions are the ES-LV81-K/ES-LV61-A and ES-LA93-K/ESLA63-S Arc 4 Wet/Dry Shaver. Let’s take a closer look at them now.
Panasonic ES-LA93-K/ESLA63-S Arc 4 Wet/Dry Shaver
This model is the cheaper of the two, coming in at about $100 less than the other. However, it’s no slouch. You get the option of shaving in wet or dry conditions, without missing a beat for the latter.
Panasonic gave this model four separate razors with a good deal of mobility, that helps them meet the contours of your face and keep a close shave at all times. Two different coils cover them, one for lifting the hairs, the other for catching and cutting. That second foil is especially effective on long hairs like the type some of us have in our beards. It can cut right through them without getting caught or letting one slip by.
Charging this model is simple thanks to the handy console that comes with it. Better still, though, is that this console also cleans your razor at the same time.
Though this model ups the price, there’s an argument to be made that’s certainly worth the cost. For one thing, it adds another razor, bringing the total count to five. Plus, it uses an additional foil as well. The razors on this one move just as well as the prior model and the third foil helps to make sure no hair gets left behind. So if you have a thick beard or uncooperative hair, this model is probably the one for you.
This model also has face-hugging technology thanks to a pivoting head that can go 25 degrees backward and forward and another 20 degrees left and right. That means you can navigate the contours of your face without concern about having to constantly stop and start. You get a quicker shave that remains close.
Like that last model, this machine also comes with a console that allows you to charge and clean it all at the same time.
If you’re in the market for an electric razor, you can’t go wrong with Panasonic. The two options above bring enough to the table to keep every man happy.
