Shave Wet or Dry
Unlike so many other electrics on the market (even many priced for more), the Panasonic Arc 3 ES-LT71-S can handle shaving your face whether it’s wet or dry. This truly provides you the best of both worlds. Most men would prefer to shave dry. It saves time and that means you can shave every single day regardless of your schedule. However, everyone knows a wet shave is impossible to beat for closeness. So it makes all the difference in the world to be able to get that wet shave once a week or so. With this model, you only need one razor to do both, making it perfect for long term business trips when you need to look your best throughout.
In an age where every subsequent razor tries to add yet another blade to its repertoire, the Panasonic Arc 3 ES-LT71-S has stuck with just three. However, each one is specifically designed to increase the quality of your overall shave and they “float” in place, providing for a custom approach to every contour of your face. Each blade is positioned at 30 degrees, making them ready to cut at the best possible angle on contact.
They sit behind an ultrathin foil cutting system that is made from stainless steel. So it glides effortlessly over your face, arranging your hairs so the three blades can cut right through them with ease.
Furthermore, you’re getting three blades and a foil that can be replaced as necessary. As much as you may like to believe that blades on an electric simply run forever, the truth is that after about a year of regular use, you’re going to want to replace it for the best possible shave. The same goes for that outer foil too. Fortunately, this is a very affordable option compared to having to buy a new electric altogether.
Making the cut even better is the pivoting head available with this model. Combined with the floating blades, this makes it extremely easy to run the electric over your face and be assured a close, comfortable cut that won’t leave glaring missed spots because of tough angles.
Power You Can Feel
Given the affordable price on the Panasonic Arc 3 ES-LT71-S, you’d be forgiven for thinking it would drop the ball where its engine was concerned. Fortunately, you’d be mistaken. This model can fire off 13,000 cycles per minutes thanks to an extremely strong and reliable linear motor. The result is an electric razor that doesn’t stop and start or jerk. Enjoy an extremely close shave by never having to stop and restart or irritate your skin thanks to a jerky motor.
Clean and Charge All at Once
Again, at this price, you’d expect a razor that came with a tiny brush for you to use to clean it. This is always a great way to ensure your electric razor becomes clogged up with hair overtime because no one has the time to manually clean theirs out every single time. Fortunately, with the Panasonic Arc 3 ES-LT71-S, you don’t have to.
This model comes with a console that handles the cleaning for you. So as soon as you’re done shaving, just pop it in and walk away. The next time you need that razor it will be as clean as it was the first time you brought it out of the box. Plus, it charges at the same time. So when you next need that razor, it will be charged, clean and ready to go.
Best of all, once this model is charged, it’s going to stay that way for an hour and 45 minutes. That means one charge should last the average man nearly three weeks. So take it on the road without bringing the charger with you knowing you have weeks’ worth of shaving right in the palm of your head.
Panasonic equipped the Arc 3 ES-LT71-S with a five stage LCD readout. This makes it easy to appreciate how much juice it has left, so you don’t end up halfway through your shave with no juice left.
No one wants to feel like they’re holding up a Walkman to their face when they shave. But this model is just short of two and a half pounds and a little over six inches wide. Combine that with the travel pouch it comes with and you’ll be able to take and use it anywhere.
If you want a great model that is affordable on any budget, the Panasonic Arc 3 ES-LT71-S comes highly recommended. It’s full of great features and no real drawbacks.
