The symmetrical alignment of the 5 blades makes for a nice feature that covers a lot of the face quickly. The battery can last as long as 3 weeks on a full charge without losing any shaving power. We are impressed by the close shave provided by the 14,000 cuts per minute motor, as close as what is available from many manual blades.
Charging the battery too often may shorten the life of the battery.
The 4-blade alignment offers a fast shave without irritation. Comes with the long-lasting battery and wet and dry convenience of other Panasonic models. This model stands out for the 14,000 cuts per minute dual motor, which rotates the blades and the head of the razor simultaneously for an impressively close shave.
The head is slightly bulkier than some Panasonic razors, making it more difficult to navigate, especially on smaller faces.
The 13,000 cuts per minute motor gives a close shave without leaving any rash or bumps. The LED readout not only tells the current charge level of the razor, but also alerts if the blades need to be oiled or changed. Stainless steel multi-fit Arc4 foil provides a close shave.
Long beards may require trimming before use, as the razor may tug slightly on longer hairs.
We love the maneuverability of the pivoting head on this model. Users are able to reach those tough angles on the face without sacrificing any shaving power. The 14,000 cuts per minute motor equals the most powerful Panasonic motors.
While the pivoting head helps with chin and face angles, some users report it makes it more difficult to get a close shave on their neck area.
A 13,000 cuts per minute motor provides good power to this smaller Panasonic model. The pivoting head offers great maneuverability, especially in a model this size. Waterproof for wet and dry shaving.
Users with larger faces may find this model too slow for their liking.

An electric razor can give you a clean shave in less time than a manual shaver. Electronics giant Panasonic has a wide selection of electric razors that are rich in features. Rotary shavers have round heads that work well on thick hair. Foil shavers are better for everyday use because they have a thin layer of foil protecting your face from the blades. Important considerations when buying an electric razor are the number of blades, which can impact how close of a shave you get, and how long the battery lasts before needing a charge. If you like to shave in the shower, then the electric razor needs to be cordless and water-resistant. Panasonic’s shaver heads come in larger and smaller sizes to accommodate different faces.
