It’s rated as being 100% waterproof to a depth of five metres, so perfectly fine to use it in the shower or bathtub.

Braun Series 9 9290CC Wet & Dry Electric Shaver for Men with Clean & Charge SystemI’m a bit of a fan of Braun electric shavers for men, and it would be amiss of me if I didn’t include this elite 9 Series model in the “best of” list. It’s currently selling for $300 on Amazon and rates well over a 4 star average in the Amazon reviews.

Once again the Braun 9290CC comes with the clean and renew charging station, keeping your shaver clean and fresh and looking like new. Activate the pop up trimmer for trimming long hairs, or simply to keep some stubble for that growth look. The LED display will always keep you informed about the state of your shaver, whether it requires charging or cleaning.

    I think I may have a difficult question you may not have an answer to. So I am 22 years old but grow facial hair very quickly.

    I am constantly on the go and staying with friends on the weekends. I have to bring my razor to shave because I actually look that bad with facial hair.

    Due to this I think I have done a lot to kill the battery on my razor. It barely makes it through my whole face on a full charge now.

    Do one of the razors you listed work best to be very durable with constant travel. I am not sure if that was what caused the battery issues or just time.

    What do you think?

      Hi Brad. Batteries in shavers will wear out after many charges and uses. What brand shaver is it?

      I’ve always been a fan of the Braun range, and if you have the budget for it, buying a Braun 7 Series or 9 Series shaver is well and truly worth the money. They last for years and the batteries stay charged for a least a week in my experience.
