Better than my Panasonic ES4029
In comparison, even though this was on sale from Myer at Eastland Ringwood, I bought this because my ES4029 was dying and the built-in battery was losing its charge. This Braun was double the price of that of the Panasonic. Being a Braun, this as the Series 3 ProSkin 3010s, I had assumed its reputation to be better than the Panasonic version?... hmm.. yes and no.
What I like about it:
(1) The charging cable plugs directly into the back of the shaver... its too easy and the cord is quite long giving you a fair bit of leeway. By comparison...to the Panasonic where it has a docking station, was bad because it didn't stick onto the charging port properly and kept falling off... instead had to use a cup or another solid object to stop it from doing so. (2) The battery life lasts longer than my older shaver that only lasted a day if you were lucky. The Braun lasts at least 4+ days depending on its uses, even though Braun claims that a single charge lasts for a week. (3) Supposedly allows you to shave in wet and dry conditions... have not tried the wet yet
Questions & Answers
my son said it is not shaving he has tried but hair remains?????
Sadly there's no solution. It's an extremely, badly-made, inferior device.
NOTHING you do or don't do can fix it. All I can suggest is get in quick (before your return/refund period expires) and see if you can get your money back.
In several decades of being a buyer and consumer I'd have to say this device comes in at the top of my list for "Worst Purchase Ever".
This is truly baffling. I have been using this shaver for several months and it is perfectly fine. Indeed, if you see hundreds of reviews everywhere everybody is happy. Perhaps it needs a bit of cleaning. Just remove the foil/cutter cassette, wash it in hot water and then reattach. Is there a visible vibration when you remove the cutter cassette? If not, there might be some damage and you should contact your supplier.
Do the cutting elements have to be replaced and if so how often with daily use? Any ideas?
Hi Ivan, I'm not sure. I've only had the shaver for about 6 weeks now so it's too early to tell. I don't recall the manual mentioning anything about replacing the cutting elements.
