Cheap, and it shows
I bought this razor because the price was good and it looked like it did what I wanted. Also, because my last razor had expensive foils that were easily damaged I wanted to move to one of the more robust three head models.
I should have know better that to buy at the budget end of the range. I know that you get what you pay for but this razor has so many design faults that it should have been illegal to sell it! No, that's not true but there are some major design flaws.
Firstly, the button that releases the hair trimmer blade it far to easily hit during normal shaving. If you don't consciously remember to hold the razor in a certain way the hair trimmer will pop up. Secondly, the battery charge/recharge indication is really bad. There is no battery charge indication so the only way that you know the battery needs charging is when it starts slowing down half way through a shave. During charging a green LED will show and will remain on regardless of how long the razor is left on charge. It does not take much electronics to have a battery status indication but obviously they stripped the component count of this model down to the barest minimum. And lastly, the charger has a proprietary connector that I have never seen before. And as an electronics technician I have seen a lot of connectors! This makes it hard to replace the plug or charger if needed, and makes it harder to modify the razor for twelve volt operation. The razor needs a 4.7 volt DC supply, which is another mark against it since it is not one of the commonly used power supply voltages.
