Anyway, I have tried and tested many electric shavers, although when I say electric I mean rechargeable or battery operated shavers, coming across some that shave close to the skin and some that should not legally be called a shaver as they either cut your face to ribbons or leave more hair on your face that you first started with.
Fortunately, over my manly years of shaving my face I’ve come across some rather fine shavers, such as Remington, Philips and a rather fine little machine from the company we all know as Braun, with the shaver itself from the Braun 7 series, being called the Braun series 7-720.Firstly
can I tell you a few little bits about this Braun 7-720...
- It has what they call Optifoil covering the three cutting heads.
- It has Sonic technology which means it produces more pulses with every stroke.
- Offers three shaving options, sensitive, normal and intense
- Senso Flex head which claims to give 6 times more comfort than a standard shaver head.
So that’s the technical mumbo jumbo over with, I would say technical bits but there’s no real technical bits to it.What does it look like..?
It looks like any other shaver really with it’s black plastic casing and silver foil head, although it comes in a silver body as well as black.
There is a rather fine little LCD display on the bottom of it which shows you the battery status, showing a red battery image for low battery and a green battery image for, yes you guessed it, a full battery. With a display of approximately how long you’ve got left on the battery before it need recharging.On the front
, so to speak, there are what look like three buttons, which are the actual controls for the three shaving options, with a ’+’ and a ’-’ button on the sides of what looks like a small cursor button. This cursor button gives you the indication as to what setting you have chosen, turning from blue to white depending on the sensitivity of the shave you have chosen.
The actually ’sensitively’ controls simple speed up, or slow down the rate of the heads under the foils. Using the shaver…
Before the first shave it is recommended to fully charge the shaver, which takes about an hour, but on a full charge you will get about 45 minutes of shaving power. But after this initial charging ceremony you can simple charge it up if and when required.
Plus, it can also be used direct from the mains for when you need a shave but have forgotten to charge it up.
But once charged, or plugged in, you simply use it as a you would any other shaver, flick it on and press the foil heads against your face, feeling the vibration as the shaver does it’s business.
That’s it, it’s so simply so there’s no need to get yourself a degree in rocket technology and informational necessities… Cleaning the shaver…
To clean this you can do one of two things.
I like to have a wet shave most of the time, although when I’m out and about, usually for work purposes, I tend to like the have an electric shaver with me so that I can have a shave when ever I want I need one, due to the fact that I feel a little more, well, confident, when my face is clean shaven, or is that just me?
