Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 Wet Dry Electric Razor
Panasonic has been a trusted shavers brand compared to other products. Especially this ES-LT41-K, which offers a high level of performance and useful features without unnecessary features. Don’t worry, this electric shaver is very versatile so you can use it wet or dry. Moreover, you can use your regular shaving cream with this shaver. The flexible pivoting head allows for a more precise shave around the contours of your face. The pop-up trimmer is effective for the side burns and beard. It does the job very quickly and pretty close.
If you are currently using razor to shave and are intending to change to electric shaver, then this product is the best option. You can find that this shaver can be a lot more comfortable to use, especially on your lip and chin as places where it can feel like your beard is being pulled out, rather than cut, with a razor. You may find you need to shave a little longer than you’d like to, or go over the same spot more than you think you have to. But with a little bit of patience, you can get a remarkably close shave with this shaver.
In addition, the wet or dry construction also makes it easy to clean. Even Panasonic claims this unit can be cleaned with soap and water. So, you can just simply run it under the faucet. Another great thing about this product is its fast charging time (about one hour) and long-life battery. The on/off switch locks also placed well so it can minimize the risk of wasting the battery energy.
Panasonic ES-LV81-K Arc5 Men’s Electric Razor
The ES-LV81 is the successor to the ES-LA93 and a worthy successor it is. Check our list about things Panasonic has improved over the LA93:
- The constantly flashing blue police-cruiser charging light is gone; when the cleaning/charging cycle is complete, the unit goes off (cleaner and shaver).
- The shaver and cleaning station is quieter than the LA93, both in use and during the cleaning cycle.
- A faster shave. The larger head really is functional, and if you already use the LA93 the transition will be smooth. The larger head covers a lot of ground quickly, and will reduce shaving time by 30-40%. There is a shaving timer in the display, helps to improve your shaving technique and speed up to a point of diminishing returns.
All in all, this product is really impressive. The handle is well crafted, and is comfortable even for big hands. It’s more like gently scrubbing your face with a pad rather than shaving, and less irritating since you don’t need to move the head as much over the same area.The edges of the foils are also very accurate to keep your beard in order. Plus, when the blades finally do dull to the point they need to be sharpened or replaced they will be readily available.
Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor
With this product, you can get an unbelievably close shave than any of the prior models and suffer absolutely no irritation whatsoever. If you thought the large head on the LV-61 would be a problem, turned out that this shaver is light, is very comfortable to hold and the head size actually feels good against head, face and neck area. Not only that, this shaver is also great for head shaving too, and the larger head actually makes the shaver ideal for this purpose.
If you’re still unsure about this razor, let me assure you that this is one faboulous machine. The arch isn’t as dramatic so head shaving is not only comfortable as all the foils float, but it’s incredibly effective. The center lift foil is able to lift every single whisker no matter where, no matter how difficult and really does cut below the skin line for a blade quality shave. Absolutely, you have to stretch your skin a bit in troublesome areas to help the 5 blade system work, it pulls the hairs with lightening speed.
The inner and outer blades have to be replaced at least every two years. But, in our opinion it is not necessary to buy the insurance since shavers rarely have gotten past three years. Lastly, although Panasonics may be a bit pricey, but the warranty support (repair/replacement)is more than enough makes up for it.

Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Electric Razor for Men
The remarkable features embedded in this product are effortless shaving, incredibly clear results, fast shaves and quick recharges. Many has claimed this to be close enough to compete with Mach 3. If you are willing to compromise a bit of shave closeness in exchange for zero irritation, then you have to precisely buy this one right away. This shaver claims that it will get a close shave on the first pass. The key is to be gentle and stretch your skin tight to make sure that I get every hair ground down as close as possible; exposing some hard-to-cut hairs, especially on the outer regions and on the adam’s apple.
This razor is one of the easiest to clean, so it will help you saving some money. You’d better pick this model rather than the model with the cleaning station. You’ll get the razor just as clean by cleaning it under the tap (just a couple of drops of liquid soap then rinse it off quickly). Since the razor is built to be used in the shower, you don’t have to be wary as you are with other razors when rinsing it off under the tap.
The shaves are also extremely quick compared to other products. Two and half to three minutes and you’re done which is considered lightning fast. It also has a long lasting charge, right at 13-14 shaves per charge. That’s just a proof of how good this product is.
Panasonic ES-LV95-S Arc5 Electric Razor
Comparing it to the older ES-LA63-S model, they fixed the pivot head slider button so it’s very easy to use. To lock the head, just slide button up instead of the old model that the head had to be aligned. Slide it up more and the trimmer pops up. The trimmer also works great. When ES-LA63-S still missed a few hairs (like 7 hairs) that for some reason it didn’t seem like shaving, this shaver has no problem.
When used several times with gel in shower, this shaver doesn’t encounter any problems. Putting the slightly louder noise aside, it provides a much better shave in less time and has the ability to automatically detect and adjust the cutting speed. What makes this product more lovely is that it is not only wet/dry but can also be used with shaving cream/gel when most can not do this! This shaver is highly recommended especially for someone with a tough beard because so far it has proven true.
With so many features offered, you have to be wise in selecting razor you will end up buying. For example, if your beard is not really coarse or grows slowly, why spend your money for the 5-blades razor, right? Simply select the one that is just perfectly enough, and you’re good to go.
