Philips 8200 series Electric shaver HQ8270/18 With battery level indicator is rated
Rated 3 out of
Excellent but unreliable
My first one lasted nearly two years. It was one of the best shavers I have ever used. Since it died just within the warranty period I was able to get a replacement. Unfortunately that died within about 6 months.
The same problem with both of them: After going through one of the cleaning cycles the "full charge" lights stayed on permanently, discharging the shaver within about 24 hours. No amount of charging or discharging could remedy the situation.
I suspect the problem is a poor water seal so the cleaning fluid gets in an compromises the electronics.
I used another shaver for a while but am contemplating going back to Philips, but hesitate because of this reliability issue.

Confort and close shave .
I have had once a shaver that was not a Phillishave and thought that all electric razors were meant for light beard men and that nothing would shave like a blade until i bought my first Phillishave 28 years ago . I have been a Phillishaver since . I do not care about features as much has i care about close shave and confort . I do appreciate the trimmer .Please correct my writing because i am much more fluent in french .
