Giving yourself a close shave doesn’t have to feel like performing delicate surgery. We powered up these cordless electric razors to see which models make the cut.
4. Remington Super Rotary SR9130
Don’t let the name fool you. Apart from price, this budget razor has very little “super” going for it. It’s comfortable enough and has an easy-to-read LCD to display battery life. The one-hour run time per charge is nice; unfortunately, it’s also a necessity. These titanium-coated blades took about twice as long as anything else we tested for a half-decent shave. We couldn’t get fully satisfactory results even after multiple passes over day-old stubble.
get-gadget Cheap. Heads can be washed in sink. Partial charge takes only five minutes.
TIRED Bulkiest of the bunch. Heads aren’t nearly as flexible as the Philips rotary shaver. Pop-up beard trimmer is duller than a tax appointment and doesn’t lock in place. Full charge takes 90 minutes. $80, Remington
