Norelco Shaver's 9800 Benefits

It Comes with a Beard Styler

If for the longest you have sought out a trimmer that can serve the dual purpose of effortlessly achieving your desired style while at the same time protecting you from skin irritation then this beard trimmer is your best bet. First, it comes with a Smartclick Beard Styler attachment that will help you experiment with 5 length attachments to achieve the exact length you are looking for. So you are covered whether you want your finished look to have stubbles or just a close shave. It is also fitted with rounded blades and combs to prevent the skin from facing some irritation.

It is not Affected By exposure to Water

A good electric shaver should give you the option to use it dry or wet. For this shaver, you will benefit from the AquaTech wet and dry seal that will enable you to choose whether you want to use it while on the dry setting or when you feel like you want to lather your face with foam or gel for a wet shave. The fact that it is waterproof also means that cleaning it is a very fast and easy process as once you are done with it, you can just place it under running water for a quick and simple cleaning process. 

It Traces the Nature of the Contours on Your Face

You will agree with me that our faces are shaped differently and so we can’t all get the same results from the same shavers. To overcome this problem, this electric shaver is fitted with a ContourDetect Technology that enables it to trace the contours of the face in eight different directions. This means that every single area that you will focus the shaver on, it will ensure that the hairs located in those areas are reached and trimmed. In the end, you will be able to get a very polished look on your face defined with a close smooth shave.

Personalized Settings Option

Most electric shaver sin the market today comes with settings that cannot be altered to fit individual needs. Not for this hair trimmer, as it comes with the option for you to adjust its settings to fit your own personal preferences. The settings you can choose from are sensitive, Normal or Fast. You can choose the gentle settings in case you have very sensitive skin and you want to protect it. If you are in for an everyday shave then you can opt for the Normal settings. And if you are in a rush then the fast option will work just fine for you.

It is fitted with an Efficient Blade System

The blades that are used in any hair trimmer play a very big role in determining whether they will meet your needs efficiently. As expected, this hair trimmer does not deviate from this norm as it is designed with a V-track premium blade system. The System works by gathering the hairs together in s bunch for the best cutting position before it trims them as per your preferences based on the settings you had programmed on it. It is also interesting that these blades are self-sharpening and so will serve you for a very long time before the need to replace them arises. Something else that makes it a very efficient electric shaver is the fact that it has a dual blade system whereby one blade lifts the hairs while the other cut them to precision for an accurate and close shave.

Norelco Shaver's 9800 Cons

- It discharges as fast as it charges. This means that you will need to ensure that it is fully charged every time you embark on using it otherwise you might end up being deeply inconvenienced.

- It does not come with a brush for cleaning it. I find this to be a major drawback because most of the times some cut hairs tend to get stuck in between the machine head and accumulate dirt. Thus to remove them you need a good brush that you can use to remove them during cleaning.

- Some users cite that over time the shaving quality that you can expect to get from the shaver declines and so you need to seek a replacement for it.

- Storing its accessories is also quite a task as, in most cases, the charger and the clip on the head do not fit in the case that comes with it. 



I recommend this hair shaver as it comes with very good features like the V-track premium blade system that will see to it that you have a very smooth shave, the flexible settings that you can adjust to your personal preferences and the contour tracing technology that it is designed with. Therefore, although it has its own drawbacks I feel they are nothing compared to its benefits. So it is definitely worth a try.
