About the product
The Braun Series 3 ProSkin rechargeable electric foil shaver/razor provides faster shaving with great skin comfort*. The 3 pressure-sensitive shaving elements adapt to every facial contour and the specialised Micro Grip capture more hairs in the first stroke.
The Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Nanotech Blades for men delivers close, precision shaving with three ultra-sharp stainless-steel blades, each honed to a 30° edge, plus ultra-thin Arc foil to conform smoothly to the contours of the face, chin and neck for outstanding comfort. The electric razor's flexible pivoting head glides effortlessly along the skin for even, consistent results. The Panasonic ES8103S is equipped with a linear motor drive that maintains continuous 13,000 cpm power for a consistently quick, clean and even shave, no matter how thin, thick or unruly your beard is. And for total convenience, the ES8103 electric shaver is 100% washable to provide a close, gentle shave dry or in the shower, and a precision pop-up trimmer adds the perfect detail to beards, mustaches and sideburns. A 10-stage LCD in the shaver's handle shows battery status, charge indicator and cleaning and a replacement reminder for blades and foil. Cleaning this electric razor for men is quick and simple. Just rinse the Panasonic Arc3 razor under running water to easily remove stubble, leaving the blades and foil fresh and renewed. And for shaving away from home, this advanced shaving machine comes with universal voltage, AC adaptor/charger and a travel pouch.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Men's Electric Shaver
  • The foil and blades last for a very long time.
  • New foils and blades are easy to find and replace also.
  • It is washable and the blade is sharp enough for me.
  • The shaver is also washable, making it very easy to clean and stay fresh
  • Dry/Wet feature - I usually avoid wet shaving with an electric razor because my hair is usually too soft and doesn't cut well. This razor works for me wet, almost as well as dry!

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Men's Electric Shaver
  • The size is good because anything wider ( like the 4 or 5 blade razors) would be too wide.
  • The shaver does ok, small size I like gets into tight spots.
  • It's a nice hefty weight that seems consistent with the quality I would expect for the price point.
  • It is light weight and elegant yet does a very manly job of shaving close without damaging my skin.
  • However, the shaver itself seems cheaper from a material.

What customers say about "Control"
 
Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Men's Electric Shaver
  • It takes about an hour to get a full charge, and I get multiple shavings from a single charge.
  • The LED battery level display is a nice practical touch the prevents surprise dead batteries.
  • LED display still works, I get about 8 shaves per charging.
  • The quick charge feature, 5 minute charge to get 1 shave, is nice for when you're in a rush and the shaver is dead.
  • The battery is pretty solid, a full charge gets me at least 4 shaves or so.
