What customers say about "Key Specs"
Remington F5-5800 Foil with Interceptor Shaving Technology
  • This is a flex foil shaver, and for me it shaves significantly closer than the rotary shaver I'd been using over these three years.
  • I purchased this shaver on a whim - was curious about how well a foil shaver would do, Overall, I really like it!
  • This razor is not wet dry but is rinseable so the small amount of water and soap doesn't hurt a thing. Amazing. Best shave I've ever had.
  • The charger works very fast and holds it charge for an entire week.
  • The shaver washes up easily.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Remington F5-5800 Foil with Interceptor Shaving Technology
  • The small size of the shaver makes it very to carry around.
  • Its size is probably due to the large battery. All in all, a good purchase and it was indeed a great traveling companion.
  • Its a great size and weight, the flex head is really nice, especially shaving my head. the angles can get tricky, that helps a lot.
  • Weight is fine and grip comfortable.
  • The size issue is peculiar since the power converter is actually on the line cord. I would have expected a smaller body.
