Best Men’s Electric Shaver in India

An electric shaver has now become a necessary gadget in a man’s grooming cabinet. Guys find it hard as it is to get time from their daily routine, and with the advent of the distaste for the 5’0 clock shadow, shaving seems like a big pain in the butt for most guys. Thankfully, someone out there invented electric shavers for us and we can’t thank them enough.

The Best Electric Shaver for Most People in India

The Braun Series 3 3040 is the best priced shaver in India with enough features to give you a smooth shave without any hassles and also last long.
Pros
  • Inexpensive
  • Gives a closer cut than other shavers in this range
  • Very easy to use
Cons
  • No charging station
  • No physical buttons

The Braun Series 3 3040 is the best electric shaver among the Indian options. Priced currently at Rs. 4,899/-, it offers an ideal electric shaving experience while being economically priced in an attractive body.

The Braun Series 3 is meant to be affordable to everyone. It uses Sensofoil technology with a triple action cutting system to give you an easy shave without grabbing onto your hair and pulling at your face. It also has built-in skin conditioners to offer you less skin irritation as well.

Though it has fewer features than the Braun 9 or 7 Series and if you have the cash to afford the Braun premium lines go for it, but if you can only afford the Series 3, you’ll still be getting a great shaver.

On use, we had no real issues with the shaver. It provided a very close shave at first. In my opinion nearly on par with using blades but the difference was negligible. It has an ergonomic design with the blue portion of the shaver is rubberised to ensure that it doesn’t slip from the hand even if it’s wet.

It is 100% washable which means it can be submerged underwater up to 5 metres and it will still work.

It charges fully in one hour which will give about 45 minutes of continuous shaving. If the battery runs out, a five-minute charge is enough to give you a one time shave. A LED light on the shaver gives an indication of whether charging is required or not.

Although it is not perfect as in some instances I needed multiple passes over the same area to get a close shave. This did not lead to razor burn but it did leave the skin a little more dry than I would have liked. But all in all, this little hassle is worth the convenience offered by the Braun Series 3 shaver and the value it provides at this price.

Braun Series 7 790cc Electric Foil Shaver with Clean and Charge station
The Braun Series 7 790cc is the best-priced shaver in India with enough features to give you a smooth shave with any hassles and also last long.
Pros
  • Automatic cleaning and charging dock
  • Waterproof
  • Durable – will lasted longer than other shavers
  • Gives a closer shave compared to other shavers
Cons
  • Replacement foils are expensive

The Braun Series 7 790cc  is a top shaver in the Braun line with more features than the Series 3 and Series 5. It is expensive than most shavers but it is designed to last for years and to be a one-stop-shop for all your shaving needs. It offers men the ultimate grooming experience.

The face of this shaver has 3 trimmers. Two of them are called “OptiFoil” and one of them is called “ActivLift”. The OptiFoil trimmers help the electric shaver to cover more facial hairs in fewer strokes while the ActiveLift helps to cut out the short and in-grown hairs.

The shaver is completely waterproof. It is easy to hold and has rubberised sides to grip comfortably when wet. The head of the shaver is flexible and allows you to adjust as you shave across your face. The cleaning part, which usually involves quite a bit of a headache, is very simple thanks to alcohol-based cleaning and charging station. There is also a pop-up trimmer for trimming beards, moustache, and sideburns. The shave is remarkable. It is quick, comfortable and amazingly close.

The shaver has an LCD display to show exactly how much battery is left which is one the most advanced systems in any shaver. There is an electronic indicator at the bottom to show if the foil needs to be replaced or if the shaver is just dirty which is a very useful feature not found in most other shavers.

There are some negatives. The cleaning-charging system seems a little funky and the travel case is very flimsy. The replacement foils are also expensive, so when you do have to replace them after a couple of years, it might cost you more compared to other shavers. Further, it is expensive than other shavers around.

But overall, the Braun Series 7 790cc is hands down one of the best shaver you can buy in India if money is not an issue for you.

Pros
  • Value for money
  • Wet/dry shaving
  • Perfect size and design
Cons
  • Battery – lasts only 30 minutes

The Philips Aquatouch AT620/14 is one of the most popular electric shavers in India. Considering its price point, this razor works well. It gives you a nice clean close-cut shave without any hassle. It’s washable (not to be confused with being able to use it in the shower). It has a battery range of about 30 minutes while using cordless which is not too bad considering the price.

Quick facts:

  • Corded or 30 minutes of cordless use
  • Wet and dry shaving
  • One touch open – shaver can be easily rinsed clean under the tap
  • Additional pop-out trimmer
  • 2-year worldwide guarantee

Buy this only if you do not have the money to spend on the Braun shavers. Electric shavers are expensive in India for a variety of reasons and the lower priced ones sacrifice on quality and battery charge. You would be better off with a trimmer and a shaving razor for your grooming needs.

Criteria for selecting an Electric Shaver

Buying a shaver is not a one-fit-all solution but rather a personal where everyone has their own preferences. We tested shavers according to the following criteria:

Foil or Rotary

Foil shavers have a linear, thin layer of blades that are covered by metal to provide a smooth and very close shave. They are ideal for men with sensitive skin, short hair, and who shave daily.

Rotary shavers use a spinning mechanism that goes around in a circle, removing the hairs in between. They are designed in an intricate way to match the contours of the face and they provide a great shave. These are ideal for men who do not shave daily, have thicker and longer facial hair, and who do not want a very close shave.

Battery Life & Charging Speed

The battery life of a shaver is important because you want to be able to use it when you want without having to charge it every minute of the day. All the products listed here are great on battery life and will provide you with an ample amount of time for use compared to the time needed for charging.

Features

Shavers are judged on a variety of features ranging from whether they are cordless or with a cord or whether they have a wet and dry feature which allows you to shave when your skin is wet. Since these are not uniform in all the shavers, we take into account all relevant ones and compare them with a cost-benefit focus to come to a conclusion whether the feature warrants the cost along with it.

Why only Braun shavers on top?

Braun is the #1 electric shaving company in the world. It is based in Germany and their unique selling point is making well-made shavers at a decent price. They are in business for a century and are well known for their quality.
