Many of us are always on the go, and we need an electric shaver that will travel along in order to maintain our groomed and shaved looks. There are a lot of travelling shavers that end up being cheap while still performing. These aren’t as good as high end shavers, but if you do proper research, you may be pleasantly surprised.
While travelling, we need a shaver that is portable, lightweight, safe to transport and convenient to use. Most cheap electric shavers out there may be a bad choice, since many aren’t able to give you a close shave, especially if you have thick hair or sensitive skin.
Throughout this article we will recommend the best portable electric shavers we reviewed, and though everyone has a different type of skin and hair, we think our users will be happy with these recommendations overall.
So, let’s go over travelling shavers with AA batteries and Electric shavers with a rechargeable battery.
Best AA Battery Operated Shavers:
The Panasonic ES3831K Travel Shaver comes quite cheaply, and for that price you can’t ask for more, it is tough and excellent for people with sensitive skin that want to avoid razor burns when on the go.
It isn’t packed with great perks, as you may suspect, but it gets the work done with its hypoallergenic blade and stainless steel foil. Its floating heads adjust to your face’s structure and can be used for both dry and wet shaves. Its motor speed is of 8.500 cycles per minute and the foil is designed for short hairs only, so don’t expect to shave a huge bushy beard with it.
Braun M90 Mobile:
This is the most popular travelling shaver that is AA battery operated, and it is partially due to its simple and reliable attributes that give you a sensitive shave that is full of convenience. This is intended for short hair as well, so you should shave regularly. People with thick hair might want to go for a better model.
It has a trimmer for your moustache and sideburns and it has a foldable cap to avoid damage when on your backpack or luggage.
Phillips Norelco PQ208/40 Travel Shaver:
The Norelco PQ208/40 is a great compact shaver that has self-sharpening blades and a really great design that enables easy transportation. It is focused on performance and travelling perks, so it leaves some features like wet shaving and trimmers behind.
This one will give you amazing value for your money and it also presents itself as a good option for those with sensitive skin – it also adapts to your face, making it easier to shave those hard to reach spots.
Travelling Shavers with Rechargeable Battery:
Remington R-91 Rotary Travel Shaver:
This is the Remington’s best selling shaver in Europe, and though it is a bit pricier than the shavers previously recommended, it is worth the money.
When it comes to travelling, I tend to recommend AA battery operated shavers because they take all the hassles of charging up away, but this shaver gives you such a good cut in a single pass, as well as making contouring so easy, that I had to include it on this list.
Its independent floating heads will make shaving the neck and jaw line easy.
Tips for Travelers with Thick Beards:
Those of you who have thick hairs might be disappointed with these shavers, and quite frankly we know it is tough to get a good travelling shaver when your hair is thick. If you don’t intend to shave daily, then we recommend you to forget about these shavers and get high-end shavers only. They are bulky and may be expensive, but it is your only choice.
