If you are a man that has been using a disposable razor to shave with but are considering buying an electric one, because there are so many different ones available today, you may be a little confused as to which one to buy. Due to environmental concerns, many men are making the decision to turn to electric razors to shave with. The environmentalists are concerned that as there are over two billion disposable razors thrown out each year, they are taking up a lot of space in landfills and as they are not bio-degradable, they will remain in these landfills, never decomposing. Of course you may just be considering the change because electric shavers are often far easier and faster to shave with, not to mention convenience. Electric razors are not as messy as disposable razors either, as there is no need to use foam, let alone leave it all over the bathroom.
No electric razor is likely to give you as closer shave as your disposable would but there again a disposable only gives you about 2 or 3 shaves whilst the electric razor will last you for about a year. Of the two major types available the best electric razor for men is very much dependent on what you want. Some razors need to be connected by cord in order to work whilst most though are battery operated. There is a choice as or whether you want dry only shaves or whether you may want a wet and dry shaver that you can use in the shower but probably the most common factor taken into consideration when people are looking to buy an electric razor, is the life of the battery that it holds. Some electric razors, obviously of the types that are battery operated, having varying battery life’s and this can be an important factor as you may not want to have to charge your razor too often, especially if you want to keep it in your car or in your office, which many people do. Although many people on at least one occasion may forget to recharge their battery, regardless of how long it lasts, that isn’t a major concern as most of the razors will provide one decent shave with just a few moments charging but if you may be on the road for a few days at a time, a long lasting battery may be very important for you. Some of the longer lasting batteries may last for up to perhaps 12 to 14 shaves without having to be recharged.
The two main types of electric razor are those that are called foil razors and those that are called rotary head razors and of these, the foil razor is probably best suited to shaving longer hair whilst the rotary razor usually, will afford the closer shave. Either type though would probably give you a close enough shave for daily purposes but some people do opt to keep a disposable razor available, for one of those special occasions, using it after they have shaved with their electric one, for a smoother finish.
