Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver (Men’s Electric Razor) Review

Remington Shaver Company is manufacturing different kinds of shaver for over 75 years. They are well known for lower prices. They try to improve the quality of their products every year. Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver is one of them.

I love cordless electric razors because of the convenience they bring when you don't have a power source close to you.

A razor with both corded and cordless functionality is even better. That is what the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver has precisely to offer.

It has a dual power source feature that will allow you to use it either plugged or unplugged. Apart from the wireless convenience, there are lots of things to benefit from this innovatively designed piece of technology since it has lots of advanced features to offer, which will change the way you shave.

If you use it in cordless mode, the Remington F5-5800 will last for a whopping 60 minutes with a full charge. That is more than what many of its competitions can continue with a full charge. What is even more impressive is that you only have to charge it for an hour until it is fully charged. That means that with a single charge it would go for up to two weeks, depending on how frequent and how long you shave.

Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver Standout features:

  • Intercept Shaving Technology Pre trims longer hairs
  • Pivot and Flex Foil Technology Stays close to the skin for smooth results.
  • Pop up Detail Trimmer For finishing touches on your facial hair and sideburns
  • 60 minutes of cordless runtime
  • Easy to Clean & washable
