This shaver is a god send, due to knee problems, it's a problem to stand long enough to shave my legs the conventional way with shaving cream, water and a razor. This shaver allows me to sit and get my legs done in far less time than an "old style" shave would take. I got this razor in January, charged it up as specified and have now used it 5 or 6 times on that original charge and I'm 5'11" tall with a 36" inseam and heavy legs, so it's like the energizer bunny - keeps on going. I have charged it twice since I initially bought it with a weekly shave on those long legs. Was not overly keen on the colors offered, got the pink, would prefer a nice green or even a white, beige - just not a pink person. I've owned one other "electic" razor and it too was a winner. Why have I messed with razors that cut and make me bleed, messy shaving creams & water all these years? This is a total winner.
