Sure, shaving accessories like self-cleaning stands, high-RPM heads, and gaggles of trimmer attachments are cool and all, but not everybody needs or wants all that. For anyone that's just looking for a solid shave without a bunch of bells and whistles, check out the Remington F5800.
What Is It?
A wireless electric razor with a three-stage linear head that de-stubbles your face.
Who's it For?
Guys that don't necessarily shave everyday but want a close, expedient trim when they do, without the bother of wetting their faces.
Butch chic. The wide black body is split by a dark grey insert that holds the chrome power button and either a "fuel gauge" (as the tested unit did) or a digital readout of the remaining battery life in the 7800 model. It's pivoting head is accented with chrome while the head foils are coated in "diamond-like" carbon that reportedly reduces friction and the resulting skin irritation.
The razor can be used either left- or right-handed but is really wide and takes some getting used to—definitely a bit wider than the Braun Series 7 we recently tested but not awkwardly so. The trimmer is about an inch wide, which is handy when trying to square off sideburns in one go.
