Keep your shaver charged
Here we are discussing another common problem which most users face due to their own doing.

High end shaver’s motor give full power output even if the battery is very low. But its not the case in budget friendly electric razors.
Shavers which are on a budget can give full power output only when the battery is fully charged. So make a habit that you charge your shaver each time after shave is done. Further modern shavers come with Li-ion battery where over charging does not affect battery life. Hence frequent charging is not an issue.

Replacement of head is inexpensive and on top of that the process is child’s play. Most users don’t give much attention to this factor but it needs to be considered if you want agreeable performance from your shaver.
