What Are the Best Electric Razors For Men?

That’s not an easy question to answer because it depends on many factors. What is the perfect electric razor for one person may be totally unsuitable for someone else and this could be due to differing skin types, having soft or hard whiskers or desiring a different closeness of shave.

However, there are two very important factors that need to be considered – features and price. Modern electric shavers have a wide variety of features, some of which may or may not be deemed necessary to everyone, depending on your expectations. Of-course, the more advanced features usually add to the cost of the razor.

Which are the best men’s electric razors?

There are numerous different brands of electric razors including Panasonic, Braun, Sunbeam, Remington and Philips to name a few. After some research into the wide range of men’s electric shavers available, I have found three that really stand out above the rest. They are:

* Philips Norelco Arcitec 1090;

* Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic Shaver and

* Panasonic ES8249K Arc IV Nano Vortex.

Let’s look at some of the features of these three electric razors.

1. Philips Norelco Arcitec 1090 Men’s Shaving System

If you like high tech design, then this Norelco electric razor is for you. It is one of the coolest looking shavers on the market. It is a rotary head shaver that has the ability to conform to the contours of your face to give you a very close shave. It also comes with a 60 day money back guarantee for peace of mind.

2. Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver

These braun electric razors are also high tech but in a different way. It produces several thousand “micro vibrations” per minute which help to lift the hairs for easy cutting. The Braun also uses very advanced blade technology which minimises any tugging and pulling of the whiskers and also gives a very close shave. A really cool feature is that with the press of a button the shaver will automatically clean and lubricate itself.

3. Panasonic ES8249K Arc IV Nano Vortex

Unlike the other two, this Panasonic electric shaver can be used as a wet or dry shaver. You should consider this shaver if you shave in the shower, for instance. The Panasonic has a very powerful motor and with its extremely sharp blades that are set at the smallest angle of any razor available today so not only do you get a very close shave but it makes light work out of shaving a thick beard.

Naturally, these features are going to reflect in the prices of these electric razors but if price is not an issue and you want the features then any of these would be more than suitable.

Best Value Men’s Electric Razor

But if price is an issue, let’s find a shaver that has a low price but gives excellent value for the dollars spent. To ascertain this I went through many electric shaver reviews and found the shaver that had more positive customer reviews than any other. The one that stood out was one manufactured by Braun. It is their PocketGo P-70 Men’s Electric Shaver with a current retail price of around $30.00. Strictly speaking this shaver is aimed at the traveller and may not be suitable for everyday shaving. It is powered by a couple of AA batteries so it can be used anywhere including your office and even the car. Although it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the more expensive shavers, it is extremely portable and does give quite a close shave.

Like anything, it’s most important that you decide which features you need in a shaver and then look for the best value men’s electric shaver that will fit that need.

“Electricity How” – Is That a Question?

The phrase: “Electricity How” – A conundrum at the least?

According to Google 368,000 searches on the keyword phrase “electricity how” were conducted globally in one month. What are people asking or looking for?

Certainly, electricity is one of the great mysteries.

On the one hand, it is everywhere in our ordinary daily lives. We simply wouldn’t know how to live without it today. Virtually everything we do is powered by electricity.

So, in one sense it is very familiar, and commonplace.

We also know it can be very dangerous, even lethal.

But, what is electricity?

I do not pretend to really understand it. But, I find it fascinating and worthy of discussion and speculation.

To that end, there is a website sited below I find entertaining and stimulating.

One of the missions of this site is to allow people to dialog and speculate and share information and ideas about electricity. Some things will be very down to earth and practical, others very esoteric and almost metaphysical.

This short article is intended to stimulate a discussion and get the ball rolling so to speak. You are invited to participate by leaving comments or contributing guest blogs.

Here are some thoughts from a non-scientist, non-electrician, non-historian, just a humble math teacher.

Our ancestors were vaguely aware of electricity in the form of lightening and static electrical sparks. They also were aware of magnetism via lodestones (were there any other magnetic materials they knew of?). However, they probably didn’t see much connection between these three phenomena. They probably didn’t think these things were very important. Til the house burned down, or the compass failed.

In the 1700’s Ben Franklin began to gain some understanding of electricity to the point he invented the lightning rod and the battery. In fact, one could argue the American Revolution hinged on Ben’s fame as a scientist when he visited France on the Revolution’s behalf.

In the 1800’s the great experimentalist Michael Faraday was the first to demonstrate the intimate connection between electric current and magnetic forces with his discovery of Faraday’s Laws. Then, the great physicist James Clerk Maxwell was able to construct a mathematical model of electromagnetism known as Maxwell’s Equations.

Thus, electricity and magnetism were irrevocably united. Indeed, one can not have one without the other. There is one Electromagnetic force. Magnets move and induce electric current, and current creates magnetic force.

Indeed, Maxwell’s equations became the basis of modern electrical technologies.

Furthermore, Maxwell’s equations yielded the concept of the electromagnetic wave, of which light is just one example. Electromagnetic waves travel at varying frequencies, but with one constant speed which is invariant regardless of the movement of the observer. This speed is called c, the speed of light.

This invariant speed of light in turn led the physicist Albert Einstein to create his famous Theory of Special Relativity in 1905. This totally altered forever our concept of time and space. (General Relativity in 1915 was an even greater tour de force which explained the relationship of mass and gravity to space-time, but that’s another story for another time.)

But, electricity was just getting warmed up!

The best was still ahead.

In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the greatest electrical engineer of all time, Nikola Tesla, applied Maxwell’s equations and invented the AC electric dynamo which became the basis of our modern industrial revolution. The original was of course driven by mechanical and hydraulical (sic) concepts.

Then came the amazing Richard Feynman, et. al.

Quantum mechanics was developed by several great physicists in the early 1900’s. Guys like Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrödinger, and Dirac developed the quite unintuitive theory of quantum mechanics after Max Planck and Einstein made their observations of the quantum nature of light.

But, how did electricity fit in?

Feynman and others developed the first quantum treatment of electricity and light, known as QED, Quantum Electro Dynamics.

Talk about non-intuitive.

What is an electron?

Is it a point or a wave?

No one really knows. Both, neither, or something wholly mysterious?

When measured it seems to be always an infinitesimally small piece of matter with some mass and something called charge, and “spin”.

But, when observed it seems to somehow travel in all possible paths from one point to another simultaneously with most of the paths somehow canceling out. This is indisputable and is what explains many otherwise mysterious phenomena.

Indeed, it can be experimentally verified that an electron somehow passes through two slits at the same time. This is the famous double slit experiment that verifies the amazing quantum equations governing the electron’s behavior

This can probably be best understood by a layman by reading Feynman’s great book, QED. In my opinion, this is the best “look” into the mind of a genius that exists.

If this confuses you, you are in good company. And, I don’t mean “yours truly” even though I don’t pretend to even begin to understand it all.

And, I haven’t even mentioned Bell’s Theorem which is truly mind blowing. I may discuss it and several other ideas in an expanded article on the website.

Oh yes. The better company?

The brilliant physicist of QED fame, Nobel Prize winner, Richard Feynman, said that anyone who claims to understand QED proves they don’t understand it at all. And, He invented it.

The so called “wave” is a mathematical “fiction”. The electron satisfies a mathematical differential equation called the Schrödinger Wave Equation. But, its solutions are what are called complex functions. They don’t really have any intuitive physical interpretation. The Equation just happens to be similar in form to equations that do represent real physical waves. But, in this situation there is nothing physical they model. Their solution is called “amplitudes”, which yield probabilities when “squared”.

So, here we are in the 21st century. Much of our modern technology, think Laser et al, rests on QED, which in turn is a theory we have no real physical understanding of other that what can be described as “weird” physical experiments.

Of course, nature also depends on this weird physics. Recently, it has been discovered that photosynthesis, the basis of all life on earth, depends on a quantum mechanical effect.

God only knows where Bell’s Theorem will lead us. Perhaps Dr. William Tiller’s great ideas will help us. Another discussion for another day.

Well, this article just scratches the surface of addressing the question of “Electricity How”. I don’t even know whether to end it in a period or question mark.

Advantage of an Electric Folding Bike

This is such a big problem especially if you are in a tight budget since gasoline price nowadays are really increasing rapidly. In this case, the best way would be using an electric bike. Aside from having your own vehicle, you will also save a lot of money from using gasoline. From the name itself, this type of bike uses only electricity to be able to make it run.

Though bikes are really a good means of transportation, it still can’t make itself through stiff mountains. Mountain bikers do love to take a ride in stiff places that is why there is a type of bike that really is the best innovation really made from the history of bikes. This innovation is the electric folding bike, it is an electric powered bike and at the same time can be folded to make it accessible to almost all places you wanted to use it. Though folding bikes had already made its name in the market, what is good about this is that it is not only an ordinary bike that is being folded but an electric bike.

In places where flood incidents are most common, electric folding bikes are very useful. Since electric bikes are not advised in such high levels of flood since it will be damaged, then the best way for it is to carry it. In this scenario, it would be a lot easier to carry the electric bike if it is folded making it handy and easy to carry.

Another scenario where an electric folding bike would be of great advantage is when you are stuck in a heavy traffic and you can’t get out of it. The best thing that you can do is have the electric bike folded and then carry them out of the way making yourself at the side of the road. Through this, you will be able to find some alternative routes just to avoid the traffic.

Another good thing about electric folding bike is that you can place them inside your house without consuming too much space in the room. In this way, you are assured you kept your electric bike well and away from being wet by heavy rain.

Electric folding bikes do really have a lot of advantages compared to ordinary electric bikes in the market. In all sides, these electric folding bikes offer the best features that ordinary ones can’t.
