From the negative side
In my little experience, the razors can literally pull whiskers out of your face but this only happens if you have a very thick and dense facial hair.
I have heard a series of complain about the razors being defective that is why I have recommended applying a drop of fine machine oil on it.
To be honest with you, all other shavers pretty works in the same way.
Battery Life and Charging
Remington F5-5800 offers a longer battery life expectancy for those who a long time to shave their facial hair. For each two hours charge made allows the shaver to last for 60 minutes giving you the advantage of not charging frequently.
F5-5800 operates cordlessly by depending on the built-in battery which makes it be flexible and versatile in terms of powering. But that doesn’t mean that it only operates cordlessly because you can also use the shaver with a cord for continuous operation. This cord operation is specifically designed for an immediate shave. The charger can be used anywhere across the world.
Maintenance and Wash
Remington F5-5800 has a wet water feature which makes it easy to clean under the faucet. But be aware that it is not fully waterproof. Use the cleaning brush only if you use the shaver for dry shaving. For thorough cleaning, remove the shaving head and put it under the faucet. Ensure that it is totally dry before you fix it back on the shaver.
The F5-5800 is not suitable for wet shaving because it is not recommended to be used with a shaving gel or cream. It is meant to be cleaned manually because it lacks an automatic cleaning station which makes it budget-friendly.
