Panasonic Arc 5


Panasonic has always held its own ground amongst the elite of the electronics world. Their newly developed Panasonic ES8243A electric shaver holds up to that same standard. Men across the world are achieving a closer and quicker shave than previously achieved. In easy terms, what they have done is take the standard 30 degree blade and use new nanotechnology to achieve a closer cutting angle. Between the improved blading and included features, the Panasonic ES8243A provides a more unique shave than other razors.

One of the things that has been done – is that the cutting area has been expanded by as much as 32% which helps to give a more precise shave and alleviate skin irritations. In addition they have included a fourth blade which provides the capability to conqueror the thickest of beards with ease and quickness. And lastly the Panasonic ES8243A has arc shaped blades to hug the skin which allows the user to experience the closer shave.

Now let’s move on to the feature that gives this shaver its uniqueness, the linear motor. Most razors operate somewhere between 8,000 and 10,000 rpm’s. But with this motor users can experience a 3,000 to 5,000 rpm increase over the standard razors because the ES8243A operates at 13,000 rpm with the Dry feature.

However, if you are in the shower and want to “kill two birds with one stone” then you can also use this shaver with its wet technology providing 17,000 rpm. Simply place the razor under the water and select turbo and boom you have gone from zero to sixty in a few seconds. What can be better than that?

In addition to these fantastic technology features, it also comes with a travel case, a battery charge indicator and a reminder as to when cleaning is needed.

So what can be said about the Panasonic ES8243A? Everything! It is simple to use, has enhanced technology, provides a closer and more precise shave and gives thick beards a run for their money.
