Dynamo Personal Shaver Review

eco_friendly_face_shaver (2)

What Is It
When you’re regularly on-the-go, it can be difficult to keep up with your regular personal care routines. In cases, you might not have the plug-ins you need, or you might accidentally forget the charging cord. In some cases, maybe you’re camping or don’t want to fight to get at the electricity. Either way, the Dynamo Personal Shaver can easily save you the issue of worrying about electricity when you’re on-the-go.

Slim and very portable, this shaver can be powered by USB or AC power, and it’s entirely rechargeable. Instead of just relying on electricity, though, this personal shaver has a built-in hand crank. This hand crank allows you to charge the shaver by turning the crank – so no electricity is even required! For those that do a lot of camping or just want to reduce their carbon footprint, this is a good way to still use an electric shaver while not relying on electricity.

Charging the internal battery doesn’t require too much effort. The shaver also comes with a smart protection chip in order to protect the battery from over-charging and overload, so you don’t have to worry as much about accidentally letting it charge too much. Fully charged, the shaver can shave for 40 minutes and trim for 30 minutes. Using the USB port, it takes about 5 hours to charge, and using the AC adapter will require 3-4 hours (depending on your voltage). If using the handcrank, expect to get 45 seconds of shaving time for every minute that you crank. That means that 3 minutes of cranking could get you all that you need in order to do your shaving in the morning!

For easy cleaning of the shaver, the shaver heads come apart from the body to allow you to clean underneath and around them. Along with that, this personal groomer also comes a protection cap that keeps the shaver from accidentally getting clogged or cutting anything in your luggage.

My Opinion
I really love how versatile this personal shaver is. You don’t have to really feel tied down to electric sources. But everything is really flexible. You can charge it via USB or AC power if that’s what you have. You don’t have to charge it at all while traveling because of its rechargeable battery, so you can just charge it before your trip. Or you can not worry about it at all since you can always use the the equipped hand crank to power the personal shaver. It gives you a lot of options.

When it comes to actually using it, my partner gave me some feedback. He says it does a pretty decent job. He says it’s not as close of a shave as his other shaver gives, but considering his other shaver is an expensive shaver, that makes sense. He says that it definitely works just fine though as long as you don’t need the closest shave possible.

He says that cranking the personal shaver wasn’t too difficult either. He recommends against going too “nuts” with it while cranking because it could possibly break or harm the shaver, but he’s never had any issue with the cranking. It cranks just fine, and it even makes a pretty nifty (and not too loud) whoosing noise that makes it sound even more neat. He finds that about 3/4 minutes gives all of the power that he needs to shave thoroughly for a morning.

Cleaning the personal shaver actually works pretty well as well. Since the blades pop away from the shaver itself, you can clean underneath the blades to keep them from getting clogged. The manufacturer recommends changing out the blades themselves every two years, and with the including cleaning brush, it’s pretty simple to clean out any of the hair from the blades.

The Dynamo Personal Shaver is also pretty lightweight and easy to carry around. It doesn’t take up a huge amount of space, and it’s pretty small. He says that the protection cap can fall off sometimes, and it doesn’t seem as “clipped on” as he’d like. It’s easy to get the protection cap off, but he says that it’s caused it to come off when he doesn’t want it to as well. He says it’s a minor point, though, but it’s something to consider.

Pros
The Dynamo Personal Shaver gives you a wide arsenal of ways to charge up the battery to ensure that you can get a shave at any point. It’s affordable, and it gives a pretty decent shave. It’s also is really light-weight and easy to keep around for camping.

Cons
The Dynamo Personal Shaver may not give you as close of a shave as you’re used to. The protection cap also sometimes comes off when it’s in storage, so don’t 100% rely on the cap to stay on.

Recommended
If you regular travel, go camping often, or just want to reduce your dependence on electricity, this shaver is a fantastic choice. It’s not perfect, but it’s still extremely good, and it will allow you to get a decent shave with a plethora of options on how to recharge the shaver for your next shave.

You can purchase the Dynamo Personal Shaver straight from Amazon.
