How to Extend a Shaver’s Battery Life?

 

There are a lot of men out there that struggle with battery problems, they ask around on the web stuff like: “Shaver stops recharging at certain point, what to do?” and “Why does my shaver’s battery falls 20 minutes suddenly?” – these are real concerns we would like to address.

First of all, you may be charging your battery when it still has some power left, so your autonomy hugely drops from the memory effect your battery suffers – also known as the “lazy battery” syndrome.

To make sure your shaver’s battery is always performing at full capacity, we have the duty to know what our battery type is:

  • NiMH or Ni-MH battery doesn’t have memory effect, it lasts a lot;
  • Lithium Ion battery has reduced memory effects and packs a pretty good punch;
  • NiCD or Ni-CD batteries need to be recharged often and suffers a lot from memory effect.

Note that popular models such as the Braun 3 Series and the Panasonic Arc 3 use the Ni-MH battery type, so memory effect won’t be a problem. Most electric shavers have a Lithium ion battery.

In order to maximize your shaver’s battery capacity, follow these tips:

  • Fully discharge your battery prior to recharging, and when you do recharge it, make sure it charges up to its maximum.
  • Don’t abuse the emergency “quick shave” charging feature some shavers have as this will trigger memory effect.
  • Overcharging your battery will heat it up and, in turn, decrease your battery’s lifespan.
  • If you notice your battery has been suffering from the lazy battery syndrome or memory effect, then discharge it and fully charge it for one month or so –never charge it unless it is completely empty.
