Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4 Men's Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head and Automatic Cleaning SystemWe always try to give you the best reviews on electric shaver’s and the decisions you will have to make, like should I pick rotary or should I go with foil?  Or should I pick up one of the two big brands like Braun or maybe Norelco?  If you are leaning towards the rotary shaver we recommend you look at our Philips Norelco 1250X/46 SensoTouch review.  If you are curious about foil shavers we recommend reading on.

Now we know Braun and Norelco have done some big things, but we can’t deny the Panasonic ES-LA93-K performance.  Now you may have seen the shaver under the alias Arc 4 which is much easier to say.  Now this shaver will also let you shave wet or dry and offers more features than we have seen in most shavers.  Let’s take a deeper look

Panasonic Arc 4 Men’s Electric Shaver Features

Now, most people have an impression about foil shavers which is that they are inferior to the rotary.  With the Panasonic Arc 4, this isn’t the case in our opinion.  The Multi-flex head is perfect for reaching all the hard to get to spots on a man’s face moving in all four different directions.  Another annoyance is when your facial hear gets pulled or pinched.  With the Arc 4 I experienced only a clean shave with no nicks, cuts or tugs.  Now for accuracy, the rotary shaver will be a bit better but the Arc 4 shines in many other areas.

Now just like the Norelco, the Panasonic Arc 4 gives you an LCD screen with battery life display.  Included is a lithium-ion battery to make charges few and far between giving you about 16 days of usage.  Now the one feature that the Panasonic Arc 4 has is the sonic vibration cleaning system which even includes a detergent cartridge.  All I do when I am done shaving is set it back in the holder and the shaver gets cleaned, dried and recharged in one shot.  Loving this shaver!  Here are some additional key points:

  • 4-Blade Cutting system with 30 Degree Nano Blades for a clean wet or dry shaving experience
  • 14,000 CPM fast Linear Motor Drive system, with a Multi-Flex Pivoting Head; 1-Hour charge for up to 45 minutes of usage
  • Multi-ft Arc Foil and a Ultra-thin Outer Foil; Pop-up trimmer, blue 1-stage LCD display
  • Sonic Vibration Cleaning system with detergent cartridge; Lock button to prevent unit from going on
  • Travel Pouch included; 6.5″(H) x 2.7″ (W) x 2.2″ (D), 7.1oz

The motor included with the Arc 4 is probably one of the most powerful on the market with 14,000 cycles a minute.  This baby hums while you shave.

Getting Used to the Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4

Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4 Men's Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head and Automatic Cleaning SystemIf you are not familiar with using foil shavers then you need to follow some of these guidelines.  Something that you can’t do with a foil shaver is mashed it against your face like rotaries.  You will have to add some art-form to your shave but in the end, it will be so worth it.  Now the head is much bulkier with these bigger foil shavers and will require getting used to them with your maneuvering.

We know that the Arc 5 has been release but it comes with an additional 100 dollar price tag and we are not convinced that the features are worth the price.  We will have to do some more investigation on the newest version.
