Remington XR1370 Hyper Series Review

Written by Sherri Briggs on . Posted in Remington, Rotary Shavers

At the early beginnings of the electric shaver industry, Remington shavers were very popular. Furthermore, Remington was even consider an innovative brand as it was the first to design a cordless rechargeable shaver. Over the years, Remington considered to deliver decent quality shavers which could be purchased at very affordable prices. Nevertheless, somewhere along the way, they forgot to innovate and Remington shavers were abandoned on the shelves while flashy Braun and Philips shavers got all the glory. However, it seems that Remington electric shavers are making a serious comeback. Remington XR1370 Hyper Series cough out attention though its sleek, ultra model design. When we first laid eyes on it, we were expecting it to be quite an expensive comeback. Nevertheless, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that this shaver only costs $90. Lets see what other surprises this shaver still holds for us!

The shaver features two tracks of shaving blades in order to cover as much skin as possible. The heads feature slots and holes, specifically designed for long hair.

Convenience

Due to its WetTech Technology, the Remington XR1370 Hyper Series can be used both dry and wet. We love the fact that its design allows for a firm grip, even when wet. The shaver also comes with a digital runtime display which shows the exact number of minutes remaining until the shaver needs to be recharged.

Comfort

This shaver does not have any sophisticated comfort inducing features. However, the shaving head is highly flexible, doing an excellent job in contouring one’s face, thus putting little to no pressure on the skin and diminishing the risk of rashes and irritation. Given the fact that it can also be used in the shower, people with sensitive skin can use this shaver with cream or gel.

Cleaning

Given this shaver’s low price, we were not surprised that it does not come with a cleaning station. However, it would have been nice if it had at least a vibrating feature which allowed you to clean and dry it better. Nevertheless, given the fact that the shaver can be used wet, feel free to rinse it under hot water in order to clean it.

Portability

As we already said, the most distinctive feature of this new Remington shaver is its modern design, completed with a sleek, ergonomic shape. The shaver weighs only 12.8 and has the following dimensions: 3 x 6.8 x 8.1 inches. The shaver lacks a travel pouch or a protective cap, yet it has a travel friendly charge stand that features a base which clamps around the shaver in order to give it a decent level of protection on trips. Another great travel feature is the worldwide voltage which allows you to charge the shaver anywhere in the world.

Charging

This shaver is powered by a powerful lithium battery. It also has a 5-minute charge option which offer sufficient energy for a quick shave. It takes 90 minutes for the battery to fully charge. Furthermore, a fully charged battery will offer 60 minutes of cordless operation. The charging running ratio is lowest than that of competitive models (which generally take an hour to last and offer 45-50 minutes of cordless operation). However, we are willing to overlook that, considering the fact that this shaver has the longest period of cordless operation on the market.

Warranty and durability

Remington shavers are not meant to last 7-8 years like Philips or Braun shavers. However, who really wants to own the same shaver for 7 years. Even the people who invest $300 in an electric shaver are going to end up changing it after a couple of years. Considering the fact that Remington XR1370 Hyper Series only costs $90, we consider it to be a good investment for 1-2 years of use. Since this shaver comes with a 60 day money back guarantee and a 2 year limited warranty, we consider it to be a value investment.
