    no don't buy this one, its using NiMH battery.
    i got one and the battery only last for 2 years then it won't able to hold the charges.
    choose something with Lithium-ion battery, the older one i owned lasted for 15 years, mesh failed but the battery still good.

      Agree - the other issue with a poor battery is as they start to die, the rpm can drop so the cut isn't as good. There are 5000 series shavers with a good battery - eg https://www.amazon.com.au/Philips-Aquatouch-Shaver-S5420-06/... - basically the same thing but with a Li-Ion battery. I got mine from Amazon for $90 over two years ago, and still going strong.

      The only thing to note is that in theory (of course it depends on how often you use it, and how tough your beard is) the head should be replaced every couple of years - so mine is probably starting to near replacement time. As the head itself (https://www.amazon.com.au/Philips-SH50-50-Replacement-Electr...) costs around the $60 to $70 mark, sometimes it kinda makes sense to just buy a whole new shaver as horribly wasteful as that sounds.

        i got my replacement heads from ebay, 3 sets of blades for $12 shipped
        they just work as good as the originals.

          Yeah - I might try that, and they are on Amazon as well, although a lot of reviews of the non original blades seem to mention they don't cut as close/well. Worth a try though I guess!

      Oooh - pop up trimmer and an app. Tempting! For an extra $80 you can get it with a protective case & cleaning pod. Yeah - probably not worth it - rather than a cleaning pod I actually have an ultrasonic cleaner - every now and then I throw the shaver head into that with some warm water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid. If I can be bothered, a spray of shaver lubricant and it's good as new.

      The only thing that makes me hesitate from pressing the buy button are those "ComfortGlide rings" which look a bit big. As it is, I find it tricky to shave near my nose with the 5000 series…

      if u can get them to refund you, you should do it.
      trust me after 1 year u need to charge it once every week even u don't use it at all,
      after 2 years the dischange speed is the same as charging speed.
      very sh it NiMH battery inside that thing.
