Review By Barry Lumsden
Remington’s range of electric shavers is surprisingly small for a company that is so well know in the hair care products industry. However, all the men’s electric shavers that I have seen from Remington have high rating and very good customer reviews. Today I am going to be talking about the Remington R8150 Dual Track Rotary Shaver and its features. This is Remingtons rotary shaver follow up to their F7790 foil model.

Remington R8150 Dual Track Rotary Electric Shaver Review
This Remington shaver has many of the innovative features and technology found in the more expensive, popular brands. The shaver head for example is made up of three rotary cutting foils which flex independently. This independent flexing allows the shaver heads to work in synergy and remain in full contact with the skin while shaving. The three shaving foils are mounted an a pivoting head which makes for even further adaptability to rounded areas on the face such as the jaw line.
With the combined flexible shaver foils and the pivoting head the shaver offers even skin contact to make sure all hairs are cut thoroughly and evenly.
The handle on this Remington R8150 model has a built in LCD timer which gradually runs down with each shave. For example, when the shaver is fully charged you will have 60 minutes of shaving time available before the shaver needs re charger. The 60 minutes is displayed on the shaver handle, so after 5 minutes of shaving the display will read 55 minutes remaining. This is a really nice feature as you are able to accurately see how much time you have remaining so never need to worry about the shaver dying on you in the middle of shaving.
The ergonomically designed handle looks very stylish with a polished metal effect finish, digital display and rubber griped area to minimize the risk of dropping and offers maximum control.
This is a dry shaver and is not recommended for wet shaving. However, the Remington R8150 is fully washable so you are able to rinse it under water after shaving to keep it clean and free from the build of hair.
As mentioned, the shaver gives one hour of cordless shaving time before needing charged which is very good and even better than some of the more expensive electric shaver models. In the unlikely event that your shaver battery runs out of power you don’t need to wait hours on it charging. The shaver has a quick charge function that takes only five minutes and gives the shaver enough power for one full shave. I really like the charging stand that Remington provides with this shaver as it’s very stylish. The shaver suits the stand and makes a fashionable addition to any bathroom.
The Remington R8150 includes a travel pouch with this shaver so you can take it anywhere and there is also a little pop up trimmer.
