Philips Norelco AT810 Powertouch with Aquatic Razor Review
The Philips Norelco AT810 is a cordless razor giving you the option of either a wet or dry shave. The “Dual Precision” shaving system provides an effective shave for longer hair as well as those short stubbles.
The flexible head contours to the curvature of your face and neck meaning less pressure is needed for a closer shave reducing the possibility of skin irritation or razor burn. The patented “Super Lift and Cut” dual blade works by lifting the hair, and the low-friction heads are rounded providing extra protection for your skin.
Philips Norelco AT810 Convenient Features
The AT810 features an integrated pop-up trimmer, ideal for grooming and trimming mustaches, sideburns, or a beard.
A completely cordless electric shaver, the Philips Norelco AT810 is a good choice for guys on the go. You also have the ability to clean the AT810 in the shower as it is completely waterproof. Of course, it also comes with a brush for an even more thorough cleaning.
The blades do need to be replaced with HQ8 replacement heads every 12 months, but this is pretty standard for most electric shavers. You can get a pack of 52 HQ8 replacement heads for right around twenty bucks through Amazon.com.
AT810 Battery Life
The Philips Norelco AT810 boasts a 50 minute battery life which is equivalent to about two weeks shaving time for most guys. There is also a three minute quick charge feature that provides with enough juice for one shaving.
Your best bet is to always put it on the charger when done shaving. I know sometimes we get in a hurry, but it will save you from having to shave in a rush and those three minutes for a quick shave can seem like forever when you’re in a hurry!
The AT810 allows you the benefit of a dry shave as well as a wet shave using shaving creams or gel. This is extremely important for guys with dry skin, sensitive skin, or those of us that easily get irritated skin and razor burn.
If you do get razor burn frequently, make sure to use shaving cream especially formulated for sensitive skin. Also, try to stay away from dry shaving as this will increase your odds of getting razor burn. Electric shavers are a great way to help prevent razor burn, but you have to use them right and use the right types of gel or cream.
What’s in the Box?
Along with your cordless razor, you will also receive a protective cap (great for travel), a cleaning brush, a power cord, and the owner’s manual.
You will also receive a 2-year warranty that will cover any malfunctions and certain damages. However, be sure to read through the warranty information to be sure all what it covers.
As with all Philips Norelco shavers, they offer a 45 day full money back guarantee. This is great as you can test-drive the razor and make sure your happy with it or simply return it and get your money back.
What other Guys are Saying about the AT810
Out of 214 actual customer reviews, the Philips Norelco AT810 received an average of 4.3 stars out of 5, with over half a 5 star rating.
Some of the common complaints were the head does not fully pivot as opposed to the AT830 which effects performance. There were also a few complaints about the closeness of shave. Again, many were comparing it to the slightly more expensive AT830 ($10 more).
Overall, there were very few cons for guys who purchased the AT810. Most were extremely satisfied and highly recommended the AT810. In fact, the AT810 remains an Amazon best seller! While I really love my ES8103S, the AT810 is a great back up shaver or perfect for anyone who prefers a rotary shaver or is buying an electric shaver for the first time.
My thoughts are this, at just over $60, how can you possibly go wrong? Not only is this a very inexpensive shaver, but it got excellent reviews. And, if you are not happy with your purchase, simply return it within 45 days and get a full refund.
This is a great razor for guys who want a choice between a wet or dry shave making it a good decision for guys prone to razor burn.
The only fault I can find with the Philips Norelco AT810 is that the head does not fully pivot like the slightly more expensive AT830. Other than that, I think this is a great razor at a great price.
