    FAQS :

    What kind of outside foil does it have? It's the wes9165pc, right?

    Answer: The WES9165PC is the outer foil that will work.

    Okay, do I have to hold this a certain way for it to actually cut hair? I just tried it on my arm hair, which is very soft, and it didn't work.

    Answer: Stubble can be cut with a foil razor. They are not at all good for cutting long hair because the foil head just pushes the hair down flat and the hair doesn't stick out through the small holes in the foil. A few days' worth of beard stubble is stiff enough to poke through the holes in the foil and get cut by the blades underneath. Because of this, electric foil razors cut closer than electric rotary razors. If you want a close shave on your arms, you may need to use barber clippers, which are made for cutting hair and beards. Then, use an electric razor with a foil to shave your arms.

    I can't make the trimmer stay in the up position. How does it work?

    Answer: The trimmer I have works just fine, so maybe yours is broken.

    Does this razor have an automatic sensor like the LV67?

    Answer: Sorry, but this model does not have an auto sensor.

    Is it true that arc5 is a lot better than arc4? even the arc3?

    Answer: First of all, rating electric razors for men is a very personal thing. Because of this, there are a lot of brands and models to choose from. A lot of what I say is based on what I think, but not everything. Facts: First, the shaving head of the ARC5 has one more blade than that of the ARC4. Second, this, along with the speed of the motor and the power surge feature, makes it a faster shaver when you get to areas of your face with more hair. Third, the head can move in a new way that allows it to bend more and follow the curves of your face better (and there is a "lock position" if you only prefer the flexibility of the old ARC 4). Fourth, the side-burn trimmer has a much stronger latch to keep it in place while it's being used. When top or back pressure was put on the ARC4 trimmer, it kept disengaging or closing all the way. A lot of trouble! Fifth, it seems like the charge lasts much longer. My old ARC4 used to give me two or a little more shaves. With the ARC5, I can get four full shaves. Note: My beard is very thick! So, from my point of view, it's a better shaver. The ARC5 is even better than the ARC4, which I loved.

    Which model's foil head has gold roller guides?

    Answer: My ES-LV5D-K has gold comfort rollers. They are not included with the US models. You can buy just the blades for your existing ARC 5 razor, or you can buy the Japanese version on eBay.

    Please answer, Panasonic or anyone else! How to do a quick clean without a charger when traveling?

    Answer: Rinse the head of the shaver, put some liquid hand soap on the foil, and hold down the start button for about two to three seconds. It will then go into sonic vibration cleaning mode. After a few seconds, you can turn it off by pressing the start button (it will shut off automatically after 20 sec.) Carefully pull off the foil and wash it and the blade in warm water. Set aside to dry in the air. Stay out of the direct sun. If you don't have soap, just take off the foil, rinse the two parts, and let them dry in the air.

    I bought the Lamdash ES-LV5D-K. Do you sell the cleaning station by itself?

    Answer: I got the same shaver and LOVE it! Cleaning it by hand is easy and doesn't take long at all. I think you should skip the cleaning station and do it by hand instead. Description: Panasonic ARC4 vs ARC5
