When the brand that is famous for professional hair trimmers and clippers, comes up with a domestic model, you need to take a look. The Wahl Smart Shave is a street smart, rechargeable, waterproof foil shaver with precision ground trimmer used for shaving, trimming and wet/dry shave. Wahl has included all its research and experience to make a shaver that is complete in itself. It is packed with almost all the features that a shaver needs to have, for an all round grooming experience.
Ergonomics and design:
This grey and black shaver looks robust. The look and feel of it will tell you that it’s hardy and designed to withstand extremities. It has a strong rubber grip on the sides for a comfortable hold. It fits in your hand and the rubber grip keeps it from falling even when inside a shower i.e. when your hands are wet. But you need not worry even if it does. The Wahl Smart Shave has a tough and durable shockproof body. The strong impact-resistant body takes care of it and keeps the shaver intact in case of a fall.
The Shaver Head and the Technology:
The shaver head has two Speedflex floating shaving foils on either side of a bi-directional long hair intercept cutting bar. The two floating foils have symmetrical and asymmetrical foil-patterns to deal with hairs that lie in any direction with the minimum number of passes. The bi-directional long hair intercept cutting bar takes care of the long hairs. They are supposed to handle hair grown in 3-4 days. These two elements in the shaver head work together to give you a close and smooth shaving experience that you will be proud of. Wahl claims that you would ‘get a close shave in a minute’. The floating foils enable a smooth gliding of the shaver along your facial contours and hence works the same even on your neck or on your chin.
Precision Ground trimmer:
The Wahl Smart Shave has a pop-up, stainless steel, real precision ground trimmer which is attached to the back of the shaver and looks more like a backpack. To use it, you just need to pop it up and start trimming. This stainless steel trimmer with real precision ground technology is ideal for sunburns or if you want to do your moustache.
The Wahl Smart Shave is 100 % waterproof and can be used in dry as well as wet conditions i.e. you can use foam or gel or lotion to get a smoother and closer shave. The shaver can also be used in the shower. This shaver can be submerged in water completely up to 3 feet for 30 minutes.

Wahl Smart Shave is powered by a lithium ion plus rechargeable technology. It takes very little time to charge fully. The Wahl Smart Shave can be fully charged in an hour’s time. Once fully charged it gives you a shaving time of 90 minutes which is almost the maximum that any shaver can give. The charge can last you months on a go before you need to plug it again. With the Lithium ion plus technology, there is almost no loss of charge when it is not in use. It does not have any memory issues and takes full charge whenever you plug it. If the shaver is out of charge and you still want a quick shave, the shaver has an option of a Quick Charge, wherein you can just charge the shaver for a minute and do the needful. This Quick Charge option saves you when you need one.
The Wahl Smart Shave has a LED indicator at the front handle. This indicator mainly gives you a check on the battery charge i.e. how much charge it has at a particular time, when does it require a charge, and also if the battery is fully charged.
The Wahl Smart Shave doesn’t come with a fancy cleaning station. It can be cleaned very easily by holding the shaver head under tap water. Use of hot water is advisable to get rid of the extra foam or lather that has stuck to the foil membrane. Cleaning the shaver is apparently easy and hassle free and can be done in a jiffy.
Wahl gives you a 5 year warranty on the Wahl Smart Shave. So you can well be assured that this shaver will grace your grooming kit for longer than you can even think of. Wahl also claims that if you are not satisfied with the product and find any other shaver to be better than this then you can return the Wahl Smart Shave with the original receipt and you will be given your money back. What else do you need?
