  • I like philips norelco multigroom 3100. It has got lots of attachments and using this instrument, you can reach the hard to reach areas easily. It’s price is affordable and not heavy.

  • From a shaving point of view, the Philips Norelco multigroom is one of the best shavers I’ve tried yet. Unfortunately, the non-replaceable NiMh batteries it uses lets the product down badly. I’ve had two of these so far and neither of them could hold a charge at all after a year.
