This product does not emit light of its own, so the standard review format will not be used and the product will not be assigned a rating. This website is mostly about light-emitting products, but occasionally, you'll see non-light emitting products on it too if it's something I really like and/or use on a regular basis. It does have a red LED in it, so it's at least a bit germane to the theme of this website.

This is the Schick Rechargeable Electric Shaver, model number F-34.

It has an extremely thin screen covering its oscillating shaving blades; it also includes a pop-out beard & moustache trimmer. It can be used either cordless with its built-in rechargeable battery, or corded if the battery is too pooped out to use cord-free.

* Unit was given to me by my stepmother in very early-September 2020, it has apparently been discontinued as I was not able to find it via a web search.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use this shaver, charge it first (as should be done with *ALL* rechargeable products), and THEN you can make that pesky beard hair fall into the toliet.

Unplug it if you wish to use it cord-free.

Over the cutting head, there is a transparent protective plastic piece. Slide it off toward the left as the name of the shaver printed on one side of its body is facing you. Set it aside.

On the right edge of the product, not far from the cutting head, is the "ON/OFF" switch. Slide it up (toward the cutting head). The shaver should now emit a clearly audible buzzing sound.


Shave some more.

Shave yet some more -- not forgetting about those pesky whiskers under your chin.

Slide the switch (described above) down -- this turns the unit off.

To charge the battery in the F-34 Shaver, just plug the female end of the furnished coily cord into the receptacle for it on the bottom of the shaver's body, and plug the other end into any convenient 2- or 3-slot 110 volts to 130 volts AC 60Hz standard (in north America anyway) household receptacle (or "wall outlet" or even "wall socket" if you prefer). A red rectangular LED should now illuminate (turn on) on one side of the shaver's body.

Charge time from a fully discharged battery is advertised as 8 hours.

When the charge cycle is complete, unplug the cord from both the AC receptacle and the shaver itself, and stow it in the furnished zippered storage pouch.

This is a grooming aid, not a flashlight designed to be thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a porch, use a small sledgehammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analyses, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

A video clip on YourTube showing this product in use.
My left eye is what's known as a "googly eye" and I look kinda pissed even though I am not because I had very serious (Crash Course In) brain surgery {obscure Metallica reference here} in late-2002, and now have a palsy of several facial muscles.
