This product fails on pretty much every level.
* Cheap design and feel - check,
* Useless interface, including turning it on again when you want to turn it off - check,
* Poor quality of shave - check,
* Incredibly short battery life - check.
Seriously, this is a terrible piece of kit. I have a Philips QC5170 for my hair, which is a really good product. Easy to use, reliable, great battery life and sharp blades. I thought this would be of a similar ilk and would be handy for taking on holiday for a quick hair and face trim instead of taking the larger Philips. Not a chance. For instance, the battery life lasted for one and a half shaves, dying half way through the second and meaning I had to revert to a wet shave. With the Philips, not a problem, can just plug it in and continue, but not practical with the Babyliss and its pointless "docking station" - seriously, Babyliss, we get that you want us to think it's like an i-Pod for your face! Shame its nothing like the quality of an i-Pod!
The blades don't give an even shave at all, and the design doesn't lend itself to a neat cut as it has a flimsy barrier which moves up and down to "lengthen" the cut, but is not strong enough to hold a firm level all the way around.
I would avoid this like the plague - I wouldn't even give mine to someone else, it's that poor! Is there a zero stars option on this thing...?
