Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head and Automatic Cleaning System

Solid shaver

I used Brauns prior to this purchase and liked most of them. However, by comparison the motor on this Panasonic is much more powerful. Because I have a coarse facial hair, that’s a big plus. The Panasonic is a bit larger to hold in your hand and a tad more cumbersome to navigate around the upper lip but not a deal breaker. The LED display gives you charge status. The cleaning station seems to work well. The shaver runs for quite a few days on a single charge.

One negative. If you run the charge down to empty and plug the shaver in using the cord, the unit doesn’t operate. You have to wait until it has been recharged a bit before using it again.

Overall, I highly recommend it.

Panasonic ES-LA93-K Vortex Arc 4 Multi-Flex Nanotech Shaver, Black


Panasonic’s fully loaded men’s wet/dry washable electric shavers are packed with smart, innovative features that deliver a remarkably close and comfortable shave. The ES-LA93-K is a four-blade (Arc 4) shaving system, which means more foils for better coverage and reduced shaving time. Hypoallergenic blades and foils cause less irritation and are best for sensitive skin. Panasonic men’s electric shavers feature 30-degree-angle Nanotech blades to cut hair at its base for close, accurate precision. Along with the Multi-Flex active head, the shaver glides uniformly along the contours of the face and covering the chin, jaw line and sideburns while providing maximum comfort. The world’s fastest 14,000 CPM linear motor eliminates tugging and pulling that can occur with slower shavers. This electric razor maintains peak power right up to the end of the charge, to ensure a consistently close shave. When the shaver’s Lithium-Ion battery needs recharging, simply insert the shaver into the automatic cleaning and charging system for a clean, renewed shave. ES-LA93-K men’s electric four-blade (Arc 4) shaving system comes equipped with a travel pouch, a 10-stage LCD display, a travel lock switch, and a pop-up trimmer. Optional accessories include: foil (WES9165PC), blade (WES9068PC), combo set (WES9025PC), and cleaning cartridges (WES035P). The shaving system weighs 7.1 ounces and measures 2 by 2.8 by 6.3 inches (LxWxH).

    Panasonic ESLA93K impressions Starting with the headline-spectacular.The unit comes as a black model with cleaning base (ESLA93K) and a silver standalone model (ESLA63S). Both function the same.This shaver incorporates some firsts for Panasonic: 14,000 rpm motor; a 2’nd motor in the head that copies the Braun foil-pulsing concept and a head that pivots up and down like Braun’s have for years (plus the usual Panasonic side to side). And the whole head arrangment is a little more elegant…

    Best shave ever…better than Braun or Norelco at a great price Its almost 2 years since i bought this razor and its still working well. I replaced the blades and screen once. This was well worth the the high initial cost. It still does a better job than any of its competitors.I just purchased this new razor from Panasonic. I got tired of hair left on my face that neither the Braun Pulsonic 7 or the Norelco Arcitec couldn’t get. My family always tell me about the long hairs that were missed and the constant strokes over the same spot to get a reasonably…

    Worthwhile Upgrade Upgraded from my Panasonic ES8249 (previously reviewed: ), and it was worth the upgrade. I paid about half the retail at one of Amazon’s partners, so I encourage shopping around; I’m not sure it’s $200+ better than the 8249 if you pay full freight, but it’s a definite improvement and certainly worth it if you can get it for substantially less…
