C

◗ Charging Indicator

As you charge razor, more and more lights of the display meter will light up to indicate what level the batteries have been charged. When the battery contains enough power for one shave, the plug symbol goes out.

C

Full Charge Indicator

When the batteries have been fully charged, all battery level lights on the display light up continuously. After 4 hours of charging, the battery level lights go out automatically and charging stops.

C

◗ Remaining Battery Capacity

The remaining battery capacity is shown when you

Before first Use

Charge the razor before you start using it (see ‘Charging’). Make sure the razor is switched off before you start charging it.

ENGLISH

11

Important

Only use the power cord and charging stand provided to charge the razor.

The power plug transforms 100-240V AC to less than 24V DC.

Travel Lock

The razor is equipped with a travel lock function.

You can use the travel lock function when you are going to store the razor for a longer period or if you are going to take the razor with you when traveling. See ‘Travel Lock’ section for instructions on how to use this function.

Charging

Battery performance is best if you recharge only when the batteries are (almost) completely empty.

Charging or recharging at temperatures below

40ºF or higher than 95ºF adversely affects lifetime of batteries.

Continuously recharging or continuously using as a corded razor will reduce life of batteries.

You may also shave using the charging plug provided. This razor will not recharge while being used corded.

Do not charge razor in a pouch.

Recharge only when the plug symbol on the display lights up.

12

ENGLISH

Do not charge/recharge or use razor corded until fully dried.

Placing or removing razor from charging stand:

C

Always place razor in stand in an upright position making sure charging contacts in bottom of stand fit into recess in bottom of razor.

Always remove razor from stand by lifting

straight up. Do not tilt razor.

Do not leave the charging stand with the

razor in it continuously plugged into outlet as it would reduce life of batteries. If storing razor in stand, remove the plug from outlet as soon as the razor is fully charged.

C

1

Connect cord directly to razor or place razor in charging stand and connect the small plug of cord to charging stand.

Connect the charging plug into any 100V to 240V AC outlet. Use only the charging plug provided.

Do not leave the razor continuously plugged into outlet charging as it would reduce life of batteries. Remove the plug from outlet as soon as the razor is fully charged.

An adaptor plug may be necessary for charging plug usage in some foreign countries.

Use an attachment plug adaptor of the proper configuration for the power outlet.

ENGLISH

13

The charging plug will automatically convert to work on 100V to 240V AC systems.

C

As you charge razor, more and more lights of the display meter will light up to indicate what level the batteries have been charged.

2

First time charging and recharging after non-use for 1 month or more requires a full 4 hours. After initial charge, recharging requires 1 hour. A fully charged razor has a cordless shaving time of up to 17 days.

When batteries are fully charged, all the battery level lights in the display will light up.

A few hours after charging, all lights go out.

Recharging

1

First time charging requires 4 hours. After initial charge, recharging requires 1 hour.

Recharge only when the plug symbol on the display lights up.

2

When razor is fully charged, disconnect the charging plug from outlet.

Do not keep razor or charging stand permanently plugged into outlet. If using charging stand, always remove razor from stand by lifting straight up. Do not tilt razor.

14

ENGLISH

Quick Charge

When batteries are totally depleted, recharging the razor for approximately 3 minutes gives enough energy for a 3-minute cordless shave.

When the plug symbol on the razor display goes out, the battery contains enough energy for a

3-minute cordless shave.

Put It To The Test & Shaving Tips

21 Day Trial and Conversion Process. It is a fact that your skin and beard need time to adjust to a new shaving system.

Use your new razor exclusively for 3 weeks to fully enjoy the closeness of a Philips Norelco shave.

At first you may not get as close a shave as you expect, or your face may even become slightly irritated. This is normal since your beard and skin will need time to adjust. Invest

3 weeks and you’ll soon experience the full joy of your new razor.

Stick with it! If you alternate shaving methods during the adjustment period, it may make it more difficult to adapt to the Philips Norelco shaving system.

If you are still not convinced after 21 days,

Philips Norelco will refund you the full purchase price as long as the request is received within 45 days of purchase.
