1. How do I get the best shave?
For best results, we recommend shaving in small circular motions. The rotary blades allow you to shave while moving the shaver in any direction.
For the smoothest shave possible, we recommend shaving in the shower and using shaving cream or foam. The hot water and steam from the shower will help soften your hair, and the shaving cream will help protect your skin. The Kingston Shaver LK-1800™ is water resistant and can safely be used in the shower.
As with any new shaving device, it may take 2 to 3 weeks for your skin to adapt to a new shaving method.
2. How long does it take to get used to a new shaver?
We recommend you allow an adaptation period of 3 weeks, during which you should shave regularly (at least 4 times per week) to allow your hair and skin to adapt to the new shaver. If you experience heavy irritation, please stop shaving to allow your skin to heal. During this period, use your new electric shaver exclusively and do not alternate shaving methods; alternating shaving methods makes it more difficult to adapt to the new shaving system. Your first shaves may not give you the result you expect and your skin may even become slightly irritated. This is not uncommon since your skin and beard need time to adapt to any new shaving system.
3. How long does a shaving head last?
For maximum performance and hygiene, we recommend replacing blades after 50 shaves. Damaged blades should be replaced immediately.

4. How long does the shaver need to be charged?
See the instructions that came with the shaver. The Kingston Shaver LK-1800™ takes approximately 5 hours to fully recharge.
5. How long does the shaver work on one charge?
The Kingston Shaver LK-1800™ will last approximately 45 minutes on a single charge. This is normally good for up to 30 days of cordless shaving, depending on the size of shaving areas, thickness of hair and your shaving habits.
6. Can I use the shaver in the shower or in the bathtub?
While you can use the shaver in the shower, we do not recommend using it in the bathtub.
7. How do I clean the blades?
We advise you to hold the shaver, with the shaver head facing down. Turn the shaver on and dip the running blades in a bowl of water (you may decide to add a little soap/detergent/alcohol-based solution). Let the blades run for 30 seconds to a minute. The running blades will push out the hair clippings.
