PROS / This unit comes with a lot of extra attachments for shaving areas other than the face.
CONS / You can't use this electric shaver with shaving cream or in the shower.
VERDICT / The Wahl 9884-200 Beard & Body is a versatile shaver with an impressive battery life, but it provides a mostly mediocre facial shave.
The Wahl 9884-200 Beard & Body foil shaver is designed to shave more than facial hair, because it includes a variety of attachments that you can use for other body hair. It has a few other benefits, including its long running time. However, it does lack quite a few benefits that most electric razors have, such as a precision trimmer, a battery indicator, a quick-charge option and a corded option.
Although this electric razor isn't among the best in our lineup, it does have features worth noting. Its three-hour cordless running time is substantially longer than what you get with most electric razors, which generally can run for 45-60 minutes on one full charge. It takes one hour to recharge to full power, which is pretty standard.
In our testing, this Wahl electric razor provided a rougher shave than we expected. It irritated the skin a little bit on the neck area. Additionally, in order to get a close shave, it was necessary to shave over the same area about 30 times, which is a lot more than any electric razor on our lineup required.
This unit weighs just under 1 pound, which is about average for an electric razor. It measures 10.5 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches high, which is a bit larger than most razors on our lineup, but it's not that noticeable when you hold it.
This Wahl electric razor comes equipped with a charging dock, which allows you to place the razor upright and charge it when it's not in use. You don't get a cleaning station with this unit, but you can clean it under tap water. We did find it easy to clean during our testing, but it was difficult to get dry.
Unlike most electric razors, this one includes a lot of attachments. You can use the attachments to shave hair on areas of the body aside from the face, such as your head.
This Wahl razor is covered by a five-year warranty. This is much longer than the standard electric razor warranty, which is two years. You can contact Wahl for support by phone and email, but it doesn't provide any FAQs on its website for this unit.
The Wahl 9884-200 Beard & Body electric razor for men is a decent option for a product that shaves more than facial hair. We were happy to see that it has a very long cordless running time, since it doesn't have a corded option, but it lacks most other conveniences that the best electric razors come with. It also takes a long time to get your face completely smooth, and it can be irritating to skin.
