Shaver FAQ

  • Can I shave wet or dry?

    Most of our shavers can be used to shave wet or dry, with or without shaving cream or foam. Pitbull, Butterfly Kiss, and Palm shavers are also IPX5 water resistant, so you can safely shave in the shower. However, please do not fully submerge any of our shavers. If you are using original Skull Sh...
  • Can I use the shaver in the shower or in the bathtub? Are the shavers waterproof?

    Our newest shavers are IPX5 water resistant. You can use any of the Pitbull, Palm, or Butterfly Kiss shavers in the shower. We do not recommend using any of our shavers in the bathtub. Previous Bald Eagle and Butterfly shavers are not water resistant and should not be used in the shower or bath.
  • Can I use the shaver with different voltages in different countries?

    All of our shavers are compatible with worldwide voltages from 120v up to 240v. You may need a physical plug adapter for different countries. Our shavers come with a USB charging cable so your shaver can be charged from almost any USB port, battery pack, or wall adapter that outputs 5 volts or le...
  • 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...
  • How do I reassemble my blades? They have fallen apart or I cannot get them back together after cleaning.

    To clean your blades, they do not need to be disassembled beyond unsnapping the blades from the drivetrain. Blades do not need to be disassembled down to their individual components by removing the inner white brace. If your blades have fallen apart, or been taken apart beyond what was needed, th...
  • How long do blades last? When should I replace my blades?

    Depending on the frequency and volume of shaving, as well as the thickness of your hair, on average we recommend you replace your blade every 3-6 months.
  • 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 ...
  • How long does the shaver need to be charged?

    See the instructions that came with the shaver. Most shavers take approximately 2 1⁄2 hours to fully recharge from a completely dead battery. Our shavers come with a USB charging cable so your shaver can be charged from almost any USB port, battery pack, or wall adapter that outputs 5 volts or le...
  • How long does the shaver work on one charge?

    A Pitbull Silver or Butterfly Kiss shaver will last approximately 60 minutes on a single charge. Other models like Pitbull Gold and Pitbull Platinum should last for 90 minutes when fully charged. This is normally good for up to 30 days of cordless shaving, depending on the size of shaving areas, ...
  • Is it safe to charge my shaver while it is wet? Or should I dry it completely before charging?

    Please fully dry your shaver before charging.
  • Is the shaver adjustable, or does it only shave down to the skin? Will it leave any stubble?

    Our Pitbull, Palm, and Butterfly Kiss shavers are not adjustable. They only leave a smooth shave down to the skin. The Beast Clippers are adjustable and will leave a little stubble at their closest setting. The stubble length can be adjusted to shorter or longer with a Beast Clipper.
  • My blades are spinning. What do I do?

  • Should I use shaving foam, gel, or oil? Which is recommended for a wet shave?

    We recommend shaving gel, foam, or cream over shaving oil. Shaving oil can build up in the blades and become difficult to clean. As a result, shaving oil should not be used in any 5 head blade. You can use shaving oil with the 3 or 4 head PRO blades, but they should be thoroughly cleaned from ti...
  • Which blade is best for me? What's the difference between blades?

    There are 3 types of blades. The Carver, Forte and Baron. The Carver is recommended for coarse hair, the Forte for most users, and the Baron for sensitive skin and/or fine hair. All of them give a great shave but the comfort level changes depending on your personal preference and skin type. Ther...
