  1. It should be noted that Philips AT890 lacks very important future for dry shaving: 9 comfort-settings and its battery cannot be replaced after end of lifetime (3 – 4 years). By comparition, older HQ84445 (cord-operated) is of my better quality and is more practical (it can last for more than 10 years). It is unfortunate, that Philips replaced it with another garbage, made in China.

This makes this shaver very impractical for use.

    • I am using ut since i boughted and never touched a razor blade. Also i charged when i buy it (when i posted the blog post) and since now i didnt charged it again. Also i love the sideburns trimmer. Until now i have no complains.

        How long ago did you buy it? Sideburn-trimmer used to be standard future on all Philips’ shavers until production was moved to China. And what you will to with it, when battery-life expires after 3-4 years of use? According to the manual and Philips’ customer-service it cannot be replaced. It would be much better for Philips to return to European tradition of design – excellent workmanship, quality and long-lasting products, and not follow mean chinese advice.

      • 16 March 2012 ….since than i didn’t charge it…and it shaves so good. and after the battery life will expire i can use it with cable…anyway im not type of guy to shave in car or train or bus 🙂

      • You will be unable to use with cord (“cable,” according to you), since it designed (probably on chinese advice) to operate from battery only (see your manual)
