Philips Norelco AT830/41 PowerTouch Electric Razor Review

PowerTouch is another good looking product line from Philips Norelco. It’s cordless and cheaper than SensoTouch shavers. But yet it gives a very close shave and built keeping skin safety in mind. Philips Norelco AT830/41 is also powered with Philips Aquatec technology.

AT830/41 is the most advanced shaver in PowerTouch product line. It’s pretty in design and shaped perfectly to fit in hand. It has ability to cut long hairs as well as short stubble. Its Aquatec technology allows you to shaver wet or dry.


Aquatec design lets you shave wet or dry, meaning that AT830/41 is completely waterproof. You can even use it on shower. Or you can simply shave dry. It gives the same level of close shave in both ways. It’s just your personal preference. The shaver is designed cordless to shave any part of face and neck without having problems. Norelco AT830/41 can reach any “hard to shave’ area on your face and clean it with help of smart pivot heads. It’s easy to handle and easy to control while shaving.

It doesn’t feel like a cheap shaver. And it’s not. It’s made with Philips many years of experience and exclusive features. But it doesn’t feels like top shaver either. With SensoTouch shavers around, AT830/41 looks like an old fashion shaver. But it’s not.

Without doubt Philips Norelco AT830/41 will give you a very close shave, kind of shave that a brand new blade can give. It can shave from long hair to short stubble. Nothing will be left behind and it does it very quickly. It perfectly fits your busy lifestyle. It even has a 3 minute quick charge feature that is enough for one shave. If the battery is empty, you can just plug it for 3 minutes and have a quick shave.

Talking about battery, the shaver is powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery. It takes one hour to charge the battery and then gives 50 minutes of cordless shaving. Its blades are also durable and will last for more than a year. But it’s recommended to replace the blades once a year to enjoy continued close shaving.


Since it’s the top of PowerTouch product line, it bundled every single feature on the product line. Combination these so called features make it an extremely powerful yet completely safe cutting machine for your facial hair.
