What do I need to know before using my GilletteLabs Heated Razor for the first time?
Before its first use, the GilletteLabs Heated Razor needs to be activated via the charging dock – you’ll be unable to switch it on without this step.
All you need to do is plug in the charging dock, place the razor onto it in an upright position, and automatic charging will begin. You’ll notice a regular white pulsing from the dock indicator, confirming that the razor is being charged.
We recommend charging your Heated Razor for at least one hour before its first use.
How do I turn the Heated Razor on?
All you need to do to turn on your GilletteLabs Heated Razor is press the power button to activate the warming bar. The LEDs will then blink until the razor heats up – full heat will be reached within one second.
Do I need a special type of electrical outlet for the GilletteLabs Heated Razor?
The Heated Razor has been designed so that the charger can be plugged into any standard UK 2-pin 110-240v electrical shaver socket. Every original Heated Razor sold in the UK comes with a UK 2-pin plug for this purpose.
We also highly recommend that you use the detachable power cord provided with the Heated Razor. Using an alternative could cause damage to the razor, affecting its ability to perform at the highest standard.
How do I know when the battery is low?
When the Heated Razor’s battery is low, the charging indicator will blink when the razor is switched on. At this point, there will be enough battery power left for approximately one shave with the warming bar activated.
When the battery has run down completely, the heating and charging indicators will blink white three times and the razor will turn off. Never attempt to replace the battery.
How do I charge the Heated Razor?
To charge the Heated Razor, place it on the charging dock. When the razor is positioned in the correct upright position, charging will begin automatically.
Charging will be confirmed by frequent white pulsing of both the charging indicator and the dock indicator.
It takes approximately six hours to reach a full charge, which will provide 15-18 minutes of heat. When the Heated Razor is fully charged or when the handle is taken off the charging dock, all indicators will turn off.
Can I use my existing Gillette cartridges on the GilletteLabs Heated Razor?
At GilletteLabs, we designed the Heated Razor blades differently to the Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Razor Blades. Both are based around the same great blades, but our Heated Razor blades are enhanced with an innovative warming bar to provide instant and soothing warmth with every razor stroke. As a result, Fusion5 ProGlide blades will not attach to the Heated Razor.
