Hair today, gone tomorrow


Special to The Miami Herald

Most quality electric shavers adapt to different electrical currents for charging during international travel, but they usually require adaptors for different-shaped wall outlets. The diminutive new ShaveTech shaver doesn’t need any of that. It charges via standard USB port. About the size of a cellphone, the shaver has a flip-open USB plug, so you can charge it anywhere via your computer. Many hotel rooms contain desks with built-in USB ports, and of course some have ports for U.S. appliances, though wattage is usually restricted. The shave is efficient, though the small head may need more frequent cleaning for heavy growth. The shaver comes in black or white and includes a removable lid, soft pouch and cleaning brush (the outer foil hood pops off for cleaning the blades). An optional USB AC Wall Adaptor is available.

ShaveTech USB Shaver is $39.99 in black or white; USB AC Wall Adaptor is $6.99; at
