Philips OneBlade Review

Philips has a great line of rotary shavers, but they also offer a foil-style electric trimmer and shaver to cover every aspect of the market. The Philips OneBlade Hybrid Electric Trimmer and Shaver QP2520/70 is an all-in-one trimmer and shaver so men won’t have to fill up the bathroom counter with gadgets. It comes in an elongated design, made with a black and lime green plastic handle. It’s electric with an on button located on the front middle of the shaver.

The shaver looks a lot like a traditional safety blade. It can be used for daily shaving, or to trim, edge, and shape around any beard style. The blade is dual sided so it can used it in either direction. And since it’s smaller, it’s a better option than the rotary Philips shaver. Men will be able to do their precise edging better with the OneBlade and be able to line it up better than before.

The head of the Philips OneBlade has a fast moving cutter that will be effective for both stubble or longer hair. The cutter makes movements at 200 times per second. It will also provide a smooth and pleasant shaving experience, never nicking or cutting the skin, or leaving it red afterwards.

It has a dual protection system so that it will give a more efficient and comfortable shave, no matter if there is stubble or longer hairs on the face. This shaver is also suitable for sensitive skin. There is a special glide coating on the Philips OneBlade. This enables it to smoothly glide over the skin. Built within the OneBlade is a metal foil that is covered in a crisscrossed metal section full of slots. These are what captures the hair so they can be snipped off. There are coated polymer tips that enable the hair to be instantly cut off. The shaver can be moved in any direction, so men needn’t worry if they’re shaving wrong.

The OneBlade is also rechargeable so men won’t have to worry about replacing powerless batteries. It takes eight hours to fully charge up and then will last for 45 minutes of shaving time.

Men can also have the choice to shave wet or dry as it’s water resistant. Shaving gels, foams, soaps, lotions, or creams may all be used. When shaving is done, the Philips OneBlade can be rinsed under the tap.

The Philips OneBlade Hybrid Electric Trimmer and Shaver costs under $35, making it affordable and convenient to use. The OneBlades are replaceable, much like the replaceable blades for a safety razor. Men who shave twice a week will find that their Philips OneBlade lasts up to four months. But actual results may vary from man to man.

Inside each box of the Philips Norelco OneBlade Hybrid Electric Trimmer and Shaver QP2520/70, is one OneBlade, 1 handle, 3 trimming combs, and 1 power charger.

The Philips Norelco OneBlade Hybrid Electric Trimmer and Shaver is for men who appreciate the close shave of a safety razor but hate the itch and burn afterwards. They may need to do intricate facial trimming that is too difficult with one of the Philips Norelco rotary shavers. The OneBlade is an affordable solution from Philips for the man who likes to be a bit different with his facial hair styling.

The Best Vacuum Cleaner is the Robot Vacuum Cleaner

There are a lot of different types of vacuum cleaner styles on the market today which can make shopping for a vacuum cleaner more difficult. There are at least six different styles for the homeowner to choose from. While you can use trial and error to find the best vacuum cleaner for your home, you may benefit from knowing that the best vacuum cleaner is the robot vacuum cleaner.

In the olden days there were no vacuum cleaners and the cleaning was usually done by women. They had two choices: use a broom to sweep the floors or use a cloth to wipe it down. Either way, cleaning the floors was time-consuming. With the invention of the electric vacuum cleaner in the last century, women’s chores became a lot easier. And soon men were also cleaning their homes because times had changed, and vacuuming a room was much simpler now.

Many people with larger homes will choose a built-in vacuuming system. This means they don’t have to pull a heavy vacuum around each room. All they have to do is plug in the hose to an outlet in the wall. The downside to this cleaning system is that it is costly.

The canister vacuum is long and rectangular, and has a long tube attached to a wand, with cleaning brushes at the end. In the past, these vacuum cleaners were large, bulky, and hard to pull around a room. Today, the canister-style vacuum is much lighter.

There is also the stick vacuum and the upright. They both look much the same, but the stick is a lot narrower and lighter. The stick vacuum is only used for cleaning floors, as there is no detachable wand that can be used to clean furniture.

There is also the handheld vacuum which is more suitable for fast cleanups. Many people will have one of these in their living rooms, particularly if they have young kids or pets.

The sixth type of vacuum cleaner is the robotic vacuum cleaner. These are usually square or round in shape, and look a lot like a disc. They can be preprogrammed and will vacuum an entire room for you. Many also have additional features such as the ability to return to their home unit for recharging, or to wash down floors.

Robotic-Vacuum-CleanerSome robot vacuum cleaners have small debris canisters that actually collect the dirt inside. Some may have tanks that are filled with water and cleaning fluid for the dual purpose of vacuuming and washing the floors. Some robot vacuums have a soft microfibre cloth that you can attach to the bottom. This is where the debris will collect.

No matter which robotic vacuum cleaner you choose, it may be your best choice. If you’re like most families, your home needs to be vacuumed on a daily basis. If you have a robot vacuum cleaner, it will take this choice away from you. You’ll no longer have to dig your big bulky vacuum cleaner out of the closet, set it up, and then push it from room to room. Instead, the robot will move around on its own volition, cleaning the floor’s surfaces.

Some robotic vacuum cleaners only clean hardwood floors, while some will clean both carpets, rugs, and hardwood or hard surfaced floors. If you have carpet in your home it’s worth paying the extra cost for a robot vacuum cleaner that can clean all types of surfaces.

Many robot vacuum cleaners also have special room parameters built in. This means that you can program it to avoid the baby’s room, or the pet’s sleeping area. There may also be buttons that offer a quick room clean for those times when you are expecting company but don’t want your robot to spend an hour cleaning.

You can save a lot of time if you purchase a robot vacuum cleaner. The robot vacuum will give you more free time to do what you enjoy. You can read a book, do hobbies, play sports, or watch television, while you watch your robotic vacuum cleaner navigate the corners of your room and do all of your vacuuming for you.

Review of Tesla Model 3

Tesla’s line of electric-powered vehicles is being eagerly watched for the release of the Model 3. Some Tesla Model 3 details have been revealed in March 2016. Could it be the release that could makes Tesla a major competitor of GM, Honda, or Toyota? The Model 3 will be a mass-produced vehicle, and one charge can take it to nearly 200 miles.

The Model 3 comes in a silver metallic color, in a four door edition. While there is room for passengers, the space may be cramped in the back. It has sleek curves and a blunt front bumper, with tinted windows. The lines and angles are sharp and dramatic, and this is a car that you will take notice of on the street. Many people have complained that the vehicle looks like it’s been chopped off at the front, but Musk says that they are working on the design aesthetic.

Distance was always an issue with the electric vehicle. Many people could use it for work, but were hesitant in going on a weekend trip involving more than a few miles. But now with the success of the Model 3, we could see more manufacturers willing to dedicate new tech to new batteries.

Tesla has come a long way in the past ten years. In 2006, Elon Musk had posted about his long-term vision for the company. They were still two years away from manufacturing their first electric car, the Roadster. It was his goal to provide high-end premium vehicles to customers willing to pay the price. It was his intention to consecutively sell more vehicles, thus lowering the price with each new edition. To do this would require new battery tech and better efficiency.


Tesla is currently only taking preorders on the Model 3, so the final vehicles released in late 2017 may have a slightly different design. This small sedan will be in direct competition to similar price points in the Audi, and BMW line.

Inside, the Model 3 has a different dashboard and console design than previous models. It utilizes minimalism. There are no instrument clusters and no climate control knobs. Apparently even the air vents are hidden. To access the controls and instruments, there is a large touchscreen. Here you can view the speed, range, and other information right on the windshield, allowing the driver to keep their eyes on the road at all times. Apparently there are still plans in the works for the interior of the cabin, and apparently the space will be better utilized and make more sense during the final unveiling. Apparently Musk has said that the final unveiling will make the driver “feel like they’re in a spaceship”.

The motor of the Tesla will be in the back. It will take six seconds to go up to sixty miles per hour. It will have a dual motor AWD configuration, but there are few other performance stats to this date. But due to the smaller size, lower center of gravity, and better torque advantage, due to electric propulsion, it’s expected that the 2017 release will have some impressive and fast action on the road.

It will cost about $750 for a 240 volt Tesla charging station, which doesn’t include installation. Each hour of charging at home will give thirty miles of range. Since the average commuter drives forty miles a day, the car should run for an entire weekend before needing to be powered up again.

Apparently Tesla has a deal with the government that if 200,000 units are sold, each purchaser gets a $3750 refund on the $35,000 cost. Either way, the Tesla Model 3 will be eagerly anticipated to fill the gap for people who turn away from gasoline-based vehicles.
