Body and Material of Andis Shaver vs Wahl Shaver

Andis Shaver vs Wahl Shaver

Andis Profoil Shaver has a size of 4.75 inches and weight 0.2 lbs body. There is a little bit of sturdiness as it is the mode of the grayish polymer. Due to its material, it is durable and, no doubt, it is at the cost of lightweight comfort.

The size of the Wahl’s shaver shaper is smaller as compared with Andis Profoil i.e. 4.6” inches but its weight is about double the former i.e. 0.36 lbs ounces. It does not mean that it is hard to work with this shaver as a lot of people prefer to use a bit heavy shaver like Wahl’s shaver. The textured body of Wahl gives a strong grip and does not allow the shave to slip out of the hand of its user.

Andis and Wahl, both, have features of Hypo-Allergenic Foil but the former depends upon titanium and the latter has a delicate gold coating for a smooth shaving experience.

It is important to mention here that both the products have very thin foil over their blades.  It is necessary to have extremely thin foils so that they can cut the hair when they are closed to the holes but too thin can cause the foil to break. For sensitive skin, Wahl’s super is the best foil model.

While shaving, one can feel the pressure. You should be careful while shaving with Wahl’s super shaver as has sensitive foils as compare to Andis Profoil and there are chances you may damage it.

It is a big myth to press harder the shaver for a smooth and clean shave which is not true and the reality is its opposite. When you press harder the shaver, the blades cannot pass into the skin and do not work properly. You need to push the shaver with reasonable force making contact with the skin and have a beautiful shave. You need to move the shaver on the same spot more than one time to have a clean shave. Try to avoid burning the razor by pressing hard. If you press hard the razor, there is more chance the razor burn if the foil not breaks.

Several people do not like to use a lightweight shave and Wahl’s Shaver is the best suited to them. The Rating of both in terms of material is as under: –

  • Andis Profoil: 90%
  • Wahl’s Shaver Shaper: 82%

Power & Battery:

Andis is more powerful in terms of Battery Only. It has 9400 strokes / Minute Lithium rotary motor. The Motor of Wahl is also powerful but it is not at par with Andis due to battery life. The battery of Andis lasts up to 80 minutes when it is fully charged while Wahl’s shaver shaper runs only for 60 minutes. Despite battery time, its technology is also considered. The Andis has the latest Lithium-ion and Wahl comprises the older Nicad battery type.  The rechargeable battery is not for life and one day may stop storing the energy and will not be able to get full and also stored energy will be used quickly in these batteries. In the nutshell, Andis battery will last longer while shaving than Wahl’s shaver.

NiCad is also known as Memory of the battery. With the continuous use and passage of time, there is depletion in battery charge, and devices using NiCad decreased their cutting capacity. But this is not in the case of Li-Ion technology. One can use Andis and Wahl’s corded shavers but in cordless feature, Andis has its superiority over Wahl. The former can be used globally as it runs on 100-240V and 50/60 HZ. The Rating of Andis Shaver Vs Wahls Shaver is as under: –

  • Andis Profoil             95%
  • Wahl Shaver Shaper 80%

Closeness / Smoothness Of The Foil Cut:

This is the most complex portion to elaborate but Andis Profoil and Wahl’s shavers are much efficient in their working. They both can be used for finishing purposes such as effacing necklines and removing the stubbles everyone tries to get rid of. Both the shavers are working well for providing a smooth bald look and polish well your dome as well. For extra sensitive skin, Wahl 5 Star performs better well as compared with Andis. If the skin of someone prone to bumps and irritation, the Andis Profoil #17150 will not provide you smooth cutting experience. In conclusion, we may say that Wahl’s Shaver performs better in terms of closeness/smoothness of the shave. The final rate of Andis vs Wahl Shavers in terms of smoothness is as under: –
