Who would've thought that flying a kite in a thunderstorm would eventually lead to the birth of a device that kept your stubble in check? Crazy, but the electric razor does provide a great deal of benefits. There is simply no way to get a quicker shave. No water. No lathering. In fact, you don't even need a bathroom, so for those of us who don't have much time to spare, this is often the go-to. Beyond the speed, many argue that electric razors reduce nicks, cuts, and hence irritation.
