There was a time when all epilators required the use of a cord. Sometimes the cord would get in the way of epilating. Now rechargeable epilators offer the convenience of portability without having to worry about the cord getting in your way. While there are several benefits of having a rechargeable epilator, there are some downsides that you have to pay attention to. When choosing an epilator, see our detailed epilator reviews or facial epilator reviews.
If you choose a wet and dry rechargeable epilator, you won’t be able to use it while it is charging. You will need to charge it before using it. If you are the type of person who wants to use your epilator right away this is something you need to consider.
Instead, choose a rechargeable epilator that can’t be used under water or a corded epilator. The other thing you want to be aware of is that rechargeable epilators do lose their power while in use whereas a corded epilator will maintain the same level of power. Here are the current rechargeable epilators from Braun, Epilady, Philips, Remington, Emjoi, and Panasonic.
