Mighty Shave from Telebrands bills itself as a high performance electric shaver that’s smaller than a credit card. They tout it is rechargeable via any USB port and as powerful as a regular electric razor at a fraction of the price and a fraction of the size.
How Mighty Shave Works
Mighty Shave is a small, black, thin electric shaver whose dimensions are not given but appears to be (and is advertised as) smaller than a credit card. Instead of a cord and plug it comes with a USB charger, which they say works anywhere in the world – or at least anywhere where there’s a laptop or USB port to plug it into (it also comes with a 2-prong adaptor for a wall socket).
Mighty Shave claims each charge holds enough power for 30 minutes and will give you as close a shave as a full-size electric razor. They promise it is small and portable enough to take to the gym or the office and it will tackle tough beards in seconds, leaving your face smooth and kissable day after day and month after month.
Mighty Shave Costs:
$22.98 for one Mighty Shave, which is pitched as $14.99 plus $7.99 shipping and handling. At the time of your order, you may add another Mighty Shave for $7.99 more in fees.
Mighty Shave says it comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, but this means you can get your initial $14.99 back if you return it within 30 days but not any of the added fees (you have to pay return shipping yourself). In addition, you must include a written explanation as to why you are returning Mighty Shave or they could reject your request.
Bottom Line: Is Mighty Shave a Mighty Bargain?
Mighty Shave, because of its size and charging potential certainly seems tempting, especially to those that travel a lot. We couldn’t find any specific reviews of Mighty Shave, but we can tell you a few things you should think about.
First and foremost, remember this is an “As Seen On TV” product. Generally speaking, these tend to have a lot of hype and make a lot of promises but end up disappointing people when they arrive in the mail.
You should also know that the company behind Mighty Shave, Telebrands, doesn’t have such a great reputation with consumers. As of May 2015 they have a D- rating from the BBB and are in the middle of a lawsuit from the state of New Jersey for violating the state’s Consumer Fraud Act. (Telebrands denies these allegations.)
In terms of electric shavers vs. regular blade shaving, we’d like to point you to an article on the Art of Manliness website where a writer named Brett shaved with 2 top electric razors (the Braun Series 7 and the Phillips Norelco Senso Touch 3D) for a year. Although his experiment was admittedly unscientific, his conclusion was that electric razors are generally more painful and less effective than using a razor, no matter the price.
Of course, some men, particularly those whose facial hair isn’t very heavy, may enjoy the convenience of an electric shaver, especially one the size of Mighty Shave. All electric shavers can cause skin irritation for the first few weeks of shaving with it and many people simply can’t or won’t go that long to get over that hump.
Therefore, if you are still interested in Mighty Shave, we strongly suggest waiting until it is available at your local retail store – Telebrands makes 90% of its sales through retail, not online or via telephone. That way, you save yourself long shipping times and if it’s a piece of crap you can return it without having to deal with lousy customer service.
