Anyone use a battery operated shaver for legs and underarms?

If so which one? I used to about a hundred years ago but always felt my legs were still a bit prickly! Have things improved since then?

Yep! Been using one on off since I was about 15 (10 years) and love it for quick and easy in the morning.

I use a babylis that I'm sure is no longer sold, and it is battery operated. However, I'm about to replace it with a plug and charge one as I'm so sick of replacing the batteries constantly for a smooth shave! I find that after a couple of uses batteries don't give enough power for close shave and tend to miss bits!

I need to do some investigating really, a plug and charge one would be better!

Yep and no - a battery one for using on let's not in the shower. Any brand, I've had a few from tesco over the years.
But I've found they hurt and pull under arms so don't use it there.
