I don't know any thing about the Pirahna shaver but have been using the Phillips cordless for about 6 years
I have recently upgraded to a new model and had the battery replaced in the old one
Battery replacement cost $25 at Battery world
I am a Truckie and use mine most days and I use an inverter to recharge the Battery about once a week

Hello John
I don't know about the Piranah but like Mark I have had a Philips Sensortouch 3D for over six years and charge it with a small inverter each six or seven days when on the road.It tells you when it needs charging. The head unclips and can be rinsed out after use. Good to have a shave while driving.

In 1956 my Dad had a Philishave that plugged into the ciggy socket in our Goliath station wagon. 6V electrical system. Worked a treat (well, the shaver did).

Go Philishave

It might be cheaper to plug your existing razor into one of these.

Had to replace my Remington cordless shaver the other week and it has a 12v plug pack so would be easy to add a w
12v plug to it. $67 at Good Guys.

If its for odd camping trip what I use is the throw away types (e.g. braun) that use 2 AA cells.

Just buy one at start of each major trip and means you always have a fresh unt.

They wear out in a couple weeks but at $20 its ok as replacemeny blades for some normal models cost $40+ anyway.

I have had a Philips 2xAA for several years and it still shaves well.
I use it when water is scarce when on camping trips and it has been in semi constant use for several months.
Mine still appears sharp and all it needs occasionally is a complete head clean.
The heads are the same type as other Philips so I would be surprised if they wore any quicker, unless of course the shaver dunks his face in sand.

Hi John
A 12 volt shaver!

I thought you had a beard or is this to shave your legs - lol?

There is a lot of difference between
