One of the most important things to consider when traveling is how to pack lightly. Male business travelers must always pack a shaving kit, even if the trip is just for a few short days.

A nice alternative to a shaving kit is Norelco's 6885XL electric razor. This quadra action shaving system, which features a two-stage cutting system, enables the closest shave possible.

Its new patented lift and cut technology has 27 rotating blades and provides a much cleaner shave than most other products available.

You may even rinse the heads of this compact razor under the water as the stainless steel self-sharpening blades allow the life of the razor heads to be extended.

What makes this product perfect for traveling is its unique small portable carrying case. Just put the electric razor in the travel pouch and off you go!

Whether you prefer cordless or corded operation, Norelco provides an extension for every traveler's needs.

When you receive your shaver, just plug it in for a quick 6-minute charge, which will enable a three-minute shave if you are in a rush. Once you have used the product and would like to recharge it for a more substantial period of time, plug the shaver in for one hour, which will provide 45 minutes of cordless shaving.

Travelers on the go often aren't sure how much life is left in their shavers. Fortunately, Norelco has thought of everything. The LCD display shows the remaining shaving time and battery level left, providing a signal the razor needs to be recharged.

If you don't clean the razor in between shaves, don't worry. The shaver has a built-in clean indicator, which alerts the user when it needs to be cleaned!

Another special feature of Norelco's newest product provides some great news for business travelers on the go. The shaver can be recharged easily from a car or even a boat battery. The special adaptor cable is not included with the product but may be a good investment for people who have shaved in the car before.

This shaver retails for $179.95. For more information, be sure to visit your local distributor or check out Norelco online at
