Is there any Downside?
Yes, there are some downsides, particularly the cleaning fluid. Since the cleaning fluid is an alcohol based solution it tend dry up fast even when you are not using them. One cleaning cartridge will last a little over a month when you use every day.
To avoid unnecessary evaporation you can remove the cartridge from the base and reseal it with the old cap. But if you clean your shaver everyday this routine may not be convenient. There are people with light beard who don’t need to clean their shaver every day. They can manage this routine with ease as they need to clean only once in a week.
Price is another concern with the cleaning fluid. It is expensive. However, you can get at reasonable price if you buy from Amazon, especially the 12 cartridges deal.
