Blades for these shavers are beneath the foil – so blades don’t get direct contact with the skin thus reduce chances of getting nicks and cuts when shaving. A foil is a thin layer of metal – with holes that form a mesh pattern. Now when the shavers head goes over your beard, the foil lifts the hairs from the skin and exposes them to the cutters beneath the foil. This explains why you will never get 100% close shave with foil electric shavers. But they are the best shavers for sensitive skins.

Instead it was a series of breakthroughs -- from the battery to the electric motor -- in the 1800s that led to the first electric vehicle on the road. In the early part of the century, innovators in Hungary, the Netherlands and the United States -- including a blacksmith from Vermont -- began toying with the concept of a battery-powered vehicle and created some of the first small-scale electric cars. And while Robert Anderson, a British inventor, developed the first crude electric carriage around this same time, it wasn’t until the second half of the 19th century that French and English inventors built some of the first practical electric cars.
