- Design / Ergonomics: Here you can not complain, the shaver looks good and is also processed convincing. Only the silver-painted Plasikteile could exude a bit more quality. I like it much better than the otherwise seemingly largely identical 7101 Panasonic (the only difference seems to be the charge level control, which is implemented in 7036 with a simple lamp at 7101 on a small display I).
- Functionality: When dry shaving is the 7036 well, but you should not expect miracles. The shaving is approximately on a par with my old Braun, is perhaps even a little worse, just at the neck. What convinced me wet shaving function, both with easy washing gel (soap) as well as with shaving cream. The two go very quickly, gently and with convincing results even during long whiskers.
The fact that the ES 7036 can be cleaned under running water just makes a cleaning station (which then also expensive cleaning fluid eats) just as superfluous as the annoying brush with pure dry shavers.
- Battery: The battery lasts a long time and loads quickly enough. The charge status control is implemented as written on a small light that begins to flash when the shaver needs to be recharged. This solution is simple but perfectly adequate, the warning could, however, come a little earlier. The battery life is up to me in daily use in about a week.
- Accessories: The accessories is somewhat spartan: In addition to the razor with a removable protective foil for a cloth bag for transport, a small brush and a simple charger is. That's for the price in absolute OK, I would have it, however, pleased when the charging cable would run at least as spiral cable (because it would take so much less space) and when a simple stand or a little more stable transport box had been there.
Conclusion: Overall, convince the shaving result and processing. A bit more accessories and a slightly better dry shaving would be necessary for the fifth star. Nevertheless, the IT 7036 in my opinion is an adequate substitute for any other razors on the market at an almost unbeatable price.
