A travel shaver for the man who likes to travel ultra-light


I told you about the travel kit I put together for my husband who wet-shaves with vintage double-edged razors in a previous post (see links at the end of this post).  His kit is loaded with all of the luxuries of home, but it’s big and heavy and takes a lot of room in his suitcase.  It’s not for the man who likes to travel light and who only carries items that do double duty.  If you are a minimalist, you might be more interested in the Mini USB Travel Razor Shaver Windproof Cigarette Cigar Lighter than in a bulky kit like my husband’s.

This travel razor/cigarette lighter is about the size of a lipstick (there’s that word again!), and it is powered by a USB-rechargeable battery instead of flammable fuel.  The lighter is flameless, so it’s windproof.  The electric shaver has a single “floating head”-type razor that’s protected with an attached cover until you need it.

I don’t know how well this will work as a shaver, but it will certainly fit the bill as a minimalist, multi-purpose travel device.  The Mini USB Travel Razor Shaver Windproof Cigarette Cigar Lighter is available from the missjun2010 shop at eBay for $9.99.  Shipping is $0.99 for an ePacket from Hong Kong.

  1. Looks dangerous and somewhat disgusting (putting the cigarette lighter under your nose, first thing in the morning?!?)

    Try one of the Merkur travel razors instead, there are models with both a bar and open comb:


    Together with a travel brush that unscrews and is stored inside its own handle and a stick shaving soap, you get a really nice shave in a compact kit.

  2. I don’t smoke, but this does look like a nice, compact travel item. Wondering how the cigar/cigarette lighter would fare when trying to pass through airport security.
