If you are wondering whether you can use your Philips Male Grooming device with the power cord, please read our advice below.
 

Showerproof and washable devices

Waterproof trimmers and clippers can be safely used and cleaned with water. However, these devices will not work when they are plugged into an electrical socket. They are designed this way to prevent any kind of accident.
To find out whether your groomer is showerproof, look for the following symbol, printed on the body of your device.
