Frequently Asked Questions
What is FlexBall™ Technology?
Handles featuring FlexBall Technology allow the blades to respond to the contours of your face to get virtually every hair.
What’s the microchip and how does it work?
A battery-powered razor delivers an optimal shave when the voltage and frequency remain consistent, shave after shave. Over the lifetime of the battery, the voltage can weaken, reducing frequency and therefore performance. The microchip maintains constant voltage and frequency over the lifetime of the battery, delivering consistent product performance every time you shave.
How does the low-battery indicator light work?
The microchip inside Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power senses when the battery is approaching a low level, and the low-battery indicator light begins to flash, signaling that it's time to change the AAA battery.
What’s the automatic shutoff feature?
The automatic shutoff feature turns the razor off after roughly 8 minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the razor is accidentally activated, which comes in handy when traveling.
How does a power razor give men a better shave?
Soothing Micropulses help reduce friction and increase razor glide. With comfort so incredible, you'll barely feel the blades.

Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power uses a AAA battery.
