Features and Specifications Analysis

3 Bladed Foil Shaving System

The Panasonic ES-LL41-K is the replacement update of the Panasonic ES-LT41-K and Panasonic ES8103s arc3 shavers.

So, this is a new arc3 shaver that comes with 3 arc foil blades.

The 3 Arc foil blades have individual functions but work together for a smooth and close shave.

Hybrid Grooming Device

Panasonic calls their ES-LL41-K shaver a Hybrid Grooming kit.

This device allows both shaving and trimming together.

There is a slide-up trimmer beside the shaver head in the groomer.

Panasonic provides 2 attachment combs with the groomer to have a perfect beard length trimming for a versatile beard style.

So you can say this is not only a shaver but also a trimmer.

The producer engineered the Panasonic ES-LL41-K electric shaver and trimmer with a sleek design and intelligent features.

The shaver body is fully black with a red edge and a premium rubberized comfort grip.

The rubber grip feels very comfortable for capturing the shaver, and it makes it more secure from accidental slipping.

The Panasonic shaver ES-LL42-K has a perfect shaving head with 3 ultra-thin foil guards that offer super comfortable daily operations.

The intelligent sliding trimmer head makes the groomer more attractive to look.

Stainless Steel Blades

Panasonic used super sharp stainless steel blades in the Panasonic ES-LL41-K shaver and trimmer to make the operation very fast.

The blades can cut every beard in a single pass where you will not need a second pass.

The Japanese brand Panasonic used state-of-the-art blade technology in this shaver and trimmer blade to make them very tough and ultra-sharp.

Auto Shaving Sensor

The manufacturer amplified the auto shaving sensor in their new Panasonic shaver ES-LL41-K.

The shaver automatically detects the beard density and power ups, and downs according to the density.

It provides maximum power if it finds thicker beards and provides mild power if it detects thin beards.

So, you do not need to worry about your beard density in different angles and thick areas.

Flexible Shaving Head

The shaving head and foils are flexible to pivot in different directions.

The pivoting head can read your skin contact and flexes softly at any angle and curves of your face.

Since the foil cassettes are flexible, the shaving operation is very comfortable with the shaver.

As the shaver head can move in different directions, it can reach any area and curve of your face to capture every single hair and deliver a very smooth and clean shave.

2 Comb Attachments

The Panasonic ES-LL41-K shaver and trimmer comes with 2 intelligent comb attachments for the slide-up trimmer.

Combs subsequently provides 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, and 5mm, 6mm, and 7mm hair trimming length options.

Each comb has a right-left sliding option to select the accurate length.

Linear Motor

Panasonic used a very powerful 13,000CPM linear motor in their new arc3 shaver Panasonic ES-LL41-K.

This powerful linear motor is able to deliver maximum speed to make a very fast shaving and trimming.

It can cut more hair in less time since the performance is very fast.

The motor performs at the same speed when the battery has a full charge and a low charge.

The speed remains the same until the battery fully ends.

So, you will not face pulling and tugging issues though the battery is low.

Edging and Detailing

The slide-up trimmer is not only trimming the beard, it offers ultimate edging and detailing too.

When you have a shave or trim, you need a final touch of sideburn or mustache, you can shape or detail them with the trimmer just removing the attachment combs.

Wet/Dry Shaver

The shaver would be the perfect suit for men who love wet shaving.

100% Waterproof

So, you can bring it to the bathroom and have shower shaves under the shower. The arc3 series Panasonic shaver ES-LL41-K has a 100% waterproof body.

It will not face any water-causing problems if it slips down from your hand and falls into the water.

The battery provides 50 minutes of continuous shaving and trimming with a full charge.

The battery takes only 1 hour to be fully charged. So, you can say the shaver has a great battery.

The other adorable thing about the shaver is you can charge it from anywhere in the world since it comes with a universal charging adapter.

Smart LED

Most of the consumers of the shaver provided positive reviews about it, and very few had objections.

Most reviewers and consumers recommend the shaver if you want an ar3 shaver with a trimming facility.

We also recommend the shaver in a middle price range.


  1. Nice review, thanks. Between this model and the BRAUN SERIES 3 3010BT which one would you think that would deliver a closer shaving?

  2. i’m looking for an electric razor that can shave my head but also trim my facial hair (not completely shaved) will this do the trick for both? if not any other panasonic suggestions? wanting a foil razor

    • Hi Matt,
      I think the Panasonic ES-LL41 is perfect for you as you want to shave head and face and also trim the beards. Go with it, it won’t disappoint you.

  3. Thank you Joseph for your important review.
    Is it possible that you can recommend a travel pouch for this Panasonic ES-LL41-K?

    • Hi Patrick,
      Happy to know that you found my review authoritative.

      Sorry to inform you that, Panasonic doesn’t provide any hard travel pouch with the Panasonic ES-LL41-k shaver and even there is no such matching third-party travel pouch to buy separately for this shaver.

      So, this is the only way to store this shaver with the included soft fabric bag.

      In case you lost the fabric bag, this is available to purchase from the Panasonic store separately (

      -Thank you.
