There seems to be an unfortunate misconception that all-electric back shavers are more or less the same. You push a button, they buzz, and away goes your back hair. And yeah, that is what they all do, but it’s how they do it that counts.
Since using a bad razor can be painful and frustrating, I have done plenty of research to determine what the best option on the market is, and I have found it. Today I will be taking a look at the MANGROOMER Ultimate Pro to see if it is worth your time.

The Mangroomer Ultimate Pro takes an effective approach to minimize the shortcomings of other similar products in order to create a back-shaving experience that is simple and satisfying.
I will be taking a pretty in-depth look at the features of this product in the coming paragraphs but for now, here are a few pros and cons.
- Designed to Reach Everywhere
- Multiple Attachments
- Meets the Contours of Your Back to Promote Good Blade to Skin Contact
- Recharges Very Quickly
- Hinge a little loose in the locked position
- Doesn’t hold a charge for very long
- A little pricey.
Who Is This For?
The Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver exists to help people who are otherwise without assistance to shave their back. Naturally, unless you have a trustworthy helper it just isn’t practical to try and shave your back with a traditional razor.
The ergonomic design of the Mangroomerback shaver makes it a good option for anyone that likes to give their back a good shave but doesn’t have help to do it.
No Hair Will Be Left Behind:
The Mangroomer has a long handle that empowers users to reach every area of their back. Now, granted this is a pretty standard feature when it comes to back shavers but it is also a very necessary component of the device.
Why do you need this? Without a good long handle, you simply aren’t going to be able to access the hard-to-reach parts of your back and you will end up with a shave that is spotty and….you knows…weird.
The handle is designed to be comfortable, which is a nice feature, and it also locks in at the angle of your choice so you can adjust it pretty much endlessly to ensure that you are able to address otherwise difficult to access parts of your back.
I did mention in the cons section that when you lock the handle in it can get a little bit loose, which is true. That’s definitely something of a drag but it doesn’t actually impact the way that the razor performs in a significant capacity.
While a more rigid locking mechanism may make the shaving process smoother at certain angles, the long handle of this razor does, for the most part, function the way that it needs to.
It Bounces Back Quickly:
I mentioned in the cons section earlier that this razor needs to be recharged fairly often. Depending on how long it takes you to shave your back, and how long you go between sessions, you might find that it needs a charge after every other use.
At first glance, this seems pretty inconvenient, and maybe it is, but the Mangroomer is able to counteract this inconvenience to a certain extent by featuring a very quick recharge time that will have you up and be running again in no time at all.
Keep in mind that how long any battery takes to recharge is going to be subject to a number of variables including the outlet it is plugged into, the age of the battery, the amount that you use the product, the temperature, and so on and so forth.
These things being the case it is difficult to list a specific time that you can expect the Mangroomer to take to recharge. That said, the recharging component of this device really is efficient, which is nice to see because it helps to minimize the effects of an otherwise inconvenient product defect.
With a good recharge turnaround time, you should pretty much always be able to access your shaver when you want to.
Attachments for Days
Ok, maybe not attachments for days, but you are getting two and that’s definitely not bad. In this case, the two attachments serve to ensure that you are able to take a more personalized and deliberate approach to your shaving.
One of the attachments is great for typical trimming, while the other is designed to keep up with good grooming practices. Both of them feature a shock absorption component that helps ensure ideal razor-to-skin contact.
Really, you could probably use both heads interchangeably, but the presence of multiple attachments with the shock absorption component is nice in that it gives you more options.
Oh. And it Shaves Well.
When you really break it down, the most important feature for a shave is its ability to you know. Shave. On this front, the Mangroomer finds success.
The adjustable handle not only helps to make sure you will be able to reach every inch of your back, but it also will allow you to get the best possible blade to skin angle, which will both reduce irritation, and just make the process go as smooth as possible.
One of the features that I really like about this razor insofar as the actual shaving is concerned is the “power burst mode.” “Power burst mode,” does pretty much what you would guess it would.
In order to activate this feature, simply press a button, and the blade will start shaving with an increased level of power.
This feature makes for a great way to work through or otherwise unruly tufts of hair. When combined with this product’s clever design, you really are getting a good shaver here.
So, what is the final verdict on the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro? While it may have a few small cons that keep it from being the best back shaver that it can be, My opinion is that it succeeds in all of the ways that are important.
The design of the handle will ensure that you have access to every inch of your back, while the head will ensure that each pass you take with the razor is as effective as possible. Really, there isn’t much else you could want out of an electric back shaver.
