Which Li-ion Replacement Battery for Philishave Shavers?

Philips have fitted several different sizes of rechargeable Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery to their recent Philishave shaver models, making it difficult to tell which size of replacement Li-ion battery to order to repair your shaver. Similar batteries are also used by Wahl and other brands inside their Lithium powered shavers, clippers and trimmers.

Li-ion batteries are rated at a nominal voltage of 3.6V or 3.7V and are not compatible with Ni-MH or Ni-Cd batteries used by other Philishave shavers, including some Norelco and Philips branded electric shavers, clippers and trimmers.

Below we explain the different battery size options for repairing your Philishave shaver and show you where to buy them.

42mm x 14mm Size

These Li-ion shaver batteries are 14mm in diameter and nominally 42mm long (between 41 and 43mm.) Originally produced for Philips by Sony or Sanyo the replacements are hard to come by, especially with the required solder tags or pins welded into place.

49mm x 14mm Size

These Li-ion shaver batteries are 14mm in diameter and nominally 49mm long (between 48 and 50mm.) This size is similar to standard AA size batteries, however the Li-ion batteries have no pip or stud on the positive end and are a higher voltage than standard disposable or rechargeable AA batteries. As with the 42mm long batteries the originals were produced for Philips by Sony or Sanyo and the replacements, with the required solder tags or pins welded into place, are slightly easier to find than the 42mm versions.

  1. i need a new replacement battery for my philips razor HQ6695 2W/A 50/60Hz

    1. Please open up your shaver and note what is written on the batteries. Also measure their length and diameter in mm. Then we can suggest the correct replacement for you.

  2. Hello, I have a Philips Norelco HS85 series shaver, the model is HS8420.
    The battery is green without any markings and measures 42mm by 14mm.
    Please will you advise as to which replacement battery I need?
    Thank you. Anthony

    1. It’s possible that this is a Li-ion battery. Does it say Li anywhere on the battery e.g. under the recycling symbol?
