The Thanko madness goes on with a USB shaver


Weird, weirder, Thanko. The Tokyo-based gadget makers are unstoppable when it comes to USB stuff, including household products. They already gave us the USB-powered boob warmers, the heated USB wrist band and the USB lunch box warmer. And today it’s time for the USB-powered shaver [JP].

It takes 3.5 hours to charge the shaver through a USB connection, enough for a 35-minute non-stop shaving session. The thing is sized at 54×99×19mm, weighs 80g and comes with a cleaning brush.


Priced at just $15, the shaver doesn’t look too promising quality-wise. But hey, it’s a Thanko gadget, so the idea behind it counts. It’s not listed yet in the company’s English online store though.
