The 8109 has nanoblades so it should give you a closer shave with less burn.

The batteries lose their effectiveness and need to be replaced after a few years.

If the battery is dead and will not hold a charge any more, then it will need to be replaced.

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.

If you have installed a new battery and charged it, and the shaver still won't work, then the charging circuitry inside the shaver is suspect and it will require a repair or replacement.
