It’s the same with razors and razor blades.
This doesn’t affect me. I use disposables. I have a beard. The reason the beard is where the beard is, is because that’s where the hair grows fastest and thickest. The reason the beard is not where the beard is not, is because the hair grows slowly and sparsely there. It needs shaving only once every couple of days (pre-pandemic / mask).
So I shave a small patch once or twice a week and a disposable razor lasts a month. A 12-pack is a year’s supply.
On the other hand, I probably go through a half dozen AA batteries to keep the beard trimmer going for a year.
I still think I’m ahead $$$-wise.
