No need for a mirror, water or lube. The cost of electricity is almost impossible to calculate it is so small. Shave face 2-5 times a month, shave head every 1-2 months. If i lived in a cold place I probably wouldn't bother doing either.
Harry: I can't believe we drove around all day and there's not a single job in this town. There is nothing, nada, zip!
Lloyd: Yeah, unless you wanna work 40 hours a week!

I have gotten replacement heads but they never seem to fit just right (and they are not easy to find!). Just this weekend we bought a new shaver, which I hate to do, because so much waste, but we both agree that the hassle of safety razor/blades every day is too much (and then you have the waste of the foam/cream, etc). I guess no option is exactly perfect.
I am glad to have convinced my daughter of depilation with a hair-pulling contraption rather than razors- mine has been with me for a good 5 years and I bought a corded, not rechargeable, one, so I expect it to keep working for a good long time.
