The Remington Titanium R-960 razor uses a rechargeable battery. The indicator light turns to red when the battery requires a new charge. However, the battery will eventually wear down and refuse to accept one. The Remington R-960 model is currently unavailable. Typically, you must buy replacement batteries from Remington. The Titanium R-960 uses the same batteries as the R-846, R-950 and R-970.

Step 1

Disconnect the shaver from any electrical outlets. Remove it from the charger. Turn the shaver off.

Step 2

Gently lift the electric razor's head and pull it away from the razor.

Step 3

Insert a small screwdriver into the screw on the top-back of the razor. Remove this screw by turning the screwdriver counter-clockwise. Repeat this process with the screw near the bottom of the back of the razor.

Step 4

Pry the two sides of the razor apart.

Step 5

Place one finger on the battery to hold it in place. Slide the clips that attach to the terminal on the battery away from the battery.

Step 6

Remove the dead battery and set it aside.

Step 7

Insert the replacement battery. Slide the clips back to their original position.

Step 8

Push the two sides of the razor back in place.

Step 9

Place the screws in their original position. Tighten using a screwdriver.


  • Drop your used batteries off at a recycling center. Many electronics stores, such as Best Buy, have drop boxes for used batteries.
