Where can I find a small electric facial hair shaver for men?

Searching for the smallest (lightest and size-wise) electric shaver for men.

I'm looking for the tiniest electric shaver for men for my father as a gift. The size is a factor because my mom has to carry a lot of things for him due to his illness so a tiny one that doesn't weigh much would be great. It would preferably use standard battery sizes (AA or AAA) too. Thank you so much for your help!

This looks pretty small and simple, though I've never used an electric shaver.

I take a gilette Mach 3 and some Lush shaving cream when I travel. The razor blade is kept in one of those cartrdiges the blades are sold in. Can't beat that for size and weight.

Be careful going on just size. My experience is that the electrics with the round, rotating cutters work OK; but the ones where there's a mesh that you push your beard through don't really do the job.

The one I use seems to be out of stock, but it's relatively small with just two cutters instead of three. This seems to be the closest equivalent.
