Braun Series 5 FAQs

What's the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

Why would I need a Clean & Charge Station when I can clean my Series 5 shaver under tap water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean & Charge Station is significantly more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. It's also more convenient: at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, charged and lubricated automatically.

I already have a Cleaning Center from my previous Braun shaver (Syncro, Activator, 360, etc.). Can I use it with the new Series 5 shaver?
No, the Series 5 marks the introduction of a new generation of shavers with fully revamped technology and can’t be used with previous Cleaning Centers.

Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example over a weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin. In difficult to shave areas like under the nose you can also use the MultiHeadLock switch to lock the shaver head and manually set one of five available shaver head angles as it suits best to your needs. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. In order to use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upwards.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months.

Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phones or laptops?
No, the Series 5 shavers use a Li-ion battery which has no memory effect. You can recharge it whenever you want and it has a low self-discharge rate (vs. NiMh batteries). Li-Ion batteries are therefore the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.

Great quality and a lovely trimmer

After wanting a new trimmer for a while I was delighted when I got this product, my previous one just seemed flimsy and took me quite a while to get a nice even trim. This on the other hard is built very sturdy and has a nice weight to it when holding, the build is very good quality and comfortable to hold which is always a bonus! As for the performance, I cannot fault it at all! It’s so versatile which is great for trimming down stubble or maintaining a decent sized beard! Even without the guard on and using the bare blade I was surprised at how much of a close shave I was able to get. It will never replace a good old Bic for a clean shave, but it sure does a good job! I’m really happy with this item and glad I finally have a good solid trimmer, the price isn’t bad either. I’ve used more expensive trimmers in the past but they haven’t been so durable.. so far so good with this one! Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new trimmer!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Very precise shave

This electric razor gave a very precise shave. Best when trying to achieve one overall length I found. The only thing it lacks is difference in sizes, as I found out the length is either long or short

Yes, I recommend this product !
