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.

Can I buy a solo shaver and upgrade with a Clean & Charge Station later?
No, shaver and Clean & Charge Station are designed to interlink during the cleaning procedure. Shavers being sold without the Clean & Charge Station, don’t have the technology to connect accordingly.

How often do I need to exchange the Clean & Charge refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the Clean & Charge Station twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a shaver like new, every day. The Save & Subscribe option from Amazon allows you to subscribe for a regular home delivery and at the same time save 10% on the price of the Clean & Charge refill. You don't have to think about it and always have a Clean & Charge refill available when you need it.

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.

Yes finally a electric razor i like

Now i've never really been a fan of electric razors until now, i really like a bit of growth in my stubble as if i do say so myself i think i look slightly sexier. But it was always a case of have a clean shave look like 12 years for a few days then enjoy my perfect length then back to shaving it off after it gets to long and irritating. I just needed something to keep my desired length so i look sexy and not irritated by a long beard, then i found the Braun Series 3 ProSkin razor, the best thing since sliced bread. So what does it do you may ask well it's a 3 in 1 shaver you can either get a close shave out of it or keep your beard at a desired length then it has a precise trimmer head for that all important shaping. So the product itself is lightweight easy to hold which comes with a little pouch so you can keep all the different length combs together 1-7mm by the way. I prefer my length to be 2mm and a quick go over with this and i'm a happy man oh and my girlfriend is as well. The shaver also allows me to shape my neck with its super sharp blades and if a close shave is what your after then it's perfect for that as well. All in all a awesome bit of kit for the price and i'm so glad that i've found this product, what was life like before it? Definitely recommended quality and value all at the same time.

Braun Shaver

It was first time ever when I used shaver! I really enjoyed. I thought that it's not gonna be the same as blades. I really recommend it for men who have sensitive skin.You can use wet and dry and that is bonus for quick use.quick charging for long battery life.Easy to clean,comfortable to hold.Only one negative-It is a bit noisy.

Loving this shaver!!

Had the Braun Series 3 Shave&Style 3010BT for a few weeks now, it's lightweight, smart and ultra efficient. My normal razor which was fairly expensive can't cope with 3 days of growth I would normally have to wet shave first. The Braun 3010BT had no such problem giving me a close clean shave in half the normal time. Easy to clean, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. Shame it doesn't come with a carry bag to keep the razor & trimmers all in one place. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
