FAQs

Braun Series 8 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.

I already have a cleaning center from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the new Series 8 shaver?

No, the Series 8 cleaning center is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean & Charge line and can't be used with previous models. The latest cleaning center provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning center.

Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?

We recommend that you shave before you take a shower. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. At all times, hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, Series 8 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. In order to use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upwards.

How do I clean my shaver?

All Series 8 shavers are waterproof up to 5m for full washability.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?

We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. To maintain optimal performance, we included a replacement part indicator in the display to ensure that you know when to exchange the cutter parts.

Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phones or laptops?

No, Series 8 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 battery available for Braun shavers.

Where is Series 8 shaver manufactured?

Like all Braun premium shavers, Series 8 is designed, engineered, and manufactured in Germany to ensure the very best build quality and reliability. All of our shavers are designed and tested to last at least 7 years, giving you the peace of mind that you can continue to enjoy the unique Series 9 experience for a very long time.

Closest and Most Comfortable Shave

I have researched and followed loads of different shaving methods over the years and tried so many different blade and electric products and thought I had found the best in the Wilkinson Sword 5 blade razor. That was the closest and most comfortable shave so far. Then I bought this: the Braun S3 S3040s. Totally matches it on shave and even closer still. I have zero irritation where the blade still on occasion did. And cleaning the electric razor is so easy with the wet dry capacity.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Good shaver, till battery packs up, then useless

Generally a good product, but the battery cannot be replaced. It's rechargeable, but like all rechargeable batteries it can only be charged a limited amount of time.

OK when it's Working.

I purchased this to replace the Remington I'd been using for years, in comparison, it doesn't shave as close but the main problem is that unlike the Remington, this packs in when the Battery is down and doesn't work when connected during charging, so I'm left half shaved until it recharges !

Surprised at battery life.

I used a Philips for ten years before getting this razor. I got more than a month of shaves from the Philips once charged, but barely three shaves with the Braun. It appears to be challenged by more than a 3 or 4 day beard growth.
