FAQs

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.

What's the difference between the different Series 5 models?
The 5090cc model comes with high quality metal surfaces and has the most advanced display among Braun Series 5 shavers: a very precise 5 level battery status indicator with low charge warning as well as a travel lock and hygiene indicator. On top, the 5090cc features the advanced Intelligent Clean&Charge Station from Braun: it cleans, charges, lubricates and selects cleaning program at the touch of a button - so your shaver feels like new every day. For more information about the rest of the Series 5 range, please consult the Series 5 Model overview.

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.

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.

Even better than a Wet Shave!

I have never been a fan of hand held battery shavers as I always felt that they left me feeling unshaven.I thought no razor could ever touch a "proper" wet shave.That was until now when I was sent the Braun Series 5.When I used it I was shocked but this was in a good way! The shave left me feeling completly clean and shaven.Not only did the series 5 equal a wet shave but it felt even better .I asked my partner what she thought of the results and she asked if I had a brand new razor as she said my face felt much smoother than when I had used my old one.One of the many great features about the series 5 is that you can use it in the shower as it is waterproof upto 5m.It also fully recharges in 1 hour and if you wanted to it will then give you upto 45 minutes cordless shaving.I was also very impressed with the clean and charge station as it saved me having to clean my shaver.After it has been cleaned in the station the shaver really does feeling like you are using it for the first time.Well done Braun for you have created the ultimate shaving experience and I shall be recomending it to all friends and family who shave.

The 5 series evolved!

I often wonder why when i buy a mens shaving product does it not seem long before a 'newer version' comes out. I ask myself - Have i made a wise decision? Did I 'really do my homework and buy the best I could? Well here it is the newer more user friendly Series 5 5070!Compared to my previous series 5 I initially notice a different sound from the motor, not as loud or whirly as my previous one but a more smoother sound which if you can relate to it doesn't sound to harsh. But will it work I ask myself. Quick answer yes it does. Initially it feels much lighter on the skin and not having to push on as much to obtain a smoother shave. Those hairs on my neck that seem to grow the other way to the rest - not a problem it does those too. Something I found so annoying with my previous series 5. Having to hold it at different angles to get a cut on those hairs was such a pain.Thankfully Braun have got round that problem and all the same direction and I get the shave i want. The shave i desire to look professional in my appearance.They have kept the cleaning system which I really did like although the base is a little smaller which is just perfect for the shelf I have in the bathroom for my shaver. The previous series 5 overhung the shelf a little, so i was always worried it would just get knocked off. So piece of mind there.The whole clean and charge system front display is a different it seems more led lights and a somewhat simpler one touch and it charges and cleans.In all Braun has always been a brand to trust for quality and now those little personal niggles I have with the old series 5 have now been ironed out.Would I recommend - well yes and My can look forward top a caribbean journey with me next month.Well done braun.

Good Shave, No Effort

This has been my first campaign and I was looking forward to trying this out. Once offered the campaign I spent a long time reading up about this product and was excited to receive this. When the product arrived it didn't disappoint and even now a few weeks later I am still as happy as ever with the shaver.The shaver arrived with a cleaning station so once I use the shaver I pop it in the cleaning station where it cleans the shaver itself and also charges it at the same time making this a great product with minimum effort to look after which is always a bonus.The shaver itself is easy to use and a nice size to hold it comfortably, I have used this several times since receiving the product and I feel this is as good to use as a bladed razor. It's a clean cut and my face feels smooth after use.The pivoting head is the highlight of this razor. The head on the razor moves to ensure it reaches all parts of your face and chin making this simple and quick to use. You can also lock the head into one position if you feel this is more comfortable for you, I like this as you have the best of both worlds.Another positive for this razor is a light comes on to let you know whether it needs a light clean or a heavy clean so you can put it in the cleaning unit when it's required. The light cleaning does come on after every use so I always clean it each day.The only downfall I have found so far with this product is it came with a soft cloth travel case where previously my cheaper 3 Series Braun shaver came with a better protected and more sturdy travel case which means you have to more careful packing this when going away.Overall I think this is a perfect product and great shave, I have already spoken to a few people about this telling them how good it is and in future it is definitely a product I would buy again. Great results and a lot quicker than my previous razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun 5 series get 5 stars

I have been using my Philips electric shaver for something like 6 years now and to be honest, its had it. It just about does the job, but I was only thinking about getting a new shaver this year. Bzzagent then comes to the rescue. I did not really know what I was going to receive, other than a Braun shaver, that from the picture, looked like a decent bit of kit.Upon arrival, I found it rather daunting with the amount of things in the box. I mean, I just wanted a shaver! Looking through the manual, I was became aware of the dock (like your ipod dock) that cleans your shaver with a liquid (this takes 3 minutes). It really does mean that when you next shave, you get a fresh feeling. The shaver has a little blue droplet that lights up telling you when it next needs a clean.Battery life is always a very important aspect of a shaver. Well you will get approximately 45 minutes of use before you need to charge it. If your still shaving at that point, then something is wrong! Plenty of power.It has a built in clipper which will help with your side burns and help you looking neat and trim across your face.So how about the shaving experience? Its taken me abit of getting use to. My previous shaver had three round heads that flexed in all different directions. This has one rectangular head with abit less flexibility. However, I have to say that it does the job. It cut closely and gets into all the difficult areas of the face. Overall I am satisfied with the performance of the cut.A nice little accessory bag for the shaver, its handy when taking it on holiday.Overall then we have one of the latest shavers on the market, which self cleans and that is what sells this product. It really is a nice feeling to have a fresh electric shave each day. I have every confidence that the product is sturdy, will survive any knocks and will last for years.

To close (a shave) to call!

It's a great package, rechargeable, washable (but not waterproof) cordless (and corded) shaver with cleaning station. See pic for contents. I was looking forward to testing this new Braun and comparing it to shavers I've used previously. It was pre-charged out of the box, although it does recommend an initial charge. I set up the station, put in the cleaning cartridge - basically it's lemon scented alcohol which is used to clean the shaver, and then did my first shave. I had about 2 days stubble, so not too long, and proceeded to take it off. The shaver felt good in the hand, weighty but not too heavy and on this 5 series model, the head tilts to match the contours of your face. It seems more powerful than previous model's I've owned, but this first shave seemed to take a long time to remove all of the hair, especially on the neck. I've used it about 5 times now and each time seems to get better. It's taking less time to shave and getting a close finish. Not sure about the early result but I'm very happy with it now. I've used the cleaning system a couple of times, and the result is a clean nice smelling shaver. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a new electric shaver.

Now that's what we call - A True Close Shave!

I was pleasantly surprised to get an email to participate in the Braun shaver campaign. Finally used it a fourth time as prescribed and I am indeed very very happy with the results.The shaver is excellent with the basic quality of shaving the hair well. (7/10)Then we come to handling which is perfect and I would say better than the old 3 series versions that I have had chance to use.(8/10)Then comes our battery charging and charge-stay times - which are indeed quite decent.(8/10)Then we have the cleaning mechanism - which is quite interesting with the docking station type set up.(Kewl!)It does clean it well and the layout of indicators is wicked on it so you know how clean(deep clean) is required.(8/10)Then we come to portability - which I can say you cannot always carry the entire cleaning station always but can be good to just rinse it as to how much you use it.(7/10)Shaving ability when compared to normal razor - I was very impressed when it compared how smooth the face felt after shaving with this shaver in comparison to my blade razor. (9/10)Overall, I think its a very well made and delivered product. It has got excellent trimming ability, design(red and black goes well), premium feel(certainly).Initially, was a little apprehensive would happily recommend this product to anyone who wishes to start off with shavers and put down dad's handed down razors!

Braun Series 5 Shaver - 5070 with Clean&Charge Station with Flexmotion Tec

Wow... What a shave, now from someone who has avoided electric shavers ever since my early twenties I can only say that I am absolutely gobsmacked.I could not believe just how close a shave this razor gives and once the clean and charge station is used it feels like a brand new shaver after each and every cycle and it delivers a very pleasant experience.The precision trimmer is precisely what any gentleman would wish for and enables you to trim those annoying hairs around your sideburns and along the collar line. I will also say at this point is preferable letting my wife use this on me as opposed to giving her a razor!!Beg, borrow, save or drop as many hints to friends and family as possible as my advice is simply get one of these and turn daily chore into a revitalizing wake up call.Finally whilst the price tag may seem high if you factor in how much a set of decent razor blades and decent shave gel are these days you may find yourself saving a fortune.

From reluctant shaver to frequent clipper!

I have never been keen on shaving in general and even less so in using an electric shaver.But now, having had the opportunity to try the Braun Series 5 shaver I am a changed man!My first use of this was with a full two week's worth of growth so I considered this to be a good test of the shaver. Despite one or two pulls and pinches the shaver gave me a pain free shave with a finish akin to that of a wet shave but without ANY of the irritation.I then used the product again the next day to keep my face feeling clean-shaven and I've found myself doing the same again virtually every day since.The self-cleaning and charging station is a welcome feature of the shaver and is small enough to be able to fit nicely on my bathroom window ledge.The effects of the auto-clean are obvious and it smells and feels like brand new on next use.The head of the shaver can be set to a variety of angles and while this is good, for a high quality product, the head does seem to be too easy to move while still locked.That however is the only criticism I would have of the product because the build quality is excellent with a sturdy feel to it without ever feeling too bulky or heavy.I also like the additional trimmer that can be used to tidy up sideburns etc - it's so well built into the device that I actually didn't even notice it was there for the first few shaves!Overall, a great product and one that has definitely made me change my stance on electric shavers and shaving in general as it has turned from a chore to a pleasure!

BRAUN SERIES 5 5070CC SHAVER

I was really pleased to be offered the chance to try out this shaver. I usually wet shave a couple of times a week and use a rotary electric shaver if i'm in a bit of a hurry.Once accepted on the campaign, I let my facial hair grow a little longer than normal in anticipation of the new razor arriving. I didn't have to wait too long as the Bzzkit turned up a couple of days later. On opening it up, I was pleased to see everything well packaged and a set of instructions that even I could get my head around!Having unpacked everything, I plugged in the razor to give it its first charge - I was pleasantly surprised how quickly it charged up - much quicker than my old one.Once charged, I had a go of it; due to the longer than normal growth, I used the long hair trimmer to try and make things easier. unfortunately this is where I hit a snag. The trimmer on the Braun is smaller than my old one and therefore trimming 'all over' takes a fair bit longer, the trimmer itself is also at a bit of an awkward angle! After i'd trimmed everything back I gave the main cutter a try, this seemed pretty effective, although did take quite a few repeated strokes to get a clean finish all over - this leading to slight tenderness once finished. I also noticed that the foils get quite hot, very quickly - I am not sure whether this adds to my face feeling a little tender post-shave?All in all,this is a nice shaver, which provides adequate results though does seem to miss the odd hair here and there. I have shaved with it twice so far and am looking forward to seeing whether the results and performance improves as my face gets more used to it. I have not yet tried the cleaning caddy, but will give it a test after my next shave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Does It's performance match it's appearance?!

Having always favoured a wet shave I couldn't wait to try this piece of kit out. Once out of the packaging I was impressed with the look of the shaver but slightly put off by the size of the charging unit as it was combined with the cleaning system. My bathroom is pretty small and finding somewhere to store it has been a challenge! The shaver performance, however, has been quite impressive. Gives a close shave and is not problematic for sensitive skin. Convenience wise, much better than a wet shave but it doesn't quite match it for that wet shave smooth! I will continue to use this alongside a traditional razor but probably won't rush to replace it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
