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.

super

Jeg er Buzzador og kunne købe dette produkt til nedsat pris. Min erfaring efter at have prøvet produktet er at det er en maskine, der er nem at bruge og som barberer grundigt og skønsomt. Denne maskine er langt bedre end min gamle af et andet mærke som bruger rundeller og som min hud slet ikke kan tåle, idet den giver udslet og kraftig rødme, men med denne maskine går det som en leg. Barberingen er hurtigt overstået og den medfølgende rensestation, gør maskinen klar til næste gang, så den er så god som ny. Jeg er imponeret over hvor tæt barberingen er både ved brug hver dag og ved lidt længere skæg. Min modydelse i forhold til Buzzador er at prøve produktet for siden at skrive en anmeldelse, som bygger på mine indtryk Læs mere om TRUSTED REVIEWS by Buzzador: http://www.everydayme.dk/Assets/Modules/Editorial/HtmlContent/Images/Buzzador/Trusted_Reviews_by_Buzzador_DK.pdf

Close enough

Jeg er Buzzador og kunne købe dette produkt til nedsat pris. Min erfaring efter at have prøvet produktet er meget positiv. Jeg har brugt min trofaste Turbo Mach 3 skraber siden jeg startede med at barbere mig, og har aldrig haft en elektrisk barbarmaskine. Derfor var det med stor spænding, at jeg pakkede dyret ud af æsken og gik i gang (jeg stoppede naturligvis med at barbere mig så snart jeg vidste at pakken var sendt).Det første indtryk var, at der i hvert fald var kraft nok på maskineriet, og efter den første barbering af de daggamle stubbe, var jeg overbevist. Barberingen var smertefri og tæt. Jeg behøver ikke gå i bad først og bruge skum, det tager kun 2 minutter, så er jeg ude af døren.Min modydelse i forhold til Buzzador er at prøve produktet for siden at skrive en anmeldelse, som bygger på mine indtryk.Læs mere om TRUSTED REVIEWS by Buzzador:http://www.everydayme.dk/Assets/Modules/Editorial/HtmlContent/Images/Buzzador/Trusted_Reviews_by_Buzzador_DK.pdf

Excellent German Engineering

I stopped using electric close shavers a while ago after suffering from skin rashes. My experience with the Braun series 5 is good, I have used the razor a number of times and whilst I still suffer from minor irritation, this is very much improved.The razor itself looks and feels good and offers a great deal of power. The result of this is a quick painless shave. I really like the cleaning function of the razor which does make the razor feel brand new after every clean.Only draw back is the fact that the cleaning fluid needs changed, this is not really an issue though as the number of cleans can be limited thus saving fluid.In conclusion, an excellent razor, looks good, powerful, well engineered and an actual joy to use. Makes shaving much less of a chore. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A mixed bag

I found that the razor gave a decent shave, but the time it took to get close was not as effective a s a wet shave. I would def use on holiday as it is easy to transport and the clean system leaves me with good faith that it is hygienic. The price of the razor from new may make me think twice, but i am overall pleased with the razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Almost as close as a wet shave..but not quite.

For around 15years now I've always used a wet shave as i've never been a fan electric shavers as they always left a rash on my face and didnt really do a great job of shaving. When the Braun Series 5 shaver arrived I was intrigued to see if the shaver still brought me out in a rash like all of my previous electric shavers did (even the ones with a gel pack inside them). After first use I was quite shocked...No Rash! The shaver also gave me a shave nearly as good as a wet shave, I still think a wet shave has the edge over any electric shaver. One of the many great features about the series 5 is that it fully recharges in 1 hour. Having the option of using the charge station which also cleans the shaver is also an added bonus, no more tapping out the whiskers on the sink!. As soon as the short cleaning process has finished the shaver feels like new again. Braun have done an excellent job of incorporating some neat features inc. being able to use the shaver in the shower due to it being waterproof. Although I wasnt a big fan of electric shavers before using the Braun I've been partially converted and will continue to use it for the majority of the time and would happily recommend it to friends and family. My only concern would be the price as it is at the top end of the electric shavers. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not what I expected

I have to start my review by stating I've never used an electric shaver before and though I had heard good things from people, I always preferred a manual razor for what I feel is a closer shave.When I got the box for this shaver, it played to the man geek in me, all black, made to look like the latest tech product, not a shaver.Of course I went through it all unlike a geek to make sure I had everything and nothing was missing. So I set it up and awaited for it to be fully charged and then I could use.It wasn't the experience I had in mind. I find shaving against the grain as such very odd and I've found that even doing that, I have issues where it just doesn't seem to shave close enough, despite manipulating the skin as suggested and holding it at 90 degree angle.One of the additional reason I was interested, is that using an electric shaver is good for those with very sensitive skin. I have to say on this, it seems to be better, but not enough to make me feel that I would change over permanently.All in all, I have to say I'm left disappointed. It takes longer to use the shaver to shave than with my manual razor, maybe I just haven't figured out the best way to use it yet. This puts me off for wanting to keep using it. Unsure of the cost of the replacement fluid to keep it clean.Too many negatives for me to say I was ecstatic with it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun 5 series

Quite impressed with this razor, I previously used a rotary and was a bit sceptical about a foil razor but it was good and easier to use than my old rotary razor! It holds its charge really well too, I've only charged it once in 4 weeks!! Thoroughly recomend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

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!
