How do you use the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is the perfect tool to shave facial hair. It is easily charged through the mains supply and has 45 minutes of cordless operation time. It is washable and features the new Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station.

How long do batteries last in the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
It can be fully charged in an hour giving you up to 45 minutes cordless shaving and 15 minutes of the cooling function.

How do you clean the shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec CT5cc and CT2cc shavers features the Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station, proven to clean more hygienically than tap water. The three-action alcohol-based cleaning system automatically cleans, charges and lubricates the shaver at the touch of a button for lasting cutting efficiency. All °CoolTec shavers are also waterproof up to 5m for full washability.

Can the new Braun °CoolTec shaver be used on the body?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is designed to groom the face and neck where facial hair grows. It is not specifically designed to be used on the body. Braun provides other grooming products which address below-the-neck needs.

Where is the °CoolTec manufactured?
Like all our premium shavers, the °CoolTec is fully designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany, ensuring Braun’s 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 °CoolTec experience for a very long time.

Can you use foams and gels with °CoolTec?
In order to experience the full °CoolTec effect, and benefit from the world’s only alcohol-based cleaning system that hygienically cleans 99.999% of germs, it is important that you do not use any shaving foams, gels or lotions which may act as a thermal insulator, and are not compatible with the alcohol based cleaning solution (and may potentially also damage the device).

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.

My review 001

1st impressions after opening the box was wow! Ideal for me as it full of gadgets and good reading material, couldn't wait to get it charged to give it a go. After the initial charge I couldn't wait to get shaving but I was not overly impressed with it, loved the cool feeling but didn't cut as close as I expected and it was very heavy to hold for the period of time it took to shave it also took longer to shave compared to my other shaver. If it was lighter and had rotating heads it would be ideal if it cuts closer. Thanks for letting me test it though.

Brillian close shave!

In recent times I have stayed away from close shaving as I have sensitive skin so most days it was uncomfortable, I saw this Braun shaver with CoolTec technology and decided to give it a try. It is very impressive as I will explain further... Contents: Unboxing this shaver was fairly easy from the well designed packaging, inside comes the docking station for charging/cleaning, power cable for the docking staion, a brush to clean, a cleaning solution that fits in the charger dock and of course the shaver... which is a very nice looking unit. The set up: This was fairly easy, I had to consult the manual to check a few things but basically the dock plugs into a shaver connection although I used a converter to charge on a normal uk power socket, then the shaver slots in the dock with two metal connection points which need to touch the two inside the dock then hey presto it starts charging. The money shot - Shaving: I was quite nervous on the first shave as I have had stubble for around 3 years because of the sensitivity I get from a close shave so I proceeded with caution... this was soon gone as the shave is actually so nice, the cooling place in the middle of the two shaving sections is amazing, it provides a nice coolness on the skin whilst shaving, there is an option to turn the cool feature off but I wont be doing that... the shave is so close my skin now feels nice and smooth and it doesn't irritate me or feel sensitive which is so good as that is what I thought might happen. There is also a trimmer on the side of the shaver that you just push up and trim, this is a great feature for extra styling. After the shave I washed my face which felt fine and then the danger area... aftershave! I was again surprised that there was only a slight sting from applying this no where near the normal sensation I would expect after a shave. Summary: If you have sensitive skin don't worry, the coolness that this shaver provides during shaving is so nice on the skin and helps provide a really close and nice shave, the docking and charging station also cleans the shaver too which is a nice feature, you really do get the complete shaving package with this... if you like a nice clean shave from an electric shaver then you won't go wrong with this one.

Was this the electric shaver I'd always wished for?

When the chance to get my hands on this shaver came up I jumped at it. I have fancied trying a decent electric shaver but always been put off by the price and the fact when I have tried electric shavers before I was less than impressed. Out of the box it looked great. Really sleek and well designed, I popped it into the charger which gave a reassuring beep. I first used it on a week old stubble, I didn't expect it to work but thought I'd give it a go. As I suspected there was no way it was going to work. I don't think any shaver would have. After getting out my beard trimmer I gave it another go and was pleasantly surprised, it performed much better than I expected and so much better than any electric shaver I'd tried in the past. To my surprise the cooling function could be felt pretty much instantly and was very pleasing. I have tried the shaver quite a lot now and the only minus point I could find with the cooling action was on a really hot day it caused condensation which added a bit of drag to the shaver. After shaving I was very impressed with the job it had done, my face felt pretty smooth and the shaver had done rather well. The only problem I have is some of the hairs on my neck grow very flat and it did miss these. I have always used a wet shaver because I like the results I get. From now on I will be using both, wet shaving now and again then using the electric shaver in between. All in all a very good product indeed.

excellent electric razor

Working in a role that requires me to be clean shaven every day I would look for a shaver that is effective and easy to use. I would highly recommend this product, it takes my just a few minutes every morning to shave with it. This razor is excellent and the finish is as close to a wet shave as I have ever experienced from an electric razor. I have recommended it to colleagues, friends and family.

Coolest shave with the coolest razor

I am normally a beard man mainly because my skin is so sensitive. Any aftershave can set it off itching so i've mainly avoided shaving where possible. Wen the opportunity to try out a new razor came up I was skeptical but thought I've nothing to lose. I was totally amazed at how the razor felt against my skin. It was like shaving with a feather! Each stroke was as cool as the last. The razor gave a close cut so was no need to keep going over the same area. Wen I had finished I was waiting for the post shave burn, but no it never came. I tempted fate by trying aftershave afterwards and I was so glad the burn also never appeared, I've finally found a razor that suits my needs and I get to go beardless for the first time in years, and just in time for the heatwave!! I actually look forward to shaving in the mornings now! The fact that its self-cleaning is an added bonus for an on the go lifestyle. The shape of size of it is very original. Fits into my hand perfectly and when i'm finished it doesn't take up a lot of room on my wife's dressing table (not that there is much room to start with) Overall I'm giving the razor a pleasant 10 out of 10 and I've already recommended to my mates

Braun cooltec shaver ct2

I stopped using electric shavers some years ago as they use to leave my neck red raw with a very unsightly rash,I also thought that the shave was never close enough and I always looked like I had shaved the day before.On seeing the braun cooltec I realised this was right up my street and was more than willing to give it a try. My initial beard growth on the first day of use was about 2 days old(a good amount a of stubble)as I I wanted to give it a proper test,although I had to go over the same areas a few times I eventually got down to a clean shave look.At first I didn't think much of the cooltec but was amazed by how cool it felt on the skin,it really did work.On completion of my first use I had a good clean shave and most importantly,no rash or redness on my neck.The second time I used it was the day after on a minimum growth stubble and it had no problem getting a close shave at the first time of trying.

Good but not Great

I found the razor cut better than expected for an electric. It's the best close cut razor I've used which meant I didn't have to shave as frequently as I would do with my original razor. However, I found the shape a little awkward to use. It's big and bulky but it is quite light weight. The head was hard to get into the crevasses but after pulling around the skin it done the job. I don't think the charging station is particular great as the razor doesn't sit firmly in place. You have to jig it about to get it to start charging. The cooling agent is good and found my skin didn't feel so hot and I didn't get my usual blemishes which appear when I normally shave. This was a huge plus as my skin takes a while to calm down so handy when you want to shave on the quick. Charging is very quick which means you don't need to wait hours to use it. Takes 1hr for a full charge but can be used even if it's not fully charged. Overall a solid razor and pleased with the results. I still prefer the razor blade but this is handy for the quick shave on the way to work.

First impressions

The Braun CoolTec arrived on Saturday night which was good timing as I was going out to a wedding that evening. When unpacking the CoolTec the charging cable comes as a Type C outlet only and there was no adapter for the more common Type G outlets found in the UK. This was disappointing however I did have a Type C installed in my bathroom. The 2nd issue was that the cord for the charging cable is very short so I had to use a box on top of my table for the charging unit to reach. To be fair those were the only 2 downsides to the CoolTec, the charging station is modern looking and wouldn't be out of place in a high-tech home. The shave is very good, the best and closeted shave I have had with an eclectic shaver. Normally I would come out all red around the neck from shaving however the cuts were so smooth that my skin was completely clear and clean shaven.
