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.

Love It! Best Electric Shaver I have used

I was incredibly excited when my bzz package arrived and was not disappointed, the razor looks premium and substantial. I was a little surprised by the size because my last electric razor was over 15 years ago and was a third of the size in comparison.I charged the product for about 2 hours and tested the noise levels - very loud, which to me is good as suggests it has more power.I usually have a beard and decided that I would tr and shave straight onto the 2 week beard growth, I will admit I was a little nervous but the razor did a great job. It may be wasn't as close as a wet shave but that is probably more down to me not really knowing how to use the product. On further usage the razor did a sterling job on a par with a wet shave and leaves no irritation which is incredible.My only reason for not giving a higher mark is because the dock shown on the box was not actually included with the product which I found a little bit of a shame.

A good close shave from an easy to clean shaver

The Braun 5030s is a pleasure to use. It easily holds charge for two weeks of shaving every day and is simple to clean, thanks to being waterproof (although be aware that this is not designed as a wet and dry shaver).I don't have the coarsest of stubble, but this shaver cut through it with no signs of strain leaving my skin smooth with no skin irritation.I would have preferred a straight trimmer for my side burns, rather than the curved trimmer provided on this shaver. It still worked well and I imagine that the curve may be more practical when trimming a beard, but I am more familiar with straight trimmers.

Fantasic Razor

I have been using another brand of razor for years and thought that I had found a great product but I was wrong.The Braun razor arrived an within minutes I was impressed. The razor did not take long to charge and once it had I could see an immediate difference, whether you use this plugged in or wireless there is no loss of power unlike my old razor. The razor cuts all lengths of hair easily even in the harder to reach places and the bottom of my neck probably due to having 3 cutting surfaces and the hair lifter in the middle. The sideburn trimmer is also a perfect size for accurate cutting.It is much quieter than my old razor and feels of superior quality, the balance of the razor is great and feels comfortable in your hand. The carry bag is a nice touch and stops the razor spilling hair out when carried in a wash bag.Overall this razor is a fantastic product and great value!

shaving blues

The Braun Series 5 is a great Electric Shaver with good features. Pro's for me;1.overall look and smooth grip. 2.Child lock for safety.3.removeable top for cleaning.4.facility to style sideburns.5.Comes with shave bag.Cons for me;1.unable to create stubble (remmington Istubble)which I currently use.2. Pulls on longer hairs so best to use every day or other day.3. Takes longer to shave than my Istubble and have to push on a lot harder to make sure clean shave.4. The side burn razor is not very sharp and does not leave a clear cut line.Over all it is a good quality shaver. It's not for me as I prefer to leave stubble rather than a clean shave but would recommend.

A good razor for your money

After having my original razor for 2 years, I was well up to trial a new razor. It arrived with a carry bag, cleaning oil and all the usual stuff. I am the type I person that shaves in the morning, and by lunch time look like I never bothered. The braun series 5 arrived and I have been using it for 6 days. First thought was that it looked quite big but actually the shape forms for a comfortable hold, the razor itself is quite noisy and when shaving can sound like it's being harsh to your skin, but actually it's quite gentle, the shape of the shave head although can move this is only backwards and forwards so can become difficult to manoeuvre over all the shape of the face. The braun series 5 provides a clean shave but not as smooth as I'm used to, but that's not to say I wouldn't use it and for the price on the market would be happy with what I am getting

Great Electric Shaver with good features

The Braun Series 5 is a great Electric Shaver with good features. When I 1st opened the box I was impressed by the styling and the feel of the shaver. It looks well made and expensive and feels very robust. The shaver is very easy to use and glides across the face cutting to an adequate level. I do suffer with very sensitive skin on my neck and unfortunately I still did by using the Braun Series 5. Would I buy one? Maybe not...

Braun Series 5 Shaver - Not just another electric razor!

I have had my electric shaver (not made by Braun) for a few years now, and I was happy with the results, it made me look presentable! Now, I have received the Braun Series 5 Shaver to try. On opening the box, I was surprised how small the head was, compared to my old rotary electric shaver; it had a good weight to it, which made me think the battery would hold a good long charge. The feel of it in my hand was good, ergonomic with a good grip. I read the instruction book thoroughly, unusual for a guy I know, but that's what I do! And put the shaver on to charge.Ready for my first shave, I was blown away with the feel of power from the Braun and from the quality of the cut. I don't know if my old razor was just old and worn, or of inferior quality; but how did I ever do without this Braun?! A cliché I know, but it was the best electric shave I have ever had.

A cut above the rest

I have tried many different types and brands of shaver over the years preferring this method over wet shaving due to sensitive skin. That said, I have had electric shavers that still managed to aggrevate my skin. I looked forward to receiving my new Braun shaver to see if this could do the job better. The unit is relatively compact, sits well in the hand and is not overly heavy. It is simple to use and relatively quiet compared to other competitors. I had let my stubble grow for a few days so wanted to put this shaver to the test. It performed really well, shaving without snagging and not ripping my face apart. I am really pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone.

Braun 5030s

I couldn't wait to try this shaver out when the postman delivered it, a 1 hour charge was most welcome as I was like a kid in a toy shop waiting to use it!! The box contained a handy bag for keeping all of the bits that came with it although I've personally only used it to store the cleansing items and charging cable in. You get a little brush for cleaning inside the head and a small pot of lubricating oil to run on the head should you use the warm water cleaning method which pretty much involves running it under a hottish tap for 30'seconds or so, personally I just clip of the head and tap all the stubble out, a quick blow and it's ready to go again.I've not used an electric shaver for years as I've always suffered from a horrendous rash either side of my Adam's apple, used this shaver everyday for the last few days and not a rash to be seen!! To say I'm impressed is an understatement, the shave is as close if not closer than a wet shave.Great item that I would recommend to anyone with sensitive skin like myself.
