FAQs

Braun °CoolTec FAQs

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.

Great shaver - pity about the travel case

Had this shaver 4 years now so plenty of time to consider the good and bad points.Cooltec - yes it works, one of those features that until you turn it off or use another razor you don't realise the benefits. I have no irritaion with it switched on but when i go to my standby razor (top of the line Phillips rotary# or turn the cooltec off i do get irritation in the neck area. I've not noticed it shortens battery life, i can get 4 or 5 daily shaves with the Cooltec permanently on when on holiday. At home it sits in its clean and charge station permanently.Shave quality - as good as any foil razor i've used #numerous top line Braun units in last 30 years# and as good as the top of the line Philips rotary #but quicker in my experience#Quality - very good, - no issuesClean n charge unit - does its job very well, no issues with the charging contacts reported by other reviewers - just place the razor in correctly and thats its. I do find the cleaning solution to be expensive at some retailers, but there are plenty of online sellers at more realistic pricesBad points ? - the lack of a chrage lead port on the razor itself means you have to use the charging cradle when away from home for more than a few days; a silly design, since there is no room in the 'travel case' to put the power lead or cradle!. In comparison,the Phillips travel case has a charge port in it - soooo much better.Overall a great shaver that does exactly what it claims to do - one of those instances where you don't appreciate the technology #Cooltec# until you buy a razor without it !

Yes, I recommend this product !

Not as good as £15 Razor!

My first electric shaver and I must say I am extremely unhappy. For £100plus I was expecting to get a shaver that was at least as good as my £15 Gillette razor but was I disappointed! Firstly , it was impossible to get a close shave despite going over the same area several times. Whereas I can get a smooth shave with my razor, the Braun left several patches of unsightly hair. Also, because I had to go over the same area several times I was left with a sore rash under my chin. I must admit I do have very coarse facial hair which may not be suited to using the Braun. I have now gone back to my trusty old razor and taken back the Braun for a refund. I

No, I do not recommend this product.

I'm converted to electric razors..a great product

I've been an on and off user of electric razors over the years, I’ve always found that I don’t get a close enough shave with them and they tend to leave a bit of an after burn sensation. I usually last a couple of shaves and then go back to my regular razor.However having tried the Braun Cooltec shaver I can officially say I’ve found the shaver for me. Being honest over the first couple of uses I did still find I wasn’t getting as close a shave as id like but I can definitely put that down to my technique rather than the product itself as over the past few weeks I’ve been getting as close a shave as ever. The ceramic cooling element built into this shaver is an absolute godsend. The electric shaver after burn is now a thing of the past with the added cooling element, when used it gives a very refreshing shave. As this is a wet and dry shaver I have tried it whilst in the shower and found that it works just as well in both environments.The cleaning station is very easy to use and I would say the only negative is that it’s slightly bulky charging unit leaving me to fight for shelf space amongst all of my wife’s products. Apart from that all things into consideration a great product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

Pretty "Cool" for a shaver!

I have been a fan of Braun for a few years now and couldn't wait to try the Braun Cooltec shaver, advertised as The World's 1st shaver with active cooling technology.As soon as I opened the box my response was that shaver looked pretty "cool" and very modern. I found the instructions easy and straightforward to follow. What you get in the box is The Shaver which comes attached with a long hair trimmer, a clean & charge station with cleaning solution, a separate charging shell, shaver protection cap and brush.Upon using the shaver for the first time I was amazed at how close a shave it was, even picking up the tiniest hairs. The cooling bar definitely makes my skin feel less sensitive and less irritated so that's a bonus! Overall I am very impressed with the shaves I am getting!The cleaning system is very easy to use, place the shaver into the unit, press a button and it does the job for you, a little noisy but that's not a big deal.The whole package looks very well made and thought out. The cleaning unit is a little bit bulky and trying to find a permanent spot for it to live is a hassle in my house but it wouldn't stop me buying the product! The slimline charger caddy it also comes with is a brilliant idea and will be great for travelling.Overall the shaver looks very smart, the LED lights on the shaver and charging unit are neat. I think the selling point of this shaver is that it's very convenient and it is made for a more comfortable and closer shave especially for those with sensitive skin and for me it really does help. Really what more could you ask for? Actually a carrying case would be nice to keep everything together and more convenient to carry around. Would definitely recommend and think it is worth the price tag considering it'll last 7 years! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The revolutionary new Braun CoolTec Shaver CT2cc.

I often suffer from skin irritation after shaving so being asked to try the new Braun CoolTec CT2cc, designed to minimise the effects of shaving irritation, I thought was an offer too good to refuse.The shaver is advertised as the world’s first shaver with active cooling technology. The active cooling technology part comes from a ceramic cooling element situated in between the cutting blades. This can be controlled separately during use by a cooling control switch. There is a three part cutting system with independently moving cutting foils designed to move with the contours of your face helping to cut hairs growing in different directions. The shaver comes attached with a long hair trimmer to cut and shape longer hair. There is also a travel lock feature on the shaver. When activated it prevents the shaver from being started unintentionally.It comes with a clean & charge station with cleaning solution, a separate charging shell, shaver protection cap and brush. There is no direct point to connect the charger to the shaver without using either the clean & charge station or the charging shell. However, both charging methods come with metal contact points. This allows you to just place the shaver on to the charging unit without having to connect any wires to the shaver. The clean & charge station I thought was a little bulky but it does clean the shaver pretty well and leaves the shaver smelling fresh. The cleaning solution can leave a slight residue; this can be easily wiped off or left to evaporate.The shaver itself has a nice balanced weight to it and feels comfortable in your hand. When turning on the shaver the cooling element requires a few seconds to become effective, but this was not very long and something that was expected. The shaver cuts hair really well and so does not require many passes over the same area. The cooling element works exactly as intended, cooling the skin as the shaver passes over the skin and leaves a slightly cool tingling sensation after you have finished shaving. If your hair is left to grow for a couple of days it also picks up longer hairs with ease. The closeness of the shave is very good and better than my previous shaver.The trimmer is designed to cut and shape longer hair like side burns, and it does this very well. It is quite small in width which provides quite a lot of precision. However, if you are expecting it trim or shape large areas of longer hair you will be disappointed. It is more of a precision trimmer and therefore is smaller than specifically designed beard/stubble trimmers.There is one small negative with this shaver; the Braun 3 series has a lock switch on the foils. The switch when locked drops the front two foils which then allows you to use the remaining foil for precision shaving of hard to reach areas and around the edges of longer hair. This functionality, if the CoolTec had it, would have improved the overall shaving experience.On the whole the Braun CoolTec CT2cc is very good shaver, comparable with previous shavers I have owned and thought very highly of. Price wise I think it is very reasonable for shavers of this kind of standard. Add in the Cooling element which helps to alleviate the burning and itching feeling left post shave, I think this shaver is a must have for anyone with sensitive skin.

As close as it gets

Was really pleased to be invited to try this Braun shaver for free especially for my first campaign. When it arrived I was surprised at how nice a shaver it looked, very modern I thought. I initially charged the shaver on the unit for an hour and gave the shaver it's first try as I couldn't wait to see if it would do what it says it would. I was really impressed with how close a shave it gave me on my older shaver I had to go over the areas 2 or 3 times but with this it literally took me a minute to do all over my chin and neck area, and I was left feeling smooth again, my wife said it felt lovely and she hadn't felt my face that smooth for a while!! Cheeky lady .... I would def recommend this shaver and I think it is priced just right really for a decent shaver, and in love the added benefits that you get on the charger, where it cleans the shaver for you and the shaver itself even let's you know when it needs cleaning...brilliant been as normally my wife has to remind me of all these little things. My he cool technology of this shaver is also another added bonus and I certainly had no irritation from the shaver, where as on my old one I occassionally would get a little rash, not anymore. I have now been using the shaver for 2 weeks nearly and I certainly won't be going back to my old alternative branded one. Well done Braun I love this new shaver and will def be telling me mates down the out about it...not sure will let them have a rub of my face though [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Neat and Repeat

I was impressed with the look of the razor and the easy method of charging. I was very taken with the cooling button and how you could feel this working instantly. This is its main selling point and works well. The actual shave was nice and clean and left my skin feeling smooth. There was no itchiness or redness after and absolutely no nicks or cuts.I haven't used the cleaning system yet but I am sure it is just as impressive.

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 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
