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.

Cooltec is amazing

I was initially concerned that the manual warned against using any pre-shave products - i.e. no lotion before dry shaving and no foam or gel for wet use in the shower. I called Braun CS and asked if shave products would really damage the shaver and if so, would using them void my warranty. The agent said, "Yes" the warranty would be void! I was incredulous and asked for a supervisor who corrected the previous agent and told me that although using pre-shave products was strongly advised against, the warranty would still stand. Another CS agent emailed me that the Cooltec could not be manually cleaned with soap at all and could not be used in the shower! I knew from the manual that both of these statements were incorrect and she later apologized and confirmed that I was right. Clearly Braun US customer service is not up to speed on this product. The bottom line, I'm happy to report, is that the Cooltec works beautifully in the shower without any foam or gel! I am amazed at the close and comfortable shaves I'm getting. Braun should really promote this as a "plus" since anyone would be happy to save money by never having to buy shave foam or gel again! The cooling technology is very soothing and has greatly diminished the irritation I used to experience. The only reason for deducting one star is that use of the cooling feature drops the shave-time per charge from 45 to 15 minutes.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Pretty Impressed

I received my razor in the mail yesterday. I charged it and tried it out last night. I was impressed. It actually did feel cool and did a good job at shaving. My skin was not irritated at all. I'm excited to keep using this razor.

Braun CoolTec Shaver

Braun CoolTec is a game-changing electric shaver line that achieves what plenty of others like it have tried before and never quite succeeded in accomplishing: a nonirritating shave. For all the attempts to get guys with sensitive shave-skin to use electric razors, it turns out, the solution was simple – just keep it cool. Literally. The problem with all electric razors is that they generate heat. While you're shaving, this warmth is passed on to the skin and often initiates the most common shave irritations, such as redness, ingrown hairs, and breakouts – not to mention being kind of painful at times. So Braun has added a cooling aluminum bar on the tip of the razor, set so that it glides against the skin and cools it off with proprietary Thermo Electric Cooling (TEC) technology. As you shave, the bar comes into contact with your face and chills any sparks causing the irritation process before they can even start. We tried it out with the CoolTec 5cc, and it was one of the first times we got through a full electric shave without having to take a cool-down break. The thing refused to get hot, but it also never got too cold and, strangely, became a pleasure to use, if that can be said about shaving. The cooling bar is set between its two best friends – two SensoBlade foil-style razors and one epilating jaw, both of which are staples on Braun's successful series 3, 5, and 7 shavers. It's waterproof and is made to be used dry or wet, with some gel. A clearly marked button controls the cooling, which, for now, comes in On or Off options and there's only one speed. Some may not like the lack of control in those arenas, but we don't think it's a concern: We repeatedly got shaves smooth enough to make us not care. Some of the other bells and whistles include a robust long razor that's great for trimming sideburns, beards, and mustaches and an optional self-cleaning and charging dock. The shaver stays charged for 45 minutes worth of buzzing and gets enough power from five minutes of charging for one good shave. Overall, adding this to your shave stash is a no-brainer – it's simple, effective, and sure to be imitated.

Best Electric Razor!

I received my Braun COolTec Solo electric razor in the mail a few days ago and it is the best thing that happened to me. The razor was provided to me by a program run by Braun for people to test the product and it absolutely is the best electric razor I've ever used! I am one who has to shave daily. My facial hair grows over night and it just doesn't look good on me. First of all the shave comes out so smooth and cuts very close to the skin without any irritation! While shaving I did feel a bit of a pull but the cooling sensation took it right away! It is really a neat product. I am definitely feeling less irritation after using this razor. There are two minor flaws. The razor is pretty heavy, compared to other electric razors I've used. But its not like work out to shave. Also, it is a little difficult trying to shave under the chin and neck area with the razor it misses a few spots but nothing the back trimmer can't get. Overall the product is great! I am really 100% satisfied with it and god forbid it breaks, I will buy the exact same one again!

Great concept

I have highly sensitive skin and rosacea so shaving is usually a chore. I have always been a Braun fan. This new razor takes it to the next level. The coolness of the cooling element does a great job of decreasing inflammation while shaving. The packaging was ok, but the individual components, each packaged separately, we're a chore to unwrap. It was easy to assemble the charger and actually charge the razor. I actually looked forward to shaving this morning. Overall: a great product!

Finally found a shaver my face agrees with

I've owned many electric shavers but since I have such sensitive skin none of them worked for me. After receiving an invite to try the Braun CoolTec Solo for free I was skeptical but decided to give it a shot since I have to shave everyday for work. It was simple to plug in and charging was pretty quick. I was impressed by the aluminum cooling bar and helped to not irritate my sensitive skin. This shaver provided me with the closest shave from any razor without any irritation. I'm seriously thinking of giving these to my brothers and father for Christmas!

braun cool tech solo

I got the razor from braun. I'm in the military and being able to shave on the go is a nice commodity. This particular electric lasts for quite a bit between charges. The cooling function on it is really a big help. It really does eliminate razor irritation. It doesn't have the closest shave but does do fairly well, and as stated before the cooling effect really helps especially in a field environment where dry shaving is a must. I haven't had it long enough to rate the blade life but I will when I can. Other things to keep in mind is that it is a rechargeable unit so you do have to charge it, it is a razor and must be emptied/cleaned and oiled every so often, and if you need that really close shave a traditional razor is still more effective. I really like this product thought. As I said before the cooling effect really does wonders for it.

New to electric razers.

This is my very first electric razor and was provided to me through a program run by Braun. I'm still getting used to it, as of right now I'm very satisfied but not quite sure if I’m ready to through away my old manual razor just yet. To properly test this razor I let my facial hair grow in for over a week. The first thing I noticed was how well the cooling element works. It feels great on my face especially in the hot shower. It feels like your rubbing an ice cube on your face as you shave. It's defiantly a different experience but the tech alone makes it worth purchasing. According to Braun they say the cooling element is to prevent razor burn and it does so, very well. After trimming my facial hair there was no sign of razor burn anywhere, and I did not use any pre shave lotions. Another positive of the Cooltec over a traditional razor is how close it gets and how smooth it leaves your skin. I actually had a closer shave with the Braun I ever had from my razor, and it left the skin very smooth. After the shave, out of habit, I applied some aftershave lotion that usually burns after a shave. With the Braun I didn't fell a thing, meaning that it did not break the skin in any way shape or form. So for comfort and overall feel this is 5 out of 5. Unfortunately there are a couple negative aspects to this razor, but from what I hear they are an issue with most electric razors. It defiantly won’t win any speed records; I found it much slower to shave my face with the electric razor. I think with time and practice I may speed up the process a bit. Even though it is slower, all though convenience being able to shave without water or shave lotion almost anywhere makes the loss of speed almost worth it. Secondly I had a hard time with some spots under my chin. It took multiple passes to get some of those spots. I feel like it is partially my fault for not knowing how to properly shave with an electric razor, but still it was a little frustrating. This could also have been due to how long I allowed my facial hair to grow in order to properly test this razor. After a month or so ill update post a new review and see if I have been able to iron out these issues. Overall quality of shave 3 out of 5. Final verdict: 4 out of 5 Great smooth shave with zero razor burn, but can be slow at times. I would defiantly recommend to someone who already has an electric razor because it is a heck of an upgrade in the comfort department. I would also recommend this to a traditional razor user who wants to be free of the soaps and aftershave and the ability to shave anywhere. I hope this helped you decide!
