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 Braun’s 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.

Brilliantly innovative tool for sensitive skin

Being part of a promotion by Braun, I have used the electric razor for a some time now and would like to provide some thoughts to help guide your electric razor decision. I am a bit of a razor junkie, owning the Braun Series 7, Activator, and also a few models from Norelco. Since I have fairly sensitive skin, even though each razor performed well, all left varying degrees of skin irritation behind. I usually mitigated this by using after shave or lotions, but what this razor has done is very innovative and honestly has saved me a lot of money in aftershave and skin lotions. For the purposes of this review, I will compare to the Braun Series 7 because it is similar in design and branding, as well as a traditional Gillette razor because many will be coming from this setup. Shaving Performance The shaver performs at a high level and with some time you will get results comparable to a Gillette razor. Compared to a Series 7 the results are similar, but because the Series 7 has a faster motor, less passes are required, although this benefit also comes at the expense of higher prices. Each shaver has Braun Optifoil screen which is essential a set of oblong shapes on the foil to catch more hairs. I can attest that compared to many of Braun’s older shavers, this feature does work very well. Battery life is very similar to the Series 7, giving about 50 minutes of shaving even is the CoolTec is activated. To give a good perspective, I have ranked them below: Performance – Series 7/CoolTec/Gillette Results – Gillette/Series 7/CoolTec Comfort Comfort for the CoolTec is paramount primarily due to the CoolTec sensation that is provided while shaving. The science behind this feature is that as you shave; your skin temperature goes up, thus causing irritation with further shaving. Keep your skin cool helps reduce this occurrence, therefore no need for aftershave/lotions! The cooling feature takes ten seconds or so to kick in, but it makes for very comfortable results. Compared to the Series 7 and Gillette razors, comfort is night and day for those with sensitive skin. With the Series 7, there is harshness to your skin which creates bumps or bleeding, I would assume due to both the speed of the shaver and heat level of the skin. The CoolTec shaves at a slower clip and cools the skin down, which means it will take longer to shave, but you will be very comfortable with that shave. Convenience In terms of convenience, both the CoolTec and Series 7 have cleaning bases. What this allows you to do is after each shave, you can place the razor in an accompanying base which will automatically clean and charge the razor. This removes an maintenance you may need to do (other than the 18 month blade change) because the shaver is cleaned and lubricated after each shave. It should be noted that these cleaning cartridges do run about $1 USD each week, so it is an investment. In lieu of this, you can clean the shave under running water and invest in a bottle of Shaver Saver to get the same results but with more manual intervention. Overall the shave base is nice in that my sink real estate is saved a bit by sprawling cords and shaver parts drying all over the place, and I feel the investment is worth it. Price The price component is a big differentiator for many, with nearly a $100 USD difference between the two razors. What you will find is that the Series 7 is the Lexus of the group, with very fast performance, extra bells and whistles (three modes of shaving), and nicer aesthetics. This razor is excellent and honestly you can’t go wrong selecting this on a deal. The CoolTec shaver is very much a specialty razor. Essentially you will get the same results as a Series 7 because the foil is very similar. The difference will be in shaving time because of the slower motor on the CoolTec. What you gain is the ability to cool your face down and greatly increase comfort during the shaving process. This makes for one of the only electric shavers today tailor made for those with sensitive skin. Summary To summarize, Braun has a real winner here and a very big product differentiator from competitors. Being that the CoolTec is essentially a Series 3 with a cooling module, I can see them putting this feature on all Series models in future iterations because it works so well. Braun packages this German-made shaver very well and includes Carrying Case, Cleaning Base, Fluid, and Shaver. Of the 15+ shavers I have used in my lifetime (and some manual shaving too), this razor is by far the best because instead of making the motors bigger and faster, Braun decided to focus on comfort as well. Not having to spend countless dollars on aftershave/lotion alone makes this razor a great return on investment. Should you not like the razor, Braun does offer a 60-day return period, but I doubt you will need it!

Nice shaver, terrible directions

I received my Braun Cooltec shaver through a program run by Braun. It came nicely packaged with the instructions right on top. However, the many pieces and lack of instructions took way too long to decipher. Eventually, I was able to get the cleaning station setup and I think it correct. The shaver cuts very nice and closer than my older rotating electric shaver. The cool bar in the Braun gives a nice cold sensation which seems to help reduce irritation. Its a nice change in design which gives me another option while shaving. Its easy to turn the cool bar on and off with no problems. Overall, I am very satisfied with the Cooltec shaver and will be continuing to use it as my new primary electric shaver. Thanks Braun!

Awesome Shave!!!

I received my shaver last night when I got home from work.. opened it... set it up... and had trouble sleeping last night waiting for the morning to try it out. I love it!! I didn't get any irritation from shave. The coolness of the razor was great. The shave was incredibly close. I could not have asked for a better shave. The ergonomics of the razor was great too. Very easy to hold. I love how you can either use the cleaning system or just wash it with soap. They really did a great job with this design!

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE

wow...how can I even put this into words...well first off I had finally recieved my braun cooltec shaver and was BLOWN AWAY. I am so used to using my other shaver I didn't realize there was so much better out there until I used this one. What I love most is I plugged it in and not even five minutes later I was able to shave my entire face. I am so happy I got this product it's by far the best shaver I have ever used in my life and I don't think anyone could top it and I would recommend anyone even everyone to buy this shaver.

Only the first week, but WOW!

I received this from a program run by Braun and let me tell you, it is great! No razor burn or irritation, which is rare for me after changing to a new razor. The CoolTec (which is like a little freezer element on the face) is great and really helps to keep my skin feeling comfortable. This razor cuts just as close as some more expensive ones I have had and doesn't require shaving gel to offer a comfortable shave. That is a total plus in my book!

Braun Cooltec is COOL!!

I just experienced the best shave of my life. Braun was running a program that afforded me the opportunity to try out the Braun Cooltec system. I never knew that shaving at such cooler temperatures could make that big of a difference but it did! I don't think I can ever go back to conventional razors or shaver again! This new technology is amazing from the closest shave ever with no irritation to talk about. Even the charging station that cleans the shaver for me after I'm done...........Well done Braun! Well done!

Braun CoolTec is a cool device to have and clean

I have received my Braun CoolTec System yesterday and I used it once I got home. It really cuts the hair close and I love the device between the blade that make it feel like a nice cool shave to relax your skin. I also enjoy the fact that you have many options to clean it. 1. Manually clean it with the included brush. 2. You can just take the blade off the rinse it under the water for a faster cleaning or 3. If your in a rush you can just put it in the self cleaning machine (included) and it will rinse clean and sterilize the blades for a nice clean shave the next time you use it. One final feature you can use it in and out of the shower I highly recommend this device for any one who is looking for a easy cleaning close cut shaving device.

So "Cool"!

So seriously, this razor is kind of amazing. I just received the razor through a customer review program with Braun and I couldn't be happier! I've been an electric razor guy forever. I've done the rotary. I've done the foil. I've done the wet/dry. I've pretty much done it all. Couple of other things - in the past, electric razors don't get it done for me. Or at least they haven't. I shave with one every morning. Every morning. And then every morning, I shave with a disposable razor after that. The electric doesn't get close enough. And it irritates my skin (likely because I need to shave so much). And then came the CoolTec. It's different. Really different. For starters, the shave was really close. For the first time in years, I haven't had to give it a once over with the disposable razor. And really, isn't that what we all want anyways - the close shave? Where I'd go over my face over and over with my Panasonic ES8103S Shaver just to get halfway clean shaven, the CoolTec was probably 1/2 the passes. And the hard to reach spots traditionally like the neck and jawline? The CoolTec seemed to handle that w/ no problem. And the Cool bar thing was really sweet. I didn't know what to expect but it was honestly a very comfortable shave. It felt great and seemed like it was heck of a lot less irritating. The contrast of the hot shower and the nice cold bar made shaving a pleasure. I love the innovation! I was in need of a new razor as my Panasonic's display was a mess and I'm pretty sure my beard beat the blades into submission. I can say that the CoolTec is an excellent replacement. I would absolutely recommend it.
