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.

Good razor , really enjoy the Cooltec

I have not used an electric razor on a regular basis for years. This Braun electric shaver was provided via a program run by Braun. The packaging was pretty good. I wish more of the parts would have been placed in bags rather than tight shrink wrap like plastic. The directions could have been much improved. There were mostly just pictures and the wording in the actual instructions left much to be desired. After figuring out how to use the razor it did better than average shaving. The cooltec part of the razor was awesome. There was no redness or irritation. The shave the razor actually left however was still not nearly as good as you would get from a non-electric razor. Cleaning the razor is a breeze with the cleaning system that was included. Adding a liquid cleaning cartridge to the mix did feel like I was going to get hosed in the future by needing to purchase more cleaning cartridges since using regular water is not recommended.

Simply awesome - Braun CoolTec System

Coming from a guy with sensitive skin, I can't say enough about this CoolTec system. The cooling bar is unbelievable. I wondered to myself before I tried it what benefit this would bring to the table. It really is an enjoyable feel to have a cool shave, when activated. I say when activated because this system allows you to turn the cool bar on and off. In addition, I always hated to clean my dry shave razor. With the CoolTec system, you can clean and charge this shaver with the push of a button by putting the razor in the cleaning station. The CoolTec system also comes with a travel case and travel lock feature to prevent it from turning on in your luggage-how cool is that! I received this shaver through a program with Braun and I'm so happy I decided to try it! I would recommend this shaver to any guy that's looking for an easy to maintain razor that leaves you with a clean smooth shave every time!

great on face, decent on head

I recieved my razor yesterday, charged it, and used it today for the first time. On my face, it did a nice job. The cool sensor felt good on the skin, but I seemed to have to press REALLY hard to get the sensation and for the razor to cut. But by pushing hard, I was able to get a good quality shave that felt good! I am follically challenged, and I used it on my head as well. It added about 10 minutes to my normal shave time (over a razor) because it didn't do that well with the contours of my head. It seemed to shave in small strips. but, after shaving, it was near razor quality, just took a while, and again, I needed to press hard for the cooling sensation and for it to shave properly.

Newbie to electric razors

I was pretty nervous to try out an electric razor again, but it was recommended to me and I'm a glutton for new-tech... We'll start there.. The two blades contour nicely to my face without much effort, the cooling feature is refreshing and feels especially nice if you're in a hot shower, and the handle fits easily in my hand and has enough weight to feel a little luxurious. Honestly I thought going electric would save me time, however considering the amount of time I have to put into shaving my neck, I don't think I gained anything in the speed department. In addition, while I can shave in the shower (which may help save time), I would have to install a non-fog mirror to assist me at this point. The cleaner works well, and leaves a scent of alcohol on the razor.. I kind of like that so no complaints. Just smells very clean and fresh. The Shave: I'd give this 4 Stars. It's close, my girlfriend believes it's actually closer than my manual razor (I'm not totally sold on that, but I look clean shaven afterwards). Although I'm not setting any new speed records, I gave this product 4 stars. I wasn't very fast when I first started using a manual razor, so I'm going to give this one the benefit of the doubt that I will get more efficient in how I manage it.

Nearly as smooth as a regular razor!

The Braun CoolTec system came to me through a program run by Braun. The CoolTec bar in the center is very nice while shaving. It's like having an ice cube run on your face while shaving. The shave is nearly as smooth as a regular razor and shaving cream. I shaved my face with several days of growth and the Braun still mad my face smooth. This is a great product and worth the price!

Braun Cooltech

This electric razor is one of the many ones i have recently tried. I used this to shave my face. I would one hundred percent recommend this to anyone who is looking for a crisp clean shave.As you shave the cooling technology comes in and produces a great and smooth feeling shave the only downfall i see with this product is a one hundred and fifty dollar price tag.

The best razor I have ever owned!!!

This is by far the best razor I have ever gotten. I just love how it goes from warm to cold in seconds. It makes me have a clean shave and my face is smooth after and soft. I would recommend this razor to any man that is looking for a clean shave that won't irritate you're face.

New razón is okay

First day use of the razor and it doesn't cut so well. Even irritated me more than a normal blade as I had to go over the area a few times. It seems like a decent razor and I will send updates as I use it more.
