FAQs

Braun Series 3 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.

Why would I need a Clean&Charge Station when I can clean my Series 3 shaver under water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean&Charge Station is 10x more hygienic than clean it under the tap. On top it’s more convenient, i.e. at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, de-germed, charged and lubricated automatically.

I already have a cleaning station from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Syncro). Can I use it with the new Series 3 shaver?
No, the Series 3 Clean&Charge Station is part of the updated Clean&Charge line offered by Braun and can’t be used with previous shaver models. The updated Clean&Charge system provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning & charging system.

How often do I need to exchange the cleaning center refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the cleaning center 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 & susbcribe 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 during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. We included a replacement part indicator in the display to ensure you know when to exchange the cutter parts, in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.

Does the Braun Series 3 have a warranty? How long is it?
All Braun shavers come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

A very good shaver for the road or home.

I've had Braun shavers for over 20 years. I've been mostly satisfied, but always felt they were unable to get all the hairs on my neck. My hairs on the lower side of my jaw near my neck tend to grow inward so don't pick up easily by electric shavers. This model is the first where it is able to pick up these hairs and works well in the shower or dry. The shaver comes with a stand to minimize space used on the counter. Keeping an eye out you can find it on sale for around $80 or less. Doesn't require the cleaning liquid I just run mine under the faucet with the outer foil removed to remove the hairs from the blades. Also use canned air nozzel to blow out if the cutter head gets clogged which occurs if you use shaving creams and don't rinse out immediately.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Bad product

I decide to buy this razor after having my other electronic razor for 5 years. It was a terrible purchase. The razor doesn't retain cut facial hair and it always makes a huge mess. It does not shave the neck and chin very easily. The "close shave" feature does not work on the upper lip area; the exact place it is supposed to be for. If I hadn't thrown away the box I would return it. I will never purchase anything Braun again.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Follow-up to previous review: water intrusion

I did the responsible thing with my 380 S4 and destroyed it to get the batteries out. That was a job in itself, but what I found isn't what I expected. There was moisture throughout the shaver including in and around the motor, switch, PCB and the batteries. It's failure was not solely due to a faulty switch but due to water intrusion.

A waste of money

I've always wanted to try shaving with an electric shaver and I thought that Braun was the best so I finally took the plunge and bought one. Unfortunately, I was mistaken. The shaver itself does an ok job, but the pop-up trimmer is useless. It doesn't trim sideburns and it doesn't trim around beards. if I lift it up off the skin surface, it seems to cut the longer hairs, but it won't cut the stubble on the face itself. I finally purchased another brand of shaver and it works just fine. I know it's not the shaver because I have two of them (the other was my Father-in-laws) and they both have the same problem. A very poor investment to say the least.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Excellent Shaver

I've now used it since 2013 and what a wonderful shaver this has been. I've traveled worldwide carried this with me and shaves my thick facial growth so well. The contour size is so easy to hold and the sound of the shave is very quiet. Cleaning it is very simple. Being able to wet or dry shave is a wonderful feature to have. I've tried several other Braun's over the past 30 years and this is to date my favorite.
