FAQs

Braun Series 5 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.

What's the difference between the different Series 5 models?
The 5090cc model comes with high quality metal surfaces and has the most advanced display among Braun Series 5 shavers: a very precise 5 level battery status indicator with low charge warning as well as a travel lock and hygiene indicator. On top, the 5090cc features the advanced Intelligent Clean&Charge Station from Braun: it cleans, charges, lubricates and selects cleaning program at the touch of a button - so your shaver feels like new every day. For more information about the rest of the Series 5 range, please consult the Series 5 Model overview.

Why would I need a Clean&Charge Station when I can clean my Series 5 shaver under tap water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean&Charge Station is significantly more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. It's also more convenient: at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, charged and lubricated automatically.

I already have a Cleaning Center from my previous Braun shaver (Syncro, Activator, 360, etc.). Can I use it with the new Series 5 shaver?
No, the Series 5 marks the introduction of a new generation of shavers with fully revamped technology and can’t be used with previous Cleaning Centers.

Can I buy a solo shaver and upgrade with a Clean&Charge Station later?
No, shaver and Clean&Charge Station are designed to interlink during the cleaning procedure. Shavers being sold without the Clean&Charge Station, don’t have the technology to connect accordingly.

How often do I need to exchange the Clean&Charge refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the Clean&Charge Station 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 & Subscribe 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 over a weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin. In difficult to shave areas like under the nose you can also use the MultiHeadLock switch to lock the shaver head and manually set one of five available shaver head angles as it suits best to your needs. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. In order to use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upwards.

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.

A high quality, dependable shaver

I was very pleased with this razor and found it easy to use, right out of the box. Given my morning rush, the best advantage of this razor is that it gives me a good shave in about half the time it usually takes to use my disposable razor. I will say though, that the shave itself is close, but not as close as a manual razor. However I'm willing to trade that for the assurance I won't be nicking my face ever again. Design-wise, the black and red looks cool and the grip rests well in my hand with very little vibration. The ability to lock or pivot the head is helpful for the different contours of my face and the added trimmer made it easy to handle my sideburns and around the ear. Thanks Braun.

Braun makes my morning that much easier

The Braun 5030 electric shaver is a great tool. Out of the box I just had to charge the unit for a few hours and it was 100% ready to use. A week later, I still have battery power left for what feels like many more uses. The flexible pivoting head, which can be locked into one of several positions, allows the head to maintain level contact without having to think about it. This keeps all trimming heads in contact with your face for a quick and comfy shave. After using, a quick release of the cutter heads allows for a rinse of the heads and brush-out of the main body, and the unit is clean. So far I really like the speed and convenience of the electric shaver. I used to have an old shaver (name withheld to protect the inferior) that did OK, but the modern features and tech of the Braun make it a much better item. I look forward to long term evaluation of this shaver to see if I can get the 18 months life they report for the cutter heads. If they do last that long, this will be an awesome shaver and and awesome value. Two thumbs up for the Series 5 5030s shaver from Braun.

Braun Series 5

In the past when It came to electric shavers I always had the frame of mind that they just weren't for me. After receiving The Braun series 5 electric shaver I've done a complete 180!!!. The reason why I never chose to use electric shavers in the past was because of how it made my skin feel uncomfortable/ bumpy days after the shave. After using the Braun series 5 shaver it was exactly the opposite very clean close shave NO irritation easy to handle light weight and extremely easy to clean. My only criticism is why didn't I use it earlier.

Delivers with amazing results

Upon initial receipt pf this razor, I must admit that Iwas a little skeptical due to the fact that I have been a single blade user for years. Coming from a military family a close shave is as important as anything. I was blown away with the first use of this razor. Closest shave since my last barbers' shave! Highly impressive.

Closest shave I have ever had from a home razor

I received this product from Braun to try and I cannot say enough good things about this razor. First of all this razor is so sleek and modern looking and yet so comfortable feeling to hold in the hand.I really like how fast the razor charges and how long it holds a charge after just the initial charging, most razors I have owned need to be charged at least for 4 hours before having received enough charge to last for a shave. I love the trimmer as well, it just slides open and I find that it is precise enough for me to be able to trim anywhere I need to and give me perfectly straight sideburns. The razor itself gives me an extremely smooth shave, my wife couldn't stop touching my face to feel how soft it was and was so happy I wasn't "scratchy" in her words,yet it never felt like it dragged on my skin. I cannot say enough good things about this razor!

Charles dye

I have used other electro shavers before but always seem to go back to a regular razor blade because the electric ones seem to pull more than cut but this razor floats along my face and gives me a great shave. I would recommend it to my friends

The best shaver yet!!!

This shaver is great! I had a very clean shave and no irritation. I normally get bumps after using electric shavers but had no issues. The cleaning was extremely easy for this shaver as well. I didn't see any areas where hair could jam up the shaver. Charging is fast and easy and it holds a charge. I would definitely recommend this shaver for speed, accuracy and ease of cleaning.

Braun 5030 Electric Shaver

Definitely an upgrade over my old Remington. I've only used the Braun 5030 a few times so far but it gives a very clean and close shave without tugging or causing any irritation. The only negative so far is the long hair trimmer width is less than my old shaver. I do keep some facial hair so I use this part frequently. Overall I would definitely recommend this shaver for the close shave and ease of cleaning.

My first shave

Worked well on the first use. Have not used an electric razor in a long time because they did not leave me with a smooth shave. My first attempt with this turned on better than I expected. It left a a couple rough spots, but I am looking forward to the next shave to see if it gets better.

Must Try BRAUN Shaver

The BRAUN Shaver 5 5030 series is wonderful for a quick shave. It doesn't leave razor burn on your face, it glides real easily. Not only does it have the razor shaver but it also has the Precision trimmer. It is great to shape your side burns or mustache. I would recommend this to every male out there. It has the flexible head on it that can move across your face easily. It also has it where you can lock the head in place. Not only can you use it on your face, you can use it where ever you don't want hair at like your chest. Everyone need to hurry and go out and get one. This would be a great gift for yourself or another special person in your life.
