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.

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.

Great Design!

Received my new shaver in the mail and was quite surprised by the ergonomic feel and sleek design. My old shaver is bulky and awkward to hold, but the textured grip and the design of the handle fit my hand like a glove. I also like the way the head of the shaver moves with the curves of my face and jaw line. My first shave this morning was so comfortable, why didn't I try this shaver sooner?

Simply put, I LOVE it!!

Just got the Braun Series 5 electric razor. All I can say is "I LOVE it!!" I have gotten electric razors in the past and they usually say to use it several weeks before your face "gets used" to the new razor. Not this one! From the very first shave, it has shaved close and very comfortable. Not only does it get those short stubbly type whiskers on my chin, but also the longer ones that grow on my neck. No pulling, no uncomfortable aftershave burning. Just cuts the whiskers, long or small, stubbly or wispy. Not to mention the moving shaving head is awesome. It keeps the shaving head against my face to make sure no one part is missing. Like I said... I LOVE IT!! I would definitely buy one again.

Compact but powerful

I received the Braun Series 5 shaver as a member of Bzzagent. First impression this Braun fits well in the hand and looks manly. This Braun Series 5 shaver worked well on a two day growth. The head pops off easy to clean but is hard to put back on securely. When I tried to use the pop up trimmer around my goatee it was difficult to see what I was doing because the bulk of the razor blocks the view of the attachment. This is the reason why I only give it three stars. The shaver does give a close shave. Battery holds a charge for a long time . I have used it for five shaves and the battery is still running strong. Razor comes with oil, a cleaning brush, detachable charging cord and a travel bag. Portable, quick and easy to use.

Braun Series 5 5030 A great shaver you will love

Product information The Braun Series 5 5030 electric shaver is an outstanding shaver. Let me first state that this is the very first electric shaver I have ever owned or used. And because of my great experience with it I seriously doubt I will use a manual razor again. Key benefits: • Pivoting head that helps give a close shave. • The middle trimmer cuts flat and straight hairs very well. • LED lets you know how much battery life is left. • Shave head can be safely washed under hot water. • Soft travel bag and travel cap are included. My brother, who has been using electric shavers for years, tried many times to get me to try an electric shaver but I always refused. Finally the other day we went to the store and I remember hearing good things about the Braun brand and so I turned to my brother and asked him what he thought and he said the 5 series would be a good introduction for me. So I bought it and took it home read the instructions which were included. i was pleased that not only that they were well written but Braun also included a pictured instruction that would help the novice such as myself. I charged up the shaver for almost 50 minutes before I used it. The shaver started with a low hum and I placed it to my skin and I will pleased to discover that I could barely feel it on my skin. But as I looked myself in the mirror, I could see the razor stubble pile up into my sink. After about 3-4 minutes I was finished and there were no cuts but I did have a clean close shave. Cleaning the S5 was a breeze. I unplugged it from the wall socket and placed the shaving head under hot water for about 2 minutes. Then I let it hang and dry itself out in about 10 minutes. I then went to my brother and asked him his opinion. He told me for the first time using an electric shaver I did a good job. That put a smile on my face because I knew that the Braun Series 5 5030 actually did all the hard work and is the real reason for the excellent results. To one and all go and get the Braun Series 5 5030 today and you will not be disappointed. Instead you will become a new convert to electric shavers just like me.

Close shave!

This was a very good shaver! Usually I get tugged and pulled on by the shavers, but this one was not nearly as rough or frustrating.

A More traditional Shaver, but I like This one

I am a Bzzagent and I got the Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver for Free. I have use the Braun 5, five times now. I like the Shape and grip of this Electric shaver. I had some trouble in the neck area where I had to put extra pressure to do a decent job. I worked perfect in other areas. The external blade is very useful. Battery life is good and cleaning very easy. Light for traveling. Compared with traditional shaving with foam and shaver, I think my hair is coming back sooner with the electrical one, and the time I need to shave is about the same. But I appreciate not cutting my skin.

Braun Series 5 provides a great shave!

Over the years, I have stayed away from electric razors because they tend to irritate my skin and I didn't think they did a good job of giving a close shave. I recently received a Braun Series and have to say it has been GREAT. No skin irritation, great close shave. It has a great flexible design. I was able to shave around and very close to stitches from recent surgery. I never expected to go back to electric shaves....but Braun has done it! No more cold wet shaving gel for me in the morning.
