FAQs

Braun Series 7 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 7 models?
The Series 7 cc shavers have the most advanced display among Braun shavers: a LCD display with very precise indication of charging, battery and detailed hygiene status. It now comes in an elegant noble metal color. On top, the 790cc features the most advanced cleaning center from Braun: it hygienically cleans, charges, lubricates and dries automatically your shaver.

Why would I need a cleaning center when I can clean my Series 7 shaver under water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean&Charge Station is 10 times more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. On top it‘s more convenient, i.e. at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, charged, lubricated and dried automatically.

I already have a cleaning center from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Syncro). Can I use it with the new Series 7 shaver?
No, the Series 7 cleaning center is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean&Charge line and can‘t be used with previous models. The latest cleaning center provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning center.

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 & 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 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 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 battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phone or laptops?
No, the Series 7 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 the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.

Do the Braun Series 7 shavers have a warranty? How long is it?
All Braun shavers come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

Very cool product. I was surprised that its as close as a razor

I travel a lot and this is a must have in my travel kit. I no longer take my razor and gel since it shaves as smooth as a razor. since I bought the Braun series 7, its all I need. I also like the battery life. I can go weeks on a single charge. You can't go wrong with this.

Takes much longer to shave than older models.

I have had multiple good Braun shavers. The Series 7 is not good. It takes too long to get a smooth shave. It takes many passes to get a smooth shave. Older models were much better. This may have to do with hair type, but I doubt it. This shaver does not work well.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Prepair you face befor shaving

I bought the series 7 and have used it for the last year. If you dont prepair your skin and hair before shaving the shaver will have a hard time shaving close and will take many passes before your done..It's a must to use a product like Gillette's Fusion Pro Series before you shave..

A Complete Ruse

After years of shaving with the 8 series Activator (God BLESS the long gone 8595), My 8595 finally bit the dust so I decided to "upgrade" to this model. BIG mistake. It takes much much longer to shave with this shaver, it has an awkward feel to it, and when it does shave it is not as close a shave as the 8 series Activator. Do not buy this razor. A complete waste of money. Luckily, it got mangled within my luggage within 3 months of purchase -- by an airport baggage handler and the airline replaced it. I went on ebay and found an 8595 that had been used and fixed but fully restored for about $110.00 I purchased it and have been happy ever since. On a side note, I bought a 5 series for my luggage so I wouldn't have to keep packing my electric razor each week. It had good reviews. While it is still better than the cruddy Pulsonic (marketing gimick), it can't touch the 8 series Activator. Looks and feels like about a third of the razor the Activator is. Shaves like about 3/4 of the Activator.

No, I do not recommend this product.

MOST ADVANCED FOIL SHAVER

This is the best foil shaver. I have owned foil shavers for over 50 years and Braun shavers for about 30 years. This shaver is much faster than the older models, and offers various settings to customize for the particular face area or type of beard. It can do an average shave very quickly, or an extremely close shave if you take more time, locking the head for some areas. The trimmer flips out about 1 1/2 inch perpendicular to the shaver body. We have two Braun Pulsonic Shavers, an original 790cc and a newer 790cc-4. The earlier shaver suffered a failure of the trimmer mechanism and was replaced by Braun under warranty. The clean and charge overflowed if the drain stopped up. The newer 790cc-4 trimmer has worked perfectly, and the clean and charge has been redesigned so the drain does not stop up. Both shavers will experience paint peeling on the back (from the cleaning solution) after about a year of use. Overall this is an extremely fine shaver, smooth, fast, comfortable, powerful, and the best foil shaver I have used. It is highly recommended. I have several friends who previously used rotary shaver that bought a 790cc-4. They also find the Braun a superior product and are extremely satisfied.

Base unit stopped working.

I absolutely love the shaver, but after a few months of use one of the contacts for recharging wore down and when the cleaning kicks on the vibrations shift the shaver in the base, cutting off the cleaning process. I have been using the shaver since, but have to clean it in the sink instead of the base. Would easily get 5 stars if base still worked, it is an amazing shaver.

Must Have

Bought a series 7 back in 2006 before going to Iraq. The shaver has litterally been through 3 combat tours in Iraq an Afghanistan. I dropped in once about 2 years ago an took it to a Baun repair shop an paid $30 to get it fixed. Its been going strong ever since. Still the best shave from an electric razor I've even gotten. Easy to clean when not using the base. battery lasts about 2 weeks worth of use before It dies with out being charged. I recommend this shaver to everyone. Yes its expensive but the return is well worth it

Yes, I recommend this product !

Lasted less than one year

Im shocked to see Braun marketing this as a razor that lasts 7 years. I have the Series 7 and it worked fine until the razor abruptly stopped working. It will turn on for a few seconds and then shut off. It does this repeatedly if you try to use it. UNACCEPTABLE for a $250 razor. Similarly described problems like this for this razor are plentiful on amazon.

No, I do not recommend this product.
