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.

Good deal off Amazon

Just got it, used it several times and so far so good. Good design and functionality, easy to set up. Early indications are this is going to be a good purchase. My only concern s that Braun doesn't register their products.

Yes, I recommend this product !

It worked ok until it didn't.

I was really excited to try my first braun shaver. The design was pretty good other then the clean and charge station which didn't seem to sit down all the way on the base. The 5090cc has a classy looking design, but the lock switch didnt really stop the head piece from moving. The shaver did a pretty good job of getting most hair but had problems around the jaw lines. The cherry on top was when the clean and charge station button stopped responding, after only 2 month's of owning it!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Braun Wont Honor warranty!!!

My grandparents gave me this shaver as a gift. Because my Grandparents were super generous buying me a $200 Gift for Christmas but didn't supply me with a receipt, and it would have been rude for me to ask them for it, Braun will not honor their 2 Year Warranty. They will look for any loophole to not stand by their product. It stopped working 6 months after I received it with the motor going bad. Spoke with the Customer service representative Alicia, and Spoke with the repair center, they kept saying that they won't honor any of their warranties without a receipt. DONT GIVE THIS PRODUCT AS A GIFT!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Excellent Quality Shaver

I own the Series 5 Braun Shaver and am very satisified with the quality and the shave. This is a step up from my Series 3 and a step below the Series 7The Series 5 shaves closely and gets my Neck and Chin shaved as well as my Series 7The charge lasts several days and is powerful. As for cleaning my Shaver. I don't use the Cleaning Dock but instead I wash the Shaver Head with hot Water and then tap the Head lightly to remove any Debris. This is an awesome Product made by Braun and I highly recommend it

Boxing up to return

This is my third Braun razor and definitely the worst one. It sounds cheap, shaves cheap. The trimmer is useless. After cleaning, the head is wet a day later. Save your money.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Smoothest Shave Ever

I purchased the Braun Series 5 shaver 3 weeks ago. After using a rotary wet/dry shaver for several years, I got tired of the "mess". It took a while to get used to shaving before washing my face but it works. I use Lectric Shave beforehand because I have oily skin and it helps set up the beard. I have found this shaver to give me the smoothest shave I have ever had. The cleaning system keeps the shaver free of debris and makes it feel like it is brand new every morning.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Intuitive, Ergonomic, Beautiful, Efficient

Firstly, upon opening this product, you can more-or-less throw away the manual. Granted, the manual has useful information, but it's so easy to use this product without having to read anything because of its intuitive design. From initial use, to cleaning, the Series 5 can be operated without much thought.Secondly, the shaver is incredibly ergonomic. The swiveling head makes it easy to adjust to your face's angles, and it fits in the hand very nicely, with a clearly well-noted and even weight.Thirdly, the thing just looks amazing. Setting on my bathroom sink, I can't imagine how another shaver could look nicer.Lastly, it's efficient. I shaved this morning in just a couple of minutes with a two-day stubble. No need for pre-shave liquid - it simply gets rid of stubble on its own. No need for extra product.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Is this a Braun

I have had this Razor for a few months now and each shave has gotten worse. One I finish with my Braun, I then take a regular razor and follow-up to get rid of the missed hairs and stubble. My series 5 does not shave close enough to even warrant me using it.This was a HUGE waste of money. Highly disappointed.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Easy and fast to get a very good shave! (Braun Series 5 5090 Clean & Charge)

I am very impressed at how easy and quick it is to get a very good shave with this razor. I sometimes go for a week with out shaving and my wife hates it. However, with the Braum Series 5 razor, it is not nearly as much of a chore and the results are nearly as good as if I used a regular razor.I have an older Series 3 razor and this is way better. It shaves closer and easier. The pivoting head is an excellent feature which lets you keep the razor at a near 90 degree angle anywhere on your face.I haven't used the self cleaner yet, but my facial hair isn't super thick so I just tap out the hair and rinse it under a faucet. I also read that you can use alcohol to rinse of the excess water so it won't rust. I haven't owned it long enough so I will try that after the cleaning solution is used up.I also have read that it is hard to get under you nose, but it's no that bad if you make an extra effort to make sure you get it.All-in-all, I love this razor and would recommend it.
