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.

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 really clean and smooth shave

The Braun Series 5 5140s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver is without a doubt the best shaver I have ever owned. It provides the smooth, clean shave of a razor, without the chance of a nick, and takes much less time. I heartily recommend it.

The best razor I have ever had!

Hands down the Braun 5 series wet / dry razor is the best electric razor I have ever used. It features a cordless design and uses a li-ion battery pack that charges fast and lasts for weeks. It is waterproof so cleaning is a breeze. You can dry shave or use your favorite foam or shave gel. The end result is a shave that is as close as any blade razor without the irritation or cuts. The series 5 also has a slide activated trimmer to make short work of anything you can grow. After using this razor for a week I would not use anything else on my face. I highly recommend you try the series 5 before you buy anything else, your face is worth it.

Braun series 5 electric shaver.

Awesome clean shave. Didn't take long to charge. Nice grip, love that the head pivots. Overall just a really nice electric razor. Also worked well with my face still wet from the shower. No burn sensation from using it. Only thing I didn't like was there was no carry/bag to store it in.

My new Electric Razor

I have several electric razors, using many different brands over 50+ years. I have tried a Braun Series 5 one, which I found to be very "likable". It uses a foil screen over the main razor blades and it leaves my facial skin without irritation. That is very important to me because I have a tendency to want to use it more if it doesn't irritate my skin. It has a built in trimmer which allowed me to get a "clean straight" line on my sideburns. I like an electric shaver to be quickly chargeable, easy to use, and leaving me with a smooth, soft, clean feeling on my face and neck. The way it has designed the "floating head" did make it very easy to get to all places on my face and neck. That is a very big "plus" with any electric shaver and this one did that effortlessly moving from one contour to another...very comfortable shave overall. I also liked the shape and how it fit just right in my hand and the picture shows its useful design. I could, and would recommend this shaver to my friends knowing it should provide the same high quality for any of them as it did for me.

5140s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver

Great design. Nice grip texture on both sides of the shaver and the power button. Good feature to have especially if used in the shower. Dual foil shaver cuts down on shaving time and repeated strokes. Also has a trimmer for side burns or goatees located on the back. I was able to shave down my light beard into a goatee. Also has battery and cleaning indicators.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Not the worst...

I think that the Braun razor is an ok electric razor. While it got a fairly close shave the shape of the head made it difficult to get close to my ears and get my neck well. I like the way the beard trimmer is angled because I didn't have to change the angle of my wrist however it does block the view of the area being trimmed. I really liked how fast it charged and the battery life. Overall it is not a bad razor but I wouldn't go out of my way to reccomend it to my friends.

lightweight, powerful & smooth

Looking for a smooth shave with one pass? This is your razor. The Braun series 5 electric shaver cut right through my course stubble and left the sensitive skin on my face and neck smooth without any nicks, tugs or pulling of hair. With the wet/dry capability it gives you the option of using shaving cream. Day 3 and the shavers still has a full charge after just 1 hour plugged in! The flex heads (which can be locked) adapts to your face, neck and hard to reach areas to give you a close-smooth shave. And lets not forget the precision trimmer to edge out side burns, mustaches or beards. 5 out of 5 stars for this lightweight stylish electric shaver!

Braun series 5 5140 Electric foil shaver

I am so amazed by the Braun electric foil shaver. I just shaved off a two week old beard with ease and without any irritation. The swivel head is awesome and makes it easier to get a close shave on my chin and jawlines and the mustache trimmer works nicely and well for for getting those really dense hairs that usually don't get shaved. The appearance of this shaver is very nice and sleek - blue and black, simple, but very cool. Upon opening the shaver it took approximately 10 minutes to fully charge, the performance and battery life is great as well and a charge has 50 minutes of shave time. The clean up is pretty straight forward, a few passes through water and the swivel head is clean and hair free, it is 100 (%) percent waterproof. I highly recommend this wet / dry electric foil shaver to anyone looking for a hassle free, lightweight and cordless shaver. A few extra things about the shaver...It was made in Germany, there is a 2 year world-wide warranty, Braun offers a 60 day back money guarantee, 100 (%) percent waterproof, it has an autosensing motor, Ergonomic grip and the precision trimmer which makes for an accurate edge. Contains: Shaver, guard cap, cleaning brush and the charge cord.

Braun Series 5: Shaver 5140s

I have sensitive skin and I used this for 2 days now and I had no irritation. It's very smooth and cuts my course beard precisely. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars because I don't really care for the design to much. It's definitely worth getting because of the durability and the technology integrated to cut wet and dry hair with no issues. Also the charging speed is amazing and almost never dies.

Yes, I recommend this product !
