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.

Close Shave

I have very sensitive skin! I have tried many other electric razor in the past and they irritatated my skin and never worked, so I gave up and never used them! This one is totally different! I will never use another razor again! This one Rocks! No irritation, very close shave, no nics, and no razor bumps! I wish I would have found this razor a long time ago.

Great Choice

I normally would not use an electric shaver because it causes my face to break out after a couple of shaves. I used this product because it stated that it was for sensitive skin and I was glad that I tried it. It gave a very good shave and that I have not had any problems with razer bumps at all. I would recommend it for anyone looking a good shaver that saves time and is really for sensitive skin.

Incredible

I'm normally not a big fan of electric razors, but the Braun Series 5 has certainly changed my mind. The shave was close for an electric razor, not quite as close as a hand razor, but still very smooth. The fact that it is 100% waterproof Is a real bonus. I've owned electric razors in the past and this series 5 has surpassed them all.

easy to hold and manipulate

This is my new upgrade. This shaver is skin-sensitive and allows me to maneuver the shaver to get to spots that are easy and hard to reach (especially with the help of the trimmer). It keeps my skin safe and I can use it in the shower as it is waterproof. It's not loud and helps my grooming process be more efficient.

Braun Series 5 5140s Electric Shaver

My first impression of this electric shaver was its slick black and blue color. I couldn't wait to shave but I had to wait a couple of days to let my beard grow.Last night, I started shaving with this electric shaver after half and hour charge. Once I started shaving, I was able to maneuver it around the curves and edges to get my mustache and beard all shaven. The result was a clean close shave and smooth skins without any cut. I was pretty happy with the results.The pros of this electric shaver are its slick color, short charging time, and the contour part of the blades that produces clean close shave for me. I would recommend this shaver to any of my friend.

Its an electric shaver

It is okay. The shave doesn't get as close as a manual razor, nor as close as some better electric razors. It takes much longer to shave with than I hoped for. The good thing about this is if you want to tidy up your side burns or freshen your fess at the end of the day before going out then it serves a purpose/ But I wouldn't want this for everyday use.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Best electric razors

To start this review for the Braun series 5 I'll start with the style itself. I like the colors it comes with (black and blue) and also I really like the built in trimmer. I like that you can use it either with wet or dry skin. In my own perspective I would say it works better on wet skin.Im not really a fan of electric shavers but this one itself I love. I really do recommend it. The shave was as an razor shave but without the burns and cuts.

Braun Series 5 5140s Foil Shaver

THE SHAVER DID VERY WELL ON A TWO DAY BEARD GROWTH, I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS EASY TO USE AND DID A VERY FINE JOB, IT DID NOT GET AS CLOSE AS MY REGULAR MANUAL RAZOR, BUT I ONLY SHAVE EVERY OTHER DAY WHEN USING IT BE CAUSE IT IRRITATES MY FACE, I CAN USE THIS EVERY DAY AND IT IS GREAT ON MY SENSITIVE FACE, I HAVE USED IT NOW FOR A WEEK AND HAVE NOT HAD TO RECHARGE IT, AND WITH THE LOCKOUTOPTION FOR TRAVEL IT WILL NOT NEED CHARGING FOR THIS TRAVEL WEEKEND. IT IS VERY COMFORTABLE TO HANDLE AND FITS MY HAND WELL, IT IS NOT BULKY AND IS LIGHT. THE HEAD SWIVELS BACK AND FORTH TO FIT MY FACE WELL. I GIVE IT A WELL DESERVED THUMBS UP.....I MAY NOT GO BACK TO THE BLADE RAZOR BECAUSE OF LESS IRRITATION FROM THIS ELECTRIC RAZOR, I CAN SHAVE EVERYDAY!

Yes, I recommend this product !

A great shaving experience!

I have had bad experiences with electric razors in the past, so I did not have extremely high hopes for the Braun Series 5 electric shaver. Out of the Box...My first impressions were that the shaver fit comfortably in my hand and had a solid and dependable feel. It seems to be sturdy and well-made, not chintzy.Adjustable Features...I recommend reading the operating manual to get the most out of the product. There is an adjustable pivot feature that makes shaving with this razor a great experience. The shaving head features a full range of motion that allows the shaver to adapt to the curves of your face. There is a button that either locks the shaving head or allows it to pivot freely. It was easy to adjust the pivot control in the middle of my shave. I locked the shaving head for some parts of my face, and unlocked it for other parts. I am still experimenting with the settings to find the perfect combination for my shaving style.I am impressed by how comfortable it is to shave with the Braun.Waterproof!I would like to praise Braun for introducing a waterproof electric shaver that is priced affordably!I really enjoyed using this shaver with shaving cream and being able to rinse the head while I was shaving.It is remarkable that you can even use this product in the shower. This will save a lot of time!4 Stars?The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that the shaving head has to be replaced from time to time, and the replacement heads cost about 1/3 of the price of the new product.
