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.

Not All Sruff Gown

I enjoyed the Braun Series 5 the first shave, that was until later in the day when I looked in a mirror at work and saw how patchy it shaved me. I've never had an issue using an electric shaver before in regards to patchiness. So next shave I went more detailed and really focused on shaving all parts of my face looking closely in mirror doing so. It took me about double the time my other shavers would, still leaving a weird patchy neck beard that I had to go in with another shaver to clean up. For my face, it works well, I specifically love the side burn shaper, but in terms of full coverage shaving it was not ideal. Another aspect I really enjoyed was how easy the cleanup was. Simply take off the foil razor portion, exposing the inside, use the little cleaning brush provided and maybe blow a few left over stubbles away and BAM your clean. I feel like the more usage of this, the better I will get at it. But from first shave it was not an easy use.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Smooth, Clean Shave

Loved the Braun Series 5. It hurt a little if my stubble had got too long but otherwise, it was smooth and clean and easy cause I could shave with it in the shower. Battery has lasted a month so far and not slowed down. Plus it looks really sharp too. Highly recommend if you are looking for a great electric shaver.

Braun series 5 - outstanding

Working in the Corporate world, It is important that I am always clean-shaven. For the longest time, I struggled with irritation from shaving... sometimes even nicks - especially around the neck. After trying blades, rotary and many others, I discovered the Braun 5140. The shave was nothing less than spectacular! Being able to wet shave made for the most comfortable shave I have ever had. Zero in-grown hairs and zero irritation. The shape of the razor fit perfectly in my hand and was a joy to use.Since I have to shave every day, why not shave with something that I enjoy? This razor delivers everything you could want in a razor. Plus, being made in Germany, you know the quality is top notch.Absolutely love my Braun!

So smooth but not great for thick beards

Having never used a foil shaver previously, I was very excited when I got my Braun Series 5 5140s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver. The rotating head and wet/dry usage definitely caught my attention and intrigue. As a guy with a very thick and well-maintained beard, my main use of any shaver is for my neck and cheeks. Upon first use, I noticed that the Braun Series 5 didn't cause any irritation, It was so smooth against my cheek and worked perfectly. Now there isn't a lot of hair on my upper cheek, so this was an easy job. The next text was my neck.I don't shave my neck every day because it's quite a pain. My 5 o'clock shadow shows up before noon, and most shavers end up nicking my neck or causing ingrown hairs. The Braun Series 5, while causing no irritation and feeling super smooth with that rotating head, didn't quite have the necessary "oomph" to cut through my extremely thick neck hair. It took me a solid 15 minutes of back-and-forth, up-and-down, side-to-side before all of the hair was gone.Now the end result was nice and smooth, but the time it took to get there was more than a burden. For someone with a less thick beard, this shaver probably works wonders. For me, it was just another shaver that didn't quite "cut it".

Yes, I recommend this product !

Good All-Around Electric Shaver

This is an elegant, well-made electric shaver that looks good out of the box. For features, this is a wet/dry shaver, so it can be used at the sink or in the shower. There is a locking mechanism that allows the user to lock or release (pivot) the trimmer head. It has a separate pop-up trimmer on the back side and a single power button on the front side. It also has LEDs to show battery level.On the plus side, it has an ergonomic design that fits well in the hand moves nicely along the face and neck. It also holds a charge for long time (I haven't had to re-charge in weeks) and the LEDs are an appreciated feature to see the current battery level. The final shave is close to the skin and I'm very pleased that there is no uncomfortable razor burn, which tends to happen with new devices.On the other hand, as with most electric razors I've tried, this one does a decent job with short hairs, but struggles with, say, a week old beard. I've used similar devices that have a powerful trimmer attachment to take down the long hairs before finishing with the close shave. The pop-up trimmer on this shaver is a bit flimsy for that job. Additionally, both the shaver and trimmer operate at all times. I'd like to see a larger, more powerful trimmer with perhaps its own power.Overall, this is a good, quality electric razor that will meet the expectations of most users.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Braun Series 5 Shaver

Being a long time razor guy, I decided to give electric shavers a shot. The electric shaver of choice was the Braun Series 5 5140s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver.Upon opening the package I was impressed by the solid design charactreristics of the shaver. The shaver is well built, has a comfortable grip and has an ergonomical design. I couldn't wait to give it a try!After charging the battery, I decided to try my new electric shaver both dry and wet. I also wanted to see how when the razor performed with a 24 hour shave vs. a longer 2 - 3 day shave.VERDICT..... Stick with your razor!For me, the electric shaver gave me satisfactory results both wet and dry if I shaved within a 24 hour period or less. It failed miserably if I let my shaving go to 2 - 3 days of growth. I also had to pull out my razor each tome I shaved to get close enough to my gottee and mustache.I experimented with the Braun Series 5 5140s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver for about three weeks before I threw in the towel and went back to my razor.If your a razor guy think twice before going electric....

No, I do not recommend this product.

Great razor, less time grooming

I have given this razor a few weeks, as I didn't want to base my review off of one or two uses. I have to say that overall I am loving it. The way the head pivots while I am shaving is a great feature. It gives a close shave, maybe not as close as a traditional razor, but I shave every day anyways so that is not a concern. The built in trimmer is great, I can shave and then flip it around in my hand and use the trimmers. Having this razor has cut down my time in the bathroom, it holds its charge very well and is easy to clean. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I do still use a disposable razor in a few areas. I would recommend this razor to anyone who is looking for a razor that does it all and cuts down on your time grooming.

Braun Serues 5 5140 Razor

I love this razor. I have tried at least three different electric razors and shavers, and this is by fair the best I have used. The adjustable head makes it so easy to reach difficult areas and angles by becoming quickly adjustable. I love that is have a trimmer for someone like em who has thick side burns. The battery life is spectacular. I've had it for just over three to four weeks, shaved with it every morning, and still haven't had to recharge it once, so it would be gray for anyone who travels a lot. Easy to remove the razor head to clean up hair and buildup. Would recommend to anyone.

Mediocre at best

I really want to like this style of foil shaver. Its so easy to use and clean. Its got nice styling and holds a charge. But...the closeness of the shave just will not cut it. I have a pretty average beard, dark brown, not very heavy and average thickness hair. It seems like I should be able to use this type, but it just doesn't perform as well as a good old fashioned multi-blade razor. When I did try it, it just left me with a 5 o'clock shadow from the start of the day and that just won't cut it for daily use.I will add, I haven't found success with any automatic shaver, so if you are already used to a foil shaver and find that it works well for you, then you'll probably like this unit. It pivots around curves well and if I was blonde it would probably be pretty good.Last try, I figured I'd give it to my wife and see if she likes it, but alas, it didn't meet her needs either. She found that it didn't cut leg hair at all, even after just a few days of growth the very thin hair just seemed to get missed entirely.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Converted BRAUN MAN!

The Braun Series 5 5140s Shaver is a great experience no bumps no worries. I'm a first time electric shaver user, LOVED IT!, I Use it in the shower & use it on the go. For me I have dimples and it's easy to shave with this shaver that has multiple lock settings that help get every hair without the uncomfortable nick and tugs, no need to shave multiple times in one area to get a close shave. I also love the ridges on the handle, which work great when you have soapy or wet hands. A big plus is the precision trimmer that slides out to create a straight line on your beard or sideburns. I truly recommend the Braun Series 5 5140s because the battery has long lasting life, displays the life so you always know when it's getting low, i personally charge it about once every 2 weeks it's extraordinarily convenient since I'm always on the go. I can always rely on my trusty shaver.

Yes, I recommend this product !
