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.

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.

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.

Great cordless razor!

I love being able to shave while taking a shower and this razor performs beautifully wet or dry. I am amazed at how quickly the battery charges and I can get more than a week of shaves before needing to charge again! This is actually the first electric razor that has given me a close shave without irritating my sensitive skin. This is a keeper for me!

Good for a quick shave.

My honest opinions on this shaver are varied but are as follows. Pros: It has a good hand feel, strong motor, the trimmer on the back is nice, charges quick and easy to clean..Cons: It takes multiple passes just to get somewhat close, the shaver head pivots easily even when locked in place, and the cartridge eject button is right where my thumb lands ...All in all pretty good I would use this shaver as a follow up to a razor in between shaves or if I were traveling...

Best. Razor. Ever

I have been using a manual razor my entire life, which I thought was pretty great. I was dead wrong. This Braun Series 5 is hands down the best razor I've used and blows the high-quality manual razor I've been using out of the water. Closest shave I've ever gotten, super comfortable and easy to use, waterproof, and charged really quickly.

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.
