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.

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.

Best Shaver I Have Ever Owned

So I have a beard. Not super long, but a beard. And I have such a frustrating time trying to clean it up and making sure my razors are doing the job I need them too. When I got this shaver, I felt like I was opening a major piece of technology. Its definitely the "smartest" shaver I have ever owned. 100 percent waterproof, self cleaning, travel friendly, and holds up surprisingly well on a single charge. Even the trimmer on the back of the shaver is wicked accurate, you have to go over the same spot multiple times hoping everything is even. When you're done, you drop the shaver back into the (INCLUDED) charging dock, hit the cleaning button, and let it do its thing until you're ready to use it again.

Surprise shave!

I think this is a great product. I remember feeling like a child unwrapping a christmas gift as I was opening up the package. The stand, the solution were nice. The instructions were a hard 0/10. Not simple at all, not user friendly, and not easy to use or read. I was left to youtube and my own instinct. Next I set it up and charged it for a few hours before I used it. The machine struggled to remove my beard. I havent shaved in two weeks so I do have a full beard but it is on the lighter side. It was trimming my hairs ever so slightly. So I used own old Braun machine to get ride of the scruff and used this one to smoothen things out.This shaver gave me the smoothest shave I have ever had in my entire life. Smoother than a razor shave. I only shaved yesterday so i am curious to see how my skin will react, if this will warrant ingrown hairs, acne, or irritation. I enjoyed the dings and whistles however I wish it was easier to use. Simply putting up a youtube video of how to properly utilize this technology would be great. What I wish I had before receiving this product is better instructions. If you are looking for a shaver that will provide a SMOOTH feel this is the product for you!! The last time my skin was this soft and smooth was before I started growing a beard. the machine was easy to clean and frankly fun to clean. Since it is such a big machine and is plugged into the electricity, I would add a small radio/watch/music accessible feature. If you are going to have a product take up that much space on a bathroom shelf, I would say it should double its purpose so space never becomes an issue. Smooth shave, i have a big mole and BIG cut on my check and this shaver was so sensitive to them and didn't even hurt me once. My skin is sensitive to towels and the way i dry it. If you have sensitive skin, prefer smooth shaves, or just want an awesome shaver, this is the product for you!

So good, you want to shave again

The shave is fantastic and simple. The cleaning is pretty good too. This shaver is designed for both wet and dry shaving. I would say that the shaving experience was very good, and fairly quick. The shaver showed no hesitation, and the shave was not uncomfortable at all. It buzzed right through my growth, even in the thickest areas. I did notice that I could not seem to get close enough to my nose and sideburns. The razor is equipped with a sideburn trimmer feature, which I tried for these areas. It did well, but not great. Overall, my shaving experience was very good.It was a bit of a learning curve using this thing. I know they said to hold this perpendicular to the skin when shave, but I didn't hear anything about the amount of force to use. I would go over a tough area harder and harder and it would take forever to finally shave it. Finally i discovered that if you let this barely rest on your skin, you get the best shave. Also note that the hair raising feature is in the middle, so you're only going to get the best results if you swipe over an area with the entire shaver head as opposed to just one side of it.After the shave comes the cleaning. What is usually the moment of regret for other shavers, the cleaning base made it more palleable. The cleaning base is angled and has larger holes in the razor holder part so the cleaning solution and whiskers easily drain from the bottom into the plastic reservoir below. It takes a week or so to get used to putting it at a specific angle instead of straight down but it may just be me. Overall, this is a GREAT electric razor, and I am proud to have it! I will be using it exclusively now, and have a mostly positive impression of this razor and the Braun brand.

Easy To Use and Clean Cut

The Braun Series 5 Shaver 5197cc is the most amazing shaver that I have ever had. Let me explain this a little bit. What makes this product stand out are the blades that it uses. In the middle, there is something called the middle trimmer. This usually captures the difficult hair that I have on my face and trims it off without any problem. I really like this feature as a matter of fact because I used other shavers in the past and I would have to go through it specifically multiple times before it would even be shaved off. Then on the 2 sides are blades called sensofoil. This allow all the hair to be trimmed off. I found this product super easy to trim hair and doesn't provide a burning sensation. Let's review the build quality of the shaver. When you first get it, it looks like a super luxurious shaver already. It not only looks well designed and sleek, but also keeps a good grip when using it. Especially when it is wet. This shaver is also good too because you can use it in the shower. It is waterproof so it shouldn't cause any problems. It is easy to use in the shower, but when I used shaving cream it worked super well too. It provides a nice glide when using shaving cream so it makes it feel a little bit more refreshing. I also tried using it dry and the results were great too. It wasn't as nice as putting on shaving cream, but it still felt nice and clean cut. It didn't cause any burning sensation and was a very clean cut. The battery life, I thought was pretty decent. It wasn't the greatest battery life that I have seen, but it wasn't bad either. It lasted me around 40-50 minutes which is more than enough for a few days. It is advertised at 50 minutes of shaving so I would say it is pretty accurate of what it is describing. What I like about this shaver is that I can not only charge but it will clean at the same time. The cleaning was very easy to use as I only need to press a button and then it would clean and charge. It smelled like I just shaved after it was cleaned. It made my razor clean and smelled like a new razor!What I really enjoyed was that there was a trimmer in the back to trim my side burns the way I wanted to. It trimmed very closely but very precise. The little hair that were dangling on the side of my head with hair is no longer there. This is a great feature because after shaving, it feels nice and all, but sometimes it still feels weird on the side. This allows me to get rid of the unwanted hair on my sides and makes me get a real clean shave everywhere on my face. Overall, this product exceeds my expectations because I never had a product that had so many features at the same time. Having a shaver and trimmer AND a clean and charge station makes this product worth it. Now, I don't have to spend 5-10 minutes every so often after using a product to clean because now I have a cleaning station that will do it for me with a press of a button. This will take less than 1 second to press and then you can go do whatever you want to do and next time you use the product it will be ready to go. I really recommend this product to anyone that wants a good shaver that can last a long time, but also to anyone who wants an easy to clean solution. Overall, really great product!

Holy Sweet Mother of Shavy Goodness!

Oh man. This thing is a beast. I feel like Thor wielding a mighty hammer in the morning. I keep a full beard and have always used straight razors to clean up my neckline and sideburns in between barber visits. But lathering up and getting the straight razor out takes time during my busy mornings before work and costs me precious minutes of snooze time on the alarm clock. I tried this for the first time the other day and cleaned up my neck line in less than 3 minutes! No mess, no lather and no razor burn. I love that I could also use it with some shaving cream if I wanted too. I'm upset with myself that I hadn't added this razor to my lineup years ago and cannot recommend it any more highly. Fantastic product!

Clean shave, quick cleaning

The razor starts with a clever packaging that displays both items as soon as you open it. Installation is a breeze - just plug in and go. As far as actual function, I used the razor thoroughly but only for a short duration. I was able to complete my shave quickly, and left no mess from shaving cream or water. After the shave, I tried out the cleaner station; the station works quickly to clean the shaver and even charges the shaver. My only concern is that the cleaning cartridge might get expensive. The solution comes in a decent sized container but if you're and everyday shaver you might run out quickly and depending on the replacement cost, that could be spendy.

I went in not expecting much

I really enjoyed this razor. If you're like me, I'm the type that has very tough, thick facial hair, and other razors didn't really do anything for me. They left me patchy when all I wanted was smooth skin. But the Series 5 from Braun, changed the way I shave. Not only did it cut my hair smooth the first time, but we'll into my 3rd, 5th, and on and on. I've never seen a razor take this kind of abuse! I'm am very lucky to have used this and look forward to continuing my relationship with this product and company. Do yourself a favor, if you have thick hair and don't use electric shavers because they don't do you right, give this a shot. The have a money back guarantee if you don't like it, but I think you will.
