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.

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.

Wonderful product

I love the Braun series 5 5197! It makes my face smoother then any other. It handles even my thick patches with no problem at all while being easy and comfortable on the sensitive parts of my face. It by far is the best I've ever used.

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.

Better shave, better you!

The Braun Series 5 electric foil shaver, give a sleek and impressive appearance out the box. Once it is quickly charged, the shaver is ready for action. The Braun Series 5 electric shaver gives a close finnish with smooth, prickle free skin to the customer. Although shaving the neck can be hard to completely get all places, the expendable detailer gets me, a man with a stubbled beard a clean and precise shave. This will come in handy when i want a hair free neck and cheeks or simply a clean face. The Braun Series 5 electric foil shaver's ability to shave with water, creme, or lotion give a huge advantage to any guy with not much time on his hands, for an easy and simple shave.

Amazing Razor

I have only ever used electric razors, this by far is the best I have ever used. It cuts close, easy to use and easy to set up. I am extremely impressed by it. It leaves your face feel smooth and fresh. Plus no being afraid of water destroying it. Get done shaving rinse under the facuet and let try or put in the clean and charge kit. Both ways are convenient and simple to do. The clean and charge station is something I never knew I needed till I had it. Just drop it in and let it do the work for you. Over all it is a impressive product and would highly recommend it.
