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.

Exceeded my expectation

This is probably too early to accurately review but first impressions are very important. I just purchased this series 5 model 5147s on 2/4/2019. and used it for the first time on the 16th. I have severe reaction every time I wet shave and my face usually looks like it's on fire afterward, so after reading up on rosacea and recommended shaving practice I chose the series 5 to test the waters so to speak. Followed my usual routine of shower, shave using my regular Maca root cream, brush applied and was amazed at the result. I guess the only mistake I may have made is not locking the head in position, I didn't see anything intuitive in the picture instruction(at least to me) that seemed to indicate that it needed to be locked for shaving. As stated the result was far above my anticipation. No redness, barely any tingle/burning which I feel every time I shave and the experience was almost as if nothing was happening. I had to touch my face to confirm the stubble was removed. In every sensitive area that usually flushes beet red and burns there is nothing to indicate I shaved. The closeness is on par or better than my twin blade(yes Dinosaur). My regret is not being smart enough to investigate the benefits of electric foil shaving sooner, but I believe the wet/dry capability is the game changer here. I had a Norelco 50 years ago for about 3 months and I'm sure they have improved greatly but I never went back to electric shaving until yesterday. Highly recommend.

This product meets exactly my expectations

Many years ago I tried to shave with a electric shaver , but I was very disappointed with the result. Because I was getting tired every morning to shave in the traditional way, and seeking for information for electric shavers online, I read the consumer reviews on your website. So I was convinced to buy a Braun 5147s. I can say with great pleasure and satisfaction that the device does exactly what it promises. I can shave every morning very fast and satisfactorily. I am very happy with my new Braun Shaver .

Awesome razor!!

So I tried out this razor. I tried it on multiple stages of hair growth on my face. I tried it on one day two days and three days in between shaving. It did a wonderful job of saving closely on my face and I even tried it on my head seeing as I’m bald. It did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend the razor for someone who is trying to find a good quality razor that can do a good job of making you clean-shaven. I tried using it as a dry razor and as a wet razor it seemed as if using it as a wet razor did better but it still did a pretty good job using it as a dry razor. I would recommend buying this razor it really did an awesome job!!

Ready to switch to an electric???

I waited until the very end so that I could give the Series 5 Braun shaver the best 'REAL' review that I could provide. I have been using it off and on over the course of the trial period. I switched back and forth between it and my traditional blade. I have used electric razors before and hated the end result. I would end up with razor rash and stubbly face. Not so with this one, particularly with the use of it in the shower. While I have to say it is far and above all of the other electric razors that I have used, I prefer my blade. I can't give it a bad rating for sure, because I do like it, but can't give it 5 stars because I didn't switch. My daughter on the other hand.....needless to say, I don't get to use it very often after she used it just once in the shower. SHE LOVES IT!!!!! She actually works her shower schedule around mine and comes to steal it from my bathroom so that she can shave her legs with it. She actually had another brand of waterproof electric and she said that mine is sooooo much better than hers. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone that uses an electric and I would certainly recommend it to anyone that doesn't truly LOVE their traditional razor.

Just Average

I was excited to try this but once I started using it, I was instantly disapointed. It is not sharp and it does not give a nice clean cut. I for sure thought this would be my next favorite item!!

No, I do not recommend this product.

We hate to hear you didn't receive the clean and precise Braun shave you were expecting with our Series 5 Razor and we'd like to learn more. It may be helpful to know that it can take up to three weeks for your skin to adjust to a new shaver. It's best to hold the shaver at a 90 degree angle and stretch the skin to shave against hair growth, changing direction as needed. We suggest using a gentle touch and letting the shaver do the work. Since this wasn't the experience we'd hope for, please give us a call at (800) 272-8611.

Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver

The Braun Series 5 Shaver is an excellent shaving tool. It gives a much closer shave than other electric shavers, and has an outstanding battery life, meaning that I rarely need to charge it. The adjustable edge makes it easy to reach and shave all of the curves of the face, leaving no areas untouched. In addition, it is entirely waterproof which makes it easy to clean and rinse if necessary. However, it is important to be careful not to press too hard when shaving. Small cuts may result when the shaver is pushed into the skin, although they are not deep and do heal quickly. I would definitely recommend the Braun Shaver to friends and colleagues!

Braun Series 5 5147s Review

I have used foils shavers in the past with mixed results. That being said, I am very pleased with the Braun Series 5 5147. I am that guy when it comes to facial hair - I have incredibly sensitive skin, very coarse facial hair, prone to ingrown hairs, yet not enough of it to just "let it grow" without looking like a teenager (I'm 35). As long as I keep up on shaving (every 1-3 days), the Braun did a fantastic job - virtually no hair pulling and only the most minute skin irritation from repeated passes on hard to shave places (my neck). I charged the razor once, the day I got it, and have still not plugged it back in (about 1 months’ worth of shaving). There are a few cons (hence the 4 starts). The longer I let my facial hair grow, the less effective the shaver was - it then required multiple passes with increased pressure which lead to tugging and worse skin irritation - add to that moist/wet skin from the shower and the shave became frustrating.Overall, I am very pleased with the Braun 5 and will continue to use it on a regular basis - but I will do it pre-shower and if I wait 3 or more days to shave, I will switch back to the trusty safety razor for that shave.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Braun Series 5 5147s Rocks!!!

I cannot emphasize how impressed I am with this Braun Series 5 5147s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver! I’ve had a few electric shavers over the years and have never been very satisfied with them. Other electric shavers I’ve tried in the past left my face feeling like I’d shaved 12 hours earlier, not to mention leaving my face feeling a bit irritated from using it for so long, pushing harder against my face, in attempt to get a good close, smooth shave. This is absolutely the first electric shaver that has ever left my face feeling smooth, and right on par with using good razor blades. This Braun Series 5 does an excellent job, leaving my face feeling smooth, and without the irritation. It takes less time, and doesn’t require me to push the shaver hard against my face. It also has a head that pivots to allow it to follow the contour of my face, or you can lock it in place for locations where you don’t want it to pivot, such as shaving below your nose. Aside from the fact that this shaver works awesome, there are two other added bonuses that have made it even more impressive. The first is that it’s cordless and is rechargeable. Here’s the thing. I know that the box states 50 minutes of charge, but I charged it up 4 weeks ago, I’ve used it 3-4 times per week since then, and it’s still running on the same charge! I’ve only charged it that one time since I took it out of the box. The second added bonus is that this shaver can be used wet or dry. You can use it to shave dry while you’re driving to work or watching tv, or you can take it in the shower with you, or use shaving foam with it. It’s easy to rinse out and clean very quickly. That is a nice feature! In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting great things from this shaver, based on my past experiences with other electric shavers, but I was wrong. I love this thing. This is a great product that I would recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing one.
