FAQs

Braun °CoolTec FAQs

How do you use the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is the perfect tool for shaving facial hair. It is easily charged through the mains supply and has 45 minutes of cordless operation time. Washable, it features the new Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station.

How long do batteries last in the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
It can be fully charged in an hour, giving you up to 45 minutes cordless shaving and 15 minutes of the cooling function.

How do you clean the shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec CT5cc and CT2cc shavers feature the Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station, proven to clean more hygienically than tap water. The triple-action alcohol-based cleaning system automatically cleans, charges and lubricates the shaver at the touch of a button for lasting cutting efficiency. All °CoolTec shavers are also waterproof up to 5 metres for full washability.

Can the new Braun °CoolTec shaver be used on the body?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is designed for grooming facial and neck hair. It is not specifically designed to be used on the body. Braun provides other grooming products which address below-the-neck needs.

Where is the °CoolTec manufactured?
Like all our premium shavers, the °CoolTec is fully designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany, ensuring Braun’s very best build quality and reliability. All our shavers are designed and tested to last at least 7 years, allowing you to relax in the knowledge that you can continue to enjoy the unique °CoolTec experience for a very long time.

Can you use foams and gels with °CoolTec?
To experience the full °CoolTec effect and benefit from Braun’s alcohol-based cleaning system, which hygienically cleans 99.99% of germs, it is important not to use any shaving foams, gels or lotions as these may act as a thermal insulator and are not compatible with the alcohol-based cleaning solution (and could also damage the device).

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months.

Does the battery suffer from the memory effect, like mobile phones or laptops?
No, °CoolTec shavers use a Li-ion battery which does not suffer from the memory effect. You can recharge it whenever you want and it has a low self-discharge rate (vs. NiMh batteries). As a result, Li-Ion batteries are the most powerful and long-lasting batteries for Braun shavers.

First impressions

The Braun CoolTec arrived on Saturday night which was good timing as I was going out to a wedding that evening. When unpacking the CoolTec the charging cable comes as a Type C outlet only and there was no adapter for the more common Type G outlets found in the UK. This was disappointing however I did have a Type C installed in my bathroom. The 2nd issue was that the cord for the charging cable is very short so I had to use a box on top of my table for the charging unit to reach. To be fair those were the only 2 downsides to the CoolTec, the charging station is modern looking and wouldn't be out of place in a high-tech home. The shave is very good, the best and closeted shave I have had with an eclectic shaver. Normally I would come out all red around the neck from shaving however the cuts were so smooth that my skin was completely clear and clean shaven.

To cool for school

Upon unpacking the Cooltec I have to say I was more than impressed by the look and feel of the unit, undaunted by the plethora of bits and pieces I ploughed on and charged ready for my first tryout. Charging, whilst via a two pin adapter was easy and quick and I was ready to go. I have used a great deal of electric shavers over the years,all of which have left me with a red and painful neck and I was nervous about the results this time. First use was a breeze, the Cooltec, after a bit of persistence,left my face smooth and hairfree. My neck has never felt so good after a shave with an electric razor, smooth and redness free! The cooling strip is a dream, I remember similar claims from other razors but with the Cooltec I was not let down, the cool strip is a lifesaver. I have yet to try cleaning my Cooltec and I have only used it once but I have been throughly impressed to date, tho I am yet to be converted only time will tell

Brillian close shave!

In recent times I have stayed away from close shaving as I have sensitive skin so most days it was uncomfortable, I saw this Braun shaver with CoolTec technology and decided to give it a try. It is very impressive as I will explain further... Contents: Unboxing this shaver was fairly easy from the well designed packaging, inside comes the docking station for charging/cleaning, power cable for the docking staion, a brush to clean, a cleaning solution that fits in the charger dock and of course the shaver... which is a very nice looking unit. The set up: This was fairly easy, I had to consult the manual to check a few things but basically the dock plugs into a shaver connection although I used a converter to charge on a normal uk power socket, then the shaver slots in the dock with two metal connection points which need to touch the two inside the dock then hey presto it starts charging. The money shot - Shaving: I was quite nervous on the first shave as I have had stubble for around 3 years because of the sensitivity I get from a close shave so I proceeded with caution... this was soon gone as the shave is actually so nice, the cooling place in the middle of the two shaving sections is amazing, it provides a nice coolness on the skin whilst shaving, there is an option to turn the cool feature off but I wont be doing that... the shave is so close my skin now feels nice and smooth and it doesn't irritate me or feel sensitive which is so good as that is what I thought might happen. There is also a trimmer on the side of the shaver that you just push up and trim, this is a great feature for extra styling. After the shave I washed my face which felt fine and then the danger area... aftershave! I was again surprised that there was only a slight sting from applying this no where near the normal sensation I would expect after a shave. Summary: If you have sensitive skin don't worry, the coolness that this shaver provides during shaving is so nice on the skin and helps provide a really close and nice shave, the docking and charging station also cleans the shaver too which is a nice feature, you really do get the complete shaving package with this... if you like a nice clean shave from an electric shaver then you won't go wrong with this one.

one for the sensitive guy

To start us off what came in the box ? Braun cooltec CT2cc shaver with clean and charge station including power adapter small cleaning brush and alcohol solution for the clean and charge station all well packaged in a well designed box. Look and feel. the Braun cooltec CT2cc looks and feels like a great bit of technology A little about myself now . So I stopped having a full clean shave just over 2 year now as I couldn't bare the soreness that It would cause for up to 48 hours after the shave as I have really sensitive skin and the rash it would cause was unsightly So lets put it to the test. WOW I really am astonished at the results . I was expecting my first shave in over 2 year to be a really bad experience but how wrong could I be. When moving the shaver across your skin you can feel the cooltec technology really working its magic and keeping skin irritation at bay . The actual shave itself is nice and close and really smooth and the main thing for me is that I have not one bit of irritation or rash any where on my skin. Another great feature is once you are done shaving simply place your shaver into the clean and charge station hit the button and there you are you shaver is all cleaned and lubricated automatically at the touch of a button ready for your next shave. The verdict. I can honestly say that i would recommend the Braun cooltec CT2cc to any one and if you have sensitive skin this really is the only shaver you will ever need so is a easy 5 out of 5 for its care to sensitive skin and a easy 5 out of 5 for the closeness of the shave.

The best shaver I've owned just needs a case!

From the moment you pick up the Braun CT2CC electric shaver you can feel it is a quality product as it feels solid and heavy. The active cooling button helps cool the shaver rapidly and is said to help out with people with sensitive skin by cooling the plate in between the two cutting heads. I haven’t experienced any redness on my neck after using this shaver which is good and it feels nice with the active cooling feature. The shaver cuts nice and close albeit not as good as a wet shave but you know that already. It copes with long and short hairs better than my previous shaver which tended to rip some longer hairs out rather than cut them. The shaver can trim longer hair with the included cap. It has the usual side burn trimmer too. There is also the usual cleaning brush but I am not sure you will need this as the idea behind the cleaning system is that it lubricates the shaver as well. I find that you can rinse it under some water every other day then you can make the alcoholic cleaning pack last a bit longer. It’s meant to last a month BTW. You should leave it in for a few hours so the cleaning solution drains back in the tank then leave it to air dry. The battery takes around 45 minutes to charge and will last a week. When the cooling system low power lights starts to blink you get another couple of shaves out of the shaver with the cooling off. Based on previous Braun razors I expect it to last around 2-3 years with the same cutters and foils on it. I find it’s sometimes better to get a new razor rather than buy new foil and blade due to the costs of these parts and the wear on the battery. I have seen the foil and cutter block for £20 which isn’t bad at all and maybe I will replace it after the recommended 18 months. The cleaning system is a doddle for anyone being lazy in the morning, simply stick the shaver upside down in the unit, press a button and leave it to do its thing. The only downside is that the cleaning process is a little noisy but only lasts a few minutes and you’ll probably have it in your bathroom if you have room as the base is quite big to fit on the top of a cupboard. You can’t move the cleaning unit once its opened as it will leak. The shaver does take a while to dry but it's not a real issue if you shave at the same time every day. The cleaning unit which also serves as a charging station is as I said fairly bulky so not for travelling with. However it does come with a slim line charging caddy which can easily be packed into your toiletry bag for travelling. I am surprised that this does not come with a travel case though as my previous Braun shavers have even cheap ones! Overall I’m very impressed with this razor and whilst it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the more expensive self clean models, who needs to see what the black box is doing anyway. I would really like a case for it to stop it getting damaged in my toiletry bag when travelling. I guess it can be washed off should anything burst in the bag.

Great looking shaver

Well, I've not used an electric shaver for quite some years as I have very sensitive skin and shaving in the past with an electric shaver tore my skin to shreds. The Braun CoolTec shaver looks really sleek and well build so was very keen to try it. During the first shave, I felt the active cooling technology cool my skin whilst shaving which minimized any irritation. I was pleasantly surprised that my skin didn't feel sore, like usual. The shave was quite close however, maybe not as close as a wet shave but very acceptable. I usually shave most days with a razor however, I will be continuing to use this shaver as my skin feels great. The cleaning system is great, that charges, hygienically cleans and lubricates at the touch of a button. Great for those that are busy! The LED screen is great to monitor the battery status. The Braun CoolTec can also be used as a wet shaver although I've not tried that way yet. This is great as you can use it in the shower. Having 45 minutes of cordless shaving is great as having a cord can get in the way. Best thing so far about the Braun CoolTec is the cooling technology that cools my skin to avoid skin irritation and shaving rash! Brilliant!

Was this the electric shaver I'd always wished for?

When the chance to get my hands on this shaver came up I jumped at it. I have fancied trying a decent electric shaver but always been put off by the price and the fact when I have tried electric shavers before I was less than impressed. Out of the box it looked great. Really sleek and well designed, I popped it into the charger which gave a reassuring beep. I first used it on a week old stubble, I didn't expect it to work but thought I'd give it a go. As I suspected there was no way it was going to work. I don't think any shaver would have. After getting out my beard trimmer I gave it another go and was pleasantly surprised, it performed much better than I expected and so much better than any electric shaver I'd tried in the past. To my surprise the cooling function could be felt pretty much instantly and was very pleasing. I have tried the shaver quite a lot now and the only minus point I could find with the cooling action was on a really hot day it caused condensation which added a bit of drag to the shaver. After shaving I was very impressed with the job it had done, my face felt pretty smooth and the shaver had done rather well. The only problem I have is some of the hairs on my neck grow very flat and it did miss these. I have always used a wet shaver because I like the results I get. From now on I will be using both, wet shaving now and again then using the electric shaver in between. All in all a very good product indeed.

Braun cooltec shaver ct2

I stopped using electric shavers some years ago as they use to leave my neck red raw with a very unsightly rash,I also thought that the shave was never close enough and I always looked like I had shaved the day before.On seeing the braun cooltec I realised this was right up my street and was more than willing to give it a try. My initial beard growth on the first day of use was about 2 days old(a good amount a of stubble)as I I wanted to give it a proper test,although I had to go over the same areas a few times I eventually got down to a clean shave look.At first I didn't think much of the cooltec but was amazed by how cool it felt on the skin,it really did work.On completion of my first use I had a good clean shave and most importantly,no rash or redness on my neck.The second time I used it was the day after on a minimum growth stubble and it had no problem getting a close shave at the first time of trying.
