How do you use the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?

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.
