Braun Series 5 FAQs

What's the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
Rotary shavers use cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements giving you perfect control and precision. The foils protect skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver a supremely thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

What's the difference between the different Series 5 models?
The 5090cc model has high-quality metal surfaces and the most advanced display of all the Braun Series 5 shavers: a precise 5-level battery status indicator with low charge warning as well as a travel lock and hygiene indicator. The 5090cc also features the advanced Intelligent Clean&Charge Station from Braun: it cleans, charges, lubricates and selects a cleaning programme at the touch of a button - so your shaver feels new, every day. For more information about the Series 5 range, please consult the Series 5 Model overview.

Why do 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 automatically cleaned, charged and lubricated.

I already have a Cleaning Centre 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 Centres.

Can I buy a solo shaver and upgrade to a Clean&Charge Station later?
No, shaver and Clean&Charge Station are designed to connect during the cleaning procedure. Shavers sold without the Clean&Charge Station don’t have this connection technology.

How often do I need to replace 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 that feels new, every day. The Save & Subscribe option from Amazon allows you to sign up for regular home delivery and save 10% on the price of the Clean&Charge refill. You don't have to worry about ordering and will always have a Clean&Charge refill available when you need one.

Do you have any recommendations on how to shave using an electric foil shaver?
We recommend shaving before your shower. After a few days without shaving, for example over the weekend, we recommend trimming your stubble before you shave. Stretch your skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin at all times. In difficult to shave areas, like under the nose, you can use the MultiHeadLock switch to lock the shaver head and manually select one of five available shaver head angles to best suit your needs. Keep pressure even to achieve a thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance for trimming your sideburns, moustache or beard. Simply slide the trimmer upwards to use this comfortable and precise tool.

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

Does the battery suffer from a memory effect, like mobile phones or laptops?
No, Series 5 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.

I just love this razor I have always been a wet shave man but this is the first electric razor I have tried. I only used to shave once a week but now and because of this razor i shave every day. I have had this razor for about 3 months and only had to charge it twice. the shave is very comfortable and leaves no soreness at all its very easy to use and fits into the hand very easily the only draw back is that when it is supplied it does not come with a universal adaptor had to go out and buy one

Yes, I recommend this product !

Braun 5 series could save me a fortune!

I have been using wet razors for years now and must have spent a fortune in all that time. The problem I have had with electric razors is that they take so long to get a good clean shave, I just don't have the time in the mornings. Wet razors (I have always used the best a man can get) give a good close shave and quickly, the down side being that a months supply costs about £15. So over a year (with shaving foam) must be around £200. After using this Braun for the past week I have got my shaving routine down to a couple of minutes. Just as with a wet shave I get a good close shave and don't get any skin irratation. I would totally recommend this as it does a great job and saves money in the long run!
