FAQs

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 SERIES 5 5070CC SHAVER

I was really pleased to be offered the chance to try out this shaver. I usually wet shave a couple of times a week and use a rotary electric shaver if i'm in a bit of a hurry. Once accepted on the campaign, I let my facial hair grow a little longer than normal in anticipation of the new razor arriving. I didn't have to wait too long as the Bzzkit turned up a couple of days later. On opening it up, I was pleased to see everything well packaged and a set of instructions that even I could get my head around! Having unpacked everything, I plugged in the razor to give it its first charge - I was pleasantly surprised how quickly it charged up - much quicker than my old one. Once charged, I had a go of it; due to the longer than normal growth, I used the long hair trimmer to try and make things easier. unfortunately this is where I hit a snag. The trimmer on the Braun is smaller than my old one and therefore trimming 'all over' takes a fair bit longer, the trimmer itself is also at a bit of an awkward angle! After i'd trimmed everything back I gave the main cutter a try, this seemed pretty effective, although did take quite a few repeated strokes to get a clean finish all over - this leading to slight tenderness once finished. I also noticed that the foils get quite hot, very quickly - I am not sure whether this adds to my face feeling a little tender post-shave? All in all,this is a nice shaver, which provides adequate results though does seem to miss the odd hair here and there. I have shaved with it twice so far and am looking forward to seeing whether the results and performance improves as my face gets more used to it. I have not yet tried the cleaning caddy, but will give it a test after my next shave.

Not Bad but couldn't beat a wet razor

I tried the Braun a few times now, I'm comparing it with my Gillette Fusion Glide Power. It does a decent enough job, but I get the typical shaving itch once I've used it, which I don't get from the Gillette. Also it doesn't cut a close as the Gillete and I tend to need to go up and down, while the Gillette usually pick up all the hairs in one go (presuming its a newish blade on it). Battery life is great once fully charged a got a handful of shaves from it before I thought it needed a top up. Feels like a good weight on the hand and comfortable to hold. Fairly no nonsense on/off with not too many confusing settings which I liked as well. Overall way better than the last electric shaver but just can't beat a good disposable razor on feel and closeness of shave! I'll stick to my Gillette.

Braun Series 5 = 5 Star Rating

I am plagued by fast growing stubble that is heavy in some areas but grows on very sensitive skin. A wet shave gives the best result but causes too much pain to be an everyday option. In the past, I found that it was only mains powered shavers that had enough torque to successfully cut my stubble. I was dubious that a rechargeable shaver would do the trick. However the Braun Series 5 has amazed me. It has plenty of power and shaving is fast. The stand has a cleaning function built in. It has a special cleaning solution that disinfects the shaver so it will never smell. I would recommend this to anyone and as it performs admirably everyday and is easy to maintain. It also looks and feels solid which makes me think it will last well.

Braun series 5 wet and dry shaver

My Braun series 5 shaver arrived really quickly (thank you bzz agent) On opening the box I was pleased with the quality of the shaver. I read through the instructions which I found relatively easy to follow. The shaver comes with a base stand for charging which initially takes around 45 minutes but the good thing about this shaver is that it has a cleaning cycle in the base. The first solution is included in the package and easily inserts in the base. On a press of a button it takes a couple of minutes to go through the cleaning cycle. Your shaver is then more hygienic so great if you have sensitive skin. The wash cycle also has a nice lemon scent which is refreshing and pleasant. It recommends cleaning regularly but I have been doing a couple of times a week. The replacement solution cost approx 3 for £18 and seem readily available. Cost would be similar to buying replacement blades. The shave itself shaves quite close although does not remove all the hair so every few days use a disposable razor to remove last few hairs. After shaving my skin feels nice and soft. The cost of the shaver is approx £100 which I feel is good value for money and I would be happy to recommend. The base of the shaver is approx 10 x 10 cm so need to bear this in mind for storage. Thanks again bzz agent I have already been talking about this shaver and bzz agent to my friends.

Braun 5070cc

I was surprised to be picked for such a high class looking product and was pleasantly surprised the Braun 5070 turned up on my doorstep so quick after accepting the invite to this campaign. I had high expectations with this product after going on to numerous web retailers to gauge the price range and general information on this product. The day had come, the Shaver and docking station had arrived and my stubble was becoming annoying and desperate to be removed, I unpacked the shaver and examined the product thoroughly. My initial thoughts was I had a impressive looking shaver and docking station, I read through the instructions which was pretty easy to follow, I installed the cleaning solution and placed the shaver into the docking station to be charged this is where the first problem arose. The charging cable can be very loose when putting into the docking station and had to be placed underneath the actual product which makes it unstable, after looking at the shaver and overall design I found this to be a design flaw if the plastic housing around the charger cable was thicker I think this would not become an issue if it was also the same for the shaver, if you was charging the shaver on its own you will have the same problem, this was the only issue I had with the overall product. The product only took roughly 45min to charge which was impressive and I was ready to get the first shave on the way. After shaving with the braun 5070 I was pleasantly surprised with results off the shave their were some are which was missed but not unexpected with a electric razor, the head off the braun pivots which was good and the overall experience off the shave was impressive, no irritation or any problems off that kind. Time for a clean, I placed the shaver into the docking station and waited with anticipation, the cleaning station reved up and started doing its job after roughly 5 mins cleaning it was done, the docking station was a little but noisey but nothing extreme, after the clean I examined the item and was pleased with the results, I tested the solution on my post shave skin to see if there was any reaction to the solution and there was no reaction. All in all I was pleased and impressed with this product, the price tag that comes this item is a bit pricey but you expect a quality item.

Braun Series 5, Modern and Stylish

The first thing that stood out when I opened the box for my Braun Series 5 shaver was how stylish it looked. I'd previously been using a different Braun shaver which looked seriously out dated compared to this one. It also felt much easier to hold and fitted the hand nicer. These range of shavers have a cleaning system built into the charging station, After putting the cleaning solution into the charging station. You just push the button on the shaver and the system goes into action, whirling and buzzing as it makes your shaver as clean as the first time it was used, The solution also contains a lemony smell so it feels fresh every time you have a shave. One thing to note is that the charging station is quite a large item due to have the cleaning system built in. In use the shaver was reasonably quite and it felt like it was doing a good job of keeping me clean cut. My wife can attest to this fact and was also impressed with how well it had done, The swiveling head of the shaver allowing it to reach the harder parts to shave. The head of the shaver can also be locked in a certain position if you prefer. Within the box also comes a nice pull string bag for taking the shaver away on holiday, This is a preferred way than the previous Braun shaver I had which contained a hard case but after a few trips split down the seam. There is no reason to think that this bag won't last a lot longer. The shaver indicates by a small symbol or water when it recommends you activate a cleaning cycle. And has a small battery symbol which flashes when it requires charging. Reading the manual it appears that the more advanced series 5 editions have a more complete battery display indicating exactly how much power is left. But this simple display is satisfactory for me. One thing I did notice when I first plugged the shaver station in was that there was a slight buzz coming from the mains plug, This only occurred when no shaver was placed into the docking station or no charging was active. This might affect people who have the shaver located in the bedroom like myself, who would be advised to unplug the plug when it's not in use to stop the buzz. Overall after a weeks use I am very impressed with the shaver, especially the close shave it gives me.

All in one.

This shaver is the Business! Even my wife appreciated the smoothness of my skin after using it when she felt my chin and kissed me. I've used it several time and it still smells clean and feels brand new to use. It takes just a few seconds to unclip the head, tap out the trimmings, reattach it then stick the shaver in the self-cleaning station and that's all you have to do to kept this shaver in prime condition! Apart from changing the cleaning fluid every few weeks, even after a weeks' use, (3 shaves) the fluid still looks clean and I expect to get a good few more weeks out of it. The actual shaving performance is second to none, It shaves my skin smooth for two days before I can actually feel the bristles coming through again, it does work well around the curves & contours on your chin & neck thanks to it's pivoting head.
