Braun Series 7 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 various Series 7 models?
Series 7 cc shavers have the most advanced display among Braun shavers: this LCD display gives very precise indications of your charge, battery and hygiene status. It now comes in an elegant, noble metal colour. The 790cc also features the most advanced cleaning centre from Braun: it hygienically cleans, charges, lubricates and dries your shaver automatically.
Why would I need a cleaning centre when I can clean my Series 7 shaver under water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean&Charge Station is ten times 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, lubricated and dried.
I already have a cleaning centre from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Syncro). Can I use it with the new Series 7 shaver?
No, the Series 7 cleaning centre is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean&Charge line and can‘t be used with previous models. The latest cleaning centre provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning centre.
How often do I need to replace the cleaning centre refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver using the cleaning centre twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a new-feeling shaver, 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. If you haven't shaved for a few days, for example over the weekend, it's a good idea to trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch your skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep pressure even to achieve a thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. We included a replacement part indicator in the display so you know when to exchange the cutter parts, to ensure your shaver always gives you 100% performance.
Does the battery suffer from a memory effect, like mobile phones or laptops?
No, Series 7 shavers use a Li-ion battery which does not suffer from a memory effect. You can recharge it whenever you want and it has a low self-discharge rate (vs. NiMh batteries). Li-Ion batteries are the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.
Do the Braun Series 7 shavers have a warranty? How long is it?
All Braun shavers come with a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
