Braun Series 7 FAQs
What's the difference between foil and rotary shavers?I pay more than that...
Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
Why would I need a cleaning center when I can clean my Series 7 shaver under water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a SmartCare Center is 10 times more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. On top it's more convenient, i.e. at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, charged, lubricated and dried automatically.
I already have a cleaning center from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the new Series 7 shaver?
No, the Series 7 cleaning center is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean&Charge line and can't be used with previous models. The latest cleaning center provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning center.
How often do I need to exchange the cleaning center refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the cleaning center twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a shaver like new, every day. The save & subscribe option from Amazon allows you to subscribe for a regular home delivery and at the same time save 10% on the price of the Clean&Charge refill. You don't have to think about it and always have a Clean&Charge refill available when you need it.
Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most 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 to ensure you know when to exchange the cutter parts, in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.
Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phone or laptops?
No, the Series 7 shavers use a Li-ion battery which has no 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.
