FAQs

Braun Series 5 FAQs

What's the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
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.

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

How often do I need to exchange 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 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 over a weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin. In difficult to shave areas like under the nose you can also use the MultiHeadLock switch to lock the shaver head and manually set one of five available shaver head angles as it suits best to your needs. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. In order to use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upwards.

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

Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phones or laptops?
No, the Series 5 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 therefore the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.

Braun Series 5

It does exactly what you would expect of a top Braun shaver, very comfortable shave as the foil moves around as well as the head can pivot. The foil glides on your skin and super sharp cutter gets the hair easily, so your skin is left really smooth without the need to go back and forth too much. Can easily deal with longer hairs too. Nice that you don't have to worry if it gets wet and you can wash it to clean it also. Has LED display to give the charge level

Great shave without irritation

Having used electric shavers for about 20 years now I felt happy with my current "rotary" one which is about five years old. At the time I bought that one, I tried rotary and foil shavers and found the rotary one worked best with my beard.Having now tried out the Braun Series 5 5140s, I can say that foil shaver technology has definitely moved on as it gives me a great shave without any irritation.The shaver came with a charging cable, cleaning brush and protection cap. There's no travel pouch included and the power button is somewhat easy to knock so it is definitely something I'll need to buy before travelling with the shaver.The charging cable is the standard 2-pin shaving plug which needs an adapter to fit UK sockets. No shaver I've ever bought comes with one and I have a couple knocking round but if this is your first electric shaver then be sure to order one at the same time. It would be nice for manufacturers to include one in the box though.Everything on the shaver feels well made from the rubberised grip to the mechanism to pop-up the in-build sideburn trimmer and nothing feels like it'll fall apart.It's also great to know that the shaver is fully waterproof. They say you can use it in the shower but I'm not sure who would actually shave in the shower - I like to have a mirror to see what I'm doing and it would just steam up! Still, it's nice to know I won't break it with my wet hands and I can just give it a rinse if I need to.Braun state on their instruction manual that you need to replace the cassette (foil and cutter block) every 18 months to keep it working at it's best. Looking around, these are about £40 which doesn't seem bad to keep the shaver going another 18 months.All told, I really like the shaver and am sure it'll serve me well for a long time to come.

The wetter the better!!

Well I’ve never done that before! Was my first thought. An electric shave with shaving cream and water. Whilst the Braun 5140s claims to give a very close shave and even in the hard to reach places with wet or dry shaving I needed to try it out for my self. I resorted to the half’n half Technique of one wet and one dry side of my face. Excuse the photo I was getting ready for work so was pushed for time. The dry shave was pleasantly surprising especially after I mastered the lock for the rotating head and managed to get into the top of lip and nose and areas on the chin line. It started to feel a lot like other electric razors when I noticed I was missing some of the finer hairs on the neck. But after a few nifty reverse movements I had a pretty soft chin and a clean shave. Then into the wet shave. Would it work? Would it kill me? Answers are Yes and No and by the fact you are reading this it was in that order too. It seemed strange at first but there was hardly any snagging or pulling and shaving felt very comfortable. I managed to overcome my fears of electric and water easily after rinsing clean every few seconds and was amazed at the shaving experience. Not only was the shave close and smooth but somehow deeper as some 5 hrs on still smooth on the wet side and a little rough on the dry side. The ultimate test was the Daughter number 2 snuggle. Braving the fear of stubble she stepped up to the plate and assessed the shave with a cheek to cheek face rub. Judgement was a very smooth shave and she also preferred the wet side. So much so that daughters number 1&3 has to test it for themselves to. I even mater the accurate and lengthy grimmer which gave a very sharp finish to the burns and even managed a bit of ear hair too!The only criticism I could share is that it was a little on the cumbersome side. Whether it was the size of the handle the weight or my little hands I am not sure. But a small price to pay for a good shave. For me this is a great shaver and I am looking forward to testing again tomorrow morning.

Close Shave

Well after using a different brand of shaver for 10 years, I can safely & surprisingly say that this Braun shaver is the best I have used bar none.I used to get razor burns from my old shaver but this is excellent on my face & neck.Only one thing is it is a little noisy but it does a great job.

Excellent, efficient shaver

The Braun Series 5 allows for a clean, stubble wearing or trimming shave. It's easy to use, time efficient and has a great rotating head. It can be used in the shower which reduces rushing, and charges to full capacity within a short period of time. Great purchase!

Best I’ve tried

If you’re in need of a quick shave to tidy up then this works very well, a smooth shaver with no pulling on the hairs it simply cuts them, charges really fast as long as you have an adaptor for the 2 pin plug it comes with, and 50 mins of usable charge in the built in battery should see me through about a week, you get a blade cover and a brush to keep the foils clean, and can be washed under running water! In the more tricky areas it did leave a few hairs behind but still cut them very short, this is the only negative I’ve found, overall a very good product

I was able to get a very smooth shave without having to go over more than once.After use the cleaning was easy. All in all I am very happy with the shaver and would recommend to anyone.

Ticks all the boxes

I use an electric shaver everyday so I can give this a fair review. This Braun Series 5 shaved is one of the best shavers I have ever used. The 50 minutes of charge allows a full shave everyday for at least a week, providing a nice smooth finish. The shaver is quite a handful but worth it as it gets into all those tough to reach areas. I doubted the closeness when using it in the shower but was proved wrong again by the smooth finish. The protective cover and cleaner helps maintain the shaver and the blue LED lights show the status of the charge which is a good thing to know. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a reliable shaver which ticks all the boxes.

A close shave

Really impressed with this Braun Series 5 5140sElectric shaver. First of all, the shaver felt good to hold, fits well into your hand, able to have a comfortable solid grip. The shaver was a good weight, heavier that my other electric razor, but not too heavy. It felt a solid reliable shaver, inspiring confidence. The Braun Series 5 5140sElectric shaver, was very efficient, the flexible head that moves in 8 different directions giving a close comfortable shave. With it having an intelligent AutoSensing motor , it easily adapted to my whiskers density, giving me a much closer shave than my other electric razor. Not only did I get a really close shave, my skin feeling a lot smother, my wife could visibly see how much closer shave I had. While I have not used it in the shower, the Braun Series 5 5140sElectric shaver is specifically designed to be safe to used in the shower, wet or dry the shaver gives a refreshing shaving experience without the slightest compromise .

Yes, I recommend this product !

Very happy with results

Ok starting with the shaver itself and what you get. It comes neatly packaged with a cleaning brush, a standard charger, head guard and the shaver itself, everything you need to maintain and look after your shaver on the go.The shaver itself fits very comfortably in your hand thanks to its rubber grip coating the design is finished off with a smooth shiny sections that gives it a very classy expensive look but these sections do make it a bit of a fingerprint magnet.Now for the job it needs to do!It would be worth giving you a brief description of the Tuff job it has ahead of it with my skin type and hair type, I have very coarse curly hair with quite sensitive skin so too much up and down motions to cut missed hairs would cause me to have sore spotty skin which fortunately this isn't the case with the Braun series 5 shaver it cuts very quickly cleanly and with the motion heads it keeps a close cut in one stroke regardless of lumps bumps and Contours of your face including your chin and neck this minimises the need to go over sections you've already cut.Quality of cut!This is the important one we all want to spend less time shaving and more time doing other stuff and my new Braun shaver let's me do just that, I'm happy to report that everything about this shaver makes my life easier and faster, It it will charge in around a hour and iv not had to recharge it in 4 days, using it once for a big shave, 3 morning touch ups and a night out shave.Is it a close cut your asking?Yes in a nut shell, I had no problem getting a close shave on any area of my face including my problem areas being my jawline and neck.Bad points.To add an "s" to the word points is a bit unfair as I only have one complaint and is a minor one and that's that the trimer is not as fine cutting as I would like it to be, making it hard to do detail lines. This might just be the case with my hair type but given that the Braun performs so well from the get go this is just a very minor thing that brings the mark down a tad.I love this shaver and I think you would to.
