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.

Why would 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 cleaned, charged and lubricated automatically.

I already have a Cleaning Center 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 Centers.

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.

above average

Used this for the first time at the weekend when I hadn't shaved for quite a few days, therefore my beard was quite long and thick. The razor moved over my hairs quite smoothly, however it did take quite a lot of goes to completely remove the hair. The razor did not leave a completely smooth finish but in my experience no electric razor ever has. It's handy for a quick shave where you haven't much time but I probably wouldn't recommend this specific model.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Average shave

I have been using an electric shaver for about 18 months (another braun but higher series 7 model) and found it to be convenient for when I don't have time to have a wet shave. The braun series 5 does deliver an ok shave but it is definitely not as close as to what I've become accustomed to. It also seems to pull rather than glide across my face. However I do have quite thick facial hair so this maybe because of that. It doesn't give me shaving rash though which is good. It takes a little longer to shave than my current shaver. You also cant adjust the closeness which is a shame.Charge time is very quick and I like the case which it comes with. A feature which I wasn't overly pleased with was that it doesn't fit my current clean and charge station - it would be great if you could use the same dock for more than one model.Overall it delivers a decent shave but there are better alternatives out there.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Braun Series 5 5197cc

I was in need of a new shaver as my old one had broke I tend to be in a hurry in the morning so i prefer a cordless one that i can use quickly and this one fitted the bill. It came with a soft travel bag, Clean & Charge Station, Cleaning Cartridge (1x), proctection cap, cleaning brush, charging cord. The cleaning cartridge is excellent and easy to use eveytime you use the shaver its like new again so no more clogged foils. I can use it in the shower as well with shaving foam or gels which gives you a refreshing and moisturising shaving experience. My wife is enjoying my new freshly shaved look as with my old shaver i didnt shave everyday as it wasnt pleasent and left me with a rash maybe because i never cleaned it properly where this one is like new everytime i use it so no more rash. In short a top shaver at a good price thats does what it says on the box.

Brillantly close shave

I've been using multi-blade wet razors for the last few years, with my old rotary electric razor relegated to the back of the cupboard. The Braun Series 5 5197cc will change that, as the shave is almost as close as the wet shave, and won't have the ongoing high cost of replacing blades. The best part is that I get no irritation whatsoever using the Braun. The movable head works brilliantly, and you no longer need to be a contortionist to get around the shape of your face without missing bits.The cleaning / charging station is a good idea for those in a hurry - Just press the button and off it goes - but is quite large, and once the cleaning cartridge is opened you can't really move it about too much. Definitely not something to take on your travels. Thankfully, it does still come with a carry pouch and cleaning brush for those times you are out and about.Overall, an excellent electric shaver, wit a good close shave.Bye-bye bladed wet shaving

Great stuff

I've bought electric razors in the past and have never found them any good but this one is amazing. I am definitely going to be recommending this to all my family and friends. It's easy to use, easy to clean and is comfortable to use. It also gives a great shave.

Close shave but no cigar

It's been years since I used an electric shaver as I always found that they missed lots of places and left my skin very irritable. I liked the moving head on this and found it a very comfortable shave but it still took a while to get into every nook and cranny to get at missed hairs. The second shave I tried it wet and got a closer, more even shave. I still had irritated skin after using this but it quickly faded whereas in the past I'd find my skin was very itchy for hours after so this was a big improvement. I haven't tried the cleaning station yet but it looks good and looks like it will help keep the shaver clean and stop it from stinking like other shavers do! All in all I'm quite impressed with this shaver and this will replace my current method of using hair trimmers for quick shaves but not fully replace manual blades for when a very close shave is wanted.

The Best Shave Ever!!

This has got to be the BEST shaver I have tried, and I've tried a few. I've tried it both wet and dry and was really impressed with the way it left my skin feeling soft, smooth and not showing an signs of irritation. There was also no sign of the 5 o'clock shadow I have been left with by other shavers.I love the fact that after every shave I can put it in the cleaner and the next time I use it it's like using a brand new shaver. The cleaner unit is fairly noisy but unless your standing in the room while it goes through its cycle your not really going to hear it.It takes around an hour to charge and you get roughly the same amount of usage time, so ample if you are going away for a few days, also comes with a handy travel bag to keep things together in your case.

I was very impressed by the overall appearance of the shave very easy to setup and looks very stylish. Really comfortable to use and gave a really close shave with no irritation. Excellent feature with wet and dry use I can now shave whilst in the shower which saves time. The only downside is it quite loud but not enough to put me off. I have had other Braun shavers before but this series 5 is by far the best.

Great shaver so far, if a little noisy

In terms of the finished result, this shaver gives a good shave. I've had no razor burn, something that I am prone to. The shaver itself sits well in my hand and the moving shaver head seems to be good at following the contour of my face.So far, my only gripe is the noise - it is a noisy thing!More comments after I've used it for longer
