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 cant 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, dont 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.

Its the closest shave ever.
I would recommend this shaver to anyone. I can't tell the difference between it and my Gillette fusion shaver. I really didn't think I would ever say that.
Yes, I recommend this product !

Braun Series 5 5030 Solo
I never really cared for electric razors but after a few weeks of trying the Series 5 5030, I am definitely hooked. Such a close and smooth shave, so much better than my disposable razors ive used before. By far easy to keep clean and I no longer worry or fear the dreaded razor burn.

Best Electric Shave yet
The power is amazing, I am able to get my shave done in about half the amount of time as the last electric razor I tried. I have always had trouble with several areas on my face that were hard to get a close shave on. This razor while not perfect vastly improved the closeness of my shave in these tough areas. The battery life is awesome I am able to charge it and keep it in my car for the entire work week maybe longer it has yet to show any signs of losing a charge. Very easy to maintain and clean. The ability to lock the head and let it float with the contours of your face really send this razor over the top. By far the best electric razor I have used.
