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, 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.

Quick and Super Smooth - Day 1 Review

I am not sure if its too early to write a review as I have only used this product just once. I stumbled upon this model 5140S while looking for deals on the 5040 model. What i like about the 5140S is that you can use real shaving gel/cream. I have super soft skin, so I cant shave everyday, but also at the age of 35, i have lot of great beard, so this is great.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Superb Stubble Shifter

My last electric shaver was a Braun Wet & Dry shaver from 4 years ago but this version of their Wet & Dry is definitely a cut above that. One of the disappointing parts of my previous shaver was the trimmer attachment but this has improved to be something that is useable. The feature that allows the head to move in a rocking motion as it moves over the face and chin is brilliant and I think makes for a closer shave as the shavehead stays at the right angle to the skin. You can also lock the position of the shavehead which comes in handy when edging up to your sideburns or beard edge. The fact that it is water resistant to 5 metres means I don't feel conscious about ruining it when cleaning the shaver or using it in the shower. Overall this is a great piece of kit and well worth a purchase if you want an alternative to a wet shave as it gives a really close shave which in my opinion is the best I have ever had from any of my previous electric shavers over the last 25 years. Cleaning the shave head is easy as a simple click of the side buttons and it pops off. The battery is powerful too and lasts for ages with a quick charge too. The only thing I miss is a simple padded travel pouch in the box but that wouldn't put me off buying it. If you are in the market for a new shaver then don't hesitate to buy Braun Series 5 5140s.

Braun 5140s, brilliant!

Having used electric shavers for several years now, I thought I knew what to expect, but was blown away with the new Braun 5140s. The smooth shave achieved from an electric shaver was like nothing before and felt as close as a wet shave, just without the hasssle. It is so versatile in the ways it can be used, like even in the shower, which saves time in the morning before work. Someone commented at work if I had a Turkish shave, but it was just my new Braun shaver. It is so easy to charge, use and clean and the battery lasts way longer than any of my previous shavers. Overall an outstanding product, highly recommended. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great Braun Budget Shaver

I have been an electric razor user for over a year now after 20+ years of wet shaving. After much research I originally opted for a braun 7 series, simply due to the fact that it came with a cleaning unit in the charger. I was recently introduced to the braun 5140 and though in name it appears to be a lesser model than the 7 series, it most definitely isn't. Firstly it looks good and feels solid in the hand. I first used it for 2 days growth and it handled it no problem (I have a decent growth after 24hrs), I then used it daily for a couple of weeks and only had to charge it once more. I also used it on 4 days growth recently and though it took a bit longer the end result was just as good. The trimmer tool is very useful and the facility to fix the head into a single position helps for the final sweep to make sure you haven't missed anywhere. I would definitely recommend this shaver if you don't need fancy add ons like charger stands and cleaners. I keep this one at work now and use it regularly.

Redefining a close shave

I've led my adult life believing that to get a shave that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth you need to lather up and use a wet shaver and if you wanted a quick shave you'd use a electric razor leaving you with a face that could light a match with. Then I used the Braun series 5 shaver. I now know a silky smooth shave is possible without setting up camp in the bathroom. The battery lasts a long time and I know exactly how much is left in it thanks to the battery display. I can also shave in the shower/bath so those wet shaver people can no longer hold that above our electric heads. All in all colour me impressed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
