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.

What's the difference between the different Series 5 models?
The 5090cc model comes with high quality metal surfaces and has the most advanced display among Braun Series 5 shavers: a very precise 5 level battery status indicator with low charge warning as well as a travel lock and hygiene indicator. On top, the 5090cc features the advanced Intelligent Clean&Charge Station from Braun: it cleans, charges, lubricates and selects cleaning program at the touch of a button - so your shaver feels like new every day. For more information about the rest of the Series 5 range, please consult the Series 5 Model overview.

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.

It worked ok until it didn't.

I was really excited to try my first braun shaver. The design was pretty good other then the clean and charge station which didn't seem to sit down all the way on the base. The 5090cc has a classy looking design, but the lock switch didnt really stop the head piece from moving. The shaver did a pretty good job of getting most hair but had problems around the jaw lines. The cherry on top was when the clean and charge station button stopped responding, after only 2 month's of owning it!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Wow, can't believe I got this for free!

What a great campaign to get in on. My previous electric razor was older, and I am thrilled to be give this one for participating. This is the best razor that I have ever owned. It works great for trimming and shaving. So easy to clean, store, and charge. The self cleaning and lubricating is amazing. But with all the gimmicks aside, the power on this thing is unbelievable. So much stronger that my previous electric razor, and that one was top of the line. This set a new standard. This would be a great investment for someone who wants a powerful, high quality, razor.

Looks great!

I have never had an electric razor before. At receiving this for my trial, I was shocked at how nice it was. I was traveling right after I received it so I put it in the traveling case that it comes in and took it with me. I was impressed at its smooth shave and how easy it was to use. I was also impressed at how quickly it was cleaned on its stand. This would be a bit of investment, but I think it's worth it.

Braun Electric Razor cleans up great but doesn't give close enough shave

I received a free Braun electric razor with a one touch cleaner/charger/lubricator. The clean and charge feature worked great and it was nice using a fresh clean razor every morning. The razor just did not give me as close a shave as the Remington's I have used for years, the current of which has the same blade layout as the Braun. I have used the Braun for 3 weeks with no improvement on the closeness. I have been using the Braun and then finishing with the Remington so my face is smooth. I was hoping I would get used to the Braun since I like the cleaning station and the ergonomics of the razor, but at this point those features are not worth giving up a close shave.

Braun Series 5 - Best Electric Razor to date

I typically don't use an electric razor as I have very thick facial hair. Normally, most electric razors either burn up within the first month, or don't work at all. I normally use a 5-blade razor in which I must replace the heads every 2-3 weeks to continue to get as close a shave as possible. I can actually use this razor as the only razor for a quick shave. There are a few spots that could use touch up on my neck/under chin where it doesn't get the hair completely smooth, but if I use the razor daily, there have been no issues. This has made the morning wake-up routine easier on days that I shave to get ready for work with less hassle and less mess. I would definitely recommend this razor for anyone that is looking for or that uses electric shavers.

Great shave in a sleek package

I have been using disposable razors since I was in my 20s. I have only tried an electric razor once before in my life, but did not continue to use it as I have sensitive skin, and I found that the electric razor would pull hair, leave my skin red, and overall not deliver the same result and comfort as a disposable razor.It seems that technology has changed! This new Braun electric razor provides a close, clean, comfortable shave, without any of the negative issues that I had previously had.Upon unboxing, I was extremely impressed with the look and feel of the unit. It is sleek and attractive. My wife even commented on the looks.The base cleaner is a nice feature, and was easy to set up. The pivoting head allows for me to adjust the razor to best suit the contours of my face, and the trimmer was good for cleaning up the sideburns.I'm so happy this arrived before I left on my current vacation, so that I could bring it with me.If you have been unhappy with electric razors in the past, I would strongly encourage you to try the new Braun models.

Best shave in years

This is the best shave I have had in years. Normally I use some cheap kind and they work ok, but I was so impressed with this shaver and have told everyone I know... not only about the shaver but also bzzagent. I've never had a better shave or better shaver in my life!

Review of BrAun Series 5090cc by rjschaack16

The Braun Series 5090cc simply is one of the best shaver/trimmers I have used in recent years. I have always been a Norelco man but trying this shaver may have just swayed me to the Braun side of the fence. It can be used either cordless or corded so if you forget to charge it you can still use it. Great for a person like me that forgets to charge his razor occasionally. The skin friendly multilock head makes for getting the right shaving angle a breeze. It is fully waterproof for those who like to shave in the shower or like the closeness of a wet shave with a electric shaver. The cleaning station allows you to have a clean shaver all the time which is a nice option. I would recommend this shaver to anyone looking to get a clean and close shave effortlessly.

I like it.

In my years of using shavers this one so far is the best. It is even able to get those stubborn areas.The 5090cc has some good balanced weight to it. It's comfortable in the hand and doesn't feel cheap.The 5090cc arrived with no charge so during the initial charge my power cord started making a loud hummm. I simply called the 1-800-Braun11 and they are shipping me a new one.When I called for the warranty replacement of the Power cord I talked with an actual person who was able to help me right away. I will give them full marks for having good customer service in spite of the faulty charger.The one feature that I would like to see is a beard trimmer instead of the sideburn trimmer. it would save me another grooming device on my bathroom sink.Over all, I like it. My wife likes the way my face feels after a shave (Bonus Points) so I'll recommend it to anyone.
