What’s the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin for perfect control and precision, but rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
Do you have any recommendations 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 a right angle (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 5 available shaver-head angles as it best suits to your needs. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
To trim sideburns, mustache, or beard, the Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. To use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upward.
How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. Use Braun replacement head 52B.
Can I buy a solo shaver and upgrade with a Clean & Charge Station later?
No, the shaver and Clean & Charge Station are designed to interlink during the cleaning procedure. Shavers sold without the Clean & Charge Station do not have the technology to connect correctly.
Does the battery have a memory effect as seen in 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.
