Product FAQs

What's the difference between foil shavers and rotary shavers?
Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements; 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 are the differences among the Series 5 models?
Beyond the shaving technologies and the Clean & Renew system featured in the Braun 550cc, the Braun Series 5 590cc model adds the most advanced display among Braun Series 5 electric shavers for men. Its four-stage LED display offers detailed updates on the status of the charging battery and the hygiene of the shaver itself. In addition, unlike the 550cc's black casing, the 590cc is packaged in an elegant Noble Metal color.

Why would I need a Clean & Renew System when I can clean my Braun Series 5 shaver under tap water?
It is more hygienic to do so.  And, at the touch of the button with your Clean & Renew system, your shaver is automatically cleaned, charged, and lubricated for added convenience.

I already have a Clean & Renew System from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the new Series 5 shaver?
No, the Braun Series 5 Clean & Renew System is the latest model from the Braun Clean & Renew System line and cannot be used with previous models.

How often do I need to exchange the Clean & Renew System refill cartridge?
It is recommended that you change your Clean & Renew refill cartridge at least once every two months or when the Clean & Renew system notifies you that the cleaning solution is ready to be changed. This will vary depending on how often the system is in use.

Do you have any recommendations for how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before taking a shower. After a few days without shaving (for example, the first shave after the weekend), you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Maintain even pressure to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. In order maintain optimal performance, we included a replacement part indicator in the display to ensure that you'll know when to exchange the cutter parts.

Does the battery have a memory effect, as can occur with cell phones or laptops?
No, the Braun Series 5 electric shavers for men use a Li-Ion battery that 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 the most powerful and longest-lasting batteries available for Braun electric shavers.

Style Name: Braun Series 5 550cc
I've used Braun shavers for about 20 years (my first was a System 1-2-3). I've had several different ones since, ending up with a first-generation Series 7 Pulsonic. I was never convinced the Pulsonic was as good as the Activator it replaced. Maybe a year and a half ago, I started getting bad skin irritation on my neck after I shaved. I've tried several different things with varying degrees of success. And I'm using Nivea For Men Q10 face lotion moisturizer which has made a big difference.

-A Philips-Norelco travel shaver I own showed promise, so I tried the Arcitec with lousy results and returned it to Philips.

-The Philips-Nivea for Men shaver works really, really well, but I didn't like shaving in the shower and it took too long to shave in the morning. Also, no way you can use it dry in the car if you're running late.

-Back to Braun. I picked up a MobileShave M60-B last Christmas at Wal-Mart for about $15. The new foil is huge improvement over the old Braun PocketShaver, but it leaves too many long hairs on my neck.

-A traveling family member bought me a Braun Series 1 model that's sold in Asia, the 110. Other than color, the 110 looks just like the 150 you can buy in the US, but is powered by two AA batteries and has the new-style "Smart" foil. This is an impressive shaver, but again leaves some long hair on my neck.

-Remembering how much I liked the old Activator, I decided to try the current Series 5 since it uses a similar foil and blade set up. I bought the old model 550. Bingo. Great shave like I remembered from my old Activator. It recharges quickly, and the lithium-ion batteries hold a good charge. I also like the way the 550 feels in my hand.

First I'd like to say that I was a bit skeptical of the efficiency and comfort of an electric razor. From a young age my father had told me that you can't get a good shave without a manual or straight-blade. I have had 2 electric razors prior to this purchase, both of which chewed up my face horribly. With a manual blade razor, the close shave left my face raw, and made my face break out. Even the new Fusion ProGlide from Gillette had the same effect. I thought that I could never get an electric razor with a close shave that didn't irritate my skin. I was wrong. I have the thickest beard possible, and have to shave in all directions due to swirling patterns on my jaw line. This razor was not only able to cut through my thick facial hair, but left my skin smooth and without irritation. I have had this razor 2 weeks, and it has taken the nightmare out of shaving. No more bumps. Nice close shave, and a cleaning system that doesn't make a mess of hair everywhere. Please buy one of these, you won't regret it. Thank you Braun for making such an awesome product, you have my business for life.

I had two (and still have one) of the older model Braun shavers. The base used for charging and cleaning failed to close or latch after several years of use. The Shaver is slightly better. The base is the HUGH improvement because you just drop it in the the base. No arm to close or break! Break is too harsh they just stopped latching (both of my original based stop latching) and it still worked so long as I held it closed. By the way I did and you can purchase a replacement base (which is why I still have one of the old style Braun units)from Amazon. The cleaning cartridges are exactly the same and Amazon sells them as well! All that being said I guess you can tell I LOVE my Braun shavers because I purchased a third one!!

Happy Day!

I have been a manual shaver my entire life (15+ years of shaving). I always thought electrics were not going to get close enough to give a good shave. My gf (now my wife) got me a cheaper electric shaver when I was younger as that is what her father uses. I tried it for the 3 weeks or so and hated it. It tugged and pulled on my hairs and generally irritated my skin. I switched back to manual and never looked back.

Now fast forward to present day and I have grown tired of the irritation that I get from manual shaving (razor burn, bumps, in-grown hairs). I will be the first to admit I am not the best at shaving. I still get the occasional nick here and there but I get the job done. Well I saw this shaver on sale at a local department store and started thinking that it might be time to try these again. This time I will put down a little more money for a better shaver. I did research here on amazon and other places and settled on the Series 5-550cc as it has some of the higher end features from the series 7 but at a $100 cheaper price tag.

Having only been using this new razor for a few days I can already say that it was a good choice. I am getting a close shave faster and with much less irritation along my neck. Time to brake down the review:

Design: 5 stars
Feels good in hand with a well put together shaver. Sturdy with easy access to the long hair trimmer on the back of the shaver. This is a plus as the long hair trimmer on the more expensive series 7 model was redesigned and not as user friendly. LEDs are more minimal on this model but they get the job down and tell you what is going on in terms of battery life.
