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.

-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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
