Recommended ambient temperature for charging is 5 °C to 35 °C. The battery may not charge properly or at all under extreme low or high temperatures. Recommended
ambient temperature for shaving is 15 °C to 35 °C. Do not expose the shaver to temperatures higher than 50 °C for extended periods of time.

  • Using the special cord set (9), connect the shaver or the charging stand (10) to an electrical outlet with the motor switched off.
  • When charging for the first time or when the shaver is not used for a few months, leave the shaver to charge continuously for 4 hours.
  • Once the shaver is completely charged, discharge the shaver through normal use. Then recharge to full capacity. Subsequent charges will take about 1 hour.
  • 5-minute quick charge is sufficient for a shave.
  • A full charge provides up to 45 minutes of cordless shaving time depending on your beard growth. However, the maximum battery capacity will only be reached after
    several charging/discharging cycles.

The green charging light shows the charge status of the batteries. The green charging light blinks when the shaver is being charged or switched on.
When the battery is fully charged, all green charging lights shine permanently, provided the shaver is connected to an electrical outlet.

Tips for a perfect dry shave
For best results, Braun recommends you follow 3 simple steps:

  1. Always shave before washing your face.
  2. At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin.
  3. Stretch your skin and shave against the direction of your beard growth.


Regular cleaning ensures better shaving performance.
Cleaning under running water:

  • Switch the shaver on (cordless). Rinse the shaver head and the precision mode switch under hot running water until all residues have been removed. You may use liquid soap without abrasive substances. Rinse off all foam and let the shaver run for a few more seconds.
  • Next, switch off the shaver, remove the Foil & Cutter cassette (1) and let it dry.
  • If you regularly clean the shaver under water, then once a week apply a drop of light machine oil (not included) onto the long hair trimmer (2) and Foil & Cutter cassette (1).

The shaver should be cleaned after each foam usage.
Cleaning with a brush:

  • Switch off the shaver. Remove the Foil & Cutter cassette and tap it out on a flat surface.
  • Using a brush, clean the inner area of the head. However, do not clean the shaver Foil & Cutter cassette with a brush as this may damage it.

Keeping your shaver in top shape

Replacement light for shaving parts / Reset
To maintain 100% shaving performance, replace the Foil & Cutter cassette (1), when the replacement light for shaving parts (7) comes on after about 18 months or when worn.
The replacement light will remind you during the next 7 shaves to replace the Foil & Cutter cassette. Then the shaver will automatically reset the display.
After you have replaced the Foil & Cutter cassette (1), press the on/off switch (4) for at least 5 seconds to reset the counter.
While doing so, the replacement light blinks and goes off when the reset is complete.
The manual reset can be done at any time.

shaver to full capacity.
