The Braun 5040s Series 5 electric shaver succeeds where others fail, with an array of high-performing features to provide you with a clean, close and comfortable shave every time.
The FlexMotion Technology helps beat stubborn hair that is usually difficult to cut. Independently flexible cutting elements work on a fully movable head that maintains maximum skin contact, even in problem areas such as your jaw line and neck, for less pressure and less skin irritation.
MicroMotion has individual suspension of all cutting elements which respond to even the smallest contours for a superior close shave. MacroMotion is where the pivoting shaver head effortlessly navigates larger contours for maximum skin contact.
The UltraActiveLift effectively captures problematic hairs such as short, fine and curled hairs, particularly around the chin, jaw line and neck area, ensuring you achieve close results every time you shave.
The Braun Series 5 integrates a PowerDrive feature for high speed cutting even on dense hair. With 20 per cent more motor power than previous generations, the motor supplies sufficient torque on every terrain. The powerful rechargeable Li-Ion battery is fully charged in 1 hour, for up to 45 minutes of cordless shaving. A 5 minute quick charge gives you sufficient charge for one cordless shave. The SmartPlug has an automatic worldwide voltage adjustment (100-240 V), for optimum convenience, at home or away. As a wet and dry shaver, the Series 5 5040s is for cordless use only. An LED display indicates battery status.
