New design automatic Clean&Charge station

New Series 5 features the world's only three-action alcohol-based Clean&Charge Station, it cleans, charges and lubricates at the touch of a button - so your shaver feels like new every day.

  1. It lubricates with each cleaning for longer lasting cutting efficiency.
  2. Cleans significantly more hygienically than tap water. Noticeably more comfortable on skin.
  3. Charges for maximum battery power at all times.

Braun is the inventor of the Cleaning Center with over 10 years of experience in that area. Braun is the only brand using alcohol-based cleaning fluid which eliminates 99.999% of all germs and bacteria in every cleaning process.

Tests have shown that using the Clean&Charge Station is 10 times more hygienic than simply rinsing the shaver under tap water. Furthermore, more than 150 consumers confirmed a noticeably closer shave and more than 110 consumers a better skin comfort after regular usage of the Clean&Charge Station*.

And because regular cleaning provides optimal hygiene you can experience a fresh shave every day. If you run the cleaning procedure twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a shaver like new, every day. *Consumer studies conducted in Germany 2009

Review for Braun 5070cc Series 5 Shaver

Submitted by NickB on 6 March 2015
4 out of 5

I purchased this shaver with a little trepidation given some of the other reviews on this site (re. the charging plug) but I decided to stick with Braun as I've been happy in the past with previous 5 series models.

Regarding the charging lead I tested this straight away and found that it slipped straight out. Bad.

However, I persisted, and found that it needs a firm push and click in order to secure it.

Don't get me wrong, the soft but secure hold of my previous model felt more 'sophisticated', but the push and click definitely secures the lead. No issues there. Happy days.

Poor Product - No Quality Control!

Please be aware that the star rating given refers to the product only and not the excellent service provided by Olympic Shavers.

Having previously owned and used the older Braun 590cc shaver over the past 6 years, i decided to buy a new one as it was well past its best. So, having tried to conduct a bit of research prior to purchase, i plumped for this supposedly upgraded Braun 5070cc model.

Immediately, on unpacking the shaver and accessories, i felt a sense of doom. The shaver itself felt light weight and to be constructed of cheaper materials. The 'travel' case is a thin soft material that is not sufficiently large, or robust enough to carry both the shaver and the product's charge cord. Not very practical!

Even worse, and mentioned by other reviewers, the charging cord connector DOES NOT FIT the shaver properly and falls out from the product when trying to charge it.

For me, this damned both the product itself and Braun for releasing into the market, a product that has had patently inadequate attention and quality control applied to it. Nothing can redeem any product for me, having found such negligent attention from it's manufacturer.

For those interested, my old charger from my 590cc fits snugly and charges the shaver properly!

So. how does it perform (if you can get it charged!)?

Unfortunately, badly is the answer.

Ignore ALL the claims made by Braun in relation to how the 5070cc performs.

I have a light to medium stubble growth at the very worst. I can't use this shaver for my main shave every day as it gives an utterly inadequate shave. It does not properly shave any problem areas, such as those awkward hairs on the neck, contrary to the sales blurb that Braun give.

If you're a gent with any more than a medium stubble growth, then this will not do anything other than tidy up the easy to capture facial hairs that most other modern shavers capture. You will not be able to use this for a satisfactory daily shave.

Therefore, i can't agree with the other reviewer who says that this is a great product. It is cheaply constructed; it's components have not been quality controlled adequately and, it certainly does not provide the shaving experience that Braun claims it does.

In contrast, the service provided by Olympic Shavers was outstanding, as it always is. Five star service. Quick delivery and the item was well packed; arriving in pristine condition. Their website is nicely laid out and very user friendly and so is a joy to use.

If only Braun themselves could match a similar quality experience to their products!

Review of the Braun 5070cc Series 5 Shaver

Submitted by Gartmore on 10 September 2014

First class service from this retailer unfortunately though the shaver has a fairly serious design fault as other reviewers elsewhere have pointed out I discovered too late.

The power cable is such a loose fit that it not only falls out of the shaver, it falls out of the charging station.

It seems almost inconceivable that Braun, whose helpline denies there is an issue, should market such a thing.

Some carefully applied sticky tape to fatten up the plug is the only solution it seems.
