Braun °CoolTec FAQs

How do you use the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is the perfect tool to shave facial hair. It is easily charged and has 45 minutes of cordless operation time. It is washable, and system models feature the new Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station.

How long do batteries last in the new Braun °CoolTec shaver?
It can be fully charged in an hour, giving you up to 45 minutes cordless shaving and 15 minutes of the cooling function.

How do you clean the shaver?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver features the Braun Automatic Clean&Charge Station, proven to clean more hygienically than tap water. The four-action alcohol-based cleaning system automatically cleans, charges and lubricates the shaver at the touch of a button for lasting cutting efficiency. All °CoolTec shavers are also waterproof up to 5m for full washability.

Can the new Braun °CoolTec shaver be used on the body?
The new Braun °CoolTec shaver is designed to groom the face and neck where facial hair grows. It is not specifically designed to be used on the body. Braun provides other grooming products which address below-the-neck needs.

Where is the °CoolTec manufactured?
Like all our premium shavers, the °CoolTec is fully designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany, ensuring Braun’s very best build quality and reliability. All of our shavers are designed and tested to last at least 7 years excluding shaver heads, giving you the peace of mind that you can continue to enjoy the unique °CoolTec experience for a very long time.

Can you use foams and gels with °CoolTec?
In order to experience the full °CoolTec effect, and benefit from the world’s only alcohol-based cleaning system that hygienically cleans 99.999% of germs, it is important that you do not use any shaving foams, gels or lotions which may act as a thermal insulator, and are not compatible with the alcohol based cleaning solution (and may potentially also damage the device).

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months.

Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phones or laptops?
No, the °CoolTec shavers use a Li-ion battery which 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 therefore the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.
