I will be examining the shaver in much greater detail in the next section. Right after I am finished showing Braun Series 5 you the contents of the box. Owner manuals provide valuable information on how to use your appliance.
Be careful when going “Manual” on this machine. I had to take the shaving head apart and clean the hair strands inside. This takes out most of the strands and you’re left with a few stingy ones. This is one area the guys hardly compromise with regardless of any series.
The cleaning cartridge also contains lubricants for the shaving system, which may leave residual marks on the outer foil frame and the cleaning chamber of the C&C. These marks can be removed easily by wiping gently with a damp cloth. As I have mentioned above, these attachments are close to useless in my experience and dedicated trimmers or groomers work much better.
The 5140s is usually less expensive than other Series 5 variations, particularly the cc models that come with a cleaning station. None of the new Series 5 models are Philips Norelco Shaver available with an automatic cleaning station. It is a very gentle and smooth shaver provided that you’re not moving the shaving head two fast across the skin.
For you the simplicity and convenience the cleaning station brings will be more than worth the small price of buying replacement cleaning cassettes. Unfortunately, the Series 5 charger cord is the shortest of any major shaver brands. As you may have guessed by the name, travel lock is most commonly used when you are squashing your electric shaver into an already overflowing luggage. You may charge without the cumbersome charging station by connecting the cord straight to the shaver.
You’ll find a rubberized grip that covers the sides of this product. I expected the boys to compensate with a textured, long grip to complement wet shaving. With the price hovering between $140 – $160, this is one product that packs the punch when it comes to performance and maintenance. I got the “Full” Braun treatment with the package when it arrived. If the shaver is regularly cleaned with water, apply a drop of light machine oil on top of the foil once a week for lubrication.
