Why It Shaves So Well
Equipped with three blade foil elements each of them with their own suspension mechanism giving you a very smooth operation. Suitable for dry use only. The shaving head configuration is typical of Braun, with two outer foils and octagonal perforations and one middle trimmer.
The outer two foils catch and cut those short hairs close to the skin while the ActiLift Trimmer, is capable of capturing the flat and longer hairs that grow in different directions on the face.
Flexi Shaving Head & Multi Headlock
With independent movements, all the three cutting elements maintain constant contact with your skin. Braun calls this – FlexMotion Tec with MicroMotion. The independent movement of the cutting elements allows you to follow the contours of your face without any hassle and the whole shaving head pivots at 40 degrees back and forth. This makes it easier for you to shave areas like the neck region.
You can lock the head at 5 different angles for more precise cutting. All of this can be done by simply pushing the head into a different position using its head lock switch, located in front of the electric shaver.
In two of the positions it is also possible to retract the middle trimmer and the two foils, so you get only one foil protruding, which is again very handy when shaving really tricky areas like the one under your nose.
Automatic Cleaning Station
CC in the end of any series of the Braun electric shavers implies that they come with their own Cleaning and Charging Station.
The alcohol-based cleaning mechanism not only cleans but also lubricates, but automatically selects the cleaning program required. A single cartridge would last a month (depending on use). You can also extend a month-long period of the cartridge by cleaning the shaver every other day. Cleaning this particular shaver without the station is also possible.
Though regular deep cleaning sessions with always help you in increasing the longevity of your shaver.
Lithium Ion Battery
Powered with a 3.6-volt lithium ion battery that takes an hour to charge fully with an optional 5-minute quick charge. It gives you 45 minutes of run-time in full charge. Being a dry shaver, you can directly plug in the charger and use the shaver. This is great for those who travel a lot because you don’t have to bring the cleaning station along every time.
Precision Trimmer. The precision trimmer that comes with the Braun Series 5 5090cc is perfect when it comes to shapeing those side burns. With a round head and a pop-up mechanism, it is easy and convenient to use.
It is waterproof so you can use the 5090cc in the shower or with shaving gel. Other features of this gadget are a 5-level battery indicator, a travel lock, and a hygiene status.
Compared to the Series 3 and Braun Series 7 the Series 5 electric shavers from Braun are a lot closer to Series 7 when it comes to overall quality and performance. Made entirely out of plastic the Series 5 5090cc comes with both glossy and matte finishes. You can read a full review of the differences here Braun Series 5 vs 7.
