There are some important features to consider before buying a shaver like cutting performance, the kind of shaving, and the charging system and auto cleaning. Ideally, a good shaver will run more or equal to revolutions per minute or RPM of 10,000. If you shave while in the bath or taking a shower, remember to ask if the shaver has dry/wet functionality support. Not all shavers come with auto cleaning and charging docks so you need to ask if your chosen shaver comes with one.

22724782_main_zoomHeat is known to be one of the main reasons why an electric shaver causes skin irritation. With the Braun CT5cc, heat is eliminated by the ceramic element set between the shaving head’s foils which remain cool during a shave to cool your skin.

Trimming a beard to size after a day or two without shaving will need a long hair trimmer, which is exactly what the CT5cc is equipped with. The foil blade handle has even been designed for catching hair which grows in all directions.

Its lithium ion battery translates to long battery life as well as quick charging. The CT5cc can run for a period of 45 minutes with only a single charging hour.

The base unit will not only clean the shaver but lubricate its foil. Do take note that because the base unit’s cleaning solution is alcohol, using shaving gel or foam will interfere with the way the cleaning solution performs and can damage the shaver.
