The Braun Series 3 3010BT is a great electric shaver (consumer says).

Build Quality of Braun 3010BT

I have used many electric shavers even I also used Braun series 3 another models. My shaving experience with this shaver is good.

The weight of Braun 3010bt is light and it easily fits in my hand. The body color is a combination of blue and black.

The blue rubber grip makes it easier to wash and hold it and this blue grip will save your shaver from harm.

This shaver is not so expensive but gives you a high result.

There is no cleaning station with it but the Braun series 3 another model 3050cc which comes with a cleaning dock.

The 3 pressure sensitive blades will prevent your skin from skin problems.

These 3 blades give the close shave and it can easily follow every contour of your face even difficult areas.

It is not only a razor, it can do something more than the other shavers that’s price range is nearly like Braun 3010BT.

It is not the best shaver I have used but its performance will meet your satisfaction.

This shaver is worthy than its price.

It is typically made for the close shave and it is good for all kinds of hair but if you have long hair you will have to face a little bit problems.

When you will do shave or trim your beard, it will make more sound than Braun series 7or Braun Series 9.

Trimming and shaving sound of Braun series 3 3010 BT is quite loud.

The LED indicator will show you the percentage of charge when the charge is 15% the indicator will show you a reminder.

You cannot use it by plugging for security reasons.

It is not an expensive shaver but the structures of this shaver feel you like a costly shaver.

Trimmer Head

The trimmer head is very easy to set up on the shaver head and it is also extremely easy to change the trimmer head, just enough to shoot and clip the other head then press the power button.

It has various cutting ranges, The 1mm, and 2mm trimmer head is for short hair and 3mm, 5mm, 7mm are for long length hair.

When you will trim your low side of your beard you also put the shaver head in electric razor mode for finishing touch.

Battery Life

The battery of Braun 3010BT is Ni-MH rechargeable, it will provide you 45 min shaving time and it will take 1hour for 100% charged.

45min is enough for few days.

It also has a quick charge option with providing the shaver enough juice for one shave.

The LED indicator will give you a low battery signal when the charge is 15% or less.

The LED indicator will show you the duration of shaving time.

It will take 5 secs when you will turn on the shaver.

You have to wash the shaver fully at least once a week, after wash oil it with the light machine oil.

Cleaning Methods

You won’t get the cleaning base with Braun series 3 3010BT but in series 3 another model 3050cc comes with a cleaning dock.

By a cleaning station, it is very easy to clean since there is no cleaning base with Braun series 3010Bt so you have to clean it manually.

Manually clean is not difficult.

1st, hold the shaver in the sink

Then turn off the shaver, when you will wash the shaver, you must have to remove the battery before cleaning.

If water gets into the batteries, it could damage the shaver.

Now, apart from all the shaving blades and foils then you have to brush the razor’s cutters and spinning areas, wash them thoroughly and let them dry.

Before joining all the shaver parts make them completely dry.

If you do a dry shave you have to clean the razor at least once a week.


Aftershave shake hair out of the razor regularly- after apart the shaver head, tap the shaver body for coming out the loose hairs.

This is very simple and it will take only a few secs. you can do this after every dry shave if you don’t want to clean thoroughly.

Clean the shaver thoroughly at least once a week-   If you don’t want to clean the shaver daily, at least once a week thoroughly clean the cutting assembly that makes your shaver long lasting.

Replace all the replacement parts every 18-24 months- you have to replace the cutting blades and foils after the period which is recommended by the shaver’s manufacturer.

It will be good for you if you will buy the replacement part directly from your shaver manufacturer. Replacement is expensive but it is less expensive than buying a new one. After replacement, it will work like before.
