So for an easy clean, you can hold the trimmer under running water.

Being the trimmer waterproof, don’t be worried about water causes problems.

The warranty does not cover if your trimmer is damaged from – accident, misuse, dirt, water, or any kind of unreasonable use.


Battery Life of Braun BT5050

Braun Bt5050 comes with 2 batteries and these batteries are rechargeable.

But the charging time is so long – 8 hours. After 8 hours of charge, BT 5050 will provide you 50 mins running time.

8 hours is a really very long time and 50 min operating time is not the perfect ratio.

There is an LED battery indicator in the trimmer body. This indicator will provide you battery status.

When you charge the trimmer the indicator will flash green.

Before the battery discharged the indicator will flash red.

Built Quality of Braun BT5050

The Braun BT5050 beard trimming machine is made in Germany.

It is made with hard plastic. But it can be an issue for the detachable comb.

You have to be more careful when you remove the comb because if the trimmer or combs suddenly slip from your hand it can be damaged or break down.

But in this price range, you should not expect premium materials from a costly brand like Braun.

The stainless steel blades stay sharp to last its lifetime.

BT 5050 is very lightweight and it will easily fit on your hand.

The body is made with rubber grip and plastic, so don’t worry about slipping it when you will use it wet or under the shower.

The manufacturer engineered it water resistant. You can use it wet or dry.

Even you can use shaving gel or foam during the trim.

The trimmer itself is ergonomically designed. There is a power button on the front side of the shaver and it is very responsive and does not take much time to turn on after pressing the button.

The charging point is located at the bottom of the trimmer.

You will get 2 attachment combs with this package.

And these combs will offer you 25 hair length settings.

#The precision comb

There is a round dial in the comb.  It is engineered from (1mm-10mm) with 0.5mm steps. So you can trim at your desired hair length. But the trimmer comb is made with plastic and it is poor quality.  But the performance will meet your satisfaction. Just during use, you have to be more careful.

#Long beard comb

This attachment also made of plastic. And it is engineered from (10mm-20mm) with 2mm steps. So who wants long length beard this comb is for you.

Removing and adjoining the combs is very easy.

You will find all the directions clearly with pictures in the user’s manual.

Performance of Braun BT5050

The trimmer itself made with high-quality plastic. I am happy with its shaving performance.

The trimmer head is 1.5’’ wide and it is able to trim my mustache, sideburn, jaw-line, and under the neck.

But in the thick area, it requires multiple passes for an even trim. When I trim my beard, I did not feel any kind of hair pulling.

Performance wise, the Braun BT5050 is great and met my satisfaction. But when I use the attachment comb it feels flimsy.

And the precision comb is not so good for precise trimming. The comb’s quality could be better.

Cleaning and Maintenance

You can clean the Braun BT5050 in dry or wetDry clean is so easy. You will get a little cleaning brush with this package. You have to use this for a dry cleaning.

1st remove the attachment comb from the trimmer head. Removing is so easy, there are 2 switches in both sides of the trimmer head, just press them softly and the comb will be removed.

Then brush the comb thoroughly in the inner side and outer side. You can hold it in the running tap for wet clean.

1st turn off the shaver and unblock the trimmer head by pulling it. Now rinse it in hot water not boiling water of course. It is very easy to clean under running water. For a hygienic clean you can apply a bit of liquid soap.

Now, it’s time to dry the shaver with an open head.

If the shaver is cleaned and dried enough you have to lubricate the trimmer blades with the blade oil which comes with this package. 1st apply a little bit of oil on the top of the blades then you have to unblock the trimmer head to lubricate the inner parts of the trimmer.

In the trimmer head, there are 4 points to lubricateThe lubrication makes your machine faster and a better cut. Don’t apply too much. Now close the trimmer head.


  • I don’t have any strong objection about performance
  • Multiple attachments for 25 hair length settings
  • Wet and dry use
  • You can use it cordless or corded
  • Easy clean. You can clean it the dry version or wet version
  • 2 years warranty



  • The attachment combs could be better quality
  • Charging time is so long
  • Sometimes inappropriate



I tried to give you almost all the information about the Braun BT5050.

And the Braun offer you 60 days money back guarantee from the actual buying date.

And in this price range, you cannot find this type of machine with this type of performance.

If you want to buy a new trimmer I think you should at least try it.
