Features and Specifications Analysis

3 Shaving Elements:

The Braun 310s shaver comes with 3 pressure-sensitive shaving elements that work together for efficient performance.

2 SensoFoil outer shaving elements on the head shave the hairs from the skin level.

The SensoFoils have been engineered with hexagonal-shaped holes to capture more hairs in every stroke and protect the skin from the inner blades.

Another shaving element is the middle trimmer, which is situated in the middle of the outer foils.

The main purpose of the special element is to capture and cut longer and flat-lying hairs for flawless shaves.

Contour Adaption:

The gripe is all the Braun Series 3 shavers come with a fixed shaving head that does not move around.

But the shaving elements on the head are very flexible and can move independently to adapt to the facial contours.

The elements move up/down effortlessly according to facial curves.

Therefore, the shaving process becomes very comfortable on the skin and even great for sensitive skin.

100% Waterproof:

Braun Series 3 310s is waterproof even though all the Braun shavers are waterproof up to 5 meters.

Therefore you can rinse it without any worry about water causing problems.

Even you can submerge the device into the bathtub.

Wet and Dry Shave

Since a waterproof electric shaver, the Braun Series 3 310s allows you to shave under the shower.

Moreover, it’s a wet/dry shaver suitable for shaving with shaving cream, gel, foam, water, and more.

Therefore, you can have both fast dry shaves or refreshing wet shaves with the Braun 310s shaver.

You know wet shaving is pretty much comfortable and pleasurable for the skin that, ensures irritation-free gliding over the skin.

Power Source:

The Braun 310s is a cordless shaver that comes with 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries.

The batteries provide 30 minutes of cordless performance with a 1.5-hour charge.

On the other hand, there is a 5-minute quick charging option for getting an urgent shave if the battery is fully empty and you are on the go.

But in reality, I didn’t find it’s such powerful to provide an accomplished shave with a 5-minute charge.

I found it needs more than 10 minutes to get a proper charge to provide enough juice for a perfect shave.

Built Quality

Affordable shavers are thought to be cheaply built devices.

But Braun never disappointed me regarding built quality like the china shavers.

The Braun Series 3 310s is a basic-level shaver that doesn’t come with any fancy features, but the housing feels sturdy enough, although an affordable range shaver.

It comes in a blue and black colored appearance that has been made mostly with plastic.

Generally, maximum electric shavers are made of plastic on the market, but the shaver does feel hard enough in my grasp.

The downside is it doesn’t have any rubber grip cover for secured handling that the advanced Series 3 shavers come with.

Another downside of the shaver is there is no precision trimming facility to make final touches, which I think is the main problem with the shaver.

The Braun 310s comes with 2 AA rechargeable batteries that provide around 30 minutes of cordless performance, which sometimes feels very short for an electric shaver.

But it’s not a big issue if you are not too lazy to recharge the device after every 5-8 shaves.

Moreover, the device provides a 5-minute quick charging option, according to Braun’s proclamation.

But I had to charge more than 10 minutes for an accomplished shave.

Braun should have designed a more advanced battery life display for this budget shaver.

I am fond of the flexible shaving elements that move very softly for comfortable glides.

The alternatives at this budget from other brands do not have such robust and comfortable shaving elements, I think.

Everything goes in vain if the performance of the shaver is not satisfactory.

I tried the Braun Series 3 310s from all the possible angles to test its shaving performance.

I tried both wet/dry; longer/shorter hairs to get the perfect idea of shaving results.

In terms of shaving closeness, the shaver showed me a great outcome.

I got a pretty close and smooth shaving result from the Braun 310s shaver.

But it’s not a good choice for men with thick beards where the shaver will show its limitation.

The shaver excels all the alternatives from other brands I ever tried regarding shaving comfort.

The problem is I had to use a scissor for shaping my sideburns and mustaches since it didn’t have any precision trimming feature.

In this term, I prefer the Braun Series 3 ProSkin shaver to the Braun 310s shaver.

However, the shaver could give me a good shaving result, although I had a 2-day longer beard.

I think it will also be able to cut 3 days’ beard, but it will take a bit more passes for 3 days longer beards.

To clarify, I overserved that it can shave longer hairs par the more advanced Braun shavers like Series 3 ProSkin or Series 5 shavers.

In short, it gives me a good shaving experience along with some limitations.

Replacement Part

Braun’s shavers are always adorable for their durable shaving heads.

While the other brand’s shavers need a replacement head after every 12 months, Braun shavers need it after every 18 months.

Consequently, the Braun shaver saves the extended cost intelligently.

The Braun Series 3 310s shaver has been made with the Braun 32B shaving cassette available on Amazon or Braun’s showrooms.

I recommend replacing the shaving head timely while the current head gets dull to get optimum shaving results.


  • Pressure-sensitive shaving elements
  • Close results
  • Comfortable shave
  • Waterproof device
  • Wet/dry shaver
  • Sturdy built quality


  • No precision trimmer
  • Comparably pricy
  • No rubber grip
  • Comparably noisy


This shaver has some limitations, but I must consider its price range.

The shaver is a good solution for men who want to have regular close shaves with great skin comfort.

But it’s not ideal for the men who demand some extra features like a precision trimmer or pivoting head and more.

You have to spend some extra bucks to get those premium features and buy a premium shaver.

However, men who do not demand fancy features and intend to have regular close shaves on an affordable budget will be benefited from the Braun 310s shaver.

  1. I bought a Braun Series 3 Model 310s shaver and it will not take a charge or work plugged into outlet. In other words, this shaver is a BUMMER.

    • Hi James,
      Really sad to hear from you. I think you got a defective product. So, I recommend you to contact with Braun’s customer support to replace the shaver. I wish you will get a better experience with a flawless product.

    • Hi Seamus,
      The shaver comes with a non-removable rechargeable Lithium battery. So, there is no chance to use it with ordinary non-rechargeable batteries.

      -Thank you.
