What’s in the Box?

  • The Braun 5140s shaver itself
  • A foil protective cap
  • Cleaning brush
  • Charging cord

There is no fancy attachment with the package is it comes with a very reasonable budget.


Autosensing Motor

The Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver has been built with a powerful Autosensing motor drive.

The motor can read your beard density and automatically adjust the speed with facial hair type and density.

This technology makes the shaver pressure sensitive and perfect for cutting the hair smoothly in every stroke.

The strong and adjustable motor ensures an efficient and smooth shave every time.

Skin Sensitive Technology

Braun used their super-sharp stainless steel blades into the foil cutters and added flexible foil caps to cut the hair sharply and make the effort comfortably.

In the Braun 5140s shaver’s foil cap, Braun used special holes to capture the hairs easily and protect the skin from the blades to make the result close and comfortable.

Thus, the shaver performs well but does not harm the skin.

While you have sensitive skin, this shaver is very suitable for you then.

For a very close shave in a comfortable manner, this shaving gig must achieve your heart.


8-D Flexible Head

The Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver comes with a very flexible shaving head which moves in 8 directions while performing.

This flexible head is able to read the skin contact and capture hairs from any angle and curve of your face.

For the multi-flex head, the cutters can reach the problem areas to capture every single hair for a very smooth result.

This technology ensures to never leave hairs for close shaving and make the operation very comfortable.

Wet/Dry Shaver

Braun developed this shaver with wet and dry shaving technology.

So, you can have both wet and dry shave with the Braun 5140s electric shaver.

Within a very short time, you can have a quick dry shave and have a refreshing wet shave with shaving cream, foam, gel, or water.


100% Waterproof

The Braun Series 5 5140s is a 100% washable shaving machine.

So, you can shave under the shower or use it in a wet atmosphere without any risk.

Since 100% waterproof, the shaver allows you to clean it with direct running water to make a thorough cleaning after every shave.

You do not need to panic if the shaver accidentally falls into tub or water as there is no risk of water causing problems.


The Braun 5140s shaver is powered by a Lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

The powerful battery provides 50 minutes of continuous performance with one hour full charge.

According to battery power, it can compete with any other premium shavers like Braun Series 9, Philips Norelco 9000, or Panasonic Arc5.

The Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver comes with a universal charging cord (100v-240v).

The cord allows you to charge the shaver from anywhere in the world and from any electric outlet.


5 Minute Quick Charge

While the battery is fully drained and you need an urgent shave, the shaver is able to provide you enough juice for a full shave in 5 minute charge.

This is a great facility as you may forget to recharge the device every time after full power consumption.


Built Quality

The shaving device has a very attractive interface with black and blue color combination.

Braun made the shaving machine 100% user-friendly to make it easier to handle.

The shaver fits very comfortably in the grasp and feels very suitable for easy operation.

The handle is covered with soft grip rubber to make the shaver secure and comfortable to operate.

Braun designed the Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver with a very strong body to make the shaver durable and anti-fragile.

Braun promises that this shaver will perform in shame manner until minimum of 7 years. That’s I think a very long lasting for an electrical device!

Popup Trimmer

The manufacturer equipped the Braun 5140s shaver with a very useful popup trimmer in the back of the device.

The popup trimmer is perfect for precision trimming after shaving.

So, you can make outlines, trim the mustache, shape the sideburns and more with the device.

It will help you to make the final touches to ensure a perfect and flawless shave.



The German brand Braun warrants for 2 years with the Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver.

If you find any manufacturing defect or your device face any performance error, Braun will repair or replace the device without any charge within the warranty period.

Replacement Parts

Every electric shaver needs shaving head replacement after a long period of use.

There is no specific period to replace the foil head as it depends on the shaving habits.

If you use the shaver very frequently, you need to replace the head early and you need to replace it after long time if you use the shaver occasionally.

The Braun Series 5 Shaver Head Replacement Cassettes are available on Amazon.

So, you can easily replace the foils with a little budget. Head replacement makes the shaver feels like a new one.

The performance will also be similar to a very new shaver.

So, I recommend replacing the shaving head in time to get the actual shaving performance.


Final Word

Braun Series 5 5140s electric shaver is a perfect shaving machine for those men who want a premium shaving experience at an affordable price.

Since very affordable, Braun does not provide much attachments with the package. But you will find everything to have a perfect close and comfortable shave in this package.

The built quality, battery and shaving performance is comparable with the premium shavers which has all the facilities like Philips Norelco 9000, Panasonic Arc5 or Braun Series 9.

I must recommend the Braun 5140s electric shaver for you if you have little budget and do not need the fancy attachments like cleaning dock, travel pouch etc.
