Cleaning your shaver properly is so important to get new performance repeatedly.

You can clean your shaver two ways, manually and automatically.

The clean and charge station is basically a dock that cleans, charges, and lubricates your electric shaver without any effort.

It has the world’s only 4-action, alcohol-based Clean & Charge Station. So your shaver feels like new every day.

First, to insert the cartridge, you have to press a button on the back of the station, and it will open, and you put on the cartridge.

You can place your shaver in the cleaning station and press the power button then, the station will do the job for you and prepare it for your next use.

If you travel and don’t take your cleaning station with you, you will clean your shaver under running water or clean it with a cleaning brush called manual cleaning.

You charge your shaver by cleaning and charging the dock.

If you need an urgent charge, you can charge your shaver by charging the cord within only 5 minutes.

The Braun series 5 5090cc also provides a very durable hard travel case to carry your shaver when you travel somewhere.

Unfortunately, you can only carry your shaver, so you must pack the charging cord separately when traveling.

Corded + Cordless:

The Braun 5190cc has a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, which provides 50 minutes of cordless use.

So you will get relaxed when you shave in the shower.

If the shaver is low on power, you can have a direct corded shave plugging into direct electricity.

But I recommend cordless use while using wet beards.

Because it can cause electrical shock.

What is the difference between the Braun series 5 5190cc and 5090cc???

The older version of the new 5190cc is 5090cc which is not available on the market now. Braun slightly updated the 5090 and released the 5190cc, which is now rolling out the market. If you look forward to the updates in the new version, you’ll find cosmetic changes in the look. The Braun 5090cc shaver had a red and black color scheme, and the new 5190cc has a blue and black color scheme. Another update is an inner mechanism that is called auto-sense technology. Braun added an autosensing motor in the updated model that automatically reads beard density and adjusts the shaving power accordingly. I didn’t find any further difference in both models.

Does the Braun 5190cc work on 240 volts?

Yes, it supports universal voltage.

Can you charge the device without the charging dock?

Yes, you can charge the shaver directly with the charging cord.


  1. Thanks for your nice review. It is very informative. Is there any significant difference between Braun series 5 5090cc and 5190cc two models? In series 5 which one will be more useful for me?

    • Hi Bob,
      The Braun series 5 5090cc and the 5190cc stand for the same shaver. So, you can undoubtedly buy the shaver if you find any of these model numbers.

  2. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
    you finding the time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.

    But so what, it was still worth it!

  3. How can I tell the difference between the 5090cc and 5190cc? You mentioned a major update to the 5190cc? Do they both take the same foil head?

    • Hi Dennis,
      Both models have similar shaving heads and Braun altered the 5090cc into 5190cc. They declared the 5090cc is now officially 5190cc and you will get all the facilities of Braun 5090cc into the Braun 5190cc. The built quality and color have been upgraded in 5190cc. So, you will not get the 5090cc on the market now.
