Features and Specifications Analysis

Durable Workmanship

Braun is a very trustworthy electric shaver brand worldwide. Braun engineered the series 7 shavers to last at least 7 years of continuous performance.

This must be a very long period for an electric product.

Braun promises to serve 7 years with the shaver, but you can use it for more than 7 years if you handle the device carefully and make proper maintenance.

4 Shaving Elements

All series 7 electric shavers come with 4 shaving elements.

3 foil cutting elements are for cutting the hairs, and 1 skin guard to protect the skin from sharp blades and guiding the hairs to capture perfectly.

All 4 shaving elements catch and cut every single hair in very few strokes for smooth and fast shaving.

Sonic Technology

Braun used a powerful motor drive with intelligent sonic technology in this Series 7 shaver to provide ultimate shaving speed in every stroke.

The motor creates 10,000 micro-vibrations which deliver 30,000 cross-cutting actions per minute to capture and cut more hairs in every stroke.

For Sonic technology, the shaver can deliver more precise shaving every time in very short passes.

Power Customization Facility

5 shaving modes of Braun 7865cc shaver

There are 2 buttons with the sign “+” and “-“which allow you to customize the shaving speed.

The shaver has 5 customizable shaving modes from the lowest to the highest speed.

These power settings are very useful for choosing someone’s desired shaving power.

In another way, these start from the sensitive mode and end in turbo mode.

When you have sensitive skin, you must adjust the power to the sensitive mode, and if you need a fast shave with no skin problem, you can use the turbo mode.

The power customization modes make the shaver smarter and unique.

Flexible Head

The flexible head of the Braun 7865cc shaver

The Braun Series 7 7865cc electric shaver comes with a very flexible pivoting head and floating shaving elements that pivot in 8 directions to adapt to skin contact.

The pivoting head and shaving elements can hug your skin and reach anywhere on the face to capture every single hair from the hard-to-reach areas.

The shaving elements can softly move up and down to read the skin contact and follow every face angle.

The Floating shaving elements ensure maximum shaving comfort and relieve any skin irritation.

Along with the pivoting head, the floating shaving elements deliver a smooth and comfortable experience in every use.

100% Waterproof

The shaver Braun 7865cc is 100% waterproof up to 5 meters.

So, you can submerge it under the water to manually clean the debris.

The cleaning process becomes easy and fast without washing the dock.

Sometimes you may drop the device unconsciously, or it can slip off your hand and fall into the water, making you anxious about water causing a problem.

But the shaver is 100% water resistant, and you never need to worry about water causing problems.

Since 100% water resistant, you can use the shaver under the shower to have a shower shave while bathing.

Wet/Dry Shaving

While purchasing an electric shaver, you must see the feature that it is a wet/dry shaving machine or not.

This must be a very important feature if someone likes a wet shave with shaving cream, foam, gel, soap or water.

As mentioned before, the old models of the Braun series 7 are not wet/dry shavers. But the upgraded Braun series 7 7865cc is a wet/dry shaver.

So, you can have a fast dry shave and a refreshing wet shave with your favourite beard softener.

The wet & dry feature is very helpful for having maximum comfortable and smooth shaving.

This shaver must be a great shaving companion for both kinds of shaving experiences.

Cleaning and Charging Dock


The Braun 7865cc, do you know what the cc means? Yes, it means “clean and charge”.

If a shaver comes with an automatic cleaning and charging station, the shaver contains the cc attribute.

The Braun Series 7 electric shaver comes with the world’s only 4-action alcohol-based cleaning and charging station, which automatically cleans, charges, lubricates and dries the shaver for the next use with a single press of one button.

In this process, the shaver becomes germ-free and prepared for the next performance.

So you do not need to take extra care of cleaning or charging the device.

Just put the device into the dock and press the power button, and then the dock will do the rest.

Powerful Rechargeable Battery

The battery is one of the most important matters to consider when buying a cordless electric shaver.

The Braun Series 7 7865cc electric shaver comes with a powerful Lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

The battery provides power for 50 minutes of cordless performance with 1 hour of full charge, according to Braun’s user guide and warranty agreement.

But we got more than the promised 50 minutes after every full charge. I think 50 minutes is enough period for a frequent shave every week.

According to the battery life and charging time, this shaving machine is one of the top-class shavers on the market.

When you think about more advanced shavers like the Braun Series 9 or Panasonic Arc5, they also have similar batteries, and the performances of the batteries are similar.

So, regarding battery quality, the Braun series 7 7865cc would be a great choice for cordless users.

5-Minute Quick Charge

The Braun Series 7 7865cc electric shaver has a 5-minute quick charging option for an urgent shave while the battery is fully drained.

So, if you forget to charge your shaver after the battery fully drains and you are in a hurry to have an urgent shave, you can charge for 5 minutes, and the shaver will provide enough juice for a full shave.

For that, you do not need to worry about battery life and charging.


The package has a premium travel pouch to carry the shaver safely.

There is a travel lock on the shaver to lock the head and power to protect the shaver from automatically or accidentally turning on.

The shaver comes with a multi-voltage charging adapter which allows you to charge the shaver directly or with the charging dock from anywhere in the world, as it supports 110v-240v power sockets.

The multi-volt adapter makes the shaver more travel-friendly and flexible for worldwide use.

LED Display

The Braun Series 7 shaver has a premium LED display under the shaver body, indicating 3 steps battery life while performing.

The shaver also shows the charging indication with an indicator while charging and need to charge.

The display is very helpful in keeping the shaver up to date with power.

Popup Trimmer

Braun Series 7 7865cc built-in popup trimmer

The Braun Series 7 electric shaver comes with a pop-up trimmer.

The trimmer helps to shape the sideburns and moustache and make some edge lines.

This final touch feature makes your shaving more précised with groomed sideburns, moustache, and edges.

Using the popup trimmer is very easy.

Press and slide the release button, and the trimmer will pop up. Then turn on the power and make your précised trim.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Since the shaver has an automatic cleaning and charging station, you can easily clean the device with the dock.

You need to put the shaver head into the cleaning dock after every use and turn on the power button of the dock.

Then the cleaning unit will automatically clean the shaver and make it germ-free.

While you are not agreeing to buy the cleaning cartridges and want to make manual cleans, it is also very easy.

The device is 100% washable, so you can make manual cleans with direct running water.

You need to rinse the head under the water and sake it to clean the shaver head.

There is a little cleaning brush with the box to make dry cleans after dry shaves.

Just brush off the debris with the cleaning brush to easily prepare the shaver for next use.

Replacement Part

All the replacement parts of Braun 7865cc are available on Amazon.

We especially want to talk about the replacement foil and cutter block. Braun recommends replacing the foil and cutter block every 18 months.

But I think it depends on your using habit.

If you use the shaver very frequently, you need to replace the foil and cutter block before 18 months, and if you use the device very occasionally, you can replace the part after more than 18 months.

The replacement Foil and cutter block for Braun 7865cc is Braun 70s.

You also need to replace the cleaning dock refill cartridge after using the attached one in the package.

Braun recommends replacing the cartridge every 2-3 months. But I recommend replacing the cartridge after becoming empty every time.

It may be before or after 3 months, according to your using habit.


Braun offers 2 years of limited warranty for their series 7 shavers.

If you find any manufacturing defect on the shaver or it faces any problem within 2 years after purchasing, Braun will repair or replace the shaver without any charge.

The warranty does not cover the foils and cutter blocks.

And if you make any issue with misuse or accident, the warranty will not cover it.
