A better Braun Series 7- 760cc Shaver  5

For about forty years I have been using strictly electric Braun shavers. From a corded single screen one to now this Pulsonic three knife system.
My previous model was the 7526 and very similar, in fact the closeness of shave is the same. There are a few improvements: the body is easier to grip, battery is improved, and the cleaning system has more choices. In using the shaver I also like the angle that the cutting head has to the body of the shaver, when locking the cutting head it becomes even better.
If I have to find fault anywhere it would be the trimmer; it is somewhat flimsy and awkward to use but it works.
All in all the Braun gives you a shave as close as an electric shaver can and works well around problem areas like the throat and angles of the lower jaw. The cleaning system is also worth it because it cleans, lubricates, desinfects and charges the shaver with just a push of the button. How easy is that?
In close to forty years none of the Brauns I used has quit on me and this one makes my wife even happier!

Braun Series 7- 760cc Shaver Guide

I have been a blade shaver for 45 years because blades result in a consistently close shave, albeit a bit slow and requiring warm water and shaving cream and a rinse. Periodically, at intervals or 10-20 years I have tried an electric shaver and been disappointed. A month ago I tried the Braun 760 shaver. At first I was skeptical. It comes with a garage that has to be kept in cleaning solution. I thought it might be easier to blow it off to clean it. It looked like Braun was trying to make a living off consumables, like Gillette (relatively inexpensive shavers with costly blades to be replaced weekly. The shaver actually provides a close shave similar if not better than a blade without skin irritation. It is much quicker and does not require softening with warm water or lather. In fact, Braun recommends that you shave before you wash your face. The automatic cleaning cycle seems to work ok with a touch of a button. The cleaning solution Braun Clean & Renew Refills (3 Pack)is relatively cheap (3 for $19 on Amazon)and last for 6-8 weeks. The device charges in the garage and cleans with a touch of a button. It is easy to use, without skin irritation, cuts or much attention, A quick touch uptakes 30 seconds. A serious shave will only take a minute or two. It is painless even if you skip 2 or 3 days. I plan to keep my blade for travel, but I may give that up too.
