How to Replace the Battery in a Braun Shaver

Braun shavers for men and women are available in various styles and can be purchased at general home retail stores and department stores worldwide. Many Braun shavers include a self-cleaning base that also provides an electrical charge for the rechargeable batteries. Batteries are housed in the base of the shaver unit. Users can replace the batteries in a Braun shaver if they no longer hold an electrical charge, which may occur after a year or two of use.

Replacing batteries in a Braun shaver takes a few steps.

Step 1

Remove the electrical cord from the base of the shaver.

Step 2

Press down and slide off the panel on the front of the shaver.

Step 3

Remove the two nickel-plated batteries. Use these batteries as a guide to purchase new batteries at a hardware store or home repair store. Recycle the old batteries when finished. (Many hardware and home repair stores have battery-recycling stations.)

Step 4

Put the new batteries inside the shaver and press gently to pop into place.

Step 5

Place the front panel back on the shaver and plug the electrical cord into the bottom of the shaver. Connect to an electrical outlet to charge.
