Description

The Braun Series 3 3040 Wet & Dry is a good choice if you have starting or light beard growth. The electric shaver has 3 different shaving elements, consisting of 2 shaver foils and a middle trimmer that lifts up the beard hairs prior to shaving. The shaving elements move independently so you can follow the contours of your face. In addition, the shaver has an extendable precision trimmer to tidy up your sideburns. Other than that, the shaver is waterproof, so you can choose a shaving method that suits you; dry, wet, or in the shower. Clean-shaven now? Simply rinse the shaver head under the tap.

    Excellent shaver, shaves fast and close

    Robert Hermsen | 12 September 2015 | Aanbevolen extra's: Starter model | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • shaves fast
    • longer hair better shaved
    • also suitable in the shower, and with gel
    • fits comfortably and securely in the hand
    • protective cap is not tight

    The differences with the predecessor, the 340s are in design a different plastic cap to protect the shaving foils, and the grip of the 3040s feels different.
    Functionally, the only difference is the white conduction from longer beard hairs to the middle blade, which is intended for shaving longer hairs.
    This device shaves noticeably faster, especially if your beard has been standing for a few days.
    The grip feels nice, and is also easy to hold in the shower. My experience is that shaving with shaving gel gives the best results, especially because everything stays nice and cool on your skin.
    But dry shaving is also good, and is especially useful if you want to shave quickly. Cleaning after a few dry shaves is easy. You knock out the shaving foil part on a flat surface, and use the supplied brush for the mechanism in the device.
    Or you rinse everything under a (warm) tap. The plastic protective cover has slots, so any moisture will evaporate after you have stored the device.
    I myself use a drop of sewing machine oil every week to maintain the shaving heads. This will probably extend its life.
    Inside the device is a counter that keeps track of how long it has been shaved in total, and after a year and a half or so it will recommend that the heads be renewed.
    The clippers work well, I find it a bit difficult to extend, but that is also a bit of getting used to.
    I think the plastic protective cover is a bit loose, which can probably come loose if you put the device in a toilet bag. That was slightly better with the 340s, due to a different design, but I would still choose the 3040 over the 340, especially because of the longer hair guide.
    The 3040 has one more LED to better see how full the device is, but in practice you never pay attention to that. You shave until it's empty, then charge. Charging for 5 minutes is also enough for a shave when the battery is empty.
    Total charging takes just over an hour, so that's pretty fast too.
    In the end, the device shaves quickly and close for an electric shaver. The fact that it can also be used with shaving foam, gel and in the shower is certainly an advantage when choosing.

    No frills device that just does what it's supposed to do.
    • Shave well smooth
    • Shave dry, wet and in the shower
    • Friendly price

    After years of wet shaving, now the convenience of electric. Best of both worlds!
    Better shave than expected. No frills device. Just does what it's supposed to do.

    Awesome!
    • shaves super smooth
    • price quality
    • design
    • wet & dry shave

    I've always used regular razors and had been thinking about buying a razor for a while, now I did and I'm sold! I can shave with it in the shower and it lies easily in the hand, with shaving you are done faster than with those disposable blades and it is also a beautiful design. I don't want to go any other way and immediately threw away my disposable blades! I definitely recommend this product to my friends, family and acquaintances.

    good device
    • easy to clean
    • good battery capacity
    • shaves very smooth
    • no case
    • the cashback system is not easy

    a good device, does exactly what is expected.
    easy to clean, long battery life.
    a simple case would have been good. (luckily I still had one from a previous device.)
