Braun Series 3 Shaver. I now have three of these devices, 2

Resolved Question:

Braun Series 3 Shaver. I now have three of these devices, 2 of them new. None will charge properly, taking over a day for enough charge for one morning's shaving. The old one used to charge fine, but I thought it had got to end-of-life which was why I got the new ones. With them acting the same, I'm wondering whether I have some sort of voltage problem.

The original one is about 3 years old, the other two are basically brand new, 6 weeks and two weeks respectively.

Hi thanks for that.You may have a voltage issue, I assume you are using 3 different chargers as well?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Two different chargers (can't find the third) , tried with all three shavers.

Thanks, ***** ***** try to charge these in a different location or better yet a different home or business altogether to determine for sure if that is the case or if you simply have defective Braun shavers, possible bad batteries is what this almost always works out to be.I have seen a lot of Braun shaver issues over the past three years here, and most of them were for bad batteries right from brand new. This can happen if the units sat a long time as these batteries don't last if that happens. Also the life expectancy of these batteries is about 2 years used or not.I wish I had better news for you, I really do. But you can order replacement batteries if you want, Me? I woudl return the two, or call Braun using the phone contact information here, and tell them that you are very dissatisfied and they will likely send you new shavers or replacement batteries for free or at a discount. They are usually very good with that;-)Please visit or call Braun: http://www.braunservice.co.uk/In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.
