Just out of warranty and broken! It fails to charge. I'm one of many dissatisfied customers it appears...

Summary: My feedback to the Braun Forum in response to many similar items failing after the warranty expires: Dear Braun, Are we spotting a trend yet?! I too purchased my shaver as a treat to myself after a long hot tour in Afghanistan at the end of 2011. I am now sadly a couple of months out of warranty. The symptoms of the fault are exactly as described here and I expect there are many more such victims of poor design/manufacture/materials out there.
Summary: for an expensive shaver this is very poor indeed. To say i am disappointed in the performance is a serious under statement. I am not dark and do not have a heavy beard or stubble but this shaver is rubbish. under the chin and the neck it is absolutely hopeless. I regret ever buying it.
Summary: Ok, before we start I'd better be fair and point out that I'm a wet shave guy as a rule. But I thought, as it's been years since I used an electric, that I'd give the Braun series 3 a go. My memories of electric razors, from probably twenty years or more ago, were of patchy inefficiency and dissatisfaction. It would seem little has changed. If your facial hair is long enough to actual need a shave, then it's probably too long use this razor on.
Summary: Hallo, bin echt sauer, habe jetzt schon drei Series 3 390cc gehabt, musste sie alle zurücksenden da innerhalb eines Jahres DREI mal die Station Kapputt ging...... Jedes mal die Pumpe, sie zieht nicht mehr......
