The Braun 5150cs Shaver now includes a Turbo Mode, which means the shaver has up to 25,500 cutting actions per minute. It also includes a body groomer and beard trimmer with various attachments.

Overall, the Braun 5150 is another great shaver from Braun. It provides a very close shave. New for 2024, is the included turbo mode. The turbo mode did provide a faster shave, but I found it slightly less comfortable. If you have a little more time to shave, you might not need the turbo mode, and then you can turn off the setting or go with the Braun 5018.

Braun 5150 for Shaving

In typical Braun fashion, the Braun Series 5 shavers continue to be excellent budget-friendly shavers. In normal shaving mode, the 5150 Shaver has 18,500 cutting actions per minute. The shave is smooth, comfortable and very close. When I use the Series 5, I am always impressed with how close the shave is.

The 5150 does include AutoSense Technology so the shaver automatically adjusts power to match the thickness of your beard. You can use the shaver in the shower or with shave gel, but I prefer to use the shaver dry.

Turbo Mode

The Turbo Mode increases the cutting actions to 25,500 which decreases the shave time because more hairs are being cut with every pass. I did notice more tugging and discomfort with this mode, so I had to decrease the speed of my shaving movements. It did cut more with every pass though. If you are in a hurry, the turbo mode can help you get a quicker shave, but I prefer the normal mode.

Braun 5150 for Body Grooming

I did test the 5150 with the body groomer for trimming my chest. It worked well. It was comfortable and did not have any irritation. Plus, it is wet/dry, so it can be used in the shower. It has body groomer comb attachments of both 1mm and 3mm.

Braun 5150 for Beard Trimming

At the time of this article, I did not have a beard to test trimming. I rarely have a beard, so I might not be a good tester for this option. However, the shaver and body groomer work well, so I would expect the beard trimmer to perform well. It does include 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, and 7mm attachments.

What is in the Box?

The Braun 5150 Shaver

First, the box includes the Braun 5150 shaver. It has the traditional Series 5 shape. In fact, the shape is identical to the previous version of the Series 5. No surprises here, but the design is good, so why change it!

The head of the Braun 5150 has three cutting surfaces: 2 foil shavers and 1 middle trimmer. Each of these cutting surfaces has independent flexibility, but the entire head does not have any motion like the Series 7 does.

Sometimes people care to see the box. Here are pictures of all sides of the box. Note, my box arrived January of 2024, so depending upon when you are viewing this, the box may have changed.

Overall Thoughts for Braun 5150 Shaver

I am a big fan of the Braun Series 5 shavers. The only notable change over the previous version of the Series 5 (5018) is the inclusion of a Turbo Mode which increases the cutting actions per minute to 25,500. Also, the 5150 includes attachments for beard trimming and body grooming. If you want a budget-friendly shaver that can handle shaving, beard trimming and body grooming; then the Braun 5150 would be a great choice.
