Now Braun offers so actually razor in all colors and price regions, threatening overview here but lost. The devices from the 3 series include at least entry-level and promise the best value for money. The technique is identical on all 3-series models, the equipment is different then but seriously. The 340s offers although no cleaning station (like the more expensive brothers 370cc and 390cc), allows also a wet shaving as opposed to the other models. This is quite surprising given the fair price of around 70 euros. We want to be the test so check how the series 3 340s else beats and cuts off how he compared to other razors.

This is firstly on the not too lightweight and secondly at the chic blue-and-black color scheme. The battery is fully charged after about an hour and allow around 45 minutes. For a device that can be operated exclusively through the battery, this is of course of crucial importance and also no weaknesses here we would like to the 340 s lucky. As soon as the battery indicator lights red and thus warns that goes the charge to end, enough power yet still mostly for a last, complete shave. And there then the fast charge for the emergency that at least offers juice after about 5 minutes on the power supply for a fleet shave.
The integrated trimmer properly mastered the obligatory tasks such as trimming of sideburns. For the freestyle, such as full beards or elaborate Dressups, should expect but not too much and make better use of special trimmers. So allows the trimmer of the Brown be 340 s just no different length settings and also larger areas thus but somewhat tedious. The bottom line does the precision trimmer but most everyday tasks thoroughly and mostly painless.
Cleaning succeeds usually uncomplicated of 340s. The foil can be removed with one hand and completely rinsed under the tap, simply be together with the razor. Shaving succeeds just in short stubble very quickly and without that, the skin is irritated unnecessarily. If you have long hair (from 3-5 days), already the trimmer should be used because it can grip anything else. 340s shines above all in regular, best daily shaving. Some shaving cream or gel, and warm water the result has can ourselves than actually even a bit more.
