Question about Philips Philishave HQ5812 Electric Shaver
And need new recharged batterys for it;
With a little bit of skill and patience, you can replace the rechargeable battery in your Braun shaver for less than $12.00 or so (w S&H included). I've replaced mine twice over the past 10 years (and the foil) and it's still running great.
You can order the replacement rechargeable battery online, I've used Electric Shaver Service in Nebraska for getting parts I needed.
If you want to buy a new one, try Shaver.com as they have your beloved model for $50.00
If you decide to do the battery replacement yourself, you'll have to be able to unsolder the old battery from the circuit board and resolder the new battery back onto it, once you open up the shaver.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Batteries can be replaced in most Braun shavers, while leaving the
current circuit board intact. Braun didn't intend for this to be done,
and as such does not sell the batteries alone (they include them on the
circuit board). There are some aftermarket Braun shaver parts sellers
that can supply just the batteries, but they charge a rather high
price. Go to a website like "onlybatteries.com" and you can get AA
NiMh flat top batteries that will fit your Braun for less than half the
As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/220.127.116.11/braun/Srv_Man/SHAVER/" for the older service manuals. More modern day ones can be found by Google searching.
Of course, if you're not comfortable doing soldering, then you'll have to replace the batteries along with the circuit board. Suppliers like "shaveroutlet.com" provide these parts, as VtToolMan mentioned.

If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

The batteries are soldered into place. You will need a soldering iron and electrical solder to replace them. Unsolder the old batteries from the circuit board and solder in the new batteries
If you are not able to do this repair yourself, shaveroutlet.com can do it for you. See information at the link below

Testimonial: "THANK YOU"
I guess by now you have either thrown out the shaver or found out how to take the cover off.
The secret is to remove the bottom cover plate (Cap) as described in the manual. There is a small slot at the back of the charging cord recess (see photo) that allows you to pop it off with a small, flat blade screwdriver. There are 2 screws under the cap, and 2 more at the top under the trimmer assembly, which is removed as described in the manual (the manual states there are only 3 screws holding the cover).
The batteries are AA NiMH, 1800 mAh capacity, which I hope to get at The Source (used to be Radio Shack in Canada).
When removing the batteries, make sure to carefully pry off the heat sensor which is attached to one battery with a dab of silicone (and which must be reattached later).
I have attached a few photos to show the slot in the cap, and the battery wire colours when you are reconnecting new batteries.

I have a Philips shaver (Philishave 990) can charge the batteries when it runs on AC power, not battery. Next time the power is gone and the battery re-charging it shows 2 on the display, then start it on the mains. Is it the battery is defective? Can it be replaced? Type? How can it be purchased.
