SOURCE: will not take charge
Yes, there is a rechargeable battery located in the shaver. To get inside, you have to remove the shaving head and then at the bottom, on either side where you plug in the charging cord, are 2 small plastic plugs that you have to remove with a sharp pick or thin knive blade.
Once you have the plugs out, you remove the screws and then you can separate the front and rear panels from the shaver body to get at the circuit board, which has the rechargeable battery soldered onto the PCB (printed circuit board).
To replace the battery, you have to unsolder it and reinstall a new one by soldering it back onto the board. If you're not comfortable doing this, or don't have the tools needed to undertake the repair, I can suggest Electric Shaver Service in Nebraska, they repair most shavers in a week or so and are very good at what they do. You can give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 or go to their website to get a repair request form, under "help".
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

According to the Braun manual for your 5414 Contour, the specs for charging are printed on the electric shaver cord plug. (it's REALLY small print, so I'd get a magnifying lens to look at it!)
There isn't anything in the manual about the multiple voltage for charging the shaver, so I'd have to defer to the Braun (Gillette/Proctor & Gamble) customer service folks to make absolutely certain of what can and can't be used as a charging voltage before trying.
Here's a link to your manual, in case you're missing yours.
You can ALSO reach the Braun Customer Service folks by calling them at 1-800-BRAUN 11 (1-800-272-8611)
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

You can certainly go to shaveroutlet.com and pay $9.99 per cell, or go to a place like onlybatteries.com and pay $3.69 per cell with a higher mAh (2200 vs. 1650, which means a longer run time).
Keep in mind that if you're not skilled at soldering, you'll have to buy the batteries plus circuit board. This will end up costing you nearly $40. In that case, you're probably better off going with a new shaver (get a new old stock 8000 series shaver for around $50 on average, at "that auction site"). :-)

It my be the batteries but they usually go bad very gradually and you should still be able to use it from the cord. It sounds more like a problem with the circuit board.
I suggest that you first find out if it can be covered under warranty. You can call an authorized service center at 847-869-7755. They can tell by the date code on it when it was made. If it was made less than 2 years ago. you shouldn't need your receipt.
