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 market price.

As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/63.230.9.155/braun/Srv_Man/SHAVER/" for the older service manuals (yours is likely there).

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.

If you are handy and know how to solder (and have the tools required), you can probably do the replacement yourself.

At the bottom of the razor are two plastic caps on either side of the charging port, you'll need to pry them out with a sharp pick or thin knive tip. Once removed, you can get to the screws that hold the front and rear case halfs onto the main shaver chassis where the PCB with the rechargeable battery is soldered onto the board.

Unsolder the battery and solder in the new replacement battery and put the case back together, making sure all the parts are in the correct posistion, and you're ready to recharge the shaver and start shaving again.

To find your replacement battery, try Electric Shaver Service. They also do repairs, so you might want to get an estimate if you don't want to do the repair yourself, etc. They're reliable and fast in getting shavers repaired and back to you quickly. 1-888-476-1785

Here's a link to the page with your battery on it and the toll free number to call for estimates too.

Replace batteries?


Panasonic uses a specialized battery inthir shavers that have prongs on the ends. These are used only in panasonic shvers. Panasonic does not and will not sell these batteries to the consumer. You can not replace the batteries in this model without sending the shaver to the authorized Panasonic repair center and it will cost you more to repair it than to buy a similar new model.
You may want to take a look at buying the updated version of your shaver. It uses the same foil and cutter and is VERY similar to yours. You wll find this model available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

Rechargable Stinger new bulb is dim orange


Could possibly be a bad switch, I would also get that battery tested out also. If you still have a receipt it should be covered under warranty. If not try sending it in anyway. Limited lifetime warranty does not include bulb, or batteries but, anything else on that Stinger should have a lifetime warranty. Of course that excludes abuse. Check out the website www.streamlight.com and go to FAQ for a nearest Authorized Service Center or send it directly to Streamlight. Address also listed on the website. Hope that helps ;)
