As of June 2010, the Braun 790cc and 760cc constitute the series 7, the top-level electric shavers manufactured by German electronics and appliance company, Braun. The 790cc is slightly more expensive than the 760cc because it has one additional feature. Otherwise, they are practically the same electronic devices.

Technology

Each Series 7 electric shaver comes equipped with Pulsonic Technology, which makes these Braun products the first shavers in the world to have an active head oscillating at over 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute. This also includes a flexing shaving head for face contour adaptation, precision comfort blades, and a power comb to lift hairs that lie flat on the shaving area. These features are meant to give as close, precise and comfortable a shave as possible.

Cleaning

Both the 790cc and 760cc are washable; owners can simply use running water to do so. However, the 790cc has an additional feature: Braun's patented Clean & Renew System. With the touch of a button, the 790cc is cleaned, lubricated, dried and charged. This feature is meant to give the shaver a brand-new feeling after every use.

The cleaning period is estimated at around 32 to 43 minutes. The cleaning cartridge the 790cc contains should be replaced every 30 cleaning cycles. If not used daily, it should be replaced after around eight weeks.

Cutting System

The Braun 790cc and 760cc have a three-stage cutting system, with a long hair trimmer included. It also has Smart Foil, which is a foil pattern designed for capturing hairs growing from different directions, thus lessening the amount of strokes used for shaving. The foil and cutter cassette the shavers contain should be replaced every 18 months or when it is worn.

Charging

The Braun 790cc and 760cc can be fully charged to provide up to 50 minutes of cordless shaving time. There is a quick charge feature, however, for those who do not want a full charge. At the 790cc's and 760cc's LCD and LED display screens, respectively, is the charge status of the battery, which blinks during shaving or charging and gradually disappears with decreasing charge.

Prices

The Braun 790cc and 760cc can be purchased at retail stores such as Amazon.com, Wal-Mart, the Essentials.com, Drugstore.com, Kmart and Target. As of June 2010, the original manufacturer's suggested retail price of the 790cc is £175.4, while that of the 760cc is £155.90.
