It doesn’t have the smart technology, per se, but it does have great usability and will definitely satisfy your shaving needs.
The Braun Mobile Shaver is easy to clean, cheap to buy and comes with AA batteries, ditching the use of a power cord or universal charging plugs. In fact, it gives a quick, smooth shave, and can be used as a regular shaver, rather than just for traveling.
In fact, this shaver is a must-have for shavers out there and has been known to work perfectly well for over three years, with and without having to replace the head.

In the box
- Two Alkaline AA Batteries
A No-Fuss package, giving you exactly what is promised; a shaver.
The Braun M90 Mobile Shaver has a unique shaving head. There is a foil pattern, which catches hair growing in lots of directions and cuts closely and comfortably.
The single blade also makes it ideal for sensitive skin. Sometimes, when traveling, skin can become inflamed, irritated or more sensitive to the new environment, making this shaver ideal to minimize any visible irritation. This is also great for novice shavers, as it won’t cut the skin like a razor, gives a clean shave, but also won’t irritate skin that has never been shaved.
Small and compact
Only 4.6 inches, the Mobile Shaver is actually purposed for traveling. It weighs less than 7 ounces and takes batteries which mean you don’t have to worry about plug sockets, charging or voltage differences. As the Trimmer is built in, and it comes with a Twist cap to protect the blades; it is perfect for on-the-go.
However, the downside to this is that there is no battery display, so your shaver could run out immediately. There is no cleaning system either, so you have to clean under a faucet. Yet, this is easier for on-the-go, and if you remember to pack a pair of spare batteries, or rechargeable ones, you won’t be caught off guard!
The Braun Shaver has one blade, and whilst some may see this as a disadvantage, it actually makes the shaver kind to sensitive skin, leaving smooth hairless skin without any irritation. There is some disadvantage that the replacement parts are difficult to find but this shaver costs a little more than $20, so repurchasing it is not going to break the bank.
What’s great is that instead of a separate click on Trimmer, the Braun Mobile Shaver’s Trimmers already attached and just needs to be slid on. It is great for trimming sideburns and mustaches. However, what this means is that if you don’t use the Trimmer, it is an add-on that you cannot remove.
This is ideal because it means you cannot forget it anywhere. All you need is the shaver really.
The Braun M90 Mobile Shaver takes two alkaline AA batteries, which are included in the box when you first purchase the shaver. This means that you do not have to charge the shaver, and you don’t have to pack a long charging cord, base stand or any of that. Simply pop in batteries, which are approximated to last four months of daily use, and you are good to go.
In fact, if you purchase rechargeable batteries, then you can charge those batteries, instead of purchasing new ones every single time.
It also is great for traveling because, as mentioned earlier, you don’t have to worry about worldwide voltage differences or plug socket differences.
A downside is that there is no low battery warning or smart user interface in this mobile shaver. It will simply lose battery one day. This isn’t too much of a problem if you remember to keep spare batteries with you, and for such a cheap shaver, it isn’t much of a surprise.
Unlike other smart shavers, the Braun M90 Mobile Shaver does not have a cleaning system. It is quite simply a travel shaver. What this means is that you need to clean it yourself, using a purchased cleaning brush, and running it under the faucet to stop hairs collecting there.
As it is a Wet & Dry shaver, you have to make sure that you get all the cream or gel off, as this will affect the shaving quality of the shaver.
