Electric shavers: Compare features & prices Braun Series 1-190 review Back to Results

The reasonably priced Braun Series 1-190 is a basic foil electric shaver, with a price tag to match. It's light on features - it doesn't self clean and there's no battery-level indicator or charging stand. But it does have a beard trimmer and a quick-charge function. We pit this electric shaver against more expensive models to see how its shave compares.
