Braun 5513 Stopped working after charge.

I’ve just had my second Braun 5513 stop working after (I believe) the first charge after using a few times. Both trimmers seemed to be working well with normal battery discharge and would still power on before I plugged them in. However, when I tried to turn on after sever hours of charging, there was no motor action at all. I should note that the same charger was used both times, so maybe it’s frying something but I can’t think of what else it may be. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

my braun 5513 won't charge only ,purchased it 3 days ago


Hi @ murray.wallace6

Take it back for a replacement or refund as it should be covered by the manufacturer's warranty




@ murray.wallace6

That is in relation to the ambient temperature where the trimmer is being charged

Most rechargeable batteries won't charge properly if the temperature is below freezing or if it is too hot e.g. >120°F (50°C)

If you bought it on a credit card sometimes they might take a credit card statement showing when and who you bought it from as proof of purchase.


room temp is was between 20/25 celsius ,,

Hi @adaml0030 ,

Have you got a DMM (digital multimeter) so that you can test the voltage output from the charger?

This link shows the the output from the adapter for a Braun Type 5513 is 2.3VDC. It may also be stamped on the charger itself if you wish to verify what the charger’s DC output voltage is.

This would be the first thing to check and see if the charger was providing the correct output voltage.

If it is providing the correct output when testing the output voltage (DMM Voltmeter leads connected to the plug connectors at the end of the cord that goes into the shaver) flex the cord where it leaves the adapter and check that the voltage remains constant. If the cord is fractured then the voltage fluctuations might have damaged the charge circuit in the shaver. Also flex the cord where it enters the plug at the end of the cord for the same reason

If it all tests OK, then you will have to open the shaver and inspect and test for any problems.

Here’s a link to a video which shows how to replace the battery in a Braun BT3020 which I believe is a Type 5513 so it may be of some help.

I have a temporary fix for your trimmer. If you stand there for 20 minutes pushing in and out with the plug into your shaver, it will eventually gain enough charge. You would normaly move the cable around until you see it get charge but, Unlike your phone the trimmer doesn't tell you if it's getting charge or not. YOU'RE WELCOME! :)

If your Braun beard trimmer is not charging, there could be a few different reasons for this. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check the charging cord and the charging port on the trimmer to make sure they are free of debris and in good condition. If the cord or port is damaged, the trimmer may not be able to charge properly.
  2. Make sure the charging cord is securely plugged into a working outlet. If the outlet is not functioning, the trimmer will not be able to charge.
  3. Check the charging indicator on the trimmer. If it is not lit up or is flashing, this could indicate an issue with the charging process.
  4. If the trimmer is still not charging after checking the above issues, it could be a problem with the battery or charging circuitry. In this case, you may need to contact Braun customer service for further assistance.

Hi ! @jayeff

If I get more powerful adapter to charge the product, will it be working while charging ? Because now when i plug to charge it i can’t use the product Braun bt3222, So my question is if I get usb charger for the product and use a more powerful adapter to charge it will it work while charging ?

I don't know the trimmer so I'm not sure.

What is the voltage output from the adapter you're using now? It should be printed on the adapter itself.

A USB charger usually supplies +5V DC so if the voltage output from the adapter you're using now is less than this, plugging in a USB charger will damage the circuit in the trimmer, unless the USB charger drops its output voltage down to what is needed by the trimmer., e.g. adapter designed to be plugged into a USB port but supplies the appropriate voltage output. It has to be a purpose designed USB charger for the trimmer, not just a general USB charger.

Also having a charger with the correct voltage but with a higher current output may work but it depends on the circuit design in the trimmer. It may be that it is designed not to operate when the adapter is connected so as to charge the battery more quickly.

Hi all,

I got the same problem : failed to turn on after charging and found out the issue: it's the supply barrel jack!

Let me explain:

  • I tested the NiMH battery and it was good (voltage & discharge charge current)
  • I tested the motor and it was good (close to 0 ohm between poles), it also worked fine when supplied around 1.3V DC
  • I tested the switch and it was also good
  • I came to suspect the diode between the supply jack and the positive supply but by rebuilding the schematic, it could not be suspected

Then I tried to connect directly the battery to the motor bypassing the PCB and found out it worked fine. So the only remaining component was the supply jack!! It's not a dual pole jack, it's a 3 pole and I think the issues lies here: the 3rd pole is switched open (or close) when inserting the supply jack and this prevent the trimmer to start when it's charging.

As I didn't want to buy another supply jack, I just soldered 2 small cables between the battery and the motor and exited the device through a small hole: when connected together, it allowed to start the trimmer, but to charge it, I need to untie the 2 cables. Yes, it's unaesthetic but it's fine for me!

I hope this help, honestly it's very simple to solve and it's not the usual suspect (the battery)!
