The Series 3 340s-4 from Braun feature a triple-action cutting system, which uses twin foils and an integrated middle trimmer to give a closer shave. Each shaving element moves independently to adapt to the contours of your face, cutting both long and short hairs with every stroke.
The shaver is fully waterproof, so can be used under the shower, and with shaving gels or foam. It also means it can be easily and quickly rinsed clean under running water.
The Ni-MH rechargeable battery works both plugged in and cordless, and a full charge takes around one hour, and gives 45 minutes of cordless shaving. A 5 minute quick charge will be sufficient to provide one cordless shave.

Braun Series 3 340s-4 Review
The Braun 340s-4 electric shaver has all of the core features that you need in a shaver and gives a very smooth, clean shave with minimal irritation to the skin. The cutting elements are nicely sprung and they work well following the contour of your face, which helps the shaver give such good results. The shaver fits well in the hand, and is well-balanced. As with other Braun shavers, it feels like a good quality product.
The fact that this shaver is fully waterproof means you can use it in the shower, and it is easy to clean too. The one slight negative point compared to some of the other shavers we have reviewed is that a full charge will give 45 minutes of shaving time, which is slightly less than more expensive alternatives. In addition, it is not possible to use the shaver when plugged in – although a quick 5 minute charge is sufficient for one shave.
For the price, it is very good value – and highly recommended.
This shaver has all the essential features you could need, at a bargain price.
