In the test: tizi tank trunk - USB charging cable for Braun electric shavers and epilators

A package from Equinux arrived today that contained a small adapter cable with the cute name “tizi fuel nozzle” stuck. In detail, this is a charging cable with a USB connection, which has a plug on the other side that fits Braun electric shavers and epilators. This means that these devices can be charged with any USB power supply unit and any power bank.

Advantages of the tizi tank nozzle

I still have to smile about the product names from tizi: rascal, lateral thinker, tank station, gas station and tank nozzle. That's easier to remember than "Charging Cable MF-833G", isn't it? In any case, I won't forget the fuel nozzle - not even when I'm going on vacation in the near future. Up to now I have always taken a wet shaver with me for reasons of space, because I was too lazy to fumble the original Braun power supply from the station and pack it. My wife laughs enough as it is when I tie up my bag with all the power adapters, distribution sockets and cables. ;-)

From now on I pack the tizi tank trunk in my toiletry bag and can use it to use my razor (I have the Braun Series 9 - a recommended device) to a USB power supply that I always have in my luggage anyway - namely the tizi filling stationwhich not only offers 3 USB-A ports, but also a USB-C port with 60 W power (test report will follow soon!).

My measurements showed about 1 watt power consumption from the power bank when charging my Braun Series 9 shaver.

Charging with a power bank - no problem!

With the adapter cable, you can now charge your Braun shaver via power banks. To see how much charging current is required from the power bank, I have a USB multimeter between the power bank (here the Zendura A2) and tizi tank nozzle (and razor) plugged in. The readings are around 5 volts and 0,2 Ampere, which corresponds to 1,0 watts of power. Any power bank should be able to handle this for a few hours to charge the shaver. I assume the battery in the shaver is smaller than that in most smartphones.

Conclusion: sensible travel accessory

For me it is Adapter cable “tizi tank nozzle” a recommendation – assuming, of course, that you have one of the compatible Braun razors or epilators. There is not much to say about the workmanship of tizi products: the cable is solidly built, the spiral winding is practical if you want to stow it away and the plugs are firmly seated in the sockets. I'm also not worried about the durability, since Equinux has a good reputation to lose with their brand "tizi" - here they certainly don't sloppily, as with some Chinese stalls.

Good buddies: Braun Series 9 razors and the tizi tank trunk - always with me on my multi-day trips.

Advertising or honest test?

I admit that some of my articles may sound very exuberant. In fact, that always happens when products really convince me. And that's exactly how I feel with the tizi tank nozzle. I received the fuel nozzle free of charge, but otherwise received no money from Equinux. The idea and implementation of the fuel pipe are simply successful and I wanted to introduce it here to give it a good start.

And to the many positive words about the “tizi” brand: In fact, most of the tizi products that I use at home I actually bought myself because I find the quality of the manufacturer convincing.
