Highly portable toothbrush
on 5 August 2014
Bought in April 2014, I've waited until now to give a review so that the toothbrush was thoroughly used.
These Oral B AA battery operated toothbrushes are excellent for everyday use or for when going on holiday. Admittedly, not as light as a manual toothbrush but then they won't add a huge amount of weight to your luggage either.
The only issue with them is that you need to be careful with the battery cover - some have stated that it cracks easily. The battery cover can get broken if you try to close it unevenly: there are 2x catches on the inside of the toothbrush that have to be squeezed together from the outside in order to hold the battery cap on. The catches can be a little difficult to squeeze together, but if you put the battery cap on, then place the toothbrush on a flat surface, squeeze the catches together whilst pressing down this works fine. The moment you try to force the cap over the catches without squeezing them together or not having the cap level is when the cap can split/crack.
Invest in some re-chargeable AA batteries. You'll save on the cost of Alkaline batteries.
Apart from the aforementioned small issue - its an excellent product.
