I'm a blue toothbrush
on 2 December 2012
I do prefer a rechargeable electric toothbrush to any other. A manual toothbrush just doesn't clean as well, and a non-rechargeable electric toothbrush eats up the batteries. This one eats up the electricity too, it takes maybe 18 hours to charge fully each time, but I suppose they all do.
The dentists also recommend using a rechargeable toothbrush, and supposedly Oral-B is the power toothbrush most recommended by them (although they have a vested interest so make of that what you will).
This brush has some special features like a timer, at 2-minutes a time, twice a day this means the charge dies after only around 40mins of use. Surely it should last longer than that? And what is all that charging doing to my electricity bill?
Also, to add a little further to my annoyance, the charger comes with a 2-prong plug rather than a 3-prong plug giving me just that little bit more inconvenience when I need to charge it because I need to use an adapter.
On the plus side I am now cleaning my teeth for 2 minutes at a time (as recommended by dentists again) thanks to the timer instead of the rush-job I used to do, and my teeth do fill cleaner, plus the brush heads are easy enough to get replacements for.
If you really want to know the effectiveness of this toothbrush then if we meet in the flesh I'd happily flash a toothy grin your way :D
