Great Brush... Bad Battery,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Braun Oral-B TriZone 1000 One-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush (Packaging Varies) (Personal Care)
After reading all the marketing and watching the 3D model videos. I was amazed and intrigued by how clean my teeth could be. There's a pressure sensor that flashes when you are "brushing too hard". However, when I received the toothbrush and began to use it, that's when I realised that the pressure sensor triggers even with little pressure. Now, I'm no muscle man, so when I say "little pressure", I really do mean it.. With the little pressure that I'm applying the light triggers quite often. This may sound like a bad point, but actually, it's very good. I've realised why my old brushes were being "destroyed" so quickly! It looks like I have been using too much pressure.
Anyway, after the 2 minutes are up, my teeth do feel noticably cleaner.. If I could rub my fingers on my teeth like you do on a plate, I'm sure you could hear the squeaky cleaness!!
The bad point, is the battery!! Yes, it says it lasts 8 days if brushed for 2minutes twice a day.It's been 8 days and I still haven't needed to recharge the brush yet, which is great, but the charge time (which I found on day 1) is 18 hours!!! YES EIGHTEEN HOURS... You've got to be kidding me?? I did some research and discovered that normal charging is 16 hours..
Come on!! 32minutes use takes 16 hours to charge!?
IF it weren't for the battery issue, this brush would get a full 5 stars.
