Fantastic product for travel - it is sturdy and the perfect companion for your handbag or a holiday. If you are used to an electric toothbrush but dont fancy carting around yours this is slim so fits anywhere and the lid make it so hygenic - nothing worse than going away somewhere and your toothbrush lying in a washbag picking up dirt or having to put it into a plastic bag everyday! I keep this in my handbag if I ever need to freshen up during the day. It also comes with a spare brush head and thankfully, a battery. Cons The price - I really don't know why it is the price it is when essentially it is a toothbrush with a battery and a lid. I went to buy this in store and nearly fainted so got it here where it was cheaper but IMO still overpriced.
This looks nice, is indeed slim, cute; perfect for the travel bag.
Or it would be, if it did anything. (Read on.)
The outer shell looks classy - exactly as depicted in the promotional photos. Once you open it, it's cheap looking - see my user photos.
Once you turn it on, it becomes apparent that this doesn't really do anything. You can hear a buzzing sound, and it vibrates a little in your hand, but the brush head remains still. (I very much doubt the puny vibrations loosen much — if any — plaque..)
I searched peer reviewed scientific papers (Pub Med) and was unable to find any clinical trials that prove the efficacy of this toothbrush. In other words, not only does it look and feel (near) useless, there's no scientific evidence that this toothbrush works.
It's kind of cheeky to call it a sonic toothbrush. [Analogy: i could attach a home-made motor to a push bike - it would be a "motorbike" in name, I suppose, but it would be crap!]
Even though it's cheap, why bother? It's crap. Cute, but crap. (Sorry.)
Tip: If you want a powered brush get an OSCILLATING toothbrush... (Good sonic brushes exist - this isn't one of them.)
● Tip for loading the battery: it goes in the opposite way that you might expect ( with the "+" side facing downwards). ● If you're wondering about replacement heads, you can get a pack here. (There's a spare in the box.)
