Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush Features
Gently Cleans Teeth with Sonic Technology
Removing up to two times more plaque than a manual toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush uses powerful Sonic technology to clean teeth with up to 31,000 strokes per minute. These sweeping motions drive fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along your gum line, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth. The Essence is gentle enough to use on veneers, braces, implants, and sensitive teeth.
Contoured Bristles and Soft-Grip Handle for Comfort
With smooth, contoured bristles that correspond to the natural shape of your teeth, this Sonicare toothbrush delivers a thorough, comfortable brushing experience. Its angled neck provides optimal reach for the bristles, which have extra-soft rounded ends that go deep between teeth to remove plaque and reduce gingivitis. The blue soft -touch grip makes the handle easy to hold and maneuver while brushing.
Easy-Start and Smartimer Simplify Brushing
You need only to apply light pressure when guiding this toothbrush over your teeth--the Essence will do the work for you through its high speed bristle motion and dynamic cleaning action. The easy-start option gently increases the toothbrush's power over the first 12 uses to help you adjust to using a power toothbrush. The Smartimer feature sets brushing time to two minutes, the time recommended by dental professionals, and shuts the toothbrush off after that cycle.
Two Weeks of Power on a Single Charge
Because the Essence can last up to two weeks between charges, you can leave its charger at home for your travels. A soft travel case and hygienic travel cap are included for convenience. An indicator on the brush displays remaining battery life and blinks when you need to recharge. The Philips Sonicare Essence is backed by a full 2-year warranty and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

I would skip this design and go for the kind with the thinner brush head, not this big hollow design. The other type is way easier to clean and lasts much longer!
Some downsides: the charger is 110v only, so useless for traveling out of the country--but--it does stay charged for two weeks. (I suppose you can put it on a step-down transformer and you may have one anyway.) Depending on what promotional pack you get, you may not get a soft case (this doesn't have one.) There is a cap for the head, so it will stay clean in your kit.
There are cheaper alternatives: Oral-B Vitality Prowhite Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush costs less, could work as your spare. The battery life is shorter (1 week) so you'd need a charger along for trips.
Summary: for travel or if you don't want to spend a lot for an ultrasonic Philips brush, this is a decent alternative. The heads are expensive, however.
The only problem is that the brush needs to be disconnected from the base every few days as it collects water and it becomes dirty/moldy all the time. Despite this design problem, if cleaned regularly, it does an excellent job ;-)
