The handle on mine does not even get warm when it is charging...and I have never seen this issue with a Braun Oral-B brush...doesn't sound normal to me.
I think this brush has more vibrations per minute than my previous Braun Oral-B brush. Since I have been using these brushes I haven't had a single cavity, and often get comments at the dentist about how there is almost no work for them to do.
I buy the brushheads off fleaBay for a lot cheaper than you can find elsewhere, and everyone in my family has a Braun Oral-B brush in some form or fashion. I highly recommend this brush. Why wouldn't you spend $16 + maybe another $10 annually for brush heads to insure a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile?
UPDATE: 9/30/2010. It's been over three years and it's still working great. The motor is just as strong and the battery still holds a good charge as the day I purchased it. Same with the unit my wife uses. Just thought you'd like to know.
I bought two of these brushes, one for my home bathroom and one for my work-out bag. Love the price and timer feature...
But it seems that once I've used up the power in the brush, it wont recharge properly. I'm experiencing this problem with both brushes no matter how long I leave it in the charger.
If there is a simple fix for this then I'd say 5 stars. If not, then 2 Stars is well earned, seeing as how I've been on their support line waiting (as I type this) for over an hour.
The head of the toothbrush should be changed every three months; I plan on changing mine every two months just to be extra careful with my teeth. In addition, this toothbrush DOES get hard to reach areas inside your mouth.
One reviewer comments that the brush is noisier than they were expecting. It does make noise but in my opinion it's not very loud at all. Don't let this deter you from buying this toothbrush. Oral B makes high quality dental products.
Overall, this is one toothbrush I intend to use for quite some while to come. I love that it's portable and overall it's a great buy.
The toothbrush is recharged with an adapter unit. Remove it from the base, put on your toothpaste, and turn the unit on. The agitation has a little bit of splashback to it, so minimize it by brushing the back of your teeth first and then moving to the front; then the outside surfaces, then the inside. Also, the brush head is fairly small compared to standard brushes. I thought it was a little distracting at first until I started brushing to pay more attention to individual teeth rather than sweeping broadly across them. Finally, I thought the timer was a digital read-out; your brush will vibrate a couple of short pulses to let you know that two minutes is up. It was disorienting at first. I thought the brush was out of power, but I figured it out.
It's a solid investment, and the good thing is that it's relatively affordable and still an effective device compared to more expensive powerbrushes on the market.

These toothbrushes have lasted for a while. I believe I've had this for at least 3 years. The strength is nice and the settings are great. Read morePublished 8 months ago by buyer
