I love the clean feeling after use and I cannot live ...
on May 5, 2015
Clean very well, but last only 7months of use (2 times/day)
This is so far the most expensive toothbrush I have ever bought. I love the clean feeling after use and I cannot live without it. Sadly the unit stopped taking charge and would randomly start on and off by it own. I did a little research and people said moisture might have gotten inside to the inside circuit board and caused a malfunction. They would recommend to remove the base with a flat head screwdriver and blow dry it. OK, I did that and upon opening the base, I realized there were 2 tiny copper wires that connect the base cap directly to the circuit board, as a result (it worked like a trap!!!), they broke. As you can see, there were a lot moisture got trapped inside the unit (I always wiped clean and dried the unit after every use, this thing is an expensive toothbrush!).
This unit was sealed pretty good from outside, there would be no impossible way to get in and blow dry the inside on a daily basis(you would think it should be sealed and stayed dry inside, but no). This is more like a design flaw, moisture got in and could not get out, tiny wires connect directly to the opening cap....
I will not waste $70 again on a toothbrush that can last only half a year. I still have 2 refill heads and not sure what to do with it. May be I will use them as ordinary toothbrush, lol
