Hi all,
I was just wondering if you lot can answer me this simple question...
Scince I got this toothbrush for christmas off the kids it only ever gets put on charge when it starts bleeping at me as there is no electrical point in my bathroom .
Tonight we put power to the bathroom so now my brush can sit on its dock as it should do.
My question is should i have it on charge 24/7 or just charge it when needed?
thanks guys and girls

every charge decreases lifespan of battery

We always let our toothbrushes run out their charge before recharging again.

they are meant to be on charge 24/7.

they will only take charge when needed anyway.

Always let it run flat before a recharge extends the life.:thumbsup:

All this talk about conditioning your batteries and fully discharging before recharging was true for ni-cads and less so for ni-mh batteries but is dangerous talk for li-ion batteries which work best when regularly "topped up" so ignore the advice in the handbook about keeping the brush on permanent charge at your peril.

just read that the cheaper models (7000 and below) have ni-cad batteries and the ones above have li-on which last much longer.

guess that partially explains the price differentials.

so, it all depends what model you have. I have the 8000 and leave it on 24/7

after a 2 minute brush, it charges for about 30 mins.

my mistake. 8000+ range are also nimh so just use until about 50% gone and then re-charge
