That's odd, we have no problem with these in our house.

I also like the fact that I can use my rechargeable AA batteries, so I always have some charged on standby.
From personally owning one of these, I can confirm they are crap!

Heat!
Addt Info - AA Battery operated
Low powered and battery cover becomes impossible to remove and replace after a while. Consider it disposable!

i bought 5 last year for my family. only 1 had been broken by the youngest son. he throwed it in the water. others are still working. the best choise, imho, for a large family. especially for children.

Did you changed the brush head yet?

Are any of the Oral B models actually any good? I had a Philips Sonicare that lasted 6 or 7 years that finally died. Replaced it with a Braun 2500 and it's like going from a Ferrari to an old diesel 206... It sounds far more industrial but also sounds like it's tearing itself to pieces internally. Definitely doesn't clean anything like as well and the battery life is much less than advertised and worse than the Philips.
I have had two of these in my household for a couple of years now and I’m very happy with them.

The battery covers can get a bit gammed- up and then become difficult to replace, but the trick is to use something like a baby wipe around both ends of the joint, job done!

Another thing that can happen with these is that the removable head can become clogged up with detritus and stop the motor from turning. It seems like it is broken, but you remove the head and clean out the goo and you will then find that the brush works perfectly again.

As regards power, they are perfectly powerful enough. You do not want too much power as you can damage the enamel on your teeth.

I have been seeing a periodontist for a few years now and he has informed me that I have a gold standard teeth and gums and hence I highly recommend these toothbrushes. I paid 9 pound last time out and so this is a bargain. I will be buying another one without hesitation.
I just use mine for holidays....although the battery cover is difficult to remove I agree.

Can you use heads from the electric toothbrush range? Do these heads rotate or just vibrate?
No comment on these, but eBay sells compatible brush heads at a fraction of the price of the 'official' Braun ones.
We use these in our household, not had any failure issue other than the head gumming up, so is fixed by replacing head plus the battery cover getting a bit stuck as others have mentioned, a good clean suffices. Use the standard Oral B replacement heads, buy them when on offer. Have found these toothbrushes for sale in Iceland from time to time at £5. Heat for the deal BTW.

the power on mine seems ok, and they clean much better than my manual, but I have the same problem as you re removing and replacing- it certainly isn't easy
I have used these for many years and keep a spare (left my last one at the holiday hotel so am purchasing) . Great price, superb cleaning. Yes, the battery cover just needs a wipe over with a wet wipe or damp cloth to ensure easy closure when changing the batteries.

Yeah and they are garbage.
If you compare one of the fakes and the official ones, the bristles are different quality.
For something as important as Oral Health, I'd rather pay the £10 for like 4 offical ones which lasts the entire year (replace every 3 month).
I'm sure the fakes do a good job, but I just can't trust them with something so important.

I've had my Oral-B Pro 600 for just over 2 year (3 year warranty), last week it decided to stop holding a charge and only lasting like 2 brushes. Contacted warranty support and they sent out a brand new Pro 600 no questions asked (received it yesterday) only took like 3-4 days. Fantastic support.

Normally always £5 in home bargains and other discount shops I think. No one needs to spend more on an electric toothbrush considering a manual is acceptable. Get your own rechargeable batteries rather than the other models where you can’t replace them after 1 year when they inevitably die. No need to mess around with yet another specific charger too.

They maybe don't last as long as the official ones, but my mouth feels just as clean afterwards.

Nice that the warranty experience was so painless.

I've been using a WaterPik recently. Can't beat it for that fresh mouth feeling!
I have two of these brushes: the one I bought (they're always around a fiver) and the one which Oral B sent me free to replace it as the 'O' ring on the battery cover swelled and became near impossible to remove/replace. The newer one has done it too and Oral-B have not disputed it. This appears to be the experience of many users, as reflected in posts here.

They are not nearly as good as a 'proper' Oral-B powered brush but they are handy for occasional use while travelling, etc. though you should treat them as disposable. As they come with decent batteries and the brush head alone is worth around £2 that really isn't such a bad deal unless you consider the green aspects of disposal.
Why include 2 AA batteries if says that is Battery operated ( in singular )????



Also if it is not working why people is no using the 2 years warranty???

Very low power anyway!

"Battery operated" means it takes batteries. Ranging from one to multiple. I don't think I've ever seen "Batteries operated" that looks even more odd
