Go for a better one. I've had two of these and the built in battery has died on both within the year. Charge only holds for approx 10 seconds.

ordered. cheers.

Yes, annoying aren't they? The real scandal is that the ones in the expensive toothbrushes don't last much longer and they make them sealed for life so you have to chuck the whole thing away.

I've had an Oral B rechargeable toothbrush for 12 years and its still going strong.

It's only had 48 new heads and 5 new handles (joke).

I have the same issue with cheap £13/£15 one.. I had it for a year and the battery needs to be recharged about twice a week...
So you say that if I get the £40 one, it will be the same problem ??? That really bugs me as I thought it would last longer.

Sounds about right but I'd recommend reading reviews on Amazon or somewhere to get a more representative sample.

I was stupid enough to buy one from eBay a few years ago which was obviously a reject because you could hear it "ticking" all the time even when it was switched off, wasting power. Of course it seems to work so you leave positive feedback and then you're pretty much stuck. That's the problem with eBay - no proper review system.

I have the same issue, I can hear a very low ticking noise when the power is off.. Nothing to do with ebay, I think this is the battery giving up.
Decided to buy a cheap one at Tesco at the end. If I know they last only a year or two, no point spending more than £15 on it.

my oral b is still going strong after 2 years, haven't noticed much of a battery life reduction. usually charge it about twice a month

some recent battery issues other people are having, not with just one model

seriously twice a month? pretty sure everyone I've had has needed charging weekly must be buying the wrong one, or brushing my teeth too much!

^agreed^

And the "atomic clock" shouldn't be happening - I would say the unit is faulty.

Thanks for the link to the "braun community" watson 44.. Seems I am not alone to have this problem..
I am glad not to have spent £40 on a new one, but just a tenner..
If the battery goes flat after a year, I'll get another one.. Or may be I'll try Phillips or another mark..

Cheers for the link, just ordered one.

i had the oral b 5000 and it lasted for 3 years before the battery stopped holding it's charge, it used to last a week with brushing my teeth twice a day now it lasts for 3 days

There is more than one problem here - most of the complaints on that link seem to be about faulty chargers or charging circuitry, i.e. no green light when you try to charge it. Weakening batteries are not complained about very often, but then people do use ambiguous terms like "take a charge".
