Bathroom Shaver Socket

I need to keep two * electric toothbrushes on charge when not in use.
All the shaver sockets I've seen seem to have 2 connections - 115 and 230. Can I plug one toothbrush in each?
Else, do I need to buy two separate ones, or is there a type that allows two toothbrushes simultaneously?

Electric toothbrushes are usually 220-240v so the 115 will be no good but are you sure its simply not switchable between 115 and 230.

shaver sockets usually carry 2 types of voltage. 1 socket for each.
Usually toothbrushes, shavers, etc. are dual voltage so can be plugged in each (as it is cheaper to make one that does both voltages, than to do one for each voltage & then package, distribute, etc. around the world making sure 110v goes where 110v is & 220v where 220v is). EU is 220v & US is 100v
However, it is best to check the instructions manual to make sure. It may say on the base 110-220 so that means its dual
or if it only says 110 then its 110 & same for 220

Might want to also check the instructions on the toothbrush re charging as some state not to leave on permanent charge.

Just buy an adapter and plug it into a normal socket. That's what I do with mine.

Adaptor is what we use tucked away out of sight. We rotate 3 toothbrushes on one charger. Says something in instructions about letting it go flat every once in a while

Do they use the same charger? most only need charging once a week, just use the same charger in the 230.

I personally avoid leaving any charger on 24/7

I have a number of items that are left on charge permanently.
e.g. toothbrushes, hand hoover, glass water vac, cordless phones etc
I'm pretty sure they are all meant to be kept on charge.

It depends on the battery, and how intelligent the charging process is, like I said it's a personal choice, I prefer coming home to a house that's not on fire X)

A large percentage of fires in the uk are electrical, 9 out of 10 of those are caused by electrical products, you prefer to increase the odds, I prefer to lessen them
