    Electric Toothbrush

    I am looking for an Electric toothbrush, don't want cheap and nasty but don't want to go overboard.

    Looking for one that spins but at a decet speed, Not sure if i want a rechargeable one as i can't find any info on the charging times, I don't have a 2 pin shaver type socket in the bathroon to leave it on charge either,

    Can anyone give some suggestions on what to go for or look for when buying one?

    we've had a Braun Oral-B Sonic for a couple of years now, and as long as you discharge the battery completely every 6 months it works fine, it gives a really "dentist fresh" clean and since we have been using it have never needed a scale and polish when we have bee nfor our 6 month check-ups. You can get this for £42 from Amazon

    Hope this helps!

    This does works at exactly the same speed as the more expensive brushes and has nimh batteries which should last a lot longer than the older models,

    To my knowledge they all need a two pin shaver socket to charge from, but you can buy an adapter that converts a normal plug socket into one. The battery powered ones won't last so long on charge or be as good in terms of brushing, so its worth buying an adapter and getting an electric like the two above. Hope that helps!

    Thanks for all the links but after still looking at them i still can't find any mention of how long these things take to charge up after using. Don't really want to have to leave it plugged in on charge all the time.

    The 1000 takes a 14hour charge from totally dead but this lasts around a week for one person,So in hteory you would just need to put on charge once a week,

    Thanks for the quick reply.:thumbsup:

    That does seem like an awfully long time to charge for just a average 30 minutes of use.:?
    Is this the same with most electric toothbrushes?

    That is from totally dead but the batteries are Nimh so have no memory effect so can be left on charge all the time unlike other which use Nicd,The point is in youre case you could charge just once or twice a week overnight,
