First battery powered toothbrush purchase

I took my vitality rechargeable tooth brush with me on a trip to Britain. For some reason I was unable to recharge my brush even though I had an adaptor and the correct plug. So I purchased a battery powered toothbrush in London, type 4739, for £12.99. I found this to be an excellent replacement as my heads from the vitality also worked on type 4739. However, when I try to find this toothbrush in the USA it is not shown on the web. Can you help? Thanks for listening.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Perfect for Travel

We liked our Oral-B rechargeable at home and wanted to maintain the same level of hygiene while traveling. When our previous Oral-B battery brush was finally dropped too many times, we replaced it with this model. We have been using this toothbrush on trips for the past two years, and it performs as expected based on the ten years we had the previous brush. We recommend using high quality batteries. We have not been disappointed and hope this brush lasts as long as its predecessor!

Check other reviews elsewhere.

I bought this product today at my local drugstore, although I have owned and been happy with other electric toothbrushes of the same brand. I chose it based on the dozens of 4+star reviews on amazon. Somehow the poor experiences had by some folks here are not normal. BTW, a user hint I saw on amazon makes much sense: apply a thin film of silicone (not petroleum-based!) plumber's grease to the rubber sealing ring inside the battery-compartment, to be doubly sure all moisture is locked out.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Great Toothbrush, Great Price, Poor Design

I cant stand the cheap elect toothbrushes for <$10, the slime build up in the space where the brush locks into the unit was enuf to make me ill. I can't afford expensive ones & the med priced ones have double brush heads. I've gag reflex & need smaller softer brush. I was so excited to find this brush <$20 w/the smaller softer brush!! This brush served me VERY well for > a year. The only problem w/this is getting the battery cover back on. What a pain!! Well, it finally died. I was going to buy another one, but I am now looking into the vitality because of the battery cover issue. I see that the vitality also has the smaller brush. Here's to hoping I love the vitality!!

No, I do not recommend this product.

The Battery Cap. Here's the trick

Replace w/ 2 new AA batteries. Put some Vaseline on rubber gasket. Pinch the two cap grabbers and slide the lid on. Scrub your teeth!

Oral B Complete Deep Clean

We got a double pack (for my wife and I) at Sam's Club with two battery powered brushes and three heads. It was easy to install the batteries (included) and they seem to work just fine. I will wait to see how the batteries hold up and how often we have to replace them. But overall, I'm very pleased with them.
