To get the most out of your Oral-B electric toothbrush, it’s important to fully charge it before your first use. Depending on the type of rechargeable electric toothbrush you have, it will take anywhere between 12 to 18 hours* on average to fully charge your brush. Be sure to follow the usage instructions that came with your handle to maximize run-time.
*Applicable to all Oral-B handles except the Oral-B iO 7, 8 and 9 Series which require an average charge time of just 3 hours.
Most Oral-B handles have a charging indicator to let you know its battery status or if a charge is needed. However, the Vitality does not—for optimal performance, keep your Vitality brush on its connected charger when not in use. To maintain the maximum capacity of the rechargeable battery, unplug the charging unit and fully discharge your handle every 6 months.
For brushes in our Pro series, you will notice a battery charging and low battery status indicator directly on the handle. If you have a Genius or iO handle, you will notice a charging indicator as well as a battery status symbol.
If you share your Oral-B handle with one or more people, brush more than twice a day, or brush for longer than 2 minutes a session, you may need to charge your handle more frequently.
Depending on the series, your Oral-B rechargeable toothbrush may feature charging indicators and different battery symbols to inform you when your brush is charging, when it’s at full charge, and the status of your handle's battery.
Depending on the type of rechargeable electric toothbrush you have, it will take anywhere between 12 to 18 hours on average to fully charge your brush. If you have an Oral-B iO 7, 8 or 9 Series Toothbrush, the full charge time is only about 3 hours! How long a fully-charged battery will last depends on how often and how long you brush. The Oral-B Genius will last more than two weeks when brushing 2 minutes twice per day. Be sure to fully charge your Oral-B rechargeable electric toothbrush to maximize battery life.
The Oral-B iO series features the latest in brushing technology to deliver a superior clean*. The series combines Oral-B's iconic dentist-inspired round brush head with powerful, but gentle micro-vibrations for a professional clean feeling every day.
