    Rechargeable vs battery

    I have a similar, though different brand, toothbrush. I also had a rechargeable beard trimmer. Both of these units self destructed due to the batteries becoming unchargeable. I replaced my beard trimmer with one that uses AA batteries, which could be rechargeable. Why the toothbrush makers don't have some similar units is beyond me.

    I have looked for, but have not found any 'sonic' type electric toothbrushes (I do like their performance) that use replaceable batteries, rechargeable or not. $50-$90 is too much to to discard such a unit when normal toothbrushes go for around $2-$3 apiece. The additional capability (which I like) does not justify the replacement cost.

      Re: Rechargeable vs battery

      Ah, yet more instances of a proprietary rechargeable battery being used as a wonderfully effective vendor-lock-in subterfuge--it’s not just Apple. I was talking to the builders who were renovating my bathroom a few years ago, and the same thing happens with their power tools.

    A product that is most evil in its treatment of plaque!

    If you divide 40,000 by 60 and only take whole numbers as your answer, this thing produces 666 brush strokes per second.
