This shouldn't be, since the new lithium double As I put in are 1.5V, just like the old batteries were, but... I feels like I got a turbo toothbrush now.

My whole mouth is still vibrating from the before-bed brushing. Not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing.

Oh well... keeping all of your tooth enamel is overrated anyways.

How did they catch a Yeti and teach him to brush his teeth?

And why?

I switched from the replaceable battery Spinbrush to the rechargeable Spinbrush. No replacing batteries, no leaking into battery compartment. Always plenty of juice. It recharges using the magnetic charging principle, pretty cool for a toothbrush. BTW, If yer mouf is vibrating you're brushing WAY too hard. Yer enamel won't suffer but yer gums will. System in 10 years.

My four-year old Sonicare finally bit the dust this week -- just stopped taking a charge.

I guess it did have a non-replaceable NiCd battery.

Do the "spinning" brushes really help much? Teh GF is using that one, but, they have a 2-pack of Sonicare at costco for a decent price.

It's the only one a real live dentist ever told me to buy, but, maybe they are paid to say that.

I've had two Crest rechargeable Spinbrushes. The last one lasted me 3 years and I've been using my second one for about a year. They each cost $15, plus the cost of new brushes when they wear out. My dentist said they're good, but just like any electric toothbrush, don't brush hard. Let the brush do the work.

I think I got close to 6 years on my first sonicare and just got a replacement for my birfday.

Dentist is always a breeze, no cavities ever. Same experience with the dentist, this is the brush they recommended..

Maybe you weren't using a toothbrush.

The batteries don't run out on my manual toothbrush.
2 years after switching to a sonicare my dentist noticed significantly reduced plaque buildup on my molars, maybe I was doing it wrong?

My dentist routinely high-fives me for using Sonicare.

I love my Sonicare - only have to brush every other day!!! The non-soap users should appreciate that!
