I want to get a rechargeable (NOT battery) toothbrush for my DD's birthday next wednesday. DP and I both have Braun OralB rechargeables, but I don't want to spend a fortune on DD's. Ideally I would like one with a timer so she learns how long she should clean her teeth for.
She currently has a batterone from Sainsbury's, but the connections in it are not too good it keeps stopping. We need to bang the bottom to get it going again.
There is quite a range of Oral B ones and they start at quite a reasonable price and are often on special offer in Boots. Our dcs have Oral Bs which cost a lot less than our own ones but seem pretty similar. They don't always remember to charge them up though!
Does your dentist sell toothbrushes? Ours sells toothpastes/toothbrushes/floss etc at lower prices than the shops, so it might be worth trying that avenue.
Well I know you said you didn't want a battery one, but if you get the new Duracell digital camera batteries and put them they last a treat. Or alternatively buy rechargeable batteries and go that route. That's what we do. We all have Oral B brushes in this family.
