I have owned 2 Pursonic toothbrushes similar to this one (fool me twice). You won’t need 3 years’ worth of brush heads. The toothbrushes tend to fail right around 13 months. That said, $29 may be worth 13 months, and maybe you won’t run into any problems. Just my 2.22 yen.
@fondaporn@squishybrain Unfortunately if you sort the Amazon reviews by most recent/critical, there are quite a lot of repeat buyers who say the most recent units aren’t as reliable as the old ones, nor as well-machined where you insert the brush heads. Undecided whether it is worth a shot anyway. Apparently if you get lucky and receive one that isn’t a lemon they are excellent.
@fondaporn I bought one from meh 4 1/2 years ago and it’s going strong. My good fortune could be because I don’t store it on the charger. I only charge it when the battery starts to get low. Leaving it on the charger excessively probably creates more heat than the battery likes over time. I’m tempted to get another one just to get the stash of brushes.
@Blahbbs@fondaporn I got one from a IRK recently, and in my experience the brush can go weeks between charging. Initially I put it in the charger everynight, but then I realized that was overkill and only charge it when it stops buzzing.
@Num1Zero I don’t have one of these. So no comment on what meh is selling
But I have read complaints about head detachable models growing mold because of course the interface between the head and the brush will hold moisture it you leave it on all the time. I usually take mine off and let them dry between uses. But I don’t know if that’s really an issue. Sounds plausible under some conditions.
The top part is water tight obviously I bet you could stand it head side down with the head off in some vinegar over night and kill anything funky.
@Num1Zero so you love one that Always has a dead ass battery¿? Man, you guys are Always confusing me, or my brain’s battery may be brain dead, or I’m just getting too old for this s%#t!! I’m turning into Mr Keith Richards,…And I don’t even snort cocaine!! Zero!!
@Num1Zero@unksol, okay, I’ll try to explain what I meant [or posted]. Mr Num 1 Zero commented that his device smelled fishy [which I didn’t touch on], but after stating he Loved his toothbrush, he stated it’s battery is Always Dead. So, I thought that kinda sounded odd & this provoked my sarcastic response which I posted. If ya didn’t get the joke, it’s probably because it is not meant to be a joke per say, just a comment. But, if ya don’t grasp the sarcasm just, please, simply take it with a grain of salt [meaning simply dismiss the entire comment altogether].
I just wanna ask if anybody can tell me what they meant by stating, “What your dentist is wrong about: you shouldn’t have to pay a ton of money for one!” Is it just me who thinks this darn statement makes zero fn sense¿? …& BTW, I don’t have a dentist 'cause I have no teeth! Zero!!
@1DisabledWarVet I’m sure it’s simply stating that combined with the statement above it “getting an electric toothbrush is recommended by dentists but you don’t have to pay a lot.”
I.e. it’s not Oral-B or Philips Sonicare and your never going to see one of those goofy 4 out of 5 dentist recommend x commercials for pursonic but it does basically the same job without paying for the brand name.
@guybrush01 Since we’re (I’m) on the topic of Delaware, I thought I’d share this. This is my favorite thing about Delaware. Not so much because of the info contained in the song, or even because it referenced the state I was living in. It’s because my favorite band at the time basically improvised this for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
@guybrush01@Num1Zero Back in the day, I used to have my local CD place special order every new Moxy Fruvous CD from Canada. I got started when I heard King of Spain in passing while radio channel surfing on the way to work one morning. I think Bargainville ended up being my most played CD of all time… Never got to see them live though.
Currently using a Meh Pursonic that I bought 18 months ago, I charge when battery dies, about every 2 weeks at 2 uses/day—no issues. Lasting longer than my $120 Phillips and no $8 brushes!
Obviously YMMV, but no brainer for me.
Will probably pick this up for the back-up and brushes.
