@Stallion These used to be super-super expensive. I remember just a few replacement brushes seemed to coast about $25.
The price is so good, I might buy another one to put beside the first one I don’t use.
It’s just me being lazy and using the ‘manual’ one from the Dentist.
I just haven’t convinced myself on the goth black one yet…it’s pretty cool sorta.
I got my kids these brushes sometime in the past. They’re holding up well. My kids still have some of their teeth. The batteries somehow seem to still function, even though I irresponsibly fail to store them in the refrigerator. I endorse this product.
@PlacidPenguin You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - the most famous of which is “never get involved in a land war in Asia” - but only slightly less well-known is this: never assume that each purchaser only buys one item. A certain variable (but likely predictable based upon prior purchase patterns) distribution of buyers, will purchase more than one. This will affect the calculations significantly. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha…
@PlacidPenguin Is it not up to each and every sentient being to determine when and under what condition that being will store his/her/its batteries in the refrigerator? Do I not speak a universal truth?
@PlacidPenguin Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean that my batteries aren’t really out to get me. I think an abundance of caution is the only prudent measure at this point. You have awakened me to a reality that I can no longer ignore. Vigilance!
@HELLOALICE Could be a different set of packaging, like the number of replacement brush heads? I was wary before I bought it last time it came up, but I looked up other models and aggregated the reviews.
And since I did buy it last time I can say I do really like it, well worth the price.
This is definitely a good toothbrush. Got it maybe two years ago and at that time it was called junt “Sonic”, so this must be a newer model. The best thing about it besides being a damn good toothbrush is that the charge lasts over three weeks making it great for traveling without a charger.
The one that I’ve had around a year has terrible battery life. Worked great at first. Went about three weeks without a charge. Now I have to charge it every couple of days. My bathroom is small so I don’t really have room for the charging base, otherwise I’d probably just leave it on there all the time.
The brush heads are not that easy to remove so I don’t bother with the uv.
@RiotDemon Refrigerator meme aside, Lithium ion batteries should never be allowed to go completely dead. Good news, most devices will stop the battery from draining completely but if you drained a battery then stored it dead close to dead, you probably killed the battery.
This seems to be a good price for a generic, but my sonicare won’t die… even when constantly letting it go weeks between charges… it is like the engineers said “lets not skimp on the vehicle onto which people attach our $5 brush heads”.
