Why does my Oral-B electric toothbrush turn on by itself?

Can you replace battery in Oral-B electric toothbrush?

Why is my Oral-B electric toothbrush not working?
The best thing to do is to put it on the charger for 30 minutes or so, and then try to switch it on. It should blink green during charging. Note that this can take up to 15 minutes to start happening if the toothbrush was entirely drained of battery during brushing. When charging is complete, the blinking should stop.
