Why has my electric toothbrush stopped charging?
Make sure you are not charging the toothbrush on a metal surface. The metal can interfere with the charging process. If they’re switched on while charging, they won’t charge correctly. The best thing to do is to put it on the charger for 30 minutes or so, and then try to switch it on.
Can I replace the battery in my Oral-B electric toothbrush?

How often should I charge my Oral-B toothbrush?
Depending on your toothbrush model it should take between 14 and 22 hours to fully recharge – personally, I leave it charging for a full day, just to make sure. You can do this to revive your existing brush, but Oral-B recommend doing this, as a matter of course, at least every six months.
Can you plug electric toothbrush into normal socket?
No, not quite. A 2 pin plug found on an electric toothbrush or shaver has pins that are closer together than a traditional 2 pin EU mains adapter. This means that appliances that would normally connect to a shaver socket cannot and should not be connected to mains power in Europe.
What is the black stuff in my electric toothbrush?
It’s mold, which likes to grow where there is standing moisture. After you clean the toothbrush container, you can help to slow down the reformation of mold by doing a more vigorous job of shaking off your toothbrush before putting it in the holder.
