What type of battery is in an Oral-B toothbrush?
Like electric toothbrushes, battery-powered toothbrushes are sometimes simply called “power toothbrushes” due to their use of a AA battery.
Why did my Oral B toothbrush stopped 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.
Why did my electric toothbrush stop working?
There are two main causes for charging faults inside the toothbrush, either damaged components for example from being dropped or from water seeping inside, or a failed battery.
How long should electric toothbrush last?
The average life span of an electric toothbrush is around 5 years. Manufacturers normally offer a 2 year warranty should the brush fail sooner. But some brushes will last a lot longer — we know of people still using electric toothbrushes that are 10 years old.
How do I dispose of an electric toothbrush?
Dispose of the brush (handle only) It should, therefore, be recycled. Believe it or not, parts of the electric toothbrush battery can be reused for other products or industries. Plastic parts such as the body of the brush handle itself will likely end up in landfill at the end of the recycling process.

How long does an Oral-B toothbrush battery last?
How long do batteries in an Oral-B battery powered toothbrush last? Oral-B toothbrushes that use alkaline batteries, such as our Pro-Health Clinical (Type 3744) brush, should last between 4 and 6 weeks on fresh batteries. Our brushes are designed to be used for two minutes, twice a day.
Should you leave your electric toothbrush on the charger all the time?
If this is your first time using the product, you should fully charge the battery before using, which can take up to 16 hours. Once your handle is fully charged, continue using your electric toothbrush until no charge is left. This will help your battery perform at its best longer.
How do I know if my electric toothbrush is charging?
The best way to check whether the Oral-B Vitality brush is charging is to pick the toothbrush up off the charger after 30 minutes and switch it on. If it comes to life, you know it’s charging. Switch it back off and leave it on the charging stand for the full 16 hours it needs to complete a full charge.
What is the red flashing light on Oral-B electric toothbrush?
If the red light is nearer the bottom of the handle, this could be the low battery indicator (PRO 1000 and above). This lights up when it’s time to charge your toothbrush, as there is only juice left in the battery for 1 or 2 more brushes.
