Where can I charge my electric toothbrush?
In most cases, an electric toothbrush is charged by sitting the brush handle onto a charging stand. The charging stand will normally come provided with the brush. It will be a round or square shaped plate in most cases with a prong (protuberance) that sits upright in the centre.
Should I keep my electric toothbrush on the charger?
It is perfectly safe to disconnect the power and leave the brush fitted to the charging stand. Doing so will keep the toothbrush upright and reduce any potential risk and damage to the toothbrush. Leaving the power cable connected is generally fine also, but it is not necessarily required.
Can you plug electric toothbrush into shaver socket?
In short, yes it will work but the socket may eventually fail. Not just toothbrushes which often take 24 hours to charge or are designed to be permanently trickle charging but rechargeable shavers too.
Are all electric toothbrush chargers the same?
The type number of your toothbrush and the type number of your charger are independent and do not necessarily match. Confusingly, they used to match to some extent but in recent years they have diverged and are now independent of each other.
Can you have a USB socket in a bathroom?
The use or installation of sockets is not allowed in bathrooms or shower rooms unless they can be fitted at least 3 metres from the bath or shower. If you do have an electrical shaver point installed, it must be a safe distance (in metres) from the bath or shower to avoid splashes.
How long should I charge electric toothbrush?
Depending on which model you have, it should take between 14 and 22 hours to fully charge the brush, and then the juice should last for between 5 and 12 days of brushes (when brushing twice a day, for 2 minutes each time).
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.
How do you get black mold off an electric toothbrush?
Make either a peroxide, vinegar, or bleach solution and submerge your brush head in it. This can not only remove and kill mold, but also any lingering bacteria that could infect your oral cavity. Wipe the base of the head before soaking it to help the solution more effectively remove other gunk.
Can you overcharge electric toothbrush?
Yes! Yes it will affect the overall battery life. Just like any battery it is best to let it drain before charging.
Can I soak my electric toothbrush?
For the most part, you can sanitize an electric toothbrush head the same way that you disinfect a regular toothbrush. If your electric toothbrush is the kind that doesn’t detach from the base, just use warm water or a quick mouthwash soak, and store it in a clean, dry place.
How do I stop my electric toothbrush from going Mouldy?

Why do bathroom sockets say shavers only?
Usually, outlets that read “Shavers Only” means that there is not much electricity running to that outlet – enough for a shaver, and to recharge stuff, but usually anything drawing more electricity will cause the breaker to fail/blow as they are usually running low amps/watts.
Can I charge my phone in a shaver socket?
The answer is “Yes”. Phone chargers use even less power than the typical shaver – even the turbo-charging ones. Hence no problem there.
Can you plug a hair dryer into a shaver socket?
It is perfectly legal. Not without applying for Building Regulations approval first. With modern wiring on the lighting circuit it should be fine to replace a shaver socket with a custom hard-wired hairdryer.
