The toothbrush has a 2-minute timer to allow you to keep track of brushing time so you always brush for the recommended time. One charge of the brush give you up to two weeks of power making this a great travel companion because you won't have to carry your charger with you.
What Reviewers Say:
If you're like most users, you're going to love this. Here's what Amazon reviewers have to say:
- This EasyClean model is the only model I recommend. Anything more expensive does not really provide anything extra (despite what the marketing department wants you to believe), and anything less expensive uses the old brush heads.
- I have used Philips Sonicare elect. toothbrushes for years. This is the first toothbrush of theirs that solves my problems with the other designs. This EasyClean 500 Series has a slim compact handle--slimmer than any of the others I have used. Love it! And the best design change they made is the easy-to-clean attachment of the brush head to the handle. The brush head has a very small attachment connecting mechanism: simply a very small recess in the bottom of the brush head component that pushes onto a slim metal rod in the handle. Finally no cavities to harbor mold, grim, old toothpaste, saliva, etc. I was shocked and disgusted when I pried open the insides of my old brush head bottom--I had to use a screw driver to pop off a plastic disc up inside the old brush attachment. They should have made these changes years ago!
- Had an old Sonicare that was always getting gunked up. In fact, I had bought the old style Sonicare toothbrushes for the entire family but it was too disgusting to keep them clean as they collected water within the handle that turned moldy - eek. This EasyClean toothbrush is sleeker and doesn't have the crevices to collect water. It is clean and healthier for everyone. Love the travel cases, too - very handy.
