I've got Oral B Triumph 4000, bought for £42 at Amazon Black Friday sales. Highly recommended. Been using Oral B for 5 years now. The battery lasts for almost 3 years after which you have to buy a new one. My wife uses the Trizone 5000 which works differently and is good as well. Even Philips Flexicare (or Flexicare Plus) is very good. My in-laws use it. It is quieter than the Oral B, but has some reliability issues.

 

How long do you charge the Oral B 4000, BB?  It says a 40 minute charge in the book?  My other one I seem to have to charge for 24 hours!

RE: Good Electric Toothbrush

It takes a good few hours to charge. According to the manufacturer, inductive charging does not run the risk of overcharging and harming the battery, but I'm not taking any chances. When the light goes red, I leave it on overnight.
