Braun Oral B Electric Toothbrush

hawat, May 29, 12:57pm
Mine's about 4 years old and it cuts out after a while with the red light flashing. I think the battery doesn't hold a full charge anymore. Is it like a mobile phone battery after a while? Does it just give out? I'm wondering if you can replace the battery or something? Or do I just have to dump it and buy another. It cost $150 so I don't want to dump it if I can do something else. One good thing, the replacements don't seem to cost anywhere near as much now. Helpful tips anyone?

As far as I know handles are still available as a spare part, phone Lorraine on 09 4866555 tomorrow and ask her if she has one in stock or can get one in for you.

Yes. ALL batteries are like that, they have a lifespan. Whatever device it is in.

Mine has gradually got slower- think it is about 18yrs old so guess it’s had a good run. Just brought a new one and so much more efficient!

I saw the Oral B Pro 500 at a supermarket for $50 so not worth paying too much for parts.

You can unscrew the bottom using the holder as a grip and remove the old battery .New ones are available at Jaycar Ltd

That was my experience too. I think it's not just the batteries that give out, the whole thing seemed to be lose after a few years.

You can get Oral B toothbrush electric for 24.95 sometimes from Countdown.

HUH! I bought a new Oral B Pro 500 from Noel Leeming - cost $99? I have seen the ones they sell at Countdown and they aren't the same model. I decided to get the new one because my old one cost $150 5 years ago so I thought $100 was a good deal

I think it was on special when I saw it for $50. It is now back to $99?
