I am returning this item after finishing this review. The fact that any review gave this item more than 1 star completely destroys my faith in the reviews system. To be clear: this is *not* an electric toothbrush by any standard definition. This is a manual toothbrush with a vibrating timer in the handle. The vibration cause negligible head movement and results in absolutely no cleaning power. A true electric toothbrush vibrates the head and cleans your teeth by the power supplied by the brush. You can “ let the brush do the work”. This toothbrush cleans entirely by hand motion as with a purely manual brush. The only benefit of the vibrator is the timer letting you know when you have brushed long enough. If this were a $7 brush advertised as a manual with timer, then I could understand, but hyping this thing as an “ electric toothbrush” is unconscionable. Shame on Target.
I'm not really sure what all the hype is around this toothbrush. It's basically just a vibrating manual toothbrush. I don't think it will make my teeth any cleaner than a regular manual toothbrush. I probably won't repurchase this.
I use a Sonicare and bought the Quip as a smaller electric brush for travel. I wasn't expecting much for $25. First off, my teeth didn't look or feel clean after using. This brush is so low-powered that you could do better with a manual brush. Quip's motor creates 15,000 brush strokes per minute, while Sonicare makes 60,000 brush movements per minute. So quip is about 25% as good at cleaning, for only 50% the price. The shaft of this brush is about twice the size of the Sonicare. I never thought of brushing as something uncomfortable, even with a standard manual brush. I always wondered why people described two minutes of brushing as an "ordeal"; what's the big deal, its only 2 minutes? But with this brush, brushing is uncomfortable. I'll give it another week, but I'm not sure I'll use this brush at all. Additionally, the packaging was very bulky, which seems wasteful for such a small item.
This toothbrush was written up in several travel publications as great toothbrush hue travel. Before opening box, I read customer reviews & most customers said it wasn’t powerful enough & was basically a vibrating manual toothbrush. A friend showed me hers & I decided to go with a different battery operated electric toothbrush - Oral B
Bought this as a travel option versus taking a Sonicare toothbrush traveling.
It is horrible, a manual toothbrush would be better, it's irritating and the vibration is small- does nothing. Would not suggest, get a manual toothbrush with a cute case and call it day!
Two stars and I'll tell you guys why, I bought this toothbrush and I was really happy with it at first. It's the most I've ever spent on toothbrush before but I believed in its power and like I said at I first it was going well. I am writing this review maybe like 6 months after I purchased it and it is officially not working for me anymore, water slipped in and now the bottom has rusted, so the connection between the motor and the battery no longer works. This is upsetting to me because I spent $25 on this toothbrush the most I've ever spent before, thinking that it was going to last me a lifetime and that all I was going to have to worry about was replacing the head. I'm upset to say that's not the case. While I enjoyed the fact that it had a timer on it, when it would tell you to switch sides, if I'm going to spend this much on a toothbrush I want it to be for life, or at least last me longer than 6 freaking months.
