The Pulsonic from Oral-B is a high class powered toothbrush that comes with excellent functions accompanied by a higher price tag.
With this specific model the cleaning head is changeable. This one includes 2 brushing heads. It docks on a charging cradle although it is not the most suitable option for taking on the move because it has no storage case for brush heads or holiday travel case.
There is a two minute timer with four – 30 sec periods one for each quadrant which is the recommended brushing duration as well as a pressure sensor which informs you if you are brushing too vigorously which could injure the gums.
This offering utilises a sonic action, with 31000 brush strokes per sec. Using high energy vibrations agitates the oral plaque causing micro organisms therefore a greater amount of plaque is eliminated in comparison to other electric toothbrushes.
The Pulsonic, as is typical, is a rechargeable model but it hasn’t got a charge gauge so you may get caught out with a flat battery. It takes 18 hours to completely recharge this model. Assuming twice daily usage the battery life is 48 minutes (equivalent to nearly 2 weeks) until a charge is required although its probably best to maintain the batteries topped up after every use.
There’s a single speed and 3 cleaning modes i.e. massage, sensitive and daily clean. The facility of a selection of speeds and modes could be of benefit if there are different people will have use of the toothbrush. If that is the situation each user should use a different brush-head.
All in all the Oral-B Pulsonic is an exceedingly able powered brush and it comes supplied provided with a guarantee for 24 months. It is above average in terms of the recharge time in addition it possesses a cleaning action we consider as better than most. But it is average with respect of it’s charge capacity.
