The Vitality Sonic by Oral-B is a ‘no frills’ powered toothbrush, giving a reduced price tag with the sacrifice of more functions.
|Cleaning Action||sonic – 20,000 cycles / min|
|Modes / Speeds||1 mode / 1 speed|
|Power Source||rechargeable battery|
|Battery Life||up to 87 min per charge|
|Charge Time||24 hrs|
You get only a single speed and one cleaning mode. Having a choice of brushing modes and speeds can be useful in situations where more than one individual have use of the toothbrush. Where this is the situation a different brush head must be used for every user.
It has no pressure indicator a component which would be desirable but there is a 2 minute timer which is the recommended brushing time.
As with most electric toothbrushes the Vitality Sonic is rechargeable however it is not equipped with a charge indicator so you may be lumbered with a flat battery. The time taken to fully charge this brush is 16 hours. Staying with twice daily usage the battery should last 87 mins, equivalent to 21 days, before a recharge is required however its said to be advisable to maintain the batteries charged between each brushing.
Sonic action brushes, as in the Vitality Sonic are at the forefront of powered toothbrush design. The sonic pulsations disrupts the oral plaque causing micro organisms allowing a greater amount of plaque to be cleared away when compared with a conventional electric toothbrush.
This Oral-B enjoys a replaceable brush head. Two heads are provided when you buy this model. It is provided with a stand which doubles up as a charger although this model has no storage cap or brush head case, consequently it is not the best choice for using on holiday.
A few of the important features concerning the Oral-B Vitality Sonic are that it is reasonably rapid to charge plus it has an outstanding battery capacity. However it is poor with respect of brushing action which must be the key element of any powered brush. Ultimately this example is pretty unexceptional but good value and is provided with a guarantee for 24 months.
