When cost isn’t a factor and you want a top of the range electric toothbrush then maybe the Sonicare DiamondClean HX9332 by Philips is for you. It has been billed by Philips as ‘Ultimate cleaning. Radiant results.’
This specific incarnation, in common with most, is a rechargeable brush and comes with a charge indicator so you don’t get left with no power. You can charge the battery in two different and unique ways. Firstly, using some clever induction technology, the DiamondClean can charge just by resting it in the special tumbler that comes supplied. Alternatively when out and about you can use the charging case which can be plugged in to any USB port to keep the brush charged up. Battery duration should be 1 hour 24 mins which equates to almost 3 weeks of normal use before a recharge is needed however with the latest rechargeable batteries its said to be best to maintain them topped up. It requires 24 hours to completely charge the Philips.
Sonic brushes as with the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean HX9332 are the result of years of development of powered toothbrush design. Using high frequency pulsations dislodges the bacterial plaque, sweeping away more plaque than is feasible by using a conventional, oscillating / rotating electric brush. With a new head design featuring diamond shaped bristles, hence the name, and an increased bristle density, the cleaning results are even better than the current range of Sonicare toothbrushes. The heads are available in two sizes: standard and compact.
There’s a pressure sensor that warns when you’re pressing too robustly which could injure the gums as well as a two minute timer with 4 x 30 sec intervals so you dont have to guess how long you’ve been cleaning your teeth.
This toothbrush possesses a single speed and 5 cleaning modes i.e. polish, white, sensitive, gum care and clean. The display is illuminated showing the program when on and becomes invisible when not in use. For individuals with gum problems the ability to use a number of brushing modes and speeds may be a useful trait.
This model has a removable brushing head. 2 heads are provided in the package. This brush is good for taking with you on the move possessing a storage case that holds 2 heads as well as a charging USB port.
To summarise the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean HX9332 performs fantastically and is provided with a 24 month guarantee. This particular offering exhibits a better than average cleaning action. Also it possesses a battery life we view as outstanding although it is unexceptional with respect of the charging time. Wait until prices come down a bit if you want better value for money.
