[Costco] 2-pack of Oral-B Professional Clean 4000 Rechargeable Toothbrush - back to $99 in store $30 off

May be useful to some folks. I had been waiting on this for awhile and it's now back down to $99 in store, $104 online.

Basically the lowest it seems to go these days. Pretty decent deal for 2 of them - supposed to be the higher end model too.

This is the one with blue tooth and can link with your phone in case anyone cares.

Edit - also comes with 3 brush heads so that's about $10-15 there too.

They just really couldn't stick a 4th brush head in there, could they?

I saw the 9-pack of the brush-heads on sale in-store too, though I forget the price.

Hahaha I agree, bought this 2pack set a few days ago. "BLUETOOTH" but even # heads is hard? Hahaha.

Btw, I tried the long brush heads attachments off Amazon for the OralB Costco handle last year and I never went back to those round small heads.

They are very costly though, 3x for $18-20 whereas round small heads are 9x $40 from Costco? I don't know what I'm doing but the bigger brush heads found them really nice

The sonic care is faster and feels smaller. These brushes are bigger. They are both comparable cleaning wise.

Is there an equivalent version that is operated by batteries we can change?

We have gone through two of these, and while they do last several years it also seems so wasteful to throw them out when the battery goes bad. Thought maybe if there is an equivalent that takes AA's and provides the same level of clean it might feel less wasteful in the long run.

I find the cheap Oral-Bs that uses batteries wear out much faster. I used to buy those and they wouldn't even last a year. These rechargeable ones last for 5-10 years from my experience.

I have tried to replace the rechargeable batteries, but it requires desoldering and you'll likely be breaking any waterproof seals.

Opposite opinion here, I hate the big ones. I felt that they were too big and didn’t clean as well. I’ve tried out all of the heads over the past 8 years or so and my favourite is the floss one (it pretty much flosses your teeth as you brush, it’s amazing), then my second favourite is the cross action one.

On eBay I've seen a place in the UK that rebuilds the OralB brand with new batteries. I haven't tried them or have a direct link but just something to think about. I was thinking of sending one of my older units to see how it comes out.

I had the same issues with Sonic. Kept having to get them replaced. PITA. Had an Oral B for 10+ years before those with no issues. Buy $10 battery powered Oral Bs from Amazon. You don't need to plug them in and have a dock that can get nasty if not cleaned often. (Small kids esp.). They use 2 AA batteries.

I saw that - but being that I have no knowledge of soldering it was an instant no for me. By the time I get someone to do it for me it just isn't worth it for the $50/brush cost for a new one.

I am going to have to see if I saved a copy of the receipt, Perhaps I have got a lot of life out of the toothbrush and it's just my imagination that it has only been a couple years. It just seems wasteful to toss it when the battery is bad, knowing that the motor and such are all fine. I try to reduce waste and it just feels wasteful, so I thought if I could switch to use that uses actual replaceable batteries I might feel better about my choice.

I feel there are much more wasteful products in your daily life to worry about than a toothbrush that you replace every 5-10 years. Even rechargeable AA batteries won't last that long if you use the toothbrush twice a day.

You're not supposed to "throw them out". You're supposed to pull the battery out following the instructions and deposit the battery at your local HHW or other places that accept batteries for recycling.

Also you can replace the rechargeable cells in these. There's a few sites out there that sell replacements and provide instructions on replacement and resealing.

Anyway the old NiCd ones last about 10yrs on average, the NiMH ones should probably last just as long; the Li-Ion ones probably not as long though. The only ones that would be mostly safe to "throw out" would be the NiMH ones--not as harmful to the environment (and people) as cadmium or lithium.
