How long does it take to charge an oral b toothbrush?
July 12, 2019
One of the only cases where you feel like you’d rather get a regular toothbrush is when the charge of the electric toothbrush ends. However, once you’re used to the comfort of an electric toothbrush, it is pretty much impossible to go back, isn’t it?
So, it’s important to figure out when the battery is about to end so that you can charge it and don’t run out of battery when you’re actually brushing your teeth.
So, how long does it take to charge an oral b toothbrush? Well, depending on the exact model, this can be anywhere between 12-22 hours. This mostly depends on the battery size, although the rate of consumption also plays a role. Naturally, the duration it’s going to last is based on the assumption that someone would use it for two minutes twice a day.

How long does it take to charge an oral b toothbrush?
Oral B toothbrushes usually don’t take too long to charge. Again, they also retain charge for a pretty long time, which makes them an efficient choice when it comes to charging as well as use.
However, they might take anywhere between 12-22 hours depending on the exact model that you’re planning to use. Let’s break it down model wise below:
- 8000 and 9000 and 1500: 8000 and 9000 and 1500 are the models that require the lowest amount of time to charge- 12 hours. They are fully charged in that time and last for up to 12 days, assuming an average amount of use.
- Vitality and 500: The vitality and 500 models take about 16 hours to charge and the charge lasts for about 5 days.
- The rest of the models: The rest of the models such as the 1000, 2000, 3000 etc take 22 hours to charge and can last from anywhere between 7 days (as is the case with the 3000 model) up to 2 weeks.
So, once again, while that is the specific range for how long you might want to connect your electric toothbrush to the socket, the exact duration would depend on your model.
What role does the red light play?
Now, you might have heard about the red light when it comes to the oral B electric toothbrushes. This red light is actually the most important thing out there to know when your toothbrush battery is about to run out.
This red light is actually a low battery indicator that turns on when your have one or two brushes worth of battery left. This means that it is really important to put the electric toothbrush on charge now.
