Does my Oral-B rechargeable electric toothbrush come with a charge indicator? 

Most Oral-B handles have a charging indicator to let you know its battery status or if a charge is needed. However—for optimal performance you can keep your Vitality brush always on the connected charger when not in use. To maintain the maximum capacity of the rechargeable battery, unplug the charging unit and fully discharge the handle with regular use at least every 6 months.   

For brushes in our Pro series, you will notice a battery charging and low battery status indicator directly on the handle. If you have a Genius or iO handle, you will notice a charging indicator as well as a battery status symbol. 

How do I know if my brush is fully charged?  

Depending on the series, your Oral-B rechargeable toothbrush may feature charging indicators and different battery symbols to inform you when your brush is charging, completed charging, and the status of your handle’s battery. 

What is the charge time for my specific Oral-B rechargeable electric toothbrush and how long does the battery last when fully charged?
