Our Oral-B iO electric toothbrushes (as of version iO7) come with a multi-voltage charger and can be used in all regions. All other Oral-B electric toothbrushes come with a region specific battery chargers. To use them abroad you may need a voltage converter, plug adapter, or both as it depends on the country you are traveling to.
Follow these simple steps to find out if you can use your toothbrush abroad:
- Check the voltage printed on the base of your charger.
- Check the voltage of the country you are travelling to.
- Check the table below to find out if you need a voltage converter.
What is a plug adapter? A plug adapter allows a dual-voltage appliance from one country to be plugged into the wall outlet of another country. They do not convert electricity.
What is a voltage converter? A voltage converter is an electric power conversion device used to change the electrical output of a power source. You can find plug adapters & voltage converters at most electronics or travel stores. Oral-B does not make either.
Are you travelling from Europe to the USA/Canada? You need to use an Oral-B 110v charger which can be bought locally. Be aware that the plug style may be different in other countries. In case you visit a country that has a different plug style, like USA/Canada, we recommend purchasing a plug adapter.
Are you travelling from the USA/Canada to Europe? If your charger is a USA 110v you can purchase an Oral-B 220v charger which can be used overseas, instead of using a voltage converter. The charger will work in most European countries that have the two round plug ends. We also recommend purchasing a plug adapter in case you visit a country that has a different plug style such as the UK.
