Philips Sonicare 2 Series Electric Toothbrush Review
The Sonicare 2 Series isn't the tech-iest toothbrush, nor is it particularly hip-looking, but it's The Guide's choice for the money. It's rechargeable, has an ergonomic handle, and the 2-color battery indicator that lets you know when it's running low on power. The easy-start feature gently eases you into electric toothbrush life: it gradually increases power over the first 14 uses. Perfect for the electric newbie.
Sonic technology enables up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute! Much more effective than a manual toothbrush — according to Sonicare the 2 Series removes up to 6x more plaque, and we believe it. A timer encourages the 2 minutes of brushing recommended by dentists. This brush provided a great cleaning and left us feeling fresh.
The 2 Series is available in white, black, pink, and 3 shades of blue. Your box includes the base, toothbrush, manual, batteries, brush head, and travel cap. A 2 year manufacturer warranty is also part of the deal. When it arrives, you'll want to charge the brush for a full 24 hours before use (The battery light will let you know when it's fully charged and ready to go).
The Sonicare 2 Series is a great toothbrush for those who want to graduate from a manual toothbrush and improve their dental health, but aren't ready to plunk down the cash for a high-end model with more features. One downside? The replacement heads are on the pricey side.
