Connecting and charging
Your toothbrush has a waterproof handle, is electrically safe and
designed for use in the bathroom.
Plug the basic charger (f) or the assembled charging unit (see
picture B, page 2) into an electrical outlet and place the tooth-
brush handle (c) on the charging unit.
The green charge indicator light (d) flashes while the handle is
being charged. Once it is fully charged, the green charge indicator
light shines continuously for 5 seconds; then it turns off. A full
charge takes at least 17 hours and enables approximately one
week of regular brushing (twice a day, 2 minutes).
When the rechargeable battery is low, the red low charge indicator
light (e) starts flashing after turning off the toothbrush.
For everyday use, the toothbrush handle can be stored on
the charging unit to maintain it at full power. Overcharging is
impossible. However for environmental reasons, Oral-B recom-
mends to unplug the charging unit until the next recharge is
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.
Please note: If the charge indicator light is not flashing immediately,
continue charging. It will appear in 10–15 minutes.
For voltage specifications please refer to the bottom of the charging
Using your toothbrush
Wet brush head and apply toothpaste; you can use any kind of

Brush the gums as well as the teeth, first the outsides, then the
insides, finally the chewing surfaces (see picture 5, page 2). Do not
press too hard or scrub.
