About this deal

You too get a visible pressure sensor, but this now lights up not only red to alert you when you brush too hard, but green too, to show you are using just the right amount of pressure. Instead, the protuberance on the top of the stand will fit into the recess on the base of the iO5’s handle and will recharge the brush in up to 16 hours.

Added value is always appreciated. Bit miffed however that Oral-B does not offer the iO9 in violet or the iO8 in pink. These things exist at price points that should include all of the colors Oral-B has being available for each of their models. She’d enjoy and love a violet iO8, but it’s the rose of the iO9 that will get a sparkle going in her eye. Cleaning performance is comparable between each with limited evidence to really suggest one is better than another. You’re certainly not going to get significantly whiter teeth just by using whitening mode. Cleaning mode icons take some getting used to My experience and my dentist said don’t be to tight with the toothpaste, put plenty (many don’t put enough).As an oscillating and rotating brush, it does still feel different in use to a sonic toothbrush, it doesn’t feel as light and gentle as they often do. The iO5 is water resistant so can be rinsed under a tap The brush head is bigger than what you might be used to Brush like a Pro. The Oral-B iO Series 5 Electric Toothbrush combines powerful, but gentle micro-vibrations with Oral-B’s dentist-inspired round brush head and advanced iO Technology that delivers 100% cleaner teeth and healthier gums in just 1 week versus a regular manual toothbrush. Plus, state-of-the-art features including A.I. position detection to recognize your brushing style and guide you to better brushing in real-time. You can change the cleaning mode before turning the brush on, or when in use. You need to press the lower of the 2 buttons on the handle to select each mode. Our most recent addition is the Mode Electric Toothbrush, perfect for people looking for something simple. No companion apps, no multiple heads: just a simple sonic toothbrush, done well. The round charger has no protuberance. It does have a 2 pin power adapter, and supports 100-240v. It takes up to 3 hours to recharge the brushes on this stand.

The brush comes with a travel case and AAA batteries. its biggest downside is the need to replace batteries, along with brush heads, every few months, which isn't particularly eco-friendly nor cost-effective in the long run. However, each replacement will last at least three months, as the brush isn't particularly power-hungry.If you're looking to travel frequently and want a spare toothbrush, or you're looking for an affordable way to start smart-cleaning, this is the brush for you. The iO5 has this, but its sensor is better than most, altering you when you are using insufficient and the correct pressure, rather than just when you are using too much, like most sensors.Brushing for the recommended minimum of 2 minutes twice a day achieves maximum plaque removal. Yet many people brush for as little as 45-70 seconds per day.

This is because you have an onscreen timer to guide you. The idea is you spend 20 seconds per zone, to realize the even clean. Once you're done, turn off the brush and you'll be given a rating for your efforts. It doesn't matter if you end up taking longer than the typical two minutes to complete a thorough clean, but you'll lose points for not completing every part of your mouth, rushing, or applying excessive pressure. It's an impressive system, and will help you get a better idea of how good brushing should feel so you can adapt your habits on days when you choose not to use the app. Assuming you want something a bit more capable, then the iO6 represents the best value option. It has many of the most desirable features of the iO range, including the in-handle display. But, it remains relatively affordable and you get the best of both worlds, so to speak. You can change the cleaning mode prior to turning the brush on, or when in use. You need to press the lower of the 2 buttons on the handle to select each mode.

You will see that the more feature-rich, and typically more expensive models are shown on the right, compared to the more cost effective models on the left.
