My previous Braun tootherbrush lasted 12 years and I only binned it because the rubber grip had rotted out and gone all sticky. Naturally I went for another Braun product. The new brush is fine, with a small charger. It uses the same heads as the more expensive models. I don't need blutooth connectivity in my toothbrush - I just want it to clean my teeth, which this does very well. Ordered it one evening, it was delivered the next day. These guys under-promise and over-deliver. Very impressed.
