Some of us have purchased the Sonicare battery-operated toothbrush and find that we don’t have access to the charger that came with it.
This can be frustrating but keep in mind there are some things you can do that won’t require you to purchase another charger. Here are a few of them to keep in mind so you won’t need to worry about not being able to charge your Sonicare toothbrush again.
When I bought a new toothbrush, I was amazed to use it because I was a user of a traditional toothbrush. I lost the charger however but I tried the following solutions.
How to charge your toothbrush using the power adapter?
Plugging your toothbrush into a power adapter is a great way to charge it quickly. It’s best to use an adapter that provides more power than what you’ll need, as it’ll save energy and time in charging your device.
Also, make sure you don’t leave your device plugged into an adapter overnight. Even though it won’t hurt your brush, it will stop charging after a certain amount of time. And finally, try not to handle your toothbrush roughly while it’s being charged.
Handle it gently and avoid dropping or banging it against anything else during transport. This can damage internal components, which could mean shorter battery life for you down the road.
How long does it take for my sonicare to charge?
Once you’ve connected your sonicare to your power source, it will take about 24 hours for it to completely charge. The sonicare charge indicator light will go off once it is fully charged.
The first use of your sonicare may take up to 30 minutes because of its full charge, but after that first time, you should notice that charging times decrease significantly.
If you have not used your sonicare for an extended period of time and it needs to be recharged again, plug it in overnight and let it charge until morning. If needed, repeat as necessary until your sonicare is fully charged.
Is there any faster way of charging?
Definitely not! There are a lot of ways to charge your electric toothbrush, but none of them are faster than charging it directly through an outlet. If you have a portable charger or power bank, there’s no reason to lug around a mess of cords when all you need is one.
However, if your power bank runs out of juice while you’re on-the-go, it will take longer to charge your electric toothbrush. But it will still work once it’s charged up again.
Your best bet is to grab another portable charger or power bank and just plug in both devices at once before you leave. Or even better? Keep an extra portable charger or two in different places around your house so that they’re always available when you need them.
How can I get a replacement charger cord?
Sometimes, it is better to contact Philips themselves to ask for a replacement. You can find your nearest Philips service center on their website. You can also contact them directly through their toll-free number.
They will be able to give you all of your options, including a shipping address where you can send your product so they can replace it at no cost.
Some websites may say that they offer replacement parts. But what they really mean is that if you buy from them they will give you a discount on purchasing another product.
They do this in order to replace one part of it. This is not what we are looking for because eventually all our parts wear out and we need replacements.
The same instruction is applicable to other chargers and devices like iPhone chargers, Android charger etc. It’s time to get a power bank for your mobile phone so that you can charge it wherever you are.
So, next time you are on an important trip or away from home, just make sure to carry a power bank with you and prevent any mishaps from happening.
