    Does anyone out there know if Sonicare makes a dual voltage model
    (110v-220v) toothbrush? I've tried to get in touch with them (through
    their inane/infuriating website) only to find after filling in tons of
    "registration" info to ask a simple question, they then emailed a link
    with their response...but there's a problem with the site and it won't
    allow me to enter and retrieve the message. At least they make
    toothbrushes that are better than their attempts at customer
    "service"!

    Any info on model(s) that offer this would be gratefully recieved.

    Cheers,
    G

    Sonicare is very prevalent in North America with a 110v base charger,
    as well as the UK - where it is (no surprise) supplied with a 220v
    base charger.
    I'm hoping for those who travel a lot there's a dual voltage offering
    available (kind of like most electrical shavers, these days).

  4. Today's modern power adapters are dual voltage just like in laptops
    and electric shavers. I would check the box to make sure. If not you
    may need a transformer.

    Alexander,

    Quite right. Have looked at a couple models which are clearly marked
    as being 110v. Which is what prompted me to ask if anyone is aware of
    any models that are 100v-220v (as getting a response from Sonicare
    directly is impossible).

    G
    PS - also am not interested in buying a model that 110v *or* 220v and
    using a transformer.

    All this talk about Sonicares, voltage and batteries makes me laugh.
    For years I have been connecting a potato(e) to my Extra-Mercury(tm)
    fillings with two wires with my key ring attached. The resulting
    "Electro-Magnetic Hg-P'toe-Force(c)" vibrates the keys at the supersonic
    level. This of course removes more plaque than any Sonicare ever could.
    And for FREE! (except for the cost of the potato(e).

  10. Interesting, then a small transformer is the way to go.

    Personally, I'm not a big fan of their toothbrush.It's just a
    toothbrush attached to a vibrator. Especially when they are being so
    tight with giving them to dentist and staff to try.
    Some dentists get it for free others don't and the reps lie to the
    staff telling them that they do not give them out and they can buy
    them for $50.

  12. ANY dentist office should be able to get a "demo" model (actually as many as
    you request). These are the real thing and can be used as such. You just
    gotta take the plastic "stand" off of the charger and remove the little
    plastic leash that holds the brush onto the stand.

  15. I wasn't talking about the demo model that is something in itself.
    They were giving the actual product in the box.

    Take the digital, always good for extortion.

    From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) :

    Blackmail \Black"mail`\, n. [Black + mail a piece of money.]
    1. A certain rate of money, corn, cattle, or other thing,
    anciently paid, in the north of England and south of
    Scotland, to certain men who were allied to robbers, or
    moss troopers, to be by them protected from pillage. --Sir
    W. Scott.

    Carry on,
