Braun toothbrush recovery Review by Colin
Fitted this battery to a Braun Oral B electric toothbrush. Wasn't too difficult and made it as good as new. All for a couple of pounds. (Posted on 20/02/2016)
Philips Sonicare Elite Toothbrush battery replacement Review by Mike
Used this to replace the dead battery in a Philips Sonicare Elite Toothbrush - followed this youtube vid to learn how to do it -
The tags on the replacement battery need trimmed to fit into the circuit board, but once soldered in place the battery does a fantastic job. A point of caution though - the original battery is only 1200mAh, and this one is way more powerful at 2000mAh. This has two effects - it drives the motor of the toothbrush MUCH better, and as a result it feels like the brush is working much better than ever before. It does however seem to confuse the little LED charging indicators - they never indicate that the battery is full - although after charging for a few hours the toothbrush runs for weeks without needing another charge. How the toothbrush handles this additional power in the long term remains to be seen - will the higher power shorten the life of the 'motor'...? As the motor is actually some kind of vibrating electro magnet I rather doubt it will, unless the power being drawn perhaps shortens the life of a resistor or other component.... still, considering the stupid high cost of trying to get the recommended battery from the US..

Excellent Review by Remo
The battery is used to replace the original in my Oral B Triumph. 10 days after the initial charge and the toothbrush still shows 50% on the charge indicator. The toothbrush is cleaning better than it had prior to changing the battery. The battery is straight forward to fit - I only wish I'd replaced it a year ago!
I can't comment on the lifetime of the battery but at a cost of £2, I'd be happy to replace it regularly. (Posted on 27/05/2015)
Great service Review by Kevin
These are brilliant, holding their charge on my electric toothbrush for over a week with both myself and my wife using them twice a day (Posted on 11/05/2015)
Very capable replacement for Oral-B triumph Review by fidelity
As the other reviews have mentioned, this battery is probably the best replacement for the original battery in terms of performance. The solder tags need some cutting and adjusting, but the battery fit is otherwise perfect.
I have taken notes of the running time since the installation, and after several charges the running time in 1-2 times/day use amounts to over 60 minutes. Longest running time has been 64 minutes. In more active use the running time is longer because there is shorter time for self discharging.
In contrast, the just over year old original battery managed a dismal 25 minutes, running out suddenly during the 11th use. The new battery manages 23-25 uses, and the performance stays good considerably longer than with the original even when it was new. (Posted on 24/03/2015)
Oral B Triumph replacement battery Review by Alex
Bought this battery on recommendation from
Battery fit is perfect for the original, the solder tags are center mounted and quite wide. Needs a bit of cutting down to fit through the holes on the board. The negative solder point is off-centre from the battery tag, cutting the down the tag on the right side without bending the tag works fine. Requires some soldering skills to get the original tags off but pretty straight forward soldering the new ones back on.
Only been using it for about a week now and still holding 50% charge! So far so good. (Posted on 23/03/2015)
Braun/Oral B replacement battery Review by Billericay Bruce
I bought two of these batteries to revive the toothbrushes my wife and I have had for several years. Installation was tricky but possible following one of the many videos on YouTube:
Fitting does require reasonably good soldering skills. A solder sucker helps. Now the job is done, the toothbrushes whir away better than they have for ages and the charge lasts well. Long-term, I don't know but I'm glad I didn't chuck the toothbrushes and bought thees batteries instead. Recommended. (Posted on 10/03/2015)
Recommendable Review by Ron H

Excellent Oral-B Triumph Battery Review by Tony
The Oral-B Triumph 5000 discharges its battery in less than an hour, so you need a NiMH battery designed for high discharge rates --- batteries designed to run a torch or a clock have a high internal resistance, so the voltage falls below threshold almost immediately. I have now had this cell in my Triumph 5000 for over a year, and still get 10 days of use after a charge before the toothbrush starts flashing (and there remains a couple of days use before the battery dies, if I am desperate). Excellent cell. See (Posted on 17/01/2015)
Oral B replacement Review by Pops
Followed on-line instructions. Had to trim the tags down as they were a tad too long, but easily done with sharp scissors. It all went together fairly easily and is working like new again now. (Posted on 04/01/2015)
Oral B replacement - top marks Review by HertsMum
Only a few days in, but so far so good. A bit of a difference in cost of new battery versus replacement toothbrush!! (Posted on 03/12/2014)
