Universal Sonic Toothbrush (Image courtesy Solutions)By Andrew Liszewski

Given the relatively cheap price of battery-operated sonic toothbrushes these days (what are they like under $10 now?) I really don’t understand why someone would want a device like this. Basically it’s a universal adapter that will turn a normal manual toothbrush into one that vibrates 40,000 times a minute.

Then again if you have a manual toothbrush you’re not willing to part with and the sonic adapter appeals to you you’ll be happy to know that it’s powered by a single AA battery, is completely waterproof and has a grip made of silicon so it won’t accidentally slip out of your hand.

The Universal Sonic Toothbrush is available from Solutions for $49.95. (Plus the cost of a regular toothbrush.)

  1. I bought a rechargeable electric toothbrush for $25 last week. They are not much more expensive than battery-powered ones, and much better for the environment as you don’t have to discard disposable batteries.

  2. Don’t the heads on some electric toothbrushes cost as much as a normal middle-of-the-range toothbrush? I guess this invention lets you use a cheap toothbrush in the electric socket & permits you to change around the head to a completely different style if you feel like a bit of variation. 😉

  3. just a guess but sonicare replacement heads are $25 for two on amazon. I suppose you could find them cheaper, but a $1-$3 manual toothbrush and this thing is pretty compelling.
