Charging the battery of your Philips Sonicare toothbrush is as easy as 1-2-3. Find out how to charge your Philips Sonicare toothbrush properly.
Most Philips Sonicare toothbrushes
1) Plug the charger into a live electrical power outlet 2) Place the handle on the charger 3) The flashing light on the handle indicates that the toothbrush is charging 4) It takes at least 24 hours to fully charge the battery
In step 3 above, if the battery charge indicator on the handle does not blink green, the charger might not be plugged into a live outlet. To confirm that the charger is plugged into a live outlet, press the on/off button while the handle is on the charger.
The handle should not activate when it is charging in a normal manner. If the handle turns on on the charger, repeat steps 1 - 3 using a different power outlet. If you repeat the procedure and your handle continues to activate while on the charger, contact the Philips call centre for instructions
