I travel a lot and was so excited to see a travel-toothbrush whose description likened it to a SonicCare yet I could travel overseas with and not worry about power requirements. Didn't find that to be true, but was an OK toothbrush. Difficult to turn on/off, and then the head of the toothbrushes broke off within about 6 months time. Ended up buying a kids battery-powered toothbrush for less than half the price, that is still working 3 years later. Sorry, really wanted this to work...

* Excellent - but Use Properly
I have been traveling for, essentially the last 5 years with this brush (maybe 20 countries). It is Excellent! Small, lightweight, efficient and durable. No, it is NOT waterproof, and not supposed to be so just don't fully submerge it. Only the brush should get wet. I dry it off after each use and take proper care. Try to replace batteries on a regular schedule or else the speed will dramatically slow and you won't notice. Great Value - I even use at home - and am now buying more! Good job !

Love this item!!!!
Not as vicious as the regular sonic toothbrushes. Actually better because I will use these more often. Initially purchase for trips, now use all the time.

Save your money
Bought two of these, as my husband and I travel a lot and we love our Sonic Care toothbrushes, but wanted something smaller for travel. My husband had a hard time using it because the neck of the brush is short and he couldn't comfortably reach his back teeth. In addition, the power on/off button is difficult to push while brushing your teeth - just a weird design. Finally, it is NOTHING like a Sonic, or even a regular electric, toothbrush. It jiggles/vibrates a little, but I was able to clean my teeth better using a manual brush. My husband gave up after one trip, I tried using it on a 2nd trip but ended up buying a manual brush halfway through our 3-week vacation because my teeth (after using 2-3x per day) felt scummy and gross. Next time, I'll sacrifice the space and bring my full size Sonic Care!

Know what you are ordering, use it correctly, enjoy!
Before the review of this specific product, a brief introduction to tooth cleaning. In the beginning, people used twigs and leaves to clean their teeth (millions still do). Then came what we call the toothbrush . . . a small bristle brush which cleaned the teeth by mechanical action (just like cleaning loose paint with a brush). People began to add cleaning agents to the process, including a number of difference abrasives and breath-fresheners (just like adding some fine grit to wood polishing or sucking on a mint leaf). The "electric" toothbrush simply automated the process so that small, consistent brushing motions were applied to the teeth, and the harder you pressed the brush against the teeth the better you scraped off plaque and tartar (as well as microscopic amounts of enamel and surface gum tissue). What we got was a small rotor sander for the mouth aiding by an abrasive paste, gel, or powder. In addition, some of those additive provided chemical support through fluoride and/or triclosan. A sonic toothbrush removes the plaque on teeth through a high frequency motion (and its resultant "sound" waves) in a nearly non-mechanical fashion. I am sure you have seen jewelry cleaned in this way -- the sound waves dislodge the dirt without scratching the surface. With a sonic toothbrush, one should have the tooth surfaces well moistened (to transmit the waves), apply the brush gently to the teeth (no need for more than contact . . . pressure does not increase any benefits) and let the waves do their job. Add such dentifrice as you might desire, but the waves alone can do the work. There is no abrasion of the tooth nor of the gums. The bristles in the brush will be vibrating at about 333-500 times a second and since our eyes cannot differentiate motion (think motion picture frames) faster than about 30 changes a second, the head may not appear to be moving at all -- it is just moving faster than you can see! The Go Travel Sonic Travel Toothbrush operates at about 2/3 the vibrations of the top line, domestic model (20,000 vpm as opposed to 30,000 vpm) but well within the range of effectiveness. The reduction in vibrations is a result of needing to match the action to the power source. One of the great benefits of this model is that it does not rely on either plug-in nor rechargable power, but rather on internationally and easily available AAA batteries. It's compact size makes it easy to carry along on both long and day trips, and the protective cover makes it a durable unit. The on/off switch is a combination electro/mechanical one, and you will need to find the "sweet spot" on yours near where the marked on and off are - it may not be exactly in the middle of the "button." Cleaning is efficient and effective. Battery life will be excellent if one remembers to moisten teeth first, not press down on the brush as if it were mechanical, and so not load up the drive mechanism. I suspect that once a person who customarily uses a mechanical toothbrush (hand or electric) experiences the cleanliness created by this unit, they will want to invest in a home model (or maybe just keep using this travel unit as a home unit!) Well done.
