Battle of the electric toothbrushes – Phandroid


Brushing our teeth is something we all do (hopefully) at least twice a day. For some, brushing your teeth is all about hygiene, and it is, but keeping our teeth clean is more than about looking good, having pearly whites and looking great on teeth. pictures when we smile.

Having clean teeth has many other health benefits. For example, did you know that there was a study that found a link between poor brushing habits and higher heart risks?

That’s why apart from the look and smell, making sure you have nice clean teeth is very important. Now, there are plenty of toothbrushes you can easily get at your drugstore, but if you’re looking to take your teeth cleaning to the next level, switching to an electric toothbrush is the next step, and today we’ll be looking at two electric toothbrushes – the Spark from Soocas and the Philips One.

Spark by Soocas

One downside to electric toothbrushes is that in general they can be big, bulky, and heavy. For some it’s a dealbreaker, especially if they want to travel with it, as it can be difficult to fit in your standard toiletry bag.

With the Spark, the company designed it to be about the size of a regular manual toothbrush. This makes it not only lightweight, but also relatively small so you can take it with you on the go. It features a body diameter of 16 mm (0.63 inches) and weighs only 59.44 grams (0.13 lbs), even though it is made with an aluminum alloy body.

It features a transparent design for the toothbrush head and there are built-in indicator lights that let you know when the battery is low as well as whether the toothbrush is in gentle mode or cleaning mode. which is handy if you want to know. what is happening at a glance. The Spark also features a 30-second zone change reminder that will vibrate and the light ring will flash, letting you know when to move to a different part of your mouth for a more even clean.

Soocas has also used the Soocas nanomotor for the Spark toothbrush which the company says allows it to reach up to 30,000 vibrations per minute, more than double the competition. The faster vibrations combined with the use of Dupont bristles also means the toothbrush will be able to clean more efficiently, effectively removing buildup and other food from your teeth.

Now, since it’s a toothbrush and it’s bound to get wet, Soocas has ensured that the Spark has an IPX8 water resistance rating, which again is higher than the competition where we usually see an IPX7 rating. While IPX7 is usually good enough, better water resistance is a good thing, especially when sticking what is essentially an electronic gadget with a battery inside your mouth.

Speaking of battery, the Spark has a lithium-ion battery which is rated for 40 days of use and only requires 2 hours of charging to bring it back to full capacity. The 40 days of battery life is great, especially if you’re traveling and want to make sure the toothbrush stays up and running while on vacation. It also charges via USB-C, which means it’ll be compatible with most chargers and cables you’d use to charge your phone, tablet or wireless headphones.

Philips One

Philips is a popular brand when it comes to consumer electronics, so it’s no surprise that the company has also entered the electric toothbrush market. In fact, Philips is one of the most popular brands as it offers so many models, but if we look at comparisons with the Spark, the Philips One is probably the closest.

Unlike the Spark, the Philips One is made with a plastic body and comes in two different variants – one that uses AAA batteries and another that uses rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you don’t want to carry spare batteries, the rechargeable gives users up to 30 days of use and can take up to 8 hours to fully charge.

It is also more expensive at $39.99 compared to the Spark which costs $29.99 and also lasts longer and takes less time to charge.

Philips has chosen to use a hollow cup motor for the Philips One which can go up to 13,000 vibrations per minute and is only offered in one standard mode, unlike the Spark which has suitable gentle and cleaning modes. to the user.

On the front of the brush, which is obviously the most important component of the toothbrush, the Philips One features nylon filament bristles. This is the norm when it comes to entry-level brushes, so it’s hard to fault Philips in this regard. It’s also IPX7 certified, which again is pretty standard too, but if you’re worried about your electronics getting wet, a higher rating would be ideal.

Similar to the Spark, the Philips One comes with a travel case and extra brush head so when your old one wears out you’ll have another spare ready to go, which we can appreciate.

The Philips One will come with a 30-second zone change reminder where the toothbrush will vibrate to let users know when to change.


If we look at a direct comparison between the Spark and the Philips One with a rechargeable battery, at $27.99 (with the 30% off $39.99 for early risers), the Spark seems like a better deal, especially with features like the built-in ring light indicator, faster vibrations, longer battery life, higher quality bristles on the brush head, and better water resistance.

But if you don’t mind bringing extra AAA batteries, or you have plenty of them at home, then the battery version of the Philips One actually makes more sense, especially if you value features like runtime extended battery life up to 90 days. and also be able to save some money.
