We depend on our favourite tooth brush to start and get us through the day. At the Techknow Space, we fix all electronic devices, including hygiene products like electric toothbrushes.
The modern electric toothbrush has refined mechanisms and electronics that have been reduced in size. Given their small size, these components are very robust and can withstand being thrown around in your luggage at the airport. Occasionally, these inner components may also need to be repaired and although it happens less frequently, we repair them all the same.
Most electric toothbrushes suffer from a similar issue and that is the batteries simply need to be replaced. Like most of our electronics, electric toothbrushes have rechargeable batteries. In order for them to get wet without being damaged, these batteries and electronics are sealed water-tight and require special tools to properly open.
Over time, the batteries need to be replaced. Unlike most modern rechargeable batteries, these brushes typically use the Nickel-Cadmium (NiCad battery), as it's much safer to be used around water, should anything go wrong. Nickel Cadmium is a chemical composition used in rechargeable batteries for a long time.
Don't hesitate to bring in any of your electronics that you may think it's odd to repair. Nothing is beyond our technicians.
In the past we have serviced and repaired dozens of tooth brush models from many different brands, including:
Always remember, only brush those teeth you want to keep!
