You now have the option to either replace the old battery with one of the same physical dimensions or modify the plastic housing to accept a longer, higher capacity 49mm battery. The original-sized 42mm x 14mm batteries available in our shop are 1400mAh capacity and the longer 49mm x 14mm batteries are 2200mAh, over 50% higher capacity! Higher capacity means your toothbrush will run for longer before it needs recharging. See the picture below for (left to right) replacement 42mm battery, original 42mm battery and replacement 49mm battery.
The Oral-B PRO 6500 Black SmartSeries electric toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity is the world's first of its kind with Bluetooth Connectivity. Bluetooth communication allows the brush to connect with your Oral-B App to provide real time brushing guidance that can be adjusted by your dental professional. Also receive focused care through personalised dental care journeys to meet your specific oral care needs. The professionally inspired design of the CrossAction toothbrush head surrounds each tooth with bristles angled at 16°, and 3D cleaning action oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to break up and remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush. The pressure sensor lights up if you brush too hard to prevent harmful over-brushing and there are 6 modes—Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Deep Clean and Tongue Cleaner—and a timer to help you brush for a dentist-recommended 2 minutes.
Lasts for years. Experts and users give the Oral-B Pro 1000's long-term durability a thumb's up. It's been the top pick at for a couple of years and continues to perform well. Owners agree, with many saying they have used Oral-B electric toothbrushes in general for up to 10 years, and this model specifically for multiple years, before needing a replacement. Oral-B offers a vast variety of brush heads that fit this and other Oral-B electric toothbrushes, something that users greatly appreciate; generic brush heads are also available from various manufacturers. While there are always complaints about the cost of replacing brush heads, most agree that Oral-B brush heads are among the most affordable. Brush heads should be replaced every three months and cost about $15 for a pack of three. Generic brush heads are available as well, but get much poorer reviews for performance.
