Any deals on electric toothbrushes?

I bought one about 3 years (probably 6 if I thought 3 knowing how fast time goes without realizing) and it will not keep charge.

I despise having to throw away an otherwise perfectly working device but last time around when I posted on here about it I was advised to do that rather than try and change the battery since they make it so hard to change the battery yourself (thanks throwaway culture).

So any deals to get another one? The one I have currently is a braun oral b, can't remember the make precisely but was about £30 I iirc. Would be looking to spend the same again.

    Boots had some deals the other week.
    Take a look at their website and see if you see something you like then search other websites for the same model at a better deal.

    Just to point out that there's 3 options for the brush mentioned:
    Cross action

    They have different suffixes, which I think are:

    Just under £40 in Boots.

    I would worry the lidl one would not be as effective as an oral B. I am certainly not a name brand slave (quite the contrary) but teeth are the last thing you wanna scrimp on.
  • user225688
    There are oral B 600s for between £19.99 and £24.99. The one I currently have which is failing is the oral B 2000 iirc but that one cost 40 quid now. So what is the difference between the models?

    There is also the oral B vitality for £17 but I don't want to scrimp of price if it will be a detriment to my teeth though it is not clear to me as yet what that great extra costs gets you?
