Replacing Sonicare Toothbrush Battery
September 30, 2011 9:12 AM   Subscribe

I own a Sonicare Toothbrush. The battery has now died. Phillips used to replace these toothbrushes for about 75% of their original cost. However, Phillips now has suspended this practice. Would anyone know of a small independent company that would repair my Sonicare by replacing the dead battery? Thanks in advance.

Seriously, nowadays anything that's mass produced generally has a hacker-following around it such that things like this don't require you to forge ahead on your own if you've got your wits about you. Example, I just refilled my Brita pitcher's disposable filter via an instructable like I presented here. Huge money savers. Virtually all are win-win if you're even somewhat handy.

I used that very same instructable to replace the battery on my sonicare. Worked like a charm.

DANG IT! We just replaced two Sonicare brushes whose batteries croaked. (The Philips people on the phone were adamant that nothing could be replaced. Grrrrr.) We bought Brauns and, while they are eh....OK, my wife still wishes she had her old Sonicare back.
