Oral-B Genius 8000/9000 Toothbrush Handle $71 | Charge base $30 (+ $10 Flat Rate Shipping) @ Statewide Services

1140

This deal is a bit of a hack for those who do not care about shiny packaging or travel cases.

Oral-B sells many electric toothbrush products, but many share the same "handle" (which is the main thing really). The handle included in the Genius 8000/9000 and the Smart 7000 products is the 3765; the only difference between these boxed retail products are the accessories (included brushes, travel case and phone holder for the 9000).

You can buy the white handle separately for $71. The Black version is $74 (same size though…).

You can add a genius charger for $30. However, if you already have a charger it may work (taking my chances). The website implies the genius is a different model charger, but it has the same product code and type number (3757). I have previously successfully charged a "Pro 700" model on a charger meant for a 3765 handle. My Pro 700 has the same model number, "CS number" and wattage (0.9W) as the charger of a 3765 handle.

  • Price for a handle + charger would be $111 shipped.
  • Handle alone would be $81 shipped.
  • 2 Handles $152 shipped

Typical "special" price for a retail Genius 9000 is ~$150-$160 (which includes shiny box, travel case + some brush heads).

I needed 2 handles, which at $152 shipped (+ $30 if you need a charger) works out much cheaper than a "Genius 8000 dual handle pack" ($225 from Amazon AU / $249 from Shavershop).

    Anything for Phillips handles?

    I bought the Oral-B Genius 8000 retail box at Shavershop ebay store for a low $99. I was quite happy with it and cleaned very well. It's even better than my Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush. It's a good deal if already have a charger.

      They're a spare parts supplier for many major brands. I've bought kenwood and breville parts and accessories from them before.
      Never noticed they sold Braun/Oral-B stuff before though.

      They are an official authorised repairer for Oral B (I took my toothbrush there to get fixed and they just gave me a replacement). It's legit.

  • +5 votes

    Thanks mate.

    I noticed that the plastics and rubber on these Oral-B handles are quite susceptible to mould blackening the rubber, especially if you don't proactively wipe down the base on them every day.

    Wish them came with a metallic body like the Sonicare ones.

      Dunk them in diluted bleach.

        Yeh I've been doing that occasionally using Domestos scented bleach so it doesn't smell like chit after - just a PITA that I have to do it every 1-2 months so it doesn't start staining again.

        •  

          …just a PITA that I have to do it every 1-2 months so it doesn't start staining again.

          Geez if every 1 to 2 months is frequent enough to be a pain, I have to ask…how often are you cleaning your teeth?

          •  

            @dm01: Not sure if serious, but I'd presume most people here do not or never have dunked their electric toothbrush base into a solvent liquid to ensure mould does not grow between the gaps for it to become common practice.

            •  

              @meetyourmaker: No, I was not being serious, I was trying to highlight the irony of you complaining about having to clean an item every 30 to 60 days when that item itself is used for cleaning (hopefully) twice a day.

              To put it another way, if you're spending four minutes per day cleaning your teeth (2x 2 minutes), is it really a PITA to spend an additional 5(?) minutes, each month or two, to clean your brush handle?

              In other words, if 5 minutes every 30 to 60 days is a PITA, then spending 4 minutes (hopefully) - every single day - must drive you absolutely bananas!

              I'm sorry my original comment lacked clarity.

              •  

                @dm01: Oh I completely understand what you're trying to convey, however I don't find it ironic for this specific scenario.

                The fact that you need to soak an electric toothbrush base into a solvent such as bleach, that is not a part of its recommended cleaning/maintenance just to prevent staining/mould on the handle due to the design of its base is the problem. 5 minutes every 30 to 60 days is optimistic - you need to soak it in bleach for 6+ hours just to remove the surface staining of the rubber. Furthermore. who is to say that this is even safe for the materials to be subjected to such a strong solvent.

                It's really no different than someone complaining that their specific model of car requiring a specific and non-documented bi-monthly engine clean due to their choice of materials/design that majority of makes do not require - regardless of the fact that the person drives twice a day, twice a week/month/year. Whether or not driving twice a day drives me bananas or not, to most, is a necessity.

                Though it's all first world problems, just highlighting the design flaw of the handles which is easily preventable from purchasing a toothbrush with a solid base (preferably metal construction) that does not use the cheap Oral-B rubbers for other potential buyers :)

                  @meetyourmaker:

                  The fact that you need to soak an electric toothbrush base into a solvent such as bleach…

                  I've had the same Oral B electric toothbrush handle for 4 years now, and it's not an issue I've encountered

                  Furthermore. who is to say that this is even safe for the materials to be subjected to such a strong solvent…

                  Given that such an action is - as you said - "…not a part of its recommended cleaning/maintenance" and is presumably a cleaning methodology you've undertaken voluntarily without consulting with the manufacturer, if it's not actually safe to use a solvent as you've described, that's no fault of the manufacturer or the handle, is it?

                  …5 minutes every 30 to 60 days is optimistic - you need to soak it in bleach for 6+ hours just to remove the surface staining of the rubber…

                  Of those 6+ hours soaking, do you spend the entirety of it sitting there watching? Or do you spend a few minutes getting the dilution ready, adding the handle, and then go do other things for while?

                  Your car analogy is poorly chosen I'm afraid. You're not performing a "specific and non-documented bi-monthly engine clean", but running it through the car wash, so to speak.

                  How often a car needs to be washed probably varies a lot depending on the owner's driving habits - where and how far they go, the type of roads it's driven on, whether it gets parked outside under a tree full of berry-eating birds or inside a dry, clean garage etc.

                  •  

                    @dm01: That's great that you have had no issues for the last 4 years, myself and a few others on this specific thread have already stated that the cheap rubber handles on the Oral-B toothbrushes are prone to staining and mould.

                    The discussion and argument is about the fact that the only way to clean it once it stains or is moulding is through soaking it in bleach - there is no other reactive method of cleaning it off, and as stated by yourself, it isn't even an authorized way of cleaning by the manufacturer and therefore why I'm hesitant on constantly using that method. What are you even trying to argue here? I'm saying that I should not and do not want to do it when addressing your initial comment of "oh what's the big deal about doing it regularly when you brush your teeth twice a day".
                    Again, 5 minutes, 6 hours, 30 weeks soaking, this is completely irrelevant when it should not be done at all - and as evident, not required by other brands such as Sonicare that are not prone at all to the same issue.

                    The car analogy does the job fine, whether it's the engine, or the tyres, or whatever else - it's about as irrelevant as your comparison to soaking it in bleach vs "running it through a car wash". The point is, that a similar product that does not adopt the same design whereby there is no unsealed gap between the rubber and plastic has no issues in the same test conditions and environment. If I had two cars, that are subjected to the same conditions, driven twice a day, and say one of them constantly created far more brake dust due to caliper design than the other - obviously I'm going to take notice and express my thoughts.

                    Note** this is purely my biggest and only negative experience with the Oral-B brushes, that have otherwise been perfect, I've just switched to Sonicare ones and hope it helps those who have the same issue. So really, why the persistence? I apologize in not clarifying that someone opting to forego spending additional time bleaching their toothbrush handle does not correlate to someone cleaning their teeth daily.

                      All things need to be cleaned…cars, handles, teeth.

                      The car analogy does the job fine, whether it's the engine, or the tyres, or whatever else

                      Nah, the car analogy was flawed, sorry.

                        @dm01: I never stated that all things should not be cleaned - how you come to that conclusion through the comparison of one make of toothbrush to another in the same working conditions is beyond me.

                        It's clearly wasted effort conversing with you as evident from all your "throwaway" comments, as mentioned in my original reply, it is obviously meant for those who experienced the same issue.

                        Only flawed due to your thought process and attempt to argue irrelevant points.

                      @meetyourmaker: "there is no other reactive method of cleaning it off"

                      Try white vinegar (spraying it on, not necessarily soaking in it). Bleach often just, well, bleaches the mould but doesnt kill it, so that you can't see it and think it is gone, but it is still there. Vinegar will actually kill the mould.

                      •  

                        @Astronaut Joe: Thanks, I actually just let it soak in white vinegar in a shotglass with the toothbrush handle overnight but it didn't seem to do anything at all.

                        The gap between the rubber and plastic ends up expanding and the mould/black stains grow with it over time and is from within - the bleaching just seems to whiten it and remove the surface mould.

                        It just ended up being easier to manage and avoid by storing the brush upside down or sideways so the water residue doesn't flow down and get stuck in between the poorly designed base lid.

          Bleach will damage the plastic and rubber and probably give more places for the mould to grow.

              @diazepam: I remove the head from the body, and give both a VERY thorough rinse after brushing then dry off on a small towel on the benchtop that I use only for this (which gets thrown into the laundry weekly). That way when you put it back on the charging station, there is minimal amount of moisture for it to promote bacteria and mould growth. I have a window right next to the vanity which gets a few hours of direct morning sun which helps to discourage any growth of mould. Also, I wash the charging base thoroughly with soap and water whenever it needs it.

                  @diazepam: When my toothbrush head started to smell funny, I filled an empty jar with very hot water, put in the toothbrush head, put on the jar lid and shook it vigorously and was surprised by the flakes of black mould that came out of the head. I just repeated until there was no more mould and the smell was gone. I repeat that now regularly until I replace the head with a new one.

      I have the same issue, dunking in bleach only removes the external mould, but not the mould in between the rubber layer and plastic handle.

      Any idea which models do not come with a rubber layer?

      •  

        Most if not all the Oral-B ones have the same design, whereby there is a gap that separates the rubber on the handle to the charging base below, which is a flawed design as the end user is not supposed to open it up from the bottom anyways.

        Look at getting the Sonicare ones, they are universally praised as being superior in build, although they don't have the same oscillating brush heads which some people think are more effective at cleaning your teeth and are more expensive and never as heavily discounted as Oral-B.

      If it's similar spec (oscillation and pulsation rate) then probably not unless the battery is on it's way out. Even then you can buy a replacement battery if you like a bit of DIY.

    Where do we find this version code? My Trizone 5000 as well as my $10 Vitality both came with the same 3757 charger but I'm not sure if there is a version code (or if it makes a difference. I'm guessing not.)

      Honestly would rather pay a bit more for genuine.

      They often get posted here either from Costco/Shavershop/Chemistwarehouse/Amazon coming at a few bux per brush head.

      At the end of the day, it is a dental product. I feel like in the long run your teeth would be grateful for it.

      Also the cheapo heads seem to not last very long in comparison.

      I don't care much about the smart features, but if it oscillates more ie is more powerful, I'm interested - does anyone know where to find the stats on oscillation for each model? I've struggled to

      •  

        They tested it and found that more oscillations doesn't translates to better cleaning. I was researching whether more was better, but the reality is it is like having a glass of water under the tap. Once you fill it in, the rest is just overflowing. You are not getting the benefits of more. Just the manufacturers spiel so you think wow, so good.
