The quip toothbrush uses the same type of motor and vibration frequency as many leading brands.
To help perfect your technique, we added a clever pulse every 30 seconds to remind you to change quadrants of your mouth (upper left, bottom left, upper right, bottom right) and a 2 minute timer that makes sure you're brushing long enough! quip's motor vibrates at approximately 15,000 RPM.
Our electric toothbrushes use a standard AAA battery to operate the motor inside. The battery will last 3 months on a single charge which means you can replace the battery at the same time as you replace the brush head and we include a fresh new battery in your refill pack which is sent every 3 months! We also recommend using rechargeable batteries to reduce cost and waste and you are able to "go green" to opt out of battery refills.
We heard a lot of negative feedback from other electric toothbrush users who hated the need to keep it charged, hated how large the charger and brush was and Hated how gross the charger became or the fact that their batteries wear out after a year (leading to a need to replace the entire brush as the batteries were locked inside!)
We wanted to change this and realized that, by already having to replace your head every 3 months, this was the perfect opportunity to also change or charge your brush! So at the same time as replacing your head, you simply drop in a new or recharged AAA battery and no longer have to worry about keeping it charged for another 3 months! This also allowed us to make a brush that is far slimmer and more travel ready than any on the market!
