quip is powered by the same regular or rechargeable batteries as other electric brushes (AAA in our case), but ours are not locked in so you can easily remove and replace.
All electric toothbrushes are powered by batteries inside the handle. The difference with quip is its removable AAA battery that lasts for over 3 months. Other electrics with locked-in batteries may force you to keep a useless brush even if they stop working, or simply add expense with a separate charging stand. But remember, the efficacy of your toothbrush isn’t defined by power itself, but by how well you follow a proper brushing routine. When you’re ready to refresh your quip, you have the flexibility to choose from two options.
Your 3-month refill pack comes with a free AAA battery and fresh brush head. Just swap your old battery when you replace your bristles, then you’re set for the next 3 months. Watch our how-to guide.
Remember, the effectiveness of your toothbrush doesn’t come down to its power level or source, it comes down to how well you follow a proper brushing routine.
