Best Cheap Electric Toothbrush For 2022 - Your Choice Way

Want to keep your teeth clean without paying through the nose? These are the best electric toothbrushes that won't break the bank.

If you've been considering making the leap from a manual brush to an electric toothbrush, price may have been holding you back. But you don't have to spend hundreds to reap the benefits. Electric toothbrushes are pricey but if you're willing to do without a few frills, you can get a high-quality brush, often with a surprising number of features.

More and more, studies confirm the benefits of using an electric toothbrush over brushing manually, so if you've recently received a ticking-off from your dentist, it might be time to go for it. 

The most important parts of an electric toothbrush are a decent motor and a well designed cleaning head. We've tested all of the brushes we recommend below, to make sure that – even though their prices are lower – their performance is solid. 

Beyond that, there are factors like battery life and charging options, as well as more advanced features such as brushing modes, a timer and pressure sensor. Not all of the budget-friendly brushes below will have all of these features, so to find out which ones are important to you, check out our buying advice after the chart.

If you decide you want to spend a bit more, have a look at our round up of the best electric toothbrushes we've tested at all price ranges. Otherwise, see our best budget options below. 

1. Oral-B Pro 3 3000

1. Oral-B Pro 3 3000
Pros
  • Two week battery life
  • Pressure sensor
  • Brushing timer
  • Good cleaning performance
Cons
  • Shaver socket plug only
  • One button operation
  • Noisy
Not available in US

For a very reasonable price, the Pro 3 3000 has everything you need in an electric toothbrush.

What's most important is its excellent cleaning performance. But it also has all the features we think you need. Its timer will tell you to move on to a new section of your mouth every 30 seconds and let you know when your two-minute brushing time is up.

It also has a bright red pressure sensor that lights when you press too hard.

The only design issue is that its shiny on/off button can get a bit slippery when wet. Since it has a single-button operation, you have to scroll through its other brushing modes to switch it off.

There's no USB charging plug but its two-week battery life means that you should be able to get through a holiday without having to recharge it.


2. Moon electric toothbrush

2. Moon electric toothbrush
Pros
  • 6-week battery life
  • 5 brushing modes
  • Timer
  • USB charger
Cons
  • No pressure sensor
  • Replacement brush heads only available by subscription
$59.99 RRP

This stylish brush packs in a lot of features for its price point, with five brushing modes. That's pretty unusual, but its six-week battery life has to be its outstanding feature.

If you wanted to bring a charger along when you travel, just to be on the safe side, the petite stand and USB plug make it a portable option.

But it's not flawless. It lacks a pressure sensor, so you should avoid this product if you tend to press too hard when you brush.

And, perhaps most importantly, replacement brush heads are only available by subscription. This may make it a convenient option for people who often forget to change their brush heads every three months, but it's certainly not cheap.


3. Oral-B Pro 2 2000

3. Oral-B Pro 2 2000
Pros
  • 2 brushing modes
  • Pressure sensor
Cons
  • Shaver socket plug only
$69.99

The Oral-B Pro 2 2000 is a straightforward brush.

Its features are simple: there are only two brushing modes and a pressure sensor, with no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features, and no app support. However it works well, is comfortable to use, and boasts a two-week battery life – not bad for the price.

A spare brush head or two in the pack would have been welcome, along with a more detailed battery indicator, but these are small complaints about a brush that does a very good job for a very low price.


4. Ordo Sonic+

4. Ordo Sonic+
Pros
  • Good battery life
  • USB charger
  • Subscription option
Cons
  • No pressure sensor
  • No battery light
  • Pricey replacement brush heads
$0.0

The Ordo Sonic+ is good value, although replacement brush heads can be expensive. However, if you get the subscription service, it may be worth it to get a delivery of toothpaste, floss, interdental brushes and mouthwash.

It brushes well and has a brilliantly designed head that gives great coverage. And you can choose from four brushing modes. Battery life is good as well, with comfortably over the promised three weeks if you brush twice a day for two minutes.

However, there's no pressure sensor and no battery warning light, which are features we missed while using it.


5. Quip

5. Quip
Pros
  • Attractive design
  • 3-month battery life
  • Brushing timer
Cons
  • Vibrations extremely gentle
  • No pressure sensor
  • No battery light
$39.99

Quip isn't a plug-in-and-charge electric toothbrush. It's battery operated (although it's not disposable – the battery can be changed when it runs out) and as such, its vibrations are so gentle that it's more of a manual-plus brush.

It would be a good option for people who find electric toothbrushes too intense but who want to take better care of their teeth.

It has a brushing timer that will help to ensure that you're brushing for long enough, although it doesn't have a pressure sensor.

But it's travel-friendly and comes with a toothbrush holder you can stick to a mirror or tile, remove and re-use. It's beautifully designed and you can separately buy matching dental care accessories – including gum, mouthwash and floss – that may encourage you to improve your dental care regime.


6. Oral-B Vitality

6. Oral-B Vitality
Pros
  • Budget-friendly
  • Brushing timer
  • Grippy handle
Cons
  • Oscillates only
  • Short battery life
  • No battery light
  • No pressure alert
$20

If your budget is tight but you want to upgrade from a manual brush, this is one of the most budget-friendly options. However, you'll have to make a couple of compromises.

On the plus side, it has a brushing timer, a thick, grippy handle and you can buy generic replacement heads very cheaply. But it's lacking a pressure sensor.

It doesn't feature any kind of battery lights. We can manage without a battery warning indicator but we really missed the battery charging light: it would be nice to know if it's charging properly.

It also only oscillates, rather than oscillating and vibrating, like Oral-B's higher-tier brushes, so it doesn't give such a powerful clean.


7. Oclean Air 2

7. Oclean Air 2
Pros
  • Quiet
  • USB charging
Cons
  • Extremely gentle brushing performance
  • No pressure sensor
$39.99

The Oclean Air 2 is a small, slender electric toothbrush with an attractive appearance. It's light, pleasant to hold and quiet when switched on, which is one of its key selling points.

It comes in white, pink, purple and dark green (pictured) and on some sites, the price varies depending on the colour.

The Air 2 is quite basic in terms of functionality. There is no pressure sensor or battery light and it only has two brushing modes: gentle and clean – and both are very gentle indeed. I found them to be too gentle, but people with sensitive teeth and gums might find them ideal. 

However, it does pause to let you know when you've brushed for long enough in one section of your mouth and stops after two minutes.

It charges in 2.5 hours on a tiny, very portable magnetic disc with a USB lead. Its battery is promised to last for 40 days. We can't confirm that but when we tested it, we used it for over a month and it was still going.

Electric toothbrush buying advice
If you're buying a budget electric toothbrush, there are certain features to look out for – and some that you’re unlikely to find in a budget brush, such as app-compatibility.

The most important features are battery life, different brushing programmes (or at least a way to change the brushing intensity), a timer and a pressure sensor. You might not find every feature in every budget brush, so it’s a good idea to decide what’s important to you before you buy.

Some of the brushes we've recommended have a USB charger, rather than the traditional two-pin shaving plug. This makes them easier to charge if you’re travelling, as well as if you don’t have a dedicated socket in your bathroom at home, so it may make a shorter battery life less of a deal breaker.

A timer is very important. You should brush your teeth for two minutes, twice daily, but it’s easy to lose track of time and think you’ve brushed long enough. The brushes we’ve recommended will let you know after two minutes, so you'll always brush for long enough.

Some will also pause every thirty seconds to let you know to move on to the next section of your mouth, so you don’t brush one area for too long or neglect another part of your mouth.

A pressure sensor will alert you if you’re brushing too hard. Of all the most important features on an electric toothbrush, this is the one most likely to be absent from a budget brush.
