That’s right, we’re now stocking FDK batteries at ToothbrushBattery.com ready to fit to your toothbrush.
So what’s the big deal? Well FDK are the current supplier of rechargeable NiMH batteries to Braun Oral-B for use inside their electric toothbrushes. If you have a Braun Oral-B toothbrush made in the last few years it’s highly likely that the original battery inside it is from FDK. Prior to that the batteries were made by Sanyo – until Panasonic bought Sanyo and sold their Takasaki NiMH battery factory in Japan to FDK in 2010 who took over production and make the batteries to the exact same specification.
You can now replace the old worn out battery in your Braun Oral-B electric toothbrush that won’t charge any more with one of the exact same top-quality Japanese construction – guaranteed to recharge and run your toothbrush correctly.
What’s the difference between these FDK batteries and the GP batteries of the same dimensions? Well the GP batteries are made in their factory in China and are slightly lower in capacity than the FDK equivalents. The GP batteries are still very reliable and offer good value for money compared to the top quality FDK batteries.
