Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 Electric Toothbrush
6100 is a series that Philips once sold very hot, but later, because the higher-end DiamondClean series came out, and the discount was more fierce, it was cheaper than the 6100, and instantly grabbed the 6100 market.
The 6100 series has 3 brushing modes (cleaning, whitening, gingival protection) and 3 strengths, including gravity sensor, brush head replacement reminder and more.
But in terms of price. The 6100 does lose its edge now.

Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 Electric Toothbrush
The 5100 and 6100 series have almost the same functions, 3 cleaning modes, 1 intensity, gravity sensor, brush head replacement reminder and more. In terms of price, it has almost lost to the DiamondClean diamond white series, so it has almost lost its competitive advantage.

How to change the brush head of Philips electric toothbrush
What types of brush heads?
There are many models of Philips brush heads. We don’t look at the specific model numbers, but only look at the series, which are divided into the following series:
W3 Premium White bright white brush head, mainly for cleaning stains and whitening teeth. Compared with manual toothbrushes, the teeth whitening effect can be seen in 3 days;
W2 Optimal White bright white brush head, one level lower than W3, visible whitening effect in 7 days;
C3 Premium Plaque Defence cleaning brush head, mainly for daily cleaning;
C2 Optimal Plaque Defence cleaning brush head, slightly lower than C3;
G3 Premium Gum Care brush to protect your gum health, sensitive teeth, bleeding gums can choose this;
G2 Optimal Gum Care brush, one level lower than G3.
Every original brush head of Philips electric toothbrush has a chip. Inserting the brush head will automatically sense the built-in chip, synchronize with the handle, and automatically match various brushing modes.
When does the brush head change?
The dentist suggested that our toothbrush should be replaced every 3 months. The Philips electric toothbrush has a replacement brush head indicator on the handle. As shown in the figure above, the indicator light is generally at the bottom of the handle. One brush head icon + two clockwise arrows. There is a chip sensor on the brush head. If the indicator flashes, it is time to replace the brush head. If it is not replaced in time, the wear of the bristles will affect the cleaning of the teeth, especially the cleaning efficiency of plaque bacteria will be reduced. If the electric toothbrush on your hand is relatively low-end and there is no reminder lamp to replace the brush head, it is recommended that you replace it every 3 months.
Do I have to buy the original brush head?
Can I not buy the original brush head? Because it is very expensive, there are many third-party brush heads on the Internet, and they can also be installed on the handle of Philips. Is there any difference between the two? In fact, I personally do not recommend using non-original brush heads. Philips original brush heads have a chip that will automatically sense when installed, which can give full play to the effectiveness of electric toothbrushes. If you only care about whether you can clean it, you don’t need brightening, gum protection and other functions. How to buy a brush head doesn’t matter, but why should you spend money on a full-function electric toothbrush? In addition, the quality level of third-party brush heads is uneven. There are still some differences between the material and workmanship of the bristles from the original factory. Why should you take this risk?
Where to buy the the cheapest Philips electric toothbrush in the UK
Electric toothbrushes are available on Philips’ official website, Boots (it’s cheap when you have extra points), Unineed (the package is cheap), and Amazon. For direct sales, if it is a member, it will arrive the next day.
Amazon’s after-sales service is also much better than other e-commerce companies. The after-sales system is mature, return and exchange are convenient, no shipping costs, and refunds are quick after returning. For the same type of Philips electric toothbrush, I compared it. Generally, the price on Amazon is about 5% lower than other e-commerce platforms.
How to charge electric toothbrush
I don’t know if you noticed that many toilets in the UK are equipped with a two-pin socket as standard. It says “shavers only”, which is a plug for charging the shaver. This can also be used for electric toothbrushes. Charging. As shown in the picture above, our bathroom plug has two two-pin sockets, one is 240V ordinary voltage, and the other is 115V voltage. Generally, Japanese appliances are equipped with 115V voltage, and British appliances are normal voltage, 220- It can be 240 volts. Be careful not to insert it wrongly.
If you don’t have a two-pin socket in your home, you can buy a triangular plug from Amazon that is used to charge your Philips electric toothbrush.
