Oral care tech startup Oclean announced its brand-new toothbrush, the Oclean Air 2. Powered by the company’s proprietary ultrasonic signal technology which delivers one of the quietest brushing experiences called WhisperClean, the toothbrush is light, compact, and comfortable to hold. Although it looks like an ordinary toothbrush, users will immediately notice the difference between Air 2 and traditional electric toothbrushes: there is no noise!
With its waterproof body which makes it easy to wash and keep clean, Oclean Air 2 is also 30% thinner than traditional electric toothbrushes. Powered by a customized Oclean motor with up to 42,000 rpm frequency, it is built to deliver in-depth cleaning. Fully charged in only 2.5 hours via its quick magnetic charging, the Oclean Air 2 can be used for 40 days per charge.
In addition to the new model, the company also offers the Oclean X Pro (its flagship model), Oclean W1 Smart Oral Irrigator (which is said to be the most compact water flosser on the market) and Oclean S1 Sanitizer.
