Charging a Kinetic With a Sonicare Toothbrush Charger


philips-sonicare-elite.jpgUmm? Amazing? True? Dangerous?

Last night, when I was brushing my teeth with my sonicare tootbrush, I thought of using the charger to charge my watch. I said, what the heck, my watch is 7 years old anyway and I put the watch on top of the toothbrush charger. I left it overnight and lo and behold this morning , it was at full charge. The only thing I noticed is that the watch is a bit warm and I thought it might have been overcharged. Up to now, the watch is in full charge. It would have been better if I had monitored the charging until it was full charge or used a timer to avoid overcharging.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Will any toothbrush charger work or does it hav e to be a Sonicare?

    Did you put the watch face down or face up?

    Did you position the watch body over the opening?



  2. I side with Mr. Jones on the watch charging. I bought a sonicare toothbrush and managed to charge my seiko kinetic watch only once. I did not make specific notes about exactly how my watch was placed on the sonicare toothbrush charger, and now it is stillan experiment. I have moved the watch at least 3 times to different positions and gotten no charge. I need to see an illustration or picture of how the watch must be placed on the charger. HELP!!!

  3. I had an insight from this site and tried with my oral-B toothbrush charger for my Seiko kinetic watch with 5M43movement. It was a real fun to find out how quickly it can charge uptothe maximum level (indicating 30secs). I searched on the internet where the inducing coil exists for my watch and I found it sits on 10’oclock to 8o’clock position.
    Just put the watch parallel to the coil post in the middle of the Oral-B charger unit as close as possible to that inducing coil inside the watch.

  4. I’m going to try my wife’s Philips SonicCare on my Seiko Kinetics, any advice on watch placement and do you have an update on the amt of time to leave it charging for? most of my watches are near dead charge, Thanks!
