What’s in the box
The toothbrush comes in nice modern packaging and as we are used to from Oclean’s previous products, you’ll find everything you need to get you started right away inside the box.
Inside, you’ll find the sonic toothbrush, 1x brush head, a User Manual, USB-C cable and wall holder. Would you require more/different brush heads, they are available on the company’s online shop.
Oclean X10 Design and overall feel
The very first thought that comes to mind when you take this toothbrush out of the packaging is that it feels like it’s very well made. And it’s true. It seems to be a habit of Oclean that they focus on the quality of the product. After all, they’ve got plenty of competitors so it comes to be no surprise that they have to offer something above standard.
Although this sonic toothbrush is very light, it certainly doesn’t feel cheap in your hands. It’s also wrapped in a single chassis in a likeable matte colour, giving it a rather premium look.
There are not many things on its body. In the front, you’ll find a power button at the top, an OLED display and 2 buttons underneath.
The OLED display is not a touchscreen, for instance, Oclean X Pro Elite or even cheaper X Pro variant offers, although it might be something that significantly distinguishes it from other products, and in a good way, as the screen is usually quite small and not always easily operable. Pressing the two buttons (to select a Mode or Intensity of brushing) will make sure you’ll always select what you need. Sometimes is the old way, the right way.
The X10 is powered by a Maglev Motor giving up to 40 000 rpm while staying relatively quiet at under 45dB. It also comes as no surprise, that it is waterproof with IPX7 certification, so washing the body or using it while in the shower won’t be an issue.
The Oclean X10 is available in 3 different colours – Pearl Grey, Ocean Blue and Coral Pink.
Oclean X10 Modes and features
As mentioned earlier, the Oclean X10 offers different Modes to suit everyone. Its 5 modes are:
- Clean (standard) – the brush exerts even pressure
- White – combines Massage and Cleaning, which, according to Oclean should have a positive effect on removing stains from teeth
- Sensitive – Suitable for sensitive teeth
- Massage – Massage vibrations
- Polish – modes that aim to polish teeth
For every one of the modes, you have the ability to select the intensity of brushing in the range from 1-5.
While trying different modes, a change in the brush behaviour is noticeable and one might assume, it will actually fulfil its promises.
The X10 will also sum up the process of your brushing resulting in an emoji at the end of brushing, depending on how well you brush. This is thanks to an inbuilt gyroscope, that tracks which side of your teeth you brush and will remind you to focus on the part/side you missed, to gain a full 5-star award. It’s a little feature, but there will certainly be a target group for this.
Some of Oclean’s sonic toothbrushes offer a connection to an App on your phone. The X10 does not have any accompanying app to track your progress, although the more I’ve been using sonic toothbrushes, the less I’ve been focusing on the app and I find it a bit redundant anyway. So it’s not something, I imagine, that would be a dealbreaker for many.
Oclean X10 Battery and charging
As mentioned in the beginning, the X10 comes with a USB-C cable, that you can plug into any of your existing phone adapters, laptop, power bank to car socket, due to which makes it a good travel gadget.
The battery in this lasts some long 60 days, and can be charged in just 3.5 hours (perhaps a bit longer from a laptop, power bank or car socket). That is certainly a huge pro, compared to some other devices we’ve seen.
Oclean W10 Pros and Cons
- Straightforward controls
- USB-C charging
- Long-lasting battery
- Quick charge
- Sleek design, 3 colour options
- Higher price
- Doesn’t include any travel case
The Oclean X10 is a nice, simple sonic toothbrush that offers just what you need, without too many features or fancy staff you might actually not even need. It is highly powerful, offering optimal results. It doesn’t have an app to track, but is well made, and offers a long-lasting battery. For those, looking for a simple, sonic toothbrush, this would certainly be a suitable choice.
