The FlexCare series of sonic toothbrushes is one of Philips Sonicare's top-tier lines. If you are the type of person who must have a top-of-the-line brush with all-the-bells-and-whistles, then a Philips Sonicare FlexCare HX6982/10 with UV Sanitiser will likely make a great choice for you.
The FlexCare brushes offer 3 brushing modes (Clean, Sensitive and Massage) and 2 pre-configured brushing routines (Max Care, Go Care). They also feature Sonicares Easy-start, Smartimer and QuadPacer functions.
They utilize Sonicare's newer-design, snap-on brush heads and feature a rechargeable lithium ion battery and multi-voltage charger. Due to their improved design, they create a lower level of operational noise and vibration than other Sonicare models. The recharging base of the FlexCare RS930 includes an integrated UV (ultra-violet light) brush head sanitizer.
The FlexCare line of brushes also features some elaborate brushing actions that Sonicare terms "brushing routines." One of these routines is the Max Care. When it is selected, the toothbrush will operate in Clean mode for thirty seconds followed by fifteen seconds of Massage mode. This cycle is repeated four times, for a total operating time of 3 minutes.
The FlexCare toothbrushes also offer the Go Care routine. Evidently, this brushing routine is intended for people who are on the "go" and in a hurry. In this setting, the toothbrush operates in Clean mode for one minute, and then turns off. I find disappointing that Sonicare has created a feature that seems to promote one-minute brushings.
