The low mode should be lower.

I did this with my razor too, by plugging in an 18650 in a place of an AA.

Now? A 15 min job turned in a 5 min job because of how powerful it is.

It now pushes 2A instead of 1.3A, at a higher voltage too. It also has higher capacity too, so that is a plus.

I would not try putting cells in series though. Way too dangerous.

My Sonicare toothbrush has an inaccessible li-ion cell. Its most likely an 18650 cell. Too bad I can’t swap it out for a fresh one when its time is up.

Edit: I was wrong. It is actually a 14500 cell. It requires resoldering to swap out. PITA!

Did you get inside or find info online or something?

I tried to put new batteries in an old Sonicare with NiCads. Had to break open the case. The 2 batteries were mega-epoxied in. No way to change them.

No more difficult than using a manual toothbrush. I think the electric one may actually be easier.

I used to have an Oral-B one in the past. The Sonicare diamondclean is way better, IMO.

@chinooker, I would advise you to try an electric razor that is usually powered by AAs with 14500s.

That will blow up away.

Don’t try turbocharging a bidet with a waterjet…

Of course, don’t use 14500s in series, that would be just dangerous.

I used to replace batteries in rechargeable items like cordless razors and stuff.

Usually a pair of NiCd cells. Occasionally NiMh. The fun ones had LiFePO4, but the place I worked didn't carry replacements for those. Would have been easy enough to do, though.
