Goby Electric Toothbrush Review
Goby is a new toothbrush available only online, and it’s a good one. It cleans like a big-name brand brush, but boasts a more moderate price tag. Plus you can opt for a subscription so your toothbrush replacement worries will be no more (if you have toothbrush replacement worries). The brush features two modes -- standard or sensitive -- which we think is sufficient. Our “on” button wasn’t super responsive, but the cleaning power is great.
Goby comes in 4 colors: midnight blue, blue, pink, or orange. Or go with the limited edition All-Black Goby ($60 with subscription). It contains a 2-minute timer, as is standard with electric toothbrushes these days. Your initial toothbrush kit arrives in cool-looking recyclable packaging and contains a Goby brush, round oscillating brush head, USB charging shell, stand, and USB converter. The hygienic stand features a removable tray to easily clean toothpaste build-up. (But be forewarned, the brush doesn’t stand up on its own so you’ll want to keep it in the stand.)
If you opt to subscribe with Goby, you’ll receive new brush heads every 1, 2, or 3 months at a cost of less than $6 per head. Opt for three months, since that is what dentists recommend! A light indicates that it’s been 3 months of use and you need to change the brush head.
When your brush arrives, the company recommends you charge it for 10 hours before use. A full charge lasts about two weeks. Goby is a fantastic brush for the money, and the brush head subscription is convenient. What’s not to love? It’s perfect for the person who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles, and doesn’t want to think about stocking up on brushing supplies. To make the offer even sweeter, Goby also offers a 60 day refund policy.
