Top-end models like DiamondClean and Oral B 7000 are among the most efficient and highly advanced electric toothbrushes. Their only con is the above average price which can turn some people off. So, what are some of the best cheap alternatives to top-end devices?

Here is our list of a few budget friendly electric toothbrushes. Surprisingly the first 2 spots are taken by brands that aren’t Braun or Philips. At the time of creating this list, all of the reviewed products on this list costed less than half of the price of the top-end toothbrushes. We will update this list as regularly as possible and if you have a proposition for us, let us know in the comments section at the bottom of this page!

Pursonic S500 Deluxe

S5000 is on our top of our budget-friendly list and surprisingly it doesn’t come from Oral B or Sonicare family. It offers wide range of features and who knows, maybe Pursonic could become a great rival of the top brands in the future.

What we don’t like about it:

  • Design.
