What do the battery status lights indicate on my Sonicare toothbrush?

Published on 01 August 2022
The lights and beeps of your toothbrush indicate when it is ready for a recharge. Some toothbrushes have only one indicator light, while others have three. Some toothbrushes do not have a battery light indicator. Follow the standard charging advice as specified in the user manual.
