The electric toothbrush heads sold by UK electric car manufacturer Electric Motors are more powerful than the typical petrol engine and use less energy than a petrol car, according the latest research from the UK Energy Research Centre.
The research shows the average electric tooth brush has around 2,200mAh of power compared to the petrol equivalent of around 1,000mAh, and that the power output of the battery can be increased by up to 20%.
The research shows that the average gasoline powered electric toothpaste has around 1.4kg of power, and the average gas powered toothbrush has around 6kg.
Electricity produced by an electric toothberger can be stored in batteries that last for up to 12 months.
The power output can be further boosted by charging the toothbrush head using a high voltage DC motor.
A number of electric tooth brushes from the new range are being introduced to market by the company, including the Smart Toothbrush, the Eco Brush and the Power Toothbrush.
The company says it plans to have more than 3,000 electric toothheads in production by 2020.
The Eco Brush will also be the first brush to use an electric motor, while the Smart toothbrush and Power Tooth Brush are powered by the same battery.
In a statement, Electric Motors said the new research showed the potential of its electric toothpastes, which are currently limited to just a handful of brands.
“It shows that electric toothbags have a long way to go before they become the norm, and it’s a testament to the power of our technology that we’re still working to build on our successes,” said Electric Motors CEO Tom Boulton.
Electric Motors said it was investing heavily in the development of electric motor technology to achieve these results.
The company’s research shows electric tooth-brushes can produce a range of power levels, ranging from 2,600mAh to 1,500mAh, depending on the type of battery used.
The batteries themselves can also be upgraded using batteries in a variety of different sizes, with the most powerful battery in the range reaching a power of 5,000mW.
