Quip Toothbrush Review – Much Improved

Quip Toothbrush Review – Much Improved

Hey, how’s it going guys? This is Dave2D. So, last year we did a review of a toothbrush by a company called Quip. They’re based out of New York, and I didn’t love the product, it was pretty good, looks really nice, but I kept it around at work, just because I wanted a toothbrush at work, and I continued to order refills for it, just because it was convenient. The last refill that came in, came with a free upgrade to their second generation toothbrush, much improved, hence this second review. So, Quip makes electric and manual toothbrushes that come in different colors and stuff, but they sell them via a subscription service, so you order toothbrush from them and if you want every three months or so, they’ll send you a new head and/or toothpaste, if that’s what you’ve ordered. Now the one I have is the electric version and it costs $40. When it comes in, you get the toothbrush and a holder inside a travel case or like a travel tube, some toothpaste and some pamphlets on dental care and stuff. The handle is aluminum and it feels surprisingly well-made, like I don’t know about the plastic ones, but the metal handles have a really nice way to them. They’re densely packed, right? There’s a motor and a battery in a really small metal tube. Now, I know, it’s just a toothbrush and a lot of people don’t care about this kind of stuff, but I think they did a really good job on the aesthetics. The holder doesn’t use sticky tape, it’s actually a reusable suction mechanism super easy to install and if you ever want to move it around you can. It’s also a better holder than the old one, it drains better and the bottom pops off, so it’s easier to clean. The heads now snap off instead of being a pull off and they feel much more secure when they’re attached. The mechanism on the inside is quite different from before. So, this new one has a few more O rings that make it waterproof, but the most significant improvement is how the vibrations get to the bristles. I’m not sure exactly what they did. But it’s a stronger vibration at the head which I assume does a better job cleaning your teeth. It still uses a triple-a battery that lasts around three months. And I’ve been using a rechargeable battery with no problem. The brush heads have some soft rubber bristles things around the edge. Now the whole thing doesn’t spin, they just kind of vibrate when you brush. This new version gives a really solid brushing experience. It actually feels like any top name brand vibrating toothbrush, but it looks a lot nicer. It also has a tongue scraper and a two-minute timer. The toothpaste is a pretty standard minty flavor and it’ll last you around three months for the tube. Now the equip subscription service itself, I used to think it wasn’t that useful, because really how hard is it to get a toothbrush and a toothpaste wherever you want to North America. But I will say this: ever since I’ve had the Quip and the convenience of just having the heads delivered to work, every three months, I have never once missed brushing my teeth after lunch not even once in a year. It’s kind of weird like I normally don’t have compliance issues with brush my teeth, but normally I wouldn’t brush my teeth after lunch at work. It’s just the way it is, but now that they’re here and now that the heads are there, I just use them. The other thing is if you’re looking for a modern looking toothbrush like an electric toothbrush, that doesn’t have a charging cable and stuff, this is like the only good one out there. That’s the end of this video. I hope you guys liked it. Give me some thumbs if you liked it, subs if you loved it. It’s been nice. See you guys next time.

  1. +Dave Lee have you ever heard of Amabrush? It's like a 10 sec Toothbrush which brushes every tooth at the same time.
    As I heard it's from an Austrian invented, so I'm kinda proud^^
    Hopefully you see this and maybe you can check'em out


  2. I use Boka, which is a bigger sonic toothbrush that is meant to be easier on the gums, not to mention the fluoride-free, non-toxic toothpaste that comes with it.

  3. I genuinely love Dave's chill vibe to his videos. It's Incredibly refreshing in comparison to all of the 'in your face' you-tubers that you can't escape from these days.

  4. I am a mechanical design engineer. I ordered one of those tooth brushes because it sounded too good to be true. After testing it and taking it apart, I was right: it's not true!

    1) It's just a regular toothbrush with a fancy, sleek design. If that's what you want to pay for then go for it! Waste your money!

    2) The toothpaste (part of the subscription package) is just a regular toothpaste!

    3) The vibration is in the handle, and barely translate to the toothbrush's head which means it numbs your fingers and damages your nerves but won't do anything to your teeth!

    4) It's a gimmick. The only reason they are selling it because it's the "iPhone or toothbrushes".

    5) They make their money from the industrial design aspect, emotional appeal, and monthly subscription (and they know it! They are not idiots! They know the vibration is only in the handle…but people are buying it so why bother make an honest product that works which might compromise the industrial design and emotional appeal which is their selling point!)

    6) Don't be a fool, go buy a working product from Oral-B that offers the same feature of peeping every 30 seconds, etc, etc, etc, but that's true sonic or oscillation toothbrush and not a hand vibrator!

  5. A subscription based toothbrush? Lul. Just buy like a 6 pack of heads at Costco for your sonicare and you don’t have to deal with that bs. Is 18 months of brush heads too difficult and inconvenient?

  6. I just purchased the metal Slate Quip and I love the looks, feel, and simplicity of it however as a long time Oral B user I don’t really feel it cleans my teeth as well but I’ve only used it once

  7. Why the hell do you brush your teeth at work? Why the hell do you brush your teeth at work? The bathrooms full of poop and pee and, now you’ve rubbed that on your teeth, like you’re gonna kiss someone at three.

  8. Hey Dave do u have a referral code?! I’m about to purchase my 1st one and I wanna give u the $5 credit to ur acct! Lemme know 👍🏾✨

  9. @dave Lee – how much does the head vibrate for you when you are brushing your teeth? My Quip doesn't really feel like it's moving at all, it basically feels like all the vibration is within the medal housing and not at the brissles 🙁

  10. STOP wasting the damn water….So; another lame piece of plastic crap trash! Thanks for letting me know-another marketer thinks were that gullible. Sometimes I think we really suck!

  11. Is this toothbrush Bluetooth compatible? Will it send me a text to let me know when I need to replace the battery? These IoT details are important in the Toothbrush 3.0 era. It would be fantastic if my smart tv could give me a crawler at the bottom of the screen that reads, "Your toothbrush needs new batteries. You have approximately 12 uses remaining."

  12. Um, it started with intro music, then when the "host" appeared, complete silence/ Did something happen to the video, or my sound card?

  13. I like your simple and quick review as I didn't want to watch 10 min video on this, but I'm not happy with your statement "has better vibration than V1 and I would assume that's better cleaning for your teeth". You could've done a quick research how that helps your teeth instead of "assuming" it's good for your teeth. I think it would've been more convincing if you provided evidence and your research

  14. i just got one and i watched this to make sure it was working right since the top wasn’t spinning…turns out it’s not supposed to spin lol

  15. Am I the only one who thinks it looks like a vibrator. I mean it vibrates and the head has a motor and it looks like a fuckin dildo
