Laifen Wave toothbrush review

I both love and hate the Laifen Wave toothbrush that they sent me to review. On one hand, it is technically superior to the high-end toothbrushes that sit on my bathroom counter from brands like Oral-B and Philips Sonicare. On the other hand, it just feels like exactly what it is - a sub $100 product bridging the gap between the tech world and the tried and true oral care market. With that being said, this really isn't a problem or a criticism. At this price point (currently $69.99), it makes for an excellent product that I can keep in my backpack and if I leave it behind at a hotel somewhere, it isn't that big of a deal compared to my $200+ toothbrush I use currently.

About Laifen

Established in 2019, Chinese brand Laifen Tech regularly pushes the boundaries of innovation in the personal care appliances industry. Its high-performance products are now found in over seven million households globally. This tech innovation giant has redefined industry standards, creating an exceptional user experience that's both practical and luxurious. Laifen's commitment to advancing personal care technology stems from the belief that everyone deserves the best and they are proving to be a disruptor in the market - just as other Chinese tech companies have for audio and drones. This commitment has led to a global reach that continues to spread.

The company is dedicated to challenging itself to improve and innovate, ensuring that its products don't just meet but exceed customer expectations.

In addition to the Laifen Wave toothbrush that we're reviewing today, they also make the Laifen Swift hair dryer - a product that similarly feels like a personal care product made by a tech company. Seriously, between their focus on eco-friendly packaging, the design aesthetic, and a focus on integrating tech features like a mobile app to change settings, I'm surprised that these guys aren't also making earbuds or phones.

Review Of The Laifen Wave Toothbrush

If you're a tech enthusiast who frequently values eco-friendly options, the Laifen Wave Toothbrush, with its biodegradable packaging and high-performance features, might just be your new favorite gadget. It's got a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked, and a 1-year limited warranty. For what it is, the product is pretty great and I'm confident you'll love it as much as I do.

In many ways, any complaints that I might have here feel very similar to my perspective on Sony digital cameras a few years ago vs my tried and true passion for Canon's DSLRs. The tech here is generally better, but the pace of innovation doesn't always allow for the first couple of generations to have the same level of polish that the engineers invested in the tech side of product development.

The package comes with an eco-friendly box and the toothbrush itself, no power adapter is included. Instead, you get a Laifen Wave Magnetic Charger to USB-C Cable, encouraging you to use existing power adapters. For some folks, this might be a drawback, but personally, I appreciate it since it means I can charge it easily at any number of spots in my house where I have USB-C charging ports. However, realistically this won't be often since it claims a 30-day battery life based on typical usage patterns.

It also has a "travel mode" where you can turn it off so that there's no accidental button presses that might turn it on. However, it doesn't include a travel case to keep the device and brush heads protected - though you can easily buy a toothbrush travel case on Amazon to take care of that problem.

Finally, as mentioned previously, the product offers some pretty advanced technology that exceeds most of what is available on the market today - even at significantly higher price points. This includes a 6.1W sonic motor when most other brushes only feature 2.0W, 66,000 vibrations per minute, and a 60° servo system that allows for a much more complete brushing experience.

Design-wise, it feels solid—exactly how you might expect it to from the photos. It has a good weight, and while the motors are powerful, the vibration isn't that bad. It's certainly okay for most adults, though some children might have issues with it. This isn't for them; it's for you.

The mobile app is good. However, while some might consider it a positive feature, I prefer buttons. I don't want to have to whip my phone out to adjust settings. 

That said, though, those are just my personal thoughts, and others seem to disagree. The user feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and it's easy to see why. From its comfortable design to its impressive 60° oscillation range, it's a gadget geek's dream toothbrush. If you are an iPhone lover, then this is the toothbrush for you. Try it out; you won't be disappointed.

The Wave is available in ABS White, Aluminum Alloy, and Stainless Steel and starts at only $69.99 for the plastic version that we tested.
