There are a lot of reasons to choose backpack travelling, which is why there are so many people travelling this way the world. Walking through almost any major city or touristic place, you will see these backpackers with their huge rucksacks. If you have also been contemplating the idea of backpacking through different countries, but are in need of a final push, here are some reasons for why it’s a great idea.
As you know I spend most of my time on the road, travelling and opening the world to myself. Being constantly on the move also requires that I keep my belongings and luggage to a minimum. There is a list of essentials, which are just must haves for any person. Then there are the items that I can choose or not to include them in my backpack. Among the must haves there is the toothbrush. So for quite some time I had been researching different models and different brands to find the best one for my needs.
I have been using an electric toothbrush for many years now and I just don’t feel that a plain old manual toothbrush can give my teeth the quality cleaning they need. Before my adventurous travels begun I used to have an Oral B 5000 toothbrush. However, for travel it seemed like an inconvenient option. To charge it you need to bring with you the base. If you are travelling short term, this brush would suit just fine. The charge can hold for couple of weeks. So you can just charge it full before leaving and it will last you the whole trip. And, it does come with a handy travel case.
However, my trips last much longer than just a couple of weeks. So I was looking for something that wouldn’t include the charging base. I was considering battery operated toothbrushes, but they didn’t seem powerful enough and they don’t have that many features. Finally, I found the Sonicare DiamondClean, which is a relatively new model on the market. You can check it out on www.gethealthyteeth.com.
I have always heard only good things about the brand and the cleaning technology it uses. But the feature I liked most about this toothbrush is the possibility of charging it with a USB cable. The package of the brush includes a convenient travel case. If there are two of you backpacking, then you can benefit from this brush even more, as the travel case also fits two brush heads. So the two of you can just use the same toothbrush handle, but interchange the brush heads.
Charging it you can do right in the travel case. You just connect it with the USB cable to your laptop or alternatively plug it into an outlet. Additionally, it comes with a charger glass that uses conduction technology to power up the brush. But for a backpacker that would be an unneeded extra, one that you can do without.
Moreover, this model has powerful cleaning technology and offers different modes. So if you have sensitive teeth or gums, or would like to whiten your teeth, you will have the mode you need for that.
Packing your backpack, you want your items to be as compact as possible and as light as possible. In terms of compactness and lightness, the best option would be a manual toothbrush. But if you also want a brush that would benefit your teeth and make them healthier, then, like me, you should choose an electric toothbrush. So far I have not found a better and more convenient model than the Sonicare DiamondClean.
