The Panasonic Oral Irrigator EW-DJ10-A might not have a cool, brandable name, but it is one of the best cordless, battery powered water flossers that we have found.
While perhaps not as power-packed as a counter-top unit when it comes to power or versatility, this is an excellent product to have if you’re on the go, if you simply do not want to be bothered by the larger footprint of a counter-top unit, or if you do not want to wait for a rechargeable unit to charge. With 2 AA batteries, the Panasonic water flosser is really easy to use and just needs a few seconds while you change the batteries before it is good to go again.
This was definitely made for traveling, people on the go, and those who want to have a good oral irrigator to clean their gums and teeth sufficiently without taking up too much space, being too heavy, or requiring plugs that might not work in other countries (problem if you’re traveling from the States to Europe, for example).
It collapses down into small size that will easily fit into your travel bag (or purse). To use it, you simply pop it up, fill the base with water (it holds about 5.5 oz which isn’t a lot, so you might have to work quickly), click the nozzle into place, and turn it onto one of the two settings. Putting it away is just as simple, you simply click it back down, take the nozzle off, which is easily done with a tiny switch that you press down while removing the piece, and you’re done.
Now, while it does have the two different speed/pressure settings, as you might be able to tell, it isn’t that versatile when it comes to the actual cleaning job it does. On the other hand, it is actually cleans really effectively. You will feel clean, refreshed, and ready to go, so no complaints there. However, because it only has the one tip and two pressure settings, so you won’t be able to fine tune it to just the right setting for you.
Still, it’s surprisingly powerful, very compact, easy to travel with, and actually does the job it was meant to do, with no distracting bells and whistles to get in the way.
A very good 4.2 out of 5 stars on Amazon, with over 1500 4 & 5 star ratings. As something totally different than our top choice, the Waterpik Aquarius, this is a great option and should do the job for you if you travel a lot, or if you just like the convenience and small size of the EW-DJ10-A.
We recommend you check this out, as it is one of the best travel and non-counter-top units we have found. In addition, Panasonic has a great reputation for making great products. Users agree, commenting on the durable build and versatile feature-set as major benefits.
