Mornwell D52 Handheld Water Flosser

This is the latest handheld water flosser from Mornwell and is in part an upgrade from the earlier D50 model but there are several changes between the two. Priced at £22.99 on Amazon the D52 is actually a pound cheaper than the D50.

In the attractive mid-market product box was the flosser itself, a USB power cable, three standard heads, a tongue cleaning head, and a User Guide. The User Guide is large, well printed and easy to read and I enclose a scan of it in my unboxing video.

Build quality seems fine for the price and I was pleased to see that it uses a USB power source, which makes it great for taking on holiday as no mains plugs or adapters are needed. It is a pity though that it uses a non-standard socket on the flosser end rather than a normal micro-USB. Lose the cable and the flosser is useless. It is IPX7 waterproof so it can be used with safety in the bathroom.

Using the device is easy enough. On the front are two large buttons, one for power Off/On, the other to toggle through the three cleaning modes: standard, soft and massage (pulsating). There are LED lights to indicate the selected mode and the pitch of the motor varies in intensity between modes so you easily know which is selected. The device will switch off after two minutes if the current mode is not changed. The mode selection lights are also used to indicate charging: flashing when charging, solid when charging completely. Sadly, the device will not work when charging.

As a long-term user of these devices I was pleased with the power of the device, often battery powered flossers can only manage a rather feeble flow, not so here. I usually use it in standard mode and switch to soft or massage modes for the gums. The extra large 300ml water tank is more than enough for a cleaning session and can be quickly refilled from the tap. One battery charge is enough for a couple of weeks of normal use.

What are the differences between this and the D50? This one uses a USB charging cable rather than an induction base, it has a 300ml rather than 150ml tank, it comes with four heads rather than two and of course has a different appearance.

This is an excellent device, works well, and compares well to similar units from high-end rivals.
