We agree with your complaint and consider a design of planned obsolescence an insult to both consumer pocketbooks and the environment. However, we can't say that this approach is unique to just Oral-B. Sonicare products get a "fail" in this regard too.

You seem well versed on what your options are. But for others, we discuss Oral-B battery replacement here.

Planned-obsolescence design is just another reason to follow this page's suggestion. Buy the cheapest model that meets your needs and nothing more.
