Step 1: How to open a Quip toothbrush? Locate the two dots at the back of the toothbrush handle. Place your thumb on these two dots while gripping the handle and your other hand holding the brush head.

Step 2: Carefully snap off these two parts away from you to open up the Quip toothbrush. Please note that if you bend the handle or brush head back too far, it could damage your toothbrush and render it useless.

Step 3: To change Quip battery, remove the motor tube from the handle. Use the tiny notch on the top of the motor tube to pull it out, then flip the handle upside down to slide out the old battery and remove it. Remember to dispose of the old battery the right way as it is a hazardous material.

Step 4: Get a new AAA battery and put it upright, so the flat negative end is facing down. Turn the Quip over and insert the new battery with the negative end facing down and the positive side up.

Quip recommends you use a standard AAA battery bought from the store or the battery that comes with your replacement brush head. A good rule of thumb to keeping track of how long they last are about 3 months if used regularly.

Step 5: Return the motor tube by sliding it back into the handle and see if the tiny notches are in the proper place.

Step 6: Realign the brush head back into the handle and press until a click sound is heard, ensuring that it's tightly connected.

Step 7: Press the "Q" symbol to test if your Quip Toothbrush is working properly.

Why is the Quip toothbrush not working after changing the battery?

If your Quip doesn't turn on, try a different Quip toothbrush battery. Remove the first one and insert another into the handle with its flat negative side facing down (make sure that it's inserted correctly). Then put your device back together again to see if this new battery works.

If the new battery didn't work, check if the motor tube is placed correctly inside the handle. Then, make sure the brush head is attached in a way that it doesn't move or turn while brushing.

If you can still not get your Quip to work after trying all these steps, take a photo of the brush components and send it together with the Quip device's order number and the reason why it isn't working to the Quip support site. They may be able to help you out solve the problem.

Is it worth purchasing a Quip toothbrush?

A Quip toothbrush is the most environmentally friendly type of brushing since it will continue to function for a lifetime.

In fact, this also applies to your cover, which will last as long as well!

How to change a Quip toothbrush head?

There are a few ways to change a Quip toothbrush head. One way is to carefully flip the head of the toothbrush so that it breaks into two parts. Another way is to find the small notch on the bottom of the head and use your fingers or a coin to pry it off. Once you have removed the head, rinse it under water and snap on the new one. Be sure to line up the bristles with the grooves on the toothbrush handle.


Quip is a well-known and highly recommended toothbrush that will not only serve you for years to come but also save the environment. Replacing the Quip battery is a pretty simple process that can be done in a few minutes by following the steps mentioned above.
