    Waterpik Introduces a water flosser for the road.

    I saw this new device several weeks ago at a Waterpik Press Event. I've been using a Waterpik for probably more than 50 years. (Lots of different models, of course.) This new one has ultra-compact and convenient design. Dubbed the Waterpik Sidekick Water Flosser, it's great for travel and makes it easy to water floss anywhere, anytime. As you see in my video it collapses easily for storage and fits in almost any purse or briefcase. It comes with a new flossing stylus with integrated classic tip and swivel handle. The tips are not changeable, so this is designed for a single user. The company says it removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas. One neat feature is the global voltage plug. (The unit is not battery powered.) At first I thought they left the plug out of the box, but then I discovered it stores in the base of the unit and is held there magnetically. So techie! Kit includes storage case, flossing stylus, 13 ounce (400 ml) water reservoir, global voltage (100 240VAC, 60/50Hz) plus, and 3-year warranty. It ships in white, black (my favorite) and I believe there is a rose and white version too. MSRP is $129.99, but on 4/13/18 it was $110 on Amazon, and there was a $15 off coupon available, which would drop the price to $95.00. Prices on Amazon can change daily however.
