Summarized Consumer Feedback and Rating

We went through consumer feedback and ratings of each Waterpik cordless water flosser available, and the chart below summarizes their pros and cons and ratings.

    
Pros
Cons
Bottomline

WP-360W
great portable design, jet stream is very powerfulpoor battery quality, eventually refuses to charge, doesn't hold much water in the tankgood while the unit is new and the batteries are fresh

FLA-220
ideal for people with braces, not very expensive, easy to use and operatereplacing the tips is an ongoing expense, weak tips, not that powerful because it runs on AAA batteriesit's not that powerful, but it's portable and easy to pack

WP-440 FFP
comes with a sonic toothbrush, easy to usecan be messy to use, can develop molds, not that powerful after a few months,

FLW-110
makes flossing easy, non-flossers can be convinced to floss everyday because of thisdoes not get to areas in the back of the mouth, not as strong enough to clean in between teeth, great for cleaning between teeth but doesn't take the place of floss for reaching under the gumline

Bottomline – Not Top-Rated

Surprisingly, ALL these cordless water flossers from Waterpik (WP-360W, WP-440, FLW-110, and FLW-220) were given a low rating by consumers who tried and tested these products. Compared to their Waterpik countertop counterparts, this score is not impressive.

Should you get one? Based on the ratings and not-so-good feedback, we say consider other brands of cordless water flossers first such as the 2nd Generation – Oral Irrigator by ToiletTree Products and the Panasonic Oral Irrigator EW-DJ10-A.
