Thailand hotel built-in dual voltage converter in bathroom doesn’t charge toothbrush. What am I doing wrong?

I am now living in Thailand and am staying at a gorgeous executive serviced apartment that has a built-in voltage converter that one can go between 220 and 110 with a flip of a switch. I flipped the switch to 110, plugged in my toothbrush charger base and set the toothbrush in the cradle. The light blinks for about a 1 minute or so to show that it is charging but then stops blinking all together. When I test the toothbrush, it seems to be in working order. Is it still charging when it’s not blinking? Is the charger base broken? I know that the voltage difference will cause things to charge more slowly but I am not sure that it is working here at all. Does anyone understand how this works?

This sounds like a very serious problem. Could be your charger is broken or the converter is broken, ask the management at the apartment to let you try another outlet, or if all else fails, remember to use up and down stokes when brushing. Life’s a bit**. Good Luck

    I would say that once the light stops blinking, the toothbrush is fully charged. You did say it is working order. Plug your mobile phone in to recharge. After it has recharged, it says battery full. At that point it stops charging.
