Induction Charging ? Answered

OK, I have disassembled a old electric tooth brush and I am trying to reduce the size and one of the things I have deemed unnecessary is the PCB that runs the timer built into the toothbrush. However, one thing I am wary of at this moment is that the toothbrush is a induction Charger which is a A/C and I don't know if I can just remove the board and be OK or do I need to rectify the current into D/C to continue charging the battery. If the latter is the case what do I need to achieve this?

You need a rectifier circuit to turn the AC into DC.

Have a google to find a version that meets your needs, budget and skill.

Yeah I figured this would be the answer, but I am pretty new to this realm of electronics and didn't know if batteries could act as a rectifier. Thanks though this answered my question.

You need DC to charge the tooth brush batter !

AC is the easy (N.Tesla) way to magically magnetically transfer electrical energy into a water sealed hand tool.

That's what I thought. I just didn't know how well a battery would accept A/C. Thanks for the answer. Now all I need to do is find a pitcher....
