Rechargeable batteries?

Nashville Nashville
I love to promote rechargeable batteries not only because they save money but because they save the environment.

Eden sells batteries and also an AC adapter but what would be even better is if you guys sold rechargeable batteries and chargers. I'm not sure if they'd be a big seller but I just think it would be a fabulous idea, maybe that's just me.

That is a good idea, I'm all about rechargeables too.

I was told not to use rechargeable batteries in my sex toys. Not to use any alkaline batteries for that matter. I was told that using carbon based batteries. I don't know if its true but my local shop told me that it would help make my toys last longer.

Told to use carbon based batteries.

I hate it when that happens!

Interesting, I haven't heard much about that. I'll be back after some research on the subject.

Thanks Cock Wrangler! I don't even have normal batteries in my house, that would be really depressing. I hate the thought of batteries that have to be thrown away.

That's interesting that they would suggest carbon based batteries.
Here's a quote from the Wikipedia article on AA batteries:
"Primary (non-rechargeable) zinc-carbon AA batteries of 400–900 milliamp-hours capacity are commonly made using Leclanché cell technology. Zinc-chloride batteries of 1000 to 1500 mAh are often sold as "long life" or "heavy duty". Alkaline batteries from 1700 mAh to almost 3000 mAh cost a little more, but last proportionally longer."
All single use AAs have a nominal voltage of 1.5V, so I am not sure why they would say zinc-carbon batteries are the best to use for long life of your toys. Zinc-carbon has the lowest mAh rating which means they have the shortest life of any of the AAs. One might try to claim that the lower rating means it provides less current, but the current draw is really based on the motor not on the battery.
Rechargeable batteries have a nominal voltage of 1.2 V, so they might not be able to provide the voltage that a given motor needs which may lead to an early death for the motor.

Interesting. I wasn't sure if it had any truth behind it. I never did like rechargeable batteries. After awhile it seems that they just become a bigger hassle because toward the end of their life spend they stop holding a good charge.

I couldn't tell the difference in power when using the carbon batteries. I still wonder if I tried alkaline batteries if my vibrator would have stronger vibrations. I will do an experiment for you and see if I really can tell the difference.

I'll get back to you and let you know how it goes!

I think the point of what I wrote before is that the voltage in the single use batteries is the same which since they are being connected across the same motor (resistor) they will provide the same current. The difference is the ones with the lower mAh ratings will not last as long.
The rechargeable batteries are lower voltage which means lower current. In other words, single use batteries will always provide the same vibration but will only last as long as the mAh rating allows. The rechargeable batteries will probably have lower vibration.

There is a topic floating around about batteries preferred and there are some comparisons between rechargeable and disposable. While I like the idea of rechargeable, it seems like they just don't have enough power for some toys. Also, I've never seen any electronic device that did not warn against using rechargeable batteries. Why is that?

Not all electronic devices warn against using rechargeable batteries, only those that are not designed to use them. Some devices that come to mind that are often designed to use disposable batteries include digital cameras and MP3 players. Most sex toy manufacturers are not going to spend the time and money to determine if their toys can be used with rechargeable batteries, so they just warn against using them.

I've never had a problem using rechargeable batteries in anything, whether it is my camera or a sex toy. Even though I'm a power whore through and through, I don't think the small amount of lost power is enough to use regular batteries instead of rechargeables. I am not a "green freak" either. I like the idea that it is good for the environment, but honestly, I use rechargeable because they are cheaper in the long run. And when it comes to getting the most power from a toy, I reach for my Hitachi anyway.

I prefer to use rechargeable as well for the green and money aspect.

I wish EF would carry rechargeable AAA and AA batteries & I'd buy a charger for each kind.
Was planning on buying a set of rechargeable ones and a charger for my mom this season anyway.
