Usually when we get started I keep at least 2 vibrators next to the bed. That's the only way I can get off easily. I can't finish from my partners hands or mouth, I can finish with my hand but it's extremely hard and often doesn't even work.
The two toys I prefer to keep by our bed now are my MiMi and Salsa. Sometimes I'll start with my salsa and sometimes even the lowest setting is too strong for it to get me off. In that case I will switch to my MiMi. I haven't had a rechargeable toy die on me yet but if I did I would definitely just switch it out.
