Your Battery Rec's.

Wow, I can't think that this has been a secret to anyone else but me -- but I finally noticed *today* that all batteries are not created equal.

Same toy, two batteries. One was a standard Energizer AA battery, the other battery was a Durcell Power-PIX battery.

The toy was a good 30% stronger with the power-pix battery. oO It's noticeably stronger and louder, as if it were a whole different toy.

I'm really impressed. I only bought the power-pix because it was on sale.

I wonder if they make rechargables that are this powerful?

That's a good question! I too am interested in this question because, I've heard that rechargeables suck in some toys and you're better off to go with disposables. I just wonder if it was the particular brand of rechargeables...... Glad to hear that the Duracell Power-PIX batteries work well! I might have to give those a try! =)

After a bit of googling and whatnot, I've 'discovered' that Powerpix is a newly formulated battery that outputs approximately twice the power as other batteries in the same size, and supposedly also lasts longer.

I also discovered a few interesting articles about rechargable batteries. One article states that non-recharables are like 'long distance runners' in that they run hard, slow down, and then stop -- while rechargables are like a car full of fuel, they'll run well and then stop abruptly when empty. I thought that was an interesting analogy.

I also found this article interesting:

I'm going to have to try out these new hybrid batteries. My rechargables are years and years old now. I'm surprised they're still functional. I got them back in the day, when a pack of 4 AA recharables easily ran $30-40 dollars. They definitely paid for themselves at this point.

My vibe became a different vibe when I put in industrial batteries vs. rechargeable. I can't handle the high setting anymore! Let me know what works best for you....

I just bought a few of the Hybrios mentioned in the article. I'll probably have to start a new post about 'em when they arrive, but I'll definitely let you know.

I bought a couple AAA Power-Pix and plunked them into my newly purchased bgee. It's defininately more powerful.

I did notice, when I put it in my CROTCH massager, that it got hot really really fast. I suppose that's to be expected. So, I may not put it in my favorite toys, depends on how they handle 'em.

Just throwing this out there... but mixing batteries is never a good idea. If your toy takes 2 batteries make sure to put 2 of the same inside instead of having 2 different ones.

I generally use rechargable toys (cheaper to maintain, and happier for the environment!), but when I do use batteries, I try to use the rechargable kind, and they seem to do pretty well. Most recently though, I tried out some energizer batteries in Sally Seal, and they gave it quite a kick!

*nods* I own very few vibrating toys. I just don't like 'em. However, of the toys I own, only two of them use batteries. One of them is my favorite, and I actually haven't had to change the batteries on that thing since I've owned it. The other? Same deal.

Oh, wait! No. I forgot. I impulse-purchased a new toy at a walk-in store that took batteries. A bgee. It takes AAA batteries and I don't own recharables for it.

I haven't bought recharables in so long. I get such a kick out of research. I figured, someone had to have something useful to input on my newest happy fixation.

Wait, I forgot to ask. You said you use recharables and are happy with it, since I'm asking for recommendations, could you name names and tell me if you like 'em?

Why? Is there a good reason for that or is it a marketing scam to get us all to be brand devotees?

If I've got something big planned, I start with fresh batteries. It makes a huge difference. But *shrug* probably not many people masturbate for an hour solid like I've been known to do?

The batteries can leak if you mix different battery types in a device. For example, don't mix NiCads and alkalines. Also, don't mix batteries of the same type in different states of freshness because they can leak as well and ultimately can destroy the toy.

I find that a lot of the digital type batteries work better than standard so instead of regular Energizer you might user the E^2 type or instead of Duracell try the Ultra
