Batteries: Recharable or Lithium?

I'm new to the vibrator world and so I'm still looking and figuring things out. When I bought my first toy, a 10 speed bullet, the reviews were mostly agreed on the bullet being a battery gussler and since I've only been able to use "cheaper" batteries for the time being, I've been thinking about getting some rechargeable ones. when I went to look though there was a pretty awesome selection of Lithium batteries, which seemed to advise higher and longer lasting power and I started to wonder if Rechargeable was the best route to go.

So I wanted to get others opinions, do you use Rechargeable or Lithium batteries, and if so which ones work best for you, which ones do you think last the longest with the most consistent power supply?

I prefer Sanyo brand Eneloop rechargeables. They have a long life and work spectacularly for toys. They're quite cheap if you can get them at Costco with a coupon.

For the toys of mine that aren't actual rechargeable themselves, I use Energizer rechargeables.

I get a huge pack at Cosco for a great deal even though they are not rechargable.

I am with shentel. We buy costco brand batteries. They are pretty cheap and last as long as the more expensive ones. I have tried the rechargeable batteries a few years back. I did not like how expensive they were. I did not like that the charge lasted about 1/2 as long as regular batteries. And they died after about 6 months, and would not hold a charge any longer.

I tend to use Lithium batteries in my electronics. Out of curiosity I replaced some of the AA batteries in one of my vibrators (which had normal AAs in it, lightly used), and I swear it sounded like it had more power than before.

They last quite a long time, but the power doesn't "fade" like normal batteries. They just quit.

If you're going the rechargeable route you want to get some good rechargeables. Cheap ones don't last.

I've actually never heard of these batteries before! Thanks a lot for the link, I'm really thinking about trying these out

Looks like Costco is a popular route with batteries too x3

They last ...
That is the main thing I was worried about, the fading power. Before if I had rechargeable batteries in something (given they were in a gameboy or walkman) the power just didn't seem to be the same after awhile, even if they did last longer in the overall time length.

Thanks a lot!

Thank you so much everyone! I'm thinking of trying a lithium battery for the time being and then when a little money rolls in getting a good set of rechargeables and I know not to skimp out on the price of the rechargeable set I'll get so that they don't die out and stop charging so soon

I can't believe I never thought to go to Costco
