Battery vs. Rechargeable vs. Plug in?

In your experience, what is the better choice?
Which provides the optimal balance of power and convenience?
Does it depend on the individual toy?

I prefer battery powered toys. They tend to cost less, and you can simply pop in new batteries if it runs out during a session.

It definitely depends on the individual toy, and each type has its pro's and con's.

Plug-ins have the most power (generally), but then you're anchored to a wall.

Battery-powered are portable, but.....you have to buy a ton of batteries. BUT you can easily replace the batteries with no recharge time.

Rechargeables are portable and don't use disposable batteries BUT when they die, they're dead until you recharge them.

I avoid battery-powered toys. It would take a lot to convince me to get one. Where I live, it's just hard for me to get more batteries - so unless I has a huge stock for them, rechargeable/corded is more reliable for me - since even a two hour wait is better than maybe the week or two it would take me to get to the store for more.

Plus, getting rid of dead batteries properly is a pain. I've tried several rechargeable AA battery systems, but I've had problems with them. :/


I don't have a plug-in one yet, but I do want one next !

Try buying rechargeable batteries off the internet?

Also if you don't have internal rechargeable batteries, you don't have to worry about having twenty different chargers sitting around.

Thinking about it, if it wouldn't be too bad for business, Eden should totally sell some and kits.

I would consider buying one with reviews.

I've only used battery operated, but would love to try rechargeable items
