Dead from not using

Zombirella Zombirella
Is it common for a rechargeable to to go dead if it's been weeks without use? I guess what I'm basically more worried about is, is it okay to let that happen? Will it have any affect on how long (years) it will last?

I think I remembering reading in some reviews that some do lose their charge after awhile of not being used, I just can't remember exactly.

Thanks!

Yes this happens. My We-vibe II is said to last 2 months on "standby". The battery just drains itself I guess... I can't offer any insight regarding the long-term effects on the battery though. I never really thought about it. I'm interested if anyone else knows though.

I've got an Alia from Lelo that sometimes goes a few months between uses, and it never really seems to lose its charge. Some of my Fun Factory toys also tend to get a few weeks between each use, and they're fine.

I think the charge might go down over time, but very slowly. It might depend on the manufacturer and model, though, and perhaps also the precise charging method (like plug-in vs. magnetic). No clue what the long-term effects might be.

All batteries that are installed slowly leak their charge and weaken - long enough and they are dead.

The question about is it OK - that's hard to answer because there are so many different rechargeable batteries, lithium-ion, lithium-polymer, Ni metal hydride, etc. My only suggestion is use them more often!

I'm so afraid of getting too many rechargeables... I have a WeVibe and two Jopen Vanities that are rechargeable and I love, and an FOU and a Sasi too, and I'm so paranoid that I'm going to ruin their batteries. I am way more cautious about buying rechargeable vibes than I am with battery-powered vibes or dildos. Thank goodness the Jopen Intensity is battery-powered---that 's my favorite toy with a motor, and I'm glad I won't be able to mess up its battery ever.
