Rechargeable, all the way! If there's a toy I like the look of and it isn't, I still get it though and use my rechargeable batteries!

Then some toys have those weird batteries that are used in like hearing aids and last time I checked those weren't as easily rechargeable

either or. the rechargeable option is nice while the battery is working and holding a charge, but when it goes out you will have to toss the toy or try to find a way to change out the battery with a new one. Which could be impossible.

Definitely prefer rechargeable, but regular batteries aren't a deal breaker either.

I prefer rechargeable toys over ones that are powered by regular batteries.

I definitely prefer rechargeable though My battery Mystic Wand still uses the same batteries for the past 3 months and is powerful enough for me for pre-stimulation. No wand, not even the Hitachi brings me to climax, for me they're warmer uppers.

Rechargeable, no doubt about it. They're always stronger, usually last longer too.

Now that I finally started buying rechargeable batteries, I don't really care all that much, to be honest. Battery-powered toys are usually a lot cheaper, so I'm actually more inclined to purchase those as long as I have extra rechargeables lying around.

(except I've now somehow ended up with way too many extra AAAs & I need some more AAs...need to find a friend that wants to trade! lol)

I prefer toys that take batteries because I have rechargeable batteries now. They are often cheaper and since I don't live alone I couldn't charge them at night. Also many of the rechargeables you have to charge it for some many hours before you can even use it the first time. Even when you have it charged all the way some only last about an hour on high before it dies, not my idea of fun, I don't even charge my phone everyday so I certainly don't want to be charging a toy everyday. It would cost me more to keep recharging a toy than to use my rechargeable batteries since I can take those out.
Also they have different requirements like "don't use while charging", "can only be used by being hooked up to a wall", and other things. Also if you forget to lock the toy it can accidently go off on itself, I'd rather just be able to take out the batteries of something. Plus I've broken ipod chargers before so I don't doubt me being able to break a chard of one of those and if you got something like a fun factory they have a special kind of charger that you can't just get anywhere.
To me it's more of a inconvience but I guess I can see why some people like it. They don't want to waste batteries but realistically you can get a charger and 8 AAA and AA for around 26 dollars if you want to go the rechargeable battery route. Also would not get a toy that has weird batteries like watch batteries unless it was a cock ring and wouldn't be used that often.

next time make it a poll! rechargeable all the way EXCEPT that if you use rechargeable batteries then you dont have to worry about throwing the toy away when longterm longevity of the lithium battery lets you down

I wish I was your friend, I don't use my AAs and need more AAA ;P

I have a variety of both and don't really have a preference of one over the other.

I definitely prefer rechargeable, but my partner and I have rechargeable batteries too. He uses them for his xbox controller, and I use them for my sex toys

Rechargeable. I have battery toys, but much prefer the rechargeable ones. Mine as well go green! And it saves money and makes travel easier.

Rechargeable! I love just being able to pick up and know I can use it (even if I have to wait 20 - 30 minutes). Picking up batteries from the store would kill the mood, you can do other things while just waiting to charge.

Rechargeable by far. I only have one battery-powered vibrator that gets any use anymore.

Rechargeable has saved me soooo much money. I'd be reluctant to buy a battery operated toy anymore.

That's pretty much my point of view, too.

Also, it depends what kind of battery a rechargeable toy has, and how you treat it. Treated wrong, rechargeable toys won't last nearly as long. And they seldom, in my experience at least, come with good instructions.

NiMh batteries, which are in less-expensive rechargeable toys, have to be charged and discharged (used) regularly (at least every 30 days), or they will stop holding a charge at all in a VERY short time.

Lithium-ion batteries, which are in more-expensive rechargeable toys, don't need to be charged and discharged as often, but they should be recharged long before they run out of juice, or again, the life is shortened (running them all the way down once in a while is OK, even good).

Whichever type of battery is in the toy, the battery can only be charged and discharged about 500 times (although manufacturers will claim up to 1000 times). That's why we haven't bought any rechargeable toys yet.

We prefer plug-ins.

While my current collection is made up largely of battery operated toys i favor my rechargeables over most of the ones that take batteries.
