A Travel Companion for your Girly BitsOverall, this toy is an excellent travel companion, with its small size, water resistance, various settings, easy-to-clean material, and above average power. I gave this toy three stars, rather than four as a reflection of the poor design in regard to effective insertion and G-spot stimulation. It is much better suited to clitoral play than to insertion, making for explosive clitoral orgasms every time!
Accessing the battery compartment is very easy, as you just twist off the end and the cap will pop free. Inside is a separate, removable capsule which holds the required two AAA batteries. You simply slide it out, pop in your batteries, and slip it back inside, making sure to fit the notches into place and being sure that the end with screws on it is facing towards the battery cap. When replacing the cap, there may be some resistance and a soft clicking or scraping noise as you twist it back on. This is just the spring on the inside of the cap rubbing against the metal end of the battery capsule. That made me a little nervous, at first, but it doesn't seem to have done any damage thus far.
The single push-button controls are extremely easy to use, but I feel it may be more convenient to have the button located on the textured shaft, along the "back" of the toy, where your fingers rest when holding it, rather than having to shift your grip on the toy in order to press the button. Pressing the button will cause a muffled click and will cause the toy to switch to the next setting. Unfortunately, there is not easy on/off button, making this item very risky to use if you lack complete privacy. Sometimes, that's part of the fun, but other times it's downright annoying...I think it would be ideal to change the design of this toy some so that the button to cycle through the settings was on the shaft, with a power button on the end to shut it off quickly if need be.
1 - Deep, low, steady vibration
2 - Slightly more powerful, medium, steady vibration
3 - Strong, high, steady vibration
4 - Strong, steady pulsing, at the level of the third setting
5 - Three repeating pulses, escalating low, medium, high.
The toy is fairly quiet and I feel comfortable using it without worrying about people hearing, as long as the door to my room is closed. It performs flawlessly in water and I have not noticed any signs of moisture inside the battery compartment. Be sure to screw the battery cap on tight to seal it completely.
I store this toy in my underwear drawer, without a special bag or anything to protect it. The material is not sensitive or sticky and the toy's hard plastic build is very durable. You can use any lubricant with this toy, but I prefer to use water-based lubes with all my toys, just to be on the safe side.
Unfortunately, I've noticed, just over the last few days, that if I gently shake the Mini G there is a slight rattling going on inside the tip, which is also evident sometimes when the toy is turned on and vibrating...I'm hoping against hope that this isn't a sign that it's going to kick the bucket soon! :( I'll be heartbroken.
However...I went online immediately after and purchased another. So, that says something about how excellent this toy is...just does not have quite the long life that I wish it had!
