A Classic PowerhouseA good first vibrator for anyone looking for external stimulation. It's great for clitoral stimulation, or for the nipples or penis.
Single AA battery
The business end of this vibrator has three metal knobs to deliver stimulation directly to your clitoris. The vibration can be felt throughout, but it's strongest on these metal bits. The vibrator also comes with a plastic cap that can fit over the end of the vibrator. This cap provides a different texture, made up of a dozen pointy nubs, which provides a somewhat different sensation.
The toy's small size makes it easy to conceal, and also makes it easy to pack for traveling. (Just be sure to take out the battery, so it doesn't turn on unexpectedly!) It has a relatively nondescript appearance, so it's not immediately obvious as a sex toy.
The non-threatening appearance also makes it a good toy to introduce to a partner who may be intimidated by a larger toy, or toys with an anatomical shape.
The vibrations are quite strong, especially for a toy which uses only a single AA battery! This is probably due to the use of a high quality motor. This toy is manufactured in Japan, where they tend to use higher quality components.
The single speed is mid-ranged. It's deep, but it's not annoyingly buzzy either. It's a pretty good place to start if you don't know what kind of vibrations you prefer. It is somewhat noisy, as hard plastic vibrators are apt to be. Also, the vibrations shake the entire toy, so after prolonged use you may discover your hand starting to become numb.
This toy is not waterproof, unfortunately. So be careful not to get water inside it when cleaning it, and don't use it in the shower or tub. There are several other Pocket Rocket toys on the market which are waterproof, so if that's something you desire in a vibrator, be sure to buy one of the waterproof models instead of this one.
Hard plastics such as ABS are compatible with all types of lubricant, so you can use your favorite lube, whatever that might be.
The packaging would not be terribly convenient for storage, nor is it a particularly attractive as a gift, but it's inoffensive and gets the job done. The marketing text is rather uninformative, aside from saying that it's made from phthalate-free ABS plastic and warning the consumer to avoid submerging the toy in water. But a lack of useful information is the tradeoff for being inconspicuous. The toy is easy enough to figure out, so it's probably a good choice.
