Better than the Average Bullet.

A lovely choice for anyone searching for a body-safe, AAA-powered, brightly colored bullet vibe, Mood Powerful offers very pleasant vibrations (three steady levels and four patterns) in a waterproof package. Whether you want your first bullet to boost PIV sex, or to upgrade a wimpy bullet that came with a bullethole dildo, Doc Johnson delivers with Mood Powerful. Its PowerBullet motor vibrates at non-numbing frequencies, and I'll be using it in sleeves whenever I want extra zing.

Use

A bullet vibrator is an absolute classic. In Mood Powerful, Doc Johnson has put a nice rumbly motor and a AAA battery in a pretty swirly turquoise housing, small enough to grab and go or use between bodies during sex. This pocket-sized vibrator is great for clitoral stimulation, or for any other place you might want a buzz (your nipples, your perineum... thanks to its waterproof seal, I've become a fan of fully inserting it vaginally when I want to turn a page in my book. I think that thanks to the nice quality and body-safe nature of this bullet, it would be a good choice for a beginner who wants to start out on the right foot, or for a discerning user who is on the hunt for a nice battery-operated bullet.

When compared with other bullets I've tried (like the High Intensity Bullet, which numbed me, or the vibe in the Little Secrets Spoon, which had only one speed), I really like the nice rumbly vibrations courtesy of the PowerBulletTM motor and the seven functions. The polyurethane 'velvet coat' finish makes it a pleasure to hold and move against my body, even when slickened.

Material / Texture

Mood Powerful is made of body-safe ABS plastic, and it is finished with a polyurethane coating, giving it a velvety feeling (slicker than matte, but more matte than silken). I enjoy feeling this against my fingertips and the rest of my body. Mood Powerful is available in pink, purple, and charcoal colors, along with the eye-catching turquoise that I have. The turquoise is exactly the shade that those of us who don't like pink have been waiting for in a vibrator---I really hope this color catches on! It is bright and cheerful, and the pale gray swirly accents pair with it nicely. The swirly gray seems to be made right along with the turquoise background, or at least it seems like it's under the PU coating. I couldn't get it to scratch off, so I assume it will last as long as the bullet.

The PowerBulletTM logo is etched somewhat deeply into the side of the bullet, though, and I hadn't noticed that until I dragged it across my labia---so you might want to notice which side that imprint is on and keep that side pointed away from your body.

Design / Shape / Size

Mood Powerful fits into one of two basic categories of bullet vibes---some have internal batteries (and then you can compare those by which type of battery they have onboard), and others have external battery packs hooked up with a wire. While the external battery pack bullets might be the best option for power queens who need more than a single battery to reach orgasm, the simplicity of design and ease of use of the onboard battery type are probably best for the majority of women (those who like the extra boost, but don't need buckets of raw power).

Mood Powerful is built mostly around its AAA power source. It has a diameter of just under 0.75" at the widest, and tapers down to 0.56" at the tip. This is just enough room to fit the AAA battery inside a pretty turquoise plastic housing which helps conduct the vibrations, cradled by a piece of paper helping you with battery alignment while reducing sound. Above the 1.75" battery sits a vibrating motor, which is about 0.75" tall, featuring PowerBulletTM technology. The bullet itself vibrates from top to bottom while it's on, but when you're holding it by the base you can really see the vibrations in the tip of the bullet, where the motor is.

Rounding out the bottom of the bullet is the circuit board (internal) and the button (external) on a screw-off cap secured by a turquoise o-ring, waterproofing the bullet.

The overall length and diameter of Mood Powerful makes it a great choice for dropping in your bag on the go, or holding between bodies during sex to add a little extra boost.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Doc Johnson gave Mood Powerful seven vibration functions. The first three are solid vibrations in low, medium, and high. I believe low would be in the middle of the 2 range, and high is at the very top of the 3 vroom range, nearly to 4. Four patterns follow, one with escalating and deescalating power levels, and then a slow pulse, then a fast pulse, and finally a combination pattern. The power levels of the patterns seem to be in the "medium" section of Mood Powerful's range.

To turn the vibe off, you need to cycle all the way through the seven functions, and a final press of the button will turn it off. Mood Powerful is quite quiet, so discretion won't be compromised as long as your door is shut---and to make things even better, if you press and hold the button for two seconds, no matter where you are in the setting sequence, the bullet will turn right off.

The vibrations of Mood Powerful feel quite nice to my body. They are as deep as can be expected from a AAA battery. When the bullet is placed on my clit, I can feel vibration across a fair portion of my mons. Because the vibrations travel through the whole bullet, your fingers will receive a bit of vibration. I was pleased to find out that mine didn't go numb, though. Once I turned off the bullet, my fingers continued to 'pulse' for a while.

Care and Maintenance

Mood Powerful is a sturdy li'l bullet---its plastic casing seems pretty durable, its polyurethane 'velvet touch' coating means it's not prone to scratches or to picking up lint, and it is waterproof so it's quite easy to clean. Simple soap and water should suffice. The packaging it ships in is too bulky for storage, but mine is able to hold its own in my backpack even without a storage case.

The threads of the battery cap seem very sturdy and reliable as well---I hate having to pay extra attention to avoid stripping plastic threads, so I'm glad this one will protect itself if I get careless.

Packaging

I usually don't have much to say about packaging, but Doc Johnson did a nice job presenting their toy and all of its features in a simple, cheerful box, so I thought I'd share a picture (which serves to give you an idea of size and the pretty turquoise color at the same time).

    • Very informative

Experience

I'm not a very frequent bullet user, and I'm not really sure how most people use bullets, so I thought I'd give a little extra elaboration here. I am able to bring myself to clitoral orgasm using my fingers, and when I use a bullet, I just "do what's familiar" and rub/press my clit with the bullet as though it was an extra, rigid, vibrating finger. I find that when I'm using a bullet, I can slow down my pace quite a bit and still get good results.

I had tried two other bullets prior to this one---the High Intensity Bullet from CalExotics and the Little Secrets Spoon from Tantus. I like Mood Powerful much much better than the High Intensity Bullet. I also prefer Mood Powerful to the one-function bullet that came with my Spoon.

The High Intensity Bullet was a huge disaster for me---its vibrations were high-pitched and buzzy, and numbed my clit so thoroughly that I couldn't even fall back on my fingers to come to orgasm. I was leery of bullets for a while after that, but my experience with Mood Powerful has given me confidence again---bullets can have nice vibrations too.

The Spoon is kind of a specialty bullet, with a squishy silicone overcover, and I actually really enjoyed upgrading the included bullet to the Mood Powerful. It's nice to have a few patterns on call when I'm enjoying the plush silicone cover that lets me have multiple clitoral orgasms.

All in all, if someone was looking for a first bullet, or if someone was looking for a bullet to use in their favorite dildos or sleeves, I would strongly suggest this one. The only people I would say should look elsewhere are those who know they will need more power than can be offered by a AAA battery.

    I discovered on mine that if you hold the button down for about two to three seconds it turns off!!!

    I love the blue of this line!!! And even though it is not my favourite vibe, I think I might be getting one in the blue just because it is such a fabulous colour and at the moment... not many lines have this colour and I love it!!!

    Ooh, that is really good to know! Thanks so much, WomanChina! I really love the blue too. It's funny how much a little thing like color can make me smile... especially this bright blue paired with the neon pearly orange of my Tantus Spoon...
