Sometimes Smaller is BetterThis is a pretty strong bullet vibrator which is also the quietest toy I own. It's light, small, and great for pinpoint stimulation. It isn't fancy, but it's fun and easy to use. It would make a great first clitoral vibrator, but it's not only for beginners.
I think the Mini Bullet and Controller is great for either masturbation or couple play, and is especially handy for someone who wants something quiet and discreet. It isn't fancy, but it offers great vibrations in a pinpoint package.
When I first removed the bullet from its packaging, it had a little bit of a plastic smell. This has faded from the bullet itself, but you can still smell it a little on the cord and controller. It's only noticible when you hold the toy right up to your nose.
All in all, the design of this vibrator is purely functional. It''s size and low volume make it perfect for travel.
The vibrations go from medium-low to medium high, and are fairly high-pitched. They are also very quiet-- with a blanket over this toy, I can't even hear myself using it until the highest setting.
This bullet is listed as waterproof, and the battery cap screws on with several turns. There is also an O-ring to keep moisture out. I've used it in the shower with no problems, and in the bath as well, but I would take care to keep from submerging the controller completely. Even when I screw the cap on as tightly as possible, I can still see a slight gap between the cap and the body of the controller, and I'd rather be safe than sorry.
However, this toy comes with NO instructions at all. The controls are pretty intuitive, but if this had been my first ever vibrator I would have liked to know--for instance-- how to open the battery compartment, what to clean the toy with, what kinds of lubricant to use it with, etc. The type of batteries it takes was written in tiny letters on the bottom corner of the package, but that was about the only useful information, and very hard to find.
