The G4 Tiger vs The Thrill of the Night

Even with the few con's I've mentioned here, it's telling you something when I still say the G4 Tiger is my go-to vibrator and if I could only pick one vibrator for the rest of my life, I'd pick him.
Published:
Pros:
Getting you off with pin point precision, g-spot orgasm is within reach!

Click n' charge technology is a pain in the arse

Well now that hopefully you've all got "The Eye of the Tiger" in your minds, let us begin!!!

Fun Factory's G4 Tiger is not your average toy. And I should know. My favourite toy was always Fun Factory's G3 Semi Realistic and before that it was the G-Twist. So I've been a fan of this whole line since the beginning!!! And each time the newer model has come out I've been in love!!

The Tiger I find is one of the best go to, and most reached for toy in my Toy Box. For some very simple reasons;

i) the head is almost point like with a pronounced ridge; great for nipple stimulation, and pin point clit stimulation, the pronounced ridge playing over my clit with the matte silicone presents just enough drag
ii) the ridges over my g-spot feel fantastic!!! (although I do have to say I prefer the ridges on the G3 as they are more pronounced and g-spot orgasms came faster and were deeper with the G3)
iii) the flared/rabbit-esque base works great if you are thrusting hard and it lands upon your clit. I'd even say that it could be used anally because of that flared base (shaft at 5inches in circumference and 6inches at the flare)
iv) the control panel is a silicone type material over raised buttons making chances less likely of slippage over the smooth plastic of the handle
v) that magic touch that lights it all up just rocks!!!!
vi) so very quiet with fun patterns and the vibrations are deep and thumpy!
vii) waterproof
viii) he's so totally rechargeable

So there you have it folks... it can be used from beginning to end, and all over.

Material / Texture

With its matte like medical grade silicone shaft you do get a little bit of a drag. As we all know, silicone toys should be used with water based lube... and that is especially true with a matte style of toy.

Now, unlike the Lelo toys (which I believe are just silicone covered hard plastic making their toys very hard) the Tiger is all silicone all the time from approximately half way up. The bottom half of the shaft has the motor so it is still a little silicone squishy but not near as squishy as the top half! It's also a bendy toy too! All this being said, he is not so squishy or too bendy to worry that he might fold on you while playing.
The handle is a white plastic with a silvery plastic on the inside of the loop. Be very careful! The handle is quite literally slippery when wet. Which is why I really really like the buttons covered in silicone... and that the buttons do require a little bit of force to change the settings and power levels. And unlike other toys while thrusting you don't really run the chance of changing the settings!

The charger is fantastic! It's a universal charger, compatible in all countries (100v to 240v) with 50/60Hz. The one thing you might want to be careful of is the actual metal part that plugs in might not be suitable to every country (think Aussie Landers here, you guys might have to get a plug adaptor). It is your traditional plug with a magnet to recharge rather than a plug into the toy.

Come closer. Let me put this up to your nose so you can sniff it. (I promise. I've washed it first) As you can tell, there is no scent, and the colour is a vibrant almost neon red.

Design / Shape / Size

The Tiger, well let me just copy and paste from the info page... in brackets, are the measurements I've taken;

Length:8 3/4" (closer to 9 inches)
Insertable length:6" (5 inches, I don't think you can really insert the flared base, I know I cannot!!!)
Circumference:4 3/4" (4 3/4 inches near the top under the bulge, 5 inches directly above the flared base, 6 inches around the base)
Weight:0.5 lb (I don't have a scale so couldn't check this one out!!!)

His shape is a traditional G-spot curve with a flared base.

Now let's talk about my opinion of the shape and size of the Tiger. I think because of the girth and the size of the toy it's possible for any level of user to use. BUT because of the silicone used, it might require a learning curve to figure out which lube works best for your body and the toy.

With all the toys I have in my Toy Box, and all the toys I've ever seen here at EdenFantasys, if I only had to pick one vibrator for the rest of my life... The FunFactory's G4 Tiger would be the toy I'd pick.

Because of his bright colour, he has to be hidden while not in use. Anyone seeing him on first glance would know exactly what his purpose is. To bring you to various orgasmic highs (as if you had any doubts about that). The Tiger is pretty quiet when you turn him on, but he can get a little on the loud side when you start increasing his power. If you have your door closed and are under the covers (or in the bathtub or shower) you will be ok. (Side note: But just remember to lock the door so no one walks in on you)

Speaking of someone who does travel and who does take a vibrator with her when she travels, it's lockable, and travel friendly. BUT because it only holds a max of a 40minute charge, you'll need to pack the charger.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Tiger on low I really don't know how Fun Factory does it, but the vibrations are actually (for me at least) strongest at the tip and not around the motor. If you want to talk about your proverbial power horse, I can actually feel the vibrations on the lowest setting no less just past my wrist when I am holding onto the toy. As the power increases, the vibrations go no further than my wrist.

As I mentioned above, the pin point and direct clit stimulation by the tip words magic as the power increases or you choose to hit the turbo button and change through the settings. I find that when I am using the toy internally I don't notice the patterns. However, when I apply the tip of the toy to my clit, by golly gee whiz wow wee!!! Talk about feeling those patterns and the vibration levels.

The Tiger compared to the G3 Semi-Realistic Now, I've spoken about the ridges of the G3 and the G4, and now I am going to tell you something else I don't really fancy. The head. Yes, the head is narrow for better pin point and all, but I still prefer the wider head for clit stimulation. And I prefer the more pronounced ridges on the G3 vs the less defined ones on the G4.

Both of these really do not take away from the overall function of the toy itself. And I still say that the G4 is my go too toy. Simply because batteries have gone up in price and yes, the G3 takes AAA batteries whereas the G4 is rechargeable.

Another thing I don't really fancy about the new line from Fun Factory is the horrible click n' charge technology. Yes it is great that I no longer need to think and worry about batteries and making sure I have a stock pile of them in various kinds (seriously, I have enough that would last a family a week remember the Y2K frenzy? I've got more). As I am sure you have read in other reviews, the light once finished recharging doesn't turn off. The magnet is a bitch. You cannot put it near your phone, your computer or even your cigarette lighters without things going fluey. And thankfully I don't have any credit cards or magnetic stripe cards or those would be another thing to worry about.

The battery for me holds a charge of approx 40 to 70 minutes on medium high to high power before I have to recharge it. As the Tiger begins to hit rock bottom of it's charge, approx 5 minutes before it will cut out on you, the lights will blink on and off warning you about it. I have found that there is no other warning such as a decrease in power for example of the battery running out.

Care and Maintenance

I've recently purchased a bottle of Evolved Toy Mist and have been using that to clean all my toys. However, to those that do not have a toy cleaner, hot water and a mild anti-bacterial soap will do the trick quite nicely. Because of all the ridges, the biggest concern regarding the cleaning is making sure you rinse it properly and get around each of the ridges.

Make SURE you clean around each ridge well. Lube and body fluids have a tendency to like to hide right around them.

Even though he is made out of uber safe, medical grade silicone, if you are going to use him up your rear-end, I would suggest a condom, then clean extra carefully.

Unless you do a silicone lube test, I'd only suggest water based lube to be used with the Tiger.

To store him, unfortunately he does not come with a storage bag, I have made my own storage bags for all my toys. I wait till he is dry, toss him in his bag then toss him into my Toy Box. As you have no doubt read in various reviews and on the Forums, when it comes to silicone toys, you need to be careful. Silione+silicone is not like to like as they teach you in chemistry. Make sure you store your silicone toys so they are not touching and be sure not to store him until he is dry.

Fun Factory's instructions say that to keep the battery alive and healthy, use him often. Frequent use prolongs the battery. So there you have it toy addicts! Just another reason to masturbate! Long life batteries!

Be warned, this matte silicone is the biggest lint, hair whore you could ever imagine. Any strand of hair, any lint or dust particle you've got anywhere, this thing is a magnet! Be careful or you might have a lint vagina to worry about. Store wisely, or wash before use.

Packaging

Original and new packaging I was one of the lucky ones, and I have received the new Fun Factory packaging. The picture on the left is the traditional packaging for Fun Factory that one is for the Big Boss. The one on the right with the Tiger on the front is the new one.

The old packaging was ugly and kind of crappy and I couldn't wait to toss it because it just wasn't attractive. But the new packaging is still not so attractive, but you can tell that they have come up with something a little nicer. But as much as I like the Lelo and the JeJoue packaging... you have to think about it. Do you really use the packaging to store your toy? Personally, I think if Fun Factory came out with luxury packaging, we'd see a jack up in the price of their toys. I just wish they came with a storage pouch.

Inside the new packaging So the packaging is basically a box in a cardboard sleeve.

The sleeve is still loud and screams "LOOK AT ME!!! I'M A SEX TOY!!!" Yet the inner box is more discrete with nothing but a cool "Fun Factory" embossed on it. When you open the box, you have a bold red lining, the clam shell to hold the toy, new version of the instructions and a sample of Toy Fluid.

Yes, the inner box could be used for anything and unless someone knows what Fun Factory is... but then you can just ask what they ordered rather than try to be embarrassed. The colour of the box is kind of a tannish/goldish/some colour along these lines.

My biggest advice is to read the instructions carefully, and make sure you follow them when it comes to the initial charge of your Tiger. They suggest a minimum of six hours or until the red light turns off... but it never turns off.

Personal comments

Even though there are a few things I am not keen on in the Tiger... he really is the eye of the Tiger and the thrill of the night. Or day. Or afternoon.

He is not intimidating or huge huge but he is the perfect size to look at and think, "He'd feel soooo nice!!!"

With his deep rumbles, starting on the lowest setting and working your way up to the highest setting... be warned. His bark is so much fun as is his bite. By saying that, you may never need another vibrator after you get your hands on him.

There have been a few threads in the Forums about comparing him to some other toys,
Toy Comparisons from left to right, The Big Boss, Jopen Vanity vr6, The Tiger, Lelo Isla.

If you are looking for a toy comparison between the Isla and the Tiger take a gander here. There are also more pictures to compare the Tiger too on that link.

Experience

I've included lots of experience in the other various sections of this review. So here I will give you a trick I picked up while using the Tiger. I enjoy sitting near the end of my couch, thighs wide apart with my hips angled down. The Tiger along the length of my slit, and using a fair bit of lube just rocking over it. The flared base is perfect at this angle for clit stimulation and hand free use to toy with your nipples or to tease your partner while he provides you with a strip show.
Follow-up commentary
I think there should be an icon for "I still LOVE it!!!"

I originally bought the Tiger in September of 2011, and it is now February 2012.

My experiences using the Tiger as you have read in the review have been amazing and great!!! Compared to other vibrators (Lelo Isla, Duo Obsession to name just two g-spot vibes, this one wins hands down.

My issues with the battery and click n'charge has not been pretty. I had to return the Tiger to the store I bought him from as his battery stopped holding a charge. Fun Factory has a one year return policy for dysfunctional toys as long as you don't try to take it apart to fix it, and have followed the instructions (using it while recharging, and recharging in a bath tub are two no no's that would not get you a replacement toy)

The click n' charge technology is something I am seriously not too keen on in any of the Fun Factory line. However, it is something I can learn to live with as everything else about Fun Factory is high quality, orgasm inducing wonderful toys.

And the Tiger, is sitting high and mighty on the Vibrator Throne.

This is one toy I would say needs to be in every person's toy chest. I am still buying vibrators just to see if one can topple the Tiger off his throne.
