Well designed, but not perfectDespite bad battery life, this is an excellent toy. The controls are intuitive and responsive, and work over 20 feet away. It's waterproof, and the material is smooth and easy to clean. It doesn't bring anything new to the table, but what it does, it does well.
Wireless for hassle free or couples play, instant on/off switch
Battery drains fast, even when off. Vibrations are not very powerful for an egg vibrator
This is a general purpose egg vibrator, only wireless. It is on the larger side for egg vibrators, most likely due to the internal batteries. It works very well for clitoral stimulation, and because of the sturdy strap, for vaginal stimulation as well. The real draw here is meant to be the wireless functionality. If you hate those cords, or if you want to give the controller to your partner for a little play, this vibrator is for you.
The vibrator itself is made out of smooth plastic. The coating gives it a very soft feel. It doesn't have any phthalates, so it doesn't have that smell. The material works well with the design of the toy. The smooth texture is very nice, and it doesn't cause any irritation.
The design of the vibrator is standard, if a little big. They really weren't trying to innovate on the shape. The size should not be a problem for most people. It's wide for an egg vibrator, but still smaller than most full size vibrators. The toy is easy to hide, and would be fine for taking while traveling.
Overall, the controller and vibrator settings are very good. The thing that we liked most was the instant on/off switch. This is especially important for a vibrator meant for clitoral stimulation, as some women are rather sensitive. It has the 5 modes found in most vibrators, weak, medium, and strong vibration, followed by short pulses and long pulses. Noticeably absent is an escalate mode, but it's not a huge deal. The vibrations are medium strength as compared to other eggs, but it is quiet. The vibrator is waterproof, with no real problems sealing out water. The wireless works quickly, and the range is over 20 feet. The only thing is that because of the wireless and N batteries, the battery life is not great.
Because it's plastic, you can clean it with toy cleaner, or just soap and water. Don't use it with oil based lubricants, and clean it off before sharing. You can store it with other toys, and it won't take up much space. Make sure to take the batteries out if you don't plan on using it right away. Because it is wireless, it takes up a lot more power when idle than other vibrators. Within two weeks, the battery charge will be gone if you leave them in. The vibrator takes two N batteries, and the controller takes another N battery.
The packaging is obviously trying to look more professional. This would make a nice gift for a couple, especially because of the good quality materials.
Follow-up commentary 3 months after original review
We love this product and it performs very well. The only thing that we have against it is the dismal battery life. Even if you are careful with removing the batteries after use, they still drain rather quickly. If you can get over that though, this is a great product, and a lot of fun.
