Rechargeable, power cord, or battery powered?

If a toy comes in a rechargeable form, I'll definitely go for it. Sadly, at present, only one of my toys (the Alia) is rechargeable, and most of the others run on AA or AAA batteries. I seem to have the battery-gods smiling on me, though, as I'm often able to make the suckers last an awful long time. One of my cheapest vibes has lasted for 3 years on only one change (though that may have to do with the fact that I occasionally go for a month or two without using toys).

On a related note, I'm thinking of getting rechargeable batteries anyway. That way, all my vibes can (in a way) be rechargeable!

I don't own a rechargeable but I'm SO happy more companies are producing them. The closest I have to rechargeable is my Wahl which is electric and always attached to a power outlet.

I'd really like to try a rechargeable toy, but I love electric toys. I dislike ones that run on AAA or AA, they seem to get run down (power) pretty quickly if they are used daily.

Sadly, I've yet to get a rechargeable one! I've been dying to though. I prefer toys that run off AA b/c they're easier to find lying around or in the remote lol. I hate having to go out and buy unusual batteries.

I pay extra for rechargeable toys. I'm usually not even interested in purchasing a battery-powered toy - it would have to look really, really amazing.

I wish that all toys were rechargable...

I like rechargable. My vibrator uses batteries and I'd really rather not use batteries but the We-vibe II I got is rechargable. So great!

Honestly as long as it works and gets the job done, batteries or not, it's okay with us.

I like the IDEA of rechargeables, but the reality is that you have to have some foresight in order to charge them ahead of time, or some free electric sockets in order to keep them plugged in "just in case". So if it's going to have to be plugged in at some point anyway, just give me a (really long) power cord.

Definitely recharge. More power than ones that run off batteries without getting tangles in cord.

Power cord or rechargeable; I wouls so pay more for these also, if more toys came with this option. Batteries you end up paying out the butt for anyhow.

Rechargeable all the way!

Don't underestimate C-Batteries. I've always liked the toys I've gotten that ran on C-Batteries.

We have never tried a cordless/rechargable toy. I can see the added benefit to them. Not have to by the batteries would be sweet. I would think it would have to be plugged in for it to charge before use. On some of our toys I would pay more if they were rechargable.

Right now, I'm limited to battery powered toys. Even with rechargeable batteries, it could be rather a nuisance dealing with the batteries (having to fumble around to find some when my rechargeables are being used by something else or not charged). I've never had a rechargeable/cord powered toy. I am, though, looking to change that soon. I would pay a little more for a toy that had a rechargeable but the rechargeable battery has to be worth the while. There are some that aren't worth the extra bucks and the only way to find out, unfortunately, is after the purchase.

Rechargeable toys are nice, but if they're battery operated (by any kind of battery other than watch batteries), I'll use rechargeable batteries on them, so they'll be green for me either way.

Definitely power cord! It's such a pain to have to buy batteries all the time. On the other hand, batteries ARE more discreet—you have to be careful about leaving a toy out when it's charging...
