Battery-operated vs. rechargeable?

Battery-operated vs. rechargeable?

Kat Shanahan Kat Shanahan
So I was cleaning out my toy drawer today, and I realized that every single one of my toys is battery-operated. I just ordered my first rechargeable toy (the Lelo Iris) and I'm pretty stoked to try it out. I'm hoping to replace some of my older toys in the near future.

What I'm looking for feedback on is this: Are rechargeable toys worth the extra price? Frankly, I'm getting tired of constantly spending money on batteries (and rechargeable batteries don't really do the trick because I often use more than one toy during a session and it's close to impossible to keep enough batteries charged and ready to go.

I know every rechargeable toy is different, but for those of you who own any, do you find that the charges last long enough to get you through a session or two? How long, on average, do rechargeable toys last, in your experience?

Eventually I would love to own nothing but rechargeable toys, if for no other reason than to save myself some money on batteries (and hey, it would be better for the environment, too -- all those dead batteries!)

Any advice anyone has would be great. Thanks!

I have mostly rechargable toys and they tend to last me 2-3 uses at top speed before I feel like the motor is slowing (although I usually recharge after one session, because it's easy to just plug them in before you leave for the day or whatever). I use them maybe 20-30 minutes at a time.
