Rechargeable batteries...

DreamWolf DreamWolf
I heard (and I guess, experienced too, two vibes called the strongest of their kind being an extreme disappointment, and maybe only because of the rechargeable batteries yet), that vibes aren't as strong if you use rechargeable batteries in them instead of common, non-rechargeables...

I've used dollar store alakaline batteries in my toys for years. I tried switching to rechargeable toys, but besides the higher cost of the toy, my alkalines seem to outperform the rechargeable batteries. Maybe it's just how I use my vibrating toys (every couple of weeks).

They feel the same to me. I use to use Energizer throw aways, but now only use Energizer rechargeables and I never have any weak moments (unless they are going flat).
I hate forking out for normal batteries and the waste.

We've seen no difference. If anything, it seems more the way the toy is engineered than the effect of the battery type. It takes a long, long time for rechargeable battery cells to die.

Me too, and I use Energizer AAs as well, but still, sometimes it seems to me like they aren't as strong in some toys...

It has happened with vibes I think I found stronger with casual batteries, also, some new vibes I have tried only with rechargeables yet, and so far am not impressed, so it is really bugging my mind what the secrets are of the batteries and toys together... ~smiles frowny ^^

I hated using rechargeables because I found that the vibrations weren't as strong.

Yeah, I wonder about the toys too, not to mention, some just don't take any rechargeables as I heard, haven't experienced anything like that yet though, blissfully... ~smiles wide and happy

Though am about to be fed up with batteries in general, and now just gonna load a big belated Xmas order for battery-free vibes only, hope they will have enough vrooms, in the last few months whatever I received seemed too damned weak to me, even if it said level 4 vrooms, and that's why it annoys me...

I wonder if I am fine only with level 5 vrooms, cause all my powerful enough vibes came from places which had those vibes, but EF doesn't, and they are pretty much the cheap and cheesy category, and they still outperform any others I got only cause I saw level 4 rating here!

~sighs
I hope I will at least experience what level 4 really is on this site, guess my chances are very limited otherwise... ~sighs even more disappointed

Yeah, I guess that's what am going through now, gonna lose lots of hopes to enjoy some vibes with very special functions only because they use batteries, ahhh... ~rolls eyes ~smiles frowny

I hate standard rechargeable batteries, they never last long enough to make up for the extra cost of outfitting yourself with them.

Make sure you get good rechargeable batteries. I recommend Eneloops. They are very nice from my experience.

I agree 100%. We have been burned so many times with rechargeable batteries dying at the exact wrong moment (flashlights going dead in a power outage, spotlights dying when a moose was attacking my dog in the backyard, etc.).

I have not seen much difference between rechargeables and regular batters. I just make sure to charge mine fairly often, and have a back-up set in case they get low.

I think they have the same amount of power you just get more uses out of the rechargables which i think is better!!

It depends on the toy. I've had some toys that are terribly weak with rechargeable batteries (but great with disposables) and some that are fine with both.

If you're not sure, just test the toy in question.

Rechargeable toys can be strong - but for replaceable toys, strong energizers are better than the rechargeables.

Well I think that it depends on the toy, and the brand of batteries too - I have never checked them out.
