Storage Tips for Rechargeable Vibrators?

Storage Tips for Rechargeable Vibrators?

Kynky Kytty Kynky Kytty
Ok, I know how to take care of regular vibrators, I take the batteries out and put it in storage in an appropriate place. But I've been wondering about the best way to put a rechargeable vibrator in storage. It's not like I can take the battery out. And I did try to find some information about this, but information is scarce and I'm not always sure what to believe.

So, does anyone know if it's better to empty the battery from its charge? Or could that damage the battery and its efficiency? Or should it be regularly recharged every month or so?

The Cobra Libre is the only rechargeable toy I have, and that specifically recommends that you fully charge it before storing.

In general, I would say that you probably don't want to completely discharge a battery before storing, but it's questionable if you need to fully re-charge either. I also wouldn't regularly recharge except when you plan to specifically use the toy.

Good question - Im expecting my first rechargeable this week. I doubt I'll be storing mine for any long periods but handy to know if I do.
One would think they would put that kind of info in the books so we know huh.

Well when you have more than one rechargeable vibrator, you'll undoubtly have a favorite. Which is my case right now.

And not all companies expect you to put their toy in storage either. It's fun that Fun Factory covers that information, like Kindred said.

It's probably a lot of work if you have a lot of toys, but you could try contacting each company and asking for their recommendations.

While I have no experience with rechargeable sex toy's, I do have 20 some years of Hobby grade Radio Control. In all my years I have never heard any thing good about storing a battery discharged. I always fully charge the battery before storage. This holds true for Lithium-ion, Nickel-metal hydride (NiMh) and Nickel-cadmium (NiCd or NiCad) battery's. And I have some battery pack's that are six years old.

I would still recommend that you send a quick email to the company and ask them to make sure.
