Bad Vibrations!

This item wasn't worth it for me. I wouldn't buy it again or recommend it. It was disappointing. It would have been great if not for the flaws.
strong vibrations, long cord, waterproof
heats up, wiring issues,

useful review


The Power Play 7 function Slimline Bullet by California Exotics is great for single play or couples play. The Power play is used for clitoral or external stimulation. It appealed to me because it had: a nice velvety texture, 7 different vibration patterns, strong vibrations, and it's waterproof. However, right off during use it heated up really bad. On my third use it decided it didn't want to continuously work.

Material / Texture

The power play 7 function slimline had no scent or taste. The bullet and control pack are made from a hard plastic with a PU coating that gives it the smooth velvety texture. The bullet has a seam about midways down its length; I suppose it’s for looks. The smooth velvety texture and seam do not provide any extra stimulation. This product has a material safety of 7 and is latex free. The cord is your basic cord. It goes from the bullet to the control pack. Each end has a little plastic nub that keeps water out. This is what allows it to be water proof.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The power play 7 function slimline bullet is 2.25" long, circumference is 2.25" and the diameter is.75" weight is 2.25 oz. In comparison the bullet is about the size of a baby carrot. The cord is 31" long. The control pack is 4" long and 2" at its widest point. The control pack fits really comfortably in the palm of my hand. The control pack has 2 buttons one says on/off the other says 7X. The bottom of the control pack holds the battery pack. It says PUSH, you push it is fully removable and holds 3 AAA batteries. Just add batteries and push back in until it clicks closed. The power play 7 is small and easy to hide but if found it’s not very discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The functions are easy to use. There are two buttons on the control pack on/off and 7X. When the on/off button is pushed it turns on to a strong vibration. To turn it off you just push the on/off button again. When the 7X button is pushed it changes speed and variations.

The vibrations are located in the bullet. This bullet is noisier than my phone on vibrate. It is waterproof had no problem using it in water. Your choices in vibrations vary between solid vibration, pulsation, and escalation. For example the variations are a bit like this bzzzzzz; bzbzbzbz; bzzz bzzz bzzz.

Now for my complaints that the wiring is finicky it doesn't work when I need it to. The bullet also heats up to an uncomfortable temperature quickly.
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

To clean this toy you can use warm water and antibacterial soap. You can also use toy cleaner. This toy can be used with silicone and water based lubricants. This bullet can be stored anywhere you desire.


The packaging was a clear plastic bubble pack. It had a cardboard background that tells the vibration functions. Unfortunately no batteries were included. The package was not discreet in the least.
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

It has really strong vibrations but they do not go deep.


I had a very frustrating experience with this toy. It stopped during its third use and in the middle of fun. My husband and I are both disappointed. It left us very frustrated. It had really strong vibrations but they did not go deep.
Follow-up commentary
The Power play 7 didn’t have strong, deep enough vibrations. That hasn't changed. It has since quit working altogether. I will not purchase this item again.
