Oh How I Longed To Salsa The Night Away...

All-in-all the Salsa seemed like it was going to be a perfect match for me; it met all the criteria I had set for a vibrator. Unfortunately the problems with the charger were just too much for me, so it's back to researching so I can find something that will be a better match for me. Better luck next time...I hope.
Super quiet
Fairly powerful
Charger too sensitive and stopped working a lot
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review
I am fairly new to Eden, but I must say I am becoming quite hooked. I spent a lot of time (I will decline to admit just how much) on the website researching for my next purchase. Here is what I wanted: small, quiet, discreet and most of all---powerful. I also wanted rechargeable because batteries annoy me. There is nothing worse than getting all hot and bothered and ready to play with your vibrator and then discovering the batteries are dead and there are none left in the house. So while I am researching away I discovered this beautiful vibrator and was immediately drawn to it. The Salsa is small, waterproof, rechargeable and super quiet. It was everything that I wanted and more. I watched all of the review videos and even found more on Youtube. Each showed the power of the Salsa and my heart was set. I still researched a few others and compared using Eden's awesome comparison section and still kept going back to the Salsa. I ordered it and could not wait for it's arrival.

Upon arrival I was super excited and wanted to use it right then and there, but of course it needs to be charged for 90 minutes prior to use. So, I mustered up my patience and plugged it in. This is where I noticed a problem. I had read the charging port was a bit sensitive so I was somewhat prepared, but what I ended up dealing with seemed more than just a little sensitivity. I placed the Salsa on a desk with nothing around it and plugged it in. The light came on and I walked away. I came back a little while later and the light was off. I knew it couldn't be finished yet so I adjusted it again and the light came back on. I watched for a little while longer and seeing the light still on, gave it some more time. After a few more moments I came back to check and the light was off again. Hmm. Maybe it was ready. So I powered it up and gave it a try.

Performance: the Salsa's power is pretty nice. I need very strong, steady vibrations and this has it, but honestly it still didn't feel quite as strong as I expected. Then it abruptly stopped working. Obviously it wasn't really fully charged. Disappointed I cleaned it with warm water and soap and wiped it dry and connected it back up to the charger. Something I love about the Salsa is how easy it is to clean. The smooth plastic may not be the most luxurious surface out there, but it doesn't feel bad and clean up is so easy and fast.

So, this time I paid a little more attention to it while it was charging and soon came to realize that no matter how much I adjusted it, the Salsa wouldn't stay charging. Nothing on the table moved or shifted, but the light would go off. I'm not sure if I just happened to get a defected one or if it's really just that sensitive while charging. I tried it several times sitting it several different ways to try to make it work, but it just never got to fully charge.

As much as I really think it could have had potential, the charger on this is really starting to annoy me and I have decided today to return it. I'm honestly really disappointed because I really wanted this vibrator and it met so many of the criteria I had and seemed like it would be a perfect match. Another thing I love about Eden is the great return policy and I'm grateful that I can return this and get back to my research and try something else and hopefully next time I'll find the one that will truly be perfect for me. For those who had no problems with the Salsa---I'm jealous.

    I had the same issues with that damn charger.. But I found a work around from another member and never believed it would work! If you ever decide to try the We-Vibe Salsa or Tango again here's the tip:

    Hang the charger cord so that when you attach your vibe, it will be hanging as well. I only left an inch or so above the rug, or you could do it over a towel or blanket (the idea is to cushion it should it accidentally fall). However, that's never happened. What's so unusual, is that the magnets work so strongly this way compared to any other position! And the light stays on the whole time (yes, I watched it!). I never believed this would work, but I was desperate. I hang the cod over my closet doorknob and have had this work the best of all positions for charging for both my Salsa and my Tango!

    I was having the same problem with the charger for my Tango. I'm glad I checked this review - Wahine's fix worked for me! And, of course, thanks for the review.

    It worked for you?! I am so happy it did; that's great! I was shocked at how well it worked because it seems like it shouldn't make that much difference, but it really does! And I'm glad it's not just working for me, I want it to help others so they can enjoy these fabulous, rumbly, strong vibrators!

    Thanks for the tip. I wish I would have seen this before I returned it! Thanks for the comments.
  • Sincerely yours, N
    It did! Like, I was on the verge of returning mine for being defective (but dreading the shipping cost since I don't think where I got it has free returns), but your comment saved mine.

    I agree with the observation on the finicky charger. Also, I found the vibrations way too rumbly... but thanks for the review!
