Mini bullet and controller - bullet vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Jul!a

Packs A Tiny Punch

If you're on the quest for a new bullet, this one isn't a bad choice. It doesn't have lots of fancy bells and whistles, but it is obscenely quiet (great for dorm settings) and packs a pretty decent punch for how quiet it is.
Obscenely quiet, Fairly strong vibrations, Not a lint magnet
Can be a little glitchy from time to time, Buzzy surface vibrations

extremely useful review


A single corded bullet can do a lot of things, but seems to work the absolute best as a clit vibe. Of course this doesn't mean that you couldn't easily use this to work the nipples or any other erogenous zone. This particular one would be good for many folks out there, particularly those that don't like really strong vibrations.

Material / Texture

This whole set, bullet and controller pack, are made out of a really soft, matte plastic. It's super smooth to the touch and has virtually no drag whatsoever. It does have a faint smell that I can't really put my finger on, although it's very faint and only if you're darn near sticking the bullet up your nose. It's going to work best for those who prefer smoother textures.

Design / Shape / Size

The controller pack looks like an odd oval almost, except that one end is flat. That end screws off to put in the batteries. It's just about 3 3/4" long and holds easily in any hand (even small ones). Attached by a 31" cord is the bullet, which comes in at about 1 1/2" long and 1 1/2" around. It is waterproof, so you can insert it vaginally, but it really won't do much.

The whole shebang is small enough to easily tuck into most purses, and even some pockets, but it's not very discreet, so keep that in mind if traveling with it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls are worked by pressing either an up or down arrow to cycle through the 4 vibration settings. The first setting is a gently tickle, barely audible, period. The second setting is a little bit stronger, and still just as quiet. The third is still virtually silent, and now we start getting into the itchy fingers. Even on the highest setting, you could probably use this with the door open and nobody would notice. It's seriously that quiet. The vibrations seem just under high pitched, and they are pretty buzzy. Not too shabby for 2 AA batteries.

As far as the waterproof claim goes, I don't normally take my bullets into the shower with me, but I did submerge it on high in a sink full of water for a few minutes, and the bullet just clattered away like chattering teeth with no signs of stopping.

Care and Maintenance

Care is pretty easy, spray with your favorite toy cleaner or wash in the sink with warm water and soap. You can't sterilize this, so make sure that you keep it all to yourself, and always make sure the battery compartment is completely sealed before traveling into any aqueous environments. You can use water or silicone based lube, and you can either store it in its package, or out in a drawer. It doesn't gather lint, so it will live fairly happily just about anywhere.


Unfortunately my fiance got to cleaning before I got to writing this review, so the packaging has been lost. But while I can't tell you exactly what it said all over it, I can tell you that it wasn't much bigger than the bullet and controller, it had a flip top, and everything slid out in a tray. I can't remember what there was in the way of instructions however. It wasn't tremendously tacky, but it wasn't discreet in the least bit.

Personal comments

Please avoid sticking this in your butt. It can't be sterilized, and cords break all the time. It's just not a good idea.


There are a few reasons this toy was a bust for me. Number one was that I prefer stronger vibrations than this toy can give me. The vibrations just seem to be too surfacey for me to get much enjoyment out of them.

Number two is that even after having the first one I bought replaced, the second one also wanted to turn off if I want to go any higher than the second setting. For whatever reason it's fine if I have 2 Duracell batteries in there. I haven't tested other big brands of batteries, but I had a mix and it would shut off, but with 2 of the same, it's fine.

Overall, it's really not a bad toy. Especially when it works. But I was on a quest to replace my favorite corded bullet from Doc Johnson, and this one was just not quite up to par. I do enjoy it from time to time, but I find that without the little sleeve like my last one had, it can get rather uncomfortable during sex, so when I do use it, it's on my own.
Follow-up commentary
I feel like I'm being harsh on this one. It's not that it's a bad toy, but after I got my bullets galore kit, I never used this one again. The whole battery compartment being super finicky made me even less likely to want to use it. It's not the worst thing out there, although there are other corded bullets I would recommend over this one.

    Great review as always. Your video review really opened my eyes to how long the cord is. It always seemed so short in still pictures. I'm thinking now that this may be a good choice for us. Wonderful information on battery brands, thanks for all of the effort and detail that you put into this smashing review!
