E-sensual bullet - usb bullet by Cal Exotics - review by Raigne

The little geek toy that could

If you're looking for a compact bullet vibe and are turned on by technology, this toy is for you. With multiple functions, a simple design, and strong vibrations, this USB toy is a great addition to anyone's toy box. And it's only $20!
Powerful, compact, easy to use, nice selection of patterns
Cord could be longer, requires a dedicated power source
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Since this is a bullet vibe, it's compact, ergonomically shaped, and you can use it just about anywhere you can get the cord to reach. I used it on my neck, nipples, thighs, clit and labia. It could be used by men for stimulation of the penis, scrotum or perineum as well. It isn't waterproof or even splash resistant, so I would only recommend it for external use. It packs up small, as long as you have some kind of cable management, and could be used for travel (although, it looks like a bullet, so anyone looking will know what it is). It's probably not very useful for dorm use, as it is loud enough on higher settings to hear from across the room.

Material / Texture

The all-black version of this toy is hard plastic with a velvety PU-coating, and this was the version I got. The black and silver version is just smooth plastic. The coating gives the bullet a buttery feel, and a small amount of drag. If you like a little bit of friction, this will definitely provide that, and if you don't, a small amount of lubrication will allow it to slide around easily. The toy has no odor, no odd taste, and the material is non-porous.

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is designed to plug into a USB port, either through a computer or using a USB AC adapter (these frequently come with cellphones and other small digital devices, but can be bought in just about any tech store a la carte; I used the one from my Kindle), but apart from that is much like your average corded bullet vibe. The bullet itself is a bit over 2" long, and the total length of the cable is about 45". The cable is about 34" long from the USB plug to the control pad, and 7" from the control pad to the bullet. I found the length from the the control pad to the bullet to be long enough to use comfortably, but the length to the USB plug was too short. This was easily remedied with a USB extension cable, which has a male USB plug on one end and a female USB plug on the other:

USB extension

USB devices and cables can be daisy-chained together, so even if a single extension isn't enough, you can add more (up to 173 of them if you really wanted to).

The bullet is long enough to keep a decent grip on it in use, but I would be careful where you put the lube, or it may try to run away from you. With the cord all wrapped up, the toy is very compact, and could be stashed anywhere you could fit a man's wallet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet features seven different vibration modes, including low/medium/high and four different patterns. The step from low to medium seems a bit more intense than the step from medium to high to me, but there is a very obvious difference in power between all three. And this toy is powerful; the steady high mode was too much for me, and even medium was uncomfortable at first.

The four pattern modes are two medium pulses followed by a high pulse, a fast medium pulse, alternating medium and low pulse, and a roller coaster that ramps up to high before dropping directly back to low. I actually enjoyed using the functions. The vibrations in this toy are strong enough that I can dangle it by the cord and just let it bounce on my clit. The vibrations can be felt through the cord strongly enough that even that made my fingers a little numb after awhile.

The control panel is very basic, with just two arrow buttons, which are not labeled. The one furthest from the bullet turns the toy on and cycles through the modes, and the one closest to the bullet turns the toy off again. The vibrations are slightly rumbly on low, but get buzzy on the higher settings. There is an occasional high pitched whine, and the motor frequently rattles inside the bullet. After about ten minutes of use, the bullet becomes very warm to the touch, and those sensitive to temperature may find this unpleasant.

On its lowest setting, the bullet can not be heard six feet away in the same room, but the higher settings are clearly audible. None of the settings can be heard through a closed door in a room with normal insulation.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The toy can not be submerged in water, so cleaning in the sink is not recommended. Use a damp, soapy cloth, toy wipes, or a toy cleaner to clean it. Since it is PU coated plastic it can be used with water or silicone-based lubricants. It doesn't attract dust, and you can store it just about anywhere.

I really enjoyed using this toy. It's easy to use and care for, and well worth the $20 it costs.It performs its job well, and will probably spend most of its time plugged into my surge protector.

Out of curiosity (i.e. Science!), I tried using this toy pressed against a glass dildo. I found the results underwhelming, but probably wouldn't use it that way anyway.
Follow-up commentary
The bullet's performance hasn't changed. It does rattle more now that it did when I first got it. I have to be excited enough to tune it out to use it or it gets really distracting. On some settings I can rotate it a certain way to make it stop, but others (particularly my favorite, the roller coaster), I can't get it to stop at all.

I am very glad I chose the black bullet. Even when things get a little sloppy the texture lets me keep a grip on the bullet most of the time, and it feels great when I rub it against my clit.

I still find the high setting to be too much stimulation for me, which is why I appreciate the roller coaster setting. One short high buzz and then the low-powered rumble. Still feels great. I still use it with a USB extension cable. I find that the cord on it is too short to really be very useful, but even if you don't have one lying around and have to buy it, the bullet is still well worth the cost.
