Eco-Friendly is the way to go today, in every aspect of life. Some sex toys fall into this category, being recyclable, rechargeable, or able to use rechargeable batteries. But if you go camping or do any other activity that is away from an outlet, you’ve had to hope you didn’t run the charge out on your toy or hope you’ve brought enough batteries to get you through. But now there’s another option: solar powered sex toys. Meet the Solar Bullet from California Exotics that I got from Babeland.
Solar Bullet comes in a cardboard box made in part of recycled paper product. An actual sized picture is on the front and product information is on the back. The box contains a solar cell power pack and a bullet with a long cord and jack. No instructions are included.
The solar cell pack is small – just 3 1/2" by 2 1/4" and 1/4" high. It’s black, and most of the top is the area which will allow charging via the sun. If you don’t have a lot of sunlight you can also charge this under ordinary room light – I was able to charge mine the first time by setting it on a desk in a room with a fluorescent bulb overhead. An LED light on the side glows blue to indicate that there is enough light to charge it and the battery is charging. The box recommends charging the cell for 8 hours, after which you’ll have 60 minutes of charge for the bullet.
bullet is small, at 2 1/4” long and about 5/8” wide. It has a generous 33” cord that plugs into the side of the solar pack. The bullet also has an LED light on the tip, which could be used as a super small flashlight in a pinch. The slider on the top of the pack goes from off/low (with the slider pushed to the right) up to high (left). The vibrations are steady, buzzy, surface vibrations and are moderately powerful.
The solar pack is made of plastic, and the bullet is plastic with velvet-cote. Both are phthalates-free and non-porous. The solar pack should be wiped off with a damp (but not wet) cloth and dried, taking care not to get water in any of the openings (for the slider or jack). The bullet can be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap and dried.
So, Does It Work? This is such a great idea! While the charging time seems pretty high, if you tossed the cell pack on your dashboard while you were out hiking it would be ready for you when you returned. Since the bullet detaches, no one would give the solar pack a second look if it was out in the open. The 60 minute run time isn’t too bad, and the bullet doesn’t seem to lose any power during use until it dies.
bullet is interesting, and actually quite bright. It’d be great in a pinch, and is like a small flashlight. The only problem is that the bullet has to be on for the light to work. The light seems the same strength no matter what speed the bullet is on, but it’d be nice to have an option to use the light only so your hand didn't vibrate while using it.
The vibrations are high and buzzy, and not terribly loud. They are moderately strong, and will get you to climax eventually if you need strong vibrations, within the 60 minute timeframe. The light’s a little strange, but my husband thought it was kind of cool when I used the bullet in the dark.
Something else that’s definitely cool is that the solar pack works with other mini-jack toys! I have an assortment of these, mostly bullets, ball strings, and an anal plug or two. They plug right into the solar pack and operate, so you can actually take an assortment of toys with you and power them all with this pack.
This is a great toy: solar rechargeable, discreet, and easy to care for, even if it's not the strongest. I’d like to thank Babeland for sending this to me for free to review! If you’d like to do your share for the planet, you can pick up your own Solar Bullet at Babeland today.
