Bullet Vibrator Buyer's Guide

 

Which is the Best Bullet Vibrator?

Bullet vibrators are the mini vibrators that we know and love. It’s the discreet little travel companion for when you’re on the go. The name comes from the fact it’s often shaped like a bullet and quite small in size. Sometimes they do come in unusual shapes, resembling a lipstick or a tube of mascara - making them very discreet.

We love the Picobong range, mainly because of its association with luxury brand Lelo. The Picobong Honi Mini comes in a range of really cute colours and despite its size we love that it still comes with 18 different speeds and 12 different patterns. It’s ridiculously quiet and has a nicely pointed tip for precise stimulation of the clitoris. It’s made of the same high quality silicone as Lelo is famous for, and it’s also 100% waterproof so it’s hygienic and easy to clean.

This guide outlines the most popular bullet vibrators, and looks at some of the most popular brands that manufacture bullet vibrators, and then we discuss the main considerations when choosing this kind of vibrator.

Let's get down to the products and take a look at some of the key features of each toy.

Rocks Off Tattoo RO80, RO120, RO160

Rocks Off is a company known for making high-quality bullet vibrators. The original was the RO80, named because it is 80mm (8cm) long and looks like the shape of an actual bullet shell. The RO120 is 120mm long, the RO160 is 160mm long, and the widths do vary slightly. As the size increases, so does the width, which keeps the RO120 and RO160 in the same form and shape as the RO80.

The motor in the vibrator is manufactured only for Rocks Off, and was designed to be compact in size but also very powerful. All three are available in a wide range of colours and patterns, but the Tattoo version has a metallic gold base with a stencil drawn by Lal Hardy - definitely one of the most exotic designs available. Made with a metallic ABS plating with a PU coating over the top, this is a waterproof product that takes 2 x AAA batteries.

If you're after a compact bullet vibrator then this is definitely one to consider. It's well made, versatile, stylish and with a simple design that works time after time. Highly recommended.

Picobong Ipo

When it comes to this bullet vibe, the old cliché of being small and mighty has never been truer. Just one AAA battery gives you a solid two hours of use, and the motor is not only whisper quiet but incredibly powerful. Slip it over your finger and activate using the simple 2-button interface. Click through 12 different vibration patterns and a whopping 18 levels of speed. Made entirely of 100% body safe silicone, this bullet has been designed to give you a greater level of control by wearing it on your finger. It can be worn by a man or a woman, making it perfect for couples or solo play. The motor is basically silent, so it’s ideal if you’re travelling or sharing a house with other people.

The silicone finish is completely waterproof to a depth of 1m so you can take it in the bath, shower or hot tub without causing damage. Silicone is great for those with sensitive skin and it’s hypoallergenic, non-toxic and free of both latex and nasty phthalates. Use it against your clitoris or even enjoy some shallow vaginal penetration. The range of colours includes black, purple, pink or aqua and it comes with a one-year warranty in case of any issues.

JOpen - Key Charms

Each of the three Key Charms vibrators comes with a unique silicone sleeve. Choose your colour (blue, lavender, pink) and then choose the finish (lace, silk, plush or velvet). It’s a great way to add some variety to your toy collection, as each finish has a different texture. The silk finish has a swirled ridge around the outside, the lace has fairly pronounced nubs, the plush is quite smooth and the velvet is incredibly soft. The sleeves are removable, so you can take it off to clean and sterilise before and after each use. Insert one AAA battery and you’ll get close to two hours of use out of your vibrator. There’s five different levels of vibration, all accessed at the touch of a single button. This button is quite sensitive, so we recommend taking batteries out while travelling in case it accidentally turns on in your bag. If you take off the sleeve, the vibrator underneath is made from ABS plastic with a PU coating. This is perfect for beginners, with low rumbly vibrations and a handy waterproof finish.

Ovo W2

The Ovo W2 has more of a teardrop shape than a traditional bullet shape, and it’s made from 100% ABS plastic. It’s still non-porous, so it won’t harbor any nasty bacteria and there’s no nasty plastic softening agents (phthalates) or latex. It’s waterproof, making it perfect for the shower or bath. To get started, hold down the button at the top of the vibe for three seconds, and then scroll your way through five different settings. It’s a fairly decent size (5.9cm long and 2cm wide) but still discreet enough to pop in your handbag or leave on the bedside table without raising any eyebrows. Hold down the power button to engage the auto-lock mechanism, and you’ll know there is no risk of any awkward moments while travelling. We think it’s a great couples toy, because you can hold it in place while trying out a range of different positions. The shiny, rounded tip is cool against the skin and gives you a wide surface area for plenty of contact.

Neon Luv Touch Lipstick Vibe Pink

PipeDream have had a lot of fun with the design of this little toy. Shaped exactly like a lipstick case, you take off the cap and there’s even an angled head in your favourite shade underneath. The tip is made from a soft PVC and the handle is made from ABS plastic. While not overly powerful, the multispeed vibration gives you a steady hum that is well worth the price and ease of use. It’s a great one for travel, or just keeping in your handbag. The slanted tip makes it perfect for pinpoint stimulation of the clitoris and you just turn the dial located in the base to change speed settings. It’s 100% waterproof and takes 2 x AAA batteries.

The Different Types of Bullet Vibrators

OK, now it’s time to take a look at the different sorts of bullet vibrators on the market.

Miniature and small bullet vibrators

Mini Vibes

If you’re after something that packs a powerful punch but still fits into the palm of your hand then a mini vibe is perfect. They’re usually shaped like a bullet, but sometimes shaped like a flashlight (Neon Luv Touch Mini Mite) or a teardrop (Ovo W2). Running on batteries, you will usually get a few hours of fun from your mini vibe and can choose from a range of fun colours. They’re not large enough to be intended for full penetration, but you can usually insert the tip enough for some shallow play. If you’re after targeted clitoral stimulation, why not try a mini vibe with rabbit ears, like the Cal Exotics Lia Bounding Bunny or the top-of-the-line Jopen Lust L1. Perhaps you’d like an angled tip, which presses against more of your skin and sensitive clitoral area. If so, try the Cal Exotics Gyrating Chubby G or the Picobong Kiki C-Vibe. If you plan to go travelling and want to pack your mini vibe, save an embarrassing situation by choosing something with an auto-lock function, like the Ovo W2. If you want to take it in the shower or bath then you’ll need something waterproof, like the Fun Factory Angelo Mini.

Discreet bullet vibrators

Discreet

If being discreet is the key, then we have a range of bullet vibrators that are designed to look like normal, everyday items. This is great if you have nosy housemates, live with your parents or are worried your vibe might fall into the wrong hands. Some of the most popular discreet vibrators are shaped like a regular lipstick. A few of our favourites include the Neon Luv Touch Lipstick Vibe, Touche High Class Lipstick and the Rocks Off Ammunition For Love RO100 Soft Tip (which actually looks more like a silver bullet but can definitely pass for a lipstick!). Then you’ve got some other clever designs like the Touche Elite Powder Brush. This is an actual brush, with a powerful little vibrator locate din the handle that makes the bristles tremble. Dip them in the powder pot and brush the sweetly scented powder all over your body for exciting foreplay. You can then use the handle on its own for clitoral stimulation. The Touche Elegant Eyelash is made to look like a mascara wand, but is actually a 100% silicone vibrator. You could even go down a different route, and choose something like the Picobong Honi Mini or the 10-Speed Remote Vibrating Egg that look exactly like a cute little USB stick and can be attached directly to your keyring for easy access.

Remote control bullet vibrators

Remote Controlled

The idea behind a remote controlled vibe is to let your partner take control. Choose a wired or a wireless design and hand over the reigns so you can sit back and be pleasantly surprised. Not knowing when they’re going to start, how long they’ll go for or how powerful the vibrations are going to be makes the whole experience really exciting. Wired remotes, like the BNaughty Classic by B Swish come with long cords so that you don’t have to be right near each other to use. This particular model has a 78cm cord length. Just be careful not to tug too hard or you can risk damaging the cord or worst of all – pulling the bullet out of place just as you get comfortable! Other popular wired remote vibrators include the Cal Exotics Entice Ella and the Doc Johnson Black Magic Bullet and Controller. Wireless remotes allow you to add another layer of adventure, because you can hand over the controller and go out and about in public. Try the Shots 10-speed Vibrating Love Egg, which can be placed into your underwear and worn hands-free in the vagina, nestling snugly against your clitoris.

Things to Consider When Buying A Bullet Vibrator

There are a few things to consider before you go ahead and purchase any bullet vibrator. You should have a think about what it’s made from, the price and the brand name and find something that ticks all of your boxes.

Materials/Compounds

Whether you’re planning to insert your bullet vibe into the vagina for some shallow play, or simply use it against your clitoris or perineum, you should think about what it’s made from first.

  • Silicone - This is considered to be the safest option when it comes to sex toys. Silicone, particularly medical-grade silicone if you can get it, is extremely versatile. It can have a soft, velvety finish or a smooth and glossy feel. It can be hard, soft and is always 100% waterproof so you can take it in the bath or shower. It also means cleanup is a breeze because you can boil it, sterilise it, disinfect it and even clean it with a 10% bleach solution. Silicone is non-porous, free of latex and phthalates, hypoallergenic and completely odourless. It usually costs a bit more than a jelly rubber option but we believe it’s worth the investment to keep your sensitive skin free of infections.
  • Composites - Quite a few bullet vibrators will feature a composite of different materials. You might get an ABS plastic core with a plastic PU coating on the outside. Or it might have a hard ABS plastic core with a silicone skin over the top. Some have different materials on the handle and the tip, giving different textures and feels.
  • TPE - TPE is a cheaper option than silicone, because it is not porous. This means bacteria can get into the pores if you don’t clean your toy properly. However, TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) is free of latex and phthalates (a nasty chemical that softens plastic and has been banned in some countries). It’s a good option if you are not looking to spend a fortune, and you like the soft and flexible finish that rubber offers.

In general our recommendation is to choose the highest quality material that you can afford - in most cases this will be a silicone compound.

Materials
bullet vibrator sizes and shapes

Size & Shape

Despite being known primarily for its bullet shape, you can actually get a whole range of varying shapes and sizes in a bullet vibrator. The bullet design is efficient, targeted, and discreet and hits all the right pressure points for those wanting clitoral stimulation and powerful vibrations. So if those are the types of itch you’re looking to scratch then why not stick with this simple shape, because you really can’t go wrong. For an affordable option why not check out the Neon Luv Touch Bullet, the Rocks Off Buddies Missile or the Rocks Off Ammunition of Love RO 80. These are a great place to start off if you’re a beginner and don’t want to make a big investment until you’re comfortable with the toy. If you’ve been using a traditional bullet vibe for a while and want to add a bit more oomph, why not try a rabbit shape to tickle the clitoris. We love the Touche Harlequin and the Cal Exotics Lia Bounding Bunny. A wide angled tip means you get more area to apply to your sensitive zones, for example the Picobong Kiki C-Vibe or the Ovo D4. A mini vibe with a bulbous shape, like the SWAN 10 – The Swan Clutch, is designed to be inserted into the vagina. Your muscles clasp around one end and you can tighten and release to feel a range of different sensations. If you want to try something that affords a little more control, you could go for a finger vibe such as the Jopen Key “Aries” or Picobong Ipo. If you want to take your vibe out and about, choose an egg shape that can be worn in your underwear. Something like the Marc Dorcel Secret Vibe Remote Control Egg is perfect for this.

Speeds and Vibration Rhythms

Being a tiny device, you’re not going to get an extreme amount of power from your bullet vibe. These are really designed for personal use when you’re on the go, taking a break from work, on a long car trip or simply looking for a quick fix during a busy day. Most run on one or two AAA batteries, and will be extremely quiet and discreet for use in public places. Some devices have a surprising amount of functions, like the Picobong Outie with its 12 vibration patterns or the Touche Harlequin with 10 vibrating, escalating and pulsating patterns. We also like the Fun Factory Angelo Mini with its 8 levels of intensity and 3 different programs. We suggest starting off with a low setting and working your way up, and you’ll soon be able to scroll straight to your favourite setting once you’ve become familiar with your device. Some of the simpler, cheaper options will not have as many settings but this also means less fiddling around. You could go for something like the Neon Luv Touch Bullet with its 5 functions or the Le Reve 3-Speed Bullet.

Regular Batteries vs Rechargeable

Some bullet vibes will allow you to use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones. Check the box for details, because if the vibe isn’t compatible with rechargeable batteries you could damage it.

If you’re going with a regular battery, then we recommend splashing out a bit more for something that’s heavy duty (i.e. zinc chloride batteries). These have been proven to last longer than an alkaline battery and are less likely to leak and erode your toy. Sometimes it’s just a matter of spending a couple of extra dollars to ensure you get the most out of your toy, rather than buying cheap batteries that you’ll have to replace all the time. The worst thing that can happen is settling down to use your bullet vibe and realising you have run out of spare batteries and the current ones are dead!

If it’s possible to use rechargeable batteries, it’s well worth it for the environmentally. We recommend the NiMH rechargeable batteries as they have been designed to last for years and are not only friendly to the environment but it means you’ll spend less in the long run.

Trusted Brands

Buying from a trusted, respected brand means you are getting a bullet vibe that has been designed using high quality materials that are built to last. Some of our favourite brands include PipeDream, California Exotics and Doc Johnson, who have all been around for 20+ years. Then there are popular newcomers including Ovo and Rocks Off, who have come onto the market only recently but are giving some of the bigger companies a run for their money and breathing fresh new life into the industry. This keeps everyone on their toes and you end up winning in the end because everyone is trying to outdo one another and produce better bullet vibes all the time!

Don't choose a bullet vibrator based solely on price

Price

Price can be a real sticking point for some people. When it comes to bullet vibes, you’ll never normally need to spend more than $100 to get the absolute best of the best. Because they’re a small device without a big powerful motor, you’ll be able to spend around $30-$50 and get yourself a really good quality product made from silicone or high quality TPE. This means it’s safe to use, hygienic and feels amazing to touch. Buying a cheap vibe means it is more likely to break down, and you’ll need to keep replacing it which ends up costing more in the long run. Although, if you’re a beginner then why not grab something cheap to practice with and figure out what you like before splashing out on something a bit more luxurious. You get what you pay for, so keep this in mind when shopping for your bullet vibe.

Summary

You should now be feeling confident and excited about purchasing a new bullet vibe for your toy collection. Don’t forget to consider the type of material it’s made from, the manufacturer behind it and the size and shape. These will all affect the sort of experience you have. Bullet vibes are a fun, discreet, powerful little addition to any toy collection and you’ll love how easy they are to take out and about or travel with.
