Whenever I think of that one toy I haven’t used in far too long, the rummaging ends up killing my ladyboner and then some. It leaves me feeling like I felt after using the Posh Pocket: frustrated and bummed.

Fortunately, companies like Lovehoney are making it easier for those of us who are absent-minded clutter-queens with the Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator. This nearly five inch long firm silicone vibrator seems standard enough at first glance, but it has one little feature that makes a world of difference: it charges in any standard USB port.  All you have to do is pull on the end of this little buzzer to expose the USB insert, stick in in your computer, and voila! You’ve got power.

As I say in pretty much every review, small vibrators typically leave me feeling unsatisfied. Even when I combine them with other activities and sensations, the vibrations are never strong enough to inspire much more than irritation. When I first saw the Flash USB Vibe on the Lovehoney site, I was hoping it would exceed my expectations of mini-vibes. My ability to lose batteries and chargers is unprecedented, and my masturbatory habits have absolutely felt the effect. Being able to plug my vibrator into my computer, which at this point has practically become an organ, would be a solution to the major reason I avoid using my toys.

Much to my delight, the Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator did not disappoint. It wasn’t as strong as my favorite go-to vibrator, but let’s be real: that would be too much to expect. Comparing a mini-vibe to a strong wand vibe is like comparing peaches and pies. Aside from that unjust comparison, this is the strongest mini-vibe I have ever had the pleasure of using!

Although I only got the toy a week ago, it has seen many uses already, and has been designated my new travel vibe. After all, what better vibe to take on the road than one I can charge without any extra attachments or fuss? As of now, I’m unsure how long the charge will last without being plugged in; it has been so easy to just pop it into my computer while I’m working that the issue hasn’t come up.

The Flash USB Mini-Vibe costs $39.99, which is a little more expensive than most other mini-vibes, but the quality of the toy itself justifies the price difference. The quality and feel of the silicone, the variety of vibration options (four patterns and three levels of intensity), and the sturdiness of this little vibe are more comparable to a high end vibrator than one of the throwaway mini-vibes that don’t have much of an effect. According to its specs, the vibrator is also submergible.

The little vibe is ahead of the curve when it comes to technology, and packs quite the punch for such a little toy. After finding myself mourning the death of my vibrator mid-wank right before bed far too many times, the Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator is a godsend. Hallelujah!
