WeVibe Charger Cable Hack

When you buy something new and exciting, you automatically think of all the cool new features and tech-y things it can do.  Our minds tend to slip of the information and the things that come along with it like up keep, warranties, etc. etc.  Then, the one main feature is the one thing that might hinder your use of it or even annoy you, like being rechargeable.

One of my favorite adult toy companies out there is We Vibe but sometimes their charging cord and adapter really likes to irk me at times, almost as much as Fun Factory’s charging adapter too.  Both have a magnetic adapter that snaps together connect the USB power cord to the toy.

So you can imagine my frustration when, I’ve walked away for a couple hours with the thought in mind that my toy is comfortably charging this entire time… to come back and find that it’s completely dead still since I didn’t have the connectors hit perfectly.

The cords have been wrapped tight to be shipped and stored away in the pretty packaging but it takes a hot minute for it to unwrap, de-kink and stay straight.  You can always go the “Put a heavy book on it route” or! You can do my little troubleshooting hack!

Very rarely do I recommend you to keep the box to a toy (unless they are the crazy type that require to have it for their warranty) .  But this time I think it’s a great idea if you have a Wevibe Tango or Touch!  The box it comes in has the perfect small indention for the cord to weave through and it won’t wiggle like a worm.   Just a small hack I tend to do when the cords just don’t seem to like to stay in place. ;P If you decorate the box, it also help for discretion while charging.

Hope that helps all you kiddos out there! <3 <3 <3

Doc Johnson’s Wonderland Massager

WonderlandSometimes, massagers have hiccups. These are a few troubleshooting tips I give to some customers and usually it fixes the situation.

  • troThere is a sticker that tells you the direction on how to put the battery in. Sometimes, the adhesive isn’t that great and tends fall down by the connector at the base and it gets a bit wonky.  The sticker blocks the connection from the battery to the toy.  It’ll either not work at all, only sometimes, or it won’t skip through the various functions smoothly.  Grab some tweezers, so you can take the sticker out.
  • Make sure the positive (aka the “+”, the nipple of batteries) is facing down when you drop it in.  If not, and it’s flipped the wrong way, it will have a continuous 1 speed vibration.
  • Make sure the spring on the cap is a-ok.  By that, I mean isn’t bent.  It needs to connect with the battery to make it work.

These toys have a few features that make it distinct and you’d know if it is defective.  (It says on the box: pic below)

Doc Johnson has a 90-day warranty for defective products. Only downer is you have to pay $15 bucks for shipping and handling in order for anything to move forward including age verification.  Maybe I’m just lazy but I’d rather just buy a new toy.  The shipping and handling is 1/3 the price of buying a new one. *shrug*
