These two have an excellent battery life and great performance in other important areas. There are some longer-lasting bullet and mini vibrators, but they generally underperform overall.

When It Matters


Most bullets or mini vibrators lasted 75 minutes or longer, but their battery life ranged from 40 minutes to 139 minutes. If you intend to use your vibrator’s top settings often, you’ll either want to pick an option with a long life or be intentional about charging it after each use.

If you choose a powerful bullet vibrator, you’ll likely use the low and middle levels too, which will extend the battery life beyond our test result values from running the vibrator on its max setting.

Battery Life on High Power

Show All Scores (Click to See):

We measure battery life by fully charging all the bullet and mini vibrators, then running them on their most powerful setting until they die. We time the test and record how long each bullet or mini vibrator lasted.

We run the bullet vibrators on their top constant setting because it uses the most power. So any experience you have using the bullet or mini vibrator normally will be greater than or equal to our measurement since you’ll likely use some of the lower powers on occasion.

For testing, we set a timer and check in on the bullet vibrators every 5 minutes to find which ones are still vibrating. 

While there are some battery-operated bullets and mini vibrators out there, in our experience battery-operated toys tend to be cheaply made and perform poorly. They can also get expensive in the long run with the recurring battery cost. So we have not tested any bullets that use regular AA or AAA batteries because we don’t generally recommend these toys. But we would consider it in the future if we find one that looks promising. 

Our scoring system does take battery-operated bullet vibrators into account if we ever add one to our collection. Bullet vibrators that use batteries you need to keep buying cannot receive a Battery Life rating above 5.9.

Final Thoughts


Fun Factory Laya III and We-Vibe Tango X

The We-Vibe Tango X and Fun Factory Laya III are two of my favorite bullet and mini vibrators with above-average battery life. I can play with these for over an hour and a half and can often get multiple uses on one charge.
