Heated Rechargeable Vibrator

Flamingo Pretty Love Heated Vibrator

Rechargeable vibrator, gold plated, and it warms up! This is my review of the Flamingo by Pretty Love. Find out what’s good about it and what’s not so good.

What’s in the box?

Inside the box was your Flamingo rechargeable vibrator with heat control presented on a protective foam bed, a USB charger in a separate little box, a small bag, and a set of instructions.

What does it look like?

Being gold-plated it looks a very expensive and luxurious vibrator. There’s currently only one colour available, black and gold. I hope that in future versions there may be other colours available.

Perhaps a deep pink and gold would look nice, especially being called Flamingo. Black is my least favourite colour for a sex toy, but the gold-plating certainly makes up for it.

What does it feel like?

The Flamingo does feel quite heavy compared to other vibrators but I like that because it feels sturdier and more well-built. It’s what you’d exGold plated vibrator heating flamingopect from a rechargeable vibrator.

I love the feel. It’s soft and smooth and is made of medical grade silicone giving it that silky feel you only get with silicone toys. Plus it’s gold-plated.

  • Tip – Only use water-based lube with the vibrator to avoid damaging the silicone coating. Silicone-based lubes degrade silicone coating.

How big is it?

The Flamingo is 6.5 inches and is insertable up to 4.5 inches. The heating and vibrating end is the largest side with the gold-plating.

How is it powered?

Unusually this vibrator is charged up via USB. It comes with a USB plug which slots into the vibrator and then the other end into a USB socket. You can either plug it into the USB socket on your laptop or computer, or you can buy a USB mains adapters which plugs into the mains.

A mains plug would be more preferable rather than USB – but it’s certainly better than using batteries that run out and are expensive to replace. Being a rechargeable vibrator means you can always have the vibrator ready to use any time and not have to worry about having no batteries.

Charging takes 2 hours and you get around one and a half hours of playtime.

How loud is it?

I was pleasantly surprised with how nice and quiet the Flamingo was, despite how powerful the vibrations are. I have always found rechargeable vibrators packed with power and this one is no different.

Does it really work?

Aside from being gold-plated, what’s different about the Flamingo is the way it warms up to 48°C. The idea is that the warmer your skin, the more blood is drawn to there so if your lower regions are warmed up by the vibrator, the pleasure is increased.

I have to say it does feel very nice having a hot vibrator between your legs and you can liken the feel to being like a warm mouth! There’s also a nice curve to it for hitting the G-spot which I always love so this was an added bonus. It’s also perfect for using just on the clit.

How do you use it?

The Flamingo rechargeable vibrator is very simple to use and only has two buttons.

One button is used for the heat control and the other button is for switching the vibrations on and off and moving between the 7 vibration functions.

To switch the vibrations on you just press and hold down the vibrations button. Then to move through the functions keep pressing the button. To switch off you press and hold the button down.

To switch on the heat you just press the heat button, and the same to switch the heat off.

It takes a couple of minutes to heat up to full temperature which is a bit like waiting for your hair straighteners to warm up – although obviously it’s not as hot as those!

What settings does it have?

There are 7 functions of vibration and one heat setting:

  1. Steady Vibration
  2. Slow Pulse
  3. Fast Pulse
  4. Slow Escalating Pulse
  5. Fast Pulsing Pattern
  6. Constant Pulse

My favourite was slow escalating pulse because it feels like a tease. I also like the steady vibration.

What are the good points?

  • This rechargeable vibrator means that it can be ready to use whenever you like without having to bother about having batteries in stock.
  • It arrives already charged so you can use it right away. (This brings back memories of my We-Vibe 3 review which was the opposite and had to be charged a full 24 hours before we could use it so immediate use makes me feel very grateful!)
  • gold-plated-rechargeable-vibratorIt heats up and feels lovely when it’s all warm.

What are the bad points?

  • It’s not waterproof but is ‘splashproof’ which means you can wash it, but you need to be careful not to get any water inside the control area. Don’t submerge it under water.
  • It is a more expensive vibrator but with all it’s features it’s bound to cost a bit more.

This Pretty Love rechargeable vibrator is only available at Bondara. £54.99 including delivery.
