What is a Pocket Vibrator?

A Pocket Vibrator is a type of small external vibe named because it easily fits into your pocket or purse and is perfect for on the go.

It is sometimes referred to as a Pocket Rocket Vibrator because they are not only portable but are fairly powerful little things too. That’s not to say that they are the most powerful vibrators you can get, but they are so popular because the power that they do have is focused to a single point, making the tip of the toy feel pretty intense. 

Because a Pocket Vibrators power is so focused they are very popular for use on the clitoris but they can also be used anywhere else external on the body, such as the nipples, scrotum or any other erogenous zone.

What Makes a Great Pocket Vibrator?

Why are these vibrators so popular you ask? Well, there are a bunch of features that set them apart from other vibes.

Size

Firstly, their size. In general, Pocket Vibrators are about 4-inch-long and 1-inch-wide which makes them perfect for popping in your pocket and taking them with when you travel, or if you are just going to visit a lover. This is actually a bit bigger than a bullet vibrator but that means that it can accommodate a larger motor and is typically more powerful. So if you are after something with a lot of power then go for a slightly larger option.

Styles 

Another feature that makes these vibrators so popular is that many of the styles available actually come with interchangeable heads. This means that you can remove one head and replace it with something slightly different.

In most cases, it will be a different texture or material so that you can feel a different sensation but there are also heads available that can change the toy entirely. 

You can get bunny eared heads which sit around the clitoris rather than flat against it, or you can even get a longer g-spot stimulator attachment which turns the toy into an external vibe.

Material

The toy's material is another feature that sets this toy apart, as most of them are made from plastic. While hard plastic might not seem so appealing for an internal toy, they remain hugely popular for clitoral toys as they carry vibration much better than softer materials do. While materials like silicone and TPE will absorb some of the vibrations, hard plastic retains power throughout so you will feel the full force of the motor.

Quick Take - The Best Pocket Vibrators

Review of the Best Pocket Vibrators

Here are some examples of the different types of Pocket Vibrators available and what makes them so great.

1. BASICS Powerful Pocket Clitoral Vibrator

This cute and cheerful little vibe is a perfect beginner option for those that have never tried a Pocket Vibrator before. The BASICS Powerful Pocket Clitoral Vibrator is made of hard ABS plastic and has a beaded head for extra stimulation. It also comes with four interchangeable heads so that you can experience different types of stimulation.

This is a very easy style to use as it is battery operated and also single speed so once it is on there is no need to muck around with buttons trying to change the speed. And, even though it’s small, it packs a pretty punch when it comes to power. That was a nice surprise!

Pros

  • Perfect for a beginner as it’s so easy to use.
  • Interchangeable heads for extra stimulation.
  • Hard plastic so it carries a strong vibration through to your body.

Cons

  • Short battery life. This battery dies seriously quick.
  • It’s pretty noisy, so be careful if you live with others.
  • Not waterproof. So you can’t use it in the bath or shower and it also makes it a bit tricky to clean.

Bottom Line

Overall, I think that is a great option for people that want to experience a Pocket Vibrator but don’t want to spend too much money. I recommended it for beginners, but if you are already a bit more experienced with external toys then this might be a bit disappointing.

2. Pocket Party Rocket Rabbit Ears Clitoral Vibrator

This pocket Vibrator is a bit different from the first one. While it may initially look similar it is actually made from TPE which is a soft, fleshly feeling material. And remember those bunny ears I talked about earlier? This vibe has them!

The Pocket Party Rocket Rabbit Ears Clitoral Vibe comes with an extra sleeve that you can pop over the top to make it a bunny. The ears then stimulate your clitoris, or wherever you are using it.

Because TPE is a flexible material, you can really maneuverer the ears to hit just where you like it, and it will feel nice and soft against your skin too. This one also measures 6 inches so is a bit longer than some of the other styles available. My favorite feature is that this one is waterproof, so there is no limit to where you can use it and it makes cleaning up super easy.

Pros

  • Smooth TPE feels really nice against your skin.
  • The bunny ears attachment makes for a totally different experience.
  • Fully waterproof. This means you can even submerge it in a bath and it will still work.

Cons

  • The quality of this toy isn’t great and it tends to break easily.
  • It’s noisy. Unfortunately, this toy is another one with a noisy motor.
  • Due to being made from TPE, the vibrations are not as powerful as hard plastic options.

Bottom Line

I think that this toy is ideal for those that prefer a softer material over hard plastic but be aware that this isn’t made to last and is really only for beginners. If you love playing in the water though then this will be great!

3. Pocket Exotics Double Bullet Vibrator

The Pocket Exotics Double Bullet Vibrator looks pretty different from most Pocket Vibrators because this one actually has two vibrators attached to a remote control. And you know what double the vibrators mean right? Double the fun!

This type of pocket vibrator can actually be used internally or externally. You control the bullets using the remote and they are both multi-speed so you can really use this toy in all sorts of different ways.

The two bullets are also waterproof but do you need to be careful how you use them because the remote part is not. I recommend keeping the toy away from water unless you are cleaning it, just to be on the safe side.

Pros

  • You get two bullets! And you can use them anywhere you like.
  • It is multi-speed so you can decide how intense you want it to be.
  • Having a remote control means that you don’t need to fumble around with the toy while it’s in use.

Cons

  • The silver coating over the bullets makes them super slippery once you add lubricant.
  • It’s noisy. This seems to be a running theme amongst this type of vibrator and this one is no different.
  • If you use lube, you pretty much won’t be able to use this toy externally. It will be way too slippery to hold on to.

Bottom Line

This is a pretty cool idea but overall it is just too tricky to use. If you want to use it solely as an internal toy, then it should work for you though.

4. Lelo Mia 2 Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator

The Lelo Mia 2 is one of the higher end Pocket Vibrators on the market, so will cost you quite a bit more, but you really get what you pay for with this one. This is a USB rechargeable vibrator so you don’t need to worry about batteries. For that reason, it will also be more powerful than a battery operated option.

This one is made of hard plastic and is completely waterproof so you can use it anywhere you like. Being a Lelo product it also comes with an antibacterial storage pouch and a 1-year warranty, so you know its designed to last. The Mia is also multi-speed and has 6 different vibration patterns so you can explore the levels and find the one that is perfect for you.

Pros

  • Multi-speed and multi-pattern so you can use it exactly the way you like it.
  • USB rechargeable. You can literally charge it with your laptop and never have to replace batteries.
  • Storage pouch. In my opinion, too few sex toys come with a storage option for it, so I love it when they do.

Cons

  • The vibrations are quite shallow so it is more of a buzzy vibration than a rumbly one.
  • The buttons are a little hard to push when in use and it is difficult to get to the mode you want.
  • The USB cap isn’t as secure as I would like. If it pops off, it will no longer be waterproof.

Bottom Line

This is a great quality Lelo product for those that have some experience with clitoral vibes. Just beware if you love rumbly toys, this likely won’t cut it for you.

5. Vibratex Water Dancer Waterproof Pocket Massager

As the name suggests, the Water Dancer vibe is a waterproof Pocket Vibrator that is known for its long lasting battery life. For one of the cheaper options, this one really offers bang for buck as it holds onto its battery life for a really long time and you won’t need to change them very often. It also has 4 interchangeable heads so you can mix it up when you play.

Pros

  • It is super long lasting!
  • It’s waterproof and you can use it anywhere.
  • It has interchangeable heads with different stimulations.

Cons

  • It looks pretty cheap and is one of the least attractive options.
  • It only has 1 speed which may not be powerful enough for some users.
  • The material is fairly cheap and the outer part is known to crack quite easily.

Bottom Line

If you are careful with it then you will get a lot of use out of this vibrator, but being 1 speed, it really is designed for beginners.

Conclusion

In my opinion, Pocket Rockets are the perfect beginner vibe for ladies that want to explore clitoral stimulation. However, the quality in most cases is not the best, so if you want something that is designed to last, you will need to pay more. I suggest looking for a waterproof option to get the most bang for your buck.
