Motorhead Overkill Power Classic Vibrator Review

Edit: The Motörhead line has gone on to the great nightstand in the sky. If you are looking for a fun take on a basic vibe, I suggest something like this, which is available in multiple awesome designs!

The Motörhead Overkill 7 Function Power Classic Vibrator and I were pretty much destined for each other. A while back I talked about my years-long love for classic smoothie vibes. The first vibrator that ever worked for me was a hard plastic smoothie and they’ve held a place in my heart ever since. I’ve never let go of that first one (or I may have replaced it with an identical one, my memory is fuzzy), I fell for my beloved pirate vibe during the Superhero tour and then last year Lovehoney won me over with the Tracey Cox Supersex Power Vibe. I have a real thing for these things.

But I also had very strong feelings about how newer ones were being made, I had noticed that the smoothie vibes were being made to run off AAA batteries instead of Cs. Folks assured me this didn’t equal less power but it seemed flimsier to me- and all-around less beefy. I have been clinging to the big beefy C battery smoothies for dear life and refusing to try the smaller AAA interlopers. So, what made me change my mind? Motörhead, man!

Motorhead Overkill 7 Function Power Classic Vibrator

Look at this thing!!

So, what’s the deal with this toy? It’s a submersible smoothie vibe with 3 speeds and 4 patterns. It runs off 3 AAA batteries. It looks badass, loving my pirate vibe like I do lusting after this was no surprise!

How does it work? Easy push-button control.

How does it feel? It’s hard plastic – a nonporous, body safe material btw – which is the traditional material for a toy of this kind. Because it uses the AAA batteries instead of the Cs there is much less battery rattling than I’m used to.

No, seriously, how does it feel? Well, if you’ve been reading me for any period of time you have noticed a recurring vibrator theme: I need my toys to cover a lot of surface area, I also need to be able to get some leverage on them for pushing  against my body- they can’t be floppy. Add to that a motor that is reasonably strong and not buzzy  and I’m pretty much good to go. Smoothies do the job- I tend to take one with me on all road trips! The awesome news? The Motörhead Overkill 7 Function Power Classic Vibrator more than delivers. For reals. Is it the strongest, most powerful vibe ever? No but, seriously, the steady vibrations actually impressed me and proved my whole “AAAs can’t get it done like Cs” theory very wrong! It gets the job done for me (who tends to require strength over large areas) and I can definitively say that the Overkill is a good, strong vibe that I would recommend to anyone looking for something straightforward and strong.

Vibes like this may not have many bells and whistles but for me they are good, classic workhorses. The Motörhead line has of toys has added a badass look to a toy that could be pretty standard otherwise.

 

Things I’m down with:

  • This thing looks badass!
  • Surprisingly powerful
  • It’s submersible.
  • It’s nonporous and cleaning is a breeze. Soap and water will do it.

Things that make me go grr:

  •  I should mention that it is a battery operated toy and that does add to your lifetime cost.
  • The price point on this one is a little problematic for me. Yes it’s strong, yes it’s cool but $45 for a hard plastic smoothie vibe feels a bit pricey.

The Motörhead line has gone on to the great nightstand in the sky. If you are looking for a fun take on a basic vibe, I suggest something like this, which is available in multiple awesome designs!
