Choosing one of the best bullet vibrators is no easy feat, they're one of the most popular types of sex toys on the market, and every brand from Lovehoney and Ann Summers to independents like Smile Makers and LELO offer their own selection.

But not all bullet vibrators are made equal, with special features like intense vibration modes and tapered tips offering extra precise pleasure. As we all have different needs in the bedroom, it’s important to find a bullet vibrator that offers the best functions for you. That's why we took up the challenge of selecting and testing the best bullet vibrators on the market, looking at a range of features to figure out if they deserve a top spot. 

Mini but mighty, a bullet vibe can be used to stimulate the clitoris, G-spot, nipples, and anus for intense pleasure. Bullets are also the best vibrator for slipping into your overnight bag, or for anyone who's looking for an extra buzz in the bedroom without all the bells and whistles of the best sex toys.

How we tested the best bullet vibrators

From small and efficient bullets with minimal settings to models that come with high-intensity levels, and toys that boast special shapes or extra features for heightened pleasure, we tested a range of the best bullet vibrators from different brands. Here, we bring you the toys that are really worth spending your money - and you can rest assured only the very best made this list. 

We used each toy several times and anything that made for a smooth, satisfying, and thrilling experience every time we used it was worthy of a place in the line-up. 

When testing the best bullet vibrators, we considered: 

  • Ease of setup - was it easy to charge or insert batteries? 
  • Ease of use - can you cycle through settings easily and comfortably while using? 
  • Shape - was it ergonomic and did it help to hit the spot?
  • Material - how comfortable was it to hold and use?
  • How powerful the vibrations were - were they too much or only just enough?
  • Whether it came with a travel lock - to stop it going off in your suitcase
  • How the device turned off - because we don't think anyone wants to scroll through 17-speed settings in order to turn off after you've climaxed 
  • Packaging - all of the models mentioned below were delivered in discreet boxes, but how environmentally friendly was the disposal?

LOVE NOT WAR MAYA bullet vibrator, one of the best bullet vibrators in our roundup

Louder on higher settings

Whether you're shopping for a first-time bullet buy or want to update your sex toy collection, the latest edition to Love Not War's range should be first on the list. Maya is sleek in both design and function, made out of premium-feeling recycled aluminium in a stunning rose gold color, with four different intensities and six speeds available. So whatever kind of orgasm you're after, this one will definitely deliver. 

But this one made the top of my list for three reasons. Firstly, this bullet vibrator is larger in size, coming in at 4.5 inches in length and 3 inches in circumference, making it easier to handle than smaller versions. The tapered tip offers more targeted stimulation than a rounded tip but it's not so pointed that it gets uncomfortable after extended use. Thanks to its size, our tester found that it could be used internally and externally for different kinds of stimulation, as well as on other erogenous zones on the body. 

Secondly, there's plenty of speeds and vibrations to choose from but not so many that you spend your whole time flicking the button trying to find the right one for you. When compared to other picks of our best bullet vibrators, there are fewer choices on the MAYA. However, as our tester found, this was plenty and as there's just one button on the base of the vibe to control all the action, any more than this would be hard to navigate in the moment - and it's not needed. 

Thirdly, it's simple to charge and move around. There's nothing more annoying than when you find the perfect vibrator, only for the batteries to drain within a few uses. And if you're anything like us, you always forget to add extra batteries onto the shopping list so it just gets put to the side. The MAYA is so simple to charge with a simple twist to the middle of the vibe, you can attach the USB cable to the internal point and plug it into the mains. This vibrator also comes with a discreet carry pouch and a quality travel lock that means there won't be any unexpected buzzing from your suitcase if you take it away with you.

We-Vibe is a favorite over here at w&h HQ, it features in many of our sex toy edits, including the best wand vibrators. This simple bullet is up there with our tester's top sex toy picks of all time - high praise, indeed. A sturdy bullet that boasts a slightly greater length than other bullet products, this vibrator is all about balancing pleasure with comfort, practicality with luxury - all while giving you a seamless experience that will leave you blissfully satisfied but at the same time eager to come back for more. At least, that's what it did for our tester.

This is one vibrator that shows its consideration in every aspect. Firstly, the longer design means that this toy sports an obvious handle - unconventional for a bullet vibrator. You can easily grip and manipulate it while you're in the throes of passion without it sliding all over the place and out of your control. Still, our favorite design aspect has to be the tapered tip. This one is a little less pointed than the MAYA and it's slanted on one side for both precision and stability. The tip provides a larger surface area for stimulation, while the pointed end allows for another level of targeted clitoral stimulation. 

But perhaps the most impressive thing about the We-Vibe Tango X is that it manages to balance both strength and subtlety in its vibrations. It gives off a powerful rumble rather than a ferocious buzz, which means that you get the benefit of the intensity without having to accustom a sensitive clitoris to the almost uncomfortable level of vibration that sometimes comes with strong vibrators, even on their lowest setting. Our tester can honestly say that it was the most pleasure they've experienced with a simple bullet. 

The We-Vibe Tango X also features all the fun of a range of different strengths and patterns, as well as the practical perks of its travel mode and the sleek magnetic charging port that adds to the premium look and feel of this vibrator. The buttons are easy to use - no stiffness insight - and their placement is thoughtful so that you can access them comfortably during use. It could even be suitable for those who suffer from vaginal dryness, as the plastic surface slides around easily, unlike some other more premium vibrators that are coated in silicone. 

It's the kind of vibrator that has a mode or intensity for most people, with thoughtful and practical features as well as a high-end look and feel - and at less than $100 /
£100 (though not by a lot), it's one we would say is well worth the investment for anyone who can afford it.

Best bullet vibrator for beginners

Specifications

RRP: $34.99 / £29.99

Vibrations may be too strong depending on personal preferences

The first thing that stands out about this Lovehoney bullet vibrator is the simple but satisfying shape, with a rounded tip that can be used both to stimulate arousal on different areas or for more targeted clitoral stimulation. The slight curve around the button on the other end also means that it's comfortable to hold while operating the button at the same time - and this curve along with the soft silicone material allows for a sturdy grip throughout use. These factors alone make this is a great option for a beginner, as it's these little details that can make all the difference between a seamless or stressful overall experience.

But what really makes this a winner on our list of best bullet vibrators for anyone making their first foray into the space is the amount of power and the number of modes that you get for your money. Three intensity levels are pretty standard when it comes to bullet vibrators, but what really made this a memorable pick was the ferocious buzz our tester was met with when turning this on to even the lowest setting. However, while this does mean that this vibrator has the capacity for some pretty earth-shattering sessions, it could be a little bit too much power for those who might prefer a softer vibration. That said, you can use just a light touch with this if you don't want so much power. 

The 17 vibration modes are one of the main features that make this the best bullet vibrator for beginners, as it gives you an opportunity to play around with different movements and feelings and really explore what works for you. Lovehoney is a favorite brand at w&h HQ, featured heavily in our guides on the best app controlled vibrators and best discreet vibrators, too.

The button can be stiff

If you're looking for something that you can drain every penny's worth out of, then this would without a doubt be our top choice. A simple bullet that took our tester all the way from their first year of university into their 20s with the same power as day one, the resilience of this modest vibrator is not to be argued with. It comes with only one vibration mode and three intensity levels but if you're one who can work with just the increasing intensity and don't need a range of vibration patterns then it will do the job just fine. 

The tapered tip was also an improvement on the brand's previous baseline bullet vibrator, which had featured a more rounded end. But this tapered tip is what really gives this the wow factor for us, as it allows you to really target the vibrations wherever feels best and most stimulating for you.

One slightly annoying factor with this one, is that you have to cycle through the settings to turn it off. And as the button can be quite stiff, it can be quite uncomfortable on the pads of your fingers when you have to cycle through. It also doesn't come with the premium feel that our other best bullet vibrators do, with quite a hollow plastic material. But at such an affordable price and with such long-lasting power, these small grievances are totally acceptable.

Gathers lint easily

Just like the treat factor of a fancy hotel injects a little thrill into a dalliance, there's always that frisson of excitement when getting out a luxury vibrator for a solo night in. And the Dame Pom piques that sensation before you've even taken it out of the embroidered cloth storage bag. 

Now while this isn't a typical bullet-shaped vibrator, it gives you everything a bullet would with its convenient functions and compact silhouette. In fact, it's even smaller than some of the other best bullet vibrators on the list. But the design of the tip introduces another level of clitoral stimulation, which is why our tester opted for this model over the brand's traditional bullet vibrator, the Zee. And that extra level of clitoral stimulation is thanks to the quite-clever pinched tip that nestles itself against your clitoris while the rest of the device hugs your vulva for all-around pleasure. It doesn't have quite the precision as something with a pointed tip, so if you prefer that kind of style this might not be for you, but it does stimulate the area well. The distinctive shape also means that the other side of the device almost molds to your hand so that you can simply press this onto your body, rather than having to try and find a good grip. The simple buttons also sit in a way that is comfortable to access during use, so that you can build up to a climax without interruption.

When it comes to the vibrations, the Pom emits a soft but strong rumble that, like with the We-Vibe Tango X, isn't too harsh on the sensitive clitoral area. The initial vibrations aren't as powerful as with the Tango X, but with five intensities that are more than made up for when you hit the higher settings. As for the premium factor, everything from the fancy storage bag, to the interiors-worthy hues, the elegant shape, smooth material, and the slick magnetic charging port all speak to the luxuriousness of this quite unpretentious-looking bullet vibe. Even the grace of its movement and how it bends so seamlessly to allow for personalized stimulation and satisfaction is a high-end feature that we've not seen in any other small vibrator.

The only niggle our tester had with this - and it really is just a small niggle - is that the soft silicone material meant that this vibrator collected lint quite easily. Even when taking it out of the storage bag, it manages to attract little fibers that are seemingly impossible to get off without using a wipe or liquid. Of course, it's always important to know how to clean a vibrator safely after use, but our tester wasn't expecting to have to do it beforehand too. Still, they said on their not-so-lazy days, it's one they definitely don't mind having a pre-session spritz for a little high-end thrill.

Not very slippery (while our tester liked this, it could be an issue with anyone who suffers from dryness)

Smile Makers is known for their colorful and out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to sex toy design - and they've once again managed to bring that element of playfulness and innovation to what could otherwise be just a simple (yet pretty powerful) bullet vibrator. Aside from the eye-catching color and thoughtful contouring which makes for a comfortable grip, what stands out most about this model is the addition of the 'fins' that sit on the rounded head. Their inconspicuous size could almost pass for a cosmetic design feature but these simple little bumps really elevate the pleasure factor by adding another level of clitoral stimulation.

And the strong vibrations that this toy boasts go hand-in-hand with the 'fins' to make this a great bullet vibrator pick. Even the lowest setting will give you an impressive rumble (which isn't quite as alarming as the buzz from the Lovehoney Ignite) and the fact that it does this at a truly whisper-quiet volume is admirable and something we haven't seen in any other toy we've used. This is definitely one to keep by your bed if you share a home with others. As for moving through the settings, it's a smooth transition from one speed to another, which makes for a pleasant and uninterrupted experience. And unlike some other small vibrators which leave you to laboriously scroll through speeds and patterns to turn off, it features a 'hold down to turn off' function - an underrated but much-appreciated capability when you're ready to finish up.

Our tester really liked the premium feel of the smooth surface, however, it's not the most slippery of materials so this toy might be best paired with one of the best lubes on the market. And while it does offer a good climax, our tester personally didn't find that it quite gave the earth-shattering feels of a clitoral stimulator or something with a slightly pointier tip. However, if you prefer something without the precision of a pointy tip then you can't go wrong with this simultaneously fun, but considerately practical, model.

A bullet vibrator that can give you similar sensations to both a clitoral stimulator and wand vibrator while also reaching your G-spot as well as the best rabbit vibrators do - this vibrator is a beacon of versatility. Now we're not saying this one device will do all three of those jobs as well as a specialized toy would, but it does have a finger in every pie and it pulls off each of them to a good degree. It gives off a strong buzz even on the lowest setting and with five intensity levels, this vibe gives you a good spectrum of power to play around with - whether it's for precise clitoral stimulation, a rumble against your G-spot, or to create titillating sensations elsewhere on your body.

The versatility of this modest-looking bullet vibrator also means that you can use this for much more than a quickie - it gives you the scope to really draw out your session for the ultimate pleasure. Not only can you ramp up from teasing vibrations to G-spot and clitoral stimulation, but you can also switch between the device's seven different vibration patterns for an extra level of excitement. Our tester also really appreciated the shape of the tip, as the slight point allowed for more precise clitoral stimulation.

As for the practicalities of using this model, the buttons sit in a really convenient place so it's easy and comfortable to use. And the premium-feeling material makes for a smooth feel that allows for a little more movement than the silicone in the Smile Makers Surfer. It's on the quiet side and has the handy 'hold down to turn off' function so you don't have to cycle through all the settings when you're done - very convenient when a toy comes with this many modes. 

The only negative for our tester is that there's no travel lock on this bullet vibrator, which made for a slightly elevated heart rate (for the wrong reasons) when they once decided to take it through security at the airport.

For satisfying and reliable sex toys that boast a premium feel and a touch of innovation, LELO is our go-to brand. Their Sona 2 Cruise clitoral stimulator is second-to-none. So of course, the brand has a pretty impressive bullet vibrator to offer. And while it's by no means our tester's favorite LELO product (that crown sits with the Enigma, which has been reviewed in our best overall vibrators piece), it's definitely up there with their top bullet vibrator picks. 

A traditional lipstick bullet vibrator, this could almost pass for a MAC bestseller, so it should tick the box for anyone after the more conventionally discreet bullet shape. While the vibrations aren't out-of-this-world, this does boast a pretty satisfying buzz that you can steadily increase as you build up to a climax. And the addition of the multiple pattern modes makes for another level of pleasure and means that you can draw out your session if you want to have a bit more fun. What does inject another layer of stimulation is the rounded conical shape of the tip that really allows you to be precise with your movements and direct the vibrations wherever feels best for you.

The plastic material of this vibrator means this model slides around easily, making it a good option for anyone who doesn't want to use lube with their toy. And what's even better is that the plastic casing doesn't come with the hollow feel of the Ann Summers bullet vibrator, meaning that the device maintains its higher-end feel, despite the lack of silicone (which is only used on the button area). 

When it comes to the practicality of the buttons, they are easy to use, without any stiffness, and sit on a convenient area of the vibrator so you can play around with settings during use without any discomfort. What really makes this my one of our top picks for traveling is the super convenient charging port that you can simply plug into any USB charger - no wire required. Overall, the LELO MIA 2 provides a pleasant and satisfying experience that is convenient to take on the road with you thanks to its practical features and even more practical shape and size. It probably won't give you the most mind-blowing orgasms (at least it didn't for our tester), but it's a good addition to your weekend bag if you want to have a bit of fun on a night away.

Some elements of the app are a bit "buggy"

At w&h we've also been testing out the best app-controlled vibrators, and our tester picked out the Svakom Phoenix Neo Interactive as the best app-controlled bullet vibrator. In her review, our tester picked out the design elements as one the first impressive aspects about the device, with its slick and stylish silhouette and the handy drawstring bag for storage. However, as not just a pretty face, the Svakom Phoenix Neo Interactive is built with sophisticated technology that packs in 11 different vibrations, scaling from juicy foreplay to mind-blowing stimulation.

While it might look intimidating, the unique shape of this toy helps to both stimulate the vagina internally and stimulate the clitoris at the same, as the bigger ridged bulb sits inside the vagina (quite comfortably), while the flexible neck means it's easy to manipulate the smaller end into position for perfect clitoral placement. It also boasts a snug fit, meaning that you're able to go completely hands-free without worrying about to slipping out or sliding around, helped by the soft silicone material, which tends to be a comfortable surface to work with.

In terms of the controls, our reviewer noted that they were easy to use on the device itself but that the the app function is also an addition that's great for solo play or living out your sexual fantasies and handing power to your partner, as you can cycle through patterns and intensities or even set the vibration to react to and echo sounds and music from your phone. 

It can even be used together with sex video sites to really hit the sweet spot, advises our reviewer, so if you fancy going down this route our guides on porn for women and sex stories are full of inspiration. However, one niggle that she did note was that the app would freeze or crash when syncing up with her phone iTunes library, but found that this was remedies by streaming to the app from a computer using Wi-Fi.

Another pick from eco-concious sex toy brand Love Not War, the Amore bullet is the perfect, pocket-sized vibe for first-timers. Our tester loved the sleek design that looks and feels premium but costs under $85/£70

The tapered, body-safe silicone head offers a precise range of stimulation, with a little flexibility so it can easily be moved to hit the right spot. The Amore can also be pressed firmly against the clitoris for a broader sensation or it can be used for external stimulation such as nipple play. 

The small but mighty motor offers a range of vibrations, from deep slow rumbles to intense patterns for experienced vibe users. While it’s not silent (not many vibrators are) it is relatively quiet, and quieter than some of the other toys we've tested. With one button at the base of the vibe, you can easily cycle through the vibration patterns and turn it off with a hard three second press. To activate/deactivate the travel lock, press the button firmly for six seconds. 

Our tester was particularly impressed with the brand’s eco credentials. All of Love Not War’s vibrators are built to last, and are repairable or recyclable. If there’s an issue with your toy, the brand will repair it for you and if it’s not repairable they will recycle it at their custom-build, green-powered factory. The rechargeable battery is also compatible with all Love Not War toys, so you only need one battery and can buy other toy heads separately - genius! 

Love Not War also offers free, discreet shipping to the US & UK and all products come with a storage bag for safe keeping. The only downside to this vibrator was the charging time.

Broad tip not as targeted

At w&h HQ we’re big fans of sexual wellness brand Satisfyer, so it’s no surprise it features in our best bullet round-up just as it did in our edit of the best rabbit vibrators and best body wand vibrators, too. One of the brand’s most affordable vibrators - the Ultra Power Bullet 1 - offers an impressive range of intensity levels with plenty of variety to ensure you never get bored. There’s a setting for everyone, whether you want slow deep rumbles or a fast, pulsing sensation for a quick climax. Thanks to its waterproof design, you can use it safely in water whether you’re enjoying solo bath time or shower sex with a partner. 

Its small size makes it ideal for beginners, as well as couples who want to introduce toys into their sex life. It can easily be slipped between you and your partner for an extra buzz in the sheets. However, our tester noted if you want targeted stimulation, this might not be the bullet vibrator for you. With a broader tip, the Satisfyer is best for those who want all-encompassing vibrations. 

Made from medical-grade silicone, it’s super easy to clean, too (see our guide to how to clean sex toys for expert advice), and it comes with a 15-year guarantee so you can rest assured you’ll enjoy this toy for years to come.

Hot Octopuss’ Amo finger sized bullet is small but mighty. With six intensity levels and five vibration modes, there’s a mix of broad buzzes and targeted vibrations for those who want to experience more precise sensations. It has the best of both worlds with a tapered end allowing for spot-on clitoral stimulation (or to arouse those erogenous zones) and a broader side for rumbles that travel all over the body. 

Like many other vibrators on our list, the Amo is made from body-safe silicone and it’s 100% waterproof for even more fun. Plus, thanks to its small and discreet size it's perfect for on-the-go. Although, it’s worth noting the Amo doesn’t come with a travel pouch. 

Our tester was impressed at how powerful this mini vibe is, and compared to others in this round-up it had a quieter motor (although it wasn’t silent). However, they had difficulty changing the settings in the throes of passion, due to the positioning of the buttons on the silicone material instead of the plastic end. The Amo also has a short running time of just 40 minutes, so you’ll want to always keep your USB charging cable to hand. 

What are the benefits of a bullet vibrator? 

There are many benefits to using one of the best bullet vibrators over other types like rabbit vibrators and clitoral stimulators. “Bullets are perfect for those that might be intimidated by larger products or one’s with added features as they are simple and easy to incorporate into pleasure,” explains Megwyn White (opens in new tab), Director of Education at Satisfyer (opens in new tab)

What’s more, bullets are ideal for travel as they’re small, discreet and easy to store. “ They also enhance many erotic activities like oral sex or [they can be used] as a foreplay tool for teasing the body before more intense stimulation,” Megwn adds.  

What you need to know if you’re buying a bullet vibrator for the first time

When shopping for a bullet vibrator for the first time, they are a few key considerations to make. To figure out which bullet vibe will suit your needs, it's important to think about:

  • What kind of shape do you want - we all have different needs, so while some may prefer a smooth rounded shape, others might want something a bit more pointed for more targeted pleasure and some may be satisfied with a wider head that can be used in more general areas. 
  • How many modes and intensities you'd prefer - this is a totally personal choice as some may just like steady vibrations  while others prefer a range of intensities and pulsing patterns.
  • What material is comfortable for you - some may enjoy using plastic for a smooth experience, while others might prefer silicone for a more luxurious touch. Megwn also suggests considering if you want a waterproof toy to take shower sex to the next level, too. 
  • If you'll be using it alone - while most of the best bullet vibrators are designed to use in whatever way you want - either alone or with a partner - there are some that come with remote controls, apps, or Bluetooth functions so that you can be stimulated by a partner even if they're halfway across the world from you.
  • Whether you want to take it travelling with you - if so, a travel lock is a must so that you don't have any suitcase mishaps. Alternatively, you could opt for a battery-powered model so that you can just remove the batteries while traveling.
  • How it feels in your hand - If you are new to bullets, test the vibration in a more sensitive area like the underside of your wrist. Take note not only of the intensity to your skin but also to the fingers which hold the vibe If it's too buzzy it can be uncomfortable in the hand. If you find it too intense you may want to either opt for a model with more variety of strength.
