Follow Up Friday: My Fixation Couples Vibe & Panty

Over a year ago I reviewed a wearable vibe called the Fixation Couples Vibe.  It was an interesting toy but it didn’t quite work well for me and was a little too buzzy for my liking (check out my full review for more).  Since then, I hadn’t thought much about the toy and I recently pulled it out to pass on to a new home.  I decided I would mark sure it would still hold a charge only to be disappointed that it would not charge at all and was completely dead.  I contacted the company and was informed that the battery only has a shelf life of 1 year and that if it is not charged it will die and the warranty was expired so it would not be replaced.  I have never heard of a battery having a shelf life and it makes me want to go and check all of my toys that I don’t use often.  I also had no desire to pull it out and try it since the review, so that does show my actual interest and enjoyment of the toy.  However, it’s kinda of sad, the thought that the toy was not loved enough that it just died.
