This is a revised review after receiving my warranty replacement from Lelo and with more experience with the Gigi. The original item took 12 hours to charge and would be dead in two days. It later developed a problem with the power buttons and became very difficult to turn off. These problems were probably related. The replacement arrived three days after Lelo received my returned item in totally discrete packaging. The replacement charged up in only one hour compared to 12 for the defective one and seems to function perfectly. Aside from getting no response other than a robo email on the warranty claim made to the web site, which was quickly remedied by an email to customer service, I am happy with the customer support.
We are an older couple and I bought this for the wife for Christmas as a first sex toy and surprised her in bed with the gift. Well she was leery at first but in a few minutes she was having a really, really good time. Definitely gave her an orgasm to be jealous of and she did give it a double thumbs up with comments like "best Christmas present ever". It is a bit small for couples work, the base of the vibrator is small for a man to hold onto properly and if any lubrication gets on the smooth plastic base it becomes hard to hold and control. The vibrations seemed to be intense enough for her and I find we use it mostly on less than the maximum setting. It is just long enough to really reach the far side of her g-spot and the back wall of her vagina. I really enjoy using this on her and she definitely gives it a five star rating also. It is stylish and benign enough in appearance that she feels comfortable traveling with it. All said highly recommended by us.
