It is the come back of the pulsators, with the Fun Factory Stronic Petite! And if I speak about return, it is because it is not a first! Indeed, several years ago, Fun Factory had already launched a range of pulsators, a kind of vibrator that goes back and forth using a system of powerful magnets inside. On the website, the first pulsator you could discover was the Stronic Drei, the third model of the first series!
Then, a few years later again, the German firm came back on the market with the Stronic Bi Fusion, which was not excellent, we must admit. It is really with the release of the Stronic G and Stronic Surf that Fun Factory succeeded in regaining its public, not to mention the Sundaze, even if this one was more oriented towards new users. So why release the Stronic Petite? What does it bring compared to the others? That’s the whole concept of this review! So without wasting any more time, here is our review of the Stronic Petite pulsator from Fun Factory !
Fun Factory Stronic Petite packaging
As for a long time at Fun Factory, we have a box that we are already used to find, since it is the same concept of rectangular box a little copper/gold surrounded by a sheath and which shows us on the front face, the Stronic Petite in picture! We have on this face, a blue/green background with the logo of Fun Factory and the fact that it is a pulsator.
On the back of the box, we have mainly the staff of the Stronic Petite with explanations about it, then several pictograms that highlight the capabilities of the pulsator.
Once we access the contents by removing the sleeve, which by the way, contains inside, a game “Fact or Myth” about the clitoris, we have access to its contents. Inside, we have the pulsator, protected by a small net at the handle, with on the side, a magnetic USB charging cable (Click N’ Charge) in the shape of a ball, the new format that we discovered a little while ago. Then, we have a booklet that serves as a manual and explains the concept of the product and lots of little ideas. It’s a pity not to find a storage pouch as a bonus.
Stronic Petite physical details
It is quite obvious when seeing the Stronic Petite, that it is a pulsator! Indeed, it takes in its realization, elements that we discovered on the Stronic Surf! We find the handle, coppered, which contains three buttons that we know well, with a “+” button, a “-” button and a “Fun” button.
The handle has edges on the sides for a good grip. Then, we have the insertable part, with wavy reliefs, 3 in number. We also see that this insertable part is slightly curved in order to stimulate the G-spot but also the vaginal walls as a whole.
To tell you about the dimensions of this Stronic Petite, here is what I can tell you! Its total length is 17 cm (6.69″), for an insertable length of 11 cm (4.33″), with a handle of 6 cm (2.36″). And concerning the diameter, this one is 2,5 cm (0.98″) at the level of the head of the pulsator, then increases to 3,3 cm (1.29″) in the middle of the shaft with a maximum of 4 cm (1.57″). As Fun Factory indicates that it is the smallest pulsator of their range, I compared a little with the other models.
The Stronic G is 20.8 cm (8.18″) long for 14.6 cm (5.74″) insertable with a diameter from 3.6 to 4.2 cm (3.6″ to 1.65″). For the Surf model, it is 20.3 cm (7.99″) for 12 cm (4.72″) insertable with a diameter of 3.6 to 4.2 cm (3.6″ to 1.65″) also. While the Sundaze is 17.5 cm (6.88″) long for 11.5 cm (4.52″) insertable with a diameter of 3.5 to 3.7 cm (1.37″ to 1.45″)! So yes, the Stronic Petite is indeed the smallest pulsator!
There are several things to point out! The first is the weight of the Stronic Petite, which is only 216 grams! If I compare it to other pulsators recently released, the Stronic G is 315 grams, the Stronic Surf is 323 grams and the Sundaze is 335 grams! This makes it the lightest pulsator in its category! And the second is that it is available in two colors, Deep Sea Blue or Pastel Lilac. On our side, we received the “Deep Sea Blue” version.
Fun Factory Stronic Petite materials
Ah the silicone from Fun Factory, it’s a great story! It’s always the same thing with them! Of course, the silicone is of good quality, but it catches dust quite easily. However, it has a point! Fun Factory does not offer a “dust catching” silicone for nothing! The fact that the silicone catches dust brings a different sensation on the penetration, which grips more the vaginal walls in particular. Anyway, silicone is healthy for the body, containing no phthalates or latex.
And for the rest, especially the handle, it is as always ABS plastic! It is the two materials that are often found in the realization of sex toys. You don’t change a winning team!
Stronic Petite use
Well, with all that, I still haven’t answered the question at the beginning of the review! Why the Stronic Petite and what does it bring in the end? Well in fact, not much in reality. Its concept is to stimulate the vaginal walls and the clitoris internally, by a system of pulsation which does not require to hold it in the hand. Well this, the Stronic Surf already does it! So why this Stronic Petite? Simply to offer a compact pulsator, the smallest of the Fun Factory range, in order to offer more ease of use in particular. Are we talking about it? Of course we are! It is already what I did since the beginning of this review!
How to charge it?
As usual, the first thing to do when you receive your Stronic Petite is to charge it up! For that, you will have to charge it (between 4 and 6 hours) for a maximum autonomy of 3 hours! According to Fun Factory, it is an improvement of 30% of the charging time. I compared with the Sundaze, the last one before the Stronic Petite, and this one needed 5 hours of charging time for an autonomy of 1 to 3 hours. I don’t know if this is a 30% decrease, but it is already better than the Sundaze on this point.
How to handle the Stronic Petite?
The first thing to do is to check if the “Travel-Lock” mode is activated. To deactivate or reactivate it, simply press the “+” button and the “Fun” button at the same time until the Stronic Petite flashes and vibrates once. Then, to turn it on, simply press the “Fun” button for 0.5 seconds. Then by pressing the “+” button you will increase the intensity level or change the mode. You can also keep the “+” button pressed to navigate quickly and smoothly to the desired mode.
And if you press the “-” button in the same way, you will go back down in the modes and intensity levels. And finally, when you want to turn it off, just press the “Fun” button again for 0.5 seconds. You should also know that if you reach the last mode, pressing the “+” button again will not return to the first mode.
What can be done with it?
Well, I’m not going to draw you a picture, it’s a pulsator oriented for the vagina, this is where it will be! It can be used for anal, but as this model does not really have a brake, it is not the most recommended. You can hold it with one hand or even hold it between your thighs for a use without hands.
What modes are present?
On the Stronic Petite, we have 5 intensity levels for the constant mode and 3 vibration modes. For the three modes, we have “Gentle Push”, “Speed Up” and “Firework Sparkle”. This is for the default configuration. Because it is possible to use a backup of parameters. To do this, simply switch on your favorite mode, then keep the “Fun” button pressed for 2 seconds until you hear 2 beeps. When you switch off and restart the Stronic Petite, it will start directly on the saved mode. And if you want to change the saved mode, you will have to press the “Fun” button again for 2 seconds to hear the 2 beeps and continue to press the button until you hear 5 beeps.
Which lubricant to take with it ?
Since this is a pulsator made of silicone (at the same time, there are no pulsators that are not made of silicone that I know of), you will have to choose the right type of lubricant. Here, it is recommended to use a water-based lubricant. On this side, there are several models that we like, such as Sliquid H2O or Pjur Aqua.
How to clean it?
With a 100% waterproof sextoy, it becomes easy to clean it, because you can simply run it under warm water with a little mild soap to clean it. No risk that it meets a problem. You can also use a sextoy cleaner if you wish. Once rinsed, simply air dry it at room temperature.
Stronic Petite efficiency
Smaller version of the Stronic Surf, but with different modes, it’s a pulsator based on the Surf, but smaller, especially for beginners and those who don’t like to have a big shaft to insert in the pussy. I might as well say it, yes, that’s a bit of the Stronic Petite. But to tell you a little more about it, I asked Kitty to use it so that she could give me her feedback and share it with you. Here is our opinion on the Fun Factory Stronic Petite!
Ergonomics and handling
If the Surf was too big for you, the Stronic Petite will be there to change things! Indeed, the Stronic Petite has a diameter of 2.5 cm to 4 cm (0.98″ to 1.57″) maximum, which is not so small in reality, but the shaft will be easier to insert, because its diameter is more progressive than the Surf. A little water-based lubricant will be necessary, but not mandatory. At the level of insertion, Kitty found that it was a little less pleasant to insert than the Stronic Surf, because the Stronic Petite fills less and one feels a little less the waves on the sides of the sextoy at the level of the vaginal walls.
However, it moves more easily than the Surf. Despite its grippy texture, being smaller, it moves more easily back and forth with the pulsating magnet system. However, it is more difficult to use it without hands. Here, it’s more of a half-handed use. Kitty still had to use one of her hands to hold it or put it back in place.
Otherwise, the grip is good, the buttons are easily accessible and its simple to use. At the same time, they are the same buttons for a long time now, we are used to it. The grip is more like the Sundaze than the Surf.
Is stimulation cool?
Yes, but not as much as the Surf! In fact, it all depends on you! Kitty is a regular! She likes to feel full, that I tap at the bottom when I penetrate her, she is a lover of strong sensations! As much the Surf could pose problem for certain users with a concrete perineum able to expel the pulsator at the time of an orgasm or with a strong contraction, as much there, the Stronic Petite is closer to the Sundaze. Being smaller, this is not likely to happen, but we feel that it is more stunted, both in width and length, which makes it more suitable for beginners in our opinion.
The Stronic G remains unbeatable for G-spot stimulation. The Stronic Petite nevertheless makes it possible to achieve this, but with less efficiency than the version specially adapted for the G-spot. Even if the Stronic Surf fills less than the Stronic Petite, the latter makes it easier to poke around inside the vagina. One will be able in particular to stimulate the G spot by rubbing this one on the waves of the shaft and of course, to use the point to come to make play with your clitoris. Because even if it is an insertable pulsator, you can also have fun with it on other erogenous zones.
What about the different modes?
This is where things also change between the Stronic Surf and the Stronic Petite! Indeed, the Petite version is much less equipped than the Surf. On the previous model, we could find many more pulsating modes, but which were, if I may say so, of older generations. Here, the “Samba”, “Rumble”, “Roller Ball” or “Vienna Waltz” modes are not there anymore.
Here we have a constant mode with 5 levels of intensity! This is clearly the mode that will be used the most, but it still depends on the users. On the other hand, we have only three modes, namely “Gentle Push”, “Speed Up” and “Firework Sparkle”. These
Does it make noise?
Yes, of course, it’s still a sextoy that pulses with a system of powerful magnets. I won’t tell you that it is silent. However, just because it moves back and forth, it doesn’t make as much noise as our F-Machine Gigolo Pink. Despite this, its noise is not disgusting, it is not like Lora DiCarlo’s Osé 2 and its robotic noise when its stem turns.
Stronic Petite Final Thoughts
To conclude, we feel that this Fun Factory Stronic Petite has been thought for those who find the Surf too imposing. It is true that for Kitty, the Stronic Surf remains more interesting for the reasons mentioned, but it also depends on each user. Here, it is a smaller model, with pronounced waves on the shaft, less filling effect, but a more important mobility. It is a very good sextoy, but you will still have to choose between the Stronic Surf and the Stronic Petite. It’s up to you to choose the one that suits you best!
