Find precise dimensions on each product page for the varying widths associated with each sex toy model.
Does The Thruster Vibrate?
Yes! Especially at the tip. The mechanical drive for creating the thrusting motion oscillates inside to generate this vibration. It is not controlled separately.
What is The Thruster Made Of?
The Thruster is made from body-safe platinum cure silicone, a medical-grade material. That makes it compatible with hybrid and water-based lubricants.
What is Included With The Thruster?
The Thruster comes with a storage box and magnetic charger with a 6-foot cord that will plug into a standard 110v outlet.
USE AND MAINTENANCE OF THE THRUSTER
How Do I Change Speeds?
For the original thrusters, push the button at the end of the base to switch between 10 adjustable speeds up to 140 strokes per minute. The color-changing lighted keypad will indicate the current speed. After a while, you’ll know what color is your favorite for thoughtless effort while in play.
Thruster Minis have suction cups on the base, so their speed controls are on the side.
How Do I Close it to The Storage Position or Extended for Cleaning?
When you press the power button, the toy will automatically shut off after 3 seconds. If you want to stop the Thruster in a specific position, either all the way open for cleaning or all the way closed to tuck away, you can push the power button a second time within those 3 seconds to stop it wherever you like. Practice at low speed first to get the feel.
How Long Does The Thruster Last Between Charges?
From a full charge, original Velvet Thrusters will last for up to 8 hours. Thruster Minis have a smaller battery that will last up to two hours. Their charge will be spent faster when used at higher speeds, as well as when flexed and bent.
Can I take The Thruster With me Into Water?
Unfortunately, no. While The Thruster is water-resistant for cleaning, it is not safe to completely submerge.
How Should I Clean The Thruster?
Start by using the controls to bring The Thruster to a stop while it is fully extended.
The Thruster is easy to wash with soap or sex toy cleaning fluid. Wash the silicone toy end with warm water and soap, do not get water directly in the vent holes. Those 2 vents eject air from being trapped while the toy is in motion. We recommend cleaning your Thruster every time you use it.
How Should I Store The Thruster?
Store your Velvet Thruster in a dry and secure place. Halt the thrusting motion of The Thruster while it is retracted for the most compact and easy storage.
