Lovense Ambi Review:
My Experience Using It & Overall Rating
Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: September 6th, 2019
Bullet vibrators occupy a very special place in my heart, as they have become incredibly powerful in recent years in both battery life and intensity.
The small stature of bullet vibrators is one of their strong suits, but also come with their drawbacks. The biggest of which is that they simply don't have much room to hold on to. This can cause an issue if the toy is particularly powerful or effective, I can't count how many times I've dropped a bullet vibrator while in using it.
Not to mention that because of their smaller sizes, they tend to come in a limited amount of shapes. Most offer both generalized vibrations as well as more pinpoint styles of stimulation.
This is the main reason why the Ambi bullet vibrator stood out to me, it has a handle that makes for easy gripping. The main housing of the vibrator is wide with only a little nubby at the very end, but I find that pinpoint clitoral stimulation is easily accomplished by using one end of the handle.
It fits rather snugly, actually.
I purchased the Ambi from the official Lovense store for around $90 last summer, since it was unlike any other vibrator in my collection, nor did it resemble any vibrator I'd ever seen before.
When I first learned about the toy and saw how it functioned, I was very intrigued.
I was pleasantly surprised after using it, as it's unlike any other vibrator in my collection. It really is a great little toy. Let's get to the review, shall we?
The following 1 and a half minute video should explain why the Lovense Ambi piqued my interest:
Specs & Design
The outer layer of the Ambi is made from 100% medical grade and body safe silicone. Silicone toys are considered functionally non-porous as the pores that they do have aren't suitable for the growth of bacteria colonies. For reasons for ease of cleaning, pleasurable sensations, as well as relatively low cost, silicone toys are quickly becoming some of the most common toys out there.
Let's go over the proper dimensions of the Ambi, shall we? Shaped similarly to a hammer, the total length of the toy is 3.39 inches, with 2.40 inches of that being entirely insertable. The diameter of the insertable end is 1.03 inches, or about the diameter of the cap on a soda bottle. Depending on the positions used, your mileage may vary with what works best for you.
While the toy is rechargeable, you'll notice upon inspection of the toy that there isn't a port to plug in a charging cable, so how does it get the job done? The toy makes use of a magnetic charger at the very end of the toy, there's two metal connectors at the business end of the toy that can be hooked up the magnetic charger. Unfortunately it is somewhat fussy as far as actually plugging it in goes, and you should make sure the light comes on saying that it is really connected and charging lest you get a bad surprise next time you want some self-care.
When it comes down to the battery, somewhere a little over an hour of charge time gets you between an hour and a half to two hours of continuous use. They brag about a long standby time, but I don't recommend letting your toy sit around unused for long periods of time if you want the battery to last as long as possible.
Vibration modes galore is a noteworthy feature of the Ambi, with three default patterns that are the simple low-medium-high, as well as the ability to make 10 customized vibration patterns if you prefer more ooh's than ah's or any combination of two, really.
If you download the Lovense remote app to your phone, you can also make use of all of the extra features Lovense has made available for their customers. The vibration settings can be personally tailored within very specific ranges or you can find some patterns made by others out there who have uploaded them to the Lovense remote app to be used by others.
Once your toy is synced up, it is also possible to hand off control of the toy to anyone else using the app on a phone or computer and allow them to personally control your toy. I've used it many times to allow my husband to tantalize my G-spot even though he's halfway across the country.
Why Is It Called The "Ambi"?
All of Lovense's toys tend to have some sort of meaning behind them, it's mostly up to us, the customer, to decipher exactly what that meaning is. For the Lovense Ambi I can only assume they're referring to ambidextrous, since the toy is made to have an easy to use hand feel and an actual handle. The added handle makes it easier to use the vibrator in a myriad of different positions no matter which hand you have to use, so: Ambi.
Upon un-boxing the toy I was kind of worried about the two charging ports at the end of the device, but they're sufficiently recessed into the silicone housing that there's essentially no chance of feeling cold metal inside of you. This made it slightly harder to plug in the charger properly, but I support the design choice of comfort in use over a little fidgeting to get it to charge properly.
How Does It Work?
While one portion of the toy is clearly more designed to be the handle than the other, I really like using the back end of the handle as a clitoral vibrator. It fits nicely into my body shape but may not be ideal for all women. The multiple vibrating edges of the device should mean that there's some part that can service your personal anatomy though, so experimenting is key to getting the most out of the Ambi, although this can be said about most toys. The pointier edge is perfect for pinpoint stimulation while the opposing edge is good for entire clitoral domination. To this effect, it's a very versatile bullet vibrator.
Where the Ambi vibrator stands out is the sheer power of the vibrations. Because the toy is smaller than the average vibrator, I find myself making use of the higher power settings very frequently. The three default vibration levels can also be customized with the app, so there's no need to keep them at the default low-medium-high range and instead you can have your three favorite kinds of vibrations on quick rotation as opposed to two settings you seldom use and one you usually use, nice!
It's small enough to be used when I'm having sex with my husband, which is a big bonus for me. I find if you turn the handle sideways it really helps the toy stay in place during sex. It's in fact one of the very few smaller vibrators I use that can stay relatively in place during doggystyle, as gravity tends to work against these kinds of toys.
The Ambi's charging cable has a platform on one end that uses a magnetic charger that connects to a port at the bottom of the "handle" of the toy (if you picture it like a hammer) and functions very nicely after a night of getting the full experience the Ambi can offer. It charges very quick despite the need to power the wide range of vibration levels, so I'm pleasantly surprised by the charging process for the Lovense Ambi.
My Thoughts After Using It
Me and Don are very partial to Lovense toys not only because of their commitment to making all of their toys compatible for long-distance sex, but because they tend to cover all of the bases in their toys that the competitors do not.
When it comes to making better mouse traps, Lovense has it to a T.
The Ambi improves on the bullet vibe design by adding the handle to the toy and by making it infinitely customizable. Pinpoint stimulation of the clitoris as well as labia + vaginal stimulation can all be had at the same time if the toy is positioned correctly. This is one toy I keep in my bedside drawer for quick access. I've even managed to hit my G-spot on more than one occasion. Yet another pro the Ambi gets to add to its long list of worthwhile features.
Where Should You To Buy It?
If you're interested in purchasing the Lovense Ambi, the only place I can personally recommend you buy it is at the official Lovense website.
They offer the lowest price available online, and when you purchase through them, you can guarantee you're going to receive a genuine product. Their customer support is also easy to get in contact with and they respond very quickly, that's enough for them to retain me.
Those looking for the app can find it on the App Store on iOS or the Google Play store on Android.
Since many online retailers have been selling fake Lovense products, due to the surge in popularity of the brand, it's important you only buy from reputable sellers.
If you're in the market for a new vibrator and you want something unique, the Ambi is definitely a toy I'd recommend. Whether you're a bit of a sex toy connoisseur like myself, or you're just getting started with vibrators and things of that nature, the Lovense Ambi will make a great addition to your sex toy collection (no matter how big or small it may be). Ambidextrous people are quite versatile, and since this toy can hit the g-spot, clitoris, and even do a little work as far as raw penetration goes, I'd like to share that this toy is quite versatile in its own right.
I hope you found my Lovense Ambi review to be helpful, if you have any other questions about this toy or how well it works with the app please feel free to leave a comment below and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can!
