California Exotic Xtreme Kit bullet vibratorI’ve been curious for a while now about the Xtreme Kit. I am unabashed in my creepy allegiance to the Xtreme Pack G-spot bullet, but I always wondered if the Xtreme Kit was just as good. No, the bullet shapes aren’t the same, and I figured the Xtreme Pack would still win in that area, but there are certain advantages to different-shaped bullets. Plus, I wanted another battery pack in case my G-spot bullet ever dared quit on me.

It seems fitting to compare the two toys side by side, so here goes — my first comparison review!

The Look

The battery packs are identical in design, but there are a couple discrepancies. The buttons on the Xtreme Kit feel more flimsy; they rattle a bit more, and they’re painted with silver paint, whereas the green buttons on the Xtreme Pack appear to be just green plastic. Also, weirdly, the inside of the battery chamber on the Xtreme Kit is not painted pink — it’s just the ugly cream color of the plastic before it became pink. I noticed this difference immediately, which just goes to show how addicted I am to the Xtreme Pack. The Xtreme Pack’s dark purple is consistent, even in the battery chamber. In fact, I wonder if the Xtreme Pack is actually made of plastic that has always been purple, whereas the Xtreme Kit was painted. This is, obviously, a small issue, but it does make the Xtreme Kit feel cheaper.

The bullets aren’t quite the same, either. The bullets of the Xtreme Kit are translucent, showing the innards of the bullets, while the Xtreme Pack’s bullet is opaque. All the bullets have the rubber cote texture to them, and each bullet has a seam that traps gunk if you don’t watch out. I was surprised to find that the Xtreme Kit’s bullets had little black o-rings where the cord connected to each bullet. “Why doesn’t my Xtreme Pack have that?!” I whined — that is one thing I’ve always wished it had, although after over a year of heavy use and sometimes careless cleaning, it has never burnt out on me.

The cords are the same length (2.5 feet). I know you were wondering. All of them can be unplugged from their battery packs. The Xtreme Kit, contrary to what you would think, only has one input, not two, so choose your bullet wisely.

The “Xtreme” Functions

The exact same. And that’s fine with me. There are five levels of constant vibration controlled by the buttons on the left side of the controller, and five vibration patterns controlled by the buttons on the right. The patterns can be slowed down or sped up with the left side “speed” buttons, hence the “35x vibration” that the packages promise. I enjoy the patterns, but please, don’t ask me to describe them. Too difficult.

All the functions are accompanied by exciting lights. The vibration patterns have light sequences that correspond with the vibrations. I’m a sucker for the lights.

Here’s the weird thing. It seems to me that the Xtreme Kit operates one speed below the Xtreme Pack. The lowest low on the Xtreme Kit is lower than the lowest low of the Xtreme Pack. I have no idea how this is possible, given the two comparable battery packs, but I feel fairly confident saying the Xtreme Kit has less power. Nonetheless, overall, the Xtreme Kit has more power than most bullets/eggs. Accordingly, it gets quite loud and buzzy on the higher speeds.

Usage

I am not a fan of the Xtreme Kit’s large, eggy bullet. It jumps around between my fingers when I try to use it, and it doesn’t provide anything close to the pinpoint stimulation the Xtreme Pack offers. The Xtreme Kit’s tiny bullet also tries to escape when I use it, but I can remedy that by grasping the cord right where it meets the bullet.

However, the tiny bullet can do several other tasks. It will fit in the hole of every vibrating Tantus dildo, and any other dildo with a small hole for a bullet. And it vibrates more intensely than those stupid watch battery bullets. If you do this, make sure to smear some lube inside the dildo or around the bullet before use, so it can be removed without yanking on the cord.

This bullet could also replace similarly-sized bullets in cock rings. I highly suggest this if your cock ring’s bullet takes watch batteries (the bane of my existence, if you couldn’t tell).

I’ve also found the tiny bullet feels quite nice tucked between my labia, against my clit, inside my underwear. It fits there very well, and doesn’t dislodge itself when I walk. I’m very much enjoying this technique.

In the End…

My mind hasn’t been changed. The Xtreme Pack is still the love of my life. However, there are some definite advantages to the Xtreme Kit in certain situations, so I definitely recommend it for its tiny bullet.

  • I love my xtreme kit simply because of those stupid watch battery eating bullets. Great review. 🙂

  • I have been debating getting one of these for a while. It’s REALLY good to know that this can be used in Tantus and other products, however. The bullet with my Goliath is a piece of crap. LOL

    Hmmm, will have to see about getting this one to use in the holes of my silicone dildos . . .

    I think I would like the curved tip of the Xtreme Pack more for clit stimulation, but love the ideas for other uses with the Xtreme Kit!

    I am pretty sure that I am going to buy one of these next paycheck. I want it for using in a bullet-compatible silicone dildo, so I am pleased to hear that it is suitable for that purpose. I also have an idea for inserting the bullet for easy retrieval: Put the bullet inside a condom and then shove it into the dildo leaving the open end of the condom hanging out of the dildo base. I am not sure if this will work, but it is worth a try. It seems a lot better to “lift” the bullet out by yanking on the condom than to risk yanking the wire out.

    Pity about the Valentine’s Day-esque color scheme. The Xtreme Pack certainly looks cooler, but the bullet is simply too large for the way I want to use it.

    Update: I received my Xtreme kit, and I tried the condom trick. First of all the bullet is AMAZING. I also tried the condom trick with my Happy Valley Delight silicone bullet-compatible dildo and it works AMAZING. The remaining length of the condom stays rolled up and sits neatly against the base of the toy, and I can shove the bullet all the way down inside the dildo without worrying that it will get stuck in there.
