I purchased a PowerBlow a few weeks ago (while it was backordered), and it recently arrived. I finally got a chance to try it out, below is my review…
- Kiiroo Keon
- Kiiroo PowerBlow
- New FeelStars (in this case – Tanya Tate)
- FeelConnect app (latest version) on iPhone
- Subscription to POVR.com
- Meta Quest 2
The instructions can be found at the link below, and a printed copy arrives with the device.
When the toy is first connected to the FeelConnect app, there is a calibration process. So, I suggest being ready to use the toy and to calibrate it. I skipped that step, and was not prompted to do it again. I will later try removing the device and re-adding it to see whether this prompts the calibration process again.
Pages 7-8 show how to disassemble the case and how to reassemble it afterward. Step 3 in the printed instructions is different in that the ring which was removed in step 1 is shown as being installed after the sleeve is inserted. I followed the printed instructions, and the result was a too-tight opening of the sleeve and a generally unsatisfactory experience. I will need to give it another try later with the sleeve inserted after the ring is installed.
On page 17, the instructions direct that in FeelConnect, the PowerBlow and Keon need to both be connected to the app, and the Keon should control the PowerBlow. I followed these instructions for my test.
I spent a while trying to figure out what to do with the filter that was included with the PowerBlow. Page 22 of the instructions show how it is to be installed. The filter that was loose in the box was a replacement.
The Results – What I Liked:
With the Keon controlling the PowerBlow, it definitely added to the sensory input during oral scenes. The PowerBlow was also activated during other parts of the scene, and it gave the sensation of kegel exercises. So, it was definitely fun. My hope is that as I get more familiar with the device, my experience will continue to improve.
The fact that the Keon controls the PowerBlow through the FeelConnect app means I can use the PowerBlow immediately and don’t need to necessarily wait for someone to write specific scripts for it.
I am happy with my purchase and expect my opinion will get even better as I get more familiar with the technology.
The Results – What I Didn’t Like As Much:
The PowerBlow is not quiet. I usually use noise-isolating headphones, it may be a good idea to use noise-cancelling headphones. (I’ll try this out and update the thread.)
Since I was using the FeelConnect app, I connected to POVR through the Meta Quest Browser and connected the browser to the FeelConnect app on my phone. I have two main complaints about the FeelConnect app. First, if I don’t remember to pause the video before exiting it, the script will continue to play – even though there is no video. (I do not have this issue with Haptics Connect and SLR.) Second, the POVR scripts sometimes feel like they are out-of-sync. (But then again, it is possible that the sync issue is some less-than-stellar scripts. I did not experience any sync issues this time around.)
The fact that the printed instructions showed the sleeve being inserted before the ring was re-installed made the experience very unpleasant. I’m statistically average for both length and girth. Simple insertion was difficult with the FeelStars in this configuration. Also, my new Tanya Tate sleeve now has an impression of the ring on its top. I am hoping the impression will fade over time.
Lubrication is a potential challenge. Ordinarily, I leave the cap off of the end of the FeelStars case, and when additional lube is needed mid-session, I simply add some from the top. However, with the PowerBlow installed, this is not an option. Add in that I am very concerned about over-lubricating and causing lubricant to get pulled into the PowerBlow, I was hesitant to use lubricant as liberally as I normally would. It will take some time to figure out the right amount of lubrication that won’t damage the PowerBlow.
I’m trying to figure out how to use the FeelConnect app with my local XBVR media server. I have purchased a lot of scripts for scenes that aren’t available on POVR or VirtualRealPorn, and I would like to use them with the Keon and PowerBlow.
I’m hoping this information is useful to some of you. If you have any questions, please let me know.
