I was lured by the cute look of the Ambi, but meanwhile, I also read a few negative reviews about this toy. So, I was skeptical about how well this toy can perform. I got the toy during Valentine’s day sale and I don’t regret buying it. I am actually surprised why this toy receives so many negative reviews because the vibration from Ambi is really divine and the app control is quite smooth, to my opinion. The only thing that really disturbs me is its weak magnetic charger.
I will talk about every aspect about Ambi in this review, hoping it can give you a thorough picture of this little hammer :).

WHAT IS AMBI by Lovense?
Ambi is a toy for long-distance play and it’s a pink bullet vibrator that kinda looks like a small hammer. The uniquely shaped vibrator was designed with a woman’s body in mind, and it promises to hit all the right spots with varying degrees of pleasure rhythms.
Ambi is a product of Lovense, a Hong Kong-based teledildonics company that manufactures smart sex toys. All their sex toys have the ability to work over any distance, as long as you have a stable internet connection. Besides, there are versatile ways to control this toy which makes it ideal for either solo or couple play.
Lovense touts Ambi as the most versatile bullet vibrator ever, but that is up to you to decide after you finish reading this review.
KEY FEATURES OF AMBI
Here are some of the features that make Lovense Ambi stand out:
1. Design and Look
The unique design of the Lovense Ambi allows it to have a lot more versatility than other similar toys in the market. For instance, its hammer-shaped head makes it easier for you to pinpoint and focus stimulation where you want it.
You can use either the pinpoint or broad side of the head to stimulate your clitoris or insert it for some internal stimulation. The head is 2.29 inches (5.8 cm) long and 1.08 inches (2.7 cm) wide while the handle is 2.40 inches (6 cm) long and 1.03 inches (2.6 cm) wide. At only 60g (2.1 ounces), this makes it a lot smaller, lighter and more portable than many other conventional toys.
Besides, Ambi has smooth, elegant curves throughout its surface, which make it a lot easier and more comfortable to handle and manoeuvre around with. Plus, the entire surface is smooth and entirely made of medical-grade silicone, which is a body-safe material, unlike rubber or latex.
2. Powerful Vibration
When it comes to vibrators, the top thing I care about is the vibration. Is it strong or weak? rumbly or buzz? I was really delighted to find out that Ambi falls in the strong and rumbly category. The vibration is really quite top, considering its small size. When using it to stimulate the clitoris, the vibration can actually travel through the surface and reach deep inside, which guarantees an almighty orgasm and your clit won’t feel sore after the stimulation.
Despite that Lovense claimed that Ambi is also designed for internal stimulation, I personally don’t agree with that. The vibration is indeed amazing, but the hammer is too small to vibrate the entire vaginal walls, not mention reaching the G-spot.
3. Versatile Ways of Play Thanks to the APP
There are many built-in features that make the Ambi the perfect tool for the job. First, its Bluetooth compatibility allows you to control most of its functions with your phone. It is also highly programmable, allowing you to cycle through up to 10 vibration patterns and 3 vibration levels.
The Lovense Ambi works with the accompanying Lovense app, which truly takes things to another level. Besides allowing you and your partner some long-distance play, the app also makes the Ambi to be sound activated, which means that its vibrations will respond to whatever music you play, your parter’s voice record or the sound of your moans.
The app also allows you to sync it to your favorite tracks, or preprogram it with personalized vibration patterns. With these being said, Yes! there are unlimited ways to play with this toy! 🙂
4. Fast USB Charging (but weak magnetic connection)
The Ambi is USB rechargeable. The power supply is via an internal rechargeable battery, and a USB cable is provided for this purpose.
The Lovense Ambi takes only 60 minutes to get a full charge. It lasts for up to 2 hours on a single charge. What this means is that unlike other smart sex toys, it will never force you to take excruciatingly long pauses during your play time as you wait for it to charge. It will be up and ready to go again within just an hour, giving you toe-curling pleasure for two hours straight with each round.
To my opinion, the magnetic charger is really weak and a slight touch can make it disconnect. This is what I hate the most about this toy. If I don’t disturb the Ambi when it’s being charged, then 60 mins are enough for the toy to regain all the battery. However, I think the battery can only last for a bit more than 1 hour.
Ambi is fully submersible – you can use it in showers, baths, hot tubs without worrying that it will get damaged by water. Water play is fun because it can really intensify the sensation.
Being waterproof also makes it far easier to clean and more hygienic. It can be cleaned thoroughly after each use with no worry of water damage.
6. Low Noise Level
Ambi is very quiet and discreet, so you do not have to worry about being heard through walls unless you scream out in pleasure.
HOW TO USE LOVENSE AMBI?
This versatile sex toy can be used in a number of ways, depending on your preferences and the results you want to achieve.
The female body is truly wonderful, so there are many ways you can get creative with the Ambi during your playtime. For example, if you would like pinpoint stimulation, use the head of the toy around your labia and your clitoral hood. However, if you prefer to stimulate the entire vulva, use the broad side of Ambi for some extra contact.
For super pinpoint stimulation, you could fit the small tip on the hammer-shaped head under the clitoral hood.
There are also many ways you can incorporate Lovense Ambi in your sex life. Experiment using it during foreplay, solo play or in multiple positions with your partner.
HOW TO USE THE LOVENSE REMOTE APP?
So, how to sync your Ambi with the Lovense remote app? After downloading the Lovense Remote app, the synchronization process is a piece of cake if you follow these steps:
1. Enable your Bluetooth, and click on the + in the toys section.
2. After a quick search, your app should be able to locate the toy.
3. Click on “done” to complete this simple process.
You will only have to go through this paring process once, and the next time you open your app, you will find that Lovense Ambi is on your “My Toys” list.

After adding your toy to the app, it’s the fun part! Firstly, the App allows you to program three personalized vibrations levels, as well as up to 10 customized vibration patterns.

PACKAGING & WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The package arrived discreetly. Upon opening the package, you are presented with the Ambi box – the box is firm and you can find all the main information on the box. Inside the box, you will find three things:
- Ambi Bluetooth Vibrator, with a 1-year warranty

- User Guide
CLEAN AND CARE
Ambi is fully waterproof, which makes it super easy to be taken care of. After each use, you can simply wash it with warm soapy water and then store it in a dry and clean bag.
If you use lubricant while using this bullet vibrator, I recommend only use a water-based lubricant. Other types of lubricants may damage the toy as it’s made from silicone.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH AMBI
My boyfriend is usually away on business a lot. A girl has needs, so I often turn to my toys. The first time I tried the Ambi, it was almost scary how good it felt. I mean, the designers of this thing thought about everything; from your position as you use it, to how it makes contact with you and even how it should behave when you move around a little on the bed with it.
I have found that the best position to use it in is while lying down with your hands controlling it between your legs. When in manual mode, I like to use both hands, combining my finger skills with the vibrations of the Ambi. However, I can still control it on the app with one hand while positioning it with the other hand if I have to.
The orgasms I got from the Ambi were intense, in quick succession, deep, and like I said, almost scary. In a beautiful way. They felt so good, I had my entire body trembling and my eyes rolling back. I think I even inadvertently let out a scream or two, even though I am usually the silent type. All in all, I found a new best friend in the Lovense Ambi.
When playing with my boyfriend, we discovered that it works really well when we paired it with Hush, which is another revolutionary sex toy from Lovense. It allowed us to control everything about the toys via the app, and we took things a notch higher by controlling each other’s toys. It has greatly enhanced the whole long distance sex experience.
Whenever he gets back, we experiment with the Ambi even further. He has used it on me during foreplay and in a variety of positions (it truly is versatile!), and the different sensations I experienced from the rumbling vibrations of Ambi were simply toe-curling. My boyfriend also thoroughly enjoyed seeing me attempt to suppress my pleasure as he remotely controlling the Ambi during a dinner date once.
So, what do I love about the Ambi? Well, first, the orgasms it gives you are quick, intense and successive, and I have absolutely no complaints about that. It is also comfortable to hold while stimulating the clitoris, and it is extremely discreet and quiet. I also love the fact that you can add personalized patterns, which gives you the chance to experiment with it. The Ambi is also waterproof, which means you can use it in the shower and in the bathtub during solo plays without damaging it. With its quick charging times and its great battery life, along with its ability to sync with other sex toys, it is truly a wonderful little thing that packs quite a punch.
However, among the few downsides that I noticed with it includes the fact that it has a rather troublesome charger. When I used it to charge the Ambi, the indicator light failed to switch on. Furthermore, the charger was very sensitive, and I spent quite some time trying to figure out the correct positioning. The video-call function of the app may also experience a few delays once in a while. Other than that, you can’t help but love the Ambi.
