Works... but has multiple minor flaws
on July 9, 2014
I expected more from Toto
On the positive side, it does the job (barely), which is why I gave it 3 stars
This product has a large number of minor faults which should have been eliminated through the years...
1) It looks and feels flimsy (reminds me of Japanese toys built 30 years ago), does not look like a $100 product
2) The pressure is really low. Understandable since it is powered by a single AA battery. But given the price of the product it should have have a more powerful, integrated, rechargeable battery with a charging stand
3) The amount of water stored is not enough... I would like to refill it, which makes it unsuitable for a public toilet (without a basin attached)
4) It is too bulky to carry in one's pocket. On the other hand, when filled with water it is pretty large (think of going to a public toilet carrying this in one's hand, filling it in the basin, carrying this bulky object to one of the stalls, guaranteed to collect many stares). This is essentially a woman's product to be carried in a handbag to a toilet.
5) The carrying strap is terribly designed. It tends to drop into the water stream and get wet. (I removed the strap)
6) When you press the button (and water starts spraying), the lock tends to disengage and the device starts collapsing (making the button inaccessible... and this stops operation)
7) All instructions on the device are in Japanese. (On the flip side, it is not complicated to figure out)
In Conclusion: I expected far better engineering and design. However it gets the job done... barely
