    I pulled my 12 volt power supply directly into a battery, sending power in the out wires.
    it tripped the breaker and now doesn't turn on... any suggestions?

    I would think you blew a fuse in the power supply. You have pics of what you did?

    I have not seen a vibrator with breakers. And most of them are 3v (2 batteries). Not unless you have one of those giant industrial-sized ones.

    Strip the wires and stick directly into a wall outlet whilst standing in a bucket or water and grasping a copper cold water pipe. That should reset it.

    What???? Any 12v supply will charge batteries. You popped the breaker inside the 12 supply or the A/C breaker?
