Revew: Mia 2 by Lelo

     The Mia 2 by Lelo is a USB rechargeable clitoral vibrator that comes in rose, pink, and black. I chose the rose when I purchased mine. I’ve had a few months to get to know the Mia 2, and I’ve finally come to a better understanding of how I feel about this vibrator.
     A little about the Mia 2; it’s plastic, hypo-allergenic, latex free, phthalates free, and it’s body safe. Soap and water work best for me, but you can also use toys wipes or toy cleaner to clean it. It’s not safe for anal insertion since there’s no flared base to prevent it from becoming lost!
     The Mia 2 is supposedly 100% stronger than the original Mia from Lelo, but I haven’t tried the original so I can’t comment on that. It is, however, completely waterproof. I know some people had issues with the cap that protects the USB plug popping off with the original version, so they felt that it wasn’t safe to bring near water. The new cap has a twist-locking mechanism that prevents it from popping off randomly. I haven’t had any issues in that regard.Functions: You press the + button to turn it on. Holding the + down for a few seconds brings it to its strongest vibration setting. Once you get to the highest setting, you can hit the + button again to enter the vibration patterns, which are random escalations, waves, pulses, and the last setting is a completely random pattern. You can’t change the intensities of the patterns with this vibe like you can with the Mona 2.

One thing I learned is it has a quick shutoff option. If you hit both the + and – button at the same time, the toy quickly shuts off without a pause. It’s not intuitive so it won’t remember which setting you left off on when you turn it on again. It’s very easy to hit the + and – buttons simultaneously. I can easily do it with just my thumb during use.

There’s also a travel lock option when you press and hold + and -. The light on the front of the control panel with turn on as you press the buttons, and it’ll turn off once the travel lock is activated. When it’s locked the light will not turn on if you press either of the buttons. To unlock it you simply hold the + and – buttons again for a few seconds.

Strength: In terms of vibrations, it’s not that great. There’s a range of vibration strengths ranging from a 1 vroom to a low 3 out of 5 vrooms. The light weight of the Mia 2 makes the vibrations somewhat weak. If it were a heavier vibrator, they would feel more intense. I think it could be a good fit for those who don’t require a lot of oomph from clit vibes, but it’s somewhat boring for me.


As always, the Mia 2 comes in Lelo’s beautiful packaging, complete with a gorgeous black keepsake box that would work great for longterm storage, and a black satin pouch that holds the vibrator nicely. It also comes with a sample pack of Lelo’s water based lube, and a product authentication card that’s useful if you have to use their 1 year warranty. If anything goes wrong with the toy, just contact Lelo and they’ll be sure to help you.

     What I love about the Mia 2: it’s great for partner play. My partner is a little intimidated with my Salsa. She can’t get a good grip on the Salsa when she wants to use a vibe on me. With the Mia 2, there’s a neat triangular point on the cap which fits nicely between the forefinger and thumb. Neither of us have experienced any hand numbness with the Mia 2 either.     It’s also quick to charge. You can fit the USB plug into any USB charging port or computer, and it takes only an hour and a half to fully charge mine. It’s also quick to die too. When I use it, I need it on the highest setting to get any pleasure from it. Two reasonably long sessions and it’s dead.

Pros:

  • USB Rechargeable
  • Waterproof

Cons:

  • Weak
  • Overpriced and Overrated

Overall Rating: 2/5
Strength: 3/5
Volume: 1.5/5

It’s an overrated vibrator. Not any stronger than those old fashioned wand vibrators that require 1 AA battery. It’s definitely not worth the price. The only awesome factor to this vibe is the USB charger. I like being able to plug it into USB charging adapters and having it pass as a gig stick. No one suspects what it is. I love the other Lelo products I’ve tried, but this one was a bust for me.
