LELO Mia 2 Review

Mia 2 has been the Queen of my sex toys since I first got her. Hell, it’s been that way since I got the original Mia, two years ago. Unfortunately the original broke so I had to get it replaced, even though I REALLY didn’t want to. I didn’t need it to be waterproof as I don’t use toys in the bath/shower and I certainly didn’t need it to be more powerful. But, alas, the original no longer existed so I was pretty much forced to upgrade. So was it worth it? I think so.

Lelo Mia 2 packaging

I know everyone says this, but I have to comment on LELO’s amazing packaging, it’s so sleek and elegant and makes for great storage – even though I literally only use the supplied satin bag.

The Mia 2 is just as easy to use, I didn’t even bother with any of the instructions because I was just too happy to finally have my favourite toy back after the longest week of my life. I can’t comment on whether this is in fact 100% more powerful than my previous Mia because I had to send mine off to get this one and I simply can’t remember.

Power source

Being USB rechargeable, Mia 2 is so easy to set up. Just plug it in and wait for the light to stop flashing and voila! It’s ready to go – just as you should be after waiting for 2 hours!

There are 2 silicone buttons on the side: a + and – which is pretty self explanatory. This also features a travel lock, which can be (de)activated by pressing and holding the two buttons at the same time. The buttons are the only place that attract fluff, but it’s nowhere near as bad as with some other toys I own. Because of the tiny amount of silicone on this toy, it is essential that only water-based lubricant is used – something like the Sliquid Blue Raspberry works for me. The vibrations start off extremely gentle & quiet and get surprisingly powerful towards the top end, considering the size of this toy. It’s actually amazing how powerful it is. Mia 2 fits in my hand so well, it’s almost as if she belongs there.

Lelo Mia 2 performance

This is definitely my favourite vibrator in the whole wide world. It’s small, discreet, powerful, quiet, lockable, beautiful and elegant… I could go on and on. The deep rose colour is so gorgeous and so shiny. I love the range of different speeds with this toy, starting off with a barely there buzz and ending with a seriously powerful yet surprisingly quiet vibration. I’ve never come across a quieter vibrator, if I have a blanket over my legs even I can’t hear this when its on the highest setting so there is no need to worry about anyone over-hearing any buzzing. Living with friends means I get so paranoid about noise and this is the one toy I reach for more than any other because of the fact that it’s so quiet. I love the travel lock feature too because it prevents the vibrator from accidentally turning on and I think it saves battery too. It’s also good for keeping in your handbag without worrying about accidental vibrations when out and about – I’m not sure if people actually do this, but I definitely do. Mia goes wherever I go.

The downside

I do find that it tends to rattle a little bit but never during the first use after a charge – it seems to do it every time after that until I charge it again when held at certain angles. I haven’t worked out which angles though, because I never use it for long enough for it to bother me. I haven’t ever timed how long a charge lasts but I’ve lost count of the amount of times I can use this before it needs another charge so I’d say quite a long time.

Unfortunately, I either have no luck with LELO toys or I simply wear them out because my Mia broke yet again. That’s twice now, which leads me to the conclusion that it isn’t a very reliable toy. However, I wouldn’t hesitate to keep replacing it again and again, because I simply love it so much. Find me another powerful vibrator that I can barely hear when I use it – I dare ya.The great thing is that all LELO toys come with a 1 year warranty and a 10 year guarantee which enables you to get a free replacement up to a year of purchase, and 50% off your next toy if it breaks within the period of 1-10 years!

Lelo Mia 2 review wrap up

I would honestly recommend this toy to everyone. Seriously. I think as long as you like clitoral stimulation you are bound to get on with at least a couple of the speeds. I think there are also patterns which I don’t even want to explore – I get so confused by them and they never work for me so I don’t see the point. Honestly, your (or your partner’s) clit will be best friends with Mia in no time.
