Lovehoney very kindly sent me this new improved Tango to test and I’m so excited. The We-Vibe Tango is an extremely powerful rechargeable and fully waterproof bullet vibrator. It is my favorite bullet of all time; tragically due to the iffy charging on the original Tango it didn’t get as much use; messing around with the original charging facility became too much of a pain and it was delegated to the back of the drawer with occasional use now and then.
If you haven’t used or owned the previous Tango than I would like to apologise because I will be comparing the two throughout this review, however I will also be pointing out the fantastic points and my opinions that the new and improved Tango has to offer.
The packaging and what’s in the box
Firstly the packaging, it comes in a cardboard box which looks very nice, it has a picture of the item on the front of the box and a brief description of the item. Upon opening the box you’re greeted with a plain white foam inlay to protect your newly purchased bullet vibe and a cardboard cover with the name ‘Tango’ displayed on it. Underneath this inlay you have your USB charging cable, a white protective bag and your We-Vibe instruction manual. If your newly purchased bullet is blinking at you from the box do not be alarmed, this is one of the new features to show that it needs to be charged.
To charge your bullet simply attach the USB cable to the magnetic charging cap then place the charging cap at the bottom of your Tango. All that is left for you to do is to plug your USB cable into the PC and leave it to charge initially for 90 minutes. Whilst the item is on charge the charging cap light will be lit up and once your bullet has fully charged the light on the cap will turn off. Keep in mind that the light will also turn off if it loses connection; when the light goes off I usually take it off and put it back on again just to ensure the connection wasn’t lost and it is indeed fully charged.
I love this new charging facility if you owned the previous version you will know of the frustrations that were caused charging up your original model. I am happy to see that this doesn’t seem to be the case for the newer model, the magnetic base doesn’t constantly disconnect and you don’t have to continually re-angle it to get it to keep charging. The magnets are also stronger and more defined than the previous model YAY.
The newer model is also USB charging and so it doesn’t come with a plug in charger like the previous one, this for me is great because I hate wall charging; however if you do prefer wall charging you will have to purchase a USB to wall charging adapter which you can usually pick up for a couple of pounds.
Another fantastic addition to the newer improved Tango is the ‘charge me’ light, this will blink when it’s getting to low battery and needs a charge. Fantastic! Yet it can be highly irritating, it will constantly blink until you feed it that electrical charge that it so desires. If you leave it on your night stand that little light will blink all night like a little beacon which has both pros and cons to it. Obviously the pros are that we now know when our Tango needs to rejuvenate and it won’t just conk out on us mid orgasm, and well the cons if you don’t want to get up and you leave it on your side table it will continue to blink telling you to get up and charge it; but either way I love this new addition, I hated the fact that I could be using my bullet and then all of a sudden NOTHING my soul was killed on several occasions due to an unexpected dead Tango.
How it looks
The new vibe looks much like the old one it’s slender and looks a lot like lipstick. The overall appearance hasn’t changed much from the original model. The only difference is the new model is 5 millimeters longer than the previous model in length and slightly smaller width ways. The tip on the newer one is also more defined than the more curved tip on the older model. The difference in the tip doesn’t much change the overall sensations but for those of you who like pinpointed stimulation you will really be able to notice the subtle change. There hasn’t been any change to the material used to make this item; it is still made with ABS thermoplastic which in theory should enable you to use any type of lube, however I would really avoid using silicone lube since the button to switch it on is made out of silicone. The instructions also advise against using silicone lube.
Turning it on
Much like the older version you switch it on by the button at the bottom of the device (Where your magnetic charger goes) you simply press the button in and then let go. It has 8 different settings the first four being continuous vibe getting stronger in vibrations as you go through then 5 through 8 are different pattern vibrations. To turn it off you simply hold the button in for two seconds.
How it feels
The most important part of the review how it actually feels, well I have to say it feels absolutely amazing. I am a power whore when it comes to vibrations I want it as powerful as possible. Well, I need it as powerful as possible if I’m going to get anything resembling the orgasms I’ve become to know and love and this item doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.
We-Vibe have made various different changes to this bullet and I’m happy to see that they haven’t compromised on its initial winning design or the power we’ve become accustomed to with a Tango bullet vibrator they’ve just enhanced what was already brilliant about it and made it better! It is just as powerful as it has always been, the vibrations feel the same strength yet it feels so much better than the original I believe that is because of the more pinpointed tip
If you don’t like power and prefer your vibrations to be a little less intense then this sadly isn’t the bullet for you even on the lowest setting it is still incredibly powerful.
For those of you who do like power then this is an essential item for your toy box. It is sleek, stylish, powerful, rechargeable and fully submersible in water. There is nothing I don’t like about it; I wasn’t able to find anything about it that I would consider a fault, just vast improvements from the previous model making it that much better than it originally was.
If you would like to purchase the We-Vibe Tango you can do so from Lovehoney.
