Mia, Mia, Mia...

I love Mia, I really do, but I think that's because of her discretion and the fact that I don't have to buy batteries for her. If I base her strictly on the vibrations that she offers I think she'd be a three, but her other features are a five, I round that out to a four and I still think she's an absolutely good buy!

extremely useful review
For me Mia is both a hit and a miss. Whether you love Mia is going to depend on what you need and what you're looking for in a vibrator. The vibrations that Mia offers are pretty mediocre. They're just average and are kind of a miss between deep and buzzy, but more on the buzzy side. She also only has multiple speeds of steady vibration and then three pulsation patterns. The pulsations are pretty strong but there's nothing unusual about them and there's no escalations, which are my favorite. So, if I was just looking at Mia for her vibrations there are much better toys out there. But, when I chose Mia I was looking for much more than just vibrations.

First off I wanted discretion. I wanted something that could be put in my desk drawer or in my purse. Both of these my kids go into from time to time. I have enough trouble guarding them from certain drawers in my bedroom, I didn't want to worry about them going in my desk drawer or purse too. The Mia is so completely innocent looking that she is perfect for discretion. When she is charging just connected to my laptop's USB port she looks just like a flash drive. When her cap is on she looks almost like a lipstick, or again a flash drive. What makes her even more discreet is that she has a travel lock function. By pressing her and - buttons at the same time for a few seconds you can lock Mia so that she does not accidentally turn on. This way if someone happens upon her and starts pressing buttons nothing will happen. It also prevents her from accidentally turning on in my purse.

Another way that Mia is discreet is her sound. She's pretty darn quiet and she won't be heard through a closed door. She might be heard through covers, but really that depends on how thick the covers are and how close another person is to you. Her sound can easily be covered up by a television or radio at normal volume.

I also wanted something chargeable. I am so tired of batteries running low and then having to either find new batteries or try another toy. I'm also buying so many batteries that it can't possibly be good for the environment! So, not only is Mia rechargeable, but she's also USB rechargeable, which is absolutely awesome. I don't even have to look for her cord, I can just plug her directly into my laptop's USB port. You can use the included USB extension cord if you prefer. Mia charges pretty quickly, and she has a light that blinks while she's charging. You don't want to leave her charging for over 24 hours though, it is possible to overcharge Mia.

Mia is also super easy to clean, which is another plus. Mia is primarily made of plastic, with some silicone surrounding her USB port and silicone buttons. You can just wipe her down with some wipes or spritz her with some toy cleaner and wipe her down. Just be careful not to get her too wet, she's not waterproof. The instructions let you know that if you do happen to get water in the USB part you should just blow lightly until the water is removed.

Mia is also beautifully packaged and would make a great gift. She also comes with a white silky pouch to store her in. This keeps her nice and clean between uses and also just makes her even more discreet. Also, Lelo has an awesome warranty, so can't beat that!

So, when you put together her recharging and her discretion Mia is a total must have. She's also reasonably priced for a rechargeable vibrator. And really the vibrations aren't bad vibrations, I do consider her to be a powerful vibrator. She's just not the strongest vibe out there and her patterns are kind of ho-hum.
Experience
Using Mia for the most part I really like her. She's the perfect size for some great clitoral stimulation or some shallow (very shallow) vaginal stimulation. There are a few issues I've come across while using her though. First and foremost is the fact that I can't seem to find a way to hold her without accidentally hitting the control buttons and switching the level. This is especially frustrating when I am almost to climax and then I accidentally turn her off! Grrr. I've since learned to be more careful and haven't had her completely turn off, but I have to be aware of what I am doing while using her, which sometimes is a bummer. Also her cap has a tendency to come off. Usually I can feel it before it fully falls off, but a few times I've gotten apparently a bit to into it (told you her vibrations aren't bad!) and it has completely popped off. When that happens and I have to stop to find the cap it's a bit of a distraction.

When it comes down to it though Mia isn't always able to get me off easily. Sometimes her vibrations aren't strong or deep enough for me and it takes me a while or I need to help myself along by reading some erotica or watching something sexy. She is always great for foreplay though, and she can be used between partners during sex as long as you're careful not to press the buttons or let the cap pop off.

Mia's rounded tip also makes an excellent pinpoint massager. She's small enough to fit in your hand as you rub her along your partner's body and send shivers down their body when her vibrations touch their sensitive spots. She offers excellent nipple stimulation and is small enough to offer some nice perineum stimulation for both guys and gals.
Follow-up commentary
I love Mia just as much now, if not more! The more I use Mia the more I like her. The vibrations aren't as high as some toys that I have and love, but the way that they are pinpointed due to the shape make up for that. Mia's also so unbelievably easy to take care of! Wiping Mia down with some toy cleaner or some soap and water take no time at all, and it's so easy to keep her charged via USB. There's no looking around for where I left the power cord; I just pop off the cap and let her charge for a bit while I'm using the computer. She also has quite a long life between charges, I find I can get probably 5 or so uses before needing to recharge. She has such a nice price too, if you're looking for a nice rechargeable toy under $50.00, Mia is definitely the way to go!
