We-vibe Tango - slim bullet by We-vibe - review by Philia

Love it! Until it’s out of juice.

Despite its relatively short charge time, I love the Tango. Lots of power in a small, quiet, cute, waterproof, easy-to-clean package. It has a place in my nightstand, but can often be found under my pillow, super-accessible, ‘cause you never know when you just might want a little something, y’know?
Quiet, strong, rechargeable, discreet, easy-care, waterproof, nice patterns, partner-friendly.
Loses charge, some might find it jumpy/slippery, discreet=easy to lose.

extremely useful review
There are several good factual overviews of this product, so I’m going to focus on the stuff most important to me about the Tango.

I did that thing that I suspect many women do, which is have a pretty cool collection of sex toys, then stop using them for a couple of years while kids are little and your sex life limps along, and then suddenly rediscover your sex drive, only to find that your sex toys are all scattered in different places from random and rare use, and most of them are in various states of decay or totally antiquated. The Tango is one of my first new-generation toys, and here’s why I decided to get it and how it has lived up to those priorities:

1. Silence. It’s great. Not absolutely silent, but the sound stays close by, if that makes sense. There are some settings where I think “do I actually hear that, or am I just feeling it because I’m right next to it?”

2. Power. I wanted strongish vibrations, like 4-4.5 vrooms. The Tango lives up to that. In fact, at the lowest/slowest setting, I almost find it TOO “thuddy.” Almost. The only downside is that given its size, it can jump around in your fingers a lot. Like if you have the flat “lipstick” side aimed at your clit and you’re trying not to hold it with a death grip, you can find it twisting in your fingers. And while I didn’t find it to lose power significantly with pressure, I do use it more lightly than most vibes. I think that maybe it’s that, when held with a lighter grip/lighter pressure, that same “jumping around” that’s a little annoyance for your hand and positioning also serves to create a nice friction/rubbing sensation.

3. Versatility. Although you can’t insert it (much) vaginally, and shouldn’t insert it anally, you can put it anywhere else that wants vibration. And it has a variety of ways you can position it (lengthwise, using the point, using the flat end, etc.) And it can sub in for the cheap bullet vibes that come with some toys and get inserted into them (e.g., some dildos, vibrating cock rings, etc.)

4. Ease of care. It’s plastic, compatible with virtually any lube (and so smooth that it doesn’t require lube). It’s waterproof, so you don’t have to be careful about washing it. And it doesn’t have dirt-friendly texture or seams. Honestly, when I’m just using it externally, without lube, I don’t feel like it’s getting particularly dirty in the first place, so I pretty much wipe it off and then clean more thoroughly after several uses. (Hopefully that’s not some kind of promotion of terrible hygiene or something.)

The Tango exceeded my expectations on all these fronts. Another pleasant surprise was that I like its patterns. (Ordinarily I experience patterns as extraneous “menu items” I have to scroll past in order to get to what I *really* want.) I’m still just playing around with them and using the steady vibrations when I’m ready for the Main Event, but they’re my favorite patterns on any vibe I’ve tried. I’m most surprised that I like the “cha cha” setting: “Buzz. Buzz. Buzz-buzz-buzz.” Who knew?

Something I don’t like: I’ve had the Tango run out of juice on me. The company says the charge lasts “up to” 2 hours, and I definitely lose track of time, but I’m pretty confident that I haven’t done so for 2 hours. More like 30 minutes, using the higher settings a lot, but I haven’t actually timed it. I’ll make sure to do that for my follow-up. Don't get me wrong--it doesn't *always* run out, or even half the time--but when it does it's a huge bummer, and naturally always occurs right as I'm heading for the home stretch.

Related to that, I’ve noticed that when the charge is getting low, if I turn it off for whatever reason, it won’t start up again; it just makes a little clicking sound rather than starting and then powering down as it runs out. I think of this as the toy’s polite way of saying “don’t bother; I’m about to run out.”

But, here’s how much I like the Tango: I’m seriously considering getting a second one for back-up charge. Or maybe the Salsa to mix it up a bit while keeping the general idea.
(this is really just a continuation of the above review)

The only other, very minor negative for me is that I’ve found the Tango easy to lose. I haven’t actually lost it, more like I’ve gotten up to go pee and then had to fling pillows and covers around to find it. This isn’t a true complaint, however, because it’s really just the flip side of how amazingly tiny and discreet it is. I've had a cell phone that was actually too small for me, and similarly, it's probably possible to hit a point with a vibrator where smaller isn't better and you actually want more heft and less lose-ability. For me, though, the Tango is still a great size.
Follow-up commentary
So it's been 16 months since I wrote the review and everything I said holds true still. Tango and Salsa are still my go-to vibes almost 100% of the time. They've spoiled me for anything else. I keep the charger that works for them plugged in all the time and just switch out which one I have plugged in waiting for next time. I have very, very occasionally used Siri, when I'm in the mood for something gentler.

If I had to pick one, I suppose I'd pick my Salsa: it feels a tiny bit more solid to me, has a tighter connection to the charger, and maybe it holds a charge a tiny bit longer (not 100% sure about that last one). My Salsa is also less sensitive to pressure; that is, it doesn't slow down at all if I press more. But based on the reviews I've seen of both, I think this may vary with the individual item you receive.

The other thing about the Tango that I'd highlight is that to the extent you're interested in the "lipstick" tip, for me personally it's totally irrelevant; the Tango rotates when I use it, so the orientation changes all the time. I think I'd have to have a death-grip on it for it to stay in place. But the orientation of the tip is totally overwhelmed by the vibrations, so all I notice is the vibrations, not whether it's the flat side or point side of the lipstick tip that's making contact.

    Fantastic review, thank you!

    The time it holds its charge seems kind of low.
  • Real or memorex
    I agree completely! These never hold a two hour charge even on the lowest setting. Still a great toy, though.
