We-Vibe Tango changed my life, let me tell you how it can change yours
We-Vibe reviews boast the We-Vibe Tango as being the most powerful vibrator on the market – if you’re looking for something small. That being said, I was sorely disappointed with the We-Vibe Jive. So I was skeptical. I love my Magic Wand, but it’s awkward or impossible in 99% of positions, so it’s generally just my solo play toy. And forget a different bullet vibe, they pack less punch than one finger on my clit going slowly would do. Mind you, if you don’t require a huge amount of stimulation, there are some cheap bullet vibrators that may do the trick.
A bit about me: it is nearly god damn impossible for me to get off. Penetration will never do it, G-spot stimulation or not. I need clit stimulation, and oh boy, I need it intensely. To be honest, I can rarely get myself off without toys – MYSELF! And most toys fail at the task. So I did what any logical horny and single woman would do: I bought a Magic Wand.
We-Vibe Tango Origins
We-Vibe is a Canadian owned brand that came into the market in 2003, launching with their C shaped couples vibrator. This was a revolutionary advance in sex toys – finally something to vibrate on your clit during penetration hands free. While the early models left something to be desired, they brought We-Vibe into the headlines, making it now one of the top trusted sex toy companies. I have mixed feelings about the products I have tried, but the We-Vibe Tango does not disappoint in being the most powerful vibrator, if you’re looking for something mini.

Battery Life and Material
While you may want to charge Tango between uses, depending how long you go for, it boasts a battery life of two hours. If you need more than two hours using this thing consistently, there is something seriously wrong with your clit (or, more likely, you’re like me and find it nearly impossible to get off. Still, two hours?)
The We-Vibe Tango also uses only body-safe PC ABS thermoplastic, avoiding phthalates, latex, and BP. It is a teeny tiny vibrator, measuring only 3.7″ (9.3cm). It looks so tiny next to my Magic Wand.
I was skeptical before buying the We-Vibe Tango. The most powerful vibrator I have ever found, and one of the undisputed best vibrators on the market, is easily the Magic Wand. My roommate reviews sex toys at Squirrelmunk, and got me on to this whole sex toy review stuff (all praise Squirrelmunk!), so when I decided I simply needed a smaller vibrator for use during sex, he had my back. I researched a bit and found vibrator reviews on a pretty cheap bullet vibe (it was around $30). It had great reviews, and I was on the verge of buying it. I just had to ask the roomie’s opinion first, as I hadn’t started my own reviews at the time. I was not as knowledgeable as him.
He stopped me, thank god.
It wasn’t that the cheap vibrator wasn’t body safe or anything like that. But it wasn’t going to pack that punch I needed. I was going to spend the $30 only to be horribly disappointed. He knew my Magic Wand was my favourite toy, and he knew just what I needed: the We-Vibe Tango.
Let me tell you, the motor on this thing is epic, and freakishly quiet. The top speed is comparable to somewhere in between the second and third levels on the Magic Wand rechargeable model. As the Magic Wand only has four speeds, and I generally use number two or three (remember, this is for someone who finds it extremely difficult to orgasm), this is absolute perfection. If you need a huge amount of vibration and find it hard to orgasm, the We-Vibe Tango is absolutely for you. (And there are eight vibration modes, so if you are not as difficult to get off as me, don’t worry, the low settings are for you as well!).
We-Vibes products, from the We-Vibe Chorus couples’ vibrator to the We-Vibe Jive g-spot stimulator, are all waterproof. Unlike many water resistant vibrators on the market, this one is a 100% waterproof vibrator. Use it in the shower, in the bath, in the hot tub, in the lake, in the ocean, in the pool (wait, you guys are getting pretty kinky here, I would have stopped at bath).
There are three cons to this most powerful vibrator you’ll find in a mini form: controlling the speeds, keeping a grip, and not being able to use the We-Connect app.
On my Magic Wand I love that the lights indicate what speed I’m on, but obviously with a bullet vibe there’s no room to do this. Many of We-Vibe’s products connect to the We-Connect app, but the We-Vibe Tango doesn’t have the connectivity. It’s really not a big deal, you just click through the settings until you find what you’re looking for – minorly annoying, but nothing major. Unlike the VeDO Bump butt plug, the button is easy to press so it’s not a problem during sex or solo.
The other con is keeping a grasp on it. I find that if I’m going for a long time my hand begins to go a bit numb and slips. Other times I use it during sex, and I can only have two tiny fingers on it so it’s not in the way, causing it to slip all over. Plus, you know, it’s wet down there what with everything going on, so the thing is not dry and easy to grasp.
Alas, there is a solution to this. You can get grips for your bullet vibe that go on your fingers – voila! There are dedicated ones just for bullet vibes, but they generally only come with a vibe. You could always get a cheap vibrator that comes with a holder and switch out the vibe for the We-Vibe Tango. Or you could get something cheap that isn’t intended for this purpose, but will (probably) get the job done.
Final Thoughts and Overall Rating
Well, my only two cons about the We-Vibe Tango are easily resolved, and I can’t stop raving about it. I’ve already had several friends purchase one after going on and on to them about how awesome it is. Use it solo or use it during sex in any position you want (unlike the extreme limitations of positions with the Magic Wand). Get a little grip for the We-Vibe Tango, and it is now the perfect miniature most powerful vibrator. Get on it. You won’t regret it.
