Here are the Orion VibePad 2's dimensions:
- Length: 11.4"/29cm.
- Width: 8.15"/20.7cm.
- Height: 1.14"-1.65"/2.9-4.2cm.
- Weight: 0.91lbs/415g.
How it Works
The Orion VibePad 2 is pretty straightforward. There is a small three button remote to operate the functions; the tongue, rear motor and vibration pattern/intensity. The power button is located on the underside of the pad (you can't turn it on or off from the remote). I plugged the pad in as soon as I snapped the pics I needed for the review as I was very eager to get at it.
There is a blinking purple light to indicate that it's charging which turns solid once it's done; it took a little over an hour. It was at this point I discovered the remote is also rechargeable and needs to be plugged in. Womp womp.
All was not lost, however, as you can still cycle through the functions by pressing the power button. Obviously, it is a bit awkward, as you need to get off the pad to press the button, but it's nice to be able to have a workaround.
You can operate the vibrations separately from the tongue and you can use the warmth all on its own.
Materials and Care
The Orion VibePad 2 is soft silicone and it's waterproof. That means it is soft and body-safe, but make sure you are using water-based lube so you don't degrade the silicone with silicone-based lube. The waterproof aspect is fun, too, if you are inclined to make bathtime a little sexier. It also means that it's easy to clean. The hole that surrounds the tongue can act as a reservoir, so a cotton swab will come in handy!

The package arrived in a plain (although somewhat large) brown box that was very discreet. Inside, the VibePad box is designed to be displayed in a store, not so much to store your toy long-term. It has line drawings of a naked person sitting on the toy, but they aren't incredibly graphic. The VibePad box is not what I would call "discreet," though.
The Verdict: Five Kinkly Hearts out of Five
I really like this toy. It is different than the other external vibrators I have in my collection in that it feels like a more active experience -- and that really works for me. It may take a little adjustment to make the VibePad work for your body, but in my opinion, the effort is worth it!
Rocks Off Ruby Glow: If the tongue and warming features of the VibePad 2 don't appeal, check out the Glow. The grinding surface is textured for a different feel and the ridges are more pronounced, which may mean you don't need to prop the toy up with a pillow like some people prefer to do with the Vibepad.

Wild Flower Enby 2: The Orion VibePad 2 is excellent at what it does, but if you are looking for something with more versatility, the Enby Wildflower is a great choice. In addition to using the vibrations to sit on, you can wrap the "wings" around a penis to create a stroker or use the Wildflower in any number of creative ways.
