I don't know if PIU sells the wood stem that you can get from MVT. The MVT is a bit smaller and somewhat sleeker than the tubo but you need to get 14 mm instead of 18mm stems unlike the milaana and tubo. It only takes a few seconds to get up to usable heat and turns off quickly. Simple to use. I have an older one that came with a turn off switch but I don't think that comes standard anymore. I still recommend getting the Ddave 14 mm prepack if you do go with this. There are smaller vapes out there but for people who are not familiar with vaping it doesn't look like a vape or an ecig when not in use which help stealth. One other thing about the mvt is that it is very active on the board. If you have any problems at all, you'll get help quickly. I couldn't get a screen out of the wood stem and mentioned that in the thread and was offered help including sending something to remove it right away. There's an advantage- no matter where you buy it- to get a product by a developer on the board.
