    RBT may be retiring the Milaana, but there is a new Milaana 2 with numerous improvements over the OG.

    Ordered it direct from Ryan (RBT). When you go to his site use the search feature (Magnifying glass) and search for Milaana 2. This will bring up all the Milaana 2 vapes, then you need to check and see what is in stock, there are only two price points. He only ships on Mondays. I expect have it in my grubby little paws shortly!! Respect! -YaMon

    Technically, the Mi 1 has been discontinued, but I believe Ryan still has some in stock. The Mi 2 is still active. Right now the website store is closed because Ryan's busy fulfilling retailer inventory so I suggest you contact Stephanie @ info@rastabuddatao.com or through Sales here:

    Don't know which one she'll reply to so try 1, wait a few days & then try the other.

    Unless something big has changed, the Mi 2 isn't regulated. It's almost exactly the same as the Mi 1 functionally it just has a new glass manufacturer and a different air intake/cosmetic changes.

    @ZC, I don't even have to research who's right as once @Other Side liked your post, I immediately knew that you're right. ;) I shall now edit my post. :)

    Yes there is some Milaana II out there. Vgoodiez.com and I think Ryan sent some to Vapefiend and possibly some of the Canadian retailers. That said I don't know more will be produced moving forward. Possibly a Chinese variant if there is demand.

    I received my Milaana 2 on Saturday and was able to use it a bit over the weekend. This is my first unregulated vape apart from the DynaVap so I am still learning an taking it slow.

    My first impressions are 1) This thing is cool, love that it is all wood and glass. 2) I was surprised at how small the bowl is and will be looking for adapter to use with a WP and perhaps have a longer stem available. 3) I do wish there was a spot in the body to store the stir stick.

    I will provide more feedback, I just need to use it a bit more which is challenging given most of the time you cannot pry me away from my FlowerPot

    Does anyone of you know what's up with the current exotic orders? I haven't received any news from Ryan since I placed my order with him back in July...

    @Summer, yes I did about two days ago. Got no answer yet. Don't know if this is related, but I live in Canada. Even if he promised it for the waiting list subscribers, maybe he decided to cancel international orders? That would be a shame, but who knows... I didn't pay yet.

    Canada has nothing to do with you getting a reply. I'd wait a couple more days & if you don't get an answer, send another email to both info@rastabuddhatao.com & through the website's sales contact.

    So I have had my Milaana 2 (Mi2) for a few days, I have only one regret; it did not come with a long stem. I read RBT used to ship two stems with the Milanna. I knew that going into the purchase, but now that I have the Mi2 I think I would really appreciate it.

    Having recently sold my FireFly2 I was looking for an on demand vape to replace it and the Mi2 is a solid addition to my vape line up. While the taste was more pure and the vapor cooler with the FF2, further comparison would be pointless as they are very different vapes. The FF2 seems to be trying to be something it is not, while the Mi2 is as true to form as battery operated vape could be. Between the wood, glass and the hardy button this vape feels very sturdy, just don't get it wet as @jardri may attest to.

    The Mi2 is so good I am contemplating glassing and epoxying the exterior so that it is mostly waterproof, at least enough so that if I set it upon a wet surface it will survive unscathed.

    A battery gauge of some type would be handy, but I would not want to complicate this vape as it would take away from the simplicity and beauty. Along those lines as an unregulated noob I was wondering from time to time where the vapor was, but a new battery cured that problem. I would only add options for the stem and elongate the intake hole. Being round, that intake hole whistles ever so slightly. Not noticeable unless it's the middle of the night and you are trying to hit it bedside without waking others beside you.

    Getting really knit picky, the battery terminal and guitar pick are mounted on middle left of the top of the vape placing the stem above and the button and intake facing up. If you are right-handed as I am this is a minor problem. If you have the pick swung out and you want to set the vape down on it's side with your right hand, it will not lie flat. To lie it flat you have to rotate it or push the pick in. I could relocate the pivot point, but then I run the risk of splitting the side of the vape, it will be unsightly and with any luck these may be ordered as either left or right handed down the road. I could stand the vape up, but I would worry about the table getting bumped and it falling over.

    I purchased the Walnut with Sepele base, it's a piece of art work. It is as comfortable and pleasing in the hand as it is on the eyes. I wish I could take it to the Caribbean on my next stretch. @RastaBuddhaTao need any help cranking out product let know what I can do to help. Awesome! Big ups! Maximum Respect! -YaMon
