Magic Wand- Rechargeable Review

By: Lilith

Let’s be honest, I’ve had a lot of sex toys for a variety of purposes. Since I work in a sex store the temptations to get a new one gets me almost every week. Yet this bad boy has been my go-to since I got it during the fall because of its amazing power that is almost totally unique to the Hitachi Magic Wand. My personal massager and romantic partner at this point gives me options, doesn’t tie me down with cords and rumbles so sweet! This is my honest review of the Hitachi Magic Wand- the Rechargeable version.

I have more often than not been a small bullet clit kinda girl. You can check out my glowing review for the We-Vibe Touch. But even the best bullet vibe can’t compete power-wise the larger Magic Wand. More of a rumble power than a buzzing, you feel the vibrations all over your wiggly bits rather than directly onto the clit. The great thing about this new Hitachi version is the soft silicone head rather than the harder rubber one the original features. Just make sure that you are careful not to use silicone lubricant or toys with the wand because it will damage the silicone head. Another upgrade is the amount of settings for the rechargeable. The original has only two settings: really fracking powerful and super powerful, whereas the rechargeable has 4 constant settings going up in power and 4 pulsating settings. You don’t even have to move at all with the pulsating; the toy does all of the work. The range of settings makes this toy much more multi-purpose as both a sextoy and a massager. While the uber-strong settings of the original is great for shoulders, and back massage it can be very overpowering on the sensitive clit. Having the option to build up to the strongest setting makes for a much more comfortable and enjoyable sexual experience that more people can appreciate- alas not everyone is a power-groupie.

Rechargeable products are by and far better than battery operated ones and ones which plug into the wall because they last longer, are generally stronger and cords wear-down no matter the quality. Nothing is more sad then having your favorite toy break-down after a few years because of the cord. With the rechargeable you don’t have to worry about that or about needing an extension cord to be able to reach yourself or a partner. Here are some of the stats:

  • Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (7.2V/2250mAh)
  • 4 power intensities. (Low – 2,700rpms, Medium – 3,800rpms, High – 5,400rpms, Ultra – 6,300rpms)
  • 4 vibration patterns
  • 20 minutes of use with automatic shut off feature which will preserve battery life and charge.  This device has a 3 hour run time on a full charge.
  • 13 inches long
  • 1-year manufacturer’s warranty

This baby is amazingly powerful. But for sex toy lovers you may be thinking… but what about penetration. Well the top of the wand cannot be used to penetrate but the attachments that have been made for the original will fit this version as well. There is so many attachments on the market so make sure to double check that it is compatible with Hitachi Magic Wands and not some knockoffs. I personally really liked the g-spot attachment. The only problem with the attachments is that they are hard to get on and off of the head of the toy. Try lubing up the toy before putting on the attachment to make it easier and make sure to always take it off after you are done using it to make your toy lasts as long as possible. If you are one for really deep and hard penetration then this toy might not be great because the neck is a little fragile. I’ve not broken it yet but I’ve felt like I was going to while using it.

Now I’ve written about this toy from a very female perspective but don’t think this is limited to female bodies- everyone can enjoy this toy. If you have male genitalia then try the wand underneath on the perineum or even lightly on the balls to get an interesting reaction! You can also try this toy with external and internal anal play. Make sure to use proper lube for anal play that won’t dry out on you but go to town. You can clean the head with soap and water but be careful not to get the toy too wet as you can damage the electrical inside. I might just stick with a toy cleaner because then you can control where everything goes. And remember that this product is a massager so try it on your shoulders, back, neck and anywhere else that needs some loosening up.

Of course, with every toy there are some downsides. The toy is fairly heavy for a hand-held vibrator so it might not be a long session for playing– that said the power of this thing is bound to make your climax happen quickly. I also get nervous about the neck of the toy breaking if I use too much pressure on the head or go too hard with an attachment. I wish it were a solid toy instead of with a strange neck. While attachments can be fun, it is a pain in the ass to get them on and off of this guy. So much so that I usually avoid using an attachment because it’s not worth it for me. Lastly, the toy is also not water-proof at all. If you happen to have a lot of personal lubrication from squirting or whatnot – make sure to put a condom on the toy to protect it from liquid damage.

Even with the downsides, I absolutely love this toy. It is my go-to vibrator and I adore experimenting with it. While the price might be steep for some at $190.99 in store, it is an investment you won’t regret because this bad boy will last you for years. This company is well known for a reason. We have been waiting for a rechargeable version of the original for years. The Original has been the most powerful hand-held vibrator for 30 years and now they’ve gotten better! I love mine and I know you will love yours.

Thank you to Wicked Wanda’s Adult Emporium for allowing me to review this stellar product. In exchange for an honest review, I was given this toy to try out!
