Magic Wand Rechargeable Vibrator Review

Sarah Riccio

The Magic Wand Original was made to relieve neck and back pain — or so they say. For the past 60 years, its real claim to fame has been an unrivaled ability to stimulate the clitoris. In fact, the Magic Wand is considered one of the most iconic sex toys ever invented!

And just when folks thought it couldn’t get any better, a cordless, rechargeable model hit the scene. But in a rapidly changing industry filled with high-quality pleasure devices, does the Magic Wand still deserve a cherished spot in millions of bedside drawers?  

Well buckle up, everybody, because this Magic Wand review explores “little black dress” of vibrators in great detail. I’ll show you how it works, who it’s best for, and how it compares to the original corded Magic Wand. Plus, I impart expert tips for making the most of your orgasm.

Brand Snapshot 

The Magic Wand was invented in the late 1960s by Hitachi, a Japanese brand that was (and still is) a world leader in electronics. Hitachi originally marketed the Magic Wand as a massage tool, touting its extra-powerful vibration as the remedy for neck and back tension, but the sex-positive people of the 60s quickly discovered its hidden potential. Before long, the Hitachi name became almost exclusively associated with sex toys, prompting the brand to bring Magic Wand production to a halt (nooo!). 

Luckily, sex toy distributor Vibratex persuaded Hitachi to keep manufacturing the beloved vibrator under a new name Magic Wand Original. Since then, there have been consistent improvements to the 60s model, including the introduction of a sleek, cordless, rechargeable wand. So, let's check it out, shall we?

Unboxing the Magic Wand 

First, let’s take a quick peek at packaging.

The Magic Wand comes in a cardboard box that’s sturdy enough to repurpose for quick toy storage, but not a longterm storage option. There's some good information on the box itself, including warranty details, motor strength, and a little history of the Magic Wand Original

Inside the box, you’ll find the Magic Wand Rechargeable, its charger, and a thorough User Manual that illustrates everything from charging and wash care to troubleshooting and proper storage. The manual also includes detailed instructions for how to use it but — not to toot my own horn — my explanation is more exciting. So let’s get into it!

Magic Wand Review: Is It Worth The Hype?

I’m going to try very hard to give an unbiased review, but I should disclose that the Magic Wand has been my go-to vibrator for over ten years. It’s also responsible for my very first orgasm during sex with a partner, so it does hold a special place in my heart.

But before I really get into my own experience with the Magic Wand, let’s take a closer look at what it’s designed to do. 

Construction and design

The Magic Wand Original is an external vibrator designed for clitoral stimulation. It’s offered in both corded and cordless options, both of which are very powerful, but have their own special set of benefits.

The newer, cordless model (which is what we’re looking at here) features four levels of speed intensity, as well as four vibration patterns. Folks in search of strong vibration sensations are going to be most compatible with the Magic Wand, as it’s powered by a motor that can reach up to 6,300 RPM (rotations per minute).

For context, 6,300 RPM is approximately equivalent to a speed of 90 miles per hour. So, if you’ve been wondering if this vibrator is really as powerful as they say it is — trust me — the rumors are true. 

The Magic Wand is 13-inches from end to end. The body of the wand is made from body-safe ABS plastic, the head is made from silicone, as is the flexible neck that joins the head to the body. The smooth silicone head is perhaps the best improvement to the early Magic Wand model, which used thermoplastic rubber instead.

Features and settings

There are three buttons on the body of the Magic Wand — one to regulate speed, one to change vibration patterns, and one to turn it on and off. There are four different vibration speeds and patterns (another nice improvement to the corded model), with the highest speed being quite intense.  

Something great about the length of the Magic Wand is how much room it gives you to experiment with partnered play. Want to vibrate your partner’s clit while they’re tied to a chair that’s three feet from where you’re sitting? Simply hold the end of this wand like a sword and have at thee!

If you’re playing with more than one person, this wand’s 9.5-inch body can easily accommodate several pairs of hands. If you like to get creative with furniture, you’ll be glad to know that many brands design pillows, ottomans, and other accessories specifically to be used as Magic Wand mounts.

But if you’re not looking to drop dough on new sex furniture, this vibrator can also be rigged between couch cushions, strapped to a mattress, fastened to the seat of a car… so get creative! Wherever you put it, the Magic Wand’s smooth, round, silicone head makes it a great toy to grind on.

Now, you might be wondering whether the corded or cordless option is the right fit. Personally, I have both, and adore them equally. But if I had to pick between them, I’d choose the cordless, rechargeable Magic Wand. It’s easier to maneuver, great for play on the go, and features extra vibration patterns.

However, it is slightly less powerful than the corded wand. But don’t fret — this vibrator can be used even while it’s charging so you can enjoy full intensity for as long as you like.

The Verdict: New Features, Same Legendary Strength 

In my opinion, this is the definition of “new and improved.” The Magic Wand Rechargeable offers all the benefits of the original, but it’s sleeker, more portable, and offers more speed and vibration variation.

Yes, it’s a bit less powerful but, for me, the difference is negligible. So whether you’re already a Magic Wand loyalist or you’re aching to know what all the fuss is about, I can’t recommend this vibrator highly enough

Should I Buy the Magic Wand Rechargeable? 

Now you know how I feel about the Magic Wand, but let’s recap the highlights so you can decide if it’s the best vibrator for you.

It's super strong

If you’re in the market for a powerful, wand-style vibrator, it doesn't get better than this. The Magic Wand’s motor reaches 6,300 RPM, and the battery lasts forever. Between the strong vibration and long battery life, I never find myself racing to finish before my Magic Wand dies. Maybe that’s why its creators call it a “sure thing!”

It has a smooth silicone head

The Magic Wand has a body-safe silicone head that’s very gentle on bare skin. Back when the head was made from thermoplastic rubber, I used to masturbate through a cotton sheet because the material was too rough for direct contact. So, this is definitely an improvement!

It's rechargeable and cordless

If you love your Magic Wand but wish you didn’t have to plug it into the wall, this toy is for you. It delivers the same power-packed pleasure as the corded model, but doesn’t require you to play near an outlet.

It's great for partnered play

The Magic Wand is one of my favorite toys for partnered play. If you both have a vulva, slip the silicone head between your bodies and get your grind on together. If you’re enjoying PIV sex, hold the wand against your clit while your partner reaps the benefits of indirect vibration.

It can be used with accessories

If you’re wishing this toy offered some internal stimulation, be sure to look into Magic Wand accessories. In addition to the furniture and harnesses made specifically for this vibrator, there are a variety of accessories that can be attached to the head of your wand. Some are designed to target your G-spot, some are textured, others mimic the shape of a tongue.

Magic Wand Rechargeable Potential Cons 

As with all sex toys, there are a few things to consider about the Magic Wand Rechargeable before you make your purchase.

It's not waterproof

The Magic Wand is not waterproof, nor is it water resistant — so no shower fun to be had here. To clean it, you can use a sanitizing spray and/or mild liquid soap and a wet washcloth. Do not submerge this vibrator or get it super wet or you risk damaging your precious wand!

It's not whisper quiet

Because of its larger size and heavy duty motor, the Magic Wand isn’t the quietest vibrator on the market. It’s not noisy enough for me to forgo all the pleasure it brings, but I do wish it sounded a bit softer. 

That said, the Magic Mini is a smaller, quieter, more travel-friendly version of the Magic Wand that's still super strong and rumbly!

It's easy to rely on

Because the Magic Wand is so good at its job, some folks might become reliant on it. Can your clitoris become desensitized by sex toys? No. But orgasms can be harder to come by when we get reliant upon one specific method. If you find that you’re having a hard time orgasming without your Magic Wand, try switching it up with a different toy to keep things fresh.

Delicto Expert Tips

Before you go, allow me to impart a few tips and tricks that might enhance your Magic Wand experience:

Indirect Stimulation

If you prefer indirect clitoral stimulation and/or find the Magic Wand to be a bit too intense, try positioning the head of the vibrator above or to the side of your clit. You can also use a sheet or your underwear as a buffer to make that vibrator-to-skin contact less overpowering.

Automatic Shutdown

You know that feeling when your vibrator dies mid-masturbation and you fly into a blind rage of sexual frustration? Yeah, me too. That’s why it’s important to remember that the rechargeable Magic Wand automatically shuts off after 20 minutes of continuous use. If this happens, just turn it right back on and keep playing!

Experiment with Rhythm

In my experience, it can be pretty easy to rely on the Magic Wand for every orgasm. To keep things fresh and prevent myself from becoming too dependent on a specific kind of vibration, I like to experiment with the Magic Wand’s various speeds and patterns. This way, I keep my clit guessing while still enjoying my go-to vibe.

Is the Magic Wand quiet?

The Magic Wand is surprisingly quiet considering its super strong motor, but it’s not whisper quiet. The higher speed settings are going to be a bit louder than the lower settings, but I’ve tested smaller, less powerful vibrators that are much louder than this one. 

Is the Magic Wand worth it?

Ultimately, this comes down to a matter of personal preference, and I can’t definitively say that the Magic Wand is going to be worth it for you. Speaking from personal experience, though, I can tell you that this vibrator could be $500 and I’d still save my pennies to spring for it. For me, it’s more than worth it.
