Magic Wand Original Vs Magic Wand Rechargeable

If Wonder Woman was a Vibrator She’d be the Magic Wand

Wonder Woman with the magic wand vibratorLike Wonder Woman, the Magic Wand has strength, speed, durability, and longevity.  It is highly skilled at hand-to-vulva action, is virtually indestructible and KICKS ASS!

While the Magic Wand doesn’t sport a Lasso of Truth, boomerang tiara, and shiny bulletproof bracelets (called Aphrodite’s Bracelets of Submission), it has stood the test of time giving women amazing orgasms since the 1970s when it first appeared on the market and was then championed by Betty Dodson during her BodySex Workshops for women.


The Magic Wand Original—Still the Cadillac of Vibrators

magic wand original hitachiThe new and improved Magic Wand Original (formerly the Hitachi Magic Wand) is still the “Cadillac of Vibrators”.

While the Magic Wand Original was not the first vibrator to be invented, it is certainly the oldest one that is still being used today.  It first appeared on the market during in 1968 as the Hitachi Magic Wand, and like its predecessors, was promoted as a vibrating muscle relaxer, “for soothing and relaxing sore muscles and nerves, [and] relieving tension.”

Lovingly nicknamed the “Cadillac of Vibrators,” the Magic Wand remains the most powerful clitoral and vulva sexual massager on the market today.  And, while it could never be called sexy, and doesn’t sport cute bunny ears (or magic bracelets), what matters most to the women who swear by it, is that it works.

Since its launch in the North American market, 10s of thousands of women have been singing the praises of this modest looking sex toy, in loud orgasmic voices.

This is because, seventy percent of women orgasm via clitoral stimulation, and don’t get off on penetration.  An estimated twenty percent of women can’t reach climax at all.  Many sex counselors promote the use of the Magic Wand for women who have trouble reaching orgasm, or find it hard to get sexually aroused.

For the modern sex savvy girl, the Magic Wand is really where it’s at.  While all the innovative sex toys on the market are interesting—from pleasure objects to pocket rockets—none can truly compare to the Hitachi Magic Wand when it comes to power.

The Magic Wand has two speeds: Intense and Ultra Intense.  It is the most powerful intimate massager I have ever tried (except for it’s rechargeable sister).  I have used several other plug-in massagers as well as rechargeable ones, none of which can match the Magic Wand (don’t be fooled by look-a-likes!).  For some women, it may be the only vibrator that will get them off at all.

Yes, it is heavy, it plugs-in, it is loud and not too pretty.  But, for the ultimate in vibrating intensity and dependability, the Magic Wand is the Queen of female orgasms.  That is why after 40 years, it is still the best selling plug-in sexual massager in the world.

The Magic Wand—Unplugged!

While the Magic Wand Original was and is amazing, it does have a few drawbacks:

It is heavy, it plugs in, and only has 2 speeds.

So, the savvy peeps at Vibratex who took over the Magic Wand label from Hitachi came out with the new Magic Wand Rechargeable which fixes many of the issues the “Original” had.

Let’s compare, shall we?

Okay, so the Magic Wand Rechargeable is super-fantastic and has better features than the Original. Not having to worry about plugging it in during use is a big plus, because cords get tangled and messy, sometimes are long enough and need extension cords, and just overall suck.

Duration and Recharging

It says the Rechargeable will last for about 3 hours if you run it on full charge for that length of time and takes 3 hours to fully charge as well. A very cool feature is that you can run the Rechargeable while it is plugged in and recharging, which you can’t do with many rechargeable vibes.

Power and Extra Speeds

The 3rd speed is powerful enough to give you orgasms quickly. The 4th speed will knock your socks off. Seriously, 2-3 minute orgasms lickity split.

The new Rechargeable feels much more rumbly than the Original, which has a higher whirring sound. I don’t know why, maybe it is just in my head but the rumbly feels better.

The Rechargeable also has 4 different vibrating functions or patterns, plus the main steady vibration speed. These include slow and quick pulses, oscillations and low/high waves of vibrations. Personally, I’m not a fan of pulsating patterns in vibes (I find slow and steady is the best way to win the race). But, I didn’t actually mind these settings and may try them by themselves.

The 3 separate buttons make the toy much more user-friendly and are easier to navigate, even in the dark. And, if you press a pattern button by mistake, no worries, press the on/off button and the vibe goes back to steady vibration in a snap.

The new silicone head is awesome.  Silicone is also the only soft type of sex toy material that is completely body friendly and can be sterilized. You can remove the head cover and clean/sterilize it separately, so it’s perfect if you are sharing toys. It is smooth, soft, and feels GRRREAT!



The Rechargeable is still a heavy toy, especially if you are holding it up to 20 minutes. But, I dare you to last that long on the highest setting. Still, even 5 minutes, and your wrist is going to feel the strain. A wand holder would come in handy to fix this, like the Liberator Pillow called the Axis Hitachi that allows you to position the wand, hands-free.

Is This the Toy for Me?

I think any woman who swears by the Magic Wand Original would LOVE the upgrades of the new Rechargeable. Yes, it is almost twice the price, but when compared to some higher priced luxury vibes, the Rechargeable blows them all away. Personally, I would never go back to the Original unless my new Rechargeable bit the dust.

And, for women who have a hard time achieving orgasms, the Magic Wand Rechargeable (and Original) are still the best vibes on the market that will get you there. Trusted for over 30 years for giving women amazing orgasms! Just sayin! 😉

  1. Hi, I’ve heard lots about the new Magic Wand rechargeable that it breaks really easily and won’t hold a charge or turn on and off again. Have you had experience with this? I had a similar device by OhMibod the love life wanderlust vibrator that broke and they replaced it for me twice because it stopped turning on or holding a charge after a few months. So I am wondering if it’s worth purchasing this one if the same thing is going to happen. Thanks for any feedback.

  2. I’ve tried four different rechargeables models. ALL A DISSAPOINTMENT. This new and improved magic wand has never held a charge, and now doesn’t work at all. I’ve had it less then one month. The original lasted me ten years.
