Our Verdict

The BMS PalmPower Extreme is the wand I use most! 

It’s the most powerful rechargeable wand I’ve tested, surpassing all but the corded Doxy Die Cast, which is buzzier and underperforms in other areas. The PalmPower Extreme also has great low and moderate levels for those who need a warmup or prefer milder stimulation. 

Its rumbly-to-neutral vibration range is right in my sweet spot, as it remains extremely rumbly on lower settings without becoming buzzy on high. Other comparably powerful wands like the Magic Wand Plus and Doxy Die Cast become buzzy at their highest settings.

Despite its power, this wand is more compact and lighter than full-sized wands making it easier to maneuver. The angled head helps it fit comfortably between our bodies during sex and makes applying firm pressure easy. It’s also my favorite wand to use hands-free with a mount. Its excellent vibrations, comfort, and ease of use have made this my go-to wand.

Compare Wand Vibrators​

The BMS PalmPower Extreme is an excellent wand. It’s one of the most powerful wand vibrators and has better overall performance than similarly strong wands like the Doxy Die Cast and Magic Wand Plus. The PalmPower Extreme is more powerful, more comfortable, better during sex, and less expensive than other top-performing wands like the Fun Factory Vim and Magic Wand Rechargeable. But it is louder and less rumbly than these wands.

What is it:

How strong the wand vibrator’s highest power level feels.

When does it matter:

If you prefer the extreme power some wands offer or want to make sure your wand at least reaches a certain strength.

Power Range Rating:

9.0

What is it:

How wide the range is between the highest and lowest power levels, and whether it has enough power levels that steps between levels aren’t too large.

When does it matter:

A broad power range is usually important because it enables more versatile stimulation. You can start on softer levels when your body isn’t ready for crazy strong power. But when you want more strength, you can turn it up high.

Power vs Frequency Graph:

What is it:

A graph of each wand vibrator’s power vs frequency across all of its power levels. 

When does it matter:

If you want a detailed look at the full power and frequency characteristics of any particular wand vibrator. This will tell you how strong and how rumbly each setting of the wand feels.

How Strong Is Each Power?

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to … 

(Expand Descriptions)

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to the vibration strength of mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like the Lelo Mona 2, Lovense Hyphy, Lovense Lush 3, We-Vibe Nova 2, etc.
  • Power between 4.5 and 7: Slightly to moderately more powerful than mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like those mentioned above. 
  • Power ≥ 7: Substantially stronger than other kinds of vibrators. These levels feel extremely powerful.

The Vibration Power scale is defined with a 10.0 given to the most powerful wand vibrator’s highest strength (Currently the Doxy Die Cast). So a vibration power of 8.0 feels 80% as strong as the Doxy Die Cast. A 5.0 feels 50% as strong, and so on.

The BMS PalmPower Extreme is the most powerful rechargeable wand vibrator, with a top strength of 9 out of 10. 

Only the Magic Wand Plus (also 9 out of 10) and the Doxy Die Cast (10 out of 10) are comparable. But these are both plug-in wands, and few people will need their additional power. I usually orgasm on the PalmPower Extreme’s second level, rarely using the third, and almost never the top power because it’s so immense. But power queens and kings will love these upper settings.

Three strongest wands – left to right: BMS PalmPower Extreme, Magic Wand Plus and Doxy Die Cast

The lowest setting’s 2 out of 10 strength is excellent because I need these softer vibrations for a warm-up. I’m not ready for the second level’s strength immediately, so I spend considerable time on the first level.  This setting is impactful, warming me up without feeling overwhelming. Then, I switch to the second level and usually finish there!

You can also access a broad range of power levels spanning between the 4 default settings by using PalmPower’s incremental control. By holding the plus or minus button, the wand’s power will slowly and gradually change power. When it reaches your desired strength, release the button.

With its wide power range from soft to extreme and the ability to gradually step through levels, most people will find something they enjoy.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

7.8

What is it:

How “rumbly” (low frequency) or “buzzy” (high frequency) a wand vibrator feels at each of its power levels. And whether a wand can deliver strong vibrations while remaining reasonably rumbly. Higher scores indicate a “more rumbly” (lower-frequency) wand, since the majority of people prefer rumbliness. But ultimately vibration frequency is a personal preference.

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a specific area along the rumbly-to-buzzy spectrum.

(Moderately Rumbly)

What is it:

What part of the frequency spectrum a wand vibrator’s power levels are centered around. It’s the vibration frequency of the wand’s middle power level (the average of the two middle levels if there is an even number of settings).

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a particular part of the frequency spectrum. This is a fast way to see whether one wand’s vibration levels are generally more rumbly or buzzy than another wand’s vibration settings. Since most people prefer rumbly toys, a higher performance score implies a lower-frequency (more rumbly) wand.

Ave Power Per Frequency:

7.7

What is it:

A measure that rewards wand vibrators that remain rumbly (low-frequency) while packing good vibration strength. Calculated for a wand using the normalized power / normalized frequency at each power level and taking the median.

When does it matter:

If you want a wand with a good balance of power and rumbliness.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

The BMS PalmPower Extreme’s frequency range is right in my sweet spot, ranging from extremely rumbly to neutral. The lowest level is extremely rumbly – part of what makes it an excellent warmup level that’s not overstimulating. And the second level (my favorite) is moderately rumbly. To me, this is the perfect combination of the comfortable, deep impact that comes from rumbliness, and the bit of a “zing” that extremely rumbly vibrations are sometimes missing.

As you increase power, a wand’s frequency always becomes less rumbly, and the PalmPower Extreme’s top two levels are neutral. But it doesn’t cross into the buzzy range as other comparably powerful wands like the Magic Wand Plus and Doxy Die Cast do. But if you value exceptional rumbliness, you may enjoy the Fun Factory Vim more.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

9.2

What is it:

How comfortable the wand is to hold and press against your body. As well as how easy it is to press the buttons, leverage the wand for good pressure, and maneuver it to apply the stimulation where and how you want it. This rating also includes how easy the wand is to clean. Ratings are based primarily on solo use – I cover use during partnered sex here.

When does it matter:

If you are easily distracted by subtle discomforts such as feeling the vibrations in your hands, slight wrist strain, or an awkward grip on the handle. It also matters if you want a wand that’s easy to use for a wide variety of stimulation or for long periods of time.

These wands have excellent performance in this category and others. We only include wands we recommend overall, excluding wands that perform well here but not in other areas.

Waterproof Rating:

IPX7

What is it:

The waterproof rating of the wand vibrator – IPX7, IPX6, or No Rating

When does it matter:

When you plan to use your wand vibrator in the shower or want simpler cleaning.

  • IPX7 (Submersible): Wands with this rating are considered “waterproof.” You can submerge them in water up to a meter deep for up to 30 minutes. So you can use them in the bath and cleaning is easy.
  • IPX6 (Splashproof): Wands with this rating can resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water, but should not be fully submerged. This means you can use them in the shower (but not submerged in a bath). You can also clean them under a sink faucet without worry.
  • No Rating: These wands do not have a waterproof rating. You should not use them in the shower, and you must be careful to keep water away from electronic components when cleaning them .

Though this wand has the power and broad head of a full-sized wand, the PalmPower Extreme is more compact and lighter making it easy to maneuver like a mini wand. The weight feels balanced in my hands and the silicone-backed handle is comfortable to grip.

Most importantly, the angled head is not a gimmick, as I thought it might be before using this wand. It helps me leverage the wand more easily and apply pressure while keeping my hands in a comfortable position. I value comfort, so this was a major benefit for me.

Unlike the Magic Wand Rechargeable’s plush silicone, the PalmPower Extreme’s head is firm, yet still comfortable since the neck has some flexibility; But not too much that applying firm pressure becomes difficult. It’s an excellent balance.

BMS PalmPower Extreme vs Magic Wand Plush Head Comparison
More firm head of the BMS PalmPower Extreme (left) vs the more plush head of the Magic Wand Rechargeable (right)

The buttons are easy to feel and press without looking. There are separate buttons to increase and decrease power, so you don’t need to cycle through intensity levels. The incremental control is great for accessing power levels beyond the 4 default settings. Hold the plus or minus button to gradually change the power and release it when it reaches a level you enjoy.

And it’s the only wand this powerful that’s fully waterproof – so cleaning it is easy.

I reach for this wand very often, because it provides a great, comfortable experience, with excellent vibrations!

This wand is in my top two for use during sex (and my favorite to use with a wand mount for hands-free sex). 

While its head isn’t tiny like mini wands, it’s slimmer and smaller than full-sized wands. So it still fits well between bodies and in tight spaces during sex. And since its vibrations have a substantial impact, precisely positioning this wand isn’t necessary to get the clit stimulation I need.

The angled head is especially helpful during sex. The head’s angle rests between my legs while the handle lies comfortably parallel along my body. So the handle does not stick out or get in the way, preventing me from leveraging the wand as a straight handle can – this is especially beneficial in positions facing each other like Missionary or Cowgirl.

Missionary Wand Angle Easier with Angled Handle
The BMS PalmPower can stay close to my body during sex because of the angled head unlike tall, straight handles

The handle is also compact but still has enough length that you can rest the base on your bed to help support the wand in certain positions like Spooning or Doggystyle. If you plan to use your wand regularly with a partner, this is an excellent choice.

This is pretty typical for a wand this strong. If you plan to use its highest settings while others are home, you may need to play music to remain discreet. Though I typically orgasm on its lower levels which are quieter.

There is an insertable (G-spot, anal, or prostate) attachment designed specifically for this wand, but it’s a little flimsy.

However, attachments designed for the Le Wand Petite also fit the BMS PalmPower Extreme. These attachments cover a broad variety of stimulation and are high quality.

I test all my wands with the Liberator Axis and Wanda mounts for hands-free play. The BMS PalmPower Extreme’s angled head makes it my favorite to use with both (solo and during sex).

The Axis holds the wand at a slight upward angle between my legs as I lie on my stomach across the mount. I can rest in this position and orgasm solo, or my partner can enter from behind – my favorite way to use this wand! Hands-free sex using the Axis and PalmPower Extreme combo has become a go-to move for my partner and me.

Wand In Use with Axis Overlay
My typical position when using the Liberator Axis mount (demonstrated with BMS PalmPower Extreme)

In this position, the head’s upward angle positions it closer to my clit than a straight wand and applies additional pressure. I don’t need to adjust my body to maintain contact as I do with other wands. The angle sets this wand apart and makes all the difference if you love firm pressure!

It also has the best versatility in the Liberator Wanda since I can face its angled head two different directions. One direction raises the head which is excellent when I’m on my hands and knees which requires greater height. This position works really well during sex. The other direction places the head just above the fabric. This lets me straddle the mount and sit directly on it, leaning forward or backward to vary the stimulation.

Overall, the BMS PalmPower Extreme is extremely versatile with mounts, and does a great job at keeping firm, consistent contact with my body for excellent stimulation. It’s my favorite for hands-free play.
