Our Verdict

While the Le Wand Petite is a decent wand, it doesn’t have the exceptional performance necessary to justify its high price tag. 

Its small size does make it convenient and easy to use alone or during sex. And it has fair performance in pretty much every aspect. But nothing is amazing – including the vibrations. Neither especially powerful, nor especially rumbly. At this price, I expected more.

Unless you just love Le Wand’s luxury aesthetic, I don’t see much reason to buy this wand over less expensive options. If you want a small wand like the Le Wand Petite, I’d consider the cheaper Magic Wand Mini or Lovense Domi instead.

Compare Wand Vibrators​

Because the Le Wand Petite is expensive with only decent performance, other options are better for most people. If you’re considering the Le Wand Petite for its compact size and maneuverability, consider the Magic Wand Mini or Lovense Domi 2 instead – both mini wands are cheaper and better. If you like the Le Wand Petite’s luxury aesthetic, consider a luxury wand with exceptional performance like the Fun Factory Vim.

Vibrations: Power And Range


Max Power Rating

6.8

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:

7.0

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.

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 Le Wand Petite’s top vibration strength is below half the power of my strongest wands. It’s still enough for me to orgasm with. But its overall strength is closer to my non-wand vibrators, like the Lelo Mona, than it is to my large wands.

This isn’t necessarily bad – many people will be happy with this level of power. I rarely use the upper settings on my strongest wands anyway. But for the price of the Le Wand Petite, I’d expect more power.

For example, the Magic Wand Mini has a touch more vibration power, and is around $50 cheaper. And Magic Wand is the most respected brand for wand vibrators.

Le Wand Petite with Stronger Wands
Less expensive wands that can achieve higher power than the Le Wand Petite (far left). Alternatives left to right: Magic Wand Mini, BMS PalmPower Extreme, and Magic Wand Plus

Or if you’re looking for immense power, the BMS PalmPower Extreme and Magic Wand Plus are twice as strong as the Le Wand Petite – and each is less expensive. 

Something I like about the Le Wand Petite is that it offers both soft, lower levels and stronger, upper levels with small increments in between. Its low levels are comfortably gentle, and there are 10 intensity levels before you reach its maximum power. So you can enjoy light stimulation when you need softer vibrations and gradually increase strength.   

But overall, the vibration power and range is simply mediocre for how expensive the wand is. This has been my experience with Le Wand’s products generally. I also tested the Le Wand Baton and Le Wand Grand bullet vibrators, and found them to be underpowered for their price too.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

6.6

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.

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:

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):

When we rate wands, we award higher scores to those with rumbly (low-frequency) vibrations and lower scores to those with buzzy (high-frequency) vibrations. But there are plenty of people who enjoy buzzy vibrations from time to time. Including me! So consider your own preferences during this discussion.

The Le Wand Petite starts out extremely rumbly on its lowest powers. But since these levels are pretty soft, most people will only use them briefly. And as the power increases, it quickly becomes less rumbly. 

All the power levels with substantial power are in the neutral range – neither rumbly nor buzzy.

This may work well for you – I personally enjoy neutral vibrations too. However, even if you like vibrations in this part of the spectrum there are better options available.

Neutral FemmeFunn and BMS PalmPower Extreme vs Extremely Rumbly Lovense Domi and Dame Com
Stronger neutral-feeling wands, the FemmeFunn Ultra Wand (aqua) and BMS PalmPower Extreme (pink. And more rumbly-feeling wands, the Lovense Domi (black) and Dame Com (purple).

The FemmeFunn Ultra Wand is a cheaper option with moderately rumbly to neutral vibrations and stronger power. Or the BMS PalmPower Extreme has rumbly lower power levels, neutral high power levels, and substantially more vibration strength.

If you prefer those deep, rumbly vibrations, consider the Lovense Domi 2 if you like high power, or the Dame Com if you enjoy moderate strength.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

8.8

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:

No Rating

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 .

The Le Wand Petite is quite comfortable and easy to use. I have no complaints about the Le Wand Petite in this area. 

The head is a little firmer than I usually prefer, but its smaller size means I can comfortably fit and press it into tighter spaces. And it’s pretty easy to leverage for nice, firm pressure. 

The buttons are easy to press and provide all the necessary functionality for a positive experience. There are separate buttons to increase and decrease power. So you don’t need to cycle through power levels. And a third button controls pattern selection. 

But there are many wands that are just as comfortable and easy to use while costing less. So if this is important to you, check out some of the other wands that score an 8 or higher.

The Le Wand Petite is also enjoyable during sex. 

The smaller handle and head take up minimal space and don’t get in the way. It’s easy to fit the Le Wand Petite between your bodies.

However, since the head is more firm I find it occasionally bumps uncomfortably into my pubic bone in positions where my partner and I are facing each other – like Missionary and Cowgirl.

So I prefer it in positions from behind like Spooning or Doggystyle where this is not an issue.

The Magic Wand Mini is similar in size to the Le Wand Petite, but it has a squishier head that I find more comfortable. I prefer it during sex over the Le Wand Petite. Or if you want an even smaller head for those extra-tight spaces, the Lovense Domi is excellent!

Either option is better during sex than the Le Wand Petite at a lower cost, so I don’t see a compelling reason to consider the Petite during partnered sex.

When we tested the Le Wand Petite’s decibel levels, it measured slightly louder than other wands with comparable power. 

In practical use, I can use the mid and lower power levels without my partner hearing from the other side of a closed bedroom door. But he can hear the upper levels. So if you’re trying to avoid being overheard, sticking to lower powers will help. Turning on a fan or music in the bedroom also masked the sound of the Le Wand Petite.

If you want something more discreet, there are several quieter wand vibrators with comparable or greater power. Some of my favorites are the Viben Sultry or Magic Wand Mini.

The Lovense Domi’s attachments also fit the Le Wand Petite – this adds the option for penis stimulation.

But keep in mind, the Le Wand Petite’s attachments also fit other mid-sized wands like the Magic Wand Mini. So you can still consider other wands if you want to use the Petite’s attachments.

I test my wand vibrators with Liberator’s wand mounts: the Axis and Wanda. These hold your wand for you so you can enjoy hands-free stimulation.

The Le Wand Petite gives excellent clit stimulation when placed in the Liberator Wanda mount. I find mid-sized wands like the Le Wand Petite rest at the best height in this mount. It’s easy to straddle the mount and keep the Petite in good contact with my clit. And I can easily lean forward to create more space for penetration while keeping the Petite on my clit. 

The Le Wand Petite works decently with the Liberator Axis, but it takes some extra effort to get quality contact and pressure from the wand. With the Axis, it’s easiest to lie on your stomach over the top of the mount. It holds the wand angled out to the side at a slight upward angle between your legs. 

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

I find angled or curved wands are best with the Axis because it places the head of the wand closer to where your clit is naturally positioned. Since the Le Wand Petite has a straight handle, it’s not quite as effortless as wands like the BMS PalmPower Extreme or Dame Com (two of my favorite wands to use with mounts).
