Our Verdict

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 (Large) is the most rumbly wand I’ve ever tried! The vibrations are so extremely deep and low-frequency that they feel drastically different from any other wand. The vibrations travel deeper and affect an exceptionally broad area.

It has a wonderful power range from soft and gentle to moderately powerful, with gradual steps from one strength to the next. It packs more power than all my non-wand vibrators. Though it’s not as extreme as other full-sized wands like the Magic Wand Plus or Doxy Die Cast. 

For a full-sized wand, its fairly lightweight making it reasonably comfortable and easy to use.

Overall, it has good performance across the board. But whether you’ll enjoy those extremely rumbly, unique vibrations is largely a personal preference – and you’re sure to have a strong opinion either way. Some people will love it, and others will actually prefer something less rumbly. 

Because this wand feels so different from others, I recommend buying through Lovehoney for their happiness guarantee. They’ll let you return a toy for a refund if you don’t end up enjoying it.

Compare Wand Vibrators

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 Large is an excellent wand with exceptional rumbliness and generally great performance – it’s much better than the Medium version. It has features you expect from a luxury wand, such as a waterproof rating and separate controls to increase and decrease power. 

Fun Factory Vim with More Rumbly Lelo Wand
The Lelo Smart Wand 2 Large (left) and Fun Factory Vim (right) are two of the most rumbly wand vibrators

Whether there are better wands for you depends on your preferences. Some similarly-priced wands are more powerful, including the BMS PalmPower Extreme, the Magic Wand Rechargeable, and Fun Factory Vim, but only some people want extreme intensity. The Lelo Smart Wand’s exceptional rumbliness can also feel unusual to some, but others love it. While still highly rumbly, the Fun Factory Vim’s vibrations will feel more normal to some people because they’re not as far toward the end of the spectrum.

Vibrations: Power And Range


Max Power Rating

7.4

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:

8.1

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 Large Lelo Smart Wand 2 reaches a top strength that’s definitely stronger than my favorite non-wand vibrators. Though it’s not extreme like other full-sized wands. 

I personally prefer moderate strength – I rarely (or never) use the top settings of ultrapowerful wands like the Doxy Die Cast or Magic Wand Plus. So I’m happy with the Smart Wand’s power, but people who want immense strength may consider one of those. 

The vibrations also begin very gently (1 out of 10 vibration strength), and there are several intensity levels with tiny, gradual steps between each level. This is something Lelo usually does well – they rarely design a vibrator with large gaps between levels. So people who prefer milder stimulation or need soft levels for a warmup have plenty to enjoy before turning the power up.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

9.8

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.

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.

Frequency on Low Power:

23 Hz

(Extremely Rumbly)

Median Frequency:

34 Hz

(Extremely 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.
