Our Verdict

The Magic Wand Plus is the second most powerful wand I own and the strongest under $100. Only the Doxy Die Cast has more power, but its vibrations are buzzier.

The Magic Wand Plus has excellent performance in nearly every area.

It’s very high quality, has a great power range from soft to extreme, and has lovely, rumbly vibrations. Only its highest setting becomes buzzy (and no wand I’ve tested remains rumbly at that strength). Its body-safe silicone head is squishier and more comfortable than other brands’. And especially for a full-sized wand, it’s easy to use during sex.

It only underperforms in noise – but no wand this powerful is quiet. And the Plus is still inaudible from the other side of a closed door on high power if you turn on a box fan or play some music. 

At such a reasonable price, this is a great option for anyone who wants a comfortable, quality wand with an excellent power range.

The Magic Wand Plus is reasonably priced with excellent performance for the cost – especially for those who value power. The Plus is an improvement on the Magic Wand Original, with a better power range and a body-safe silicone head. It’s more powerful than the cordless Magic Wand Rechargeable, but it’s less convenient and a bit less rumbly.

Power Range Rating:

8.5

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 Magic Wand Plus is my second-most powerful wand, reaching a 9 out of 10 on its top level. Only the Doxy Die Cast reaches a higher strength than the Magic Wand Plus. But the Doxy is more than double the cost, and it’s buzzier.

Priced under $100, the Magic Wand Plus is the most budget-friendly option for people who want immense power. 

Its 4 power levels also provide a broad range of intensities. It has softer levels as a warmup or for people who don’t need extreme strength. I rate the lowest power at 1.9 out of 10 and the second level at 6.1 out of 10. 

Personally, I rarely use the third or fourth settings because the first two are enough for me – I can orgasm from either level. I think many people will be happy with just these. And if you venture into the upper settings, you may want to try them over your clothes – they are intense! Even on the second power, I often use the Magic Wand Plus over my underwear.

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.

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):

Because most people prefer rumbly wands, we rate these higher than buzzy wands.

The Magic Wand Plus’s first two power levels are extremely rumbly. These low-frequency vibrations feel deep and impactful. And since the wand is so powerful, many people will primarily use these lower two levels. 

Power level 2 packs excellent strength, while remaining deep and low-frequency. This rumbly quality of the vibrations prevents them from feeling overwhelming, ticklish, or numbing. That second setting is my favorite, and it’s the one I orgasm with most frequently.

The third level feels neutral – neither rumbly nor buzzy. 

BMS PalmPower Extreme vs Magic Wand Plus - Vibration Power vs Frequency Graph

Only the highest power (9.0 out of 10) begins to feel buzzy. No wand I’ve tested yet has remained rumbly when its power increases beyond 8.0 out of 10. The BMS PalmPower Extreme is the only wand with comparable strength that stays in the neutral range on its top power – but the difference is minimal

Most people will be happy with the Magic Wand Plus’s balance between extreme strength and rumbliness.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

8.2

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:

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 Magic Wand Plus is a great fit for those who want a comfortable full-sized wand. It has a wide, tall head, which diffuses the intense power comfortably over a broad area.

Full-sized wands like the Magic Wand Plus are more difficult to maneuver quickly or fit into tight spaces than compact wands like the Lovense Domi or Magic Wand Mini. But because this wand has such powerful, deep vibrations I don’t need to position it with precision. The Magic Wand Plus’s rumbly vibes impact the entire vicinity around the head!

I also love how plush the head is! 

It’s firm enough that I can still apply substantial pressure, but soft enough that it’s completely comfortable against my body. It doesn’t bump uncomfortably into my pubic bone as really firm wands like the Satisfyer Wand-er Woman do.

When the Magic Wand Plus is on its lowest power, you can feel the vibrations in your hands. But they’re so rumbly that it doesn’t feel uncomfortable or distracting. And oddly, you feel them less in your hands as you increase power.

The Magic Wand Plus is not waterproof, so it’s best to wash down the head with a warm, soapy cloth. But since there are no tricky grooves on the head, it’s still easy to clean.

The silicone buttons are comfortable and easy to press without moving my hands. But most importantly, there are separate buttons to increase or decrease the power. Some wands make you cycle through intensity levels with a single button. When toys have this much power, I like to be able to step back down easily.

The Magic Wand Plus is one of my favorite full-sized wands to use during sex – though I also enjoy the cordless convenience of the (slightly less powerful) Magic Wand Rechargeable.

I particularly enjoy the Plus in the spooning position and a modified missionary position (lying on my back with my partner kneeling).

The full length of the wand has the space it needs for me to angle and leverage the handle in these positions – I like to really push my vibes deeper (which is why I need a sturdy wand). And the plush head maintains comfortable, easy, consistent contact with my clit.

I move a lot more in Cowgirl, so I notice the weight and bulk of the Magic Wand Plus more in this position. The size is a little harder to control with more movement (especially compared to small wands like the MW Mini or Lovense Domi), but it’s still manageable. Plus, the sheer strength the Magic Wand Plus cranks out means you don’t need to position the wand in a precise spot to feel its effects. 

Size Comparison of Magic Wand Mini Plus and Lovense Domi
The Magic Wand Plus (middle) compared to smaller, easier to control wands like the Magic Wand Mini (left) or Lovense Domi (right)

Doggystyle is the trickiest position for the Magic Wand Plus because you’re working against gravity to hold the wand up between your legs. But I’ve found that I can place the base of the handle on the bed to support some of the weight and give my arm a rest (though this works even better with the Rechargeable since the base doesn’t have a cord in the way). 

Overall, it’s a great option during sex – especially for those who want the immense power of a full-sized wand.

To test a wand’s discretion, I use the wand in our bedroom while my partner stands directly on the other side of the door to see whether he can hear it. 

The Magic Wand Plus is not audible behind a closed door on its lowest power level. But with no other sounds in our house, he can hear the top three settings. In fact, all three of my strongest wands are only inaudible at their low levels. 

We also test whether turning on a box fan or music in the bedroom drowns out each wand’s noise. Either option successfully masked all the Magic Wand Plus’s power levels.

So if you have housemates, you’ll want to grab a box fan or turn up some jams.

I test my wands with the Liberator Axis and Wanda mounts for hands-free stimulation.

The Magic Wand Plus is excellent in the Axis mount. I insert the wand and lie on my stomach over the top of the wedge. The Axis holds the wand out at a slight upward angle between my legs. I can just rest lying on the mount and enjoy a hands-free orgasm. Or my partner can easily enter from behind.

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

When placed in the Axis, the Magic Wand Plus’s tall, broad head maintains much better contact and pressure with my clit than narrower wands. And the squishy texture keeps the wand comfy – the extra comfort is helpful since you don’t have as fine-tuned control over positioning the head when using it hands-free. And since the Plus’s vibrations are extremely powerful, you get excellent clit stimulation without needing to position the wand in a precise spot.

The Wanda holds the Magic Wand Plus in a nearly upright position. You can rest on your elbows and knees (in a sort of Doggystyle position) and get hands-free stimulation solo or during sex.

Again, the wide, plush head provides a comfortable, broad surface to lean your weight on. And with taller wands like this, you don’t have to spread your legs as wide to keep your clit in contact with the wand’s head. So it’s comfortable to hold this position longer.

Some shorter wands also allow you to straddle and sit on the mount, leaning backward or forward into the vibrations for stimulation. The Magic Wand Plus is too tall to straddle like this, but it performs really well in the Doggystyle position.

You can also remove the Magic Wand Plus’s cord which makes storing it easier – this is the only plug-in wand I have with this feature. As someone who loves organization, I find this really convenient.
