Our Verdict

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is the convenient cordless version of the plug-in Magic Wand Plus. I personally prefer the Rechargeable, and it’s one of my favorite wands. Its excellent performance across the board makes it a generally good fit for most people.

It has an excellent power range with some gentler and moderately strong settings while warming up and extremely powerful upper levels. Although it’s minimally less powerful than the corded version (the Plus), I can typically only use its first 3 settings. Very few people will need the slight power increase of the plug-in version. It’s also one of the most rumbly wands making the vibrations feel impactful without numbing or overstimulating.

Though more difficult to maneuver than a mini wand, it’s a comfortable full-sized wand. The side of its large head provides broad vibrations, or you can use the angled lip at the top to get more focused stimulation. Its plush silicone head is very comfortable, solo and during sex. 

With the longest battery life of any rechargeable wand, it’s exceptionally convenient, lasting over 4 hours on max power during our testing.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is a big improvement over the Magic Wand Original, which had a worse power range and a porous head that could not be sanitized. The cordless Rechargeable is more convenient than the plug-in Magic Wand Plus. The Rechargeable is a touch less powerful than the corded version, but it’s also more rumbly. Other than the slight difference in vibrations and convenience aspects, they’re very similar. 

If you don’t care about noise, the BMS PalmPower Extreme has similarly excellent performance at a slightly lower price. Or, if you care more about exceptional rumbliness than power, the pricier Fun Factory Vim is also worth considering.

Power Range Rating:

8.0

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.

Though the Magic Wand Rechargeable has about 85% of the power of its corded version, it’s still one of the strongest wands in my collection, with a top power of 7.67 out of 10. 

With four power levels, the lowest setting starts at 1.75 out of 10, providing an enjoyable warm-up without overwhelming. The second level is slightly stronger than my favorite non-wand vibrators, and the third is substantially more powerful – I usually finish on the second setting, but occasionally want the extra oomph of the third level (often over my clothes)! I can rarely use the top strength because it’s too intense for me but is excellent if you crave immense power.

Magic Wand Mini vs Rechargeable Size and Strength Difference
The Magic Wand Mini (left) is better if you want a higher concentration of powers in the lower-realm. The Magic Wand Rechargeable (right) is better if you want a wider range between power jumps

Together, these four settings provide a wide range to enjoy. If you typically prefer gentle stimulation, you might consider the Magic Wand Mini instead. But the Rechargeable is best for those who enjoy moderate to extreme strength.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

8.4

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 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):

We rate wands with rumbly vibrations higher than those with buzzy vibrations since most people prefer rumbliness. The Magic Wand Rechargeable is one of the most rumbly wands I’ve tested. A few wands are more rumbly, but may underperform in other aspects.

Three of its four power levels are in the rumbly range, with the first two feeling extremely rumbly! I love these vibrations because they travel deeper into my body without being overwhelming or ticklish, unlike buzzy ones. 

Since I typically only use the first three power levels, most of my experiences with the Magic Wand Rechargeable are rumbly. Though if you expect you’ll need the extreme power of the fourth level, the vibrations start to feel more neutral.

Personally, I don’t mind an occasional neutral-feeling vibration. And overall, this wand delivers high-quality rumbly vibrations at an impressive strength. If exceptional rumbliness is a top priority, consider the Fun Factory Vim. It’s also excellent across-the-board, slightly less powerful, but much more rumbly.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

8.0

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 Rechargeable is a larger wand, so it takes a bit more effort to maneuver or leverage than smaller, lighter toys. But overall, it’s comfortable and easy to use. 

The plush silicone head is softer than other wands, making it comfortable when pressed firmly against your body. And the neck is flexible, but solid so I can apply considerable pressure without worry. The wide head is great for broad, diffuse pressure. And rather than the round head many wands have, this wand’s head is cylindrical, creating a lip at the top that I can use for more direct pressure and focused stimulation.

Magic Wand Rechargeable Plush Head Allows Broad or Focused Stimulation
The Magic Wand Rechargeable head – great for diffuse stimulation using the side of the head, and focused stimulation using the top edges

Vibrations do transfer minimally through the handle, primarily on lower power levels. But since the vibrations are rumbly, I don’t find it uncomfortable or distracting as I do with buzzy wands like the Doxy 3R.

The Rechargeable’s controls differ from the Magic Wand Plus’s, since the cordless version offers vibration patterns. One button cycles through four steady power levels, and a separate button cycles through its four patterns. While I prefer a setup with separate buttons to increase and decrease power, it’s not a big deal since there are only 4 power levels to cycle through. 

The button placement is good – I don’t accidentally press the buttons. And it’s easy to feel them, so I can make adjustments without looking or disrupting the stimulation.

And since this wand is rechargeable, you won’t have to deal with cords getting in the way – part of why I use it more than the Magic Wand Plus.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is my favorite full-sized wand to use during sex, and I enjoy it in a wide range of positions. 

It’s a long wand with a large head, and it’s on the heavier side – all traits you don’t expect to make a great wand for sex. But the rumbly, powerful vibrations and plush, cylindrical head make it work very well.

With my weaker vibrators, I spend more time precisely positioning the toy and leveraging it to get the pressure just right. But since the Magic Wand Rechargeable is extremely powerful and rumbly, I don’t need to place the head in an exact spot with tons of pressure, so its large head isn’t an issue. Its length also makes it easier to use in positions like Doggystyle where I can rest the base against the bed so my arm doesn’t get tired.

The silicone head’s plushness keeps it comfortable, even in movement-heavy positions like Cowgirl. Whereas firm wands like the Satisfyer Wand-er Woman press uncomfortably into my pubic bone in this position.

The cylindrical head’s lip provides a smaller surface to get the more focused stimulation you could with a small wand too. This lip also fits into tight spaces where a large wand’s full head doesn’t. And in more open positions like Spooning, I can use the flat surface for diffuse, broad stimulation.

Being cordless, you can move around more freely with the Magic Wand Rechargeable too.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable has lower noise levels compared to most other wands with similar power. For many comparable wands, I can only use the first setting without the vibrations becoming audible.

During our tests, my partner couldn’t hear the first two levels from behind a closed bedroom door. And that second power is typically where I finish. Many will be able to orgasm on these discreet levels. The two extremely powerful top settings were audible in our quiet house, but when I turned on a box fan or played music, my partner couldn’t hear the wand anymore, even on high power.

It’s a good option if you want strong power and need to remain discreet.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

I’ve tested the Magic Wand Rechargeable with both the Liberator Axis and Wanda mounts for hands-free play, and it performs well with each.

The Axis positions the wand at a slight upward angle from horizontal. When lying on your stomach on the Axis, the side of the wand’s head rests on your clit. 

The wand’s tall, broad head provides plenty of surface area for easy clitoral contact without needing to be deliberate about positioning my body as I do with small wands. The plush texture of the head makes it comfortable to press against, and the full-sized handle keeps it secured in the mount.

With the Wanda mount, the Magic Wand Rechargeable is held upright at a slight tilt. Shorter wands enable you to fully lower your weight onto the mount and rock back and forth to vary stimulation. But due to its full-sized design, this wand’s head sits too high for that. 

Instead, it’s best to rest on your hands and knees. In this Doggystyle position, the wand’s head aligns well with my clit. Or you can straddle the mount on your knees, but you’ll need to keep your body elevated. In either position, the Magic Wand Rechargeable’s broad, plush head maintains good contact with my clit and provides excellent stimulation.
