What Sets Hitachi Magic Wands Apart from Other Wand Vibrators
There are many magic wand vibrators on the market today, but the Hitachi Magic Wand is the original inspiration!
- Invented back in 1968, this device was originally marketed as a massager, but thanks to sex advocate Betty Dodson, quickly became known as a Hitachi vibrator.
- Referenced often in pop culture, the Hitachi wand has an iconic look that nearly everyone can recognize.
- Of course, it’s known for more than its looks: the Magic Wand toys are all capable of running at speeds of up to 6,000 RPMs.
- Another fun fact? These powerful wand massager devices are also listed as medical devices, according to the FDA!
Corded vs Rechargeable
If you’re looking for a powerful wand massager then Hitachi has four models for you to choose from that are split into two categories: corded and rechargeable.
The corded models (Original and Plus) offer 6-6.3k RPMs, require a wall outlet to use, and both include a 6-ft. wall outlet that should give you enough room to work with. Since they don’t have an internal battery, you can expect to enjoy years of use from these models!
For rechargeable models, you can choose between the Mini and the Rechargeable, the latter of which is a larger model. Offering up to 2.5 and 3 hours of battery life on a charge, these models combine power with portability, but—since they rely on an internal battery—likely won’t outlast their corded alternatives.
Special Warning: Very Powerful!
Some people will be satisfied with the up-to-6,300 RPMs that the Hitachi wand can provide. However, many women actually find this powerful wand massager to be a little too powerful. If you’re the type of gal who’s happy using a lightweight bullet vibrator then the Hitachi might be overwhelming, especially on the higher speeds. Don’t believe us? Well then, we’d invite you to read out tester’s review of the Magic Wand Rechargeable.
What is a Hitachi Magic Wand?
A Hitachi Magic Wand is a vibrator that has a long, cylindrical handle and a large, rounded head. Designed to produce powerful vibrations, the Hitachi Magic Wands flexible head and long-lasting power has become a staple in the sex toy world.

The 4 Best hitachi magic wands in Test
Magic Wand Rechargeable
The Magic Wand Rechargeable is a cordless version of the Magic Wand Original, with a few tweaks to the design. It features four levels of intensity, four patterns, and sports a comfortable silicone head.
No need to worry about power, either. It may not be mains-powered, but still delivers a bone shaking 6,300 RPM of pure vibrating pleasure!
The cordless model adds the convenience of a plug-and-play feature – if you forgot to put it on charge last time, you can turn it into a corded model, and it’ll work right away.
This is by the best Hitachi Magic Wand for anyone who wants the full power without the restriction of being tethered to a plug!
And it is full power! The four intensities range from 2,700 – 6300 rpm so this toy is one for those who crave intesne broad stimulation. For that reason, I also wouldn’t recommend this as a beginner’s toy! All this power makes it pretty loud as well!
Our tester, a seasoned sex toy expert, found the Magic Wand Rechargeable too powerful for their liking, so it’s also just a matter of taste.
I really love the plug and play option, so if you do forget to charge your toy, you can still use it while plugged in!
Magic Wand Original Plug-In Vibrator
All hail the OG of vibrators! The Magic Wand Original helped revolutionise pleasure and normalise vibrators! And you can still experience it in its original form!
The Original Magic Wand has two powerful speeds to choose from — strong or extra strong, 5,000 or 6,000 rpm to be precise! Unlike the newer models which have buttons, the original has a flick switch to change the power settings.
This is a corded vibrator but with a 6 ft cord, you’ve got plenty of freedom!
While the Magic Wand Original is an icon in every sense, I don’t think this is the best Hitachi Magic Wand you can buy! Unless you have your heart set on the owning the original design, the Magic Wand Rechargeable is going to be a better option for a few reasons.
First of all, the head of the Original is vinyl which is not only porous, but it can also contain harmful plasticizers, whereas the Rechargeable model uses silicone, which is a body-safe option!
Next, the Original only has two power levels, while the Rechargeable has 4 intensities and 4 patterns to play with.
Lastly, the Original has to be plugged in to use, but the Rechargeable can be used with or without mains power!
Magic Wand Plus Extra Powerful Plug-In Vibrator
The Magic Wand Plus provides super intense vibrations of up to 6300 rpm wherever you choose to use it! It also has four speed settings to choose from, which is a step up from the Original’s two settings.
Never worry about charging again with this mains-powered toy that’s always ready to go when you are. The 6 feet long cord ensures you can enjoy the vibrations no matter where you are and is removable for easy storage.
Plus, the head is made of body-safe silicone and has a super-flexible neck for targeted control.
The Magic Wand Plus is the middle ground between the previous corded Original and the Rechargeable. It has four speeds, but it’s mains-powered. It’s silicone, but there are no patterns. It’s about as expensive as the Magic Wand Rechargeable, but it does less.
If you are looking specifically for a corded Magic Wand, I would recommend this over the Original. However, I would still the Magic Wand Rechargeable is the best Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator overall.
Magic Wand Mini
All the pleasure and power of the Magic Wand Original, just in a compact model!
The Magic Wand Mini measures in at a very manageable 9.6 inches, making easier to manoeuvre and much more travel friendly!
The soft silicone head sits on a flexible neck to help you get all the right angles.
Plus, this rechargeable wand vibrator boasts up to 2.5 hours in battery life, so you can get plenty use between charges!
If you want a taste of the Hitachi magic but struggle with the weight and size of a full-sized magic wand, then the Magic Wand Mini is a great alternative! The smaller size also makes it a little easier to position and manoeuvre during partnered sex.
Although the Magic Wand Mini is said to have the same vibratory power as the original (6000 rpm), our tester was a little underwhelmed with the vibration power. However, if you enjoy more moderate or gentle stimulation, this might suit you better.
Another thing to bear in mind, is that some users were disappointed they couldn’t get wand attachments to fit the smaller head size. If you love attachments, you are better off going for a full sized wand.
