Think you’re seeing double?
Vibratex is back with a new Magic Wand. The Magic Wand Plus (the bottom of the two in the picture above) is the newest wand by Vibratex, makers of the infamous/famous Magic Wand.
The Magic Wand Original hit the shelves decades ago (named back then as the Hitachi), and it’s still in production today. I reviewed the original a few years ago. While remarkably strong and inexpensive (around $60), the head is porous, making it not quite ideal.
Then a couple of years ago, I tried the Magic Wand Rechargeable, which boasted the same amount of power as the original, but with a silicone head and, of course, it was rechargeable. No mains power necessary.
And now step 3 in my Magic Wand journey: the Magic Wand Plus.
Design-wise, not much is new compared to the Magic Wand Rechargeable. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, and all that…
The Magic Wand Plus is in the same ivory plastic-cased body, about a foot in length. There’s a semi-flexible blue neck that leads to the white silicone-coated head. Like the other Magic Wands, this head isn’t removable. The silicone head is matte, broad, and just a pinch squishy.
You have 3 blue buttons: On/Off, (+), and (–).
At the tippy base of the Magic Wand Plus, there’s a small port for the cable. The 6-foot length cord plugs neatly into this slot, and locks in (to remove, press the nearby white square button; it’ll release the cord). The cord is removable, for easy storage/losing.

How to Use the Magic Wand Plus
- To use the Magic Wand Plus, you must plug it into a wall outlet using the included cord.
- Press the On/Off button once. The Magic Wand Plus will power on at the lowest level.
- Press the (+) button to increase strength. There are 4 increasingly strong steady states.
- Press the (–) button if you’d like to decrease strength.
- Apply it to your body. Though designed for clitoral use, this can be used against the penis, etc. Just don’t try to insert this into anything – it’s designed for external use only.
- Press the On/Off button to switch it off.
(If you do want to turn this into an insertable toy, you can purchase silicone head attachments, like this or this or this).
The Magic Wand Plus is packaged like the Magic Wand Rechargeable was – clean, simple, clinically basic packaging. This product looks in place in a pharmacy, and I’m fine with that. Just don’t expect the fancy packaging you’d get from the O-Wand or the Doxy Die Cast Wand.
Inside the box, the Magic Wand Plus is in a plastic sleeve. All in all, you receive the wand itself, the cord, and some instructions.
Material and Care
The Magic Wand Plus‘ head is made from silicone, making it bodysafe, non-porous and non-toxic. The Magic Wand Plus is NOT waterproof. Keep it away from water.
Before cleaning, make sure it’s unplugged. Vibratex recommends cleaning the wand head with a mild silicone-safe cleanser (spray the cleanser on a cloth, and use the cloth to wipe down the head). A cleanser like this or this should do.
If you want to add a drop of lubricant, go for a good quality water-based lubricant like my favourite Sliquid H2O.
My Experience with the Magic Wand Plus
When I saw that a new Magic Wand was coming out, I immediately wanted to try it. Magic Wand products are famous for their sheer, magnificent power. And the Magic Wand Rechargeable was a huge upgrade from the Original in terms of bodysafe materials and convenience.
But, the rechargeable version was also a lot more pricey. The Magic Wand Rechargeable is a whopping $124 USD, which (while not as pricey as luxury wand vibrators), is hard to swallow — especially if you were expecting the Original’s nice $60 price tag.
So in the mix now comes the Magic Wand Plus. The cord is back, the rechargeable feature and patterns are out. But we still have the silicone head, and 4 deliciously strong strengths.
Yep, still mega strong. The Magic Wand Plus’ strengths start with “attention-grabbing” and end with “explosion.” Orgasms with this are pretty quick and fierce. I usually need pinpoint stimulation, but I just use the square-ish corners of the head, and they serve me just fine. Unless you need ultra pin-point stimulation, or you need very faint/weak vibrations, it’s hard to go wrong with this one.
If you know you really prefer pinpoint stimulation, stay away (from this and all other wands). In that case, I’d recommend the We-Vibe Tango or the FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet.
I turned on both the Magic Wand Plus and the Magic Wand Rechargeable and compared them. The Magic Wand Plus feels as strong as the Rechargeable at its top speed, but it’s definitely a pinch noisier.
So compared to the $124 Magic Wand Rechargeable, the Magic Wand Plus doesn’t have a rechargeable battery and it’s a bit noisier, but it’s just as strong and it’s a hella lot cheaper. At $79 USD, it’s a lot closer to the Original’s price point, and a lot more people will consider it.
Overall thoughts from my Magic Wand Plus review
I encourage you to seriously consider this model if you’re in the market for a wand. It’s truly very strong, it’s got some good rumble to it, and it’s bodysafe. It’s cheaper than the Magic Wand Rechargeable, and while it won’t come with features like being cordless or having patterns, I’m able to live without them.
To phrase it in another way: I see the Magic Wand Plus as the new standard version of the Magic Wand (AKA, something that should be in every person’s bedside table). If you want the extra convenience features, opt for the more pricey Magic Wand Rechargeable, but for most power-queen wand lovers, I think this is the one for you.
To buy the Magic Wand Plus, head on over to Peepshow Toys. Why do I recommend them? They ship internationally, only carry body-safe products, and you can get a 10% discount off your whole purchase with coupon code RUBY. That brings the Magic Wand Plus down to $71.96 USD, and includes free USA shipping.
