Magic Wand Original vs Magic Wand Rechargeable

You asked for it time after time and probably still can’t believe it’s actually here right?  Well, believe it because the Magic Wand Rechargeable has arrived!  The makers of the Magic Wand Original, formerly know as the Hitachi Magic Wand, made this highly anticipated, Magic Wand Rechargeable for consumers who demand portable pleasure with multiple speeds & vibration patterns.  In this article,, your go to store for both these magical massagers, will provide a detailed view of the differences between the Magic Wand Rechargeable and the Magic Wand Original so you can decide which one is right for you.

Magic Wand Original

Historically, the Magic Wand Original HV260 hasn’t been around for a very long time since it was recently updated by the parent company Hitachi LTD from the previously known massager, the Hitachi Magic Wand HV-250R.  The Hitachi, known for it’s consistent white and blue look/design with it’s two speed functionality, has been featured in popular movies and TV shows because simple just works and if a well made simple product keeps it’s consistency, people will catch on and notice!  Now when you think about the Magic Wand Original, you might ask yourself why you would buy a corded massager when there are so many sophisticated massagers available on the market.  The reason why most consumers like the corded wand is because of it’s consistent power and the reliability with an electronic device which will not let them down when they demand pleasure OR pain relief.

Magic Wand Original vs Magic Wand RechargeableThe Magic Wand Original delivers major value because it performs very well for the price, in fact, it performs better than some $200+ massagers because it of it’s high quality design which was initiated in Japan and completed like most products in China.  One of the most common questions we receive is why the Magic Wand available on sites such as eBay and Amazon are much cheaper.  The truth is, there are legitimate Magic Wand’s available on these price sensitive sites but finding honest sellers is more difficult than you would believe.  Think about it this way, if you see 100 wands on a page but only 10 of them are the authentic Magic Wands, would it be difficult for you to choose the authentic Magic Wand Original from the whole 100 item list?  The answer is, unfortunately, yes.  Luckily for the Magic Wand and it’s customers, there have been Minimum Advertised Prices (MAP’s) enforced by the manufacturer to ensure that the quality and reputation of the Magic Wand is kept up.  With this said, NO MAGIC WAND which is an authentic Magic Wand Original should be advertised below this MAP.  The current map as of May 2015 for the Magic Wand Original is $59.99.  The amount is of course subject to change since it is driven differently per retailer/distributor.
