Real vs Fake Magic Wand Rechargeable

How to Identify Real vs Fake Magic Wand Rechargeable HV270 Massagers

We have been on a quest for a long time to show the differences between the real Magic Wand Rechargeable, model HV270, and a replica version purchased from marketplace websites such as Amazon, eBay and others.  For the record, marketplace websites have no immediate part in this comparison as they are merely the platform which allows sellers worldwide to participate in commerce.  We will also say that most of these marketplace websites do appear to have processes in place to reduce the number of replicas being sold.  This is done by verifying seller data, seller history and other data.  The information presented below is an opinion of ours on what separates a real vs fake Magic Wand Rechargeable.  For full disclosure, we only sell authentic Magic Wand Massagers and if you want to save a TON of time by purchasing an authentic device without doing extensive research, you can buy one here.

If the internet makes you skeptical and you need to do some digging around on your own, we understand and have created this in depth review for fine folks such as yourself.  To break down the intent of this review, we purchased a replica Magic Wand Rechargeable massager from a few of these aforementioned marketplaces to evaluate the differences of a real vs fake Magic Wand Rechargeable in great depth.  We hope customers will appreciate this education and use this knowledge to make an informed decision.

Real vs Fake Magic Wand Rechargeable Water Power Test

The power of the Magic Wand’s have always been one of the best qualities of these devices.  More power = More Fun in most scenarios.  To start off our review, we evaluate the differences between the power of a Fake Magic Wand Rechargeable versus a Real Magic Wand Rechargeable with a simple water test.  The idea of this test is simple because we partially emerge the head of these devices into the bowl of water and go through all 4 speeds to show viewers which one makes a larger splash.  Larger splash = More Power.  More Power = More Fun.  Simple right?

The first video below will show the fake magic wand cycling through the 4 speeds.  You will notice that the device is making gentle ripples in the water on speed 1 and gentle bubbling at speed 4.  This shows how there is no power in the head of the device which means there will be no power when you use it as a massager. 🙁

This second video below will show the real magic wand cordless massager cycling through the 4 speeds as well.  You will notice something amazing right away.  Did you catch it?  Notice how speed 1 of the real massager is already stronger than speed 4 of the replica!  Also, speed 4 on the authentic device is violently pushing water out of the bowl which means the vibration power is much more intense then the replica.  Remember, More Power = More Fun.

Let us jump right into the pictorial section of the review which will visually show the differences related to these devices.  To make it easy, we have placed the word “REAL” or “FAKE” appropriately by each image to assist you in identifying which one you have or want to know about.

As you can see on the back section of the fake massager below, there isn’t any information such as the barcode or other pertinent information often found on authentic devices.  It is worth while also noting that the fake box refers to the massager as “Wand Massager” while the real version refers to the device as the Magic Wand® Rechargeable.

Please note the additional blank section of the box in the image below.  This is quick give away for any replica product.  When the manufacturer doesn’t put in the time to label the product well, how do you think they will manufacture it?

Magic Wand Rechargeable

As you can tell on the fake massager box below, there are multiple colors listed on the box portraying the image that the Magic Wand Rechargeable comes in different colors.  This is absolutely not true.  The Magic Wand Rechargeable, model HV270, only comes in one color scheme which is the classic blue and white design.

Magic Wand Rechargeable

Jumping right into the internal packaging section of our review, you can see that the real Magic Wand Rechargeable has excellent packing materials and fully protects the device from bumps and bangs due to the shipping process.  Also, the charging adapter has its own box and is protected from the rest of the unit.  Comparing this packing process to the fake version of the Magic Wand Rechargeable, you can see how the replica manufacturer just threw in the massager, charger and manual in a bag and stuck it in the box with no internal packaging to protect the device against bumps and bangs.  No bueno!

Magic Wand Rechargeable

Take a look at the owners manual of the real vs fake Magic Wand Rechargeable below.  You can see how much effort and time went into the real device manual compared to the replica wand massager manual.  Not to mention, the real magic wand rechargeable comes with a full 1-year warranty which is referenced in the owners manual in addition to the safety practices on how to use this device carefully.  It’s easy to see how one provides a book of information while the other just provides a quick summary of the features.

Starting with the fake massager first, you will find a visual demonstration below of what to look for in a fake magic wand rechargeable.  You will see that there is no logo on the massager itself labeled “Magic Wand Rechargeable”.

Now take a look at how the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable looks.  It’s impossible to tell from the picture below but the weight of this device is much heavier than a replica.  This is due to the fact that the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable uses a heavy duty motor which is housed inside the body of the massager instead of in the head of the massager.  More to come on this and the internal parts below.

Notice the metallic label on the back of the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable below?  This label will have the ETL certification and other pertinent information from the manufacturer listed.

Here is a side by side comparison of the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable versus the fake version.  You will notice how the authentic device is more of an off white color instead of a bright white color such as the replica shown below.  The buttons and head of these devices are very similar and difficult to tell apart unless you know what you are looking for.

Both of these devices will look similar at first glance.  The easiest method of telling a replica from an authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable is the weight.  We will get to the weight of the device further down to show you what a real cordless magic wand should weigh.

Notice in the picture above and below that the real Magic Wand Rechargeable doesn’t have exposed screws showing under the head of the device while the fake version does.  This is a sealed design which allows the professionals to service the Magic Wand versus anyone unscrewing it with a common screwdriver.Magic Wand Rechargeable Magic Wand Rechargeable Magic Wand Rechargeable

The length of these two devices are about the same at approximately 13 inches in length.

As mentioned above, the absolute best way to tell if a Magic Wand Rechargeable is real or not without opening it is by the weight of the device.  The authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable weighs in at 1.4 lbs.  It is heavy feeling and powerful when you turn it on compared to replica massagers which weigh less than 1.4 lbs.  The replica device we had for this review was approximately 1.05 pounds.  Keep in mind, not every replica will be exactly the same so there is a number of areas you should look for in verifying a real vs fake massager.  Mainly the areas listed in this review! 🙂

Now let’s take a look at the internal parts of a fake Magic Wand Rechargeable.  As you can see from the images below, the motor is NOT in the body of the device which is what replica manufacturers usually do to save money.  They make the head of the massager house the motor which allows them to put in a smaller, less powerful device.  This also makes it much cheaper to manufacture.  When viewing the replica images below, you will notice how there is just one small circuit board with a small battery pack and wires that lead to the head of the massager which contains the small motor.

Notice the size of the motor in the head below.  You won’t be able to see exactly how small it is in this picture below but when you compare it to the motor of the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable, the difference will be very clear.  Also, the silicone head came off this device by removing some screws and a little elbow grease.Magic Wand Rechargeable

Now let’s take a look at the internals of a real Magic Wand.  See the intricate design of the circuitry?  Look at the size of the battery inside the device (left side blow) and the size of the motor (right side above).  You can tell right away that there was some serious design and craftsmanship put into the making of this Magic Wand Rechargeable.

With this view below, you can see the giant size of the motor and start to understand why the Magic Wand massagers are known for their power and quality.

Magic Wand Rechargeable

Let’s look at a side by side comparison of the real vs fake massagers.  With the image directly below, you will see how the head of the replica massager comes off while the head of the authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable does not.  Remember, an authentic Magic Wand does not have exposed screws on the bottom of the head which doesn’t allow you to pop off the head unless you have the appropriate tools.

Magic Wand Rechargeable

Look at the difference in the battery size on the left portion of the massagers.  This means the real massager will hold an much longer charge than the fake version.Magic Wand Rechargeable Magic Wand Rechargeable

Last but not least, you can see the difference between the real vs fake magic wand adapters shown below.  The real version obviously has nothing to hide and shows all the specifics on the charging adapter unit itself including the model number, certification status, input power and more.

 IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO KEEP IN MIND:

You should NOT put your Magic Wand Rechargeable in water as it is not waterproof and should not be used in the shower, bath, pool or any other water location. You should also never open up your Magic Wand Rechargeable just to verify authenticity or to attempt to fix something that sounds broken  Doing so will void your factory manufacturers 1-year warranty and you will not be able to get a replacement should anything malfunction with the device.  As mentioned earlier, all authentic Magic Wand Rechargeable massages come with a user manual which includes details on how to use the 1-year warranty should you ever need it.  There is no pre registration process needed to use the warranty.  All you need to do is make sure you have your proof of purchase from us and you have had the device for under a year.

Chances are that if you read this whole article, you were curious and interested in getting one of these fine devices and DID NOT want to get a replica.  We hope you found this article helpful and appreciate your support in purchasing this device from us as an authorized Magic Wand Rechargeable dealer.  If you have any questions on this article and need more help, just contact us as are more than happy to help.    If you are ready to purchase a 100% real cordless magic wand, you can buy one here with free Priority Shipping in the United States.

What Makes The Hitachi Magic Wand Massager So Great?

Find Out What Makes The Hitachi Magic Wand Massager So Great

Ever heard about the Hitachi Magic Wand and why it’s a fantastic massager and an even better vibrator? We will discuss everything you need to know about the Magic Wand starting with the history of the massager, the different uses of the Magic Wand, different available versions, popular accessories and much more. As an authorized retailer, we hope this article will help you obtain the valuable information you need to make an educated decision for one of these fantastic massagers.

History Of Hitachi, LTD.

Hitachi is a Japanese multinational conglomerate which was founded in 1910 by Namihei Odaira and currently lead by Toshiaki Higashihara as of this copy in 2017.  As a traditional Japanese company who produces everything from electronics and data systems to defense systems, Hitachi happened to make a device called the Hitachi Magic wand. Hitachi introduced this item in the United States in 1968 for it’s sole purpose of being a device intended to relieve sore muscles and tension. The intention was always to be a health care device and never anything more than that.  This was until vastly popular sex educator, Betty Dodson explained the many benefits of using the Hitachi Magic Wand as a masturbation aid for women. Shortly after the introduction of the Hitachi Magic Wand and how it’s true “dual purpose” capabilities would be a hit with many consumers, people all over starting buzzing during private time.

VibratexVibratex, Inc.

Hitachi, LTD decided to stop production of this best selling device in 2013 and wanted to move in a different business direction which is why the rights of the Hitachi Magic Wand were sold to Vibratex, Inc.  Vibratex, a California based Sex Toy manufacturer and distributor, took on this  acquisition by convincing Hitachi NOT to decommission this device but instead continue making it under a different name.  The new name of the Hitachi Magic Wand was born and it was now called the Magic Wand Original.

How did the Magic Wand Massager get so popular?

After being introduced in the market as a dual purpose massager, the Magic Wand got notoriety from a number of different publications which includes but is not limited to Cosmopolitan, Engadget and Time Magazine. The Hitachi Magic Wand was also shown on TV within the Sex in the City series, Louis CK show and other notable areas of entertainment.  Bottom line, the word was out that the must have vibrator was the official Magic Wand.  After all, it wasn’t called the Cadillac or Rolls Royce of Vibrators for no reason!

So what exactly is a dual purpose massager?

Some may get confused by the term “dual purpose” since the main purpose of a handheld massaging device is to alleviate minor aches and pains with the use of vibrations throughout the entire body.  This means feet, calves, thighs, lower back, upper back, arms and neck areas are the main focus points.  However, the Hitachi Magic Wand is an excellent massager but an even better masturbation device!  This is why the Magic Wand is labeled as the perfect multi use, dual purpose device every household should have.

Hitachi Magic WandDo more men or women use the Magic Wand?

For almost 40 years now, the Magic Wand has been used by men and women all over the world due to it’s unique design and powerful strength. Used more by women due to its popularity of being a clitoral stimulating vibrator, the Magic Wand is and has become the “go to” vibrator for all women who masturbate with a toy.  Many men also state that ejaculation is achieved very quickly with the Magic Wand compared to conventional masturbation without a sex toy.

Magic Wand Versions

Okay so by now, you should have a pretty good idea of what the Magic Wand is and what it could do for you.  Now it’s time to discuss some options!  The Magic Wand is currently produced in two versions.  There is a corded Magic Wand Original, model HV260 and the Cordless Magic Wand Rechargeable, model HV270.  Let us discuss the differences between these models to help you decide which one is more appropriate for you:

Cord length: 6 foot

The Magic Wand Original is the closest to the original iconic Hitachi Magic Wand.  The look, weight and feel of the Magic Wand Original is very much the same consistent device consumers have been used to for 40 years.  Made to look visually the same as the HV250R with it’s classic white & blue design, the HV260 is the lowest priced massager which is both powerful and affordable thanks to it’s high quality Japanese styling and design.

 

Hitachi Magic WandMagic Wand Rechargeable HV270

Magic Wand Attachments & Accessories

Some of the most interesting and fun accessories that you can use with the Magic Wand Original or Magic Wand Rechargeable are custom made Magic Wand Attachments.  Wand Attachments are unique color, material and shaped accessories that attach on top of the  Hitachi Magic Wand.  All the attachments we sell on MagicWandMassager.com fit both the HV260 and HV270 head since both of these massagers use the same 2.5 inch diameter bulb/head.  Let us provide some examples of the different attachments made for men and women:

Hitachi Magic WandWhere is the Authentic Hitachi Magic Wand Sold?

There are a number of sales channels that sell the Magic Wand.  Unfortunately, there has been trouble in the past with replica massagers being sold on different websites which are not authorized to sell the real Magic Wand.  Obtaining a real Hitachi Magic Wand can be a little more challenging than one would want to deal with.  There are price sensitive websites that list the Magic Wand for half the price of what authorized distributors are allowed to sell the Magic Wand for.  Unfortunately, this has created an environment for customers who want to get the best deal on a Magic Wand to try out the cheaper versions and quickly realize that the massager they bought for half price is a faulty, dangerous replica of the authentic magic wand.

MagicWandMassager.com sells the authentic Magic Wand Original and Magic Wand Rechargeable massagers with guaranteed authenticity and a full 1 year manufacturers warranty.  Take a look at some of our custom created bundled Magic Wand packages and enjoy FREE priority shipping on any order over $69.  Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting us 24/7 here.
