iWand Enhanced Rechargeable Massager Review
I was really excited to get a wand, finally even though the iWand is more like a generic wand than a well known brand. I’ve wanted one for awhile after hearing all the hype about how great they are. When I first tried out my new iWand, I was a bit deflated. Having expected to get instant mind blowing orgasm when I didn’t the first time it was a let down. After giving it a real go, playing with it several more times, I was willing to give it another chance thinking maybe it wasn’t all bad.
You can see my review of a smaller personal massager here
The iWand is a big toy, the biggest I’ve used so far which felt a bit odd to start with then it became a bit of a novelty. Once I really got used to it I found the size to be a plus, enabling the vibration to stimulate a wider area. With lube the rounded head made of soft silicone slides around to wherever you want to feel it.
The iWand has 10 speeds or more accurately modes with different pulsations and two levels of constant vibration.
It’s made of 100% silicone and phthalate free which is a plus because it’s made from body safe materials, unfortunately not all toys are. Another feature I like about it is that it’s waterproof which is becoming pretty standard in rechargeable sex toys. Not only can you have fun in the shower or bath but it makes for easier cleaning.
Price and warranty
It also comes with a 1 year warranty which is good for any electrical product, especially sex toys which can set you back a bit financially. The iWand isn’t overly expensive mine was bought on clearance so it was cheap. I just had a look and they’re selling for anywhere between $25 and $80aud, a bargain really.Massage I found it worked well for massaging my lower back and other areas which hold tension. It was fun to play with, with my partner which we did a couple of times. The size is a real novelty factor which took a bit of getting used to.
This morning I had a back ache and used it before I had to go out, it got rid of the pain in no time.
Using the iWand
I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite toy but I’m glad I tried it out. After getting used to the size and how it works and feels, I was able to reach orgasm which I can’t always and don’t with all toys, so that’s a major positive. It does actually do what I purchased it to for.
I’m glad I have had an introduction into the world of wand vibrators and look forward to getting my hands on a quality brand wand one day so I can experience a more intense vibration and have more control over how strong the vibration is as most have more than two levels of strength. I love that its pink, it also comes in purple, both my favorite colors.
The price wasn’t too bad but I kind of wish I had saved up for a more well known brand of wand and probably a corded one for power. The cordless design gives you some freedom and flexibility but the power output isn’t the same when it’s not plugged into mains power.
It charges quite quickly, with 3 hours of charging giving you 3 hours of battehysicalry usage. I wish it could be used while it’s plugged in to mains power but it doesn’t allow for that so when it’s charging you just have to wait. My first impression of it is that it’s more of a novelty toy than a real wand vibrator. I guess I should have known it wouldn’t have the grunt of a mains power, plug in type wand.
Being rechargeable is a bonus most of the time but sometimes it doesn’t provide the power you need for the job, with a wand you really want that kind of intensity.
My overall final impression
The iWand makes for a novelty toy or good beginners wand so you can give one a try on a low budget.mI suggest thinking about saving the money and putting it towards a newer wand manufactured by a reputable well known company, many will come with a warranty so it’s worth some consideration.
The oomph of the vibration might be enough for some people or like for me it was enough sometimes. I would’ve liked to have more control over the level of vibration. It did do the job in the end so I can’t complain entirely. It’s not a terrible toy, but as I said earlier more of a novelty item.
For now, I am still awaiting the day I reward myself with a wand that is reputable and runs on mains power. Until then I’ll play with my iWand when the feeling takes me.
(Update: I got a Lovehoney Wand so I’ll be doing a review on that soon!)
