The Bottom Line

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is a long overdue upgrade of the "legendary" Hitachi Magic Wand. Fans of the Hitachi Magic Wand welcomed its rechargeability and cordlessness, and the addition of gentler speed settings. Power lovers were pleased that despite being cordless, it is still as powerful (on the highest setting) as the original corded version, if not stronger. Its main drawback is its weight, which is heavier than the original due to batteries. Despite so, fans and users were still impressed with the Magic Wand Rechargeable and frequently recommend it over the original version.
