Did you see my recent post about the Magic Wand Original, and find yourself wanting one of your own, but find that you’re in the UK- where you cannot get your own Magic Wand Original?
The Magic Wand Original is designed to support 110v voltage- and as such, is only available in North America. People who want to buy and use products like these elsewhere in the world need to find versions that will work with their electrical systems and plugs- but this is more difficult than it would seem at first blush.
When you try to look for wang-style massagers online, you’re inundated with knockoff magic wands or hitachis at a huge range of price points. If there’s one thing you should know about buying products from Amazon or unknown manufacturers or retailers online, it’s this: you shouldn’t do it. No matter how good the price is, there is no guarantee of quality and there have been various reports of items that may have been returned… potentially after being used. And no one wants to risk that.
Even if you’re not as concerned about these problems, you might buy a product that is less than stellar- one that will break sooner or not function well due to shoddy construction, and they may be made of sub-par and potentially toxic materials. There have even been reports of fake electronic safety certifications for wand style vibes in particular.
So if you’re in the UK and looking for a wand style vibe? One really good option is the UK Wand, which uses the correct voltage and a UK plug, so you don’t have to worry about an adaptor. Additionally, the UK wand has improved upon the Magic Wand Original: Ten patterns including different speeds and pulsations (the two speed original can’t shake a stick at that!), a removable head for easy washing, and a storage pouch.
In short, if you’re looking for a good wand style vibe in the UK? Try the UK Wand- it’s even in the name!
