Hitachi Magic Wand: Real or Fake?


The Hitachi Magic Wand has been a top selling adult toy for over 30 years now. What does this say about this product? That the wand is an amazing quality product that will last you a lifetime and is really loved by users and sellers both. Unfortunately, for this reason, there are many imitations of the beloved wand. Often they are cheap copies that don’t come close to the real deal.

The Hitachi HV250R is frequently being imitated and manufactured in countries like China and being resold as the real thing. However, the imitation does not come close when comparing the feel, power, weight and durability of the real massager. Therefore, we have put together a list of things to look out for when purchasing the Hitachi wand to make sure you are getting the genuine product.

Although the copies of the wand will replicate the same design and look as of the Hitachi wand you can still tell the difference when comparing these factors below:


1. Many of the copies have a removal foam head. In the case of the genuine massage the head is a one-piece structure and cannot be removed.

2. When holding the HV250R Hitachi massager you will notice that most of the weight is in the head and it is very top heavy.

3. The original wand has a solid rocker switch. Where one direction will be low speed and the other high speed. It is in off mode when the switch is positioned evenly in the middle.

4. Vibratex, Hitachi’s official distributor, only allows the wand to be sold within the United States and Canada. If you find versions of the wand with electronic plugs for other countries they are likely to be replicas. The wand can be found sold outside of these countries with a convertor. However this will void your warranty. As Vibratex does not distribute to countries outside of the United States and Canada.

5. The original wand is manufactured in Japan. Other massagers claiming to be the wand but manufactured in China, Korea, USA or any other countries will all be replicas.
