Do you want the power that you get from Hitachi Magic Wand style massagers but hate the awkward size and weight, the noise and the unhygienic head? Well, maybe you’ve already heard me raving about this thing but I really do love it. The PalmPower is everything you wish your Magic Wand style massager could be. It’s smaller, lighter and quieter. It has a silicone head and most importantly, it’s powerful.
I’m going to have to compare the PalmPower to the Hitachi Magic Wand because, that’s the only other wand style massager I have. Plus people are familiar with it and let’s face it, most other wand massagers have been modeled after it. I believe the PalmPower beats the Hitachi hands down and I really can’t see myself using the Hitachi anymore now that I have the PalmPower.
As already mentioned, it’s significantly smaller and lighter. The Hitachi is 12.25 inches long while the PalmPower is only 7 inches. The head of it is smaller (1.5 inches in diameter) and so, it fits down in between my labia better. The PalmPower is louder than most of my other vibrators but it’s worlds quieter than the Hitachi. The cord is longer and it has a removable silicone cap that’s easily cleaned. I always hated that the Hitachi’s head was PVC (a porous material that can’t be sanitized). So, all those things are vast improvements over the Hitachi but let’s talk about what’s really important… power.
I’ve already said it once and I’ll say it again, the PalmPower is fucking amazing. The power of this thing is so far and beyond any other vibrator I own, except the Hitachi (and Wahl), and the PalmPower can definitely hold its own against it. I would say that the Hitachi is a bit more powerful but when you consider all the advantages the PalmPower has over Hitachi, it easily comes out ahead. This is the vibrator I use when I don’t want to screw around and I want to have an orgasm now. There is no gradual approach to orgasm when I use this thing. I put it on my clit and it’s just insta-gasm; the kind that makes my whole body involuntarily convulse.
I really enjoy using the PalmPower when I’m having sex with dizzyguy. It fits in between us so much better than the big clumsy Hitachi and since I don’t orgasm from internal stimulation alone, when I use it on my clit during sex, I’m guaranteed to have them – as in, more than one. In fact, when I start to come, if I continue holding the PalmPower against my clit, the orgasm just seems to go on and on until I can’t take it anymore and I have to stop. Now, I can’t promise that you’ll have this kind of response to the the PalmPower but I am confident in saying that if it’s power you’re looking for then you really can’t go wrong with this massager.
The PalmPower has been designed using PowerBullet technology, which is also used in brands like Leaf, Leaf+, Lux, Swan and Jopen Vanity. I have to say, the PalmPower has made me a believer in the PowerBullet technology but they’ve definitely done something different with the PalmPower because I have the Fresh+ and while it’s not a wimpy vibe by any means, it doesn’t even come close to the PalmPower’s awesome strength.
The PalmPower has one button and you press and hold to turn it on. Continue to hold it to increase the intensity. The intesity is continuously adjustable. There aren’t preset levels so, you can really fine tune it to what feels best to you. This is yet another huge improvement over the Hitachi, which only gives you two speeds to choose from. At the low range of intensity, you feel the vibration more in the handle than in the head but once you increase it just a bit, you can feel the vibration transfer into the head. The vibration is strong in the handle. It doesn’t make my hand go numb but it’s something to consider if you think it would bother you. To turn it off simply press the button.
There are a couple of slightly annoying little issues with the controls. If you just want to increase the intensity a little bit and you press the button too briefly, it shuts off. You also can’t adjust the intensity back down. You have to shut it off and ramp back up again to where you think you wanted it. As much as I love the PalmPower I think they could greatly improve upon it by giving it two buttons. Perhaps + and – buttons where the + turns it on and increases intensity and the – decreases intensity and turns it off. BMS Factory, if you’re listening… please give the next generation PalmPower two buttons. Other than that, I really have no complaints about this massager.
Another way BMS Factory improved on the Hitachi is that the PalmPower has a removable silicone cap. It easily just pops right off and you can clean it with antibacterial soap and water. If you need to sanitize it, a 10% bleach solution can be used or, it can be boiled for a couple of minutes. The wand itself is in no way waterproof or even splash proof. So, don’t even think about trying to clean it in the sink. I simply wipe it down with an antibacterial wipe and that’s really all it needs. Since the cap is silicone, you’ll probably want to use water-based lube because some silicone lube can damage some silicone sex toys.
Another complaint that people always have about the Hitachi is that the cord is too short. Yet again, BMS Factory built a better mousetrap… uhm, massager. The PalmPower has an 8′ 3” cord where the Hitachi’s cord is only 6 feet long. This makes maneuvering around the bed much easier. Since the PalmPower is sold worldwide, it comes with several outlet adapters for different countries.
The neck of the PalmPower is somewhat flexible and I was asked if this would prevent someone from applying pressure to the clit. I can’t see anyone having a problem applying the amount of pressure they want. The head only deflects just a small amount.
There are 4 attachments available for the PalmPower and they come in sets. One set is called PalmBody and the other, PalmSensual. The PalmBody attachments are meant for massaging parts of the body other than the genitals but there’s certainly nothing stopping you from getting creative with them.
The PalmBody set includes the PalmFinger attachment which is meant to massage, you guessed it, the fingers but again, feel free to experiment. The PalmCurve attachment is for massaging arms and legs or, anywhere else you damn well please.
The PalmSensual attachments are more like obvious sex toys. The PalmBelow is for G-spot stimulation and the PalmDual is dual stimulator. The shapes of the PalmSensual attachments are reminiscent of Swan and Jopen Vanity vibrators and that’s not surprising since, BMS Factory manufactures both brands.
I honestly haven’t had much success with the attachments. The PalmDual doesn’t work for me but that’s a matter of incompatibility with my anatomy, which is a problem I run into often with dual stimulator or rabbit style vibrators. The PalmBelow gives me a fair amount of G-spot stimulation but since the neck (of the attachment) is so flexible, I can’t apply as much pressure as I’d like. I’ve experimented some with the PalmBody attachments on my clit but truthfully, the standard silicone cap that comes with it works best for me.
The PalmPower wasn’t even on my radar when the good folks at BMS Factory offered to send me one in exchange for a review. I hadn’t heard anything about it and as amazing as it is, that’s a real shame. I really didn’t have much interest in wand massagers because I already had the Hitachi and figured I didn’t need another wand massager. How wrong I was.
The PalmPower is just plain awesome and you power queens out there need to get one of these. I was never too thrilled with my Hitachi Magic Wand but I absolutely love my PalmPower. BMS Factory fixed everything that sucks about big clunky wand massagers and yet somehow, didn’t sacrifice power. Since it’s A/C powered there are no batteries or recharging to worry about. You just plug it in and go… and for me that means insta-gasms.
BMS Factory is the manufacturer behind well known brands like Swan, Jopen Vanity and Leaf so, they have an established reputation for quality… and I’ll let you in on a little secret, the Cal Ex Couture Collection Inspire is the same massager. BMS Factory manufactures it for Cal Ex.
The only real difference is color and I assume that the Inspire does not come with the outlet adapters that are included with the PalmPower. So, if you want one for international use, get the PalmPower. SheVibe has them priced the same and if you’re interested in purchasing either one, please consider getting it from them by clicking through one of my affiliate links. In doing so, I’ll make a small commission at no extra cost to you and that helps to keep me blogging.
