 mysticwandheadstoneAs some of you may have suspected, but feared it wasn’t true, I can confirm that we’ve lost another good sex toy. I admit, the loss doesn’t hit me quite as hard as the loss of the We-Vibe Salsa, but nonetheless I’m sad to say an official goodbye to the Rechargeable Mystic Wand.

So, what happened? Well, Vibratex was working on improvements and redesign, but apparently they weren’t happy enough with the changes. It took so long that by the time they received their most recent prototype they decided to abandon the project, as they felt there were other wand vibrators currently on the market that were better. They didn’t want to release something that wasn’t the best.

We too are sadden by the termination of the project, as I mentioned it was a difficult decision, but one that had to be made – delivering quality products is important to Vibratex – we always want to consider the consumer when it comes to our products and felt it best not to put out something we weren’t happy with just for the sake of selling toys – it’s not who we are.

While I would normally choose the battery-powered version of the Mystic Wand (I need to get used to calling it THE Mystic Wand now, I guess) I know that plenty of readers preferred the rechargeable option. However, do not despair! Vibratex is working on something new to replace it, something rechargeable, but that is all the information I have. I don’t know when it’ll be unveiled, I don’t even know if it will be a wand massager. We’ll have to wait! If you own a Rechargeable version, give it a hug or something. If you’ve wanted one, you’re out of luck. The decision is final, no amount of tears or petitions will bring it back, and it seems that no retailer is selling off old stock.

    Well, there goes the hopes of getting it as a birthday present. I was seriously hoping it would be back out fairly soon. (My birthday is June 14th.) Oh well, though. I’ll probably just stick with the original one, or possibly get the Shibari Halo. Do you happen to know how well the original works with rechargeable batteries? I’ve had some vibes that feel the exact same with my rechargeable (Eneloop batteries) as they do with brand new Energizers. Some vibes, on the other hand, seem to hate rechargeable and barely put out any power. It’s really strange, but it’s not a huge deal. I just prefer rechargeable so if I don’t have time to get batteries I can still have fun, as long as I remembered to charge everything.

  • In general, I’ve found that higher powered vibes do horribly with rechargeable batteries. Only the buzzy kinda-weak ones do okay.
