Massage with luxuryThe LELO Smart Wand large is a great pick for a personal massager. The velvety soft, smooth silicone feels great gliding effortless over skin. The 8 levels of speed and patterns mean there is something for everyone here. The vibrations are strong while the toy remains surprisingly quiet. This wand is great for giving massages to yourself or to you partner. It can also be used as a clitoral vibrator.
The LELO Smart Wand large is best used for all over body massages. It is great to use alone or with a partner. The longer length and curve in the handle makes it easier to reach your back alone. It is covered in 100% body safe silicone that glides along the contours of the body effortlessly with or without massage oil. The Smart Wand is great for massaging out muscle pain or body aches. It is great for the shoulder and neck pain that I get due to migraines.
Some people may choose to use this wand as a clitoral vibrator, but due to the size and power on the higher settings, it isn't a choice for me but would probably work for fans of the Hitachi wand.
It is pretty quiet for its size. It doesn't resemble a sex toy at all so you can leave this laying around the house even if you bought it for this purpose, only you will know.
There is a metallic silver plastic on the front of the handle of the massager.
I didn't notice a smell with my medium wand but I did with the large. It had that "new car" scent. It wasn't overpowering or offensive and has gone away by simply having it out, using it and cleaning it with a wipe.
The wand is hypoallergenic, non-porous, latex and phthalates free.
The Smart Wand large is of course, larger than the medium, but I was surprised at how big of a difference there really is! The large wand has a length of 12" which is perfect for giving yourself a back massage. You can easily reach any spot on your back whether you reach from behind over your shoulder or under. The curved handle allows the head to glide effortless along the contours of your body. The flexible head is also great for covering every inch.
The head of the wand is 10" in circumference and I diameter of 3 1/8", which allows it to cover more ground than the medium wand. While it is a plus in that area, it may be a con to those wanting it for a sex toy because it covers a much broader area so you will not be getting pinpoint stimulation with this one.It will cover a large area when placed on your vagina. It is just a matter of personal taste when it comes to choosing which wand it best for you.
While it is larger than the medium, it is still a decent size to travel with. Both the large and the medium say they are 1 pound in weight. I honestly feel that the large is just slightly more heavier than the medium, yet it is still light weight enough that it won't tire your hand and arm out when holding it.
Compared to the LELO Smart Wand medium:
The instructions state that it has a 2 hour charge time which seems to be pretty accurate. Once you plug the charger into the port, the LED lights of the buttons on the handle will light up and blink. When it is done charging the lights will remain a steady glow. You should never use the wand while it is charging.
The buttons are easy to control and use. To turn it on, you will press the + button for about 3 seconds. Continue to press it up to 8 times to increase the speed. Pressing the - button will decrease speed. Holding down on the - button for 3 seconds will turn the wand off. To switch between patterns, press the middle () button. There are 8 patterns which are the same as the medium wand. I have pasted it from my medium wand review.
1) Steady vibrations
2) Slow, steady pulsations
3) Medium, steady pulsations
4) Fast, steady pulsations
5) Escalating steady buzz
6) Roller coaster
7) Faster roller coaster
8) I don't know how to describe this one it's a mixture of buzzing and pulsing, all over the place
The SenseTouch technology is designed to mimic real massage techniques by starting out slow and increasing to max strength when the wand touches the body. When you lift the wand off the body, you will notice that it will die down to a light vibration until you bring it against your body again. To activated this feature once you have turned the wand on, press the () button and hold down until the lights blink. Press the () button to go through the patterns using the SenseTouch. Hold down on the () button for about 3 seconds to turn the SenseTouch off and revert back to the normal mode.
The Smart Wands come with a travel lock feature. To activate this feature, press and hold down the - and + at the same time for about 5 seconds. Do this again to unlock.
Smart Wand also has a memory feature. When you turn it off and turn it back on again it will start on the setting it was last used on.
The vibrations are much stronger in the large wand than in the medium wand. I think the vibration is strongest in the head but can be felt throughout the entire wand. This may bother some people because on high, it will leave your hand and possibly part of your arm feeling buzzy. Personally, I don't mind it for massage but some people may hate this if wanting to use it for a clitoral vibe. It can feel a bit shaky as well. The vibrations are deep and rumbly feeling, very nice for a massage!
Do to it being so light weight, you will have to apply pressure yourself depending on your preference for how deep you want to feel the vibrations.
For the amount of power this wand has, it is surprisingly quiet. On high it is probably 3 bees but only 2 on the lower settings. If you are using it as a sex toy and worry about noise, turning the TV on, the radio, or something for background noise will help muffle the sound from being detected outside of a closed door. Someone needs to be right up at your door to hear it on the high setting.
As I mentioned before, do not use silicone based products with this wand.
To clean you can use a safe cleaner or wipe that isn't alcohol based, warm water and a mild soap or a 10% bleach/90% water solution.
The Smart Wand has a very nice box that you can store it in. I recommend storing it in the box or in the pouch that comes with it.
The packaging is very tasteful and perfect for gift giving; there is nothing offensive about it. I kept the product box as well as the box inside of it that contains the wand and the rest of the contents. You can store it in the box like I do or use the pouch that comes with it.
Inside the box is the wand, a 1 year warranty/10 year quality guarantee and an instruction manual.
I really enjoy these wands for massage, I just wish they had attachments like my InfraRed massager has.
I don't mind breaking either of the wands out and massaging myself, unlike with the heaver and corded InfraRed. My arm doesn't get tired from holding it up so I can actually enjoy the vibrations.
