    Gets grubby easily

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 – which has been designed for all-over body fun – could be for you if you're looking for a powerful tool. We’ve put a sample through a series of tests to help you decide if you think it’s worth the investment.

Everything you want to know about this body wand massager has been considered, including how it charges, how easy it is to handle and use, and how loud it is when switched on to the max. If you're looking for one of the best vibrators when it comes to power, this could be the one for you. 

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 was tested three times for varying lengths until it helped to achieve orgasm – it was even tested underwater. As with all vibrators we test, this one was switched on and off repeatedly afterward to check reliability. We sample many new sex toys, and most of them do not make it to the review stage as they are just not worthy enough.

Who does the Lelo Smart Wand 2 suit?

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 vibrator would best suit a couple who want to experiment with foreplay, arousing erogenous zones, and clitoral stimulation. 

If you can’t choose between the sensations of rabbit vibrators vs. clitoral stimulators, but you know you want something powerful to make you sizzle from head to toe, then a body wand vibrator like this is the best pick. It’s also suitable for anyone not comfortable with female masturbation techniques, which involve penetration.

What is the Lelo Smart Wand 2 like to use?

Having reviewed many sex toys, including the best rabbit vibrators, I can honestly say the Lelo Smart Wand 2 is one of the most powerful I have ever tried. In fact, the first thing you’ll notice about the Lelo Smart Wand is just how big it is – which, to be frank, can be quite overwhelming at times. 

At 304mm, it’s roughly the same length as my forearm, so it’s quite sizeable to hold. But while it’s definitely weighty (especially if you’re gripping it at odd angles), the weight is comparable to its size, so there are no big shocks there.

There are three control buttons, which are easy to use – these are the same as on the Lelo Ora 3. Simply press the central button firmly for three seconds to turn the massager on and off, and then quickly to move through the 10 different vibration settings. The two buttons on either side control the speed and velocity.

There are 10 vibrating modes to choose from. These are really varied and easy to differentiate between, which is not always the case in some cheaper models. In all honesty, the intensity of some of these settings is insane. And this is what makes the Lelo Smart Wand 2 really stand out from cut-price versions. The vibrations can be so extreme that the whole device shakes violently on the higher settings. My back felt numb (in a good way) after using it for a prolonged period. It’s intense and amazing – but be wary of using it on more intimate areas, and ask your partner to only lightly press it against delicate spots.

If you’re simply using this device as a way to ease tension in your back, then the long shaft makes it easy to give yourself a massage, even in those harder-to-reach areas. You can simply place it between yourself and the chair and let it do its work.

Another great thing about the size of the Lelo Smart Wand 2 is how its bulbous vibrating head (known as the Pleasure Point) covers a lot of surface area. This means it’s sure to find your sweet spots without too much trouble – you simply need to guide it in the right direction, and it will do the hard work for you.

What's the design of the Lelo Smart Wand 2?

If the Lelo Smart Wand 2 were a car, it would be a Ferrari. Smooth and sleek with a look-at-me-now shiny gold handle, this really stands out from the crowd. And that’s not even including its extra-large size, which is usually enough to turn heads.

Available in bright purple, black, or aqua (which is the one I trialed), it’s exceptionally well designed ergonomically, so you can grip the handle firmly and change speeds or vibe settings simultaneously. The control buttons are also slightly raised, making them easy to use without looking.

The shaft of the wand tapers in the middle, and this stylish design, combined with the super-soft silicone, makes you want to keep touching it. It’s incredibly pleasurable, even when it's not turned on. The bulbous head is wide and firm, which really moves about even on the lowest settings, thanks to the well-designed neck. 

While you’d have trouble finding a handbag large enough for this to fit, the branding is only about 10mm x 3mm, so still very subtle. Plus, as this doesn’t look like a real-life phallus, many people wouldn’t actually know what it was if they saw it in your home and would probably just think it was a back massager. Due to this, it won’t make your partner feel too intimated. It’s not competing with them, but actually something they may enjoy too.

The only downside I could see in terms of the design is that it can start looking grubby. I left mine in a notebook, and all the pen marks rubbed onto the wand. It’s easy enough to clean, but if you are spending this much, then you really want to keep it looking good, so always use the storage pouch provided.

How versatile is the Lelo Smart Wand 2?

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 is versatile in the way that it can be used both as an all-over body massager for achy muscles and for sexual arousal. So, already that makes it a 2-in-1 buy. It’s also great for solo use or with a partner.

There are also enough settings to keep things interesting and can definitely help with clitoral stimulation. In fact, if you want to know how to orgasm quickly, then using a large-ended massager like this one on your clitoris is an easy solution.

However, it can only be used externally - so you won’t be able to use it to stimulate internally, which is the same as the Satisfyer Pro 2 Air Pulse Stimulator. This means you can’t use it for G-Spot stimulation, which some people may be disappointed by. If you're looking for G-Spot stimulation, and if a couples' pick is important to you, then you might be better off with the We-Vibe Sync.

How much noise does the Lelo Smart Wand 2 make?

For something this large, you’d expect it to make some noise. And, sadly, the Lelo Smart Wand 2 is loud, even when on a low setting. You can really hear the motor working away, so not great if you have thin walls and no privacy. The motor becomes even louder when you hold it upside-down, too.

It’s so powerful that it makes any item of furniture it touches vibrate noisily - so watch out if you have a metal bed frame that’s next to a nightstand as it can create a chain of vibrations. 

There’s also plenty of noise when you use it underwater. In fact, I found it was so strong it made anything touching the bathtub starts to rattle and vibrate, too. While this isn’t the relaxing experience I was hoping for, it does go to show you just how strong this body wand massager is.

What's the battery use and charging like with the Lelo Smart Wand 2?

Before you use the Lelo Smart Wand 2 for the first time, you have to charge it for around two hours. 

This can be done easily with the Lelo Smart Wand charger, which connects to one end of the wand and then to a USB port. The three buttons on the front of the Lelo Smart Wand 2 flash whilst charging. One thing to note, though, is due to the size of the sex toy, you can’t really hide it while it’s charging, which might be an issue if you live with other people and you don’t want them to see it. I charged mine by plugging it into my laptop, and there was no hiding what it was – plus, it took up most of my desk!

Once being used, the four-hour battery life is definitely long enough. It’s so powerful that when used for clitoral stimulation, you’ll likely orgasm quickly. So, if you want to prioritize your own orgasm, then this one's for you. Plus, unlike a lot of sex toys, you’ll get advance warning when the batteries are beginning to decline as the three buttons on the front start pulsating.

What’s not good about the Lelo Smart Wand 2?

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 pretty much ticks all the right boxes. It’s great quality and does everything you need in a body wand massager. So the only negative I can find is also one of its best features: it may be too powerful for some people. And, if that’s the case, you may need to opt for a bullet vibrator, such as the Hot Octopuss DiGit vibrator, to masturbate with at first and then work your way up to something like this. 

With a couple, however, you can share the power – and the enjoyment.

w&h verdict on the Lelo Smart Wand 2

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 is definitely expensive, but with the powerful vibes it gives, you really do get value for money. After using a premium sex toy such as this, you really won’t want to go back to cheaper versions any time soon. 

Made with skin-safe silicone, you’re not likely to suffer any irritation from this toy – good news if you use it repeatedly – although you may have to go slow to avoid any bruising. 

If you have the cash, then it’s worth the investment – even if it’s just to work out the stubborn knots in your back.
