When you put ‘power’ in the title of your product, there is a certain expectation. More often than not, I am usually left disappointed. Only on a few rare occasions has a product completely blown me away.
It’s also terribly exciting to be working with a brand new company as well. I was not a complete stranger to Harmony Store. I’ve been following them on Twitter for a while, and I visited their Oxford Street store around about a year ago. I purchased my first ever sex toy from a Bricks and Mortar store, and it was definitely an exciting experience.
When it came to choosing a few products for review, the PalmPower had caught my eye. Firstly, one can never have too many magic wands. I bloody love them. They are incredibly versatile and suitable for almost every body. But most of them are large and clunky, and with a week away planned at the end of April, I was wondering whether there were some more ‘travel’ friendly options that still pack a mean punch. Especially now that the Desire Wand has been discontinued (Boo!).
Admittedly, I was expecting the PalmPower to be a bit of a wash out. I mean, it’s tiny. When it arrived, it’s far smaller than I expected it to be. There was no way in hell that something that small, could put out the kind of power that I need. Well, all I will say for now is that I am happy to admit my doubts were completely unfounded. So let’s get down to it?

The PalmPower is a small mains powered magic wand. It arrives in very simplistic packaging. The wand sits inside a clear plastic tray, whilst underneath is a simple white box holding all of the power cables. The PalmPower is purely mains powered, with an AC adapter that plugs into the bottom of the wand. Inside the box, you get 4 plug adapters (UK, US, EU and AU) which is handy if you do plan to travel with it.
The wand measures just 7.5 inches in length, and has a circumference of 5 inches around the head. The head as a removable silicone cap for easy cleaning, but you can also purchase separate attachments, allowing you to expand on the functions of the PalmPower. I haven’t had a chance to look at any of these yet, and i’m unsure if I will; but I will update if I do. The wand itself is made from a mixture of silicone and ABS plastic, making it completely body safe.
Operation of the PalmPower is simple. It has a single button, which you press and hold. The longer you hold the button, the more intense the vibrations become. It’s lightweight hand as an ergonimcally shaped handle which is very comfortable to hold. So how does it compare to it’s bigger brothers?
As I mentioned earlier, I was already prepared to write off the PalmPower. I honestly thought there was no way in hell that this tiny vibrator could even compete with full size magic wands. Absolutely no way. The day it arrived, I plugged it in and turned it on. The PalmPower rumbled into life. OK, not bad, I thought to myself. It’s got a decent rumble on the lowest speed. Let’s see what else it can do. So I pressed the button and began to crank it up…
Ummmmm…. all I can say is….. WOW. pic.twitter.com/EQ5aG9GPUb

Yup. It had completely blown me away (and brought me to orgasm in pretty quickly too). I sat there, and just stared at this little, tiny device. Holy shit. Did it really just do that? I take back every bad thought I ever had about the PalmPower. As the old saying goes, never judge a book by it’s cover. And boy, did I feel incredibly foolish right now. Without a shadow of a doubt, the PalmPower is definitely a powerful little bugger.
The Wand is powered by what BMS refer to as ‘Power Bullet’ technology. I’ve had a look at the website and seen a few other products that are also supposedly utilising the Power Bullet. If the PalmPower is any indication of the vibration potential, then I think there are a lot of other vibrators I need to be trying; but that’s for another day.
On it’s lowest speed, the PalmPower has a moderate rumble not too dissimilar to the We-Vibe Tango. In fact, a quarter of the speed of the PalmPower feels very similar to the Tango in it’s top speed. That’s pretty impressive, i’ll say. But then the PalmPower just keeps on going. It’s top speed is pretty intense, if a tad finger-numbing. And this is where I think this vibrator will definitely divide opinion. I think you are either going to absolutely love it, or downright hate it. And I can see why someone would fall on both sides of the fence.
Firstly, the vibrations themselves are a mixed bag. On the lower speeds, they are pretty rumbly, but seem more focused in the handle, than in the tip. As you begin to increase the speed, the vibrations do become more focused in the tip, but that’s when the vibrations start to go into angry wasp level of buzziness. On the top speed, it’s literally like an entire beehive is going crazy. But there is still a certain… something… there that stops the vibrations from feeling too shallow. But it’s not going to be for everyone.
For our intended purpose, the vibrations worked and worked extremely well. The PalmPower can’t quite draw an orgasm out of me as quickly as say, the Doxy, but it’s still fairly short work. And I personally don’t see that as a bad thing. There are plenty of opportunities to use the PalmPower for a long drawn out edging session.
When using the PalmPower, the small surface area of the head allows for more contact on the frenulum, sending those vibrations deeply through all those sensitive areas. But we also discovered (purely by accident) that rubbing the tip on the opposite side of the glans, also yielded a pretty strong and intense orgasm out of my husband. In fact, I had never really done that on myself before. I tended to focus the vibrations on the underside, and it always worked. Never really thought about ‘the other side’. But sure enough, I gave it a whirl and yeah – it feels pretty darn good!
Clean-up and Maintenance
Naturally, as mains-powered wand, the PalmPower needs a little care when cleaning. Thankfully, the cap removes for easy clean-up. It pops off (and back on again) incredibly easy. As for the main body of the wand, just a damp cloth will be enough to leave it looking good as new (just be careful to not get any moisture into the open AC adapter port at the bottom).
As for storage, nothing is provided, but it is perfectly OK to store with other toys without issue. I am currently keeping it in the original box whilst i’m sorting out a new storage solution.
So the PalmPower is certainly a surprise. It does indeed pack a pretty strong punch, especially from something so small. Naturally, it doesn’t quite live up to it’s bigger and more expensive competitors, but for the price and size; it’s certainly a travel friendly option for when carrying a full size wand isn’t appropriate (but you want a bit more than say, bullet stim).
It’s lightweight size and shape would also make it a great addition for those who have limited mobility, and would find a full size wand too awkward to use. If you don’t mind a little bit of a buzz, I think the PalmPower will certainly leave a smile. But those who know they need (and crave) those deep rumbly vibrations through and through, then the PalmPower is probably not going to be your friend. But hey, that’s OK.
