The 14 Most Powerful Vibrators You Can Buy in 2023

There are thousands of vibrators on the market that satisfy almost every sexual craving, but what should you reach for when you want something that’s not just strong…but extra-powerful? We’re glad to report that you’ve come to the right place. As a brand that takes your sexual pleasure seriously (you could say it’s kind of our thing!), we’re not playing games when it comes to recommending products that can blow your socks off. That’s why we put together this list of the most powerful vibrators money can buy, because you deserve to experience what a strong vibrator—one that’s worth the money!—can do. (Ahem, make you feel pretty freaking great, if we do say so ourselves.)

Certified sex and relationship psychotherapist Gigi Engle, resident intimacy expert at SexToysUK, says there are three things you should look for when shopping for extra-strong vibes: The type of vibrator you want, the motor, and the type of vibrations they offer. Wand vibrators tend to be the most powerful and pack the most punch for external stimulation, says Engle. Suction vibrators are great for clitoral stimulation, and rabbit-style vibrators or couples vibrators for when you’re craving some extra-hot internal sensations.

When it comes to motors, “the strongest motors will naturally contribute to the strongest vibrators,” says Engle. “The best ones will level up in intensity as you move through the settings.” Historically, wands that plug in (like the original Magic Wand), are some of the most intense. But these days, tech has given us toys that “are barely distinguishable” from those sweet, sweet plug-in sensations, like Le Wand and the newer Magic Wand models, says Engle. (More on that below!)

According to Engle, when you’re looking for vibration, there’s buzzy, and then there’s rumbly, “What people will enjoy will be highly variable and depend on what you’re looking for,” says Engle. “If you’re looking for power, rumbly will be your best bet. And by rumbly, we mean deeper, more intense vibration.”

But of course, the only way to really know what extra-powerful means to you is to experiment with different toys. Here are the ones we love and recommend, whether you’re a fan of clitoral stimulation, internal, or a little bit of both.

1. ZALO Kyro Wand Massager

“A quality vibrator should be both powerful and quiet with the best materials, especially body-safe silicone,” says Peter Ovsonka, the president and CEO of ZALO. That’s what makes the Kyro Wand Massager such a great choice, as it features ZALO’s innovative Direct Power 2.0 technology with six speeds and five vibration modes. Plus, the Kyro comes with multiple attachments designed to stimulate the nipples or deeper parts of the clitoris, providing suuuper intense orgasms.

2. Crave Duet Flex

What makes good vibrators great is not only how powerful they are, but how easily that power can be played with. For external stimulation, Crave vice president Ti Chang suggests the Duet Flex, which has next-level vibration power customization. While it kind of looks like a flash drive, it’s actually a super high-tech vibrator with two motors and an interactive app that allows you to endlessly experiment with power settings and patterns.

3. ZALO Confidence Pre-Heating Wand Massager

One component you might not have considered when vibrator shopping is a heated toy, but Ovsonka says the Confidence Pre-Heating Wand Massager, which gets up to 107 degrees, is one of ZALO’s best sellers. The warmth relaxes your body, while the eight vibration modes and bendy, 360-degree flexible head tantalizes all those hard-to-reach places.

4. Crave Vesper

It might look a bit funky, but the four separate motors in this toy are worth sticking around for. There’s simultaneous licking, suction, vibration, and you can flip it over and use the handle as an internal toy. It’s also waterproof and rechargeable and comes with two oval cup attachments, so you can choose which one fits your vulva anatomy best.

7. Le Wand Original

The Le Wand is like the Magic Wand, but even more powerful. The original model (the brand also sells “petite” versions) is rechargeable, cordless, and has 20 vibration patterns and 10 speeds. It also comes in a chic array of colors from white with rose gold accents to metallic grey to a newer all-black version. Every wand also comes with a handy travel bag—because who wants their ginormous vibrator collecting dust, amirite?

8. Zumio X

While the majority of powerful sex toys tend to be larger and heavier (a more powerful motor = more weight), the Zumio X is proof that good things can also come in small packages. The teeny-tiny tip is meant for ultra-precise clitoral and labial stimulation, so if you like direct clit stimulation, then this is your best bet. There are eight modes, it’s waterproof and rechargeable, and the body of the toy itself doesn’t vibrate much, meaning your hand won’t cramp up using it.

9. LELO Sona Cruise 2

We’re big fans of LELO’s Sona Cruise, and the newer iteration of the toy is even better. While it’s still got the toe-curling power of the original Sona, the new version features a larger opening to fit different anatomy better, and the power starts out with a gentler first setting, meaning you can work your way up to the intense levels more easily.

10. Hitachi Magic Wand Original

Often called the “Cadillac of vibrators,” the Hitachi is a time-tested fan favorite for a reason. Chang suggests it since it has a big head with lots of surface area and deep rumbly power that can stimulate the entire vulva. It plugs into the wall (though there’s also a rechargeable version), so if you’re a stamina bb, it can keep going as long as you can.

11. Adam & Eve The JoyStick Rechargeable Wand

Yeah, it might look intimidating at first, but the JoyStick is actually an ingenious design that’s flexible and vibrates at both ends for a variety of play. You can use it solo or with a partner, and the two ends mean you get two motors for über strength.

12. LELO Ina Wave 2

LELO’s Ina Wave 2 rocks back and forth in a “come hither” motion inside you for maximum stimulation. It is 100 percent waterproof, rechargeable, and features 12 patterns. The only downside: Reviews say you may not be able to walk after using, thanks to the multiple toe-curling orgasms this bb will give you. Sounds like a good problem to have, TBH.

13. Womanizer Duo

According to Stewart, “If you have a medium- to large-sized clitoris, you may need a powerful air pulse vibrator like the Womanizer Duo, which has strong vibrations as well as air pulse to give you a beautiful blended orgasm.” Touted as one of the best toys out there to stimulate oral sex, the Womanizer creates a seal around your clitoris and offers light-yet-rumbly vibrations. Ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand and rechargeable (one charge lasts up to five hours), this toy packs serious power and intensity.

Yeehaw!!

So…What *Exactly* Makes a Vibrator so Powerful?

Generally speaking, if you want a vibrator that vibrates very intensely, then you’ll want to look at the toy’s revolutions per minute (RPMs). As Marla Renee Stewart, a sexologist for Lovers, explains, a higher RPM will get ya a stronger vibration, which totally makes sense. But RPMs aren’t the only factor that affects your vibrator’s power. The weight of the toy matters as well.

“The heavier the counterweight, the deeper the vibration,” Ovsonka. Ofc, that doesn’t mean every toy with a powerful AF motor is going to be amazing. Ovsonka explains that toys also need to be balanced, so the vibration energy goes where it needs to go (like the contact area) and not anywhere else (like the handle, which would make your arm super tired).

Which Types of Vibrators are The Most Powerful?

As Engle mentioned, typically wand vibrators have the greatest RPMs, and the larger surface areas provide a powerful, overall stimulation. But suction vibes, which mimic the effects of oral sex, have a fab reputation as well. Regardless, Chang says that “what’s ‘powerful’ to someone with a sensitive clitoris may not be enough for another person,” since “pleasure is highly diverse, and depending on external factors such as stress/menstruation/medication, sensitivity can change from time to time.”

What Safety Tips Are Important to Keep In Mind When Using Super-Strong Vibrators?

As always, your best friend when it comes to any kind of sex or masturbation is to use lube. “Lube offers a barrier between the very sensitive skin of the vulva and a vibrator,” says Engle. “This is key to having enjoyable sensations that aren’t overwhelming.” She also recommends putting a barrier between the vibrator and the vulva to lessen the sensations. “You can use a soft tee-shirt, your sheets, or even a duvet.”
