Whether you're flying high in the bedroom with your Hitachi Magic Wand, or flying high with it on holidays.... we'll share the best practices for taking your Magic Wand with you on airline travel.
When it comes to looks, the advantage of owning a Magic Wand is that it doesn't resemble a sex toy. It's a back massager, remember. So, if you're in a situation at the airport where your luggage is being inspected, there's no need to stress if your Magic Wand gets discovered by airport security, or at your grandma's house when visiting.
The Hitachi Magic Wand Rechargeable and Hitachi Magic Wand Mini both have non-removable built-in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which are under 100Wh (watt-hour) in power capacity. This is good news, as all domestic Australian airlines permit the carriage of a rechargeable Hitachi Magic Wand in carry-on or checked baggage due to the 100Wh rule.
There's one important but simple rule you need to follow before taking your rechargeable Magic Wand with you on a flight. Doing so will keep you in line with dangerous goods and airline safety regulations, as well as minimizing any embarrassing moments.
Here's the rule... pack your Magic Wand in something protective before placing it in your suitcase or hand luggage, ie:
- Pack it in the manufacturers carton,
- Pack it in a cardboard box with with protective packaging,
- Store it in a protective case or container,
- Wrap it in a towel or clothing.
Following this one rule will prevent your Magic Wand from accidentally turning on inside your luggage if it gets knocked around (no one wants a vibrating suitcase).
It also protects your Magic Wand and its internal batteries from getting damaged, which will prevent a safety issue from occurring.
Because all Hitachi Magic Wands are extremely well made and super durable, damage to it while it's in your baggage would be as likely as not having an orgasm while using it.

These are official regulations regarding lithium battery operated devices being carried on aircraft:
