[2018] X4 Labs Extender Review: Bigger Dick Or Cheap Trick?!

X4 Labs Gold Luxury Edition Package

UPDATE: Due to increasing number of consumer complaints about poor after-sales customer service I no longer recommend the X4 Labs extender. Apparently, once the company has your money you will have a hard time trying to get any response from their support.

There are many reports of shipping problems and complicated refund process made worse by non-responsive customer service. You can read the complaints at Pissed Consumer.

If you are looking for a quality penis extender with full documentation and good customer service I'd recommend PeniMaster PRO.

You probably wish you had a bigger 'talent' to trot out in the bedroom! Well, pretty much every man out there has the same wish, and the market is full of products of all sorts that promise to fulfill this dire manly desire.

One of those 'penis enlargement' products is the X4 Labs penis extender system, which you may have heard about on a web forum, review website, or an advertisement. And if you are wondering whether it is worth the investment or not, you are in the right place for a factual answer. This is a detailed review of X4 Labs where I'll try to explain everything you should know about this product before being suckered into buying something you later regret.

What Is This Enlargement Contraption Anyway?

A penis extender, traction device, or stretcher is a type of penis enlargement device that works as the name suggests, i.e. it extends or stretches the penis by applying a constant, gentle pulling force on the shaft.

This technique, while not widely supported by medical professionals, has been clinically studied and actually proven to work. It's been even featured on popular news websites, like The Daily Telegraph.

X4 Labs is one of the oldest original penis extender brands on the market, alongside Andro-Penis and Jes-Extender.

How Does It Increase Penis Size?

The continuous traction force the device applies on the penis prompts penile tissue to expand and grow, that's what the theory says.

Traction therapy technique utilizes the natural ability of the body to adapt to external stimulation, and so in response to the pulling force the penis will eventually comply and expand by tissue growth.

Another way the X4 extender can help is by pulling out the base of the penis. There is a significant portion of the shaft that resides hidden inside the body, and slow traction may help bring out some of that hidden length resulting in enlargement in the visible portion of the shaft.

Does It Increase Girth?

The X4 Labs extender alone can only increase penile length. However, some of the packages come with a penis exercise program (DVD) called PenisAccess, which can help increase girth.

Manual penis exercises improve blood circulation and capacity of erectile tissue when performed on a regular basis, and that's how many men managed to increase their girth. Blood flow is the secret to thicker and fuller penis.

What Results Can Be Achieved?

On average, men who wear the device for at least 6 hours a day over a period of 6 months can see increase in length up to 1 inch (varies per individual).

Some users go to extreme lengths wearing the device 12 hours a day for a few years, and there are claims of 2 and 3 inch growth. It may be possible to gain such results in some cases, although not likely.

Keep your expectations low and reasonable so you won't be disappointed later. If you could gain 0.5 to 1 inch in length that would be very significant, so keep your goal within that range.

Any results you gain will be permanent.

Does X4 Labs Really Work?

Because efficacy depends on the compliance of each individual body, no one can tell you what result you'll achieve. Some users managed to gain more than an inch in length, others gained less than an inch, and others didn't see any change after months of traction therapy.

Results will vary for each user, and sadly it may not work for everyone. The X4 Labs device itself does work as good as you'd expect from a penis extender, but again, not every body may respond positively to penile traction therapy.

If you are looking for options to enlarge your penis other than surgery, then using a penis extender - like X4 Labs - is the only method that has been clinically tested and proven to work.

It's not a fast or easy solution, but if you have some extra money and time to invest in a penis extender then it is worth giving a try.

Needless to say, other quick-fix enlargement products like pills, patches, creams, etc will definitely not increase your size, and thousands of disappointed customers out there who fell for these scams will testify to this fact.

How To Use The Device?

X4 Labs is quite simple use. It will probably take you a few trial and error attempts until you find the most appropriate and comfortable setting for your penis size and shape.

The package comes with usage instructions manual and DVD. The following are some basic demonstrative videos:

Once fastened securely around your shaft, you can hide it under loose pants. The goal is to wear the device for 6+ hours a day. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. If this is your first time using a penis extender, it can feel a bit uncomfortable at first until you get used to it.
  2. As a beginner, start by wearing it for 1 hour a day during the first week, 2 hours/day second week, 3 hours/day third week, and 4 hours/day forth week. After that you should wear it for 6-8 hours a day.
  3. Some people take 1 or more rest days per week. You can start by wearing it every other day, then you can move to wearing it 6 days a week when you are more comfortable with it.
  4. You may want to check on the little guy every hour or so. Circulation to the glans may get blocked, and you may need to remove and re-wear the device to restore circulation.
  5. You should not feel pain, numbness or any abnormality in the penis (shaft or glans). If you do, that means you're doing something wrong. Remove the device and try to figure out what you've missed.

Pros Of X4 Labs

  • Wide Range of Plans: X4 Labs comes in several packages with different extras and spare parts, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
  • Affordable: The most basic Deluxe Edition costs $80. It's a far better deal than many other overpriced brands that don't even come with any spare parts.
  • Different Straps: X4 Labs comes with adjustable comfort straps (rubber), silicone tube harnesses, and Velcro straps. You can choose between these the most comfortable and secure fastener for you. (Note: Not all packages contain these three types)
  • Memory Foam Pads: These go between the strap and your penis skin for extra comfort and protection. A must-have in any penis extender.
  • InfiniteFit Quad Support System: This enables you to mount two similar or different fasteners of your choice for maximum comfort and secure fit. This is a unique feature of X4 Labs. (Note: This is available as an add-on)
  • Mini Quad Support: This piece is specifically designed for users whose flaccid length is below 4 inches. If this applies to you, you must add this extra to your order. Most other devices don't fit sizes below 4 inches.
  • Wide Girth Base: The regular base of the device has a 5-inch circumference. The Wide Girth Base option has a circumference of 6.5 inches, which can be more comfortable for users with a thick penis.

Cons Of X4 Labs

  • Costly Add-Ons: There are different additional parts that aren't included in standard packages and will cost you extra money.
  • Not Easy on Returns: The company (Canada-based X4 Labs Inc) offers a 1-year money back guarantee, however, the process is lengthy and complicated. They require you to submit reports/pictures of your progress before you can request a refund to prove that you have actually used the device and it didn't work. Make sure to read their return policy carefully.
  • Sketchy Advertising: There is a never-ending 'limited' discount on their website. The 'time left' countdown timer has been running for years, i.e. it is fake! That is actually a quite common marketing trick many online companies use. Also, the rave 5-star reviews on their website seem fishy.

Bottom Like, Is X4 Labs Worth Buying?

All in all, the X4 Labs is a good product as far as commercial penis extenders are concerned. I'd give it a thumbs up for the reasonable prices compared to similar products on the market. This is one the most affordable penis extenders you can buy online and it is functional.

X4 Labs comes with many options and spare parts you don't get with most other devices. It is a good choice for both beginners and advanced users. But remember that success in gaining results is not guaranteed since the penile traction/stretching technique does not work for everyone, regardless of the device used.
