Huni Badger is a Las Vegas-based company founded in 2015. Dubbed the Portable Device, their one-of-a kind vaporizer works like a nectar collector but with the added benefit of digital temperature control without the need for torches or power cords. Huni Badger’s dedication to high-quality, original products and their unmatched customer service sets them apart from the vast majority of others in the space. Now that you’re acquainted, lets talk about the portable device itself in this Huni Badger review.
The Huni Badger Portable Device — An Electric Nectar Collector
Huni Badger’s portable device is a vertical vaporizer that makes a great portable vaporizer for around the house and with large groups of people. It’s powered by a single 18650 Li-ion battery, so it’s great for on the go, but along with its portability comes some excellent discretion. For example, the device allows you to store concentrates and the mouthpiece at the bottom of the device with its magnetic cap. It’s also small but mighty, checking in around the size of the average cell phone.
The device is sturdy and made well with machined parts and intuitive design. Its ceramic barrel warms the included high-temperature or low-temperature tips to the perfect temperatures for your favorite concentrates, and it’s exceptionally easy to use. Unlike most vaporizers where you load the concentrate into the device and warm it internally, the Huni Badger uses a ceramic barrel to warm the tip of the device, allowing you to use it like a nectar collector. Just assemble the device, push the button 5 times to turn it on, allow the tip to heat up for a few seconds, and then touch it directly to your concentrate storage container. From there you just inhale the vapor like you’re sucking a straw.
The pros and cons
There’s a lot to love about the Huni Badger. The sturdy device is designed to offer a very long path that cools your hits exceptionally well compared to other devices this size. More importantly – if cool, flavorful hits are your forte – the device comes with an additional mouthpiece that lets you take your hit through a water pipe instead. The device also comes with two tips, one for high temperature dabs and one for low, with a notable difference between the two. For smoother hits, opt for the low-temp tip. For large groups or bigger clouds of vapor, go for the high temp tip.
However, it doesn’t come with a battery. The manufacturer recommends using an 18650 Lithium-ion battery capable of discharging 20A or above. With that said, it’s battery life ultimately depends on the type of battery you purchase. A better battery means better performance, especially if you intend to use the device in sesh mode with friends. The only real complaint is a minor one, and that’s that the device tends to get sticky.
All in all, Huni Badger’s portable device is a great choice at home or on the go, and by yourself or with friends. Its versatility, quality design, ingenious tips, and unique design makes it a great choice if you’re tired of carrying concentrates, power cables, and torches around. We love it and we think you will too.
