Today we will take a close look at the Huni Badger, one of the most popular electronic nectar collectors right now. The unit itself is sold separately. Huni Badger kits, replacement parts, and other accessories are available to purchase on their website. The Huni Badger kits, which are available in seven colors, currently run for $189.00 on their website. We will detail our experience objectively as always in our non-affiliate reviews. For this review, I will try out the candy purple Huni Badger kit without the glass bubbler, which was not provided for this review.
Check out our video review of the Badger here.
Recommendations: Battery life and performance could use some improvements or upgrades, as well as lower temperature settings to prevent overheating.
With its slightly bulky yet robust build and muscular design, the extremely popular Huni Badger is durable, with a strong stainless metal body. This is definitely one of the strongest portable electronic nectar collectors you can find in the consumer market. Although convenient to use, this electronic nectar collector requires a rechargeable 18650 Lithium-Ion battery. A battery charger is especially recommended for this device, which is also available to purchase on their website.
With its efficient hollow ceramic heating barrel, the flavor we get from this device is surprisingly good for this electronic nectar collector. The Huni Badger kit includes the following:
This electronic nectar collector is most efficient with live resin sugars, sauces, diamonds, shatter, crumble, and cold cure hash rosin. However, one of the weaknesses of the Huni Badger is the lack of temperature control. It goes as low as 192°F/88°C to as high as 703°F/372°C. So, there may be some minor trial and error, depending on which kind of extract is used.

One of the most useful features of the Huni Badger is the flashlight below the ceramic tip, which is especially necessary if you’re in the dark or somewhere with limited light. Another great feature is that the Huni Badger barely requires maintenance since any residue can be efficiently burned off by turning it on without touching any extract for a few minutes. The unit also performs well in the flavor department, compared to other similar electronic nectar collectors. For our trial runs, the Huni Badger worked well withUtopia Extracts live resin, Errl Hill live resin, and Exhale Wellness Delta-8 crumble for this review.
The next useful feature is its ingenious addition of several storage units. Two are provided within the kit and one is attached to the Huni Badger ceramic tip cover. Although the storage units are pretty small, most concentrates will be able to fit in the storage cups. Admittedly, the storage cups would be one of the few units to clean and maintain before and during travel.
To sum up my thoughts: I would recommend its bulky yet robust build, muscular design, excellent flavor, quick heat-up time, innovative storage, and easy maintenance. However, the price for the Huni Badger is much higher than other similar or smaller electronic nectar collectors, closer to the value of the Lookah Seahorse X. The main weaknesses of the Huni Badger are the lack of a USB charging port, the use of battery-centric operation, and the lack of temperature control. If they are able to improve these aspects of the Huni Badger, then this would be one of the most perfect electronic nectar collectors available anywhere.
You can purchase this nectar collector in seven different colors for $179.00 here. The available colors are nitro green, black, pearl white, royal blue, crimson red, calico orange, and candy purple. Glass bubblers, ceramic tips, batteries, chargers, replacement parts, and other accessories can also be purchased through their official website.
