HoneyStick BeeKeeper Review

8.5 Total Score
Bottom Line

The HoneyStick BeeKeeper is almost a great device. It’s a 510 battery for use with both refillable and pre-filled cartridges, is highly portable, and has a magnetic adapter to make inserting the cartridges even easier. So what went wrong? For starters, it only has a single voltage setting, plus it can’t use thicker oils and larger cartridges. So, it has all the right ideas but it just falls a little short in the execution of each of them. There is supposed to be an upgraded version coming soon but for now, it can’t compete with other, better batteries.

HoneyStick BeeKeeper Review

HoneyStick BeeKeeper Background

The BeeKeeper is a convenient, easy to use, oil vape from HoneyStick that should be great for all your favorite CBD and THC oils, whether they come in a bottle or in a pre-filled cartridge. Yep, the BeeKeeper is a 510 threaded battery that’s more convenient than most because of how small and discreet it is and because of how easy it is to use. Unfortunately, some design missteps prevent it from reaching its full potential.

The BeeKeeper is one of those batteries that fits easily in the palm of your hand and that you don’t have to fiddle around with because it only has a single voltage setting. That may reduce customization but it also speeds up session preparation. There’s more to the BeeKeeper, so keep on reading for more details about this battery.

If you’re ready to get it right now, then the BeeKeeper is available directly from HoneyStick for $40 and you can use our exclusive HoneyStick coupon code TVG18 for an 18% discount.

How it is Designed

HoneyStick BeeKeeper Design

The BeeKeeper fits easily into the palm of your hand or the pocket of your pants.

The BeeKeeper has a standard boxy design like so many of these batteries do. However, as I stated earlier, at just under three inches, it is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, or in whichever pocket you choose. One advantage these box style batteries have over the pen style vapes is that the cartridge slips inside of them so it is not exposed and prone to breaking like it would be on a pen style battery.

The BeeKeeper adds further convenience via its use of a magnetic adapter that attaches to the cartridge. Once it its attached, all that is necessary is to drop it into the cartridge receptacle, no screwing necessary. The BeeKeeper doesn’t stand out, but that is fine since it is clearly designed with covert vaping in mind.

How it Performs

HoneyStick BeeKeeper Performance

The cartridge well of the BeeKeeper is not big enough to fit larger pre-filled cartridges.

Vapor Performance:The BeeKeeper performs well with both the included refillable oil cartridge and with the pre-filled cartridges of your choosing. However, the performance lags behind other batteries because of the solitary voltage setting of 3.9V. It is fine for most situations but a wider choice of settings would have been preferable.

You should also know that the BeeKeeper won’t work with thicker oils and that larger cartridges won’t fit. Both issues should be ironed out in the updated HoneyStick Beekeeper 2.0, which should be launching soon and we’ll be sure to update the review once it’s released.

Battery Performance:The battery is twenty watts and can last for a few sessions, However, it takes around three hours to fully charge so keep that in mind.

The Last Word

The BeeKeeper feels like the prototype for a better device, all the ideas are there but the execution could be improved upon. It only has one voltage setting, and while that works well in most cases, more settings for more customization would be welcome. It’s great that it can use both refillable and pre-filled cartridges but it won’t work with thicker oils in the refillable cartridge and it doesn’t accommodate larger pre-filled cartridges.

Both of those issues should be addressed in the upcoming HoneyStick BeeKeeper upgrade. However, I have to review the device in front of me, and in its current state, it simply can’t compete with the other 510 compatible batteries on the market.

  1. I just got my Bee keeper today,the red light comes on then turns off. Is there something wrong with it?? Please help

  2. Can anyone measure this device and post the dimensions. The folks over at honey stick can’t seem to tell me how big it is.

  3. My brother bought one
    First one came broke, required pressure on the cartridges in a specific direction because the receiver part was cracked
    They sent him a new one that wouldn’t turn on, and they won’t respond to emails
    The original device sometimes starts vaping on it’s own, it gets pretty hot if you leave the cartridge in it

  4. I got one of these a while ago when medicinal marijuana was legal but recreational wasn’t (Yet). It’s unbranded but same exact design. I had been told the carts wouldn’t fit on standard Vape devices but turns out they were wrong… anyway Last night I watched product demonstration video from the creator: turns out you have to click it five times to activate it! Silly me maybe I don’t need weed after all haha. Not really, I do need it hehe
