Honi is honed to perfection..well almostOverall I felt like the positives definitely outweigh the negatives where this product was concerned. The positive points were that it was very easy to hold, very quiet, and it had a decent amount of power for such a small toy.
Only uses 1 battery, discrete, quiet
Not 100% waterproof, poor button design/location
The Honi by PicoBong, a more affordable extension of LELO, is a bullet vibe. It can be used on your clit, nipples, balls, and around the anus. It can be inserted, although I don't recommend it for two main reasons. The cord isn't very long, and although I didn't test it, I would say it wouldn't withstand intense tugging on it. It also shouldn't be inserted because the buttons to change the speed would be on the inside if you inserted it. What that means is if the vibrations weren't high enough for you, you or your partner would have to remove the bullet to change the vibration patterns. I am not sure about you but the last thing I want to happen when I am having fun during "sexy time" is to pause, pull out the toy, change the vibration pattern and then reinsert. It would be like starting all over again from scratch and that's no good. This is a very quiet toy, I would say about 2 bees, so there is no problem using it behind a closed door. I think depending on how loud the situation, you might be able to sneak in some play while in the same room as other people, but don't blame me if you get caught "getting off".
The Honi is made of body-safe FDA approved silicone and ABS plastic. The Honi is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalates free. On the body of the bullet is the PicoBong logo. The P has a minus(-) sign and the B has a plus(+) sign. The body is silicone and the end cap is plastic as well as the cord. After taking this little vibe out of its box, I detected no smell. It also had no taste, which I found out after I washed it. You should always wash your toys before using them. The bullet was very smooth to the touch. It is not bendable at all. The logo on the side of this vibe is slightly raised, but it's not very noticeable.
This vibe has a tapered tip that fits amazingly well against my clit. It is about the size of my pointer finger and fits well in my hand. The Honi is a small, well shaped bullet. It does have 1 major design flaw. In order to change speeds/variations when the toy is inserted, you must first remove it before you can change the speed. The Honi is 3 1/4" long and 1" in diameter at it's thickest point and 0.5" at the tapered tip. It is so small that you can slip this into your pocket and no one would ever notice it, unless you forgot it in your pants and your mother found it when she was sorting your clothes to wash. I would suggest you never forget it in your pocket, EVER.
There are 12 variable speeds, which I must admit didn’t excite me as much as I’d hoped. I Stayed mainly on the first level. The different speeds went up by pressing the plus (+) sign. To go to the next level the instructions say to hold the button for 2 seconds. I found that it was closer to 4 seconds before the speeds changed. To go down in levels, you just need to press the minus (-) sign until you get to the level that you want to use. To turn it off, hold the P button down until it turns off. I found that this seems to be a negative feature on the part of the manufacturer. If you want to turn it off without going through all of this, you can just unscrew the endcap. The vibe is very quiet, and the controls are easy but not necessarily convenient to use. PicoBong says this toy is waterproof so I tested it for about 20 minutes before taking it out and drying the it off. I unscrewed the cap and found water in the section where the cap screws as well as a few drops inside the battery compartment. It is possible that this is just splash-proof instead of waterproof, but I am not testing it near or in water again to find this out. It performed well in the water and didn't lose much of the intensity when underwater.
The Honi is best used with water based lubricants since silicone based lubes can sometimes cause silicone products to degrade. I clean it with antibacterial soap and warm water most of the time that I use it. Occasionally, I will use my Eden toy wipes if I am not in the mood to go to the bathroom to wash it. I always do a spot check around the logo to make sure I got it nice and clean since ridges have a tendency to hold things in. I have been storing this little thing in a small cloth bag to separate it from other toys.
The Honi came in a small teal and black box that also contained a black die with the different PicoBong vibes indented in red on each side. I saw on the PicoBong site that the die was for use with a game located there, but I admit to not being interested enough to try it. It was easy to get into the box, and although I saved it, I don't actually use it for storage because it wasn't very sturdy.
This is not a toy that may work for everyone. I have a sensitive clit so it worked well for me. It is a nice alternative to corded bullets and huge vibrators. It also works very well during sex. You or your partner could hold it for some added delight.
I was shocked at the amount of power that came out of this little toy with only 1 AAA battery. With this one battery, you can get about two hours of play although I have yet to need it for two hours. I have used this wonderful toy many times, and at my longest amount of time spent using this toy, I have only gotten to 45 minutes before having been satisfied several times. For a toy that vibrates as much as this one, it didn’t make my hands nor my clit numb at all. If I could have given this toy a half star, it would have gotten 3.5 stars because with the design flaws and the question of whether it is or isn't actually waterproof, I just couldn't bring myself to give it 4 stars.
Follow-up commentary 22 days after original review
I have found that I don't like this at all anymore. I have gotten some other toys and I prefer more power than what is offered with this toy.
