Like its predecessor, the Badger Unleashed has a compact 5 x 5 x 7" form factor an at 4 lb is lightweight as well. Convenience features include a Bowens S-Type front accessory mount, making it compatible with the many manufacturers that produce products with this popular mount. The Badger Unleashed also has a built-in pop-up softbox ring that makes for very fast setup and a frosted glass-domed flash tube that exhibits the very even light dispersion that's so valuable when using softboxes. Lightweight with a small form factor, impressive performance, as well as control and power options make the Badger Unleashed hard to beat.

Built-In Battery Power

Equipped with a 2900mAh battery offering cable-free portability, 430 full-power flashes, and a 90-minute recharge time from exhausted to fully charged.

Compact Form Factor

Size and weight are crucial for the mobile photographer. The Badger Unleashed weighs in at under 4 lb, measures just 5 x 5 x 7".

Extended Power Range

9-stop power range, the same as the S1, and two more stops than the original Honey Badger. Power can be adjusted from 250Ws down to 1Ws in 1/10th of a stop increments for precise exposure.

Fast Recycle Time

At full power, the Badger Unleashed recycles in just 1.5 second. Recycle times get even shorter as you decrease flash power.

HSS and TTL

HSS enables shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second, while TTL metering automatically adjusts flash power to create an accurate exposure. TTL mode also provides +/- 3 stops of exposure compensation.

LED Modeling Lamp

The 15W LED modeling lamp produces 1250 lumens, and can be used as a continuous light source for both photo and video applications. The daylight-balanced LED can be adjusted proportionate to the flash power, or set to full power.

Built-In Radio Receiver:

Features a built-in radio receiver that is compatible with all Interfit TTL and manual remotes. This allows full control over the light's power range, flash mode, modeling lamp, and beep function.

Versatile Modifier Mount:

Uses the popular Bowens S-Type accessory mount, making it compatible with all your favorite Interfit modifiers. Made popular by the original Honey Badger, the Badger Unleashed also features a built-in pop-up softbox ring.

Glass Dome Diffuser

Includes a frosted-glass dome diffuser that protects the flash tube and helps to spread light evenly throughout larger modifiers.

The trick is in the naming semantics of the Godox 7" this reflectors. This one will work https://bhpho.to/2KaE4AN simple and easy. This one the Standard 7" has a grid standard sized 7" face but is not so standard on the mount as its for the AD600B and AD600BM https://bhpho.to/2PSvjya.

What could be the angle of coverage? I am trying to figure out if it would have enough spread with a 48" softbox to cover dancer group portraits (maybe 6 front row, 6 back row). Any suggestion appreciated.
Asked by: Syed
The extruded flash tube and glass dome creates an almost 180˚ spread of light, so filling a large modifier is not a problem. As for your particular application, a large translucent umbrella may be a better option than a softbox.

Can I use the Godox X Pro trigger for this strobe?
Asked by: Ninad
If you own a Godox X1R receiver, you may connect the receiver to the 1/8" (3.5mm) sync terminal on the side of the Interfit Badger Unleashed Battery-Powered Flash Head. This would allow you to use the Godox XPro Transmitter with the Interfit Badger Unleashed Battery-Powered Flash Head. However, do note this will only allow you to trigger the monolight; you will not be able to control the flash output with the Godox XPro remote, and you would not have TTL automatic flash output power. You would have to set the flash output power manually. If you need to control the flash output from the flash trigger, you would have to purchase the Interfit flash trigger for your usage needs.

Does this work with an Olympus OMD em10 ii?
Asked by: Jose
I don't know anything about your camera, but I can tell you that this light requires a separate trigger. Interfit has one for Nikon and Canon, and this one (Interfit S1 Manual Remote for all Cameras), which may be the one you need. It looks like the battery powered Badger may be backordered right now, but it's a great little light and may be worth the wait.
