Meet the Flix™, Fluxer Heaters new, small induction heating device, designed for use with Dynavap vaporizers.
The Flix shares a lot in common with the Flux Deluxe, but it also has a few features that are uniquely its own.
Base price: US$115, plus shipping*.
Power supply NOT included.
Small footprint: The Flix is housed in an anodized aluminum enclosure cut on a CNC mill. The enclosure is approximately 3.75" x 1.5" x 1.5", or 97mm x 38mm x 38mm . The Flix weighs ~6 oz, or about 165g.
Classy design, available in multiple colors: Available in Black, Gun Metal, Dark Green, Blue, Purple, and Orange. The prototype shown in the above image is raw/unfinished aluminum.
Well made in the USA: Custom designed circuit boards populated with high quality components, hand made by me to my own high standards: I build all Fluxer Heaters by hand, using proprietary circuit boards I designed myself. I solder (aka, "flow") all of the circuit boards in my own reflow oven, I wind the coils, I cut the glass for the inserts, etc. Fluxer Heaters are boutique, hand made devices. I build them with very few compromises in design or construction, and intend them to be used and enjoyed for a long time. They are built to last.
Easy to activate: The Flix can be activated in one of two ways: by pressing the Dynavap downwards (as with the Flux Deluxe), or by pressing a push button.
Use it on a surface, or hold in your hand: The Flix is small enough and light enough to be held in your hand during use. It's small size and light weight make it very easy to bring the Flix to your water piece, instead of bringing your Dynavap to the IH.
Flexible power sources, part 1: With the appropriate cable, the Flix will operate from any 8VDC to 12VDC power source capable of delivering 10A or more of current. You can power the Flix from a mains powered "brick," a car battery, a portable battery pack, or even from a Flux Deluxe. It's very friendly that way.
Flexible power sources, part 2: Because the Flix will run on less than 10VDC, your Dynavap just became capable of delivering better flavor and larger clouds. Using a variable voltage power supply*, you can lower the Flix's operating voltage to less than 8VDC, which dramatically extends heating times while also reducing power. Say hello to flavor country.
IMPORTANT: The Flix does NOT include a power supply! This decision was made to save you money, while also providing more options for powering the device. I will be posting some exciting information about your power choices soon.

*Shipping: US $15 ; Canada $20 ; UK/EU/AUS/NZ $40 priority (recommended method at present) ; in pre-pandemic times, First Class Package International was a more affordable method for international shipment (at $25) but that method relies on commercial air travel and therefore is NOT recommended until COVID-19 travel restrictions are completely lifted. Sorry.

The Flix combines clean lines with simple, direct functionality.
From top left: Dark Green, Blue, Black, Raw, Gun Metal, Purple, and Orange
The Flix uses the same coil and IH circuit as the Flux Deluxe, including the under-the-coil tactile switch and LEDs.
The Flix also featureas a top mounted push button for activation.Use either, as you prefer.
The Flix is small, but it still includes a small corner magnet rest for your Dynavap. The aluminum even body acts as a heat sink, reducing cool down time.
The design is my own, and I make each Flix by hand, from the best components I can source, to my own high standards. Internal circuitry and Dynavap 2018M shown for illustative purposes.
12VDC Automotive Cigarette Lighter Adapter
Power the Flix from your car, boat, or other 12VDC source!
For responsible use only!
Add Flux Deluxe-style vent holes and a machined "ring of bling" around the heater hole for an additional $20
Customize your Flix with Flux Deluxe-style machined details for an additional $20.
Customze your Flix with optional all blue under coil LEDs for an additional $10
NOTE: Blue LEDs draw more current than other colors, so only 3 blue LEDs are used in this configuration. I used brighter LEDs to compensate for this.
Customze your Flix with optional all green under coil LEDs for an additional $10
Customze your Flix with two pairs of blue and red under coil LEDs for an additional $10
Customze your Flix with an optional rainbow of under coil LEDs (1x green, 1x blue, and 2x red) for an additional $10.
Customze your Flix with the maximum number of green LEDs: a green power on LED and green under coil LEDs. With this option, the acrylic trim illumination around the base stays green when on and adds some red when the heater is active.
NOTE: Although a green case is pictured above, it isn't necessary for this option
Customze your Flix with this slow changing "color wheel" LED. It takes a full 45 seconds for this LED to slowly transform from one color to the next until it completes its cycle. It's very soothing. With this option, the acrylic trim illumination around the base does not change colors when the heater is active.
The video above shows the base LED slowly changing colors.
