Standard Features

Choose your coil size and heating profile

image2

Choose your coil size to set your Flux Deluxe's heating profile


16mm is the standard and least aggressive  coil size.  It has the slowest heating time. 


15mm is the middle size. As you'd expect, this coil heats more aggressively than the 16mm coil but not as aggressively as the 14mm coil. 


14mm is the hottest coil size. It heats aggressively - torch-like, but evenly. This coil is not for everyone - it heats aggressively and has a small margin for error! 

Change Batteries Easily

image3

The Flux deluxe uses three (3) rechargeable 18650 batteries*, in series. The lid is attached magnetically, and you can quickly remove it to change batteries.


 The 18650 battery is the most commonly used rechargeable battery in the world, and is available from online retailers (Amazon, WallMart, Illumn.com, etc.) and also from your local e-cigarette vape store.


*Use any three identical, flat top, unprotected 18650 batteries. Batteries are NOT included!


With an extra set of batteries and  an external charger (not included), it is possible to always have a set charged and ready to go.





Analog Power Relay for Reliability

image4

New for Summer 2019, the Flux Deluxe now simplifies its power circuitry by using a tiny, sealed, analog, electro-mechanical power relay. 


This analog relay has several advantages over the solid state relay it replaces. If gives the heater a slower ramp time, which improves flavor and extraction. Additionally, the analog part simplifies the circuit and should prove to be more reliable, too.


Finally, the relay also has the effect of improving the heat penetration of each coil size. Keep this in mind if you are thinking of getting a 14mm coil. All-flower users may find the 14mm coil to be too hot on the second (and subsequent) heating cycles of a given load, requiring strategies like pulling before the second click.

Custom Designed Circuit Board with SMD Components

image5

The Flux Deluxe was designed from scratch in October 2018 to heat vapcaps. It made its debut in December 2018 and has been continually refined and improved since then. 


At the heart of the Flux Deluxe is its custom PCB, which I designed. The compact PCB enables the Flux Deluxe to carry out its mission of heating vapcaps to perfection. 

Mains Battery Charger Included

image6

One 12VDC / 1A mains battery charger w/LED charging status indicator is included. 


The battery charger plugs into the Flux Deluxe's DC 

NOTE: You must operate the Flux Deluxe from its batteries. This charger is ONLY for charging.


Choices include US, UK, EU, AUS/NZ, or 12V automotive/cigarette lighter.


Additional chargers available for $10 each

Safety and Circuit Protections

image7

  • PPTC power fuses, shown above,  protect against shorts and reverse polarity. The two 4.5A PPTC fuses provide 9A of protection. If faulted, they are reset automatically by cycling the power circuit.


  • A thermal fuse positioned next to the coil disconnects the battery when it senses temps in excess of 110°C, protecting against overheating. If tripped, the thermal fuse automatically resets when its temp drops below 110°C (typically less than 30 seconds).


  • A tactile switch signal filter protects all four MOSFETS in the circuit from the noise causes by the tactile switch. This reduces the risk of MOSFET failure and extends the life of the heater.

Flux Deluxe Cases Colors

Additional Information

Choose from the case colors shown above. All cases come with a silicone gasket and pre-installed magnets at each corner.


The case colors shown above are representative examples. The actual color of your case may vary slightly from what is shown.


The Dark Green color is similar to Forest Green. It is NOT Olive Drab.


The cases are generally uniform, but may occasionally include slight variations and/or artifacts from the machining process.

Optional Features

External On/Off Switch

image9

A taller switch and well-aligned hole allow even easier access to the on/off switch. 


An on/off/on version of the switch is also available, making this compatible with the optional battery meter.


When purchased with a new heater: $10 

Upgrade to your existing FD heater: $15 + shipping



Top Mount Temperature Control

image10

Put temperature control at your fingertip for easy access and on-the-fly adjustments. 

The temperature control feature offers a narrow but useful range of adjustment.


This feature requires the use of the solid state power relay and associated PCB. The price reflects the extra cost of these additional components and their installation.


When purchased with a new heater: $60


Note: This feature is being phased out. The new electromechanical power relay is more reliable and delivers vapor of a similar, if not better, quality. I am continuing to offer this feature for those that really want it, but if asked I recommend NOT choosing this option.

Cherry Wood Case

image11

Cherry wood case custom made for Fluxer Heaters by Berkshire Box Mods. This case is shown with optional artwork, the standard cherry case is free of artwork. Available in standard unfinished cherry (bare) or with a hand-applied orange oil finish (an additional $5). 


Wooden case prices:

Cherry wood case: $30 bare; $35 rubbed oil finish

Cherry wood case w/Fluxer Logo (much smaller logo version also available): $40 bare; $45 rubbed oil finish

Cherry wood case with custom art: $65+, some intellectual property restrictions apply. Please contact me for more info.




Under Glass LEDs for New Heaters

image12

Surface mounted LEDs under the glass insert light up when you activate the heater. Red is the default color for this optional feature, other colors may be possible for an additional fee.


When purchased with a new heater: $10 

Upgrade to your existing FD heater: Not Available


Side Glass LEDs for Existing Heaters

image13

An LED mounted inside the heater compartment lights up the glass when you activate the heater. Similar to the Under Glass LEDs for new heaters, but a bit less bright due to LED location. 


Red is the default color for this optional feature, but blue, green, yellow, and white are also available by request.


Upgrade to your existing FD heater: $10 + shipping

Built-In Battery Meter for New Heaters

image14

New Flux Deluxe heaters can be ordered with an optional built-in battery meter! 

Additional circuitry and a three position on/off/on switch allow you to display battery status via the stock green/red LED.   


Push the switch towards the battery pack to momentarily activate the meter, release to dismiss. 

Pull the switch toward the front to turn on the heater, as with the standard on/off switch.


If the meter displays:

Green LED only, available power is  > 11.6V

Both LEDs in proportion, power is 11.5V to 10.7V 

Red LED only, available power is < 10.6V (i.e., time to recharge or swap batteries)


When purchased with a new heater: $15*

Upgrade to your existing FD heater: Not Available
