Do you mean enclosed during use? or will the "hanging" chambers look as they do in your current pictures with just a hole with the herb sitting on a screen.I don't think it will be too bad because the chambers should be enclosed
Awesome. That's pretty quick and sounds like it will be a microdosing champ. I have my heater in my firewood 4 set up 3 clicks as I like getting through a bowl quickly and using it native. I hope you don't change the fact that 4 is right on the edge without going over. Can't wait to find out more.depends on size of load, herb quality, grind, temp setting, etc. I did a quick test last night on heat level 3 (out of 4) with some homegrown carnival. I don't have a good scale, so I had to measure out 0.8g, then divide it in half a few times to get 3 chambers with approx. 0.1g, 0.05g and 0.025g (not sure how accurate). The 0.025g was basically a pinch, and gave a good draw and a half and took 1 1/2 mins from start to last exhale. The 0.05g gave a couple more draws and took around 2 1/2 mins. The 0.1g took around 5 mins. If I crank it to level 4 0.1g would be quite a bit faster, closer to 3 mins, but also gets on the edge on combusting and doesn't taste as good as level 3. I may change the levels a bit still, but I do like the idea of keeping a level that might not taste quite as good but can get the job done real quickly if needed.
yes, but not ready yet
Both glass tubes and the ceramic "L joint" pull out for cleaning.
The heater enclosure in changing from glass to ceramic and the geometry is quite a bit different. It definitely gets more of a radiant heat contribution than fw4, but fw4, and a lot of other vapes, definitely also get some help from radiant heat. How much depends on geometry, draw speed, etc.
When the tray is pushed all the way in nothing is exposed and it is ready for vaping the 1st chamber. After the 1st chamber you pull the tray out 1 notch and vape the 2nd chamber, then pull out 1 more notch and vape the 3rd chamber (like shown in the last picture). For the 4th and 5th chambers you rotate the tray 180 degrees so that the spent chambers are on the inside and the tray doesn't overhang too much. When not in use you can easily push the tray in so nothing is exposed.Do you mean enclosed during use? or will the "hanging" chambers look as they do in your current pictures with just a hole with the herb sitting on a screen.
It won't have higher levels, but will definitely be much faster.As far as levels I guess I'm not super qualified to talk on this but a higher level heat setting for quick bowls would be nice but I'm usually midrange and prefer like 370-390 for temp of air hitting my herb.
fw5 will have only 3 heat levels instead of 4, but each level can be separately tweaked up or down (this time 4 clicks equals one full temp setting).I thought the fw4 levels were good w the +7-14 degrees w the trick (more than that was silly imo) was pretty dang good. I was typically on 3 or 4 for heat level and that provided a nice mix of flavor and vapor.
Hopefully will be selling units within 2 weeks.Been quiet here, no a problem just updates are fun.

I am in the same boat. I am intrigued with the new design but part of my soul dies when I think about the fact that I cannot buy a new FW3 or FW4 to replace my existing ones. The new design may be good but it appears to trash the stealth that I appreciate so much about the older units (I suspect the taste will be as good, so I don't concern myself there). To be honest, it's very easy to pop in a new capsule, so the ability to sequence in a new bowl isn't really a hot button issue for me.The new model seems like a home portable rather than a take out and about portable. It's definitely interesting. I can't deny I wish I could set up back to back bowls every single day! Very interesting concept.
