Hi All,

Welcome to the Healthy Rips FIERCE thread!

In this post - we will be introducing our new upcoming Healthy Rips FIERCE convection technology vaporizer. Coming June, 2018!

We began the design and development our FIERCE during the summer and we have come a long way since then. We will be discussing the features of our upcoming FIERCE vaporizer - as well as posting pictures and a short video of our latest FIERCE prototype. Please keep in mind that this is a prototype and is not a finished or polished product (it’s a bit rugged). It has been assembled and modified by hand. This is not a production unit - so please don’t judge it by its aesthetics :). We still have several tweaks and adjustments to make - but the performance is awesome.

We are still in the development stages - therefore some of the information we are providing here is subject to minor changes as we progress.

Convection Technology
Isolated Air Path
Digital OLED Screen

Both bundles will include the Protective Cover, Accessories Attachment and your choice of Glass WPA or Glass Mouthpiece.

We have been very deliberate in our decisions on what features to include - and what features we sincerely believe are not in the best interest of our clients. We have anticipated some of the questions that you might have - and answered them here:

Why doesn't the FIERCE have ‘Pass through charging’ (the ability to use the vaporizer while it is charging)?
Answer: Pass through charging is bad for your battery - your battery will degrade much faster. With the FIERCE's extremely long battery life and swappable battery option - it is not necessary to have pass through charging. We feel that the longevity of the battery outweighs this benefit. Our FIERCE’s USB-C charging port is reversible, powerful and interchangeable. USB-C is the emerging standard and will be used on most - if not all of your latest and greatest devices.

Why Proprietary batteries instead of 18650’s?
Answer: Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries have a soft shell and are a safe alternative to 18650 batteries - but they must be soldered into the circuitry (not user replaceable). Our solution was to create a plastic battery pack with the LiPo battery soldered into the battery circuitry - making the battery pack user-replaceable. This solution provides a safer alternative to the replaceable hard-shell 18650 batteries. Our team has seen too many injuries from 18650 (metal hard-shell) batteries. They would not be the safest solution for our clients - and would be a potential liability for our company.

Why not include the charging dock and extra battery with the FIERCE?
Answer: We do :). But we also offer the FIERCE for sale without the charging dock and battery for those who want to use the FIERCE as a rechargeable vaporizer and simply replace the battery after its lifespan. Just unscrew the battery door with a penny and swap/replace the battery.

The next phases of our development process look like this: Implement the final tweaks. Do a small 100-200 unit FIERCE production run and get them into the hands of our testing team. Get one last round of feedback from our testing team. Make any further adjustments if necessary. Finalize the FIERCE, packaging, manual, accessories, etc. Release the FIERCE to the public in June, 2018.

Our test team includes several internal and external groups including many of the most respected people on this forum: @stickstones @Stu @PuffItUp @ohmygodimsohigh @Vape Dr. @Vitolo and others (sorry if we didn’t mention you). Some of these FC members have already demoed this FIERCE prototype while we were at the Champs trade show in Las Vegas. We have already started making some adjustments to the FIERCE prototype based on the invaluable feedback we received from them. They are welcome to chime-in here if they feel inclined :).

Whew! That all being said - please enjoy the following pictures and video of the Healthy Rips FIERCE prototype:

We hope you have thoroughly enjoyed the first look at our FIERCE :tup:

Target release date: June, 2018

All the Best!

Love the improvements with the battery system and USB-C charging is nice. Bowl size looks kinda big for just myself, but I'm sure there will be ways to make the bowl smaller. Perhaps a bowl screen will be included with the kit? Dosing capsules being included is dope. Interesting you guys decided to go with the same form factor as the fury 2. I like design of that glass MP, maybe there will be different stems to switch out in future? Im curious if the internals are similar in design to the fury 2 in terms of heating element and airpath.


Looks like a roided up fury, I can imagine this becoming my main portable for multiple people, considering the features. Very excited for the release of the fierce. After my experience with the fury 2 and healthyrips team in general I'm almost certainly going to be purchasing this, If the unit is free from any weird factory smells after some burnoffs/runs I'm gonna be a happy camper. Patiently waiting till then :) I'll be following the thread for updates!

Wow, great introduction. I am really looking forward to the release of the Fierce.

Was about to order a second Fury2 but since I am on a break until mid April, I will probably wait it out until the release of the Fierce.

My question is (hope I am not getting on your nerves with this) if you are releasing the Fierce in Europe from the start this time? As @VapoShop is already a european distributor of yours, I thought chances might be good. Because of the nature of your product, I prefer to avoid custom controls if possible although I was really happy with your service when I ordered my Fury2.

All the best with further development. I am really looking forward to hold a Fierce in my hands. :)

They edited their post just after I posted I mine, I checked twice before to post since this number was crazy!
Anytime you see such a load size statement, just automatically assume there is a decimal missing- it happens surprisingy often and always seems to cause a little confusion.
 
Interesting. Why are you going with the proprietary battery?

As someone with small fingernails, I'd really love to see the battery door design change. That style is always a PITA for me, and I don't normally carry around something that would fit in that slot.

Best of luck with the vape, hopefully it's even better than the fury 2 I own. Let me know if you guys ever need some outdoorman/disc golf type photos!

All USB-C is reversible lol. The cord goes in either way and you don't need to ever flip the end of the cord to get it to fit into the device.

Unless they've created something entirely new that will revolutionize computers and vapes alike

Note sure I get what's the big differences between this device and the Fury 2, it looks like a larger version because of a larger battery, rest is pretty much the same no?

With a 4000mah battery I'm wondering if reversible means that we can charge other devices using this device.

I owned an ecig that did this

Can we know more about that accessories attachment? Looks like a full glass mp, will love something like that on the fury 2.

I know we have the glass mp, but it isn't ideal for when you are out and about...
