From the makers of the ultra-portable Fenix Mini convection vaporizer comes another product that combines superior vaporization with a small and compact form factor. The Fenix Svaty is a relatively small device measuring only at around 3.94 inches tall. Its dimensions allow its users to easily stash the Fenix Svaty away in their bag, pocket, and even carry it in the palm of their hands. This means that you can take the Fenix Svaty with you almost anywhere you are and consume your select dry herb strains almost anywhere you may be. That said, the Fenix Svaty is intended for the consumption of various botanical plant matter – both recreational and medical. The Fenix Svaty uses a 1650mAh battery to power its dry herb chamber up allowing you significant sessions in between charges. It uses a micro-USB charging cable to recharge the battery allowing you to juice it up almost anywhere you are. The battery is paired with a precision temperature control setting that lets you dial down to your preferred temperature level. The running temperature level as well as other relevant information is displayed on an OLED screen so you can monitor what happens in your session even from a distance. The Fenix Svaty delivers heat in the form of convection technology to cleanly vaporize your select dry herb strains without having to reach the point of combustion. The Fenix Svaty uses a stainless-steel dry herb chamber which further ensures that your botanicals are heated cleanly and will not have any weird taste or smell. The Fenix Svaty overall is a great device but it may not be everybody’s cup of tea.
The Fenix Svaty’s precision temperature controls may be an intimidating feature especially for beginners who are simply starting their vape journey. Typically, beginners will not have a detailed idea of how temperature affects their sessions and how each temperature level may extract certain active ingredients from their dry herb strains. Moreover, like the Fenix Mini, the Fenix Svaty uses convection heating despite having a small battery capacity which will drain the power faster than average dry herb vaporizers that uses conduction heating instead. So, if you find that you’re interested in what the Fenix Svaty has to offer but are on the fence because of its inherent downsides, this review is for you. Here at VapoCorner, we aim to provide you with detailed vaporizer reviews to help you get to know the vaporizer you’re eyeing for better and find out if this is the right device for you before you splash the cash. We do understand that buying and investing in a vaporizer is a financial commitment so we want to help you make the best decision when buying a vaporizer. We’ll talk about some of the features the Fenix Svaty has to offer as well as some real-life pros and cons. So, let’s not waste any time and get right on in the review.
The brand has been making waves in the vaporizer industry as a company that offers and basically focuses on vaporizers that use the best heating technology. For the uninitiated, convection heating in vaporizers is the means of vaporizing your materials (typically herbs) by using the heat coming from hot air. Most portable vaporizers on the market, even dry herb vaporizers, use conduction heating. Compared to convection heating, conduction heating heats your herbs by using the heat coming from a heating element, usually the walls of a dry herb chamber or oven. It does effectively vaporize your herbs but when done incorrectly, it has the potential of burning your materials causing combustion and smoke. When this happens, you’re as good as smoking your herbs and are inhaling the product of combustion. On the other hand, because convection heating heats the ground botanicals without exposing the herbs and even causing direct contact to the heating element, it significantly reduces the risks of combustion and gives you clean and flavorful vapors overall. Furthermore, because the use of a convection oven in a vaporizer uses the power of hot air instead of the heat coming from the heating element, it does take time and does not abruptly heat your herbs. Because of this decent temperature ramping, the Fenix Svaty allows you to experience the more delicate active ingredients from your dry herbs. These include the flavonoids and the terpenes that give your botanicals its natural flavor and aroma. When heated abruptly, these active ingredients are destroyed and you immediately get to the more potent effects that are released when you expose the herbs to a higher temperature level.
And while using convection heating technology might be great for your herbs, it does take a toll on your battery. Because of the Fenix Svaty’s small and compact dimensions, it’s only allowed to carry as much battery as it could. That said, the Fenix Svaty is outfitted with a 1650mAh battery capacity which may not be enough if you’re a heavy consumer. From our testing, Fenix Svaty’s battery can yield an average of 45 to 60 minutes of continuous use. That’s because using hot air takes a lot of power from your battery, so make sure to take this into consideration when making your purchase. If you’re a beginner who can make do with short sessions with herbs packed in smaller doses, the Fenix Svaty can give you lasting sessions that can be spread to a full day of vaping. However, if you’re a heavy consumer who typically likes to heat your herbs at a higher temperature level, you might find that you need to plug the Fenix Svaty several times withing the day.
The Fenix Svaty uses precision temperature settings allowing you to personalize your sessions depending on your needs and on your preference. The Fenix Svaty uses a temperature range that run from 320° F to 410° F. This gives you a good spread of temperature levels where you can expose your dry herbs to get varied results. The thing about precision temperature vaporizers is that they’re often seen as vaporizers designed form advanced consumers. And while they require some level of understanding of how your herbs (and some particular strains) react to heat, it does get fairly easy the more you get used to it. That’s why some consumers may see the Fenix Svaty as an advanced-type of vaporizer where one has to have some mastery of the temperature levels. And although this is true, the learning curve the Fenix Svaty offers is fairly minimal. The temperature level can be adjusted using the directional “up” and “down” buttons just right beside the OLED screen. As with self-explanatory devices, pressing the up button allows you to increase the temperature level while pressing the down button decreases the temperature level. This simple and straightforward means of adjusting the temperature level of your device allows even beginners to take full advantage of the Fenix Svaty’s precision temperature controls.
The lower temperature settings make for a great option when you want to enjoy flavorful sessions while the higher temperature levels are great for reaping the psychoactive compounds in your herbs. That’s why most beginners typically stay within the lower temperature levels because it creates a smooth experience for when you want to enjoy some rest and relaxation with your sessions. The higher temperature levels are better suited for sessions that really melt your face off. The temperature levels in between allow you to get anything from deep sleep to deep relaxation. That said, the Fenix Svaty is a great device to invest in if what you’re after is some accuracy and precision in your sessions. It may take some getting used to but as long as you’re willing to go through the learning curve, the Fenix Svaty can be a great vaping companion. If what you’re looking for is more of a plug and play experience, you should be looking for portable dry herb vaporizers that have a single heat setting. The Fenix Svaty offers some level of personalization and experimentation allowing even beginners who aren’t afraid of a little adventure to enjoy the various effects of their botanical plant matter.
With some of the major features out of the way, let’s talk about what minor features the Fenix Svaty brings to the table. First is the Fenix Svaty’s stainless-steel herb chamber. Because the Fenix Svaty uses a convection oven, it has to compensate with its chamber to make up for its slow heating. The folks working on the Fenix Svaty used stainless steel to help give the Fenix Svaty a boost in heating your herbs. Stainless-steel is a great conductor of heat and the perfect catalyst for energy. Another feature of the Fenix Svaty is its silicone mouthpiece. Using silicone for the mouthpiece lets you easily remove and replace it but if the Fenix Svaty gets too hot, the mouthpiece may give off a weird taste so make sure to let the Fenix Svaty rest in between sessions before you fire it up for another go.
