Fury 2 Disassembly - First Vape Teardown of 2018!
The Fury 2 vaporizer from Healthy Rips was one of the last vapes released before the New Year and vapor clouds on par with units 2-5x larger make it a prime contender for vape of the year 2017. To figure out what makes this bad boy so furious we broke one down beyond recognition for all the exclusive details about materials, build and internal parts!
WARNING: Do not attempt this vape teardown, any disassembly other than the mouthpiece will void your warranty.
Opening The Chassis
Removing The Chassis
With the screws removed we're now able to take off the outer shell of the Fury 2 and get to the good stuff.
This is our first look at the circuit board, battery and heater assembly.
Internals and Shell
The Fury is among the smallest herbal vaporizers released so far at only 2" x 1" x 3".
Not a single centimeter of internal space is wasted; the electronics and heating element are nearly a 1:1 fit in the shell.
Inside the Shell
RIP Fury 2
This is it; the point of no return. Another quick reminder to NOT follow along with our teardowns.
Snip snip! We had to cut the wires between the heater, circuit board and battery to remove everything from the inner enclosure.
Circuit Board Removal
Li-ion LiPo Battery
The Healthy Rips Fury 2 is powered by a single 18500
Lithium Ion Lithium Polymer battery with a 5.92Wh capacity which equates to about 1600mAh. The 18500 is the smaller brother of the 18650 we most commonly see in portable vaporizers. 18500 batteries have the same voltage output of the 18650 for the same amount of power to the heater though the run time is typically a little lower due to the smaller length. We get around 40 minutes of runtime with the Fury with a full 90 minute charge which isn't far off most single 18650 vaporizers.
Edit: We originally thought the Fury 2's battery was lithium-ion but Healthy Rips gave us the heads up that it's actually lithium polymer, an even safer chemistry. Instead of the liquid electrolyte and rigid metal case of standard lithium-ion cells, lithium polymer batteries use a polymer electrolyte in a flexible polymer laminate foil to prevent any possibility of explosion.
Heating Assembly Removal
Accessing the Heating Chamber
Heating Chamber Removal
With the fiber insulation removed we're down to the heater wrapped with an inner layer of thermal tape. On the left you can see the dry herb loading chamber; the chamber is conductive and heated air rising through your material is diffused by the openings in the screen for uniform convection heating.
I dont see a good way to take apart this element but I really want to check it out. Time to pull out the dremel!

Heating Element Removal
Once we pull open the interior of the heating assembly we finally gain access to the heating element itself. The Fury 2 uses a resistive coil heating element, a style which is becoming more and more popular. Resistant metal coils provide ultra-quick heat up times and the most efficient use of battery, ideal for pocket portables. Air enters the Fury 2 through the base and travels up an isolated tube where the heating coil is contained. The heated coil controls the temperature of both the loading chamber and the air passing through it for a combination of conduction and convection extraction, the best of both worlds for flavor and vapor output.
We're glad to see palm sized vapes finally hitting performance in league with larger portables. The Fury 2 heats in less than 30 seconds, hits surprisingly hard and the metal unibody feels far classier and more durable than a plastic chassis. The materials all feel high quality and the assembly itself was top notch with clean, sturdy connections. It's clear the design team put a lot of thought into which parts to use and the perfect placement to keep everything as tiny as possible, this is one of the smallest vapes we've used and there isn't a mm to spare within the chassis.
