We have been testing out the Wolkenkraft FX Mini convection vaporizer for the last few weeks. I was looking forward to trying the FX Mini out after completing our review on the Wolkenkraft FX+ vaporizer recently.
I enjoyed using the FX+, however, the FX Mini has full digital control and it is more portable. Let’s see how good it is.
The First Impression of the Wolkenkraft FX Mini Vaporizer
The Wolkenkraft FX Mini is a true convection dry herb vaporzier. It comes nicely packaged, making the impression of a quality product.
The FX Mini is nice and small, only 81mm tall, 50mm wide and 27.3mm thick. As a result of the small size, it fits very easily into your hand and it is quite discreet.
As you look at the vaporizer, you can’t help noticing the glass mouthpiece. It is made out of thick glass and you can take it out for cleaning as you can see below.
The Wolkenkraft FX Mini makes a great first impression, let’s have a look at what you get in the kit.

How to Use the Wolkenkraft FX Mini Vaporizer
This little vaporizer has full digital control and it is as simple to use as it gets. As a first step, it is best to put it on the charger before the first use. Let it charge fully to make sure the battery is conditioned.
After you’ve charged the battery, you can proceed to pack the chamber.
Remove the block with the mouthpiece in it to expose the stainless steel baking chamber.
The chamber is easy to access and pack with ground herbs. Make a note not to pack it too tight so the air can flow through your herbs without too much resistance.
Put the mouthpiece back on the vaporizer and you are good to go.
Press the power button 5 times in a row to turn on the FX Mini. The digital display on the top of the vape will turn on and show the Wolkenkraft logo for a second or so.
When the screen comes on, set your desired temperature using the + and – buttons. You can set your temperature by the degree between 160 and 221 Celsius (320 to 430 Fahrenheit).
The light around the mouthpiece is a steady red color while the vaporizer is heating up. It turns blue once your set temperature is reached in about 25 seconds or so.
At this point, you are ready to vaporize.
The OLED display shows you the battery charge level, your temperature and a count down session timer. A session goes for 240 seconds (4 minutes) after which the FX Mini will shut down automatically. Simply press the power button 5 times again to turn it back on for another session as needed.
For best practice and longevity of your FX Mini, it is best to wait for 3 to 5 minutes between vaping sessions to avoid the battery to overheat and deteriorate quicker.
Our Final Thoughts on the FX Mini
We really liked using the Wolkenkraft FX Mini and found it to be performing very well.
It is easy to use as well as to clean it. I have been using it fairly regularly and find it to be very suitable for frequent use.
The 1600 mAh battery powers through about 6 or so sessions before you have to charge it. To add to the list, the FX Mini produces big clouds of great tasting vapor.
I don’t have a lot of negative things to say about this vaporizer if any. Perhaps the only negative I came across is that the cleaning brush in the kit is dropping bristles and not quite usable as a result. Other than that, we have been pretty impressed by this unit.
In my view, the Wolkenkraft FX Mini is definitely worth checking out if you are on the market for a portable convection vaporizer.
