The Fiber Fox Mini 4S Active Clad Alignment Splicer is the smallest lightweight fiber fusion splicer. The device runs off two Lithium-Ion batteries and has the ability to space fiber up to 5mm. Due to its portability, it can fit in tight spaces, which makes it ideal for both indoor and outdoor environments where fiber must be spliced as well as terminated. And with its convenient universal holder, it makes the job easier than ever.

I was shocked when I realized that it took only a few seconds to heat up! The heating time of 18 seconds makes it the fastest 4S active fusion splicer on the market. And even though it has all of the most advanced cutting and cleaving features, the batteries (included) offer 260 cycles before needing replacements, making it super convenient for those long days.

Because it has a continuous heating feature that keeps this mini workhorse going, it helps me easily get through all of my fiber splicings. But then again, with its super quick heat up time, it doesn’t slow down the job.

As someone who uses this splicer often, I was even more surprised with its full touch screen. This makes it super convenient to set the machine up to fit my needs. But after I used it, I really liked how easy it is for me to carry around this machine without worrying about dropping or breaking it because of the tempered glass over the touch screen.

If your work in an industry that requires you to run our fiber 24/7, then using the Fiber Fox Mini 4S should be a no-brainer.

The Fiber Fox Mini 4S is also compatible with all major brands. Wich makes it easier than trying to find printer ink.

The FiberFox Mini 4S does precisely what it promises and more.

However, I still can’t get over how fast this little machine is. It only weighs 1.43 KG without the battery, but it still splices fibers in six seconds. I’m pretty sure it’s the fastest on the market.

Even better, this darn thing is just about indestructible. I’ve dropped it more times than I care to count. And it may have even been in a puddle. But it’s still working like brand new!

It really is the perfect size unit for me. I travel a lot of the time, so something that is easy to transport is exactly what I need. It works at high altitudes when there’s humidity or crazy temperatures. That alone makes me feel safer when I forget it in the truck overnight.

Oh! And it was also nice that it came with its own thermal stripper. This is perfect because I always either lose mine or forget that in the truck too.

Overall the Fiber Fox Mini 4S is an excellent splicer. It’s easy to use and has a ton of added features! I’m so glad I got one. It makes my job that much easier.

I would recommend the Fiber Fox Mini 4S for anyone who needs a reliable, fast, and effective unit without breaking the bank. This is worth every penny you spend on it!
