So this is an aggregate Firefly Vaporizer review. This vaporizer is compatible with dry herbs. Again, a little description on how I do my reviews. Basically I take some time and go over reviews of the product and I read what people like about the product and don’t like about the product. I let you know the most common pros and cons, as well as any other little things that come up. But it’s done so that you don’t have to spend a bunch of time watching different videos or reading a bunch of customer reviews.
So let’s start with the aesthetics of the product. This is a nice looking vaporizer, definitely considered a portable. It’s a little on the heavy side weighing in around 280g. As a comparison, the Pax by Ploom is probably one of the lightest portables at 90g. I mean we’re not talking about lugging around a brick, but by comparison it’s a heavier vape. It fits in the hand nicely and is pretty sleek and fairly discreet.
Now let’s talk performance. It’s super easy to load up. The top plate is magnetic, so you just remove it, load up the chamber, and replace the top plate. The construction is interesting in that there are groves in the top plate that the vapor flows through. It actually provides an excellently smooth and great tasting smoking experience. After a few draws though you’re definitely going to have to remove the plate and brush out the channels because there will be some debris that will be blocking them. Not a biggie though.
There’s a bit of a technique, or learning curve depending on how you look at it, for this vaporizer. There’s a button on the side that starts the heating process, and you’ll want to hold it for about 8 seconds, let go for a second or 2 and then fire it up again for around 4 seconds then take your rip. This will vary depending on how thick or heavy of a smoke you’re interested in. So you’ll definitely have to spend some time experimenting a little to figure out what your preferences are, but once you figure it out it’s smooth sailing from then on.
There are a few pros and cons with the battery. First off it’s pretty cool because it features a removable battery, so you can have a few batteries to make sure you always have a fully charged backup on hand. You can also get an external battery charger so you don’t have to use the Firefly to charge it. The batteries also charge really quickly, usually around 45 minutes from dead to full capacity. The only draw back is that the battery doesn’t last super long. You’ll probably get around two full chambers worth of battery life. Now this is also dependant on how you work the vaporizer as I was talking about above. The longer you preheat, the more battery you’ll draw. But based on the 8 second hold, 2 second release and 4 second hold example above, you’ll get the 2 chamber, or around 20 rip, life out of the battery.
The most commons cons about this are: the learning curve, the low battery life, and the price.
The most common pros are: easy to use and clean, good quality, and excellent taste.
Overall this is a really highly rated portable vaporizer and one of the most popular out there, and with good reason. Despite the learning curve this is a vaporizer definitely worth recommending. I recommend this store to buy the Firefly Vaporizer, it’s an authorized dealer and they offer free shipping anywhere in North America.
