Welcome back to BigDaddySmoke’s Review Friday! Today, we’ll be doing a review on a versatile and sophisticated vaporizer which is the Firefly 2.
The Firefly 2 is a 2-in-1 vaping device that allows you to vape both dry herb and concentrates. The exterior is made up of durable magnesium alloy that provides substance and portability. In comparison, the Firefly 2 weighs lighter than its predecessor.
It feels smooth and comfortable to the grip, and the exterior is sturdy despite its weight and size. The vapor path is clean, made up of high-grade borosilicate glass. There’s no worry about getting toxins from the mouthpiece as well since created with food-grade Triton polymer.
The magnetic cover has a quartz window that allows you to see your herb and concentrates as you vape. It’s a satisfying show of vapor, and there is no need to second-guess when you need to load your vaporizer. The magnet is also strong enough to keep the lid in place even if you place the Firefly 2 inside your pocket.
Charging is fast and efficient. You only need 45 minutes to fully charge the unit. It may not last long beyond 6-8 vape sessions because of the standby mode, but you have the replacement battery to cover this.
Another unique feature about the Firefly 2 is that it’s ready to use on the go. With a simple contact on the touch-sensitive sensors, the unit will activate and is ready to use once it lights up to a steady green. With a 3-second heat-up time, you can almost immediately start vaping the by taking a drag through the mouthpiece.
You have 6 + 1 temperature presets, which you can program through the mobile app:
The device will stay at the preset temperature every time you use it and no matter how long you press the button. However, be careful when you set it to “concentrates.” This can cause burning and combustion of your herbs.
Because the vapor path is made of borosilicate glass, your hits are pure and full of flavor. There is a heavy drag to it, but others find it a minor inconvenience when looking at the overall experience. You do have to be careful about the size and packing of your herbs. A coarse crumble from your fingers is ideal as opposed to grinding. Small-sized herbs tend to burn fast and can affect the taste of your vape. Overpacking can also change the flavor due to poor heat distribution.
The same goes for concentrates. Use the recommended size and amount as too much concentrate in the chamber won’t vaporize well. Do note that because of its small size and temperature limit, you won’t get that much effect from your dabs as compared with what you’ll get from your herbs.
Cleaning the Firefly 2 is very easy. You can use the included alcohol wipes, or paper towels dabbed in isopropyl alcohol. It doesn’t take long to wipe the unit clean. Once the device cools down, just wipe away the grime, and it’s good for the next use. The concentrate pads are also replaceable, so there’s no worry of getting concentrate build-up inside the chamber.
The size and bulk of the Firefly 2 do not score high on the discreetness. We highly advise that you only use this in public where vaping herbs is not that much of a big deal. However, it’s perfect for an enjoyable session in private either solo or with frineds.
The Firefly 2 is highly recommended for people who wish to combine technology and sophistication with their vaping experience. The price of this 2-in-1 handheld vaporizer is a worthy investment for those who wish to have the modern convenience of enjoying herbs and concentrates.
