As the second edition of the popular Firefly vaporizer, this has been a product that people have been enjoying using for quite some time now!
However, the latest edition to the family – the Firefly 2 – offers a sleeker, smaller body and greater balance than the previous model. With the size cut by around one third and also a lighter model than the previous Firefly, this offers a new change and something a little different. If you already own the original Firefly and fancy an upgrade, this does just about everything you would expect of it – and more!
So, what makes the Firefly 2 such a worthwhile piece of hardware?
Stronger than Ever
One thing that many people noted about the original Firefly was that although it was very good and an industry favorite, it seemed to lack a bit of durability. It was very easy to damage in many aspects and this put a lot of people off it – too many videos were seen of damaged Firefly Vaporizers that no longer worked to their original capacity.
Thankfully, the Firefly 2 fixes this – and then some. It’s probably one of the most easy to operate, low maintenance vaporizers you are ever likely to find. Not only is it really easy to manage and use, but it’s a lot harder to damage. The shell is tougher (despite being lighter) and it also offers more resistance to any cracks that may occur over time.
Filling and emptying the chamber is extremely easy and the device can be kept super clean with just a simple brush down once you use it each time. This will make a big difference on how much use you can get out of the vaporizer itself, further adding value to the Firefly 2.
Faster to Use
Some of us just don’t have any patience, and this is who the Firefly 2 Vaporizer seems to be aimed at!
The old Firefly was quick to heat up, but now this bad-boy can get to the temperature that you set in 3-5 seconds. It’s super fast to load up and now you can start using it within a matter of seconds. Other vaporizers can take a fair bit of time to load up and start firing, but the Firefly 2 makes light work of these problems and instead introduces a much simpler, more balanced loading time.
Also, the speed does not affect the quality or duration of the battery – it still lasts as long, maybe even longer, than the original. Many portable vaporizers can feel a bit cheap on the battery front but if you charge this up in the morning, it should last you throughout the day unless you vape like a demon! :)
Taste the Quality
Another major improvement with the Firefly 2 is that the taste is even more pleasurable to enjoy now. The on-demand heating gets the party quickly started for a fast session, meaning you don’t have to waste any herbs because it takes too long to heat up. Now you can treat it like an e-cig, going for short bursts of enjoyment instead of having to do one big slog all at once like many other vaporizers are forcing you to do.
If you want to get the most natural and robust taste of your dry herbs or wax material, then this is the perfect place to start – the dynamic convection this unit offers really helps that flavor come through. The mouthpiece is very comfortable and conveniently located as well.
Perfect in any Environment
One thing about using a portable vaporizer or vape pen is that they aren’t the most discrete tools in the world – but the Firefly 2 blends in well with most other portable units. It might not look exactly like an e-cigarette but it’s a lot closer than many of the other models out there on the table today, and it also does a great job of concealing the smell coming out of the unit.
This means you can use this unit pretty easily whether you are alone at home or you are out and about in the streets – just don’t go around blowing vapor clearly into the faces of other people! ;) That aside, it works very-very well under any circumstance.
Easy to Use
The perfect solution to any vapor requirements, the Firefly 2 can go from 340-420 Fahrenheit and can also vaporize concentrates at up to 500 Degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it easy to get the finest balance between vapor potency and taste, meaning you can get a lasting application or go for big strong shotgun bursts – it’s entirely up to your preference.
Plenty to Use
Another big bonus of the Firefly 2 is that it comes with plenty of nice little accessories. With two swappable batteries you can make sure you don’t always need a charge. Many vapes just come with one battery so this makes a nice compelling little change when you can just swap out the battery and avoid waiting times for charging.
Another nice touch was the addition of the two little “stabby” tools that assist in cleaning the unit. These little toothpick like instruments are strong and give you an easy way to clean out any debris that gets stuck in the chamber or mouthpiece after usage. You can also use the included little multi-side brush to clean it out and the isopropyl alcohol wipes to make sure there is never any stains or lingering tastes from previous use.
How about charging the unit? You just need a standard USB slot for charging the unit. This makes it easy to charge on the go, and you can recharge just about anywhere there is a standard USB connection.
Overall, the Firefly 2 is one of the best portable vaporizers on the market at the moment. It ticks virtually every box – cost-effective, easy to use, simple to enjoy, perfect for long-term use and concealed in public – what more could you ask for?
