My top 10 favorite gadgets for Consuming cannabis.
By Bill Azin
The Volcano Digital has been one of the most popular vaporizers on the market for the past decade for a reason. Featuring the high-quality German construction and exceptional vapor quality for which Storz & Bickel are known, the Volcano Digital offers a seamless and satisfying experience. Beneath its unique cone-shaped design lies a powerful convection heating system that minimizes toxins and harmful by-products so the benefits of herb are experienced without the downsides associated with smoking. Hot air is forced through the heater to vaporize herb all while filling a removable balloon bag with pure, clean-tasting vapor. After the balloon is inflated the valve can be completely detached and separated from the device to be enjoyed from anywhere. The balloon allows for vapor storage for up to 8 hours and lasts for 50 to 100 uses. An upgrade to the Volcano Classic, this forced-air desktop unit features a digital control interface with an LED screen displaying temperature.
Many call the Firefly 2 the “iPhone of vaporizers,” and for good reason. Firefly 2 is the brainchild of a former Apple designer, owing to its zen design, groundbreaking materials, and intuitive touch controls. Like the iPhone, the Firefly 2 has a minimal learning curve right out of the box and performs at a very high level. The Firefly 2 vaporizer utilizes convection heating, a lightweight magnesium alloy build, mobile app technology, and a borosilicate glass vapor path to blaze a whole new path for portable vaping. Firefly 2 is rivaled only by similarly advanced portable vapes like the PAX 3.

The heat controller appears to hold the temps very steady.
Many concerns that many have is, the pumping lever fails at one point making it hard to manually press.
Well that’s not the case, as soon you learn to release the plates just enough so you don’t need to pump the constantly each and every time. Regardless the pump is extremely easy and it requires hardly any effort to fully compress.
