The Firefly 2 is one of the most well-known vaporizers for a reason. Well, many reasons: Convection heating, touch-sensor buttons, and special materials (some undisclosed by the maker) to name just three remarkable things about this portable vaporizer for dry herb.
But like the universe, the more you discover about the Firefly 2, the more you realize how little you know. It can be a little much.
If you’re wondering what, in a nutshell, all the fuss is about, we boiled it down to the 6 essential ways that the Firefly 2 has put a dent in the vaporizer universe.
A Lighter Build
Firefly 2 may be heavy on specs and build quality, but this portable vaporizer for dry herb is 55% lighter than its predecessor, the Firefly.
So what does weight matter?
You’ll notice the lesser density doesn’t burden your pocket. Likewise it’s easier to handle when vaping.
Galileo would argue that the lighter vaporizer will accelerate slower if dropped, and therefore be less likely to break, although modern physics disagrees. The easy handling thanks to the lighter build promises you don’t have to test the theory too often.
Heat Up Time is Rapid
Heat up time isn’t just about convenience. In a portable situation, you’re often vaping in little windows when no one is looking. The faster you vape, the more discreet you remain.
The Firefly 2 has one of the fastest heat up times in the vaporizer industry. 3 to 5 seconds and you’re vaping.
Mobile App Controls
You can control the Firefly 2 via mobile app, which offers two perks: You can keep the vaporizer discreetly tucked away in your pocket until it’s time to vape. And you get more control over your vaping experience.
Imagine the typical vaporizer interface. In other words, picture a few buttons. Now consider the potential of controlling the Firefly 2 via mobile app. With updates always on the horizon, the possibilities are endless.
Touch Sensor Buttons
This feature isn’t much more convenient than a button you click. But it’s technologically awesome.
By holding down the two buttons on each side of the vaporizer at the same time, the heating system powers up. When you hold them down for longer than thirty seconds, the devices goes into standby mode.
You can customize the touch sensor controls via, you guessed it, mobile app.
6 Customizable Heat Settings
Generally, you get whatever presets the manufacturer chose. The Firefly 2 does just that--with 5 herb temps and 1 wax concentrate temp--but allows you to toggle each setting using a “Power Tuning” feature found in the Firefly app.
You can change each heat setting by 11% at the most.
The Firefly 2 heats when you activate the touch sensors. But it only vaporizes the contents of its herb chamber when drawn from. This saves a lot of dry herb.
You can spread one bowl over many sessions, saving money and time spent reloading the chamber.
We could go into detail about the Firefly 2 vaporizer. The die-cast magnesium alloy, so sturdy yet lightweight. The mirrored Gorilla Glass interior on the underside of the magnetically locked faceplate. The porthole, built into the front of the faceplate, through which the herb chamber glows orange to please the eyes. Or you can take our word for it. The Firefly 2 is a great vaporizer.
