With the original Firefly vaporizer being criticised for its lack of temperature control, short battery life, and bulky design for what was supposed to be a portable vaporizer, Firefly had a lot to work on when they were designing the second addition of this dry herb vaporizer.
We don’t think that the Firefly 2 disappoints, as although it looks similar to the original model this time around it is 33% smaller and 55% lighter which makes it far more portable and easier to use due to its new slimline profile. Plus, its sleek and almost retro look work really well with its bright design meaning that this is a vaporizer you would be proud to show off.
However, this particular dry herb vaporizer could be described as being a bit pricey, but is the Firefly 2 worth the money?
The Firefly 2 has been designed to give users a great tasting vapour due to its glass vapour path, and many have said that it is one of the better portable vaporizers for producing a satisfying taste and that all flavours can be accessed when taking long draws.
Its glass oven technology means that it won’t overheat, and it has a little quartz window which allows you to see your herbs cook, plus its magnetic face plate means that it is very robust and durable.
There is little or no waste when using the Firefly 2 vaporizer as the herbs are only heated when you press the sensor as this vaporizer does not reach your chosen temperature and maintain this throughout the session like other devices do. This also means that is produces less odour which is great if you are looking for a subtle device and you have complete control over what you use.
This vaporizer can heat material up to between 170 and 215 Celsius and has 6 levels which can be chosen via the app, plus its convection technology means that your material will not burn during use.
One thing that may cause frustration is that the herbs will need stirring quite frequently, but just make sure that you have stirring sticks available and this won’t be an issue.
Portable and low maintenance
The Firefly 2 measures just 12 x 3.5 x 2.1cm which means that you will have no trouble transporting it around in your pocket, but bear in mind that you might need to take the spare battery, charging dock, and stirring sticks with you when you are out and about.
Easy to clean and load, the mouthpiece and filter of this this vaporizer can be removed and cleaned with no fuss whenever this is required.
Improved battery life
Compared to the original Firefly, the Firefly 2 has a much improved battery life as it will now last between 1 and 2 hours which will give you better sessions. The battery can be charged in just 45 minutes but it must be within the device while it is charging.
This can be frustrating as the Firefly 2 vaporizer comes with a second battery but you cannot charge the flat one while you are vaping due to this slight design flaw. However, this is still a far better option than the short battery life of the original Firefly.
A great app
A number of vaporizers now come with an associated app, and the Firefly 2 version has plenty of functions that you will find both useful and interesting.
For example, the app can be used to change and adjust the pre-set temperature settings which means that you can alter the temperature while you are vaping, the other way to do this is to hold down the sensor during your session which will increase the heat being produced.
You can also check the Firefly 2’s battery level using the app, watch instructional videos which offer technical advice, and contact customer support too. In addition to this you will be able to gain access to the Firefly community centre where you can chat with others who share your vaping interest, discuss methods and techniques, and ask any questions that you have.
The Firefly blog is also available through the app so you can keep up to date with vaping news and product developments which may be of interest.
With a great design, the ability to produce delicious tasting vapour, a handy app, and a small size, we think the Firefly 2 vaporizer is worth the money if you are looking for a new dry herb vaporizer.
