Unfortunately, the Firefly 2 Vaporizer has been discontinued. We recommend the following three devices in its place.
Although the first generation Firefly Vaporizer completely changed the game for portable dry herb vapes, there was definitely room for improvement. The second generation, the Firefly 2 Vaporizer has exceeded expectations by shrinking in both weight and size. It added an amazing new slew of functional applications that cater to the vaper. The true convection vaporizer uses an all glass vapor pathway that utilizes a combination of magnesium alloy and laser drilled holes to keep all the heat in the chamber. The exterior stays cool while baking herbs or concentrate to perfection. Along with its epic functionalities, there are some other key components that improve on the original Firefly vaporizer
The Firefly 2 Vaporizer is an investment level piece. This is not the modular vape pen that has become ubiquitous in areas of legalization. This is not tanks that leak and coils that burn. The Firefly is what you imagined legalization would bring. Or, more likely, the Firefly 2 Vaporizer is far better than any pipe dream you had.
The Firefly 2 is the sort of piece you graduate to when you’ve grown tired of the excitement that is small flecks of hot THC oil unexpectedly landing on your tongue. The Firefly 2 is a high dollar piece of equipment made for more-than-occasional vapers. Those who reach for their vape many times throughout the day will find that this piece is tailored to their needs, if not designed for them.
If you don’t already have a daily driver, this piece isn’t for you. The Firefly 2 is meant to replace a favorite, not to hold an occasional piece in your rotation. Are you looking for a high-end vape? Does your lifestyle require versatility between flower and various consistencies of concentrate? Fantastic. You should consider the Firefly 2.
The Firefly 2 is essentially the first Firefly reduced by ⅓. This is useful is you are a solitary vaper or one who only shares their herbs with a small select group of friends. If you want to share a bowl with a large group of people at a party or a gathering, you are going to have a lot of problems. This piece is built to allow for one great hit, one good hit, and (sometimes) one half-hearted hit. It is no good for groups. Firefly 2 measures weighing 140 grams and the body measures 5’’ x 1.6’’ x 0.8’’. The thin design is reminiscent of a new model cell phone. It's also paired with 5 color options: blue, gold, black, silver and red.
This device is light. It is meant to be a feature. Firefly designed the mouthpiece to be removable and made out of a completely BPA free FDA-food safe Triton polymer. The face plate can be removed. It stays attached magnetically to ensure that none of the product in the chamber falls out. The magnet is very strong and will not cause the plate to open up in your pocket. When closed, it leaves a glass porthole so that the contents of the chamber are visible during the session. Large and efficient, the chamber measures 17mm x 17mm x 8mm with an almost completely borosilicate glass vapor pathway. To vape concentrates, add a concentrate conversion pad to the chamber and vape as usual.
Small oven size means that every hit is fresh and the first hit tastes as good as the last. The convection heating and ceramic chamber combine to ensure the best taste you’ve ever experienced. Combine that with vapor that is cool, and you’re looking at one of the best portable vaping experiences on the market.
The Firefly 2 has allowed customers to experience flavors that they hadn't noticed. The individual characters in house-blend concentrates are clear when hit from this vape. Every-day vapers will find that even standard blends come to life when they make use of the concentrate sponges that come with the Firefly 2.
The borosilicate glass chamber is heated by a 50-watt battery. The key to the vapor being less harsh is that the herbs or concentrates are only heated while you are hitting the vaporizer. This way the herbs will bake completely evenly with no burning. It also means that flowers will heat more efficiently and wax won’t burn out when you aren’t hitting it.
Each kit comes with 2 batteries. They can be recharged using the charging dock that connects through a USB port to any phone or tablet. Get a full charge on the Firefly 2 vape in only 90 minutes. This is a record time compared to all other portable vape options. Firefly has also put out a free app to help make the vape customizable to your exact specifications for your vapor session. The app connects from a phone to set the temperature and customize the touch sensor activation. Download the app and wake up the vaporizer to pair it with your phone and control will be in the palm of your hand.
Not only did the engineers at Firefly improve on their original design, but they’ve improved on the functionality as well. It's 55% lighter and 33% smaller. This is only the beginning of the big steps forward with the second generation Firefly. Everything is controlled by two sensors on each side of the vape. No, not a button, a sensor. Place both the thumb and first finger over the touch sensors on either side of the vaporizer. This will activate the heating element. Be careful with these sensors. They are sensitive and can turn on by a carrying case or a pocket. It is hard to remember and to trust, but the power buttons need to be touched not pushed. After the Firefly 2 is activated, the piece will be fully heated in only 5 seconds. The chamber will illuminate orange to show that it is active. This definitely makes up for the original Firefly showing no signs of whether it was heating or not. A small LED light located underneath the chamber will shine green when the Firefly 2 has heated. This will take approximately 5-6 seconds.
The devices design is to be used with flower as well as any sort of concentrate that you can imagine. This is not your typical dilute-it-til-it-works situations. The multi-functionality puts this vape into a class that few can meet. Few vaporizers can multi-task.
How to Use the Firefly 2
The easiest way to use the Firefly 2 is through the app (available through iOS or Android.)
- Load the glass chamber with flower or concentrate
- Close the chamber.
- Put your thumb and index finger on the sensor and let it heat up.
- The chamber will rapidly come to the correct temperature. Bowls typically last two to three hits.
The Firefly 2 Vaporizer features 5 pre-set temperature settings for dry herbs and 1 temperature for concentrates. This vape can be set to 340°F (171℃), 360°F (182℃), 380°F (193℃), 400°F (204℃), 420°F (215℃) for dry herbs and 500°F (260℃) to properly vape concentrates. Set the Firefly 2 Vaporizer temperature either with the free app that connects with an iPhone or Droid via Bluetooth to change the temperature. You can also set it manually with the touch sensors. Not only is the vapor quality top notch with the Firefly 2, it also makes the most of the product. That is why this vaporizer is truly made with the dynamic vape technology of the future.
This device heats and cools very fast. This allows for a level temperature control that was previously unthinkable. The Firefly 2 transfers very little heat, meaning that you can cover the glow of the hot bowl without being burned. This, combined with its rapid heat time, allows the Firefly to be one of the stealthiest vaporizers on the market.
Cleaning and Maintenance
This vape requires very little in the way of maintenance. Clean the device before the bowl and joints become sticky with plant residue. The Firefly 2 should be cleaned with a q-tip soaked in isopropyl alcohol.
The Firefly seems to heat up almost instantly with no warm up or waiting period. Whether you’re loading flower or some form of concentrate, the Firefly 2 is always ready to go. While I was initially thrilled by the small oven size, it eventually became as much of an issue as a feature. The small size means that bowls are finished quickly and the flavor through a session remains fresh and clear. Unfortunately, I also found that the small oven size makes it nearly impossible to use this particular vaporizer with a large group of friends. If you like to be the person passing the piece and promoting the party, this. vaporizer simply will not do. If you have a tight circle and you like to keep it that way, this vape will probably be the last piece of paraphernalia that you buy.
The ability to transition between flower and concentrates makes this one of the more universal pieces on the market. With the addition or subtraction of rather universal parts, the Firefly dry herb vape becomes suitable for any and all concentrates (without dilution).
The Firefly 2 is an out-of-the-box personalized vape kit. I was surprised at the level of benefits it provided. I was also shocked to see how it intersected with the out-of-the-box nature of the device. The equipment is super easy to use with zero instruction.
- Comes with lots of accessories
- Super easy to use
- Incredible taste when vaping various concentrates
- Super versatile - can toggle back and forth between flower and concentrates with very few modifications in between
- Small bowl makes it hard to use this in groups of more than two
- One temperature for concentrate means that those who prefer to use concentrate do not have many options as far as session quality goes with the Firefly 2.
