Firefly Vapor pretty much only makes one product – The Firefly Vaporiser. For those of you who are unaware the Firefly is a top-tier luxury herbal vaporiser. Pretty much the cream of the crop with a stellar reputation for creating vaporisers for hard core herbal connoisseurs. Firefly vaporisers are known universally for their ability to create fabulous tasting vapour on demand with minimal wastage. Firefly covers any workmanship and defect issues with the Firefly 2+ for two years. Like all of their products, the Firefly 2+ vaporizer is covered by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
TIP: 2 Years Limited Warranty is offered by Firefly
The Firefly 2+ is meticulously crafted from aero-space grade materials (magnesium alloy body and a quartz viewing window) and looks/operates like no other vape that I sell/own. Firefly has the reputation of being more than a standard herbal vaporiser but instead is known as a superior medicinal delivery device and is a best seller with my medicinal marijuana prescription holder customers.
The 2+ is an upgrade from the Firefly 2 with a variety of improvements such as;
- Better, less restrictive airflow
- More consistent results
- A price drop
- Quicker heat up times
- Improved battery life
The 2+ is the same size and looks identical to the 2 with the same magnetic top lid and touch sensors. A portable vaporiser but you may need a bag/pouch or rather large pockets to carry it about. Or check out the Firefly vaporiser case (yes, I sell it!).
Measuring: 13cm (L) x 3.6cms (W) x 2.4 (D)
Marketed primarily as a dry herb vaporiser, the Firefly 2+ can be considered dual use as concentrate pads (stainless steel) are included in this kit allowing you to vaporiser herbal concentrates. I don’t usually recommend dual use vapes as there always seems to be a compromise in some way or another with functionality of both. Not so with the Firefly 2+ which is said to produce some pretty flavourful dab sessions. The hits are drawn out over a period of time instead of a single concentrated hit.
TIP: You MUST use the concentrates pads if vaping wax/thick oils. The pad sits flat upon the entire base of the heating chamber.
The Firefly is well known for its unique style of heating, using on-demand convection. A main reason why all the versions of the Firefly are considered to be superior medicinal delivery devices as opposed to a simple herbal vaporiser (more below). 7 temperatures can be accessed via the actual unit with an included app for further customisation.
A massive plus for the Firefly 2+ is the removable/rechargeable battery Lithium ion 770mAh battery. Whilst this is still the same battery that can be found in the Firefly 2 there has been a firmware upgrade increasing total battery life. If you already have the Firefly 2 you will be happy to know that the battery for both is interchangeable.
TIP: Quite a fast battery to charge and should charge completely with 45 minutes.
UNIQUE HEATING STYLE
The Firefly 2+ heats entirely via convection – the movement of hot air over and through the herbal material and usually only heats on demand (inhalation). Not your average convection heater, the Firefly 2 uses Dynamic Convection heating which doesn’t reach maximum temperature immediately instead this innovative vaporiser will increase the temperature throughout your draw enabling you to fully experience all the nuances of flavour. As a full convection vaporiser, you will notice amazing flavours that aren’t expressed fully when using a conduction vaporiser.
TIP: Herbal vaping connoisseurs tend to mix the contents of the bowl every few inhales or so. This enables full extraction to occur.
Heating upon inhalation only, enables you to vape at will without having to sit through an entire heating session. This is the main reason that medicinal patients love this vaporiser as they are able to effectively microdose throughout the day. The FireFly 2+ has been engineered to heat up incredibly quickly but to also reduce the heat fast so that it does not overheat. Therefore, you can take days or even weeks to finish the one packed chamber if you so desire, making this vaporiser highly efficient.
TIP: The Firefly 2+ has a lightning fast heat up speed, 20 seconds from cold to inhalation. 3 second heat up time on average during use.
7 heating profiles are provided with this device, accessible via either the Firefly 2+ itself or the mobile Bluetooth app. The Firefly app is free and available to download from the Android App Store, sadly Apple has made moral choices and have decided not to support any herbal vaping apps on their platform. The Firefly app will allow you to fully customise your device, calibration, fully control temperature, upgrade firmware and many other features. Please read your instruction manual for full app instructions.
Each of the 7 temperatures can be accessed directly via the sensors located on either side of the Firefly 2+. To begin you will need to press and hold the right-side sensor, whilst still holding down the right button tap the left button 3 times fast. You are now in temperature setting mode and the LED will blink red 1 – 7 times to indicate current setting. To change temperature simply tap (1-7 taps) the left sensor again. The 7 heating settings are as follows…
- 1 tap: Ultra low 320°F/160°C
- 2 taps: Low 340°F/170°C
- 3 taps: Medium Low 350°F/182°C
- 4 taps: Medium 380°F/193°C
- 5 taps: Medium High400°F/204°C
- 6 taps: High 420°F/215°C
- 7 taps: Concentrates setting ONLY 500°F/260°C
EXPOSED VAPOUR PATHWAY AND HEATING CHAMBER
One of the reasons that I have always loved the Firefly is the ease of access to the entire vapour pathway – bowl to mouthpiece. Easy to load and easy to clean, another positive factor in medicinal usage. The bowl/heating chamber is accessed by removing the magnetic lid and I’m not sure that it could get any easier than that. The heating chamber is made from high grade borosilicate glass that works in conjunction with the borosilicate glass airpath both working together to ensure purity and an unadulterated flavour.
TIP: Unlike the Firefly 2, the 2+ allows you to pack the bowl to your preference. Pack fully or load with smaller amounts for micro-dosing, the choice is yours.
