FIRELY 2 | Portable weed vaporizer review
The Firefly 2 is the evolution of the famous Firefly, which has improved in many aspects.
The major improvements compared to the previous unit are: heating speed, ease of maintenance and the battery life, as well as overall weight reduction and reduced dimensions.
Firefly 2| Design and portability
The new Firefly 2 is 33% smaller and 55% lighter than its ancestor.
Although not the most portable, its ultra-fast heating time and the minimal odor that it releases make it suitable for use in more or less public places without giving too much into the eye.
The Firefly 2 is one of the portable vaporizers with the easiest maintenance, thanks to its exposed glass bowl you can use a simple cloth, possibly soaked with alcohol, to quickly remove any residue.
Firefly 2| Vapor quality
The Firefly 2 bowl has 55 small holes that transmit the heat below our herbs or concentrates.
In my opinion, the “glowing” effect that looks around the brazier when the vaporizer is in operation is very nice.
You can set up to 5 different temperature values for herbs, and one for concentrates: the maximum temperature is 215°C.
The heating speed is at the top, in fact, it takes 5 seconds to reach the maximum temperature, and if you use lower values it is also necessary to wait for less than 3 seconds.
It is possible to control the Firefly 2 through a smartphone app (for Android or iOS) that, using a bluetooth connection, allows to set different temperature values, without touching the vaporizer.
To put it all though, it seems more like a fancy gadget than a useful feature during everyday use.
The vapor quality itself is gorgeous: tasteful and smooth, the vapor delivered by the Firefly 2, is over the top.
Firefly 2 | Battery
The battery life is another great improvement compared to the past, in fact you can now get to an average life of 90 minutes; smoking concentrates requires a slightly longer sessions, so it can decrease the overall battery life.
The recharging takes approximately 45 minutes to bring the battery level back to 100%, but it takes about 25 minutes to get up to 80%.
It should be added that in the package there is another easily replaceable battery, such as a mobile phone; in the box there is also a USB docking station, which can be used in a car as well.
Firefly 2 | The choice
This vaporizer is undoubtedly a great product, and as such it’s a bit pricey: however, considering other portable vaporizers of similar quality (see our guide to choosing the best portable vaporizer), it is worth every single pound.
The Firefly 2, heats up in just 5 seconds, delivers an absolute quality vapor, it has a replaceable battery: so, if you want a top notch vaporizer, just go for it.
There are many portable vaporizers, but the Firefly 2 is surely one of the best. Super fast heating, great vapor quality and good battery life.
