Firefly Vaporizer all Colors Side by Side

- Reputation - Vapor quality is really where it shines, and is why so many consider it to be the best portable vaporizer on the market. You'll get the full flavor of your herbs and a very smooth, pleasing sensation when you draw from this vape. The Firefly produces very potent vapor, and when you use it the right way, you can get large clouds with the device.

- Guarantee - The warranty is for 5 years, longer than the 2 year-warranty offered on most portable vapes that are similarly priced.

- Prep Time - Loading the Firefly is pretty easy. The heating chamber is small, but there is a cleaning brush included that will allow you to push any herbs that don't end up in the vape into the chamber.

- Portability - One downside is that it is a little longer and a lot heavier than most other portables. Really, this model is more of a handheld vaporizer that is a convenient alternative to a desktop vaporizer for use at home rather than for traveling.

- Ease of Use - The biggest problem with the Firefly is that if you simply follow the directions in the quick start guide you likely won't end up with large vapor clouds. While the controls are simple to master, there is a special technique that you need to employ to really get the unit to generate a lot of vapor. The technique is outlined in the tips section below.

- Heating - There is only one temperature setting offered on the portbale vaporizer, but the dynamic convection heating element is optimized to prevent combustion. Even if you experiment with different materials, you really don't need variable heat settings due to the advanced design.

- Power Supply - The battery only will last you through about one long session or two standard ones. Fortunately, it only takes the battery 45 minutes to recharge, and you can purchase extra batteries to have at the ready.
