Full review of one of the best portable vaporizers:
The firefly is a labor of love plain and simple. From the moment you open the box its impossible not to marvel at how well crafted the vaporizer is. I purchased the red Firefly and the picture that kept coming back to me was a 50’s hot rod. The sleek design, deep red color, and all steel construction just screams classic. This is a piece you will immediately want to show your friends and keep on display.
When you open the box, which in itself is very nice, you will immediately notice the vaporizer sitting on its throne. Underneath you will find the detachable battery, charger, and a cloth carrying case. Out of all the vaporizers I’ve used this one has the least amount of accessories. However I consider this a bonus since you’re not expected to carry any extra items other than the device.
The Firefly uses a convection style system to force hot air through the bowl and down a channel in the cover. The bowl is made of glass and the cover takes up the entire top of the device so cleaning couldn’t be easier. One of the first things you’ll notice is the simplicity of the vaporizer. There is only one switch, that turns on the device, and a button used to force air through the bowl. As soon as the device is charged and loaded you are ready to go. You don’t have to set temperature, wait for it to heat up, or cool down. This is where the Firefly really shines. When the button is held on the side the vaporizer heats up and you inhale through the mouthpiece.
While the Firefly cannot be used with concentrates or oils it absolutely excels with dry herbs. This is the best dry herb portable vaporizer I have used. The main downside is its incredible weight and very small bowl. Remember how I said it reminds me of a hot rod? Well it also weighs the same. The Firefly is one of the heaviest vaporizers on the market thanks to its all steel construction.
While you don’t have to worry about it breaking, carrying for a long period of time can be difficult. Size and weight are a big factor in a being portable and this device is at the top for both. Added to this is the fact that the bowl is the smallest of any portable vape I’ve reviewed so far. For a portable this means you are required to take a large amount of herbs on the go since the bowl only holds enough for about one session per person.
In the cover is a viewing window which I’m guessing is there so you know when all of your herbs have been vaporized. However this means it cannot be used in public without some unwanted scrutiny. Overall, if you are looking for a vaporizer you can use with friends in a private setting with dry herbs then I cannot recommend the firefly enough. If you’re in the market for a vape you can take anywhere then take a look at the Pax. What the firefly lacks in portability it more than makes up for in performance. If you’ve ever used the Volcano desktop vaporizer but wished it was smaller then the Firefly will not disappoint.
