    How to use the Firefly 2 Vaporizer

    A step by step on how to use the Firefly 2 Vaporizer, and to get the perfect hit from one of the Best vaporizers in the market.

    Well, the answer to that, is right here!

    Indeed, opening your new Firefly 2 vaporizer is an aesthetic delight – but how do you get the most out of your gorgeous new purchase? Here are some tips and tricks that get your new Firefly 2 working for you just how it should. It’s not difficult; just follow this how-to guide to get that massive, delicious hit you’ve been searching for…

    Before using your Firefly 2 you may want to install and update the software from your phone. This is not necessary, but it is advisable. The process is quick, and it will give you more control over the temperature. You can find instructions on how to install the software at the end of this guide.

    How to use the Firefly 2 Vaporizer

    1. To use the Firefly 2 vaporizer, lift off the top cover – it’s magnetized and should pull off easily. Your favorite dried herbs will be put into the circular heating chamber.

    2. How much you pack in, and how finely ground it is, greatly affects how the Firefly hits. I would recommend grinding it up very coarse, coarser than you would think.

    3. Sprinkle it into the heating chamber loosely, then gently tamp down with your finger, but do not push it in hard. Be careful not to over pack the chamber. Packing it in this way helps deliver a smoother and more intense hit. Having said that, it also works really well if you are lazy and decide to just shove an unground up nug in there, when you don’t feel like or can’t use a grinder.

    4. After loading it, place the top back on the Firefly 2. You should feel the magnets pull it into place with a satisfying snap.

    Now, Ready to Go!

    5. YES! You are now ready to hit your Firefly 2! Pick the vaporizer up in the palm of your hand and place your index fingers on both of the two capacitive buttons on the sides. Hold your fingers there, until you see the LED on top turn solid green. Keep holding the buttons, put your lips on the mouthpiece and start to draw the air in. Many convective vaporizers require you to pull very softly to get the best hit, making them difficult to use, as they only have a small margin of error. However, the Firefly 2 requires a very natural, effortless draw. Not too hard, not too soft – imagine you are smoking a pipe. It’s easy to get the perfect draw – especially if you don’t overthink it.

    6. As you hit it, you will notice the flavor change after a few draws. Once you begin to taste burnt popcorn, it’s almost done, and you need to reload the bowl soon. Opening up the Firefly 2 vaporizer, and giving the heating chamber a little stir will let you get a few more draws out of it. If you don’t have anything available to stir it with, give it a few light smacks on your palm to move what’s inside around a bit.

    7. While you are using your Firefly 2, make sure you are always charging the extra battery! The Firefly 2 comes with two, so if you charge one while using the other, you’ll never have to prematurely end your session because the battery ran out.

    8. After using the Firefly 2 vaporizer, make sure to clean it thoroughly according to the instructions in the box. Cleaning the Firefly 2 is easy, and even easier if you do it right after finishing your session. If you neglect it, the heating chamber can get sticky over time. Every once in a while, lightly dampen some lint-free cloth or paper with rubbing alcohol. Then gently wipe clean the inside to keep it in great condition so you can use it for years to come.

    Installing The Firefly 2 Vaporizer Software Onto Your Device

    The Firefly 2 vaporizer has an available software update, which gives you additional ways to adjust your device. The software is available on either Android or iOS, and the process is simple and quick:

    • Install the “Firefly Vapor” app on your smartphone from the iTunes app store or Google Play.
    • Make sure your phone has Bluetooth on, turn on the app, and follow the instructions on screen.
    • You now have access to settings that allow you to completely fine-tune your Firefly 2 vaporizer.
    • After selecting a temperature setting, you can now adjust the power curve to modify the heating profile. A hotter setting will hit harder, and a lower one will be tastier longer. But be careful, as the hottest setting with the power curve on max is just about hot enough to cause combustion, and too low a temperature will not give satisfying draws.
    • Play around with it to find your preferred sweet spot.

    Happy Vaping! 🙂

  • Guide: How To Use The Vamo V5

    Welcome to the Vapor Puffs guide on how to use the Vamo V5! We’re going to begin by breaking down the components of the Vamo V5 and then move onto showing you how to use it.

    What is The Vamo V5?

    The Vamo V5 is a Vaporizer Battery with an accessible battery chamber, extension tubes, and a LCD Screen that allows you to adjust Voltage and Wattage.

    vamo-v5-vaporizer-ecig-kit-2

     

    • Threading Connection – Found at the top of the Vamo V5, this part connects to the Threading Connection that’s found at the end of an atomizer. The Vamo V5 has a second Threading Connection that can be found by removing the ring at the top of the Vamo V5.
    • LCD Screen – This Screen is used to change the Voltage and Wattage of the Vamo V5. The two buttons found under screen will change the values.
    • Power Button – Underneath the LCD Screen, this turns the Battery on, off and begins the vaporization process.
    • Extension Tubes – The Vamo V5 comes with two small tubes that can be connected together in order to allow a bigger battery to be placed inside. The tubes are followed by a small cap.

    How To Turn On The Vamo V5

    The standard method for turning these kinds of vaporizers on or off is to press the power button 5 times consecutively and rapidly. You’ll know it’s been turned on because the power button will flash. The reasoning for this method is to allow a greater temperature output from the Vamo V5 Vaporizer and as a safety function to keep it from turning on without your knowledge.

    How To Use The Vamo V5

    • Insert the Battery

    Remove the extension tubes from the part with the LCD Screen and Power Button. Insert your batteries into the tube and then reattach it to the Vamo main part.

    • Turn On The Vamo V5

    Using the method above, turn on the Vamo V5. You should see the light on the power button flash once it’s on.

    • Attach Atomizer

    Once all that’s done, attach the Atomizer to the Vamo V5 and hold the power button when you’re ready to begin vaping. Everything should come naturally from here.

    Happy Vaping!

  • Guide: How to Use the Dragon Mechanical Mod

    Welcome to the Vapor Puffs guide on how to use the Dragon Mechanical Mod. We’ll start off by giving a brief introduction to the parts of the Dragon Mechanical Mod and then move onto showing you how it works.

    What is the Dragon Mechanical Mod?

    Made entirely out of copper in order to increase conductivity, the Dragon Mechanical Mod is a fully analog mod sized for 18650 batteries.

    dragon-mechanical-mod-2

    • Threading Connection – At the top of the Dragon is a 510 threading connection that can be removed by twisting it counter-clockwise. Your atomizer will connect to this part. On the inside, a silver plated contact can be found.
    • Battery Tube – This is where your battery will go. It can be accessed by removing either cap at the top or bottom.
    • Firing Button – Found at the bottom, the Dragon’s firing button works a little differently than most. Rather than having a spring that requires you to hold the button down, it’s just pushed in or left out, without the need for you to hold it down. With this new firing button idea, the Dragon also has a lock mechanism which is activated by twisting the firing button to the right while it is in the off position.

    How To Use The Dragon Mechanical Mod

    • Insert the Battery

    Remove the firing button by twisting it counter clockwise. Then, insert your battery with the positive side facing the atomizer side. Re-attach the firing button.

    • Attach Your Atomizer

    Now, grab your atomizer and attach it to the threading connection at the top. While connecting, make sure the firing button is not pushed in.

    • Begin Vaping

    Now with everything connected, push in the firing button. The vaping process should start, and everything should come naturally at this point.

    Thanks for Reading Our Guide on How to Use the Dragon Mechanical Mod!

    We hope we’ve helped you figure out how to get it working.

  • This is one of the child vapers.. Vaping on the best e-liquid vaporizers for beginners. Guide: E-Liquid Vaporizers for Beginners

    Last week we published guide on the best dry herb vaporizers out on the market. This week, we’re taking a different direction. We’ll be looking at some of the best e-liquid vaporizers for beginners, and giving you some tips on the best setups to invest in to start your vaping journey.

    I organized this list in order of decreasing ease of use, as I am of the strong belief that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work too well when it comes to vaping; some people may want to test the waters first before upgrading to a more advanced device, while others may want to jump right in and get a vape they can rely on for a long time. Beginner vapers come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of expectations, so I will try to make clear what I find each of the vapes on this list best suited for. So, with that said, let’s jump right in!

    Kanger EMUS

    kanger-emus-vaporizer-kit-1

    If you’re not quite sure vaping is for you, or if you want to test it out for a little while on a reduced budget before fully committing, there are few e-liquid vaporizers better suited for you than the Kanger EMUS. At $29.95 for a kit containing two vaporizer pens, the Kanger EMUS is one of the most affordable starter vaporizer pens on the market. The Kanger EMUS is also among the best e-liquid vaporizers for beginners in general. Not only does it look quite sleek, much like the rest of Kanger’s starter pens (more on that later), but it’s also designed with ease of use in mind. The 1.2mL tank is extremely easy to fill, and the fact that the starter kit comes with two pens means you will never run out of battery, e-liquid, or a functioning tank at the worst time. On top of that, the Kanger EMUS comes with a six month warranty, so you won’t have to worry about wasting your hard earned money on a device that will only work for a couple of weeks. And functionality doesn’t really get much easier than it is with a one-button vape. Charge your battery, fill the tank, and start vaping. That’s about all you need to know to enjoy this vape.

    Kanger EVOD 2

    kanger-evod-black-2

    There is a reason the ever-popular Kanger EVOD 2 setup is probably the most visible open-tank system electronic cigarette out there. In fact, there are a few reasons. For one thing, the EVOD 2 is small and discreet enough that you’re not walking around looking like you’re brandishing a miniature lightsaber; the EVOD 2 mostly looks like a pretty sleek pen. For another thing, EVOD 2 operates at a constant 3.7V, taking the guesswork and experimentation out of vaping. That means that instead of fiddling around with variable voltage, wattage, or whatever else, you can just press a button and get right to vaping. But what makes the Kanger EVOD 2 one of the best e-liquid vaporizers for beginners on the market is primarily its reliability. Not to mention the fact that, because the EVOD 2 is so popular, replacement parts can be found in most smoke/vape shops, so you will never find yourself looking frantically for a replacement coil for some sort of obscure device that no one has ever heard of. Overall, I would say that the Kanger EVOD 2 is among the top three e-liquid vaporizers for beginners. Easy to use, reliable, and kind of a sleek SOB.

    Aspire Nautilus + Battery

    aspire-nautilus-atomizer-2

    You might think that the Aspire Nautilus is too complicated of a tank to use as a beginner, but you would be wrong. Case in point? It was the Aspire Nautilus that finally got me into vaping, and anything I can manage, you certainly can as well. Among e-liquid vaporizers for beginners, this is kind of an odd pick. For one thing, the Nautilus does best on a variable voltage or a variable wattage battery. For another, this tank is also somewhat bulkier than any of the other tanks on this list, though this also means that its tank has a much higher capacity than most of the tanks on this list. And on top of that, the glass tank is certainly somewhat more difficult to take care of than some less fragile tanks that can be found on vaporizers primarily aimed at beginners. On the other hand, though, the Nautilus provides about the best vaping experience other than rebuildable atomizers with a tiny fraction of the work involved, so I believe it’s worth the extra work, even for a beginner. If vapor quality is your main concern when it comes to picking a beginning vape, then this is probably the first tank I would recommend, along with a suitable battery (like this VisionSpinner 2). One thing I would suggest, if you choose to go with the Nautilus, is that you stock up on replacement coils and, well, Q-tips. Keeping the tank clean and fresh is one of the keys to keeping the Nautilus relatively hassle-free.

    iTaste MVP 2.0

    MVP 2.0 Starter Kit

    One of the best things you could ask for when it comes to a starter e-liquid vaporizer is, well, license to mess up. Which is why the iTaste MVP 2.0 vaporizer starter kit is the real MVP of e-liquid vaporizers for beginners. The iTaste MVP 2.0 comes with a 6 month warranty period, ensuring that you won’t need to worry about anything going wrong during the first few months of your transition to vaping. The variable voltage/variable wattage battery is powerful enough to power almost any tank, including, for instance, the Aspire Nautilus above. Of course, this battery will take more getting used to than the one-button fixed voltage batteries that come with the Kanger kits listed above, but I’ve found it quite easy to get a hang of variable voltage/wattage batteries. All you need is a little bit of patience finding the right wattage for you to vape at. After that, it’s pretty smooth sailing. So if you are willing to invest a little more money and time up front, the iTaste MVP 2.0 kit is a good place to start.
