The New Firefly 2; Does It Burn As Brightly As The Original?
Firefly has now released the sequel to its popular Firefly portable convection vaporizer. The previous version had a dedicated fan base, which is missing from the new model. Is the new Firefly 2 a puff or a pass?
As first glance, the Firefly 2 seems to be the total package. People often keep a big vaporizer at home and have a portable vape for when they go out. But these days, you don’t need to plug anything into the wall to get that perfect hit after a long day. You can get quicker, better hits out of a Firefly 2 than most stationary units. It’s surprising because most portable dry herb vaporizers don’t stand up to home vaporizers like the Volcano. But the Firefly is unique in that it quickly heats up the herb to the perfect temperature and it goes straight down the hatch, into your lungs. It’s just tastier than having to suck the vapor out of a plastic bag, or a long silicon whip. You could get great hits from the original Firefly as well, but it required some skill to do, and it would sometimes combust! Not cool. It was amazing but had issues, like a crazy ex-girlfriend. She was fun as hell, but when she combusted, you would ask yourself if it is all worth it. The original Firefly was like a beautiful classic Italian sports car; great when it was all dialed in, but a total pain in the ass the rest of the time. The new Firefly 2 is like a modern supercar, just press down on the gas… and fly.
The new 2017 version takes the old Firefly design and perfects it. You get beautiful, milky hits that give you that heavy, deep punch in the lungs that you might miss from smoking. No more spending hours online to find tips on the best way to hit it. The Firefly 2 vaporizer is idiot proof – just push the button (ok two buttons). Once you update the software to fine-tune the power settings, you get complete control over the temperature, so that you can adjust it to your exact preferred temp. Also new, is the ability to use concentrates. The Firefly 2 is great for concentrates. It’s discreet, easy to load, and gives great dabs without having to heat up a nail.
Firefly listened to their customers, and the complaints that people had with the old one have all been addressed. It now comes with two batteries instead of one for endless sessions. It’s half the size, and lighter than the original. The old metal body was great but it was bulky and heavy. The new version has a more natural feel in the hand. With such great design, it’s not something you want to stick in a drawer, and you might just end up showing it off. Overall, the construction of the Firefly 2 is marvelous, with good build-quality and great overall aesthetics. It’s solid and feels well made, but also comes with a warranty, just in case it does have any issues. Firefly is known for having good customer service, so even if there’s a problem, they quickly make things right.
In one word, The Firefly 2 is… Amazing! It takes what was already good about the original Firefly, and makes it perfection. The new Firefly 2 handles everything you can throw at it, to the point that you might not need to use any other vaporizer. You’ll start using it exclusively; it’s so versatile and hits so well. Worth every penny, it’s easy to see why it is often lauded as the best vaporizer on the market, period. Do yourself a favor and pick one up.
