The Firefly is the most efficient way to celebrate herbally-tolerant legislation. This portable vaporizer uses convection technology to heat your combustibles as smoothly as possible, enhancing flavors and active ingredients with every puff.
Why We Love It
There’s a reason why your mom loves her convection oven – it’s one of the most efficient ways to cook. Designed for the 18+ crowd, the Firefly uses the same convection principles to preheat air moving through your combustibles, providing an optimized method for extracting flavors and active ingredients while you vape. For the first time, Firefly makes this advanced technology available in portable form – now superb herbal convection is easily transported in your bag or coat pocket. Traditional combustion used by other portable vaporizers heats through direct contact with the contents, but this tends to lead to an uneven burn and even worse, an unnecessary consumption of what we’ll assume are rather expensive, treasured goods. Firefly optimally heats materials to avoid waste and gives off a smoother sensory experience than your run-of-the-mill paraphernalia. Your combustibles taste better, smell better, and feel better, delivering a perfect puff every time.
As legislation moves into the 21st century, so does design. As the borosilicate glass heating chamber lights up, it’s easy to see where the Firefly gets its name. Proprietary superalloy converts battery power into heat and passes through the stainless steel-plated vapor path. The Firefly chassis is made of aircraft aluminum and the window of the heating chamber is quartz crystal – if this doesn’t beat the pants off your dorm room pipe, we don’t know what does. It’s also a breeze to use, as the sleek magnetic lid makes loading and cleaning out the Firefly simple. The Firefly heats instantly, up to 400 degrees, and inhalation time is 5 to 15 seconds – the longer you inhale, the richer the burn. A fully-charged battery provides up to 50 puffs, considered great mileage for this kind of extracurricular activity. Firefly operates via an equally efficient high-powered lithium polymer battery; in 45 minutes the battery is charged, less time than it takes your delivery guy to show up.
Why We Love It
If there’s a Holy Grail of vaporizers, there’s a good chance the Firefly is a contender for the title (we’d also enter our long-time favorite Pax in that contest, as its portability is like no other). Other convection vaporizers exist, but this is the very first portable one. It looks fantastic – rather than the blown glass fantasy designs from our younger days, the Firefly reminds us of a cool-looking key to a hot car. The design is simple and understated, but we can tell there’s a lot going on under the hood. Other vaporizers are considered “ultra portable”, but the Firefly is packing a super efficient convection technique into something that’s perfect for the coffee table, or for carrying around discreetly in a bag or coat pocket. If you have a little extra room, the Firefly is certainly worth its weight in optimization. We also dig the removable battery, making it simple to swap out and fire up whenever the time is right.
While the price tag for Firefly is nothing to scoff at, over time we think the power of convection will end up saving lots of unnecessarily burned herbs and tobacco (and that stuff isn’t cheap). It’s a new dawn for herbal tolerance in America, so while enjoying these “lower pleasures”, we vote for doing it as intelligently as possible.
