The Firefly 2 is a God Among Vapes

Latest news

    Firefly 2 is a vape defined by its simplicity. There are two buttons — and you hold both to turn it on and set it to work. That’s it. You have a battery, mouthpiece, lid, and the chassis of the thing. No filters or screens. No extra tools or fiddly bits. Just you, your ground herb of choice, and some of the smoothest vapor around.

    So what makes this so special? In a word: everything.

    For starters, the Firefly is visually striking. It’s simple, a little bulky, but glows with a gentle, titian hue. The glow comes from the heating element itself, and the light is scattered through the frosted glass of the bowl. Even better — the bowl doesn’t need to be cleaned in the same way the ovens of traditional vapes do. That’s because, unlike most vaporizers, the Firefly heats air before it hits your herbs. With no direct contact between a heating element or oven and your material, you’ll get a more even “burn” with a softer flavor. At the same time, the Firefly’s vapor is rich and full-bodied. Even better, the convection-style heater doesn’t keep roasting your herbs after you’re done with a pull — a major source of waste for vape users.

    Using it is simple — just hold the two capacitive touch buttons (overkill?) down until the green light is solid and inhale slowly. Heat-up never takes more than a few seconds, and once the light came on, I’d challenge myself to pull until it shut off (about fifteen seconds). My little game had a dual purpose, though — as you pull, again unlike with standard vapes, the heating temperature increases. This is what gives it the thick, heady vapor — as the temp rises, you’ll run through a blend of different compounds that aerosolize at different temperatures. Odd as it sounds, the only way I can describe it is rising coaster of flavor. But, there you go.

    As things heat up, you’d suspect that the Firefly would scorch the lungs, but that’s where another clever facet of the design comes into play. The Firefly cools vapor by passing it over a large (relatively speaking) glass plate. That allows the vapor to dissipate heat, dramatically dropping in temperature before it hits the sensitive tissue of your precious abdominal internal air sacs. Not only is that just a cool, geeky way to solve the problem, but it makes the assembly super easy to clean.

    Most vapes, like the QuickDraw 500 have several pieces that you’ll need to scrub out. Their heating chambers are also often difficult to reach and clean effectively unless you’ve got a lot of q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Comparatively, the wide-mouthed bowl is easy to scoop out and tidy-up, and then you just need to quick the glass vapor path a quick wipe down every now and then, and you’re golden. Ostensibly, I should be cleaning the mouthpiece too, but after some pretty consistent use, I haven’t noticed anything that really needs it.

    That’s basically it, honestly. The Firefly is amazing because it’s simple and it works. Vapor quality cannot be overstated, plus, it heats up so fast I don’t notice at times. Each draw is thick and potent — filled with all the rich flavonoids and volatile compounds you could want. Plus, without having to heat your material continuously, you don’t waste anything.

    If there’s one tiny downside, it’s… no wait, yeah no there isn’t one. You don’t need anything else, really. You can download the app and crank the temperature slightly higher, but that’s not a big thing because the vape runs through all the temps you need with each full draw anyway. It can burn concentrates too, using a special pad if you’re into that kind of thing. And it comes with two batteries so you can always have one charged and ready to go.

    It’s definitely on the expensive end at $330, but the experience is immediately engaging. Once you start, you’re not going to want anything else. I speak from experience.
