If you really want a top of the line desktop vaporizer, you can’t go wrong with the Volcano. There are dozens of other knock offs that might be cheaper, but none of them can come close in terms of performance and overall durability. If you want the Porsche of vaping, this is it.
The Volcano vaporizer provides dense, potent vapor that is easily controlled by manipulating your herbs. If you use finely ground herb and pack it well, you will get amazing thick vapor that is unlike anything you have ever experienced. While this model has been around for a while, it still is a fan favorite and one that I personally use on a regular basis. Even after years of regular use, it performs like it did the day I took it out of the box. However, I have worked hard to maintain it well and that brings us to the next big perk of the Volcano… it’s very easy to clean! You just brush out the herb chamber when you are a finished vaping and you’re done. There is no residue build up and no complicated cleaning routine as long as you stay on top of it and clean it well after each use. That really makes the difference in how long any vaporizer will last.
You can get the Volcano in a classic or digital design. If you opt for the digital, there is a digital gauge on the front that you use to control the temperature. On the classic model, there is just a simple dial. So which one is better? Well, they both perform great, but the digital Volcano does seem to have more consistent temperatures with less fluctuation.
When you order the Volcano, you will have to choose between the Easy Valve or the Solid Valve styles. I prefer the Easy Valve, but it’s really a matter of preference. If you opt for the Easy Valve model, the balloons are already assembled and the herb chamber comes in two pieces. The kit has five balloons and each one will last around 4 months. After that, you just order replacement balloons as needed. The Solid Valve style is a little more complicated, but you can customize your balloons to the size you want. It’s not really a feature that I think is important because the Easy Valve balloons are already designed at the right size for a powerful vape. However, if you prefer a different balloon size, then you have that option with the Solid Valve style.
Some people are turned off by the high price tag on the Volcano, but it’s really worth the extra money. It’s kind of like buying a car… that old Volkswagen might get you where you want to go, but the Porsche will do it faster and you will look way cooler in the process. That’s why we call the Volcano the Porsche of vaporizers. I love that the Volcano is designed with extreme attention to detail. Each unit is built by hand and it is truly a beautiful model that you will want to proudly display on your desk rather than hiding it in the closet or drawer.
Vaping with the Volcano is really simple. Just pack your herb into the chamber and then set your temperature. Attach a balloon on top of the heating chamber and wait for about 30 seconds while it fills up with vapor. Then attach your mouthpiece and you are ready to vape. It’s really that simple.
