Today I’m checking out the Firefly vaporizer – a high end portable vaporizer with a high end price in the $200 – $300 range.
It’s marketed as being a’high quality vaporizer’ that’s capable of producing a ‘high quality’ vapor but is this really the case?
In today’s full Firefly vaporizer review I’ll let you know what’s good about it, what’s bad and whether you should buy it.
My first impression of this device was that it definitely feels and looks like a ‘high end’ portable aesthetically.
The packaging is glossy, the instructions are well done and the device itself definitely feels like it’s made out of quality materials and not just some crappy plastic.
The red color is extremely vibrant and shiny and it even just looks and feels expensive.
The actual design kind of reminds me a bit of the old Nokia 3310 phones if anyone aside from me remembers those.
It even has a removable battery similar to a phone which is pretty cool because you can buy a few and rotate between them.
On The Heavier Side…
The next thing that you’ll probably notice about the device is that it definitely has got a bit of weight to it. It’s easily larger and definitely heavier than many of the other portable vaporizers that I’ve been reviewing lately. In fact it feels as though it’s around double the weight of the DaVinci Ascent and about triple that of the Pax.
That being said it does fit still in your pocket it’s just that it might weight you down a little bit.
Furthermore although the device is heavier it does f fees like a real ‘unit’ and feels tough and like it could withstand a few knocks without breaking which is always good knowing my track record with dropping expensive things on the ground.
Slight learning curve…
The Firefly isn’t the easiest vaporizer to use and often requires a few goes to get it right if you’ve never used it before.
There’s a definite ‘technique’ to it that can take a little bit longer to learn than other vaporizers.
However that being said it’s not rocket science or anything – it just might not make it the best party vape.
Where this vape really shines through…
This vaporizer isn’t the smaller or the lightest or vaporizer out there. It’s also not the easiest to use.
But one area where it does stand out is with it’s vape quality and this thing gives off a seriously good vape you know how to use it.
I’d even go as far as to say that this is one of the best tasting portables that I’ve tried to date.
And if you’re someone who isn’t so much looking for the most stealthy or lightweight device but instead are all about that vapor quality then I think that you will be seriously impressed with what the Firefly has to offer.
And so for all of these reasons I’m going to give the Firefly an overall vape rating of 8.5/10.
In a nutshell here’s what I like about the device:
- Really nice aesthetics. Looks stylish and high quality.
- Strong and feels like it could withstand a few knocks.
- Amazing vapor quality. Definitely one of the best tasting portables on the market right now.
- Removable battery. Great for stocking up on batteries so that you’re never without a vape.
Here’s what I wasn’t so ‘crash hot’ on about the Firefly vape:
- Larger/heavier than many other portable vapes.
- Higher learning curve to get the technique right than with other devices.
