What is a Volcano Vape?
The Volcano Classic is arguably the best of its kind. This workhorse unit stands the test of time, as German manufacturers Storz and Bickel build these units to last. There are many users who still have the same Volcano classic they purchased way back in the early 2000’s when the unit first came out. That is an ultimate test to the quality and longevity of this desktop vaporizer.
Classic Volcano Vaporizer Convection Heating
The Volcano Classic’s temperature ranges from 270 to 440 degrees Fahrenheit. This unit uses three LED lights to indicate heat, control, and air. The red button/ light on the left powers up the unit and starts heating. The orange/ yellow button indicates the unit is working when on, and turns off when it’s ready to go. The green button on the right turns on the fan and lets you vape away. The fan can be a bit on the noisy side. The unit takes three full minutes to heat up, which is a bit long, but the wait time is worth it. The vapor quality satisfies even the toughest critics.
Volcano Solid Valve vs. Easy Valve
When you buy either the Classic or the Hybrid Volcano, you will choose one of two balloon bag kits. Both the easy valve and the solid valve kits come with sturdy parts that last as long as possible, and won’t smell bad provided you clean the device properly and often.
If you go with the easy valve kit, you get mouthpiece and bag kits that are meant for disposal and are easily replaced when it’s time to do so. You will know when it’s time for that, because there will be a noticeable stench. The easy valve kit is aptly named, because replacing and disposing of the parts are simple. There are fewer components that makeup the easy kit, making it more accessible for and easier to understand for newbies. With it comes to the bowl on both of these Volcanoes which can fit up to 4 grams of dry herbs, its high grade quality and thick plastic like you’ll find with Storz and Bickel’s portable vaporizers – the Mighty+ and the Crafty+.
As far as the solid valve kit, it comes with thicker and heavier balloon bags and mouthpieces than that of the easy kit. You also get more components and moving parts that might need to be assembled. The main parts of the solid valve kit comes were designed to be washed and used multiple times. Of course, you can always replace any part that might need it.
How to use the Volcano Classic Vaporizer?
Unlike the Volcano Hybrid, the Volcano Classic desktop vaporizer uses a super easy three button setup that you will control with your hands. These are the heat dial, the heat button, and the air pump button. Once you turn the vape on, set your heat dial and press heat, and then after a few minutes you can place your balloon onto the chamber and press the air button to fill it in just seconds.
High Efficiency Extraction
With a large and wide chamber, the hot air that passes through your chamber will leave little waste because of the even heat distribution. Because the valve is airtight when you’re filling balloons, all of the air will pass right into the balloon. If saving money on your weed while still getting amazing hits is important to you, definitely consider the Classic as your next cannabis accessory upgrade! With a large and spacious aluminum heating chamber that can fit up to one gram, you’ll be able to fill several balloons full of excellent vapor quality.
