Storz & Bickel Volcano Hybrid vs. Classic: A side-by-side comparison review
When the Volcano Classic came out in 2000, it revolutionised the world of desktop vaporizers. Many b...
Many of you will know PuffCo thanks to their wildly popular and acclaimed PuffCo Plus concentrates pen vaporizer. If you dug that, then their next release, named Peak, will no doubt pique your interest.
PuffCo in-house design and engineering team’s only goal is to deliver the very best platform for concentrate consumption. They saw concentrates as the future of consumption because they contain the best parts of the plant. According to their site a good extraction process “leaves you with the most potent, flavourful, and healthy product”.
Up until recently the only choice for those wanting to unlock the potential of concentrates was a dab rig. Then, portable vapes started to integrate support for vaping concentrates. However, dab rigs are pretty crude technology wise and vaporizers designed for vaping flowers aren’t necessarily the greatest solution for vaping concentrates.
It’s no wonder then that the PuffCo Plus was such a success. High Times magazine were all over it describing it as “one of the best vape pens of all time” and it even made its way onto the Netflix hit - Disjointed (episode 9 - see if you can spot it).
PuffCo combined the futuristic technology of modern vapes with the high temperatures and water cooling functionality of a dab rig. The result is the spectacularly good looking “smart rig” the Peak.
It’s all stored in a purpose designed carry case. Inside of which you’ll find your 18cm high smart rig, with hand-blown glass, integrated LED band and a rugged silicon base.
Having seen one in the flesh I can truly testify the finish is nothing short of spectacular and they look like the kind of dab rig Tron 2.0 would be found using.
No matter how you like to consume there is a perfect setting for you. The popular “sesh-mode” - which was included in the PuffCo Plus - lets you extend your session, creating a social dab experience for you and your buddies.
Compared to the 3-minute process of heating and cooling times of typical dab rigs this is welcome news to concentrate lovers.
The smartware automatically adjusts heat times if your removable ceramic bowl is still hot.
The discreet light band provides battery and heat cycle indicators when needed, and conceals itself when they're not. Haptic feedback keeps your timing spot on so you get the perfect hit every time.
The battery fully charges in 2 hours and will last for around 30 glorious “dabs”.
At the time of writing the Peak is not available in any markets. However, Europeans can get an email notification of when the PuffCo Peak is available from VapoShop.
We’re hoping to start shipping in April 2018.
