I am an user of original Firefly(1). I got FF2, because it is inconvenient to combine microdosing and vaping using the only one vaporizer. Original FF1 was built like a tank. I dropped it several times and nothing happened. I don´t think FF2 could survive the same. I like the old school look of original Firefly. FF2 still looks fine, I just don´t like the plastic mouthpiece – they created luxury-like design finished with piece of plastic. Just a matter of esthetics… However, the most fundamental problem with FF2 is zero connectivity with my SamsungGalaxyJ3. They developed temperature profiles and finally, they killed everything with this „smart“ (pronounce p-o-i-n-t-l-e-s-s) temp control via app. Even if functional, what is the benefit of the app over built-in switch or button? Is it convenience? No, the user´s dependence on his/her phone is far from any convenience. Is it reliability? Absolutely no. There is no guarantee that your phone connects to FF2 - the list of (in)compatible phones https://www.thefirefly.com/app is not complete. Firefly support is cooperative but helpless – their final response was „SamsungGalaxyJ3 is not compatible with the app, sorry“. They keep incompatibility issues hide from potetial customers – up to now, GalaxyJ3 is not on the list incompatible phones. Bussines rules… So basically, my FF2 is stuck on 204°C. If I need to change the temperature setting I do it using the phone of my friend (in case I meet him). Too bizzare? This is the Firefly´s "smart" innovation in real life. Despite of the cripple temp control, probably still the best thing for 1-2 draw (micro)dosing.
The Firefly2 vaporizer works like a charm. It is a high quality product that is compact with a sleek polished look. It is easy to use, and easy to clean up. Convection heating instead of burning preserves the true essence of the herb allowing for the intake of the full body flavor of your favorite herbs. The efficient and long lasting battery recharges quickly and is ready to use in under 45-minutes. The high tech glass heating and supply system provides a smooth chemical free vapor path. The Firefly2 has an APP to manage heating profiles for different densities and qualities of herb. It is economical and fun and one of the best portable vaporizers on the market.
This is my first vape and I decided to not waste time and go for the best immediately. The FF2 is a quality built device, well packaged and stylish. Its ideal for a very fast hit and go situation and this is the main reason I got this one. I did my first trial runs with a long time volcano user, but we both had the same impressions. I'll skip to the issues only as those are what you need to live with: 1.) Immediately I had to upgrade the firmware which required me to also remove the battery to get it to work 2.) I got no clouds unless I used the "high setting" which also showed visible burn marks 3.) Despite the unit being "ready" to use, the first draw is really weak, but has the most flavor. You need to hit it at least 2x for it to show any clouds. Once it gets warmed up it starts to become very enjoyable. I'm just not used to not getting clouds. 4.) On a few occasions I've had to remove the battery it to get the FF2 to work again 5.) The battery lasts for about 2 well used bowls 6.) We found ourselves having to stir the bowl nearly every 2nd draw 7.) Its super expensive and then I also had to pay another CHF 60.- for import duties, it would have been great to choose a shipping value, ouch! 8.) I wish I could charge the spare battery while I'm using the primary, but that battery must be in the device to charge it 9.) I can't seem to change the heat profile without using my iPhone which is a bit inconvenient 10.) I wish there was an accessory to attach this to a bubbler. Overall with some practice and understanding its still a great vape and like any new car needs a bit of miles before it drives well. The taste is a completely unique experience on its own.
