Volcano Vaporizer: Still Setting The Vape Standard
When it comes to vaporizers, it’s hard to find one better than the Volcano. Made by German company Storz and Bickel, the Volcano is regularly featured as one of the best-reviewed desktop vapes on the market. And that’s not just based on reputation.
The Volcano has built its significant reputation based on quality and accessibility. With its customizable temperature, solid base, and valve system, there is little waste in the process of using it. Its efficiency is second to none as bags of milky vapor are consistently produced even after years of use.
And years of use are what you can expect out of the Volcano. With a sturdy stainless steel base, optimal design and a standard three year warranty, there are no risks to adding the Volcano to your collection. Odds are that you will get through your three year warranty and your vaporizer will still work as good as new. It’s not the cheapest option on the market, but for the combination of quality and lifespan, you won’t find many better vaporizers than the Volcano.
The Volcano Vaporizer comes in two different types: classic and digital. For those looking to save long-term on a vape without a lot of moving parts, the Classic Volcano Vaporizer is perfect. If you’re looking for convenience and ease of use, however, the digital is the right one for you.
Both types of the Volcano boast a solid base that’s roughly 8” in diameter. After giving time to heat up the base using the respective temperature settings, the dry herbs are then vaporized with the resulting vapor rising into an attached bag. Once filled, the bag is detached, the valve is placed, and the vapor is ready to be drawn.
Of the two, the Volcano Classic is the cheaper option. It features a knob that can be used to control the temperature of the base, and heats up a little faster than its counterpart. The Digital Volcano Vaporizer, meanwhile, has an LED display that accurately shows the current temperature along with the set, desired temperature for the base. It also gives more accurate temperature readouts than the classic model, making it an extremely consistent vape.
Along with the differing styles of bases, there are also two different kinds of valves for this vaporizer. The valves are the mouthpieces that you attach to the bags when you’re ready to inhale the vapor, and the two options for the Volcano differ significantly.
The solid valve is made to be used with reusable bags. The main draw for this style is that the bags can be re-sized. This allows you to customize your vaping experience to how much dry herb you’re planning to use, as having too much airspace can hurt your vapor quality. The valve needs to be cleaned occasionally, and bags will need to be replaced as they can give you up to 100 uses each (each set comes with three meter rolls, which can be used for up to six bags), but replacement bags are cheap and won’t need to be purchased too often.
For the vape enthusiast looking for ultimate convenience, at the sacrifice of customizability, the easy valve is what you’re looking for. Although the size of the bags cannot be changed, this valve requires minimal cleaning, making it a much easier process. The bags are more expensive to replace, but overall the easy valve lives up to its name.
Whether you’re looking for a personalized vaping experience or to get the job done with as little work as possible, the Volcano Vaporizer is right for anyone. Although it’s a little more expensive than other options, the reliability, customizability and durability of the Volcano make it worth every penny. Whether you’re an experienced vape user or you’re looking for a new way to use your dry herbs, the quality of the Volcano makes it a worthwhile purchase.
