Vape noob in desperate Firefly 2 help
I've had FF2 for several months now. The first week took a little bit of training myself and trying different things. Then I really started to enjoy it. Within the last 2 weeks, however, I can't seem to get the thing to make a decent cloud, and I know it's not my technique, because I had the technique down pat. SOMETHING changed in the performance of the unit. I cleaned the thing from head to toe, mouthpiece, bowl, all areas around and involving the lid. I have to work my ever loving ass off to get 1 decent hit out of an entire packing, and that is not what I paid over $300 for. I called the company, and the representative told me that, yes, I could send it in, but there probably wasn't anything that could be "fixed" because I told him that I can feel the unit heating up and I could verify that the laser drilled holes were not clogged (the glowing bowl could be clearly seen through all the tiny holes upon activating the heat mechanism. I even updated to the latest software with the power tuning on full and level five high heat profile) as well as the fact it seems that the lid is sealing properly, at least visually. I've sipped, slowed my thinking, summoned all my Jedi powers to achieve the Zen state of mind seemingly required to get a decent hit out of this thing, all to no avail. The unit really cannot be taken apart to view the air intake into the bowl, but my theory is something is awry there. It is unbelievable to me how the average customer who has any problems with this device is told it is their own fault, or at least that is insinuated. The only thing I can think of is perhaps if there is glue used to seat the ring around the bowl, or glue under the bowl and before the air intake beneath the bowl, it is melting and covering up part of that intake, throwing the whole thing off. But again, I can't take it apart so I can't see what is wrong. The problem seemed to worsen after the updated app with the power setting on full, which seems to support my theory. With the power tuning all the way up and the unit on level 5 (I use dry herbs only) it starts to get uncomfortable to even hold the unit, so I know the heating mechanism is working. But something in the airflow isn't right, and for me at this point, I am 99.9% certain it is not about technique. I am truly sorry I purchased this vape at this point, and I was REALLY excited about it for a while, when it was working.
