Portable Vaporizers

  • Which dry herb vaporizer produces the coolest temperature vapour, the Pax or Firefly?

    actually I have the MFLB and the old arizer solo. I was thinking the firefly or pax would be cooler than either that I have already. I will look into the bong thank you!
  • Which dry herb vaporizer produces the coolest temperature vapour, the Pax or Firefly?

    Out of those two the Firefly has cooler vapor. The more surface area and longer the vapor path between the herb chamber and the mouthpiece the cooler the vapor will be. If you run any vape through a bong the vapor will be much cooler.
    Is this going to be your first dry herb vape?
  • Which dry herb vaporizer produces the coolest temperature vapour, the Pax or Firefly?

    my throat easily gets irritated and burns, which dry herb vape produces the coolest vapor? i'm highly interested in either the Firefly or Pax. thanks!
  • Atomizer & Mod Box for Concentrates?

    My next endeavor will be a Firefly 2.fatbiker

    Other than a dedicated "desktop" dab rig, it is my goto :)
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    I did the upgrade from the original FF2 to the almost +.

    I am VERY HAPPY with the upgrade. It is a significant improvement. Calibrated better. Less draw resistance. Better vapor production at any temp.
    For $30 it is well worth it.
    They only hassle is they take their time with the upgrade... Don't expect Amazon Prime type turn around time.
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    So has anyone sent their FF2 in to be “upgraded” to the +? I am considering buying a used FF2 that I would then send in to be serviced / upgraded.

    Do they clean the device or anything when serviced?

    I think you are better off getting a new + version because of warranty and getting a fresh battery. But you can find good deals if you wait for a used one to pop up. As I have stated before...I have 3 FF2's....one FF2 is older (maybe 2 years old), one FF2 is a jetblack version (so manufacture date is not too old), and the other is a FF2+.

    The oldest FF2 has a more restricted draw than the jetblack FF2, and the jetblack FF2 hits almost like the FF2+ with draw resistance. So I can see why so many said they could not tell the diff of the draw resistance between the FF2 and the FF2+. But if you have an older FF2....maybe there is the difference as FF may have actually changed the screen before the FF2+ actually launched.

    So it will be a toss up to spend extra to get the FF2+ over a used FF2. If you can find a little used and not too old FF2 for a good deal...go for it......try to get a jetblack one to be sure it is the most recent production run version. I do not know how to tell from packaging though from early FF2's to the last produced ones.

  • Atomizer & Mod Box for Concentrates?

    I also have a press and make homemade Rozen. I was on the same hunt about six months ago. Then I decided on the HVT Sequoia and box man. At the end of the day I am less than impressed. Vapor production is a hit or miss based on the amount of material. Furthermore, the vapor is hot and not flavorful. I think there are much better alternatives out there. My next endeavor will be a Firefly 2.

    The quartz seems to cause the rosin to splatter inside. It splatters all over the TAF cap. I draw slow and always keep it upright so I know that’s not causing it. I may order a TI bucket instead.
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    Welcome to the club. I feel like I need to get a Plus, if only to be "modern" lol :nerd:EconMan

    haaaaa I can not believe you are still putting it off...

    Ok...... 2 things about the FF2+ that I like over the regular ones.

    I first thought it was dumb to make such a big huge indicator light window in the lid. I felt that it didn't need to be so big because it will hurt stealth use if you can not turn the light off if you want. Not really a problem for my use now, but now after using the + for awhile.... I like how big the window is because now I can see it more clearly when it blinks while using in sunlight. Sometimes I cant tell if the little light on the FF2's is blinking or solid in sun light.

    Also, even more apt for your liking Econ......I luv the window as a reclaim indicator. haaaaa As soon as the window is half covered in reclaim.....I go for the freebie scrape off! :cool:

    Cheers guys! Thanks for sharing your experience with both. I'm now leaning more towards the FF2+jungpunk420

  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    Cheers guys! Thanks for sharing your experience with both. I'm now leaning more towards the FF2+, as I have enough "high" maintenance vapes already. I always give the bowl a quick wipe after every sess! Stealth is not much of an issue as I live in Cannabis Canada!
    Cheers again guys! I can always count on this community to give the straight goods! :heart:
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    I faced the same choice over a year ago. I chose FF2 and no regrets. It is still my most used flower vape and my favorite oils portable.

    But I've used the MV1 several times and liked it very much. It's a fine vape. I would guess, on average, the statistical probability of a person liking the MV1 is higher than that for the FF2 ??
    I like the FF2 mostly because it produces great tasting vapor, and I value great taste over any other variable except from getting high (if I didn't get high, I wouldn't do it).

    That said, 15 months of daily usage and I am absolutely a FF2 fan :starstruck:
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    but I also take out the stupid screen in it as well. Did you try that ever?LabPong

    One of the first things I did was remove that screen to help airflow. I find it more acceptable if I hold the mouthpiece with my teeth, weird I know, but otherwise I just get it adding to the flavour. I've also washed it in everything possible but come to the conclusion it's pointless. Seems everyone has a vape, some more than one, that no matter what you do they won't like it.

    I also was using whole small nugs, turning after a hit or two and then breaking down. The problem it has though is the large glass surface just gets oily and flower will stick to it. I guess you need to clean it down after every use to avoid that.
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    Cl4ud3.....I never found the plastic mp to be an issue with taste of my flower....but I also take out the stupid screen in it as well. Did you try that ever?

    But you are right....the FF2's are a pia to clean with flower...especially if it is good sticky stuff. This is why I started just using whole nugs...then slowly breaking them down with a stir after each hit. Keeps the whole thing so much cleaner that way for me.

    Oh....and I also do not care for the way you have to hold it sometimes....it will limit your stealth ability for sure....that and the need for a longer draw. But you can edit the 2 buttons used for firing the heater......if you set to one button hit only to fire it......you can half palm it over the top and get a half stealth hit....lol
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    Never liked my FF2 and fixing the draw rate by 33% won't change that I'm afraid. The way you have to hold to use it, or vaping stance, is uncomfortable to me. Flower just makes a mess when you have to stir it and I don't get the great flavour everyone keeps saying about because of the plastic mouthpiece.
    I simply prefer the MV1
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    If your going with flower....I would choose the MV1....but it comes at a cost of cleaning and more parts to deal with. Also...wear factor is an issue on the MV1's......though they will support warranty very well...you might have to deal with waiting to send it in and such. Biggest problem is the door latches either breaking off or wearing down and not locking the door closed. I used the MV1 for beta testing for over 4 months.....been using the FF2, and FF2+ now for a bit as well.

    If you are at all going to do concentrates like rosin and gooey stuff...the FF2 hands down! I mainly use my FF2's for that....and my FF2+ is only used for that. I have a jet black FF2 from later production and an older one that is probably a couple years old by now. They old one has more draw resistance on it than the jet black FF2 that is maybe a year old at the most....and it does not draw any harder than the new FF2+. So I think the 33% more free'er draw.....maybe happened prior to the FF2+ on the main screen holes.

    I never use the mp screens for either flower or concentrates.....I just load flower with no grinding or very little and do not draw hard. But I feel opposite of @acstorfer.....The MV1 gave me big hits with a short draw....with the FF2 and flower....I have to draw twice as long. My MV1 always ran hotter than normal....but there are ways to tweak the heating pattern.....that is if your MV1's software works ok. I found the heating and software to be pretty inconsistent....so that is an issue you could face as well.
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    I’be only used the 2. I cannot speak of personal experience with the +, but I hear meh about the better airflow.

    A lot of folk don’t mind the flow resistance. It’s just for me a deal breaker. All I can say is both are fantastic performers. I will say inhale control is more important with the Firefly. It’s all technique that’s figured out.
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    Cheers for the info! Was the Firefly 2 the new plus? Apparently the draw resistance is down 33% on the new FF2+. Cost wise, I found both of them for a price of $280 Canadian. Taking these factors into consideration, would you have kept the FF2 and gotten rid of the Ghost?
    Thanks again for the 411 on your experience with both acstorfer!
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    I’ve had both. Both are excellent. Firefly wins on portability, concentrates, a shorter draw time, and flavor. Ghost MV1 wins on smoothness and draw resistance. Both have excellent flavor, the Firefly wins by just a smudge.

    I had to decide between one because of cost. I chose the Ghost. I’m glad I did, but both are excellent products. Oh, cleaning ease goes to firefly. Battery life goes to Ghost. Both of them need at minimum the fast charger, and both should have a second battery, but not nearly as important as the charger.

    Some people hate the crucibles for the Ghost. I grew to prefer them for the convenience of prefilling. I felt stirring was important for both.
  • Ghost MV1 vs Firefly 2+

    High all! Looking for my first TRUE convection vape and trying to decide between the Ghost MV1 vs the Firefly 2+...Thoughts? Suggestions?
    Thanks for the help and... STAY UP!!! ;)
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    Econ....actually I would rather be caught with a oil vape....like a cart....and just say it is CBD. lol

    In other news......I have tried the S&B dosing capsule pad again.......NOT !

    Giving up....it is too porous compared to the stock FF2 one. I put maybe a medium load of rosin on the S&B pad and it seeped to the bottom of the oven in 4 draws......get way too much on the screen to continue and let it get clogged up. Besides.....they are too wide and thick to place well and then reload and put back in.

    Taste was worse too...probably because it got on the screen and darkened it all up from there for the taste end of it. But I could tell a diff when I was cigar puffing on it to warm it up and put the rosin on when it can melt in. Not sure if the taste was because of how much thicker and open the S&B one is in comparison to the tight compact much thinner FF version.

    Put a fresh clean FF one back in.....taste is back.....and no goop on the screen again after 2 loads through it. I often flip it over between loads and rotate every 3 hits or so pending on how much and where it was on the pad.
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)




    Yeah, I got balls... vaped a PCKT+ at a police station.... but not hitting the FF2 as I walk into Costco..... not in this nutty state run by political morons.

    Edit (afterthought).
    Perhaps the FF2 here is less risky? The cart's oil here is considered a "derivative" and is automatically a felony. Same with pressed rosin. hmmmmm ?
    Higher chance of getting caught I suppose, but conditional logic.... once caught, better to be caught with flower than oil.
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    Just saw a guy palming while hitting a ff2 walking into Lowes. If your a member let us know if it was you :lol:52

    haaaaa no way.....man...a cart maybe..but a FF2.... :monkey:

    You should of went up to him and asked if he was using the pad or just flower..... :cool:

  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    I might need to go back and try the S&B dosing pads again.....I did not like them the first time I tried a month or so ago....they are much thicker and probably work better to hold more abv and getting more sessions out of them before cleaning them out?

    I was so blasted on last nights stream with the FF2+ and some pressed rosin......I pretty much felt more sedated than Bud was.....or looked..haaaa Sorry if I was annoying to anyone....I was hyper in chat though.... while being so "fine". :sparkle:
  • Which vape would you want to hit in a bong most

    @LabPong G43, Mighty, Crafty, Tera, Grasshopper, Pax, Ghost Mv1, Firefly 2.

    This was the first time I ever bought a mid tier Vape. I was going to try healthy rips edge, boundless tera, or ariser solo 2. Went with the Tera because I love to vapor bong!
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    Oh man, so glad you clarified this for me. I was off base a lot. Thanks!
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)



    Warning! They are NOT "S&B Liquid pads" (like for the Mighty) but "S&B Liquid Pads For Dosing Capsules". They are the ones designed to go INSIDE the dosing capsules. They are fantastic. Twice as thick as the OEM ones, but same radius.
  • Firefly 2+ (FF2)

    Hey, I really appreciate your response. I am not familiar with S&B liquid pads but I'll look for them online. I don't mind soaking with iso since that is the way I clean my glass with thorough rinses.
    Thanks again!
