UPDATE: 10 Years in there’s no need to update this Volcano vaporizer review. I still use it everyday, and have yet to find a worthy replacement.
Well, it’s been 3 years of bliss since I first ordered my Volcano Vaporizer. After much internal debate I decided to get the Volcano Classic instead of the Volcano Digital. The decision was purely financial. Had I the extra cash, I definitely would have sprung the extra $ for the Digital Volcano. But the main reason is I think the LCD display is cool.
The classic Volcano is a very capable vaporizer. It warms up fast and produces consistent reliable heat. I use the Solid Valve System instead of the Easy Valve. I did this for economy as well – I can clean and replace the parts indefinetely. But there certainly are times I wish I had the luxury of the Easy Valve.I purchased my Volcano Vaporizer direct from the manufacturer – Storz & Bickel. Their US warehouse shipped my order fast and free and my Volcano Classic arrived within a day. I got the best price online by buying direct from the manufacturer, and the assurance I was getting the real deal.
Switching to vaporization has improved my health, and made it much easier to remain a non-smoker. I find I use much less material since the vaporization is so efficient at extracting the active ingredients. Plus the taste and flavor are much improved and not lost in the harshness of smoke.
I’ve had no problems, and with twice daily use for 3 years now – the Volcano Classic performs like new. My only expense to maintain the vaporizer has been replacing the bag and cleaning supplies.
Visually it’s an appealing addition to any room. The brushed stainless cone looks good in any decor.
