Storz and Bickel's Volcano vaporizer has valve systemThe German company, namely, Storz & Bickel introduces its volcano vaporizer as a durable and high quality performer. This 800 pound device is available at $500 + for the classic vape and $600+ for the digital one. Although the average user may find it expensive, it is a value for money product. It is unique compared to other vaporizers in features. This product is available in two different varieties.

The Classic volcano vaporizer features a dial design and enables the user to adjust the temperature. It is numbered from 1 to 9 and there is complimentary manual showing a diagram which explains the way numbers point out temperature ranges. As per the website of Storz and Bickel, the classic piece has this temperature range varying from 130°C to 230°C which is equivalent to 266° to 446°F.

In the digital vape, one would find big and conveniently readable LED displays. There are large greenish + and – buttons for adjusting the temperature manually. This digital version comes with a handy feature called automatic switch off feature. Here, the temperature varies from 40°C to 230°C. The different set of temperature ranges in these two has a thing to achieve with digital efficiency of this volcano digit.

There is Solid Valve and Easy Valve balloon technology in the Digital and Classic versions respectively. It is only a simple matter of individual preference here. With this Solid Valve, the user is ensured of durability, re-usability and choosing the balloon size. Although it is cheaper compared to Easy Valve, it requires maintenance which involves taking apart and cleaning. Easy Valve requires minimal maintenance and consists of pre-set balloon. All the users will make savings with Solid Valve as the balloons could be purchased differently. With the Easy Valve, the balloons need to be substituted along with the valve.

Both these valve systems come with different features which will benefit the user undoubtedly. However, using any one for a year would reveal the real utility of these different valve systems. The technology should be durable enough to stay as long as possible. By pushing the valve of this volcano vaporizer connected to this balloon, the vapor releases to be properly inhaled. This vaporizer only uses the balloon and there isn’t any wand whip. Wand whip and vape chamber attachments can be fitted with this classic and digital version.

A bigger filling chamber means that you can insert 2-2.5 gms into it. However, it is advisable not to indulge in such a thing. Tight packing isn’t necessary here for it’s not a bong or smoking bowl. It is a better idea to have some space for hot air within its heating chamber for circulation and properly vaping your buds. Those who aren’t looking for a budget friendly volcano vaporizer are welcome to purchase it. Owing to a solid build quality, this herbal volcano vaporizer will be a long lasting product. It can also serve in dual roles like a restaurant or kitchen appliance. For the aspiring users, it could appear expensive.

Official review of Magic Flight Launch Box

Official review of Magic Flight Launch Box
Magic Flight Launch Box is a decent product. However, it may let down those with high expectation. It is suitable for those who want a discreet and cheap portable vaporizer for the times they cannot access their home unit. The competitive price of MFLB makes it even more considerable. But it is not for those who want high-quality vapour since MFLB is effective only on dry-herbs. The price seems expensive when observed from that perspective. In fact, hardly any portable vaporizer emits high-quality vapour as desired by many. Moreover, MFLB has not been launched with any promise for improvement either.

The Package

MFLB is in a small white box that is covered into another box by the courier service vaproviders. Inside the white box is another sleek box made of tin, and black in colour. It can remind many of collecting hockey and baseball cards as children. The logo of Magic Flight printed with bright neon on the lid makes it playful without losing its professional character. The black felt lining at the box-interior makes it suitable for use while travelling. Other items that comprise the package are: cleaning brush – 1 unit, draw stem – 1 unit, battery caps – 2 units, charge station – 1 unit and charged NiMH battery – 2 units. AA batteries do not work with MFLB.


The batteries can be simply plugged into the outlet for recharging and into MFLB for powering it. Each battery can provide power for 2 – 3 packs. Though it is usually sufficient, especially with option to alternate, longer life is expected from a portable product that is built to be used while travelling. The Flight Guide is helpful and provides details on maintenance, theory and techniques.

Grinding the herbs fine is the first task. Uneven herbs do not vaporize uniformly and are wasted. The ground herbs should be dumped not exceeding than the depth of the trench. The best feature of MFLB is its rapidity. As soon as the lid is snapped and battery is inserted, the vapour appears to generate. What others do in minutes, MFLB does in seconds. So, it takes around one-tenth of the time taken by other vaporizers to show effect. A small light on the surface rear to the trench glows to indicate the engagement of the battery. Mixing the herb after each hit is recommended for better result.


MFLB cannot preserve the herb-taste. It creates definitely noticeable smell when used for sipping. It is not suitable for good-quality herbs since the experience of smoking does not vary. Those who have newly entered the domain of vaporizers and need acquaintance before using V-Tower and/or Volcano  will find MFLB useful. However, it cannot be considered as a replacement to vaporizers that support combustion too. It resists wind, and so, it is suitable to be used during short walks.

Perhaps, MFLB is stealthier than all of the portable vaporizers. Typically, 1 is pack sufficient for a single person. Magic Flight Launch vaporizer outstands in terms of customer service too.
