Steep Price But Is It Worth It?
The Volcano Desktop Vaporizer has been built to be easy to use and is very stable. It has a pyramid shape which allows you to be able to place it on a table without having to worry about it tipping over. Its components are made of stainless steel which makes it not easy to topple. The volcano gets 5 stars for our desktop vaporizers in our best vaporizers in 2017 review. The cone tip also makes it practical and easy to attach tubes or balloons or anything else.
It’s a great system and features the finest in German engineering that has been built to last for many years. It comes with a three-year warranty. There are no cheap plastic parts, but just high-grade components like solid steel.
The product is available in two distinct version. There is the Digital Volcano and the Classic. They have pretty small differences, however for most people most likely the price will be the major factor.
The two versions have a $100 price difference. There really isn’t much to justify the higher price. It is true that the digital version will be more precise.
The exact temperature can be inputted, and you can achieve the heat you would like much easier compared with the classic version. However, the Classic is an excellent vaporizer, and for most people will get the desired temperature close enough.
Also, the digital version has an auto-shut off feature. It is nice. However, it doesn’t come anywhere close to justifying a higher price.
In our experience, the Classic also performs better and is somewhat more durable. The Classic also heats up just a bit faster, and the Digital has a slightly higher tendency for breaking down (although the warranty can cover that).
The differences between the two are pretty negligible in our opinion. We recommend that you go with the classic version. Now if you have extra money to burn and like the bells and whistles, then you can go for the digital. However, most people do not.
The Volcano has been designed with a couple of different kinds of vaping methods. They are all relatively easy to use after you get the hang of using the volcano vaporize ultimate kit. Just be aware that it takes a couple of minutes for the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer to heat up completely.
This is especially true if it’s set to one of the highest temperature setting. For tabletop vaporizers that are fairly common, and the system needs that amount of time to provide you with decent vapor. However, if you are accustomed to something faster, like a pen or portable vape, it can be somewhat frustrating.
To get started, press the heat button to turn the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer on. You can set whatever temperature you desire. Then to completely heat up, give it three to five minutes. The light turns red when you press the heat button. The light goes out once it reaches the temperature that you set.
You can get your oils or herb prepared, while it is heating up. You will need to take the top off of your Volcano to place your herb chamber inside of it. Next, attach the balloon and valve onto the upper part of your Volcano.
After the balloon has filled up, you can remove it and then attach your mouthpiece onto the valve. Be sure not to fill the balloon up too full. Otherwise, it may burst. Press on the green temperature button that is located in the front part of the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer to stop it from filling any further.
When you are using the Volcano one thing to keep in mind is that you might want to remove the ingredient chamber after you finish taking a session or filling a balloon. If you don’t, you might quickly burn through your whole supply of oils or herbs and not get to enjoy very much of them. In between balloons it isn’t necessary to turn the Volcano off, but you should take your herbs out and shut down the fan.
Whips can only be used with the Volcano when you buy a vapor dome or another similar product that is outside of the regular manufacturer of the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer. In our experience, the vapor did not seem as good through a whip. However it does provide an experience that is more personalized, and it’s easier controlling the amount of vapor that your ingredients are creating.
You may attach as many as four whips at the same time if you want to share with your friends. The Volcano is still heated up the same way. However, you attach your vapor dome and whips to the valve located on top of your Volcano. Nothing needs to be removed to enjoy the experience.
The Volcano creates some of the finest vapor that you can find. Vapor production will, of course, depend on the quality of the ingredients that you use, how finely it is all ground up and temperature that you set the vaporizer to as well as some other factors. However, if you would like to get the most from your oils or herbs, then the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer definitely can do this.
It is a major part of why it is worth the larger price tag (or $100 more when you purchase the (Digital version). The key to getting the best possible vapor from whatever you use is to learn how your supply of ingredients and temperature work together.
The precise temperature controls on the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer make that possible. A knob is turned on the Classic to change the temperature. It allows you to get fairly close to what you want without a lot of hassles. The Digital comes with a push button system that is more exact so that you can set the temperature to the precise heat that you want. However, you should get some great vapor either way.
A large heating area is provided which spread the heat out and makes sure that everything heats evenly. You receive a consistent vapor, rather than vapor mixed with patches of empty air. Each draw you take really feels perfect.
That also means that the Volcano Desktop Vaporizer is superb at delivering all of the various health benefits that are associated with vaporizers. Consumers need to be aware of the fact that herbs can be burnt by vaporizers, which can result in combustion. So it’s important to maintain the temperature not overheating.
If the herbs get burnt and combust, you aren’t any better off than people who smoke. The entire point of using vaporizers is avoiding all of the carcinogens and chemicals that smoke contains. Vapor is clean and just uses the ingredients in whatever oils or herbs you use. No harmful substances get added to the mixture.
If you turn your unit up too high or use low-quality ingredients, then you might still end up burning your ingredients. However, for most people, this isn’t likely to happen.
We always recommend that people start with a lower temperature. Turn the heat off if you find that your ingredients aren’t vaporizing and all you are getting is hot air. Find out what works the best for you and then stick to it. However, you should always start out with a lower temperature control so that you don’t end up using your ingredients up or burning them up too fast.
This vaporizer is very durable. We know some people who have working Volcano’s that have had them for years when they first came out. They have been designed to last for a very long time, which the generous warranty shows. All of the parts are very sturdy, and there isn’t much risk that you will damage the unit simply by just bumping or dropping it.
You need to be careful that you don’t leave it on too long. It hasn’t been designed to be powered on overnight or left heating for a long time. That can wear the system down and result in it needing to be replaced or repaired prematurely. You will be just fine if you only follow the directions The vaporizers have been designed very well.
More than simply a high-quality vaporizer, the Volcano is also an excellent way of getting your fix without having to sacrifice your health. You vape whatever you put into your ingredient chamber – nothing less and nothing more. You get clear and crisp flavor each and every time, and you won’t need to worry about any other chemicals getting into the vapor.
Part of that is because the Volcano heats up everything just right so that there is even heating of the ingredients that you are vaping. It is also because a water filter can be used for an added benefit.
A water filter does not come with the unit. However, you can purchase one inexpensively. It adds water to the vapor which helps things easier on your throat. When you suck in heated dry air, this can be rough on your throat.
Some people will be affected more than others will. If you do experience any chronic discomfort when using your Volcano Desktop Vaporizer, you need to ensure that you buy a water filter to use with the unit. That will make it a lot easier to vape, and your vapor will be even purer than it was before.
If you are looking for the best quality and durable product. You really need to get this vaporizer. There isn’t any vaporizer we have found that we like more than this one. Although the price might be on the high side, we believe it is worth the extra cost.
You can get the same general benefit as we mentioned in our Vapir Rise review, which is more cost effective. However, the decision is up to you. We have tried just about all of the vaporizers we could find, and nothing comes close to the Volcano.
