What Separates the Firefly 2+ From Its Competitors?

Firefly 2+

When it comes to searching for your perfect vaporizer, there are many options on the market. The decision ultimately comes down to what you're looking for out of a vaping device and personal preferences. In this review, let's take a look at how the Firefly 2+ stacks up against its competitors. 

What Comes in the Firefly 2+ Box?

The Firefly 2+ is made by Firefly Vapor. It originally launched in May of 2019 following Firefly 2 and the original Firefly. This device was designed to be an improvement on the original Firefly 2. 

When you order the Firefly2+ vaporizer, you can expect to receive:

  • Firefly 2+ vaporizer
  • 1 rechargeable battery
  • Convenient charging dock
  • 1 x concentrate pad
  • 3 Firefly cleaning wipes

After you've loaded your preferred product simply follow these 3 steps:

  1. Place your fingertips on the touch sensors.
  2. Wait only about 3 seconds for the LED to turn solid green (indicating the device has reached the set temperature).
  3. Enjoy your experience!

What is the Difference Between the Firefly 2+ and the Firefly 2?

There are noticeable differences between the Firefly 2+ and its predecessor. Compared to the Firefly 2, the latest version is 55% lighter and 22% smaller. One of the big complaints of the Firefly 2 is its draw resistance, which has been addressed with the newer model in that airflow is increased by 33%. This most recent model also offers quicker heat up times and longer battery life. There is a general consensus among the vaping community that the Firefly 2+ surpasses the Firefly 2 in almost every way.

How Does the Firefly 2+ Stack Up to Its Competitors?

Size and Portability

This sleek and slender vaporizer is designed for ultimate portability. Although compared to its competitors it may not be the smallest in size, but it is one of the lightest. You can slide it comfortably in your pocket without feeling weighed down. Although the Firefly 2+ can be partially concealed in your palm, it is likely that people around you will be to see you take a hit. Which is not a big deal with its modern, sophisticated design. 

The Firefly 2+ is comparable to the Davinci and Pax 3 in terms of size and portability but has a leg-up on the Mighty. The Mighty is larger and bulkier in size than the other three and not ideal as a discrete vaping device.

Heat-Up Time

Compared to other vaporizers on the market, the Firefly 2+ provides one of, if not the quickest heat-up times you can buy.  The method of heating is different from that of its competitors. The Firefly 2+ uses dynamic convection heating. This means that it doesn't reach maximum temperature instantly but rather increases temperature as you draw. This is advantageous because it allows you to get all of the compounds out of the herbs. Conduction vaporizers quite often boil off the important extracts before you even take a hit. Most other vaporizers such as Pax 3 and Davinci IQ uses conduction heating and take between 10-15 seconds to heat up. The Firefly 2+ has a distinct advantage in that it only takes about 3 seconds to heat-up. The Mighty is different from most vaporizers in that it utilizes a hybrid heating method of both conduction and convection. 

Exceptional Vapor Path

The uniquely designed vapor path of the Firefly 2+ produces an exceptional flavor from the very first hit. This can be partially attributed to the borosilicate glass bowl. However, the fact that the mouthpiece is constructed out of plastic feels a little cheap and is not one of the most desirable aspects of the design. 

The Ability to Adjust Temperature

The Firefly2 + offers the ability to adjust temperatures between 200 and 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it the perfect device for both flower vaping and concentrate use.  The Pax 3 has a slightly narrower range of 360 - 420 degrees. However, the big difference is in the ability to control and adjust device temperatures. Firefly 2+ is at a disadvantage in this category because it has limited ability for temperature control without the accompanying app. The app is only available on Google Play at the moment because of the vaping ban Apple has placed on its App Store. Pax 3 offers increased flexibility to adjust device temperatures even without its accompanying app. The Mighty falls short in this category compared to the Firefly 2+. It has a low maximum temperature which makes it less than ideal for vaping concentrates. The Davinci IQ also edges out the Firefly 2+ with its extreme versatility in terms of temperature adjustments and settings. 

Loading Capabilities

The Firefly 2+, like most portable vaporizers including the Pax 3 and the Mighty is easy to load. However, the Firefly 2+ sets itself apart in the fact that you do not have to load a full bowl for a great experience. Even though a full-bowl is still recommended, it isn't necessary.
