The Volcano Classic Desktop Vaporizer is arguably the best of its kind. This workhorse unit stands the test of time, as German manufacturers Storz and Bickel build these units to last. There are many users who still have the same Volcano classic they purchased way back in the early 2000’s when the unit first came out. That is an ultimate test to the quality and longevity of this desktop vaporizer.
The vapor quality on this desktop vaporizer rivals any other out there today. Newbies and experienced vape lovers alike will love the taste, robustness of the thick clouds and the feeling you get from the Volcano. This unit uses a balloon bag for hits and plugs into the wall for use. The heating temperature goes from 1-9, and uses a dial that is similar to a guitar amp. It can be tricky to tell exactly what temperature you’re at, because there is no temp indicator on the classic unit.
The Volcano Classic’s temperature ranges from 270 to 440 degrees Fahrenheit. This unit uses three LED lights to indicate heat, control and air. The red button/ light on the left powers up the unit and starts heating. The orange/ yellow button indicates the unit is working when on, and turns off when it’s ready to go. The green button on the right turns on the fan and lets you vape away. The fan can be a bit on the noisy side. The unit takes three full minutes to heat up, which is a bit long, but the wait time is worth it. The vapor quality satisfies even the toughest critics.
Volcano Starter Valve Kits:
When you buy either the Classic or the Digital Volcano, you will choose one of two balloon bag kits. Both the easy valve and the solid valve kits come with sturdy parts that last as long as possible, and won’t smell bad provided you clean the device properly and often.
If you go with the easy valve kit, you get mouthpiece and bag kits that are meant for disposal and are easily replaced when it’s time to do so. You will know when it’s time for that, because there will be a noticeable stench. The easy valve kit is aptly named, because replacing and disposing of the parts are simple. There are fewer components that makeup the easy kit, making it more accessible for and easier to understand for newbies. With it comes to the bowl on both of these Volcanoes which can fit up to 4 grams of dry herbs, its high grade quality and thick plastic like you’ll find with Storz and Bickel’s portable vaporizers – the Mighty and the Crafty.
As far as the solid valve kit, it comes with thicker and heavier balloon bags and mouthpieces than that of the easy kit. You also get more components and moving parts that might need to be assembled. The main parts of the solid valve kit comes were designed to be washed and used multiple times. Of course, you can always replace any part that might need it.
Just like the Digital Volcano, the Volcano Classic offers a solid 3-year warranty.
