The Volcano Classic Vaporizer from Storz & Bickel, is a multi-purpose desktop vaporizer that has the power to vape oils, herbs, and other mixes. The vaporizer via its advanced precision technology removes toxins and other harmful chemicals from your vape. Through cutting edge technology the Volcano removes as much as 79.8% of all toxins which makes the vapors that enter your lungs that bit more nutritious and healthy. The technology which the Volcano Classic Vaporizer utilizes is a balloon that inflates the valve and thus clears up your herbs and gets them ready for use. The balloon has an 8-hour storage unit inside of it. The completely unique and unusual style of the vaporizer makes it one of the must-have vaporizers.
The easy valve system makes filling the balloons on the Volcano Classic vaporizer easy. Simply attach the valve to the unit, turn the forced air on and the balloon will fill. Detach to close the valve and store the vapor. Vapors stored in this way will remain fresh for up to 8 hours. The balloon simple is simple, portable and easy to share. For users who prefer a solid valve, those are also available.
The entire system benefits from solid German engineering. Other than replacing bags after every 50 – 100 uses, the remaining parts of the system will continue to work for years and decades.
The heating unit is 100W, making it impossible to burn or scorch herb. The lack of smoke makes this unit popular among medical users. In fact, after 12 years of research, the Volcano Classic has been certified as a medical-grade vaporizing device. The heating chamber for herb easily handles both small and full, compact loads, making it appropriate for both low concentration and high concentration vapors.
The Easy Valve is characterized by convenient handling and minimalistic maintenance work. The Easy Valve comes with a ready-made balloon unit and also a mouthpiece. Once the old valve is no longer of use you can replace it with a new one. In the starter set, you’ll be given 5 balloons and a filling chamber.
The Solid Valve is the more standard version that has been used thus far. With the Solid Valve, you can choose your own unique balloon size. This particular version is slightly trickier to use than Easy Valve, but it does offer far better value.
The balloon should be replaced with a new one, roughly every 50-100 fillings. With each Volcano set, a roll is included which should be sufficient for at least 5-6 balloons. You can use other bags if need be such as the Reynolds oven bag, but we would recommend sticking with volcano bags. You should not use cling film or plastic bags as these can damage your machine.
The Volcano Classic was the first of its kind on the market and continues to be a favourite among users. The unit comes with “easy valve” technology or solid valves and a pure, clean, smoke-free vapor is delivered with the Volcano’s balloon delivery system. The balloon allows users to move around or share the vapour with ease. The balloons come in two sizes – standard and XL, which can be used between 50 to 100 times before needing to be replaced. The easy valve system allows for low resistance, making drawing vapor very comfortable. It is also easy, simply attach and turn the air on to fill, then detach to close the valve. The liquid pad makes the Volcano usable with not only herb but liquids and waxes.
The Volcano Classic Vaporization System is made of high-quality, food-safe materials:
Users typically recommend purchasing the analog rather than digital model of this vaporizer for the reduced price. Users also enjoy the size and portability of the vapor bag, which is large enough for sharing or for storing vapor for use over a longer period. Some users were concerned that the “easy valve” that comes with the kit leaks some vapor and prefer the solid valve, which can be purchased separately. User reviews of the Volcano Classic are consistently high, even for reviews from users who have used the unit long term (up to 10 years in some cases). This is so even after nearly 20 years on the market. Users are happy with the sturdy construction of the unit and the ease of cleaning it. They also say that the forced air conduction of this unit provides a clean, flavourful vapor every time.
Users who prefer to have more control or ability to fine-tune their temperatures appreciate the analogue temperature dial. They also appreciate that the combination of a balloon delivery system and the forced air convection of the herb does not leave a heavy smell in the room where the vaporizer is used. Medical users who are not smokers have commented that they appreciate the smoke-free vapor and the fact that the balloon allows the vapors to cool before they are drawn.
