This vaporizer allows you to vape using a balloon. With the easy valve you get two sizes of balloons to choose from: The Standard and the XL. With the solid valve you get to select custom sizes for your balloon.
Solid Valve vs. Easy Valve
Now, the Volcano comes with a choice you have to make about which valve you’ll go with. The solid valve lets you get customizable balloon size, a higher quality chamber and mouthpiece because of higher quality stainless steel and heat resistant plastic. You will have to dedicate some of your time to cleaning up the chamber with the solid valve.
The Easy Valve Balloon is food-safe, heat-proof and odor-free. Inhalation from the easy valve is comfortable, and there is practically no draw resistance. Thanks to the design characteristics of the Filling Chamber for low level condensation, vaporization with the Easy Valve is extremely efficient. With this you will not require cleaning and maintenance is minimal.
Heating & Temperature
The Volcano Classic is a metal cone icon. It has an analog temperature setting with a rotary turn dial temperature adjustment with Level 1 on 266-degree Fahrenheit to Level 9 - 446-degree Fahrenheit which pretty much gives you a very large range for setting the temperature according to your liking.
How to Use
To start vaping from the Volcano Classic, first you need to turn on the unit and wait for it to heat up. It takes an average of 3 minutes to heat up. Then you pour some freshly ground dry herbs into the Filling Chamber and place the Chamber on the Heating Element. Attach the balloon to the Filling Chamber without the mouthpiece and turn on the fan and wait for the balloon to fill up with vapor.
