Easy Valve or Solid Valve - The Choice is Yours
The Easy Valve
The consumer's needs and preferences were taken into consideration when developing the Easy Valve. The Easy Valve is, unsurprisingly, characterized by very easy handling and minimal maintenance. Attaching a new balloon to the valve is no longer required, as the Easy Valve comes as a ready to use valve balloon unit including mouthpiece. Once the Easy Valve can no longer be used, you simply replace the old with a new one. The starter set is delivered with 5 Easy Valve balloons and the appropriate filling chamber. The Easy Valve filling chamber is cleaned and re-used.
The Solid Valve
The Solid Valve is the Classic, you can choose your own individual balloon size as the Solid Valve Set comes with a box of 3 meters of balloon material. Using the Solid Valve, the replacement of the balloon is kind of tricky and needs some experience, however the Solid Valve provides a less expensive long-term option, as the balloon material can be bought for a reasonable price..
The mouthpiece for both easy and solid valve choices are made from high quality, durable plastic.
The Balloon Bag System
The balloon should be replaced after cleaning the valve set in regular intervals (after 50 - 100 balloon fillings). A roll with 3 meters of balloon material is enclosed with each Volcano, which is sufficient to make 5-6 balloons. You may also use other heat-proof oven hoses or oven bags, e.g. Reynolds "large" oven. Do not use any other plastic bags or cling wraps. On the other hand, once an Easy Valve can no longer be used, you simply replace the old with a new one. This is required far less frequently (approx. 1x per year in everyday use) although it may be necessary to replace the filling chamber screens. Each complete set is furnished with 3 upper and 3 lower screens. That will last a long time. No other parts are subject to wear and tear.
Getting The Volcano Classic Going
The Volcano Classic has exceptional vapor quality, and what makes the Volcano Classic so appealing is that is it very easy to use. It heats up in three to five minutes depending on the load size and the taste preference. The orange light will go off and this is when you should snap the filling chamber on top and turn on the fan. Wait until you see vapor, this will take a couple of seconds and then connect the balloon and start vaping. It will the product very dense vapor with excellent flavor.
It will take about a minute to fill a standard size balloon. When the chamber is full, detach the balloon from the filling chamber and attach the mouthpiece. Then you are ready to enjoy the delicious vapor the Volcano Classic has to offer. You can also store it in the bag for another session.
Taste and Density
One of the main reasons the Volcano Vaporizer is so well liked is the consistent high quality vapor you receive from each balloon. Thanks to the large area being heated your dried herbs are very evenly heated making for a more satisfactory hit every time. While it might take slightly longer than smaller vapes to heat up, this desktop vaporizer really makes the wait worth it.
Appearance and Temperature Control
Using the dial on the front makes choosing your temperature very easy. The Volcano Vape comes with two large buttons for heat and air and a smaller orange control light between to indicate when your vaporizer has hit the temperature you selected. Overall the Volcano is very easily maintained, especially with its stainless steel exterior. There's a reason people are happy owners of Volcanoes that are years old!
Pros and Cons to the Volcano Classic Vaporizer
- Unbelievably great tasting vapor
- Effective temperature controls eliminate risks of combustion
- The craftsmanship is entirely unsurpassed in the vape world
- It's a bit pricey

Maintaining the Volcano Classic Vaporizer
Taking care of a Volcano is incredibly easy and straightforward. Depending on how often you're using the vaporizer it could take as little as five minutes. All you need is a small container of isopropyl alcohol and the vaporizer itself comes with some convenient instructions. The screens usually need the most attention. If you brush these out regularly after use they can go for a lot longer between cleans. For deeper cleanings you'll need to soak a lot of the parts in the isopropyl alcohol and change out the bag. Still this vaporizer is far lower maintenance than a lot of others on the market.
