Released in 2007, the Volcano Digital is a premier desktop vaporizer from German manufacturers Storz and Bickel. It is hard to imagine a world in which the Volcano is not a substantial presence among vaping devices. With innovative technology that began with their patented and unique detachable balloon and continues today with the computer-controlled temperature system.
When the Original Volcano came out in 2000, the vaporizer community looked nothing like it does today. The Volcano vaporizer is an absolute living legend. The Volcano Digit will not disappoint you if you are looking for best-in-class performance and reliability. There is no such thing as a Volcano “beater.” It is one of the best (if not the best) vaporizers available today. This digital version provides a forced-air desktop vaporizer quality with some futuristic new features, including a slick digital display.
Best in Class
The quality of Storz and Bickel’s devices is unquestionable. They are also responsible for making the new and very popular Mighty and Crafty+. Meanwhile, the Volcano (digital and Classic) remains almost universally acclaimed. Storz and Bickel run such a proper operation that they are prominently involved in creating new technology (like their built-in air filtration) for medical uses worldwide, including at their factory in Tuttlingen, Germany. Tuttlingen is the home of the world’s greatest medical inventions.
Simple and Proven Quality With a Twist
Storz & Bickel provides a 3-year warranty with every Volcano, though many keep theirs for decades. It’s safe to say some of the original Volcano Classics are still functioning perfectly. The Digital takes the same quality and improves upon it; the computerized temperature control can pinpoint temperatures down to every degree. One of the primary design rules for the Volcano is to separate the user from the heating process. None have come closer to eliminating meddlesome combustion than Storz and Bickel. This medical-grade precision results in a possible increase of potency of up to 75% with both the Classic and Digital.
Another improvement for the Digital is adding an auto-off function, making it even more convenient just to set and forget it.
2 Types of Valves
Along the way, Storz and Bickel have improved upon the original technology that rocketed them to the top of the vaporizer world. Principally, they have improved the valves required to attach the balloons to the device. Because of that,
here are the two different styles you can choose from for your Volcano Digital Vaporizer:
This valve features a metal valve production that relies on placing individual balloons directly onto the valve. There is a bit more work with this option, as it requires you to fit the valve with the balloon material (provided initially by S& B, though you can also use generic oven bags once you run out). However, the valve itself will likely last as long as the device. It is a less expensive option that will last a little longer with more upkeep.
With this setup, you will receive a pack of plastic valves attached to a pre-made balloon. All you have to do is connect the valve to the device, and that’s it. A single valve/bag combo should each last for about 150 uses. This option is a little more expensive but far more convenient.
Here is a short video explaining how you operate the Volcano Digital’s valve system.
