    Sucks. Sorry to hear that....does seem to be a fault in the device. My advice is call FF rather than contacting them in mail. They are pretty great when you get a live person on the phone.
    The cradles are fucking weird. They really need to get those external chargers back in stock!

    Are they already out of stock? I ordered one Feb 11 and it was delivered within a week. They should have included this rather than that silly dock.

    Website says out of stock. If they just had them a few weeks ago maybe they'll be back soon.

    The external charger wasn't ready when they first launched the FF2, but I agree, they should consider bundling it now.

    Speaking of the dock, mine stops charging sometimes and I need to re-position it.
    I need the external one, is that a plug in or just another usb?
    I dont have any fast charge usb chargers and charging is very slow.

    Mine just came with the charger itself, no USB cable included. But I had plenty of cables and wall charge bricks sitting around, it works very well.

    It's just the charging box that comes with it, no plug, it works with a regular phone micro usb cord.

    I have a slow cell phone charger only not a rapid charger.
    My charger 5v 1A
    Rapid chargers are 5.1v 2.4A so more that 2x faster.
    The 45 min they say for charging is about 2 hours for me as a result.
    5Watts vs 12Watts

    Are the batteries the same or just the same structure?

    I have a liger with sic and Quartz insert, Hercules from w9tech, pukinbeagle quartz enail and the FF2 beats them all in taste for concentrate usage. Hits really good for a vape.

    I'm wondering why none of the pens use this style of a concentrate steel pad over a heating coil.

    I had trouble vaping the 99% cbd slab from CBDistillery from the FF2.
    Maybe I need a bigger chunk?
    I could taste it, but couldnt see any vapor.

    Well I got my brand new Ferrari red FF1, via eBay ... The seller posted a picture of the inside compartment with the S/N which I confirmed with Firefly support to be authentic. Got it for a cool $100 ... can't wait for it to get here Saturday .... to help pay for it I put my old used Davinci 2 up for sale and already have a bid at $53 .... that's what I call trading up

    I'm in love with my FF2 .....the new FF1 will join its older? brother in the regular rotation .... Good luck with your FF2 ...I've had mine about 6 months now and do not understand the complaints on this product at all ...

    I just got some nice concentrates. I have an option to get a galaxy pen for $40 from a friend or just stick with the fly. Any opinions would be welcome. I kind of like the discreetness of the galaxy and the battery but people seem to love the fly with concentrates.

    The FF2 is AMAZING with concentrates. You won't get better flavor.

    I would do the reset procedure if there is one (pulling battery?) Otherwise the ff2 is a bit broke

    I take my battery out a few times a day when it shows red and not dead and it works again, or make sure app is connected since it doesnt like my phone leaving the area lol

    Just gave it a whirl .....wow .... Totally different experience and luxury from the FF2 ....they're both totally unique and complement each other .... Going to use my. FF1 sparingly on weekends and special occasions as the need arises ....I am so psyched ... It kinda seems like a ferrari with a manual transmission ...awesome ....

    My advice all who love the FF2 and do not own a FF1 is to be on the lookout for a new one on ebay ...make sure to obtain the S/N and run it past Firefly support for Authenticity Verification ....there are a lot of clones out there and you do not want an inferior device ....

    Can you still get all the low temp flavor by careful manipulation of the throttle whilst inhaling?

    Yes ....they call it custom vapor control ....they included a cool little graph with the three types of draws ....
    Basically you get to 400 degrees by drawing for 10 sec with the instant heating button depressed.

    For a smooth draw /low temp (release the instant heating button early .... About 7 sec and continue to draw) ....

    For a rich draw/high temp continue to depress the button after 10 sec whole continuing to draw (careful with this ...don't want to combust)

    Finally there's the concept of vapor surfing where you release the button after 10 sec but then continue to draw whole giving it added short bursts of button depression ....this gives you the medium heat temperatures

    Pretty cool

    Hello everyone. I'm new here.
    I recently purchased a firefly2 jet black edition. I have issues getting a good hit from it. Seems to work ok, but it is a hit and miss on the vapor though. The flavor from the unit is good.
    I have the same battery issues as others have said. Calling FF they told me they have a problem with the app and its battery charge indication feature. When mine stopped working the app showed 0 voltage. The led was solid red. After it was sitting for a while, I was able to still use it for 2 additional sessions about 6 hits per session. So battery is ok I guess.
    I like the cool factor of the unit just wish I was getting better vapor production. Anybody have any suggestions on how to make this my go too instead of my new paper weight?
    Thanks in advance.
