I hope that is a Chinese hand or the Firefly is kind of biggish...
Looks smartphone size, guess I was wrong about my estimation earlier. The circle does look about the same size as a Cera core.
Old smartphone sized?
Like the size of a samsung galaxy note 2! lol
Alright, my sense is skewed because I've got an HTC One with a 4.7 inch screen (body size 13.72cm x 6.82cm). It's no Galaxy Note, but iPhone screens do always look small to me when I hold them, hehe. I think that, on average, smartphones are getting a little bigger rather than smaller.
I am interested in this one but I think I might have to see some user reviews before I go and spend $260+ on it
I have been in love with my Pax since day one, so hopefully this one will give the pax a run for their money, and I would love to have one.
Anyone pre-order one yet?
I was thinking the EXACT thing. I am def going to follow this closer as the journey is MY Favorite pipe as well.
A journey style vape ...
It's interesting that there's been no news on this (unless I'm checking the wrong thread). yes, the Grasshopper is smaller, but this certainly seems pocket-sized and very interesting. Maybe it's just the absurd price.
I think both price and lack of information are involved.
Yes, had my eye on this too but no video or nothing.
The website has a bunch of information
A bunch of other stuff: http://www.thefirefly.com/firefly-portable-vaporizer.html
And there is a kinda "how-to" video: http://www.thefirefly.com/skin/frontend/default/firefly/images/how-to.webm
I don't purchase anything until someone I trust uses it though.
Forget about the Lotus, Hammer, T1, Evolution, Cera....
Oh ye of little faith. I think the design is simple enough to work. As the Vape Critic said, "My initial impressions are that this thing is like a sexy, beefed-up, technology-enhanced Launch Box." Trusting as I am (I own a first run Cera as well as a first run Pax and am quite happy with both) I went ahead and put in a pre order. I'll let you all know what I find out. But I'm betting it will be one sweet unit. I think the comparison to the MFLB is about the on-off per toke / increase in heat while you draw rather than a direct comparing of heating types... If you know what I mean.
A beefed-up Cera more likely... It is simple enough to work as advertised though as you said. I hope you get it fast and tell us what you think!
Considering that the mfg says that it is convection based and the LB is conduction based, the above statement is kind of odd, eh?
The cera was kind of a little too beefy to begin with. I like the idea behind this vape but the price is really pushing it. Eagerly awaiting the reviews.
Watching with interest. I'd like something that rivals the pax in ease and portability, but the only real upgrade I want out of a pax competitor would be convection > conduction for me personally.
This should be bigger and less stealthy than the Pax with the lights and the hot ring on the top... I think of it as an electronic Lotus. You go to a private place, you take a couple of potent, thick draws and you are good to go in less than a couple of minutes. Should be interesting, especially if they drop the price a little....
The price point I'm fine with IF it functions as I expect. The pax comment I meant more like simple to use and stealthy as in true pocket sized. I love my thermovape cera, but when I'm with friends they prefer the pax because it is easy to use without any practice. That means conduction vapor which I find much harsher, wasteful, and less effective than convection. Hopefully this functions as easily as the pax.
Oddly enough, it's still not quite as good as the Volcano
Good luck! I want videos!
Who thought any portable was going to match the volcano? I'm so confused by that lol.
But in a good way, yeah?
That made me chuckle as well.
I think you didnt get the memo or stepped outside to vaporize when it was being passed around. The running joke is almost all the new companies compare their unit to a volcano. Even the portable ones. If they ever do you should watch out. As these come off as bold and ignorant to many here.
There's an audio interview on the Boing Boing blog with the Firefly guys. But more to the point, I saw this bit....
"(The creators of the Firefly have a special offer for Happy Mutant listeners. Use the code BOING13 to get 10% off your order. Expires 12/31/2013)"
am a happy mutant still looking for the perfect portable vape !!
despite the 10% promotion ,this thing is still a bit pricey ….especially considering what we know about it ,which is close to zero.
