    Just wanted to ask, if there were any fake volcanos going around, I saw a used volcano classic on craiglist for 225 which seems like a pretty good price so

    Yes there are but they are usually a fairly obvious knockoff. :2c:

    All I've seen is the Phantom, which looks like a Volcano but looks nothing like a Volcano.

    There are also flat out clones on wholesale China websites, that look almost exactly like the real thing.
    I think somebody has some videos or a blog about the differences.
    The great thing is that, to the best of my knowledge, it's only the Digit model that has been cloned.
    So if you're looking at a used Classic it's probably real.

    so the china clones evolved from the early ones like the Dragonvap DVP 500 :D

    performance wise - nope, imo there would be more difference between EasyValve and SolidValve (Easy valve winning with a bit more surface area, less heatsink and simpler handling...)

    for the digit:
    -shiny display, buttons instead of knob and a bit better temp regulation

    for the classic:
    -more shiny aluminium surface :cool:, less buttons - more keep it simple stupid ;), a tiny click 'noise' from the bi metall switch every 5min or so (like a very slow metronome :D )

    nutpicking would be to say classic seems to be a bit more durable - i've seen a cano with ripped out busted airpump used as a whip vape :clap:

    I went with the digital version, having the display number of the temperature is more reassuring than waiting for the classic to warm up to the right temp.
