The Volcano Hybrid vaporizer is the latest innovation from Storz & Bickel. A new dual-inhalation system allows users to enjoy vapor with a classic balloon bag or whip delivery system. Taking the place of the Volcano Digit, the Hybrid features a heat-up time that is 10 times faster, improved airflow, and a newly designed app for total control over your sessions.
HYBRID INHALATION SYSTEM
The newly added hybrid inhalation system brings together Storz & Bickel’s balloon and classic whip-style inhalation. For those who want to enjoy the balloon delivery method, simply fill the balloon with the built-in air pump. Those who prefer whip-style vapor can expect resistance-free, silent draws directly from the Volcano Hybrid’s heating chamber.
Volcano vaporizers have always been known for their elite flavor production, and the new whip-style system manages to improve the flavor experience. By drawing directly from the heating chamber, vapor is delivered at a faster rate.
ICONIC VOLCANO CONVECTION HEATING
Instead of heating your material directly on the hot surface of the chamber, the Volcano Hybrid uses Storz & Bickel’s elite convection heating system. Air is propelled through the vapor path by a 100-watt heater that extracts the essential flavors of your dry herb without combustion. Convection heating is much smoother than conduction as the risk of combustion is essentially zero. Users will appreciate the smooth vapor of the Volcano Hybrid as it is free of unwanted tastes or odors.
PRECISE TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The Volcano Hybrid utilizes simple “+” and “-” buttons to help you dictate your ideal temperature. A bright LED screen lets you know the exact temperature you’ve picked, as well as thetemperature the vaporizer is at as it heats up. Storz & Bickel engineered the Volcano Hybrid with a temperature range between 104 °F and 446 °F—delivering a full flavor spectrum. The Hybrid’s app compatibility allows you to easily manage your vaporizer from your phone.

What's in the Box
This device really is incredible. There's very little to complain about when it comes to the device itself. However, the accessories are a bit of a bummer. The filling chamber has been an issue for me, but Vapor.com replaced it free of charge when it became stuck together after a week of use. So far, the replacement filling chamber hasn't been an issue. But at 63 dollars a piece, I'm not eager to have to replace it often, so I am hoping the defect was specific to just the first one I got. I also am a little disappointed with how quickly the whip tube gets all funked up from resin. S+B says to replace the whip tube every 2 weeks, which is about as quickly as I find them to become inundated with gunk to the point that the base of the tube sticks to the filling chamber. At 25 a pop, these tubes aren't exactly cheap. If you use this device often with the whip function, prepare to spend at least $50 a month maintaining the accessories. The balloons also have a pretty short shelf life. The base / mouth tip get gunked up, and the balloons need replacement pretty often. Those also aren't cheap. So just be prepared to spend a lot to maintain this item properly. The accessories are expensive.
If you are an everyday user that wants to vape consistently, this is a necessary long-term investment. The whip attachment is the way to go, just chillin and takin sips. Pinnacle of cannabis consumption. I feel like a king when I grind up some medicine in the golden grinder(that came for free with purchase), and sink into my couch sippin on my whip. If it's as durable as other volcano models, then should last for many many years. Not much cleaning needed even for everyday use, and easy enough to take care of when the time comes. I have a PAX but all the cleaning stops me from using it a lot, also my PAX chars the bud sometimes, whereas the volcano does no such thing, because it's perfect in every way. Super efficient with herb, will save you money in the long term versus smoking it. Also could be cleaner for your body versus smoking. FFS stop reading reviews and just buy it already.
Love it! Great flavor!
Amazing flavor. Easy to use. Absolutely recommend!!
I had one little problem which was my error and i apologize because You were kind enough to send me free replacement housing when i called to complain.. I could not pry open internal metal herb chamber without a struggle., That happened because material melted on the metal connection part and literally glued the parts together every time it heated up.. I did not see this till i got new housing and decided to clean the metal part. Any way all is perfect now. Thanks again
Overall experience is great. This was my first ever dry herb desktop vaporizer purchase so I decided to go big or go home. Very pleased with the product. A lot of flavor and vaporization with the hybrid technology. Burns herbs evenly and you get multiple uses. All the quick connect features are awesome and quality is second to none.
