Well I picked up the phantom vaporizer from the local headshop. Phantom Digital Vaporizer - Aromatherapy Air Freshener on Sale @ 123Vaporizers.com All in all i was really just blown away how this volcano knockoff could be 400 dollars cheaper, and it comes with the same bowl and valve pieces, so i said fuck it and bought it.(if i want to pick up a volcano later i only need to buy the base) After testing it it works, the bag fills up into clouds, the 2 issues about this is that the bags are not durable I went through all 5 bags in 3 days,(picking up some volcano bags 2day) . and the digital thermometer is a joke(I kinda assumed it was being a 250 dollar vape) it basically just runs on a timer and 200-400 is just its "heat settings". going to the headshop to buy some volcano bags, which should make this vape worth the money. final words: it obviously isnt a volcano and i know this, but for 250 dollars its a vape thats up and running in 5 minutes and you can throw a vape filled bag around your house and have a pretty volcano like experience.
