Note: While the Volcano Vaporizer itself is not for sale through Amazon, some of its accessories and replacement parts are. We found replacement balloons, screens, valves, and more at the time of writing. We also strangely noticed that one Amazon seller had listed the Plenty Vaporizer, Storz & Bickel’s handheld, for sale at the time we wrote this. Whether or not that listing will still be there by the time some of you read this is questionable given Amazon’s current stance on selling these types of vaporizers.
Who Makes The Volcano?
As we noted above, the Volcano is made by none other than Storz & Bickel. But this answer leaves the question, who is Storz & Bickel and what do they do? Storz & Bickel, which was founded in 2002, is a vaporizer manufacturer based in Germany. They are the first vape manufacturer in the world to meet the requirements for manufacturing medical devices. They’re also the first company in the world to have released a medical vaporizer onto the market, the Volcano Medic. For more on the company, read this. In it, we discuss the company’s background in great depth, starting with their humble origins that trace all the way back to the mid-1990s.
What Is The Volcano Vaporizer?
The Volcano is not a single vaporizer, but actually two vaporizers: the Classic and the Digit. The latter of which is our preferred home vaporizer. The Classic, the one that came out first, is the balloon vape that helped jump start the vaping revolution at a time when many were questioning the viability of vaporizers as alternatives to smoking. Years after it came out, its maker came out with an updated version, a better version: the Digit. This is the digital version that, instead of a simple dial that turn to adjust the vaping temp, employs a large display and buttons used to change the temperature. Instead of the guesswork that the Classic entails, it offers the accuracy of a digital temperature control system. But this doesn’t really explain what a Volcano Vaporizer is so to quote ourselves, a Volcano “is a German-made desktop vaporizer that uses a balloon as its vapor delivery medium.” By using convection, it creates vapor which is pushed into a balloon by an internal fan. Once in the balloon, the vapor is sealed away behind a valve built directly into its mouthpiece. When the mouthpiece is pushed against the mouth, the valve is opened, allowing the vapor to flow freely to the user. With extremely low draw resistance, incredibly potent vapor, and what is the most convenient method of delivering vapor that we’ve come across, it’s easy to see why it’s one of our highest rated vaporizers of all time.

Where Can I Buy It For Cheap?
While the Volcano can be purchased from any number of retailers, we strongly suggest you buy yours from an authorized retailer such as this store here. That way, you can rest assured that yours will not only be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, but also an authentic Volcano and not some cheap knockoff of inferior quality.
