Digital Volcano Vaporizer Review

Storz & Bickel’s digital Volcano vaporizer, known affectionately as “the Digit,” is one of the most expensive dry herb vaporizers on the market. But is it worth the money? In this review, we take a closer look at the Volcano Digit dry herb convection vaporizer and share exactly what we think.

Volcano Digital Precision

Introduced in 2007, the Digit is the second offering in Storz & Bickel’s premium line of Volcano vaporizers. As the company’s “new and improved” product one would expect it to be better in some measurable way compared to the original. But is it really?

In a word, yes. The main difference is the addition of a digital temperature control system allowing one to target the desired vaping temperature with the press of a button. The Volcano Classic uses a manual knob to dial in an estimated vaping temperature. While the dial-in method of the Classic isn’t as precise, it doesn’t take long to learn your favorite settings.

But having precise control over vaping temps by way of the digital control panel is a significant improvement. The LED panel reads out the current temp and target temp making precision vaping all the easier. There’s also a 30-minute auto-shutoff switch for safety and protection. In our opinion, the uptick in price for the Volcano Digit vaporizer is justified.

Volcano Digit Vaporizer – New and Improved Cloud King

But the real justification for the Volcano Digit’s high cost remains the quality of its vapor. It is nothing short of spectacular – clean, full-bodied, delicious and lasting. This is a gourmet endeavor that can take up to fifteen minutes to create and consume a single balloon.

And vape-filled balloons can be saved for up for later use. Storz & Bickel liken a Volcano vapor bag to a fresh pot of coffee – best when consumed within 15 minutes – but users have claimed to store vape-filled bags for 8 hours.

This machine is easy to use and built to last, weighing in at 4 pounds. We sincerely doubt that clumsy friends or dramatic story-telling gesticulations will knock this bad boy off the coffee table.

Classic Volcano Performance from the Volcano Digit Vaporizer

Compared to the Storz & Bickel Volcano, all other balloon vaporizers seem a bit tedious as they fail to incorporate a mouthpiece that doubles as a valve. With the Volcano Digit and Volcano Classic, the mouthpiece IS the valve. So instead of turning a knob to release the vapor you merely press the mouthpiece against the outside of your mouth and the valve automatically opens and flows.

The Volcano Digit delivers the same performance as the Classic…with the digital dial cranked to eleven.

Vaping solo with the Volcano Digit is a pair of aces, but group session vaping is where the Digit deals a full house. Those who haven’t seen it will be blown away and those who already know it will remain duly impressed. Aside from the digital controls, we struggle to write anything new about the Volcano Digit that hasn’t already been said in our review of the Classic. So if you want the full rundown of all the attributes of this amazing line of vapes we recommend you read our Volcano Classic review here.

So What’s the Downside?

In terms of heating time, it’s no speed demon at three to five minutes from stone-cold, depending on load size and taste preference. But once the heat is on, the vapor flows and you’ll easily forgive the wait. Other than that, the Volcano Digit packs an extra 8 ounces over the Classic due to the digital control system. But this is something we can easily live with.

Summary – Volcano Digit Review

All things considered, the Volcano Digit vaporizer is the best vape on the market at the time of this review. But due to its high cost, it’s not practical for everyone. For those on a budget, we suggest a solid desktop like the Extreme QBut for those who can afford it, the digital Volcano is the cloud king par excellence.

If you want to buy this top of the line medical grade vape we suggest you buy it from this dealer where you’ll receive the three-year manufacturer’s warranty as well as an impressive lineup of free add-ons.
