In the world of portable dry herb vaporizers, it’s good to have your facts before making the jump to to buy a vaporizer. Both the DaVinci Portable Vaporizer and the Firefly vaporizer are both in the same high end portable dry herb portable vaporizer market, but which one is better? Let’s dive in to figure out which is better: the Firefly or the DaVinci Vaporizer.

Silver Firefly Vaporizer ChamberDesign

The Firefly Vape and the DaVinci Vaporizer features quite distinctly different shapes and designs. The firefly looks a lot like a cell phone and is top loading with the same idea as where a pipe bowl is located. It is a bit heavier, making it definitely not good for a weaker patient. The piece can fit in a pocket but it won’t go incognito, it’s best carried in a backpack or purse. Grab the shell in a white, black or candy red shell. On the other hand, the DaVinci portable vaporizer isn’t as heavy but is a bit more bulky. It looks more like a walkie talkie than a vaporizer but definitely won’t fit into a pocket, it’s also a vape that would be better carried in a bag. The Davinci Portable is a vape that is built for an adventurer, it’s been drop tested up to 10’ and survived. The DaVinci vape is one of the most durable portable vapes that we’ve seen. The ground dry herbs go into a top loading chamber that snaps closed directly under the straw sized mouthpiece. DaVinci’s portable vape comes in a grey, green and black outer matte finished shell.


DaVinci Portable Vape; both of these vaporizers are a little bit too bulky to fit into a pocket comfortably. The tie breaker was the drop resistant frame of the DaVinci, its bulk is put to good use with a built in storage chamber and drop resistant technology. The weight was also a factor.

The vape style also differs greatly at the first glance between both of these portable dry herb vapes. Firefly is a top loader so the lid slides off horizontally and magnetically attaches to the unit to ensure that no dry herb fly out. This means that you can pack the bowl and throw the piece in your bag without worrying about anything. Set the temperature between 100°F and 400°F and watch this advanced vape technology heat the chamber in only 10 seconds that is seriously record time. Vaping with the DaVinci vape is a little different, the mouthpiece snaps off using a button to reveal a screw in chamber. There is also a hidden stash box and a brush tool hidden in the compartment. Precision temperature technology allows a DaVinci vape user to set the temperature down to the degree up to 430°F, truly amazing.


DaVinci Portable Vape; the stash compartment and the precision temperature control are the best winning factors of the DaVinci.


Vapor Quality

When it comes to vapor quality, the Firefly dry herb vaporizer produces a delicious level of quality. The vapor is strong, delicious and stands up with the best portable dry herb vapes on the market. It also turns into a wax vape pen when you add a concentrate pad; that’s an awesome perk to this vape. DaVinci portable vape vapor quality is also quite flavorful, though this vape doesn’t deliver big clouds but it can be set to temperatures so that it bakes every terpene. It won’t burn herbs and it bakes dry herbs completely evenly.


Tie; both vaporizers deliver amazing quality vapors. Neither of them burns the dry herbs and both of them vape convection style, it’s a tie.
