My last article about my Firefly 2 not turning on turned out to be such a hit I decided to share another obstacle I tackled with my FF2. Before I continue writing this piece I want to make it clear that I’m not shitting on the Firefly 2, it’s currently one of my favorite vapes and I use mine everyday. With such heavy daily use I’ve started to encounter some problems and I suspect I’m not the only one…
At first my Firefly 2 was hitting 10/10 best tasting vapor I’ve ever encountered from an on-demand vape. After a week or so of heavy daily use it started encountering tremendous draw resistance. It got so bad one night that my freshly packed bowl actually combusted!
Here’s the troubling part… I would clean my FF2 after every couple uses (or so I thought). Cleaning would consist of me taking a disposable alcohol wipe and wiping down the bowl and mouthpiece area. Be careful not to get any alcohol on the rubber parts of the lid. Getting alcohol on the rubber will ruin it and cost you close to $40 to replace.
After the first time my FF2 got clogged and combusted I removed the mouthpiece and cleared out the fine weed particles that got sucked through the bowl. This slightly improved the draw resistance, but it didn’t fix the problem.
What To Do If Your Firefly 2 Won’t Hit
Troy suggested firing up the bowl without any bud inside the bowl to see how many little dots appeared. His suggestion turned out to be correct, less than half the dots appeared visible when the bowl was bright orange/red. I dunked a q-tip in some rubbing alcohol and started going to town on this bowl. After about a dozen q-tips about 90% of the dots were visible again! Immediately packed a bowl and my FF2 was back to its former glory hitting like a champ!!
