The Volcano Classic from German manufacturer Storz & Bickel has been the most popular forced-air desktop vaporizer on the market since its release over a decade ago. Easily the most recognizable vaporizer in its class, the Volcano Classic features an iconic volcano-shaped design and an advanced convection heating system. This desktop unit produces pure, potent, and clean-tasting draws that are free of the harmful irritants found in smoke. Vapor from the Volcano Classic is made up of 95% of the active ingredients found in herb while smoke consists of 88% non-cannabinoids. An easy-to-use rotary dial lets you toggle the temperature range from 1 to 9, allowing you to customize each vaping session to your liking. The Volcano Classic temperature range spans from 266F to 446F, providing a variety of vapor profiles.
With the Easy Valve balloon-bag system, the Storz & Bickel Volcano lets you attach a balloon bag to the vaporizer, fill it up with vapor, and detach with ease. A mouthpiece on the vapor bag makes for easy consumption. Users walk around with the bag completely untethered from the Volcano Classic. Balloons store vapor for up to 8 hours. With long-lasting quality, excellent vapor production, and an easy-to-use design, the Volcano Classic has remained one of the most popular vaporizers for decades.

EASY VALVE BALLOON BAG SYSTEM
The Volcano Classic Vaporizer comes with the Easy Valve balloon bag starter set, an easy-to-use alternative to the Solid Valve. The Easy Valve is characterized by easy handling and minimal maintenance. Attaching a new balloon to the Volcano Classic is simple. The Easy Valve Balloon bag features a valve on the bottom of the bag for easy attachment. This hassle-free set up benefits those looking for a low maintenance option. The Easy Valve set for the Volcano Classic vaporizer allows for rapid balloon bag replacement. The starter set contains 5 Easy Valve balloons and a filling chamber. The Easy Valve filling chamber can be cleaned and re-used for a long time, while the balloon bags are replaced after 50 to 100 uses.
MEDICAL GRADE VAPORIZER
After 12 years of extensive research and development, the Volcano Classic received medical grade certification in 2009. Utilizing convection heating, the Volcano pushes hot air into the heating chamber to extract the active ingredients found in dry herb without burning the material. The resulting vapor is far cleaner than smoke, which has made the Volcano Classic a popular option for medical and recreational users alike. Precision temperature control enables users to choose the perfect temperature for their preferred strain of dry herb. The vapor path of the Volcano Classic is designed to keep hits unadulterated and comfortable. The Easy Valve balloon bag allows vapor to cool before the user takes a hit, making for smoother inhalation. Thanks to its exemplary vapor production, this unit is often the subject of studies comparing smoke with vapor.
PRECISION TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Unlike its digital counterpart, the Volcano Classic features a traditional rotary dial for controlling temperature with precision. This allows users to simply twist the dial to their preferred temperature, making for quick operation. Users can pinpoint the ideal temperature for their favorite vapor profiles, whether they enjoy smoother, more flavorful hits or thick and robust draws. The dial has 9 settings in clockwise order:
After choosing your temperature, a red “HEAT” switch turns the unit on, lighting up when you flick it to let you know the heating element is reaching your chosen temperature. A green “AIR” switch activates the forced-air system that pushes hot air into the heater to fill the Easy Valve balloon bag with vapor. A yellow “control” light situated between the two switches lights up to notify you when the unit is heating, and turns off when vaporization temperature has been reached. Once you’ve turned the Volcano Classic vaporizer on, it takes just 3 minutes to heat up before you can begin filling the Easy Valve bag.
Durable, dependable, and easy-to-use, Volcano Classic boasts one of the best build qualities in the vaping industry. The sleek yet solid exterior is constructed of stainless steel, while any plastic components are made of heat resistant material. While some vaporizers feature loose, cheaply made buttons, the Volcano Classic switches and rotary dial are solidly built-in. The 100 watt convection heater features high-grade metal that does not rub off on the flavor and aroma of vapor or cause combustion. While some desktop vaporizers may tip over, the Classic features a sturdy base that keeps it upright. A continuous work in progress, Storz & Bickel has spent over a decade perfecting the Volcano Classic, and it shows in its legendary vapor quality.

Volcano Classic Vaporizer Ratings & Reviews
The Volcano Lives up to the Expectation
First ever Vaporizer I even vaporized out of when I was 16 yrs old so to me these other Vapes such as the oil,wax and herb pens are good for on the go but if you want a nice smoking session the Volcano is the way to go. You can make your bag big if you have more than 2,3 people or for example when I’m alone fill one bag up full and IT WILL LAST YOU about the whole day! NO THE SMOKE DOES NOT GET STALE unless it’s been in the bag for more than 8 hrs according to the makers of the Volcano. I would recommend the SOLID Valves because the easy valves are basically self explained. They are called easy valves because the are SO SIMPLE to attach to the bag but I like the SOLID because of the mouth piece and design attachment to the bag releases almost no VAPOR! Having to be pressed down with your lips tends to not leak the Vapor out like the easy valve does with the mouth piece design. Hands down the Volcano in general is THE BEST AT HOME VAPORIZER IN THE WORLD. I’ve tried many others before and the only one that comes… View more close would be the Silver Surfer, but I am not a fan of the tubes. If I want to relax myself and watch TV or something the last thing I want to be doing when I’m trying to enjoy myself is to get the bud to cook but not burn such as the Silver Surfer is designed.
Germany won this war as this vaporizer is of top quality and works as designed. Made in Germany. I have purchased cheaper ones only to throw them away. Don’t wast your time on cheap junk as you will end up buying this one anyway.
Volcano ReviewYou get what you paid for, and this website is the best place to get it! The volcano will vaporize all of your herbs and contain the vapor in that wonderful bag for you to enjoy. I got the classic version because I had heard that the digital upgrade isn’t necessary and I have to agree – the classic works perfect. Throw that on 7 and leave it there for most herbs. You can also do some google searches based on the species of herb you are going to vaporize for suggestions on numbers.The volcano grinder is also one of the best grinders i’ve ever used. It doesn’t have a screen catch, but you won’t need it… This little plastic grinder pulverizes whatever you put in it (which is important, the more ground up you get stuff for the volcano, the better)If you are trying to decide easy vs solid valve, I personally purchased the easy valve and wish I had gotten the solid one (i’ll be purchasing solid eventually). Keep in mind that with very regular use (several times a day), I have to change the bags about every 2 weeks. Easy valve bags are harder to change out yourself, but it is possible if… View more you want the convenience of the easy valve and also want to save a little money between bag cycles, the valve itself lasts a while.Quit looking at the other vaporizers, this one is the one you want. and vapornation is the cheapest and best deal you can find!By Benjamin
Volcano Vape gets an A++Best Vape Period. Simple to use. I keep my dial on 6 and it works flawlessly and gives me about 3 bags of vapor out of a bowl of herbs. You get what you pay for and what you pay for here is Quality, pure and simple.By Jackknife
Worth every cent.
Very easy to take the mouth piece apart for cleaning (solid valve). This is by far the best vaporizer I have ever used, I had been thinking about buying one for years and now that I got one I wish I would have done it sooner. The customer service is outstanding.By Dilweed
Q: Are you selling the newest models?
A: Phil, Yes! we do have the latest Volcano Classic and Digital models
Q: How do you change the screens on the Volcano Classic Vaporizer?
A: Hi Leonard, If you’re using the Easy Valve, simply unscrew the valve, take out the stainless steel insert, and pop the screen out from it. When using the Solid Valve, the screen is located in the filling chamber insert. Disassemble the valve, remembering where all the parts go. When you unscrew the bottom of the insert, the components will come apart. Poke the lower screen out of the filling chamber and remove the bottom ring with tweezers.
Q: How often should the bags be changed?
A: It really depends on frequency of use. However, you can typically get about 150 uses out of the bag before you start to see yellowing. That’s a sign that it’s time to change it.
Q: Can this product be used on 220-230V countries?
A: Yes, the Volcano can be used on 220-230V.
Q: Once the vapor is in the bag, how long can you keep it in there and still inhale it without the vapor going stale?
A: Storz & Bickel states that their bags can hold the vapor for up to 8 hours once it has been filled.
