Above is a step by step tutorial on how to clean your Firefly vaporizer. The total run time is only 4 minutes. This is a video for the OG Firefly and not the new Firefly 2 + but still works.
UPDATE: The new Firefly 2+ is out now and I really like it. The cleaning process for the new version is basically the same. All you really need is some ISO and some paper towels. Just be sure to keep the vape upside down when you are cleaning out the bowl and only use a little bit of ISO on the paper towel. Be sure to check the screen on the mouthpiece as well. That tends to get dirty quickly and will drastically reduce draw resistance.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Firefly Multi-Sided Brush
Hey guys Buzz here with vaporizerwizard.com. Today we’ll be going over how to clean your Firefly portable vaporizer. Here are the things you’re going to need. First, you’ll need the multi-sided brush that is included with the Firefly. Some q-tips, a shot glass of Isopropyl Alcohol, I’m using 91%, and lastly, some paper towels.
Ok so the cleaning on the Firefly is definitely one of the easiest of all the portables I’ve tested. To start we’ll go ahead and remove the lid by lifting up in the grooves. We then have access to the bowl, vapor path, and mouthpiece. The first thing I like to do is brush out the bowl and the window on the lid. This makes it easier later when you are using the q-tips. Try not to brush down too hard or you can mess up the screen. This doesn’t have to be perfect, we’ll hit it better with the alcohol and q-tips in a minute. Next we’ll move onto the lid. We’re doing the same thing here, just brushing out all the big pieces. It’s also good to get down into the grooves and help knock out anything that may be stuck.
Now the next thing we’re going to do is clean out the bowl. So go ahead and grab a q-tip, dip it in a little alcohol and dab off any extra. We want to try and use as little as possible to avoid getting any liquid into the unit. Another safety precaution I take is to clean out the bowl upside down. Spin the q-tip while rotating it around in the bowl and this should clean up the majority of the materials left. Repeat this step a couple times until the bowl is clean. I’m not going to remove the screen in this video but if you need to remove the screen, you can use a pick on the sides to bend it up and remove it. The more you mess with the screen, the faster it will need to be replaced. I haven’t touched mine other than brushing out the bowl and it’s still going strong after four months of use. Just make sure to brush out the bowl after your sessions. The screen is designed bigger than the bowl so every time it gets removed, the edges will start to bend up and will eventually need to be replaced.
From here we can move onto the lid and the window. Repeat the same step as before with the q-tip. You can use a little extra here if you want. Start with the window and get the grooves because this is where the vapor travels through.
Next, you can grab a paper towel and fold it up a couple of times, dab it in some alcohol and wipe down the stainless steel on the bottom of the unit. Everything comes off super easy and use the other side of the paper towel to dry it off. Repeat the same process for the window and the lid.
Now we can clean out the mouthpiece and air path. Now the included multi-sided brush is the best tool I’ve found to do this. It’s long enough to reach into the vapor path and wide enough on the other side to clean out the mouthpiece. Once you are done here, you can just wipe everything down again to make it shine and re-attach the lid.
That’s it. The Firefly is very simple to clean. I brush out the window and the bowl after every session so I only have to do a thorough cleaning after about 25 sessions.
