Firefly 2+ Cleaning and Maintenance Guide

Keep the Firefly 2+ in showstopper shape with our cleaning and maintenance guide.

The Firefly 2+ vaporizer is incredibly easy to clean. Most of the time, you’ll just wipe the shiny parts with an alcohol wipe. Sometimes a deeper cleaning will free up some of that precious air flow. Whatever you’re faced with, we’ll cover the bases for you.

What you’ll need

The Firefly Cleaning Kit has everything you need, including some alcohol pads, a brush, a toothpick, and a needle. You’ll use fresh alcohol pads every time you clean the Firefly 2+, and the toothpick and needle to clear the screens for deeper cleanings. If you’re going for that mirrored finish, get a soft cloth, too.

Remove the battery

You never know when you’ll accidentally hit the touch sensor buttons and misfire the heater. Take that mishap out of play now by removing the battery. Slide the bottom cover away from the mouthpiece, lift it off, and pull out the battery. Put the bottom cover back on during the cleaning. You don’t have to do this, but it will keep you from touching the battery contacts inside the Firefly.

Clean the deck and bowl

Grab your brush, and take the top lid off the Firefly. Brush off any bits of herbs on the lid, the mirrored deck, and in the bowl. Open an alcohol pad and wipe off the bowl and mirrored deck. When you wipe out the bowl, hold the Firefly with the bottom facing up, so alcohol drips out of the bowl, instead of into it. Use the toothpick to scrape off any stubborn spots in the bowl.

Clean the lid

Use the alcohol pad to wipe the glass surface on the underside of the lid. Be careful with the grey gasket that goes around the outer edge of the lid. You don’t want the alcohol to touch it. It’s inevitable that it touches the very edge of the gasket at some point, and we haven’t lost one yet, but you don’t want to get it wet.

Clean the mouthpiece and screens

If you feel like the air flow has decreased over time, you’re ready to check the screens for clogs. Use the Airflow Needle that came with your cleaning kit, or a regular needle, and poke through any clogged holes in the oven screen.

Wiggle off the mouthpiece and find the little screen inside. If it’s shiny, and only has some bits of herb on it, use the toothpick to poke them off. If the screen is dull or sticky, pry it out with the toothpick, paying attention to the screen orientation. It only goes in one way, indentations first. Wipe off the screen with the alcohol wipe, and let it dry.

Put it all back together

Put the screen back in the mouthpiece, the same way it came out. Push the mouthpiece back into the Firefly. It only goes in one way, with the screen’s access hole facing up. Put the top lid back on, and remove the bottom battery cover. Reinstall battery, and slide the cover back on.

Extra credit

If you brought a soft cloth along, well done. You appreciate the finer things in life. After the deck and lid have dried, use the cloth to buff out any streaks left behind by alcohol, until you’ve got a mirrored polish. Once again, be careful with that gasket on the underside of the lid, or you can rub it off. When it’s back to like-new condition, the Firefly 2+ is a centerpiece vaporizer. Enjoy that perfect reflection, and smile back at yourself. You deserve it!

The Firefly 2+ vaporizer is incredibly easy to clean. Most of the time, you’ll just wipe the shiny parts with an alcohol wipe. Sometimes a deeper cleaning will free up some of that precious air flow. Whatever you’re faced with, we’ll cover the bases for you.

FireFly 2 Plus – Cleaning Guide

Overview

The newest addition to the Firefly collection is the Firefly 2 Plus. It is complete with numerous new features such as cooling technology, improved battery, and a lower cost.

With it being the newest addition, some of our customers have been wondering “how to clean Firefly 2+ vaporizers?”, so on their request, here is the step by step guide on how to clean the FireFly 2 Plus.

FireFly 2 + Cleaning Guide

Step 1

The Firefly 2+ comes with a cleaning kit, which is super convenient. But if you have your preferred cleaning supplies, make sure you keep them on hand.

First, you need to make sure the unit is completely cooled down. Then, remove the battery to protect it during the cleaning process, and make sure you’re safe.

Also, by doing this, you will expose the heating chamber and the cooling path, which is all you need to clean.

Step 2

Now, once the heating chamber is exposed, you have a clear view of what you need to clean. So, once you’ve assessed the situation, you can proceed to getting your cleaning supplies, and cleaning the chamber.

While cleaning the heating chamber, you should make sure you’re not being too harsh on the unit. So if you have some residue that’s hard to clean, just take your time, maybe use a little bit of cleaning solution, and work on it until it’s clean.

Also, once you have cleaned the heating chamber well, make sure you completely dry it off. This will ensure that the battery is safe and that you don’t get water in your product either.

Step 3

The next step is removing the cap/mouthpiece from the bottom of the unit. You can easily do it by gently wiggling it out.

Then, using a thinner cleaning tool, such as a little pick or something along those lines, you can work at the cap, making sure to be gentle, but also making sure you get all the buildup from the mouthpiece/cap.

We recommend going back and using a pipe cleaner after using the pick in order to make sure you get all the smaller particles that might have escaped you the first time.

Once you are satisfied with your amazing cleaning job, you can go ahead and pop the cap back into place. Make sure you feel it click in place!

Pro Tips

The best tip we can give you is to make sure your unit is always clean. You can do this by wiping out the heating chamber and the cap after each use.

Every few sessions (try to keep it between every 2 or 3 sessions), you should definitely go in and do a deep clean, as demonstrated above.

This is just to make sure of 2 main things: that the vapour is always tasty and clean, and that the air paths don’t get clogged with residue and lose product.

Also, we suggest giving the outside a nice wipe down every once in a while, because sometimes residue can get in the strangest places — including the outside!

If you’re not sure how to take the unit apart or are having trouble identifying these different parts, you can always take a look at the guide sent to you with the unit, and get a little more acquainted with your unit. But don’t worry, it’s super simple!
