Vocano Hybrid possible health risks due to aluminium abrasion
As we have been informed, there are possible health risks with the Volcano Hybrid due to aluminium abrasion on the herb chamber.
Next to this point, the closure of the herb chamber, where the herb chamber comes into contact with the inner stainless steel part of the chamber lid, is a risk point for abrasion.
Our technician has been able to create small amounts of aluminium abrasion by placing the chamber tightly on the hybrid and closing the chamber several times, which could possibly get into the airflow.
Due to the potential health risks of ingesting large amounts of aluminum, we recommend the following:
Unfortunately, although the problem has been known in the USA for at least 2 weeks, there is no official information from Storz & Bickel in Germany.
In the USA, Storz & Bickel has published a modified user manual stating that the device or herb chamber should be cleaned with a damp cloth before/after each use.
According to a phone call we made to Storz & Bickel today, they are currently investigating the problem.
If there are any news on the subject, we will forward them directly.
Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer
- Balloon and direct inhalation
- Vaporization temperature adjustable down to the degree 40°C-230°C
- App with additional functions
- Faster heat up ~ 40 seconds
- Removable power cord
- Made in Germany
The Volcano family gets a new generation and with the possibility of direct inhalation also a highly anticipated update. The direct inhalation has several advantages like the possibility to use the Volcano silently at night or while watching movies. Since you determine the airflow during direct inhalation yourself, the Volcano Hybrid gives you another possibility to control taste and vapor density in addition to temperature. With the Volcano Hybrid it is also possible to vaporize "freehand", e.g. when gaming.
Of course, the hybrid also has all the features of the Volcano Digit such as the unsurpassed balloon inhalation and the real-time display of the target and actual temperature. The well proven Volcano double helix heating element can also be found in the Volcano hybrid, but the performance has been increased so that the hybrid is ready in only about 40 seconds. With the wear-free and easy-to-clean touch keys, sticky keys are now a thing of the past.
The newly developed Mighty Hybrid App not only allows you to control and adjust the temperature and pump from your smartphone. Finally there is a possibility to use an adjustable shut-off timer to save energy if you forget to deactivate the heating after the session. With configurable workflows you can create your own temperature sequences so you don't have to change the temperature manually during a session.
For the first time with a Storz & Bickel vaporizer, firmware updates will also be possible.
