Storz and Bickel have established themselves as one of the leading producers of amazing vapes, and have solidified themselves as a brand associated with medical grade quality, immense durability, and absolutely flawless vapor. They’re infamous for the best, high-quality vaporiser designs in Ireland and the larger vaping world, with just under 20 years of experience the Volcano Hybrid is their latest introduction, taking over from the Volcano Digit.
The Hybrid’s name is appropriate – the blended convection/conduction double heating action means that conduction heating can get that temperature up quickly, and convection heating can then kick in to keep the vapor quality perfect. Coming in at 1.8 kilos and requiring an outlet for power, the Hybrid probably won’t be the machine you require for quick, on the go vaping sessions. However, less portability means more room for excellent tech and impeccable performance – and if you’re in the market for medical grade quality, we implore you to look no further.
With a clear, brightly lit and easy to navigate, touch screen LED display that showcases the temperature, the Hybrid is super easy to navigate for beginners and experts alike. And, if you’re one for options, the Hybrid can be easily switched between tube inhalation or valve balloon filling for vapor that you can store to use throughout the day. The Hybrid allows for full temperature control down to the degree and has introduced an app which can be used to control the temperature as well. The digital display features an easy-to-use control panel and precise temperature readings throughout your whole session.
The heating element is steel-clad ceramic, the heat exchanger is aluminium alloy, the heat-tempered polymer balloon is 100% food grade polythene, and the cellulose air system used for insulation is 100% food grade silicone. All of these elements combine seamlessly to create a top quality, versatile, functionable mechanism that is more friend than machine.
The Hybrid flaunts improved airflow management over its older desktop brothers and an even more rapid heat-up time (due to a redesigned heat exchanger that’s quicker and more efficient). The double-helix heat exchanger can pre-heat to your preferred temperature faster, and is ready to go in under 40 seconds.

The Hybrid is made for versatility and ease of use. Rather than just having the balloon filling option, gives you the choice of using the unit with an included whip attachment for direct pulls:
Easy Valve Balloon –
The easy valve system makes filling the balloons incredibly easy. The Easy Valve comes with a ready made balloon unit and also a mouthpiece, and once the old valve is no longer of use you can replace it with a new one.
Simply attach the valve to the unit, turn the forced air on, and the balloon will fill. Then simply detach to close the valve and store the vapour. There’s a small black plastic insert which is what opens the valve in the bag assembly when you push your lips up to it to take your draw. Vapour stored in this way will remain fresh for ages, is perfectly portable, disposable, and easy to share. Let’s just say the name is appropriate!
Whip Attachment –
The whip attachment is just a fancy name for being able to have a direct pull from your Volcano Hybrid. All you need to do to use this option is attach the loading chamber (with a clockwise quarter turn), slide the tube flexer onto the loading chamber, and then take your draw. With the whip, you can take as many draws as you would like and simply remove the filling chamber when you’re done.
If you require consistently excellent vapor quality, the Hybrid will not let you down, guaranteed. And, if you’ve never purchased a desktop vape and are looking for an investment and the best possible quality, the Hybrid is the newest Storz & Bickel reigning champion.
