Price for quality and durability.
Yes, the Volcano is expensive, and yes I waited 4 years before buying one. But after 3 weeks of vaping and not smoking, my body is thanking me and this product is the first vape that seems sturdy enough to keep supplying me with balloons of joy for years to come. It is so, so, so sturdy. It just feels like incredible quality. Every piece that went into the construction is solid and the company stands by its products. You get a good number of extra balloons and mouthpieces in the box and I am set for quite a while. The machine seemed intimidating at first, but with its old-school industrial buttons, it couldn't be simpler to use. Hemper also had the best price I found when I bought it which is a huge plus!
