Wemo plug. I have one and not only can I tell it to turn on and off once every half hour, but I can also turn on my volcano from work, or at a certain time like when i'm coming home from work.
When I was looking for a case for my hybrid. This is about the only one I found and it works great.
But I don't think a particularly discreet case exists, purely because of the size of the valcano itself.
I been using this water in one for the last few days and have been very pleased. I was using tap water that was very hard and this stuff is getting that off after some usage.

I really like this set up. It has a lot going for it. It humidifies, it cools and it creates a pressure gradient that automatically pulls vapor without having the air on.

This is what I got for mine and it works well. Only thing is hitting through the whip through a water pipe just doesn't produce a ton of vapor.
I did this setup and didn't like it. My mighty hits harder than my volcano through a water piece. The Magma Industries Obsidian is really good if you want the humidify your vapor. But if you really want to hit through a glass piece here's the link the the attachment I got. Take off the tube mouthpiece on the whip, put this on instead. As far as connecting a bag, I'm not sure what's out there.
I got this for traveling and it has worked well to pack it when not in use.
Hey FYI: the issue MoonSugar described is really common. A lot of folks solve it by getting a magnetic USB end that fits in the crafty. That way there is no strain when plugging/unplugging the charger.
Someone recommended this silicone tape. I thought about it today when I had a close call.
Yep! I do recommend getting an 18mm keck clip. Just makes sure the adapter stays on the hydrotube but totally optional.
The o-rings do a great job of holding the chamber top and glass together.
THIS will hold the Hybrid, herb chamber, power cable, whip, and a couple of bags.
It's pretty snug, but is decent for the price!
I got this one recently and cut it in half, it works great:

Maybe it depends on the Volcano model. In the hybrid manual it says the heating element uses 270w while the pump only uses 10w. I'm guessing you would need something like a 300w+ inverter for your 12v cig outlet in your car. Or something like a Jackery 500.
We got these as back up and haven't used them yet so can't vouch for them but they "look" totally fine. Reviews say they may be a smidge wider to tend to bulge a bit more.
I used Amazon. I couldn't find it anywhere local.

You need to replace the button, it's about to die. Mine did that a year or two ago, had a slight spark and the button died.
Here is an Amazon link for a replacement, storz and bickle do not sell them.

In that case you could just get one of the regular but strong fans and set it and the volcano near the window so everything goes out the window.
But honestly the volcano is a pretty smelly vape even with a smoke buddy. If you're really worried about it you can always block the door cracks with a towel. Wet it if you really want to keep the smells in.
Like others have said, it does dissipate pretty quickly so definitely better than smoking a joint. But stealth is not the Volcano's strong suit. Lol
I was thinking a fan like this might help, Vornado 460 Small Whole Room Air Circulator Fan with 3 Speeds, 460-Small, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BF3XTX0/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_QG3DVTEDJWFWEN3V3S9V

Do NOT plug this directly to your wall, the device is not compatible with US electricity.
Get one of these converters Link . Make sure to set it correctly and plug the volcano the the 240v plug.
Do not use one of those cheap travel adapter, they will not convert your voltage.
I just found another hose on Amazon. Clear and food grade, but same specs as original Volcano hose in 10' length. 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD which equals 2mm wall thickness... YAY! I just ordered it and will post again after it arrives.

Use a straw to get the good stuff out, you can cut the tip at an angle to make a scoop. I still replace since the thc binds to it eventually. I hate the material on this one but it’s the best dimensions I’ve found.
I bought this one from Daddy Bezos and it works really well. I didn’t want my wife to have to get out of bed to use the volcano, so I got this one so I can just pass the bong to her. It works great!
I went with this carrying case. It's not made to be nearly as tough as what you posted as it's basically a duffel bag with foam inserts. But it's made specifically for the Volcano and has been working great for me.

This bag is basically all you need to carry your volcano.
Definitely a good idea if you already had it, but that toolbox is pretty big and it's about $69 at most places.
For about $10 more you can get something like this
Congrats on the new volcano, hope you're enjoying it.
I got this scale about a month ago and I like it. It seems accurate and goes down to 0.001g. It was recommended by someone else on here and possibly sneaky Pete iirc.

I run some hot water, use a spoonful and let is dissolve in a tall glass, I toss in the obsidian, and then I add just a bit more to the opening at the top, the fill the glass/cup with enough water to cover everything standing up. Leave it overnight and then rinse out the next morning. I then use a separate glass and let the obsidian soak in distilled water to then rinse, finally let it rinse and air-dry for a bit. Do it once a week depending on usage.
No, I currently do not. I'm not sure what you mean by to expect. It's just a small piece of glass. You insert the barbed end into the whip and the frosted end into the bong. After a few hits you will start to get vapor and it's just like using the whip and mouth piece but with added filtration. I also own this one for the bent angle.

Cut to desired length.
The hybrid is complete out of the box. I bought the chamber reducer and ended up never using it. You can pack as little into the bowl as you’d desire, plus the reducer just throws weed around unless you have the capsules which reduce airflow. Personally the only two things I’d look into: refills on bags and tubing. You can get both stocked for 30-40$ in person or order in advance online and save $20+. I’ll share the links for cheap, reliable refills. Order these now since you’ll need it eventually and you don’t want to wait for shipping.
Thank me later.

I'm heavily contemplating the reduced chamber and the dosing capsules just to limit my intake, and since I'll be solo vaping.
This tubing works as an alternative to buying one through S&B. Safe material to vape through and everything. Super easy to set up, cut to desired length, attach to the other whip pieces and you are good to go.
With the male adaptor. Fill the bag like usual, then attach the bag to the male adaptor which goes in your bong.
These are the ones I use, they hold to the wall well and hold a whip easily or a bag.
This is what you also need. I have that one and also one that doesn't have a bend. I prefer the one I'm linking in this post.

>Not for nothing but their US operations and CS are based in California.
Figured that was the case since I saw that they were a German company.
>It’s been an absolute shit show since the start of the pandemic.
I figured that was the case, and with the whole shipping debacle that has been going on the past few months I was thinking maybe they were importing stuff from Asia and it took forever to get to California.
>They literally have 2-3 people working in the warehouse and about a dozen working remotely answering emails.
Those 2-3 people must only make up about half a brain, and clearly the remote people either aren't doing shit or they only handle the EU side of things, because I haven't gotten a single response from them.
>Overpriced replacement sets for a specific part aside. It’s become almost unbearable buying replacement parts/sets from them. Took 60 days for them to send me 2 balloon sets, some normal and fine mesh screens, and replacement plastic for the filling chamber. (I use the EZ-valve set so it’s more fragile and my dumb ass bro keeps knocking it onto the concrete floor in the garage).
Sucks that this is a pretty common thing from them. Luckily you can just use oven bags as a replacement instead of buying the bags like I had to do with The Herbalizer (glad I spent $600 on that about 3-4 years before because now they're out of business and the bags were the one-way deals where you can't remove the retainer clasp without breaking it, and you can't buy them anymore. I still have the whip and bong attachment though, so I can still use it/sell it).
I just looked on Amazon for the hell of it and people are selling the EZ bags and screens, but that's about it :-/
I picked up a DSLR camera bag from Amazon after reading advice in another thread.

Is this the top piece that I need?
And when you remove your chamber, do you need to remove the glass first? Or does the glass stick to the chamber?
I use the s&b grinder. I got the bigger one, but teeth are similar. The sides have grips to help prevent your hands from slipping, but they can be a little rough on my hands if the weed is sticky. Hasn't been bad enough for me to do anything about it, but I could see it.
If it's bad enough I'd look at something like a jar opener rubber grip. Traction without the irritation

Also, keep checking Amazon...it goes in and out of stock almost every few weeks. I preferred Amazon since I had GC’s to burn. I’d say if Amazon doesn’t restock them within a week or so, order direct.
Here is the Amazon page if you can’t find it:

I bought this for my hybrid. Not an exact match, the tubing wall seems a little thinner than the whip that came with the hybrid. The mouth piece doesn’t fit as snug, but it is snug enough that it doesn’t fall off randomly. When I attach the hose to the orange piece there is a kink in the hose do to the tubing wall thickness. Not perfect by any means, but does the trick.
So this exact thing on my knock-off is stripped. That disc is threaded and should screw back on. If it has been ripped off, chances are that threading is gone. What i did is apply a small ring of 550° heat resistant adhesive (glue). I bought this silicone based adhesive off Amazon and it cured in a matter of minutes. The glue was very inexpensive and I believe it was designed for gluing parts of a smoker back together.
I applied a thin-film with a toothpick, making sure to use just enough of the yucky-smelling adhesive around that threaded piece. The first time i did it, I hardly used any and that sucker didn't move for 7 months. Popped off once and this time i used the product a bit better.

I think you'll be satisfied with the easy valve. And good choice on the adapter. It's not needed but it definitely makes it easier and it's reusable.
If you don't have some spare turkey oven bags around the house, you can find them on Amazon. 25 bags for about $25 is not bad - especially considering Storz & Bickel charge $10 per bag.
