Arizer solo – The Volcano of the portable
(Last Updated On: July 2, 2015)

There are a lot of vaporizers in the market today. From the makers of Extreme-Q, the Arizer Solo is one of the better products out there when it comes to portable vaporizers. It fits the definition of a portable vaporizer given the fact that it can fit your palm. 

For starters, Arizer is one of the more popular brands comparable to the market’s best. If you take comfort in buying from a reliable company, this is a good investment for you. For its basics, the Arizer Solo Vaporizer is powered by an internal lithium battery that you can recharge without any problem. You can expect that the batteries to last for years given most sellers offer 2 years warranty. With the charger that it comes with, you can already charge the lithium batteries full within 2 hours. When it comes to the size and weight, it is like a soda can in terms of height. To be exact, it is around 11cm which appeals as a handy device. 

It has a ceramic body that looks durable. You have an option to use the ceramic heater of the Arizer to get vapor from dried flowers, tobacco, resin or just your typical herbs. This in its own makes it a great buy. Most products in the market today only allow you to use one type of herb. If you prefer different vapors, this is a great buy for you. 

Also, if you are looking for an aesthetic addition to your residence, you can also buy the Solo for this reason. Unlike most of the vaporizers that you will see online, the Solo vape was built not to be used discreetly when you are walking. Based on its construction, it makes sense that it doesn’t come with any case. This is the reason why it is a great display at home. 

Easy to Use Arizer Solo Vaporizer

The Arizer Solo Vaporizer is something easy to use. In fact, its straight forward design makes it appealing among hardcore vape users today. The device needs to be charged first before you can use it. As for its downside though, you have to make sure that you do not use and charge the vaporizer at the same time. But of course, if the vaporizer’s battery dries out in the middle of your session, you have to stop completely and plug it in. Arizer made it a point to avoid such discomfort to their users by allowing you to see how much power is remaining in the vaporizer. This way, you can decide whether you wan to charge it first or decide to have a full session with the Solo vape. 

The product is user friendly as you only need to push the unit’s up and down arrow and hold it for a second. Here, the beep will provide you an idea how much power it has left, and then you can find the heat setting that suits your preference. To some extent, I do prefer to have the Solo vaporizer at around 380 to 390 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the four and five setting of the device. Of course, you should never take my word for it. When it comes to heat preference, it may vary from person to person. If there is a chance that you are not pleased with the vapor you are getting, you can comfortably choose among the seven temperature settings that could reach 210 degrees Celsius. 

Once you have chosen the heat setting you want, you will find the vaporizer to light up and blink. This will tell you that the heater is now activated. Also, you will know exactly what the temperature of the vaporizer is.  When the gadget is heating up, this is when you prepare your herbs. Using the glass stem pieces, you can place your herbs by the end of the glass piece. 

Snug Fit To the Chamber

Similar to other vaporizers in the market, the product works best when you choose to dry your herbs (tobacco or even resins). Also, you may want to grind them fine in order to get the best experience from the Arizer Solo Vaporizer. One thing that I find difficult about this vape, though, is that the Arizer Solo stem is quite snug into the chamber. Unlike most products that can easily fit the stem in the heating chamber, you want to play around with your Solo vaporizer for a few minutes to get used to it. Based on research on the Solo vape though, I have found out that there are different user reactions as to how it all fits in the vaporizer’s chamber. It actually depends on what model you are using. 

Getting the Best Vapor?

Dense but high quality vapor is what you can expect from this product. In fact, in terms of quality, you can compare it with products like Iolite and Vape-or-Smoke.  In order to get the vapor from the device, it is ideal that you wait another 60 seconds once you have placed your herbs. One of the things that you will notice on the portable vaporizer is the fact that you may have to experience resistance when taking a draw. It is common to experience that not enough airflow goes through the chambers of the Solo for some reason. 

However, quality-wise, this is a great product since the quality of the vapor you are getting is simply just at par with the best in the market today. It was able to heat the material without compromising the overall temperature. It’s not over or under heated, thus giving you the best sensation there is. Since you will experience resistance from the device, it is a good idea that you try getting slow 10 second draws. This will get vapor that is not that thick in its density.  

Once you have turned on the device, you have around 12 minutes to use it before it automatically turns off. It is because of this feature that you can save on your batteries. Come to think of it, that is the same time you are about to finish one session. If you still need more time, you can always turn it back on manually. 

Another good thing about the Arizer Solo Vaporizer, is the fact that it carries a two year warranty. Also, once you have fully charged the device, you do not have to worry at all as you can use it continuously for as long as 3-4 hours. Once you have purchased the Arizer Solo, you will find a charger, a manual a potpourri dish, glass tubes and stainless bowl with it. 


The Solo, though classified as it is as portable vaporizer, is not really portable at all. Given the sturdy construction, and aesthetics, it is more of a product that you’d like to showcase as a centerpiece somewhere in your home. In terms of the things that it can do, it can certainly be one of the best products in the market today considering just how it handles different herbs for your vapor preferences. Whether it is your first time vaporizer, or you have invested on so many vaporizers already, this product offers a great experience for its users.
