Who’s the Arizer Solo for?

The Arizer Solo is for someone wanting great vapor at an introductory price without all the bells & whistles. In 2011 it set the vapor standard for portables and Arizer has released the Air and Solo II since then, but they have kept the Solo relevant with 6 years of continuous improvements. It’s a no-nonsense choice for anyone wanting cool, tasty vapor without breaking the bank.

Vapor that set the standard

Ceramic heater, stainless steel bowl, glass stems – that’s a material list you want in your airpath! By sticking with inert, proven materials the Solo keeps the standard it set years ago with pure, cool and tasty vapor. The only downside is the airflow restriction that it needs to keep the vapor thick will sometimes feel like you are sucking on a thick milkshake.

Rock solid

The Solo has been around a while, so you know it’s tried and true with continuous improvements. It’s one of the best selling portable vapes of all time and the design is so solid that Arizer used it for the Air and Solo II. All three vapes use the same heater, bowl and stem system. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Only features you need

Simplicity is the theme here with two buttons and 6 vaporizing temperatures (it technically has 7 temps, but we don’t count the bottom temp of 50° C / 122° F) that cover the full range from 185 ° C / 365 ° F to 210 ° C / 410 ° F. High temp vaporists might want something hotter, but my herbs look completely spent after vaping with the Solo on the highest temp.

Good battery life

You should get 90 minutes to 2 hours of run time from the Solo on a full charge, or about 6 to 9 sessions. And if you need more than that it can be used when charging after about a 25% charge.

Portable, not pocketable

The biggest knock on the Arizer Solo vaporizer has always been its larger size and breakable glass stems that make it portable but not something that is easy to throw in your pocket. That coupled with a slower heat up time of 2 minutes makes the Solo great for more relaxed sessions around the house, at parties or hiking.

Fantastic value

The Solo holds its value at this price point because of its efficiency and cool, tasty vapor. You can find smaller vapes with more features for the same money, but the vapor is usually sacrificed. So if you’re all about the vapor the Solo is a great deal!

If you’re looking for more

If you’ve read this far but want smaller or more features, we won’t leave you hanging! Check out Arizer’s other very similar portables, the Air and Solo II. Both give you the same great vapor, but the Air adds pocketability and removable batteries while the Solo II adds features.

Let’s take a look at some of the features of the Arizer Solo

Price – Selling at around $225, the Arizer Solo is slightly lower in price than models like the Pax by Ploom and the Firefly Vapoirzers; however, it is still more expensive than basic models like the Magic Flight Launch Box and the Vapir NO2. The aesthetic design also lies somewhere between the higher end and more economical models. Some people think the details of the Arizer Solo are not as stylish as the Pax or Firefly, but it does have a more modern and look than other less expensive models.

Reputation – The Arizer Solo has a strong reputation, typically earning it fair to good online reviews, which is why it’s frequently recommended by smoke shops. Due to its glass tube, the vaporizer is praised for its great-tasting quality vapor.

Guarantee – With the Arizer Solo, you get a 2-year warranty on the craftsmanship and parts, and a 1-year warranty on the battery. The ceramic heating element is backed by a lifetime limited warranty.

Prep Time – Depending on the temperature level that you select, the Arizer Solo can be ready for use in as little as 15 seconds or as long as 2 minutes and 30 seconds. When you first assemble the Arizer Solo, you may have a hard time inserting the glass tube into the tight O-ring seal on the vaporizer. You can make the process easier by preheating the vaporizer on the highest temperature setting. Don’t be afraid to use some force when inserting the tube. It is constructed out of durable glass, so it’s unlikely to break.

Portability, Size and Privacy – Arizer Solo measures 1.75 inches in width by 4.5 inches in height. It’s designed to be used on the go as a portable vaporizer. But it is larger in size than many of the other portables. As a result, it can be difficult to keep it concealed in your pocket. As a result, many experts at vape shops only recommend the Arizer Solo for individuals who want a cordless vaporizer to use at home.

Ease of Use – controls on the Arizer Solo are rather straightforward, and it’s simple to clean and maintain the model. Drawing from the device, however, can be challenging. Many people compare the experience of trying to pull vapor from the Solo as being similar to trying to suck up an extra thick milkshake through a straw. The best approach is to draw slowly and deeply, spending 5 to 25 seconds with each inhalation. The slower you draw, the thicker the vapor will be.

Heating and Temperature Regulators – Arizer Solo offers seven temperature settings with options ranging from 122 to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. The wide range of options makes this a very versatile device and greatly cuts down on the likelihood of combustion. It is a convection model, which helps to ensure great tasting vapor.

Power Supply – With the Arizer Solo, you get a lithium ion battery, which is meant to last for 2.5 to 4 hours – depending on the temperature setting. Reviews of the vaporizer indicate that many people experience a much shorter battery life than the stated standard. This could be because the users didn’t completely drain the battery before the first use. Then again, there’s always a chance that the battery life isn’t as long as other models.

Tips for Using the Arizer Solo

  1. Always grind your herbs to a medium coarseness prior to using the Solo.
  2. Never leave the dry herb vaporizer in a very cold place like inside your car in the wintertime.
  3. Keep your herbs loosely packed in the heating chamber to avoid blocking airflow and diminishing vapor production.

All in all, the Arizer Solo is a great quality vaporizer for those who are willing to pay the higher price tag. This vaporizer makes up for the amount of money it costs by being powerful and efficient, leaving none of your dry herb material untouched by the time you are finished vaping. The Arizer Solo uses convection heating technology, which not only completely eliminates the risk of combustion, it also helps to evenly spread the heated air it produces around the dry herb, making the vape more efficient. This will save you money in the long run.

The Arizer Solo features a powerful rechargeable battery with a wall charger. While you have this vape plugged into the wall, you are able to continue to use it which is really convenient. The battery itself only takes around an hour to charge and can last anywhere between 2.5 and 4 hours depending on the temperature setting you are using. Temperature options come in five unique levels that range from 122 to 410 degrees Fahrenheit, offering you total control over how you vape. The draw resistance is high, but the high quality vapor produced that travels through the glass mouthpiece is smooth and tasty making it worth the effort.

Because it is a handheld vaporizer but not quite a discreet and portable one, the Arizer Solo is recommended for those who need a high quality vaporizer at home.
