The Arizer Solo is one of the most popular portable vaporizers on the market today. With long battery life and a simple, intuitive design, it is really a great vaporizer to use when you prefer not to be tethered to desktop unit. The Arizer Solo has a few unique characteristics and it does take a little time learn to use it properly, it provides an awesome vape once you master it.
At first glance, this model is small and attractive. I expected it to be really lightweight, but it’s actually kind of heavy and definitely solid enough to be durable. If you are accident prone, the Solo will be a good choice. Even if you accidentally drop it, you can probably still vape without much noticeable damage. While there are some glass pieces, they can easily be replaced if they did crack.
The Solo is easy to load, but the bowl is small so you have to be careful not to spill your dry herbs if they are really fine. Once it is loaded, it heats up quickly and you can start vaping. This is where things get a little complicated. The Solo definitely has a lot of resistance. It’s kind of like trying to drink a really thick milkshake through a straw. If you drag too hard, the vapor isn’t great. So the best method is to take long, gentle pulls and then your vapor will be perfect.
One of the biggest perks to the Arizer Solo is the multiple heat settings. You can actually choose between 7 different heat levels. At level one, the vaporizer heats to around 122 degrees and at level 7, it heats to 410 degrees. The higher the setting, the longer it takes to heat up, but even at level 7, it only takes about two and a half minutes. No matter which heat setting you use, it has an automatic shut off switch so you can conserve battery life between uses. After 12 minutes of no use, the Solo automatically shuts off. When you want to turn it back on, just press the downward arrow for a few seconds and it will instantly reheat to the same setting.
I really loved that the Solo requires very little maintenance. When you are finished vaping, just turn it upside down and take out the stem. Clean out any leftover dry herbs and then cover up the heating element until you are ready to use it again.
