The Solo portable vaporizer from Arizer has been about a few years now and it’s still one of the best selling portables due to the fact that it’s a solid, reliable vape.
Over the past month or so we’ve been putting the Solo portable through it’s paces and we’ve loved every minute of it.
The Solo portable vaporizer is made by the guys at Arizer who also make the Extreme Q desktop vaporizer which we’ll be reviewing at a later date. The Solo was Arizer Techs first portable vaporizer, released way back in 2011.
As you can see from the pictures the Solo is really well finished, the kind of finish you’d expect from high end electronics.
The styling yells retro sci-fi which we absolutely adore. Looks real cool sitting on the computer desk.
It comes with two glass stems, one straight and the other curved, at one end is the small chamber where you put your weed, the other end is the mouthpiece. With a quick Google search you can find a host of accessories to go along with the Solo, there’s even a water bubbler attachment if you’d like a bit of filtration and a cooler vaping experience.
We’ve had some vape heads tell us that the draw resistance on the Solo was a problem, but we love it. In fact the lack of draw resistance with the Ascent from Davinci Vaporizers would have been our main negative about the Ascent so it’s a welcomed feature with the Solo.
The unit works off two buttons, keeping it simple again Airzer, nice one :-), and has a series of LEDs to indicate the heat level, heater status and charging status.
Here are the available temperature levels along with the average warm up times
Level 1-50°C / 122°F (15 sec)
Level 2-185°C / 365°F (1 min)
Level 3-190°C / 374°F (1 min 10)
Level 4-195°C / 383°F (1 min 30 sec)
Level 5-200°C / 393°F (1 min 50 sec)
Level 6-205°C / 401°F (2 min 10 sec)
Level 7-210°C / 410°F (2 min 30 sec)
The Solo has a built in rechargeable lithium ion battery that takes about 4 hours to charge and will give you a approx 2 hours of continous vaping. You’ll be pleased to know that the latest models can be used while charging. There’s also an energy saving function built into this vape, the unit shuts down after 12 mins to save on battery power.
So what would we change about this vape? Maybe a interchangeable battery, a little slimmer…and it just so happens that Arizer have another portable vaporizer, The Arizer Air you could say it’s The Solo’s little sister, it comes with an interchangeable battery, it’s smaller, lighter and heats up twice as fast.
The Arizer solo vaporizer does the job it was intended to do, it reminds me of that old saying KISS ‘Keep it simple stupid’.
