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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
The Arizer Solo vaporizer has a two year manufacturer’s warranty and a one year warranty on the battery
