Arizer Solo Portable Vaporizer

Solo Portable Vaporizer The Solo vaporizer by Arizer is pretty cool, and it performs fairly well, there are just a few important things to consider.

It’s made by the same company that produces the Extreme-Q, which is a popular combo whip/balloon vape for home use.

The best part about the Solo is the vapor quality, it’s clean and tasty. It’s also very easy to use, which is great for beginners. However, this vape has one of the strongest draw resistances of any model I’ve reviewed.

This means that pulling through the glass stem feels like trying to drink a really thick milkshake through a straw; it’s hard, and you typically need to take about a 5-10 second draw to get a good amount of vapor.

Something else to keep in mind with this one is that even though it’s technically portable it’s a little too bulky, heavy and fragile to conveniently carry around with you on-the-go. That’s an area where I feel the Pax is a better choice because it’s smaller, lighter and more discreet.

If you’re looking for a good cordless vape to use around your home this is definitely one to consider.

Click here to shop at the store I bought mine from, they sell the newest model Solo available. They’re an authorized Arizer dealer and have been around for a long time, which means you’ll actually have a valid warranty, and they also provide excellent service & quick shipping.

UPDATE: The newest model of this vape can now be used while it is plugged in and charging, this was not previously possible with the model I show in my review.

Stay up!

Video transcription:

This here is the Solo portable vaporizer. This model is made by the same company that makes the Extreme-Q, which is a very popular whip style vape that you plug in.

The Solo is powered by an internal rechargeable lithium battery. It’s about as tall as a soda can but not as wide, and it actually has a little bit of weight to it.

This model is actually one of the better portable vaporizers I’ve tried, and there’s only a couple of downsides to it. It’s fairly simple and straightforward to use, and it only comes with a few parts.

Before you can start using this Vape you’ll need to charge it up, and it does come with a wall charger included. However, it’s important to note that with the included charger you cannot charge and operate this device at the same time. This isn’t a huge deal, but what it means is that if the battery runs out halfway through your session you’ll need to plug it in and let it charge for a little while before you can resume vaping.

This probably won’t happen, however, because one of the cool features is that it does indicate how much battery power you have left every time you turn it on, so you’ll be able to gauge if you have enough power for a full session.

So to turn the unit on you push the up and down arrows at the same time and hold for one second, then it will beep and immediately show you how much charge is left. Then, the unit sits in an idle state until you select the heat setting.

Now with this vape, just like the Extreme-Q made by the same company, I found that it works best set between 383°F and 392°F, which is the 4 and 5 settings on the Solo. As I make it a point to always mention, the best heat setting to use is really personal preference, so what you should really do is experiment on your own to find what setting you enjoy the most.

So once you hit the up arrow and the indicator reaches your desired heat setting, the unit will start to heat up and his red light will start blinking to indicate that the heater has been engaged. If you keep an eye on the indicator lights it will also show you what temperature the unit is currently at.

While it’s heating up you can put the unit aside and grab one of the glass stem pieces, which is where you will pack your herbs. It comes with two stems, one straight and one angled, and this little part sectioned off at the end is where your herbs will go.

So what you’ll do is you grind up your herbs real fine, and like most vaporizers the Solo performs best with material that is more on the dry side. Once you have your stem packed you can then insert it into the top of the unit.

Now the way that the stems fit inside the heating chamber is a little weird, because for me it didn’t seem like they would fit in at first, almost as if they were too wide. But then after playing around with it for a minute I got it to go all the way down into the chamber. You would think that this would mean that the stem would be held tightly in there but I actually found that they do wiggle around a tiny bit and it’s not exactly a snug fit.

I’ve heard mixed reports from people about how the stems fit inside the chamber, and it seems that there’s a few different versions of this Vape floating around out there. The model number of the one I have happens to start with M107.

So the unit itself will reach the temperature you set fairly quickly, generally in under a minute or two, but before you actually start vaping you’ll want to insert the stem peace with your herbs and wait another minute or so for it to heat up. What this will do is give you better vapor draws right from the start.

So after waiting that extra minute for it to heat up you could start taking draws. Now one of the first things you might notice, which is different from many other portable vaporizers, is that there seems to be a good amount of resistance when you are taking your draw with this vape. What I mean by that is that there doesn’t seem to be as much airflow through the heating chamber as some other vapes.

This doesn’t seem to affect the quality of the vapor, it just might take you a few times to get used to it if you are not someone who is used to pulling very hard when you take draws.

So what I really like about the Solo is that it produces some of the best tasting vapor you’ll find from a portable Vape. The heating element and chamber seem to do a great job at vaporizing your material without under or over heating it.

Because of the slight resistance you’ll feel, it’s a little difficult to get big vapor clouds from this thing, but I found that a nice slow 10-second draw will consistently provide a good medium-density vapor.

Also, as a nice little bonus feature, the glass stems that they provide with the Solo do fit nicely inside the standard 14 mm or 14.5 mm slides that most water pieces have. Some people have found that filtering the vapor through water can help smooth it out and reduce possible irritation.

The Solo also has an automatic shutoff timer which will turn the unit off automatically after running for 12 minutes. This is just about the amount of time you’ll need for a full session, but if you find that you need a little more time you can quickly turn the unit back on and resume vaping.

Through my testing I was able to get about eight full 12 minute vape sessions before the battery ran out. Then, it takes about an hour and two to fully recharge it again.

One of the last things to consider with the Solo is that they don’t include a carrying case or anything when you buy it, so if you do plan on carrying this around with you you’ll have to have somewhere safe to keep it so the glass stems don’t break by accident.

Overall I think this is a very good product and I’m sure I’ll be getting a lot of good use out of it.

If you think this Vape is right for you go to SoloVape.info which is where I got mine from, and they are a fully authorized dealer with excellent customer service, so I definitely recommend you check them out.

  1. so if you could only have one and had to choose between the arizer solo and iolite wispr or others in that price range witch would it be?

    thanks 4 your help man.

    • The Solo would be my choice. Even though it might not be AS portable as some of the others (bc of the glass) I really enjoy the quality and taste of the vapor it produces.

          • As a 65 year old using medical herb I can say that the draw on the arizer solo is too difficult for me personally. Even though my Dr. recommended the solo, if you lack lung capacity or for any reason cannot handle a HARD DRAW then the solo is not for you. Getting old sucks.

          • Thanks for posting, I agree that this vape has some pretty significant draw resistance, the most I’ve felt in any of the models I’ve reviewed so far.

          • Good products but horrible to deal with their customer support people really reply with a lot of BS like if you have a loose stem for the Solo it is better and you get a better draw. Come on anyone knows you can’t get a good draw if you have a huge air leak,

          • I purchased my Solo as a first. Still using it daily 1.5 years later, great machine. Worth every nickel. I enjoy the 5 amp AC adapter, makes heating up much faster

          • Steve: That comment is confusing but I feel it might be accurate as well, having used the unit for about four months now. There’s a weird little quirk to it: if you are looking directly into the metal heating element, there are four tiny holes at the very base of the machined metal containment area for air/heat to come into the herb chamber… but the glass stem sort of settles all the way to the “corner”/base of the metal heating chamber and nullifies some of the air flow when it is in as far and as snuggly as possible.

            It seems to fit too snuggly for it’s own good and if you pull it out just a shade the air flow increases without the glass blocking those holes directly.

            A simple fix (arizer) would be to model the glass stem with some little glass feet (coming off the base of the stem at intervals (3 would be ideal) around the stem, holding it farther away from the holes in general… this would increase air flow and make for a more pleasant experience I think.

    • The Solo arrived a few days ago and it broke down after couple times of turning it on the same day of arrival. Arizer customer service has been notified immeiately by email once and twice by phone there has been no response. The clinic who recommended that I pester the company which tells me a lot about the customer service. I would never have bought this crap and be very wary of both the product and especially the service if considering the product.

  2. Hi,
    The WHISPR is not suited to heavy usage. I went through three of them (in five months) before I sought an alternative.
    I now have the Arizor Solo but the glass connection to the heat chamber seems really wobbly and it doesn’t actually fit into the heat element. Whereas the Arizor Extreme-Q for home use fits together smoothly. I am still learning on the solo I guess.

    • Yea the stem connection on the Solo is a little weird for me too, it wobbles around a bit, but I do like the quality and taste of the vapor from it.

      • They might have intentionally made that connection lose being that its glass and would be getting moved around…a little play likely reduces breakage? They obviously did lots of r&d so to have that be a poor quality issue seems unlikely.

    • I would have to recommend the Solo over the DaVinci. The quality of the vapor and the taste will be excellent with the Solo, the main downside being the draw resistance. The DaVinci doesn’t really have any great benefits in my opinion other than being smaller and lighter than the Solo, and it has at least a couple negatives.

      • One more comparison: Pax vs. Solo, what do you think? I’ve been reading up on both of them. It seems the Pax takes the cake on design and portability and the Solo on quality of vapour. I’m making the grand switch to only using vaporizers cause of a lung condition so I want something that’s good both for home and portable use. Do you have a recommendation?

        Cheers for the videos btw, they’ve been super informative!!

        • Hey Johnny,

          My apologies for the delayed response.

          Pax vs Solo is a tough call, but overall I rate the Pax slightly higher and find myself preferring it when I’m on-the-go.

          As you mentioned the Pax has a more advanced design and is definitely more portable (easier to carry around), and as far as vapor quality I think the Solo is only marginally better, they’re very similar in that regard.

          If I had to pick one I would go with the Pax though, I really like it.

          Glad you found the vids helpful, stay up!

          • I find if you take small inhales during your long breath (like puffing it) I get a much much better draw. I used to have to use the flight box like that so it became a habit but I have not had any problems with my draw because of it.

  3. I’ve never used a vapor before and want something that will last as well as portable. What do you recommend.

    Ps. Your YouTube posts are awesome.

    • Hey sup,

      If you’re looking for a portable vape there are currently 3 models I recommend the most: the Pax, the Solo and the Launch Box.

      The Pax is what I consider the most portable and easiest to use, the Solo produces the best tasting vapor out of the bunch (only slightly), and the Launch Box is good because it is very small, fast and inexpensive.

      Glad you like the vids!

      • I think I’ll try the launch box because the pax isn’t able to be shipped to Australia yet, but dose the launch box come with a power adaptor? I’ve seen one on YouTube but can’t find one on the net. !

        • Cool – it doesn’t come with the power adapter but you can order it directly from Magic-Flight themselves

          Let me know how you like it!

          • Thank you soo much for your help man!!! I’ll defently post back when I get it.

  4. So you put the herb in the bottom of the draw stem, and then put it into the vaporizer body? Does the herb fall out of the stem as you are putting it into the vaporizer?

    • Yes exactly.

      Normally nothing falls out when putting the stem into the chamber but if you do happen to have issues with that you could always hold the stem upright and turn the unit upside down to slide it on top.

  5. The newest version of the solo vap has a expanding and contracting O ring inside of it to fit to the glass mouthpiece so it doesnt spin around or fall out. When you first get your solo vap you should let it go though one cycle(after the auto shut off) then firmly insert the mouthpiece. Yours could be loose and not fitting properly because the O ring may have never been set properly. Also, each glass mouthpiece vary slightly in size so if you change individual mouthpieces around(ex. Change from straight to curved) you will have to reset your O ring to fit the new mouthpiece. Something to keep in mind :).

      • Hey Bud!!

        could you explain what
        “When you first get your solo vap you should let it go though one cycle(after the auto shut off)”

        since I’m a noob and i don’t even know what that means.
        also, I think I’ ve read you burn off some of the factory gunk first, and thensome other tips

        Could you make like a quick compilate of all the stuff and tweaks and tips and tricks that as a user you both NEED to know, and also would benefit from knowing about the solo?

        Thanks!

        • Hey Nati,

          With most vapes it’s recommended to do a “dry run” when you first open it. This means turning it on, setting the heat to a high setting, and waiting 10-20 minutes, with the herb chamber empty.

          This just helps ensure that any oils used in the manufacturing process are gone before you start using it.

          I don’t have many tips or tricks with the Solo but one other thing a lot of people end up doing is putting a finer screen inside the glass stem. The holes that are pre-made in the stem are a little on the large side and can sometimes let your material pass through and get stuck on the inside of the glass.

    • Hey what I do is after packing the stem I turn the unit itself upside down and then slide it on top. So basically the part where the herbs are only faces down once it’s inside the unit.

  6. Due to your great vid review, I purchased my Solo back in June…it hasn’t failed me since. I am the type of medicinal user who likes to smoke on the go, meaning I travel a lot so I usually keep this handy device in the car. Rather than having to fool with a lighter with two hands, I can pack up my medicine and let it heat up as I drive. Then whenever I feel like it, I take drags every so often. It is great, discreet, and inconspicuous…people think I’m drinking from a bottle.

    So thank you for your advice, I have enjoyed it since, and continue using it. Though I would recommend buying screens for it. It can get a lil messy.

  7. Im looking for a portable vape. That good for herbs and concentrates like oils and pollen would you recommend this for that if not what other portable vape would be suited for both herbs and oils. I was considering the solo or the iolite.

    • Hey as of right now all of the vapes I’ve reviewed are designed for use herbs only. Some of them may work with some forms of oils or concentrates, but they weren’t really designed to so I don’t talk about it much. I’m hoping to expand into concentrate vapes in the near future – thanks for your post.

    • Hey no prob have you tried putting the stem in a ziplock baggie with some rubbing alcohol and shaking it up? That usually does the job for me, sometimes I also take a cotton swab afterwards to clean out any remaining bits.

    • best way to clean your stem: get some milk to boil and then put your stems into it. the fat of the milk will pull out all herbal remains. the best of this: add some honey to the milk and you have a nice shake wich will make you also happy :)

  8. Hi, I’m totally new to using lettuce (herbs) and vaporizing. I haven’t done it in at least 13 years and that was smoking it. I have been very sick with an autoimmune/vascular disease and I’ve been on chemo and prednisone for 8 years. I’m in a lot of pain often and with prednisone it’s so hard to ever fall asleep. I cannot smoke herbs, but I’m getting some and was told to vape. Please help me…is this a good vape to start out with? It won’t be used all the time. Is it hard to get a hit? I have no idea what temp to use etc either. Consider me a kindergartener in terms of this. Any help is much appreciated.

    • Hey Colleen,

      Vaporizing is definitely a good alternative, especially in a situation like yours (which I am sorry to hear about).

      I’ll keep it real simple and give you a high-level overview first…

      Portable vaporizers are more convenient when you’re on-the-go but desktop (home) units tend to produce more vapor that is more potent.

      This doesn’t mean portable units won’t do the job, it just means you sacrifice a little bit of performance for portability.

      This specific vape (the Solo) is one of the better portables, and I do like it and think it works well. It can produce a good amount of vapor and it has a good taste.

      The drawbacks are that it has a good amount of draw resistance, meaning it can be a little difficult to pull. It’s not like regular smoking in that regard, it feels like a bit of work to get a good amount of vapor.

      It will still do the job and I think it’s fairly easy to use and efficient.

      This vape has 7 heat settings (1-7) and I’ve personally found that setting 4 or 5 produces the best results.

      I hope this helps and if you have any other questions about this or others vapes let me know!

  9. I cant decide between the solo and NO2. The resistance of the solo has me worried about clogging and herbs being pulled through the holes. Someone posted earlier about putting a screen in the chamber to help with the herbs being pulled through the holes. I was wondering if you’d tried putting a screen in the chamber to help with the resistance? Thanks in advance!!

    • Solo will produce more vapor, and it will taste better, but there’s really no way to avoid that draw resistance.

      You can try fitting a screen in the stem to catch any tiny particles but I don’t personally do it and don’t think it’s really necessary. The particles never reached my mouth, if they do make it through the chamber holes they just get stuck to the side of the stem.

      The NO2 doesn’t have that draw resistance, but overall I use my Solo more and think it’s the better of the two.

      • Bud,
        Many people complain that the Solo has the most draw resistance when in reality it is the easiest to draw from; just lift up the stem about 1 to 2 mm while drawing in and this will create a cooler air pocket making it super easy to draw in and a more comfortable cooler air to breath. Then just push the straw back down to heat up the herbs again for a few seconds and repeat the steps. I never get burnt herbs, it vapes evenly and all I need is a few small bits of herb to fill 1/8 of the chamber.

  10. Hey man, great reviews, so very helpful! Have you ever had a chance to try a Thermovape and compare it to the Pax? That would be interesting!
    Quick question about the Solo – are you able to hit it 4 or 5 times then turn it of then fire it up again later with the same stem pack without losing vapor between sessions? Suitable for hitting the same herb pack several times in the course of a day? Thanks!

    • Hey thanks,

      Never had a chance to review a thermovape unfortunately, they discontinued it right before I was ready to buy one. They have a new model coming out real soon that I’ll probably pick up when it becomes available.

      The Solo works best when you vape it all in one shot, but it is possible to stop mid-session and save the rest for later. The chamber is fairly small in this one so instead of doing that it might be better to just pack a smaller amount two separate times. Generally when you vape most of the flavor comes out in the first few draws, so when you re-vape used material it usually doesn’t taste that great.

  11. How is the Solo at concealing smell? Im living at my parents place and they can’t know I smoke so this Ia the most crucial feature for me? I want the solo but I have heard nothing about the smell it produces

    • If odor is a big concern for you I’d probably lean toward a vape like the MFLB, where you can take smaller draws and disengage the heater between pulls.

      You’ll get some odor with any vape, but models where you can turn off the heat between draws will give you more time to deodorize, or blow it out a window.

      With the Solo and most other vapes the heater is engaged for the entire session, so you need to vape it all within a window of about 15 minutes. This vape produces a good amount of vapor which will have an odor to it, so you’ll need to do something to control it.

    • Hey sup, temperatures that cold might affect the performance or battery life but I’m not totally sure, thank the lord it only gets down to the +20s where I live :P

  12. Hey Bud,

    How do you think the Solo compares to home units like the SSV? I want something for at home and like the freedom of the bag system from my Volcano but I find the bag to look very stupid and its also crackly and annoying and I’m sick of buying new bags they go stale to fast to me. I really liked the flavor of the SSV and was wondering because of all the good reviews on this unit if it compares to the vapor quality of the home vaporizers.

    Thx :)

    • Hey Jen,

      I think the Solo is good for a portable but I wouldn’t consider the vapor quality to be on the same level as the SSV or other desktop units.

      The vapor it produces is good but it’s just not as strong, and there’s not as much of it. It’s also a bit hotter and therefore not as comfortable. It does have a good taste though, but that’s just one aspect of vapor quality I consider.

      Vape it up!

  13. hey bud,

    i have the pax and i find myself cleaning it at least 2 times a week and was wondering if this vape needs to be cleaned that often and how much fits into one bowl and how many draws you can get from a packing and what is the cloud size compared to the pax

    Thanks

    • Sup Johnny,

      The Pax definitely requires a little more detailed cleaning than the Solo, but the Solo does also build up residue fairly quickly in the glass stem. Overall though the Solo is less maintenance.

      The Solo chamber size is a little smaller than the Pax, so you’ll get slightly fewer draws from a single packing. However, the vapor it produces is slightly denser and slightly tastier than the Pax vapor, just a little.

      This vape is also a bit bulkier and heavier, and one of the pieces is glass, so it’s not quite as convenient or easy to use on-the-go.

      Battery life is pretty close but the Solo might last about one session longer, approximately 75 mins versus 60 mins on medium heat settings.

  14. Hey, I was wondering how long do you think the battery in the solo would last untill it needs to be replaced? 2 years? More/Less?

    Thanks

    • Hey Ben yea I’d say 2 years is probably a reasonable estimate, maybe a little longer depending how it’s used. I’ve had mine for about 8-9 months and it still seems to hold a charge very well, I haven’t noticed any significant reduction in battery life yet.

  15. I like the PAX, but I’m on the road a lot so I need something with a bigger battery. I’m trying to decide between the Solo and the new Vapor Blunt 2.0 (NOT the old, huge monstrosity, but the new version that came out in December). Any recommendations/ thoughts?

    • I personally feel the Pax is the vape to get if you’re on the road a lot, because it’s the most convenient to carry and store and it’s the easiest to use while you’re doing other things.

      The Solo is cool and I like it but I don’t take it outside my home, and I haven’t had a chance to review the new vaporblunt yet so I can’t comment on that much, but thank you for the request.

  16. Hey there!
    Thanks for this review. I just bought the Pax but am very seriously considering exchanging for the Solo because I’ve read/heard that the cleanup on the Pax is annoying. I don’t know if this is a factor but I’m using for insomnia and was wondering if you still prefer the Pax over the Solo, if you think the cleanup on the Pax is a drag and if one might be better for insomnia. I’ll be using this in my home only but would like to be able to carry it in my bag when I’m away for the night. I would very much appreciate your thoughts!!!
    Minty

    • Hey Minty,

      I like both the Solo and the Pax. I think they perform similarly but have a distinct difference…

      The Solo is a little heavier and bulkier, and it’s also more fragile (because of the glass stem). The Pax is way more convenient to carry around and use on-the-go, but as you mentioned there is more maintenance involved to keep it clean and functioning at peak performance.

      So I think it really comes down to how you will be using the vape most – if you want to be able to quickly and easily throw it in your bag and take it with you when you leave home, you want the Pax. But if you use it mainly at home and don’t need to it to be super-portable, the Solo is a great choice.

  17. hey man,

    I’m looking for an alternative to smoking, as I’ve been smoking the herb for 4 years on almost a daily basis. I don’t want the odor lingering in my place any longer and I’m looking for an affordable, durable vape. Durable in a sense that I will be using it multiple times a day for months at a time. Through some research, I decided that the Magic Flight Launch Box was my best choice (I forgot to mention that I prefer portable). My only problem is that one of my friends bought it for college and didn’t like it. I’ve been looking at the solo and its really caught my eye.

    Is it worth the extra however much? I’m prettttty broke right now.

    How does going from smoking daily to either of these vapes compare?

    If neither of them really worth it or should I invest in a cheaper manual flame vape such as the vape genie (this thought just popped into my head my apologies if it’s a dumb question) ?

    Thanks!

  18. also, I’ll be using it often with my girlfriend who isn’t the brightest bulb sometimes if you catch my drift. I’ll also be medicating with plenty of new people here and there so is the solo significantly easier to operate? Will it be worth the extra money? Like I said before, I’m on a pretttty tight budget but I’m dying to buy a vaporizer I cannot have the extremely strong odor of smoke in my place any longer.

    • Hey Jordan,

      The Solo is a great vape, and I’d definitely consider it durable and well-made.

      The main issue I have with it, as far as it being a portable vaporizer, is that you really can’t fit it in your pocket or easily carry it around.

      It’s a little heavier and bulkier than other portables, and it does have that glass stem which makes it a little more fragile.

      However, if you’re going to use it mainly at home, and just want the freedom of no cords, it’ll definitely do the job.

      The main way it’s going to differ from smoking is in how it feels while vaping. This vape has a fairly strong draw resistance, and you need to take about a 10 second draw to get a lot of vapor, so it’ll just a little getting used to.

      I like the MFLB too and I use mine often, but it’s a little trickier to use and doesn’t produce as much vapor (it’s still potent though).

      So based on everything you said you need, I think the Solo will work. It’ll be easy for your girlfriend and friends to vape with it, you’ll just want to tell people to be careful with the glass.

      Also I’m assuming you want a portable vape, but if you don’t need it to be portable there are desktop units you can get in the same price range that will produce more vapor that is stronger (Da Buddha, Hot Box).

  19. Do you know if it would harm the battery to charge it after every 2-4 bowls? Just to make sure I always have a full charge.

    • Hey from what I’ve researched it’s actually good for lithium-ion batteries when you keep recharging them after each use, or when they’re down to roughly 80% capacity, as opposed to draining the battery completely before charging.

  20. I am allergic to any kind of smoke so I need something that has zero combustion or else my throat swells up. I tried the atmos raw but it was basically an electronic pipe. I need to know before the investment which vaporizers truly do vaporize and what you reccomend for portable vapes in that respect.

    • Yea the AtmosRaw is a combuster…

      But none of the other vapes I’ve reviewed work like that, so you’d be good with any of them.

      If you look at my homepage generally any vape I rate 80/100 or higher is one that I personally like and recommend, and none of them combust.

  21. Finally got one and you are right it is simple and great. You might not have had this info when you reviewed, but mine come with special instructions that if the glass tube does not go in readily to charge the unit fully and run the heat cycle for 1 full 12 minutes session. The stem then goes in with very little effort. The only q I have is does the higher the heat setting produce more vape or just burn herb faster.. [edited]

    • Cool glad you like it, thanks for posting an update.

      There is a sweet spot (or range) as far as the best temperature to vape at. I’ve personally found the 4 and 5 heat settings (383°F and 392°F) to provide the best quality vapor.

      If you raise the temp higher than that you might get a tiny bit more vapor, but not always, and it will make the vapor taste harsher.

  22. Bud,

    Ur site was instrumental in helping me purchase my 1st vape. First the solo is a top notch semi-portable unit. 2nd ur heat setting is spot on, u have to be patient, but (draw resistance aside) the solo does not disappoint. Users must make sure they get the most recent units! Thanks chief and keep vaping!

  23. Hi,
    I bought a Pax because I can’t smoke anymore. I’m a singer and it affects my throat. The Pax is a huge improvement over regular smoking but I still find it slightly aggravating my throat. I happened to try my friend’s Iolite yesterday and it was very clearly a cooler and more soothing experience of vapor. But I don’t like the idea of butane or that noise it makes. What about the Solo? Do you think the Solo provides a higher quality of vapor? I seriously need to get something that vaporizers, not just combusts better. Can the solo be compared to something like Dabuddha? I mean, is the basic concept of the portable Solo closer to vaporizing with a home unit?
    Thanks so much for your time and attention in answering my question!

    • Hey I haven’t tried the Pinnacle yet but I think I’m going to be reviewing one in the next few weeks, I’ll post a vid if/when I do.

  24. Aloha from Hawaii! Thank you for all of your comments to all of the users on this site. I’ve read a bunch of different review sites, blogs, forums, etc., and your site by far has the best information out there. I think all of also appreciate your timely responses and the positive vibe that you hit us with. Hope all of that karma comes back to you brah. I’m about to pull the trigger on that solo yalls keep talking about. A bit more expensive than the no2 which I was also looking at, but whatevers. Mahalo again for your good work!

  25. Just want to start off by saying your awesome and the information you provide is second to none. Just got the Solo and I couldn’t be more pleased. But with its small bowl I find it hard to stir during a session. Any tips on stirring and getting an even vape?

    • Hey Ed,

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying the vape

      I don’t typically stir my material with this one, if you take enough draws it should vape it all the way through

      Experiment a little with grinding finer, or packing tighter, you might get more even coverage

      Stay up!

  26. Hey bud I was hearing that the earlier solo models had problems such as flaking and off gassing. Do you know if a model purchased in july/august of 2012 may have those problems? The model # starts with M1D if that helps.

    • Hey Adam I’m not really sure, I haven’t heard about that, but I got mine in early 2012 and it doesn’t seem to have any issues like that, my version starts with M107.

  27. Arizer Solo is nothing but garbage, 3 week of use housing for the stem became so loose it moves all over the place, you can no longer walk and do other things with it, you will end up dropping and breaking your stems which I ended up doing. Contacted service I was told they are suppose to be loose if that is the case they should stop advertising it as a portable device because it is NOT, unless you want to walk around like you are holding a 64oz drink, cheers people, don’t get fooled like I did.

  28. Great work, thanks for all the help. I love this vape. I wonder about keeping it in the glass and tapping it and letting it fall out. Any comments on which or neither gets the most out of the herb?

  29. Yo Bud!

    Thanks so much for all your reviews about the Solo and other devices. I’ve been smoking for more than 5 years and have been searching for a cleaner, healthier and cheaper alternative. It seems that the investment in a portable vape, especially one of high quality such as the Solo is really worth it in the long-term especially for health, but also financially.

    Since I narrowed down my selection to either a Pax or a Solo, I’m really leaning towards the Solo. Yes I admit the Pax is a more stealthy, better looking and all round more portable piece of equipment, but since vapour quality & maintenance are high on my list, I have practically settled on the Solo. It’s also much easier to get it in the UK, as the Pax is only sold in the US and costs much more to bring it to the UK. The biggest downside also with the Pax is the number of reviews I’ve read mentioning the mouth piece getting stuck (which I understand is a cleaning issue but still too much risk for such an expensive vape, even with the 10 year warranty). As far as I can tell the Solo also produces better quality vapour/taste even if only slightly.

    I can tell you that the glass tube actually became a Unique Selling Point in my eyes because of the difference in flavour it gives (a little like preferring to drink water from a glass bottle rather than a plastic one even though plastic wins when is comes to portability hands down), so even though it sacrifices durability with the addition of the glass stems, I think it’s worth it. I do have only one issue that I can’t get past so far and the only reason I haven’t as yet purchased my Solo. Draw resistance. I understand that it doesn’t affect vape quality but this is a major turn off for me. I’m surprised so many people love the Solo so much despite this! The description of sucking thick milkshake through a straw isn’t a feeling I want whilst vaping, especially as I’m buying a vape to totally replace smoking. So I’m really unsure with that. I have read some reviews that mention wooden stems and alternative stems which apparently make a big difference with the draw resistance issue, but I haven’t read or heard you mention anything like that. I did search to see when Arizer would be releasing a newer version as it seemed obvious they would correct this issue, but nothing new on that front. It seems such a shame that the Solo ticks so many boxes only to fail when it comes to the draw resistance. I’m wondering if you know of any other methods or attachments that can be used to get rid of any draw resistance? And finally, do you advise the ceramic chamber or the stainless steel overall? What is the model number of the Solo I should get?

    Your help is much appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    Professor X

    • Sup!

      I don’t really think there’s any way to completely get rid of the draw resistance – being a conduction style vape the way it’s designed basically requires a slower airflow through the chamber for complete vaporization.

      I haven’t tried any of the aftermarket stems that supposedly lighten the draw, so I can’t say for sure how they work, but it doesn’t seem to me that the stem is the source of the resistance.

      The store I link to will always be offering the latest model, and that’s what I would recommend going with.

      Stay up!

  30. Hey bud,
    Great reviews man they’re all very helpful and informative. Keep it up!

    I’m new to vaping so this may sound weird, but when everyone talks about the solo having better “vapor quality” does this mean that it will get you [stronger results], faster?

    Also, how does the size of the solo’s chamber compare to the size of the oven on a pax? I know you’re supposed to put roughly .2 in the pax oven, but what is the recommended amount to put in the solo?

    • Hey thanks Ben,

      Generally yes when people talk about vapor quality they’re referring to the strength and taste.

      But in this case, Solo vs Pax, there is no difference in strength and only a marginal difference in taste.

      The Solo herb chamber can probably hold roughly .25g max, and I’d say it works best when packed full, but will work with as little as .15g. The max capacity of the Pax oven is probably around .3-.4g and it also works best when full but there is a way to get good results and use only .15g.

  31. Hey There!

    I’m looking for a portable vaporizer that is rugged. I had an MFLB and loved it. Two trenches, and I was gone, however, I no longer have it. Now I’m looking for a new vape and I want to upgrade. I was thinking about getting the Da Vinci, but I have seen so many glowing reviews on the Solo that I am now second guessing my decision.

    I’ve read that vapor quality on both of these vaporizers are fantastic. The battery life on the Solo is nice, but isn’t a game breaker. I want something that will be able to get 3-4 people really [good] without charging, but I also enjoy [other methods], so if it doesn’t last too long, then oh well.

    What are some major differences between the two vaporizers other than battery? I haven’t used either one, so I want the advice of someone who has used both.

    Thanks!!

    • In addition, what’s all this about screens? I don’t want to have to replace them often (or ever if possible).

      And which vape is more efficient? Does one use [material] at a higher pace than the other? With my MFLB I could get [strong effects] off of .15g. Will this carry over to these vaporizers?

      Once again, thank you!

      • Both vapes will require some occasional cleaning to keep them like-new, and screens will also occasionally need to be cleaned and/or replaced. Not often, but not never.

        They’re also roughly the same in regards to efficiency, but both will use slightly more material at a faster pace than the MFLB, which is one of the most efficient vapes.

    • Hey what’s up,

      In my opinion one of the main differences between these two is vapor quality.

      For portables, I consider the DaVinci about average in this area but the Solo is one of the best for taste and density.

      The other main way they differ is in the draw resistance – the Arizer has one of the hardest pulls and the DV is fairly free-flowing.

      • Could you give a comparison in vapor quality to the MFLB? I’ve never used any other vapes, so I don’t know how to compare them.

  32. I live in minnesota and the winters can be very unforgiving and i was wondering if you could tell me how bad the weather might effect my solo if i were to leave it in my car while at work or something and if you think the pax would work better under these conditions

    • Hey Nick I’m not positive how the cold weather would affect it but I would imagine it might take a little longer to heat up and it may or may not affect how long each charge lasts.

  33. Hey nick. This product is made in Canada meaning the the people who created are used to the cold. I live west coast Canada and we get some cold winters too. I leave my solo in the truck every day overnight and too. Still never have had a problem

  34. Hey man,
    Loved the review. Just wanted to ask some questions about durability over time. Should I expect the battery life to start to dwindle over time? Are the glass mouth pieces decently thick? In comparison of a volcano vape, how much of a drop off should i expect? And in today’s market does this portable vape still rank 2nd for you?

    Much love
    -J

    • Hey James,

      Battery life could possibly decrease over time but my guess would be not for many years, mine seems to still hold a charge for as long as it did when it was new over a year ago.

      The glass stems are pretty thick yes, so they withstand some abuse but could still break if dropped on a hard surface or crushed by accident.

      I still consider this one the second best portable I’ve reviewed as far as performance and build quality, but I don’t consider it “truly” portable like I do the Pax and MFLB, I don’t bring this one outside my home.

      In regards to asking how it compares to the Volcano, do you mean in terms of vapor production?

      Stay up!

        • Cool no doubt, out of the portables I’ve reviewed this model and the Pax both produce the most vapor, but it’s still a bit less than a good home unit like the Volcano.

  35. There are tricks to make the draw not quite as difficult … if you pull up just a tiny bit on the glass straw it will allow better airflow (without compromising the vaping), also I found that over a bit of time it naturally got a bit easier as the mount loosened up a bit. I’ve owned a lot of portable vapes over the years and this is definitely the best I’ve used (I’ve not tried the Pax yet though!). Very solid and very happy, unlike all the stuff from iolite that constantly breaks (6 units in < 3 years, the "new" one being the worst, it died in < 1 month).

  36. Awesome site and reviews. I have been an active arizer solo owner for a few years. As with all electronics, battery life decreases with time and usage. Appears to lose about 15% per year. Use with a foam coozy for stealth operation in a vehicle. You can also turn off the annoying beep. I rarely use my full size model anymore. I plan to buy another portable solo soon. Have to also mention that it really looks like me in Bud’s profile shot – too coincidental.

  37. Hey man,
    Thanks for the reviews helped me out a lot! I am deciding between the Solo and the no2. What one is easier to use and requires less cleaning?
    Any negatives about the solo?
    Thanks a lot you the man!

    Jordan

    • Sup Jordan,

      I’d say the Solo and the NO2 are fairly similar in terms of how easy they are to use and how much cleaning is involved.

      Where they mainly differ is vapor quality and draw resistance. The Solo produces better quality vapor but it’s harder to pull than the NO2.

      Any other questions let me know, stay up!

  38. I am a super light-weight and am interested in trying a vaporizor. My use is pretty much limited to an hour or two before bed. Traveling is not an issue for me. I take one or two small [draws] so I can calm my mind and actually get to sleep. I am usually not trying to get [strong effects], just nice and relaxed.

    To give you an idea of my usage, 9-11g of [material] usually last me a good 4 or 5 months with nightly use.

    I am trying to decide between this model and the PAX, but am definitly open to suggestions. Budget is a concern, but I would rather save for what will work for me than buy something I wont like.

    • Hey Jason not sure if you made a purchase yet but based on your usage routine I would recommend the Magic-Flight Launch Box as your best option.

      The Solo and Pax are great but they really work best when you pack at least 0.15-0.2g in the chamber (or more) and vape it all in one session (10+ draws at once).

      For taking one or two small draws at a time I think the MFLB shines, and it’s really efficient your material will probably last even longer than it does now.

      Let me know if you have any other ?’s

      Stay up!

  39. Whats up man, Just got my solo. Quick question. Are you suppose to heat this thing up with the little chamber cover on or off?

    • Hey what’s up Luis, I don’t think it matters too much either way but I usually heat it up with the cover off since it’s a rubber material, wouldn’t want it to overheat and risk melting.

  40. hey i just got a solo. i tried it frist at setting 6 and it was so harsh on my throat.
    the after vape was also charred. i tried it on 5 next time and i got that same harshness on inhale,but this time the crumbs were not overly brown.
    finally i tried it on 4 and even though the crumbs were not too brown it was still so harsh inhaling as if it were smoke,and there is an off taste to it for sure.
    i have been using the plenty for the last 8 months,and maybe im just spoiled by it. i know youve tried both so is there any harshness for you when using the solo compared to the plenty? and does the abv turn darker at 6 on the solo compared to 7 on the plenty for you? because it does for me,and my herb in some places was charred on 6 using the solo.
    im waiting for arizer to email me back about this

    • Hey yes 6 on the Solo is too much heat in my opinion, I normally set it at 4 or 5 for best results.

      It’s definitely not going to be as smooth or strong as the Plenty, that’s pretty much the trade-off you make with cordless compact vapes.

      • yes i have been experimenting with this,and what ive been doing is vaping at either 4 or 5 and i do not leave the stem in.
        i take a draw and then remove the stem afterwards and i find this to give much cleaner tasting draws without being as harsh.
        it seems to work more as a convection vape this way,and i notice if i leave the stem in there its a higher ratio of conduction vaping going on.
        i must say it is a night and day difference between this and the plenty in every way. its so funny because so many people seem to be getting the solo and think its great,but there does not seem to be a great number of people actually putting down the cash for the plenty. and to me they have no clue what they are missing. nothing ive tried so far comes close to the plenty when it comes to the potency of the vapor,and the clean smooth flavor of the vapor.

          • Hey bud i want to give an update on this.
            Since my last reply, ive figured out an even better method of avoiding that harshness. I simply turn the solo upside down,and poof. That takes care of it totally. This way it is pretty much being heated by convection method (hot air passing through). When you turn it right side up it heats conduction to a certain degree for that fact that some of the material is touching that hot herb chamber. that is the main issue with the harsh taste sometimes,and its what causes the after crumbs from looking too dark. When you turn it upside down the material does not touch the herb chamber and therefore clean convection style vaping!!!! i am totally satisfied with the solo using it this way,and i even like having the option to turn it right side up for the occasion when i use it with someone who is used to smoking. i let this girl [use it] at 7(410 F) right side up and she blows clouds as dense as from my plenty if not more. haha
            then i just pack my session seperately and set it at 5 (393 F) and then turn it upside down like a weirdo. but i love it!!!

  41. Hey! Nice page you got in here, REALLY helpful! I just ordered my Arizer Solo, and i wanted to know if you put any screens on it, i was reading and watching reviews and some people so it, but i want to know your opinion. Thanks!

    • Hey yes it’s not 100% necessary but if you can it helps keep it cleaner if you put a screen inside the chamber of the stem (prevents little pieces from traveling up stem and getting stuck on the sides)

  42. Hey Bud, thanks for your reviews! They are being a great help to me. I want to give me a christmas gift and i think that a vaporizer will be the perfect one!
    Right now I’m between 3 vapes (DaVinci Ascent, Pax and Solo) and I can not decide! The Solo looks like the nicest choice to me, because this vaporizer seems to me like the best portable vape when we’re considering vapor quality. But the draw resistence you described is not letting me buy this one.. So, I want you to answer me a couple of questions, please. With 0.15g how many draws does the solo let me do? An the Pax or the Ascent? Is there any difference?

    I’ve read that the Ascent is giving problems to a lot of users, do you have any information about that?

    Congratulations to your job, mate!

    • Hey Joseph,

      The Solo is good for home use and a packing that size will give you about 10 good draws in this vape as well as in the Pax, but the newer Firefly is also a good option you should look into because it has less draw resistance and produces high quality vapor.

      The Ascent is better when fully packed which is close to 0.5g, and I have heard of some users reporting issues here and there but mine still seems to be performing like it should.

  43. Hey thanks for the helpful videos. This is a more general question but do you think that there is a noticeable difference in the potency/quality of the vape between a portable vape and a desktop vape of equal price? I am planning on getting my first one to use with my buddies but only in the house so if there is a noticeable difference it seems like a desktop is a better choice and if not a portable would seem like the way to go, would you agree? (I posted this here because I have been planning on selecting the arizer solo since it seems like a quality device that doesn’t compromise a lot by being portable)

    • Great question and the answer is yes, I do find a noticeable difference between portable and desktop units.

      For strictly home use I would absolutely invest in a good desktop unit first, you’ll get better performance for the money.

      The Solo is good if you need cordless but a similar priced plug-in unit would be easier to draw from and would produce more vapor.

      From cheapest to most expensive I recommend: Hot Box, Da Buddha, Extreme-Q, Silver Surfer, Plenty, Volcano

  44. I bought this unit a little over a year ago (mostly from your recommendation) and have a couple of things to comment on. 1st off the the glass stems are quite breakable. You’re kidding yourself if you think that you’re never going to break yours. I’ve seen a couple of aftermarket wooden replacements, but I was never able to justify the $50 needed to order one. As you’ve noted on the stems, if you don’t use a screen (not included with the unit) the 4 small holes on the bottom of the glass tubes can and will get plugged up quite quickly. After a couple of draws the air flow holes would often clog, and require much more effort on your part to inhale. Cleaning the stems was a minor chore (15-20 minute acetone soak), but afterwards they always came out looking like new.

    The base of the unit is top notch, feels good in the hand and is overall pretty durable. It never took longer than 2 hours to go from a 0 to 100% charge and consistently gave me 4-6 good sessions before the battery was depleted. The heat it produced was even and the buttons nor the lights ever gave out over extended use.

    Thanks for doing what you’re doing.

  45. Just wanted to say that I have watched most of the videos on your site, and have found them to be very informative. Using your reviews as a guideline, I have purchased the MFLB and the Arizer Solo. I love them both, and the reviews you gave them are absolutely spot on. You do a great job giving the positives and negatives about the products that you review. Thank you for your work.

  46. Bad experiences with Solo. The plastic on the bottom cracked after 3 months. The battery stopped holding a charge at 6 months. The warranty forces the customer to pay a $15 shipping/handling fee to send it to an outsourced repair shop. Company is difficult to deal with. Buyer Beware!

  47. Hey bud, I’ve been going back and forth for months over what vape to get and finally decided to get the solo, seeing as how the updated version can be used while charging. However, I have a few questions that you can hopefully answer. What is a good amount of product to put in this vape? Should it be packed super tight or loosely? About how long can the battery last through continuous use? (I’ve seen lots of different amounts of time for it). I love your videos, I always look for your reviews on a vape before considering it. Cheers

      • Hey man sorry for the delay, I’d say the chamber holds approx 0.2g, use a medium-tight packing, and you should be able to get about 60-80 minutes of use on a full charge. Oh and you’ll probably get around 10 good draws from that amount.

  48. This is a good little vaporizer and it does the job really well. Good vapor quality, quick and easy to use, very low maintenance. You will likely want to clean the glass stems from time to time.

    However, and perhaps I am just unlucky, I have gone through two Solo’s in about 6 weeks worth of use. The first one crapped out after a little over a month and stopped heating. I had to send it back through warranty. A little over two weeks later, I have a new one and today, two weeks later, a piece near one of the screws by the base has just cracked right off after I gently set the Solo down on the counter. It had not been dropped prior, this piece just broke off from being handled gingerly. Also, I noticed the lights on the unit are also starting to flicker similar to the way they did before the first one conked out.

    So, the vapor quality is great but so far it has not lived up to the build quality, particularly for the price. I hate dealing with warranty and if it craps out again here, I’m just going to ask for my money back and try a different product.

  49. I have this vape and I love it. I don’t think the draw is bad at all, but maybe I’m just used to it.

    Does anyone have any opinions on this vape vs. the pax though? I think I might get a pax, looks much more portable

  50. Hi,
    Firstly, great site and great work. This is my first time getting a vaporiser and need advice on the best in-home vape. I want something which is a quality build, produces dense and good flavoured vapour. After much research I’ve shortlisted between the Da Buddha and the Arizer Solo. The drawbacks which I can see with the Solo are the hard drawback, somewhat fiddly and fragile glass stem.
    Between the two what would you recommend? If not these, anything better in the same price range?
    Many thanks for your help.
    cheers

    • Hey thanks for posting, I like and recommend both of those vapes so I think you’re good either way, most other people do also. If I was personally choosing between the two I think I might pick the Da Buddha because of the easier draw, and I do find I can get slightly denser/stronger vapor from it, but again they’re both very good vapes and pretty much the best options in the price range.

  51. Nice product, but I don’t understand companies that disrespect their customers by not answering their phone. If I have a problem or question, their is still no better customer service, than just simply answering the phone. Email tag is the lowest form of customer service.

  52. Hey buddy. I must thank you for all the detailed reviews and prompt responses to people in need. I really appreciate that.

    For someone who is not from the U.S. (I am from India), where vaping is not very popular, your website is like an oasis of information.

    Based on your recommendations, I ordered a solo. Planning to go totally smoke free.

    Solo for herbs and eGo-c to replace ciggs.

    Cheers mate and carry on the great work!

  53. Hello,

    I just want to say that the Arizer solo is AWESOME!!! I was very worried about putting this much money into a personal vape. I also own a Volcano so I’m not afraid to put money into something….as long as it works. This almost beats the volcano as far as taste and ease of use. You can get as little or as big of rips as you want. This is also a good vaporizer for 2 people, easy to pass, no buttons to hold down. I’m a pretty heavy Potpourri user and this thing blow’s my mind! The glass stem does move around a bit but it really is not a big deal (you can get more air if you pull it up off the heating element just a tiny bit) This seems very easy to clean and is an amazing product.

    Don’t waste your money on the PAX (hard to clean) lot’s of gimmicks not a lot of functionality.

  54. Hi Bud,great review
    For most of my vapes i grind in a 4 piece then use the MFLB finishing grinder as i find i get better vapour that way,do you think that fine a grind would be too fine for the solo? and a courser grind may be better?………thanks for your time,”stay up”…..Dave.

    • Hey Dave I do the same thing, but yes with the Solo if you’re using a stock stem without a screen your material may get through the holes and travel up the mouthpiece. I cut and fit a small screen inside my stem so that I could still grind super fine and use it.

      • Hi Bud,just a update,received my solo and i must say im very pleased,your review was the incentive to buy so thank you for that,only used it a couple of times with the stock stems but i found that if i grind in my 2 piece space case that works well without the need for a screen with very little making it into the stem.I was very surprised how evenly brown all the way through the ABV was without stirring,also that if i pulled just till i felt resistance that the vapour was very good for a portable and i think it tastes even better than my SSV!…….thanks again Dave.

  55. The Arizer Solo was my first vapourizer. I bought it about 4 months ago and I have found that it replaced my piece quite quickly as a means of portable and at home consumption. I transport it in an old cell phone box and keep the mouth piece in a sock. I ponder if the glass pieces are pyrex as they seem quite strong. [some text redacted] The draw is slow, but being young and in good shape, it just makes for a sloww and relaxed sesh. I highly recommend it as it is just a solid and easy to use piece, with a plug in charger. It may not be a pocket sized unit, but for one that carries a backpack or purse or any other bag it is a no brainer.

  56. Would u choose the ariser the pax or the pinnicle pro ?
    Please let me know im so confused on which one to buy!!!?

    • Hey I’m not a big fan of the Pinnacle Pro but I like and recommend the Solo for cordless use at home and the Pax for true portable use on-the-go.

  57. Hi Bud,

    great reviews and very informative website.
    Could you please let me know how much “material” (in grams) its chamber needs for a full session?
    How is its chamber size when compared to to the firefly, the no.2 Vampir and the MFLB?
    I can see its needs less material than the Ascent and the Pax, but not for the two models mentioned above.

    I am looking for something which requires not too much filling per session but still vaporizes at high quality. So far the Arizer solo and the Firefly seem to be my best options, but the Vapir seem to not be a bad option too. What are your thoughts?

    Looking forward to your expert opinion as I cant wait buying one!!!!
    Once again, great website and super useful info!

    Looking forward to your reply!

    • Hey thanks the herb chamber for the Solo is a little smaller than average and can handle between about 0.1-0.25g, which is roughly the same as the Firefly and MFLB.

      The NO2, Pax and Ascent can all hold more material, about 0.5g, 0.35g and 0.5g respectively.

      If you’re looking to vape very small amounts of material at a time I would probably go with the MFLB, Firefly or Solo.

      Overall though I like them all!

  58. Hi Bud,

    great response! Thank you.
    Glad to hear that Solo, Firefly and MFLB are all for vaping similar amounts of material.
    I do love the firefly’s look and feel and from what you say its the one producing the best vapor out of the lot.

    Most likely I ll go for it, although in my eyes, its a very close match with the Solo. Will keep you posted with my final verdict!
    Thanks a bunch. Keep it real!

  59. Hey vapecritic great review. I really think that you should buy a new model of the arizer solo. The new improved airflow is great and being able to charge it while in use is cool too.

  60. Would you recommend this over the Extreme Q? I’m not so much looking for portability as just a great overall first buy

    Also, how does the draw on this compare to the Iolite? I found the pull on that wasn’t exactly great, although that may have been the particular piece.

  61. DUDE, this vape is the real deal. I was skeptical because of the price but let me tell you, it is worth every penny. The taste is up there with a volcano. The only downside I can think of is that during the loading process some of your flower may fall loosely into the heating chamber, however i found that if you turn the arizer upside down during the process it is tremendously easier. Bud, thanks for the awesome videos man keep at it

  62. Hi, first of all thank you for all the great reviews. I’ve been watching most of them. I think I’m going to get the Arizer Solo as my first vaporizer as I’ve heard it’s very versatile and produces good quality vape.

    However, I would like to know if the vape from portables is considerably more harsh or if there’s just a slight difference in this regard, compared to the desktop vaporizers. At first I was decided to buy a Volcano, but I gave it a second thought and I vape a lot more frequently with friends than at home alone so I think a portable would suit me best. Nonetheless I don’t like very harsh tokes like the ones you get out of a bong and I’ve heard balloon vaporizers are smoother and not so agressive on your throat.

    Is there a big difference? How much difference is there between the Arizer Solo and the Da vinci Ascent in terms of vape quality and durability?
