Arizer Solo 2 Size Comparison to Other Top Portable Vaporizers
The Arizer 2 Solo is a bit smaller than the first model but having said that it is still a pretty large portable device. By no means is it as compact as the PAX 3, Firefly 2, or DaVinci IQ. It is actually more comparable in size to the new Hydrology 9 water vaporizer. The larger size can be attributed to the powerful battery that the Arizer Solo 2 includes.
In the Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer Package
In the box when you get your Arizer Solo 2 you will find a package of lavender which you use with the aroma cup and can use the device for enhancing a rooms smell and also for aromatherapy purposes. Also in the box you will find a package of screens that you will want to use if you don't want to get any material shooting into your mouth. The Arizer Solo 2 comes with 2 different size mouthpieces, a shorter one and a longer one. The longer mouthpiece gives the vapor a bit more time to cool down before entering your mouth. When ordering the Arizer Solo 2 you are able to choose your plug style, the options available are Australia, Europe, North American and United Kingdom. In the package you get some stem caps and a carrying case for the device and its accessories.
Loading the Arizer 2 Solo
To load the Arizer 2 Solo you can simply grab one of your stems (mouthpieces) and like you would with a one hitter just twist it into some ground up herb. You don't necassarily need to grind up your herb with the Arizer Solo 2, you can actually just stick a nug in it and vape away. But what grinding your herb will do is help to produce more vapor as its looser and more surface area of your herb is getting heated. If you stick a full nug in and vape that way you will get a bit more flavor.
Starting and Using the Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer
To power on the Arizer 2 Solo you will need to hold down the top side of the ring button and the center button at the same time. You will see a count down for the length of time you need to hold these two buttons for (3 seconds). One the countdown reaches 0 the device will display hello with a happy face letting you know that it has turned on successfully.
Once the Arizer 2 Solo is on you can adjust the temperature by tapping or holding the upper side and lower side of the ring button around the power button. Holding the ring button down will jump through the temperature faster while tapping it will allow you to increase and decrease the temperature by single digits. When you have chosen your desired temperature, the device will be working to reach that temperature, it may take about a minute to reach your desired temperature when starting from the off position or 20 to 30 seconds if you are changing it while on. To start vaping you just need to place the mouthpiece into the oven slot and begin to inhale. You are able to set the automatic shut off time to a longer or shorter default setting, the factory default is set to 10 minutes. You can also power the Arizer Solo 2 off be holding the center button for 3 seconds.
Arizer 2 Solo Draw Resistant
The mouthpiece stems that work with the Arizer 2 Solo are pretty wide, its like your vaping through the big slurpee straws you'd get at 7 eleven. The larger airflow mouthpiece means you can get big hits, once your material starts to get a bit warmer and starts to heat up your draws will get easier to pull. The draw resistance in comparison to the Arizer original is much improved and feel more natural with this unit.
Arizer 2 Solo Cleaning and Maintenance
The Arizer 2 Solo is a very easy device to maintain, because your herb simply sits in the mouthpiece the device doesn't really get dirty at all. The most that would happen is a few remnants of your herb land in the oven and you just tip the unit upside down and tap it out. To clean the stems (mouthpiece) you can rinse them off or your best option is to use isopropyl alcohol.
Arizer 2 Solo Battery
The Arizer Solo 2 has a big built in battery that lasts a long time. One of the most praised features of the Arizer Solo original was the strong battery that it supported. The Arizer Solo 2 has made improvements on an already great feature. You are able to get upwards of 200 minutes of use from the Arizer which equals 20 ten minutes sessions. The time it takes to charge the Solo 2 is a bit longer than your typical portable vaporizer but for the length of time it will last once fully charged is worth the wait. As mentioned earlier the Arizer cannot be charged via USB and must use a wall type outlet.
