Most vaporists are probably familar with the names V-Tower and Extreme-Q. These vaporizers that are produced by Canadian manufacturer Arizer Tech are known for their quality and value.
However, both of these vapes are electric and require a cable to function. With portability becoming increasingly important for both recreational and medical cannabis users, Arizer Tech recently released their first portable vaporizer, the Arizer Solo.
The Arizer Solo is a portable vaporizer powered by a built-in lithium battery that provides juice for up to 3 hours of constant vaporizing. In addition, the temperature can be set to any of the 7 preset temperatures - a great feature as different cannabinoids are released at temperatures that differ. In a hurry? Not a problem, the Solo heats-up in less than 3 minutes!
Where other portable vaporizers with a built-in battery can be somewhat bulky and are often aesthetically not very pleasing, the Arizer Solo stands out here. In an upright position it measures about the size of a small can of soda. It has a sturdy and durable feel to it and the unit itself - the glass mouthpiece excluded - looks like it can take a beating. Speaking of the glass mouthpiece (or 'stem'): I believe the big, tasty hits (the best I've experienced from a portable so far) can be attributed to the use of glass on this crucial part. No nasty plastic smells or taste, just pure and thick vapor!
Are there no drawbacks at all ? In my opinion there’s only one small thing that could be improved, and this is the fact that the Solo cannot be used when charging. There’s an AC adapter separately available, but it would be better if it came included.
All in all, I believe the Solo has truly raised the bar for portable vaporizing. Excellent battery life, smooth, thick and tasty vapor and great portability make this vaporizer a true winner.
