This week on Weed Geek, we’re reviewing one of our favorite portable vapes – the Arizer Solo. We’ve only had this piece for a few weeks, but so far it’s stood up to our usual higher-than-frequent use without giving us any problems. That alone earns our stamp of approval.
Best of all, one very committed blunt smoker agreed to give it a try & even he figured it out with just a minute or two of explanation. Sturdy, simple & reliable – that’s exactly what we’re looking for in a good vape around WG Central.
Out of the box, you will get 1 vaping unit, 1 wall charger, 2 glass straws (1 straight & 1 curved) and a cleaning brush. You’ll also get a short, bowl-like piece of glass they pass off as an incense burner, but don’t try to use it to vape your herb – that looked a little dangerous to us because the glass gets a somewhat hot near the vaping unit even though everything else is only warm to the touch. There’s your warning.
To use the Arizer Solo, all you have to do is charge up the battery (a single charge lasts for several sessions, so no worries there), pack the bottom of the glass straw with finely ground herb, insert the straw into the top of the unit, push both buttons to turn it on, wait for the battery check to finish, set the temperature by pushing the up button to the desired level (go with 5 or 6), and wait about 2 minutes for it heat up. Then, you’re ready for a nice, smooth, flavorful vape.
Now, for the things we weren’t so sure about. The Arizer Solo is billed as a portable desktop vape that gives you the power of a bigger, stationary unit with the convenience of being able to move around. We agree to a certain extent. If you want to walk around your home or yard, you’re good to go. But, sticking that glass straw in your pocket or packing it up for a trip might not be a smart idea.
Next, the herb gets packed in the bottom of the glass straws that come with the Arizer Solo rather than in the unit itself. Some of our new vapers didn’t pack the material tight enough & they had a few little flakes come up through the vent holes in the tube when they inhaled. With the Arizer, you should grind your herb very fine then pack it tight for the best experience. It won’t take you long to figure that part out now that you know what to do.
Finally, true weed geeks might not like the fact that the Arizer Solo doesn’t let you set an exact temperature, but we found that it still worked pretty well even without the degree by degree tweaking some like to do. If you can’t live without a precise heat setting, this is not the vape for you.
