Arizer Solo 2
ARIZER SOLO 2 VAPORIZER?
?The updated version of the?Arizer Solo, the 2 offers 3 hours of continuous use on one charge and a superior vaping experience for a relatively affordable price. The all-glass vapor pathway is featured here and adds to the already excellent vapor quality. This is the next level of vape from Arizer, improving on the already excellent Solo, the Solo 2 has a large, clear LED screen instead of the 7 LED indicator lights on the Solo. This screen makes all the difference, it shows you the temperature and battery status in a flash, and lets you make changes to the temperature settings, startup time, brightness and volume really easily. It¡¯s clear and intuitive, obviously Arizer have taken a good look at the competition and incorporated what is successful about them.

EASE OF USE
Turning the machine on, you get the now familiar Solo bleep after holding down the up and menu buttons for 6 seconds and a nice little greeting. It¡¯s a cheerful device, that¡¯s for sure. It heats up to the desired temperature in less than 30 seconds, head and shoulders above some of the competition. This is one of the major selling points of the Solo 2, it is fast and efficient.
The temperature range is between 50 degrees Celsius and 220 degrees Celsius, giving you the range to vape just about anything. Especially good for solids at high temperature, the Solo 2 will give you the precision and control of a bigger unit while being tiny enough to fit in your pocket. You can set your session time to between 5 and 15 minutes, so it¡¯ll blaze away and then shut down by itself once you¡¯ve had your fill of delicious vapor.
That¡¯s the next point about the Solo 2, the vapor quality. It¡¯s really, really good. You get a nice, cool pull and very little resistance, though it is still not as frictionless as the major rival, the Crafty. For such a tiny device, this is mightily impressive. The thick clouds of extremely tasty vapor will satisfy any serious connoisseur of vapor. Again, this quality vape from such a small device is pretty rare. Arizer say it¡¯s because of the whole-glass pathway and we¡¯re inclined to agree, it¡¯s very cool and we never encountered bits and flakes coming up the tube when we were using it. The wide variety of temperatures available mean you can have tastier vapor at low temperatures or thicker vapor and slightly less taste at higher temps. At no point did we encounter harshness.
In terms of build quality, Arizer have pulled it off again: this is a really well made and designed machine. The original Solo built up quite a reputation for being extremely durable and reliable, and while we couldn¡¯t test it for long enough to tell you about how long it will last, it had the same feel and satisfying weight (it¡¯s actually slightly less weighty than the original) as the Solo. This bodes well for customers, it looks to be a machine that will last.
