Arizer is a Canadian company based out of Kitchener, Ontario. Arizer is well known for their quality devices, most notably the Arizer Solo.
Arizer Pricing & Selection:
Arizer has many units in different pricepoints. The Solo can be had for around $150 while the more streamlined Air comes in at $200. The also carry a selection of desktop models that top out at around $250.
Unique to Arizer:
Arizer strives for performance first and style second. This is seen very clearly in the evolution from the Solo to the Air. Both units have a porche like performance, the Air is the only one that looks that way however. The secret to Arizer’s successes is simplicity. Their vaporizers are essentially portable heaters with a glass mouthpiece. The Solo was somewhat industrial looking; a thick black cylinder with a bank of LEDS and a glass stem, but it preformed soooo well. It was one of the most recommended starter vapes from 2012 – 2014. The Solo however had a few short comings…. It was a little bulky, the stems were just a tad too long and there was no way to change the battery once it started loosing its charge capacity. The Air addresses all of those shortcomings and then some!!
The Air used the Solo as a blueprint…. Solid industrial construction but this time in a much more streamlined device. Where the Solo resembled a toilet paper tube the Air is like a really thick marker and they did a really good job of shortening the stems without changing the smoothness of the vapor! The big improvement though is the battery… instead of a built in battery that you can’t get at, the Air is powered by a removable and replaceable 18650 battery!
Arizer Air Experience:
Performance wise, the Air rocks! This is a hybrid conduction / convection vaporizer. You pack the end of the glass stem and insert it into the oven. There is very little if any contact made between your material and the oven, rather when you inhale you draw hot air through your material causing the vaporization. The sides of the glass stem do heat up and there is an element of conduction there but a good portion of what is going on is convection.
I’m also a big fan of the accessories the Air comes with! A handy belt loop, extra stems and stem caps make this one of the more portable, portables if you catch my drift!
