The original Arizer Solo made waves by offering unmatched portability and efficiency. Now, Arizer is back with the Solo II – their most powerful and portable vaporizer yet.
How does the Solo II stack up against the competition? And how does it compare to the original?
What Makes the Solo II Better Than the Competition?
High Battery Life and Performance
Portability is great, but when you’re constantly recharging your vaporizer, it can be hassle. The original Solo was known for its efficient battery, which made it possible to actually enjoy vaping on-the-go.
The Solo II takes things a step further by offering an even more efficient battery.
- Up to 20 uses per charge
- 3-hour battery life
You’d be hard-pressed to find another portable vaporizer that offers this level of battery efficiency. And if you happen to run out of juice in the middle of a session, you can use this vaporizer while it’s plugged in.
The great thing about this vaporizer is that the battery efficiency doesn’t take away from its power.
The Solo II heats up in less than 30 seconds. That means you can start vaping in less than a minute after loading it up.
The Solo II offers unmatched airflow and efficiency for a smooth draw and huge clouds.
Boro-Silicate Glass for Pure Vapor. Open Airflow for a Better Experience
The materials used on the vapor path affect the quality and the taste of the vapor. Plastic and even ceramic can sometimes leave a weird taste.
The Solo II is made with medical-grade boro-silicate glass for pure, smooth flavor every time.
The vapor path is made entirely of glass, so you enjoy crisp vapor. Unlike plastic, glass doesn’t hold onto flavors and other particles that affect the flavor of the vapor.
The original Solo had a pretty restrictive airflow. It’s true that most vaporizers restrict the airflow somewhat, but the original Solo was a little more restrictive than others.
The Solo II has recessed heat jets that look like dimples in the bowl. These are what increase the airflow. You’ll notice a difference right away.
Simple Design. Easy Maintenance
Maintenance can be a pain with some portable vaporizers. Many models have unremovable parts, which makes it hard to clean and maintain the unit.
The Solo II has removable parts for easy delivery, dosage and maintenance.
Custom Settings for a Personalized Experience
Arizer puts you in the driver’s seat by offering a slew of custom settings for each session.
The Solo II offers the following controls:
- Temperature Control
- Screen Brightness
- Heat Indicator
- Delay On & Automatic Shutoff
- Audio Adjustment
- Battery Level
Unlike with some portable vaporizers, the Solo II offers precise temperature controls that are adjustable in 1-degree increments.
Temperatures range from 122F to 428F.
You also have the option to adjust the auto-shutoff timer from 5-15 minutes. The volume of the audible beep can be adjusted to your preference. The screen brightness can be adjusted, too, for those situations when you want to be a little stealthier.
You can even change the way the vaporizer turns on by adjusting the length of press required to 4, 6 or 8 seconds.
Arizer doesn’t force you to use clunky apps. There are no gimmicks with this vaporizer. Just pure, smooth clouds.
Portability is the name of the game with the Solo II. The ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use, and the compact size makes it easy to vape anywhere you go.
You can even pre-load the glass aroma tubes, so you’re always ready to go no matter where your travels take you.
The Solo II has a rounder, more comfortable shape than the original. It has a slimmer profile, too, which makes it easier to take on-the-go.
While compact and slim, the Solo II is still a little too big for pocket-carrying. With that said, the unit comes with a belt-clip carrying case, which makes it really easy to discreetly take your gear with you.
The unit is the same height and width as the original Solo, but Arizer moved the charging port so the unit can be recharged while standing upright.
Here are the dimensions of the unit:
- Height: 4.5″
- Depth: 1.38″ at top
- Depth: 1.19″ at bottom
- Width: 1.75″
- Weight: 7.4 oz.
The Solo II comes with a two-year warranty on defects and workmanship, a one-year warranty on the battery, and a lifetime warranty on the unit’s heating element.
What Does the Solo II Include?
- Solo II Multi-Purpose Micro-Heater
- Glass Aroma Dish
- Charger/Power Adapter
- 2 Glass Aroma Tubes (90mm; 110mm)

- Stainless Steel Stirring Tool

How to Use the Solo II
One of the primary differences between the original Solo and the Solo II is the user interface.
With the Solo II, an LED display replaces the 7 temperature lights. There are also navigation buttons underneath the display. The middle “m” button opens the menu, which lets you access all of the great features listed above.
To turn the unit on, simply hold down the “m” button for however long you set the timer (4, 6 or 8 seconds). Six seconds is the default.
Once the unit is on, the display will take you right to the temperature selection screen where you can adjust the temperature to your liking.
Loading the unit is just like loading any other Arizer vaporizer. Take the glass aroma tube and fill the bottom of the dish with your herb. Load the tube into the heating chamber, turn on the unit, and start vaping.
The Solo II offers unmatched battery life, high performance and a simple interface that makes vaping on-the-go even more enjoyable.
