Arizer ArGo Design

Through the power of sorcery—or smart design—Arizer somehow managed to squeeze all their signature design elements into the palm-sized ArGo. The distinctive glass mouthpiece is there and works just like it does in the ArGo’s big brothers, the Air 2 and Solo 2. You dip it into the herb to fill it up (not too tightly) and then pop it into the vaporizer. Simple.

However, the ArGo has one cool trick it’s bulkier siblings don’t. The top of the vaporizer can pop up to protect the mouthpiece so that it’s flush against the ArGo’s body. Once the mouthpiece is inserted, press the button on the back of the ArGo to extend the top so that the mouthpiece sits as snug as a bug in a rug. When you’re ready to vape, just push the top down and voila! The mouthpiece is revealed.

The clear OLED screen and precise temperature controls are there too, as is the convenience of an interchangeable 18650 battery. You can carry a spare and just swap ‘n’ go when one dies. There’s nothing about this dry herb vape that isn’t portable friendly.

How to Use the Arizer ArGo

The Arizer ArGo is simple enough to use with just one hand, not that I recommend it but the option is there. Here’s how you get started:

  1. Load the mouthpiece by dipping the end of it in your herb supply, gently tap it to loosen the herb so that air can pass through.
  2. Place the weed-filled end into the ArGo and press down the top of the device so that the mouthpiece is exposed.
  3. Power up the device by holding down the plus and menu buttons simultaneously.
  4. Use the plus and minus buttons to select the desired temperature.
  5. The ArGo will beep twice once the selected temperature is reached, inhale from the mouthpiece for vaping satisfaction.

The ArGo has custom session settings so you have different options for how you want each session to go. You can also adjust the temperature while you’re vaping if you want further customization.

Arizer ArGo Performance and Vapor Quality

If you want dense, flavorful vapor in a portable device then you want the Arizer ArGo. The vapor quality is pretty exceptional, some of the best I’ve had in a vaporizer of any size. I found that the optimal temperature range is between 390°F and 400°F, not one degree over or under. You’ll thank me when you try it for yourself.

As with the Air 2 and Solo 2, the glass mouthpiece keeps the vapor crisp and cool throughout each session. Plus the borosilicate glass doesn’t affect the flavor of the herb the way other materials might.

All these features compressed into a smaller device does have one drawback, the ArGo can get hot when you use it. This is hardly a dealbreaker, it just means that you’ll have to put it down for a minute or two occasionally. They’ll be the hardest minute or two of your life, but you’ll live.

Arizer ArGo VS Similar Vapes

Note that the Air 2 and Solo 2 have compatible stems that the smaller ArGo can’t use, in case you were wondering. Also, all three vapes support pass through charging.

Arizer ArGo Review: Final Thoughts

The Arizer ArGo ($269.95 from Vape-Smart, coupon code TVG10 provides a 10% discount) is the smallest of the Arizers but it’s no runt. The Air 2 and Solo 2 each have well-earned reputations for performance and vapor quality and the ArGo is set to match—or exceed—them both.

This vaporizer is perfect for anyone who enjoys dry herb, whether they vape at home or on the go. It’s a seriously low maintenance weed vape so if you don’t like cleaning, this is the vape for you, you just need to soak the mouthpieces in 90% or purer isopropyl alcohol occasionally.

The Arizer Go, or ArGo (get it now?) is good enough to match any of the Best Dry Herb Vaporizers available. It has the innovative features and high quality you’ve come to expect from Arizer so if you’re ready to try one of the best weed vapes on the market, the Arizer ArGo is waiting for you. Thanks for reading my Arizer ArGo review, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

5 Comments
  1. I was nervous. while reading the specifications of arizer products most just say manufactured in Canada. however the arizer go and arizer air 2 both say canada Japan and China.

    I currently own the arizer air and have been very happy. I feel like the idea of the “argo” would be a great thing but very worried about China and Japan being involved.
    I originally went for arizer because it was reasonably priced and also made completely in Canada.
    what parts are made in China or Japan? is it something I should be concerned about?

  2. Do not buy this if you have sensitive hands to heat…It gets crazy hot at high temps and it will become uncomfortable on your hand when touching near the vent.

  3. While the ArGo certainly has some nice features, I’ve gone through two units in the past 4 months due to the fact the the led screen burnt out on both after minimal use. When I contacted Arizer to discuss the issue, they admitted that the screens were prone to crap out if you happen to inadvertently ‘tip the unit over;’ seriously… a $300+ vaporizer that quits working after being tipped over? That’s what I call a poor quality product.

    That noted, if I was willing to abide by their ridiculous warranty procedures (see the actual email from Arizer below)…including paying for shipping and being without the vaporizer for some time..they would ‘get my unit up and running’ (that is until it is inadvertently tipped over again). Are you kidding me? Does this company operate out of the trunk of a car?

    Email from Arizer customer support:

    “Thank you for your information.

    We will get your unit up and running under the warranty if you can send it in to us. Shipping costs are not covered under warranty but I would like to help you out and have waived the cost of return shipping so you will only need to pay the Post Office’s fee to send the unit in.

    – Please let us know when you have shipped your parcel in to us so we are expecting your unit coming in.

    Once your parcel has been received your unit will be repaired or replaced as necessary within 1 – 3 business days and returned to…”

    Folks, do your research before shelling out your hard earned coin on an ArGo. Arizer has a big design flaw in this one…they know it…and their customer service is some of the worst I have personally encountered in quite some time.

    • Hi KB, thanks for writing this and letting us + other users know about these issues.
      Based on my previous experience with Arizer- I’m very surprised. I’ve been using the Solo 1, and now the Solo 2, every day for years and never had a single issue with it. The Solo is made from high-quality materials.

      My ArGo still works good, but it has very “low mileage” as I mostly use the Solo.

      Anyways, thanks for the feedback once again, and I hope that the replacement (or fixed unit) that they send you works better- for a long time!

  4. My pleasure. This is my first experience w Airizer (and my last). As noted, the ArGo is a great concept…but a known buggy design (see email excerpt from Arizer below where they admit to knwowing about the design flaw). Glad to hear your’s is still working well…be careful not to ‘tip it over.’

    Hello,

    Thank you for your email.

    We are sorry to hear you have experienced this issue with your unit. We have never heard of any of our LCD screens just burning out. We have however heard of them stop working after being accidentally dropped or knocked over.

    To your knowledge has the unit ever been dropped or knocked over? Please let us know.

    Best Regards,
