Yep, the Arizer is going up against itself again. You probably didn’t expect it after the Air 2 vs Solo 2 comparison but the Arizer Go (Review | Buy) has stepped up to take on all comers, including its two big brothers, the Arizer Air 2 (Review | Buy) and the Arizer Solo 2 (Review | Buy).
The ArGo is the smallest of the three but don’t let that fool you, this portable Dry Herb Vaporizer has all the features of it’s two heavyweight siblings. That’s enough a tease, it’s time for the full reveal in the Arizer Go vs Arizer Air 2 vs Arizer Solo 2 comparison!
Arizer Go vs Arizer Air 2 vs Arizer Solo 2: Design and Features
- The Arizer Go is the most portable of the three. It is small enough to fit in any pocket and the handy pop top feature protects the glass mouthpiece at the push of a button.
- The Arizer Air 2 is only portable if you use the included carrying case. It can hold the mouthpiece separately, otherwise it sticks out too far for you to comfortably carry the Air 2 around
- The Solo 2 is the least portable, though it delivers the best stay-at-home vaping experience—thanks to the large battery which results in superb vapor quality.
Oven and Heating
- Oven size for ArGo = 0.15 grams = ~10-13 hits
- Oven size for Air 2 and Solo 2 = 0.2 grams = ~12-15 hits
- All three dry herb vapes use a convection heating system. With this system, the herb doesn’t come in direct contact with the heating surface to produce the vapor. Instead heated air passes through the herb to produce the vapor.
