If I could only choose one adjective to describe the Solo 2- that word would be “reliable”. No gadgets, apps, or gimmicks- the device has a simple and functional design with a responsive circular menu pad and an OLED display that shows the temperature setting and battery level. Its simple design might be bland for some users’ tastes – but it really does contribute to the overall ease of use of the Solo 2 (visit store).
Performance-wise, the Solo 2 heats quickly and is one of the few vapes that remain cool even after extended use. Thanks to the lengthy glass mouthpiece, the resulting vapor is smooth, cool, and a lot denser than expected especially at higher temperatures. This vapor quality is consistent no matter how many times you’ve used the device and that’s pretty impressive considering its mid-tier price tag. If you’re a real vapor and flavor fiend, then this is the best portable vaporizer to get.
The inclusion of 3 borosilicate glass stems allows you to tweak your experience quite a bit on the Solo 2. You get a curved mouthpiece, tipped aroma tube, and a frosted glass tube (that may be used to attach the Solo 2 to a water pipe). There are also a multitude of other mouthpieces and accessories you can purchase, including the bent glass mouthpiece, which is probably the best one to use the Solo 2.
Loading this device is a breeze – simply place the end of the mouthpiece onto the herb and then stick it into the oven, quick, easy, and mess-free. The Solo 2 also has the easiest cleaning of any vape on this list and requires basically zero maintenance.
