Compatibility: The Arizer Air 2 is only compatible with dry herb but it has a special dish that allows it to be used as an aromatherapy diffuser.
Replacements for all the various components of the Air 2 are available from the Arizer website. There are some different components too, like a curved mouthpiece that makes handheld vaping a little easier. If you want even cleaner, cooler vapor, then you can get an attachment to connect a water bubbler to the Air 2. Don’t forget to use the Arizer coupon code whenever you buy anything.
Design & Features
The Air 2 has a slim cylindrical shape that feels great to hold, the buttons are easily accessible and attaching the mouthpiece is simple as well. The Air 2 is listed as a portable, but it’s a little too big to shove into your pocket. At nearly five inches, it’s even taller than its big brother, the portable unfriendly Arizer Solo 2, though it is significantly slimmer. However, if you want a true portable, then you should get the Arizer Go instead.
If you want to take it with you, then you need a large purse, backpack, or the included carrying case. The latter includes some handy compartments for storing the mouthpiece and an extra 18650 battery. That extra battery could be necessary because the Air 2 has a removable battery, which is always a plus. In terms of looks, the Air 2 stands out for its shape but is otherwise kind of plain in general.
The standout feature of the Air 2—and of all the Arizer vaporizers—is the borosilicate glass mouthpiece. It provides a fool-proof method of loading the herb and it helps to keep the vapor cool because of its length. It also keeps the vapor pure since the neutral material does not affect the flavor of the vapor in any way.
Plus it lowers the draw resistance, so inhaling is effortless. The biggest negative is that it limits portability while it is attached to the rest of the vaporizer. So you need to carry the two pieces separately if you want to take the Air 2 with you wherever you go.
How to use
- Power up the Air 2 by holding down the power button for 3 seconds.
- Select the temperature using the up and down arrows.
- Place the base of the mouthpiece into your herb, remove it and tap the packed herb slightly to create a slight gap between the herb and the opening of the base.
- Place the mouthpiece into the oven and then inhale the vapor.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The Air 2 is a very low maintenance device so you won’t need to spend much of your time cleaning it. When you do you need to clean it, all you have to do is soak the mouthpiece in isopropyl alcohol for a few hours, and then rinse it out with hot water and you’re done. Be sure to clean the Air 2 after a session while the remnants are still warm, if you let them cool down and dry, then the mouthpiece will become much harder to clean.
Performance & Vapor Quality
The Air 2 takes a good while to heat up, well over a minute in fact, which is on the long side for a weed vaporizer. However, it does stay cool to the touch while it’s in use. Airflow is also very good and allows you to take huge, lung-filling draws or small, dainty sips.
Once again, the glass mouthpiece is the star because the vapor it delivers is crisp, cool, and flavorful. Since there are no impurities in the airpath you get the full flavor notes of the herb every time. The Air 2 has a wide temperature range of 122°F – 428° and I preferred to stick to the 350°F to 390°F range since that’s where I got the best flavor.
This vape doesn’t produce huge clouds, but that’s okay since it’s great for discretion if you are vaping outdoors. As mentioned earlier, airflow resistance is low, so it’s easy to enjoy the delicious vapor.
The replaceable 18650 battery has a 3200 mAh capacity and lasts for about 65 to 80 minutes, which is good. However, it takes about two hours to recharge, which is not so good. Fortunately, there are ways to make that wait more bearable. For one, pass-through charging is available, so you can keep vaping while the Air 2 recharges. Better yet is the fact that you can just swap the dead battery out for a new one, so you never need to stop vaping for long.
