Compatibility: The Arizer Go is only compatible with dry herb.
Like many premium and mid-tier portable vaporizers, the ArGo has an optional water pipe attachment that can be purchased separately. This allows users to connect their own water pipe to the ArGo in lieu of the standard mouthpiece, which helps to cool down the vapor even more. Since the ArGo uses a removable battery, there are storage options for extra batteries, so you always have another one standing by. You can get those accessories from the Arizer store and make sure to use the Arizer coupon code when you go shopping.
Design and Features
The Arizer Go, or ArGo, is a handsome and compact vaporizer that packs a lot of great features into a tight little package. It has a borosilicate glass mouthpiece, which is rare for portable vapes, but is present on the ArGo’s larger siblings, the Air 2 and Solo 2. It serves the same function on the ArGo as it does on those larger vapes, in that it makes herb loading extremely easy and keeps the vapor pure and cool because the glass is a neutral material. Also, you can preload them with herb and store them using the included stem caps to seal off the filling end, which provides some extra convenience.
Any worries that the mouthpiece will end up getting dirty or broken are quashed thanks to the pop top design of the ArGo. The top of it pops up to completely enclose the mouthpiece after pressing a button on the back of the device. You just push the top down again when you’re ready to vape. The other design features are more standard, but still pretty good. It has a clear OLED screen that keeps you informed about the temperature and battery level. The buttons that control the temperature and give you good feedback when pressed. Finishing things up, the two-tone black finish looks good in an understated kind of way.
The ArGo is under four inches tall whether the top is popped or not, so there aren’t any doubts about its pocket friendliness. And like I mentioned earlier, that pop top protects the glass mouthpiece from any and all hazards, which increases its portability even more.
The pop up top is the standout feature of the ArGo because it allows the device to maintain the signature Arizer glass tube while adding a level of portability that the other Arizer vaporizers lack. Whether it is the best Arizer vape or not is a matter of opinion, but it is easily the most practical one.

How to Use
- Load the mouthpiece by dipping the end of it into your herb. Gently tap it to loosen the herb so that air can pass through.
- Place the weed-filled end into the ArGo and then press down the top of the device so that the mouthpiece is exposed.
- Hold down the plus and menu buttons simultaneously to power up the device.
- Use the plus and minus buttons to select the desired temperature.
- The ArGo will beep twice once heating is completed, at which point you can inhale from the mouthpiece.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Much like its older siblings, the ArGo is a pretty low maintenance vape. Since you load it using the mouthpiece, there isn’t a herb chamber that you need to worry about cleaning. You only need to clean the mouthpiece every few uses. You can do that by using a q-tip to wipe the inner surface of the mouthpiece. For more thorough cleaning, you can dip the q-tip in isopropyl alcohol before you start. Try to clean the mouthpiece while it’s still warm, if you wait too long, the resin will cool and harden, making it much tougher to clean.
Performance and Vapor Quality
The ArGo takes about a minute to heat up, which is on the long side for portable vapes since most take about half that time to get to temperature. It also gets a little warm to the touch after it has been on for a while, which can be pretty inconvenient.
The ArGo delivers excellent vapor thanks to its convection/conduction heating system and glass mouthpiece. I found that I got the best vapor in the 360°F to 400°F temperature ranges, any lower and the flavor wasn’t strong enough, any higher and the vapor started to get harsh and uncomfortable. The higher temperatures produce denser vapor though, so they are the choice for any cloud chasers out there. If you want the best vaping experience, then make sure to keep the temperature in the Goldilocks zone and you’ll be just fine.
The vapor does get a little warmer in the Argo than it does in the other Arizer vapes because its glass mouthpiece is understandably shorter. It never feels uncomfortable, but if you’re used to those other vapes, then you might be surprised. However, compared to other portable weed vapes, it’s not too bad.
Draw resistance is pretty low as long as you keep the mouthpiece and its screen clean. If you slack off on cleaning, then the draw resistance will keep getting higher, so make sure to clean your ArGo as soon as it starts to get dirty.
The ArGo’s battery lasts for about ninety minutes, which is the average for most portable vaporizers. It takes about three and a half hours to charge, which is well above average for most portable vaporizers. Fortunately, the battery is removable and replaceable, so you can just swap in a new one if you don’t feel like waiting for the dead battery to recharge.
