Design and Features
The Arizer V Tower is a less complex, stripped-down version of the Arizer Extreme-Q desktop vaporizer, the main difference being that the Tower is a whip-only vape, while the Extreme-Q can use both whips and balloons. In terms of design, that means the Tower looks identical to the Extreme-Q. It has the same cylindrical body atop a flat disc with the display screen and controls at the base of the body. The difference between the two is that the Tower has a stainless steel finish instead of the glossy black finish of the Extreme-Q. It’s still an imposing design that could nonetheless pass for an obscure kitchen appliance.
Since the Tower is a simpler version of the Extreme-Q, it doesn’t have the remote control or the forced fan of the latter. However, the impressive build quality is definitely shared by both vapes since they are both very solidly manufactured devices that only use high-quality materials. The chassis is housed in two layers of aluminum so it’s a very sturdy, durable device. Since the Tower is a simpler device, that means there are fewer accessories and components to worry about so assembly is fast and easy.
Aside from the high build quality, the standout feature of the Tower is actually its price. This is one of the most inexpensive desktop vaporizers available. In fact, there are mid-range portable vaporizers, like the Arizer Solo 2 or Planet of the Vapes One, that cost more than the Tower. Affordability isn’t always a standout feature in vaporizers, but it definitely is here.
How to Use
- Load your ground up herb into the black end of the cyclone bowl.
- Attach the white end of the cyclone bowl to the device.
- Connect the tube adapter to the cyclone bowl.
- Turn on the device and select a temperature.
- Once the temperature has been reached, inhale from the mouthpiece of the tube.
Cleaning and Maintenance
You will need to replace the tube about every two months, but you will need to clean the various glass pieces fairly regularly. You clean them by soaking them in isopropyl alcohol for about half an hour and then rinsing them off with warm water. For more stubborn residue you can use a cotton swab that has been dipped in iso alcohol to clean them.
Performance and Vapor Quality
The Tower heats up rather slowly, taking about five minutes to get to the higher temperature settings. Yes, it takes a while but that is standard for whip-style desktop vapes. The body stays cool during heating so it is always safe to handle while vaping. The whip can easily be rotated 360° so you can access it from any angle.
The vapor quality of the Tower is excellent and it should come as no surprise that it is as good as the vapor quality of the Extreme-Q. The glass cyclone bowl and elbow connector keep the vapor free of any impurities and the lengthy three-foot whip keeps the vapor cool. As with the Extreme-Q, the ideal temperature settings are in the 350°F to 390°F range. And as with the Extreme-Q, it is better if you set the temperature a few degrees higher than what you want because the bowl is located a little higher than the heating element. Draw resistance is low and even though the Tower lacks the forced fan to push the vapor through the tube, you won’t miss that feature.
