Design & Features
The ArGo is obviously the smallest and most portable of the three Arizers, but it also has some nifty design details. The most obvious one is the borosilicate glass mouthpiece, an Arizer trademark that they’ve managed to fit on this tiny device. Normally you would worry about it breaking or getting dirty when the ArGo is crammed into a tight space. However, the designers took care of that by using a pop-up hood that completely covers the mouthpiece, you just press down on it when you’re ready to vape.
It’s a simple, smart design detail that increases the Arizer Go’s practicality. The only downsides are that the temperature control buttons are a little small and the device gets a little hot when it’s in use.
Arizer Air 2:
The Air 2 is right in the middle where size is concerned. It’s clearly larger than the ArGo, but it’s also a little taller than the Solo 2. However, that is offset by its much slimmer girth. The cylindrical design makes it very easy to hold and the buttons are well placed. The mouthpiece is easy to attach and remove but it also impedes portability.
The included carrying case does help since it has compartments where you can place the mouthpiece or any extra batteries. However, that means that you need an extra accessory if you want to take the Air 2 with you.
Arizer Solo 2:
The glass mouthpiece isn’t great for portability but it does make this—and the Air 2—easy to use and easy to maintain. It has a somewhat drab look overall, but its ease of use makes up for that.
Cleaning & Maintenance
All three of the Arizer vapes are pretty low maintenance devices mainly because of the glass mouthpieces that they use. The advantage of using those mouthpieces for loading and vaping the herb is that there is not a chamber to clean out. So, cleaning is one thing you don’t have to worry about with these vapes.
- Arizer Go Oven Capacity: 0.15 grams
- Arizer Air 2 Oven Capacity: 0.2 grams
- Arizer Solo 2 Oven Capacity: 0.2 grams
All three vaporizers use convection heating to vaporize the dry herb, and have the same temperature Range: 122°F – 428°F
Longevity and Reliability
All three of the Arizer vapes are pretty good in the reliability and longevity departments, so the only possible worry is about the glass mouthpiece cracking or breaking. But as long as you are careful, that really isn’t much of a worry. The Solo 2 is the oldest one here and it still works as well as it did when it was new. The ArGo and Air 2 are newer but are still a few years old by now and they still work perfectly. So, no matter which of these vapes you get, you won’t have to worry about them failing.

Arizer Go: The vapor quality of the ArGo is excellent, some of the best you will get out of a portable thanks to the convection heating used in all the Arizer vapes. The glass mouthpiece helps immensely since it keeps the vapor cool and pure. The body of the vaporizer does get a little warm while in use, but that isn’t too big of a problem.
Arizer Air 2: Once again, the Air 2 is smack in the middle. Its vapor quality is better than the ArGo, but not as good as the Solo 2’s. That still means the vapor quality is some of the best around, just not the very best.
Arizer Solo 2: The biggest Arizer also produces the best vapor, which probably shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Even if you are expecting the vapor to be good, you might be surprised at just how good it is. The flavor is excellent, and once again the glass mouthpiece is a big advantage in delivering that tasty vapor.
Which ones should you choose?
You can see that all of the Arizer vapes are operated in much the same way, which is a pretty easy way. Despite that operation being a little different from all other dry herb vapes, all of the Arizer vapes are pretty simple to use.
So how do you choose between the Arizer Go (Review | Buy), the Arizer Air 2 (Review | Buy), and the Arizer Solo 2 (Review | Buy)? That’s easy, it all depends on what you want in a dry herb vaporizer.
If you value convenience and portability—along with great vapor quality, of course—then the ArGo is the obvious choice. It is small enough to fit nearly anywhere while still retaining all of the great qualities of its larger siblings. If you’re mainly an indoor vaper, then the Solo 2 is for you. Its vapor quality is exemplary and it has impressively long battery life. Plus it’s one of the easiest to maintain vaporizers around.
If you want something that’s in between those two vapes, then you’re looking for the Air 2. As long as you use the carrying case, it’s easier to carry around than the Solo 2, though not as easy as the ArGo. It does have better vapor quality than the ArGo and doesn’t get warm while you use it.
That being said, the Air 2 does seem like the odd man out here. It is a good vaporizer, but it being larger than a portable, but not quite a home vape means that it occupies a very small niche. Nevertheless, that just means that there is an Arizer for every type of weed vaper out there.
