4 – Arizer Solo 2

Arizer Solo 2 Review

The Arizer Solo 2 vaporizer is the latest release from the popular Canadian manufacturer Arizer. It is the successor of the beloved Arizer Solo vaporizer and features an LED display, precise temperature control and Arizer’s famous all glass vapor path. While this update may seem minor to some, the changes made to the Solo 2 are actually pretty major and make the Solo 2 one of the best Arizer units yet! Overall the Solo 2 is a great vaporizer that gets the job done. If you’re a fan of the Arizer products you’ll be a fan of this. Now if you’re looking for your first vaporizer and you find that you’ll only be using the vape inside the house anyway, then the Solo 2 is also a good vape for you. The Solo 2 is a perfect in-home portable vape that will allow you to use it freely throughout your home or in the privacy of wherever you might take it, just don’t plan on sneaking this guy into any concerts or ballgames.
