    The Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer

    The Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer

    Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer: The New & Improved.


    The guys from Canada have finally revised one of the most well-known vaporizers on the vape scene. When electronic vaporizers first appeared on the scene, the Arizer Solo was one of the best units about. While it is a true classic its slightly outdated now with all the new vaporizers taking the lime light, though it is still a very good vape. It has been a while since Arizer have bought anything new to the scene, the Arizer Air being their last edition, but fear not the Arizer Solo 2 is here!
    With a good reputation for kicking out reliable and durable long lasting products, many folks have stuck to using the original Solo Vaporizer instead of upgrading to the newer swankier vape full of gimmicks. So, it seems Arizer have gone for the old moto and not changed something that isn't broken and kept the overall design very similar to the previous Solo vape, so what have they changed?
    While the overall shape is the same, the Solo 2 has been made to be more compact than the previous model, while keeping its tradition of a robust and solid build the solo 2 has smoothed out its curves and is slenderer than its predecessor and as a result it is also slightly lighter as well. The heat chamber has also been kept at the same diameter, so your old Arizer Solo mouthpieces and glass accessories will fit if needed, another nice improvement is that the battery is significantly more powerful and claims to give around 3 hours of use, double the amount of the older model.
    The biggest addition and stand out change to the new and improved model is the digital display and precise temperature control, looking Purdy on the front of the device, the digital display is simple to use and allows you to customise your temperature settings as well as some other options with ease.
    The Arizer Solo 2 is a worthwhile upgrade if you’re looking to replace your Solo for something newer, it has quicker heat up times, less draw resistance and a bigger battery as well as being slimmer and having precise temperature control, while keeping its core values of toughness and durability that you come to expect from Arizer.
    Full digital temperature control system - Ranges from 122°F- 428°F / 50°C- 220°C
    Fast heating system: The Solo 2 can reach max temperature in a mere 28 seconds (24 seconds to 390°F)
    Dual Heating System incorporated: The Solo 2 uses both convection / conduction heating
    Much improved battery life: The Solo 2 Vaporizer is capable of 3 Hours of continuous vape time
    Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer now has a bowl capacity of 0.15 grams
    Arizer provide a 2 year warranty on workmanship and defects to the Vaporizer | 1 year warranty on the vape's battery, and a lifetime warranty on the heating element.

    Pax 3 VS DaVinci IQ

    Pax 3 VS DaVinci IQ

    Pax 3 Vaporizer  VS DaVinci IQ Vaporizer

    Two of the most elegant premium portable vaporizers to come to the UK for 2017 so far. The Ploom Pax 3 vaporizer and DaVinci IQ vaporizer are both extremely popular for their great looks and feature-full package, how do they compare against each other? Well let’s see.
    In this comparison, I will compare the features of the two against each other, what one has got and the other hasn’t, what materials have been used in the construction and of course how they perform.

    BUILD QUALITY AND DESIGN

    Both of these vapes look absolutely stunning and glamorous in design, flexing their muscles to be the Apple smartphone for the vaporizer scene.
    The Ploom Pax 3 vaporizer has a sleek and slim rectangular shape with a really smooth minimalist finish, there are no buttons or charging ports on show to ruin its curves. The shell is made from highly polished anodized aluminium, giving it a premium stunning look, overall it feels nice in the hand and sturdy on top.
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer is also a beauty in its own right, wider and stubbier than the pax 3 this vape also feels nice in the hand and is almost invisible to the public when held, with a sturdy brushed aluminium shell and stunning LED light grid on the front of the device. While the Pax 3 discreetly hides its button to make it more cosmetically pleasing to the eye, the DaVinci IQ has them in full view on the side (two temperature control buttons and one power button).

    Verdict
    Draw – They are both sturdy units and very pleasing to the eye, I am afraid it is up to you to choose which beauty grabs your eye the most, or if you perhaps prefer your buttons readily available or hidden out of sight.

    SIZE AND WEIGHT

    The Pax 3 vaporizer measures in at 9.8cm x 3cm x 2.1cm and weighs just 90 grams.
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer measures in at 9cm x 4.1cm x 2.3cm and weighs 145 grams.

    Verdict
    The Pax 3 vaporizer wins this round with it low fat diet, weighing in considerably less than the DaVinci IQ, however 145 grams is hardly heavyweight.

    TEMPERATURE SETTINGS AND HEATING

    The Pax 3 vaporizer uses conduction to heat a stainless-steel heat chamber that can hold up to .3 grams of dry herb, and has the ability to also do concentrates using the canister attachment supplied. It also reaches temperature very quickly, taking as little as 15 seconds to be ready to vape. The Pax 3 vaporizer has 4 temperature setting that are pre-set (360°F, 380°F,400°F, 420°F) with the option of precise adjustments via the smartphone app with included extras such as boost mode, efficiency mode, stealth mode and flavour mode. The draw from the Pax 3 is relatively easy and you have the choice of two mouthpieces, a flat one and a raised one.
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer also uses 360 conduction to heat, but has a slightly more sophisticated zirconia heat chamber that can hold up to .3 grams of dry herb. It takes 30-45 seconds to reach temperature and can be precisely adjusted anywhere between 250°F-430°F, the DaVinci IQ vaporizer also has a smart phone app and with 4 smart path modes, a precision mode and a boost mode. The IQ has a relatively low draw resistance that is slightly better than the Pax 3 and also comes with two mouthpieces, a flat and raised one that are made from zirconia to improve flavour.

    Verdict
    It’s a close one here, with both vapes having very different strong points. The DaVinci IQ takes it though in my opinion with its zirconia chamber and mouthpieces and the ability to change your temperature precisely without the need of its smart phone app.

    PERFORMANCE

    The Pax 3 and DaVinci IQ vaporizers performance are very similar in comparison, and both do the job very well at producing tasty vapor, although I believe the IQ takes the biscuit with slightly less draw resistance, cooler, tastier vapor and larger cloud production.

    Verdict
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer is the winner here.

    BATTERY LIFE AND CHARGING

    The Pax 3 vaporizer’s battery is a non-removable 3500MaH 18650 rechargeable battery that charges via USB this should give 8-10 good sessions before a recharge is needed.
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer also uses a 3500MaH 1650 rechargeable battery that charges via USB, with the difference of that it is removable and can be swapped out and replaced with a spare. A full charge will give 6-8 good sessions on average.

    Verdict
    The DaVinci IQ vaporizer wins because its ability to swap out the battery for a spare.

    ADDITIONAL FEATURES

    The Pax 3 and DaVinci IQ vaporizer both feature haptic feedback (vibration alerts), illumination control and auto shut off.

    WARRANTY

    The Pax 3 and Davinci IQ vaporizer both have a 10-year limited warranty.

    OVERALL

    These two vaporizers are both great pieces of premium kit and it is hard to make a decision, and I believe either choice wouldn’t leave you disappointed. The DaVinci IQ in my opinion comes out on top due to its zirconia material use, slightly better performance and the ability to remove the battery.
