While the company has made several changes over their original design, there are definitely a few things that still stick out to me.
They’re not deal killers, but just things to keep in mind.
Here’s my Arizer Air review.
How it Works
The Air gets points right off the bat for being convenient for those who already own the Arizer Solo. Most of the parts and stems are interchangeable between the two devices which is a major plus. At the end of the day, this will ultimately save you money and hassle if you ever need to replace any parts on either of the two.
Using this latest Arizer vaporizer is simply and straightforward.
- Grind up your goods.
- Scoop your green or dry herbs up with the glass stem.
- Flip the Air upside down.
- Slide in the stem to the Air.
- Set your temperature.
- Let it heat up.
- Enjoy clean and tasty hits through the all-glass stem and pathway.
A really great feature of the Arizer Air is that it only has one button and it controls everything, from the power of the device all the way to all the temperature settings.
You know as well as I do that all-glass stems most always give you the best flavor; the only caveat to that is that they can be a pain in the butt when it comes to carrying them around because of course, they are fragile.
So when it comes to portability, this is where the Arizer kind of loses some points.
To answer this, the Arizer Air features multiple sized stems and mouthpieces and even plastic tips that can be fit onto the tips of them. This doesn’t help in terms of the portability factor, but it adds an extra layer of protection to the glass stems.
Of course, throwing plastic on the end of glass negates all the awesomeness of smoking straight through glass.
Portability is an important factor in travel vapes, and while the Air is much smaller and more compact than the original Solo, it is still not the most portable vape on the market.
The box includes a carrying case to help store and transport the pieces, but multiple pieces is more of a pain than just one simple piece to load as you run out the door.
So the Arizer Air vaporizer actually features 5 different temperature settings.
The best setting to use would obviously depend on factors like dryness of your herbs, amount packed and even the type of herb used.
The 5 settings are color coded and controlled using the single button on the front of the device:
- Blue – 356 °F (180°C)
- White – 374 °F (190°C)
- Green – 392 °F (200°C)
- Orange – 401 °F (205°C)
- Red – 410 °F (210°C)
I hate to keep comparing it to the Solo because I know that it’s important to judge it as a new vape objectively, but it’s a little tough.
The one thing that is not interchangeable between the Solo and the Air is the battery which kind of sucks.
The new system is better all-around, but the battery life has dropped a bit from the Solo.
Average battery life can be about 45 – 60 mins, but you can use the Air while charging after a short initial charge.

How to Take Care of It
The care and maintenance of the Air is pretty standard.
Just make sure to keep the chamber clean and do your best to brush it out after every session so you can get the best results and flavor.
As with all glass pieces, the glass stems will build up residue fairly quickly so just make sure to soak them in alcohol and rinse them well before you use it again.
Final Thoughts and Pro Tips
Overall, the Arizer Air is definitely a high-quality vaporizer and is for sure a step up from the Solo.
In terms of portability, it is a little bit bigger than a lot of the other vapes on the market at the moment, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for something to throw in your pocket as you head out. That, and the fact that you have to deal with glass stems possibly breaking.
Other than those 2 things, those are the only flaws.
Personally, this is the type of vape that’s best used if you’re going over to a friends house, a get-together, or your just chilling at home maxing and relaxing. If that’s the case, then I would recommend it 100%.
It produces an amazing flavor, is built extremely well, and will last you for years to come for sure.
Overall, I think the Air is an excellent investment.
