Arizer Solo Tips and Tricks

Here are some quick Tips and Tricks for the Solo Vape by Arizer:

  • Before using your Arizer Solo for the first time be sure to let it warm to the highest temperature several times to eliminate any residues present from the manufacturing process and any taste associated with them. This should be standard practice for most electronics-based vaporizers.
  • Although the Solo vaporizer is very easy to master, start with a higher temperature and work your way down as you gain experience. This will result in an optimal vaporizing experience.
  • Even when you find your favorite temperature, remember it may be necessary to adjust as needed when using fresher material that contains moisture (higher temp) or extra dry herbs (lower temp). Generally speaking, levels 3 and 4 will consistently yield the best results. When using very moist herb try starting with a level 5 and moving down to level 4 after the first few pulls.
  • It sometimes may be easy to forget, but be sure to hold your Solo upside down while removing the glass stem to reload. Doing this when right side up may cause some material to fall onto the heating element and create residue or clog the teeny holes the vapor needs to pass through when using.
  • Although it is not a requirement to grind your herb finely, it will improve the performance and efficiency of your Solo vaporizer provided you always remember to keep the glass stem pressed tight against the heating plate and hold it upside down when emptying.
  • Whenever possible try to let your Solo charge to full capacity in between use. A full battery will go much further than one that is periodically recharged for short periods of time.
  • Use an old school pipe cleaner to clean the Solo’s glass stems. Simply fold the pipe cleaner over on itself once to make it a bit thicker (more surface area) and insert. If done frequently you can almost completely avoid using any type of cleaner or solvent. Neglecting to clean your stems frequently will quickly result in slightly diminished performance.
  • Be sure to turn off your Solo vape right away if taking a break “mid-bowl”. Even though the Solo has an automatic shut-off safety feature if you leave it on even just for a few minutes it will continue to vaporize your material and cause it to taste stale when you resume use. Despite what many self-professed “vaporizer experts” online may claim, when done right, no quality vaporizer will ever result in a “burnt popcorn” type taste when used correctly.

    actually, you are wrong. You turn it to a high temperature for your dry herb and a low temperature for freshly cured herb. After you set it at the lowest temperature that starts to vape your freshly cured herb, keep taking pulls until there is no more vapor coming through, then simply turn the temperature up one notch and pull on it until there is no more vapor again, and repeat until completely stale. If done properly, your herb should not be burnt in the slightest. i.e. your green herb should look tan in color after a thorough vaporization, it should not look brown and burnt.

      If your herb looks tan and not brown, generally speaking, throw it in a bowl and you will feel how much active is left. You WANT it to reach a darker brown, again generally speaking, but slowly, after an extended session at the right temp. Unless you are dense it is EASY to know when you are done. You are done when the vapor is dry and barely there REGARDLESS OF COLOR. The only exception would be if you had the temp too low. If combustion was being caused you would … wait for it … taste smoke! Try this, load your Solo, put it on whatever temp you like. Pull it until no vapor comes out. Are you left with ash? Is it on fire? Or is no vapor being produced with the plant matter intact? Has the surface of the herb changed in any except for color? If the answer is the latter then guess what? It didn’t combust, because combustion means to burn the plant matter and when something burns, it burns. If it was combusting you would have smoke – totally different taste, totally different experience. Anyone who has used a vape that does tend to combust KNOWS that moment when you cross the line. And it doesn’t happen with the Solo, at least never to me. Darker brown material DOES NOT equal combustion. I repeat, darker brown material DOES NOT equal combustion! As the comment below says “over the different types and various qualities of herb it impossible to judge by looks alone”. Think about that logically for a moment.

    First and foremost the Solo NEVER burns herb at ANY setting, so that shows your inexperience. Second, always go by taste not looks, over the different types and various qualities of herb it impossible to judge by looks alone. You know when you are done when the herb has a dry taste and no vapor comes through, if you stop sooner than that or based on color you must like wasting your herb. As far as temp, you could go in either direction starting high and moving lower or vice versa and still get great results, the truth it that very little adjustment is needed across all types of herb, dry or wet and it really only needs to be adjusted when on one end of the spectrum or the other. Either way you arent going to burn your herb in THIS vaporizer. Sometimes I pack the bowl tight like with the Extreme-Q and put the setting all the way up to 7. Works great! Do what works for you, can’t go wrong with the Solo.

    You’re both wrong. Anypony who says the solo never burns herb at any setting really means that they, personally, have never burned herb with the solo. Burning is not only possible but common on high settings like, oh, seven. The very fact that you declare burning herb to be proof of “inexperience” means that it is, indeed, possible by your own admission.
    Second, “freshly cured” herb is already dry. Drying is what happens prior to curing, which anypony who has properly cured their own herb knows. Therefore, contrasting “dry” and “freshly cured” as if they were mutually exclusive is at best imprecise.
    The blog post itself is also grossly incomplete. I would expect “tips and tricks” to actually cover ground beyond the very basics; like, what buttons do I push to turn the solo to the last setting it was used at? I know a way exists, I have done it before, but my handbook is ancient history.
    When the same people who make the vape create such a lame and uninformative page about their product it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.
