There are plenty of choices out there for vaporizers. Today we’re going to look at the Arizer Solo Vaporizer and the PAX to compare their features.
These two top-rated vaporizers are often considered among the leaders of the pack. They both have easy to use features, and only some minor drawbacks.
Arizer Solo Vaporizer
The Solo is a sturdy reliable unit, with a really nice heft to it, which provides a strong impression of being well designed and solidly built. A little smaller than a Red Bull can, but considerably heavier, this unit is wireless during use.
It cannot be used for vaping while it is charging. It comes with two glass stems, one straight, one curved, with the bowl as part of the glass pipe. It holds a small load, adequate for the task, and seems to require that your herbs should be slightly moist. If they are too dry they are difficult to load. The glass pipe cools the vapor perfectly, and the taste is sweet and pure.
It’s that glass however which makes it less than ideal for carrying around with you. I’d recommend this for home use for its versatility and technology. The solo provides seven different heat settings, and comes up to temperature quite rapidly. Of course it’s all up to personal preference, but three, four, or five seems to be the “sweet spot”.
The Original PAX
PAX has encountered a lot of difficulty with counterfeits being sold on eBay. Irrespective of where you buy them, if you don’t buy it from PAX they will not honor the 10 year warranty. To be honest, the type of battery they use can reliably recharge about 500 times, and the warranty covers only one battery replacement during its lifetime, so the 10 year warranty is dubious.
That aside, PAX (the original model) is extremely convenient, smaller than the Solo, and heats up in less than a minute. The “oven” is bottom mounted, easy to load and clean, and the whole unit heats up in less than a minute. You could have it in your pocket, click in “on”, wait, pull it out of your pocket, take a draw, turn it off, and then put it back in your pocket, all with one hand. You can be very subtle with this choice.
Now that the PAX 2 has been released, the price has dropped from over $225 to a less painful $180. While the PAX 2 has a couple of new and interesting features, the PAX original is still a good buy if you can find it.[add_to_cart id=”1497″ style=”center”] [add_to_cart id=”1494″ style=”center”]
