As far as portables go, these are two of the best when it comes to vapor quality.
The Arizer Solo 2 offers smooth and flavorful vapor thanks to a great design. The heating element is ceramic, which distributes heat evenly, and the chamber is stainless steel.
The rest of the vapor pathway is just a long glass stem, which helps to cool it down before reaching your mouth. The experience is almost exactly the same as it was with the original Solo, but the airflow is greatly improved in my opinion. Overall, the vapor is excellent.
There are a few portables that also offer vapor on the level of the Solo 2’s, but almost none that can outperform it.
The Mighty does. This is despite the fact that there is a decent amount of plastic involved in its vapor pathway.
The Mighty’s convection based vapor is as flavorful as you will find in any portable, and it also packs a powerful punch. You’re pretty much guaranteed to enjoy the vapor from either of these, but the Mighty’s is better.
These are two of the best built vaporizers on the market as well.
The Solo 2 is brand new and offers several improvements over its predecessor’s already great design. For starters, the Solo 2 now has a battery capable of up to 3 hours of use, which is a ridiculous battery life for a portable vaporizer.
It also has a digital screen and full temperature control. While it hasn’t been out long enough to know for sure how durable it is, it’s safe to expect a long life based on the original Solo’s performance.
The Mighty has been on the market for a lot longer than the Solo 2, and it has aged very well. The manufacturing is top notch and it also offers convection heating, a digital display and full temperature control.
There are two batteries inside the Mighty, which combine to deliver about 1.5 hours of use. Battery lifetime seems to be a mixed bag based on user reviews, but the unit is extremely well built overall.
Neither one of these is a clear winner over the other.
Using the Solo 2 is as simple as filling the chamber and turning it on. There are buttons to adjust the temperature up and down by the exact degree, and a digital display to show you what you’ve chosen.
It heats up extremely quickly too. All in all, it’s a great blend of being easy to use and versatile.
The same can be said for the Mighty. The buttons for changing the temperature are big and there’s really no mistaking how to use it.
These are both excellent choices for beginners and experienced connoisseurs alike, but the Mighty is just a bit easier thanks to the big, clear buttons.
The Solo 2 is more portable than the original Solo thanks to a slight decrease in overall size, but the glass stem still prevents it from being considered convenient to carry.
The stem means you’ll have two different pieces to carry with you, and it is also a piece that can easily break in an accident. On the plus side, the Solo 2 does offer an incredibly long battery life, and it comes with a carrying case.
Even though the Mighty has a shorter battery life, I think it’s more portable than the Solo 2. It all comes down to that glass stem. The Mighty is one whole piece and can be slipped inside a bag without there being a big risk of breaking anything. This is much more convenient.
The Solo 2 is the clear winner in this category. It offers up to double the performance of the Mighty’s 1.5 hours of use.
If you have never owned a portable before, you may not realize how impressive the Solo 2’s 3 hour battery life is.
We have not seen a battery this good since the Zeus Smite was released and there are not many others out their that can boast the same.
The glass stem also keeps the Solo 2 from being all that discreet. When you are holding the base, the stem is still completely exposed.
You can always put the base in a cup so the stem looks like a straw, but there are a lot of units that offer similar discretion without any extra work thanks to a smaller size.
The Mighty’s problem is its overall size. It’s too big to consider it as a good option when you are worried about maintaining a low profile. I don’t think that either of these vaporizers perform well in this category.
Both the Solo 2 and the Mighty offer a digital display and full temperature control to the exact degree. The Solo has a slight edge, however, thanks to a slightly higher upper limit of 428F.
This upper part of its temperature range is outside of what most people would choose to vape at, but there are others who enjoy and value it.
The Mighty is our winner, but the Solo 2 put in a very impressive showing.
The Mighty’s biggest strength is the unbeatable vapor quality for a portable. The Solo 2 does amazing as well, don’t get me wrong, but the Mighty is a small step ahead. If you are looking for the best flavor and most vapor output a portable can deliver, it is hard to look past the Mighty.
I think the Solo 2’s biggest strength when compared to the Mighty is the battery life. Three hours is almost unbelievable, and it makes me excited to see what future portables from other manufacturers may offer. But there will be a bigger cost of ownership overtime if you are constantly replacing the glass parts.
When you factor in the price difference between these two units, the decision becomes even harder.
If you buy either of these, you will likely be very happy with the purchase.
If you are convinced the Mighty is the right unit for you, be sure to pick one up from our store.
