Arizer Solo & Vapir NO2 Vaporizer Temperature Settings

0
One of the main questions we get asked is: “What temperature is it best to vaporize at?” In today’s blog we will try to answer this question by looking at two different units, the Arizer Solo and the Vapir NO2 and compare their temperature settings and vapor quality.
One thing needs to be said right off the bat. When it comes to choosing your temperature setting, there is no one single right setting that you should always stay on. There really only exists a boundary of temperatures that we recommend to stay in when vaporizing. This boundary lies between 190 and 235 degrees Celsius.
Now let’s compare the two units based on their temperature setting feature!

Temperature Settings

Portable Vaporizer

  Display Type

  Max Temperature

Vapir NO2 Vaporizer
Allows temperatures to be set accurately. Has four buttons to control temperature and heating.
205 °C
401 °F
Arizer Solo
Present temperatures that each have a small indicator light. Has two buttons to control temperature and heating. Simple and quick.
210 °C
410 °F

Vapir NO2 Vaporizer

When we tested the NO2 we liked the fact that you can set the temperature accurately. After some further inspection we found out that this unit’s temperature display is actually inaccurate by 10-15 °C. This means that the heating chamber might be up to 15 degrees cooler or hotter than what the display shows. The taste of the vapor, or vapor quality, was average. Since this unit has a brass heating element, the taste is just not up to par with the new high end portables. Brass heaters tend to pass on some taste to the vapor, which is not the best, but it is not a deal breaker either. The digital display is great, but it is more of a feature you think is important rather than something that actually matters. Since the recommended temperature is between 190-235 degrees, this unit can only deliver between 190-205 (since it doesn’t get hotter than 205). So sometimes I ask myself, is it really necessary to have a digital display to manage a variation of 15 degrees? What about a high, medium and low setting? That would have been much simpler and you don’t need to press the up button for 15 seconds every time the unit starts up. All that aside, you want to start up this vape with 190 and gradually jack it up to max as the vapor becomes thinner. Alternatively you can just start vaporing at 205 °C and get very thick vapor, that’s what we call “VaporShocking”.

Arizer Solo Vaporizer

The Solo on the other hand worked really well on all temperature settings from 2-7. At level 3 the flavour was just delicious and the vapour was thin and smooth. Working our way up we found that the flavour of the botanical would not be as strong anymore but that the vapour got denser. While the vapor was denser, however there was no harshness or foreign taste. We found that flavour and vapour to be enjoyable all the way up to 210 degrees. The indicator lights are very simple to work with, convenient and functional.
To sum up, with the NO2 you can save some money since it is cheaper. It is a nice feature to be able to set temperature to 2 degrees accuracy, but in practice it won’t really make an impact on your overall experience. Taste wise, you get better vapor quality out of the Solo as well. When it comes to comparing these two units, based on temperature settings, I feel simpler is better. Pre-set indicator lights definitely trump the digital display. On vapor quality and temperature settings, the Solo wins this comparison easily.
