Extreme Q vs Volcano Vaporizer (31/10/2014)

Updated October 31, 2014

In this blog post I will write about the difference between the Arizer Extreme Q and the Volcano Vaporizer. These two units are very similar in regards to the functionality, but the quality and manufacturing is much different. The EQ has a smaller heating element, fan and vaporization chamber. This will only become relevant when you are vaporizing in large groups, as the volcano has about twice the output capacity. As long as you vaporize with less than 4-5 people, this will not really bother you.

Extreme Q Vaporizer

Extreme Q VaporizerWith vapourizers that have balloons the advantage is that you can set up your gadget anywhere in the house. Then when you feel like vaporizing you can start the unit up with the remote and blow a balloon of vapor. The balloons then make the vaporizing semi-portable around the house. You can do this with both the EQ and the Volcano. However the Extreme Q Vaporizer has a remote control that makes it very convenient to use. The remote has all the popular settings in button format. So you only need to push one button to have the unit go up to you desired setting.

Volcano Vaporizer

Volcano VaporizerThe Volcano in comparison has a ceramic heating element and vaporization chamber that is much larger than the Extreme. This will also enable you to blow denser vapor into your bags. All Storz & Bickel units are made and assembled in Tuttlingen. This is one of the reasons, why the product line of this German company is the most reliable in the industry. The most important advantage of this vape are the solid and easy valve systems. The two valve systems are made from medical grade aluminum and are super convenient to disassemble and clean. With the Arizer unit in comparison, it is made of glass and medical grade tubing. Although it is perfectly functional, it doesn’t have as much of a nice touch and convenient feel to it.
Generally, it is safe to say that the Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer provides 75% of the experience at half the cost. You can then decide if it is worth it to you to have the absolute best, the Volcano Vaporizer, or if you would rather spend less money and get a vaporizer that provides great quality at a lower price point.

If you know or own one of these two units and would like to add to the discussion, we welcome your comments!

  1. I totally disagree. My friend got a digi volcano, i got a eq v4. I would say the eq is 120% the experience of the volcano at 1/3rd the cost. The volcano is bag only and super loud. The eq has a whisper fan. When my gf is sleeping i can still use the bag, but I could not do that with a volcano. The bag also ruins the taste compared to the whip. Plus glass is much less reactive than aluminum. For those who wish to not get alzheimers and not bust their wallet go for the EQ. My buddy retired his volcano for one.

  2. EQ owner here, I’ve never used a volcano and really have no interest in something that’s louder and 3.3 times the price. I always start a bag (hate the whip) and go do something. If I get distracted my bags will never pop. For personal use I use the elbow bowls because you get a bag and it’s cached, never having a second or third weaker bag. If buying for 2 people the volcano would be way overkill imo.

  3. Overkill in convenience and quality? I think the only reason to prefer extreme q is budget considerations.

    • The EQ is definitely more affordable! That being said, having a remote control for your vape is incredibly convenient, we believe! As far as quality goes, Arizer is known for their great manufacturing quality and each one of their products produces great vapour quality for the price. Of course these are our opinions and after comparing all the stationaries out there, this was our evaluation :).
