Arizer Solo 2 vs Arizer Air 2 - Vapor Blog

If you are hoping to buy an Arizer vaporizer you may be wondering which one would be best for you as there are a lot of similarities between the devices.

Here we look at the Arizer Solo 2 and the Arizer Air 2 and the differences between them that could make one a better choice for you than the other.


Both the Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer and the Arizer Air 2 Vaporizer have the same heating element and open airflow which means that the vapor they produce is very similar. The vapor is flavourful and has great potency so you won’t be disappointed with what either of them produce, but there are a few things which differ when it comes to functionality. For example, the Arizer Solo 2 has a super speedy 24 second heat-up time which makes it one of the fastest portable vaporizers available on the market, whereas the Air 2 can take around 80 seconds to heat up which is a fairly long time if you are hoping for a quick draw on the go. When it comes to the actual temperature range the two devices are very similar with the rage of the Air 2 reaching a slightly higher temperature, and both models allow the user to change the temperature very precisely within 1°C increments.

Both devices offer hybrid heating, which means that they benefit from both convection and conduction methods and won’t cook your herb unless you are taking a draw which makes them very efficient.

Battery life

The battery of the Solo 2 can last for an impressive 3 hours once fully charged which means that you will have time for around 20 sessions depending on the material you are using and the temperature you have set. The battery may be powerful but it is built into the device which means that if you can’t charge it while out and about you’ll need to survive without it. In comparison to this the Arizer Air 2 boasts swappable batteries, so although it will only last for around 90 minutes when fully charged as long as you have a spare or two with you when you are out you will be able to swap these over and keep vaping to your heart’s content. Another benefit of replaceable batteries is that is means that the vaporizer will have a longer life, as when an in-built battery becomes useless over time there is nothing that you can do to save your vape and it will just be time to purchase a new model.

Both devices can be used while they are charging so this is another option if you can’t wait for the battery to charge before you use your vaporizer again.


The Solo 2 is slightly bigger than the Air 2 in width measuring in at 11.4 x 4.5 x 3.5cm in comparison to the Air 2’s 12 x 3 x 3cm, and weighs considerably more at 210g when the Air 2 is a very light 116g. However, neither one is the most portable of vaporizers so if you are looking for something to discreetly carry in your pocket they may not be the right choice for you.

It is mostly the glass stems that both models have which make them a little too large to be portable, although if you are happy to carry them in a larger coat pocket or a bag this won’t be an issue at all.


As previously stated, the Arizer Solo 2 Vaporizer is larger than the Arizer Air 2 Vaporizer but they share a similar look and both are very comfortable to hold. The Air 2 is a little more discrete due to being thinner, but they both have the same colouring and style. Neither the Solo 2 or the Air 2 have an app as they are both easy to use via their digital controls, which makes them a great choice if you are looking for a simple design that does not need to be paired to your phone in order to select or change the temperature as desired.


The main differences between these vaporizers are the heat-up times and the battery life. We suggest that if you are looking for a vape that you can switch on and use very quickly then the Arizer Solo 2 is the one for you, whereas if you’d rather opt for a model that boasts replaceable batteries giving you a bit more freedom we would suggest choosing the Arizer Air 2. Either way they both deserve to be in our best vaporizers of the year!
