Celebrating therapeutic herbs at Mary Jane Berlin

German lovers of therapeutic herbs gathered at the Berlin Arena on a sunny weekend for the fifth Mary Jane Berlin event.

Being a fan of therapeutic herbs I decided to take the short flight to Berlin and join them. Berliners are a healthy bunch. Cyclists whizzed by me as I walked along the tree lined boulevards to the event from my Airbnb. It seemed every other shop was bio, organic or vegan.

It was mediterranean hot so I was keen to get to the event but not so keen that I ended up there a sweaty mess. I ducked from one shady side of the street to the other until I found my way to the river where the Berlin Arena is located.

Judging by the large queues Mary Jane Berlin is a popular event. Luckily I met some friends from a therapeutic seed company based out of Holland. Chatting with them helped pass the time as we waited. Inside, there were all manner of companies offering products to help people grow herbs indoors. It seems to be a trend that is catching on.

It wasn’t long before I found another friend who was working for an organic nutrient company. Using organic nutrients helps ensure that your home grown therapeutic herbs are of the finest quality, taste great and most importantly are safe for human consumption.

He pulled out a medicine bottle that contained oil that was extracted from a special herb and offered me a few drops under the tongue. He kindly informed me, “You might forget that you took it but don’t worry, after half an hour it will come knocking at the back of your head saying ‘remember me!’”

Moving on, I drifted around the show soaking in the herbal lifestyle. True enough around twenty minutes later there was a little knock knock at the back of my head and I sunk into a state of sublime relaxation.

The Arena doesn’t seem so large at first but they packed in a lot of exhibitors. The venue was by the river, so attendees could pop outside for some cool air coming off the large open space of water. Deck chairs were lined up for those who like to enjoy their herbs seated. There was even a large party boat to enhance the Balearic vibe.

Once back inside I headed to the VapoShop stand. I was curious to meet George, the mastermind behind vaporizer company DynaVap. They hand make beautifully engineered flame powered vaporizers. George is enthusiastic about his products and his passion shines through in the vapes themselves. He spent his days at the show demonstrating their product range on the VapoShop stand.

What’s particularly nice about the DynaVap range is the fact that they use interesting materials. The NonaVong is especially stunning with its use of wood. Conveniently, they come in the right diameter to slot into a water pipe. This means that those invested in a nice piece of glass are not only restricted to combustion as a way to enjoy their flowers. After the purchase of a NonaVong they can now participate in the healthier option of vaping with their water pipe.

Being a vape enthusiast I was keen to see what other new products were on display. There was the Boundless Tera which reminds me of the form factor of a hand grenade. Given the size of the heating chamber I’m sure it would have the capacity to get everyone in the room on the floor. There was also the magnificent PuffCo Peak that takes dab rigs to the next level.

I spent three wonderful days chilling (baking) under the sun at the Berlin Arena with like-minded herb enthusiasts. What struck me was that the emphasis of the event was much more geared towards the lifestyle surrounding therapeutic herb culture (in case you are interested I wrote more on that here). There seemed the perfect blend of technology, clothing, herbal products and culture.

Hopefully, we’ll see you on the VapoShop stand at Mary Jane Berlin 2019.

Vapes designed with distinction

If you’re a person who likes the finer things in life then you’re probably on the market for a vaporizer which is a cut above the rest. This selection of premium vapes may not be within everybody’s budget but they surely push the boundaries in vaporizer design. These vapes utilise cutting edge technology and high-grade materials which all add up to a superior vapour quality. Seeking five-star luxury vaping? then look no further…

Firefly 2

The Firefly 2 is synonymous with premium vapour quality. Its distinctive design is emotive of smoking a bowl pipe. The attention to detail is exquisite - even down to the glowing heating chamber that gives its name. Despite arousing feelings of nostalgia for the ancient practise of combustion the technology used throughout the Firefly 2 is cutting edge. Not only can you pair it up to your iPhone (or other smart phone) it also has a high-quality glass finish on the chamber. Want to vape more than just herbs? No problem, pop in a concentrate heating pad and you can vape your concentrates too.

DaVinci IQ

The DaVinci IQ was one of the first premium pocket vapes to hit the market and it still holds its own today. The vapour quality is astounding for a device so small and it packs some serious technology. The DaVinci IQ uses a concept of smart paths which are heating patterns designed to get the most out of your herbs. You can run with their predefined selection or pair to your phone and design your own. The IQ is a thing of beauty and practicality thanks to the subtle led display and integrated haptic feedback. A 100% ceramic zirconium air path allows you to get a draw of the purest flavour. The replaceable battery enables you to vape premium vapour for extended periods.

PuffCo Peak

The Peak is is a smart dab rig. No more messing around with blow torches or red hot nails when you want your next dab sesh. We’ve never come across a vaporizer as stunningly good looking as PuffCo’s Peak. Whichever angle you look at the Peak it can only be described as gorgeous. It looks straight off the set of the sci-fi film TRON 2.0. Integrated LEDs and water cooling system add to the allure. Hand blown glass adds to its exclusivity.

Airvape X

The Airvape X not only has the distinction of being one of the thinnest portable vapes on the market but it’s also incredibly good looking. You’d be forgiven for thinking a “thin vape” could be a little on the wimpy side. Not so with the Airvape X which - thanks to the ruggedly designed air cooling system – has the function to match the looks. It was designed in collaboration with YouTube vape expert Vape Critic so you can be rest assured what you are comfortably slipping into your pocket is worthy of a vapour connoisseur. The X comes in black or ocean blue (new!), including a smell-proof protective shell and concentrates pad insert. This stylish vaporizer is very reasonably priced.

CFC 2.0

Maybe all these high-end vapes are beyond your budget or you are looking for something completely new? Here’s a great scoop. The Boundless CFC 2.0 is just hitting the market. It is billed as an “ultra-discreet, compact, and lightweight unit” for use on the go. Its mini size belies its ability to produce large clouds of great tasting vapour. It may be very pocketable but that doesn’t stop Boundless including space for a rather large heating chamber with a half gram capacity. VapoShop is the first to stock this pocket marvel in Europe.

What is a bubbler and why do I need one?

A bubbler is a popular vaporizer accessory - but what is it exactly? Let’s take a quick look at what a bubbler is and why you may want to consider getting one for your favourite portable vaporizer.

What is a bubbler?

Most people reading this will no doubt be familiar with the concept of a water pipe (commonly referred to as a bong). In a bong, tobacco (or more “tropical herbs”) are burnt and the resulting hot smoke is cooled through the water within the pipe. They work the same way as hookahs which originated from India and the Middle East. Trouble is, the smoke is still harmful to your health despite it being water cooled.

 A bubbler uses the same concept but it is designed to be small enough to fit onto a portable vaporizer. As there are many forms of portable vaporizers on the market - each with different shaped mouthpieces - brands are starting to produce bubblers that specifically fit their products. Some, such as the PuffCo Peak, are even integrating a bubbler into the design.

 Bubblers tend to be made from glass and hold a small amount of water that helps to cool and hydrate the vapour passing through. This means you can take bigger draws without irritating your throat.

Who would want one?

Even though vaporizing is a much safer way to consume your favourite herb you cannot escape the fact that the resulting vapour can sometimes be hot and often dry. If you are not used to it - this hot dry vapour can be irritating to the throat. Smokers especially tend to cough when they take a reasonable sized draw from a vaporizer.

 As a bubbler cools and hydrates the vapour passing through it people who are put off vaping - due to the fact it makes them cough - are able to vape in comfort.

 A good example would be a medicinal user who has to stop smoking but they still need the relief the therapeutic herb of their choice gives them - bubblers make vaping more comfortable thus giving them a healthy avenue to explore.

 I vape everyday and when it’s possible to do so I tend to add a bubbler to the vaporizer. I find that I can take bigger draws with no discomfort whatsoever. Even as a seasoned vape enthusiast - from time to time - I have the need to stifle a cough. Adding a bubbler just makes vaping more pleasant.

 Which brands offer bubblers?

At time of writing there are around 15 bubblers available in our shop. These include:

  • Linx bubbler: a high quality glass bubbler which fits their classy Gaia and Hypnos Zero models.
  • XMAX bubbler: an affordable bubbler which fits their Starry and Fog portable vapes. It’s adaptable design can also fit other brands too.
  • FlowerMate bubbler: an ingeniously designed bubbler for the FlowerMate portable vaporiser.
  • Magic-Flight UFO: as expected, Magic-Flight’s take on a water pipe attachment is not your typical bubbler. See it to believe it.

Adapters: some brands don’t offer actual bubblers yet. All is not lost, you can maybe pick up a water pipe adaptor. You can get one for the Pax 2/3, the Mighty/Crafty and even for - everyone’s favourite modular-wooden-flame-powered-vape - the Sticky Brick Junior.

Bubbler disadvantages

To show we’re impartial and have our customers best interest at heart over profits we thought we should point out some of the down sides to bubblers.

 Let’s get the most obvious out of the way first - they are usually made from glass and they need water inside them to function. It doesn’t take Einstein to see issues could arise here - particularly when it comes to portability. Being glass they can break if not well protected and having water inside means that they can leak whilst in you pocket or bag.

You can probably get away using a bubbler for a walk in the park but should probably not pack it on your next snowboarding trip.

Finally, be aware that most bubblers will only fit the specific brand you purchase it for. If you have a few portable vapes this may mean you could end up buying more than one bubbler.

Conclusion

Bubblers are a great way to get the most out of your vaporizer. They cool and hydrate the vapour making it as smooth as can be.

Whether you are new to vaping or a seasoned vape nerd a bubbler can help improve your sessions. Check that there is a bubbler available for your model.


En smygtitt på PuffCo Peak

Många av er som läser känner säkert till Puffco tack vare deras väldigt populära och införskaffade PuffCo Plus pennvaporizers för koncentrat. Om du diggade detta, kommer du garanterat att vara intresserad av deras nästa release vid namn Peak.

Puffcos tighta design- och ingenjörsteams enda mål var att leverera den absolut bästa plattformen för konsumtion av koncentrat. De såg koncentrat som framtiden av konsumtion  på grund av att de innehåller de bästa delarna av plantan. Enligt deras hemsida resulterar en bra extraktionsprocess i ’’ den mest potenta, smakrika och hälsosamma produkten möjlig’’.

Dab rig 2.0

Fram tills nyligen har det enda valet för folk som viljat låsa upp potentialen av koncentrat varit en dab rig. Sedan började portabla vapes integrera stöd för att vapea koncentrat. Hur som helst är dab riggar ganska grova ur ett teknologiskt perspektiv, och vaporizers som är designade för att vapea blommor är nödvändigtvis ej den bästa lösningen för att vapea koncentrat.

Det är inte till någons förvåning att PuffCo Plus blev en sådan succé. High Times magazine skrev mycket om den och beskrev den som ’’ en av den bästa pennvaporizers genom tiderna’’ och hamnade till och med i Netflix hiten - Disjointed (avsnitt 9 - se om du kan hitta den).

Introduktion av PuffCo Peak

PuffCo kombinerade framtidens teknologi av moderna vapes med de höga temperaturerna och vattenkylningens funktion från en dab rig. Resultatet är den spektakulära och snygga ’’smart rig’’ Peak.

Allt är förvarat i en bärväska som är designad för ändamålet. Inuti vilket du hittar din 18 cm höga smart rig, med handblåst glas, integrerad med LED slinga och en grov bas i silikon. Efter att jag har sett en ed egna ögon kan jag sannerligen vittna om att utseendet är ingenting annat än spektakulärt och de ser ut som den sortens dab rig som Tron 2.0 skulle hittas använda.

Sammanfattning av PuffCo Peaks funktioner

4 unika värmeinställningar

Oavsett hur du tycker om att konsumera, finns det en perfekt inställning för dig. Det populära ’’sesh-modet’’- vilket var inkluderat i PuffCo Plus - tillåter dig att förlänga dina sessioner. Resultatet av detta blir en social dab- upplevelse för dig och dina polare.

20 sekunders genomsnittlig uppvärmning

I jämförelse med den 3 minuter långa processen av uppvärmning och nedkylningstider av en vanlig dab rig, blir detta välkomna nyheter för älskare av koncentrat.

Intelligent kalibrering av temperaturen

Den smarta mjukvaran justerar automatiskt värmetiderna om din avtagbara, keramiska bowl fortfarande är varm.

LED-slinga / haptisk feedback

Den diskreta ljusslingan tillför indikationer för batteriets status och värmecykeln när det behövs, och döljer sig när de inte behövs. Haptisk feedback får din timing att bi perfekt så att du kan avnjuta perfekta hits varje gång.

Snabb laddning / lång batteritid

Batteriet laddas upp till full kapacitet på 2 timmar och håller under ungefär 30 härliga ’’dabs’’.

PuffCo Peak Europeisk frakt

Just nu finns inte Peak tillgänglig på marknaden, men européer kan få en notis via email om när PuffCo Peak finns tillgänglig från VapoShop.

Vi hoppas att kunna börja frakta i April 2018.


Best portable vaporizer for the slopes - Crafty (Storz & Bickel)

As an experienced snowboarder and vaporizer convert I’ve been on the hunt for the best portable vaporizer for hitting the piste. I think I have found it in the form of the Crafty from Storz & Bickel, here’s why I think it is such a good buy for skiers or boarders alike.

Crafty portable vaporizer

German engineering

I have a motto that has served me well through life. “If in doubt, buy the German one”. Germans don’t make rubbish, they strive to engineer the best - Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Siemens the list of quality engineered products is long.

Storz & Bickel are the first company in the EU that produces certified medical grade vaporizers. The Germans take their products very seriously.

Best portable vape quality

Storz & Bickel have a reputation of providing the best vaping experiences in the business. Their pocket wonder the Crafty lives up to that reputation. It’s a little slower to heat than their larger offering - the Mighty - but plenty fast enough to take a crafty draw on the way up the mountain on a ski lift. The convection heating system serves up copious clouds of tasty vapour. 

One button operation

The Crafty only has one button. Load it up at base camp, set your favourite temperature (via an excellent App) and you are ready to draw with just one press.

You can also set a booster temperature that can be activated with the same button - in case you vape all the good stuff and want the high heat to finish the rest. The button is big enough that you can feel it through your gloves so you can operate it without freezing your digits off. This gorgeous button is reason enough to make this the best portable vaporizer for use with gloves. 

Operating the Crafty with gloves on

Haptic feedback

Haptic feedback means that the vape will give a buzz once it reaches your desired temperature. That means you don’t have to sit and stare at it for an indication it is ready to vape. Perfect for when you want to activate it in your pocket. Sit on your ski lift, press the button in your pocket, wait for it to vibrate then take a draw - no one will even notice.

Rugged plastic construction

The Crafty and its larger sibling the Mighty both come in a durable plastic body. They won’t look out of place alongside your power tools. The Crafty will withstand some serious knocks. 

Crafty mouthpiece

Rounded corners

Speaking of serious knocks. If you take a tumble you don’t want to be impaled by something sharp in your pocket. The Crafty has smooth rounded corners and won’t rip your clothing or skin should you fall and plant your hip on an ice patch. For this reason, it’s the best portable vaporizer to fall onto for sure.

Textured surface

There are a lot of beautifully smooth portable vaporizers on the market. They easily slide in and out of your pocket when you are at a concert or cinema. When you are using your device suspended 5 metres in the air being smooth is not necessarily a nice to have. The Crafty’s vented surface gives you something to grip. It also means that it’s the best portable vaporizer should you drop it on a snowy slope - there is a good chance it will stay where it lands. Not so, for some of the slick competition. 

Preload the loading tool for laters

The Crafty uses the same loading tool that all Storz & Bickel devices use. You can fill it full of your favourite therapeutic herb (or concentrate) and reload as you need. It’ll give even the most hard core vaper more than they will need for a day on the mountain. If you need more than that then it’s probably safer you stay in the chalet.

USB charging

It helps to have a vape that charges via USB when travelling. Why’s that? There’s a good chance that most of your electronic devices use USB. In the unlikely event you forget a USB cable one of your companions probably packed theirs. Failing that, you can pick one up easily. The battery lasts for ages - so you may even survive a short trip without having to recharge at all.

Crafty loading tool

The negatives 

To be fair, the Crafty is not 100% perfect. There are a few things you should be aware of before you purchase one.

First of all, this little beauty does not come cheap. Storz & Bickel operate in the top end of the market. All their vapes are the most expensive out there. The Crafty is their cheapest offering but it is still more than most. You pay for quality engineering.

Another thing that bugs me about the Crafty is the fact that it relies on the app (which is excellent by the way) to change the temperature. Depending on your use you may only have to do this once. In case you change your temperature often you should be aware that you’ll need to whip out your phone to do so. It was a bold move for Storz & Bickel to rely on an app like this - the flip side is - it simplifies use to one simple button press. For this reason, I see this as a secondary vaporizer and not a primary vape. Given the price - it may be out of reach for most people’s second portable vaporizer. If you are gonna buy only one portable vaporizer I would say go for the slightly more expensive Mighty - it gives you complete control over the temperature via the device itself.

Finally, to load effectively, you’ll need to use the loading tool that is shipped with your Crafty. This in itself is not a problem, but should you lose this tool you’ll need to load by hand until you get a replacement - which is possible but not as neat.

Crafty button

Conclusion

The Crafty is perfect for vaping on the go. I think it’s the best portable vaporizer for outdoors use. It’s rugged construction, durable materials, textured finish and rounded corners make it especially good for someone doing extreme activities. Easy loading, USB charging and long battery life make it a great choice for those vaping away from home.

To top it all off the Crafty from Storz and Bickel produces ample, great tasting, convection clouds from both flowers and concentrates. Therefore - of all the fantastic portable vaporizers on the market - the Crafty would be the first portable vape I’d pack for a snowboarding trip.


Lighter-based portable vaporizers explained (and our personal top 5!)

With the increase of recently released portable vaporizers containing high tech features such as Bluetooth connectivity (hello Davinci IQ and PAX 3!), powerful lithium batteries and the use of aerospace materials, it’s easy to forget about a specific niche in the world of vaporizing: flame-powered portable vaporizers. As the name implies, these vaporizers rely on an actual flame as heat source instead of a battery and electronic heater.

Vaporizing with a flame?

Whereas most vaporizers are electric, and use a battery to convert energy into the heat that is required to vaporize your favourite herb (generally at temperatures between 170 and 220°C), flame powered devices use the heat of a flame from either a regular lighter or a more powerful torch lighter. However, as the herb directly touching the flame would cause it to scorch and cause combustion, the heating is indirect, using the flame to heat a material and to pull this hot air through your herb (convection heating). Having said that, combustion may still occur when the heat is applied for extended time, so it is important to always use the right technique.

And while these vaporizers are certainly not for everyone, there are some clear advantages to these ‘basic’ flame-fueled vapes.

1. Use anywhere, anytime

With an exhausted battery but no electricity outlets around, your battery-operated vaporizer has become pretty much useless. If the batteries of your vape are removable this can be prevented by always bringing an extra battery, but with many popular models not offering this feature, a power bank or power outlet is a necessity to keep vaping once you’ve run out of the initial charge. While of course it is possible to run out of lighter gas, there is usually a good chance someone in your surrounding has a lighter for you – much like in smoker’s culture.

2. Low cost

As the design of these flame vaporizers is often more straightforward than that of an advanced electronic vaporizer (containing a battery, a sophisticated heating system, a heating path etcetera), most flame-based units are priced around or even below 50 euro. Some people even use them as disposable vaporizers, for example when traveling to a foreign country.

3. Flavour

Due to the absence of plastics and electronics, flame-based vapes are known for producing excellent tasting, pure vapour. The majority of these models are constructed using mainly natural or inert materials, such as a glass, ceramic and wood.

5 popular flame based portable vaporizers

VapCap (€39 - €159)

The VapCap (by DynaVap) is a relatively new product on the scene. Manufactured in the USA, the VapCap is available in various materials, ranging in price from 39 euro for the VapCap original (glass) piece to 159 euro for a heavy duty Titanium (OmniVap) edition, with the VapCap M offering the best value (making it our best selling VapCap). What’s unique about the VapCap is that is clicks when the material has reached the desired temperature. The video below demonstrates the heat-up method:


DynaVap has a strong fanbase of dedicated users that praise the VapCap products for their ease of use and outstanding vapour quality.

Browse all VapCap models

VaporGenie (€ 49,50)

An all-time classic, the pipe-shaped VaporGenie has been around for almost 10 years. Featuring a clever (patented) filter system, the VaporGenie is heated by applying a flame to the filter (but without touching it!), transporting the hot air through your herb, allowing for sublime convection vaporization. While this requires a bit of a technique at first, many people swear by the elegant and affordable VaporGenie vapes and prefer it over modern day battery powered portables.

Note that the VaporGenie works best with a regular lighter.

Order the VaporGenie Classic

Vapman (€80)

The Vapman is a high quality, handmade Swiss pocket vaporizer that is best used with a torch lighter. The outer shell in an egg like appearance is hard and does well to protect the Vapman from any damage and shock. The internals are cleverly designed, applying a combination of convection and conduction for optimal vapour output.

Order the Vapman

Vaponic Plus (€79)

Vaponic Plus is a super small and stealthy, reliable and well thought-out glass portable vaporizer that is constructed using only the highest quality materials (borosilicate glass, stainless steel and medical grade silicone). As a result, the vapour of the Vaponic is extremely flavourful.

While there is a slight learning curve to get the most satisfying clouds of vapour from your Vaponic (mainly getting the right time to heat the glass piece), it is well worth investing the time to become acquainted with its use.

Order the Vaponic Plus

The classic version of the Vaponic (minus the wooden shell) is available for only €39.50.

New: Sticky Brick vaporizers

Another recent addition to the range of flame-powered vaporizers are the Sticky Brick vapes. Available in various models and wood types, these handmade wooden vapes are simple by design but incredibly effective and widely touted for the thick and flavourful (convection) vapour. Definitely worth checking out!

3 Super Easy to Use Portable Vaporizers

When it comes to portable vaporizers, the market has seen quite a bit of innovation over the last years. More and more tech is incorporated into today’s vaporizers, ranging from Bluetooth (app) connectivity to motion sensors. But is all this technology really necessary? According to a survey by online retailer Torontovaporizer, 51% of all surveyed vaporists believe that pre-set temperatures are enough to satisfy their vaporizer needs. Only 20% did not agree with this and 29% answered the survey with ‘neutral’. So while digital displays and precise (app-controlled) temperature controls seem to be big selling points, it seems most users generally seem content with only having pre-set temperatures at their disposal.

In this article we’ll discuss three of the best rated and most easy to use portable vaporizers that are available today. Not only are these portables an excellent choice for beginning vaporists, these vapes also rank well amongst medicinal users.

1. Mighty

According to many vaporizer enthusiasts, the Mighty (by Storz & Bickel) has been the undisputed king of portables since its release in 2014. Featuring two built-in high quality batteries, the Mighty is a portable powerhouse that packs enough power for multiple sessions. With a heat-up time of 90 seconds it is not considered particularly fast these days, but it makes up for that by excellent flavour and impressive vapour production. Featuring a combination of convection and conduction heating as well as a large capacity bowl, the Mighty has turned many long-time smokers into avid vaporizers.

How easy to use is it? The Mighty is operated by three buttons. The plus (+) and minus (-) buttons are located conveniently between the large LCD display. This display indicates the necessities: current and set temperature as well as the battery status.

Downsides? The battery capacity makes the Mighty somewhat bulky, and not exactly stealthy or pocket friendly. However, if you’re willing to take the size of this beast for granted, it is unlikely you’ll ever regret choosing for this high quality German engineered vape.

Order the Mighty

2. Boundless CF

The LA based Boundless company made an impressive debut in 2016, releasing numerous handhelds that were all received very well.

One of their best-selling, and also easiest to use units, is the CF. A powerful 80 watt heater ensures a very fast heat-up time of around 20 seconds. With a large capacity bowl, five pre-set temperature settings and an affordable price point (the CF retails for 129 euro), you can’t really go wrong with this compact, no-frills portable.

How easy to use is it? The CF’s swivel-like bowl opens in a similar fashion as the Mighty, making loading and unloading a breeze. Pressing the power button five times turns the power on, pressing the same button three times helps you select any of the five pre-set temperatures. The temperatures are indicated on the device itself with a LED and a mark, making it easy to see your current temperature. Charging is easy and fast; simply connect your CF to a micro-USB cable, the same type that is used by most smartphones.

Downsides? Most outer components from the CF are made from (rubberized and high quality) plastic, which does not give it a very premium look and feel.

Order the Boundless CF

3. Arizer Solo

The Solo by Arizer has been on the market for several years now, but remains the number one choice for many medicinal and recreational users alike. It offers a durable vaporizer in an incredibly solid housing while boasting decent battery life and excellent vapour production.

With the successor of the Solo, the Solo II, released in June 2017, the original Solo has dropped in price a bit, providing for an ever better deal.

How easy to use is it? The Arizer Solo features two buttons, which double as power button (hold both simultaneously to turn on the Solo) and temperature up/down buttons. LED’s show the current and set temperature on a scale of 1 to 7. To use, simply fill the bottom side of the glass mouthpiece with some herb, put it back on, and once heated up, enjoy delicious vapour!

The Solo is also very easy to maintain. The glass mouthpieces can be soaked in ISO-alcohol, and the bowl is easily cleaned by using a small brush or a quick rinse with an alcohol swab.

Any cons? The Solo is showing some signs of aging, mostly reflected in the heat-up time (which is close to 1 minute) and it’s bulky appearance, making it less than ideal for carrying around. The all-new Arizer Solo II tackles the battery problems by offering faster heat-up and longer battery life. It has an updated look, while still paying homage to the original. Although these are excellent improvements, the new Solo features a LED display can be a bit fiddly to work with, which is why we did not include it in this listing.
