The Arizer ArGo is a portable conduction/convection hybrid vaporizer. It’s made by the Canadian company Arizer Tech which also makes the Arizer Air, Air 2, Solo, Solo 2 and the Extreme-Q desktop vaporizer.
The ArGo Vaporizer is extremely compact, features a replaceable battery system and offers a full temp spectrum.
The only downsides are the short vapor path creates some warmer temps and the draw resistance ramps up after a few sessions if you don’t clean it out.
After a couple months of testing, I can honestly say that this is one of the best portable vaporizers to be released in the last couple years. It has basically everything you could want in a vaporizer with only minor downsides.
Heating – The Arizer GO uses a convection/conduction hybrid heating method. It’s basically the same as the Air 2 and the Solo 2. The heat up time (60 seconds) is a bit slower than I would prefer, especially if I’m trying to get in a quick session but it’s not bad in the scheme of things. Most portable vaporizers these days are in the 30-second pre-heat range and something like the Pax 3 will heat up in around 15-20 seconds.
Vapor Path – While the stems can be an annoyance at times, they are also great for smooth, flavorful rips. I also prefer the neutral taste and feel of glass stem over plastic which most other portables use. I really enjoy the taste and vapor production from the Arizer units. Again, this unit (Arizer ArGo) may produce slightly warmer temps over the Air 2 and Solo 2 because of the shorter vapor path but you can pick up the extended mouthpiece if needed.
Temp Options – The ArGo vape offers a full temp range from 122F – 428F (50C – 220C) that is fully customizable. The temp buttons are located directly on the device and easy to change. The temp is also easy to read but unfortunately, this device does NOT come with haptic feedback which would have been a nice addition.
