Arizer Argo: Product Review

Arizer Argo: Product Review

The Arizer ArGo vaporizer is the latest innovative vape from Canadian producer, Arizer. This company’s previous experience making vape systems speaks through the sleek and minimalist design.

This vape uses a hybrid heating system which makes the ArGo perfectly efficient at delivering a smooth vapor pull through each use. Made out of extremely durable rubber and metal, the ArGo can be easily packed up without a worry.

Even with its compact size, the ArGo utilizes a retractable borosilicate glass vapor path. All it takes is a push of the button on the back of the ArGo and the glass mouthpiece is securely held within the vape itself – greatly reducing the constant worry of breaking your mouthpieces.

The sheer amount of customer submitted reviews online stand as a great example of the reliability and lifespan of the ArGo vaporizer. As many experience at the beginning of a relationship with their new vape, the ArGo can present some maintenance difficulties at first. If you apply patience and some regular cleaning, the heating element and vaporizer will turn out to be one of your more reliable smoking tools.

Arizer is honest at communicating with their customers the range of use for their product. They give their customers a visual grasp of the ArGo through some stand-out images and informational videos on their website for the straight facts of the vape.

argo vaporizer

The ArGo vaporizer lives up to their slogan of the device: “Ready, set, go!”. Everything you need to start smoking on-the-go comes in the box. It includes a charger, battery and everything you need to keep you ready to get vaping.

What stands out is that the Arizer ArGo also comes with a hiking kit which is neatly designed to fit all of your components in one small package. This feature is definitely unique in terms of vaporizer accessories as all your kit and storage for the device is already handled for you.

Once you get your hands on your first ArGo, you shouldn’t have to purchase any extras. Well, except for the occasional borosilicate pipes because we all know what unforeseen circumstances can arise.

Superior portability and unique features

The packaging and amount of accessories that come with the ArGo shows that Arizer has thought about everything their customer will need. This sleek hand-held design comes packed with stem caps and an additional borosilicate glass vapor path for a variety of uses.

The ArGo vaporizer is also able to offer this same flexibility for your vaping experience with the multiple temperature options of this device. Combined with its easy cleaning and maintenance, this makes for a less steep entry curve when compared to other portable vapes.

Even better, the battery life on this device is about 90 minutes. This should give you enough time to choose the type of session you want for the day. The ArGo was also designed with an easily interchangeable battery slot. This feature alone opens the ArGo vaporizer to even the most prepared users.

The number of customization options and accessories of the Arizer ArGo really do let this vaporizer fit the needs of any user.

Key qualities

Conduction and Convection

The Arizer ArGo is unique in that it uses both convection and conduction heating systems for vaporizing your herb. This does require about one minute of heat-up time, but it is well worth it for the reliability of this low-maintenance heating system. If treated with patience and used with care, the ArGo should be able to go without any sort of replacement to your heating system for years.

Low Maintenance and Easy to Clean

Remember that retractable vapor path made of borosilicate glass? It serves a great double purpose as an easy-to-clean maintenance method. The extremely compact design of the ArGo means you simply need to clean the internal section where the vapor path is physically inserted, and the vapor path itself. Maintenance can be performed very quickly and easily.

Designed for Dry Product

Arizer has created this vape primarily for use with ground herb. Although the heating elements reach appropriate temperatures for vaping concentrates, be aware that it could clog and ultimately damage your heating element.

An experienced concentrate smoker would be able to patiently balance the right amount of concentrate to not damage the heating system with enough experimenting. That said, it is generally recommended to stick to the dry stuff if you are taking advantage of the extended lifespan of the ArGo.

Is the Arizer ArGo for me?

Each session had by a smoker is a different experience and sometimes, we just want to have some options. This can apply to the various features of the ArGo as well as its bowl capacity. The Arizer ArGo can hold approximately 0.15 grams in each bowl which means you have enough for an extended break or a quick sesh.

The previous Arizer products — the Extreme-Q desktop vaporizer, Arizer Air, Air 2, Solo and Solo 2 — are perfect for experienced vapers. But what makes the ArGo different is it’s defining portability, custom temperatures, smooth vape quality and a draw resistance that remains consistent with maintenance.

It can be a pretty daunting experience getting into vaping. You could be new to vaporizers or just buying a new one. Either way, learning all your new settings and how to handle the device can be challenging.

The Arizer ArGo has conquered this learning curve through the simplicity of its design. The ArGo could be a gift for a friend just getting into more advanced ways of smoking, or it could be a great asset to the most O.G. smoker in your crew.

We recommend it for anyone who is interested in finding a more discreet and modern way of smoking on-the-go.
