Arizer Go (ArGo) Review – Most Compact Arizer Vaporizer
Canadian vaporizer manufacturer Arizer recently put out a brand new, intriguing dry herb portable vape called the ArGo a combination of two words Arizer & Go specifically designed for on the go vapers. It’s so new, many retail stores and online vape specialty sites don’t even carry it yet. We’ve reviewed the Arizer Air 2 in the past, and we were overall impressed by it. The ArGo is extremely compact and discreet, one of the stealthiest portable vaporizers you can buy. Put that extreme portability together with precision temperature controls, a vapor pathway made entirely of glass for optimal flavor and smoothness – and you just might have yourself a winner. But, with a price tag of around $315, the ArGo isn’t exactly the cheapest vape you can buy. Is the cost worth it for the Arizer ArGo? Is it the vaporizer for you? Read on to find out more.
ArGo’s Battery Life
This unit comes with an 18650 battery that is exchangeable and removable. For such a tiny unit, the battery life is pretty strong and impressive. We were able to get around 90 minutes of continuous vape time with the ArGo. Once the unit has been charging for about fifteen minutes, you can vape while it’s charging up. You can charge the ArGo with a USB or a power adapter; both come with the unit out of the box when you buy it.
Using the Arizer ArGo Portable Vaporizer
The ArGo has to be one of the lowest maintenance portable vaporizers we’ve ever seen. This unit really only needs to be cleaned every once in a while, or perhaps once every week if you’re a heavy vape user. The heating element is made from both steel and ceramic. The path that the vapor travels down, as previously stated, is made entirely of glass. The exterior encasing of the unit is made of durable plastic and metal. The dimensions of the Arizer ArGo portable vaporizer are 83 mm x 52 mm x 24 mm, or 3.2 in x 2.0 in x .94 in. The bowl size for your dry herbs is about fifteen millimeters deep which isn’t the largest bowl on the market. The ArGo weighs about 97 grams.
The ArGo uses a hybrid of both conduction and convection heating. Because of its compact nature, the ArGo tends to lean more heavily on conduction heating at first, with convection rounding out sessions and heating your dry herbs as evenly as possible. The temperature controls are about as precision as they can get in the vape game today.
The ArGo’s precision temperature controls show up on an OLED screen that is simple to use and understand. The brightness of the screen can be low, medium or high, which is a nice feature that you don’t find on all portable vaporizers. You can pick a temperature between 50 and 200 degrees Celsius (122-428 Fahrenheit). The ArGo’s controls are easily adjusted by using either 1 degree or 10-degree temperature increments.
In addition to the adjustable screen brightness and precision temperature controls, you can also control the loudness of the alarm (low, medium, high) and select a shut-off time that is best for the way you personally vape – between five to fifteen minutes at 1 minute increments.
ArGo’s Vapor Quality
The Arizer ArGo delivers what many dry herb vape lovers consider to be some of the best in the business – at any size. This remarkable vapor quality is a huge selling point for this unit. The all glass vapor pathway delivers tokes that are cool and smooth almost every time. The last hit, often known as “the best hit” can taste a bit smoky, but that is common for just about all vaporizers. The ArGo is so compact that it can get hot during an extended vape session, so just be aware of that. It’s not a huge deal for most users, but can be an issue for inexperienced vape owners.
What Comes With the Arizer ArGo?
Right out of the box, you get the micro-heater, the battery, a USB charger and power adapter, two glass stems, two stem caps that are made from silicone, four filter screens and a stirring tool. There’s even a belt-clip carrying case if you’re that serious about taking your vape with you everywhere you go that you want it on your belt at all times.
The ArGo currently only comes in black, but there is a decent chance that Arizer will release ArGo models in other colors as the unit gains more popularity. While the heater of the ArGo does come with a lifetime warranty, that of a 2-year warranty only backs the rest of the unit. This warranty falls considerably shorter than a lot of other vaporizers available on the market today.
- The ArGo is one of the most portable and discreet portable vaporizers on the market today.
- The vapor flow pathway is made entirely of glass, which delivers deliciously smooth, tasty tokes on almost every hit. Already considered to deliver some of the best vapor hits of any portable vaporizer.
- There is a protective top that you can pop out that will shield the glass mouthpiece of the ArGo while you’re on the go doing outdoor activities like biking, trail hiking, or skiing.
- There is little need for cleaning the ArGo too often, making it one of the lowest maintenance portable vaporizers you can buy.
- The ArGo’s two-year warranty falls short of its competitors and leaves a decent amount to be desired.
- Because of its extremely compact design, the ArGo tends to get really hot after a few hits. While the more experienced toker will know to just put the unit down for a few minutes before hitting it again, newbies might panic at first if they don’t know any better.
- Only comes in one color – black.
