The Air 2 is an upgraded version of the previous Arizer Air vaporizer model. It is a hybrid heating vape that can heat through conduction or convection heating methods depending on your preference. It features an upgraded replaceable battery system, full temperature spectrum with on-screen display, and improved airflow over the original Air vaporizer. Its improved airflow and temperature control have greatly improved the feel and use of this handy device and has made it an even more of a solid pick for on the go vaporizers than it already was. Much like the entire Arizer portable vaporizer lineup, the Air 2 vaporizer feels very solid in the hands and offers one of the best session experiences on the market, and also fits nicely in your pocket. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket for use out on the go and even comes with a nice carrying case for the stems. The Arizer Air 2 is the perfect vaporizer for someone wanting full control of their sessions, great taste, and replaceable batteries with the option to take it on the go easily and comfortably.
Here’s what’s included with the Air 2 Vaporizer:
Having an extra charged battery or two on hand is recommended, and can help to extend the battery life as far out as you need for any type of trip you may want to bring it on.
I’ve mentioned it a few times already but the biggest upgrades over the original Air are:
One of the biggest and most handy improvements, while being pretty small, is the Micro USB charging functionality. You no longer need the proprietary charger from the Air, and you can use any micro USB charger. The new battery lasts 25% longer and it also charges up much faster. The added full spectrum temperature control. Rather than only having about 5 preset temperatures to scroll through, you can now set the temperature down to a single degree. Since different strains have different optimal boiling points, this is a critical upgrade that makes the Air 2 a top of the line mini vaporizer that will get the best hits and cleanest vapor out of any strain.
In addition, previous models had some consistent complaints about pull resistance due to some issues with the design of the airflow. The new model, however, has an improved architecture that provides very easy and smooth pulls - provided that you maintain the upkeep on the device.
Some of the key benefits of the Air 2 vaporizer include:
First thing, give your Air 2 a full initial charge. After the battery is topped off, we recommend a burn-off to ensure there’s no residue left in the oven after assembly and shipping. Run your Air 2 up to full temperature, and let it heat until it it shuts off. For the most efficiency, you want to make sure to use a grinder and get the flower down to a medium grind that will let the herbs stay packed into the stem and give you even extraction, rather than completely grinding it down to powder. You should leave some chunks that are large enough so that nothing can get sucked through the holes in the glass screen. Any standard 4 piece grinder will suffice. The Air 2 will also readily handle bigger chunks without struggling or becoming clogged with debris. Feel free to try whole flowers if you like, although it is not recommended to use without some type of grinding.
To load the Air 2 scoop up some ground herb and pack the flower down lightly with your finger, being sure to not pack it to tightly so that airflow is blocked. The Air 2 takes about 70 to 90 seconds to get up to vaporizing temperatures. If you like the first hit thicker, but don’t mind a bit less flavor, put the loaded stem in the oven while it’s heating up. The extra time will let your herbs soak heat so that first inhale is thicker and more satisfying. If that’s still not thick enough for you, let the stem sit an extra 30 to 45 seconds after the unit has fully reached the set temperature.
However you decide to pack the stem, tamping is crucial to achieving the best taste and longevity out of your bowls. You want a small amount of space between the herbs and the bottom edge of the stem so that airflow can circulate properly. Any herb not stamped below the edge of the glass can touch the bottom of the oven. Not only will it give your vapor a burnt and sour taste, but the herbs can stick to the oven and cause a hard to clean up mess.
The Air 2 is capable of pumping out big, powerful clouds - and all you have to do is pack your bowls lightly and take a big pull. While this is tempting, it can burn through your flower too quickly and halt your ability to have longer sessions of consistently great tasting hits. With plenty of room for air to flow through the herbs, you’ll find you can thoroughly roast a full oven without stirring and still have the satisfaction of blowing big clouds.
But the Air 2’s versatility comes from its ability to also sip lightly. Try to pack more into the oven, push it down tightly, and then take short, light puffs for a longer and better tasting session. When taking these light hits, remember to stir and re-tamp the herbs once or twice to ensure you get every last bit.
Last but not least, always make sure that you have the mouthpiece in place before taking any hits, or you will risk sucking in some tasty treats into your mouth to chew on.
Cleaning your Arizer is not a very hard process, but is nonetheless very important for keeping your hits tasting great and ensuring longevity with your piece.
What you’ll need:
Start with the oven:
Even though the herbs are loaded in the stem, the oven itself will start to accumulate bits of vaped herb over time. Dip a cotton swab in the alcohol, shake out any excess, flip your Air II upside down to make sure nothing drips down to the heating element and give the oven a swabbing. Let it dry well, and then do a burnoff. A burnoff, as we explained, is simply setting it to a high temperature and letting the unit burn off any residue that may remain inside the piece.
The Arizer Air 2 Vaporizer glass stems are the easiest portions of the entire setup to clean. Simply soak them in isopropyl alcohol for an hour or two with some salt, then rinse them off in hot water until they are as clean as desired. Depending on how long its been since you have cleaned, this may take a few tries. You can give them a shake, repeat this process a few times, or just let the stems soak in ISO overnight. If you’re using a screen in your stem then you can pop it out and place it in the alcohol as well. Make sure everything is completely dry before you reassemble the pieces back together.
The Arizer Air II is the perfect vaporizer for newcomers and advanced users. It’s fairly easy to load and the maintenance isn’t all that bad as long as you clean it periodically and don’t neglect and excess debris that may accumulate around the oven. The vapor quality is top notch as well, and along with the precision temperature control and high quality airflow chambers, you will not be disappointed with the potency. The replaceable battery system makes it easy to keep the sessions rolling while out on the go and the full temp spectrum and custom session features give you complete control over your vape sessions. Last but not least, the Air 2 comes with a two-year manufacturer warranty.
Overall, the Air 2 is a great personal vapethat has improved on critical factors such as battery life and smooth air travel through the hardware. If you are looking for a great tasting vape that can be taken on the go, the Air 2 is the perfect mid size vape.
