Here are some instructions you can follow while using your Arizer Solo Vaporizer!

Step 1: Turn on the Solo

To turn on the unit press both the up and down buttons for a few seconds.  The unit will beep and then begin to heat up.  The sound function can be turned on and off by powering on the unit and holding down the up button for approx three seconds.

Step 2: First Use Instructions

The solo comes with two different tubes: a bent one and a straight one.  If this is your first time using the Solo you might find that the tube doesn’t fit.   This isn’t because it’s too big but because the unit is new, you will need to “break in” the seal.  Do this by heating up the solo to max temperature. Straight out of the box, we recommend heating it up for at least 7 mins to burn off any residue left from manufacturing.  Then take your tube and align it straight and insert it into the seal.    You will only need to do this once.  These glass tubes are hand made and some vary in size slightly.  Having a tube fit too snugly or too loose does not affect vaping.  Remove the tube and then power down to allow the unit to cool to prepare for the next step.

Step 3:  Select a Temperature

Level 1 – 50C/ 122F

Level 2 – 185C/ 365F

Level 3 – 190C/ 374F

Level 4 – 195C/ 383F

Level 5 – 200C/ 392F

Level 6 – 205C/ 401F

Level 7 – 210C/ 410F

Finding your perfect temperature is a matter of desire and preference.  A higher temperature produces a thicker vapour, lower produces a lighter vapour.  At any point if you get a thick cloud, or if your product burns be sure to turn down the temperature to ensure you are vaping and not smoking.  You will find that drier product has a lower vaping temperature, and moist product a higher temperature.

Step 4: Pack the Solo 

Take one of the Solo tubes and pack with ground product. It is required that you grind up product to ensure optimum surface area, but be sure to not grind the herb up too finely.   Doing this will prevent the product from falling through the tube, as well as not falling in the unit itself.   This way you wont need to clean the device that often. Pack bowl, but be sure to not pack too tightly to allow airflow to come through.  When the Solo is at desired temperature turn the unit upside down and insert the packed tube into the unit, so that the product does not fall out.   Turn the device over and begin next step.

Step 5: Begin Use

Wait a couple of seconds and then begin to slowly inhale.  Inhaling slowly maintains a good vapour temperature, as well prevents product from getting pulled into the tube.  You may need to adjust the temperature, turning it down as you finish the bowl.

Step 6: End Session

When you are finished turn the unit off, and remember to turn the unit upside down to pull out the tube.  Remember the tube and the heating element will be hot. It is recommended that you clean out the heating unit after it is cooled to cut down on future cleaning.  This can be done with a pipe cleaner or a Q-Tip.  Tap out used product, being careful with the glass tube. You might consider getting a Pulsar Tap Tray or something similar such as a silicone ashtray to tap out product without risk of breaking the glass tube.   Be sure to cap the heating element with the cap attached to the element to stop dust and other materials from getting into the element.

Other Tips and Notes:

▪    The Solo Vaporizer has a built-in automatic shut off safety setting after 12 minutes of idle time. To reactivate the temperature, simply turn it back on and press the “Downward Arrow” Button for a couple of seconds to return to the desired temperature level.

▪    The Solo offers over 1-2 hours of continuous use per full charge, and four hours time period is required for the Solo to charge completely.

▪    Whenever possible try to let your Solo charge to full capacity in between use. A full battery will go much further than one that is periodically recharged for short periods of time.

▪     Be sure to turn off your Solo  right away if taking a break “mid-bowl”. Even though the Solo has an automatic shut-off safety feature if you leave it on even just for a few minutes it will continue to vaporize your material and cause it to taste stale when you resume use. Despite what many self-professed “vaporizer experts” online may claim, when done right, no quality vaporizer will ever result in a “burnt popcorn” type taste when used correctly.
