There are all different kinds of materials that can be consumed using a vaporizer, and the type of device used will often depend on what material it will most commonly be used for. For those who prefer to vape tobacco and dry herbs, devices that are made specifically for that purpose are the best choice. There is generally a lot more control to be had in terms of temperature, which means having more control over vapor quality, flavor, and potency. If you want to have as much control as possible, you are probably going to have to invest in a higher priced unit, and for those who vape on a regular basis, that often means ditching the portable vaporizer for a desktop unit. These devices are certainly bigger, but they offer a level of control that you can’t get with a pen. One of the best devices in this category is the Arizer Extreme Q, so let’s take a closer look at what you get.
Getting to know the Arizer Extreme Q
Portability – At 7 inches tall and 6 inches around in diameter, this is not a device that you are going to be able to carry around with you. That said, this is designed to be used at home, and its size still makes it easy to tore.
Ease of Use – Your best bet here is to use the remote control that comes with the device. There are manual controls on the vaporizer itself, but they are trickier to use than the ones on the remote. Stick with the remote and this thing will be easy to use.
Power Source – As you would expect from vaporizers of this size and style, the device is powered by plugging it into a wall outlet.
Prep Time – Like other desktops vapes of this style, the Extreme Q works by filling balloons with vapor. At 2 minutes per balloon, it’s a little slower than some, but this is for thicker vapor. With a little tinkering, you can reduce that time.
Temperature Settings – The Extreme Q gives you great control over temperature, but one thing to pay attention to is that the temperature being displayed is for the chamber, not the actual materials.
Vapor Quality – The different temperature settings gives you real control over the quality of your vapor, and it is consistently good at any kind of heat.
Pricing – Sale price is set at $350, but you can find it for considerably less if you do a little shopping around. This is a great price for a great desktop vaporizer.
Guarantee – The 3-year warranty on the basic elements of the device is about standard, but the lifetime warranty on the ceramic chamber is absolutely outstanding. Portable Hookahs offers warranty on all of its products.
