    How?

    Until then SOLO on!

    @VapeHeadz I USE to travel a lot?
    My son surfed the world over. (OZ included both sides many times)
    South Africa is cool too. (snarkier than OZ?)
    Hawaii just punch them in the nose!
    English 70% + Dutch 30% (mom) + Irish 70% + German 30% (dad) =
    CIVILIZED (so I thought?)

    SOLO time

    No alcohol....
    No pharmaceutical medication...
    No bleached food...
    Plenty of high quality cannabis.... (some in solo)
    And possibly misguided optimism.....

    It's going ok I think....i still feel 16, and look......

    I believe ejuice is the new asbestos....
    I think smoking huge joints is safer....

    I'm rediscovering the solo lately...
    The vapcap stole my attention away for so long, I forgot how nice a tasty sipping session is.....
    Edit:- and I forgot you can get massive clouds if you rip it.....

    yeah I'm using a vapcap too instead of a solo with the thought of doing less weed. The vapcap is not bad but trying to get it done when you're in an area with just a pinch of wind it becomes so much a hassle. And all that reheating and doing, eh.

    And I use that shit outdoors and not indoor in a area where this portable vape would work way better.

    Miss you solo <3

    I'm ok with the vapcap as a quick high....
    At work, I can be done within a minute, and that's valuable to me....
    The solo just wouldnt do for me there, it's too slow....

    But lately I've found it really nice to just veg out holding a solo.... it's a real lazy vape...
    Not like the evo, where I have to sit up.....

    I like the Solo 12 minute session time for veggin out. Sometimes I forget to take the next hit right away but with 12 minutes it OK to forget every now and then.

    I remember the days when I was doing solo all day long, only stopping to recharge (1 unit only), like around 4pm I managed to let fresh batches go dark without drawing once in the 12 min time. Solo with convection style would be so uber.

    I used my Solo the other day. I had a dentist appt where I hate how long it takes laying back in the chair. It was right after work and didn't have a chance to medicate. I got my Solo out and had about an 8 min session. Afterwards I felt relaxed and ready for the hour long session with the orthodontist and the dentist.

    Luckily I live fairly close to the dentist office. I felt fine to drive afterwards.

    Portability comes in handy. It's Sunday - have a great rest of your weekend.

    Sunday, the holiest of working days, and my solo and my pinnacle are an integral part of the routine. I set up a little notebook computer and speakers and just let the music rip while I clean up the bar. Today Mike Bloomfield is helping me.

    The Solo has been a lifesaver for me in the middle of the night with pain and anxiety. Most of the time it just takes a heavy indica and a 12 min or less session. The Solo will turn off my itself after 12 min, if I forget to turn it off. To me the 12 min is about perfect for timing - 10 min not long enough, 20 min too long.

    My older model Solo is 3 1/2 years old and the other two (one I gifted to my bro) are going strong after almost 3 years. I bought 2 more after the revision, whenever that was - 2014? They could use another battery. They get about 4 - 12 min sessions now on a full battery.

    I use mine in the middle of the night too, but because I'm using a bubbler it means sitting up, so sometimes I'll get a Drambuie on the rocks and catch a little tv with a couple of bowls. I'm taking lots of breaks now because I have to mop floors and my knee and back are giving me trouble, but the solo makes it more bearable.
    And Etta James, she makes it a little better too. :)

    I am thankful for my ancestors being sent here, it's all worked out well. The sun, beaches, woman and buds are pretty damn fine over here mate.

    I know right...
    We send all our convicts to a far away land, and they make that land a better place than they came from...
    I have much respect for how your nation deals with things...
    Not a spineless, sniveling, laughing stock of the world, like my country....

    On another note, is anyone expecting the solo to be discontinued after the new arises portable release....???

    Jeez yeah!
    If those last pictures are not fake, and Solo 2 is a thing, then possibly?
    But if it's a different model they could keep the Solo.
    With the Northern Lights release and accompanying promotional write up, it's obvious they see people still loving the device.
    Possibly much more so than day one vapes that are still being sold by other companies.
    Although some, like the Pax 1 are no longer sold so your point is very valid!

    It doesn't make sense to drop a popular product that is selling well. If they have a new model that works better, they will likely charge a bit more for it, and keep the Solo in the stores. It isn't like a fashion item that's either in vogue or out. Chevy makes Corvettes, but they still sell the Impala.

    For me the weak point (BOTTLE-NECK) is the BATTERIES?
    I have SOLO so OLD by today's technological standards: PC 's are outdated in 4 months.
    Several ATOMIZERS per month?

    The latest greatest batteries made into a decent battery pack in a old SOLO is the calling!

    If you want it now just buy the white one.
    I want a WHITE ONE (I think it's called NL?)

    It can be a complex issue for sure. If the new model is cheaper to make (less labor per unit or lower skill requirements) that can play a big factor. The usual idea is to phase out the old in such cases, and we see no sign of that? How much it would impact sales of a similar product is a judgement call 'made at the top' often, we do have examples of similar analog and digital table top vapes, each with their followings.

    Then again, Arizer is smart and knows it all and is unlikely to have invested the money without assurances of more features or lower cost. Maybe.

    Over all that is the new car thing. Solo is not about to wear out and need replacement soon, so you need to get folks with otherwise fine cars (to bring Chevy back into this.....) buy a new one instead. Also a common enough mind set amongst the suits. A whole lot of us will buy one on spec alone.

    One way to find out for sure........

    Well if I see the volcano classic next to the digit for almost the same 380€ as ten years ago, I don't think cancelling the solo is mandatory.

    Will be nice if they can make the new version compatible with the old stems....

    But not a deal breaker....

    It would take a lot to put me off this one...
    I have a lot of love for arizer...
    If really fallen back in love with my solo again...
    So much cleaner and tastier than the vapcap...

    And even the eq has been making a rare appearance in the vape lineup....

    The NLE is yesterday's news, nobody wants white anymore. the latest trend is PINK, and people will do almost anything to get one!

    So, let me get this straight.....'Pink is the new White'?

    Not surprising, really.

    I'm a big fan of the SOLO!

    I like FUNCTION.

    SOLO = FUNCTION
    I will make a new battery pack with some HIGH-END ones.

    The ARISER Q I'll put back in rotation.
    Thank's @kellya86 (good ideal) the fan is pretty cool!

    Basic unit however I like it?

    Be = CIVILIZED = WHATEVER BRINGS U BLISS?

    The WHITE one is cool because of the WHITE face.
    Too bad they don't have PINK?

    Marketing fucked the color choices?
    Color has no gender!

    PINK, PURPLE, MAGENTA = marketing messed with these colors? (light blue)

    BLACK, WHITE, SILVER = 20 years ago! (DEAL WITH IT!)
