    Hey all, just thought I'd make a quick mention that Arizer has released a new vaporizer called the Extreme-Q. It will be widely available soon.

    I also want to rant and rave about how excellent this new vape is, but I'll let you all be the judges. Check it out, then let me know what you think and feel free to ask any questions. I'll check back often and do my best to answer all inquiries.

    That thing looks awesome, so other than outward looks what else did arizer change on the extreme?

    The most significant change is the fan. The Q in Extreme-Q stands for quiet! Still with 3 fan speeds, the Extreme-Q is much quieter on its fastest fan speed than the Extreme is on its slowest fan speed. Anyone who has filled balloons with the Extreme while trying to watch television or a movie knows that the high pitch of the fan can interfere with the decibel level of a room, often requiring the volume of the TV to be turned up. This is no longer an issue with the Extreme-Q. After testing out a couple units I have come to realize it is so quiet I sometimes forget I started filling a balloon!! Other changes include an all-Canadian LCD, an improved airflow (still all glass), and a reinforced internal structure to minimize potential for damage to the unit.

    So this is a separate product and the older style will continue to be produced?

    added photos/info to the OP.

    Yes the Extreme-Q is a bit shorter than the Extreme. I believe that the Extreme will be phased out of production, though I am not aware of the time line for this to happen.

    Very swish indeed, if only i was in the market... Strangely when i was in town the other week i couldve sworn i saw an extreme with a black finish to the display like that. However i think it was later discarded as a trick of the lighting.

    You say the airflow is improved too, care to explain how so? and youre saying its stronger, this is basically perfect for my purposes - you read my mind. One of these days i swear ill get my grubby mits on one.

    Oh yea, does the reinforcement have any say on how the heater functions? Im guessing not really

    Yea they seem a good choice for american customers, though they dont so much cater for the canadians among us.

    By improved airflow I mean to say that the airflow has been tweaked for optimal performance whether using the whip or the balloon system. The reinforced internal components does not affect the performance of the heater or the unit, rather was a set towards reducing the number of repairs on heater covers.

    260 C or 500 F is the max temp on the Extreme-Q

    Steve at Arizer sent me a single-sheet pdf brochure about the Q. There are several photos, and it says,

    New Quiet Fan.
    New Midnight Chrome Finish.
    Cooler, more compact Design.
    Now with THREE Year Warranty.
    New clear view LCD Screen.
    Now with fast heat ceramic heating.
    Precise temperature control, now with triple heat sensors.
    Redesigned with Solid State Circuitry.
    50% more energy efficient.
    SAME (Introductory) PRICE !

    The quietest fan powered vape on the market. 77% Quieter than our previous version.


    Dimensions are not listed. The conical metal portion appears to be a bit shorter than the Extreme -- the ridges that wrap around the upper portion of the cone on the Extreme don't show on the photo of the Q, giving the impression that the top bit of the cone has been truncated. Or he chose to remove them for aesthetic or design reasons.

    You bet. I'm-a git me one a-them 'cause the fan in the Extreme is too darn noisy for generic room scenting usage.

    This vape looks really good.

    Def. more aesthetically pleasing, no longer that big-tin mug look.

    Spiral might be getting a new toy 2010. :D

    I was thinking the opposite. The Extreme's stainless steel and black polymer design allows it to blend in in the kitchen next to the stainless coffee pot and toaster. The new "Midnight Chrome" look might make it more noticeable. We will see.

    Yeah -- big directly-heated triodes. :lol:

    And before that, coal.

    A product can evolve incrementally. Don't need to add tail fins to a car to make it a better car.

    It 'looks' just about the same yah, true. But, for example with 3 heat sensors as opposed to (I don't know how many), it might be more accurate for controlling what you get out of your herb. And at the moment, it doesn't cost more. So, if it is in fact quieter, better heater, then I think it is worthwhile. And for someone who does not have an extreme (me) it represents a good purchase.
