Arizer Solo II

I'm just here to write, I love this vape.

Sure, there's a lot of techniques you can use to make it better and there are technical arguments about if or that choice by the manufacturer works. But, this is a low maintenance work-horse that can be a daily driver for most anyone's needs.

Think of it like a cannabis "beer". It's a portable, but I don't use it to take it to inaccessible places. I'll fill the stem, heat it up and go out back and water the plants all while sipping at the stem.

Huge clouds, small clouds or whatever, you can get a good extraction out of your flower and not spend a ton of time cleaning afterwards. At worst, if you were really particular, you just drop the stem into some ISO when done and rinse it before using again.

If I were to change it at all, I might like a little clock/timer that ticks down to shut-off on the face. Especially if you step the vape when using, it's nice to know where you are in time to kick up the heat or to stir if you really want the clouds.
Great minds think....
I will second your suggested change as a heat stepper upper Solo II vaper. I can’t think of any shortcomings (hell, I’m not biased) but having a “countdown timer” would be a very useful upgrade. Any readers out there that are Arizer employees? Wouldn’t it be awesome if it was just a matter of upgrading your Solo II firmware?
Cheers, and

It should be possible with some level of software upgrade, but it can't be done 'in the field'. That is at the least you'd have to send your unit in (and no doubt pay for it, since the Solo II you now own is just what the purchase contract called for). Unlike some other vapes, Solo doesn't have a USB port, right? Only a 12 Volt DC one.

A nice feature to consider for Solo III?

Regards to all.

What size screens are the right size for the solo 2 stem? 0.5”?
If you want them to lay flat. Not a good plan, IMO. Flat they foul 'right off'. If you want a slight dome, go with 5/8 inch. Fine ones are easier to bend and fit, but medium runs longer before needing cleaning. Since they are so cheap, I used to store the dirty ones until I had enough to make cleaning them (by 'flaming') more productive. Since switching to the preformed ones on EBay (which are very tough), I went to fishing them out with a bent safety pin tip (heat it until it glows and the steel is easy to bend) and flaming them, brushing the ash off, and putting them back in (takes under a minute).

BTW. the round end of a 'sharpie' pen is a great tool for making the dome

Just as I think my VAS is under control, you ring the bell like Pavlov’s dogs with the mention of a Solo III, and I’m salivating!
Maybe a countdown timer with digits would take up too much real estate on the Solo III digital display. A “pie” icon with slices that disappear as the timer counts down?
Arizer?

I'm not sure that's true. F2 and EDGE seem to do this with little effort on a smaller display? There, they drop the 'target temperature' window once it's heated up (does nothing useful at that point) and substitute the timer counting down the session. They even 'flash' the display at the very end (15 seconds?), a nice feature that draws your attention to the pending end of session.

You could also, for instance, 'time share' with the battery level? Display each level and time for a few seconds each alternately,

Lots of possibilities to look forward to.....

Regards to all.

Please read again, it's 'used' (past tense), I currently use the preformed ones. The last time I bought flat screens was five years back?

Searching for "5/8 screens" gets over a dozen sellers of SS ones (avoid brass), I would expect any to work fine. Pick the price, quantity and delivery that suits?

This is what I use instead now, if that's what you're asking.......


But you should know that, I posed that link a week or two back on this thread, and a month or two before that.

And a few months before:

And, of course, a lot more times on the OG Solo thread, Air, etc.

Not sure what I misunderstood by your statement.

“Since switching to the preformed ones on EBay”

You switched to preformed ones which you buy off eBay, hence why I asked about which ones you were talking about.

The subject was 'what size flat screens do you use?", right? You didn't make it clear enough you'd changed the subject, and the quote you cited from me was about flat screens. I hope you can see how I might not have understood?

The answer you evidently wanted, where on EBay the domed screens come from, remains the same as a few weeks back..........

You're welcome.
