The next iteration of the highly successful Arizer Air from Arizer, the Arizer Air 2 maintains the same great quality I’ve come to expect from Arizer, while introducing a wealth of welcome new upgrades. However, in order to keep your Air 2 operating at peak capacity, its important to make sure you follow some important tips or risk suffering from a less than optimal vaping experience. With my years of vape experience, I’ve managed to compile a handy list of helpful tips which if followed will ensure that you get the most from your Air 2 portable vaporizer!
Grind Your Cannabis For Optimal Airflow
In order to keep your draws at an ideal resistance, its important to use finely ground loose leaf cannabis and not unground chunks which can inhibit airflow causing a tight draw and uneven vaporization. I have had success using a Space Case 4 Piece Grinder, and aside from doing an excellent job grinding plant matter, the handy pollen screen allows you to collect and store kief for use at a later date. Once I have a decent amount of kief saved up, I love to mix some in with my ground loose leaf and have a stronger than normal vape session!
Moreover, the Air 2 is not designed to vape concentrates such as wax and shatter, so I recommend using a vape pen or other vaporizer for all your concentrate needs. However, I have had success with adding hash to my Air 2 bowls, but you need to pay special attention as to how to load it so that you don’t end up creating a mess. For optimal results, I suggest you break your hash up into small chunks and sandwich it in between a layer of finely ground loose leaf cannabis. The loose leaf will trap the hash in between the layers, making sure that it doesn’t liquefy and travel up your mouthpiece.
Clean Your Device Regularly
As with any vaporizer, residue will build up on your Air 2, especially in the glass vapor path, and in order to maintain good airflow and a great taste, it is essential that you clean your device on a regular basis. How often you clean your mouthpiece depends on how often you find yourself vaping, but a good rule of thumb is to give your Air 2’s mouthpiece a thorough cleaning once a week by soaking it in a solution of high proof grain alcohol and removing any excess residue with a small brush. Don’t forget that the residue is a potent concentrated form of cannabis oil, and you can even put this oil to use by following my guide here by boiling milk as opposed to cleaning with grain alcohol!
Use High Quality Batteries
The Air 2 comes with a 2000mAH 18650 battery which is a great start, but over time (and frequent use), you may find your battery’s maximum capacity start to diminish over time. Fortunately the Air 2 uses replaceable batteries, and so you can purchase additional 18650 batteries (at various capacities) from a reputable retailer (I recommend using these high quality Sony batteries available here from Amazon). Moreover, if you plan on using multiple batteries and swapping them out, I recommend purchasing a smart battery charger such as the Nitecore Intellicharge.
By following these three simple tips, you can expect to keep your Arizer Air 2 in tip top shape and will be able to enjoy your device years down the line! If you have any tips of your own, feel free to share them with us in the comments!
