Who’s the Arizer Air MAX best for?
The Air MAX by Arizer was a big step forward for portable vaporizers when it was released in April 2022. With an inclusive kit, a long-lasting and swappable 26650 battery, and overall improved features, it’s no wonder it’s become a fan-favorite for those looking for relaxed and consistent dry herb sessions.
Improved Vapor Quality
Using the same glass stem design as previous editions, the Air Max by Arizer now features an upgraded ceramic heater with slightly larger air intake ports.
With a slightly larger heating element, you’ll have faster heat-up times that average around 60 seconds down from 90 seconds on the Arizer Air 2. Because of the larger heating element, the bowl will also lose less temperature during large inhales. Compared to something like the Mighty+ where you can visibly see the temperature drop during inhales, on the Air Max you’ll be able to take faster back-to-back hits without any drop in vapor quality. This is why the vaping community has dubbed the Air Max a ‘Ripper, not a Sipper’.
With the larger air intake ports, as well as better angled air ports on the stainless steel oven, you’ll have much-improved airflow and reduced draw restriction. In other words, the Air Max has really cranked up the convection side of the unit’s THC extraction as the hot air passes through your dry herb for faster overall sessions.
Over two hours of battery life
With the upgrade to a 5000mAh battery, you’ll be able to get up to 2 hours and 15 minutes of battery life. With options to either swap the battery or utilize pass-through charging, there is a lot of versatility to keep the party going while you’re out on the go. As well, with the new USB-C charging port, you’ll spend much less charging time, down to around two hours compared to three hours on previous models.
Upgraded User Interface
With the classic OLED user interface screen, you’ll be able to adjust a variety of settings including screen brightness, sound settings, screen inversion for bong use, and dark mode. In dark mode, you can choose to boot to a mode with a very minimalist screen that will use shapes for you to navigate settings and your session very discreetly – perfect for walking your dog at night.
Bong Compatible out of the Box
With the 14mm water pipe adapter included in the kit and automatic screen inversion when the Air Max is placed upside down, using your Arizer with vaporizer bongs and bubblers have never been easier. Improve your vapor quality right out of the box! Our personal recommendation would be to pair the 14mm WPA with the Mega Globe Whip Bubbler for an at-home hookah setup.
How the Air MAX works
As with all Arizer glass stem mouthpieces, all you’ll need to do is fill the bottom part of the mouthpiece with 0.2g of a medium grinded dry herb. After that, press and hold the M and + buttons until the countdown timer has finished, and then set the temperature. After about sixty seconds, your Air Max will be ready to inhale from, giving you vapor production for between 2-6 minutes on average.

With the included aromatherapy dish, you’ll be able to load in your favorite botanicals into the bowl and add a lovely scent to any room. Our personal favorite is orange peels!
Two Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
With a two year warranty on the device, and a lifetime warranty on the ceramic heating element, you’re in good hands with Arizer. We have only had a problem with one Arizer Air MAX we’ve sold our of the hundreds that we’ve sold since April 2022, and it was replaced under warranty!

This is it. Trust me, I’ve been around the block as an old head.

Included 14mm wpa is a nice addition the Arizer lineup along with USB-C and a battery improvement. Heating time is slower than the Solo 2 but this produces vapor much faster. Good shipping and communication from Tools420 as a vendor. I’d buy from them again.

It’s been an overall decent upgrade from the Air 2, but overall is incredibly similar to the Solo 2 and previous iterations. The heater is improved but the airflow is slightly more restricted which might not be the best for medicinal users. With the massive 5000mAh swappable battery, you don’t really have to every worry about running out of juice which is nice. The included bong adapter was a nice addition to the kit, but regarding the kit… It’s been shrunken down to be much more portable. Good lucking trying to repack the box once you have it out. For that reason, I’d suggest getting a vape case that you can carpmentalize just for the Air Max itself as it comes with a lot of accessories. As for the vapor quality it performs rather well and I would say it produces more vapor than the Solo 2 with slightly less terpene flavor. Overall a decent pickup for my collection.
I’d suggest getting the black stem mouthpiece so that the whole unit is completely discreet. I have been loving the vaporizer but it loses one start for me for the optional dark mode which uses shapes and a darkened screen. I feel like that could have used that effort and made something like a superboost or a concentrate mode with an included wax cup.
Very strong battery that’s changeable. Not as good in terms of vapor quality as the Solo 2 from my perspective as a senior, but it does the trick on walks through the park with my dog. I’d suggest the capped mouthpiece from the Air 2 for a nice touch.

Very fast extraction, but can be a bit uneven if you use a fine grind without a dome screen. Honestly works best with a bubbler imo.
Very solid high. Draw restriction is a bit tighter than the Solo 2 but it isn’t restrictive. I do back to back sessions with two pre-loaded mouthpieces with a bit of hash sandwiched in. KO’s me and helps me medically. Great battery life, too.

Hits hard and the battery upgrade is nice. Other than that, it’s similar to a Solo 2.
