How to operate the Arizer Argo
Once you have completed the sterilisation, you are all set to load up your Arizer Argo with your freshly ground herb. Please note, you only need to complete the sterilization process once, when you have just purchased your device!
Step 1: Grind up your herb.
Step 2: To load your unit, pack your ground herb into the dish of your glass aroma tube. Be sure not to pack it too tight, you need to be able to allow air to flow through the tube so that you can inhale. You can use the stirring device to make sure your herb is packed the perfect amount.
Step 3: Slide your aroma tube into the heating chamber by slotting it into the hole in the top of your Arizer Argo. You are all set to vaporize!
Step 4: Hold down both the menu buttons and the + buttons for six seconds on your device in order to turn it on.
Step 5: Wait until the device reaches its desired temperature. The device will start heating as soon as you press one of the temperature control buttons (+ or - buttons).
Step 6: Inhale the vapor through the glass aroma tube and enjoy!
For best results, we recommend vaping between 180-210 degrees celsius.
How To Clean/Maintain the Arizer Argo
1. Cleaning the Arizer Argo’s Glass Aroma Tubes
Clean the glass aroma tubes by soaking them in a glass full of isopropyl alcohol 90%+ proof for approximately 30 minutes. Once you have soaked it, use a q-tip or pipe cleaner to dislodge and remove any residue from the sides of the stem. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
2. Cleaning the main Heating Chamber
Best practice:Wipe your heating chamber after each use or daily with a pipe cleaner or q-tip to remove any residue or extra particles before they get stuck on. This will make it easier to maintain your device in the long run.
For a slightly deeper clean, you can soak your q-tip in some isopropyl alcohol 90%+ and wipe the inside. You should carry out sterilization after this by following the steps at the top of the How To Use section. This will ensure that all the alcohol is burnt off before your next use.
We have been really excited to get our hands on the Arizer Argo. This truly is a unique device, most notably for how portable and discrete it is. With the mouthpiece guard up, this product easily and safely fits into your pocket or purse and is not much larger than a packet of cigarettes. Once in your pocket, it can be yielded at your leisure wherever you are (within reason).
The Argo makes tasty and smooth vapor which hits hard. It’s good value as far as we are concerned, but there are cheaper vapes out there. You definitely get what you pay for. The new look and materials from this portable Arizer Go work really well. We also think that battery life is superb for a product of this size!
The heat-up time is 60 seconds which makes it not great if you are in a hurry and want a quick hit. Also, we found that if you really pack it in, each stem holds approximately 0.3 grams however for best results, we found that packing in 0.15 grams works better. This means you may only get a few large hits from it.
If you are mainly vaping at home and sharing with friends, you may want to opt for something with a larger oven size such as the Mighty or even a desktop vaporizer such as the Volcano.
The Arizer Argo is an excellent dry herb pocket-sized vaporizer with incredible specs. It is perfect if you are looking for a mid-range product that is excellent value, ultra-portable and needed on the go. If you want something that is for passing around at home, there are more suitable products.
Arizer Argo Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the common questions that we get asked about this product. We hope they may help you out. You are always welcome to get in touch with us with a more specific question. One of our experts will be more than happy to assist you!
Q1: What temperature shall I use on my Arizer Argo?
We recommend temperatures between 190 degrees Celsius and 210 degrees Celsius for the optimal vaping experience. If you would like a slightly smoother, more flavorsome vaping experience, opt for something along the 190 mark. If you want a slightly harsher, full-on and super-charged experience, opt for something around the 205 mark.
Q2: What are the filter screens for?
Arizer provides the filter screens as an extra level of protection should you require it. If your grinder grinds your herb super fine, you may use the filter screens to stop it from coming through the mouthpiece. The screens do generally keep your device cleaner meaning you don’t need to clean it as often, however, they are not 100% necessary according to Arizer.
Q3: What’s the best way to get the most out of my Arizer Argo?
Our three most important tips for getting the most out of your Arizer Argo are the following. First of all, make sure you clean your device thoroughly and often. By keeping it clean, you will extend the lifespan of your device as well as making sure it always tastes great when in use.
Second of all, you need to make sure you pack your device correctly. Herb which is too finely ground may clog the product and may get into your mouth. Slightly coarser herb is ideal as it allows air to pass through the herb allowing for maximum vapor.
Finally, and this is our top PRO tip, when you have allowed the product to reach its desired temperature after loading it up, we recommend waiting a minute or two for the herb to heat up. This will ensure maximizing your vapor output and really getting the most out of your Arizer Argo portable vaping experience.
Q4: Does it have a warranty?
As with most of the Arizer vapes, the Arizer Argo comes with a 2-year manufacturer warranty. You’re covered from defects and malfunctions.

When my 60-year-old lungs could no longer tolerate hot, harsh smoke, was forced to give it up. Then I treated myself to an ArGo vaporizer. Portable and easy to use, the draw is smooth and the taste is superb. I haven't coughed, not once after several sessions. Gone are the plumes of easily distinguishable smoke, replaced by a pleasant, faint aromatic haze that disipates quickly and doesn't give itself away. I no longer fear what the neighbors think. And the effects are phenomenal. Think of the temperature setting as a volume knob. Lower temperatures produce a modest effect that allows full social functioning. Mid level temps produce enhanced awareness, creativity and a laugh that won't stop. I'm back to my old self and it feels great.
This vape is one of the best I’ve tried for full terpene rich flavor. Vapor quality is pretty good, not as thick and hard hitting as other products and not as ultra efficient as the dynavap, but hits very nicely. The vaporizer is not as large as I was expecting, which is great, and is very portable. Nice build quality and feel, easy and intuitive user interface; this is an awesome vape!
