Arizer Extreme Q Review

The Arizer Extreme Q is such a classic desktop vaporizer! The EQ is a full convection dry herb vape similar to the Storz & Bickel Volcano. The Arizer EQ actually does more than the Volcano, though, as the EQ also functions as a whip vape instead of only bags and balloons.

The EQ is also considerably cheaper at $150. That’s $350 LESS than the 14-year-old Volcano.


For $150 the Arizer EQ is a fantastic value. The EQ can sit dormant and stealthy in a home and family environment without looking suspicious. It can even be used as a potpourri warmer or aromatherapy device.

The Arizer EQ has a small footprint while serving up big vapor. With the included whip, the Arizer Extreme Q can easily serve a large crowd. The whip set up is also wonderful for daily continual use and microdosing.

What’s included
– Arizer EQ Vaporizer
– remote control
– food grade whip/tubing
– 2 glass mouthpieces
– 2 bags/balloons
– 2 balloon mouthpieces
– balloon fill adapter
– extra screens
– aromatherapy/potpourri dish

Arizer EQ vs Volcano
Let’s be real here, the Storz & Bickel Volcano is a nicer device with a better warranty. Storz & Bickel is a German engineered brand that stands as the best. The Volcano is heavier, it’s easier to use, and produces better vapor with larger amounts of weed. However, the Volcano is also a unitasker – it’s a full-time bag vape without any other special features.

Is the Volcano worth $500 compared to the Arizer Extreme Q at $150? The Volcano is overpriced when compared to the Arizer EQ. The EQ can do everything the Volcano does and more. However, If you’re a bag-vape lover and dream of 10-foot vape bags, chances are the Arizer EQ won’t satisfy your demands.

I’m a casual bag-user. I chose the Arizer EQ over the Volcano many years ago after rigorous testing and I have no regrets.

  1. Hey Troy

    I thought I remembered seeing a video of you reviewing this on YouTube in the past, I’ve been trying to find it online for a couple days with no luck.
    I’ve been thinking about picking one of these up and wanted to see how you rated it.
    So thanks for putting this up today, you’ve got good timing.

  2. Hello Troy,

    Volcano, Arizer Extreme Q, Log style, Flowerpot, Cloud EVO or any other desktop vaporizer…what’s the best one?


  3. I have owned a V-tower and two Extreme-Q Arizer vapes and a couple of Solos as well. Never mind the warranty, the backup from Arizer is ecellent and they have many times exheeded expectations in that regard. They want your loyalty that is obvious. I have no complaints about any of their products so far and consider the Extreme -Q to be the absolute best value for money desk top vape around. It is pretty and very versatile. I’d like the extra bowl capacity of the Volcano but with bags on the V-tower or Extreme-Q you can get as high as you want day after day. Note on the Solo, the battery life is extraordinary too.
