The Extreme Q Vaporizer is mid-level at home vaporizer with a high-end design and function but a mid-level price. The Extreme Q is commonly the vaporizer people buy when they can’t afford (or don’t want to drop the cash on) the Volcano Vaporizer. There aren’t any other competitors in the mid to high range at home units, its Extreme Q or Volcano, with Volcano being significantly better but also substantially more expensive.
Direct Tube Inhalation: You take the provided medical tubing, attach it to the base, and use your breath to inhale the vapor.
Forced Air Tube: This is the same as direct tube method except for this time you turn on a fan which blows the vapor right into your mouth. This is great for people who don’t have decent lung strength- it removes the work involved, you just turn the unit off when you’ve had enough.
Balloon System: This is the most popular method, and is the same method used for the Volcano. You attach a provided balloon to the unit, fill it with vapor, then remove from the group and inhale directly from the aircraft.
Regardless of the method you use, the Extreme Q Vaporizer heats up in three minutes (or less depending on the temperature you set it at). You can choose anywhere between 100 and 400 degrees.
You adjust the temperature via the LCD (can be displayed in both Fahrenheit and Centigrade) as well as see vitals such as current temperature, target temperature, fan speed, and a timer.
The Extreme Q also comes with a remote that you can use to control the unit from across the room. Most use this to either turn the heat on or off.
The internals of the Extreme Q Vaporizer is of good quality (as it should be for the price). It has a ceramic heating element along with a high-quality three-speed quiet fan. I was initially concerned about the fan for noise reasons but it is very quiet and a non-issue. The Extreme Q comes with everything you could need to use the unit regardless of which method you’d like to use.
One of the most popular aspects of the Extreme Q is the fact that it has a lifetime warranty offered by the manufacturer, Arizer. This is a big deal in an age where most cheaper vaporizers come with little to no warranty at all.
Though where this unit shines as compared to the cheaper groups is the quality of the vapor that comes out of this machine. If you want a “kick in the face,” you can certainly do it with the Extreme Q. You get medicated very quickly.
Summary: The Extreme Q Vaporizer is the second best at home vaporizer in the world. The only vaporizer better is the Volcano. If you want high quality at a lower price, and you want the ability to vape in multiple ways, the Extreme Q is the vape for you.
