What's the difference between the Arizer Extreme Q and the Arizer V-Tower?

Posted by Vaporizer Chief on 7th Jun 2021

If you love marijuana vaporizers and are constantly trying to decide between high-grade, expensive units versus less expensive vapes that work just as well, you may very well be disappointed by your search thus far. Two of the best vaporizers you can find from Canadian based manufactures are the Arizer Extreme Q and the Arizer V-Tower. You may also have heard the Arizer from vaporizers like Solo and the Air However, there are some marked differences between the V-Tower and the Extreme Q units. Those differences aren't only the price point but also the product details.

Such a versatile and improved vaporizer, the Arizer Extreme Q 4.0 is made with the average consumer in mind. With everybody trying to go portable yet with the fact that desktop vaporizers perform and outlast portable vaporizers, this dry herb tabletop vaporizer has exactly what you're looking for. With a digital temperature remote control, it levels up and down the fan for vapor density control, changes the temperature of the herbal heating, and contains an automatic on and off power option. The Extreme Q ceramic heating element heats up within two minutes which includes a precise temperature control with three heat sensors. The new version, which is the Extreme Q 4.0 actually has a less noisy fan that cuts the the noise and increases the efficiency by 50%. Remember, for best efficient vaporizing, make sure your herb is medium to finely ground up. To find your perfect vaping temperature, you must use it at different temperatures. It starts at 100°F to 500°F. Try to keep your heating chamber full but not too pressed down to allow the heat travel through. Along with all of this, the Extreme Q allows you to use a whip style attachment or a balloon. The Extreme Q will continue to build residue so you can clean up the glass using warm water, rubbing alcohol, and a small brush. Always remember to unplug the V-Tower when cleaning your unit to avoid any problems.

One of the most efficient whip-style vaporizers is made by the Canadian brand Arizer. At a much affordable price than its sister, the Extreme Q, the Arizer V-Tower Vaporizer still has a digital display feature to let you know what the temperature is at. The all glass vertical Cyclone bowl that creates even heat distribution is completely toxin free to create pure and clean vapor. The new version of the V-Tower has a midnight chrome finish with a LCD display, extra-long medical grade whip that’s three (3) feet, auto shut off settings, along with an insulated stainless steel housing to make sure the unit doesn’t get to hot. It reaches its full potential vaporization temperature in two minutes, which ranges from 100°F to 500°F. For most efficient grind level, make sure your herbs are ground up well. The heating element is made from ceramic which is surrounded by borosilicate glass. There will be residue build up so you can clean up the glass using warm water, isopropyl alcohol, and a soft brush. Always remember to unplug the V-Tower when cleaning your vaporizer.

The Experience Between The Two Arizers

Vaporizers often differ in the experience they offer vape users. After all, they are different units. The hardware that each of them features directly contributes to the total experience. If you plan on “sharing” your vaping then you might want to opt for the Q as it allows you to do so through the balloons. Passing a whip from person to person is not as easy. Balloons also allow more flexibility in at-home vaping allowing you to roam around the house as you wish while vaping. The Tower does not allow you to move around at will. The Arizer Q also features an extremely convenient remote control which prevents you from having to get up to adjust your unit. Instead of going back and forth from your vaporizer, you can simply press a button and wait for the balloon to fill on its own and then use it.

The V-Tower also doesn't have a forced air fan which directly affects the efficiency of the unit although it still comes with the remote control to control the temperature settings on the unit. With the Q, the forced air saves you money in the long-run as you won’t have to purchase your herbs as often. Most users find that within 3-6 months of using the Q you replenish the price difference between it and the V Tower, making it worth it to opt for the Q.

Difference from the Extreme Q and the V-Tower

Both the Arizer Extreme Q and the Arizer V-Tower are extremely affordable and offer incredible features as well. Each unit has set the standard across the world for high quality vaporizers and their corresponding features. The major differences between these two vaporizers come down to the following features and descriptions.

  • The Q offers an option to vape through a balloon or a regular whip.
  • The V-Tower offers vaping through whip only.
  • The Q offers an inbuilt fan, advanced accessories, and a remote control.


Ultimately your decision will come down to your personal preferences. If you’re looking for a unit that is perfect for sharing then the Arizer Extreme Q is the right unit for you. The balloon, remote control and forced air features will enable you to easily share your vape and also provide flexible vaping. A little bit more expensive but yet it’s a dual use vape which will let you use a fan to fill up the balloon attachment or the the whip style attachment.

The Arizer V-Tower, on the other hand, is great for individual use. It provides plenty of excellent and flavorful vapor and lends itself to individual use with a 3 foot long whip hose. If you plan on doing most of your vaporizing at home, or with up to 1 other friend, then the V-Tower should be your go-to option.

We recommend first considering how you will use your unit before making a purchase, but for greater flexibility we recommend the Arizer Extreme Q.
