1. The Pax Vaporizer is the most portable one out there.
It goes right into your pocket and you forget that you’re carrying it, because it’s only 1.4” by 4.1”. None of the other major portables (I’m thinking the Arizer Solo and Iolite) are that small. All of them are bulkier, some are so big they really stretch the meaning of the word portable.
2. The Pax looks stunning.
Elegant design. This unit looks like it was designed to be sold at the Apple Store. Anodyne aluminum construction. A medical grade stainless steel vapor path. Three color choices (blue, purple, or black). Very sleek, very tech looking, very cool. I’m proud to rock this thing when I’m out and about.
3. The Pax vapor is super-strong.
The first time I used it, I couldn’t believe how strong the vapor is, and how easy the draw is. I only needed three medium-size inhalations to achieve the effect I wanted. It really is a crazy experience when you first try it because it feels 2x stronger than most of the other portables I’ve tried.
4. The Pax battery is amazing.
The rechargeable lithium ion battery charges fully in under one hour and gets the device warmed up in less than one minute! Better still, a fully charged up vaporizer is good for two hours or more of nonstop use. This is pretty unheard of. And if you want to know how much charge is left in the unit, you just have to shake the Pax and it tells you! Like I said, amazing.
5. The battery’s “intelligent mode” is even more impressive.
When you put the vaporizer down, the battery is programmed to go into sleep mode (low power mode). It will only crank up again when you pick up the vaporizer again. This feature really extends your battery life. I was able to use my Pax vaporizer over 3 full days for that reason, I kid you not.
6. The Pax Vaporizer is easy to use.
The “oven door” for herb loading couldn’t be simpler, and if you have any trouble at all, the instruction manual is presented in a picture book style that is crazy easy to follow. You simply turn the unit on, load the herb in, and boom, you are ready to go.
7. The Pax has three temperature settings.
Casual herb users will only use one, but if you want, you can adjust between low, medium, and high temperature settings. Very useful for those who like to vape at certain temperatures.
8. The Pax has only two removable parts.
Solid state, reliable quality; easy to clean and very resistant to breakage. As a test (I wouldn’t suggest trying this by the way) I dropped it on a concrete floor from 6 feet and the unit has no damage whatsoever and kept working flawlessly.
9. The only possible negative about the Pax is the price.
Although for serious herb users, or casual ones who demand quality, the price is well worth it, and reasonable, for all the features you get and the value. And in fact the average price of $250 is comparable to other high end vaporizers that don’t perform nearly as well.
10. Ploom, the company that makes Pax Vaporizer, is new to the game.
That might sound like a negative. But a company that can produce a product this good is in the game for keeps. And they don’t want to risk their reputation and future growth by putting out damaged goods. Ploom, based out of San Francisco, is doubling down on its future by putting out a device as great as the Pax Vaporizer.
