Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with the Pax vaporizer. Back in 2012, buddies Monsees and Adam Bowen launched the original Pax with a dream to elevate dry cannabis consumption. Fast forward to today, and we’ve seen a couple of upgrades, with the Pax 3 making waves in 2016.
Now, Pax has spiced things up with their latest creations in late 2022 – the Pax Plus and Pax Mini. These siblings to the Pax 3 are like a fresh coat of paint on a classic car – familiar but with a new shine. The Pax Plus, a dual-use champ for herb and concentrate lovers, sticks to its $250 price tag and can be snagged with some cool accessories from our store. (buy now).
In the Box
Unboxing the Pax Plus is like Christmas morning. You get the sleek Pax Plus vaporizer, a couple of mouthpieces (flat & raised for your preference), two oven lids for big or small appetites, a concentrate insert for the adventurous, a USB-C Charger for quick power-ups, and all the cleaning tools you’ll need to keep your Pax pristine.
- The Pax Plus vaporizer unit
- Two mouthpieces- flat & raised
- Two oven lids- “full oven” or “half oven.”
- A concentrate insert
- A USB-C Charger
- A cleaning brush, replacement screens, and an oven tool.
Design & Features
The Pax Plus rocks that iconic, minimalist vibe we’ve all come to love. It’s got that ‘Apple of vaporizers’ reputation for a reason – it’s simple, chic, and feels like it belongs in your tech collection. The petal-shaped LEDs keep you in the know, and the magnetic charger at the back is just cool.
Pax Plus Oven
The stainless steel oven at the bottom is your herb’s new best friend, with a magnetic lid that snaps on like a dream. It’s roomy enough for a good session but remember, keep it to the flowers and let wax pens handle the concentrates.
You’ve got choices here – the flat mouthpiece is sleek and discreet, while the raised mouthpiece one is all about comfort. Want a pro tip? Go slow and steady on the draw for the best vapor with the flat mouthpiece.
The airpath is a straight shot from oven to mouthpiece, made from medical-grade materials to keep your vapor tasting like it should – pure and delicious.
This smart cookie of a vape knows when you’re using it, chilling out, or ready for a break, adjusting the heat to save your battery and your herb. It’s like having a vape that reads your mind.
Usage & Interface
Packing the Pax is an art – tight and tidy is the way to go. A quick press on the mouthpiece and you’re heating up. Cycle through the temps with a few clicks, and you’re golden. Blue for stealth, Green & Yellow for the regulars, and Red for that extra kick.
- Go Blue for “stealth mode,” keeping things low-key with less vapor and dimmed lights.
- Green and yellow are my go-to’s for that just-right session.
- Crank it up to Red for “Boost mode” when you’re ready to try the highest settings with concentrates.
Give it another long press or a quick shake to lock in your choice. When the petals glow green, it’s go time for your vape session.
Pax Pro Tips
Keep it clean, folks! An empty and tidy oven after your chill session means a happy Pax and a smoother next round.
Remember, a little upkeep goes a long way, and with these tips, you’re all set to get the most out of your Pax Plus. Keep puffing, and stay chill!
Cleaning & Maintenance
Okay, so it’s not the easiest to clean, but a little TLC every 10-15 sessions with the included tools keeps your Pax Plus happy.
Performance & Vapor Quality
The Pax Plus has been my trusty sidekick for a while now, and it’s a step up from the Pax 3. The first hits are like a flavor party, and it keeps up pretty well throughout the session. It’s not a Mighty+, but for its size and price, it’s the king of the hill.
What Could Be Better
It does get a bit warm, but keep your grip up top, and you’ll be fine. And yeah, the charger could’ve been USB-C, but the magnetic charm has its perks.
Pax Plus vs. Pax 3 & Mini
Not much has changed from the Pax 3, but the Plus has a few tweaks like a 3D screen for easier cleaning. The Mini is the budget-friendly little bro, great for flower-only fans.
The Pax Plus might not be perfect, but it’s darn good at everything it does. It’s the go-to for a premium, portable vape that’s built to last. If you’re a homebody vaper, consider the Mighty+ or Crafty+. But for on-the-go discretion, the Pax Plus is your best bet. (buy now)
