Pax Portable Vaporizer

Pax Portable Vaporizer Review


Pax by Ploom

A very attractive vaporizer with a sleek and high quality minimalist design. Sporting the more techie type of Apple Design, it lives up to the look and feel with performance.

Even though it was like fighting a grizzly bear with a switch, we worked out a deal where you get a cool extra, free of cost I might add! But you can only get it through the button below!

By functionality, design, and presentation, the Pax Vaporizer by Ploom feels like the Apple product of the vaporizer world: minimal design with added features that some may consider to be on the “fluffy” side.

Features such as shaking the unit to get the temperature and charge status are all cool little benefits in their own way. It’s really an individual thing… we go mainly for performance, but love the added tweaks.

This vape ranks highly in our top 10 vaporizers of 2015, so never underestimate this powerhouse.


At about the $230-260 range, the Pax is in the range of other top portable vaporizers, such as DaVinci Ascent and the Firefly. It does, however, come with an extended warranty period of 10 years.

The warranty coverage alone is a huge benefit to a vaper’s decision-making and is gives long-term peace of mind on their investment. The Pax is a very attractive vaporizer with a sleek and high quality minimalist design. Definitely better than vast majority of the other vaporizers we’ve seen and used.

Simple and light weight, it still Pax a powerful punch (just couldn’t resist the pun!). Geared up for dry herbs, it’s a force to be reckoned with and the competitors fear Pax in all of it’s sleek, yet intimidating awesomeness!

The Pax Vaporizer by Ploom includes:

  • 1 Pax Unit
  • 1 Charger Dock Station
  • 1 Screen
  • 1 Mouthpiece
  • 1 Lid
  • 5 Pipe Cleaners
  • 5 Cleaning Wipes
  • 1 Mouthpiece Maintenance Kits
  • 1 Operating Manual

Ease of Use

Lightweight. Feels like holding a large lighter. To turn it on and off? Just push in the end with the mouthpiece, and the mouthpiece pops out. The unit will automatically turn on, and heating time is about a minute or less. Charging time takes about an hour to two hours tops and gives you about an hour’s worth of vape time.

So, assuming, you take about 5 minutes per vape session, you can expect the unit to last about 10-12 times before needing to be recharged. The cap that seals the filling chamber has a magnet, so you push down on one side to cause the other side to lift open. Pretty cool feature. The herb chamber is small, but this thing is so efficient that it saves you on material without lacking experience.

This vape is so easy to operate and use, you will be vaping like a pro in seconds even if you have never vaped before in your life.  Experienced or not, this is a great starter vape, yet is powerful enough to satisfy the more seasoned vaper.

The Experience

Vapor is clean. Great overall quality. You can obtain quite a few draws with each full chamber. Uncertain if this is a design flaw, but the airflow felt a tad bit on the restricted side, but not packing it tightly is the remedy, so no harm, no foul!

The Pax excels in little features that make the whole vaping experience just a little bit easier. Though these features are not necessary, we’ve found the extras to make a more pleasurable vape. The Pax will automatically shut off after 20 seconds of inactivity, and it has to be placed on top of a surface and in an upright standing position for this power-safe mode to enable itself.

Busy or space-out prone vapers need not worry about cooking their herbs! again, the Pax has you covered.

Additional Info

The Pax has three heat settings: Low at 370, medium at 390, and high at 410. To change the temperature, you have to pull off the mouthpiece and push on the internal button to change it.

Shake the Pax, and the light will indicate its battery level: green is full, yellow is partial, and red is low.
