Well it’s been a long time coming but we finally got our hands on the Pax Vaporizer by Ploom. Since its release I was eager to acquire and use this stylish portable. After lots of research and “hands on” time I figured it was time to do this product justice and write its’ review.
The Pax fits in your hand very nicely, which make it unbelievably easy to take with you. You will have no problems fitting this little guy into your pocket. Unlike other “pocket vaporizers” this one will truly fit it your pocket easily and discreetly. To me the Pax portable vaporizer reminds me of(looks like) a lighter, and is just slightly larger.
A Lithium-ion battery powers this sleek handheld and will give roughly two hours of “vape time”. It recharges in half the time(one hour) with the included charger. Heat up time is a quick 30 seconds. There is three settings to chose from for setting the temperature of the Pax. There is an indicator light that lets you know which setting you have it set on. Low(370°F) = Yellow; Medium(390°F) = Orange; High(410°F) = Red.
The exterior is built from anodized aluminum, which is also comes in three colors(Black, Blue, and Purple). The internal parts (heating element and vapor pathway) are constructed with high quality stainless steel. No corners were cut during the design process of the Pax, and it easy to tell when you hold it in you hands. This unit is built to last and the manufacture (Ploom) is so sure of this that offer an amazing 10-year warranty when purchased through an authorized dealer.
And now for the bad news, this vaporizer is one of the most expensive units($250) I have, which is one of the reason I didn’t get it sooner. However, I would still consider it a great buy and would recommend it to anyone if you have the funds. Another “con” is that you will have to maintain a regular cleaning schedule. I know some people just like to vape away and never do any maintenance but unless you want to run into the mouthpiece sticking or other problems I would recommended a good cleaning once a week maybe more depending how often you use it.
*Tip: I would also recommend doing a pre-burn cycle or two before actually using it. I know this can be tough when you get a new toy but it will greatly help with the taste of the vapor.
Price – $249 – $300
