The PAX2 has quickly become one of the most popular herb vaporizers available. The creators of the PAX 2 originally launched the PAX by Ploom predecessor and made several remarkable improvements in the new model. Now the manufacturer is simply called PAX Labs and have dropped the Ploom name. Based in San Francisco (our backyard!) this dry herb vape is the brainchild of a couple Stanford grads with the right higher level of thinking. This portable vaporizer will become your new favorite companion on the go and at home.
Pax 2 vs Pax1 Vaporizer
Many differences exist between the original PAX and the PAX 2 vaporizer.
PAX2 = 30% more battery power, 25% smaller, 10% lighter and utilizes new lip-sensing technology as well. It features a new fancy pants battery charging dock, flat or raised mouthpieces, and a swiveling magnetic chamber cover that is downright fun to use. It is also much more discreet to use and can be concealed in the palm of most adult hands. And come on, only adults will be using this anyway!

Easy to Use
The fact that this conduction vaporizer can heat up to full temp in under a minute is quite impressive. It really shows how far vaporizer technology has come and will continue to improve. Speaking of new technology, the PAX2 brings us a whole new realm of possibility with lip-sensing technology! That’s right, it can tell that you have lips and knows how to slow it’s roll to provide you the best vapor hit for your temp setting. That said, some vapers have reported that when they push down too hard on the mouthpiece with their lips, this lip sensing technology can become a little hot to the touch. So less is more when pressing your lips to the vape, think of it as a gentle kiss…ahhhh… vape love!
Easy to Clean
The PAX2 provides a cleaning kit that includes some Isopropyl Alcohol and pipe cleaners. Cleaning the air path often is recommended for best vapor experience. The ISO and pipe cleaners make is easy to keep the PAX a happy little camper. The bottom screen can easily be cleaned in ISO as well and replacement screens are available as needed. The whole device can be wiped down easily to keep residue off such a beautiful vape.
Nice Battery Life
The PAX 2 has a sleek charging dock that plugs into any USB port and will fully charge in about 2-3 hours. Unfortunately you cannot use the device while charging but a test in patience is good for any herb vape user. Go outside, fold some laundry, call your mom…then your vape will be ready. You will get several sessions out of a full charge (4-6 session at about 8-15 draws per session). The PAX 2 battery is non-replaceable and lasts about 70-90 minutes depending on temp settings and charge level is indicated by how many flower petals are lit on the front of the vaporizer. This vaporizer even has an accelerometer which can tell when the vape is in use. It will auto-shut off as well as reduce temp quickly to conserve battery life.
How to use the PAX 2 Vaporizer?
The PAX2 vape is super easy to use.
1. Grind up your herbs! If you’re up for it, read our blog about why we grind. Do not use with extracts!
2. Swivel off the magnetic oven lid and pack the bowl full but don’t push the herbs down too tight. If you want to do a partial bowl, a little pack down is suggested but don’t go to crazy.
3. Put the included raised mouthpiece on the other end or use flat mouthpiece. Then push the mouthpiece down in the middle for just a second to turn the vaporizer on. Here, you hold down the button to choose your preferred temperature, indicated by the petal lights. When the LED flower petals turn green, the vape is at desired temp.
4. Sip and enjoy.
5. Make sure chamber is cooled down before clearing out and packing bowl for another round.
The 4 preset heat settings are indicated by the lights on the flower petals.
One Petal: 360ºF (182ºC)
Two Petals: 380ºF (193ºC)
Three Petals: 400ºF (204ºC)
Four Petals: 420ºF (216ºC)

Best Vapor Quality
It’s no joke, this little cylindrical vapor pal is serious about taste. Some portable herb vapes can be somewhat flat when producing quality vapor. The taste will be good for the first couple hits then might seem stale or like the conduction chamber is butting it’s metallic nose into the herb’s business. Not with the PAX 2. Each hit from a freshly packed bowl is yummy (until if gets vaped to that famous popcorn taste). As long as you have your temperature set right for the herbs you’re enjoying, you will not be disappointed. If you have dryer herbs, turn the temp down a notch. Better yet, start at low and go up from there.
Is the Pax2 the Best Vaporizer?
If it’s not the best, it sure is in the running. It’s simple to use, provides exceptional vapor quality and can keep herbs vaped efficiently with ease. It is also backed by a 10 year manufacturer warranty.
