Pax by Ploom Vaporizer Review

pax vaporizerpax vaporizerpax vaporizerpax vaporizerpax vaporizer

Company: Ploom

Product: Pax

Price: $250

Where to Buy: Vape World

Grade: A/A-

Design and Construction: The Pax has a contemporary, clean industrial design. It looks like an Apple product, specifically the cylinder shaped iPod Nano or the Apple TV remote control. It’s heavier than I was expecting (about .2 lbs), but it feels substantial and fits in the palm of my hand. I found myself wishing it had a carrying case, but the design itself and construction are difficult to criticize. I love the charging station. The screen and heating chamber are impressive and innovative in both appearance and function. Pax is a great looking device of very high quality.

Experience: The instructional video here will tell you in detail how to use the Pax. Suffice to say, it’s dead simple to use. Definitely the easiest vaporizer I’ve tested. Unlike the Iolite, it’s also completely silent. More important to me, however, is the taste and quality of the vapor it produces. On this count, the Pax delivers with a couple of caveats. I found the vapor to be satisfyingly rich and smooth, but less flavorful and harder on my throat than I expected. It took some time to get used to the draw which had more resistance and pulled smaller hits than other units I’ve tested. The mouth piece felt slightly short and got a bit hot on the highest heat setting. The device itself also gets a little too hot. The mouthpiece got stuck often and breaks easily. By and large, however, using the Pax is a stellar and unique experience. It’s one impressively potent and effective THC delivery system. It takes portable vaporizing to another level with its design, technology and ease of use. For those who enjoy smoking, the Pax comes closest to replicating the experience. I would argue it’s plainly superior to smoking.

Summary and Conclusion: The Pax’s clean design and dummy proof accessibility make it the gold standard for portable vaporizers. It fits in the palm of your hand and produces a satisfying potent vapor. But, there is still room for improvement. At $250, the price is steep, but you get what you pay for. The Pax would, however, find much quicker adoption if it were lower in price. The entry price is fair for now, but I see it going down considerably in the future with increased competition. Using it feels futuristic though it also feels like a first generation device. The mouth piece needs be improved and the device should be more reliable. The Pax should also be cooler to the touch. The vapor, while enjoyable, could be more flavorful, smoother and denser. I suspect future versions will greatly refine and improve upon an already impressive experience and form factor. Breakthroughs in technology will help make it even smaller and lighter. All things considered, the Pax has the feeling of a next generation vaporizer with potentially game changing technology.

what up dog… love your blog! what type of vaporizer do you use? keep up the good work!

Thank you. I currently use the WIPSR and Pax Vaporizers. The Pax is easier to use, but I prefer the vapor from the WISPR. I use my WISPR much more often.

What vapes have you used and what are your favorites? Do you vape exclusively?

I currently use the Pax and Whispr vaporizers. I use my Whispr more than the Pax. The Pax is easier to use and a better size, but I like the hits I get from my Whispr more. My throat gets a little sore when I use the Pax, but not when I use the Whispr. I exclusively vape and make my own edibles. I haven’t smoked in over a year. I will do a post on how I make strain specific edibles in the near future.

I’ve really enjoyed the vaporizer review, there will be more in future? I really want to buy one of those devices but I don’t like to waste my money.

I’m glad you enjoyed it. There will be more in the future. Right now I recommend the Pax and the WISPR. Both are portable vaporizers. If you have a question on specific products, let me know and I’ll tell you what I think. Cheers.
