PAX: A Comprehensive Guide to All Vapes (Review, Price, Comparison)

The Pax vaporizer, made by Pax Labs, is no doubt one of the leading and most talked about companies in the world of vapes; in the last half-decade or so, they have become a legitimate frontrunner in revolutionizing how people consume weed in public.

The brand was founded in 2007 by two Stanford Design Program graduates who were hell-bent on a single mission: to make smoking weed with a joint and a lighter totally obsolete (or if not totally obsolete, at least “outdated”).

The company has since made a line of vapes that are not only effective, but also provide a simple and pleasurable experience that adds a whole new element to cannabis-indulgence. Since the rapid rise in the popularity of vaping, many smokers are now turning to these electronic cigarettes that are “sublimated” rather than smoked, and for very good reason; there is now strong scientific evidence that vaping is far better for your health – especially for your lungs – than is smoking.

But this is not the only reason that people are choosing vaping over smoking. Vaping also offers a greater level of discretion, enhanced flavors, a more intense “cannabis sensation,” and even enhanced practicality in terms of cost (no more buying a $7 pack of cigarettes every day for the rest of your life).

Sure, vapes may be expensive at the time you purchase them, but after you’ve made the initial investment you will undoubtedly save money – especially if you’re aim is to abolish your traditional tobacco cigarette habit.

In terms of potency, it’s been estimated that vaporizers release almost twice as much THC than smoking does, which technically means you would need half as much weed in order to achieve the same high (again, saving money). Moreover vaporizers are a lot more discreet than joints (they hardly put off any smell at all), and you can usually hit them right out in public without anyone becoming the wiser. Also, while traditional combustion creates harmful smoke with carbon dioxide and other toxic elements, the cannabis-produced vapor released by sublimation is 95% smoke and carcinogen free.

Pax Labs have positioned themselves as a lifestyle brand as much as they have a technology company. They have even made themselves a fixture at some high-profile music festivals and fashion shows, and have commissioned artists to paint weed-inspired murals in cities like Denver, Berlin, and Seattle. As an innovative and premium brand, Pax vapes are in high demand. So without further ado, let’s crush out some Pax vaporizer reviews and take a close look at their complete lineup to find out if this world-class brand lives up to all the hype.

Review of Pax 3

PAX 3The Pax 3 vaporizer is a portable vape that can be used for both dry herb and concentrates, and it’s apparently the most-popular and best-selling product in the entire Pax lineup. It has an elegant look and feel to it, is easy to use, is super portable and discreet, very reliable, and it comes with a warranty; really, you can’t ask for much more from it.

Also, while the original Pax 3 release date was a while back, it’s still considered to be one of the “smartest” portable vaporizers around; it’s definitely an upgrade from the Pax 2, and in the below Pax 3 review you’ll see just why it has become so popular among weed enthusiasts all over the country.

Pax 3 Vaporizer: Key Features

The sleek design and impeccable vapor quality are essentially what has made the Pax 3 vaporizer a world phenomenon. It is available to buy in two different kits: either a “device-only” option (which will cost you around $199.99), or the “complete-kit,” which will set you back about $249.99.

The complete kit includes a half-pack lid, the concentrate insert, and a small carrying case. You can find the Pax 3 for sale directly on the Pax Lab website, which is currently one of the only places you can browse actual Pax vapes for sale online. A lot of people seem to think you can buy them on Amazon, but this is not true – Amazon doesn’t sell the actual vapes. They do, however, sell authentic Pax accessories for good prices and free shipping, so you can check them if you need a protective case or mouthpiece replacement or something like that. (Or you can even just Google Pax 3 Vaporizer Amazon and see what’s currently available).

All in all, if you are on the lookout for a portable vaporizer for weed, then the Pax 3 will likely be perfect for you. With its convenient size and the fact that it slips right into your pocket (with more ease than any set of car keys), you can take it just about anywhere with you and maintain total discreetness. Also, we love the fact that it’s deliberately made with a minimalist and ergonomic design, and fabricated with “real” materials (not plastic) that are made from anodized aluminum. This makes for incredibly secure connections (the lids and mouthpieces are magnetically attached) and a device body that is both sturdy and luxurious.

After receiving complaints about previous products (including the fingerprint magnet caused by the glossy finish), the Pax 3 has been released in four new matte colors: Black, Teal, Silver, and Rose Gold. This makes upkeep of the device far easier and, of course, also makes it look b-e-a-utiful. (You could ultimately say that the Pax 3 model has 5 colors, though, since you still have the option to select the original glossy version).

In terms of actual function, our Pax 3 vaporizer review team disclosed that the unit had a “heat up” time of 30 seconds (or less), with four preset temperatures, a large battery, and Bluetooth connectivity which enables you to customize your settings through an app. The temperature options consist of the following ranges:

  • Temperature 1: 360°F / 182°C – 1 Green LED
  • Temperature 2: 380°F / 193°C – 2 Yellow LEDs
  • Temperature 3: 400°F / 204°C – 3 Orange LEDs
  • Temperature 4: 420°F / 215°C – 4 Red LEDs

Let’s look in more detail at some of the crucial features that could influence your decision to pull the trigger and buy a legendary Pax 3 vaporizer:

  • Portability: The Pax 3 vape is known to be one of the most portable vaporizers on the market, and measuring in at a mere 3.87” tall and 1.2” wide, it is only slightly bigger than an average tube of lipstick.
  • Battery life: This unit has a surprisingly good battery life when considering its diminutive size, and our trusty Pax 3 review team discovered that it lasts for around an hour and a half under continuous use. A full charge from dead to 100% took about 100 minutes.
  • Temperature flexibility: The Pax 3 comes with five pre-set temperature ranges, the fifth of which can be customized to a heat of anywhere between 182-215°C (see above chart).
  • The Pax 3 app: Yes, believe it or not, the Pax 3 vaporizer has its own app. Along with the custom temperature option, the app also allows you to set different heating modes, which literally gives you the power to customize your high. Moreover, the app currently offers various modes, including (but not limited to): Standard, Flavor, Boost, Efficiency mode, and Stealth Profile (low-temp vaping for maximum discreetness).
  • Ease of use: If you choose not to use the app, the Pax 3 vaporizer is fairly straightforward to use. Interacting with the Bluetooth app may take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it’s really easy and offers some legitimately amazing features.
  • Screen: The Pax 3 screen is pre-installed in the device, and you should also receive a backup when you make a purchase.

If you are intrigued by the Pax 3 but are not familiar yet with the true concept of vaping, you may be wondering: is the Pax 3 good for newbies? The answer is a resounding YES. It’s a high performance and versatile vape that you can use with both dry herb and concentrates, and it also allows you to switch between either of these in a matter of seconds thanks to the concentrate insert that you simply slot into the unit’s chamber.

Lastly, the Pax 3 vape has been made with simplicity in mind, and is truthfully a breeze to use. The multi-colored LED display gives exact feedback on what’s going on inside the unit when it’s heating, which ultimately lets you know when the chamber has reached optimal vaping temperature.

Pax 3 Vaporizer: How to Use it

So by now you are probably thinking this all sounds good and well, but you may be wondering how to use the diminutive little Pax 3 vape. Well, here’s a breakdown right from the Pax 3 User Guide:

First, simply remove the magnet cap at the bottom of the device, which will expose the heating chamber, fill it with your best herbs or concentrate, and place the bottom back on the unit.

Next, turn on the device by pressing the center of the mouthpiece on top of the unit. To adjust the temperature, hold the power button while the device is on, which will enter the temperature “menu.” A soft press of the power button will cycle through five temperature settings, the fifth of which is a custom temp that can be set through the app.

Once you have selected your desired temperature, press and hold the power button to lock it in place. It should theoretically only take about 15 seconds to reach the set temperature, in which case the device will vibrate and the lights will turn green. This signals the all-clear to begin taking draws from the mouthpiece.

To use the Pax 3 concentrate insert, fill it with your favorite concentrate, wax, or butter, and place it in the oven of the unit. There will be a piece that sticks out the bottom a bit, so you will easily be able to remove it. When using concentrates you can actually vape at several different temperature ranges, depending on the specific effects that you want to feel. This is called “customizing your high,” and we actually did an article not too long about which vape temperatures produce which effects.

Pax 3 Vape Review: How to Clean it

Now that we know how to use the Pax 3, let’s take a look at how to clean the Pax 3. Cleaning your Pax regularly is necessary to keep it working at peak performance, and applying the mouthpiece lubricant is something that actually helps avoid the subtle little nuances of the device (such as the tip getting stuck onto the body if you don’t clean it for a month straight).

Here’s what you will need to clean your Pax 3:

  • A pack of mouthpiece lubricant
  • Small bit of rubbing alcohol
  • Interdental brush from your local drugstore
  • Two Q-tips
  • Pipe cleaner
  • A CLEAN straw off a spray can (like WD-40 or something similar — but make sure there is no residue on it)

The two main areas of the Pax 3 vape that need to be cleaned are the area up around the mouthpiece connections and the area over the oven. To clean the mouthpiece area, turn the device on (this will pop the mouthpiece out), grab the brush, and dab a little alcohol on it – but not too much. The tiny brush should allow you to get into all the areas around the tubing. You can use the Q-tips for any areas that are too small for the brush.

Now you can grab the pipe cleaner and moisten the end of it with a little alcohol. Use the pipe cleaner to go over the areas of the mouthpiece again (using Q-tips where necessary). Now the mouthpiece should be super duper clean, and you can move on to the oven.

To clean the Pax 3 oven to shining new condition, simply grab the pipe cleaner and this time moisten just a bit more of it with alcohol. Remove the bottom of the oven cover and then use the supplies again to wipe down this section. (You can see the full video that covers the cleaning process as part of the Pax 3 manual, which is conveniently located right here).

Pax 3 Vapor Quality

The last, but certainly not least thing we need to cover in this Pax 3 vaporizer review is the actual vapor quality of the unit. All in all, the cloud from the Pax 3 vaporizer is relatively smooth and satisfying, and can actually be changed by selecting a different temperature and heating mode as we have mentioned above.

The heating modes are what make the vapor quality particularly unique — anyone who enjoys denser vapor and quicker sessions can opt to use the boost mode for a more “punchy” session, while those who like more flavor can choose the “flavor” profile. This will increase cooling between draws, and thus help to maintain the flavor.

Review of Pax 2

pax 2

The Pax 2 vaporizer was designed specifically for use with dry herb material. It is beautifully crafted and offers long, uninterrupted vaping sessions thanks to its state-of-the-art battery pack and top-shelf vapor quality.

Released in 2015, the Pax 2 was, of course, the second release from the Pax lineup (the Pax 3 has since taken over). However, the only notable changes with regard to the Pax 2 vs Pax 3 vaporizer is the app that the Pax 3 runs on, and the fact that you can use concentrates with the 3 (yes, these are two pretty big differences).

If you are not planning on using the app, and/or you don’t use concentrates (cannabis vape oils), you might as well just stick to the Pax 2 and save yourself a little bit of cash, because they’re basically the same device apart from those functions.

Before the Pax 3 came along, in fact, the Pax 2 was considered to be one of the finest vaporizers on the market. In this complete, ultra-definitive Pax 2 vaporizer review, we will do our very best to explain why that is the case.

Pax 2 Vaporizer: Key Features

For years, the Pax 2 vape has legitimately been one of the best regarding portability, performance, and discretion. Also, at 3.87” tall, 1.21” wide and .08” deep, the Pax 2 is virtually the same size as the Pax 3 – incredibly easy to carry around in your pocket.

The device also comes with a flat mouthpiece design, which means there is basically no way that anyone can tell what it is (unless of course they’re a vaper as well). Also, this makes the cleaning minimal since there are no annoying clicking components in the top part to gunk up.

In terms of temperature, our Pax 2 vape review team (which coincidentally is the exact same as our Pax 3 review team!) disclosed that temp settings consist of four different options. These are pre-set at 360°F, 380°F, 400°F, and 420°F (180°C, 193°C, 204°C, and 215°C, respectively).

The Pax Lab has stated that they designed the Pax 2 vape with a unique heating algorithm, which apparently adjusts the temperature of the device dynamically based on how you use it (can you imagine what stoners back in the 60’s would think of this thing?). The temperature algorithm is focused on the materials themselves, rather than the oven temperature which ensures that the draw will be consistent from start to finish. Also, the Pax 2 heat settings theoretically mean that you should get a better, more consistent flavor over a longer period of time.

Believe it or not, the instructions and accessories are among the most important things when it comes to this Pax 2 vape review. We will go into more details on how to use the Pax 2 below, but first, let’s take a look at some of the accessories that it comes with:

  • Magic Flight Finishing Grinder: With this grinder, you don’t need to worry about much of anything in terms of how efficiently you need to grind up your flower, as it does a hell of a job. Simply load it up with some fresh herb, give it several good twists, and you’ll be left with a perfect powder that’s just a bit more course than the texture of kief. In other words soft, powdery, and easy to pinch between the fingers. This improves vapor production and the overall vapor taste drastically.
  • Delta 3D Water Pipe Adapter: As you might guess, this adapter makes for a quick way to filter the vapor through the water. The silicon base makes it exceptionally durable and easy-to-use, and it is also heat resistant which means the warmth that radiates from the device will not alter or damage the adapter.
  • Vape pusher/Vented lid and screen: The pusher and screen are a dynamic duo of sorts that helps to improve the draw resistance and vapor production. The best part is it gives you total control over how much you load into the oven. So rather than always packing the oven full, you can fill it half way, or hardly at all and it will function as if it were fully packed.

In addition to the above little trinkets, you can also expect your Pax 2 vape to come with a charging cradle, a cleaning kit, mouthpiece, a raised mouthpiece, and a USB cord.

In terms of where to buy a Pax 2 vaporizer online, you really don’t have many other options other than to go directly through the Pax lab website. Like we mentioned earlier a lot of people seem to think that you can find Pax vaporizers for sale online at Amazon and eBay, but this isn’t true – legally they are only allowed to sell accessories.

You might be able to find the Pax 2 for sale online in other places on the web, but MAKE SURE that you’re buying an original as there are actually some fake Pax 2 vapes floating around out there (kind of like fake Rolex’s and fake Louis Vuitton bags).

In terms of price, the Pax 2 vape is pretty much dead set at $149.99. If you find it selling for less, it’s most likely not the real thing, because these things VERY rarely go on sale (unless of course you are using a coupon code).

Pax 2 Vaporizer: How to Use It

Now for what many would consider to be the most important part of the Pax 2 review: how to use the little guy. While it is considered an easy-to-use device overall, it can take some getting used to as you can use Pax 2 in several ways. Here, though, we will focus on only the most common uses, the ones that you will most likely need.

To load the device, you simply remove the oven lid by pressing down on one side to prop it up. Then load the chamber by inserting the herb down using a loading tool, and then reattach the lid. It’s important that you always make sure that the chamber is cooled down before you remove the oven lid. Also, a great tip is to slightly overfill the chamber and then stuff the herb down so that it is firmly packed. This ensures better vaporization.

The Pax 2 chamber is capable of holding a minimum of 0.15 grams and a maximum of 0.35 grams. If you are looking to fit as much herb as possible into the chamber, you can overfill it with finely ground herb and break it down a bit until it’s level with the rim of the chamber.

Also, if you need to remove the Pax 2 screen you will need a needle or some other very thin tool. You can insert the needle into one of the holes found on the side of the screen and pry it up, lifting it with tweezers if necessary. Then, to re-insert the screen simply drop it into the chamber and nudge it down with a small tool until it fits perfectly in place.

To change the temperature of the device, you can press the button at the center of the mouthpiece (this is also how you turn the device on), and hold it down to enter the temperature control mode. Press it quickly to cycle through the four settings, and hold the button down again to set the temperature. The temperature settings are displayed by an LED light that has four petals. Once the temperature has been selected, the Pax 2 will take about 60 seconds to heat up.

Pax 2 Vaporizer: How to Clean

Naturally, explaining how to clean Pax 2 is a very important aspect of “responsible ownership” of the device, and the Pax 2 vaporizer review team did an excellent job of going into even the most minute details, though they claimed that the cleaning process is in fact pretty simple.

First, clip off the mouthpiece and take the small oven screen out. Then clean any dirt out of the oven screen to ensure that air can easily flow through it. Now use a small brush and some cleaning solution to gently clean out the Pax’s oven. This ensures that the stainless steel vapor path remains clear. You should give it a thorough clean every few sessions to keep it clear and to ensure that the air path is unobstructed. Since the mouthpiece is made of silicone it’s not prone to too much build-up, but it’s still a good idea to give it a frequent clean every now and again, especially since it’s the part that goes in your mouth!

Pax 2 Vapor quality

The vapor quality of the Pax 2 is considered to be above average, which means you will be blowing nice, big, thick clouds. The vape performs really well in general, but it’s important to keep the oven clean to ensure it keeps running in tip-top shape. If you let residue build up, you’ll find that the vape quality decreases substantially.

In terms of taste and sensation, the vapor produced by the Pax 2 has been described as smooth and comfortable, and significantly better than the original Pax. While the Pax 2 smell is said to be less than pleasant, the taste is reported as surprisingly refreshing. On the downside, though, the smell can be potent while heating up, when using, and even when it’s just in your pocket. However, cleaning the device frequently is said to help with the smell.

Review of Pax era

Pax Era

The Pax Era vaporizer was released around the same time as the Pax 3 and is a tiny, discreet little oil vape (you can’t use dry flower in it). This is a temperature controlled, pen-sized vaporizer exclusively for concentrates like CBD vape oil, THC oil, etc. And with just two parts to the entire device, it’s been described as so easy to use that it doesn’t even make sense.

The two parts, in case you’re wondering, are the base and the cartridges. The base consists of the battery and a classic PAX light display, and the cartridges are sold separately and slide easily into their place on the top of the base. This Pax era device also comes with an app, which had the high-tech vape world abuzz when it first came out.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at what this super discreet little unit can do in the complete Pax Era vaporizer review.

Pax Era Review: Features

The Pax Era is a lightweight, pocket-sized device that offers the consumer a discreet, on-demand vaping experience. It also has a big temperature range and precise control settings that allow users to personalize their pulls. You can control the device via the app which allows easy access to temperature controls and device lockout mode.

When the Era was first released, the app was no doubt considered the coolest part of the device (though if you remember, the Pax 3 also can run on an app). You can simply download the app in Google Play or the Apple store, and turn on your Bluetooth. The Pax Era app incorporates various “high-tech” features such as the ability to lock the device if you lose it (so nobody else can use it). Also, the app lets you automatically turn off the device if you haven’t taken a hit in a few minutes (in case you forget), and it enables you to adjust the heat between 520 to 790 degrees Fahrenheit.

In our opinion, though, the app wasn’t the most important thing in the Pax 2 vape review. Here’s a list of a few things we found to be equally as substantial:

  • Temperature flexibility: The Era allows for full temperature control, which is absolutely critical in terms of safety and achieving the specific effects that you want to feel. There are four pre-set options which have been built into the device, or, if you use the app, you can set your own customized range. If you want to set the temperature, all you do is simply shake the device to engage battery check mode.
  • Battery life: While you typically want to see at least 600-750mAh in a good concentrate vape pen, the Pax Era dab pen only has 240mAh. While this is far from impressive, it actually holds up just fine due to the fact that its diminutive size hardly requires any power. In fact, the (possibly stoned, by this point) Pax 2 vape review team found that it was good for well over 100 draws in succession (in comparison, Pax states themselves that you can get up to 200 puffs on a full charge).
  • Portability: The portability of the Pax Era is unmatched in the industry – you can seriously take it around with you anywhere. It’s small, easy to conceal, and can slip into any bag purse or pocket with the subtelty of an expert pick-pocket.
  • Ease-of-use: As we mentioned above, the Pax Era is exceptionally easy to use – literally all you need to do is take a draw. You don’t even need to wait for it to heat up or click any buttons to turn it on. You can simply take it out your pocket, take a draw, and put it back. Done.

In terms of price, if you can find a Pax ERA for sale online the retail price is $29.99, and it comes with a one-year warranty if you order directly from the PAX site.

Pax Era Vape Quality

The quality (actually we should say ‘quantity’) of the Pax Era vape is probably it’s only downside, but this is totally expected given its price compared to the Pax 2 and Pax 3. While you shouldn’t expect to be blowing any Pompeii-esque clouds with this sucker, it’s totally enough for your on-the-go fix.

Also, another potential downside is the fact that you will need to buy pre-made cartridges specifically designed for the Era. While this is a minor inconvenience, on the plus side the Pax Era review team claimed that cartridges are seriously fantastic (i.e. the ones you order directly from Pax). There are several different varieties to choose from, and you can taste the specific flavor differences between them pretty clearly.

But, it’s not all about flavor. The intensity and size of the hits are also said to be impressive, particularly for such a small device.

Сomparison: Pax 2 vs Pax 3 vs Pax Era

Now that we have had a look at each device separately, let’s take a look at how they compare to one another on an head-to-head (to head) basis. Specifically, we’ll be looking at how the Pax 3 compares to the Pax 2 and Pax Era, since it is the latest version to be released.

Pax 3 vs Pax 2 Vape Review

Since the Pax 3 hit the market, the Pax 2 has dropped significantly in price, and honestly, it doesn’t look like it will be phased out anytime soon. There are four key features of each device, and we will take a closer look at these differences below:

  • Exterior finish: This is the most obvious difference between the two. The Pax 2 has a more metallic and brushed textured finish, while the Pax 3 has a very elegant and highly polished metallic finish. While the Pax 3 is perhaps more pleasant to the eye, the Pax 2 is slightly more resistant to scratches and general wear and tear.
  • Heat up time: The Pax 2 has a slower heat up time (around 45 seconds) for the lowest heat setting, while the Pax 3 will reach the lowest heat setting in 15 seconds and the highest in 20 seconds. Naturally, the faster heat up time makes it easier to heat the device quickly and have a few puffs before putting the vape away again.
  • App Functionality: When it comes to temperature control and additional features via a smartphone application, the Pax 2 cannot even compete with the Pax 3. The app gives the Pax 3 a fifth temperature setting which can be customized to the user’s preference. It also offers several heating profiles which are unique and super effective.
  • Accessories: Of course, the Pax 3 comes with significantly more accessories than the Pax 2. In fact, it makes the accessory “package” of the Pax 2 look rather meek in comparison. Let’s take a closer look at the accessories on offer for each device.

Pax 2:

  • 1 Screen
  • Maintenance Kit
  • Charging Kit
  • Raised Mouthpiece
  • Flat Mouthpiece
  • Full Pack Oven Lid

Pax 3:

  • 3 Screens
  • Maintenance Kit
  • Charging Kit
  • Raised Mouthpiece
  • Flat Mouthpiece
  • Full Pack Oven Lid
  • Half Pack Oven Lid
  • Concentrate Insert
  • PAX Multi-Tool/Packing Tool

In all honesty, the Pax 3 “extras” make it worth the added cost. Even if just for the accessories alone, the Pax 3 seems like the obvious choice between these two. If you already own a Pax 2, though, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. But if you are in the market for a new vaporizer you might as well just go for the Pax 3. It’s perfect for a stealth user who doesn’t have a long time to have a session, and its major draw of course is that you can use it with both oils and dry flower (the Pax 2 is flower-only).

The Pax 3 vs Era

The Pax Era was released to the market around the same time as the Pax 3. The Pax Era is a very simple and easy-to-use vaporizer that’s intended for use with cannabis e-juice. Much like the Pax 3, you are also able to fine-tune the Era settings by using the designated app on your phone.

Let’s take a look at the four main features that we mentioned above, for the Pax 3 vs Era:

  • Exterior finish: The Pax Era is a pen-shaped design and not as visually appealing as the Pax 3. The Exterior is completed with a textured matte finish that will feel very nice in your hand. While the material has a very high-quality and durable feel, the Pax 3 is definitely more pleasant to the eye.
  • Heat up time: The Pax 3 heat-up time of 15 seconds is a real game-changer, but when it comes to the Pax Era, you can get instantaneous vapor from a draw as there’s no heat up time at all. All you do is pop in a cartridge and take a draw whenever you feel like it.
  • App functionality: The app performance of both the Pax 3 and Pax Era is very impressive. The Pax 3 has the added advantage of a fifth temperature setting, though, that can be set through the app.
  • Accessories: The Pax Era is a very simple and easy-to-use device as we mentioned above. All you need is the base and the cartridges.

The Pax Era is definitely an improvement on the Pax 2. However, the Pax 3 wins this battle overall. The Pax 3 offers several “extras,” and is a more sophisticated version when compared to the others. Essentially, the Pax 3 is a marriage of the Era and Pax 2, bringing all the best features of each together. But it is significantly more expensive, and if cost is an issue for you, then either the Pax Era or Pax 2 will serve you well, depending on what you are looking for.

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each of these devices in the table below.

Final Thoughts on PAX

PAX Labs are a definite front-runner in the world of vaporization technology. Since first introducing their portable, loose-leaf PAX vaporizer more than three years ago, sales have grown by 200%. This goes to show that this is a trusted brand who is changing the world of vaping as we know it.

With a growing demand in the vaporization category, the company has recognized that consumers have a high interest in innovative products. We don’t know about you, but we will be keeping our eye on this company, and are very intrigued to see what they release next.
