Pros: The Pax is super easy to use, small and portable, has a sweet design, and you get great vapor quality and taste.
Cons: There's a little draw resistance, so while this isn't really a huge negative, it is worth mentioning.

The Pax by Ploom is one of my personal favorites when it comes to portable vaporizers. While there are a few minor things that I’m not crazy about, I stil use it a good majority of the time when I’m out and about.

Here’s what I have to say in my Pax by Ploom review.

How It Works

To start with, you just have to remove the bottom of the unit (“oven”) and then pack your herb into it.

What makes this really neat is that the cover of the filling chamber is magnetic so it can pop on/off really easy – it’s kind of like using a Pez dispenser. You just push down on one side of it and the other side pops up.pax by bloom

From there, you just fill it up with your favorite material, place the magnetic cover right back on, push in the mouth-piece, wait for a clicking sound, let it spring up into the “on” position and you’re ready to do your thing.

What I love is that it only takes just a minute or two for this thing to warm up! The indicator light will turn purple to show that it’s charging.

If you want to know how much battery you have at any given time, all you do is shake the unit and it will tell you how much battery it has which is really awesome.

The light also changes color to say what heat mode it’s in which we will get to below as well as letting you know when its in low power standby mode.

Taking drags off it takes a little getting used to. You have to take short drags, much like you would on a cigar. Trying to take long pulls just won’t work.

Charging it is also a breeze. The unit comes with a stand, and it’s as simple as removing the mouthpiece and putting it on the stand, which is plugged into the wall. I admit that I wish there was some sort of USB charging option (an apparently popular opinion in almost every Pax by Ploom review I read other than my own), but this was obviously one of the things sacrificed for a such an awesome design.

Heat Settings

The Pax comes with 3 different heat settings:

  1.  Yellow  – 370°F (188°C)
  2.  Orange (default)  – 390°F (199°C)
  3.  Red  – 410°F (210°C)

It’s a conduction vape, so you can expect that you’re not going to get as even a bake as you would with a convection one, but the different settings help you get the best bake you can. The button to change heats is hidden under the mouthpiece, and the indicator light lets you know what setting you’re on (yellow for low, orange for medium, and red for high).

Battery Life

The Pax comes with a rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery that heats up in under a minute and can produce vapor for up to 2 hours which is really impressive for a portable vaporizer. Recharging runs at around 1.5 hours which isn’t too bad either.

What’s In the Box

The packaging on this is excellent, and it comes with a number of things, including:

  • 1 Pax Unit with 1 Screen
  • 1 Mouthpiece and 1 Lid
  • 1 AC Wall Charger Dock
  • 1 Small Cleaning Kit that has5 Pipe Cleaners & 5 Cleaning Wipes
  • 2 packets of Mouthpiece Lubricant
  • 1 Pax Instruction Manual

It would have been nice if it came with some sort of travel case, but it’s not a big deal.

How to Take Care of It

Cleaning and care are actually really simple on this unit much like vape pens. The bowl itself is pretty much self-contained, so cleaning it is as simple as wiping it out. Otherwise, the rest of the unit can just be wiped down and the mouthpiece sanitized. Fortunately, the Pax comes with a cleaning kit that makes all of these tasks easy.

Beyond that, the best advice on taking care of it is do your best not to drop it. As obvious as this sounds, I’ve heard some folks tell me that the grip is a little slippery and it can happen. The good thing is that it can survive the fall and still work most likely, but it’s a smooth surface and will get scuffed up pretty quickly.

If your nickname is “Butterfingers“, however, opt for a case.

Final Thoughts and PV Pro Tips

This vape is a little on the pricey side, and any good Pax by Ploom review should mention that, but it’s worth every penny in my opinion.

While there are a few small little issues, they practically mean nothing when you compare this one to other portable vaporizers. The good news is that the benefits far outweigh any of them. One of the best things I like is that you can get a good 5-6 sessions out of this thing and that it only takes around 1.5 hours to charge. Overall, I think it’s one of the best products in the marketplace and you definitely get your money’s worth.
