Pax 3 - Not Your Average Vaporizer
The main drawing point for the Pax 3 that sets it apart from other contenders for the best portable vaping plaudits is the conduction heating technology. Meaning you don’t have to worry about loosely packing your buds in. As such, the extremely easy to load chamber can pack in slightly more than 0.3g of flower.
The conduction technology makes it better for users of similar priced convection vaporizers, such as the firefly, which are much bulkier and can only hold about half the amount of flower because you have to pack them loosely to allow for airflow.
The Pax 3 also allows you to choose your method of consumption because the chamber allows you to vape concentrates in addition to flower. It is a perfect way of discreetly but efficiently vaping concentrates, which puts it high on people's lists of top portable vaping solutions. If you wish to consume concentrates, then just ensure you purchase the Complete Kit, which comes with the concentrate insert.
In addition to all of this, you can control the temperature at which the vape operates if you connect to the vape via smartphone. Pax Labs have developed a smartphone app that gives users complete control over the device. This personalizes the experience for the user, showing the care Pax Labs have gone to create a vape that suits the tastes of all users.
Operating a Pax 3 Vaporizer
You’ve heard about what the Pax 3 looks like and how well it operates. But now let us see how you operate the device.
The general consensus of top-end vaporizers is that they are difficult to use. The Pax 3 nips this trend in the bud and proves this theory wrong with the fact that it couldn’t be any easier to use. We will explain this for you and also give tips on how you can get the best out of your sessions with the Pax 3.
As with all conduction vapes, you must start by ensuring the material is ground as finely as possible. This ensures that the heat is distributed as evenly as possible through the herbs within the chamber, ensuring the highest quality of vapor. To achieve this precise level of uniformity within your ground herbs, you should use the Chewy Grinder or the NewVape Fine Grinder, which is specifically built for use with vaporizers.
Once ground, you will notice upon the base of the Pax 3, there is a removable lid. You can remove this lid to expose the conduction oven chamber, which you can pack with as much material as you desire.
You now must ensure that the material is packed down into the chamber as tightly as possible, which ensures that the material is evenly heated for the best quality vapor. To allow for a tight pack, the Pax 3 conveniently comes with a multi-tool, which you can find in the box.
The point of ensuring the herbs are packed down tightly cannot be expressed enough. It will affect the performance, efficiency and flavor if they are not. You can now place a removable lid back onto the device, securing the herbs inside.
You may have already noticed a button present on the top of the Pax 3 within the centre of the mouthpiece. This is the activation button that you will press to turn on the device. This will immediately fire the heating elements within the Pax 3, starting off the vaporization process. You can turn the device off again by pressing the button again.
Controlling the Temperature
You can hold down the activation button for two seconds if you wish to control the temperature. At this point the Pax 3 will flash and enter ‘temperature control mode’.
When in temperature control mode, you can shuffle through the four preset temperature levels as indicated via the colour of the LED indicator. Each time you press the activation button, a new temperature will be selected. You can then hold the activation button down for a further two seconds, which will select the temperature and begin the heat up.
For complete precision with the temperature control, you can connect to the vaporizer via the downloadable Pax app, connect the vaporizer to the phone via bluetooth.
The 4 preset temperatures are represented by: -
- One Yellow Petal - 360°F (182°C)
- Two Orange Petals - 380°F (193°C)
- Three Orange Petals - 400°F (204°C)
- Four Red Petals - 420°F (216°C)
When the device is heating up, the lights will show:- Four Purple Petals - Heating up; Four Green Petals - Ready to go!
So, the four green petals are what you want to see. They are the indication you can begin to consume the vapor.
The draw duration for the maximum amount of vapor is approximately 10 seconds. So, a nice, easy draw is advisable with the pax 3 vaporizer just like other conduction vapes. Just ride very slowly like you sipping from a glass of hot tea.
When using your pax 3 with concentrates, it is advised that you do not overfill the concentrate insert and ensure that your concentrate does not get into the air holes while loading as it could clog your device.
Lower temperatures are preferably for herbs and you can better enjoy your concentrates concentrates by adjusting your device to the highest temperature.
The Pax 3 vaporizer comes with a 10 year warranty and is definitely one of the best value for money portable vapes on the market at the moment.
