- Vapor Quality - Throughout a vaping session, the Pax 2 portable vaporizer will provide plentiful clouds of vapor that are highly potent. At the beginning of a session, the dry herb vaporizer produces flavorful vapor that is very smooth, but by the end of the session, vapor will become less flavorful and run hotter.

- Guarantee - Ploom offers a 10-year warranty on the Pax 2 herbal vaporizer, which is longer than what's provided on other portable vaporizer models.

- Prep Time - You won't have a difficult time loading the Pax 2, as it's very simple to use. The vape also reaches working temperature rather quickly.

- Portability - The Pax 2 dry herb vaporizer is very compact for easy carrying. The silicone mouthpiece can be hidden away inside of the lid to keep it sanitary when you're on the go.

- Ease of Use - Operating the Pax 2 is very straightforward, as the controls are intuitively designed. One of the nicest things about the Pax 2 is that it allows for both short draws and long draws. This device can have an uncomfortable level of resistance if it's not cleaned often. Any build-up on the interior screen can interfere with airflow. As a result, this vaporizer is more maintenance intensive than some other portable vapes.

- Heating and Temperature Regulators - There are four temperature settings available with the Pax 2, so you can set the heat to the ideal level to suit what you're vaping.

- Power Supply - On a single charge, the Pax 2 can be used for 90 minutes, which is longer than many other portable vaporizers. Unfortunately, the portable vape takes longer to charge than most competitors, requiring three full hours to reach full battery status.

Pax 2 Versus the Pax Classic

  • SIZE - The Pax 2 is more compact in size.
  • STYLE - The Pax 2 has a more modern appearance, with its silver polished aluminum housing.
  • MOUTHPIECE - Pax Classic has a retractable mouthpiece, while the Pax 2 has a silicone rubber mouthpiece that disappears into the top. This makes care easier.
  • DRAW RESISTANCE - It's easier to pull from the Pax 2 than from the Pax Classic vaporizer.
  • CHAMBER - The Pax 2 holds more material than the previous model.
  • BATTERY - With the Pax 2 vape, you get a longer battery life at 90 minutes versus 1 hour; however, it takes three times as long to charge at 3 hours versus 1 hour for the Pax Classic vaporizer.
