Review of Pax Vaporizer by Ploom: Pros and Cons

Vaporizer Reviews - Find the Perfect Vape Pen banner - VaporPlants

The Ploom Pax Portable Vaporizer is a handheld vaporizer that has been on the market for a few years now. More than 500,000 Pax portable vape models have been sold by Ploom since its initial release, and with sales like that, it's no surprise that this herbal vaporizer has a lot of appealing benefits.

Basics of the Pax Vaporizer by Ploom

Pax Vaporizer by Ploom for Marijuana Colors Side by Side

- Price - The Pax vaporizer has a recommended retail price of $249.99, but here at VaporPlants.com, we sell it for $199. Its price tag puts it on the high end of the average price range for portable vaporizers.

- Vapor Quality - The vapor quality of the Pax Ploom is excellent in terms of taste and smoothness, but clouds from the vape are lighter and not as large as what you get from some other vapes. In addition to producing tasty, pleasing vapor, the Pax vape earns top marks for efficiency. The design of the chamber exposes more of the dry herbs to the heat from the coil, greatly decreasing the risk of waste by promoting even heating.

- Warranty - Ploom provides a 10-year warranty on the Pax, which is an extremely long warranty for any vaporizer.

- Prep Time -The Pax vape is very easy to fill, thanks to its bottom loading design. The vaporizer gets hot in 1 minute or less, even if the battery has been greatly depleted. This is uncommon among portable vaporizers; usually, when battery life declines, heat up time is much longer.

- Portability - For a portable vape, the Pax by Ploom is a rather compact vaporizer. It fits easily into a pocket, and the mouthpiece retracts to allow for easy transport.

- Ease of Use - Even those who are vaping for the first time will be able to figure out how to use the Pax vape like a pro in very little time. The light indicator on the unit lets you know when it's time to vape, and you can get efficient vaporization with both short and long draws. One downside to the herbal vaporizer is that it has more resistance than many other portable vaporizer models. People with weak lungs may have difficulty using it.

- Heating Options - The Pax Ploom vaporizer has three temperature setting options: 375°F, 390°F, and 410°F. Our testing found that all three temperature settings provide pleasing results. The low temperature setting produces lighter vapor, while the high setting gives you denser vapor.

- Power Supply - When fully charged, the Ploom Pax vaporizer can be used for about 1 hour of continuous vaping, which is longer than what's possible with some other portable vapes. One reason for the exceptional battery life is that the Pax vape has a motion detector that automatically puts the handheld vaporizer into power save mode when you leave it unattended and still for 20 seconds. This feature doesn't compromise performance and helps to extend battery life. If allowed to drain completely, the battery takes about 90 minutes to charge, which is about average.

Tips for Using the Pax by Ploom

  • Be sure to lubricate the mouthpiece on the vaporizer after every few uses. If you don't keep the mouthpiece lubricated, it can be hard to pull the mouthpiece in and out of the vape.
  • Clean the mouthpiece with an alcohol wipe, and use a pipe cleaner to remove excess herbs from the heating chamber after every 5 to 10 uses.
  • Grind your herbs finely to improve efficiency.
