Bigger, better and more powerful than ever the PAX 2 vaporizer is back with a blast as it tries to force itself on top the the elite product pile. It comes pretty close too; as we’ll see this is a notable improvement in what was already a very decent device – it just lacks a little something to snap all the excellent features that it boasts into one total and complete package.
Additional Power & Capacity
The biggest advance is in relation to both capacity and temperature range. The PAX 2 has a slightly smaller capacity than its forebear yet still weighs slightly less. Make no mistake this is still a rather large vaporizer but it doesn’t feel un-weildly to use. This is a pleasant addition that’s even better when the temperature range has been expanded ten degrees in both directions – now performing to a very respectable360 to 420 Fahrenheit. Alongside this the actual ‘drawing’ system has been advanced so that the oven will respond naturally as it is being used – keeping vapor production consistent, smooth and absolutely within burn.
Maintenance & Use
The first model from this VAX series wasn’t the easiest to keep clean when using the oven with herbs, and this has been assisted thanks to a reworking of the oven. As mentioned above this oven is a little smaller (10% or thereabouts) yet it is a more natural fit, deeper and less wide that helps avoid spillage and makes for a more readily cleanable compartment.
As may be expected the PAX 2 uses plenty of power, but another improvement has been the battery charge life being significantly improved – typically an estimated 30% longer use per charge. Even on high settings a full charge ought to last around an hour and a half in near constant use – impressive for such a powerful performer.
Vape production is highly impressive and even on lower temperatures the production is consistently deep, flavourful and bold. As an overall design it’s among the best performing vape pens going and also refreshingly straight forward to use too.
As standard the PAX 2 comes with quite a few useful accessories:
- PAX 2 Personal Vaporizer
- Magnetic charging dock
- Micro USB charging system
- 10 pipe cleaners
- 1 bottle ISO
- 2 interchangeable mouthpieces along with screens
The PAX 2 is a great all round vape pen and will not disappoint anyone who chooses to splash out and take their vaping to the next level. It’s consistent and reliable thanks to it’s extensive range of setting and safety/temperature controls, yet as mentioned at the top of this review there does just seem to be something not quite there. It’s a personal choice but the mouthpieces feel just a little flimsy compared the overall quality expressed throughout the rest of the product, which is a pity as so much effort has gone into improving the product internally this was one of the more obvious features that could have used a revamp. It’s still definitely in the top five products of it’s kind though – and very deservedly so too!
