What’s in the Pax 2 box?
Pax 2 comes in a nicely designed box, with a bunch of fancy details. Everything inside of it fits perfectly, just like a puzzle. The device comes with a:
- Maintenance kit (pipe cleaners and alcohol)
- Two mouthpieces
The kit is pretty basic and there aren’t many extra items in it. On the manufacturer’s website you can get a lot of different accessories in case you’d like to expand your kit, or find replacements if something gets broken or lost.
Pax 2 tech specs 8/10
Battery life & charging options
Pax 2 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. This larger battery provides approximately 30% more power than in the original Pax, and a little less than its successor Pax 3. However, this device offers a lot more than just decent battery life for its steep price.
When the battery runs out of power, it takes about 90-100 minutes to get fully charged, which isn’t really short, when compared to other vaporizers in this price range.
If you have your device fully charged and ready to go, and depending on the type of sessions you prefer, the battery will last for at least 5 sessions—but all of this is very flexible.
In general the Pax batteries are known for their durability, and you’ll definitely be using the device for years to come.
The unit is charged with a magnetic USB charging dock, which means you don’t need to plug in the charger.
During the charging process, the LED petals will flash in white. The number of pulsing petals indicates how much the battery is charged.
One LED light (petal) means that the battery is at around 25%. Two petals mean that the battery is between 25% and 50%, when it’s charged to around 75% three lights will be blinking. Four petals indicate that the battery is over 75%.
The light petals will stop pulsing once the device is ready for use.
To check how much battery you have left, just shake the device and the battery lights will flash—I think this is a very futuristic feature.
The only downside to the battery is that it’s not replaceable. Hence, if the battery dies, your Pax dies with it.
At this point, Pax’s fantastic warranty comes into play, which we’ll discuss later on.
Flowers, concentrates or both?
Pax 2 is compatible with dried herbs only.
If you’re not a big fan of dabbing, this unit will serve you just fine. But if you like to keep all of your options open, then Pax 3 is a better option.
FYI: On the company’s website you can purchase a concentrate insert, but it’s only compatible with the newest offering from the guys at Pax.
With or without LED?
None of the Pax devices have an LED screen. Instead, there are 4 LED lights shaped like flower petals, and they are here to indicate both the current temperature of the device but also the process of heating.
Although I prefer LED screens, I’m completely willing to give up a screen for a design as nice as this.
Any screen would definitely ruin the minimalist design, which is a feature that separates Pax products from all other vaporizers.
Since there is no precise temperature control, the flashing petals perform just fine.
The temperature on Pax 2 ranges between 182°C (360°F), and 216°C (420°F).
However, you cannot just select any temperature you want, as you have four presets to choose from, as shown in the photo below.
Since this unit isn’t compatible with concentrates, these four temperature settings are more than sufficient for vaping weed.
One small thing I didn’t really like about this vaporizer is that it gets a bit warm in your hand when it’s being used.
Also, during the heating process, you will want to manually lower the temperature and then increase it again so your weed doesn’t burn too fast.
The guys from Pax fixed this issue on Pax 3 by adding the option to change the temperature via the app on your phone.
Pax 2 vapor quality 9/10
Let’s talk about the most important thing when it comes to buying a vaporizer—the vapor quality.
The vapor Pax 2 produces is flawless.
Firstly, the airflow is completely smooth. If your vaporizer is clean there is practically no draw resistance, the vapor path is excellent and the device cools it down nicely.
This unit makes dense and thick vapor, but don’t expect huge clouds. Instead, you’ll get pure healthy vapor full of flavor which is very rich in cannabinoids and terpenes. Super smooth and gentle on the throat.
Pax 2 design 9/10
Pax 2’s design is immaculate. The minimalistic look paired with the high-quality materials makes a perfect symbiosis of ingenuity and engineering.
In fact, Pax devices are designed so nicely that they’re often called the iPhones of the vaping world.
The dimensions of the Pax 2 are 3.87” x 1.21” x 0.8”, so the unit is quite small, and the total weight is 90.2 grams, making it very portable and quite discrete.
At the moment you can choose either the black or silver colorway for your new Pax 2.
How to use Pax 2
Filling it up & chamber info
Pax 2’s chamber is actually quite large. It can fit between 0.3 and 0.4 grams of dried, grounded weed. This amount is definitely too much for a solo vaping session.
You can always take a break and basically split the packed oven into two sessions, but this isn’t recommended because the first session deteriorates the taste of the remaining weed.
Find the right strain for you
Whether you want to relieve anxiety, pain or depression, the right strain is out there. Use our online tool to narrow the search.
However, with the release of Pax 3, the company included the half oven lid with the new device, but unfortunately it isn’t suitable with the Pax 2.
To start using it, finely grind your weed, open the lid and place the herb in the chamber. Close the lid and put the mouthpiece back into position.
How to set the temperature on Pax 2
Before you start using your new Pax 2 for the first time, make sure it’s fully charged. Connect your USB charger to your computer (or adapter), and place the device on the charger until all petals stop pulsating.
To turn it on, press the power button located in the center of the mouthpiece. Choose the desired temperature by holding down the mouthpiece button for a few seconds.
The petals will change from green to yellow, yellow to orange and orange to red, depending on the number of times you press the power button. Once you enter the temperature mode the device will start heating the cannabis.
While the Pax 2 is heating the petals will pulsate, and when the LED lights turn green, the device is ready for use. Don’t start vaping while the unit is still heating up.
To exit the temperature mode press the power button again, or just shake the device.
How to clean Pax 2
Pax 2 is a low-maintenance device but it needs to be cleaned occasionally to ensure maximum longevity. To clean it, you first need to remove the mouthpiece and the oven lid.
Take one pipe cleaner from the cleaning kit and dip it in isopropyl alcohol. Scrub back and forth the internal oven screen.
Soak the screen in isopropyl alcohol, but don’t do the same for the oven lid.
Instead, clean the mouthpiece and the inside of the oven with a cotton swab which you soaked in the alcohol.
When all the pieces are dry, put everything back together and you are ready to use your device again.
Pax 2 standout features
Pax 2 comes with a 10 year warranty, which is way more than its main competitors and more than fair in my opinion.
Pax devices in general appear as extremely durable, high-quality gadgets.
So if you ask me, when we take everything into consideration, Pax 2 is quite something.
