If you're scouting the web for a herbal vape pen or you are already familiar to some of these products, chances are you've heard about PAX vaporizers. The PAX 3 is one of the best devices we tested and it still performs flawlessly even after dozens of weeks of intense usage. And looks like things didn't stop there because the guys over at PAX Labs have recently released a brand new version of the product. It's called the PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer and not only does it sum up everything that made its predecessor shine, but also comes with a couple of extra features
One of the best dry herb vaporizers just got better
And while on first glance it might look almost identical to the PAX 2, this bad boy hides some pretty neat characteristics under that shiny body. Made from high-polished anodized aluminum the brand new PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer takes only 15s to reach temperature and comes with a 10-year warranty. It is available in four different color options – Rose Gold, Silver, Black and Gold – and besides loose leaf you can also use it with concentrates.
The PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer comes packed in a beautiful cardboard gift box and inside you will find the device itself, two mouthpieces, two oven lids, three spare screens, the concentrate insert, the charging dock and cable, the multi tool, cleaning kit and user manual. In terms of size, shape and oven capacity it is exactly the same as the PAX 2, however the battery has been boosted to 3500 mAh. This gives the new device excellent autonomy and it can last for as long as 90+ minutes when using lower temperature settings.
Similar to the PAX 2 plus some new features
And speaking about temperature, the PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer has four default values you can choose from, however, these can be edited via the dedicated mobile phone app. This device is operated by a single button located in the middle of the mouthpiece and with it you can turn it on or off or select the temperature setting. And because it has a built-in accelerometer, you can also check out the remaining battery charge by shaking the pen's body.
You get two separate mouthpieces with the device, one that sits flush with the body and one that sticks out a bit on the top. We very much preferred the flat one, which we first encountered on the PAX 2. The draw feels more natural and it even helps enhance flavor, despite requiring some time to get used to.
Two oven doors and a concentrates insert
The new features on the PAX 3 Dry Herb Vaporizer include three different oven doors. The first one is identical to the one on its predecessor and lets you fully load the oven with packed dry herb material. The second one let you enjoy a great vaping experience when the oven is half full, and this is ideal for individual or shorter sessions. Finally we have the concentrates insert, which may look like it's faulty since the door won't fully slide in, but it's probably due to the design. It's a bit complicated to use since it's so tiny, but it does the job perfectly.
The multi tool acts also as a keychain so you can easily carry it around and it's great for packing or emptying the chamber once the session has ended. The charger is magnetic and snaps into place just like on the older PAX and everything feels futuristic and high end.
