Do you need to know more? Not really. It really is in our opinion a true upgrade from the original PAX 1.
So let me just recap it all so you kinda get the idea what the new PAX 2 is all about.
Firstly when I received this I was really happy, I got it straight out the box and compared it to my original pax. Now it's just smaller, it's much more compact in comparison. What also stood out was the futuristic finish, we all really loved this raw look that it has and I think Ploom has made an awesome job doing with that. Just like the previous model it comes in a really sweet neat box, that gives you that apple feeling. Everything about it is just quality from the first second onwards.
The LED's are really cool, they have a swing like feeling to them and I think they have a much higher range, meaning it seems like they show way more colour. When you first turn the PAX on, you'll see it fade from purple to white in a really cool way from the bottom upwards. Once ready they change over in to a shimmering green.
Just like the original, the PAX 2 also has the automatic standby when you leave it for more than 30 seconds. In standby the unit does cool down and again you get to see a cool led show, but this time from white to blue and the "wave", which is what I'm going to call it, moves downwards. That means, when the PAX heats up, the LED's flow upwards and when it goes into standby then the LED's move downwards. It also means that you have 3 more minutes before shut down, which is not too bad considering the heat up time was just over a minute.
As for the heat settings the PAX 2 comes with 4 different modes. Simply keep the cap pressed down to change the temperature and you'll see after a second the LED's blink. We all agreed that 2 was the perfect temperature to start and then during the aromatherapy session we went up to 3.
The new PAX 2, doesn't have an actual docking station like the last model, but it does have this ultra cool magnetic charger. You simply place the PAX over the top and it connects and starts charging. To see how much it's charged the LED "petals" as they call them will indicate in stages of 25% how much the unit is charged. So 1 LED petal for 25% and 4 for 100%.
So now to a really cool change that we all really liked. The mouthpiece. The PAX 2 comes with 2 mouthpieces, one flat and one that resembles the old one I guess only you don't have to push it inwards for it to come out. The flat mouthpiece is really cool and very discreet and we had a mixed vote on both of them, so it was basically half of us preferred the raised and like I mentioned the other half agreed with me that the flat mouthpiece was awesome!
As for the flavour, I think that the PAX 2 has actually made some real improvements not only on the flavour it produces but also the vapor itself. Unlike many other vaporizers, I find that the first few times you can taste the plastic newness somehow. But with this unit I found it to have a very clean and clear taste with no aromas from device parts.
All in all, we're in love with the PAX 2 and I think you will be as well once you give it a go. As you know it is a difficult product to get your hands on, so we do expect this to sell fast.
As always if you have any questions don't hesitate to give us a call, use the online chat or send us a mail.
PAX 2 Vaporizer
Substantially smaller than the PAX 1, The PAX 2 has definitely met our standards and lives up to it's image of being the "Apple" amongst Vaporizers. With the new Pax 2 you no longer have to extend the mouthpiece which you did with the previous model. With a beautiful "raw" like finish, the new Pax 2 looks very space like and we personally like it better than the already great looking finish on the original Pax. Stock will go very fast, and we only have a few hundred to start with at the moment. So grab them whilst you can.
