Announcing The Pax By Ploom
Recently a new portable vaporizer was revealed that will be released early this August called PAX. It is a portable conduction style vaporizer that promises to deliver a device that fits in the palm of your hand, making it an excellent option for people who are on the go. Although the device is not out yet, some details have started to emerge.
The price point is going to be $249. This seems to be the price point a lot of portable vaporizer manufactures are settling on. I have no previous experience with this manufacture. I can’t honestly guess if the build quality and performance will be worth the cost. Only time will tell if this device is worth the price tag. The reviews of their previous device seem rather favorable. If that is any indication of how this device will fare, then it could be a favorable sign.

To turn the device on you press down on the mouth piece. This causes it to pop up and start heating up the device. They claim the device heats up quickly. Pax heats up in as little as 30 seconds. It can be heated to three different temperatures. You can alter the temperate settings by pressing a button inside the top of the device. The different temperatures are:
- Low = 370 deg. F (188 C)
- Med = 390 deg. F (199 C)
- Hot = 410 deg. F (210 C)

Pax Battery Life
The internal Lithium-ion battery charges in one hour via the plug-in charging stand (included). The charge lasts an estimated two hours of continuous use, and about a week under typical use.
Pax’s exterior is anodized aluminum (very Apple MacBook-esque) in either Onyx (black), Cobalt (blue), or Amethyst (purple) colors. All plastic components are food safe engineering plastics. It measures just 4 1/8″ x 1.3″ x 7/8″. The vapor pathway is medical grade stainless steel, just like The heating element at the bottom of the unit, also known as the “oven”.
Can the mouthpiece be cleaned in isopropyl alcohol?
Yes, the mouthpiece can be entirely submersed. The lid, however is best to clean without totally dunking. Just take a q-tip or similar with isopropyl and wipe it down.
How deep is the oven chamber?
Approximately 10mm (3/8″) deep.
