There are very many vaporizers out in the world for us to choose from, and selecting an appropriate one can be difficult. The good news is, we’re here to help.

In this review we take a look at the PAX Plus vaporizer, a great all-rounder that we’d recommend to practically anyone looking for a new vape. It’s small, attractive, and has all the markers of a quality device. Its only real drawback is that it doesn’t offer the very best vapour quality on the market. Keep reading for an in-depth review.

Introducing the PAX Plus Vaporizer

The PAX Plus conduction vaporizer is the newest—fifth—vaporizer from PAX. It retains the same portable size as the PAX 2 and 3, but comes with an upgraded mesh chamber and other features. For those who want a stylish, highly portable, discreet, and top-quality vaporizer for dry herb and concentrates, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Sure, there are smaller vapes available, and there are more powerful, more efficient vapes available, but none marry portability and quality quite like the Plus. What’s more, for under 200 euros, it’s fairly affordable too.

If you’re really after portability and discreet size above all, then consider choosing the PAX Mini.

PAX Plus vs PAX 3

The PAX 3 came out in 2016, and the PAX Plus remains, in many ways, quite unchanged. Still, what few developments it does boast make it well worth it.

Here’s what’s different with the PAX Plus:

  • No need for an app: The PAX 3 required an accompanying app to use, while the PAX Plus can be used alone. While controlling a vape from your phone might seem cool at first, it’s much easier to use this vape as a standalone object.
  • 3D-printed chamber: This is subtle, but the oven’s chamber is much easier to remove and clean, which can be particularly helpful for those who like to use concentrates.
  • Colored mouthpieces: The included flat and raised mouthpieces are now color coded.
  • Clearer LED lights: The lights, which also tell you which setting you’re using, are now very clear, making use easier.

PAX Plus vs PAX Mini

The PAX Mini is a vape for those who desire small hits on the go.

Here’s how the Mini differs from the Plus:

  • Chamber size: The PAX Plus has a significantly bigger chamber.
  • Overall size: The PAX Mini is smaller than the PAX Plus, but only marginally.
  • Settings: The PAX Plus has four vape settings while the PAX Mini has only one.

PAX Plus Pros and Cons

Before we get into the finer details of the PAX Plus, we’ll briefly look at some general pros and cons to understand exactly what this vape has to offer, and what it doesn’t.


Here’s what’s most attractive about the PAX Plus:

  • Size to quality ratio: Perhaps the PAX Plus' most desirable feature is that it is very small and discreet, without greatly sacrificing the quality of the vaping experience. Yes, there are more powerful options out there, but the degree of difference when put side by side with the PAX Plus is minimal.
  • Battery Life: The battery life is around 2.5 hours—or 8–10 smoking sessions. This, combined with its portability, makes the Plus great for those on the move.
  • Appearance: PAX products are generally very sexy and stylish. If you like seamless, sleek products, the Plus will suit you well. They’re very much the Apple products of the vaping world.
  • Four built-in modes: Rather than fiddling with temperature settings, the Plus comes pre-programmed with four modes, which make using it very easy. More on this below.
  • Quick heating speed: The chamber fully heats in just 20 seconds.
  • Small enough for solo use, big enough for sharing: Though small, and perfect for using alone, the chamber in this vape is big enough to pack and share, making it versatile.
  • Vapour quality: The quality of vapour offered by the Plus is as good as it can be for a conduction vape device.


Generally this vape is great, but for purists who, above all else, prize vapour quality, then this vape might not be quite as desirable:

  • Vapour quality: Among conduction vaporizers, the vapour quality of the PAX Plus is very impressive. However, conduction ovens can only go so far, and the PAX Plus does reach a limit. Enthusiasts who want the very best in vapour quality will have to look elsewhere.
  • Few upgrades compared to PAX 3: The difference between the Plus and its PAX 3 predecessor is somewhat minimal, which means owners of the 3 may not choose to jump ship for the newer device, unless they’re in the market for a new one anyway.
  • Lack of customisation: For some this will be a benefit, but hardcore vapers who want to control as much as possible might feel restricted by the PAX Plus’ presets.
  • It comes with a premium cost: The PAX Plus is generally considered to be one of the best vapes around, but it is still quite expensive. There are pricier options, but there are also cheaper options too. If you’re well into your vaping journey, then it’s probably worth the price. But if you only indulge from time to time, you could save yourself some money by opting for something more inexpensive.

About the PAX Plus Vape

The following section will outline in more detail the design, specifications, and features of the PAX Plus vaporizer.


The dimensions of the PAX Plus are 98 × 31 × 22mm, and it weighs 90 grams.

Oven and Temperature Range

The PAX Plus uses a conduction oven with a maximum capacity of 0.35 grams. The half-pack lid will reduce this to around .2 grams, for smaller sessions.

It has a temperature range of 182–240°C, broken into the following settings:

  • Stealth mode, indicated by one illuminated petal: 182–193°C
  • Efficiency mode, indicated by two illuminated petals: 193–204°C
  • Flavor Mode, indicated by three illuminated petals: 204–215°C
  • Boost Mode, indicated by four illuminated petals: 214–240°C (best suited to concentrates)

The PAX Plus is the perfect versatile, all-around vape. Though its size makes it perfect for taking on the go, this doesn’t at all detract from its viability as an all-day, every-day vaporizer.


The PAX Plus retails for around €200, putting it somewhere between affordable and expensive. If you’re after a budget vape, you can find cheaper ones without sacrificing too much in terms of quality. However, with that said, you can also find much more expensive vapes that won’t offer you anything substantial in terms of quality.

The bottom line is that, if you’re happy to spend a fair bit of money on a vape, then this is one of the best to splash out on.


Both to cater to its size and to make its use as streamlined as possible, the PAX Plus doesn’t come overloaded with features. But it does what it needs to do—plus a little more. We’ve covered the most important features already, but here are a few more to consider:

  • Haptic feedback: The vape will vibrate when it has reached the appropriate temperature.
  • Lip sensitivity: It knows when you’re using it, how hard you're drawing, and all the necessary temperatures. As such, it is able to adjust the temperature of the oven throughout use, in order to offer the best results.
  • Standby mode: Thanks to the internal accelerometer, the PAX Plus will place itself on standby if you leave it stationary. It will then resume heating when you pick it up and move it. This ensures you don’t waste bud.
  • LED indicators: The LED petals on the PAX logo illuminate to let you know what’s happening.

What’s in the Box?

The PAX Plus comes with:

  • PAX Plus vaporizer
  • Flat and raised mouthpiece
  • Half-pack oven lid
  • 3D oven screens
  • Concentrate insert
  • Multi-tool
  • Wire brush
  • USB charger

How to Use the PAX Plus Vaporizer

The PAX Plus is really easy to use.

  • To turn it on, press and hold the mouthpiece down.
  • To cycle through the settings, press down on the center of the mouthpiece. The illuminated petals will tell you which setting you’ve selected.

That’s pretty much it—so you can hardly go wrong!

PAX Plus: Verdict

The PAX Plus is a really good cannabis vaporizer, and we’d recommend it to most users. If you cherish portability and style alongside good vapour quality, then the Plus is, without a doubt, a fabulous option.

There are only two categories of consumers we’d steer toward a different offering; first, those who are very new to vaping, or vape very infrequently, and don’t want to spend much money. For those on a tight budget, there are many discount options out there.

Second, those who, above all, require the highest quality in terms of flavor. If you fall into this category, then a convection or hybrid vape is better suited to you. That being said, these can be difficult to carry around with you, so if you’re looking for a high-quality vape to use when you’re on the move, the PAX Plus could still be a great option.

Overall, this is one of the best cannabis vaporizers on the market, and most will be very satisfied with it.
