Dry Herb Vape Review: PAX 3

I’ve had a Pax 2 for over a year. While I’ve had no issues with it (I still think it’s one of the best vapes out there, especially for those new to dry herb vaping), I thought it was time for an upgrade. 

So, rather than take the risk of trying a new brand, I got myself a brand spanking new Pax 3 from Ice Head Shop

Here’s what I think about it…

First impressions  

One of my favourite things about Pax devices are the aesthetics. Both the PAX 2 and 3 are small and stylish, fitting snugly in the palm with a clean, matte finish. 

With no bits sticking out (like plastic mouthpieces) it would be hard to tell exactly what it is from a distance – just a cool little gadget. If James Bond liked weed instead of martinis, he’d use a Pax. 

The Pax 3 I chose is sand (recently released colour) and seems to be pretty much the same as the Pax 2 in terms of dimensions. 

First vape

Turning on my Pax 3 for the first time, I notice straight away how quickly it heats up and is ready to use. The Pax 2 would take about a minute but this was ready to vape in about 20 seconds. I’m impressed.

It also vibrates slightly when you turn it on and then again when it reaches your chosen vape setting to let you know it’s ready. 

My first pull was super smooth, natural and very tasty. I had it on the third temperature setting and it was ideal for the bud I was using. The airflow was slightly better than the Pax 2 and the vapour clouds produced seemed a bit thicker. 

A few puffs hit me quite hard and I was immediately sold on the Pax 3. Well worth the upgrade, I thought.  

After 2 weeks use

Now that I’ve been using the Pax 3 for a few weeks, I can confidently say that Iove it more than my Pax 2. 

The airflow is better, battery lasts longer and, most importantly, tastier, thicker clouds thanks to a superior heating system. It also heats up a lot quicker! Perfect for when you’re on the go and need a discreet puff or two

Another new feature is the vibration alerts that let you know when the device is fully heated and ready to use, and when it’s back to full heat in between draws, increasing efficiency.  

I haven’t had a chance to try the vape out with concentrates (because I’m in Mexico), but there is a concentrate insert included in the PAX 3 Complete Kit bundle (which costs £50 more than the device on it’s own).

As well as being a great portable vape, it more than holds its own as a session vape. It keeps on giving thick vapour for 10/15 minutes easy – and that’s with Mexican weed, which can be nice but nowhere near as resinous and potent as UK bud.

Value for money?

Overall, I’m very happy with my upgrade to the Pax 3 and can highly recommend the model. The PAX 2 is still a great vape and the perfect choice for newbies thanks to its low price point (£129.99), but the PAX 3 is for those who want to step up their experience.

It looks just as sleek and cool (maybe even more so with the new colours), and the improvement in the heating function and airflow design make the experience that bit smoother and more enjoyable.  

It’s worth getting the Complete Kit for £219.99 because, as as well as the concentrate insert, you get the half-pack oven lid, a useful multi-tool and three spare screens. The device on its own is £169.99.
