The PAX 3: The Latest Vape from PAXLabs
PAX 3's Key Technical Improvements
The latest dry herb vaporizer from PAXLabs may seem similar in appearance to the PAX 2, but the technical developments that have been introduced make the PAX 3 far more functional than its predecessor. The PAX 3 has the same dimensions as the PAX 2, but a new glossy finish makes the vape look even sleeker than the PAX 2 did before it.
What I found most impressive with the new design is the heating speed - it now only takes 15 seconds to heat the chambers and your dry herbs; the PAX 3 now helpfully vibrates when the desired temperature has been reached. The chamber can hold .35g, but when this is too much dry herb for a single session, like when you're vaping solo, PAXLabs have included a very useful half pack oven lid in the complete set allowing you to pack less in the chamber and conserve your precious herbs.
The PAX 3 also boasts a superior battery life to the PAX 2 and a shorter recharge time from dead. The 10 year warranty goes to show the confidence PAXLabs has in the build quality of the PAX 3 and gives you the peace of mind knowing that your device will last.

New Glossed Finish
Everything about the PAX 3 makes it feel like a premium product, not least the aesthetics of it. Never before could you look this good vaping your favourite dry herbs and essential oils. The PAX 3 looks great in every colour, and it's no wonder why comparisons have been drawn up between the PAX 3 and another well-known Californian brand famous for it's plush design. In fact, if Apple were to make vapes, there would be little doubt over which brand they'd look to for inspiration.
Same Compact Dimensions as the PAX 2
The PAX 3 remarkably remains the same compact portable vaporizer that it's predecessor was, despite the improved specifications and functionality. It can still be held comfortably in the hand and easily slid away into your pocket, maintaining the discretion which added to the appeal of the PAX 2. It remains the definition of handheld portable vape.
The Complete Kit Provides Oil Compatibility
A much revered feature included with the complete kit is the Essential Oil insert, which enables you to switch it up from dry herb to oil vaping as you please. This brings an added dimension to the PAX 3, now making it a dual-functional vaporizer. The complete kit also comes with a Half Pack Oven Lid, allowing you to limit the amount of dry herb you pack into your PAX vape for those shorter, solo sessions - waste not want not is the key here, a very useful piece of kit.
Dry Herb Vaporization in 15 Seconds
This time round PAXLabs have outdone themselves by cutting the heating time in half from the PAX 2. This makes the PAX 3 ultra-convenient and this awesome vape is also able to cool down more quickly than its predecessor too. One thing's for sure, when PAXLabs bring out their next iteration, presumably the PAX 4, they are going to have a hard time improving the heat up time.
The PAX App Enables Precise Temperature Control
The introduction of the PAX App was met with skepticism by many, but the introduction of precise temperature control to the nearest degree and tailor-made modes dependent on your circumstances make it an exciting feature of the PAX 3. Now, you can change the heating sequences and speed of your vape to use when you're wanting a short vaping session on your own, or an intense one with added flavor. There are also three games included which can even be accessed without the app when your PAX has been synced via Bluetooth.
