I read a Pax2 Vaporizer review that said this was a vaporizer worthy of Batman. With a statement like that, I just had to get my hands on one and test it, especially now that I gave up smoking for vaping. This vape works with dry herbs like tobacco, oils, or concentrates.
Although the Pax2 price is a bit high at a MSRP price of $259.95, it has one of the longest warranties on the market.
The Pax comes with a lengthy ten-year warranty as standard, so if you do encounter any issues, you can rest assured they will happily remedy the situation.

A tip of the hat goes off to the product designers of the Pax 2 vaporizer by Ploom for such a luxurious yet simple design. Barely more than 3.87” long and slightly less than 1.21” wide with a 085” Dia, the Pax 2 easily fits in the palm of your hand or pocket.The Pax 2 is roughly 25% smaller and 10% lighter than the original Pax.
Its size is more than conducive for portability and incognito use. The Pax 2 is also silent when in use, adding to the list of reasons you should take this device just about anywhere.
While size and noise matter, so does complexion. When most vaporizers come with just black or white options. The Pax 2 breaks the gray-scale hued mold. You can choose from an appealing array of anodized aluminum exterior finishes such as amethyst, cobalt, emerald, or onyx.
The vapor pathway is constructed of medical grade stainless steel, as is the heating element at the bottom of the unit, also known as the oven. The Pax 2 uses an another type of oven which is deeper but not extensive. The Pax 2 heating oven is about 91% the size of the original Pax.
A four-slitted LED indicator light adds an element of technological style. With its compact size, sleek color choices and solid materials, the Pax 2 strongly reminds one of an unassuming iPod mini.
What can this portable vaporizer pipe do for me?
One of the more sleek features of the Pax 2 is the LED indicator light. This glowing feature helps users to monitor the vape. A quick glance will show its heating status. You can moderate the temperature level, or check its battery life with ease.
Because the Pax 2 is externally button-less (further maintaining its luxurious, modern design) it has a removable mouthpiece that conceals the operational switches.The new temperature ranges from 360F -420F (~180C – 215C) compared to the Pax at 370F – 410F (~188C – 210C).
This is where you can only turn on/off the vaporizer and toggle between the three heat levels.
- Yellow Low 360F -420F (~180C – 215C)
- Orange Med 370F – 410F (~188C – 210C)
- Red Hot 410 deg. F (210 C)
No matter what the temperature is set to, the Pax 2 never gets hot enough to burn its contents, ensuring clean and pure vapor. Nor does it get hot enough to be painful or even slightly uncomfortable to the touch.
A built-in motion sensor ‘Lip Sensing Technology’ allows the mouthpiece to sense the lips. A signal transmitted to the heater telling it to ramp up the temperature a bit to keep a stable environment in the oven. It will also recognize when the Pax 2 has been set down on a stationed surface. The Pax 2 will then go to sleep like a cell phone would, providing safety and substance longevity.
The moment it is handled again, the Pax’s oven clicks on and is ready for vaping within seconds. Afraid you might pack a load, get distracted by a shiny object, and set the Pax down? No need to worry! The Pax will sense this and shut itself off automatically.
The same motion sensor that measures temperature and automatically shuts off the Pax is also purposed for users to check the battery life. Average battery life is between charges is three to five uses, or up to two hours of continuous use according to reviews.
Want to check the battery? Only give the Pax a gentle shake to get a battery status read. It uses a USB charging system and an external dock that attaches to the unit magnetically. The LED light will blink green when fully charged, or glare red when it needs to be juiced.
Small but mighty, don’t let its iPod-rescue stature fool you. The Pax 2 doesn’t just boast an intelligent and efficient compact design, but it also offers a potent and sizable payload. It’s oven, approximately 4” x 0.73” x 0.34”, can hold 0.35g of a tightly packed load. PAX 2 boasts an instant and great oven where from which you can expect pure vapor in less than a minute.
But like an iPod, it doesn’t produce smoke and, as such, can be used in non-smoking areas. A stretch I know but, who isn’t trying to emulate Apple in some shape or form nowadays?
Pros and cons of the Pax2 vaporizer by Ploom
The sleek, modern design allows for supreme portability. Use it where you want, when you want.
The Pax 2’s covert engineering allows me to vape nearly anywhere you can think of vaping. The stealth factor is beyond ideal.
With no burn or smoke smell, I can use this handy little device where desired and be completely incognito. These are the two best benefits of this vaporizer. Although some customers complain about the mouthpiece breaking if the Pax2 is dropped, luckily this piece is removable and can be easily replaced thanks to Ploom’s 10-year limited warranty.
Customers that for whatever reason, do need to reach out to Ploom’s support team have given them rave reviews on support responsiveness, politeness and a willingness to go above and beyond to solve the issue.
Maintenance is critical
One thing to keep in mind. In order to extend the life of the Pax 2 and ensure high-quality vapor for each use, the Pax 2 does require some attentive maintenance. Because of its compact size, cleaning can be a bit tricky. The user manual will guide you through proper maintenance.
Some other vaporizers may require less maintenance or may be less expensive, but you are losing out on the extreme portability of the Pax 2. Written reviews say the Pax 2 is “bringing smoking into the 21st century” and that it’s a “vaporizer worthy of Batman.”
While we can see Bruce Wayne opting to light up with a Pax 2 because of its batmobile-matching onyx finish, it’s the simple yet sophisticated functionality that will keep him coming back for more.
