Are you also surprised by the speedy advancements in vape technology every time a new one is developed and made available for commercial use?
Every new vape seems to be a better version of its predecessor, whether it’s a new vape from a vintage vaporizer company or new vape from a new start-up.
Each one is more functional, and/or beautiful, or lighter, or smarter, or smaller or just better than the one before. Pax Ploom vaporizer from San-Francisco-based, Ploom, is all of these things.
Add sleek, ingenious, sexy, stylish, practical, discreet and ahead of its time. If this thing is due out later this year, I’m looking forward to see what vape is going to outdo the functionality and design of Pax, if that’s possible. It is already in the next few years, looking back, and waiting for the vaporizer competition to catch up.
Chasing Down A Pax
It took us VapeBusters some time to chase down someone at Vape World to get a hold of a Pax and give it a try. We called and called and, like, called.
And, we were even considering holding up a boombox over our heads outside Vape World headquarters and playing “A Girl Like You”, like, really loud.
But, before we could do that, they called us back and promised to send us a Pax vaporizer if we, like, stopped calling. It actually arrived today as I‘m writing this.
And, that was cool, because it’s, like, hard to find D batteries for boomboxes these days.
So what? We wanted it, ok!? I mean, it’s so pretty. And, it looks like feels so nice to hold, and press on and off, and shake to see how much juice is left in the battery by looking at its seductive “X” shaped LED screen.
We had to have it. But, would we be worthy? You have to understand. It was like someone took what was wrong with all of our ex-vaporizers and made it right by making the one perfect Pax.
Pax by Ploom Features
The feature list very promising… Here are some of the highlights.
- Brushed Aluminium Construction… Apple anyone?
- Motion Sensing Shut-off… Seriously?!
- Three Temperature Settings… As a portable, so far only the Arizer Solo has this.
- Charger Dock Station… Rechargeable, nice!
- 10 Year Warranty… Again, seriously?!
Is Pax Vaporizer Perfect?
I’m really amazed how Ploom combined LED and smartphone tech into Pax. It’s roughly the size of the average cigarette lighter, and uses intuitive smart technology that is so simple, it’s ridiculously amazing.
For such a small vape, Pax packs a punch with a surprisingly deep filling chamber.
The charging time for the battery is 1 hour. With continued use the battery will last up to 2 hours.
I’d like to shake the hand of the person who came up with the idea for the mouthpiece/power button design. Push down on the mouthpiece/power button to turn on (mouthpiece pops out to vape) and push down again to turn off (hides and protects mouthpiece.)
Now, that’s just some ninja shit right there. Bad-ass ninja shit. I think a ninja thought that one up.
I don’t know for sure if ninjas work at Ploom, but I do know that Pax could be, as of the time of this article release, the best ever portable vaporizer out there ever made.
Ploom has released Pax in August 2012. The price of the unit is $249 and is comparable to other portable vapes we have reviewed here on VaporizerBlog.com. It is backed by a 10 year warranty which is unheard of with any vape out there. You’ll have to get Pax vaporizer through an authorized re-seller like Vape World to be eligible for the 10 year warranty though.
But let the VapeBusters keep you posted now that we got our Pax at VapeBusters HQ and are able to give it a slowsong mixtape.
