PLOOM PAX - $249
Design: First off, the battery life is fantastic and automatically goes into sleep mode if not in use for more than a minute or so. Even at high settings the device never gets too hot to pass. If inconspicuous is your name, Pax is your game. 9
Portability: For portability, Pax works in almost any setting. Sleek and easy to use, Pax could fit easily into pockets of jeans or a blazer without any notice. 9
Strength: The Pax packed the least amount of punch even when the heating unit was set to high. Using dense, medical grade samples, it required full strength to provide a decent vape. The chamber fits a solid amount of herbs and is perfect for taking out on the town. 8
Conclusion: It’s understandable that Pax has been referred to as the iPod of vaporizers as the packaging and ease of use lend itself to such comparisons. Don’t be surprised if your hipster friends already own this.
Overall Score: 8.6
