Coming in at our 3rd spot for top vapes is the Pax Vaporizer by Ploom. It is actually undoubtedly the #1 portable vaporizer on the market.
As of recently, the Pax has gotten incredibly popular; you probably already know why… This is thanks to the vape being incredibly small and stealth like. It’s definitely different than any of the other home vaporizers like the Volcano or Extreme Q as it is portable – you can bring it anywhere you want.

The Dirty Info
- Mouthpiece is recessed – You click on the top of the mouthpiece and it rises for you. This means that the mouthpiece is literally inside the device. This is able to keep the Pax compact.
- 3 Temperature Settings – Orange (390), yellow (370), and red (410). We like the red. More vapor and a quicker smoke. We find that it doesn’t medicate as hard on the lower settings.
- Heat up time – Super quick – takes about 30 seconds.
- Battery life – About an hour and half on red temperature before you really have to charge it. If you wanna check if you need to charge it, all you do is shake it and it will indicate what its charging. It will take about 45 minutes to an hour. You can’t use it while charging.
- Price – $249.99
- Small – Probably the best quality about this vape. You can easily put it into your pocket without it filling up your pocket or looking goofy. It fits pretty comfortably in there.
- Discreet – Another great quality of the Pax is that it doesn’t really look like a smoking apparatus. So many people mistake it for some new gadget. It honestly looks like a futuristic lighter…or that thing that the dude from District 9 sprays in his face.
- Decent chamber for being a portable – Holds about .15-.25. This is pretty big in comparison to other portable vapes. It could be seen as a drawback though because when you compare it to other vapes, you can put more in, but often times you don’t even need it thanks to the efficiency of a vaporizer. You can expect about 10 draws from a packing.
- Incredibly easy to use – there are a lot of other vapes that are much more difficult to use. The Pax is pretty much a pack and go type deal. This makes it much easier to use over pretty much all the other vapes out there. You don’t have to setup anything.
- Durability – It’s durable for sure. We’ve dropped ours quite a few times.
- Design – Does the design get much better? It’s like Steve Jobs designed this sucker before he passed. Super sleek with dope LED lights. Gotta love it.
The Potentially Bad?
There’s a lot of things hard to find wrong with the Pax. It really is a great vape, which is why it’s our #1 portable and #3 best overall. We’ve come up with a couple things that we view as potentially bad. These things aren’t necessarily bad, but just in comparison to other vaporizers. With such a small vaporizer, there are going to be some limitations.
- Small herb chamber. I just said it was decent didn’t I? Well, in comparison to other vaporizers overall .25 isn’t much at all to pack. It may leave you constantly packing if you’re using it heavily with friends.
- Medicates well, but not THE BEST. Although it is the best portable vaporizer, when you compare it to traditional home vaporizers it doesn’t medicate you as much as something like the Volcano would.
Watch out for Fakes
