"There is plenty to love about the Pax by Ploom and very little to dislike. This is one of the best portable vaporizers on the market, and the hype seems to be entirely founded."

  • Original Score: 4.20 / 5

"It feels that Ploom focused more on design than they did function. The draw is difficult, but with patience it can be manageable. The uneven baking can be mitigated by stirring, but that also requires you to repack the oven. The taste at the end of the loaf is noticably poor, I think using less plastic internally might help. I use the Pax, but only when situation demands"

"A compact, portable alternative to smoking that fits in your pocket. Attractive, easy-to-use design."

Paint The Moon

"Save yourself the frustration of comparing portable vaporizers and pick up the Pax. This thing is a MUST BUY. I found it very convenient and easy to use and it went from nowhere to ready to smoke in under a minute flat. Not to mention this thing looks super cool and it’s so discreet that no one will even be able to tell what it is."

"The Pax is one of the most discreet/portable vaporizers currently on the market. It's extremely lightweight and easy to carry around. You can palm this unit for maximum discreetness and everything is attached so there are no extra pieces to carry around. It does require a little more cleaning than other portables but overall it's worth if you need to be a sneaky vaporist."

"PAX is by far one of the best vaporizers out there today, and despite being a few years old, it still performs better than newer models. Though the tight draw may be an issue, one can easily get used to it."

  • Original Score: 4.62 / 5

"I like the Pax because it is pocket-sized, idiot-proof, light-weight, and fast. It does not require special puffing techniques to get a good vape cloud and I never experienced charring or combustion. The Emerald Green Pax is my personal EDC (Every Day Carry). That's how much I like it."

Know Techie

"I would absolutely recommend The Pax to anyone looking to get their hands on a portable vaporizer. The Pax is getting so popular that it’s caught attention on the black market. Counterfeiters are manufacturing knockoffs and selling them as the real deal, royally screwing over anyone who buys one. "
