    From your experience, what produces more vapour, the Crafty or the PAX 2? I'm 100% sure my Crafty was producing more thicker and visible vapours when it was working correctly. As of now, the PAX 2 is producing bigger and denser clouds than my Crafty (My Crafty seems to be defective and is not producing the same amount of vapour as before).

    I'm amazed you guys get any substantial vapor at one petal heat level. A packed oven gives me very thin (yet flavorful) wisps. I test with a mouth pull (like puffing on a cigar) just to see what the variance in vapor density can be based on speed of pull and there's certainly vapor production, but actually hitting the unit and exhaling results in super faint vapor.

    Does anyone know of a slim, easy to clean cap for the Pax 2 that fits snugly, made from a non-pourus, non-smelly material? I would slip it onto the flat mouthpiece end, and perhaps the oven end as well, to eliminate smell. It seems like most of the smell comes from the mouthpiece end. Only having to slip off one cap at the MP end would be easy and intuitive, though a cap at each end would be better where super smell-stealth is desired. I remember seeing one for the Pax 1 somewhere, but it was a bit bulky.

    Does anyone know of any caps, and where do you think most smell comes from when not in use?

    My impressions so far are that a fresh load smells considerably from the mouth piece while a load that has been hit a few times is odiferous from both ends. I set my unit to charge after 3 PR 4 pulls on 2 petals and kept catching whiffs from it, 3-4 feet away.

    Clean your s and b portable. The cu and the bottom screen. Then see how it works. Use dry fine ground if possible and vape 185 or more.

    Man I wish I had a 3d printer. There's so many great ideas for the Pax and beyond that would be so easy to make! The caps sound genius.

    having great success on the 2ndpetal and yes even big clouds on only just 1petal the lowest heat. but there is definately some tequnique to it because i had to buy a good sharp stone grinder and it does a fine grind and then also firmly pack it in nice and firm and i just wait about 5seconds after it turns green and is ready and the 2nd petal is giving such nice big clouds and i even tried about 4 different variety types of materials on 2nd petal but i do have a dryer herbs that when grinded finely was getting very huge dense + tastey clouds on the lowest heat 1 pedals :)

    Probably something different from you, and he probably doesn't hit it the way you do either. I don't like comparing draw counts because I know that I get substantially different counts depending on those two factors. Clearly you'll get fewer 20 second hits per oven than 10 second hits. ;)

    I feel the Crafty produces thicker clouds than the Pax2.

    Pak, you are right; I should have said, "my oven-residue issue"! :wave:

    The residue issue was a problem for me too. The smell has been an issue since day 1. Do you notice the unit smells a lot more than the Pax 1?

    I think conductive vaporizing in general put's off more smell, And this one seem's to get better vapor than the first, So you get more smell from herb's being more fully extracted.

    I will agree that I am getting more residue under the screen/a quicker build up and pull resistance than from the pax 1. I clean every other day or about every 8 loads as I did with my pax 1

    No this is not my first vaporizer; in fact I have have had a volcano, purple days, woodeez and a magic flight box. And all of those have worked just great for me, no problems at all! Yeh this "Thing" just isn't cutting it for me! Even this guy thinks the pax 2 sucks. And I'll let him explain that to you why....

    You can express your opinion but only in a positive way....

    This unit is NOT crap = OK
    This unit is pure crap = not OK :hmm:

    Nothing to do with the text of your post, but in your video you stated that one's social security number is required to register the device. I don't know about anyone else, but I registered online and there was no field for SSN in the process. I'm registered and have not given my SSN.

    The review seemed somewhat lame. The oven is smaller but deeper. I also have short nails and need a tool to remove mouthpiece (no bigee). He sort of hinted an issue with charging port but this was undeveloped and the quality of the vapor was left not commented on. Also no sin# in registration.I would say poor attempt

    I think what you're getting at here is correct. While I still think that the screen with feet will help alleviate this problem (if someone has one, chime in!), I also think if I clean it a bit sooner I won't have that problem.

    I realize that the bit of resin was holding my screen, but when compounded with the re-placement of the draw tube closer to the oven wall, this is what made mine stick. I just didn't have a way to push it out.

    I think I'd like to clean it a few more times to see if it was a one time problem. I was vaping some sticky substances and have switched this week over to one that is slightly less sticky.

    A clean Pax is a happy Pax, folks. 'Twas the case with the original and is so with #2, though as @pakalolo pointed out early in the thread, #2 is easier to clean and requires less-frequent cleaning than its predecessor.

    My P2 has the screen with feet. I've had zero draw issues, etc... I'd marry this vape if I could. Granted, I prefer a clean experience and therefore clean my vapes and equipment more than most other vaporists I know (clean the Pax after every 5 uses). But my original Pax still works like new after almost three years and no replacement parts, and I imagine #2 will hold up as well if not better. And the damn thing gets me fucking ripped. With less weed than the P1, to boot.

    A clean Pax is a happy Pax.

    Cheers!

    Yea I guess alot of people forget that these are vaporizers not blunts the faster u pull the wiser and lighter your vapor if u even get any at all and the slower u pull the more dense and thicker the cloud gets
