    I'm becoming more and more convinced that vaporizers thrive only with high-quality herbs. Certainly methods make a big difference in terms of quality of hits, but I have seen first-hand how lesser quality herbs give dramatically different results in the same vape with the same methods. So much of any vaporizer's effectiveness lies not only in the vaporizer and methods but in the trichs of the herb.

    Blaster, I don't know what quality herbs you are using, but I can attest that the Pax can get me ripped on low and still have plenty green to draw on through medium, and I am not a light-weight by any means. I rarely even use high anymore at all unless I am vaping with others, in which case the higher temps are necessary since the warm-up time is less. The Pax has the ability to produce big clouds even on low, though -- I do it all the time -- and it certainly has the ability to stone you as well as any other quality vape. I do use only highs, though.

    Does the oven need to be filled, maybe i'm not putting enough in, this is good herb but it's not producing the amount of clouds that I've seen on even high.

    Fill it full and then pack it down flat with your finger or end of a pen. Depending on how fluffy your stuff is you should have a pretty thin layer on the bottom, some people go with this load but I prefer to repeat at least once more. I like the oven is about half full when packed solid.

    Whatever bowl size you like, the secret is to pack it down flat.

    I packed it pretty fully this time and i was getting good hits, they were making me cough. It was embarrassing to use this with a friend before realizing i have to pack the hits full. I'll try what you said Joe by packing it half way and pushing it down, i haven't been pushing it down only pouring it in. My stuff is grinded to pretty much powder though so there's no real way to pack it.
    Seems like I have to pack it full for it to work properly.

    Haven't had much success on the low temp myself. I usually leave it on medium until i finish off the remains on high.

    Good morning to all. So I get to work and Pax is jamming out while in sleep mode. I think I will proceed to hit the Pax and wake it up now. No My Pax isnt blue, its purple :)



    Trippy Mane!

    My Pax has been out for repairs for so long, that I have fallen in love with other units :ugh:

    I cant seem to fix the temp light problem but Ploom says the new cleaning kit will solve the issue. (lubricant)
    Other then that I'm way satisfied, based on the video I just posted I would say in love with Pax :love:.
    I've burned it down less then 5 times in the past 4 months. Pretty good considering I burned back to back blunts before this. I'm now looking at the Cloud as a home unit, because of the cool glass piece which would hopefully cool the hits down, and it looks easy to clean. I was looking for a balloon vape like the volcano because I love the accessibility of a bag of vape to put down and pick up whenever I want to hit it but now I dont want the volcano and no other bag vape looks promising. (I missed the vivape2 sale so im not going with that)

    one other bag/regular vape to consider is the Herbalair (HA 2.2) as another alternative, it's a work horse, and hard to break, and you can do bags or run it through glass or use a tube/hose. Very versatile, and low cost for the entire set up. Something to consider before you invest, also you can buy the hydratube (cloud glass) separately... :2c:

    I am definitely still in love with my Pax, gets used daily. :brow:

    Thank you for the suggestion as I'm in uncharted territories and am getting my feet wet slowly but surely. :) /checks it out

    Edit: Looks good, I see it has some clamp to put on the edge of the bag to hold it in, ghetto but definitely better then paying 600+ for the volcano. I think this might just be the at home unit Ima dive into. That and I see it got updated parts. Thanks.

    Look at the kind of comments there are, mostly health food types, "all man made chemicals are likely toxic" I'll give them alcohol but what about medicines that are proven to save lives?

    I don't really want to use the lube because it sounds messy, but I'm sure it's safe to use on the pax mechanism if people eat and inhale it without any observable side effects...

    Just a question guys, is it normal after like 5 minutes of using it after a charge it goes to yellow? just got the pax two days ago. How long should it last,i find when it's on red it doesn't produce as much vapour..

    Fill her up, put it on low, start there. Will taste good. Make sure screen is lifted bit by the air tube hole. Let it warm up. I hold finger over mp to not let vapor escape. Start slow hold in for as long as you can. No vapor output on exhale, three of these will make it a merry moment. To get clouds you toke slow. It not wasting any when done right 3ovens and recharge. My session time is 30 mins. I have also half filled and topped up rest with abv, new below abv on top. Tasted ok too. Then when you cannot repeat ie, abv will fill oven then you switch to high and roast the abv from low setting... Medium i not use much. Just finished a pax load, it's all abv high temp now, not even volcano can rip any more out. For tobacco don't chase clouds it work nice too. If you never chase clouds, hold in till you cannot, finger over mouth piece it not smelly it gets very stealthy. I've always travelled with my vape overseas, have also been naughty some time and brought meds.... Don't do folks silly no more for me too. Got kids now. Clean your vape, then blast tobacco trough pax lots before flight, during... Etc... Then it's fine, smell only tobacco. Happy flying, paxing, keep her clean she rips.

    Been going through this thread for quite a while now, decided to go through and order myself one of these little amazing devices, I don't mind cleaning every other day if that's the case because I am a pretty heavy smoker. Cheers to all of you for all your help this thread is filled with more than enough info on it.:tup:

    Ive been going nuts on the accessory purchases lately. I love stickers though. :p

    This time I justified it by thinking when I lose my oven lid I will be upset, so instead Im planning for the future so I wont be.

    I wonder how long it will take Ploom to realize that they could be making a bunch more money off of us if they developed optional mouthpieces, like a glass mouthpiece or a mouthpiece with a moisturizer on it or an extended mouthpiece or a mouthpiece with a GonG adapter. Man, the possibilities are endless. Surely, they have considered this at least.

    the more people request it, the more they will realize... I've asked them about it already and was told no mods were expected in the near future. It seems it would be very profitable and simple to design a mp that has a gong extension built on. Too bad i don't have the means to do it myself, could be cleaning up on accessories.

    I'll never forget one time I was in your exact position, and the dude never showed up! And then it updated online to "Rescheduled for next day delivery." I guess the driver got hung up or something. It sucked gigantic donkey dicks. May that not happen to you.

    IT'S HERE!!!!!!!! FUCK YEAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!



    They sent a cleaning kit but no stickers.
    On another note, this thing far surpasses my expectations, I read every thread and watched every vid on the pax before I made my purchase. I weighed the good and the bad. Finally I made the plunge and I'm quite happy that I did. This is my opinion 2 hours into owning it so time will tell.
