When you say the battery last for the day, how often do you vape?I figure these can be combined since the 2 & 3 are so similar and the OG is discontinued but some may still want to discuss somewhere.

Here was my original review on Pax 3 posted 5/17/18 hope it is helpful for some and added a few updates:
Quick backstory: the Pax OG was one of my first vapes and I HATED it. The flavor, the maintenance, the efficiency and the price all left a bad taste. But I did try the Pax 2 and was impressed with how much better it was than the first and when they had the 4/20 deal, the price made it irresistible (damned VAS, leave me be!)
I have to say... I love this thing!
I have a few Conduction vapes, but none of them have been dd’s for a long time.
I think it was @Mr. Me2 who said everyone should have at least one conduction and one convection vape in their rotation- and I couldn’t agree more!
The vapor is much heavier and concentrated with the Pax. For me, the vape signature really packs a punch!
I’ve always loved the form factor, I don’t think there is another battery vape that is smaller, certainly not one that performs as well.
The maintenance is much, much easier than the OG. It still needs more maintenance than most of my other vapes because the flavor degrades after 3-5 loads, but a little ISO and a pipe cleaner and it is as good as new.
I really like the App. The different profiles are very fun to use. I especially like the Flavor profile and the Efficiency profile. The latter reminds me of the Alfa Gaboof auto puff setting (I can’t remember exact name). The app does have a few quirks/issues but I will save that for a different post.
(edit 5/19/20 - I rarely use app as it is so easy to change temps without it, just click and shake! But the profiles are fun to use when you are in the mood)
The battery life is more than sufficient for my needs. It lasts longer than my Crafty (which isn’t saying much) and probably similar to Fury 2. I wish it would charge directly to a USB instead of having to use the adapter (one more thing for me to lose) but not a huge deal. At least it’s small, so if I am traveling, it doesn’t add any significant weight.
The only thing I don’t love is how much herb you need to pack in there to have a great session. Even the half pack is more like a 3/4 full oven, which when packed down is a lot of herb. I bought the New Vape pusher, but honestly, even when it is unscrewed as far as possible, it seems to be the same amount as half pack. (I was hoping to be able to pack a 1/4 or 1/8 of oven at a time and that doesn’t work with pusher.)
(Edit 5/19/20: I don’t worry about efficiency as much since I got different pusher that wasn’t built into the lid: Pax Pusher - Choose your PAX)
I need to try out others suggestions of bent screen (any chance you can post a pic of that? I am not understanding exactly how it would work), and using the concentrate lid. Will report back when I get there.
I have zero regrets buying the Pax 3. This has quickly moved into my daily rotation - super happy with its performance.
(edit 5/19/20: still use this in my regular rotation. One thing I didn’t mention initially was how smelly this vape is - you will definitely need a case or cap covers to keep it more stealthy)
I’m not sure I ever said it would last all day (did I?), because I don’t use it for more than a few sessions in same day in most scenarios. I think it has a great battery life for such a small vape, but I doubt it will last a full day of constant sessions.When you say the battery last for the day, how often do you vape?
For me, I vape all day. Typically I have a fresh battery in my Starry, and a pair of spares. I've never run out of battery.

Thanks for the info!Hey @Mr. Me2 . . . . half pack lid ftw right here - it works a treat in my experience. I used screens folded into a taco for quite a while, but the lid is much easier, more convenient & consistent, plus, it doesn't get lost so easily - although, other people's milage may vary, particularly on that last point!
Just to be sure, you’re talking about the pax pusher now sold by Cannabis Hardware?@Mr. Me2 I never liked the vented lid pusher - you still need a lot of weed to fill it to get a good experience.
With the stand alone pusher, I can go as low as around .050g and still have a great few sessions.
YMMV but I highly recommend going with the one NOT attached to lid.
@VegNVape - that is the one I initially got, and as mentioned above, i didn’t like it. the results were the same as the half pack, and for me, that still needs way more weed that I want to put in for a single person session.
But, if you already are happy with the half pack and just want to have less plastic in your air path, that is a good option.
