7 Alternatives to the Pax 3

A couple of years ago, if you wanted a pocketable weed vape capable of getting you stoned on the ski slopes – the Pax was really your only option.

But it’s 2018 now, and there are several palm-sized dry herb vaporizers. Some are cheaper. Some are nicer. Most have better vapor.

Here are 7 ultra-portable weed vapes, aka dry herb vaporizers, that are better options than the Pax 3.

Davinci IQ

This is my favorite ultraportable weed vape. The shape is sexy and sleek. The lights and interface are hip, modern, and easy. The vapor is fantastic while being 100% conduction. Bonus points for the removable 18650 battery. At $279, it’s more expensive than the Pax 3 – and rightly so.

Healthy Rips Fury 2

The Fury 2 is $150! That’s $50 cheaper than the Pax 3. The Fury 2 has hybrid heating, so the vapor is more fulfilling while being less robust and harsh than the Pax 3. The Fury 2 has full temp control and a sweet little display. It includes a water pipe adapter and it SPANKS the Pax 3 on the bong and off.

Arizer Go

Another luxury unit at $270. The Argo is the cutest of the bunch, while also having the best overall vapor purity and vapor quality. The glass stem makes carrying a 2nd packed bowl super convenient. This device is a pleasure to use and carry. Available at Puffitup as well as Argo PotV

Xvape Starry

The Starry is very similar in size and shape to the Pax 3. It has a magnetic top cap and small conduction oven. The vapor is better than the Pax 3 vapor, although it is similar. The Starry has a full digital display with temp control and a removable 18650 battery. $120 with a free grinder is a screaming hot deal.

Xvape Fog

This is the big brother to the previous vape. The Fog utilizes hybrid heating to vastly improve the vapor quality and flavor. The Fog has 5 heat ranges instead of exact temp control, but for $160 you’re still getting BETTER vapor than the Pax 3 AND a removable 18650 battery.

Vapcap M

The Vapcap M is a unique vape. It’s without battery, powered by the flames and heat of a butane torch. The M is a great on-demand personal vape. It’s not for everyone, but if you are NOT immediately turned off by carrying a small butane torch lighter and love the ability to get high as shit in less than 3 minutes – go pick up the Vapcap M. It will be the $50 you’ve spent on a weed vape today.

Boundless CFC

I’m going to be straight with you here. The CFC is a great value at $90. The vapor from the CFC may compare or even compete with the Pax. It’s small and sleek with a strong battery. The interface is simple and straightforward. However, if you plan to use this vape more than twice per week, consider investing another $30 for the Starry. This is a weekender’s weed vape.
