The Pax 2 was typically touted as the “Best Portable Vaporizer” and the “King of Weed Vapes” by mainstream media in their Pax reviews. The Pax 2 is certainly a great vape, and its immense popularity helped spread awareness about cannabis vaporizers.
The Pax 3 and the Pax 2 are essentially the same vaporizers. But the Pax 3 has *smart* features to improve battery life and adjust vape temps.
The Pax 2 is on my list of Best Budget Vapes and is more popular than the Pax 3. Pax Labs has reduced the warranty of the Pax 2 from 10 years to 2.
Pax 3 vs Pax 2: Pax 3 Exclusive Features
- faster heating – The Pax 3 heats up in about 15 seconds, compared to 45 seconds for the Pax 2.
- haptic feedback – so soft and nice. perfect.
- temperature customization, via a Bluetooth connected mobile app
- bigger battery (3500mAh on Pax 3 vs 3000mAh on Pax 2)
- idle cooldown, to save your herb
- concentrate oven (in full bundle)
- half pack oven (available to purchase as an accessory for Pax 2 owners)
Is it worth upgrading from Pax 2 to Pax 3? If you already have the Pax 2, it’s not worth upgrading unless you absolutely need the haptic feedback and precise temperature control. It would be a dick move for Pax to choose not to sell the concentrate oven separately.
If you think the faster heating, smart features, and concentrate oven might be worth it, check out my in-depth Pax 3 review before making your decision.
