Meet Pax By Ploom: The MacBook Of Vaporizers


If you’re a smoker, you know how bad the habit is for your health but your addiction won’t let you stop.

If you don’t want to quit but are perhaps looking for a more appropriate alternative, meet the Pax by Ploom.

The Pax is a pocket-sized vaporizer that heats to a set temperature but does not burn your tobacco. And man is this thing quick. After it’s loaded up it only takes 45 seconds to heat up and you’re puffing away.

Pax is a smart device too, it takes advantage of a motion sensor, which lowers the heat if you set the device down and forgot to turn it off.

The Pax is made from anodized aluminium, the same material as your MacBook Pro, it feels nice in your hand. Pax is small, convenient, and easy to use.

Price: $249

Pax is tiny. The device comes in a small square box.

The packaging is very minimal, the company only placed essential items in the box.

The aluminium feels great in your hand. It doesn't easily scratch and is very durable.

Pax fits in your hand easily.

To activate, simply press the mouth piece up. The light in the centre of Pax will glow orange as it heats up. Green means its ready.

Included is a user guide, cleaning kit, and charging dock.

Pax is easy to clean. The cleaning kit includes alcohol patches and pipe cleaners.

You pack your tobacco in the bottom of the device. It's impossible to over pack Pax.

Here is another shot of the device warming up.

Green means go. Overall we really like Pax and think that it is an excellent alternative to traditional cigarettes.
