Quick Guide to using your Pax 2

Hey! You’re probably on this page because you made the great decision to purchase a Pax 2; a great looking smart vaporizer.

We wanted to ensure that you have the best possible experience so we created this brief guide on how to to get the most out of your Pax 2,

You will have the following pieces included in the box:

  • Pax 2 device
  • Raised mouthpiece
  • Magnetic oven lid
  • Magnetic Charger
  • 10x Cleaning tools

Charging your Pax 2

The Pax 2 has a unique magnetic charging dock – it snaps right into place as soon as you place the charger near the port on the back of the device.#

You’ll know when your pax has reached a full charge when all four LEDs are light – it should take roughly two hours.

Perform a quick burnoff of the Pax 2’s oven.

Once the battery is fully charged, it is worth performing a quick ‘burn-off’ of the Pax’s oven. Occasionally residue from the manufacturing process can be left in your vaporizer’s oven. This can affect the taste of your first session.

To carry this out, power on the Pax by pressing the power button in the centre of the mouthpiece once.

Leave the Pax 2 oven on for five minutes. Repeat this process once more to complete the burn off process.

Packing your Pax 2

Now our Pax 2 is charged and the burn off is complete, we’re ready to get started!

Remove the magnetic oven cover at the bottom of the Pax. Before placing any herb in the oven, first, ensure you have ground your herbs as finely as possible.

The Pax performs best when your herbs are packed firmly and the oven is at least half full.

Choose your mouthpiece

The Pax 2 can be used with either the flat mouthpiece that is fitted into the device or this can be swapped out for the raised mouthpiece.

The flat mouthpiece is great because it is really discreet however, some prefer the natural feel of the raised mouthpiece.

Powering on your Pax 2

To turn the Pax 2 on, press the power button in the centre of the mouthpiece once – the vaporizer should immediately begin to heat up.

Whilst heating up the LEDs will pulsate with a soft purple colour and turn green when it has reached the set temperature.

Changing the temperature settings of your Pax 2

The Pax 2 has four temperature setting. To adjust the temperature you have to put your Pax into temperature mode.

To do this, when the Pax 2 in turn on, hold the power button until the LEDs turn yellow.

Now you can cycle through the four settings by pressing the power button once. Each LED corresponds to a temperature setting with 1 LED being the coolest temperature and 4 being the hottest.

To set your chosen temperature, hold the power button for an extended period again until the LEDs turn from yellow to purple or green.

PAX 2 Quickstart Guide

The PAX 2 is as easy to use as it is stylish, but our short quickstart guide will help you.

Everyone loves a sequel, and the PAX 2 in particular brought a number of important quality of life improvements to an already successful vape. Whether you’re just joining the PAX family, or upgrading from the old model, our quickstart guide will take you from unboxing, all the way through your first session, with a few tips along the way.

What’s in the box

  • PAX 2 Vaporizer
  • Charging Dock
  • USB Cable
  • Cleaning Kit
  • Two Mouthpieces

Charge before use

To charge your PAX 2, plug the cradle into any USB charging port, then set the PAX 2 on top, contacts down, and LED petals up. The magnets will guide it into the correct charging position. The number of lit petals indicates the current charge level. When they’re all lit, the battery is charged, and you’re ready to go. PAX claims this will take about three hours the first time around, but it will take less time on subsequent charges.

One button controls

In addition to displaying the battery charge, the petals also indicate the PAX 2’s current temperature status and setting. Press the button on top of the mouthpiece to turn it on. The lights will turn purple and flow upwards as the PAX 2 heats up, and turn green when it reaches your target temperature. To change the temperature, hold down the button for one second, press it to cycle through the different heat options, and shake to finalize your selection. The PAX 2 has four temperature setting to choose from:

One yellow petal – 360ºF (182ºC)
Two light orange petals – 380°F (193°C)
Three orange petals – 400°F (204°C)
Four red petals – 420ºF (216ºC)

Burnoff cycle

Before using the PAX 2 for the first time, we recommend running a burnoff cycle to make sure there’s nothing left in the vaporizer from manufacturing or shipping. With nothing in the oven, turn the PAX 2 on, and up to its highest heat setting (4 red petals). The PAX 2 automatically lowers its heat when it isn’t being used, so move it around occasionally to keep it active. If you set it down for around 30 seconds, the petals will turn blue and the oven will start to cool off. Picking it up, or touching the mouthpiece with your lip or finger, will cause it to heat back up quickly. Do this for 3-5 minutes, or until you don’t smell anything coming off the vape.

Very fine grind

The PAX 2 works best with a very fine grind, and we find the best way to achieve that is with a two-piece grinder. If you’d rather use your four-piece grinder, you can turn the top two tiers upside down to give your herbs more time between the teeth.

Packed extra tight

When you’re loading the oven, which is just the lower, bare metal portion, you really can’t pack it too tightly. You can use the edge of the oven lid to push it down and create a nice tight pack. If you don’t want to use enough to fill the oven, the half-pack lid can take up the extra space and keep everything from moving around.

Three to start, four to finish

For your first session, we recommend starting out on the third heat setting, or three red petals. That should produce a decent amount of visible vapor. As the session starts to thin out, you can raise it to the fourth heat setting to finish it off.

Short, light puffs

Once the lights turn green, you can start taking some puffs on the PAX 2. If you’re using the flat mouthpiece, place your lips around the edge of the vape, over the hole in the mouthpiece. Start with some short, light draws, like sipping on a cup of hot tea.

No stirring

As long as you space out your hits and stick with the slow, sipping draw speed, you shouldn’t have to stir the PAX 2. If you notice your herbs aren’t coming out as dark as you’d like at the end of a session, leave it running at the hottest setting for fuller extraction.You may find that the herbs on top of the oven have a lighter color than the rest of the oven. This is normal.

Clean up right away

We’ll have a cleaning and maintenance guide up soon, but if you want to save yourself some time, make sure to dump out the oven right after each session, to prevent any buildup. The oven lid in particular tends to gather a lot of debris, and benefits from frequent cleaning. It’s normal for the oven’s color to change after the first few uses, and it won’t go back to that original look, even with cleaning.
