I recommend you pick up a grinder that will give you really fine herbs. Using the MFLB finishing grinder has given me the best results as far as vapor quality and length of my session. The finer herbs allow the Pax to heat the entire chamber more efficiently.
If you’re ready to move on to something new… I recommend you check out the my top picks for best portable vaporizers. I always keep it up to date to reflect any new portable vaporizers on the market or changes with old models. Thanks for watching/reading and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below. Today we’re going to be going over how to clean your pax portable vaporizer. Now, some of the things you’re going to need is the pax mouthpiece lubricant. You can find more information about this on my website vaporizerwizard.com. The next thing you’re going to need is an interdental brush. You can pick it up in a pack like this available at your local grocery store or drug store.
I also have a couple q-tips, I have a pipe cleaner. And also a straw that you can get off a DW40 can or compressed air can, I’ll show you what we’re going to be doing with this later. You’re going to need 91% isopropyl alcohol, and then a jar to keep the alcohol in. Ok so there’s pretty much two pieces to the pax that we’re going to need to clean. First of all its going to be the oven, and the mouthpiece. So in order to the mouthpiece, we’re going to turn the unit on, pop it off, find the groove back here, it just comes off like that. I’m going to go ahead and grab our interdential brush. Dip it in a little bit of alcohol, not too much, and dab it off. And then what we’re going to do here is clean around the outside of this chamber. So it’s too small for a q-tip, and its just right for this. So what we’re going to do is just go around on the edge here. The next thing we’re going to clean is the mouthpiece. Now if you can see here on the right hand side, that’s where the vapor travels and that’s what we’re going to try and clean here. Now the next thing we can do is get in here and clean this piece. Also on the top, you’ll notice this piece moves right here. So get on both sides of that and then also along the top here. Ok so the next thing you’re going to do is grab the pipe cleaner and the mouthpiece and we’re going to clean the inside of this tube where the vapor travels up. So you’re going to dip it in a little bit of alcohol, you don’t want it soaking wet, so dab it off. That should be pretty good, you can also use it to get the outside of this as well. Then you can also pick up a qtip, little bit of alcohol and clean the top part of the mouthpiece. Now you can use a paper towel for this but I already have the qtip so we’ll just go ahead and knock it out. Ok, then we’re going to go ahead and pick up our pipe cleaner again. This part we’re going to have to remove the lid on the oven and then also remove this metal plate that is on the inside.
Now normally how you would do that, is you would take this pipe cleaner that comes with the pax cleaning kit and run it all the way down this chamber. This is how the vapor travels from the oven to the mouthpiece. And then slide it down and it should knock it out for us.
So this is what comes out, this little metal piece here. Probably need a little bit more alcohol on here and higher up too that way you can get more alcohol all the way down the tube. Still dab it off though because you don’t want to get an excess of alcohol inside this.
