PAX Mini Vaporizer Review What's in the Box

Fully charge the PAX Mini before your first session

We always recommend you fully charge your vaporizer before you dive into your first session. The PAX Mini portable vaporizer will arrive with about half a charge, so grab the charge cradle, connect it to a power source, and place your PAX onto it face up. Give it a little wiggle or push if its lights don't turn on right away. All four LED petals will light up white when it’s fully charged and ready to go.

One button is all you need

The PAX Mini might be the easiest vaporizer to use with only a single button, located under the mouthpiece at the top, and a single heat setting to play with. It heats up to a low temperature and fluctuates based on your draw style.

Click it once to turn it on and it will immediately turn purple to let you know it’s heating up, and then turn green when it’s ready to hit. Set the PAX Mini down and after 30 seconds it’ll turn blue and start to cool down to save your herbs. Pick it back up and it will immediately start heating back up.

Clean your PAX Mini with a burnoff session

Let’s run a burnoff session to cleanse the oven and vapor path of any manufacturing or shipping residues. Turn your PAX Mini on and let it run through a full session at temperature. A few minutes should be fine but run it as much as you’d like if it has any lingering smells. Just pick the vape up and reengage the heater when it goes into standby mode.

Grind and pack

The PAX Mini vaporizer is a pretty versatile vape but works best with a medium to medium-fine grind and a tight pack. Take any grinder you have and tear up enough herbs to fill the oven. Place your herbs inside and give them a firm pack. It doesn’t need to be too tight. Just enough to condense it down into the oven.

Click and go with easy sips

It’s smooth sailing from here on out. Just give the button a press and wait till it turns green. The mouthpiece is located on the top of the PAX Mini and pulls vapor through the little slit on the edge of the mouthpiece. When you’re ready, place your lips over the slit and give it a slow, easy sip. Airflow is tight on this vape, so relax into it and take your time. Wait a bit in between hits for the thickest vapor. It’ll ramp up as you go deeper into your session.

Do I need to stir my PAX Mini?

Nope. Even though the PAX Mini stays at a relatively low heat setting, it’ll cook consistently through your herbs, with no stirring necessary. The top of the load may be a little lighter than the rest, but that’s perfectly normal and there’s not much there to go after.

Dump the herbs and clean the oven

When you’re done, dump the herbs out of the oven before it sets in and starts to stick. Get in the habit and do this after each session to keep your vape cleaner for longer.
