Pax Vaporizer by Ploom Vaporizers are devices used to turn different substances, such as medicine, into vapor for instant inhalation. Conventional vaporizers use three different forms of heating to transform substances into vapor--convection heating, thermal conduction and thermal radiation. Vaporizers are generally manufactured in medium sizes; portable models, like the Pax Vaporizer by Ploom, have recently become prevalent in today's vaporizer market.
Ploom's Pax Vaporizer is a conduction-styled vaporizer that's small enough to carry around in your hand or pocket. Conduction style vaporizers heat liquid or solid substances through a metal plate, facilitating the release of ready to inhale constituents. Conduction style vaporizers are a commonly manufactured vaporizer type--of course, the Pax Vaporizer is one of the more popular vaporizers available for purchase.
Like most conduction style vaporizers, the Pax Vaporizer heats up substances through conduction heating. Substances can be heated in around 30 seconds; the temperature adjusts to three different settings: a low setting, a medium setting and a high setting. Pax's low setting reaches at least 370 degrees Fahrenheit (188 degrees Celsius). The medium setting can reach a temperature of 390 degrees Fahrenheit (199 Celsius), while the high setting reaches 410 degrees Fahrenheit (210 degrees Celsius). The button of the device can adjust the temperature setting to its user's liking; also on the device is an indicator light that displays the condition of the battery, heating status and the temperature itself. The temperature display light appears as yellow, orange or red lights for low, medium and high temperatures, respectively.
And speaking of battery life--Pax Vaporizer's Lithium-ion battery lasts up to two hours of ongoing usage. It can be charged under an hour with the included plug-in charging stand. The Pax Vaporizer battery lasts about a week when used regularly.
The Pax Vaporizer's exterior is constructed from anodized aluminum, giving it a very streamlined appearance. The vaporizer comes in Onyx, Amethyst and Cobalt colors--black, purple and blue. The vapor pathway inside is made from medical grade stainless steel, along with the oven-like heating unit snugly fit at the bottom of the vaporizer.
Ploom's Pax Vaporizer features a motion sensing shut off system, durable portable construction and a 10 year warranty offered by its manufacturer, Ploom. Pax Vaporizer by Ploom retails for $249 at the Ploom approved distributor, VapeWorld.

It charges up in about 30 seconds and is the most pleasurable of the portable vapes we have used. The USB charger is also handy. It is very easy to use and maintain.
