If you do a search for the “best dry herb vaporizer” online, there’s a big chance that you’ll see the PAX 3. At first glance, its ultra minimalistic design may leave you wondering “is this thing really a vape?”. But once you try it out, you’ll just get to appreciate its simple yet sleek design even more.  

Before we get into the stuff that makes the PAX 3 really impressive, let’s take a look at its vital statistics.

PAX 3 Specs

  • Year introduced: 2016
  • Size: 1.2” x 0.8” x 3.5” in
  • Weight: 3.3 oz
  • Battery capacity and usage: 3500 mAh, 8 to 10 sessions.
  • Heating technology: Conduction
  • Temperature range: 182 up to 215 degrees Celsius (360 to 420 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Price: $199.99 (complete kit is $249.99 )

The good: There are a number of reasons why the PAX 3 is still one of the best-selling dry herb vapes even though it is already 6 years old. It’s a high-tech vape that can be precisely controlled via a smartphone app but is fully functional on its own. It has a sleek, discreet design that makes it barely look like a weed vape and its aluminum shell can take a beating. Battery life is good for a vape in its class which can last up to 8 to 10 sessions. Heat up time takes only around 15 seconds. Boasts a 10-year manufacturer warranty. 

The bad: Even though the PAX 3 can handle drops like a champ, scratches easily become obvious on its brushed aluminum finish. It also does not smell that well despite its discreet appearance. It’s also not the most efficient in using up weed as it needs around 0.15 to 0.2 grams to work well. 

At $200, the PAX 3 is definitely not a working man’s weed vape. It is clearly intended for those who want a nice-looking, well-rounded, high-tech vape that scores above average on most features and then some. Even though it does have a bit of draw resistance, a little short on vapor and flavor, the PAX 3 still delivers in spades and meets all expectations, especially considering that it can use both dry herb and concentrates.

PAX 3 Parts and Accessories

The PAX 3 is available in the Basic or Complete Kit packages. In the first package, which costs $200, you get a charger, flat & raised mouthpiece, standard oven lid, and cleaning kit. In the Complete Package which is priced at $250, you also get a half-pack oven lid, concentrate insert, extra screens, a multi-tool, and a carrying pouch. Of all these accessories, only the oven lids make a huge difference in the functionality of the PAX 3, everything else seems extra. Then again, if you can shell out $200 for a vape, adding $50 for original accessories would hardly be an issue. Here are some of the original PAX 3 accessories that you can buy separately:

  • Screen pack (3 pack) – $9.99. This metal screen is used as a layer of protection for the PAX 3’s oven. PAX 3 screens have a longer lifespan than typical metal mesh screens since they can last a month or so with proper cleaning.
  • Water Pipe Adapter – $18. You can use this with 14mm and 18mm female water pipes or bubblers.
  • Loading funnel – $5.20. Used for loading weed into the chamber.
  • Revelry case – $25. A matching soft pouch for the PAX 3 if the one provided in the kit is not your type.
  • Odor caps – $2.75. These vinyl caps help prevent odors from leaking out of your PAX 3
  • Multi-tool – $9.99. Used for loading and unloading the chamber.
  • Half pack oven lid – $12.99. Use this lid if you only want to pack the chamber at half the capacity.
  • Maintenance kit – $14.99. Includes 3 replacement oven screens, 10 pipe cleaners, and a wire cleaning brush.

The PAX 3 may not look like a moddable kind of vape, but you may be surprised that it does have a bunch of other accessories on Amazon made by third party manufacturers. Here are some of the more notable ones:

Conclusion

While the PAX 3 isn’t exactly cheap, it is probably the best hybrid dry herb vape in its class that will give you your money’s worth. It looks premium, high-tech, easy to use, and durable. While it’s not the best in one particular category, it performs well above average in every department. This and the 10-year manufacturer warranty makes the PAX 3 a top choice for many even though it’s already a 6 year old vape. In terms of accessories, the original ones are expectedly just as premium but if you’re on a budget, you may find third-party ones more suitable to your needs.
