The Pax by Ploom was one of the most popular vaporizers in the U.S. for a multitude of reasons. Its sleek design, high functionality and intelligent construction made for an undeniable consumer product — a feat requiring the kind of style and vision usually attributed to Steve Jobs and few others.
“If I didn’t know better, I wouldn’t have even guessed it was pot paraphernalia,” our review of the original Pax read in January 2014.
Now lands the Pax 2, which debuts in stores on March 10. Gone is the Ploom — and some of the unnecessary materials, too. The Pax 2 is smaller than the original by 25 percent (measuring 3.87″ x 1.21″ x .85″) and lighter by 10 percent. Its battery life is also 30 percent longer, it has four temperature settings (instead of three) and it has a new feature its makers call “an intelligent, motion- and lip-sensing technology.”
