PAX Mini Review

PAX Mini 

In November of 2022, PAX Labs announced the launch of their two newest handheld vaporizers, PAX Plus and PAX Mini as their first major product release since the PAX Era and PAX 3 in 2016. Given the widespread success of the PAX 3, the brand decided to release these new vapes with simple but highly effective and up-to-date upgrades. The PAX Mini, specifically, is a straightforward and uncomplicated device with high-quality vapor that anyone from beginners to experienced vapers can enjoy. With a price that won’t break the bank, the PAX Mini is an excellent choice for those looking for a combination of simplicity, quality, and portability in their new vaporizer.  

Details and Design 

Using the PAX Mini requires little thought which is a huge factor in its appeal. Simply load the chamber with dry herbs and press down on the mouthpiece to begin heating. After a speedy 22 second wait time, the PAX Mini will be ready to use. The Mini only has one optimized heat setting which is surprisingly preferable given its ability to adjust the temperature based on the users’ own vaping style. It’s clear that PAX has tweaked and perfected the heat setting on the Mini and users won’t spend a second longing for more options.  

Like all PAX devices, the design is simple and sleek, no bells and whistles needed. When looking for a portable vaporizer, discretion is often a consideration for potential consumers and the Mini has perfected it. With a height of only 3.66 inches, this unsuspecting vape is smaller than the width of a hand and can fit in any pocket for maximum portability.  

PAX Mini lives up to its name with its smaller oven chamber as well. The oven capacity is at just 0.25g as opposed to the more common 0.5g oven. Dry herb vapers who purchase a small and discrete vape like the Mini are more likely to opt for shorter sessions especially outside of their homes. This makes the half-pack sized oven perfect for solo sessions and vaping on the go. Another small but significant upgrade included in both the PAX Plus and the PAX Mini is the new 3D oven screen. This, along with the included wire brush makes disassembling and cleaning the device even easier. 

At the end of the day, the PAX Mini leaves nothing to the imagination in the best way. The ultimate combination of simplicity and quality gives vapers everything they need in a handheld dry herb vaporizer. If you’re looking for a universally easy to use and ultra-portable dry herb vaporizer, look no further than the PAX Mini.
