Home / Blog / Staff Tips and Tricks: Pax by Kelsey! Hello everyone! My name is Kelsey and I am one of your dedicated Customer Service Representatives here at Vape World! Not many people can say this, but I love my job! My favorite vaporizer is the ultra-cool Pax, so I wanted to share with you some tips and tricks about this amazing device.The Pax vaporizer by Ploom has exploded on the market, and its popularity is spreading as quickly as wildfire. The Pax is super sleek, 100% portable, and fits in the palm of your hand. Personally, I think this crafty device is helping to revolutionize our industry. Sized to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand!Handling your questions and inquiries everyday has helped to increase my own personal knowledge about different devices in the industry. Every day at Vape World we handle more questions about Pax than one person could come up with alone. Here’s just a few of our top tips and tricks for this amazing device...- Pax parts, especially screens, are always in high demand. To help prolong the life of your screens, soak them in 91% isopropyl alcohol for 24-48 hours. Rinse them immediately in HOT water after soaking, and your screens should be good to use again.- Just like your favorite fine-tuned Italian sports car (my favorite is the Ferrari LaFerrari!) your Pax will need to be cleaned on a regular basis. From our experience, we recommend cleaning your Pax after every dozen uses or so to keep it in top performance. Remember, a clean Pax is a happy Pax!- You can use the original box from the manufacturer as a convenient vape case. There’s plenty of room for your Pax, charger, cleaning kit, and even a small Aerospaced Grinder.- To get the best vapor out of your Pax, I recommend that your blends are dried and that they are ground very finely. I recommend filling your vape basket very full and very tight.- Wrapping a rubber band around your Pax will keep it from slipping and sliding out of your hand or around your counter top. Green means go!- Pax is smart and will let you know when it needs attention. If your mouthpiece action seems to be a bit sticky, or if your Pax LED indicator is displaying the temperature setting when your mouthpiece is in the “on” position, don’t fret! Ploom now includes with every new unit the same food-safe, water soluble lubricant used in the manufacturing process, and additional lubricant is also available for purchase. This lubricant breaks up any build-up, enhances the detection sensor for the mouthpiece and will keep your Pax working smoothly. Applying lubricant takes only a matter of seconds and can be applied in between your regular Pax cleanings. Keep in mind, a little goes a long way!What are your favorite tips and tricks for the Pax?

Keeping your Pax clean keeps it always work without any problems. Thanks for the screens, extra lube and saved me from my lost oven cover. I will continue to spread the word about Pax and Vape World.. VapeForest.com December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Never thought to wrap a rubber band around the unit to keep it in place. Not a bad idea. Never had a problem with it slipping, however, it's easy to see how this would prove beneficial to those who have their dropped Pax or seen it slide off of a surface. Best advice for Pax users: CLEAN & LUBE regularly. Doc December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Great article on the Pax, did not think about using a rubber band. Thanks a lot for the tips! MikB December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply What do you think of the screen method when you don't want to fill up the whole chamber? pete December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply I charge my Pax upside down or oven down, keep oils from running down the tube and making the mouth piece real sticky Dick Brocato December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply My pax quit heating what do I need to do I also want to purchase a car charger for my pax Vape World December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Hello Mr. Brocato!

We're looking forward to getting your Pax acting like new again! Paul December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply The lubricant is to fix a defect and should be provided under warranty to those eligible. Also how come no one discusses the importance of cleaning the edges of the screen. My unit clogs and is hard to draw after one or two sessions and I need to pop out the screen and clean edges. This is biggest con with the PAX but still best Joey December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Hi Paul! We are familiar with the issue you mentioned and we may be able to help. Please take a moment to contact our service team. They are available at (877.865.2260) or send them an email at (info.vapeworld.com). We look forward to helping you with your Pax! PV Pro December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Good tip on the rubber band! I think it would be a good idea on these portables to have a really small pad of some sorts (kind of like on the Plenty) where if you don't want to use a lot of material, you can lay it on top and it can compress it better. Vaporizer Judge December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Thanks for the great insight on cleaning the screen. I'm one of those users who goes to way too many screens. It's a pain in the ass having to stockpile them. The rubberband tip is too easy and works like a charm. Thanks for the great tips. mrvapo December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Have been using Pax for a few months. I have not cleaned the screen yet. Will definitely follow your advice! dmik December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Can you vap [dry blends] in the pax Simpson December 12, 2016 at 4:05 pm Reply Have you ever thought bout adding a little bit more than jusst yourr articles?
