Pax 2 Black

After weeks of speculation, PAX 2 has been officially announced!  PAX Labs is on a mission.  After recently parting ways with their Ploom tobacco brand, and dropping the price of the original PAX to $199, they follow up this week with an announcement that the PAX2 is finally here!  We caught this on’s blog today.  The Price has increased $30!  We are a bit shocked by this, but here’s what you get for the money:

 PAX 2 Announced

“A stunning array of innovations and improved functionality”


Self Optimizing 

  • Higher battery capacity for 30% longer runtime. Deeper oven with more even, efficient heating. Editors note:  A deeper oven that is also not as wide.  They don’t claim increased capacity, just ‘deeper’.
  • Four heat settings as opposed to three on the OG PAX.  “lip sensing technologies” that optimize power and temp during use.  That explains the extra $30. 

Streamlined Design

  • One button interface, minimal maintenance, magnetic charging dock.
  • 25% smaller than PAX 1 and 10% lighter.

Elegant & Fun

They are actively marketing that the ‘party mode’ as an ‘entertaining social experience”. Editor’s note:  This is listed under  “A stunning array of innovations and improved functionality” although it existed in the old PAX 1.
