Where have all the PAX gone?

on Aug 20, 2018

Unfortunately, PaxLabs are currently experiencing some customs issues and are unable to get their vaporizers into our beautiful country; therefore, we cannot stock the Pax Vaporizers. We are immensely sorry for any inconvenience caused and we can only hope that these alternatives can suffice. We have some super cool and discreet vaporizers to help satisfy your Pax craving!  

Pax 

The Pax 2 and Pax 3 are a force to be reckoned with in the vaporizer community, but many other vaporizers have that edge depending on what is paramount to you in a vaporizer. While we can’t promise you an identical experience with the use of other vaporizers, we can help find one that is best suited for you and your lifestyle. Our top suggestions are the Arizer Air II and the DaVinci IQ. Two stellar vaporizers available here on Namaste New Zealand. In this blog, I will breakdown and discuss why the Arizer Air II and DaVinci IQ are the two best alternatives to the Pax. 

DaVinci 

davinci IQ

 

Coming from the hands of DaVinci comes the beautiful DaVinci IQ, staying true to their innovative legacy; they have executed the DaVinci IQ to perfection! The DaVinci IQ has similar features of that you would find on an extravagantly priced vaporizer.  The IQ is the third vaporizer to arise from the hands of DaVinci, so, with two other vaporizers on the market, you know they have the experience required to make a great vaporizer. The IQ is a robust yet small vaporizer that can provide dense vapor and is the first vaporizer on the market to feature a 100% ceramic zirconia airpath and mouthpiece to make sure that every hit is tasty and smooth. DaVinci are changing the game with this state-of-the-art conduction vaporizer. The DaVinci IQ employs some sweet features like Bluetooth connectivity to access the mobile app; you do need a smartphone for this feature, while it is not essential, it does unlock the vaporizers full potential! The app gives you total control over the way your material is heated up. To top it all off, the IQ has an extended battery life, so your sessions can last longer; granted you can too.  

Arizer Air II

Next up, is the Arizer Air II. Coming from the great Canadian manufactures all the way the NZ. Arizer have made yet another stunning practical vaporizer with the Air II. The Air II is a dry herb convection vaporizer with a heat up time of only 80 seconds! The Air II has a whopping long battery life of over 90 minuets after a single charge. This vaporizer sports a borosilicate glass for the nozzle for a smoother and thicker hit. The Air II has an ingenious auto shut off times for our forgetful vapers. The Air II has a stunning LED screen that displays the temperature and battery life. This portable vaporizer is sleek, innovatively engineered and a powerhouse; much like our beloved rugby team.

Comparison Comparison

When choosing a vaporizer, cost is always a decisive factor. The Arizer Air II comes in at a nicely priced $330.95 and the DaVinci IQ stands at a reasonable $429.95. Yes, the IQ is a tad more expensive, while both vaporizers are amazing units, the (personally speaking) the IQ takes the edge. But what you’re looking for in a vaporizer in completely different to what I may look for in a vaporizer.
