Breaking Down Pax's New Pricing Options

on Nov 09, 2017

About a year ago now, Pax brought out their latest model, The Pax 3, which has since dominated the portable conduction market. However, all good things must come to an end, and like all vaporizers, the Pax started to drop in sale. This is completely normal, especially for top-market, luxury products like this, but Pax wanted to keep themselves updated and relevant and came up with a plan. Pax split their basic vape package into two separate kits. Essentially, the Complete Kit now offers a lot more, but manages to stay at the same price as the old Pax 3 kit, while the Device Only kit contains far less accessories but comes in at an astonishingly slashed price. If you’ve... Read more »

What Are Butane Vaporizers And How Are They Different

on Nov 02, 2017

If you’ve been in the market for a vaporizer and you’ve been looking up all of the models you’ve probably seen one common link between them all. They’re almost all digital. It’s true that that’s where the market has been leading lately since more and more of the digital models are coming out with full temperature control and smartphone apps, but there’s an older form of heat creation that goes all the way back to the creator of the vaporizer, Bill Eagle. The Butane Vaporizer fits a niche and fulfills a need that common, modern electrical models can’t fill. No matter how long the battery lasts, they’re dependent on electricity and most models will run out before they need to... Read more »

A Short List Of The Best Vape Pens To Buy

on Oct 23, 2017

Pen Vaporizers are vapes that specialize in fitting into a busy person’s busy life. Their ease of use, portability and overall stealth greatly exceed that of other, more powerful, but also more expensive, models on the planet. A pen vape is exactly as it sounds. It’s a thin vaporizer that is usually about as long as a pen and maybe about as thick as a fat cigar.

Why Should You Try A Butane Vaporizer?

on Oct 14, 2017

Butane vaporizers are the less well known member of the vaporizer species. In operation, they work with a similar principal to conduction vaporizers, putting the herb into direct contact with the heating element, vaporizing it directly. However rather than using a coil or electric element a tiny amount of butane is ignited under the chamber which will heat up and start to vaporize the herb in its chamber, similar to how a gas oven works. The NZ vaporizer scene is most familiar with electric vaporizers, be they battery powered portable vapes, or plug-in desktop vapes. They’re the defacto standard for vaporizers. Sometimes, however, people want something a bit different, and who are we to get in the way of that?... Read more »

Why You Should Buy A Convection Vape Today!

on Oct 12, 2017

Vaporizers are fantastic devices, they use heating elements to take advantage of the various boiling points of the active ingredients in herb. They gradually evaporate the ingredients, allowing you to enjoy all of the effects of your herb without any of the toxins, tars, and carcinogens that are released with combustion. This is done in one of two main ways, conduction or convection. Conduction puts the herb indirect contact with the heating element, directly vaporizing it, much like how a kitchen hob works! This has the advantage of a quick heat up time, but unfortunately it has a high risk of combustion if used incorrectly. Combustion is the last thing you want from your vape. Thankfully there’s an alternative, convection!... Read more »
