What makes the PAX 3 a great concentrate vape pen is that it has all of the key things you look for in a good vape:

The PAX 3 concentrate pen is about is about 4 inches tall, an inch wide, and a half inch deep. It can easily fit in your hand, a pocket, or a purse, taking up very little space.

Easy to Clean

The clever design of the PAX 3 makes it extremely easy to clean despite is small size. To do this, simply take out the oven, the mouthpiece, and clean them properly. THAT IS IT. No more clogging, burning, or needing new supplies to run your vape pen.

Good for Concentrates and Dry Herbs 

Not only is the PAX 3 a great concentrate vape pen, it can also handle dry herbs too! This makes it very versatile, and can save those from enjoy smoking both from having to purchase two separate vaporizers.

Temperature Control 

You can easily control the temperature on the PAX 3, as it has well over 60 different temperature settings. This also helps with the switch between dry herbs and oils or concentrates.

10-Year Warranty

A DECADE LONG WARRANTY. That is the type of warranty you get on a washer machine! Typically PAX has a 2 year warranty for products but clearly they are feeling confident in the PAX 3 especially. This makes it one of the longest lasting vape pens! 

High Value

We have sampled a lot of vapes over the years, and the PAX 3 definitely stands up against some of the best.

While it has a seemingly high price, it is one of the best vaporizers in the world. Nothing stands up to its warranty, and on top of that, the PAX 3 is small, sleek, and easy to use. If you are willing to spend money on a long lasting hand held vaporizer, go with the PAX 3.


There are a few things about the PAX 3 that we did not like. Especially when compared with some other options on the market. In our opinion, this one con doesn’t outweigh the positives and it is still a good purchase.

Short Battery Life 

Honestly, the 90 minute of usage per charge is great! But let’s face it, it is never convenient when things die. The PAX 3 does not take a long time to charge if it dies on you, but it cannot be used while it is charging.

PAX 3 Deals 

There are two options when purchasing the PAX 3, the Complete Kit or the Device Only.

Complete Kit ($249.99)

The kit is a good value for only $50 more, coming with the tools you need to take your PAX 3 to the next level. You can also customize the color, and get additional attachments as well as supplies.

The Device Only is as straightforward as it gets coming with only the Device and Charger while the complete kit comes with several accessories to enhance your smoking experience.

How It Works  

The PAX 3 is extremely easy to use.

Although this device is loaded with technology, PAX made it as user-friendly as possible.

The PAX 3 has 3 main parts:

  1. Button (Top of Device)
  2. Light (Middle of Device)
  3. Oven (Bottom of Device)

To turn the device on all you do is press the button one time. The device will vibrate once it is turned on.

Once on, the light will glow purple which means it is heating. The PAX 3 typically takes 22 seconds to heat up and will turn the light green once it is ready.

There are 4 preset temperature settings that can be changed by holding the top button for two seconds.

  • 1 LED: Low Temp (360* F)
  • 2 LED: Med-Low Temp (380* F)
  • 3 LED: Med-High Temp (400*F)
  • 4 LED: High Temp (420* F)

Our Best Tip: Use the PAX 3 Mobile App

If you are using the PAX Mobile App than there is a lot more flexibility with the temperature. You are capable of choosing the temperature of the vape down to the degree.

Once the PAX is set to your preferred setting you can load the herb or concentrate in the oven. The oven can be accessed on the bottom of the vape by removing the magnetic cover. Be sure to replace the oven lid once you have packed the oven.

Our Honest Review of the PAX 3: B+

Overall, the PAX 3 hand vaporizer is one of the best concentrate vapes in the world. The company has been in business since 2007, and have become well known for producing products that are dependable with high quality vaping experiences.

The PAX 3 has just about everything you could ask for in a vaporizer:

  • Small and easy to clean
  • Durable
  • Awesome Design
  • Long Lasting
  • 10 Year Warranty
  • Use for Concentrates & Dry Herbs
  • Temperature Control
  • Great Value

It does however have a less than great battery life, and that can be a game changer for some people. For that reason, we at HelpingPot give it a B+.
