Pax Labs has gone out of their way to make the newest Pax vaporizers that much more affordable, reducing their prices dramatically. The Pax 3 can now be picked up for just $199.99, or $249.99 for the complete kit. The Pax 2 on the other hand is now just $149.99, which is substantially less expensive than when it first came out.
The newest version, version three, is backed by a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, whereas version two is backed only by a 2-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
Prior to this recent announcement from Pax Labs, the Pax 3 vaporizer was available in black, gold, silver, and rose gold — all of which are anodized aluminum with a mirror-polished finish. While these variants will still continue to be sold for a limited time, the new colors and finishes that are replacing them are already available. The new versions, which include some new colors as well as a recycling of some of the old ones, now have a matte finish, which those of us at VaporizerWire.com think looks that much better than the old finish. The new colors include:
Commenting on the price reduction, the company’s general manager, JJ O’Brien, said in a statement that the company has been “able to achieve additional efficiencies in” their “manufacturing process through technical innovation and investment,” which they are now “pleased to be able to pass these savings on” to their “loyal” customer base.
“As we are able to achieve additional efficiencies in our manufacturing process through technical innovation and investment, we are pleased to be able to pass these savings on to our loyal customers.”
What’s The Difference Between The Cheap Pax 3 And Its More Expensive Counterpart?
As you may have noted, there is a less expensive version of the Pax 3 sold by Pax Labs and its authorized retailers. So why is it that much cheaper than the “complete” kit? The less expensive kit comes with the vape itself, its 3500 mAh battery, battery charger, a couple of mouthpieces, a maintenance kit and a 10-year warranty. The other version, the complete kit, comes with all that plus a multi-tool, a couple of oven lids, three screens for the oven, a protective carrying pouch, and one accessory that really makes all the difference: the concentrate insert. With the concentrate insert, which can be purchased separately as a standalone accessory to be used with either kit, the vape transforms from a loose-leaf only portable vaporizer to one that can handle concentrated blend types just as well as it can dried blends. For those who want to make the most of the Pax 3, the concentrate insert is obviously the way to go. For those who don’t care and intend on only vaping dried blend, the cheaper kit that excludes the insert may very well be the more logical decision.
Why Buy Pax 2?
Given that the Pax 3 is now available for purchase, why might some users opt to purchase the older Pax 2? One reason is the fairly dramatic price difference. With the cheaper Pax 3 kit now selling for roughly $200, the Pax 2 is still that much cheaper with a price tag of approximately $150. That’s a saving of $50. So while the Pax 3 is clearly the superior vaporizer, for some, that $50 savings is reason enough to pickup the old one instead.
