Alrighty, here’s the lowdown on how to use your Pax 2 like a pro. 

  1. Start by charging it with the included USB cable.

  2. While it’s juicing, remove the magnetic oven lid and grind your dry herb to a fine consistency.

  3. Once fully charged, pack the oven with your herb, replace the lid, and turn the Pax 2 on by pressing the center of the mouthpiece.

  4. Wait for the LED lights to turn green, and you’re good to go!

  5. Now, take a slow, gentle draw and enjoy the ride.

Packing The Pax 2 For Best Use

When packing your Pax 2, tighter is better, but stay moderate! You want a snug fit but not so tight that it’s impossible to draw from. 

Fill the oven with your finely ground herb, then gently tamp it down with the back of a pen or a similar tool. Pro tip: pack it about 3/4 full for the best experience.

How To Turn Off A Pax 2 When Not Using It

When it’s time to call it quits (temporarily), turning off your Pax 2 is a piece of cake. Press and hold the mouthpiece’s center until the LED lights turn off. 

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! And don’t worry, the device has an auto-shutoff feature if you forget or get too distracted by, well, you know.


The Best Draw Technique

Now, let’s talk about the art of the draw. The secret to the perfect Pax 2 hit? Slow and steady wins the race! Take a long, gentle pull from the mouthpiece and let the vapor build up in your lungs. Hold it for a few seconds, then exhale slowly. Trust us. It’s worth the patience.

Download The User Guide Manual

If you’re a fan of knowing all the ins and outs, download the user guide manual from the Pax website. It’ll give you all the details you need to become a Pax 2 master. Plus, having a reference is always good if you need to remember something or troubleshoot.

Tricks, Games, And Easter Eggs

Party Mode

Want to share the love? Enter Party Mode by rolling the Pax 2 three times quickly. The lights will change colors, and the device will adjust its settings for optimal group use. Now, pass it around and let the good times roll!

Screen Trick

The Screen Trick is a nifty little hack that lets you use less herb while still getting great hits. Fold a pipe screen into a U-shape and place it in the oven on top of your packed herb. This creates a smaller oven space, making your herb last longer.

Stealth Mode

Need to keep your sesh on the down-low? Activate Stealth Mode by holding the Pax 2 horizontally and rolling it three times. The LED lights will dim, making it easier to vape discreetly.

Activate Simon On Pax 2

Feeling playful? Your Pax 2 has a hidden game of Simon built-in! Hold the device horizontally and rotate it 12 times to start the game. The lights will flash colors in a pattern, and you’ll need to tilt the Pax 2 in the direction of the corresponding color to play. Get ready for some stealthy fun while you vape!


How many hits can you get from one session?

The number of hits you can get from a single oven load depends on various factors, such as how tightly you pack the herb and the temperature setting you use. On average, you can expect about 10-20 satisfying draws per session.

Can you use concentrates in a Pax 2?

While the Pax 2 is designed for dry herb use, you can avoid using concentrates if you’re adventurous. Just sandwich a small amount of concentrate between layers of dry herb to prevent gooey messes, or you can get the Pax concentrate insert.

Can you put kief in a Pax 2?

Sure thing! Like with concentrates, layer your kief between dry herb to keep your Pax 2 clean and functioning at its best. This can give you an extra potent vaping experience, so be prepared!

Can I use a regular screen in my Pax 2?

While it’s not recommended, you can use a regular pipe screen in a pinch. Just make sure it’s appropriately shaped and sized to fit the oven. However, we recommend using official Pax screens for the best performance and experience.

Can I use my Pax 2 while charging?

The Pax 2 doesn’t support pass-through charging, so you must wait to charge fully before using it. But hey, good things come to those who wait, right?

Can I use my Pax 2 at 25 percent?

Absolutely! The Pax 2 will work fine at 25 percent battery life, but remember that the battery won’t last as long as if fully charged. It’s always a good idea to keep it charged, so you don’t find yourself high and dry (pun intended).


And there you have it, folks! You’re now a bona fide Pax 2 expert, ready to vape to cloud nine. Always use your vaporizer responsibly and take care of it so it can take care of you. Now enjoy your Pax 2 (and read our review too), you wild and wonderful herb connoisseur!
