The second generation PAX vaporizer is more advanced than the first generation, evolving the battery life, oven, and mouthpiece. The PAX 2 is slightly smaller than its predecessor weighing 90 grams, 3.87 inches tall, and 1.2 inches wide. Functionality has evolved and this generation is much better than the first.

Design and Features
The PAX 2 is a polished, anodized aluminum body similar to the first generation. The differences start here with a very different mouthpiece. You can use a wide mouthpiece like the one from the prior version that is raised or the new version that comes on the PAX 2. The mouthpiece is quite special because it is a rescinded mouthpiece much different than any other device on the market. The mouthpiece also has a button function that allows you to fluctuate between temperature settings.
The PAX 2 has been upgraded to include four different heating settings that increase in increments of 15 degrees Fahrenheit from 360 to 420 degrees Fahrenheit. The oven is also about 20% deeper, but because the device is slimmer the same amount of herbs generally fit into the device, so I am not sure how much of a difference there actually is. To load the oven, you simply fill it in the same manner as you did with the PAX. The oven is located at the bottom of the device. Fill it and hold down on the mouth piece to start the heating process, press down on the mouthpiece at the top of the device to control your temperature settings. It will take about a minute to fully heat up.
The PAX 2 still uses the nice LED X illuminated indicator to tell you what battery level you are at and what temperature setting you are using. The lights change to different colors to let you know when you are ready to vape, orange to red colors are used so that you know what temperature you are at and how much charge is left.
I have talked about the mouthpiece a lot in this Pax 2 review. It is very different and some may like it, but one drawback of the new rescinded look is the fact that you are actually touching the metal when you inhale. The metal can get quite hot at 420 degrees Fahrenheit. There is a lip sensor that knows when you are using the device so that it cools down, but in some situations it may not cool quickly enough.
The PAX 2 is smaller than first generation PAX 1; however, the battery is much better allowing you to get about 8 sessions of vaping out of it before needing to recharge. Most casual users can last a day with this device. The charging is different because it magnetically attaches to the device like an Apple Watch does. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the device, which is relatively quick.
