Every core function in PAX 3 and PAX Era can be controlled by the device alone, but we've created PAX Mobile to turbocharge your experience with customizable temperature settings, color themes, security options, and more.

When paired, your device will receive periodic firmware updates to ensure that you have the most current experience available.

PAX 3 is more intelligent than other conduction vaporizers. Whether you take your time between draws, or prefer to go back-to-back rapidly, PAX 3 will cater the experience to your preferred style with its lip presence-based boosting, auto-cooling, and motion sensing technology.

Read on to learn about each profile, and find the mode to fit any mood.

 

Standard

Out-of-the-box experience 

 

Boost: Default

Cool: Default

Motion Standby: 30 seconds 

Temperature: Applies to all 4 temperature settings, and to the custom 5th setting defined in the app

Battery Life: Default. Approximately 8-10 sessions per full charge

 

The classic out-of-the-box PAX experience. This mode balances consistent vapor production and flavor preservation.

The oven temperature increases when lip presence is detected, and auto-cools when it hasn't been detected for 20 seconds. The default 30 second Motion Standby feature is in effect, which cools more rapidly than lip presence-based cooling alone.

When Motion Standby is activated, the LED indicator will change to a wavy blue light that flows downward regardless of the device's orientation. The oven temperature will drop below vaporization temperatures and preserve your material until your next draw. If motion is not detected for 3 minutes, PAX will trigger its auto-shutoff feature and turn itself off completely.

The Standard profile affects the 4 default temperature settings on the device, and will also apply to your custom 5th setting that is set within the app.

 

Boost Mode

Maximize your vapor production

 

Boost: Increased

Cool: Decreased

Motion Standby: 1 minute 

Temperature: Applies to all 4 temperature settings, and to the custom 5th setting defined in the app

Battery Life: Slightly decreased. About 1 less session than default

 

Boost Mode is for those who want more vapor at their preferred temperature setting.

When activated, the lip sensor ramps up the oven temperature faster, and waits longer than the default 20 seconds to start cooling. Motion Standby time doubles to 1 minute before being triggered, maintaining a higher temperature throughout your session. Battery life will deplete slightly faster in exchange for thicker vapor.

Boost Mode affects the 4 default temperature settings on the device, and will also apply to your custom 5th setting that is set within the app.

 

Efficiency Mode

Perfect for longer sessions

 

Boost: Default

Cool: Default

Motion Standby: 30 seconds

Temperature: Applies only to the custom 5th setting defined in the app

Battery Life: Default

 
The perfect session-style mode, Efficiency optimizes for consistent vapor production throughout your session. This mode acts similarly to the default set-up but with a key difference: it increases the oven temperature automatically. 
 
Selecting Efficiency Mode in the app enables the “Ramp” temperature selection on your PAX. The Ramp temperature selection overrides your 5th custom temperature setting, and will not apply to the 4 default settings. When selecting the 5th custom temperature on your PAX, and with Efficiency Mode enabled in the app, the LED indicator's top-right petal will shine solid red, and the bottom-left petal indicates your current temperature. The LED indicator will continue to show the normal purple and green colors during use unless you've chosen a new color theme within the app.
 
In Efficiency Mode, after your oven has heated up, the temperature setting will Ramp up automatically by 1ºF every 2 seconds while lip presence is detected.
 
Here's where it gets interesting. The maximum Ramp temperature in Efficiency Mode can't be changed, but the starting temperature can be changed in two ways:
 
Change the starting Ramp temperature within the App
 
Use this method to initially set your preferred starting temperature for Ramp:
 
  • Launch the app and turn on your device.
  • Tap the image of your PAX 3 once connected.
  • Cycle through the Dynamic Modes and select Efficiency Mode.
  • Your PAX 3 will flash to confirm having changed to this mode.
  • Without exiting the app, cycle through the temperature settings and select your favorite.
  • Your PAX 3 will flash again to confirm, and will now Ramp up from this newly selected temperature.
Changing the starting Ramp temperature within the app will lock it in. If you disconnect your device from the app, or turn it off and revisit it later, it will continue to use your new starting temperature until it's changed again. 
 
Temporarily change the starting Ramp temperature with the device
 
Use this method when you are continuing a previous session and would like to start on a higher temperature than what was originally set within the app:
 
  • Ensure that Efficiency Mode is already selected within the app.  
  • Now turn on your PAX 3 and enter temperature selection mode by holding the power button down for about 2 seconds.
  • Cycle to any of the 4 default settings and land on your preferred temperature.
  • Once chosen, shake your PAX 3 to exit temperature selection mode.
  • The starting Ramp temperature will now reflect the one you've selected.
  • If you turn your PAX 3 off, and then on again, the new starting Ramp temperature will revert to the one you had previously selected within the app.
Note that If you hold the power button to exit temperature selection mode, your PAX 3 will turn off the "Ramp" effect and only heat at the default temperature you've selected. To re-enable Ramp, re-enter temperature selection mode and cycle to your 5th custom setting.
 
 

Flavor Mode

Celebrate the nuances

 

Boost: Increased

Cool: Increased

Motion Standby: 15 seconds 

Temperature: Applies to all 4 temperature settings, and to the custom 5th setting defined in the app

Battery Life: Slightly increased. About 1 more session than default

 

Highlight the subtleties of your material. This mode optimizes for flavor preservation and on-demand vapor production. Faster boosting and cooling parameters maintain a lower temperature throughout your session.

Flavor Mode affects the 4 default temperature settings on the device, and will also apply to your custom 5th temperature that is set within the app.

 

Stealth Mode

 Keep it low key

 

Boost: No boost

Cool: Increased

Motion Standby: 15 seconds 

Temperature: Applies to all 4 temperature settings, and to the custom 5th setting defined in the app

Battery Life: Slightly increased. About 1 more session than default

 

Stealth Mode optimizes for fast cooldown between draws, maintains a lower temperature throughout your session to preserve your material's flavor. The LED Indicator's brightness also automatically dims, making this the perfect mode for the unobtrusive vaper.

Stealth affects the 4 default temperature settings on the device, and will also apply to your custom 5th temperature that is set within the app.
