Era Pods: Refills +

We believe design, precision and quality are important in creating the best vapor experiences. At this time, empty pods are only sold to Bloom Farms in California and The Clinic in Colorado.

PAX Era pods are meant to be disposed of once empty. Attempting to refill Era pods will cause leaking and may cause damage to your device not covered under the 1 Year Ltd Warranty.

Era Device: Functionality +

Unlike other concentrate devices that always apply the same power regardless of the coil temperature, Era features PAX proprietary algorithm-controlled heating. Temperature control is the ideal way to deliver consistent performance and flavor for a wide variety of material.

Era will heat using 8W until the heater reaches your selected target temperature, at that point variable wattage is in play depending on the current temperature of the nichrome heater. Throughout each session, the wattage applied to the heater is automatically adjusted and regulated to ensure just the right power at all times.

All this to say your last puff tastes just as good as the first.

Era Device: Temperature Settings +

Fahrenheit: Low: 520, Med-Low: 610, Med-High: 700, High: 790

Celcius: Low: 270ºC, Med-Low: 320, Med-High: 370, High: 420

Era Pods: Volume +

PAX Era pods were designed to hold up to .5 grams. Actual volume may vary by concentrate and location.

Era Pods: Pod Lifetime +

The lifetime of a pod is dependent on a few factors including the temperature setting, type and viscosity of concentrate.

We estimate the average range of puffs over the lifetime of one pod is between 300-500 puffs.

Era Pods: Design +

The Era pod utilizes a single 2mm silica wick, but unlike other cartridges which only use single ended wicks causing them to dry out quickly, both ends of the Era pod wick are submerged, allowing for improved wick saturation and performance across a full range of oil viscosities.

The Pod tank (in contact with the oil) is designed using all food grade plastics. Other Era pod components include gold plated brass, the nichrome heater and cotton batting to absorb condensation.

Era Device: Battery +

The Era device features a 240mAh Lithium-ion rechargeable battery. Time to full charge is approximately 45 minutes via the micro USB to USB cable included in your device kit. Devices may require charging out of the box before using for the first time. Overall battery life is impacted by a variety of factors including temperature setting and length of individual sessions. We estimate the battery life from a full charge to last up to 200 puffs.

Era Maintanence: General State +

PAX Era requires minimal to no maintenance. We recommended that you keep your device in a protective case to ensure it stays clean and safe. It's fine to leave Era pods inserted in between sessions.

Era Maintanence: Storing your device +

If you plan to store your PAX Era for awhile, we recommend removing the pod and ensuring your device is significantly charged. If you're using the PAX app you may want to enable Child Lockout.

Storing PAX Era for an extended amount of time (a month or longer) with a low battery may make it difficult to regain battery functionality when you're ready to use it again. As a consumable component of the device, PAX Era batteries are not covered under the 1 Year Ltd Warranty.

Era Device: Replacement Parts? +

There are no parts that require periodic replacement.

Era Support: Warranty +

Era Device State: Puffing / Drawing +

The white LED indication will be dim during a puff and increase in brightness slightly as you finish your draw.

Era Device State: Standby +

After 10 seconds of inactivity the LEDs dim completely. There are no ON / OFF buttons for PAX Era. Just pick it up and take a puff to wake it up. When not in active use the LEDs will remain dark.

Era Device State: Charging Indication +

While charging, each LED petal glows to indicate 25% increments of battery charge.

A pulsing white petal indicates current charge level.

Solid white LEDs indicate charge level complete.

Four solid LEDs mean your battery is 100% charged.

Era Device Interaction: Battery Level Indication +

With a firm grip, give your PAX Era a couple shakes to display your device's current battery level on the LEDs. Just like charging, each petal will glow white to indicate 25% increments of charge, e.g. three white LEDs equal approximately 75% battery life left. Battery level can also be viewed on the app.

Era Device Interaction: Low Battery Indication +

When Era needs to be charged, all LEDs blink red 3 times before the device powers down.

Era Device Interaction: Pod Detection Indication +

White LED's sweep downward when pod is inserted.

Blue LED's sweep upward when pod is removed.

Era Device Interaction: Temp Set Mode +

In Temp Set Mode each LED indicates a temperature selection by the number and color of petals displayed.
One green LED indicates the Low default temp setting. Two yellow LED's indicate the Med-Low default temp setting. Three orange LED's indicate the Med-High setting. Four red LED's indicate the High default temp setting.

To enter Temp Set Mode, first shake the device then remove the Era pod. Once the pod is removed the LED will start by displaying your current selection then the petals will slowly begin to cycle through the remaining temperature settings. Reinsert the pod when you see your desired setting indicated. Once you've selected your temperature, Era will confirm back by pulsing the selection's matching LED indication.

If you've set a custom temperature through the app, it will be displayed on the LEDs between the High default temperature setting and the Low default temperature setting.

Pro Tip: It's not necessary to fully remove the pod from the device to enter Temp Set Mode. You may find raising the pod from the device slightly is helpful.

Era Device Interaction: Session Usage +

Depending on how much control over your experience you prefer, there are times you may want to meter your session usage as you become more familiar with PAX Era. An individual session is measured through a series of consecutive petal indications.

To check your current session usage after a draw or two or ten, give PAX Era a double tap with your finger. As you progress through your session more petals light up and change color, first, cycling through 4 green LEDs, then blue LEDs followed by red LEDs before returning to green.

Pro Tip: Usage meters may vary from one person to another and from pod to pod. You'll learn how to read the petals as relative measurements for your sessions. Session usage metering will reset to zero 30 minutes after your last puff or if manually reset.

Era Device Interaction: Session Reset +

If you'd like to reset your usage meter during any session, tap the device six consecutive times with your finger.

Era will confirm the reset by displaying a counter-clockwise green swirl indication. This is also displayed when session usages is or very close to zero petals.

Era App Feature: Full Temperature Range +

When Era is paired with the app you can fine tune your device's temperature setting. Click on the image of your Era in the app to open the Temperature Range selection.

Swiping left or right gives you a Quick Adjust and will decrease or increase the temperature range setting by 10 degree increments.
Swipe up or down to Fine Tune adjust by 1 degree increments.

While adjusting your device's temperature settings, Era's LEDs will blink a corresponding temp color to confirm you selection.

Era App Feature: LED Brightness +

Within the app's Settings screen, you can adjust the LEDs brightness using the slider. As you adjust the slider, the LED will blink to confirm your selection.

Era App Feature: Child Lock +

If Child Lockout is enabled, PAX Era will not heat when attempting to puff from the device and will instead show a counter-clockwise red LED animation.

Era App Feature: Game Modes +

Play games on the device's LED display: "Simon" "PAX Man" and "Spin the PAX". Game Modes can be accessed both with and without app connectivity. Uncheck the selected game on the app or remove the pod from the device to exit a Game Mode

To enter Game Modes without the app: Slowly roll the device horizontally, three times. Once in Game Mode rolling the device again will always advance to the next game.
