PAX 3 vs. Firefly 2 May 18 2017, 0 Comments

For serious vapers who are looking for a portable unit that can handle waxy concentrates just as well as dry herbs, there are only two *real* choices.

Sure other vapes are capable of doing this, but they are cheaper and compromise on quality in one way or another.

PAX Labs and Firefly Vapor are the gold standard when it comes to manufacturers of high-end, high-quality portable vapes.

Both of these units have been among our best sellers, with thousands of units of each sold.

Here's a head to head comparison of the two competing vaporizers from the two largest companies in the market. Which one is best for *your* unique needs?

Firefly 2

Just the basics

  • 5 Second Heat-Up Time
  • Touch Sensor Activation
  • 6 Preset Temperature Settings
  • Borosilicate Glass Vapor Path & Bowl
  • Supports Dry Herbs & Wax Concentrates
  • Dynamic Convection Heating Technology
  • Rechargeable/Replaceable 7.4v Li-Ion Battery
  • Constructed From High-Quality Magnesium Alloy
  • Available iOS/Andorid App for Enhanced Vapor Customization

Why should I buy the Firefly 2?

This goes without saying, but I'm going to say it anyway:

The Firefly 2 is one sexy looking vaporizer.

This palm-sized portable unit looks futuristic as hell, like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. When you start heating up your herbs, the orange glow that is visible in the see-through glass chamber builds your anticipation for the vaping session to come. Hint: The glowing chamber looks extra cool at night or in a dark room. It's almost too eye-catching. I've found that when I bust out my Firefly 2 at a party I'm instantly surrounded by a bunch of people asking me about it and trying to take a puff.

Adding to the futuristic appeal of the Firefly is the fact that there are *no* buttons.

You read that right.

The Firefly 2 is activated using a touch-sensor. Just place your fingers on the sides of the unit and it's ready to go.

You'll also get a really useful iOS/Android app so you can control the temperature and other features right from your phone. You do everything else on your phone anyway, so why not control your vaping experience too?

Everything about the Firefly feels high-end, as it should with that expensive price tag. This vaporizer isn't for the price-conscious shopper who is willing to sacrifice quality just to save a buck. This is for the true vaping connoisseur who wants the best that money can buy.

If that describes you, then you'll definitely want to seriously consider picking up the Firefly 2.

Just the facts

  • High-polish Anodized Aluminium
  • 3500 mAh Battery
  • 15 Second Heat Time
  • Efficiency Mode
  • Bluetooth App Enabled
  • Dual Use
  • Haptic Feedback
  • Medical Grade Materials

Why should I buy the PAX 3?

The PAX 3 is just as gorgeous as the Firefly, but in a much more refined, less techy looking manner.

The PAX chooses to focus less on the bells and whistles that will appeal to more tech-obsessed people. Rather, the focus here is on sleek, sexy, curved lines and a smooth, polished exterior.

Even the color options (other than the standard-issue black, you can pick from gold, rose gold, and silver) scream luxury. 

The PAX 3 is essentially a work of art.

But it's not all show.

The performance specs are more than solid. The PAX 3 is an upgrade from the previous version, giving you the ability to vape both waxes and dry herbs. 

The heating chamber is easily one of the best in the business. If you've used cheaper vapes, you're familiar with the awful phenomenon of having some of your herb being burnt while the rest seems unused.

The PAX heating chamber *actually* heats your herb or wax evenly, maximizing the effectiveness of your herb and helping it to last longer (thus saving you $$$).

The PAX 3 also includes an iOS/Android app, but unlike the Firefly, this one lets you control your temperature in increments of one degree Fahrenheit instead of using presets. If you're a control freak (I say that with all due respect), then you'll love the insane level of customization you can achieve with the PAX 3.

Bottom line

As you can see, they're both incredible vaporizers.

It comes down to your own unique preferences.

Are you a tech guy or more artistically inclined?

Do you like to have precise control or are temperature presets cool with you?

Are you willing to pay more than three Benjamins for a vape or would you rather be more frugal and save a little bit of dough?

There are no wrong answers. No matter which unit you purchase, you'll be getting one of the best possible vaping experiences that money can buy.

I don't throw that around lightly.

You really can't do any better than one of these two if you're looking for a vape in the portable dry herb/wax compatible category.
