About PAX vaporizers

PAX Labs has been building iconic aromatherapy vaporizers with high-quality build, great vapor clouds backed by an incredible 10-year warranty since 2012. 

The PAX 3 aromatherapy vaporizer has long been a favourite but as of late 2022, the PAX Plus vaporizer replaces it as the flagship device of the brand. A smaller PAX Mini has also been introduced as an entry-level vaporizer. 

The PAX Plus offers more customizations compared to the easy-to-use PAX Mini but both are solid and reliable vaporizers for your herbal enjoyment.

Purchase the best vaporizers at Pocket Ovens wherever you are. If you're located outside Malaysia, we offer customs clearance insurance to guarantee your order arrives to you smoothly.

Press on the mouthpiece on your PAX Plus, PAX Mini, or PAX 3 vaporizer to switch it on. Upon powering on, the PAX petals will go through the following patterns:

Startup - White lights will swirl around

Heating in Progress - Purple lights flowing upwards (up-wave)

The PAX Plus vaporizer offers a selection of 4 preset Experience Modes, allowing you to pick from various flavour and vapor combinations. 

Long press the mouthpiece button for 2 seconds to enter Experience Mode selection. Single-press on the mouthpiece button to toggle through the 4  built-in Experience Modes.

PAX Mini Temperature Settings

LED Light Guide

The PAX Mini uses a single heat mode, so once you see the lights turn green, go ahead and sip!

Do note that since there isn't any heat setting to engage for the PAX Mini, long-pressing the mouthpiece button will not cause any temperature change. It will only switch the device off.

PAX 3 Temperature Settings

LED Petals Light Guide

Just like the PAX Plus, it's the same steps to choose and select your PAX 3 heat setting. 

Enter the PAX 3 temperature selection mode by pressing and holding the mouthpiece button for a few seconds. In this mode, the LED petals on the PAX 3 show one of 4 preset temperatures.

Short-press the mouthpiece button to cycle through the 4 PAX temperature modes. Shake the device (or hold the button for a few seconds) to exit temp set mode and begin heating.

Remember, low temps get you more flavour and higher temps produce more vapor.

PAX Vaporizer Battery Indicators (White / Red Lights)

Thankfully, it's the same concept as all PAX aromatherapy vaporizers. While powered on, gently shake your PAX vaporizer to check your battery life. 

The PAX Plus, PAX Mini, and PAX 3 LED petals will turn white and indicate the battery level. Each petal corresponds to a 25% battery level. For example, 4 lit LEDs indicate between 75% - 100% of battery.

PAX Battery Indicators Pocket Ovens

When the PAX devices are low on battery, the upper-left petal will blink red three times. Get your charger out, it's time to plug your PAX pocket oven in!

If we could have one wish, it would be to have a petal indicator when cleaning is due on your PAX aromatherapy vaporizer!

PAX Vaporizer Standby Indicator (Blue Light)

Standby Mode activates when the PAX Plus or PAX Mini does not sense any movement or tilt or when there is no contact with the mouthpiece using the lips. Similarly, if you don't use or move the PAX 3 for more than 30 seconds, it will vibrate once and enter standby mode. Petals turn blue and wave in a downward motion.

Standby mode helps to preserve your material by cooling the oven. Simply moving the vaporizer or touching the mouthpiece will reactivate the heat. While your PAX is heating, PAX LED Petals turn purple, then green once it's achieved the temperature.

After 3 minutes of inactivity, the PAX vaporizers will automatically shut off.

Customize with the PAX App 

Compatible with PAX 3 & PAX Era Pro only

Change your PAX 3 Petals color mode using the PAX App, which has 4 preset color palettes; Default, Ocean, Sunset, and Mars. Check out the Pocket Ovens PAX App Guide to learn more about personalisation and customisation! 

PAX decided to skip Bluetooth connectivity on both the PAX Plus and PAX Mini, along the lines of making PAX vaporizers the easiest devices to use in the market.

PAX 3 Games

How to access and unlock?

Did you know there are 3 games you can play on your PAX 3 vaporizer? To put the PAX 3 device into game mode, hold the device flat with the petals facing upwards, all games are played with the device in this position. There are no known secret games in the PAX Plus and PAX Mini.

PAX 3 vaporizer rotate to play games
Roll the PAX 3 three times to activate the games

In the game position, roll the device forward three times. You’ll want to do it pretty precisely otherwise it will just display the battery life. 

The first game that shows up is PAXspin, roll the device 3 times again to go to PAXrun and another triple roll to enter PAXsays. You can also easily select a game through the Android and Web PAX app without rolling the PAX 3 physically. 

To exit game mode, turn off the device or deselect the selected game on the PAX app. When in game mode, the LED petals do not display the heating state or charging. 

During game mode, an additional temperature option, "Oven Off," becomes available in temp set mode. "Oven Off" is indicated by four blue LED petals when cycling through temperatures in temp set mode. The "Oven Off" selection allows you to play PAXspin without wasting material or draining significant battery life. Entering either PAXrun or PAXsays will automatically select "Oven Off" to prevent wasting material. Let’s go through the games in more detail.

PAX Spin

1 petal is illuminated the brightest. Shake the device left or right to spin the lights around. The lights spin according to the speed of your shake then slow down and stop. You can use PAXspin to play ‘spin-the-bottle’ or try aiming for a particular end petal and see who can get it.

Get creative!

PAX 3 Spin game Pocket Ovens


Play a fast-paced Pacman-styled game with four petals. According to Chief Baker, this is the best game on the PAX 3 aromatherapy vaporizer. The game starts by showing a yellow petal, which is you. It will then show a red or blue petal that you must avoid. This ‘ghost’ petal will start to move towards the yellow and you must tilt the device according to where you want the yellow petal to go. Tilt left, right, front and back to run away!

Avoid all colors except white. The white LED is a power-up that gives you the ability to eat other colored petals. The power-up lasts for 3 seconds, indicated by the other petal turning dark blue. Eating a dark blue petal takes you to the next level, where the ghost petals now move faster.

You start with 5 lives.

Eat a white petal to power-up.

Eat 4 colored petals and +1 life.

After losing a life, the PAX 3 blinks all four petals in yellow. Each full yellow blink represents the number of lives remaining. Losing all your lives restarts the game. Entering temp set mode or exiting PAXrun pauses the PAXrun game.

PAX Run Game Pocket Ovens

PAX Says

This classic game was introduced since the original PAX 1! A memory based game where your PAX 3 petals show a sequence of lights which you then must reproduce by tilting your device according to the lights.

The game starts with a random sequence of 3 lights. If you get it right, the PAX 3 LED petals pulse white and you move on to the next level. Now, the sequence consists of 4 lights. The game goes on until you get a sequence wrong, indicated by the PAX 3 LED petals pulsing red.
