The APX Dry Herb Vaporizer by US company Pulsar is a very special portable vaporizer, in my humble opinion. With a retail price of $60 only, it is one of the cheapest herbal vaporizers available in north america. Honestly, I have no clue why this one is so cheap… Even other Dry Herb vaporizers by Pulsar are almost twice the price of the APX!
However, that’s not what I mean, when I say this is a very special vaporizer. What makes the APX really unique is the fact that it is truely the smallest portable herbal vaporizer I have ever seen! I have expected something in the size of the titan vaporizers, but in fact it’s just a little bit bigger than a regular lighter. In terms of size, it even beats the tiny pax 2. Of course, it feels a lot cheaaper and the housing of the APX is all plastic, but I think you can’t expect the same quality of a $300 vaporizer, for just $60.
The APX vaporizer does require a couple of burn offs, before you will use it for the first time. The „new smell“ will disappear quickly, though. The vapor quality is not the best, but it’s absolutely fine, I’ve seen far worse in the past. Also all five temperature settings make sense to me. The APX is definitely a fine vape for beginners!
When looking at this small portable vaporizer, I could have sworn that the battery life would be the big disadvantage of the APX, but that’s actually not true, as well. The battery of the APX has enough power to let you vape a couple of bowls, before you have to recharge it. Especially for the small size, the battery life is in fact quite impressive!
The only thing I don’t like too much about the APX is that the airpath is not separated from the electronics, however most people don’t seem to care about that, anyway. The Flowermate vaporizers would not be so popular, if people would actually care.
Overall, I see the APX as a combination of the pax 2 in terms of size and the flowermate in terms of technical parts and product quality. Definitely, not the worst pairing in my humble opinion!
For $60 only, you’ll get a advanced vaporizer, which will please beginners for sure, especially if you’re looking for a very small and discreet vaporizers, you can easily hide in your hands. Hardly, you will find anything comparable in the north american market for the couple of bucks, you will have to pay for the APX.
