As one of the best portable vaporizers on the market today, the PAX 3 has taken the world by storm. Boasting super-fast heating times, full-flavored vapor and a sleek, pocket-friendly design, this device is simply the perfect choice if you value both portability and performance in equal measure.
However, no matter how exquisitely made your device is, if you don’t take care of it it’s simply not going to function as well as it should. Cleaning your vaporizer is something that should definitely be taken seriously. But sadly, many vapers don’t – and wonder why their vaporizer isn’t performing as well as it should.
So, to ensure you keep your PAX Vaporizer in the best condition possible and continue to enjoy quality vaping sessions for a long time to come here’s your ultimate cleaning guide.
How Do I Know if My Device Needs Cleaning?
Whilst it’s clearly important to keep your vape in good condition, it’s not entirely necessary to perform a deep clean after every single use. And this leaves many users wondering how they’re supposed to know when their device actually needs to be cleaned.
The answer is simple: if your PAX 3 simply isn’t performing as well as it used to, it’s highly likely a deep clean is needed. There are also a few visible signs you can look for too, like an unsightly build-up of oils or liquids. Such build-ups are inevitably going to affect the device’s inner workings, and the solution couldn’t be easier – clean it!
What to Clean
Especially if you’re a little inexperienced with vaporizers, it can be challenging identifying precisely which sections of your device require cleaning. With regard to the PAX 3, the job is probably much simpler than you think – as only the heating chamber, oven screen, vapor path, and mouthpiece need cleaning to keep the device running to its best potential.
Dismantle & Soak
In terms of removing all components that need to be cleaned, detaching the oven lid and mouthpiece from the device is very straightforward. Then, simply insert the included cleaning brush into the exposed part of the unit to eliminate any present build-up within the vapor path. This will simultaneously detach the oven screen.
Once all required parts have been detached, create a solution of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and water in a small container – a jar is an ideal choice. Drop the oven screen and mouthpiece into the liquid, and allow it to soak for at least 20 minutes. Once the time is up, remove all pieces and allow to air dry.
Cleaning the Heating Chamber
As the inner heating chamber isn’t something that can be removed and soaked from the PAX 3, alternative methods will be required. But luckily, it’s very simple! Simply take a regular cotton bud, dip into your isopropyl alcohol solution, and gently wipe inside the device to clear any residue or build-up.
