Pre-filled vaporizer pods are useful tools for consumers who don't want to be bothered with packing and repacking cannabis material, or constantly cleaning their vaporizer. They're small and convenient; there's just one unknown. How can you know how long a pod will last? Of course, there is wisdom in experience, but even then, the life of a pod can vary.
What contributes to the use of material in a pod and is there any way to control it? Understanding how a pod system works is key to accurately timing how long your pod may last.
How does a pod system work?
Pod systems, or pod vapes, are simple devices consisting of a battery and a pre-filled or fillable pod that’s inserted into or otherwise attached to the battery. Pod vapes are intuitive products which have very little learning curve. The pods simply click into place, making placing, replacing, and changing pods an easy endeavor.
Pod vapes can come with what are known as "closed" or "open" pods. Closed pods are essentially disposable pods that come pre-filled with cannabis material. Once closed pods are depleted, they are disposed of and replaced with a fresh one. Open pods are intended to be reusable and can be filled with the concentrate cannabis material of your choice.
When a pod is clicked into the device contact is made with the battery, allowing electricity to flow to the pod and heat up the coil and wick inside. As the coil warms, cannabis material absorbed by the wick is vaporized and enters the mouthpiece. From there, consumers simply inhale the vapor.
What is the PAX Era?
The PAX Era is a pod vape that works with SimpleClick™ pods filled with cannabis concentrate for a quick, easy, and discreet consumer experience. It is a compact and sleek device that comes in a slate-colored, bead-blasted anodized aluminum, which evenly distributes the heat generated by the battery. PAX Era offers a temperature range of 520°F to 790°F with four available temperature settings. It can also be paired with the PAX Mobile application, which opens a greater degree of control of temperature settings and session length.
How long does a PAX Era pod last?
There is no clear-cut answer to this question. Like any consumable product, a PAX Era pod can be used quickly or it can last you for weeks or months. The amount of time the material in a pod lasts is dependent on a couple of factors, including the length of your sessions, the amount of vapor you inhale, and the temperature at which you vape.
- Length of session: Naturally, the longer your sessions, the more material you are going to vaporize. Longer, more frequent sessions will deplete pods more quickly than brief, occasional ones.
- Inhale amount: The amount of cannabis material you vaporize depends on the amount you inhale. If you pull long and deeply, you are going to use more cannabis material than someone who takes light "sips" from the device.
- Temperature: The higher the temperature, the faster the cannabis material vaporizers. When you increase temperature, more cannabis material boils away. This means you'll be vaporizing your material more quickly than you would at a lower temperature.
Each of these factors combine to determine how long it takes for your pod to be depleted. If you engage in lengthy sessions and take big puffs of vapor at high temperatures, odds are your pod will deplete more quickly than someone who takes a small puff on occasion.
Control your session with PAX Mobile
The PAX Era offers more advanced functionality when connected to the PAX Mobile application via Bluetooth®. Connecting your vape to an Apple or Android device gives you precise temperature control down to the degree. More control over your temperature means more precise control over how quickly the contents of your pod vaporize. PAX Mobile also includes a Session Control feature, which allows you to choose from four preset sessions: micro, small, medium, or large. Session Control also enables customization of vapor production and flavor output, allowing you to tailor your usage to your own preferences and stretch pods further.
Pod vapes are great choices for consumers who like discretion and mobility. They make the vaporization process a clean and easy one, eliminating the fuss of loading cannabis materials into your vape and then cleaning them out each time materials are depleted. PAX Era pods can last for quite a while if you pay attention to your temperature settings, session length, and how much you're inhaling. But even if you use your pods quickly, you can swap in another with ease and keep your session going without interruption or delay.
