APX 2 Vaporizer

If you’re a seasoned and passionate vaper, you surely keep track of the state-of-the-art vaporizers and vape pens that are launched from time to time. That said you may have heard that Pulsar, a firm that specializes in manufacturing versatile vaporizers, has come up with a new vape-the Pulsar APX V2. Pulsar APX-the original version was a runaway hit with vapers, thanks to the vape’s excellent performance on all fronts. With the release of the successor to APX 1-the APX Version 2 or simply V2-Pulsar intends to take vaping to the next level.

The Pulsar APX V2 is a vast improvement on its predecessor-it heats up dry herbs faster, offers you greater leeway in monitoring temperature, and comes with a LED screen that clearly shows battery charge and temperature. Additionally, the upgraded vape is now more discreet and portable, enabling vapers to use the gadget with greater ease and convenience. Nevertheless, the APX V2 is good only for vaping dry herbs as Pulsar has done away with the attachment which enabled you to vape concentrates, oil, and wax extracts.

Though a proportion of vapers might feel inconvenienced because of the downgrading, the improved design of APX V2 more than compensates for the reduction as users get to inhale premium quality dry herb vapors. Other features and functionalities of the APX 2 are identical to its forerunner. All in all experienced, as well as novice vapers, can look forward to making the most of their sessions with the Pulsar APX V2.

 What Comes in the Kit?

What comes in the kit?

The APX V2 kit contains everything you need to begin your vaping session. In other words, you do not need to buy any component or accessory separately. You might be somewhat amazed as to how a vaporizer which is so compact and diminutive could be so versatile, but the plain fact is that the APX V2 is incredibly performance-oriented.

The vape is just 4 inches in length and has a very compact body allowing you to hold it easily in your hand as well as carry it effortlessly. The APX V2 is so small that you could put away a couple of these in your shirt or trouser pocket.

Why Get the Pulsar APX 2 Vaporizer?

Vapers can rest assured that they’ll find using the APX V2 more convenient, compared to its predecessor. Regarding size, the device is a tad bigger than a standard cigarette lighter which means you could easily cart 2-3 such gadgets though carrying one should suffice. Do not judge the effectiveness of this vape by its size-it is packed to the hilt with some resourceful features that facilitate thorough enjoyment of vaping sessions.

Here’s a rundown of the APX V2’s worthwhile features.

Intuitive design

You’d have to press the APX V2 into service to convince yourself as to how a vape that stands only 4 inches tall could be so handy. Yes, this vaporizer is so undersized (and immensely cute as well) that you could grasp at least two of them in your palm. And you can bet you could draw in the vapors without attracting anybody’s attention.

The fact that this vaporizer, unlike the APX V1, does not have a screen is what accounts for its compactness. Pulsar has installed an attractive and functional silicone insert in place of the screen, thereby allowing you to heat and vaporize even the densest of dry herbs within seconds. Moreover, the broad LED screen displays everything in a crystal clear manner.

Furthermore, the superior design of the detachable mouthpieces let you take full pleasure in your sessions. Finally, the ergonomic design implies that you can vape discreetly, especially when you’re traveling or in the company of strangers.          

Leeway to choose from multiple temperature settings

The revamped Pulsar APX V2 has five built-in temperature settings which are one feature it shares with the original product. The initial temperature at which you can set the vape is 180˚C and after that choose from increments of 10˚C, the maximum being 220˚C. You can see the markings for all the five temperatures at the device’s backside.

The moment you choose a specific temperature, the LED light underneath the marking lights up indicating that the dry herbs will be heated up to your desired temperature. 

Speeded up Heating

The heating compartment of the V2 is more spacious than that of the APX V1. The extra space signifies that you will be able to put in some extra amount of herbal blends, thereby allowing you to inhale vapors for a longer period. On the other hand, the upgraded vaporizer heats dry herbs 30 seconds faster than the V1.

So, you’re ready to commence vaping in no time. This improved functionality comes to your aid, particularly when you want to take in a few inhalations while you’re on the go. 

Vapor Quality

The APX V2, given its affordable price point, delivers a better quality of vapors when compared with the performance of other similar vaporizers. Despite featuring an advanced silicone cooling system, the vapors stay relatively hot when they reach the mouthpiece. The discrepancy can be attributed to the shortness of the mouthpiece and also due to its location just above the heating compartment.

The best way out of this discrepancy is to set the temperature at lower points to allay build up of heat. Moreover, if you set the vape at lower temperatures, you’ll be able to take in vapors that a perfect balance of all the ingrained flavors of the herbs.

 How to Use the Pulsar APX 2 Vaporizer

How to use the Pulsar APX V2 vape?

You’ll be able to use the APX V2 with extraordinary ease, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned vaper or have recently started vaping. You can say that the USP of this vaporizer is its simplicity of use. Neither does this vape boasts of ostentatious or gaudy features nor does it have too many bells and whistles that you need to learn before you can start using the device.

The construction is as simple as it can get which you can figure out as the vape has very few components or parts. First-time or new users find the minimalism of the vaporizer quite convenient as it lets them commence vaping without confronting too many issues. You first detach the removable mouthpiece.

Next, stuff in the dry herbs or pollen blends inside the compartment. However, ensure that you do not fill the chamber up to the brim. Leaving some vacant room causes the herbs to vaporize optimally, eventually letting you inhale the best grade of vapors. Once you’re through with loading the herb minces, put back the mouthpiece.

Now, depress the power knob five times in quick succession that will activate the APX V2. If you do not select a temperature, the vape will go on heating till it attains the last set temperature or default temperature. If you wish to set the vaporizer to a higher or lower temperature, you’ll have to hold down the button mildly for exactly 3 seconds when the LED light will light up at distinct markings.

Once the light flickers at your desired temperature, let go of your hold. For taking in the vapors, press and hold the power button, and inhale via the mouthpiece.

Convenience of Ease

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that the APX V2 is unprecedentedly easy to operate. There is just one knob on one of the sides which when pressed, switches on the vape.

Battery

Both Pulsar APX V1 and V2 carry the same standardized 1600 mAh lithium-ion battery. It takes approximately 1 and a half hour for the battery to become fully charged. You can vape for about 30-45 minutes before the charge drains away fully. So, the battery is not heavy-duty, but you could not have squeezed in a more hardwearing batteryinside this small vape.

Maintaining and cleaning the Pulsar APX V2

Cleaning and maintaining the APX V2 is not an issue at all. You can use a clean rag of cotton for getting rid of herb deposits. Alternatively, you can soak the cloth in warm water or isopropyl alcohol and squeeze it thoroughly for cleansing the interiors of the vape.

Never use extremely hot or boiling water for cleaning the Pulsar APX V2.

If you’re looking for an efficient vaporizer that is supremely portable as well as pocket-friendly, then you can opt for the APX V2.

To say the last but not the least, you can take pleasure in extended vaping sessions as the robust Li-ion battery lets you vape for 30-45 minutes at a stretch when fully charged.
