Pulsar APX Wax Review: Breakdown
The manufacturing quality of the Pulsar APX Wax is extremely good, especially when you factor in the price. The aluminum exterior is a very nice touch, and it definitely makes it seem more durable. On that note, everything on the exterior of the unit seems well-machined, and I really have no complaints at all about how it was made.
The heating chamber is also well done, with the most interesting part being that Pulsar chose to build the atomizer with three quartz rods and coils. The entire chamber is actually made of quartz, which is typically considered the best way to maintain a pure flavor, though ceramic tends to do a good job too. Either way, Pulsar seems to have done their homework and built a very good vaporizer.
In the last section I mentioned that there are 3 rods in the atomizer of the APX Wax. This is notable because most concentrate vapes like the KandyPens Galaxy only ever have two rods, and the extra one helps deliver additional power. This means that the vapor that the APX is able to put out is more dense and stronger than most units are capable of, despite the smaller size of this unit. Like I said at the beginning, this is definitely not an underpowered device.
While you can rely on strong vapor and thick clouds, I found that these came at the expense of flavor. I’m not saying that the flavor was bad, but it also wasn’t the priority. You can’t adjust the temperature or voltage at all, so you’re basically stuck at the default settings. To be clear, the flavor isn’t bad, it just seems to lack some of the subtle notes that some waxes are meant to deliver.
Look and Feel
If I had to pick one word to describe the appearance of the APX Wax, it would definitely be tiny. Its size is the most remarkable thing about how it looks, though Pulsar does provide several color and design options. As I was saying earlier, the exterior is made from aluminum and that does a lot to help make this thing feel well-made and durable.
Here’s a category that this vaporizer really excels in! When it comes to being discreet, the absolute number one thing you want is something small. You’re not going to find anything that beats the APX Wax on that front, as the overall measurements are just 3.5” tall and 1.5” wide. If you want something that you can easily hide in the palm of your hand, this would be a very good option.
The only real problem on this front is that you can’t turn down the power settings. Dense vapor can be a double-edged sword if you are in a situation where thick clouds aren’t desirable. You can combat this by taking shorter draws.
Ease of Use
Using the APX Wax is very straightforward if you have ever used any other concentrate vaporizers. There is only one button on the entire vape, and you just click it five times to turn it on. In order to engage the atomizer, you need to press and hold the button again and wait for the LED-lit logo to turn from red to green. When it does, the unit has fully heated and you can begin your draw.
Thanks to the three rods and coils, I found that I went through wax a bit faster than usual. This may make it harder to use with multiple people, as you’ll likely have to reload a bit more than you are used to.
Again, the small size of this device makes it very portable. You can carry it pretty much anywhere without even realizing that you have it on you. The battery life is pretty average, as it is equipped with a 1100mAh battery. You can expect a couple days of use between each charge, and it seems to take about 1.5 hours to fully charge.
In my opinion, the Pulsar APX Wax Vaporizer is a very good deal, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple introductory device for concentrates. The temperature limitations and lack of atomizer options may seem restrictive to more experienced users, though it would still make an awesome backup unit for use while out and about.
My favourite features are definitely the overall size and the build quality. This thing also delivers surprising vapor strength, and actually out delivers many bigger units as far as vapor density goes. Whether you are looking for a go-to unit or a backup, this deserves consideration if you’re in the market for a new vaporizer.
