The Pax 2, Pusher, and Vented Oven Lid
The Pax 2, Pusher, and Vented Oven Lid

Recently, I reviewed the Pax 2 here on VaporBlog and concluded that it offers great improvements over the first generation Pax, loving how its a sleek yet discreet vape. Although the Pax 2 is a great vaporizer, it does have a few small areas which could benefit from some improvement. In this guide I’ll be reviewing two of my favorite products, the Pax Pusher and Vented Oven lid from NewVape who manufactures a series of accessories designed to improve your Pax vaporization experience.

Since the Pax 2 performs best when the bowl is packed fairly tight, light vapers who find themselves wanting to vape half a bowl or less may find themselves in a bit of a pickle, but fortunately this is exactly what the Pax Pusher aims to solve. Manufactured in the USA from medical grade stainless steel, the Pax Pusher is a small accessory which fits inside your Pax 2 bowl and acts as a spacer so that you can efficiently vape less than half a bowl. Using the Pusher is super easy, simply adjust the amount of spacing (via the small knob on the bottom) and then insert the Pusher (flat side first) into your Pax 2’s heat chamber. However, one thing to be careful of while using the Pusher is that adjustment screw can separate from the Pusher when fully unscrewed, so be careful not loosen it too much! Moreover, I recommend cleaning your Pusher from time to time by using a cloth and some rubbing alcohol.

The second issue I have with the Pax 2 is that I find the draw to be a little tight, even when using finely ground bud. Fortunately, NewVape’s Vented Oven Lid eliminates this problem. With 25 small holes designed to improve airflow (the stock Pax 2 oven has none), using this lid makes taking bigger and better hits much easier. Closely resembling the official Pax 2 oven lid in design (slightly less thick however), the Vented Oven Lid fits perfectly outside the Pax 2’s oven chamber and sits flush. After spending some time testing out both the vented and stock lids, I can definitely say that the vented oven lid makes it much easier to take puffs (as well as bigger ones) compared to the standard lid. Aside from benefiting the average user, I also feel that the vented oven lid makes it much easier for medical marijuana patients to take in greater amounts of medication without having to inhale too hard.

Overall, the Pax 2 is a great portable, and when combined with the Pusher and Vented Oven Lid you puff easier and conserve your cannabis at the same time! Both products are well designed and will last a long time with proper care. Although both of these accessories are for the Pax 2, NewVape also offers variants for the original Pax as well.

  1. When you say, “the Vented Oven Lid fits perfectly outside the Pax 2’s oven chamber and sits flush.” are you referring to the top cover/mouthpiece or the bottom oven lid?

    1. I haven’t noticed any increase in smell my experience as the warm vapor tends to drift upwards through the stem rather than out through the bottom of the vented lid. However, using strong cannabis will generally result in a smell either way, so make sure to keep that in mind when having a vape session.

      Always glad to help!

  2. I find the shortcomings of the New Vape oven lid outweigh its single advantage (increased draw):

    1. NV lid is dimensioned too shallow. Its 1mm reduced depth leads to tar and flower build-up around the edge of the oven. Because of the shallowness, its inner fit into the oven frame is wiggly and not solid. Maybe constructing the lid from two pieces (as on PAX 2) was too costly for NV?

    2. NV lid is finished around the rim with too much of a bevel, leaving an ugly gap with the PAX 2’s frame, unlike the immensely beautiful esthetic of the original, which is virtually flush, with but the tiniest of gap showing between lid and frame.

    3. Considering the hefty price of the NV aftermarket piece ($26 shipped), I find the level of craftsmanship, fit and finish disappointing. In my opinion, if you set out to selling aftermarket parts for the Rolls Royce of vaporizers, you should match its quality in every respect.

    NV, presented with this information, including close-up photos, was dismissive of any criticism, and responded with ” Part is Accurate Measurements” [sic].

    I will look elsewhere for an accessory with PAX 2-level of quality

  3. Ouch. I just ordered a vented lid for my pax. I hope I don’t observe the same shortcomings as exposed above. Should have read this before placing an order. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that Jay (above) may have received a defective product.

  4. I love my pax 2, but one issue is the lid can fall off as it has and I lost one already. Does your aftermarket lid come with a stronger magnet as well as added holes? Thanks!
