The concentrate insert is a precision CNC machined aluminum oven that works well with a variety of concentrate materials using PAX 3's conduction heating. Its unique design and aluminum construction provides faster heat transfer and ensures a mess-free experience no matter how you hold your device.
For best performance, we recommend using only 10 - 20 milligrams of material (about the size of a lentil) and setting the device to the Med-High or High-temperature settings. In general, you may find that your vapor is slightly richer than using loose-leaf.
Unlike other oil pens that utilize coil heaters and have a greater chance of overheating, the PAX 3 insert and its algorithm-controlled heating is much gentler and don't overheat your concentrate.
We recommend cleaning the concentrate insert after every use. Wait at least 15 minutes after use for the oven to completely cool down.
WARNING: Handling the concentrate insert before it has completely cooled down presents a burn risk.
Compared to the standard or Half Pack Oven Lid you'll find that the concentrate insert will sit slightly raised from the bottom of the device to make it easier to remove once you're finished with a session. Store the concentrate adaptor separately from the device.
Removing a stuck concentrate insert: warm up your device for no more than 3 seconds, then turn it off. Use a heat-safe implement (such as a wooden chopstick) to attempt to wiggle out your insert.
WARNING: Use caution as the concentrate insert gets very hot and presents a potential burn risk. Make sure to clean your insert thoroughly afterward.
