The original Pulsar APX was a great, affordable weed vape and the new version is even better. The reason is that it has a new and improved interface that is much easier to understand. The APX V2 also retains all of the positive qualities of the original, like the good vapor quality, simple loading procedure, and high portability. However, it is the affordability of the APX V2 that makes it so appealing to beginners and vaping veterans alike.

Pulsar APX Review
Pulsar APX Background
The Pulsar APX V2 is an upgrade to the original Pulsar APX, which could vape dry herb, wax extracts, and THC/CBD oil. This one only vapes dry herb, so surely that’s a downgrade, right? Hold your horses there, reader, the APX is actually simplifying things by sticking with dry herb, especially since that’s what the original was best at vaping. So, it’s less of a downgrade and more of a specialization.
The APX improves the user interface while still retaining the original’s impressive portability. So, now you know how it compares to the original, how is it in its own right? That’s why you’re reading my Pulsar APX review is here to tell you, so keep reading.
You can get it from Vape-Smart for $70, remember that coupon code TVG10 gets you a 10% discount.

How it is Designed
At just four inches tall, the APX is one of the more travel-friendly weed vapes available, it is only slightly larger than a cigarette lighter, so it’s possible to fit one, or two, or even three of them in your pocket. I don’t know why you would have three of them, or need to carry them all at once if you do, I’m just saying that it’s possible is all.
Even though the APX is more of a budget weed vape, it has some nice features, namely a pretty solid user interface. There are five temperatures to choose from—356°F | 374°F | 392°F | 410°F | 428°F—and each of them is marked on the back of the device. When one is selected, it lights up, which makes temp selection simple and clear.
The APX has a single, nice, clicky, rubber button to control all of its functions, and it is easily accessible. Filling the APX is simple because you just have to snap off the easily removable mouthpiece to expose the herb chamber, fill it up, and replace the mouthpiece. Easy peasy. Overall, the APX is a very user-friendly vaporizer.
How it Functions
Vapor: This is a budget vaporizer, so you shouldn’t expect vapor quality that can match more expensive vapes, that being said, the flavor produced by the APX isn’t bad. In fact, I’d say that it’s above average for this price range.
However, there is a drawback that you should know about, the vapor can get a little hot at the higher temps. That is because the short mouthpiece is located right above the herb chamber, so the vapor doesn’t have time to cool down. I suggest staying at the lower temperature settings to prevent heat build-up, those lower settings provide the best flavor, so that’s just extra incentive.
Battery: Battery life is good for such a small vape, the 1600 mAh battery lasts for ninety minutes and charges up in ninety minutes. That makes it a pretty convenient vape to have on hand.
The Last Word
The Pulsar APX is a solid, inexpensive vape, that won’t trouble any of the best dry herb vaporizers, but will serve quite nicely as a starter, or a backup, vaporizer. That’s because its convenience, portability, and ease of use make it handy to have around whenever you need a quick dose of THC.
You can take the APX pretty much anywhere, and have it loaded up and ready to go in no time. Charging is quick and it lasts long enough for a few sessions. Anyone who is just getting into vaping, or who needs a more portable, secondary vaporizer would be wise to check out the Pulsar APX.
