PAX Era vs. G Pen Gio: Which Portable Vape Should You Buy?

PAX Era vs. G Pen Gio: Which Portable Vape Should You Buy?

If you get a PAX Era vaporizer or the G Pen Gio from Grenco Science? I used each of these vapes frequently over the summer, and if you’re wondering which one comes out on top, a better question you should be asking yourself is, “Which one is right for me? ”

The gap between these proprietary, design-forward, same-priced (~$30) vapes feels charmingly aligned to the California cities from where each one hails. The PAX Era is a high-tech, high-achiever, with a slick, featherweight, USB-shaped proprietary, design & ldquo; pod & rdquo; capsules, and Bluetooth capabilities for temperature and session control. Solving pain points with technologies? How very SF.

The G Pen “Gio,” from the good people at Grenco Science, was born in Los Angeles, has an ergonomic hourglass shape much appreciated by my thumb and forefinger grip, offers a satisfying heft in contrast to Era’s light battery, and produces a lush, showy vapor cloud. It’s got a curvy flashy LA vibe.

In each country where both PAX & rsquo; re available, they and Grenco Science work to guarantee you’re getting oil for their respective proprietary systems. Here in Washington state, I keep Heylo in my Era and Oleum Labs from the Gio. (Locate a full listing of partners in each state at the bottom of the article.)

The Era is built for customization and control. There’s a temperature slider on the app that goes from mid-400 degrees providing you with big terpene flavor in the low end, and a vapor cloud at higher temps. “Sec control” enables you to pick a hit size from microdose to big, and it dispenses that amount each time you puff until you either change the setting or remove the pod.

Benefits of the PAX Era:

  • It hits however you’d like
  • Dosing is easy, offering a secure, predictable session each time you use it
  • You don’t have to mess with your Era’s settings to use it (maybe you’ll never link it to Bluetooth, and that’s okay)

Bottom Line: If control and specificity are important to you as a customer, the Pax ERA is an unparalleled choice.

The Gio is a seamless, experience that is breath-activated –you pick it up and puff. The optimal-temp science retains terpenes intact so you get beautifully clear taste notes, and a voluminous vapor cloud, every time. (I can confirm I hit the ever-loving shit out of my Gio and the cartridge apparently never ran out.)

Benefits of the Gio:

  • The science behind it calibrates warmth to optimum temp, using an innovative wicking system to control oil usage
  • It offers a rich, velvety-smooth hit
  • Gio’s design makes the curves and weight feel great in your hand

Bottom Line: If you enjoy the heightened sensorial experience of a gorgeously smooth inhale and a plush vapor exhale, the Gio is a beautiful pick.

(Pro-tip: When there’s a sticker on your cart, look at peeling it off until you add it into the Gio. I know that goes against the purpose of the tag, but otherwise the cart can get sticky if the tag is intact.)
