Pulsar APX Vaporizer Review
This is the Pulsar APX portable dry herb vaporizer and it’s currently the cheapest herbal vape I recommend at only $60.
I’m actually surprised by how much of a well-rounded package it is for the price, it’s a good value if you really don’t wanna spend a lot.
The build quality is not bad at all, they did a good job of making it feel like it costs a little more than it does. It’s 4″ tall (with mouthpiece) and only a little over 1″ wide, so it’s definitely a nice compact pocket-portable that’s smaller and lighter than most others.
Battery life isn’t terrible also, and it actually has five preset heat levels which is more than most cheap portable vapes, but I’ve found it does seem to run a little hot so even on the lowest temp it’ll roast your herb pretty good (but no burning).
Check out this clip of me taking a few draws from the APX:
Borrowing my friends apx untill i can order a dynavap. I think it works fine. But. It can be harsh and mouth piece gets really hot. Plus the battery sucks in my opinion. Constantly charging when im not using it. I use it on the lowest temp first sesh. Middle settings second sesh. I wont lie, its making my .5 a day limit last me twice as long as smoking. Im glad im converting over to vapes
When I was a first time vapor, I purchased the APX for $60 and used it daily for about one year without a problem (I only needed to repacked the charger after a year), but I did clean the screens and chamber with alcohol wipes after about every three uses. It did need to be charged after three uses also. I purchased a higher quality vaporizer, but still use my APX as a backup occasionally.
I purchased this vape 2days ago as I am a beginner vapor an with that price was decent… well I am not really liking it I set it in the middle temp backed it my way ( the right way) lol so ok good to go so I thought? I get hardly any clouds mouthpiece gets fairly hot an battery doesn’t last long at all so on all that said would u plz offer some of your wisdom my way Thx☮️
seems like u packed it too tight or loose?
i dont have one but if the heat isnt being transferred to the weed then it could disperse throughout the vape itself. idk
Sorry to wake an old thread, but my sister recently gave me this vaporizer because she didn’t like it. I’m finding the same thing, I barely get any cloud when I hit it. Definitely not anything like Bud is showing when he hits it in the video.
Did you figure out why? Is how we pack it the secret or something?
Try grinding to a very fine almost powder state.
When vaping, its best to have as little cloud as possable. The cloud indicates combustion. Combustion negates the benifits of vaporizors. Dial it down a bit if you do have a cloud. You can tell by the taste if its hitting or spent.
Mine works fine
I have a new app pulsar and it will not charge! I purchased it in the U S and can not take it back so I am out $60.00 us. Not impressed!
I would call Pulsar directly. It is supposed to have a 60 day warranty from the manufacturer
Do you have the problem that makes the user turn it on twice? Mine stays on for about 20 seconds the first time, then turns off. I turn it back on, and it stays on for as long as I need. Kinda weird.

Pulsar APX V2 Review
Kit & Accessories
- Pulsar APX V2
- Replacement mouthpiece insert
- Cleaning brush + packing tool
- USB charging cable
Compatibility: The Pulsar APX V2 is only compatible with dry herb. If you want wax compatibility, then try out the Pulsar APX Wax.
Design & Features
General Design: The APX V2 has a slim design that looks and feels a little like a cigarette lighter. It’s quite comfortable to hold and the power button is well-placed high up on the device, so it’s easy to access. Temperature selection is indicated by labels that light up when they are selected. This is a very useful design feature, especially when you consider that many sub-$100 weed vapes don’t label their preset temperatures as clearly. The loading procedure is fast and easy, and the APX V2 is pretty simple to use in general, just as you would expect from a budget vaporizer.
Portability: At just about four inches tall, and with a very slim profile, the APX V2 slips into pockets with ease. You could probably fit two or three in there and you—or anyone else—would barely notice. So, portability is definitely not an issue here.
Cleaning and Maintenance
This is a pretty low maintenance vaporizer, which means that cleaning is quick and easy. The included cleaning brush is all that you need to wipe out the chamber once a session is complete.
How to use
- Remove the mouthpiece to expose the herb chamber, fill it with herb, and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Hold down the power button for three seconds to cycle through the temperature settings and release it once it lands on the setting you want.
- Once the vaporizer has finished heating, inhale from the mouthpiece.

Temperature Settings: 356°F | 374°F | 392°F | 410°F | 428°F
Performance & Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: The APX V2 heats up in about thirty seconds, which is pretty good for a vaporizer of this size.
Vapor Quality: At the lower temperature settings, the vapor quality is good, not amazing, but not terrible either. However, at higher settings, the vapor tends to get hot, harsh, and uncomfortable. That’s because the short mouthpiece is located right above the herb chamber, so the vapor doesn’t have the time to get cool before it hits you. I would recommend that you stick to the lower temperature settings when using the APX V2. Draw resistance is pretty low, so the vaping experience feels nice and smooth.
Battery Performance: The APX V2 has a 1600 mAh battery that lasts for ninety minutes and charges up in ninety minutes. Both those numbers are pretty good for a budget vaporizer. Or any vaporizer really.
Pulsar APX V2 is a pretty solid and affordable weed vaporizer that’s a good choice for newbie vapers. Learn more about it in the review.
