The Pulsar APX version 2 is an update to the Pulsar APX, with the most prominent transformation seen on the controlling interface. Featuring convection vaporizing method, the APX V2 utilizes ceramic heating chamber and vaporizes at the same 5 temperature of its predecessor. This version only works with herbal material and it vaporizes less than 30 seconds.

Pulsar APX Version 2 Review

Although there are many factors to consider when purchasing a vaporizer, value is always at the top of the list. That’s why the Pulsar APX V2 is one of the best vaporizers around- even though it comes in under the $100 mark. There’s just something to be said about a well-built device that won’t break your bank. Every measure of a vaporizer needs to take into account the overall value of the unit, and the APX V2 gets stellar reviews in all the right places. A newcomer will find this device to be perfect for their needs, while an expert will appreciate the simplicity and execution of a great design. Simply put, the APX V2 comes recommended as one of the best budget vapes around.

Refining a Classic
Long-time users of the Pulsar APX are probably wondering whether or not they need to drop their old unit for the new version. The answer is not immediately obvious. The 2nd version of the APX acts more like a refined version of the original, but there is value to be found with both devices. The APX V2 does provide haptic feedback alerts for when your device reaches top temperature and when it shuts off- a welcome change from the original. However, the OG APX did come with a tank for concentrates. Although, this may seem like a bigger advantage than it is. The APX V2 is much more focused on vaping dry herb and is able to provide a more solid experience for one material rather than divide its efforts between dry herb and concentrates.

Hot chamber
The APX V2 uses a sophisticated combination oven that utilizes both convection and conduction in a hybrid setup, providing the best of both worlds. Showcased by the exceptional 30 second heat-up time with the maximum temperature of 428°F.  The oven is built with the single user in mind, holding a condensed load of just 0.3 grams with 5 preset temperatures of 356°F, 374°F, 392°F, 410°F and 428°F to choose from.

Simplicity, Defined
One of the keys to the success of the APX V2 is the high level of simplicity in the design. You simply can’t do too much if you want to create a great budget vaporizer. That’s why the chamber capacity is smaller and the device is focused solely towards dry herb. Another innovation in simplicity for the V2 is the silicone screen that replaced the much more standard stainless steel version on the original Pulsar APX. This new screen system is removable and infinitely cleanable, keeping a new user from having to replace a finicky metal screen with regularity. Not only that, but the silicone screen keeps the mouthpiece from becoming too hot and burning the user, a common gripe with budget vaporizers.

Pretty, powerful and petite
Powered by 1600mAh battery that lasts for about an hour and a half of actual vaping time, the V2 has a new and improved button that feels much more reactive and long-lasting that its predecessor. The outside casing, in general, has been revamped giving the device a better finish and a sturdier protective layer. In general, the user interface is the most improved aspect of the APX V2.  Stands 4 inches tall with a slender width, it can fit in any pocket with ease and can even be customized to fit your style. The APX V2 comes in many shades, including: black, gold, blue, silver, skull, tie-dye, wood, and one model comes with an artistic rendering of the THC molecules.

Take a speedy look at the design of the new Pulsar APX V2. It’s hard to get a grasp on just how compact this device is unless you see it in someone’s actual hand. Pay close attention to the new and improved silicone screen.

How to use the Pulsar APX V2

All of the simplicity in the world couldn’t save a device if it wasn’t easy to use. Thankfully, the APX V2 gets top marks in this category, too. Here are the steps to operate the device:

  1. Remove the mouthpiece to reveal loading chamber/oven.
  2. Fill chamber with dry herbs loosely, leaving room for an easy vapor transfer.
  3. Press the power button 5 times to activate the vaporizer.
  4. Hold power button for 3 seconds to select appropriate temperature.
  5. Inhale and enjoy!

What’s in the Box?

  • 1x Pulsar APX V2 vaporizer
  • 1x Replacement mouthpiece screen
  • 1x Cleaning brush
  • 1x USB charging cable


The Pulsar APX V2 is a great budget option for those that are just starting out. I also like it as a backup vape for those that need that extra level of comfort. It doesn’t cost much and certainly gets the job done when called upon. It’s a decent improvement over its original, as well, making strides to improve while not completely reinventing the wheel. If you are looking for an inexpensive vaporizer, it’s not wise to have this device placed anywhere but on the shortest of short lists.
