What is the Pulsar APX Vape V3 Dry Herb Vaporizer?

The APX Vape V3 is one of the best, and least expensive dry herb vaporizers available today. This reliable vape is both reliable and functional and is a great choice for newbies and seasoned vapers.

It boasts an improved design and comes with an array of innovative features, some only found in much higher-priced models in its segment.

The cash feature is one of the noteworthy features of the Pulsar APX Vape V3 that makes it stand out from the crowd and allows you to take quick hits of the last of your herb.

The Pulsar APX Vape V3 is available in a choice of 8 great colors, and measures a compact 31mm x 23mm x 101mm, making it easy to fit in your pocket.

The front of the APX Vape V3 neatly houses the buttons, which include the power button, cash mode, temperature LED indicators, and a status level LED indicator.

The APX Vape V3 is equipped with a heat resistance mouthpiece, and a metal stir tool that’s tucked away neatly in its base, which you can use to stir and mix your herbs while vaping to ensure even and complete vaporization.

Adding to this, it comes with a larger 0.5-gram ceramic heating chamber that allows you to hold 60 percent more material than its predecessor.


When it comes to battery power, the APX Vape V3 by Pulsar doesn’t disappoint with its robust 1600 mAh battery.

When charged fully, the Pulsar APX Vape V3 dry herb vaporizer can be used for roughly an hour and a half depending on use.

When the battery level is really low, the APX logo will flash before the red and green colors three times, before turning the device off.

The Pulsar APX Vape V3 does come with a USB charging cord, but not with a USB AC wall adapter—something you probably already have in your home.

It returns to the last set temperature by default, which you can change by pressing, and holding down the power button for three seconds, and then selecting the desired temperature.

Speaking of temperatures, the Pulsar APX Vape V3 comes with Cash Mode—a specially tuned temperature setting that allows you to quickly clear or cash a chamber.

This feature is perfect to ensure that the herb loaded in your chamber is spent, or for those times you’re in a hurry!
