XMAX Starry V3 Review

Xvape’s XMAX Starry 3.0 is a dual-use vaporizer designed for the budget vaper with high expectations. Xvape is proud to offer a high level of quality, without the high cost. Their USA-made portable vaporizers strike the delicate balance between purity and price, offering every Xvape customer affordable leading technology. Read on to learn more about the XMAX Starry 3.0 and how it might fit your vape budget.

Starry V3 Features

Xvape, one of the leading manufacturers of vapes, proudly manufactures all of their products in the US. Their team was founded almost ten years ago and has been working to improve vape technology while lowering industry prices ever since. The first generation Starry portable, dual-use vaporizer was released a few years ago and named one of the best herbal vapes under $100. Version 3.0 only builds upon this highly regarded device, offering better vapor production, haptic feedback and an upgraded zirconia mouthpiece. You can also pick up a Water Pipe Adaptor and Glass Bubbler to upgrade the Starry experience.

So what makes the XMAX Starry 3.0 something to talk about?

To start off, the Starry 3.0 features precise temperature control for vaping either dry herb or concentrated cannabis. The vape can be set between 212 degrees to 464 degrees Fahrenheit and heats to max temperature in just 35 seconds. The digital OLED screen and button controls make it easy to set this device to temperature and view the battery level. You can also set dual cycle times to adjust your session to fit the consistency of your favorite herbs or concentrates.

The conversation can continue as we point out that the Starry 3.0 utilizes a conduction heating method in a ceramic heating oven. The oven features an oval funnel shape at the top so that loading ground herb is easy. The device uses conduction heating efficiently to create great vapor production. It can hold a max capacity of 0.3 grams, but that is more than enough for a good session.

We can then continue to talk about one of our favorite features — the removable battery. This portable vape device is powered by a single 1860 battery, which you can remove, recharge, and replace with ease. The average battery life is still impressive, at 80 minutes of run time. But the ability to swap out a dead battery for a fresh one is ideal for any all-day vape user.

However, we can’t end the conversation there because this portable vaporizer is also easy to use! The Starry 3.0 just makes sense. It offers advanced features controlled by three simple buttons. You press and hold the power button for three seconds to turn it on, and the device will vibrate when it is heated to temperature and ready to vape. Loading is made easy with a beveled chamber and magnetic mouthpiece that can attach to the side of the device when removed. Cleaning is also made simple with the use of an alcohol-soaked cotton swab to wipe out the oven chamber between uses. The removable mouthpiece can be soaked in soap and warm water to clean away any resin and keep your vapor tasting pure.

Starry V3 Style

The only decision you have to make when considering purchasing a Starry 3.0 is whether you want it in black or grey — or one of both — at a starting price of just $99. This sleek, handheld device is wrapped in an anodized aluminum shell, giving it a sophisticated and discreet look. Similar vape devices can cost over $200, so the Starry 3.0 is a steal for anyone looking for a bargain.

Here’s everything included with a new XMAX Starry 3.0 Vaporizer:

Starry V3 Vaping Experience

In our honest opinion, the ideal Starry 3.0 vaping experience is a quick, discrete session on the go. Battery life is nothing to worry about, especially since you can always bring a spare battery along for the ride. You also have the choice of easily switching between flower and concentrates, with dual-cycle settings fitting either preference throughout the day. It can heat to 390 degrees Fahrenheit in 25 seconds, alert you when it is ready, and be easily pocketed after use. Your precious herb or concentrate only comes in contact with ceramic and stainless steel before it’s transformed into pure vapor. The XMAX Starry 3.0 proves to be durable and reliable, even at a deal of a price.

When combing through customer reviews, there is the general consensus that the Starry 3.0 vape offers great value. However, it is subject to the same issues many small vaporizers suffer from. The mouthpiece can become warm when constantly running at high temperatures. The vapor production also does not hold up to the production of more expensive handheld vaporizers, such as the Crafty+ or Mighty. If you are a daily vape user who is looking for the best experience out there, you might want to look further than the Starry 3.0. However, if you are looking for a quality, portable vaporizer at a fair price then stop reading, go to your local head shop, and buy one today. You won’t find another handheld vape with as many advanced features, at such a fair price. It’s also a great option as a back-up or travel vape if you’re looking to expand your staple vaporizer collection.

Xvape has a track record of producing good devices at great prices — and the XMAX Starry 3.0 is no exception.
