About this deal

I also recommend temp-stepping your sessions. Temp Stepping is when you start the session at a certain temperature, say 360F, then as the session goes on and you take a couple of draws, increase the temp by 10-20 degrees and take a few more draws. Continue this method until the vapor is wispy and loses flavor. The finished flower will look brown to dark brown in color. The XMAX V3 Pro Vaporizer is an upgraded version of the popular and successful XMAX V2 Pro. The V2 Pro sat at the top of our “best cheap vaporizer” section in our best dry herb vaporizer guide for the better part of 5 years, and we now have an upgraded version featuring hybrid on-demand heating, a replaceable battery system, and USB-C charging. The Starry vaporizer is about the same size as the Pax 2. Maybe a smidgen wider but very close. The Starry weighs roughly 120 grams with the battery in which is about 30 grams more than the Pax 2. Overall vapor quality is about average for a conduction portable vaporizer in this price range, and it’s a close match to the POTV One ( read review) but it’s not quite as good as the Davinci IQC ( read review), which features a bottom-mounted chamber and longer vapor path, which helps cool vapor quite a bit more.

Our full maintenance guide can help with the deep cleaning, but you can keep those to a minimum by cleaning out the oven right after use. After it’s cooled down for a minute, brush any remaining particles from the oven and mouthpiece screen. On the display, you’ll find the current battery charge, session timer, target temperature (small), and actual temperature (large), plus the heating icon. You can hold the power and minus buttons for a few seconds to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit, or the power and plus buttons to switch between five and ten minutes for the auto-shutoff timer. The Session Timer can be set to 4 or 6 minutes. By default, it’s set to 4 minutes. Hold the power button and top temp button simultaneously for two seconds to change it. You can also restart the session when the timer ends.


You can now remove the remaining silicone housing and the mouthpiece itself from the top. Clean the silicone housing with warm soapy water and place the mouthpiece and remaining zirconia housing into the ISO dish. I would imagine XMAX suggests cleaning it all with ISO, but I’m not a fan of using ISO on any silicone. You can change temperatures via the two smaller buttons below the power button. There’s no temp indicator as to which is + or -, but I think you can figure out which one increases temp and decreases it. The full temp range runs from 212-428F (100-220C), and I recommend starting around 370ish, temp stepping with each draw.

To turn on the Starry, hold the power button for three seconds.The two smaller buttons adjust the temperature up and down, and it will immediately start heating up to the last temperature. The coffee cup icon will blink while it heats up, and turns solid when it’s time to vape.Now that we’ve gone over the details of on-demand and session mode, we can jump into the basics of operation. I always know when I like the feel of a portable vape when I find myself fiddling with it while using it, and I can’t stop playing with the Starry. The Starry 4 added roughly 20 grams of weight (Roughly 138g vs 122g on the previous Starry 3 model).

Considering its price tag and size, Starry surprisingly produces nice clouds and flavor. Vapor quality-wise, however, is not at the same level as some top vaporizers we’ve seen such as the Crafty+ and Mighty ( Review), or even Uttilian 722 ( Review), which is somewhere in the middle.

What's in the box

Overall, the XMAX V3 Pro vaporizer features pretty good battery life for the size, all while being replaceable and charging via 5V/1A USB-C charging. When the V3 Pro is in on-demand mode, you can power it on, and it will remain on standby until you press and hold down the power button. On-Demand Mode requires you to press the power button for the entirety of the draw. You can hold down the power button for 30 seconds in on-demand mode, and the device will vibrate three times when you initially reach temp. After 30 seconds, the device will stop heating, but you can release the power button and press it again to start the cycle over.
