XVAPE Starry 3.0 Portable Vaporizer
Dual Use Vaporizer – for both Botanicals and Concentrates.
The XVAPE STARRY 3.0 is arguably one of the best conduction vaporizers available for under $230 NZD. The Starry 3.0 features haptic feedback (like your mobile phone vibrate function), ceramic oven (for even heating of herb), precise temperature control (large range), an industrial strength magnetic mouth piece, and a removable 18650 battery (spares available in shop), all wrapped up in a sleek black or grey, anodized aluminum tough shell. Similar units from other manufacturers often cost $350 NZD or more! The XVAPE Starry 3.0 offers all of the features plus a few more at roughly half the cost of a Pax 3 for example. The Pax 3 is a better vape that has a Bluetooth App etc but it doesn't have a removable battery so when your battery dies so does your Pax, food for thought! If you like the Crafty+ design (swing mouthpiece) and/or the performance of a Pax (conduction heating = hot oven, compared to convection = hot air like a Firefly) you will love this affordable little conduction vape. Out of all the cheaper vapes for dry herb this one stands out, being conduction is the best part, that is why the Pax is such a great vape. See all of our conduction vapes here.

Who’s the Starry 3.0 for?
The XVAPE Starry is for anyone looking for a quality portable vaporizer at a great price. Full digital control, a pocketable size, swappable battery, haptic feedback, a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece and an anodized aluminum body. The Starry delivers features that we don’t see in vaporizers at twice the price. It really is one of the best value vapes in the market (world).
Well made & pocketable
Tired of the sea of plastic shell vapes on the market at this price point? This is where the Starry really stands apart with its anodized aluminum body, magnetic lid enclosure and ceramic zirconia mouthpiece. The size is right, too, coming in at just a smidgen bigger than the PAX 3.
Fast heat-up time
The Starry gets up to 390° F in just 25 seconds and to top temp in 35 seconds, perfect for a quick, discreet session.
The Starrys controls are simple and make sense with three buttons to control on/off, temperature, session timer and Celsius/Fahrenheit display. Turning it on is as simple as holding the power button in for three seconds. Plus, the Starry will buzz gently to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature just like your mobile phone.
Easy to load. Cool mouthpiece.
Loading is easy with its beveled oven ring and you won’t worry about losing the mouthpiece since it can magnetically stick to the side when open. The ceramic zirconia mouthpiece is strong and super smooth for a comfortable feel that preserves taste.

Starry 3.0 REVIEW
An Independent Starry V3.0 Vaporizer Review From one of our favorite US vape reviewers.
This should give you a good idea of what to expect with the Starry 3.0.
If looking for more info on the Starry 3.0 you will find plenty of sites and loads of images, just be aware that this vape has been branded by a couple of companies, we sell the XVAPE version but there is also the XMAX version, they are identical, the exact same vape with different brands on the outer shell and packaging. You will find lots of info if you search for XVAPE Starry V3.0 and XMAX Starry V3.0. This doesn't make it a cheap and nasty vape by any means, if anything it shows how 2 different vaporizer companies have adopted the Starry 3.0 because it's a great vape for a very reasonable price.
The Starry V3 dry herb vaporizer is about the same size of the Pax 2/3. 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. I’m comparing these two together because they function in a very similar fashion and are very similar design wise. The Pax 2/3 doesn’t come with a replaceable battery system.
The Starry is very easy to pocket, easy to grip and pass around. It’s perfect for the adventurous type whether you’re hiking, biking or just out and about like a night out on the town. It’s very easy to conceal and even palm if needed.
XVAPE Starry Accessories
The Starry will come with your usual cleaning tools, one replaceable rechargeable 18650 battery (no spare battery, just one), a USB charging cable, instruction manual and a few extra screens. I recommend picking up an extra battery and an external charger if you think you will be using the Starry often. The batteries will charge faster in the external charger and it’s always nice to have a spare just in case. (Helenskinz will be stocking external battery chargers soon). It's a huge bonus having a swappable battery, very few portables have this option, usually only the very top shelf vapes have this, like the new DaVinci IQ2 for example. Cases for this vape are available in our shop here, room for your vape, a spare battery and anything else you need. You can charge a battery in your vape, remove it and charge a second one but using an external relatively cheap 2 battery charger will be all you need for fast charging both batteries.
Heating Specs and Temp Options
I’m pretty impressed with the heat up times and temp options. Not only does the unit heat up in under 30 seconds but you get a full temp spectrum with on vape display and easy to use temp buttons. You very rarely find a vaporizer for this price with all these options, it's impressive.
The full temp spectrum runs from 221F to 464F. I never really go above 420 but the option is there to really cook your herbs if you wanted. The Starry features a 5 or 10 minute session timer which is user adjustable by holding the power and up buttons.
Battery Specs, Average Charging Times, Battery Life and Charging Options
The XVAPE Starry vaporizer uses a 2500MAH 18650 rechargeable replaceable battery. I’ve been averaging about 70-80 minutes of battery life on a single charge which is really good for the size of this device. Charging takes anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes with the included micro USB cable, but you can reduce the charging times with an external charger as mentioned above.
* We recommend using our DaVinci IQ 18650 batteries for this vape if you want a spare one.
Vapor Quality, Draw Resistance, Usage Tips
While The XVAPE Starry vaporizer does have better flavor than other conduction units at or below this price, it is still like most conduction vaporizers. Great taste at lower temps, especially on the first couple rips but as the temp goes up and the session goes on, the taste goes downhill. The good news is that the Starry vape will put out HUGE clouds on the higher temps. With a tight pack and a fine grind, you will be thoroughly impressed with the vapor output. The Starry will also vape very evenly with no need to stir.
The draw resistance is about average when clean but goes up when dirty. The biggest contributor to the draw resistance is the mouthpiece/screen. It tends to clog up after multiple sessions (like most vapes including the Pax) so it’s important to brush out the chamber and mouthpiece after every session. I also try not to leave herbs in the chamber after a session. When possible I Immediately dump the bowl to help keep down on cleaning.
XVAPE STARRY TIPS:
I recommend a fine grind. You can achieve a fine grind by picking up something like the Santa Cruz Shredder or SLX grinder.
I have gained the best results with a fully packed chamber. You really don't want to leave any void at all in any conduction vape. This is why the Pax 3 comes with a half pack oven lid, to fill the empty space/void.
Like I mentioned earlier, the lid and mouthpiece tend to get hot with prolonged use. When vaping a long endurance session you can use your hand or fingers to help dissipate the heat from the unit before a draw. Just place your fingers over the mouthpiece when you’re waiting for the next draw and it will cool it down. It's always much cooler at the very tip of the mouthpiece.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Overall the cleaning and maintenance is very easy with the XVAPE Starry especially if you stay on top of it and brush out the chamber and lid after every session. Like I said, the screen will collect the most debris so try to keep it clean for best results.
A full clean is easy. Just throw some ISO on a cotton bud, wipe out the chamber (with the unit upside down so nothing drips down into the unit), then wipe or soak the lid and mouthpiece and you’re good to go. The cheapest ISO Alcohol we have found is at JayCar Electronics, it comes in a large 250ml bottle for $11.90 NZD.
* See Cleaning Video above.
Summary: Who should buy the XVAPE Starry?
The XVAPE Starry is the perfect vaporizer for someone just entering the vape market. You don’t have to shell out a bunch of cash to get good results and the performance is really unmatched at this price point.
It’s easy to conceal, easy to use, and easy to maintain.
I recommend picking up the XVAPE Starry as it is the best bang for your buck dry herb vaporizer that I have had the pleasure to use and review.
