XMAX Starry V3 Vaporizer Review: 2021


The XMAX Starry V3 is king of the more affordable vape realm, showcasing a number of premium features all in one small package.



  • Cost effective
  • Compact
  • Dry herb and concentrates


  • NotLess potent than super high-end vaporizers


XMAX has gained a reputation for producing high quality vaporizers with a reasonable price tag. Like its predecessors, the XMAX Starry V3 produces powerful clouds of vapor from a ceramic conduction oven.

Top Vape on a Budget

The XMAX Starry V3 is the best dry herb vaporizer under $100 and its performance is well worth the investment. With features including a wide temperature range, replaceable batteries, an impressive digital display and a zirconia mouthpiece you can’t go wrong.

In fact, there are some high end vapes that don’t even offer these qualities. Additionally, you can benefit from an anodized aluminium body that offers maximum protection should someone accidentally drop the vape. 

Vaporlicious Clouds

The Starry V3 is designed so that your plant materials only touch the ceramic chamber and stainless steel airpath. Whether you’re vaping concentrates or dry bud, rest assured that your vapour will taste pure and packed with flavour. 

You can expect smooth, dense clouds from your new device at a fraction of the price you’d pay for some competitors. While most vaporizers under $100 produce only wisps of mist, the Starry V3 is the exception.

User Friendly Design

One of the coolest features of the Starry V3 is it’s magnetic lid that can be removed in mere seconds for easy loading. This is far more convenient than unscrewing a lid, and it makes for easier cleaning too. The Starry V3 comes complete with a specialized concentrate pad which can be used for oils or wax.

The device is among the most intuitive on the market and features haptic feedback (it vibrates when the temperature is ready) an improvement on previous models. The digital display takes the guesswork out of assessing temperature and battery life.

Cute Design: Ultra-Compact and Discreet

Measuring only 11cm and weighing no more than 120 grams, the XMAX Starry V3 is the epitome of dynamite in small packages. There are so many benefits to a pocket-sized vape, discretion being one of them. This highly portable device can be taken everywhere you go, and as it’s barely bigger than a lighter, this includes restrooms everywhere. 

Simply burn your bud at a low temperature to inhale invisible vapor and stay at the top of your game. What’s more is that the overall look of the unit is incredibly aesthetically pleasing. The sleek contours of the Starry V3 are both gorgeous and comfortable to hold in your hand. 

Ceramic Conduction Oven Heating Chamber and Speedy Heat-Up Time

The XMAX Starry V3 features a ceramic conduction oven that heats up your herb evenly all round in only 25 – 35 seconds. The time varies depending on your exact temperature selection, but the device is perfect for using on the go, or in situations where time just isn’t on your side. 

The insulated chamber ensures that heat is retained which serves to enhance the consistency of cloud vapour as well as the flavour. Furthermore, no matter how high you raise the temperature, rest assured that your bud will never combust.

Swappable Battery

The 18650 rechargeable battery holds around 2600 mAh which is equal to around 80 minutes of solid draw time. The battery takes around the same time to charge up, but the benefit of the Starry V3 is that it’s batteries are replaceable. Simply carry around an extra battery for long outings or events where you might vape more than usual.
