XMAX V3 Pro Tips and Tricks

We’ve got a few pointers that you’ll want to implement into your XMAX V3 Pro sessions. Let’s get into it.

If you want to get the most out of your XMAX V3 Pro, you’re in the right place. We’ve come up with a few tips, tricks, and pointers that we think you’ll want to implement into your sessions. Let’s get into it.

Pack it full with a gentle tamp

The XMAX V3 Pro utilizes a full convection oven, which means it uses the air to transfer the heat to your herbs. When you pack your V3 Pro, fill it to the top with ground herbs, and give it a soft, gentle tamp. Don’t overfill it or it will scorch and cook unevenly. Pack it too lightly and you’ll get little to no vapor production.

Long draws for big hits

For the fattest hits, start your draw off slowly for a couple seconds, and then ramp it up once it starts to thicken. Longer pulls produce the thickest clouds. A four second draw is enough, but it really ramps up after about seven seconds. Start slow for a couple seconds, pull stronger for a couple more, and once you feel the heat, hit it hard.

Cover the air intake for thicker hits

The two air intakes, located on the left and right side of the V3 Pro, provide a comfortable yet effective draw resistance. The V3 Pro’s convection style heater is flexible and will ramp up the vapor when you restrict the airflow a bit.

Cover one or both air intakes on either side for thicker hits.

Cover up one or both intakes and take a nice, slow draw to really milk your herbs. This is a great method to squeeze every last bit out at the end of a session. Play around with it and find what works best for you.

Use On-Demand mode for microdoses

Can you microdose with the V3 Pro? Yes you can! Instead of packing with a small sliver of herb, give it a full pack, like normal, and set it to on demand mode. Take as little or as much as you want in a single hit, call it a day, and come back to it later.

Use session mode for the best battery life

If you want the best battery life, use session mode. In our tests, Session mode lasted 50% longer than On-Demand mode. On-Demand can limit the time under fire, but adds extra stress on the battery every time it fires up from cold.

Be aware of the on-demand timer

On-Demand mode will time out 30 seconds after you engage the heater, and depending on the set temp, can take anywhere from five to fifteen seconds to reach temperature. As your battery drains, the heat up time will take longer and shorten the time you have to draw. When this happens, engage the heater immediately after it times out and jump right back into your hit.
