As of January 2019, the X MAX Starry is on its third version. The updated model now includes haptic feedback to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature, an improved mouthpiece, and more. Check out the full breakdown of these changes over on our blog post announcing the X MAX Starry Version 3.
Who's the X MAX Starry for?
The X MAX 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.
POTV limited edition
We're big fans of the Starry and teamed up with X-MAX to re-work the style. All black with discreet CNC'd logos. The only difference is the styling.
The Starry vaporizer is powered by a single 18650 battery (included) that is removable so you can just swap it out and keep going all day, but you might not rush out to buy a spare since we got 80 minutes of run time off a single charge. You can’t ask for much more than great battery life and the option to swap in a fresh battery when needed! And we love removable batteries because you can just swap in a new one versus having to send your vaporizer in for warranty if your battery ever dies.
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 smidge 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.
X MAX has been producing quality vaporizers for the budget vape market for a while now and the Starry sticks to the script with a standard ceramic conduction oven that tastes good and works fast. Your herbs and vapor touch nothing but ceramic and stainless steel.
The Starry’s 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.
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.
There are a number of vapes in this price range, but the Starry really stands out. Featuring a pocketable size, great build quality, removable batteries, and a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece it has features that you won’t find in some of our favorite vapes at more than twice the price. It really is one of the best values in the vape market!
A note on cleaning
Only use a soft q-tip soaked in alcohol to clean the oven. The ceramic oven will never look as good as it did when it was brand new. Please just remove any resin buildup but don't try to remove the stains as this could damage the ceramic oven and void your warranty. The mouthpiece of the Starry should only be cleaned with warm water and mild dishwashing detergent.
The Starry vaporizer has a 1-year warranty when purchased from Planet of the Vapes and, as with all vaporizers purchased from us, you are also covered by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

XMax Starry V3
Great addition, in fact a friend liked it so much he ordered one.
Not worth it
Don’t waste your money on this, just buy a really nice piece instead. The vapor is not good and you can’t use it for more than a few minutes without burning your hand.
Hi Tony, With over 700 reviews, with most of them being over 5 stars, we feel very strongly that the Starry, at its price point, represents one of the best vaporizer values in the market. With that said though, you may have received a defective vaporizer or with a bit of a change-up in user technique, you may end up liking your Starry quite a bit. Creating a service ticket of you to discuss. With best regards, Larry
I like that I can vape at different temperatures for different effects. My herb lasts longer using the vape too. The mouth screen does seem to get clogged after only one or two tokes which is annoying but other then that I love it.
Hi Wendy, In regards to the mouthpiece getting clogged, try putting one of the extra oven screens that we sent you on top of your herbs. That should help. With best regards, Larry
Very handy and convenient!
Have had this for a couple of weeks now and am very happy with this purchase. Great flavor, nice clouds, easy to use, and feels fantastic in your hands. I'd recommend getting the adapter with it so you can use it with your water pipe when you want to mix things up.
This is my third dry-herb vape, and I can’t say enough about it. Good battery life; sweet taste; easy to clean. Plus, it comes with a replaceable battery, so when it finally kicks, I won’t have to get a whole other vape, just a new battery. That’s worth the price of admission alone.
