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!
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.

I use my new vape for short personal sessions and it works great. Took a bit to get used to compared to a pipe but I won't go back now. So easy to use and since I don't have long sessions I don't need to clean very often. No clogs here. I barely pack down my herb. Much better on the lungs too. Only negative is that I can still smell my herb when it's in the (free) vacuum pack carrier. Also free grinder works great!
Best company ever!
I am so happy I purchased with PotV. My vape is perfect and it works well. The companies support team is great and is always helpful when answering questions. I recommend PotV to everyone.
Meh. Not for me..
I think vaporizing may just not be for me, who knows. The piece gets pretty warm in your hand with one timeout.. I feel like the pull is just okay and I’m going through more green really quickly so it doesn’t seem efficient. Decided to return and was charged $10 USPS shipping return, which is a bummer. Decided to keep the grinder - it’s excellent.
Hi Diana, I see that we are processing a refund for you now. In regards to making the transition from smoking to vaping, it's really important just to vaporize and not smoke at all for about 2.5 weeks. You need to wean yourself off of the toxins such as benzine and carbon monoxide that is produced by burning plant material. The reason why you need to do this is because those toxins create some of the affects that you got when you smoked, but please know this. Over 90% of the people that go through this transition will have no desire to go back to combustion again. I had to go through this myself. That was 9 years ago. Well worth the effort being that vaping is not only healthier for you but your herbs will taste better, smell less and last longer. In regards to the efficiency of the Starry, you should go through less herbs than when you combust. All vapes have their learning curves including your Starry and if you wish to go over some tips that would improve your experience with your Starry, just let us know in the refund ticket that we have open for you. With best regards, Larry
Ok, so this is the third vaporizer I've bought in the past year. This one and the Pax 3 were bought for other relatives who need CBD therapy. The first one I bought, the Crafty I compare to everything else. By the way, the Pax 3 and Xmax are more user friendly, lighter, heat up faster. On to the XMax review. It's a nice size, smallish and light, relatively. Easy to carry around if needed, I like the controls on the one side, very easy to change the temperature and on/off button, simplistic, just what I need. Good battery life, charged it once so far. Cleaning and loading is straightforward. Since I bought this for someone else who knows nothing about vaping, I had to set it up, and become familiar with it before handing it off. The chamber, I set it to 185C for optimal CBD intake. That heat setting is what both other vaporizers are set at and it works great. I thought I had done that but the person said they felt nothing and got no relief from it. He tried it 4 days in a row and got nothing. That's a stark difference from what that does to me and others who have used the CBD product. I took it back and tried it myself. I also didn't feel much, almost nothing. I couldn't taste anything, and didn't seem to blow out anything. I had to progressively turn up the chamber heat until the desired effect was reached. This happened at about 200C. Not a big deal but something to take note of. I thought that could be from heat loss in and around the chamber, or the digital readout of not accurate. Once this heat setting was in place the unit is a pleasure to use.
Hello, I recently reached out to Planet of the Vapes via email regarding my purchase of the X Max Starry. I informed them of the troubles I was having with the vape and they sent some me some tips to try to get started. After trying their suggestions, it just still doesn't perform like I need it to. Can you please provide a phone number where I could reach someone and try to get help? Thank you.
Hi Brian, Will be calling you in the next 5 minutes. We'll get this squared away for you. With best regards, Larry
