The Xvape Starry V3 vaporizer is one of the most affordable and convenient dry herb vaporizers, especially for when you need something on the go. The Starry fits in the palm of your hand, it won’t break the bank and its simplicity makes it beginner friendly.
With that in mind, you may need a guide to get your device up and vaping. This short article will cover everything you need to know about using your XVape Starry V3.
What’s in the box?
When you first unbox the Xvape Starry, you’ll find these materials inside:
- 1 x XMAX Starry vaporizer
- 1 x USB charging cable
- 1 x cleaning set (brush, tool, tweezers)
- 1 x metal mouthpiece screen

How to charge Xvape Starry V3’s battery
Before the first session, you’ll want to fully charge the Starry’s battery, which takes around four hours. Don’t worry though, once the first charge is complete, it will then only take around 90-120 minutes to reach full capacity - after which you can expect a 70-90 minute battery life in-between charges.
To charge the Xvape Starry vaporizer, you must plug the USB charging cable into the device’s USB port and then into any power source. When the battery indicator on the LED screen starts blinking, your Xvape Starry is ready to go.
Note: The 18650-battery powering your Xvape Starry is removable and replaceable. This means you also have the option of using an external charger to reach full charge even quicker. If you’re planning on using the Xvape Starry often, it might be useful to pick up an extra battery just in case.
How to operate the Xvape Starry
The Xvape Starry device features three buttons arranged around an LED screen. To power it up, simply hold the larger power button for three seconds and your Starry will come to life. To turn off your device, just hold the power button again for three seconds.
The two smaller buttons adjust the temperature. On the LED screen, you’ll see two temperature indicators: The tiny number is the target temperature, which you can set using the temperature control buttons. The larger number indicates the current temperature of the vape, which upon turning on, will rise to whichever temperature you have set.
While your device is heating, you’ll see a blinking coffee cup that will turn solid once it reaches the set temperature. The LED screen also displays your Xvape Starry’s auto-shutoff timer, which you can adjust from five to ten minutes. This is done by holding the power button and either of the temperature buttons until you see the auto-shutoff timer switch.
The first session
Upon opening your Starry, as with any vaporizer, it’s wise to run what’s known as a burn-off. This is because residue from the manufacturing and shipping process can find its way into your device and the only thing you really want to be vaping is your herb of choice!
To do this, simply turn the temperature to the highest setting (464ºF) and let your Xvape Starry burn until the auto-shutoff kicks in for you. After each burn-off session, check for any sort of funky smell. If need be, repeat this process until there’s no more smell.
Grind your herbs and load into the Xvape Starry’s Chamber
When grinding herbs for your Starry, we recommend using a finer consistency. If you’re working on a budget, using a regular grinder will do the job - just flip it over until you reach your ideal consistency. When that’s done, fill the chamber with your ground herbs and pack it down gently. The lid to the Starry is magnetic, so it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle to take off.
Set your ideal temperature
Using the temperature buttons, set the vape to your preferred heat. The Xvape Starry has a temperature range from 212-464°F, but we wouldn’t recommend going above 430ºF unless you’re really looking to cook your herbs.
Instead, starting out near 390ºF and gently raising the temperature is your best bet, especially if you’re just getting used to the Starry. Finally, as a general rule, lower temperatures yield the best taste, which is especially true during the first couple of rips.
When everything is packed and ready to go, all you have to do is swivel out the mouthpiece and enjoy! For the best experience, take a gentle draw, almost like you’re sipping fresh coffee. As your session draws to a close, you may have to raise the Starry’s temperature and stir your vaped herbs to get the last drops out.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleanup for the Xvape Starry is a straightforward process. When your session is finished, turn off the device by holding the power button for three seconds. Then, open the chamber and dump out the remains. After a couple of minutes when the chamber has cooled, brush out both the chamber and the lid.
After a while, you might notice build-up in the chamber, lid or mouthpiece. Full cleaning is a simple process as well. Using a Q-tip soaked with isopropyl alcohol, hold your Starry upside down, so nothing drips into the device and simply wipe the chamber clean. You can do the same with the lid and mouthpiece, or you can soak them. After everything is clean and dry, you’re good to go.
