    Well, I decided to start using the vape today. I wasn't able to taste anything or smell anything with herb in chamber. Chamber was packed light and tight, good vapor. Compared to my Pax 2 I'm actually surprised that the vapor quality is smoother. I tested 370 f and 390 f. I do not think id ever go any hotter than that. Needless to say, I'm satisfied with the performance for the cost of the device.

    One thing I've noticed about the Starry is the parasitic power draw. Maybe this is common to weed vaporizers but if my Starry sits for 10 days or so unused, the battery is low enough to need charging. Depending on the battery, it'll be somewhere in the 3.5 to 3.7 v. area. Easy enough to plug it in once a week since I now know that or just remove the battery if I'm not using the unit regularly.

    All devices with "soft power" buttons have some quiescent current draw. But 10 days sounds way too fast to discharge a battery.

    My old vapes have been gathering dust for months if not a full year for some, and I check them from time to time and none has discharged fully so far (they were stored at 3/4 charge)

    I would try to contact the manufacturer and tell them about the issue.

    Well , just picked one of these up from #vapefiend .. wow, really impressed.. did a small load first, yep wispy vape, clean at 200, didn't think much was happening, and was quite disappointed to be honest, whilst walking the dog, then bang I'm just so wasted lol. Tried the resin capsule, with some blonde at 240, such clean vapor, no cough for once, really nice ;) . Didn't get chance to try a full bowl, I'm assuming this has potential to develop a lot more vapour when full? I'm using a volcano grinder, what is the best grind for this, fine , medium? Pack tight or loose? Still looking at a used IQ, or am I wasting my time?

    I found that a regular/Medium grind is best. I tried a fine grind, similar to what I would use in my MFLB and it wasn't a benefit. I also don't pack tight but I do tamp down lightly.

    Thanks, well I did use a volcano grinder, ehich I'm now assuming is too course? I've just ordered a slx grinder, which in theory will be the perfect grind , if I use it upside down for a few twists? My bowl was half empty, it looks like not having a full bowl, has a massive effect on vapour production? I'm curious on your temperature findings, I love ❤️ this vape, this best I've owned for some time.. roll on the weekend!

    @mrfunk - I fill the bowl with a light tamp down about 3/4 full and place a screen on top of the bowl to keep the contact with the mouth piece filter to a minimum because it's too easy to clog if the filter touches the weed. My two favorite temps are 390F and 410F. I start with 390 and temp step up to 410 when 390 stops producing visible vapor.

    I have used just a half filled bowl with the previously described temps and gotten good vapor production but I find the 3/4 fill to be my sweet spot. Evenly colored ABV and no stirring required.

    Does anyone know of any US retailers that are carrying the replacement mouthpieces for the Starry? I still don't see them available at PIU or PotV. Thanks!

    When you do find one, make sure to ask if it is one from the first batch or after they resized the oven, and know whether or not yours is a first run or later. When they resized the ovens the gaskets had to change, so the new gaskets are too big for the first run ovens.
