What better recommendation than to buy a second of the same?

Yesterday my Starry died running 464F burning off an old mixture of kief, shatter, and various very old flower. It was a damn good high, though a bit grumpy and paranoid from the high Sativa content. That was yesterday, today is today. The lovely thing about the Starry is that everything tastes the same, so it is a great unit to cook up old shit. That is the lovely thing with the Starry; it can do anything.

Over the past year, the Starry has given me much joy. I've invested in a ceramic bong top, and a shitload of screens and other crap to rebuild the unit. I like the unit. It works OK, it has a it's quirks, but damn is it good at getting me high. Sometimes, that is the bottom line 'get high'. Screw taste, screw efficient, screw everything; reach for the Starry. This unit can do some serious damage.

When the Starry died, I shed a tear. This unit got me high. Period. Don't know what else to say, and I'm generally good with words.

This morning I ran to River City Vapes in Edmonton and picked up another. Canvape was about $5 cheaper; happy to pay $5 to support local businesses. I couldn't last more than day without the Starry. This unit has a place in my daily rotation.

Using the NEW Starry v3 to cook the same old mix, I learned something new. The Starry doesn't taste bad. I was wrong. Brand new out of the box, without a lot of burnt left-overs, the Starry v3 actually can cook flower without completely destroying the taste. A fresh brand new unit, tastes way different than a year old unit. Don't underestimate the Starry.

The old Starry lasted about a year, but it saw high temperatures, heat kills electronics. Lots to gripe about with clogging and replacement screens, but I have been happy with the Starry v3.

Yes we will consider your suggestions... I agree flavour to be the most important feature when it comes to vaporization and when I asked which topic peoples would prefer to see improved, they replied "Taste&Vaporpath"!! In another hand I have an IQC and I like it especially cause its smartpaths but didn't noticed so much taste differences...

I don't thing the ejector Ace feature to be made again, I personnaly dig it a lot but it doesn't seems to interest peoples so much. Agree about the built-in stirring tool.

Yes we will consider a similar WPA than pictured on the top of this page (magnetic full ceramic wpa which eliminates silicone in the vaporpath!).

About power/max temp, Starry and Ace already offer pretty higher T° than the competition does... Why did you said CBD flowers need so high T°? I know CBD needs slightly higher vaporization T° but I don't think we need to increase the max T°, with such T° vapor will taste like sh**, isn't it?

Not sure the Fog's hinges to be the solution, it was a cause of failure and we didn't kept it for the new Fog Pro... In another hand I agree magnets aren't a perfect solution.

Thank you for sharing, we will consider your feedback! Have fun!
wow, I haven't seen that ceramic bong adapter, looks nice. I think it didn't exist when I bought my first Starry🤔. That configuration works very well in the Aria and change the bad performance of its short native MP

The idea of the Ace ejector is very very good, it's simple and surprised me a lot when saw it at the first time. But after a couple of years using it I have to say that I am also happy of not seeing it again😅. The stirring tool is simple and eficient and helps you to pack the bowl too

I think the problem about temperatures is that the engineers always study about the tipical 'good vaporization temperatures tables'. Yes I know, the best temperature for vaporization is 180ºC and being over 210ºC is not good as S&B say. But its not the same the best vaporization temperature when you start the session and when you are finishing it. When you are at the end of a session with roasted low resin flower like comercial 0.2% THC Futura/Fedora, etc, you need a lot of power to extract all the rock&roll. I dont use vapes like Davinci or Pax because after being baked I always had to go with that ABV to the vapcap and finish it. I dont want to vaporize at 270º all my session but I like to have that temperature for the last puff and push the herb to the limit, or maybe take one last pyrolysis hit. In the Ace at 255º I dont have dark brown ABV with low quality herbs. But well, 255º is enough and is a higher temperature than the competition as you say, but is higher than the regulated competition and this is the reason because the most CBD users are changing to non regulated devices after some time I think

But I hate the most is that engineers telling me at what temperature I have to vaporize. I want to do with my herb what I want and not what the engineers tell me that they think is good. I prefer to have 270º in my vaporizer and dont need to use it better than not to have and need it. This is like a sport car, I dont want to drive at 300 km/h but I like to know that my car can deal with it😆

Yep, the hinges are usualy a pain in the ass, they are confortable but difficult to implement. We saw it with Davinci too. The strong magnets in the Ace or even better, the system in the Sapphire, is simple and efficient. I also like how the MP can be attached at side with the magnets (despite the problems with the painting). You can't do this with the Ace and I miss it. If you dont use hinges you can think in a system that can be placed on the side with the magnets🤔

The only think in what I am not with you is the refered about the terms of taste and IQC. I think the Davinci has much better flavour than the Ace and even the Aria, which is for me your better conduction vape in terms of flavour. The Starry V3 maybe is in the middle, the taste is not so bad as in the Ace but for me is quite worst than Davinci🤔

But if you have the same Aria flavour in the new Starry for mi is enaugh. Although it doesn't taste USA😜

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, you gave me a lot of feed! I agree with you about the vaporization temperatures especially since our devices are intended for recreationnal use rather than medical, I'll share your thoughts with the team!
Have fun!

All in all you are really a very good Xmax customer, I'll recommand you if we have a fews review units to give away for the new version Starry's release in 2023. Don't hesitate to remind me this when the time will come!

Yeah, especially when you're vaping those electronics ;D If the temperature was the case here, then this in anything but a proof that there's a bad insulation inside this device, which should be quite scary.
Yup, the electronics were cooked inside. Heat is a killer.

The Starry has a definite advantage over all the other vapes, and that is the ability to get HOT. When you want to get high, the Starry won't disappoint.

At the moment I can't share anything cause it's not finalized, stay tuned!

Hi, let me know the heat settings you used mostly with your dead Starry? Aafter I will share the infos with our engineers in order to improve insulation and/or limit the max T° a little for the next Starry's version.

and/or limit the max T° a little for the next Starry's version.

hissssss. HISSSSSSSSS.

While it's true the starry can be turned up hot enough to melt pig iron (for concentrates I assume), making artificial caps is not the answer. As long as you have a "decrease temperature" button, you have already built in a Max T limit.

If the vape is at temperatures that don't instantly combust, or well after, the integrity of your internals should never be a concern.

Yes, I understand you like how hot the Starry can be turned but I don't understand the sentence: "making artificial caps is not the answer"....please, what do you means by "artifial caps"?
Internal's integrity is a concern since, when affected, the device may stop to work. In my opinion it's something important to report to the engineers, I'll do it asap! (but I need to know the usage rate and T° selected by @Robert-in-YEG before) But we'll try another solution rather than lowering the max T°, no worries!
