Tear Down: The Starry Vaporizer by X Max

I’ve killed a hell of a lot of Vaporizers to get to this point……

The day has finally come; the final version of the Starry Vaporizer has just arrived! X-Max made some last minute changes to the design including a larger ceramic chamber and improved bottom latch that locks into place better. They also changed the internal chassis to isolate the airpath better. Of course, it’s what’s inside that counts. Let’s rip apart this vape, shall we?

The Starry Teardown

With most teardowns we are usually learning as we go. The Starry appears to have no screws or any obvious point of entry. We learned with the CFX teardown that looks can be deceiving. It is becoming more and more common for vaporizers to use vanity covers to hide these things.

Yup, there it is. The Starry has an adhesive cover on both sides. Each side has 2 sets of screws which hold the chassis in place.

When removing the vanity covers the buttons fell out which came as a surprise to us. This is the first time we’ve seen this in a teardown and it’s a great use of resources on XMAX’s part. The vanity cover’s dual purpose helps keep this vape so small.

The ceramic chamber is pure conduction and insulated for heat retention and for shock. So if you drop your vape the ceramic chamber is a lot less likely to crack. Heat retention preserves battery life. Newer battery vapes don’t have a consistent flow of energy going to the chamber so to save that precious battery life vapes intermittently heat your chamber every few seconds. A well insulated chamber slows down the cooling time which means the battery has to do less work to keep the chamber hot…. Science and stuff!

Very simple chassis. There isn’t a lot of room in the Starry for wasted space.

Just kidding, you shouldn’t do this. Actually, you shouldn’t do anything we just did. Disassembling your vaporizer voids the warranty. We tear apart vaporizers so you don’t have to.

    Awesome teardown, we appreciate these posts!

    I'm so confused. First, I thought that convection was the way to go and that this process, not conduction, did not burn your material. Second, I op, when I stop being confused, for a ceramic oven that your product sits in and glass stem for purity. Can anyone advise and straighten out my hesitance....

      I'd be happy to help! Both convection and conduction can fully extract material without any burning. Conduction is more like a traditional oven whereas convection is heated air being passed through your material. Conduction is generally a bit more efficient on battery life whereas convection tends to be superior in flavor. =)

      Heyo! We cannot recommend taking apart the Starry! We take the vapes apart so that you don't have to! Zakk

    My charging port just broke. Option 1 buy a battery charger. Option two take it apart and fix it. Got some skills soldering but i think as Zakk said better off not taking it apart. Thank you for your work

      Heyo! Happy to help out Roberto! If the charging port broke and it is still under warranty either contact xmax, or us (if purchased from us!) Zakk
