XMAX released a new version of the Starry June 2017 with a couple small bugs corrected and a few improvements made. We have the latest version available for you here. A big shout out to our main man Stickstones for working so closely with XMAX to help get the Starry just right for you guys.
Note: We teamed up with XMAX to create a POTV exclusive special edition where we re-worked the style and that's what you're seeing here. All the changes detailed below are going into the regular edition XMAX Starry available soon.
Battery lid fix
The latest version of the Starry has a nicely refined locking battery lid. On the original version of the Starry the lid would not latch automatically when you pushed it closed. You can definitely get it locked with a fairly easy hold, close and release method...but XMAX have made it simple by equipping the latest Starry with a smooth push locking battery lid.
We noticed, as well as many of our Starry compatriots that after 10-15 minutes of straight vaping the mouthpiece of the first version of the Starry the would get warm...a bit too warm. For most this isn't going to be a problem. As a solo vaporist most people don't push past 10 minutes of straight use however, in a group session this can become a bit of an issue.
Nonetheless, XMAX thought redesigning the mouthpiece was the best bet and they did so in such a way that it stays far cooler in the latest release.
As you can see there is not noticeable change from the outside, but looking at the underside of the mouthpiece you can see a bit more insulation and a slight tweak to the screen both of which are keeping things much cooler.
The Starry now has an oven just about 10% bigger than the original V1 Starry. Not going to change your life, but more is better right?
New display colors
You'll now get a the slightly more snazzy white on black color scheme instead of the original blue on black OLED display.
PCB bug fixes
PCB aka Printed Circuit Board aka the brain of the first version Starry had a couple small bugs that showed up on a few units. One was related to battery drain the other to some issues controlling the temperature. These issues only showed up a handful of times and of course were resolved for free immediately, but the XMAX team dug in, double checking all the coding for flawless performance.
