The XMAX V3 Nano by Top Green has the same shape and form as its super popular big brother- the V3 Pro- but it is a lot smaller and cheaper. It uses a new hybrid heating system and is geared toward new users who are looking for their first dry herb vape.
The V3 Nano retails for $50 (use TVG10 to save 10% from Vape-Smart.com), which is probably the lowest out of all vapes I tested this year. It's perhaps the most affordable dry herb vape available today.
In this review, I'll walk through the features and performance of this vape to help you decide whether it is the right vape for your needs. Check out my favorite vapes of this year for alternatives.
Design & features
The V3 Nano is very small. It's about as thick as my finger and is super discreet. It easily fits in a purse or a pocket and conceals in my palm with just the tip of the glass sticking out.
The housing of the V3 Nano is made from Aluminum, and it has one activation button on the front, with an LED ring around it.
Inside, there is a 1000mAh battery that charges via the USB-C port at the bottom of the device.
The glass mouthpiece sits on top and covers the chamber. The oven is made from metal, plated with silver, and has a capacity of around .2gr, which is perfect for a solo session.
The V3 Nano uses a hybrid convection/conduction heating system. It uses Conduction initially to heat up the vapor quickly (around 30 seconds heat up time), and then Conduction heating is pulled in with each inhale to increase the efficiency and boost the extraction.
The oven should be packed loosely to allow hot air to flow between the herb particles and extract the cannabinoids/terpenes.
The V3 Nano only has one temperature setting. There is no option to toggle and presets or change the temp. The good news is that the device gradually increases the temperature as the session progresses. So, at least you do get the benefits of variable temp. It's just built into the single heating profile.
Each session starts at 392°F (200°C) and gradually increases to 428°F (220°C), so you get a spectrum of terpenes that boil at different temperatures.
The XMAX Nano has haptic feedback, and it vibrates once it is ready to use. The LED around the power button will light up in one of three colors to indicate the battery level- Red is the lowest, and Green means full battery.
The V3 Nano has an isolated airpath, so the battery and electric components are separated to not contaminate the flavor.
Performance & vapor quality
The vapor quality is pretty decent when considering the price level. This is an entry-level vape, so obviously, it is not the best vapor quality out there, but it is decent for the price level.
There are not many dry herb vaporizers that sell for under $50 so the V3 Nano is kind of in its own category. I think it is a great vaporizer for beginners looking to experiment with vapes and see what it's all about.
It is super simple to use and almost foolproof. There is not much to get wrong here. The oven is tiny, so it will allow for the use of very little material each time.
I would not recommend this to advanced users, and if you consider yourself as one, check out the best herb vaporizers of this 2024 for some better options.
