DaVinci has been one of the vaporizer industry’s leading pioneers ever since launching the original DaVinci vaporizer in 2012. The DaVinci IQ is the company’s third installment in their expanding vaporizer line. It features a zirconia vapor path and ceramic heating chamber to provide smooth, powerful vapor with every draw. It also comes with a Bluetooth app that increases performance and functionality.
To use the DaVinci IQ, you can either interact directly with the device or use the DaVinci IQ app along with your phone’s Bluetooth connection. The IQ has a 222 C maximum temperature, which is plenty hot enough to vaporize herbs. You can select the smart paths for the IQ to increase the temperature slowly within the unit in a certain temperature range. You can use the app to modify this to your specific preference.
The unit can also be used as a standard vaporizer and set your own temperature. It is great for individuals who already know what the sweet spot is for the temperature they prefer to vape at.
A boost mode is also featured on the unit. The temperature increases rapidly to its highest temperature. This is very useful for users wanting to get that last bit out of their herbs towards the ending of their session.
We really love that there is the option to use both precise control and the smart paths, since it provides your sessions with lots of customization. We like switching between these two modes.
This is the first vaporizer that comes with an all ceramic vapor path for maximizing flavor. The DaVinci IQ provides outstanding flavor and vapor production.
At lower temperatures, the draws are full of flavor and smooth. For a conduction vapor, it offers impressive flavor that is nearly as good as with a convection unit. At higher temperature, there is decent flavor and nicer vapor production. However, at higher temperatures, flavor is diminished much faster.
The vapor stays cool at all times due to the air path design. The smart paths is a very nice way of enjoying vapor. Draws are full of flavor at the start, and the draws continue becoming stronger with the temperature slowly increasing. It is an excellent way to experience your herbs subtle flavors as the temperature increases.
A ceramic zirconia vapor path has been introduced, which means you don’t need to worry that the air path will get damaged.
A ceramic zirconia pearl has been installed on the door of the heating chamber. It helps to reflect heat down to the bottom of the herbs that wouldn’t be cooked normally. It doesn’t actually provide the herbs with much more even cooking.
The unit is smaller than its predecessors and comes with a removable 18650 battery, which significantly improves the unit’s lifespan.
DaVinci offers a 10 year warranty on the vaporizer, which is among the longest in the industry.
The DaVinci IQ does under perform in this area. The device tends to die after only 2 sessions. It also takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours to completely charge the unit after it is dead.
This is a small device that is only 3.5 inches tall and 1.65 inches wide. It is easy to slip the device into your pocket and barely notice it.
Ease of Use
You can use the IQ by itself or with the app that is included. It is nice to have both options, which allows use to decide how they want to interact with their vaporizer.
The app is very user friendly and features an elegant design. However, if you prefer not using the app, you can simply use the buttons on the device instead.
DaVinci put a great deal of engineering and innovation into the IQ.
This vaporizer is very portable and small. It offers many features such as a mobile app, custom vapor cycles and Smart Path technology.
Its all ceramic vapor path offers user some of the finest tasting vapor coming from a convection unit. An even cook is achieved through help from the ceramic pearl within the heating chamber.
The bottom line is the DaVinci IQ is the perfect combination of technology, function and fashion.
