After two years in the making, DaVinci has announced their latest herbal vaporizer, the DaVinci IQ. The new offering is a sleekly designed portable vaporizer for dry herbs, with some truly innovative features and pure, smooth vapor production to boot.
There’s a First for Everything
As DaVinci CEO Cort Smith put it, “we believe in building from the inside out.” That credo rings true in the DaVinci IQ, which features the first fully ceramic airpath the vaping industry’s ever seen. Like glass, ceramic delivers pure and unadulterated vapor, free of metallic or plastic tones, which is why DaVinci insisted upon a completely ceramic vapor path.
An all-ceramic airpath places the DaVinci IQ vaporizer in a league of purist vaporizers which includes the Silver Surfer and Da Buddha from 7th Floor and the VapeXhale Cloud EVO, one of the best vaporizers for desktop use on the market. But the smoothly ergonomic DaVinci IQ fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, making it one of the only portable vaporizers to meet the expectations of pure vapor connoisseurs.
The Latest, Perhaps Greatest “Smart” Vaporizer
DaVinci took into account the importance of temperature, which all makers of herbal vaporizers should do. The IQ features Precise Temperature Control allowing users to toggle between temperatures ranging from 250° to 430?, but users can also choose between four pre-configured settings at the most common vaping temperatures, as well switch over to “Boost mode” for rapid vaporization. This triple-function heating control gives you users full control over dry herb vape sessions. It’s convenient for those who know precisely how to heat their favorite dry herb strains, as well as users who want to quickly start vaping on-the-go with a preset, and those who need a quick “boosted” vaping session on-demand.
Like the Firefly 2 and upcoming Pax 3, the DaVinci IQ is the latest of a growing number of “smart” dry herb vaporizers with bluetooth compatibility. Users can control temperature levels via an app on their iOS or Android device, enabling them to prepare in a discreet manner their handheld vaporizer before vaping sessions. The DaVinci IQ mobile app also keeps track of key performance metrics, and enables you to power this innovative herbal vape on or off from your phone.
Compact Yet Powerful
The DaVinci IQ weighs only 5 ounces and boasts a compact design at about 4 inches high and 1½ inches wide, making it a very discreet vaporizer for those who vape outside. Despite its small size, it’s a powerful portable with an advanced conduction heating system. Although those who swear by convection may bemoan the IQ’s conduction method, it does have its benefits, one of which is a generally faster heat up time for on-the-fly vape sessions. The IQ also features a flavor chamber for vapers who want to add new aromas and tastes to their dry herb vapor.
The IQ delivers long vape sessions for a portable vape, with a 18650 battery lasting for over 3 hours of continuous vaping. Charging time is also 3 hours, so those who vape often might want to invest in a extra battery for seamless vaping.
As for the DaVinci IQ’s aesthetics, the unit is a thing of beauty--sleek, with a minimalistic yet modern look. The smooth-to-the-touch anodized aluminum exterior comes in four different colors: Gunmetal, Stealth, Copper, and Blue. And a 51-light grid display adds a touch of sophistication to your vaping sessions.
Like the polymath after which their company is named, DaVinci has produced something brilliantly inventive in the IQ.
