DaVinci IQ vaporizer review
So DaVinci is the pioneer in the evaporator industry, ever since the company created their first original DaVinci evaporator in 2012. We saw that once a small company grew up with the release of the Ascent vaporizer, which in 2013/2014 made a big breakthrough on the market of vaporizers, received a well-deserved ovation and recognition. DaVinci IQ vaporizer is the third generation of Da Vinci’s growing vaporizer line, which has a 100% ceramic heating chamber, a 100% ceramic zirconium air path, intelligent IQ technology, and a Bluetooth application to increase functionality and productivity.
DaVinci IQ vaporizer has a unique, elegant design. So Maybe It’s small but weighs more than can be evaluated by size (0.3 lbs.). An additional charm to the IQ evaporator is provided by a light grid display equipped with a 51 dazzling LED dots display. The LED indicator is able to provide everything you need to know about the temperature settings. The internal parts of this upgraded device are protected by a high-strength anodized aluminum casing, adding a futuristic atmosphere. The finish of the vaporizer is smooth and pleasant to the touch. It lies in hands perfectly and easily fits your pocket. Thanks to the quality assembly IQ will not be broken when dropped from low heights, and because of that, a 10-years warranty from the manufacturer is not surprising at all. IQ is usually made in four colors: stealth, copper, blue, gunmetal.
How DaVinci IQ works?
When you take a vaporizer in your hands, turn it upside down, open the lid at the bottom, load the herbs into the heating chamber and close the lid. The evaporator is ready to start.
There are two ways to use DaVinci IQ, direct interaction with the device and via a Bluetooth connection with your smartphone, in which you will need to install the DaVinci IQ application.
When you use the Vaporizer without an application, press the power button on the side 5 times to turn it on. The evaporator will start on the Smart Path regime and begin to heat up. Heating time: 20 seconds. You can use the up or down buttons to select one of four intelligent temperature level settings (180-190 ° C, 190-200 ° C, 200-210 ° C, 210-220 ° C). The smart path starts from the lower limit of the temperature range, and then slowly increases to the upper limit. For example, smart path 4 starts at 205 ° C and then heats up to 220 ° C during the 10-minute session. This is great for those who like to raise the temperature throughout the session, adding automation and eliminating the constant interaction with the device. The temperature can be set from 0-230°C. For more fine-tuning sessions, smart ways are configured using the IQ application.

If you don’t want to use smart paths, just press the power button once and you will enter the Temperature Control mode. In this mode, the evaporator works like any other precise temperature control unit, which allows you to set the temperature to a certain degree by using the up or down buttons located on the side of the vaporizer.
Maybe For those who like technology, you can explore the evaporator with the DaVinci IQ vaporizer application. Which is available for free download from iTunes or Google Play. This application allows you to turn the IQ on and off with the phone, set the desired temperature, configure your own smart paths and track your interaction with the device during the session. This is the unique feature and completely new thing in the industry of vaporizers! You can also use the application for smartphones to activate the “Invisibility Mode”, which will reduce the number of LEDs in the application. This is recommended since the brightness of the LEDs by default can be too intensive. Yes, the application allows you to update the software with patches that are released, which in turn makes it possible to quickly eliminate failures and problems caused by older versions.
So It’s already mentioned that DaVinci IQ is the first vaporizer with a 100% ceramic heating chamber and a 100% ceramic zirconia air path, which makes the steam produced by the evaporator clean and simply delicious, cool, densely saturated with the taste and aroma of your herbs. However, at higher temperatures, the quality of taste is significantly reduced.
On the left side of the IQ, you will find a removable 3500 (18650) mAh battery that can easily be replaced with a spare one when charged. It’s charged through a micro-USB port. The micro-USB port is located on the back of the IQ. You don’t need to replace the entire DaVinci IQ vaporizer if the battery dies as it’s replaceable. The device can be used up to 1.5 hours on battery. The full charge of a battery takes about two and half hours.
Pros and cons

– Between the heating chamber and the mouthpiece, there is an additional compartment. Passing through it, the steam manages to cool down.
– The case is made of high-quality anodized aluminum.
– Light grid display, consists of 51 LEDs.
– Precise digital temperature control.
– Replaceable 18650 battery, very common on the market.
– Bluetooth feature.
– 4 temperature mode presets (max 220°C)
– More accurate set up through the Android or iOS application.
– Heats up quickly and ready to work 23 seconds after turning on.
– Despite the long use time, the charging time is too long. From zero to 100%, the battery needs 3 hours of charging.
– So the tank size is not big enough compared to similar vaporizers.
– The mouthpiece is made of cheap materials like on much cheaper products.
DaVinci IQ vaporizer is a premium-class evaporator; it has everything you want from a modern portable evaporator. If you’re thinking about buying a portable vaporizer for dry herbs, DaVinci IQ should be one of your first options.
