Davinci IQ2 Vaporizer Review

The DaVinci IQ2 Vaporizer certainly lives up to its namesake. While Leonardo Da Vinci is considered one of the greatest painters of all time, DaVinci creates some of the greatest vape devices on the market. But what sets them apart? The only thing that matters in the world of vaporizers — constant innovation.

The DaVinci IQ2 is an innovative step forward for the world of portable vaporizers, and another step ahead of the company’s previous iteration, the Davinci IQ. Their team strives to improve the modern cannabis consumer’s experience with advanced engineering, thoughtful design, and innovative technology. They do this by following the brand’s pillars of providing purity, innovation and control. All of these elements are incorporated seamlessly into DaVinci’s IQ2 device, making it worth the $300 price tag.

Clean design

The DaVinci IQ2 offers users an all-around clean experience. Following the legacy of the company, the IQ2 was built with a focus on purity. No metal or plastic parts come in contact with your herb or cannabis concentrates, and the entire device is made with medical-grade components. The glass-lined ceramic bowl ensures that your cannabis has clean contact from the start. Your vapor then passes through an all-ceramic vapor path with zirconia components to keep it pure on the pull through. The device is easy to empty and wipe clean with alcohol wipes after each cached bowl, ensuring that no lingering resin taints your next session. The thoughtful design not only maximizes the flavor or your vapor but also ensures the device is built to last.

Cool appeal

The design of this three and a half-inch tall portable vaporizer is sleek and compact, making it fit easily in your palm. You can feel the 159 grams of quality and how the device was designed to contour with your hand. The IQ2 is appealing to look at as well. It is made with a brushed anodized aluminum shell available in onyx, graphite, amethyst or cobalt to fit your personal style. There is a mirrored loading dock, ceramic zirconia mouthpiece, and even a laser-etched and sandblasted aluminum Air Dial™. Every single piece was thought of in the design process and polished for the consumer’s experience.

What’s included with your DaVinci IQ2 Vaporizer:

  • 18650 Battery
  • 10mm Mouthpiece
  • USB Charging Cable
  • Extra Pick Tool
  • Dosage Pod
  • Ceramic Extract Disc
  • (9) Pieces Organic Cotton
  • (9) Alcohol Wipes
  • 10 Year Warranty

Customizable Control

The proof of meticulous engineering is shown further when you take a look at the IQ2’s features. This portable vaporizer is dual-use, and the ceramic Dosage Pod can accommodate herb and concentrates, or both at the same time. The glass-lined Dry Herb Oven can hold a capacity of 0.5 grams of ground-up flower, and the Dosage Pod can hold a capacity of 0.2 grams of cannabis extracts. The pod also ensures that your cannabis burns evenly, no matter how much you pack it in. The IQ2 utilizes heat-not-burn conduction so that your vapor is full of flavor. There are also no loose parts included, making it easy to load and use this vaporizer on the go.

The IQ2 vaporizer features adjustable airflow with DaVinci’s trademarked Air Dial technology, which can reduce or increase your draw resistance across five levels. This feature alone results in vapor that is 50% cooler than other vaporizers. However, DaVinci takes it one step further and includes a simplified airpath design so that the device is easy to clean and keep your vapor tasting pure. It’s best to start the Air Dial at level two or three and then adjust from there, depending on how tightly you pack your bowls.

The addition of the light grid display allows you to control your vaping experience even further. This feature shows you the length of your draw, your dose per draw, the device’s precise temperature, and battery level. The advanced on-device Dosage Calculation feature allows you to input your strain potency and the amount of herb or extract added to the oven so that you can track and report your dose per draw and per session. You can adjust the temperature of the device within one degree of accuracy or use the trademarked Smart Path temperature control feature to achieve the ideal vaping experience, with your ideal dose.

You won’t have to worry about running out of power even with all of these advanced features. The IQ2 has an average battery life of nine sessions or 72 minutes of run time from one charge. The removable flat-top 18650 batteries take about six hours to recharge, but if you have a spare set you can swap out your drained battery with one ready to go. The IQ2 takes just one minute to reach 390 degrees Fahrenheit and reaches lower temperatures at a quicker rate. Although this can seem like a longer heat-up time, it allows you for a cooler vaping experience. For best results, we recommend taking short, small hits and packing your bowls tightly. However, if you enjoy clouds of vapor, you can pack the bowl loosely and take fuller, longer hits all day long.

Is DaVinci’s IQ2 a Smart Investment?

DaVinci’s IQ2 dual-use vaporizer is a complete rework of its predecessor, the IQ. It has new features that make the device even easier to use and clean. The IQ2 is a little larger and more expensive than the IQ, but it is worth the investment if you enjoy vaping on the regular. It produces tasty, potent hits without having to worry about battery life. This portable vaporizer does take a minute to heat up, but it is worth the wait every time. DaVinci delivered another small but powerful device that is built to provide a consistently clean cannabis consumption experience.
